And the hits just keep on coming from the Trump administration. Yesterday, the White House released the end results of its School Safety Commission findings. As
“The Commission endorses Extreme Risk Protection Order laws, which give authorities a temporary way to keep those who threaten society from possessing or purchasing firearms.”
Back in March, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) had this to say about so-called red flag laws . . .
“Anti-gun interest groups and politicians have used the Parkland shooting to launch what, until recently, they regarded as a distant dream — a wave of state legislation authorizing the confiscation of firearms.”
It appears that the head of the Republican Party, President Trump, is now on board with red flag laws. A number of states have now enacted the legislation that strips the law abiding of their due process rights until after their guns have been grabbed.
A rash of bills have been introduced in various state legislatures such as Oregon’s SB 719, Florida’s SB 7026, Vermont’s S 221, and Road Island’s H7688. They all have passed — to thunderous applause — and more like them are apparently on their way and the President’s apparent approval will only speed the process.
The 2016 election result had so much hope for the law-abiding gun owning public. President Trump formed a Second Amendment Coalition, ostensibly to help guide his firearms policy decision-making. TTAG’s John Boch was named as a member. He even told the American public that the eight year assault on the Second Amendment was over.
But the Second Amendment support has fallen through and the assault continues, gaining ground due to his conspicuous bipartisan cooperation with enemies of civilian gun rights like like Dianne Feinstein.
Same as it ever was.
