    If the Biden/Harris regime takes over, they have repeatedly said they will go after the 2nd Amendment. Will they send law enforcement to people's home to confiscate guns, perhaps, will they directly ban so called "assault weapons", perhaps, but this video explains how I think the 2nd Amendment will be attacked.. Remember Sandy Hook and mentally deranged person using a Bushmaster AR-15 manufactured by Remington killed numerous children ?? A lawsuit was filed by the victims blaming Remington, that lawsuit was allowed to proceed against Remington and ultimately help cause their bankruptcy... Now this case, Cabela's is getting sued and...
  • In Act of Heresy, N.R.A.’s Former No. 2 Calls for Gun Control

    NYT ^ | 09 03 2020 | Danny Hakim and Maggie Haberman
    The National Rifle Association’s former second-in-command is breaking with the group’s orthodoxy and calling for universal background checks and so-called red flag laws in a new book assailing the organization as more focused on money and internal intrigue than the Second Amendment, while thwarting constructive dialogue on gun violence. The former executive, Joshua L. Powell, who was fired by the N.R.A. in January, reinforces the kind of criticism made of the organization by gun control groups and state regulators, but it is the first critical look at its recent history by such a high-ranking insider. He describes the N.R.A.’s longtime...

    A second weapon from Mark and Patricia McCloskey was surrendered to authorities Saturday Twelve Republican members of Congress have written to U.S. Attorney General William Barr, arguing in defense of the Second Amendment rights of a Missouri couple whose rifle and handgun are now in the possession of local authorities. Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who made national headlines in late June when they took up arms to defend their home from protesters who entered their St. Louis neighborhood, had their rifle seized Friday when local police executed a search warrant. Then on Saturday, a lawyer -- who represented the couple...

    Joe Biden lost it again on the campaign trail at an auto plant being built in Detroit, and in a now familiar script. His blowup had all his characteristic theatrics of prior such encounters. There were the shouting at blue-collar workers, the he-man, corn-pop-like braggadocio, the ad hominem expletives (“you’re full of s***!”), the invasion of one’s personal space with his habitual wagging finger, the personal invective (“horse’s a**”), and, of course, being wrong on the issues and accusations. It certainly is reasonable to assume that, given Biden’s promise to put Beto O’Rourke (“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your...

    Virginia's state senate has passed a bill that would allow law enforcement officers to confiscate guns from or prevent the purchase of firearms by people deemed to be threats to themselves or others, just days after a massive gun rights rally swarmed the state capitol. The bill passed the chamber in a narrow 21-19 vote and will next move to the state Housem of Delegates. Jake Rubenstein, a spokesman for Virginia House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn, told CNN the House would "deliver" on a demand from voters for gun control measures. "Virginians spoke loud and clear on Election Day demanding common...

    A gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia attracted thousands on Monday and one Western New Yorker stood out among the rest. Brandon Lewis was a protester at the rally who is getting a lot of attention from national media outlets because of the gun he was carrying. In many photos Lewis is pictured carrying a Barrett M82A1 rifle, which is a semi-automatic rifle that is used by the U.S. military. Lewis told 2 On Your Side that the rifle was meant to send a message. "The citizens are the government and we are in control not the other way around,"...

    In the past week, in the aftermath of the shooting attack that killed three U.S. Navy sailors on a military base in Pensacola, Florida, Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends show has given substantial attention to the problem of most troops not being allowed to carry weapons on base. In several segments this week, the show highlighted the views of several Navy troops who are speaking out on the issue. By contrast, CNN's New Day show ran a four-minute piece touting the views of Houston police chief Art Acevedo as he ranted against several prominent Republican Senators over the issue...

    Academia, the MSM and the Billionaires' Non-Profit Boards, need to own up if they are influenced by Cultural Marxism of the Frankfurt School variety. (Take down the West by "making it stink.") Any discussion of their viewpoints about 2nd Amendment, needs to account for whether or not they support the following goal: * An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime. If you are against guns, then you need to declare where you rank the rights of crime victims. Why would they want to disregard the average crime victim? As part of a plan to destabilize the middle-class...

    We all know that if something looks too good to be true, it is. Reasonable Americans can agree that no one who shouldn't have a gun should have one. Red flag laws, though, are peaceful slavery disguised as bipartisan utopianism, with even President Trump publicly supporting them. Bipartisanship is often sold as doing what's right, but warm and fuzzy bipartisan agreements don't necessarily mean something good for the American people. Doing what's constitutional is what's right and correct, irrespective of whether it's bipartisan. It's almost the equivalent of legislating based on polls. In my home state of Florida, both our...

    We saw the presumption of innocence under assault during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and it is once again under assault with the consideration of so-called “red flag” laws after the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. These laws would allow authorities to disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens on the basis that it has been somehow determined that they are an unstable threat to themselves and to society. They might commit a crime. This determination can be made based on reports from vengeful former spouses, ex-girlfriends and boyfriends, former co-workers, hostile neighbors, just about anybody with...

    President Trump on Thursday told supporters in New Hampshire that he would "always uphold the Second Amendment" and suggested that the construction of new mental health facilities would help curb gun violence. The president lamented the lack of mental health institutions as he spoke about the need to keep guns away from people with mental illnesses. The comments come as the White House and Congress examine new gun laws in the wake of recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas. "It's not the gun that pulls the trigger. It's the person that pulls the trigger," Trump said,...

    Their broadest goal is to replace the family with government. Their intermediate goal is to destabilized society by vilifying victims and hero-izing criminals. (Franfurt School Agenda, Item 8 of 11: An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime.) Their closest goal, to disarm the public despite overwhelming determination to keep their guns, actually has a chance of succeeding, but only in the short run. (Extend the invasive technology of the Tom Cruise "Minority Report" to guns, you have a Justice Department nationalizing large urban Police Departments & giving them unlimited military-ordnance, equipping them with truck-mounted wall-scanning radar, so...

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- "Hamilton" star and writer Lin-Manuel Miranda on Monday praised a delegation of congressional Democrats for traveling to Puerto Rico, despite criticism over their trip's timing during a partial government shutdown. "I'm very proud to work with the Latino Victory Fund because you're here to work, despite what anyone might claim," said Miranda during a speech at the progressive organization's summit. "I know you all saw the blue tarps when your plane landed in Puerto Rico," Miranda told the members of Congress in the audience, referring to temporary roof coverings provided by the Federal Emergency Management...

    President Obama and President Trump were both right, Obama when he told us elections have consequences and Trump in his 2018 stump speech that a consequence of Democrat victories would be renewed attacks on the Second Amendment. New Jersey’s ban on high capacity magazines has been upheld by a federal court, opening the door to door knock gun confiscation and making off-duty police officers subject to criminal prosecution. The inmates are officially running the asylum. This law is one of those “sensible restrictions” on gun ownership that liberals like to talk about but that criminals will ignore as the judge...

    *** Here’s a look at the state of gun regulations in California: Recent Legislation • Raised the age for buying rifles and shotguns from 18 to 21. • Imposed lifetime bans on gun ownership for those convicted of domestic violence or involuntarily hospitalized for mental illness twice in a year. • Strengthened a law prohibiting multiburst trigger devices, including bump stocks. • Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed two other measures. One would have prohibited the purchase of more than one long gun a month. The other would have allowed teachers and employers to petition the courts to have guns confiscated from...

    Dueling pistols are strange, beautiful and ironic. Gadgets to shoot each other in the face, crafted with the delicacy and decorative extravagance of expensive jewelry.They appeared in the 18th C, as faster firing versions of older, flintlock guns replaced swords. Their use dwindled in the 19th C, while duels were still fought in the Western US states. Here the less rich would engage in gouging, similarly prearranged combat, with the aim of plucking out the opponent’s eyes. Dueling pistols were designed for the upper classes, for the preservation of honor. They were used illegally by generals and poets (Pushkin was...

    Red Simple LAURENCE IS FOLLOWED TODAY by the son of Chromatius, prefect of Rome, Tiburtius, who also suffered upon burning coals for the confession of his faith. Though forty years intervened between the two martyrdoms, it was the same Holy Spirit that animated these witnesses of Christ and suggested to them the same answer to their executioners. Tiburtius, walking upon the fire, cried out: “Learn that the God of the Christians is the only God, for these hot coals seem flowers to me.” Equally near to the great Archdeacon stands an illustrious virgin, so bright herself as not to...
