Both Parties Approve a Bill that Includes “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Orders for Military Personnel

Published

Michael Hammond, the legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America, made an update to GOA members informing them about a new gun grab that Congress is trying to ram through while everyone’s attention is focused on the Wuhan virus.

In his report, Hammond asserted that a number of House “pro-gun” Republicans voted for a large defense bill which contained a “red flag” gun confiscation provision specifically tailored to military members.

Aidan Johnston, GOA’s Director of Federal Affairs, highlighted this congressional farce in an article for the Houston Courant.

The Gun Confiscation Orders (GCOs) passed in the House only apply to people subject to the United States Code of Military Justice. However, these orders would be worse in many regards when compared to “red flag” GCO programs being pushed in state legislatures.

Hammond pointed out that the essentials are the same: “a gun owner can be stripped of his or her Second Amendment-protected rights in an ex parte proceeding by an unsubstantiated allegation from a hostile relative who dislikes him or her.  Experience shows that the confiscation normally occurs in a surprise raid on the gun owner’s home in the middle of the night.”

At the moment, the GCO is part of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Hammond called attention to several differences between state red flag orders and the provision that just passed the House:

“Unlike the boilerplate GCOs drafted by gun control groups and passed in 19 states, the House-passed NDAA bill allows the president—presumably, in their opinion, President Joe Biden—to write all of the particulars.”

Hammond declared that “House Republicans were caught sleeping.”  Although Trump has threatened to veto the bill, a number of Republicans teamed up with Democrats to pass gun confiscation, with a veto-proof majority to boot.

This illustrates the bipartisan nature of the gun control status quo in Washington D.C.

The only way gun owners can break this cycle is by using the primaries to punish bad incumbent Republicans and getting more principled Second Amendment defenders elected to Congress.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
