Three Tennessee Republican congressmen voted yes on a bill last month that the Gun Owners of America call a “Red Flag” that would permit the government to confiscate guns from members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Members of the Democratic-majority U.S. House of Representatives passed that bill, H.

R. 6395, late last month, at a vote of 295 to 125, according to the House website.

Staff for those three Republican congressmen, U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN-04), U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN-03), and U.S. Rep. David Kustoff (R-TN-08) did not return The Tennessee Star’s requests for comment Friday.

Tennessee’s two Democratic congressmen, U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN-09) and U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (D-05) voted yes on the bill.

U.S. Rep. John Rose (R-TN-06), U.S. Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN-02), U.S. Rep. Phil Roe (R-TN-01), and U.S. Rep. Mark Green (R-TN-07) all voted no.

GOA members, on their website, scolded the House Republicans who voted yes.

“GOA Founder H. L. Richardson wrote a book entitled What Makes You Think We Read the Bills,” members wrote.

“That adage was never more true than last week, when a bucketload of House ‘pro-gun’ Republicans voted to pass a giant defense bill containing, in its bowels, a ‘red flag’ gun confiscation proposal for the military — hidden there by Nancy Pelosi’s gun-hating stooges.”

Under the bill, government officials can use unsubstantiated allegations from a hostile relative as a means to strip gun owners of their Second Amendment rights in an ex parte proceeding, GOA members wrote.

GOA members said this legislation raises several questions.

Among them:

• What is the standard of proof for taking away the gun owner’s constitutional rights?

• What will the accuser need to show?

• What constitutional rights will the military court proceedings recognize?

• What will the police do with their gun confiscation order? Ransack the house?  Kill the threatening (i.e., non-compliant) gun owner?

“House Republicans were caught sleeping,” GOA members said.

“Despite Trump’s threat to veto the bill, many Republicans helped pass gun confiscation arm-in-arm with anti-gun Democrats in a veto-proof majority.”
