H.R. 5717 – Grants for States with “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Laws?
H.R. 5717: “To authorize the Attorney General to make grants to States that have in place laws that authorize the seizure of firearms from dangerous individuals, and for other purposes.”
We’ll just introduce this proposal to you all and let you know that it has been introduced in the House with a “bipartisan” group of 14 members as sponsors. The text of the bill has not yet been posted, even though the bill was introduced on May 9 and referred to the House Judiciary Committee.
Since we don’t have the actual text of H.R. 5717, we don’t really know how its language is written, but just from the stated purpose of the bill we can see a huge problem. What does “for other purposes” mean?
“Red Flag” gun confiscation laws are designed to confiscate weapons from people who are “dangerous.” The problem with them is that sometimes the enforcement of them can be subjective. Some states have safeguards for the gun owner, but most do not.
The left’s real plans involve total gun confiscation. As we have reported numerous times, their knowledge of guns is severely lacking. An AR-15 is not an “assault weapon.” But that has not stopped them from pursuing an agenda that openly violates the 2nd Amendment – from demanding that it be repealed to finding ways to skirt it by the use of legislation.
Subjectively, gun grabbers want all your guns, and they don’t really care about whether you are “dangerous” or not. All gun owners are “dangerous” in their view.
Here’s an example from the anti-gun students from Parkland, who apparently don’t attend school much anymore.
“It’s just cheaper to take away the guns that aren’t imperative to living in America. You don’t need an AR-15 to protect yourself in bed from a robber at night…Go join the Army if you want to have fun shooting off a weapon, and serve your f**king country. Excuse my language.” Emma Gonzalez
