Trey Gowdy is one of Fox News Channel’s star hosts.
But Gowdy recently left viewers scratching their heads.
That’s because Trey Gowdy went on TV and crossed one unthinkable line.
On Sunday night Gowdy addressed the gun grab Joe Biden signed into law following the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas.
The gun grab included funding for red flag confiscation laws.
Red flag confiscation laws allow gun grabbers to win court orders allowing the government to enter the homes of Americans and confiscate their firearms.
Red flag confiscation laws do not require any accusation of a crime.
Instead, gun grabbers can initiate rigged hearings with no defense attorney and no ability to confront accusers.
Red flag confiscation laws violate Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms, Fifth Amendment rights to prevent the seizure of property without due process of law and Sixth Amendment rights to confront your accuser.
Gowdy addressed the criticism that red flag confiscation laws violate due process.
“In the aftermath of murdered schoolchildren in Texas, Congress passed legislation designed in part to explore red flag laws. There was opposition with critics saying the law violates due process, which begs the question, what does that term mean?” Gowdy stated.
Gowdy then explained to his audience that due process has a specific meaning but that due process supposedly took a on different standard when lives were at stake.
“Due process is not a math equation. It’s not a number or a rigid paradigm. It is a legal standard which ebbs and flows depending on what is at stake. Our Constitution makes it clear, twice in fact, no person can be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process. That also means a person can be deprived of life, liberty and property if due process is given. Due process applies to being passed over for a promotion at work. But there is a big difference in what that due process looks like. When it comes to your life, due process is rigorous as you would expect,” Gowdy continued.
Gowdy claimed it was okay to violate the Constitution and accuse gun owners of ‘pre-crime’’ on the basis that fundamental rights such as due process get tossed out the window and no longer count because liberals falsely claim gun control stops mass shootings.
“Due process is different depending on what government is trying to do. The question then becomes what should due process look like if a family member or law enforcement officer credibly believes someone is a threat to themselves or others? Would we rather due process come before the shooting in front of a judge, or would we rather due process come after a mass shooting in a death penalty trial for the murder of schoolchildren?” Gowdy concluded.
Gowdy won election in 2010 during the Tea Party wave running as a constitutional conservative.
But at least in this case, Gowdy abandoned those principles by defending the blatantly unconstitutional red flag confiscation laws.
