In his first statement following the shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH, former President Obama has come forward with an aggressive plan for Democrats: Do more, and consider passing gun confiscation laws.
His response came in a Tweet, where the former President seems to blame President Donald Trump for the shooting in El Paso, regurgitating the same talking points that CNN has been spewing since the moment the shooting occurred. Not only that, but Obama seems to insinuate the the United States, which elected him, a black man, as President, is white supremacist, stating that the shooter acted to “preserve white supremacy.”
Until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening: https://t.co/reTnmcg3xo

But while his statement isn’t all that surprising. It is the article he posted in response that should really raise some eyebrows.
Obama posted an article from the far-left website Vox, where an author gives some suggestions to “stop gun violence.” The article claims that Democrats should go further than they currently are with their proposals, citing ideas like “universal background checks,” and “assault weapons bans” as not being enough.
Instead, the author says that Democrats should go all-out, citing the gun confiscation plan of former Presidential candidate Eric Swalwell as an example.
The Vox article reads:
“To change the status quo, Democrats should go big. They need to focus on the abundance of guns in the US and develop a suite of policies that directly tackle that issue, from licensing to confiscation to more aggressive bans of certain kinds of firearms (including, perhaps, all semiautomatic weapons or at least some types of handguns).”
While that drivel is unsurprising when coming from the “intellectual elites” at Vox. It is surprising that it is being shared approvingly by a former President, and especially from Obama, who still has a significant role in the Democrat Party.
But it isn’t very surprising that Democrats are wanting to go big on the issue. Instead of taking a hard-line issue in support of the Second Amendment, President Trump continues to waffle on the issue, supporting many of the gun control proposals that leading gun-rights activists have been warning about for years.
In a press conference following the shooting, Trump called for “universal background checks,” and “red flag” gun confiscation orders.
As Big League Politics‘ own Jose Nino explains, his proposals would have done nothing to stop the shooting in El Paso.
But what Trump’s calls for gun control, even what some would call minor gun control, does is give Democrats more ground in what is truly a war for the Second Amendment in the United States.
If President Trump wants to make a real difference in preventing mass shootings. He should considering removing gun free zones, considering that 98% of mass shootings occur in gun free zones, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center.

Parkland Father Demands for Red Flag Laws to be Used on Kaitlin Bennett Following Campus Gang Attack
Kaitlin Bennett’s rights are under attack from the Left.
One day after Infowars journalist Kaitlin Bennett was viciously assaulted by a mob of left-wing terrorists at Ohio University (OU), a Parkland father and radical gun control advocate is calling for her to be stripped of her 2nd Amendment rights with red flag laws.
Fred Guttenberg, allegedly a father of a shooting victim in Parkland, Fla., wants Bennett to be robbed of her core freedoms because he was triggered because of an open carry rally she is planning to show that she is completely undaunted by the left-wing terror mob.
“I will absolutely be returning to @ohiou’s campus again, and next time I’ll bring an army of gun owners for an open carry walk through campus,” Bennett wrote on Twitter. “You can’t keep us away and you can’t keep us silent. Just like Donald Trump, we will always win.”
Guttenberg told Newsweek that Bennett’s comment “pushes for the possibility of gun violence” and should be taken as a threat, despite the lack of any call for conflict in her statement.
“This person @KaitMarieox is desperately seeking attention. However, what she may need is for an ERPO to be issued. Sorry Kait, not getting the attention you wanted is not a reason to threaten gun violence. In fact, your tweet is the reason that open carry should not exist,” Guttenberg wrote in a Tweet.
An “ERPO,” or an extreme risk protection order, is another euphemism for “red flag laws,” which have been used across the country to take away the gun rights from individuals without due process.
Big League Politics has highlighted some of the worst abuses stemming from red flag laws that have occurred throughout the country, including a military veteran who lost his weapons due to a case of mistaken identity in Florida; a doctor snitching on a patient who was suing him so his guns would be confiscated in New Jersey; an Iraq War veteran who lost his guns after protesting the governor while wearing a MAGA hat in Oregon; and a man who lost his life when police came to confiscate his guns in Maryland.
Unfortunately for totalitarians such as Guttenberg, the state of Ohio does not have a red flag law in place, so Bennett’s 2nd Amendment rights are not in jeopardy.
Liberty Hangout posted video of Bennett being attacked by the mob of jackals yesterday as she tried to walk throughout the OU campus:
The @oupolice lied and said that no violence happened and that there were just "allegations that some unknown person splashed water." Students at @ohiou were throwing things at me all day, dumped hot coffee on me, & vandalized @Joelpatrick1776's truck right in front of the cops. pic.twitter.com/XnMUqFWtrH

By putting herself out there and conducting bold activism in the face of severe adversity, Bennett is proving the need for universal gun rights, in order to fend off crazed liberals who would put a Soviet-style regime into power at the flip of a switch if they could get away with it.
Leftists: threaten to kill Kaitlin Bennett, her family, and anyone that supports her
Also leftists: "I don't get it, why do you need to own guns?"

Big League Politics will cover Bennett’s upcoming open carry rally at OU and the inevitable backlash it will receive from the extreme Left.
