Last week, anti-gun representatives introduced Assembly Bill 350, to create “red flag” gun confiscation orders in Wisconsin. It has been referred to the Assembly Judiciary Committee. Please contact your lawmakers and ask them to OPPOSE AB 350.
Assembly Bill 350 allows for the seizure of an individual’s firearms on baseless accusations, without a hearing or other opportunity for the evidence to be heard in court. They permit the government to seize firearms based on weak and nebulous standards of evidence.
A person subject to a suspension of a Constitutional right should be entitled to high evidentiary standards, an opportunity to be heard, and the right to face his or her accusers. Civil liberties advocates from across the political spectrum have expressed concerns about these “red flag” bills and how the procedure might lead to abuses because of insufficient due process protections in the bills.
Again, please contact your lawmakers and ask them to OPPOSE AB 350.
