Red Flag Laws are Unconstitutional and Unwise

My Take on Why Red Flag Laws are Unconstitutional and Unwise:

After the tragedies of last weekend, our politicians decided that we need to “do something.” That something, of course, is implement unconstitutional gun control laws. Namely, politicians such as Dan Crenshaw and pretty much all of the Democrats want to implement red flag laws. Those red flag laws are unconstitutional and unwise.

Why Red Flag Laws are Unconstitutional:

Why are red flag laws unconstitutional and unwise? Because they strip law-abiding citizens of their right to keep and bear arms. Remember, that is a right that the Founders said “shall not be infringed.” They didn’t say that right could be infringed if an otherwise law-abiding citizen “might” pose a danger. If a person is dangerous or has broken the law, then they should be arrested. If they aren’t or haven’t, then they should be left alone. Constitutionally, there is no in between.

Yes, there are obviously cases where someone poses a threat to themselves and others and shouldn’t have access to weapons. But, if that is the case, then their weapons shouldn’t just be taken from them by the ATF. That’s an unconstitutional recipe for disaster that would almost certainly lead to widespread outrage and violence (which are two reasons why red flag laws are unwise).

Additionally, red flag laws give too much power to the accuser. In America you are innocent until proven guilty. The Democrats’ abdication of that principle during and after the Russia investigation is why the Mueller report and its aftermath are both so dangerous to America. With the passage of red flag laws, America would again be turning its back on the principle of being innocent until proven guilty. So that’s yet another reason why red flag laws, like all gun control laws, are unconstitutional. Gen Z Conservative read more
