From a poster on Gab, a worst-case “typical scenario” under an implemented Red Flag law:
This IS the way Red Flag Laws will happen.
It’s a Sunday night and your family has all gone to bed. It’s bedtime and work and school are going to come early in the morning. You crawl in bed and drift off to sleep. A few hours pass…
0200 Monday morning and your wife taps your leg and says, “baby I heard something outside”. You grab that trusty ‘ol 870 and head into the living room. Your wife grabs her 9mm and follows you. Then splinters fly across the room and the front door flies open. “Oh shit!” As you shoulder your weapon and send a load of 00 Buck across your living room and see the perpetrator fall in a heap. You see a second man coming in the door and you fire again. You hear the pop of your wife’s 9mm as she joins the fight. Just then you are consumed by a wall of bullets as you see muzzle flashes from just outside the door and you realize something isn’t right. You turn to yell at your wife to “get down” just in time to see her take a load of buckshot to the face. You feel the burning as 5.56 rounds riddle your body. The last thing you see before you bleed out is a SWAT guy holding your teenage daughter on the floor with a knee in her back.
Why did this happen? Well two days ago, you and your wife welcomed the new neighbors to the community. Later that afternoon, you got a friend request on Facebook from your new neighbor. The next day your neighbor scrolled through your Facebook profile. He saw that “Trump 2020” post and got infuriated because he’s a liberal and he hates your kind. The next thing he sees are the hunting pictures you took last fall. Next he sees your post from the last range day and sees those scary black assault weapons! He has to do something about the racist, right wing extremist, domestic terrorist living next door. He picks up the phone, calls the local Sheriffs Office and reports you as a threat under the new Red Flag law. The Sheriffs Office follows their SOP’s and conducts a no knock warrant because you have now been denied due process and you are considered guilty until proven innocent.
Now you, your lovely wife and two deputies have been killed for nothing. The local news paper will report that you were killed after firing-on, and killing, two deputies and that “over a thousand rounds of ammo and 22 guns were confiscated from your residence”.
Oh… those two deputies were just following orders. They left behind families as well and had served their community for over a decade.
This is the reality of Red Flag gun laws. Innocent people will lose their lives, including police serving these unconstitutional no-knock warrants. Red Flag laws will be used for petty and vengeful reasons without merit by gun hating liberals who believe if you own guns, that it somehow automatically makes you a threat to society and therefore you are a right wing extremist domestic terrorist who MUST be stopped and neutralized at all costs.
In a different scenario, law enforcement will seek to minimize the drama and just arrest you when you’re, say, driving home from work. Unlike how they did it at Waco and later at Ruby Ridge. Two things:
One, it’s all about who owns the government — your country’s class of native, responsible common men, or everyone else. Two, thirty years ago our civilization dodged the bullet on the nightmare-scenario of its time, nuclear annihilation. The nightmare of our time is a new story. Hold on to your hats:
