Count South Carolina State Representative Stewart Jones as another opponent of red flag laws.
After all, these two are some of the most prominent Republicans backing these proposals.
In Jones’ view, these laws are “unconstitutional and goes against the very fabric of our Republic, eroding both due process and a person’s natural right to self-defense.”
The South Carolina State Representative argues that the passage of red flag laws “will be another blow toward our liberty, much like the indefinite detention provisions of the 2012 NDAA, warrantless wiretapping of the PATRIOT Act, metadata collection by the NSA, and the expansion of the unconstitutional FISA courts.”
Unlike most short-sighted Republicans, Jones sees the potential for massive abuses further down the line.
People should also be concerned that red flag laws will be used to target political adversaries and used against anyone that government officials may disagree with. President Trump, of all people, should know what it feels like to be wrongly targeted, as both the FBI and FISA courts were used against him when he ran for office.
Jones does not believe the media sensationalism regarding expanded gun rights. He cited data from the FBI and the Bureau of Justice Statistics that show “violent crime rates have been in decline since the 1990s, despite rises in public perception of crime rates.”
He also argues that mainstream media outlets ignore “the countless incidents where a good person with a gun has prevented a tragedy, even though these positive incidents happen far more often than not.”
Instead, he proposes increased gun liberalization to address the issue of public safety.
This is why if elected officials truly want to help these situations, they must eliminate laws such as gun-free zones that restrict law-abiding gun owners from carrying in specific places. According to the Crime Prevention Center, since 1950, 94 percent of mass shootings have occurred in gun-free zones.
Jones is in touch with his pro-gun constituents, who have become increasingly worried about the size of government and its potential to abuse citizen’s rights.
As a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, I have had many conversations with constituents concerned about giving the government any more authority over our God-given right to keep and bear arms. With an alarming number of elected officials unable to see that the answer to the problem is more freedom, not less, we should never forget that the worst forms of genocide have always started with the erosion of due process and the confiscation of firearms.
The South Carolina elected official concluded by urging all elected officials to abide by the Constitution and respect the rule of law.
Therefore, I’m calling on all elected officials to obey their Oath to the Constitution by defending the Bill of Rights and opposing any new attempts to pass red flag laws.
Representatives like Jones will likely play a major role in keeping squishy Republicans like Lindsey Graham in check in times when the temptation to compromise on gun control is very high.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
