Bearing Arms reporting on Joe Biden’s gun control executive orders:
The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states. Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others. The President urges Congress to pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own. In the interim, the Justice Department’s published model legislation will make it easier for states that want to adopt red flag laws to do so.
Biden can’t require states adopt Extreme Risk Protection Orders, but as his order mentions, he wants to incentivize states to do so, and you can bet that his model legislation is going to be short on due process and long on the denial of constitutional rights without even being charged or accused of a crime.
Count on Gov. Tony Evers lapping up the suggested model red legislation from Biden like a hunting dog.
I would suspect any type of proposal would be DOA in the GOP-controlled state Legislature.
