Vice President Mike Pence Endorses Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders

Published

Vice President Mike Pence is hopping on the red flag gun confiscation bandwagon.

According to a report from Fox 59, Pence believes Indiana’s red flag law could serve as a model for the rest of the nation to follow.

On Wednesday, the VP held a roundtable discussion over red flag laws with several Indiana law enforcement officials. Pence claims that this discussion is part of a larger conversation the Trump administration is participating in order to prevent mass shootings like the ones in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

“I’m here to listen and to carry back Indiana’s experience into our discussions at the White House,” Pence stated.

Pence praised Indiana’s red flag laws for preventing incidents of gun violence in cases involving mental health issues and suicide.

“While we will always defend the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms, we don’t want people who are a danger to themselves or others to have access to firearms,” Pence declared.

Indiana’s red flag law was passed after an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer was killed in 2004.

In Indianapolis, red flag laws have been invoked more than 700 times, giving police the authority to confiscate firearms from an individual who is suspected to pose a threat to themselves or others.

Although Pence claimed that President Donald Trump is examining red flag laws as a means of preventing mass shootings, he has not indicated any concrete steps towards pursuing a national policy.

“As we look at these proposals in congress, they’re designed to encourage states to adopt these laws, because the ability to process these warrants, to give individuals the due process that’s essential to protect the constitutional rights of every American, best happen in state and local jurisdictions,” Pence said.

Currently, 17 states have adopted red flag laws.

Many gun rights advocates fear that these kinds of laws pose a major threat to basic civil liberties such as due process.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
