Red Flag Gun Laws: Yet Another Government Weapon for Compliance and Control [SHORT]

Long version here

 

 

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”—George Santayana

We never learn.

In the right (or wrong) hands, benevolent plans can easily be put to malevolent purposes.

Even the most well-intentioned government law or program can be—and has been—perverted, corrupted and used to advance illegitimate purposes once profit and power are added to the equation.

The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

Mark my words: red flag gun laws, which allow the police to remove guns from people suspected of being threats, will only add to the government’s power.

These laws, growing in popularity as a legislative means by which to seize guns from individuals viewed as a danger to themselves or others, are yet another Trojan Horse, a stealth maneuver by the police state to gain greater power over an unsuspecting and largely gullible populace.

Thirteen states now have red flag laws on their books. That number is growing.

As The Washington Post reports, these laws “allow a family member, roommate, beau, law enforcement officer or any type of medical professional to file a petition [with a court] asking that a person’s home be temporarily cleared of firearms. It doesn’t require a mental-health diagnosis or an arrest.”…..Read More

Texas Judge Sanctions CPS $127K for Wrongfully Taking Couple’s Children and Lying to the Court


MFP Commentary:

When you can “take” children with no due process,  using lies as the basis for “taking” the children,  what is the difference between this, and kidnapping?   Where the hell are the criminal charges against the CPS workers?   I guess wearing a government uniform of any color exempts one from being prosecuted for any crime.  This is a glaring example of “Moral Relativism”  a plank in the beliefs of the church of Satan., and an evil  principle that is central to the structure of the US government and it’s agencies.    One last thought:  Where the hell are the “pro-life” “useful idiots”  (1) ?

Commentary by Terri LaPoint

There are elements that are common almost to the point of being universal in cases involving children taken from their families by Child Protective Services, including false allegations, lying by social workers, falsified medical records, failure of social workers to follow their own policies, laws broken by CPS, and the failure to consider evidence that refutes CPS allegations.

However, there is one thing that remains rare in CPS cases – that is, for anyone within the system to be held accountable. Repercussions for social workers, the CPS agency, or doctors involved in taking children from innocent parents are very rare….Read More

Modern Elections Are Depressing



MFP Commentary:

Every person in this country, ESPECIALLY Christians, need to read and think about this article.  Chuck is saying what I have been saying for years, but he does it in such a nicer way than I cam capable of doing…..

This column was written before the results of Tuesday’s elections were known. I’m sure I will have plenty of opportunities to comment on election results and ramifications in the weeks and months to come. For now, I want to talk about our elections in general. In short, they are downright depressing.

In the first place, on average, less than half of eligible voters bother to vote. This means that about one-fourth (or less) of the voting-age citizens of this country are electing our various representatives. That, by itself, is a depressing thought.

Most people glibly dismiss the fact that about half of our fellow Americans are staying home from the polls by simply chalking it up to “apathy.” Of course, many people who don’t vote can be described as apathetic. But the real issue is what made them apathetic.
