Red Flag Laws 2022

Going to resurrect this topic as the elections are getting close and people need to be reminded of the sack of crap that Red Flag Laws are.

  1. Red Flag Laws are a direct violation of the 2nd, 4th and 14th amendments to the constitution.
  2. All it takes is someone to ACCUSE you of something (hell,“he scared me” will work) for them to come in and forceably take your weapons. No evidence, no warrant, none of the constitutional protections. Just a judges order, PERIOD!
  3. If a person is truely a “danger to themselves and others” then they need to find a legally sound way to handle the situation, Red Flag Laws are just another scheme to take our firearms.

There are already legal procedures in place for exactly this situation. They are for the commitment to institutions for evaluation of mental competence and safety. They are distinguishable from Red Flag laws in that they require a legal hearing with the individual having proper legal and medical representation before execution of a commitment order. Note that they are about removing the potentially dangerous (to self or others) person from general society, not the removal of only one possible implement of threat from the individual.

[WARNING: Violations of an individuals right of Due Process of Law occur weekly around the nation by enforcement of Red Flag Laws & similar types of legislation.]

Personally, I believe in resources! After all, I consider myself somewhat resourceful. Legal/Medical options exist nationwide, In the state of Louisiana we have what is better known as “Physicians Emergency Certificate.

These acts are meant to safe guard its citizens from harming themselves and other citizens.

ABUSE OF COURT PROCEEDINGS, inflicted by former martial, non-martial sex partners, dissimulated family members, or friends! These types of behaviors and actions are illegal and offenders will face legal ramafications but the damage will already be done! Possible consequences of false accusations are such as,
incarceration, damage to public image, job, loss of friends, family, property, and even financial ruin.

Don’t be shy! IF you disagree with me, please share!

I could not disagree with you more. My son’s ex GF accused him of threatening them and of a hate crime with ZERO evidence. But the court hit him with a retraining order and are keeping him from even touching a firearm for 6 months over this “persons” unfounded allegations. Abuse of court proceedings may be a thing in in Louisiana, but it sure isn’t in Michigan!

This gets into a weird area. We know false accusations happen. But many jurisdictions are very reluctant to press charges even when it’s proven, because it would (supposedly) have a chilling effect on real victims, who would be afraid to come forward out of fear that they could face reprisals if they can’t prove the charges. So subjects of false accusations are frequently left damaged, with little recourse or ability to claim restitution.

Agreed! Which is why I so vehemently oppose these Red Flag Laws. WAAAYYYY too easy for them to be abused!

I think there’s an actual term for this when it comes to red flag laws. I can’t remember what it’s called, but it’s when someone makes a false allegation against you simply to take your guns away.

My state has a law against false informing (that’s not the term I was looking for, but it’s a term). I’m not aware if anyone has ever been prosecuted for this crime.
