State Passes Bill To Seize Guns Based on Entirely 'Unchallenged' Accusations, With NO Due Pr

• https://thefreethoughtproject.com

Officials in Colorado have passed a disturbing law that will allow police to confiscate people's weapons based solely on unchallenged accusations from others.

In February of 2018, after the tragic shooting in Parkland, FL, President Donald Trump took to national television to betray his oath to the Constitution and his supporters and famously said, "take the guns first, go through due process second." While this was largely ignored by his base and downplayed in the media, since then—that's exactly what's been happening.

As politicians and anti-gun rights activists continuously chant, "we don't want to take your guns," behind the scenes — in only the year — politicians have been working overtime to limit your right to bear arms.

In just the first six months after the shooting in Parkland and the president's statement, the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence recorded a whopping 55 new gun control measures in 26 states. That number is now far greater as states pass "red flag" gun laws to literally do what Trump advocated for in Feb. 2018. They are taking the guns first and seeking due process second.

Colorado just became the 15th state to pass such a law and if it is signed by the governor—which it will be—Colorado citizens will be subject to laws which allow their guns to be seized without them having any say in it whatsoever.

Citizens who are targeted by the law will be deemed guilty first and only after their guns are taken, will they have a chance to defend themselves in court. This is the de facto removal of due process.

As Reuters reports, under the legislation, a family member or law enforcement officer could petition a judge to seize firearms from a person they think is a threat to themselves or others. The judge could then hold a hearing without the targeted person being present and grant a temporary order for 14 days.

People will have to consider their guns as their property, not as guns or firearms. Then they will have to take the men/women who confiscate their property to court in a Federal District Court (not United States District Court). FDC is a court of record that acts under the common law, where the judge is only a referee, and the jury is the real judge. If this unconstitutional law cannot be struck down in a regular court, the FDC will be the only way to go. Then the striking down of the law will be left up to the jury. See CORPUS JURIS SECUNDUM, volume 25, section 334.
