WATCH: Police Commissioner Says He Will Confiscate Guns 

Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia conceded a few months ago that he would confiscate an individual’s firearms based upon an anonymous tip that the individual was a threat to himself or others.

Gramaglia was testifying before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform back in May when he was directly asked by Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins (R) whether he would enforce confiscatory red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders.

“Would you go to your neighbor’s home and confiscate his legally owned weapons, a man that was not under a criminal investigation nor under arrest?  Would you do it?” Higgins asked. 

“The red flag laws…,” Gramaglia began, when Higgins interjected, “That’s a ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ brother.”

“It’s more than a yes or no answer,” said Gramaglia.  

Higgins went on to explain how red flag laws operate and how low the evidentiary bar is to trigger enforcement. 

“‘Determined to be’ is defined by the letter of this law to be an anonymous tip that an American citizen is a threat to themselves or others,” noted Higgins.  

“You’re a police commissioner, a thin-blue-line brother, sworn to uphold the constitution and you’re saying you’d seize those weapons,” he continued. “I see that as a problem.”

Red flag laws work like so, a citizen “determined to be a threat” is disarmed and loses his right to keep and bear arms until he can convince a judge that he is not a danger to himself or others.

Under this system, the accused is guilty until proven innocent or, more accurately, rendered disarmed and defenseless until the state decrees otherwise.

It’s worth noting that it can be weeks before the accused is allowed to go before a judge to respond to the allegations and to tell the other side of the story.  As the saying goes, justice delayed is justice denied. 

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearms industry trade association, spoke to GunsAmerica in the past about the many issues surrounding red flag laws. 

“We are talking about depriving law-abiding citizens of their fundamental civil liberties and if that is to occur, those affected parties have a right to confront witnesses and evidence before a judge renders a decision to enforce an order,” said Mark Oliva, NSSF managing director of public affairs.

“In exigent circumstances when an individual poses an immediate danger to themselves or others, those individuals still have rights and must be afforded the opportunity to come before a judge within a reasonable timeframe. When an individual is arrested, they are before a judge within 24-72 hours. There’s no reason someone should be deprived of their civil liberties without the same standard of justice,” he added. 

There is no hard evidence to suggest that red flag laws “save lives” to the degree proponents tout, but there is plenty of evidence that they are just the start of a larger confiscation scheme.  Case in point, states have been expanding the roster of who is allowed to petition a court for a red flag order. 

Initially, it was only law enforcement and immediate family members who wielded that power.  Now, many states have added to that list registered nurses, psychologists, social workers, teachers, and a wide variety of extended family members and acquaintances.   

But wait, it gets worse.  In at least one state, lawmakers have discussed eliminating the expiration date on red flag orders altogether.  In most cases, the revocation of 2A rights is only supposed to last one year.  But politicians in Connecticut have talked about imposing it indefinitely.

It also bears mentioning that red flag laws do not provide help or assistance to those deemed a public danger.  The government assumes that the immediate seizure of firearms is all that is necessary to render a potentially violent person impotent.  No follow-up care or mental health treatment is administered.

The sole focus is on taking guns.  But sharp objects, blunt instruments, and automobiles kill thousands of people each year.  However, under a red flag law, a suspect’s access to these “weapons” remains unrestricted. 

Last month, Biden signed the “Safer Communities Act,” the first major federal gun control legislation in 30 years. While many saw it as a big nothing burger in terms of its immediate effect on 2A rights, contained in that law are incentives for states to adopt these confiscatory red flag schemes. Nineteen states already have them on the books. Time will tell how many others follow suit now that there’s federal aid on the table.

The hard truth about red flag laws is they weren’t crafted by the state to take guns away from criminals or the mentally deranged. We have plenty of existing laws to handle those legitimate threats. No, politicians designed red flag laws to take guns away from you. And unfortunately, it appears they have at least one police commissioner in power that is eager and willing to do their bidding.

      You, my friend, are a powerful psychic! This is nothing more than a confiscation scheme as demonstrated by Connecticut’s plans to remove the time limits. I “predict” that other states will follow suit sooner, rather than later. I’m looking forward to the first lawsuit on the local government for damaging valuable firearms by incorrect handling or storage.

    I predict litigation. Lawsuits and eventually a SC ruling to outlaw the practice of taking someone’s property without provable cause.

    The practice is rife with opportunity to abuse… an angry spouse or a vindictive ex, etc.

    Point: If I have a firearm(s) in my home for self defense and the cops take it… and later I am the victim of a home invasion and I am injured… are the cops liable for having deprived me of the tools with which I could have defended myself? For essentially having had left me helpless?

    Conversely, if I see what I perceive to be a credible threat in a gun free zone and I arm myself…. is that a defense to having possessed a firearm in a gun free zone?

    Yeah, these laws are red flags, alright!

  • Stan d. Upnow July 16, 2022, 11:14 am

    I understand the intent behind the Red Flag laws, BUT, the vague and loose wording of those laws, plus the “do it now, sort it out later” mentality of them, gives lots of reason for concern.
    And how many times do the so-called police “strike teams” arrive at the wrong address and kill the occupant(s) as they try to defend themselves from what they believe are home invaders?

    No-Knock warrants & Red Flag laws– both need to go into the trash can.

    • Jerry July 17, 2022, 1:48 pm

      I never agreed with the plattitude that “its always easier to get forgiveness than permission”; it is as big a redflag dishonesty as “common sense laws”, “its for your own good”, “this isnt just for your protection, its for your family/neighbors/others”, and “the ends justify the means” and other smoothies that can probably be found in the blatherly drivel of marx, engels, rabbelais, malthuus, and other so-called social warriors. Goes right along with the insidiousity of “Anonymous tips”, in a land where we have the right to face our accusers, and to recieve, exercise even, the due process of the law

    So who decides who’s a danger to who. Do the just pick at random ??? Or by what you say or think about the way the government is being ran. Every cop is going to lose their weapons then. cause they never know when or if they have to draw and do harm to others or themselfs. Maybe if schools and the democrats weren’t so dead set on screwing up kids minds this won’t be happening. Or is this they’re plan so they can take our weapons. One needs to know .

  • Bob July 15, 2022, 4:52 pm

    I took the time to read each comment on this subject. There are, certainly, opinions stated from both sides.
    I, too, am a Vietnam Veteran, a gun owner and a conservative Republican. I don’t, necessarily, vote a straight ticket. I try to research the individual candidates for what they profess to stand for and their character, though that’s a difficult one.
    The initial subject was whether a police commissioner would confiscate guns under a Red Fag Law. Then, killings came into it and political parties. Let’s not leave out the name calling either.
    In my opinion, the persons making threats to kill someone would be choice targets( no pun intended) for the Red Flag. The political advocates are just confused, the name callers don’t know any better.
    I would like for anyone to explain how they think a few hundred, if that many, protesters, invaders, insurrectionist, however you want to describe them, could possibly takeover our government and destroy the democracy.
    Anyway, this was a better diverse back and forth.

  • William Gilhooley July 15, 2022, 1:37 pm

    I don’t think red flag laws are bad. However, any expense including petioning the appropriate court must be borne by the party that seized the guns. And, must be returned within 15 days. And any further seizures should be prohibited within 30 days of the dispostion by an appropriate court

    It doesn’t seem to bother a single politician that these recently popular “Red Flag” laws are clearly unconstitutional, since they deny the right of due process before government confiscation of private property. Even illegal aliens are granted the right of due process, while citizen gun owners are blithely denied it.

        Do you, honestly, believe the people that entered the Capitol on Jan. 6 could, actually, destroy democracy? You must think democracy is hanging by a very thin thread.
        Now, on the other hand, our President Uncle Joe Biden and his, most capable, advisors are bringing about the transition to Socialism faster and with much more suffering for the people of this country.
        The EO’s that were initiated on day one of the present administration started the downhill trek of our economy. Record inflation, gasoline shortages & the supply chain crisis have all come about on their watch. I realize the Party in office gets the credit or blame for such things, but none of this was happening during the last administration. Maybe, it would have had there not been a change, but change came.
        I think, you have more to worry about with the likes of BLM. Our democracy will be and is being replaced with anarchy. Case in point: the 2020 riots that ruined hundreds, if not thousands of small businesses and $2 billion in damages, not to mention the deaths. No outcry from the Left. All the shootings and murders, every week, in our major cities. No outcry from the Left.
        Red Flag Laws are of good intentions, but, too easily, used for personal agendas with, basically, no recourse for the accused.
        Time will tell on all this issues.

    State DSS services operate on a similar system of anonymity. Lower working class people use the DSS like a weapon, they get pissed at their relative or neighbor, they call DSS and report child abuse. A government employee starts a case file, they come out and investigate, and you are watched for a period of time before the case is close, that is until you piss off your relative/neighbor again. Red flag laws will now work just like that, but in this case, you will have to pay for a lawyer to get your rights back, and you have no recourse to deal with your accuser whom you will not even know. With the current SCOTUS in place, I hope this goes to court ASAP so that it can be judged un-Constitutional and struck from the books. Write your Congressman, I have already written to my two RINO’s. Also, while commenting here is pretty anonymous, and of the social media you might use, perhaps never off a gun opinion again, or better yet, get rid of all of it.

    • Mark July 15, 2022, 10:18 am

      The issue is the judicial system is inclined to leave kids with parents and the burden of proof for removal grows everyday.

Good luck getting your guns back on a red flag law.

      There was a time when I would’ve agreed with you, but now, I’m not sure that the “vast majority” would refuse to follow a command….too many “woke” chiefs, commissioners, and civilian review boards that would immediately fire the cop. If the cop is 2 years away from retirement, do you think he/she will jeopardize that pension and benefits?

      • Stan d. Upnow July 16, 2022, 11:35 am

        Correct. Just like the cop who refused to engage the shooter at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, FL, because he was close to retirement and didn’t want to risk his cowardly ass. Due to his inaction, 17 people died.

    I like the idea of a red flag voting law. Except it should apply to politicians and should involve morality/senility and criminality. They would be removed from office and lose all pay and benefits.

    • Bob W July 15, 2022, 9:25 am

      I love your idea. They should put that into effect now. Majorie Taylor Green and that freaking wack job Bobert should be the first to go.

      • Ej harbet July 15, 2022, 11:06 am

        That you fear and hate Greene and bobert says alot about you.

        • Johnny Blaze July 16, 2022, 10:38 am

          That you like and defend them says more about you.

        • Jerry July 17, 2022, 1:27 pm

          From whence cometh yon idea, that because one dislikes a person, and feareth not the saying of such sentiments, then it can, nay must, be spewingly opined that said person fears, yeah even hates, the person about such sentiments he voiced? Think you, we still be in the 17th century, where one can but cry “witch!” and the “threatning person” shall be duly tyed to a stake and surrounded by oiled faggots, with the most-offended being granted the tossing of the first match? O tempo! O mores! Oh, scratch, ive gone and ruint this quill; get another goose!

      • Hondo July 16, 2022, 9:33 am

        Bob W. You come off as an imbecile, was that you intention ? If it was please get lost as we have enough dopey trolls already posting stupid shit here.

  • Jim July 15, 2022, 7:47 am

    So instead of taking illegal guns off the streets, and locking up criminals in possession of illegal guns, he wants to go after innocent people. We know how this ends because we’ve seen it before. Innocent man accused of something, by an anonymous tip gets killed, or kills police officers protecting himself from illegal search and seizure.

  • BJG July 15, 2022, 7:42 am

    Just democrats living up to their communist ideals. It appears All democrats are communist, if not, then they need to switch parties or admit to being party members…

    • Rouge1 July 15, 2022, 9:19 am

      Most demonkkkrats are to stupid to understand what you are stating.

    • Bob W July 15, 2022, 9:33 am

      Not all democrats are crazy just like not all republicans are as crazy as Majorie Taylor Green. I’m a democrat but I’m also a U S Army veteran, a New York City Firefighter who was at the World Trade Center when it was attacked, a gun owner, a patriot, (a real one not like the freaking traitors that attacked my Capitol and tried to take over my government), but most important, I’m a guy who took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. I’m not alone.

      • Dr Motown July 15, 2022, 10:05 am

        Then how can you, the oath-taker, support a party that continuously threatens Constitutional rights, like the 1A, 2A, 4A, 10A, etc? A party whose leadership has stated that the Constitution is outdated and should be a “living breathing document” changeable at the drop of a hat? It seems like you’re talking out of both sides of your mouth, or trying to portray today’s DNC as being the same of the 1960s….it ain’t🥺

      • Rickety Rick July 15, 2022, 11:07 am

        Ahh, that’s the problem with confusion, you live in NYC. So you buy into the propaganda that traitors attacked the capitol, the peoples house, and blah, blah, blah. How about Ray Epps and the capitol police who let people in ? How about the request for national guard that was turned down by Pelosi ? Maybe instead of buying into the corporate media propaganda, you should look at things with an open mind. Say Bahhhh, and be one of their sheep. Patriot is only in your mind as you are a vet who supported the illegal wars by politicians. Learning some true history would help. I too am a vet, from vietnam, and had no choice as we were drafted. Apparently taking that oath meant nothing as you are a democrat.

      • Frank July 15, 2022, 11:17 am

        Yeah… All those cellphone-wielding “insurrectionists”! Funny how the only person to die directly from that event was an unarmed, female, veteran… who was shot through a closed door, at point blank range (while already surrounded by officers) by a sniveling coward, who then ran away like a little pussy (cat).

        I took the oath as well… only I meant it. When it becomes necessary, I’ll have zero problems sending today’s marxists to go see Daddy Karl. Insofar as to being “alone”… there’s more like me than there are like you.

        • Johnny Blaze July 16, 2022, 10:50 am

          That crazy chick was told numerous times to sit her dumb azz down but didn’t listen, just like when you agree with police shooting non compliant urban citizens dont be a hypocrite. Just like in 1861 you crazies thought it was more of you, you are the dem party in 1861. Thats why you support the confederacy.

        • Kane July 18, 2022, 8:46 am

          There was also a death of a lady named Boyland that died at the J6 non-insurrection and this death was also NOT investigated. Was Boyland trampled or stomped by the Capitol Police?

      • Dave July 15, 2022, 2:55 pm

        Wow. Yes, all Dems are crazy and stupid. The traitors who attacked “your Capital” were placed by YOUR OWN GOVERNMENT. Wake up Bob. It was a set up to stop the stopping of the certification of electoral voting. BLM had folks dressed like MAGA people to cause chaos and to prevent the action which was progressing and which would have stopped Biden from being President. Please stop watching the mainstream media Bob. I took that oath too Bob and I’m ready. Sua Sponte

      • Shanz July 15, 2022, 3:55 pm

        With all due respect sir I fear that sitting in your living room collecting a pension watching CNN all day has not benefited you. Let’s investigate the riots of 2020 shall we. Billions in damage, dozens of officer casualties, hundreds of people murdered. Nothing compared to Jan 6 protest though. Ashley Babbit was murdered in cold blood just because she was standing up for what she believed in. She is a hero. You sir are a grumpy old Democrat.

    • Stan d. Upnow July 16, 2022, 11:39 am

      See, the thing is that there is No More Democrat Party. It has morphed into the Progressive-Socialist Party. Those calling themselves “Democrat” are either willfully ignorant, or lying.

  • Armed and Dangerous July 15, 2022, 7:35 am

    We need more congressmen like Clay Higgins. Please get out and vote!!!

  • rudutch July 15, 2022, 7:26 am

    Hey! Asshat! read up, follow it or resign.

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

  • Grandpa Boomer July 15, 2022, 7:11 am

    If you come to take my legally aquired, lawfully used Guns you better bring backup.

  • jay July 15, 2022, 6:51 am

    You come to get my guns with your fucked up red flag laws you had better bring a lot of body bags. You may put me in one, but I will sure as hell fill the others with you morons who have come up with this stupid law. It is always the chicken shit politician who makes these laws and then send the poor soul to enforce it. I fought and bled for this country and the Constitution and you will not destroy what has made this country what it is today.

    • Armed and Dangerous July 15, 2022, 7:31 am

      Hate to inform you Jay, but that ship has sailed. Unfortunately this country today is not what it used to be.

    • scott July 15, 2022, 9:23 am

      What is really F.U. is Jay has to say this.. This country and lots of people are allowing this depravity to exist.. So many with the head in the sand and believing in the Kool Aid..

  • Fal Phil July 15, 2022, 6:37 am

    Some pro-gun congressman needs to propose a red flag voting law. Any anonymous tip from an American citizen that a voter is an illegal alien would have the election board put that person’s name on a no vote list, and said person would have to go to court to prove voting eligibility.

    Same principle. Let’s see how those weasels like that.

    • Paul Brown July 15, 2022, 7:50 am

      Wonderful idea!

    • Charles Goldsmith July 15, 2022, 8:16 am

      Totally agree!

    • Stan d. Upnow July 16, 2022, 11:44 am

      LOL! Yeah, they’ll show-up for that court date right after they show for the court hearing to rule on their “asylum” application. Good Luck!

  • Leigh July 15, 2022, 6:30 am

    He would not be doing it. He would be sending others in his place.
    Sort of like wars. The leaders declare them but rarely participate in the ones they start.
    Much easier to send someone else’s son (or daughter).

  • graceythecat July 15, 2022, 6:23 am

    Higgins is right and it is the commie democrat pedophiles that are destroying America

  • Slim July 15, 2022, 5:52 am

    Louisiana should be proud of the Congressman Clay Higgins, a true American. Gramaglia should have to suffer the anonymous tip. Gramaglia is a picture perfect example of the problems within America

  • Pete Farris July 15, 2022, 5:19 am

    You would think it was an obvious violation of the 2nd and 5th Amendments.

  • paul I'll call you what I want/1st Amendment July 14, 2022, 7:20 pm

    won’t be long before they offer up money to the accusers like a bounty system, then gun registration wouldn’t be necessary. There will always be loop holes to exploit!
