Local law enforcement acts to confiscate guns and ammo from man they deem to be at risk

Red Flag Laws are tool for the left to harass Trump supporters. Even it due process is included, many don't have the financial resources to obtain an attorney to help them fight gun confiscation.


Excerpt -  

In a declaration filed in support of the petition, and obtained by The Californian, one of the petitioners, Kern County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Damian Nord, said it is his opinion and the opinion of others in the sheriff’s office, that "David Abbasi is emotionally unstable and poses a threat to himself or others, and that threat is magnified if he is in possession of firearms and deadly weapons."

Abbasi was arrested on gun charges earlier this year after a large pit bulldog attacked and killed his miniature pinscher on April 28 while Abbasi was out walking his dog. Abbasi pulled a loaded handgun and pointed it at a 15-year-old who had struck him in the head while Abbasi was trying to control the attacking dog.

Abbasi told The Californian on Friday that his beloved pet had just been killed before his eyes, that he was afraid the dog would turn on him, when the teen began striking him.

"I thought my life was in danger," he said. "That's why I drew my firearm in self-defense.

"But there was no discharge of the firearm," he emphasized.

He described the teen as 6 feet 2 inches and 180 pounds. "He's not a little kid," he said.


However, Abbasi does not have a permit to carry a concealed firearm. And the incident began a long string of phone calls and emails from Abbasi complaining to police about how the case was being handled and aiming accusations of corruption toward the BPD, the Kern County District Attorney‘s Office, City Hall and others agencies and officials.


Meanwhile, a warrant for Abbasi's arrest and a search warrant for his home and vehicle were obtained. On May 10, Abbasi showed up at BPD headquarters to deliver more evidence. He was arrested and officers found what has been described as an arsenal of guns and ammunition in the trunk of his BMW.

Red Flag Gun Laws: Yet Another Government Weapon for Compliance and Control

 Excerpts from The Rutherford Institute

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”—George Santayana

We never learn.

In the right (or wrong) hands, benevolent plans can easily be put to malevolent purposes.

Even the most well-intentioned government law or program can be—and has been—perverted, corrupted and used to advance illegitimate purposes once profit and power are added to the equation.

The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

Mark my words: red flag gun laws, which allow the police to remove guns from people suspected of being threats, will only add to the government’s power.

These laws, growing in popularity as a legislative means by which to seize guns from individuals viewed as a danger to themselves or others, are yet another Trojan Horse, a stealth maneuver by the police state to gain greater power over an unsuspecting and largely gullible populace.

Thirteen states now have red flag laws on their books. That number is growing.


As The Washington Post reports, these laws “allow a family member, roommate, beau, law enforcement officer or any type of medical professional to file a petition [with a court] asking that a person’s home be temporarily cleared of firearms. It doesn’t require a mental-health diagnosis or an arrest.”


In the midst of what feels like an epidemic of mass shootings, these gun confiscation laws—extreme risk protection order (ERPO) laws—may appease the fears of those who believe that fewer guns in the hands of the general populace will make our society safer.


Of course, it doesn’t always work that way.


Anything—knives, vehicles, planes, pressure cookers—can become a weapon when wielded with deadly intentions.

Red Flag Laws Won’t Solve Gun Violence

Excerpts -

The outrage from the Dayton and El Paso shootings has been daunting to say the least.


When emotions run high, rational thought is often ignored. Given the anti-gun media’s hysteria and willingness to race bait, we would be under the impression that only deranged white kids are the ones committing gun-related acts of violence.


However, gun violence is not exclusive to white America.


Journalist Zaid Jilani noted that there were two mass shootings on Saturday night in Chicago.

Rick Manning: Red Flag Laws Raise a Gigantic Red Flag

Excerpts-

Online and media crazies declaring all supporters of Donald Trump to be Nazis can be discounted as a legitimate threat to the safety of those of us who have historically supported the president, but when someone who ostensibly is well educated and part of the legal system completely loses it simply because of the existence of a Donald Trump supporter in his midst, that is a red flag.


Another red flag is the abuse of the FISA Court by politically motivated high-ranking FBI officials who launched a three year witch hunt of Donald Trump using “unverified and salacious” opposition research, with the help of a complicit media, in an attempt to initially influence and then overturn the results of the 2016 election. If the president of the United States is not safe from politically motivated abuse of the prosecutorial system, how can the average citizen trust that a law allowing legal “temporary” confiscation of firearms using “expedited due process” won’t be abused by every risk averse and politically motivated prosecutor in America?

FOUNDING FATHERS ON THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS

Excerpts - 


“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.” – Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, October 10, 1787


“A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined…” – George Washington, First Annual Address, to both House of Congress, January 8, 1790


“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” – Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776


“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787


“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams, Massachusetts Ratifying Convention, 1788
