  1. What are they going to do next? You don't have to have a gun to commit suicide! Are you going to ban knives and clubs?

  2. Any real "Red Flag Law" should consist of making use of existing background records of gun owners to RED FLAG anyone being prescribed the "legal" psychotropic drugs ALL of the mass shooters were known to have been taking or recently had just quit taking. The prescription drugs that have the KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS of homicidal and suicidal thoughts. IF a person owns firearms and/or has immediate access to any, they should NEVER be prescribed these drugs. Guns and psychotropic mind altering drugs DO NOT MIX. HOW ABOUT someone grow a pair and take on the drug companies for a change??? 😡

  3. A real Leader would be aware of the US History of Government Tyranny. And would never agree to any bad Law which forces any US citizens to provide the address of all gun owners to the US Government. Nor would they agree to these treasonous Red Flag Law, which go against the intent of our founding fathers who wrote the 2nd Amendment. And any Law which is in direct conflict with the US Constitution and bill of Rights does not meet the basic requirements to become a law, and therefor cannot be tried in any court of law.

    All Americans should keep the type of gun that Americans feel is necessary to maintain a deterrent to Government tyranny and personal safety.

    Our current Democrat Politicians have armed their own Government buildings with AR 15's while forcing our children's schools to remain disarmed – which repels psychos from Gov Buildings, while empowering psychos to attack our children's schools.

    Hitler played the same game, and when children were murdered, Hitler also demanded that the good citizens give up all their capable rifles and hand-guns.

    Any politicians who support Red Flag Laws or any weapons ban will lose their political career in 2020. We voters will make sure of that !!!

    It looks again – that Democrats have disarmed all cities …..Making it easy for any psycho to shoot any gathering of people.

    All the mass shootings are a secondary affect of the Democrat Coup. Democrat Politicians have been disarming all city venues which attract psycho shooters !! And All that we are seeing now is an increase of what the insidious Democrat politicians have been doing for 50 years now. Rewriting immigration policy and tearing down US Borders to increase the Democrat Voter Demographic utilizing any desperate foreigners that Democrats can promise Free Sanctuary Cities to…..including the foreign criminals – which Democrats have promised to tie the hands of ICE agents to make criminals feel safer (MS13, Sinaloa Mexican Drug Cartels…..
    Mexicans and fast breeding Muslim migrants have now taken over Michigan, Minnesota, and Los Angels. And you are oblivious that you are paying the Welfare and Medical for each Democrat Migrant Voter !!!
    We will never see another non Mexican LA Mayor because Democrats have forced you to pay for all the migrant Democrat voters Welfare and Medical There is about to be a long term financial economic crash triggered.
    There is no real solution to the Damage that Democrats and the feeble minded voters who have voted for the Democrats have done.
    All we can do is remove Democrats from office in 2020. Keep the valuable migrants and deport ALL migrants who do not support the US Constitution and those who are not working or educating themselves to work. The Democrats have now promised to all migrants that you and I will pay for all the migrant student loans !!!!!

    We are going to replace the fowl Mouth Talib. and the other anti USA Muslim Omar. Primarily because they received the same threatening Muslim brainwashing that Obama received as a child, which makes them seek a Caliphate of our Government…… and this is also happening throughout Europe.
    I'm going to speak about an on-going COUP attempt of the US Gov by Democrats who are using common tactics seen throughout History.

    1) Democrats Force Gun-Free-Zones everywhere, but arm the Gov controlled Police with AR 15's. The plan is to take guns from good citizens, after these Gun-Free-Zones are attacked by criminals and psychos who seek any disarmed venue like children's schools, concerts, bars…. Then once innocent Gov disarmed people are murdered……make laws to take guns and track good citizens who have guns…..which is a primary goal of any tyrannical Gov.

    2) Democrats force our borders open in order to replace patriots, by Dangerous Migrant Voters who are bribed by the Democrats to vote Democrat. While your tax dollars are given to the migrants who will replace your Government and you patriots in a coup over time.

    3) Democrats seek bribe money from the FEP (Financially Elite Psychopaths) who own all (News Medias, Corporations, and World Level Fractional Banks, and Hedge Funds…)
    With this money and power , the FEP can bribe any Democrat, and these treasonous Democrats will seek the Free Money and Power.

    4) Democrats have rewritten our immigration security policy, and are shipping, Flying, and busing in millions of Dangerous Migrants – And positioning those Migrants within US States in which the Democrats want to capture and COUP for a White House and Senators positioning Democrat Voter Demographic…. A COUP…. as we see in California by using Mexicans. And in Minnesota and Michigan by using Muslims…..and this is how AOC and Talib were able to gain a seat in Congress….. Their constituents were Muslim, Not American. There is not separation of Church and State within Islam !!!!

    I have provided 4 top level insidious tactics that Democrats are using to coup the US Gov. But there are many more….including false Dossiers, brainwashing of the Greedy Feeble Minded races and women to hate Republicans and accuse them of being racist and colluding with Russia. Did you study Press-Gate, and the Kavanaugh appointment?

    The Democrats are insidious, and cannot be accused of a Coup Attempt by any single action above…..but when all actions are studied closely, then the light begins to shine onto the dark plot by the Democrats to coup the USA Gov.

    And yes, this is happening in Europe. The money that is flowing from the FEP, and down to the bribe seeking Democrats and Leftist Groups can only be stopped if you vote Republican in 2020. I cannot detail the End Game. But if you vote Republican in 2020, you will see the FEP bribed criminals exposed.

    A quote by Cicero in the year (43 B.C)

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot
    survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable,
    for he is known and carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves
    amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling
    through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar
    to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he
    appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He
    rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night
    to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so
    that it can not longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared."

  4. Funny how all the right wingers who are afraid of the big bad government are perfectly ok with Trump stealing people’s land on the border for his stupid border wall.

  5. I don't really like Trump, but I agree with him on this one, guns need to be taken away from unstable people. People may not like this, but in the long run, they will come to realize this is a good thing.

  6. President Trump. He betrayed his country. He betrayed and deceived Americans by giving leftist democrat dictators everything they want – his Red Flag and Pre-Crime Prison and other new gun laws. Trump murdered the constitution and the 1st 2nd and 4th amendment rights. Now only the bad guys and corrupt government will have guns. Removing guns from good citizens is the holy grail of all dictatorships.

  7. Red Flag Laws violate the "seizures" clause of the 4th Amendment, the "due process" clause of the 14th Amendment and the entire 2nd Amendment. Taking constitutionally protected property by Magistrate without cross-examination of witnesses or jury trial is NOT juris prudence. Judges creating a 2nd class citizen without mental health infrastructure to treat them is the same policy as leaving the drug addicted and mentally ill to die on city streets.

  8. What are Red Flag Laws? Red Flag Laws are laws that violate the 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 14th amendments.

  9. They say the law will save lives, and then ask at what cost it only takes away peoples rights for a few weeks? In NY we had a policy called "stop and frisk" where the police went into high crime areas and searched people at their discretion for illegal guns. It worked they removed many illegal firearms form the street and saved lives I guess. At what cost it only took away peoples rights for a few minutes…. A judge stopped it, if we are not will to take away peoples rights for a few minutes looking for illegal guns , why is it ok to do so for a few weeks with legally owns guns.

  10. And how does someone who doesn’t have a PhD in the field of psychology determine that I am unsafe

  11. If I haven’t committed a crime how does anyone ever arrest me to take my guns That would be prior restraint it doesn’t work that way

  12. So basically people are going to tell lies on good gun owners who are not a threat and crest chaos. I’m positive there are a lot of holes in this.

  13. Under most red flag laws you are never allowed to know the name of your accuser !!! The hearing is held in secret and you won't know anything about it until the police show up at your door !!! How can this be constitutional ?????

  14. This video from The Daily Mail shows Mr. Trump blaming mental illness exclusively for firearms violence
    i will let my comment on that video stand for this one as well

  15. The woman that was talking was not the one implementing this law,All she did was explain it, and yet people dislike the video, people logic at its finest.

  16. How hard would it be for the law (FBI, NSA, Police) to find ‘planted’ false information and data linked to whomever American they want? Then enforce RED FLAG law via the courts with said false information? Is that Due Process? how accurate can that evidence (tech) be proven? Very Dangerous!

  17. So basically an excuse to gun grab. Bullsh#t

  18. this is minority report pre-crime/ thought crime.

  19. I just red flagged this video.

  20. Not only is it an infringement on constitutional rights, it would become a money racket for the government to bankroll further right infringements.

  21. Need many more laws just like it. I'm sick of Republican shooting out schools

  22. Note the soothing marimba music in the background….

    They want you to feel calm as they attempt to justify the latest attack on your freedoms.

  23. She says it so sweetly, hugs you close, kisses your neck and whisper "I know what's best for you, I love you" at the knife slices into your back.

  24. What Are Red Flag Laws? Just another way to take your Rights away.

  25. What Are Red Flag Laws? Just another way to take your Rights away.

  26. all people with guns are threats to these sleezy politicians. respect the AMERICAN CONSTITUTION

  27. Great my child who is mad at me can get me in trouble. I think they need real evidence

  28. Supporting red flag laws disqualifies you from being a 2A supporter and American.

  29. So another words was she saying the police can just pop up on your door and say such and such called when nobody really called and they'll just take your s*** write good luck with that coming to my house cuz we going to make world news with a new stock market trading like the Dow Jones shot-for-shot

  30. "Red flag law" RAT LAW, Brown Shirts just like Hitler.

  31. Snitch laws already being abused.
    It's like getting "swatted".

  32. great way for your ex-gf to get you swatted.

  33. Do those red flag laws work on the gangs in the big cities.oh why are they still killing 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  34. The RFL is stripping a person of their rights. They can take the guns away but crazy people will just resort to using VBID just like Iraq. We need mental hospitals brought back.

  35. This opens the door for tons of abuse. Anyone who questions government or their motives would be viewed as a threat to others and guns taken without due process, completely undermining the bill of rights. Question the government you must be crazy and a danger to others; no rights for you.

  36. Red Flag Laws: A method for the government to confiscate guns without due process bypassing the Constitution. A multiple felon has more rights than a gun owner who has never been arrested, never had a history of mental problems, never been evaluated by a psychologist and based on one-sided, unverified information by a person the accused may never get to face in court. Assumed GUILTY until PROVEN INNOCENT. Not how our system works. Also seem to be minimal consequences for the accuser who may have fabricated the story against you.

  37. More like false flags to take the peoples rights away. "It is well enough that people of this nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Henry Ford

  38. kids today we're going to study the civil war of 2020. Back when mentally ill leftist people tried to strip our constitutional rights. They LOST

  39. Another Patriot Act in the making aimed directly at American Citizens. So, when you divorce or have a neighbor that does not like what you say or someone on the internet wants to silence you your guns can be confiscated. If you think it will end there you are naive. Following that will lead to a Mass Incarceration of Americans in Prisons and Mental Institutions. Remember all those nuts that used to talk about FEMA Camps. They are coming. Trump is playing right into the Democrat's hands.
