Seattle police begin confiscating citizens' firearms

 The Seattle Police Department has begun confiscating firearms belonging to law abiding citizens, using an obscure “red flag law” for the first time in history.  The gun grab began after the officers took a handgun belonging to a man in downtown Seattle on Thursday. reports: Washington state is one of five states that has passed the law, known as the Extreme Risk Protection Order, which gives law enforcement the ability to seize a gun from a person if they believe the person poses a significant danger to themselves or others.

Seattle police say the department received several calls about the 31-year-old man’s escalating behavior.

At one point, staff from a restaurant near the man’s home in the 2200 block of Second Avenue reported to police that the man was harassing them while carrying a holstered firearm.

Police said officers also seized a shotgun from the man in a different incident.

Because of his continued contacts with police, the Crisis Response Squad filed an Extreme Risk Protection Order, which required the man to give up all of his firearms.

The man reportedly failed to turn the firearms over or appear for court, so police then arrested him at his apartment Thursday.

The release states that officers were able to seize a .25 caliber handgun and are in the process of recovering several other firearms the man owned that are currently with a family member.

Foul-Mouthed Vicente Fox: Donald Trump Has
Ruined The American Dream For Non-Americans

Wasn’t that the point of his election? Foul-mouthed former Mexican President Vicente Fox attacked President Trump in a recent Newsweek op-ed.

Fox wrote that Trump has “ended the American dream for hundreds of thousands of Americans and non-Americans.”

The globalists and American left believe US presidents should put the well-being of foreigners above the well-being of American citizens.

Donald Trump rejects this belief.

The Hill reported:

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox slammed President Trump in a new op-ed Monday, claiming that Trump has killed the American dream.

“It has been more than a year since Donald Trump was elected, and since then he has tweeted more policies and complaints than any other political leader,” Fox wrote in an op-ed for Newsweek. “He has put international relations at risk and ended the American dream for hundreds of thousands of Americans and non-Americans. Is there anything he hasn’t done?”

The frequent Trump critic blasted the president for his threats on Twitter, including his recent suggestion that immigration enforcement from Mexico could become a condition in the ongoing North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations.

“Today we continue renegotiating the treaty because of good old Donald’s whims, we keep listening to him whining, and reading his conditions on Twitter; the most recent one is that the Dreamers depend on the construction of the f—ing wall,” Fox wrote.
