Ben Shapiro Agrees with ‘March For Our Lives’ Co-Founder: Gun Control is ‘Good Idea’

The leader of the Never Trumpers has turned his back on the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

Neoconservative commentator and Trump opponent Ben Shapiro has shown his complete and utter disdain for the 2nd Amendment in recent days, calling for gun control measures in the wake of this past weekend’s mass shootings.

Shapiro issued his tepid support for “red flag laws” today, which would allow gun confiscations to occur without due process based on an informant system determined by a judge.

Shapiro then chatted with Cameron Lasky, a co-founder of the ‘March For Our Lives’ gun control group, where the two agreed wholeheartedly that gun control is in the answer.

He made note of his support of gun-violence restraining orders (GVROs), which would allow individuals be stripped of their gun rights by the courts in a similar fashion to red flag laws. Shapiro cited David French, a Never Trumper who literally cheerleads for the Democrats these days, as his inspiration for supporting these anti-constitutional policies.

Shapiro wrote in 2018:

Giving the government more legal power to confiscate weaponry or prosecute those who are dangerous means nothing if the government blows every available opportunity.

But we can do more.

David French at National Review suggests an option: gun-violence restraining orders, or GVROs. These would allow family members to apply for an order enabling the legal authorities to temporarily remove guns from those who are deemed to be a significant danger to themselves or others. Furthermore, we should ensure more transparency in the background-check system with regard to mental health records, and we should look to ease the regulations on involuntary commitment of the dangerously mentally ill.

Shapiro has been on the war path against conservatism in recent days, defending Draconian tech censorship against white people and supporting expanded gun control measures while echoing the media-created hysteria about the dangers of white supremacy.

It’s never been more obvious that Shapiro is controlled opposition, working on behalf of the globalists to neutralize legitimate right-wing thought than it is right now.

Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020

Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.

Published

Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued. 

According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued. 

Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”

The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”

Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.

Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.

2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
