    Green Flag Laws

    With all the talk about the awful red flag laws and how they've been applied in some states and how they're in the process of being applied in other states, I've got a proposal on how to fight red flag laws and I call it "green flag laws." With green flag laws you can enjoy "green flag status." The way you get green flag status is by undergoing a background check just as if you were buying a gun, you would be checked for any criminal, mental health, or substance abuse history and so forth. You would also have to get a few references, people who can vouch that you're a person of good character. Green flag status would be good for a year. When it expires it can be renewed by repeating the process above.

    The benefits to being under green flag status are these. You are immune to being red flagged, so if somebody says you're a threat or whatever in a place that has a red flag law you would not get your guns seized prior to undergoing due process the way you would be if you didn't have green flag status. Also, when buying firearms from an FFL dealer you don't have to undergo a NICS check or any kind of background check since your green flag status would say that you're eligible to buy and own guns. So this is how we can fight against red flag laws, with green flag laws, just a thought.

    Talk about not only falling for the anti gunner BS but happily helping them with their agenda!

    I prefer the red,white and blue flag laws myself. No permits, no background checks. Some people in life are dangerous, I thought that was why we all carried guns?

    We already have a "Green Flag Law". It is called the US Constitution's Second Amendment.

    Hey that's a terrific idea! Maybe we can get Green Flag laws to practice free speech, not undergo illegal search and seizures, and not be forced to quarter troops in our homes!

    NO. JUST. NO. What part of "Shall not be infringed." do you not understand? We have enough infringements, and you're proposing an entire paradigm shift in firearms purchasing regulations, in essence, you have proposed what the gun-o-phobes wants as a mid-step in their march toward complete confiscation.

    first, paint a negative as a positive.
    then, raise the bar to make it harder to attain the mark
    then, raise the bar again. Each time, confiscate the guns of all who can't meet the new mark. No grandfathering.
    somewhere along the line, require licenses and registration of all firearms
    then, door-to-door confiscation.

    No thank you.

    Move to Texas. We already have all that in our LTC. Of course the problem is that certain people can say anything, no matter how outlandish a lie, and everyone just nods and says, yep, yep. If they accuse SCOTUS candidates, they can accuse you.

    Unfortunately the progressives have caused society to... ummm... progress past innocent until proven guilty to guilty of whatever you are suspected of maybe might perhaps thought about doing.

    No.

    I'm not willing to surrender the Bill of Rights just because some nitwits are afraid of their own shadows.
