Austin Gun Store Owner Stands Up to Washington’s Bureaucratic Gun Grab

Published

on

Austin, Texas, gun store owner Michael Cargill has filed a lawsuit against the ATF because of the federal government’s recent bump stock ban.

The U.S. Department of Justice issued the federal ban on bump stocks in a decision it made in December.

Bump stock owners were given 90 days to destroy or turn in their devices, but that grace period ended at midnight earlier this week.

Despite turning in his bump stocks to the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) field office on Monday, March 26, 2019, Cargill refused to sign paperwork giving the government permission to destroy these devices.

Cargill stood firmly against this measure saying “I’m going to comply. I’m going to turn it in, but I’m going to fight. I’m going to fight for everyone in the State of Texas and this country.”

The Las Vegas massacre of October 2017, where 58 people were killed, became a rallying point for gun control advocates nationwide. Authorities said some of the firearms used to carry out the massacre were equipped with bump stocks, which compelled states like Florida, Maryland, and Vermont to take action by passing bump stock bans of their own.

The federal government eventually caught up with states by issuing a bump stock ban late last year.

Ed Scruggs, the vice chair of Texas Gun Sense, defended the bump stock ban.

After Las Vegas, it was undeniable what they do and it was undeniable the destructive power they have and they had to act.

According to Jennifer Kendall of Fox 7, a “bump stock attaches to a semi-automatic rifle to allow a shooter to fire continuously by using the recoil of the firearm to hit the trigger in rapid succession.”

Scruggs continued justifying the need for a bump stock ban:

For practical use it serves no purpose, other than to kill more people, so why in this society, with the violence going on now, do we need those.

Bump stocks were originally not subject to stiff government regulation because they did not fall under the legal definition of a machine gun. In other words, guns that used bump stocks still had to have the trigger be pulled for each shot.

This is all changed in 2018 when the Department of Justice issued a new ruling declaring that bump stocks fall under the fully automatic category and were subject to the same regulations that automatic weapons faced.

Cargill made his opposition to this ruling clear:

There needs to be a clear message sent to the federal government that, as a citizen who legally purchased an item, I should be able to have that item.

Cargill teamed up with the New Civil Liberties Alliance law firm to file this lawsuit against the ATF. They contend that the Justice Department doesn’t have the authority to conduct this ban.  Instead, they argue that changes in the law should be carried out by Congress.

Scruggs countered, “Well, the power of a regulatory agency, they can change regulations all the time.”

Cargill is filing the lawsuit against the ATF, the U.S. Attorney General and the Department of Justice in order to overturn the regulation.

The seasoned gun rights activist won’t be going down without a fight. In his concluding remarks, Cargill stated, “If you step on the rights of the people who believe in the second amendment, then my job is to put my foot on your throat.”

After this grace period, any individual in possession of a bump stock can be subject to heavy fines and ten years in prison.

Woke Leftists Upset Over Christian Organzation Setting Up Hospital for Coronavirus Patients

Published

on

Samaritan’s Purse, a charitable Christian organization that helps the poor and sick all over the world, has setup a temporary tent hopsital in New York City.

Most see this as an all around positive, but not radical LGBTQ activists and their allies.

Some Leftists in New York have complained of the organization’s traditional Christian beliefs on sexuality. They claim to believe that Samaritan’s Purse might treat LGBTQ patients with less consideration or care.

This nonsensical narrative reached Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s office, who has also now expressed concern. DeBlasio said,

I said immediately to my team that we had to find out ­exactly what was happening. Was there going to be an approach that was truly consistent with the values [of] New York City?

We’re going to send people over from [my] office to monitor. I’m very concerned to make sure this is done right. But if it is done right, of course, we need all the help we can get.

Samaritan’s Purse and its workers have done everything from risking their lives to serve Ebola patients in Africa to helping after tornadoes here in the states. They have also already been dealing with coronavirus in Italy, giving them much needed experience.

They are exactly who you want to show up in a time like this. The combination of experience, compassion, and dedication they have is very hard to match.

And no, they do not discrimate based on sexuality. They never have and there is no indication they ever will.

To suggest that they need to be monitored or that New York should be worried about their presense is not only unwarranted, it’s insulting.

DeBlasio is taking advantage of Samaritan’s Purse because he knows they, unlike him, are not utter degenerates. He knows that Samaritan’s Purse will do everything they can to help, despite knowing they are hated by the Mayor and his ilk.

This whole incident shows that Bill DeBlasio is a weak effiminate man who is more concerned with his public imagine than saving lives. He will accept the help, but insult those helpers, all while pretending he has displayed some sort of virtue.

This is outright bigotry, disguised with smooth talk.
