  • Leftists And Red Flag Laws...

    Another good reason why red flag laws are questionable...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) suggested Friday that controversial "red flag" laws should be used against conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.


    In a tweet, Swalwell said Shapiro is "reason 1,578 America needs red flag laws."

    "Please tell me this lunatic does not own a gun," Swalwell said.

    The Democratic lawmaker was responding to comments from Shapiro's Friday podcast. A Media Matters reporter highlighted the comments, stripping them of their context, to make it appear that Shapiro was advocating violence — and it worked.

    Given his low and static polling, it’s hard to tell what, exactly, Beto O’Rourke hopes to accomplish by staying in the presidential race. But while his actual goal seems a bit elusive, he is increasingly playing a very specific role: the human straw man, the embodiment of every seemingly irrational conservative fear about what the left really wants.

    Right enough, Ben is a cool, good looking, fast talking, dude, but I think he is getting carried away. Beto is not a threat.

      'seeming irrational' = he actually shows that many conservatives fears are true. At least the fake Hispanic is truthful about what his side ultimately wants.

        This is so easy to see coming. I'll never forgive Trump if he supports this.

          Agreed, because Beto is such a BOZO.

              Here's a pretty good update on that.

                I'm talking on the Federal level. We have had it in my state for a while, haven't seen any real problems so far. But the potential for abuse is great.

                  I'm hoping they leave this to the states. As far as I know, the Colorado law seems to be the most likely model for any federal legislation.

                    Yes, he looks like a dud. How about we team up to promote a ‘murder tax’ whereby, gun manufacturers cough up $100M for every victim of one of their guns. Would that keep everyone happy?

                        If you can prove that a gun manufacturer murdered anybody, let's talk.

                          But only in cases where a car actually murdered somebody.

                            Trump suggested red flagging Chris Cuomo a month or two ago as well, and this was discussed on here, so it's weird that you didn't bring this talking point up then. But I don't think this is a strong argument against red flag laws because the way they are designed, they can't be ordered by any given politician against opponents.

That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill
