The Founding Fathers of the United States of America, feared the possibility of the new Constitutional Republic, eventually morphing into a tyrannical government.
Included in the Bill Of Rights, the Constitution of United States of America 1789 – Amendment II, the founders added a further guarantee that the citizenry could arm themselves to defer a tyrannical government from infringing on their rights.
“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Anti-gun activists are using a very small number of gun violence cases to enact “Red Flag Laws” which in effect strip away the 2A from American citizens unless they can convince a judge to re-instate them after the fact.
“In the United States, a red flag law is a gun control law that permits police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves.”
The House of Representatives passed a final version of the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Tuesday night which does not contain the red flag law language present in the original.
The Washington Post reported that the NDAA passed Tuesday by a vote of 363 to 70.
The NRA tweeted out the good news
BREAKING: U.S. House just passed a revised version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which notably DOES NOT INCLUDE unconstitutional red flag laws for military personnel.
The bill now awaits action in the U.S. Senate, which is expected in coming days. Stay tuned.

On September 25, 2021, Breitbart News noted the initial 2022 NDAA legislation passed House with red flag law language applicable to servicemen and women. The 2022 NDAA contained a provision authorizing military courts to issue orders restraining military personnel from “possessing, receiving, or otherwise accessing a firearm.”
The provision for prohibiting gun possession is contained in Section 529 of the 2022 NDAA. That section was titled, “Authority Of Military Judges And Military Magistrates To Issue Military Court Protective Orders.”
The specific provision would have given military courts the authority to prohibit gun possession via protective orders in two ways: 1. By giving the subject of the order an “opportunity to be heard on the order.” 2. By issuing the order ex parte. However, Section 529 in the final version of the 2022 NDAA is completely different, dealing with “exemptions and deferments for a possible military draft.”
