Wisconsin politicians are seeking to enact a draconian “red flag” law — moving the state closer to achieving the Left’s goal of full civilian disarmament. It is imperative that state legislators reject gun control and instead boldly defend the God-given right to self-defense!
Assembly Bill 350 (AB 350) and Senate Bill 352 (SB 352) have been introduced. If enacted, they would implement a “red flag” law, allowing the government to confiscate one’s firearms simply because they were reported by someone else as an imminent threat with a firearm — without a warrant or trial.
Although most of the bill sponsors are Democrats, “Republican” Representative Bob Donovan (R-Greenfield) is also a sponsor. This illustrates the pressure the Left is placing on Republicans to cave and join the effort to incrementally make it impossible for civilians to defend themselves.
“Red flag” laws are particularly dangerous as they allow the government to confiscate law-abiding Americans’ firearms — without due process or even an accusation of a crime — merely because they are labeled as “dangerous.” This violates both the 2nd and 4th Amendments. Furthermore, “red flag” laws wouldn’t even have prevented the mass shootings that leftists use as an excuse to enact them.
AB 350 and SB 352 are a blatant assault on the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and if passed, it would directly infringe upon it in multiple ways. Additionally, its provisions — particularly its gun registry — would enable both the state and federal governments to more easily implement further gun-control measures, including confiscations.
Furthermore, these bills only amount to advancing the Left’s civilian-disarmament schemes. For an illustration of its ultimate goal, one only needs to look at Canada or Serbia, which are in the process of totally outlawing firearms.
The ability of a person to defend him- or herself is a fundamental God-given right. Stripping individuals of this right would make them utterly dependent upon the government for their very lives and allow it to strip them of other rights without fear of reprisal.
Urge your state representative and senator to completely reject gun control — including “red flag” laws — and instead to boldly stand up for the Second Amendment and the rest of the U.S. Constitution.
