In the year since the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school, more and more states have passed laws making it easier to take guns away from people who may be suicidal or bent on violence against others, and courts are issuing an unprecedented number of seizure orders across the country.

Supporters say these “red flag” laws are among the most promising tools to reduce the nearly 40,000 suicides and homicides by firearm each year in the U.S. Gun advocates, though, say such measures undermine their constitutional rights and can result in people being stripped of their weapons on false or vindictive accusations.

The article goes on to state the following:

Nine states have passed laws over the past year allowing police or household members to seek court orders requiring people deemed threatening to temporarily surrender their guns, bringing the total to 14. Several more are likely to follow in the months ahead.

    I Dare them to take mine. My Constitutional right is the right to bear arms. Not only to protect ourselves, but to also protect ourselves from Government Tierney/Dictatorship.
    “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.”
    I will never be one of those sheep blindly being to the slaughter without a fight!!!!!

      Amen to that. I will never comply with These leftist dirtbags. They better be ready for a sleeping giant to awaken. These red flag laws are unconstitutional and any police officer who enforces this unconstitutional law and goes to someone’s house to try to take their guns is an enemy of the state and the country. Police officers and law enforcement took an oath to protect and uphold the constitution of the United States, and should never enforce or comply with these laws.
