A response to Sen. Thom Tillis on his double speak on ERPO's

A Weasel Whisperer is similar to a Horse Whisperer except that they interpret the double speak of politicians.  In this case, we have Sen. Thom Tillis talking out of both sides of his mouth about what he calls ‘ERPOs’ so-called “red-flag” laws or what we lovingly call ‘Gun Confiscation SWATing’.

In a recent letter to his constituents, he stated that "I have serious concerns about any law that allows law enforcement officers to take an individual’s firearms without robust due process protections."  This really means that there are NO due process protections, ‘robust’ or otherwise.

The double speak continues where he says that "I am supportive of common-sense measures to prevent dangerous criminals and severely mentally ill individuals from having access to firearms."

The 5th Amendment states in part that ‘nor shall any person…. be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law’.  

An Ex parte hearing is NOT due process, it is a one-sided trial that takes place without YOUR knowledge, where YOU can be presumed to be guilty and punished without ever doing anything wrong. AND THEN YOU have to prove yourself innocent after the fact.  It turns the justice system upside down and inside out that has already lead to one death.

Worse yet, a presidential candidate wants to have you ‘convicted’ and punished for allegedly having the wrong ideas, what George Orwell called ‘Wrongthink’.

The fact is, there are already laws on the books to take care of people who pose a danger to themselves or others.  These are called ‘mental health holds’ that have due process protections built in, so it is an outright Lie to claim this is an emergency situation.  In other words, ‘common-sense measures’ already exist. 

Senator Thom Tillis, possibly to be known going forward as “Senator ‘Red Flag’ Tillis,” is now in favor of full blown, unconstitutional gun control, and putting people's lives in danger. Tillis is thumbing his nose at the Bill of Rights with an across the board assault on not just one, but several amendments: the 2nd (keep and bear arms), 4th  (illegal seizure of effects), 5th (due process), and 6th (more due process). 
There are so many things wrong with these laws that we can’t list them all, beginning with the fact that they don’t work, according to Dr. John Lott’s Crime Prevention Research Center, even causing homicides to rise after a ‘red  flag’ law went into effect in one case, to the very real chance of these laws being used for revenge and blackmail – whether or not you own any guns.
Why does Thom Tillis have two faces on the Second Amendment? Surely, you know the answer to that. The important thing now is that we spread the word about Tillis’s threatened betrayal and get to work stopping it.

Suggested Subject: Stop Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws!



Dear Senator:


I am writing in response to your support of Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws or (Extreme Risk Protection Orders or so-called ‘Red Flag’ Laws). Your recent letter taking both sides without objecting to these unconstitutional abominations did little to assuage my concerns that you will support these measures that will destroy due process protections.  


As you must know, these laws threaten Second, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendment protections—at least. With that in mind, it’s important that I inform you that your failure to address these critical questions in your statement will not have the desired effect. My understanding of red flag laws remains clear and talking around these severe problems will not change my view.

As a voter and a gun owner, I demand that you immediately cease this attempted obfuscation of the true nature of red flag laws. Instead, I expect you to live up to your oath of office, the Republican Party’s platform and the Second Amendment.

I’ll be monitoring your actions on this matter through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.
