On September 29th, 2021, Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-02) joined a letter to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees, demanding the full removal of a “red flag” provision in H.R. 4350, the House National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), during the conference committee process.
“I am strongly opposed to “red flag laws,” which are unconstitutional laws that violate the due-process rights of gun owners. I am opposed to the inclusion of these provisions in the NDAA and it is imperative that we remove them from the NDAA before the House votes on this legislation again,” said Miller-Meeks. “I voted for the NDAA with the understanding that any possible “red flag” provisions will be removed from the final version of the bill. If they are not removed, I will not vote for the bill when it returns to the House for final passage. I fully expect that the red flag provisions will be eliminated in the final version of the NDAA, and I look forward to voting on a final version of the bill that funds our military and protects the due-process rights of our service members.”
