Red Flag Gun Seizure legislation allows gun owners to have their firearms and ammunition confiscated through judicial orders before they’ve been charged, let alone convicted, of a crime. Federal legislation enacted in 2022 allows Joe Biden to bribe states into passing these ‘Red Flag’ laws with $750,000,000 worth of taxpayer money.
DETAILS ON THIS LEGISLATION
☐ Would prohibit the state or political sub-divisions from seizing firearms from anyone not convicted of a felony crime under state or federal law
☐ Would prohibit the state or political sub-divisions in Iowa from using federal money to enforce ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’
☐ Would allow Iowans to take political sub-divisions and law enforcement agencies who violate this legislation into court for civil damages
☐ Does not change current Iowa law in any way regarding the purchase, transportation, or use of firearms, ammunition, or accessories
WHAT GUN OWNERS WANT
Red Flag Gun Seizures violate the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th Amendments to the United States Constitution and allow a person’s enemies (like an ex-spouse) to urge a judge to order the seizure of their firearms before they have been convicted of a crime. In many cases, these judicial hearings happen in secret, denying the gun owner any due process rights at all. Like all other forms of gun control, ‘Red Flag’ laws won’t stop a committed criminal, but they are very effective at disarming mass numbers of gun owners. Iowa Gun Owners is 100% OPPOSED to any form of this legislation on behalf of our members. Our members are active, having propelled the ‘Freedom Amendment’ to pass with over 65% of the vote in 2022 and defeating anti-gun candidates at the state and federal level going back to 2010.
