Red Flag Laws

The Deeper Meaning


By Dr. Ken Matto


How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!  (2 Samuel 1:27)


Just recently there two mass shootings and right on the heels of the Dayton and El Paso shootings President Trump declared that he was going to seek Congress to produce legislation which will make Red Flag laws the law of the land in contrast to his  promises to defend the Second Amendment rights of the people of this nation.  In my own state of New Jersey, Red Flag Laws go into effect on September 1, 2019.  What are Red Flag Laws?


“In the United States, a red flag law is a gun control law that permits police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves. A judge makes the determination to issue the order based on statements and actions made by the gun owner in question. Refusal to comply with the order is punishable as a criminal offense. After a set time, the guns are returned to the person from whom they were seized unless another court hearing extends the period of confiscation.” – Wikipedia


Here is my interpretive statement on the above.  If a family member knows you believe in “conspiracy theories” that means they have the right to have your guns removed by the police.  If a disgruntled ex-husband or ex-wife hates their former spouse, they can call the police and claim he or she is unstable and they will come and confiscate the guns.  Any person will have the ability to accuse another person of being unstable or a threat which means their guns will be confiscated until a judge declares the person sane or competent and then they will be returned, maybe after many years.  This means that while the police are removing guns from law abiding citizens, the criminals will still maintain possession of their firearms and the unarmed public will continue to be at the mercy of these lawbreakers.


The collective stupidity of Congress and many state legislatures are at an all-time high.  Do they honestly believe that gangs and criminals will actually be restrained by these Red Flag Laws?  The only thing that will is cause an increase in crime especially murder since honest people will not be able to defend themselves.  Since the United States was founded sinister forces were trying to destroy it.  No one could attack the USA and win a war against us because we were too powerful.  It was during World War II when Admiral Yamamoto of Japan stated that he would never consider invading the USA because every citizen had a gun.  His exact quote was “You cannot invade the mainland United States.  There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.”  What does that tell you?  Nathan Rothschild ordered the war of 1812 with England and stated “Either the application for the renewal of the charter is granted, [national bank] or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.”  He then 'instructed' the British to "Teach these impudent Americans a lesson. Bring them back to Colonial status."


So from the time our country was founded it was always under attack not by military forces which were superior to ours but by sinister forces beyond the flesh of humans.

At the present time the United States is imploding and eventually will become a third world nation.


“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”  ― Abraham Lincoln


Abraham Lincoln saw it and so did Admiral Yamamoto.  They knew America could not be taken from the outside so it had to be done from the inside.  At this writing, there are many young Americans who are pushing for Socialism and Communism which means a seed of destruction is germinating within the borders of the America that is continuing to grow.  The key word which is driving this movement is “free.”  Dimwitted politicians are promising to give everything for free to people but never telling us who will pay for all the free stuff.  They want to re-distribute everyone’s money but they themselves will never relinquish a penny of their own wealth.  If America falls to communism or socialism, then this entire world will become one big global slave plantation under the rule of the megalomaniac international banking elite who will stop at nothing to subjugate every human being on earth to bow the knee to them.


Now I want to get to the heart of this article.  I mentioned sinister forces beyond human flesh and the reason I mention that is America, since its founding, has become a bastion of Christian truth and the base of operations for world missions.  Satan has engineered many plans to destroy America because he wants to thwart the sending forth of the gospel all over the world.  When the true gospel is preached, his territory is invaded especially in countries which are ruled by certain religions such as Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Roman Catholicism and others.  The true gospel invades his realm of false teachings keeping people in bondage to false religions.


On the surface Red Flag Laws are aimed at the freedom of the people in the USA and the abandonment of the Second Amendment, the deeper purpose of them is for our country to be attacked so it may be defeated and once America is defeated, that will be the end of Christianity in America and world missions.  This is the aim of Satan and his minions in congress and state legislatures.  They are partaking of their own destruction without realizing future ramifications.  Their own children and grandchildren will be living in a slave state and they are not concerned about it.  Many Christians are also in favor of Red Flag Laws and have never even considered the future consequences of such laws.  Once America falls to these forces, you can kiss freedom and your church good bye.  Your Bibles will be confiscated and burned.  Christian activity will be suppressed like it was in the Old Soviet Union and like it is in China today making Christianity an outlaw religion where Christians will be sent to re-education camps and they will either be forced to recant or they will be killed.  This is the ultimate goal of Satan to stop Christianity and world missions in its tracks and many Christians are helping him reach his goal by simply supporting the Red Flag Laws.


Christians need to stop worrying about Israel and start looking at what is happening in our own country.  Our freedoms are being taken away every day and all most Christians concern themselves with is Israel.  Dear Christian, it is time to start thinking seriously about what is happening in our country.  Fox News is not a divinely inspired entity. They are only allowed to go so far in their news and they too must omit many truths or sinister forces will be exposed.  Satan is out to destroy this country and with it Christianity and the churches, even though most churches are in lockstep with the official government line, they still pose a threat because of their visibility.  As America keeps throwing God out of everything, eventually he will throw us out completely.  The Democrats have removed “so help me God” from the oath of office.  A woman named Kelli Dunaway who was just elected as a councilwoman for St. Louis County, Missouri, took her oath of office on a Dr. Seuss book and not the Bible.  As America departs from God, God will depart from us.  It is guaranteed!  As with every Empire in history such as Rome, Greece, Medes-Persians, Assyrians, or Babylonians the USA is trying to be the main empire in this present world and God will destroy it as fast as he created it.  We are not exempt from the judging hand of God. 


Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.  (Ezekiel 1:1)


Don’t think because you are a Christian that you will escape because Ezekiel was a believer and he too was taken to Babylon and was among the captives.  So don’t look for this mythical pre-trib rapture as a way out because the Bible explicitly states that all Christians will be here until the last day of history. 


And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.  (John 6:40)   [Also in John 6:39; 44; 54; 11:24; 12:48]
