Wisconsin’s Gov. Pushing Firearm Confiscation Orders
New Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is wasting no time in attacking the Second Amendment, pushing for a law that will allow gun confiscation.
It is what is known as a red flag law that will allow a judge to issue a confiscation order or allow a family member to accuse a gun owner of being a danger to himself or others, whether they are or not. In California, not only can they confiscate guns, but ammunition and accessories as well.
Once your guns are confiscated it is almost impossible to get them back even after you prove your guns should not have been confiscated to begin with.
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) is pushing a red flag law that would allow a judge to issue orders resulting in firearm confiscation.
WISN reports that Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul (D) is also calling for the confiscatory measure to be put in place.
Kaul said the law “will allow law enforcement or family members to go to a judge and ensure that somebody who is a threat to themselves or others is temporarily disarmed.”
Red flag laws have become a popular gun control over the past few years and particularly since the February 14, 2018, Parkland school shooting.
California Democrats passed a red flag law in 2014 and have incrementally expanded it in the years since. For example, in 2018, California’s law was amended to make it easier to get a confiscation order, and on January 1, 2019, it was broadened to allow confiscation of ammunition and firearm accessories.

“That will allow law enforcement or family members to go to a judge and ensure that somebody who is a threat to themselves or others is temporarily disarmed,” Tony Evers said during the address in the Wisconsin Capitol Rotunda.
The president of Wisconsin Carry, Nik Clark, said red flag laws go too far.
“Red flag laws, I mean, that is just a blatant attempt to take away due process from an individual,” Clark said.
