Why NRA Is Raising A Red Flag Over "Red Flag" Laws

In Colorado, nearly half of the state’s sheriff’s departments are in an uproar against a new “red flag” law that would require law enforcement officers to confiscate the firearms of any Coloradan who has been deemed unsuitable to retain his Second Amendment rights, and that would do so in a way that violates the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. One sheriff, in rural Weld County, is so concerned by the idea that he has vowed to go to prison rather than administer it. These warnings should serve as a clear indication that something has gone wrong with the way in which legislators have come to think about individual rights. In the Centennial State, the canaries are sending warnings up the shaft. 

Contrary to the dark insinuations that are a mainstay of our modern politics, everybody in America hopes to see less violence and fewer criminal acts. Where there exists genuine disagreement, it is over how we might achieve that end, not whether it is worthwhile per se. As a result, debates around what we might do to increase public safety are conducted not between the caring and the indifferent, but between those who hope to reduce violence and do not care what barriers they knock down while getting there, and those who hope to reduce violence but will not countenance impinging upon core constitutional rights in the process.

The number of constitutional violations that the existing “red flag” laws rack up is nothing short of astonishing.

The sheriffs who are openly discussing going to jail belong to the latter group—which, naturally, is not a comfortable place for them to be.

Let me add, In the past the NRA has been historically in agreement with red flag gun confiscation, very sad indeed!
