David Hogg winning in Florida: Hundreds of gun owners stripped of their rights
After the Parkland High School shooting, Democrats immediately began using the tragedy to push their political agenda.
They refused to blame the mistakes at the Broward County Sheriffs Office and instead targeted gun owners.
Now David Hogg has achieved a quiet victory that should concern every gun owner.
Florida law enforcement has confiscated about 200 firearms and 30,000 rounds of ammunition under a new law.
Fox News reports:
Hundreds of gun owners in Florida have been ordered to give up their guns under a new law that took effect after the deadly Parkland shooting in February, according to a report published Monday.
The Risk Protection Order, signed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott just three weeks after a gunman killed 17 people at Stoneman Douglas, aims to temporarily remove weapons from gun owners who have been deemed by a judge to possibly be a threat to themselves or others.
Roughly 200 firearms have been confiscated in the state since the law was enacted, Sgt. Jason Schmittendorf, of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, told WFTS-TV. “Around 30,000 rounds of ammunition” were also taken, he said.
A five-person team in the county that’s worked solely on the risk protection law reportedly has filed 64 risk protection petitions in court. Broward County, according to the news outlet, has filed 88 risk protection petitions since March.
At the George Soros-backed “March for Our Lives” earlier this year in Washington, D.C., one anti-gun activist announced, “when they give us that inch – that bump stock ban – we will take a mile.”
Democrats know that gun control is a losing issue, so instead of calling for outright confiscation, they do it under the guise of “mental health issues.”
Tucker Carlson recently exposed so-called “Red Flag” laws that pose another very dangerous threat to law-abiding gun owners.
Under these laws, a private citizen can issue a complaint about a law-abiding gun owner that would result in confiscation of their firearms.
The gun owner would then bear the burden of proof to show the court they deserve their Second Amendment rights back. This equates to gun owners are guilty until proven innocent.
