Democrats Vow to Confiscate Guns from Certain US Troops

Fact checked
Democrats now want to confiscate guns from US troops

House Democrats have vowed to pass legislation that would allow police officers to confiscate guns from active duty troops.

Yes, really.

According to a report from, the legislation will permit civilian police to take the action against any military service members if they are accused of ‘domestic violence.’ reports: California Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier, who chairs the House Armed Services Committee’s subcommittee dedicated to personnel said “Domestic violence is a forgotten crisis in the military, and that’s why I offered an NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act] amendment to ensure that service members have access to military court protective orders that are as strong and enforceable as protective orders issued by civilian courts.”

The report explains that the law as it currently stands means that civilian law enforcement does not enforce military court orders, and commanders have no authority to seize guns from troops if they are kept off base.

The Democrat legislation would “create a system for military courts to issue protective orders,” the report notes, adding that “Military court protective orders would be fully recognized by state and local law enforcement under the proposed law.”

Critics of the proposal point out that it is similar to so called ‘red flag’ gun confiscation laws that allow police or family members to petition a court to remove firearms from anyone deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.

Republicans are opposing the move, calling on the leaders of the House and Senate armed services committees to remove the provision from the NDAA, arguing that it “would violate the Second Amendment rights of our nation’s brave service members by allowing military judges and magistrates to issue military court gun confiscation orders.”

Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas further urged that “Congress should not allow servicemen who are faced with allegations to have their firearms taken away first, and face due process later.”

Last year an almost identical provision in the House version of the NDAA was removed as it progressed to the Senate, which at the time was controlled by Republicans.


  1. WTF do you want a VA full of undeprogrammed KILroyS shooting joe Q full of holes again like after nammy? in the streets and citys.Troops get programmed to go gung ho but not many get deprogrammed after service and a violent inactive programmed killer not deprogrammed is a time bomb waiting to go off on someone or something.Two bullets in the brain and many other bullets holes from delayed stress nammys returned home in the 1960`s.I was a kid at seven and eight years old getting shot by delayed stress ex-troops.I know who they all were and it was`nt thier faults.they were brainwashed and never deprogrammed

  2. and I was a army kid at 17 anyway all gung ho myself but i deprogrammed myself and at my age having a fire arm would`nt prolong my life anyway.I was the hidden child of howard hughes and jean peters with a price on my head by ORG crime you have to be fit for duty and being a wife beater an`t being fit for nothing but jail which ex/kilroYs never see

  3. According to the numbers the ‘civilian police’ have a higher rate of D.V.
    Sooooooo… what’s this really about?

  4. Know that Epstein guilty zioTrumpy P0S is a traitor and a Fake PoS CONservative who is anti-gun. Passed bump stock ban, red flag laws and told Diane Fineswine to take guns first and pass laws later same swamp

    • Bump stocks suck and anyone with a file can convert to fully auto but why> you would only heat up and jam.If you were say a full MERC and needed those types of weapons i would change jobs as you would`nt live long anyway

      • My point was P0S Epstein guilty zioTrumpy is an anti gun liberal. A fake CONservative. A TRAITOR who freed two Israeli spies

  5. The Police ‘participants’ should keep in mind that ‘What goes around … Comes around.’ Imagine a Police Officer with no gun to protect himself.

  6. Did you know the police are not constitutionally legal and actually have no authority against the people? They are owned by the courts, not the people.

    The Sheriff is and does!
