While you were distracted with the Arizona Audit, Congress (including 135 Republicans) the House of Representatives just passed a new Red Flag Gun Confiscation law.
How did they do it?
With the help of 135 Republicans joining with the Democrats to pass something so clearly unconstitutional.
Take a look:
BREAKING: Military courts could order ‘red flag’ gun confiscation under defense billhttps://t.co/fWs6WRd454

Red Flag laws violate the Second Amendment and deny citizens Due Process – they should have no place in the FY 2022 NDAA.

It looks like they’re trying to do the confiscations through the military.
American Military News explained more details:
A provision in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act would allow military courts to issue protective orders that include “Red Flag” gun confiscation, according to the more than 1,300-page bill.
In the legislation, those beholden to the United States Code of Military Justice could be issued a “military court protective order” by a military judge or magistrate, which would make “possessing, receiving, or otherwise accessing a firearm” illegal.
“A military court protective order issued on an ex parte basis shall restrain a person from possessing, receiving, or otherwise accessing a firearm; and a military court protective order issued after the person to be subject to the order has received notice and opportunity to be heard on the order, shall restrain such person from possessing, receiving, or otherwise accessing a firearm in accordance with section 922 of title 18,” SEC. 529 of H.R. 4350 states.
Additionally, military court protective orders issued on an emergency basis are exempted from providing the recipient with the standard “right to due process.” Instead, “notice and opportunity to be heard” must only be provided after an order was already issued.
“EMERGENCY ORDERS.—A protective order on an emergency basis may be issued on an ex parte basis under such rules and limitations as the President shall prescribe,” the section continues. “In the case of ex parte orders, notice and opportunity to be heard and to present evidence must be provided within a reasonable time not to exceed 30 calendar days after the date on which the order is issued, sufficient to protect the respondent’s due process rights.”
Gun Owners of America (GOA), a pro-Second Amendment gun rights advocacy group, warned the military gun confiscation orders could provide lawmakers with a precedent to extend the rule to the general population.
“Like the proverbial camel’s nose in the tent, allowing this provision to remain in a bill pertaining to the military will eventually work its way into legislation applying to the rest of the population,” GOA wrote. “That’s why we need to raise our voices in unison against these gun confiscation orders.”
So which Republicans voted for it?
Unfortunately many names I did NOT expect to see on here:
Dan Crenshaw, Madison Cawthorn, Matt Gaetz and 132 other House Republicans voted with the Democrats to pass federal red flag gun laws. Why even bother having a Republican Party when they just vote with the Democrats anyway?

Here is the full list:
Madison Cawthorn appeared to panic when word got out he was one of the traitors….
He recorded this video in his car to do damage control:
Cawthorn hits the panic button tonight, firing off a video from his car. He has been getting called a traitor all day after voting for the “red flag” gun bill. “I have not betrayed anybody in the 2nd Amendment community. I will always have your back. I’m armed every single day.” pic.twitter.com/91yUw5GFGW

Hey Cawthorn, here’s a brilliant idea from little old NOAH……
What do I know, but perhaps instead of relying on the Senate to do your job, maybe you and your 134 RINO buddies should have just fucking voted NO and sent it back to be deleted before it would get your vote.
I mean, I’m no “Congressman” or anything, but that’s what I’d do.
You piece of shit RINOS.
Even the ones we thought were good are selling us out.
Are people aware of what happens when someone triggers a red flag law?
They send armed police to your house. Armed police who have been told you are armed with a firearm and present a risk to yourself and others. And they attempt to retrieve your guns.
It doesn't go well.
