Donald Trump’s response to Chris Cuomo is a perfect illustration of why ‘red flag’ laws are dangerous

August 14, 2019

  After some people did some things in El Paso and Dayton Donald Trump came out in favor of so-called “red Flag” legislation which would allow the confiscation of a person’s weapons without due process and without a crime having been committed.

  Lindsey Graham has been taking about “red Flag” gun laws for months and now other Republicans are beginning to coalesce around the idea of this confiscatory gun law. 

  As you can tell, I oppose this type of legislation because of the potential for abuse. In addition to a scorned lover or a disgruntled employee or employer using this type of law to seek revenge on a person there is always the real possibility the government will abuse it also. Could political speech on the internet cause a politician to determine a person is dangerous? I believe this scenario is more likely than the former one I proposed.

  If  you have been anywhere near the internet over the last couple of days you might have heard that Chris Cuomo had a little bit of a nervous breakdown and went on a profanity-laced rant over the word “fredo.” Donald Trump, as he is want to do, decided to troll the CNN personality on Twitter and while he probably thought he was being clever the President actually gave us a perfect example of the dangers of “red flag” legislation.

  What more needs to be said? This tweet encapsulates all of our concerns over “red flag” legislation and the possible abuse of the law by a person seeking retribution against another–but even more frightening by a politician against a person on the other side of the aisle.

  If this law is passed in the next Congress there will be a Democratic President in 2020 because gun owners will not go to the polls. The Democrats have been trying to criminalize the opposition for years and you can bet they will use “red flag” laws to thwart the Second Amendment and confiscate weapons for political posts people make on the internet they consider dangerous–and by dangerous I mean posts that disagree with the liberal agenda.

    The President is old enough and experienced enough to know if you try to please everyone you please no one. Let’s cross our fingers.

    Trump is having fun “Trolling” the enemy and showing the public the madness – “insane and subjectivity” – all this is. The majority of ‘real Americans’ “Not going along” w/ the left’s regime means they’re ‘crazy’ … which of course is a 180º from the truth ~ who purport lies as truths and truths as lies.
    For the new and improved Utopian “Globalist” the only ones who would have gun are their personal body guards! and totalitarian military … or they’d have the newest in tech blasters!

      I know Trump was trying to troll Cuomo but he does support red flag laws and that is a problem.

        You might like this tweet, Joe M (I’ve shared some of his vid on Sun posts) responded to Bill Mitchell, who’s suppose to be ‘awake’ to the subtle warfare going on and reasoning of destroying the Constitution.
        When lying usurpers are in power positions it only goes to ruin, another reason for making sure voting machines and ballots are on the up and up.
        There’s another things that could be ‘flagged’ – is the person a “competent (sane) American?” Who’d “determine” THAT! 🤔 [or those running for gov. positions … ] 1 thing begets another …

        That’s what they do, isn’t it? They get people to support incremental violations of our rights and this Bill Mitchell should understand you cannot give them anything!
