So-called “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation laws violate the Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution by allowing confiscation of legal firearms from law-abiding citizens without due process; and
Already we’re seeing the dangerous repercussions of these laws. In 2018, a Maryland father was shot dead on his doorstep when law enforcement pounded on his door at five in the morning demanding he surrender his legally possessed firearms; and
By relying solely on baseless accusations and anonymous complaints as “evidence,” this law can be easily abused by violent ex-spouses, stalkers, or criminals who seek to disarm their potential victims, leaving women defenseless to protect themselves and their children; and
A “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation law in South Carolina would be a grave mistake, one which will put the lives of law-abiding gun owners and law enforcement needlessly at risk to serve a rabid anti-gun political agenda.
As your constituent, and a proud pro-Second Amendment South Carolinian, I insist you oppose ANY gun control proposals, especially “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation.
