Rep. Jim Jordan Investigates Red Flag Resource Center

Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has launched an investigation into the Biden administration’s National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center, which TXGR reported on last week. 

In his letter directed to Cassandra Crifasi and Joshua Horwitz, co-founders of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Violence Solutions, Jordan seeks clarity on the center’s operations and the ramifications of red flag laws. Jordan’s scrutiny of the allocation of taxpayer-funded grants and adherence to legal provisions underscores the imperative of oversight in safeguarding individual liberties.

The National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center, heralded by Vice President Kamala Harris and Attorney General Merrick Garland, “will provide training and technical assistance to law enforcement officials, prosecutors, attorneys, judges, clinicians, victim service and social service providers, community organizations, and behavioral health professionals responsible for implementing laws designed to keep guns out of the hands of people who pose a threat to themselves or others.”

The aforementioned laws allow for the confiscation of firearms from individuals who are subjectively deemed a threat to themselves or others without due process. This is a huge violation of the constitutional rights of gun owners. 

Jordan’s concerns regarding the expansive criteria for petitioning extreme risk protection orders and the minimal standard of probable cause required for firearm seizure are paramount. Such laws, if not carefully crafted and executed, erode due process and infringe on individuals’ rights without adequate proof.

Moreover, Jordan’s call for transparency and accountability in the allocation of taxpayer-funded grants and adherence to legal provisions underscores his commitment to oversight and ensuring that government initiatives operate within the bounds of the law.

Jordan’s scrutiny of the Biden administration proves that he understands the reality of these laws and is working to ensure that fundamental liberties are not compromised in the name of “public safety.” By launching an inquiry into the center’s operations and the potential infringement on individual rights, Jordan demonstrates his commitment to protecting civil liberties.

In a time of heightened scrutiny and polarization, Jordan’s scrutiny of the National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center offers a glimpse of hope for a future where constitutional principles remain steadfastly upheld. His steadfast dedication to protecting individual liberties resonates as a timeless reminder of the importance of preserving the freedoms enshrined in the Constitution.

Americans recognize this encroachment on their rights. That’s why a recent poll showed that the President’s approval rating on guns dropped below 30%. 

As the federal government continually encroaches on your rights, it’s important now more than ever to let them know you are watching. Sign this petition to stop marxist gun control and let your lawmakers know you will hold them accountable for taking away your rights.
