ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In the wake of the tragic shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, the big answer to gun violence that is coming out of Washington is “red flag” laws, which allow government law enforcement to kick in your doors without warning or a search warrant and confiscate your guns. This will be done in the name of “public safety.”

As it stands, anyone could finger you as a potential shooter — an ex-wife, a gun-grabber neighbor, someone who didn’t like a letter to the editor you wrote. This move would turn our legal system upside down because it would mean you would have to prove your innocence and sanity instead of the government having to prove you guilty or insane.

The potential for abuse and tragedy for both civilians and law enforcement alike is too great to comprehend. Implementation of this type of law would probably end in civil war.

This is the dream law the global socialists have been waiting for and RINOs are starting to cave. But history will not be kind to those in government and law enforcement who advocate this kind of insane, unconstitutional law. Future historians will look back and say, “This was the law that killed America.”
