“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” — Thomas Jefferson

A  Democrat-lead legislature in Massachusetts intends to pass legislation (H 2005) that would force doctors in the state to identify patients who have guns in their homes, and to target them for gun confiscation under the state’s “Red Flag” statute.

“In the midst of a Democrat-led, multi-state assault on the right to keep and bear arms comes this. A Massachusetts politician has proposed a bill to mandate that doctors in the state “screen” patients for gun ownership, and then report owners to the state for possible targeting by red flag statues.” — Gardner Goldsmith, MRC TV

Democrat Representative Jon Santiago’s proposed legislation calls for the state public health commissioner to “promulgate regulations establishing (1) the means by which and the intervals at which patients shall be screened for the presence of firearms in the home and (2) guidelines for safety counseling for individuals that screen positive for the presence of firearms in the home.”

The Boston lawmaker’s proposed bill empowers doctors to treat gun ownership like a disease and gun violence as a public health concern.

“We know that gun safety is a public health issue. As such, doctors are uniquely positioned to help prevent gun-related injury and death.” — Marty Martinez, Boston Health and Human Services Chief

Santiago’s bill systematically screens “all patients for the presence of firearms in the home.” Santiago and his colleagues run ruff-shod over that fact that Massachusetts gun owners have the God-given right as pointed out in the Second Amendment to “screen positive for the presence of firearms.”

“Simply put, not only the bill, but the terminology used shows the disdain for simply exercising our civil rights in the Commonwealth.” — Gun Owners Action League, website post

Although some community health centers in the state already question patients about gun ownership and guns in the home, Massachusetts does not have a formal firearm screening program and the state guidelines to implement it.

“Many doctors have already adopted the kind of intervention we’re discussing today as best practice. This bill would simply make that practice universal amongst all medical professionals.” Jennifer Lo, Medical Director, Boston Public Health Commission

Currently no other state has similar policies in place to implement a gun-question screening program, and no details have been provided explaining just how the newly proposed screening program would work.

But the bill’s proponents aren’t sticklers for details. They say the medical consults will be similar to those already being conducted by medical professionals with patients about substance use and mental health.

The truth is Massachusetts legislators are treating guns like a deadly pathogen, and gun owners like carriers. Under the guise of protecting the community, the Democrat legislators want to quarantine gun owners and confiscated guns via “Red Flag” to prevent perceived outbreaks of violence.

“For many years the anti-civil rights crowd has tried to make gun violence a public health crisis. Now it appears that they want to treat simple gun ownership as a disease!” — Gun Owners Action League, website post

Mr. Marks, by mandate of the District of Columbia Precrime Division, I’m placing you under arrest for the future murder of Sarah Marks and Donald Dubin that was to take place today, April 22 at 0800 hours and four minutes.” (Minority Report)

Pre-Crime is unconstitutional, yet Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw supports pre-crime legislation to take guns from people before any crime is committed. Clearly, he is betraying his oath of office as well as the voters who put him in that office.

“What we’re talking about is the ability to confiscate weapons when there’s clear evidence that violence is about to be committed.” [emphasis mine] Dan Crenshaw, R-TX

The reality of Red Flag Laws is that they nullify individual rights, and innocent people lose their 2nd Amendment rights and even their lives.

Yet Crenshaw says that Red Flag Laws aren’t “that controversial” becausethere can be “good ones and there can be bad ones.” Crenshaw doesn’t seem to understand that it’s never good to expand the power of the federal government at the expense of individual liberty. Human error is always possible; therefore, always error on the side of liberty.

John Anderton: Why don’t you cut the cute act, Danny boy, and tell me what it is you’re looking for?

Danny Witwer: Flaws.

John Anderton: There hasn’t been a murder in six years. There’s nothing wrong with this system it is…

Danny Witwer: Perfect I agree, but there’s a flaw. It’s human. (Minority Report, 2002)

“We do things without thinking about them at all; and we think things without the slightest intention of doing them.” Hector B. Poole, “A Penny for Your Thoughts” (The Twilight Zone)

 

Peace.

Red Flag Laws are dangerous to our liberties and freedoms. Red Flag Laws not only violate the Second Amendment and the Fourth Amendment, they also violate the Fifth Amendment, Sixth Amendment, Seventh Amendment, and Fourteenth Amendment.

Everything about Red Flag Laws is unconstitutional and ought to be resisted on all fronts. If Americans are complacent and apathetic about Red Flag Laws they will quickly lose not only their gun rights, but their due process rights as well.

Gun Owners of America is calling on President Donald Trump, Congress, and state legislatures to reject calls for gun control, including Universal Background Checks,  Assault Weapon Bans, and Red Flag Laws.

“It is frustrating to see President Donald Trump’s continued support for so-called Red Flag laws. These Red Flag laws, properly known as Gun Confiscation Orders, are incompatible with actual due process and allow for the confiscation of firearms from innocent Americans.” GOA

Stay vigilant, patriots.

The Department of Justice (DoJ) is working on implementing “more than a dozen” new gun control regulations. The DoJ plans to bypass Congress to implement the new regs, which “range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements” and the issuance of “new rules expanding criteria for people who do not quality for gun ownership.”

Under the expanding criteria, any person “who spanked his kid, or yelled at his wife, or slapped her husband” could be barred from owning a gun.

According to the NRA and Gun Owners of America, Hussein I (peace be upon him) wants to disqualify anyone who sees a psychologist from owning a gun, which might deter some people from pursuing needed mental health care treatment for fear of losing their guns.

In March, the NRA warned that Loretta Lynch would be another Eric Holder, yet 10 GOP senators refused to heed the warning and joined with Democrats to make Lynch the country’s top law enforcement officer.

One of the treacherous ten Republicans who voted for Lynch was Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who now is running for president. Thanks to the treacherous ten, Lynch’s DOJ, “now has the Second Amendment in its sights.”

Freedom and liberty are lost when Second Amendment supporters and NRA Bots no longer recognize that the First Amendment must be protected above all else and defended with greater zeal than the Second.

The NRA and their Bots fail to realize that unless they support the First Amendment they are aiding and abetting the totalitarian progressives in restricting the religious freedom of business owners and the political speech of grassroots organizations.

Once political correctness negates the First Amendment and religious conscience and offensive speech are abolished, the Second Amendment is rendered meaningless because nothing of significance is left to protect.

The First Amendment is the most important amendment to protect, but it’s not being championed like the Second Amendment has been.

Without the First Amendment, the Second Amendment is meaningless and so is the Bill of Rights for that matter.

What makes America exceptional is the right to freedom of conscience, and when Americans lose that right, America loses what’s made it exceptional in the eyes of the world.
