Red Flag Laws and What they are Really About

Red Flag

What A Red Flag Represents

In my home state of Florida, a red flag on any beach is a warning to swimmers of severe and dangerous conditions.

The Democrat's are calling for serious "Red Flag," laws, and the fact that they are pushing so hard for these laws should concern every American as the democrat's are taking the United States of America into very dangerous waters.

The Democrat's Red Flag Laws

After the recent shootings in El Paso Texas and Dayton Ohio, the democrat's have been demanding "Red Flag" laws.

According to the New York Times:

What are red flag laws?

They are state laws that authorize courts to issue a special type of protection order, allowing the police to temporarily confiscate firearms from people who are deemed by a judge to be a danger to themselves or to others.

In case anyone hasn't been paying attention, democrat's, along with their propagandist news networks have been calling the President of the United States of America and all his supporters, "White Nationalists." Which automatically places all Trump supporters under the Red Flag Laws.

Yesterday, Nicole Wallace of MSNBC outright lied when she announced on her show that President Trump want's to "exterminate Latino's."

Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker have all been speaking about Red Flag Laws to remove guns from "dangerous Americans" for months. Meanwhile, they are calling all Trump supporters "dangerous Americans."

Yesterday Cory Booker demanded that President Trump not hold any more "racist," rallies.

A few days before that, Bernie Sanders chastised President Trump after he denounced "white supremacy." Sander's stated that the President "must stop criticizing," the fact that the democrat's are flooding our nation with illegals, and they are using Taxpayer dollars to do it.

Do you see what is unfolding right before our eyes?


To All American's

We all want to see gun violence stopped. Not only the violence that we witnessed this past weekend, but also the gun violence that happens in Chicago Illinois on a weekly basis.

CBS Chicago reported on Monday that over this past weekend:

7 Killed, 46 Wounded In Weekend Shootings; ‘It’s Destroying The Fiber Of Our Communities.

The shootings in Chicago this past weekend were mainly "black on black," crime.

These shootings were mostly not reported on major news network's because they do not uphold the democrat's "white nationalists" narrative.


Power Grab

The Red Flag Laws Are A Power Grab

If you are a Trump supporter, you fall under the "Red Flag," laws.

If you are a Christian, you fall under the "Red Flag," laws.

If you speak out against the democrat's policies, you fall under the "Red Flag," laws.

If the democrat's get their way, they will strip all American's of their First and Second Amendment rights.

This does not only apply to Republican's. It will affect all American's.

If the people of Baltimore speak out against Elijah Cumming's robbing them of millions of dollars meant to better their community and help them overcome poverty, they will be under the "Red Flag," flag laws.

Wake up America. Time is short.

Turn back to God before it's too late. If the democrat's get their Red Flag law's passed, they will have silenced all of America and next we will see the demonic New World Order complete.

Pray for our President and our nation.

All American's of all races need to stand united.

    I sure hope so abwilliams. I like him too, but I also remember that he was a "never Trumper," early on.

    No, feel free.

    I finally trust Lindsey Graham, he has been quite a force since he stepped out of John McCain's shadow (God rest his soul) I think it will be fine.

    Hi A B Williams,

    I hope she doesn't mind if I borrow that quote! It's right on target.

    That seems to be the goal of communist socialism. They disarm the population, and put the people under their full control.

    When anything happens involving a gun, the democrats and the MSM light up with stories about how important "gun control," is.

    I honestly hope that the President does not ever agree with them in regards to these laws. Lindsay graham is supposed to be working on putting together a plan for Red Flag laws. I'm not sure I trust him. We shall see...

    Yesterday one of my friends, whose family fled Cuba, responded to a post I shared on FB, 'Making good people helpless won't make bad people harmless', she wrote:

    "Do you know that the Cuban people never rebelled against Castro? Because they were not allowed to have weapons! They still are not allowed, only the Regime is allowed. Communism/Socialism DOES NOT WORK!!! (picture emoji here of her slapping her forehead) Don't people get that???"

    Cubans had no means to stop the tyrannical Castro nor to stop any dictator since.

    Hi WBA, You are so right! Guns were taken away from people in Germany during the time of Hitler, and look what happened.

    Venezuela when guns were taken, there was a huge spike in that nation's murder rate. I totally agree with you!

    The Democrats don't want guns for anyone but for their own protection. Just look at the gated communities that wealthy liberals live in, all protected by armed guards. Look at the massive security for big liberal Hollywood types such as at the Academy Awards, they hire the best possible people with guns, while denying the average America their right to self protection!

    No they have no problem with guns if the're in charge of them!

    Hi Paula,

    I read a news article this morning that stated that the production company decided not to release the movie. They had a lot of backlash and they made the right decision.

    It's hard to imagine how people can't see how much propaganda we're all seeing with the mainstream media, the democrat's and Hollywood.

    They all have the exact same narratives.

    Thank you for reading and commenting. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

    Betty......I knew nothing of this until now. Thank you for the info..(I think) How low can Hollywood go? I suppose that's an unnecessary question! At the moment, I'm thinking this may be just another movie I'll pass on. The theme alone depresses me. I can't imagine sitting through it.

    Enjoy the rest of your evening, honey.. Peace. Paula

    Hi to everyone involved with this conversation.

    I wanted to share a link with you all.

    Hollywood is set to release a movie in September called, "The Hunt."

    The movie is about Trump supporters being hunted and killed.

    This is incredibly disturbing.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/movie-showing-elites...

    Fox News ran a story on it as well.

    https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/todd-starnes-the-h...

    Many are protesting this movie. The maker of the film says that it will be released despite the protests and controversy.

    Betty,

    Thank you for this good research. Very good information.

    Hi, Angel.

    I remember watching the mainstream news back in the 80s when regular anchors reported the facts about stories and let the public make up their own minds and draw conclusions and opinions. This no longer happens on any mainstream news outlet. Just listen to the language they use. I'm not talking about opinion show hosts--you expect them to slant the story to the left or right, depending on their own positions. However, if you still expect regular news anchors to just report the facts, you are going to be disappointed.

    No matter what good Trump does (record low unemployment for everyone including minorities, a great economy, strong military, better trade deals, getting remains from North Korea, getting hostages released), the fake new (not Fox) doesn't report it or they try to put a negative spin on it.

    When Hillary Clinton was embroiled in the controversy of deleting 33,000 emails, Benghazi scandal, pay-for-play schemes, etc., other networks gave this little if any coverage. They wanted her to win. Yet, when the Russia collusion hoax was obviously a hoax from the start, with more and more information coming out about its fraudulent inception, the mainstream media ran with the story. They no longer care about facts or investigative journalism. They run stories based on lies without seeking sources (unless they are anonymous) and confirming the information before reporting it.

    Remember Nicholas Sandman? The teen from Covington High School whose character was assassinated because he wore a MAGA hat and was falsely accused of taunting the Indian guy who was chanting and banging the drum even though it some Black Israelite hate group that was doing the aggression? The media ran with that story and ruined that boys life, which is why so many networks were slapped with huge lawsuits from his attorney. Later, Sandman was vindicated, but very few networks issued apologies for the devastation they cause him and his family.

    Have you noticed how much more coverage the mainstream media is giving the El Paso shooter over the Dayton shooter? It's because the mainstream media can run with the white supremascist angle in El Paso and try to pin in on Trump; whereas, the Dayton shooter was a socialist who supported Sanders and Warren, Antifa, and communism. The fake news media isn't about to try to pin his acts on any of their comrades in the Democratic Socialist party.

    Look what the news media did to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. His reputation is spotless. Despite his clean character and great family, the media tried to absolutely ruin him and destroy his pristine reputation, all because they did not want a conservative man on the bench. The media did this with no real proof of misconduct on his part. Just some unsubstantiated claim from a whacko back in high school.

    The Left is desperate to take power from the American people, and they are willing to do so by force and fascism. They use the mainstream media as their arm to do it. We don't call CNN "Clinton News Network" for nothing.

    Trump's approval rating among Hispanics just went up 5%, and it's rising among African Americans. It appears that Hispanics who have entered our country through legal channels are angry that the Dems aren't trying to stop those who don't follow the law like they did. Also, they are enjoying record low unemployment, which makes their lives better off than under Obama. There is dignity in work, not entitlements.

    Stay tuned....I'm sure there will be more fake news stories to come. Let's watch and see.

    Angel Guzman, I wanted to add that Obama used the guise of "Fake News," to push this act into place. He said that it would combat it, when in fact the act legalized the use of propaganda on the American people.

    Also, it only makes sense that it would be used on left-wing news networks.

    I personally don't watch the vast majority of mainstream media, no matter if it's left or right leaning. The best way to know what's really going on is to research.

    Here's a video of Obama himself, giving his take on combating, "fake news." It's incredibly dishonest, as we know because propaganda is currently being used on the American people.

    Good morning Angel Guzman,

    The "Smith Mundt Act," was enacted in 1948. It was an act that was set in place to ensure that "propaganda" or "Government created media used in foreign nations would not end up in the United States. For decades it was illegal to use any form of warfare type propaganda on the American people.

    In 2012 under the Obama administration a revision was introduced called the "Thornberry Smith amendment." It was introduced to the Committee on Foreign Affairs in 2013. It's called the H.R. 5736, "The Smith Mundt Modernization Act of 2012." which authorized the use of domestic dissemination and information (propaganda) meant to be used on foreign nations, and for "other uses," and could now be used right here in the USA.

    You can look up the act itself for all the details.

    The Amendment was added to the NDAA (National Defense Authorization act ) this act was voted on by the US House of Representatives in 2013, and was included in the US "Defense Spending Bill." So the amendment was voted in to action, and included in defense spending using US Taxpayer dollars.

    In other words, we fund the propaganda that the US Government uses on us.

    Here's a video of a reporter talking about that act when it was enacted, he breaks it down quite well, and it's only about 4 minutes long.

    What law in 2012? I believe under Reagan Administration a law happened in 80s that media no longer had to present both sides. Fox News is a propaganda channel and has been caught many times lying. You must be in some weird universe if you think the media is an enemy. If you don't like them reporting the news its fake now? There is a reason minorities don't vote GOP...they see the racism and can't support it.

    Betty,

    I'm so glad you bring this topic into the spotlight. Red flags might sound reasonable to some because your mind automatically assumes people with a record of mental illness, those who have already been in trouble for threatening others, etc. are the type who fall under this umbrella. However, you have to ask who is getting to define the perimeters for red flags? As you stated, Christians, Trump supporters, or anyone the Left deems a threat will be targeted.

    Hi Betty, another great article.

    I am not a fan of Red Flag laws, another slippery slope and as you stated, "power grab", that will only hurt law abiders in the long run.

    Hi Angel Guzman

    Did you know that in 2012, Obama had the "Smith Mundt" laws changed so that MSM could use propaganda on the American people?

    I honestly wouldn't care if every MSM network went off the air. I'd rather hear the truth than lies and propaganda.

    Watching any of them is literally like Nazi Germany who used the media to dehumanize a group of people while they victimized another group, so much so that up to 20 Million people were murdered and millions went along with it.

    That's why I research for myself.

    This propaganda being used on American citizen's is a fact.

    Here is just one article on it. There are literally millions of stories, videos and even government sites that record all laws passed.

    Research it for yourself.

    Much of the mainstream media is the enemy of the people.

    https://www.occupycorporatism.com/2013/07/22/how-t...

    Also, I have never in my life met one white supremacist. It's estimated that all hate groups represent only 4% of the entire US population.

    You've never met one either I bet...

    "White Nationalism," is not a real thing.

    American Nationalism is a thing, it's all American's of EVERY race who love our nation.

    Didn't Trump want to revoke NBC's broadcasting license and say the media is the enemy? Do you honestly believe that there should be no restrictions on guns? How do we turn to God? You do not want to stand with a man that has consistently attacked your community. I know White Supremacy exists but its a very program that sadly accordingbto the FBI is growing.
