On August 6, 2019, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh came out against red flag gun confiscation orders.
Even President Trump declared that he is willing to sign this proposal into law.
However, Rush isn’t having it.
He described red flag laws as “a law which would allow law enforcement to identify a deranged individual before he goes out and shoots. In other words, you could apprehend somebody before they do it if they exhibit red flag-type behavior, like if they’re mentally ill or if they’ve attended a Trump rally, or who knows what it would be.”
Limbaugh then proclaimed that red flag laws are a “pipeline to gun control.”
He views this scheme as a way for the Left to “incrementally” get what they want, which is law-abiding gun owners’ firearms.
Who could oppose that, see? “Who could oppose the mentally ill not getting guns? “If it takes a red flag law to do it, Limbaugh, then we gotta support it — and, if you don’t agree with this, it just means you’re too big of a… You’re just.. You’re just… You’re just not flexible enough, Limbaugh!” That’s what people will say. Now, it’s a Democrat idea, which is its first disqualifier to me. It means it sucks from the get-go. But I’m going to be flexible here. I think it’s their way of incrementally getting what they want, which is your gun or guns.
For Limbaugh, kowtowing to anti-gun pressure will not satisfy the relentless Left:
But I know what they’re trying to do in the White House. They’re trying to remove the issue. They’re trying to take the issue away from the Democrats by agreeing to what they’re proposing. Not necessarily making it happen, just agree to it in words. You take the issue away. That’s the strategery. But the Democrats are not gonna compromise with Trump on anything! Especially now, a year and a half or less prior to the election.
The radio host sees a much bigger play in these debates. When commenting on the more radical factions of the Left, he observed that “they want your guns. They want everybody’s guns. They’re just like the communists: They want your guns. They want full confiscation, and there is no majority for that in this country.”
By conceding this ground to the Left, they will become even more emboldened and demand more concessions further down the line that bring them closer to their ultimate goal—civilian disarmament.
Red flag laws are already present in 17 states, and now appear to be at the top of the legislative agenda in the U.S. Congress.
Limbaugh nails it in his analysis.
This is a Rubicon moment for gun rights in America.
If Republicans yield to the Left on red flag laws, they will open up the floodgates for enormous gun grabs in the future.

Tim Tebow Finds a Higher Calling in Pro-Life Causes Rather than Sports Trophies
NRL News Today reported on Kansans for Life annual Valentine’s Day banquet held earlier this month.
Nearly 1,200 people were in attendance at this event.
The theme of this event was LIV-ing in victory, which referred to Super Bowl LIV.
Lamar Hunt, Jr., one of the owners of the Super Bowl Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, was the Master of Ceremonies for the event. In his opening remarks, he said:
I do not think it is a cliché to say we are in a life and death battle for the truth and authentic dignity of the human person. We need your full attention. You need to drop what you’re doing and join us, and this can be in so many ways: prayer, assistance to those in need, emails, phone calls, in-person meetings. Get educated about what we’re fighting about here. Really listen in and tune in.
Then Hunt said, “Please do something about it. Pray. Take action. If you don’t know what to do, ask somebody. Place this as a major priority in your life.”
Hunt concluded by saying that he often heard the phrase “Live in victory” from another resident at the retirement home where he visits his mother.
The main highlight of that evening was the keynote speech by Tim Tebow, former quarterback for the Denver Broncos.
“It is such an honor to be here,” Tebow said as he thanked the other speakers coming before him for their work to protect the unborn.
Tebow praised Hunt for “having courage in the face of a lot of other people who don’t have it and for your willingness to be up here and support this organization.”
“It really does mean a lot more than winning the Super Bowl,” Tebow remarked. He continued, “One day, when you look back and people are talking about you and they say Oh my gosh what are you going to be known for? Are you going to say Super Bowl, or we saved a lot of babies?”
Tebow asserted that Kansans for Life is not a philanthropy.
It’s a rescue mission. You know why we call it a rescue mission? Because when we say that, it puts a timeline on it.
When’s the last time you heard a rescue mission taking place in a month or a few years. No, a rescue mission means now. It gives you a sense of urgency. It says we have to go not because it’s our time, but because it’s their time. … I have to live a sense of urgency because while I might have time, they don’t.
Later, Tebow turned toward Hunt and Chiefs punter, Dustin Colquitt, who was also attending the event, he told them it was “awesome they won the Super Bowl.”
“It’s amazing. What an accomplishment! But you know the best part of that accomplishment is that it gets you an even bigger platform.” That platform, Tebow declared, can be used to support the pro-life movement.
“You see, my mom 32 years ago had doctors tell her she needed to abort me because if she didn’t, it was going to cost her life. And they didn’t even believe that I was a baby. They thought I was a tumor,” Tebow said.
Tebow jokingly recounted that as the baby of a family of 5 siblings, he was called “Timmy the tumor” by his siblings.
On a more serious note, Tebow said, “to make a long story short, when I was born, they found out the placenta wasn’t actually attached. So, the doctor looked at my mom after 37 years of being a doctor and said, ‘This is the biggest miracle I’ve ever seen because I’m not sure how he’s alive.’ … I’m so grateful that my mom trusted God with my life and her life.”
In 1986, Tebow’s father, Robert, begged the Lord to give him one more child. His father said, “I prayed for a preacher and got a quarterback.”
Tebow finished the event by stating that, “What you’re doing here matters. You’re fighting for life. You’re fighting for people that can’t fight for themselves. And my question to you is: Are you willing to stand up in the face of persecution, in the face of adversity, in the face of criticism, when other people are going to say it’s not worth it, when other people won’t stand beside you? Maybe not everybody is going to be with you. Will you stand up for what’s right?”
