The Second Amendment Foundation is warning Americans about a new handbook that has recently been published by three groups pushing red flag laws
The playbook which was created by the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, the Giffords Gun Control Group, and the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence was created to promote their campaign of, “Red Flag Laws.”
Red Flag Laws are a civil order to remove guns from individuals who are identified as a danger to themselves or others. Anyone can petition for the order before a court including family members and loved ones. Red Flag Laws are not always effective and some say they are a violation of an individuals rights.
Alan M. Gottlieb, founder and Vice President, of the Second Amendment Foundation warns about the handbook focusing primarily on how to take guns from people, but doesn’t provide insight on people’s rights and self-defense
“We’re all for preventing violent crimes and tragedies such as suicide, but there are genuine civil rights and due process concerns related to the use of such orders to disarm someone, following a court hearing they may not even be aware of, before they have a chance to defend against any allegations. This guide asserts guns are ‘temporarily’ removed, but that is not really be the case in some instances.
