Question #51: Do you support Red Flag Laws?
No, I do not support red flag laws. I am a Constitutional Republican and I stand with our Constitution.
In the United States, a red flag law is a gun control law that permits police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves.
Then a judge makes the determination to issue the order based on statements and actions made by the gun owner in question. Refusal to comply with the order is punishable as a criminal offense. After a set time, the guns are returned to the person from whom they were seized unless another court hearing extends the period of confiscation.
In Oregon, Washington, Maryland, and Vermont, Florida, California, Connecticut, and Indiana these orders are known by various names: Extreme Risk Protection Orders, Risk Protection Orders, Gun Violence Restraining Orders, risk warrants, and Proceedings for the Seizure and Retention of a Firearm.
As of August 2019, 17 states and the District of Columbia have passed some form of red-flag law. The specifics of the laws, and the degree to which they are enforced, vary from state to state.
Such laws are now on the books in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia.
Our 2nd Amendment is beautifully written and should be respected as such. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
This law allows for people to be vindictive, to have authority over you and your constitutional rights. Anyone can call and accuse you of being a danger to yourself or others with no justification - I can’t support that.
I am running for office to be the change I want to see. Thank you for your support and VOTE. #VoteWisdom4Congress
