Florida's gun confiscation process continues

Captain's Journal quoting OutdoorhubThe Risk Protection Order, signed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott, essentially strips a person’s second amendment rights if a task force team and a judge believe it is warranted – meaning if the person shows any signs of being a threat to themselves or others.

According to WFTS-TV, Sgt. Jason Schmittendorf, of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, said approximately 200 guns have been confiscated in Florida since the red-flag law was enacted. “Around 30,000 rounds of ammunition were also taken,” he stated.

Remember, by its very nature and intent, the people subjected to police raids (with associated risk of violent death), confiscation of their legal property, and resulting legal expenses have done nothing wrong. If they had committed a crime, they could be charged with that crime, and upon conviction, their guns would be disposed of -- if in fact they are convicted. The "red flag" law is handled by a judge who hears one side of the case put together by a "task force" which has no interest in protecting the rights of the accused.

This is practically a textbook due process violation.
