    “The role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the news media. The broadcast networks and cable news outlets have vowed to be prudent.” – New York Times 11/3/2020 The New York Times‘ statement was not accidental, but pre-planned. We are in the middle of a coup d’etat by election-stealing against both President Trump and our republic, and the “mainstream media” is very much in on the plot. A first order of business before you read on: the intent of this piece is NOT to imply that it’s over, and that the evildoers will...

    Joe Biden’s plan to tax gun owners for the right to keep and bear arms could reach as high as $34 billion, according to an analysis by the Washington Free Beacon.On the campaign trail, Biden made several promises relating to guns that he is going to have a hard time getting through Congress. Assigning liability for gun deaths to manufacturers is only the tip of the iceberg. Biden’s far-reaching program would drive online gun retailers out of business, which would include retailers selling gun supplies. It would force owners of AR-15s and other similar weapons to either sell them or...

    American gun owners could face tens of billions of dollars in new taxes to keep the guns they already own under Democrat Joe Biden's gun ban and tax plan. At least 20 million rifles and 150 million ammunition magazines would be caught up in the sales ban and registration scheme Biden touted on the campaign trail, according to a National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) report. The new taxes would cost Americans more than $34 billion, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. NSSF told the Washington Free Beacon the sheer number of affected guns and magazines could pose a significant...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden doubled down on his calls to ban “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines and to institute other gun controls on the final Sunday of his 2020 presidential campaign. Biden’s campaign wrote on his officialvTwitter account: “As president, I’ll ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, implement universal background checks, and enact other common-sense reforms to end our gun violence epidemic.” Breitbart News reported that Biden’s proposals not only contain a ban on the future manufacture of AR-15s and other firearms the Democrats label “assault weapons” but also a provision that could require every AR-15 rifle to...
  • NRA: Dems are using pandemic to eliminate semiautomatic guns (New plan by congressman 'would leave law-abiding Americans defenseless')

    The National Rifle Association has issued an alert that Democrats are using the worldwide coronavirus pandemic to push for more gun control. A bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., "would leave law-abiding Americans defenseless," the organization charged. "At a time when our nation struggles, everyone's first and foremost concern is the safety of themselves and their loved ones. However, this doesn't stop Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) from pushing a massive gun grab bill in the U.S. House of Representatives," the group said. The bill, H.R. 5717, the Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act, is nothing new, the...
  • Dozens Line Up To Speak Out On Ammunition Excise Tax

    Thursday, a public hearing was held at the Capitol over a proposal to tax ammunition by an additional 35%. Nearly 50 people signed up to testify on this issue, and many spoke out against the proposal. “I feel this just goes too far. They just keep nibbling and taking away, taking away,” said Skip Roberts of Higganum. Recently retired, Roberts said he’s on a fixed income. He owns a gun to keep his family safe and estimates a day of practice at the range will cost him and his wife close to $100 more if the ammunition excise tax is...

    Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring issued an advisory opinion stating that the resolutions that more than 100 localities across the commonwealth have passed declaring themselves "Second Amendment Sanctuaries" have "no legal effect." Herring, a Democrat, said Friday the localities and local constitutional officers “cannot nullify state laws” and must follow the gun laws passed by the General Assembly. "Neither local governments nor local constitutional officers have the authority to declare state statutes unconstitutional or decline to follow them on that basis," Herring wrote in the opinion. Spooked by Democrats taking control of the General Assembly and promising to pass gun...

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.

    It’s not often an old joke evolves into a catchphrase for mass violence, but that’s just what’s happened this past year when a variety of extremist and fringe movements and subcultures adopted the word “boogaloo” as shorthand for a future civil war. From militia groups to white supremacists, extremists on a range of online platforms talk about—and sometimes even anticipate—the “boogaloo.” The rise of “boogaloo,” and its casual acceptance of future mass violence, is disturbing. Among some extremists, it may even signify an increased willingness to engage in violence. pepe boogaloo “Boogaloo” has its roots in decades of jokes about...

    When They Come For You: How Police and Government are Trampling Our Liberties and How To Take Them Back It goes without saying that our government is responsible for a serious erosion of our Constitutional rights in recent years. Maybe it’s more accurate to say it has often gone without saying. Some of those most outspoken, historically, on these issues remain largely silent– or even take the other side in today’s Alice in Wonderland dynamic. Author and journalist David Kirby stands up where too many stay seated with his new expose: “When They Come For You: How Police and Government...

    Far-left Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam announced this week that he will aggressively work to implement extreme anti-gun laws in the state now that Democrats control the state, including confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens. During a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Northam “mentioned universal background checks, banning the sale of [semi-automatic firearms] and high-capacity magazines, restoring the law that limits purchases to one gun a month, and a red flag law that would empower a court to temporarily remove a gun from a person deemed to be a risk to himself or others,” The Washington Post reported. “We will at least...

    Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden renewed his push for an “assault weapons” ban via a Sunday night tweet. Biden wrote: “The deadliest mass shootings all have one thing in common: assault weapons. It’s past time we get these weapons of war off our streets. I’ve banned them before, and I’ll ban them again in the White House.” Although Biden equates commonly owned semiautomatic rifles with “weapons of war,” there really is no comparison between the two.

    Each time a mass shooting strikes one of our communities we grieve. We gather our loved ones. We reach for answers and clamor for action. Each time, for a moment, it feels like this time will be different. But then the news cycle rolls on. And we push down the gut-churning knowledge that it will be only a matter of time before it happens again. Between El Paso and Dayton only about 13 hours elapsed. Republican leaders try to prevent action and parrot N.R.A. messaging — as Donald Trump did last week when he said, “Mental illness and hatred pulls...

    WASHINGTON — Senate Judiciary Committee chair Lindsey Graham told BuzzFeed News he will start crafting legislation next week to expand police powers to preemptively seize firearms from people believed to be a danger to themselves or others. Graham is angling to get bipartisan support for his bill, and has been in discussions with Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal. Neither would outline specifics Thursday beyond saying it will be an original piece of legislation. Graham said work on hammering out the contents of the bill will begin next week.

    “Molon Labe” is reportedly the response given to the Persian king Xerxes by the Spartan king Leonidas when Xerxes demanded that the Greek force lay down their weapons. It is generally translated as, “Come and get them.” There are consequences to everything we do in life. Regardless of whether the action is that of an individual or a group, ‘something’ will happen. Recent unsubtle threats by Democrats (specifically Speaker Nancy Pelosi) have woke many from silence. States actively legislating to confiscate firearms should startle anyone with even a passing familiarity with history. That the Speaker of the House threatened to...
