We can now count Bernie Sanders as a reliable foot soldier for the gun control agenda.
Since announcing his run for the U.S. Presidency, the Vermont Senator has been on Twitter laying out his campaign priorities.
In a recent tweet, Bernie Sanders towed the Democratic Party line on gun control.
Using the same epidemic language that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invoked after President Trump’s State of the Union Address, Sanders has made it clear that gun control will be a key plank of his campaign.
I’m running for president because we must end the epidemic of gun violence in this country. We need to take on the NRA, expand background checks, end the gun show loophole and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons.
Ironically, Sanders received a lukewarm endorsement from NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre in the 1990s during one of Sanders’s congressional runs. LaPierre went as far as to say that “Bernie Sanders is a more honorable choice for Vermont sportsmen than Peter Smith.” This was in reference to the Republican incumbent’s decision to come out in favor of an assault weapons ban.
However, things have changed in recent times. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Sanders received a D- rating from the NRA. However, that was not enough for the likes of Hilary Clinton, who blasted him for not being sufficiently anti-gun throughout the 2016 Democratic primaries.
Clinton asserted that “When it really mattered, Senator Sanders voted with the gun lobby and I voted against the gun lobby,” which referenced a bill Sanders voted for that shielded gun manufacturers and sellers from legal liability due to firearm misusage.
Fast forward to 2019, Sanders is now faithfully following the gun control script. And it’s a sign of the times. His home state of Vermont has been taking an anti-gun course over the past few years. In 2018, Republican Governor Phil Scott signed S.55 into law, which includes bump stock ban, universal background checks, and red flag gun confiscation provisions.
As a self-proclaimed socialist, it is no surprise Sanders is now unabashedly supporting gun control. Socialists believe in control of all facets of human life, from business activities down to how people defend themselves.
At the end of the day, people won’t let others confiscate their private property without a fight. For that reason, socialists make sure to restrict firearm ownership as much possible to prevent uprisings.
Bernie Sanders can claim to be a democratic socialist all he wants, but his proposals will lead to anything but a democratic outcome.

Houston Police Allow Abortion Clinic to Operate Despite Texas Courts Ruling Them Non-Essential
On March 30th, a judge ruled that Texas abortion clinics could stay open. This ruling came a few days after the Texas governor, Greg Abbott, deemed abortion servies non-essential.
Since abortions are clearly elective surgeries, the ruling was overturned by a vote of 2-1 in the 5th circuit court of appeals on March 31st. Meaning, the governor’s order stands and abortion clinics must close until non-essential businesses are allowed to open back up.
This hasn’t stopped one abortion clinic in Houston from continuing to kill the unborn.
In a video released on April 1st, via the YouTube channel ‘ProofThatGodExists,’ an abortion clinic in Houston is shown to still be accepting clients.
A couple of pro-life activists are shown in the video standing outside the abortion clinic. Across the street is a police officer, with whom one of the activists eventually talks.
They tell the offiicer that the abortion offices are still seeing clients. The officer acknowledges their concerns and says, “we’ll take care of it.”
A few minutes later, the officer goes to talk to the pro-life activists. The officer informed the activists that he was just there to “keep the peace” and nothing else.
One of the activists again informed the officer of the situation, asking, “Do you know that it’s illegal for them to do abortions today?” The officer replied, “I’m not out here for that.”
The activist then reiterated that he was asking him not why he was there, but if he personally knew of the current order. He wanted to know if the officer was not enforcing because he didn’t know about the order or because his department was choosing to ignore it in this case.
The officer didn’t want to answer directly. So, he again said, “I’m not saying that what you’re saying is wrong…. But that’s not what I’m out here for. I’m out here to keep the peace….”
He then said, “Whoever you need to call to enforce what you’re asking me about…” He was interupted by the second activist, who challenged him, insisting, “When people are breaking the law, we call the police.”
The video continues on with many more women entering the clinic. Eventually the abortion doctor arrived to the clinic, as well.
It’s clear that the clinic is in direct violation of the order that declares abortion services non-essential. Why the Houston police aren’t enforcing the order as it pertains to this particular clinic is still unclear.
