Neoconservative pundit Ben Shapiro said in a recent broadcast that he is open to certain forms of gun control.
Shapiro reiterated his support for gun control after being questioned during a recent appearance on a call-in show hosted by the Young America’s Foundation, the organization that rails against cancel culture in spite of the fact that they tried to cancel Michelle Malkin just last year.
“Though President Reagan in the 1980s claimed to be pro-gun and defend the 2nd Amendment, President Reagan created stricter gun control laws, and you oppose the legalization of machine guns and fully-automatic firearms. How do you rectify this belief with being pro-2nd Amendment and why do you believe the line should be drawn at these guns?” a questioner asked Shapiro.
The former “Never Trump” leader responded that it is his belief that the 2nd Amendment only applies to “guns that are in common use” and that if the guns are not determined by government officials to be in common use, that they can “theoretically be restricted by the state.” Shapiro said that he would even consider voting to ban these types of guns in his community.
“I think that everybody acknowledges on all sides of the 2nd Amendment debate, particularly even on the more libertarian right, that there are going to be limits,“ Shapiro equivocated.
“There are lines to be drawn. That is, the machine gun is a harder line, but one that I think can be drawn, but I think anything beyond that is going to be very difficult to restrict,” he added.

When the Mob comes for you, and you are forced to defend yourself, remember Shapiro supports Gun Control on certain guns.

Big League Politics has reported on how Shapiro’s message is being amplified by Big Tech oligarchs while Trump supporters and conservative patriots are regularly unpersoned by monolithic social media providers:
The times have never been tougher for patriots and Trump supporters on social media networks, but neoconservative commentator Ben Shapiro has gone largely unscathed, and his traffic on the Facebook platform is growing as a result.
Without having to deal with competition from authentically pro-Trump voices, Shapiro’s reach has grown massively. The New York Times commented on Shapiro’s impressive reach on Facebook…
Shapiro’s influence is growing while the social media purges are ramping up…
Shapiro has likely avoided the wrath of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg because of his long history as a Never Trumper and the fact that he plays ball with the globalist establishment.
Big League Politics has reported on the dinner sessions that Zuckerberg and Shapiro shared last year and how Shapiro’s propaganda mill, Daily Wire, began producing pro-Facebook content shortly afterward.
Shapiro’s message is nothing that poses any type of concern to the globalist elite so they allow it to be widely disseminated on their monopoly platforms. He will not stand strong for President Trump, gun rights or any other issue important to conservatives.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
