All Of A Sudden, Celebrities Are Angry At Guns Again

Published

Celebrities are hopping back on the ‘fight 2A’ bandwagon, pushing for stricter gun control.

Former Disney Channel star, Miley Ray Cyrus Tweeted a picture strutting what appears to be a hand-made t-shirt stating, “protect kids not gun”.

Cyrus’ t-shirt follows suit after country music stars Dierks Bentley and Tyler Hubbard (he sings for Florida Georgia Line – I had no idea who he was, either) joined the Toms campaign to #EndGunViolenceTogether.  The social justice warriors are advocating for universal background checks before the purchase of firearms… even though that has been law since 1998 and almost every mass shooting has consisted of guns that were bought legally, according to Breitbart. Maybe celebs missed that part in their Google search for trending gun safety arguments.

Of course, after the realization in the error filled anti-gun argument, some took to Instagram to “clear up confusion”:

Dierks Bentley and Tyler Hubbard (FGL) – after the realization that background checks for gun purchases are already a thing – state they simply want to get rid of gun shows, flea markets, and private vendors of guns. They just want the government to have authority of firearm purchases! Is that too much to ask? Government regulation of gun purchases is the best avenue for ceasing mass shootings, duh. Because big government is the answer to everything, according to these country singers.

The trending(ish) hashtag, #EndGunViolenceTogether has celebs throwing in their (irrelevant) two cents on how to handle the problem:

Newsflash: banning flea markets and gun shows is still an infringement on the second amendment. Unfortunately, celebrity endorsement and government regulation is not the answer to mass shootings. Fo shizzle.

Texas Governor Abbott Wants Texas to Be a “Second Amendment Sanctuary”

The Texas GOP needs to get its act together and start passing pro-2A legislation

Published

Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he wants to turn Texas into a Second Amendment sanctuary state.

Patrick Sviteck of the Texas Tribune reported on Twitter, “Abbott tells TPPF he wants to make TX a “2A sanctuary state” this session “so that no gov’t official at any level can come & take your gun away from you despite those ppl who say, ‘Heck yes, we’re gonna take your gun.’ We’re gonna say, ‘Heck no, you cannot take ppl’s guns'” in TX.”

Abbott’s quip about taking people’s guns was in response to Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke remarks during the 2019 Democrat presidential debates where he explicitly called for gun confiscation.

Abbott’s comment came after a number of Texas counties began to declare themselves as “Second Amendment sanctuaries” throughout 2020. Daniel Friend of The Texan reported that  “By early 2020, commissioners in over 60 counties — often with the support of the county sheriff — had passed some sort of Second Amendment sanctuary resolution.”

Two elected officials have filed different versions of the Texas Firearm Protection Act, which Greg Abbott pushed back in 2013 when he was Attorney General. The TFPA is a piece of legislation that would ban law enforcement from enforcing federal gun control schemes “that purports to regulate a firearm, a firearm accessory, or firearm ammunition if the statute, order, rule, or regulation imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity or size limitation, a registration requirement, or a background check, that does not exist under the laws of this state.”

State Representative Steve Toth introduced House Bill (HB) 112 and State Representative Ben Leman introduced HB 919 — both of 2021’s version of the TFPA.

At a Texas Public Policy Foundation event, Abbott emphasized his pro-Tenth Amendment credentials by stating that “I still hold a record that will never be broken by anybody.I hold the record for the most lawsuits filed against Barack Obama — 31 legal actions against him.

The Texas Governor added, “We had to because the actions he was taking trampled upon Texas’ liberties based upon the Tenth Amendment. We need to go back to the fundamentals of the Tenth Amendment and reassert that against any potential encroachments that we see under the Biden administration.

The sanctuary movement is arguably one of the brightest spots for the right heading into the Biden era. Despite Democrat control at the federal level, there will be more paths for reform available at the state and local level. This should make Second Amendment operatives realize that not all politics is federal. Plus, gaining in power in D.C. necessitates having strong local political machines. Fighting Second Amendment battles at the state and local level is a good way to build a power base.

As cliche as it may sound, all politics is still local.
