Red-Flag Law Gun Confiscations In Maryland

BY Herschel Smith
7 months ago

The Washington Post:

Maryland courts have seized guns from 148 people in the three months since the state enacted a law designed to take weapons from people who are danger to themselves or others.

Four of the gun owners posed “significant threats” to schools, an official told state lawmakers Tuesday.

Montgomery County Sheriff Darren M. Popkin (D), who has helped train police officers across the state about the “red-flag” law, said he could not provide details about the gun seizures — including those that could have led to school shootings — because of a confidentiality rule.

But, Popkin told the House Judiciary Committee, “these orders . . . are saving lives.”

As I’ve said before, the communist project is nearly complete.

Say, I was wondering, if the department of pre-crime is any good, why haven’t we seen a precipitous reduction in the number of spree crimes?  Surely, half of their predictions for the future should be accurate, right?  We require that of weather forecasters, don’t we?

Prophets, all of them.  Surely.  It also comes to mind that God required false prophets be killed in the O.T. (Deuteronomy 13:13).  I wonder how many of these forecasters would be willing to put their life on the line for their fortune telling and witch-doctoring?

    A classic example of MSM lying through omission, “But, Popkin told the House Judiciary Committee, ‘these orders . . . are saving lives.'” No mention of the gun owner Gary J. Willis murdered in one of these cases as you reported on 11/5 last year, which we subsequently learned was based on a bogus “family being family” claim by a niece. Of course the Bezos Blog doesn’t consider gun owners to be human so in their view that doesn’t matter, but to us?

    With Trump and leading Senate Republicans pushing nationwide implementation of these laws, with the Red states of Indiana per Everytown and Florida having implemented them? Note the latter’s example show everyone is endangered by this state sponsored SWATing, in the first report on 467 cases from mid-March to July 24th, many of the targets owned no guns. Middlebury, Vermont also provides an example where a shit talking teen got an innocent 3rd party adult’s guns seized.

    You can eliminate half of all gun crime and violence if you disarm young black men.

    bob sykes: Just how could you go about doing that? It’s not like 99% of those committing crimes legally own the guns they use. And they’d still have access to blunt objects, knives, even if just kitchen or homemade ones, etc., or just superior upper body strength compared to women and the elderly.

    It’s why they need universal background checks…they need the universal REGISTRY so they can expand the red flag laws to include as dangerous, I don’t know….anyone who owns a gun?!

    So these Statists have a list of what constitutes a Red Flag, kind of like the “No Fly” list. I have not seen what that published list is for any of the states that have passed these laws but we will see the criteria on those lists expand until it implodes to one simple reason. Kind of like a star going into a nova. Ultimately the list will become only “Does the individual have possession of a gun, any gun?”. That is the ultimate red flag list. That is their goal.

    You don’t hear many folks praise the ‘young black men’ but I give them credit. The Negro with a gun, headlines have disappeared but they still have guns. They are ahead of their time. While we still have some expectation of a functioning civil society they don’t. While we Red Flag our own family members they settle disputes in a more, how to say it, as the anthropological tribal warriors that they are. Darnell and Tyrone don’t fill out 4473’s, never have. Who’s smarter, them or the NRA Fudds? My point is that the long march is now over save for the military but I have first hand reports that down to the unit level the SJW program is being fully rolled out. It won’t be long now.

    While all of the stats are correct, if we eliminate for race, inner city zip codes, whatever measure, the US crime rates involving a gun drops in-line and even below many homogeneous white cultures around the world. Crimes with guns by whites in America is astoundingly low but none of that matters. The American Communists don’t give a rip about some gotcha statistics. They want you dead.

    The major take away here is that the “young black men” are already living in the manner that’s coming to us all. Harden Up can no longer be a mental exercise or family safety plan on paper only, or a trip to the gym. It’s time to start living now without the resources that make up a well ordered and high trust society. The libertarian kooks (affectionately) of old were right about withdrawing consent and avoiding the State but it’s no longer a philosophical dispute about the manner in which one is governed, it’s now about survival. The American Communists, like all others, when they make their final move, they make astonishingly quick, maybe overnight.

    Believe me the blacks aren’t going to Red Flag their warrior grade men because they believe, where it counts, this innate sense that is a gift from Holy God, that these men are vital. While the whites Red Flag SWAT their crazy uncle and their veteran brothers, they will realize much too late that the State does not love them and therefor the very men that they have alienated are the ones needed to SAVE THEIR LIVES.

    It wont’ be about who was right or wrong and it’s not about that now, it will be survival and the Regular Americans will come face to face with their false god’s of enlightened reason and survival of the fittest, for the LORD has already told every man woman, and child, in their heart that Family, Tribe, Nation comes first, else why would satan and his workers of inequity be full tilt to wreck every vestige of the natural man. Survival of Fittest is no God at all, it is single aspect of the created being for the Holy Creator himself has told us intellectually, at conception on our heart, innately of our being, and in His holy word that Survival of the Fittest is the nature of Self Defense in the immediate and the Regular Americans who deny God will face the realization of His created order in an instant when they are caught comply sideways having made Survival of the Fittest a god instead of a known quantity, in the immediate, of a fallen world. That moment will hit them as a full on adrenaline rush of fight or flight from they will know, their intellect and cleverness ability of discernment were wasted. God does not suffer fools well. There is a Holy reckoning, a reconciliation for every man. Reconciliation is a scalable concept as we are made in His image. Reconciliation doesn’t always mean that it’s favorable. Remember this when the hard men you have shunned and belittled determine that it’s best to just kill you then risk having you pointing them out to the American Communists. Shocking? Men, you may have kill people that you know, even care about. Make your covenant with the LORD now, these things happen fast and take on a life of their own, later will be too late.

    The argument RE universal background checks is about much more than guns. It is about the concept of ownership of private property and the freedom to determine its disposition – whether in barter or private commerce between 2 free men, or gifting. The nail in the coffin of property ownership is the size of a railroad spike.

    Well said Fred. There is a big diff tween reading with understanding vs. pretending to know because long time attendance of a sold out pc church restraining us from Eccles.3 – “a time to kill”.
    His written word is good enough, all of it. If it isn’t for you, then nothing is good enough.
    The only reason Cain killed Abel himself was that there wasn’t any useful idiots around to do it for him.

    Herschel, Deut 19:19-21 should apply to all false witnesses as well. Anyone who falsely claims someone might be a murderer should be treated as a murderer themselves.
    Where are the rest of Gary Willis accusers?
