Why a Red Flag Law is dangerous: democrat language and rhetoric

On Monday gun rights activists gathered in Richmond, Virginia to make their case against the gun-control demorats in that state.

The rally was peaceful and not one fight broke out – very much the exact opposite of Antifa gatherings. Heck, attendees at the rally even cleaned up after themselves!

But that hasn’t stopped the media and demorat gun grabbers from portraying the attendees as dangerous, racists white nationalists. See the following examples:

Rep. Don Beyer (demorat): “Annual gun lobby day protest in Richmond drew large numbers of white nationalists, militias, and racist conspiracy theorists this year. Neo-Nazis tried to use this rally to launch violent attacks. Trump’s symbolism and memories of Charlottesville are vivid in many minds today.”

HuffPo: “The Colossal Gun Rally In Richmond Was Co-Opted By Extremists

Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam: “We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. I will continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and will do everything in my power to keep our Commonwealth safe.”

Reported by Turning Point USA: “MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says today’s Peaceful Pro-2A #VirginiaRally sent an “explicit and implicit message” of “don’t you dare enact your policies, if you do we will use these guns against you.”

Media Hogg: “How many of these people do you think would support the Black Panthers right to carry? Or armed resistance to the white militias that stole the North American continent? Answer: none because they only want guns to enforce white supremacy.”

David Rothschild (a Twitter blue-checked verified economist): “The White Men (and they are all White Men, because non-White Men would not be safe in this crowd) are explicitly TERRORIZING US to demonstrate to lawmakers they will cause more TERROR if they pass gun safety measures the voters wanted and voted them into office to pass.”

Another one of David’s tweets: “The FACT that there were a handful of minorities at the rally designed to terrorize the Virginia lawmakers AND no one got shot, does invalidate the stated goals of the rally to terrorize Virginia lawmakers. Nor does it make the movement inclusive.”

As you can see, the narrative is that there were very, very dangerous people and gun owners at this rally.

Why is their hyperbole so dangerous? Because of this: “Virginia Senate advances ‘red flag’ gun law, despite rally”

From the AP article:

“The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others.

The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House.”

I’d be curious to see the red flag law text that defines how a petitioner can deem someone is “dangerous” to others. Because based upon the inflammatory language demorats use, they will always deem us gun owners as a “danger.”

Who honestly believes the blather that comes out of these shills’ pie holes or computers? All their articles and statements can be proven demonstrably false with very little effort or research. Of course, if you have a (D) next to your name, you’re not interested in facts – only power and your communist agenda. And sadly, I’m not just referring to politicians, but (D) voters as well. I really hope there’s a plan for dealing with these people long-term, because they aren’t going away after Trump wins in November. The politicians can be jailed, but these ignoramuses are just going… Read more »

I said in another comment that they weren’t able to spin this but their spin is making me dizzy. It’s not so much spinning as outright lying. To David Rothschild (where have I heard that name before?), exercising our constitutional rights to peaceably assemble is “terrorizing state legislators”. It must be terrifying to him to realize that there are large numbers of sane people out there who aren’t willing to passively roll over and be tickled. To him – Molon Labe you traitorous maggot

The only reason for me to become dangerous is if they try to confiscate guns.

Seems to me this was a perfect example of armed citizens, or even just the threat of armed citizens, being a deterrent to violence. No “deep state” false flag shooting organizer could have resisted such a crowd of unarmed true U.S. Citizens.

This Virginian has just finished reading thru the text of the ‘Red Flag Law’ passed by the Virginia Senate today (Senate Bill No. 240). It is a poorly written, dangerous piece of legislation that will allow anyone to file a report with a police officer or court magistrate accusing a lawful gun owner of quote, “posing a substantial risk of personal injury to himself or others in the near future by such person’s possession of a firearm..”. Someone states that you are a threat- and suddenly the police are at your door asking you to “voluntarily give up” your guns.… Read more »

During the six months, how many of your guns will get “lost” or have paperwork proving which ones are yours will get “lost”.

Mr. President, you and you alone renamed a hunk of inert plastic a machine gun to ban it unlawfully without either grandfathering them or paying to secure them. You and you alone have been pushing red flag laws to take guns from people without due process for 2 years maybe longer. You have failed to push and enact a national reciprocity law for concealed carry when you campaigned for it. You have failed to deregulate and legalize suppressors so that shooters can save their hearing and neighbors don’t have to put up with the noise at the ranges. Where do… Read more »

Larry,I’m 65 years old,and I’ve had the same questions on MY mind. But THIS President has done SO MUCH good for America in such a short time,it’s REALLY hard for me to believe he doesn’t have SOME sort of plan in mind to save the ONLY Amendment left to SAVE AMERICA. What I’m expecting is that,in his Second Term he’ll put his Constitutional Watchdogs to work on unraveling every unconstitutional gun law on the books,and enforcing American laws via “Constitutional Smell Test”,i.e. If it isn’t Constitutionally sound,it’s Null and Void immediately. Granted,the President will be PLENTY busy,but I,and everyone I… Read more »

Larry, I sympathize with your emotions on the 2nd Amendment. And believe me…..in my lifetime, I do not believe the 2nd Ammendment will be defeated—continually challenged, YES…but never stricken out of our Constitution without a States’ Constitutional Convention—which will NEVER happen (look up the qualifications for such ) ….(but the Democrats will keep on chewing on it for a campaign “issue” year after year, knowing it is & will be bogus forever, but always an emotional ploy, as is”racism” to puff up their vote margins without viable backing. However….you confuse me: the President is the Executive in our 3 branches… Read more »

Virginia is fast becoming a National model of “How NOT To Handle Second Amendment Issues”. WHY are the Politicians suddenly so Backwards-Minded? It’s as if they’re outright ASKING for a Civil War……

The Left is a hardened enemy. They do not listen to persuasion and are not open to being shown another side.
