    Authorities in Massachusetts confiscated a large sum of cash from a man at Logan Airport after he rebooked a missed flight. According to reports, after being questioned by various security and law officers, the man claimed to be carrying wildly different amounts of money. According to a post on the Massachusetts State Police Facebook page, the suspect had booked a flight at Logan Airport this past weekend but missed it. He reportedly booked a second flight on the same day. The man’s specific destination has not been revealed, but authorities have identified it as a “source area for illegal narcotics.”...
  • Santa Clara DA approves "County Gun Team" to remove firearms from "troubling people"

    The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office is forming a new "County Gun Team" focused on removing guns from dangerous offenders who don't have a legal right to own a firearm. The specialized, five-person unit will consist of two crime analysts, two investigators and a dedicated gun violence prosecutor. It will focus on the task of removing guns from dangerous offenders who don't have a legal right to own a firearm. “It used to be a part-time job of the particularly motivated,” Marisa McKeown, a supervising deputy district attorney overseeing the D.A.’s Crime Strategies Unit, said at a Monday news...
  • Florida’s “Red Flag” Law Has Led To Massive Gun Confiscation Numbers

    Florida enacted its red flag law in the spring of 2018 and they didn’t lose any time in putting it to use. And I mean a lot of use. But as this report from the Associated Press indicates, use of the law is not consistent from county to county and there are serious questions remaining as to how fairly it’s being applied. The law, supported by legislators of both parties , has been applied more than 3,500 times since, with the pace accelerating during the last half of 2019. Even so, an Associated Press analysis of the law showed...
  • For First Time, A Colorado Judge Denies Confiscation Request Under Red Flag Law

    For the first time, a judge has denied a request to take away a man’s guns under Colorado’s new red flag law. A Limon woman claimed a man who she had a relationship with threatened her with a gun and filed the request. Since the law took effect, the red flag law has had many gun owners seeing red. At least four requests have been filed since the first of 2020; CBS4 is aware of them being filed in Denver, in Larimer County and this one — in Lincoln County. Many gun owners, like Jak Gruenberg, despise it. “Red flag...
  • What is "Gun Registration"?

    My fertile mind | today | Fightin Kentuckian
    There is confusion about what constitutes “gun registration” I hope to clear up that confusion. A lot of people wrongfully believe that when you go to a gun store to purchase a firearm and you fill out the ATF Form 4473 for the background check, that this constitutes a “gun registration”. This is not a gun registration, this is a background check to verify that you are legally allowed to possess a firearm. Let me explain. On the first page of the 4473 under Section A, you write your personal information and answer questions such as, have you ever been...

    Excerpt: Virginia’s pop-up gun sanctuary movement has turned its attention to fighting the governor’s call for a $4.8 million, 18-officer team to enforce his proposed “assault weapons” ban. Two key groups issued an alert this week to push gun owners to four budget hearings Thursday around the state, asking them to quiz state legislators if they will vote to ban or confiscate weapons.

  • 'The law is the law': Virginia Democrats float prosecution and National Guard for police who fail to enforce gun control legislation

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11 December 2019 | Kerry Picket
    Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill say local police who do not enforce gun control measures likely to pass in Virginia should face prosecution and even threats of the National Guard. After November's Virginia Legislature elections that led to Democrats taking control of both chambers, the gun control legislation proposed by some Democrats moved forward, including universal background checks, an “assault weapons” ban, and a red flag law. Legal firearm owners in the state, however, joined with their sheriffs to form Second Amendment sanctuary counties, which declare the authorities in these municipalities uphold the Second Amendment in the face of any...
  • Gov. Ralph Northam: Register Your AR-15 with Government or Hand It Over

    Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced Monday his “assault weapons” ban will mean AR-15 owners can either register their guns with the government or hand them over. The Virginia Mercury reported Northam spokeswoman Alena Yarmosky used a statement to say, “The governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period.” Yarmosky made clear details on other gun controls will be made known before the start of the 2020 session in which Democrats take charge.

    Destroying the lie from the national socialist left that ‘no one is talking about gun confiscation’.Joy Behar, Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rouke and Representative Eric ‘nukem’ Swawell (D-CA) epitomise the mendacity of the left in demanding gun confiscation while denying that they are demanding gun confiscation. Like many others of the national socialist left, they want to push for their final solution to the liberty problem while still pretending to be ‘liberal’, using all manner of soft sounding synonyms for the taking of the people’s property. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) loves to talk on this subject, but according to him, anyone...

    AMN ^ | 11/26/19 | Ryan Morgan
    Virginia lawmakers are now considering a state law banning the ownership of certain semi-automatic guns deemed “assault firearms” and limiting the magazine capacity of other firearms in the state — and there are no clauses that would allow existing owners to continue possessing them. Virginia state Sen. Richard Saslaw introduced SB16, which would expand the definition of an “assault firearm” to cover many different semi-automatic rifles and pistols. The bill would call for the ban of such firearms, barring people from purchasing, possessing, selling or transferring those weapons. Among the changes in firearm definitions, the bill would expand the term...

    U.S.A. –-( Joy Behar revealed a key piece of the Progressive Project to her listeners on 4 November, 2019. She advised politicians who want to confiscate guns from U.S. citizens to deceive the voters so the politicians could get elected; then confiscate the guns.To the Left, this is nothing controversial. The whole point of Progressivism is the electorate is too stupid and ignorant to govern themselves. They believe the purpose of an elite is to deceive the governed (through manipulation of the information they receive, and controlling the narrative), so as to allow the elite to keep power and govern...

    During an October 24, 2019, town hall in New Hampshire, Democrat presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren suggested it is time to “take weapons of war off our street.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) also voiced support for ammunition controls and background checks. She did not mention that the U.S. has had background checks since 1998.On August 15, 2019, Breitbart News reported Warren’s promise of “executive action in every corner” for gun control, should she be elected.On October 2, 2019, Breitbart News reported Warren’s push for a federal limit on the number of guns an American can purchase. She admitted that limited gun purchases will not solve gun violence by...

    The federal government collected fewer than 1,000 bump stocks during the run-up to a new ban in March, despite estimates that hundreds of thousands of the devices that mimic machine gun fire are in circulation, according to federal data provided to The Washington Times by the Justice Department. As the nation marked the second anniversary Oct. 1 of the Las Vegas massacre, which prodded the Trump administration to ban bump stocks, the numbers offer a cautionary tale on the scope and resources needed to enforce any sort of gun buyback program. The administration cited estimates that 280,000 to 520,000 bump-stock-type...

    Democratic presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke (aka “Beto”) has just presented President Trump and Republicans with the greatest political gift of all – “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47!” Beto shouted those words about his new gun confiscation plan at the Democratic presidential debate hosted by ABC News in Houston, Texas. After decades of experienced Democratic politicians denying it, this young, upstart wannabe president finally gave the true answer – the answer conservatives have always known is the end game of Democrats’ gun control proposals – confiscation. Now the president and Republicans have all the ammunition...

    I see and hear a lot of talk about how a national gun registration and/or confiscation would be the trigger that would spark a second American Revolution, as patriots rise up to resist the jackbooted thugs who are going door-to-door taking away people’s arms. I have bad news for everyone who’s waiting for national registration or a mass confiscation so they can get their armed rebellion on: a national database of gun owners already exists, and a national confiscation effort will never happen. Ever. Instead, you’ll hand over your firearms peacefully. All of them, even the ones you paid cash...

    On 15 March 2019, a political terrorist attacked two mosques located in Christchurch, New Zealand. He killed 51 people and wounded many more. The far-left government of Jacinda Ardem immediately set on a course to ban semi-automatic firearms in New Zealand. Those opposed were shouted down. The government censor worked hard to keep the public from reading the manifesto published by the terrorist. That conveniently prevented people from knowing that gun confiscation was one of his goals. When academic John Lott pointed this out on Twitter, he was banned.Initial reports were few guns were being turned in, partly because...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell of California might have left the presidential race, but his signature issue is still on the primary ballot. After the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton earlier this month, Swalwell’s proposal for a mandatory buyback of all assault-style weapons was embraced by the congressman who represented the Texas border city, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke — giving the idea its highest-profile platform yet. Swalwell has been actively advising presidential candidates to follow his lead, telling them in conversations that “the moms will have your back,” even as critics denounce the plan as gun confiscation that would turn...

    New Zealand attempted controls on firearms ownership from 1845 to 1885. It was not very effective.  From 1885 to 1912, the arms control law was generally a dead letter. From 1912 to 1945 arms control was again attempted, primarily as a means of preventing revolution. From 1945 to 1965, there was again a peaceful enjoyment of firearms with few controls in New Zealand. There were registration controls on the books, but they proved ineffective. Because of increasing crime rates, from the middle 1960's to 1983, the New Zealand police struggled with the ineffective registration system.  The information was obtained...
