Sign the Petition: "NO RED FLAG GUN CONFISCATION!"

Dear Fellow Patriot,

With the backing of NYC Billionaire Michael Bloomberg and his gun grabbing puppets in Augusta, the threat of so-called "Red Flag" Gun Confiscation Order legislation is growing by the day.

If passed, government goons could burst into your home and seize your guns with ZERO due process.

You don't get to defend yourself in court or even see what you're accused of. All that has to happen is someone complains about you!

It is already happening in California, Maryland (where a terrified gun owner was shot dead at home just after 5 am) and a few other extreme anti-gun states. But now politicians right here in our state are in a rush to make it a MAINE law.

That's why I'm counting on you to please sign your "No Red Flag Gun Confiscation" Petition right away!

We will deliver your petition to your lawmakers at our expense before any "Red Flag" bills are voted on in Augusta.

Let's Free Maine!

Petition to my Representatives and Senators:
"No Red Flag Gun Confiscation!"

WHEREAS, Speaker Sara Gideon (D - Freeport) and Senator Rebecca Millett (D - Cape Elizabeth) have sponsored LD 1312 to strip Maine people of their guns with ZERO due process through Gun Confiscation Orders; and

WHEREAS, the proposal violates the Declaration of Rights of the Maine State Constitution, which states that "No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law..." (Article I, Section 6-A), and "Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned" (Article I, Section 16); and

WHEREAS, Gun Confiscation Orders would have a chilling effect on free speech by frightening gun owners into not speaking out about their beliefs for fear of having their guns seized by the state;

WHEREAS, a Gun Confiscation Order in the state of Maryland has already resulted in the death of an innocent gun owner, 61-year-old Gary Willis;

THEREFORE, on behalf of Second Amendment supporters in Maine, I urge you to vote "NO!" on any gun control scheme that reaches the floor of the Maine Legislature, including so-called "Red Flag" Gun Confiscation Legislation.

    Eliminating constitutional rights in the name of safety has always been a tricky business. Err towards due process and the maintenance of these rights. Defeat LD 1312. Rebecca Millett has never been one to preserve individual rights over the government. A basic understanding on rights would illuminate the folly of this bill.

    Fear and ignorance about guns is threatening our very way of life. The thought that outside parties with no background in mental health can make claims that are then acted upon by police with force without a shred of due process is as Orwellian as it gets. What about an angry spouse or vengeful neighbor using this law to get back at someone? Is there any vetting of information at all? There doesn’t appear to be. Do the people responsible for this legislation have any statistical data to support their views? Do they know anything about guns? Constitutional law? I believe this is some of our politicians getting caught up in and perpetrating fear mongering. When nothing should scare you more than the idea of police being given the authority to go to a law abiding citizens house unannounced with no warrant no crime no legal reason other than the word of a family member and use force to seize property.

    This bill allows anyone with a grudge, valid or not, to take revenge on a person by sending the police to take a persons weapons before they even have a chance to prove themselves innocent of any charge; a spurned lover, one angry at a divorce settlement a mentally unbalanced person themselves making the accusation against a totally innocent person. A blatant attack on our Second Amendment rights by the Anti Second Amendment crowd. Crouching this bill in the interest of protecting lives is preposterous. No responsible gun owner wants to see anyone injured by a gun or for that matter a knife, car or any other deadly weapon. Yes, attacks by mentally unstable persons do happen, but they are few compared to the millions of attacks that don’t happen by responsible gun owners. If one person in a school room is caught cheating on a test, does the teacher flunk the whole class? Why not have the accused mentally evaluated by a Psychiatrist, at the expense of the accuser, and then if necessary confiscate the firearms. If the accuser really thinks there is a problem they won’t mind paying the bill. If it is a false accusation, they make think twice. Either way, the Second Amendment rights of the accused are protected as is the safety of the public.


    I urge you to remember your pledge to protect and defend the Constitution of the State of Maine. Your duty is clear. Vote down this bill.


    Sincerely,
