Is the old Lindsay back? According to US Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC), so-called “red flag” laws are an area where
Republicans may just reach across the aisle…
As you review the details below, please keep a few things in mind:
- “Red Flag Law” and “Extreme Risk Protection
Order” are simply euphemisms for the unlawful suspension of a person’s constitutional rights, absent any due process, based
solely on hearsay from an accuser who has neither witnessed a crime, nor been victimized by one.
- The US House is currently held by Nancy Pelosi’s extremely anti-gun party. This means the Senate may be the
only reliable road block to extremist gun control bills. Yet, we now see influential Republican senators suggesting they just might send a
“red flag” bill to Speaker Pelosi for her party’s rubber stamp.
- If it can pass the Senate, it’ll breeze through the House, and then it’s on to the
President, who unfortunately, seems
open to unconstitutional ‘red flag’ laws, and who gets along great with Lindsay Graham.
This is Serious
speaking on CNN as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee,
Senator Graham confirmed that the powerful
committee will hold a hearing on gun control. The hearing is expected to
cover “extreme risk protection” orders (“red flag”
laws). Gun control is a topic usually shunned by members of the
Republican held senate, and rightfully so. This is why their sudden
interest in a gun
control hearing is an ominous sign.

story that quotes Senator Graham (emphasis ours):
“I think there’s a lot of common ground
[with Democrats] on enrolling people in
the background system who
danger to themselves or others.”
It’s probably safe to assume that you
don’t want to be “enrolled” in anything concocted by Lindsay Graham and approved by Nancy
Pelosi, especially when it comes to infringements on your Constitutionally guaranteed rights.
The CNN Story goes on:
Graham, a supporter and strong ally of President Trump also says he has spoken with the President about it.

It is critical that
each of us contact the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Particularly North Carolina’s own, Senator Thom Tillis. Below,
see how you can reach each member, starting with Senator Tillis, and let them know that you expect them to stand for due process, for
gun rights, and against “red flag” laws.
