8 Colorado Counties Revolt Against Gun Control

Published

on

Eight counties in Colorado are revolting against gun control coming out of Denver.

Custer, Fremont, Kiowa, Montezuma, Otero, Weld, Moffat and Rio Blanco have become “2nd Amendment sanctuaries” after a “Red Flag” gun confiscation bill was passed in the Colorado House.

Red flag gun confiscations orders are the current wave of gun control making headway in state legislatures across the nation. These bills allow judges to order the confiscation of an individual’s firearms if they’re considered a risk. An allegation from a family member, acquaintance, or estranged spouse is enough to justify a confiscation order.

The person subject to a red flag gun confiscation order would then have to prove their innocence in order to have their gun rights restored.

Weld Country Sheriff Steve Reams has firmly opposed this legislation. He believes it cross various constitutional lines. Reams said, “I have a duty for public safety but also have a duty to protect the Constitution.”

The Board of Weld County Commissioners agreed with Reams’s assessment of the situation and passed a resolution opposing red flag laws.

The resolution made clear that commissioners would not allocate money towards a storage facility for weapons confiscated by law enforcement.  The commissioners justified their action on their desire to uphold constitutional rights.

With Democrats in control of all three branches of the Colorado State legislature, the likelihood of red flag laws passing is very high.

Second Amendment resolutions like the ones taking place in Colorado are the way to go for gun owners living in monolithically anti-gun states.  This trend has already caught on in states like Maryland and New Mexico.

When gun control can’t be stopped in the state legislature, the next best option is to not comply.

Thanks to Spineless, Establishment Republicans, Senate Panel Delays Vote to Subpoena Big Tech CEOs

Republicans Continue to Show Pathetic They are on the Issues that Matter Most

America First nationalist’s hopes of having Big Tech CEOs testify before Congress about allegations of censorship directed towards the Right were temporarily dashed on October 19, 2020.

Politico reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed plans to vote on subpoenas to force the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook to go before the Senate and be questioned about their anti-Right wing censorship policies.

Some Republicans ended up having cold feet and decided to postpone the vote much to the disappointment of right wing activists who have complained about Big Tech’s anti-free speech policies.

President Donald Trump and a number of nationalist Republicans have sharply criticized Facebook and Twitter over their censorship of a controversial New York Post report that exposed Hunter Biden, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, and his corrupt behavior.

Originally, GOP officials in the Judiciary Committee announced plans to hold a markup on October 20 to determine if they would subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to get his perspective on allegations concerning his company’s policies that muzzle conservative viewpoints. Twitter denies claims regarding Twitter’s censorship policies.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, revealed that the planned vote would also call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify.

The panel stated on October 19 that it would determine whether they would issue subpoenas during a executive session on October 22 where it will also allegedly approve Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The committee declared in a statement that it will maintain negotiations with the companies “to allow for voluntary testimony” by the CEO. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the panel will proceed to take a vote on the subpoenas “at a date to be determined.”

The subpoenas would compel the tech big wigs to testify on the reports of “suppression and/or censorship” of New York Post stories and on “any other content moderation policies, practices, or actions that may interfere with or influence elections for federal office,” according to a committee document released on October 19.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is the chair of the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution said to reporters that he’s expecting the committee to preside over testimonies from the Twitter and Facebook chiefs “shortly” regardless of whether they come to the decision on their own volition.

“One way or another, either voluntarily or pursuant to subpoena, they will testify and they will testify before the election,” Cruz stated.

In a separate hearing for the Senate Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will join Google CEO Sundar Pichai on October 28 for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which generally shields Big Tech companies from a liability.

Cruz, who is a member of both Judiciary and Commerce committees, wants each panel to carry out their own hearings with the tech chiefs before election day. “I believe we need a separate hearing in Judiciary because the issues being discussed in the two committees are different,” Cruz remarked.

Big Tech has become too powerful, especially during a time when social media has become the de facto public square. Republicans will need to get serious about making online speech receive the same treatment as general political speech.
