Bill: S. 292 — “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation.
NAGR's Position: Opposed.
Sponsor(s): Sen. Marco Rubio [R-FL], Sen. Rick Scott [R-FL]
Status: Introduced 2/8/2021
Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott have just betrayed gun owners by teaming up with radical anti-gun Democrats to push a “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation bill, S. 292.
Sometimes branded as “Extreme Risk Protection Orders,” these laws rely on ex-parte (one sided) orders that empower law enforcement officers, including SWAT teams, to immediately seize firearms from lawful gun owners without notification or right to an attorney.
In other words: gun confiscation without due process!
If passed, this bill would use YOUR tax dollars to fund grants to bribe states into passing “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation.
Let your elected officials know you OPPOSE this radical gun control scheme by signing your NO on S. 292 — “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation petition right away!
Whereas: “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation bills call for legally owned firearms to be forcibly confiscated from law-abiding Americans without due process; and
Whereas: Confiscation is often based on unsubstantiated accusations from disgruntled family members, neighbors, co-workers, and/or current or ex-romantic partners, or roommates; and
Whereas: A national “Red Flag” Law or grant program will violate law-abiding gun owners due process and Second Amendment rights;
Therefore: As your constituent, I urge you to reject this unconstitutional and dangerous bill, S. 292.
