Trey Gowdy left Fox News viewers stunned with one unthinkable comment

Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy is part of a new lineup at Fox News.

But the audience on Sunday night did not get what they bargained for.

And Trey Gowdy left Fox News viewers stunned with one unthinkable comment.

During his monologue, Gowdy addressed the recent gun grab shepherded through Congress by anti-gun RINO John Cornyn (R-TX) and signed into law by Joe Biden.

The centerpiece of the attack on Second Amendment rights included money for states to adopt red flag confiscation laws.

These dangerous power grabs allow judges to order the government to kick doors down and confiscate guns from American citizens before they commit a crime.

Critics slammed red flag confiscation laws as an assault on due process.

But Gowdy defended red flag confiscation laws, falsely claiming politicians and pundits who opposed gun control did not know what due process meant.

“In the aftermath of murdered schoolchildren in Texas, Congress passed legislation designed in part to explore red flag laws. There was opposition with critics saying the law violates due process, which begs the question, what does that term mean?” Gowdy began.

Gowdy did correctly state that due process has a very specific definition, but then he claimed the Constitution allowed the federal government to seize firearms without accusing or convicting gun owners of committing a crime.

“Due process is not a math equation. It’s not a number or a rigid paradigm. It is a legal standard which ebbs and flows depending on what is at stake. Our Constitution makes it clear, twice in fact, no person can be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process. That also means a person can be deprived of life, liberty, and property if due process is given. Due process applies to being passed over for a promotion at work. But there is a big difference in what that due process looks like. When it comes to your life, due process is rigorous as you would expect,” Gowdy added.

Gowdy concluded by claiming that violating the Constitution to confiscate firearms was an acceptable method of preventing school shootings.

“Due process is different depending on what the government is trying to do. The question then becomes what should due process look like if a family member or law enforcement officer credibly believes someone is a threat to themselves or others? Would we rather due process come before the shooting in front of a judge, or would we rather due process come after a mass shooting in a death penalty trial for the murder of schoolchildren?” Gowdy declared.
