Lost His 2A Rights – Red Flag Laws – Mistaken Identity

Florida Man Lost His 2A Rights, Thanks To Red Flag Laws And Mistaken Identity

Beth Baumann | Aug 19, 2019

(Below are the last few paragraphs of the article. The entire article on Townhall is available at the link below.)

Even though it was evident they had the wrong man, Carpenter was forced to hand over his firearms. There was no hearing or any kind of court proceeding.

“The last thing on my mind was me having to turn over my gun,” Carpenter told AmmoLand. “I was upset when the Sheriff told me that I need to surrender my gun before any due process.”

Here’s where things get even more ridiculous.

Carpenter’s firearms had to remain in police custody until the plaintiff can say, in court, that he’s not the man that she filed a complaint against. He’d then have to petition the court to get his firearms back…and he would have to bear the cost. Carpenter will get his day in court later this month.

What’s happening to this man is the exact instance Second Amendment supporters have worried about. This very instant is what we’ve talked about, time and time again. What if Carpenter needed to defend himself between now and his court date? He couldn’t, because the government failed him.

He’s having to prove himself innocent in a country where everyone is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty.

  1. The picture says it very well, these regulations, laws or restrictions are pure communism and pure evil as are all gun laws, regulations or restrictions.

  2. The above article reports a crime that is being perpetrated by the left and the globalist elite against loyal American citizens.

    Oath Keepers might consider adding to our website a link to the Gun Owners of America website where Oath Keepers can see the latest moves by the federal and state government for or against gun owners. You do not have to be a member of GOA in order to “Take Action” on current issues by sending timely and coordinated emails to the President, members of Congress, or state officials to require them to support our rights as restated in the 2nd Amendment. The address is . This move may substantially increase the feedback of Americans to the President, Congress, and state governments in support of our 2nd Amendment.
    Thank you for your consideration of this matter.

  3. This man should be filing a lawsuit against all who committed this crime against him. It should be a direct Supreme Court lawsuit. Nothing less.

  4. Let us discuss what is really wrong here. There is no person who SERVES WITHIN our governments, state and federal, who are not required to take an Oath to support and defend the US Constitution (plus for some, also their own state’s Constitution) and that requirement comes BEFORE anything else they do – duties of the position occupied, orders of superiors, etc. Why before? Because every sworn individual be they LE, military, civil are to support and defend our legitimate governments first and foremost. The misunderstanding that most seem to have is that those who
    SERVE WITHIN our governments at any level are the governments – they are not. They are put into place to carry out duties of the position/office they occupy.

    Our governments are those documents themselves, the US Constitution, and each state’s Constitution. Because they are in writing, all – those who serve and those who don’t can know exactly what is required of those who serve in any position within our governments. It is also important to know that those documents are not only the supreme law and highest law, but are contracts for all those who serve. Before one says the Oath is only for show, it is against our laws to break it/them.

    The requirement for all Federal and State Civil officers to give their solemn and binding Oath is established in Article VI, Section 1, Clause 4. Those that serve within our governments – state and general – are bound by their Oath to support the US Constitution. Federal law regulating oath of office by government officials – state and federal – is divided into four parts along with an executive order that further defines the law for purposes of enforcement.

    5 U.S.C. 3331, provides the text of the actual oath of office the three branches of our government, the military, all law enforcement, the heads of the States, all federal employees are required to take before assuming office.

    5 U.S.C. 3333 requires the three branches of our government, the military, all law enforcement, the heads of the States, all federal employees sign an affidavit that they have taken the oath of office required by 5 U.S.C. 3331 and have not or will not violate that oath of office during their tenure of office.

    18 U.S.C. 1918 provides penalties for violation of oath of office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 which include: (1) removal from office and; (2) confinement or a fine.

    5 U.S.C. 7311 explicitly makes it a federal criminal offense for anyone employed in the United States Government to “advocate the overthrow of our constitutional form of government”.

    The definition of “advocate” is further specified in Executive Order 10450 for the purposes of enforcement supplements 5 U.S.C. 7311. Executive Order 10450 provision specifies it is a violation of 5 U.S.C. 7311 for any person taking the oath of office to advocate “the alteration … of the form of the government of the United States by unconstitutional means.”

    It is important to realize that our form of government is defined by the Constitution of the United States. That according to Executive Order 10450 and 5 U.S. 7311 any act taken by government officials who have taken the oath of office prescribed by 5 U.S.C. 3331 which alters the form of government other then by amendment, is a criminal violation of the 5 U.S.C. 7311.

    Brookfield Construction Company V. Stewart 284 F Sup. 94: “An officer who acts in violation of the constitution ceases to represent the government.”

    The People vs. Herkimer, 15 American Decisions 379, 4 Cowen (NY 345, 348 (1825)): “The people, or the Sovereign are not bound by general words in statutes, restrictive of prerogative rights, titles or interests, unless expressly named. Acts of limitation do not bind at the King, nor the people. The people have been ceded all the rights of the king, the former Sovereign. …”

    For those who serve in the federal, the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of this land, the only crimes assigned to the federal government in the Constitution for law enforcement purposes are Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations, nothing else.

    It is also critical to those who serve within our government to read this from Tench Coxe: “Who are the militia? are they not ourselves. Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American… THE UNLIMITED POWER OF THE SWORD IS NOT IN THE HANDS OF EITHER THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENTS BUT, where I trust in God it will ever remain, IN THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE.”
