Anti-liberty leftists repeatedly try gaslighting to advance their obvious goal of confiscating guns. Their latest push for “red flag” laws is no different.

Following the recent tragedy in Uvalde, the anti-liberty left didn’t waste any time blaming innocent gun owners. They immediately began talking about “red flag” laws, which sound merely helpful but which are, in fact, unconstitutional gun grabs under another name.

This is a typical leftist tactic: avoiding certain words because they would convey what is really taking place. Democrats routinely have their best wordsmiths conjure up soft language for wholesale gun confiscation. Start with those so-called “red flag” orders, which imply a government promise to confront serious dangers. Now that the people have become wise to this crass word manipulation, they’ve even starting to roll out a new version: “Yellow flag” orders. It’s got all the unconstitutional gun confiscation as before, but with a slightly brand new name.

That’s just the beginning of the naming frenzy, all intended to show that the government is just here to help. These unconstitutional abominations are also known as Extreme Risk Firearm Protection Orders (ERFPO), Risk Protection Orders (RPO), Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO), and Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVRO). Liberticidal leftists have also been wearing out their thesaurus conjuring up harmless descriptions of how these things work. Instead of talking about how an innocent person’s means of self-defense and personal property will be taken at gunpoint, they talk about how these laws “temporarily” separate people from their guns or keep guns out of the hands of individuals perceived as a danger to themselves and others.

Of course, the reality is quite different. As Tucker Carlson eloquently stated last week:

Yesterday, they unveiled their plan to seize firearms from American citizens who have not been convicted of a crime or even accused. Now, under normal circumstances, it would be instantly obvious that that is unconstitutional. In our system, you have to be convicted before you can be punished, but in the hysteria that understandably follows a tragedy this horrible, politicians know that they can suspend civil liberties.

He’s right, of course. There won’t be a social worker gently separating a madman from his weapons. In most cases, these “red flag” gun confiscation orders will be executed by heavily armed law enforcement personnel in an early morning raid. Your (and perhaps your dog’s) chances of survival depend on the severity of the raid.

What’s even worse is that you don’t really need to own any firearms to have a SWAT team smash through your door at 4:00 am on a gun hunt. In most cases, an accuser only needs to assert you are somehow “dangerous” and might own guns. Perhaps the accusing dislikes you and wants revenge. This is just another basis from them to SWAT you—that is, sic panicked law enforcement officers on you in the hope that you die. Or perhaps it’s enough that the SWAT team will literally tear your house apart to find that “maybe” gun.

No matter what leftists promise in Congress, among themselves, leftists are open about their goals:

But for popular consumption, you get Morning Joe saying it’s paranoid to claim that the government is coming for guns, only to praise Beto O’Rourke for saying exactly that.
