Anonymous accusations with no due process whatsoever should never lead to infringement of rights. Red flag laws can easily run afoul of both your 2nd and 4th Amendment rights. Beware of "feel-good" policies created as fear-driven knee-jerk reactions. We must be vigilant to protect our freedoms.
Liberals are really good at coming up with titles for horrible legislation to try fool people into thinking some bill is a good idea. Such is the case with New Mexico's "Extreme Risk Firearm Protection Order Act" just signed by the state's Democrat Governor. It's a red flag law. It takes away due process. It stomps on the Bill of Rights. Most New Mexico sheriffs (the people who are actually responsible for public safety) agree with us. They don't agree with this un-Constitutional bill and they have plans to sue. Well done, sheriffs.
New Mexico Sheriffs Association members take their oath to uphold the rule of law seriously. Last year they halted state red flag legislation. They plan on doing the same this year, as their spokesperson noted, “This bill violates (the Constitution) and due process. It violates the 4th Amendment and 5th Amendment without (the accused) committing a criminal act.” They will refuse to enforce red flag warrants. Without law enforcement officers like these, liberal legislators would have full reign to restrict our rights.

Now more than ever, it's important that we fight for our right to protect ourselves. Second Amendment rights are being attacked by well-meaning people who don't understand their importance.
