    Remember the "red flag" foolishness we thought had died a peaceful death this past summer? Well, it is back again with HB 131, by Moody, and with SB 157, by Rodríguez. This is the same great idea which just resulted in a Maryland man being killed by police carrying out one of these orders.

    SB 157:

    Some disturbing stuff in there.
    Zero protection or restitution for falsely accused gun owners.
    Makes it illegal to give your under 18 children or grandchildren a firearm.

    Time to contact my representatives.

    Equally important will be contacting the committee members once the bill is assigned. They may not be your district representatives but when they serve on a committee, they are answerable to all Texas citizens. Enough pressure brought to bear on the committee may be enough to keep the bill from getting to the floor.

    So full of bad it is mind numbing.
    Not to mention unconstitutional. All burden of proof and expense is on the accused and nothing for false accusations.

    SB 157 is in the hands of the State Affairs committee. No meetings or hearings scheduled as of this date.

    My concern is federal red flag laws, Cornyn, Graham, Rubio all appear interested
    in passing some form of Red Flag, or it seems so according to various media sources.
    The left is dangerous alone without the help of Republicans.

    Unfortunately, it’s making ground in the senate. From GOA today:

    Because Lindsey Graham caved, the Senate will hold hearings today on Red Flag Gun Grabs which would let law enforcement confiscate your firearms without any due process.
    Worst of all, the same Senators who viciously attacked Justice Kavanaugh will be conducting these hearings on YOUR God-given rights.
    That’s why we’re going to FLOOD the inboxes of every Senator with letters signed by American voters like you, demanding that they VOTE NO on any Red Flag Gun Grabs.
    Add your name to our pre-written letter right now DEMANDING that Senators VOTE NO on any and all Red Flag Gun Grabs.
