These Red Flag laws violate a citizens I, II, IV, V, VI, VIII and XIV Amendment rights. It was modified with a Substitute 1 clause that allows for tougher penalties on someone who files a “false” claim, however, remember only law abiding citizens follow laws. This does not make the law more Constitutional as portrayed in the media as it still does not address the law of due process or innocence until proven guilty.
