    Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration are attempting to nibble away at the Second Amendment from both within and without the U.S., gun rights advocates warn, as Congress seeks to pass a red flag law for military members and the president eyes signing on to a United Nations arms treaty.

    The Justice Department crafted red flag legislation for states to consider and issued a host of proposed changes to the classification of certain guns through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.On Monday, the DOJ published "model legislation and detailed commentary" on "extreme risk protection orders," also known as red flag laws, which allow local law enforcement to seize guns from those deemed a threat to themselves or others prior to an appearance before a judge. It also drew attention to a possible ATF rule change that would alter the definition of a rifle-style pistol "when individuals use accessories...
  • WATCH: Disgusting Oregon Governor Defends Antifa Terrorist Who Killed Trump Supporter Then Vows To ‘Eradicate’ Trump ‘Forces’

    04/07/2021 7:41:51 AM PDT · by A.M. Smith · 38 replies
    During one of the most disgusting interviews in recent memory Oregon Democrat Gov. Kate Brown went on a bizarre and rambling tangent where she supported Antifa rioters who ravaged Portland for several months straight last year. In the interview with Democracy Now, a left-leaning podcast, Brown concentrated the blame on Trump, vowed to use local law enforcement to “eradicate” Trump “forces,” and then seemingly sympathizes with Michael Reinoehl, the ANTIFA terrorist who killed a Trump supporter in downtown Portland who later died in a shootout with the feds. “Shame on Donald Trump,” she said when asked about Trump warning rioters...

    Houston, TX — A Houston sheriff's deputy is under investigation after video shows him pulling a gun on a driver and threatening to kill him. The driver says traffic forced him to stop suddenly while the deputy was driving on a motorcycle behind him. He says that angered the deputy. “I mean, that's not something you do every day is threaten to kill somebody. If I threatened to kill somebody, I’d go to jail,” said George Dickerson, who had a gun pulled on him by a deputy. "If I held a gun to whomever and said I’m going to kill...
  • Trudeau unveils details of ‘assault-style’ gun buyback program, municipal gun ban

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the federal government is launching the long-promised buyback program for what he has described as “assault” or “assault-style” firearms. The buyback program is part of a suite of new gun control measures promised by the federal Liberals in the 2019 election campaign, and follows the announcement of an executive order last May that changed the classification listings to prohibit roughly 1,500 “assault-style” weapons. While terms like “assault-style” and “assault rifle” are not legal classifications in Canada, they are frequently used colloquially by gun control advocates and the government to describe the type of high-capacity, quick-fire...
  • Senior NRO writer: "Jan 7th would have dawned with the heads of Donald Trump and the rioters mounted on pikes"

    Dan McLaughlin ^ | Feb 10 | Dan McLaughlin
    Dan McLaughlin Reminder: in most systems of government in world history, January 7 would have dawned with the heads of Donald Trump and the rioters mounted on pikes around the Capitol as a warning to others for all time. A purely legislative process of accountability is a pretty mild response. And you know, there are principled reasons not to want Georgia to bring a criminal investigation against Trump for the Raffensperger call. But that ground gets harder to defend if there is no legislative forum for accountability.
  • Alec Baldwin tweets about noose for Trump over MLK weekend, Twitter shrugs

    American Thinker ^ | 01/19/2021 | Ethel C. Fenig
    Twitter is apparently very selective about its disapproval of violence, indicating that some violence is better than other violence. If the right person threatens violence against the right person, it is safe on Twitter's platform. The tweeted reaction from Baldwin's followers was mixed. Some mocked or criticized him, while others chuckled, offering additional, grimmer enhancements to his dream.Busy plotting U.S. Constitution First Amendment suppression on a mass scale internationally, Twitter executives apparently were quite pleased that a person of Baldwin's character implemented their vision so readily. The 75 million deplorables who voted for President Donald J. Trump have still yet...

    In yet another inciting tweet from left-wing celebrities, far-left actor Alec Baldwin chose civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday to describe a “dream” he had which included a noose hanging outside of a courthouse during President Donald Trump’s “sedition” trial. Inciting his radical Twitter following, the progressive activist and Saturday Night Live and Boss Baby star took to Twitter on Friday to share his vision which included the president undergoing trial for sedition while a noose — made of recycled protective masks — hangs from a makeshift scaffold.

Republican Sheriff Tony Spurlock has endorsed Democrat Lisa Neal-Graves in the race for Douglas County District 2 commissioner. In a Sept. 21 interview with Colorado Community Media, Spurlock lambasted one of Neal-Graves’ opponents, Republican George Teal, in a series of comments, including an allegation that Teal does not support law enforcement. “I think he is dangerous for Douglas County,” Spurlock said about Teal. In a statement, a spokesperson for Teal’s campaign said the endorsement “does not carry much water in Douglas County.” “Previously, Sheriff Spurlock endorsed Clint Dorris, who was...

    The Oklahoma legislature passed SB 1081 on 15 May, the last day of the legislative session.  It was one of the last bills passed in 2020 before the legislature adjourned. It appears to be the first anti-red flag law passed by any legislature. The legislature passed the bill, had it signed, enrolled, returned to the House, signed, returned to the Senate, and sent to the Governor, all on the same day.A legislature can act quickly, when there is sufficient will to do so. The anti-red flag bill was introduced in 2019, by Senator Nathan Dahm. Dahm wrote an op-ed, published...

    he U.S. Supreme Court has ordered officials in San Jose, California, to explain why they confiscated the legally owned guns of Lori Rodriguez. They still have them. The case was brought by the Second Amendment Foundation on behalf of the woman. The Supreme Court justices have instructed city officials to respond by May 20. "We’re encouraged by this development in the case," said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. "If the city thought they could just ignore this case and make it go away, they’re wrong." "Her firearms were seized seven years ago after her husband was...

    The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals bizarrely ruled that Lori Rodriguez had no right to keep her firearms, though they also noted that there was nothing illegal about her buying a gun either. The court argued that because police believed that her husband (who according to Rodriguez did not have access to her firearms) could pose a threat to public safety, firearms that had been seized from their home when her husband was taken into custody under a mental health hold did not have to be returned to her.

Specifically, he's targetting businesses that continue to remain open despite not being considered "essential" (at least by government standards). “If any non-essential businesses continue to operate in violation of the stay at home order, we’re going to act to enforce the safer at home order and ensure their compliance,” Garcetti said. “You know the old expression about snitches. Well, in this case, snitches get rewards.” “We want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we...

    A bizarre Florida “red flag” case shows the importance of safeguards that protect people’s Second Amendment rights.The allegations against Kevin Morgan were alarming. They described just the sort of circumstances that Florida legislators had in mind when they approved that state's "red flag" law in 2018, three weeks after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Morgan's estranged wife, Joanie, claimed he was depressed, suicidal, and obsessed with the apocalypse, which he thought was imminent. She said he was stockpiling food, gold, guns, and ammunition in anticipation of the end times; that he talked about seeing,...

    Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams has been one of the most vocal critics against red flag laws since Colorado legislators started considering it in 2019. When he learned an inmate in the Weld County Jail used the law to ask a judge to remove weapons from Reams and a unit in the jail, he was frustrated to see it being abused in the ways against which he warned. On Feb. 25, Weld District Chief Judge James Hartmann reviewed and denied a temporary extreme risk protection order filed by an inmate of the jail. Reams learned of the petition later that...
