Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee are pushing through HR1236, the Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019, that will impose red flag gun laws across the nation. The gun control legislation is being heralded by most on the left and some on the right who see it as a way of stopping mass shootings before they happen.
But conservatives are pushing back against the law as subversion of gun rights, property rights, and due process rights. One of those leading the charge to stop this bill from making it through the House is Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH). In a passionate speech within the committee, Jordan lambasted his colleagues for betraying their oath to the Constitution and for upending what the House Judiciary Committee was intended to do in protecting the Bill of Rights.
“What other constitutional right can you lose without doing anything wrong and without your knowledge, and have to petition the court to get it back?” Jordan asked.
Red flag gun laws such as HR1236 would allow various people to petition the court to have law enforcement remove firearms from people they believe to be a threat to themselves or others. It has gained in popularity following several mass shootings this summer, though none of them seem to have been preventable if such laws were in place. As Jordan points out, the language of the bill makes it to where anyone who has lived with the accused in the last year, from an ex-girlfriend to a disgruntled roommate, can have the court remove firearms without the victim even knowing the process is happening.
In other words, accusers get the power to paint someone as guilty without due process, at which point they must then prove to the court they’re innocent. This isn’t how America is supposed to work.
Law abiding citizens can be targeted for confiscation without doing anything wrong under red flag gun laws. This is unconstitutional, unAmerican, and moves us closer to the authoritarian state the left wants for all of us.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
