Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) said that red flag gun laws are “unconstitutional” and don’t address the root problems related to gun violence.

Scalise joined “Fox News Sunday” to explain that red flag laws, which have been implemented in 19 states, are unconstitutional because they violate the Second Amendment when a court unilaterally seizes firearms from an individual deemed a threat.

“They literally come into your house and take away your gun without you even knowing that there was some kind of proceeding where somebody said, ‘Oh, I think that gun might be a threat,’” the lawmaker said. “Maybe somebody thought taking away a gun from a 19-year-old is going to solve a problem. It happens to be unconstitutional,” Scalise told host John Roberts on Sunday.

“Focus on the root cause of the problem,” Scalise continued. “Any immediate visceral reaction of Democrats in Washington is to go after the rights of gun owners in America — law abiding citizens using guns to defend themselves.”

Scalise’s remarks comes as RINO elements of the Republican Party like Sens. John Cornyn (Texas) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) indicated they would join Democrats in support of passing red flag gun laws on the state level.

“It should be done at the state level. But states that have these laws in place, maybe there are some things we can do in Washington to help them with resources to keep things like this from happening,” Graham said.

“Keep them [guns] out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them to begin with because they are mentally unstable. There are a lot of states that have red flag laws. I would support a grant program to help states that choose to go down that road,” he added.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) went even further, indicating he’s “open” to a total ban on AR-15 rifles.

Scalise’s remarks are particularly notable because he was a victim of political violence himself.

The Louisiana minority whip, along with three other Republican lawmakers, was shot by far-left gunman James T. Hodgkinson in 2017 during a Congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia.

The establishment has been eager to capitalize on the Uvalde school shooting last month that left 19 children and two teachers dead by an 18-year-old shooter who was known to law enforcement.
