Trump Gets Burned By Anonymous Whistleblower in Firearms-Red-Flag Style Complaint
BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The anonymous whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump now being used by Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry is tantamount to a “red flag” action against a gun owner, with the accused being presumed guilty until he or she can prove their innocence, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.
“The lynch mob mentality now being exhibited by Capitol Hill Democrats is the same kind of rush-to-judgment thinking that courts and prosecutors use to rationalize seizing someone’s firearms, while throwing due process under the nearest bus,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.
“Far-left House Democrats, who have wanted to remove the duly-elected president from office since the 2016 election are treating this anonymous complaint like gospel, virtually the same way the legal system treats a so-called ‘red flag’ complaint against a gun owner.
“Completely absent from this political circus act is anything close to skepticism,” he continued. “There’s a transcript of a telephone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president which Trump’s detractors read one way and his supporters read another way, and that’s about it. At least the president has the advantage of knowing there’s been a complaint filed, but in the case of a ‘red flag’ allegation, the gun owner typically doesn’t know a thing until police come knocking on the door. In either case, neither the president or an affected gun owner has had the opportunity to face their accuser.
“Many people are convinced that the president’s case amounts to political theatrics,” Gottlieb said. “However, there are no theatrics involved when a private citizen’s property is seized. As we saw last year in Maryland, a gun owner was served and something went wrong, and that person was shot dead inside his own front door.
“We’re not sure how this drama will play out against President Trump,” he noted, “but we do know that anytime an anonymous complaint can be used to launch something as serious as an impeachment inquiry, by the same people who are pushing ‘red flag’ laws against gun owners, it’s time to seriously re-think both processes.
“If this can happen to a president,” Gottlieb observed, “how long will it be before a ‘red flag’ case can be launched on the basis of an anonymous complaint? Step-by-step, it appears we’re getting closer to the kind of government the Second Amendment was designed to protect us against, and that’s alarming.”
The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.
I wonder if Trump enjoys a new found respect for Due Process,that in his own words he would have denied citizens who avail themselves of their 2 nd. amendment right.
Everyone deserves their right to due process no matter the allegation as all Red Flag laws are un Constitutional
@GMB,one thing that pisses me off more than anything is these RINO SOB’s who try and defend ERPO’s. They say that your due process will be protected if implemented. I say fuck you,due process is the protection !
Correct 100%,Eff the Leftards of either party for the tyrants they are.
Me too, I DESPISE RINO’s as the traitors to the Constitution that they are, ESPECIALLY Crawdad Crenshaw! His love for the Orwellian TAPS Act is disgusting! NO RED FLAG LAW HAS DUE PROCESS. It violates our Rights in a dozen different ways!!
If they want to do this, they’ll get massive pushback in the form of a WALL OF HOT LEAD!
@Will Flatt,RINOS’s to me are worse scum than the socialists. They are traitors who betrayed us and the 2A. That’s expected from the socialists,not them ! Why should Constitutional protection (due process) need to be protected ?
Yeah, socialists will always step to the left and yeah we can count on that. I despise the RINO’s for precisely the reason you just cited. They have NO BUSINESS being in the GOP if they aren’t going to be REAL conservatives!! And what should Republicans be conserving??
LIBERTY!! Those who don’t should hang right alongside the commies when the Nuremberg Rules are applied!
@Will Flatt,you got that exactly right brother !
One can only hope! Whomever gets to be President of the US has a FULL workday that doesn’t leave much time for personal reflection. Hopefully God will touch his heart just as he lies down to go to sleep and puts it on him that he must not allow due process to be undermined, and that the 2nd Amendment must be honored in its entirety!
Trump is also not getting due process from Pelosi, who’s not holding a formal full House impeachment vote, which if taken would give the Republicans a role in the current circus. If impeached, one can only hope he gets the same lack of due process a Watergate Committee cabal including Hillary were planning for Nixon,
Sorry but due process can’t be used to steal rights of which the gov did not grant. Copied directly off the DOJ website complete with misspelling the word “inalienable” in 2A STANDS. Words have meaning and facts ARE RELEVANT. Lynch the traitors and restore the republic! Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done… Read more »
Trump was ready for this. He had the President of Ukraine on hand to deny the allegations on live TV “I was not pressured” and released the transcripts of the phone call in question after ordering them declassified. This is nothing but RussiaRussiaRussia 2.0 and it too will fail. But yeah, this is just like a red flag, and the media and Demorats will be sure to hype the guilty till proven innocent angle right up to the moment this blows up in their faces. Did you know, for example, that Joe Biden bragged about doing this as VP what… Read more »
We still execute traitors. The issue was settled in Congress and USSC months ago. Vacation at GITMO is off.
They have to be held somewhere pending their execution date. Gitmo seems as good a place as any. Then toss a noose around their neck & hoist ’em up off the ground.
@USA,start stretching some necks and the socialists will run like the pissants they are.
Will, the progressives are playing the long game. While what you said is true, there’s a bigger, meaner fox in the hen house. Something barely anyone caught is that Volker, the guy put on the “Special Envoy to Ukraine,” is a McCain disciple, and resigned a few days ago…right after the faux scandal broke. Additionally, the progressives are already asking for many of Trump’s conversations with other world leaders. Here’s why. Once, transcripts of legitimate, private conversations get exposed, the only world leaders that will talk to Trump going forward, will be despots, and tyrants. It’s an “Isolation Technique.” Then… Read more »
I don’t think they will get that far. Look at how long the Mueller BS dragged out. Now it’s RussiaRussiaRussia 2.0 with Ukraine, and they intend to milk this non-scandal and impeachment “inquiry” all the way to November 2020. This will explode in their faces since Biden did the exact thing that they’re accusing Trump of doing, and Biden even BRAGGED ABOUT WHAT HE DID PUBLICLY! Moreover, Trump working with the President of Ukraine on corruption matters is his obligation under a law that BIDEN WROTE and was SIGNED BY BILL CLINTON in the 90’s!! There’s so much to this… Read more »
I wonder what President Trump still thinks due process ? Take their guns,due process later ? Impeach first,due process later ? Fuck both !
