Red flag laws are an attack on freedom of speech as well as due process and gun rights.
A Washington man’s guns have been confiscated under red flag laws after posting memes on social media about the controversial movie “Joker.”
Authorities have confirmed that three guns were removed from a Redmond, WA man under an “extreme protection order” based on his social media activity. One offending Twitter post, based off of a popular meme, pictured the man holding two AK-47 rifles with the caption: “One ticket for joker please.”
They also claim that he posted offensive comments toward women back in 2017 to justify the use of red flag laws, showing that anything will be used to justify gun confiscation. The man will have a court appearance on Oct. 15 where he will have to grovel before a judge in order to get his guns back.
“Joker” debuted on Oct. 4 amidst a nation-wide fervor pushed by the fake news media that the movie would result in mass shootings. The military even bought into the hysteria, warning their personnel about the so-called threat:

Posts on social media have made reference to involuntary celibate (“incel”) extremists replicating the 2012 theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, at screenings of the Joker movie at nationwide theaters. This presents a potential risk to DOD personnel and family members, though there are no known specific credible threats to the opening of the Joker on 4 October.
Incels are individuals who express frustration from perceived disadvantages to starting intimate relationships. Incel extremists idolize violent individuals like the Aurora movie theater shooter. They also idolize the Joker character, the violent clown from the Batman series, admiring his depiction as a man who must pretend to be happy, but eventually fights back against his bullies.
When entering theaters, identify two escape routes, remain aware of your surroundings, and remember the phrase “run, hide, fight.” Run if you can. If you’re stuck, hide (also referred to as “sheltering in place”), and stay quiet. If a shooter finds you, fight with whatever you can.

The controversy only helped “Joker” rake in the dough at the box office, where it smashed many records with a cume of $94 million over its first three days in theatres:
‘Joker’ is set to smash box office records for a debut of a ‘villain’s’ comic book movie, in spite of an aggressive campaign against the movie by mainstream media outlets.
The film, directed by Todd Philips and starring Joaquin Phoenix, raked in $40 million on its opening night and $94 million within its first three days in theaters.
The film’s impressive debut flies in the face of assertions by mainstream media pundits objecting to its content…
Sources within the film industry project that ‘Joker’ will net up to $194 million during its worldwide opening, approaching the previous record for a comic book villain’s movie, currently held by ‘Venom.’ It ranges from possible to likely that ‘Joker’ will break the existing record over the length of its theater distribution.
In a development previously seen with social-justice themed movies beloved by elite media critics and disliked by everyday audiences, ‘Joker’ is highly rated by casual moviegoers, while being disliked by ‘professional’ movie critics.
Even though the paranoid fears over the film did not materialize, that did not stop law enforcement and robed lawyers on the bench from using “Joker” as an excuse to eviscerate a man’s 2nd Amendment rights using red flag laws.
