Although the 2nd Amendment sanctuary movement did not begin in the state of Virginia, the incredible grassroots resistance to Governor Blackface Northam’s draconian gun control attempts has caused the movement to spread like wildfire across the country.
Several counties in Kentucky are pushing resolutions to create 2nd Amendment sanctuaries within their jurisdictions. Their efforts are being buoyed by newly-elected Democrat Governor Andy Beshear’s public support of unconstitutional red flag laws.
“We don’t feel like that law-abiding citizens should be infringed upon. They have this right as guaranteed by the Constitution of this country,” said Judge-Executive Dan Mosley of Harlan County, where a pro-2nd Amendment resolution was passed unanimously.
The movement is also building in North Carolina. One county was forced to move their meeting about the issue to a bigger venue just to accommodate all of the people who showed up to support the sanctuary resolution.
“A 2nd Amendment sanctuary refers to a county’s commitment not to impede a citizen’s rights as granted to them by the constitution and the Bill of Rights that many have fought and died for,” said Donnie Holden, who is leading the charge in Macon County. The counties of McDowell and Davidson have already passed resolutions.
In Michigan, the movement has grown exponentially as evidenced by the “Michigan for 2A Sanctuary Counties” Facebook group. In about three weeks, the group has gained 80,000 members, and there is a resolution drive in virtually every county throughout the state. The movement has gained support from state legislators and candidates running for Congress.
“Every county is a Second Amendment sanctuary county. The county sheriff has the right to defend and uphold the constitution of the state of Michigan and Article 1, Section 6 says everybody has the right to bear arms,” state representative Beau LaFave said.
“The Second Amendment is still extremely popular, and the Democrats are in for a real rude awakening if they think they’re going to weaken it,” said congressional candidate Thomas Norton, who is hoping to unseat Justin Amash in the 3rd district.
Norton will be a keynote speaker at a large rally outside of the Michigan state Capitol on Monday, Jan. 20. Patriots in Michigan will be issuing a show of solidarity with the people of Virginia, who are rallying in the midst of unprecedented pushback from the governor.
“On January 20th, we will be a keynote speaker at the Michigan solidarity event in Lansing, supporting our fellow American patriots and their fight to protect the 2nd Amendment in Virginia,” Norton told Big League Politics.
The petty tyrant Gov. Coonman may have done a favor to American patriots with his futile attempted power grab. The constitutional resistance within the Right has not had this much momentum since the heyday of the tea party movement.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Conservatives Cannot Afford to be Timid
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
