Republican Rep. Introduced
"Minority Report" Gun Confiscation Bill

The government doesn't have to prove a crime at all.
They just have to lay out a case of subjective claims
that the individual is "dangerous" and shouldn't have a gun.

Yes, it's true. It isn't just Democrats going after your guns, America. Republicans are doing it too, just like Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) warned us earlier this year. Earlier this year, Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) introduced HR 5717, the Jake Laird Act of 2018, which allows for a police officer to confiscate your guns on the grounds that he believes you are "dangerous."

Of course, the bill is unconstitutional on its face, which is why it has been pretty much sitting ignored (until the time is right) in the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations.

First, let's lay down the law here.

The Second Amendment is clear about the right to keep and bear arms.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The Fourth Amendment is clear as well regarding searches and seizures.... .......

This is not a totally new subject but here is dealt with in significant detail. With all the efforts towards 'gun control' it is perhaps the greatest threat ever devised towards attempted confiscation, all with no due process and running right against the Bill of Rights. It is not difficult to imagine an innocent individual being 'targeted' because of a vindictive neighbor who decides to tell lies about some fictional perceived danger, then leading to a 'no knock' confiscation raid by law enforcement. This Orwellian scheme smacks of the idea presented in the movie "Minority Report", where 'pre crime' is promoted as the answer to crime control - "we will arrest this individual just in case". Be very concerned.
