NM governor signs “red flag” gun confiscation law; issues ominous threat Nine Line News Team February 27, 2020 2nd Amendment, Articles, In The Press, Nine Line News 5 To learn more about our mission, visit: www.ninelineapparel.com Well folks, it’s starting. As much as we like to believe people when they say “we’re not coming for your guns,” it’s hard not to feel that they are. Of course, not OVERTLY, but still… Just this week, the governor of New Mexico, Michelle Lujan Grisham, signed a law allowing the state’s courts to temporarily seize firearms from those people it deems a danger to themselves or others. Called the “Extreme Risk Firearm Protection Order Act, it adds New Mexico to a growing list of 17 other states in the union which allow law enforcement to take away guns from people they consider dangerous. So, we can all agree that people who are dangerous shouldn’t be owning firearms. The problem is, we can’t always agree who is dangerous. So that’s one thing. The other thing is, the governor issued a fairly clear and firm warning to her state’s law enforcement population: enforce this or else. The “or else” turns out to be resign your post. In other words, get with this program or get out. “They cannot not enforce,” she said. “And if they really intend to do that, they should resign as a law enforcement officer and leader in that community.” Not surprisingly, laws of this type have faced opposition from both gun rights activists and law enforcement officials (often one and the same). CNN reports (obviously, duh) that both groups say these laws violate Second Amendment rights and don’t allow due process. Over the weekend, Tony Mace, the head of the New Mexico Sheriffs’ Association, wrote that these so-called red flag laws don’t give gun owners an opportunity to defend themselves against an initial confiscation order. “Citizens have a right to bear arms and we cannot circumvent that right when they have not even committed a crime or even been accused of committing one,” Mace wrote. “‘Shall not be infringed’ is a very clear and concise component of an Amendment that our forefathers felt was important enough to be recognized immediately following freedom of speech and religion.” Yup. Yup. What happens when “authorities” decide people with tattoos could potentially be dangerous. Or those with a funny last name. Or a different color skin. Who decides what is dangerous and what isn’t? We’ve already been told law enforcement is doing too much “profiling.” Exactly why do we want to give more power to government to force us to disarm? You know the story about the frog in the pot of water, right? Throw a frog into a pot of boiling water and it will jump out. But put Kermit into a pot of cool water and slowly turn up the temperature, and he’ll be dead before he notices. Ribbit.

Surely THAT is more cost effective when you can fine them pretty well (most politicians are wealthy enough to pay there fines as well ) and force them OUT of office there after . start using your head and proper law to solve big issues . civics class in the 60’s .. discussion on duty of representatives and bills ; 1 they read the bill . 2 understand the bill, 3 convinced it does not violate the constitution . 4 then it is possible to VOTE for the bill and uphold there oath of office . THE PROBLEM is they are not DOING that first. The public has failed there duty to hold them to that. We are a constitutional republic under laws (this means 2 wolves and a sheep do not get to decide what is for lunch ) Attempts to rob a bank are a violation , there fore attempts to steal any enumerated rights are no different when protecting constitutional rights including 1. electoral rights of balance , 2.pertaining to all bills to include due process of law , 3. ___________fill in _____ the action needed now is to arrest the bill writers , them who vote for it , co sign the bill , and all who sign off on them , via executive order or any cop of any dept . arrest the office oath breakers (to give them standing before the ct.) and FORCE the supreme court to enforce the charges or screw up and give proper cause for revolt to remove said traders. this is NOT a a revolt with cops or the public in conflict but with off base representatives and the rest of us USA citizens . so the time has come to arrest gun grabbers for failure to uphold oath of office to defend the constitution. arrest them , charge them , strip there retirements from office , heavily fine them , and BAN from ever holding any office again. the above is reasonably justified for even proposing the bills that have bin written up all ready that they wish to pass. the reason so many county’s have adopted gun sanctuary status is evident the bills ARE clearly unconstitutional. and an attack on self defense freedom. Arresting them (anti constitutional proposers , voters , co signers , and who signs off on said laws ) is the safest way to deal with this threat right NOW. give them standing to have supreme court look into this and decide whether they get it wrong before it is necessary to break out cold tar and feathers to take back the country. any law that requires added action by a gun owning citizen or fee to stay complaint when not breaking a law is NOT acceptable. nor is a law that steals rights from future citizens.
