Gun Control Sneaks by Lackadaisical Republicans
House Republicans were asleep at the wheel this week and missed a major piece of gun control legislation buried deep in the original text of H.R. 6395, a $740.5 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on Tuesday—legislation they had unanimously voted out of committee.

[...]

On page 343 of 1427 lay a section stating: “a military court protective order issued on an ex parte basis shall restrain a person from possessing, receiving, or otherwise accessing a firearm.”

Understood in context, Section 542 of the bill codified a new “red flag” gun confiscation order program enforceable against any person subject to the United States Code of Military Justice—meaning both active duty military and retirees, among others. Because these would be issued on an ex parte basis, the gun owner would get no notice, no attorney, and no ability to defend himself against the accusations—in short, no due process.

Missed accidentally on purpose I’d bet.

Stabbed in the back again. :angryvillagers:

Did you all get your emergency action alerts on this from Gun Owners of America and contact your reps before the vote?

Military personnel have long been held to be subject to things that would be unconstitutional to impose on civilians. If you go all the way back to the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers they speak of "troops" (regular army soldiers) like they were little more than slaves of the state, and thuggish slaves at that. Troops were considered the antithesis of a free citizen.
