Why I Will Never Vote for a Candidate who Supports Red Flag Laws

It is an unprecedented time in our country – the FBI raided President Trump’s Mara Lago home, which is a violation of his fourth amendment, and the first time in American history a former president has been violated in this manner. The FBI raids homes and arrests people for any reason, at any time of the day or in the wee hours of the morning, for minor crimes – or no crimes at all. Remember Roger Stone’s arrest? Dozens of FBI in SWAT gear, with the complicit media circus poised to capture the moment in real time and his wife in her nightgown in the middle of the night?

January 6th prisoners languish in solitary confinement for over a year, without being charged of a specific crime, with no evidence of wrongdoing presented against them, without access to legal representation, and with no court date in sight. Whatever happened to “due process?” The “right to a speedy trial before a jury of their peers?” Does the DOJ intend to keep them in prison forever??? Their families and lives have been shattered, and they are being beaten, abused and starved. Why isn’t the GOP demanding their release?

The IRS and other federal agencies are buying millions of rounds of ammo and the IRS has hired 87,000 new “employees” to “enforce” burdensome and copious tax laws created by bureaucrats. How did they find so many “qualified” IRS workers in such a short period of time? Might they be hiring Antifa, convicted felons and other radical groups of thugs? Will they come for your house?

To add insult to injury, Local fake news media (Barefoot Media) engages in relentless propaganda, smear campaigns, and churns out hit pieces against conservative candidates, implying guilt and accusing them of engaging in behavior of which their own candidates are guilty. Russ Lemon is piling on with his latest despicable propaganda against Jacqueline Rosario.

When voting, please remember to vote #ConstitutionFirst – ALL the time – Every time! Ignore the “local” legacy-media, which is no longer local, and is blatantly biased. The phrase “shall not infringe” comes to mind and makes me want to shout out loud every time a candidate for public office says he or she supports red flag laws. There are SO MANY reasons to oppose these unconstitutional anti-gun laws which violate our 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments, and brand us “guilty until proven innocent.”

It is an egregious assault on the rights of law abiding citizens. But don’t take my word for it! Please see the what fellow Republican, Royal Brown – also the leader of the 525-member strong Winter Haven 912 group has to say about Red Flag Laws. One of the links attached above is the presentation Royal gave to the RPOF at one of their quarterly meetings.

#Nocompromise #ConstitutionFirst – All the time – every time!
