“Some newspaper articles imply that Gun Confiscation Orders (fraudulently sugar-coated as ‘red flag laws’) somehow represent a ‘middle ground’ alternative to gun control.
“This is comparable to curing a ‘painful hangnail’ by shooting yourself through the head.

“To the contrary, it is the ‘final destination’ of those who want to give the police the ability to obliterate your constitutional rights — by a simple telephone call.
“Here’s how Gun Confiscation ‘red-flag laws’ work: In general, the police or an ‘angry ex’ can make a telephone call to a judge. And, based on that telephone call, the judge can issue an order stripping you of your Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights.
"With no actual hearing and no due process whatsoever."
