Lindsey Graham, Republicans, and Red Flag laws

Ol' Lindsey has done turned on us big time by siding with the Democrats on this legislation. Getting pretty bad when the Republicans side with the Democrat Socialists to wipe their collective butts on both the Constitution and rule of law. Here's a short part of the much longer article.


s gun confiscation coming to Congress?

The 2018 midterm elections produced a split Congress with Democrats gaining control of the House and Republicans gaining seats in the Senate.

The chattering DC classes are already speculating about the Democrats' plans to subpoena Trump’s tax records and Senate Republicans’ moves to consolidate their hold of the federal judiciary. But amid the DC gossip, a new threat is being overlooked—red flag gun confiscation orders.

 The Guardian detailed House Democrats’ desire to pass gun control legislation in the upcoming Congress:

Ted Deutch, a Democratic congressman from Florida who represents Parkland, where a February school shooting left 17 dead, said this week that he expected House Democrats to focus on bills with more bipartisan support. Those measures included bump stock bans and “extreme risk protection orders”, also known as red flag laws, which give law enforcement and family members a way to petition a court to temporarily bar an unstable person from buying or owning guns.

With the cries for gun control growing stronger, the federal government may finally give in to public pressure to “do something.” Red flag laws might just be the “come together” moment establishment politicians have been looking for.


Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Lindsay Graham has been struggling mightily to find his niche in the Republican Party, since the passing of his mentor, John McCain. Recently, he has made some large strides in his quest to become the 'elder statesman' of the Republican Party. This is a 'misstep' in that quest. It is a 'John McCain type' political move, and if he wants to maintain the relevance he has gained since McCain's death, he would be wise to figure out when to shut up.

    Old habits are hard to break.
