Does Tennessee "Red Flag" Bill Allow Police to Take Guns Without Due Process?

gavel.png

The right to due process is so important to the enjoyment of American freedom that its genesis dates back to the Magna Carta and was explicitly guaranteed to citizens not once, but twice, in the United States Constitution. The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees that the federal government cannot deprive you of "life, liberty, or property without due process of law" and the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits the individual states from doing the same. Tennessee may do just that with the introduction of House Bill 1049 / Senate Bill 943, which is being called the "Families Know First Act" (let's call it the FKFA for convenience) but is in reality a bill that gives carte blanche to law enforcement to seize a person's firearms and ammunition should that person be deemed an "extreme risk" by law enforcement.
