Graham Wants to Re-present Red-flag Bill with Dem Senator Blumenthal

The massacre in Uvalde, TX, has spurned a whole new wave of gun control legislation on both sides of the aisle.

Senator Graham (R-S.C.) hopes that the desire to pass more gun control legislation will help get a bill he co-sponsored with Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) in 2019 passed.

The bill is a red-flag bill that would enable guns to be removed from a household or person when an individual is deemed to be a threat to themselves or someone else.

Momentum

Honestly, I have never seen so many Republicans eager to pass legislation, so I would expect Democrats to take advantage of the cooperative mood in DC right now.

This particular law had both support and resistance among conservatives.

The question here is who is it that gets to determine when someone is a “threat.”

A source close to the two senators stated, “Lindsey and Richard get along and are talking to outside groups about what they are doing.

“They were on the phone all weekend and bringing a few people in.”

Based on the concerns brought about in 2019, I would expect the bill’s language to be changed so that it suits both sides.

I would also suspect that it would pass fairly easily, as a handful of Republicans are already backing other gun-control legislation in the Senate.

Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) are also working on legislation that would address the sale of the so-called “assault weapons.”

As I have stated before, my main concern here is that once this door is opened, it gets opened all the way and the Second Amendment is gone before we know it.

This will make for some very interesting times leading up to the 2022 election.

What do you guys think? Is there any gun control legislation you would support, and what is it?

  1. Exactly who decides and under what circumstances do they decide ? I would rather see a raised age limit to buy guns than some idiot anti- gun liberal deciding red flag. Put the death penalty back in all 50 states and use it, revamp the prison system, actually make it punishment again, no trustees, no weight lifting, no basketball, no easy time, prisoners in a 6 ft by 8 ft cell , hard punishment brings about correction alot better than the day care facilities they run today.

    1. Exactly right. Who decides the issue. Is the Senator saying that our Constitutional Rights (2nd Amendment) could be removed as a result of a spiteful “former” friend/lover/girl friend, without benefit of trial or evidence? If so, then it is time for Senator Graham to go.

    2. I agree with you.We do not need new gun legislation,we need to put security in our schools just like the politicians in DC have.They have security guards that carry every kind of weapons in the book to protect “the elite”in DC.Our children deserve no less.They should leave law abiding citizens alone .Go after criminals and stop coddling them.

  2. If you look at most of the gun slingers in the past you will find that most are left leaning, Therefore we should prohibit all left voting citizens from buying and owning any guns period.

  3. I am 82 years old, and oppose Red Flag Laws, and any other infringement on my Constitutionally guaranteed rights. The Florida Red Flag Law should have been repealed long-ago.

    I find it amazing that those we elect to represent us choose to violate their oath(s) of office.

    And any weakening of the Second Amendment is a violation of their oath(s) of office. This should be grounds for immediate dismissal regardless of the political office.

  4. Heck no he can not trust the dumbacrats who has been in the government for almost all of there lives we don’t want to get our guns taken away from us and we the people will fight for our freedom and our senators should be listening to us now because they can be replaced

  5. Heck no we don’t want our guns taken away from us and we the people have been very tired of the bull that the dumbacrats are trying to pull and our senate should be listening to their people now because they can be replaced with a positive impact on our government

  6. I don’t think we need more gun laws, there are plenary on the books now. Here’s an example, look at Illinois / Chicago they probably have the toughest gun laws in the nation. Has that stopped crime, NO it has not. Chicago is a shooting gallery weekend after weekend the bodies keep piling up. You have a Mayor and DA that just don’t care, the DA lets most criminals get out pretty much Scott free, so how does that deter crime, the simple answer it don’t. Until we have Mayors and District Attorney’s working with law enforcement to keep the criminals locked up, the criminals will have free reign. There has been no mention or offer to beef up school security only take guns away from law abiding citizens. The second amendment was put in place to keep government in check, to protect us from Tierney also to protect the first amendment because without the second you won’t have the first. It’s time to enforce our existing laws and put the criminals behind bars. Criminals have too understand that you’ll pay a high price for committing crimes.

    1. I AGREE…. SOME OF THESE IDIITS OPENKY STATE THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO GET THE HIGH “SCORE”… IT IS TIME TO GO AFTER THESE VIDEO “GAMES” THAT INDOCTRINATE THESE IDIOTS BY HAVING THEM, REPEATEDLY KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS THEY CAN IN ORDER TO WIN THE GAME…
      WE ALREASMDY KNOW THAT THIS CONSTANT BARRAGE OF VIOLENCE IS HARMFULL AND DANGEROUS…
      TIME TO MAKE THESE GAMES ILLEGAL AND TAKE AN ACTUAL ACTION THAT WILL ACTUALLY WORK

  7. I am almost 81 years old and have been shooting weapons for 75 years. I have yet to shoot another person. I have owned and own several weapons for my personal enjoyment. I have had CCW permit for many years and I do carry my weapon and never had to draw it but that does not mean that I may not have at sometime, so what we need instead of gun control we need criminal control. Remember when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns because crooks do not pay attention to laws.

  8. This Is Just Totally Insane Gun Control Is Not Going To Fix The Problem Get Security In Our Schools And That Will Solve The Problem

  9. I think they aught to out law cars. They kill far more people than guns. Since they want to do away with gas run cars and implement E-cars that will eliminate about 80% of the public. Leaving only the well off purchasing them. Eliminating the cars can really help the people out of their jobs and the people running this country will be very happy. The cars have got to go bye bye.
