10 thoughts on “Minn. House Passes 2 Gun Control Bills

  1. Red Flag Laws are a clear violation of the 4th, 5th, and 14th Amendments by-passing due process and a fair trial before confiscation. In other words, guilty until proven innocent. Subjectivity will be the end of liberty and the US Constitution.

  2. Red flag gun confiscation is disingenuous and dangerous. These laws are only a political flexing of legislative might. If a person is truly a danger to themselves and others this wouldn't be a prudent and proper procedure in any instance. This flagrant violation of rights will only be perpetrated against cooperative law abiding citizens. This picks a fight where there wouldn't be one, pits law enforcement officers against the public, and directly against their oaths to uphold the constitution, for them to be the politicians' henchmen, and our likely executioners. It creates an unnecessary endangerment to anyone even near that address when a red flag ordered sqaud comes a knockin'.
    Firearms are very personal and treasured items, well cared for heirlooms in most households. The thought of letting anyone touch your firearms, let alone assume possession of a prized collection you've invested a lifetime to acquire at great expense, getting SWATTED by an anonymous tipster… you can see how this scenario pushes the "from my cold dead hands" decision to be made hastily under duress, under an immediate direct threat of violent force, to comply to property seizure and the stripping of your rights.
    The threatening person should be what is removed from a situation, hopefully to receive help. If in fact legislators are concerned about saving lives with gun legislation, look first to how crimes involving firearms are prosecuted and punished. You have all the laws on the books you need already. Try enforcing those first. Law a biding Americans are "Fast" becoming "Furious" with liberal politicians conniving to further strip our constitutional rights from under us.
    You would think they are afraid their constituents will shoot them. With the anti-lynching bill passage it seems they're also afraid of rope. Must be trying to save their necks from some kind of Bastille Day type of people's revolt storming the Capitol, dragging them outside and stuffing them into the awaiting woodchippers, that are lined up around the block. Perhaps a big surprise Arbor Day Celebration, changing the political landscape by painting it red.

  3. Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.

    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under "color of law" include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official's lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim.

    The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.
