U.S. District Judge Judge Josephine Staton recently ruled that the Second Amendment’s existence does not justify the legality of semiautomatic “killing machines” in California.
This ruling came in response to a California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) lawsuit against the state’s “assault weapons” ban.
AWR Hawkins reports that the CRPA originally “sought a summary judgement against the “assault weapons” ban on behalf of Plaintiff Steven Rupp.”
Stanton rejected the summary judgment request, describing “semiautomatic rifles with non-fixed magazines” as “killing machines” which “are essentially indistinguishable from M-16s.”
What Stanton gets wrong is that M-16s are fully automatic firearms, while AR-15s are semiautomatic rifles. Stanton’s reasoning mirrors California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who said that “[a]ssault rifles may be banned because they are, like the M-16, ‘weapons that are most useful in military service’; and ‘they are also not “in common use” for lawful purposes like self-defense.’”
Since the Parkland shooting in 2018, the AR-15 has become the whipping boy for the gun control crowd.
However, the fears surrounding the AR-15 are misguided. In 2017, all types of rifles were involved in the deaths of 403 people. This was a year when approximately 15,000 people were murdered, this includes both firearms and non-firearms related deaths.
Despite its perceived danger, the AR-15 only accounted for 173 deaths in mass shootings from 2007 to 2017.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò Pens Open Letter to Donald Trump Explaining the Globalist “Great Reset” to “Subdue Humanity”
More shocking claims from the courageous, conservative archbishop.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has written another open letter to President Donald Trump warning of the encroaching dangers of globalism.
The entire letter can be read here. Viganò speaks of a “global plan called the Great Reset, in which a “global élite […] wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations.”
“The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and canceling individual debt. The price of these concessions from the International Monetary Fund will be the renunciation of private property and adherence to a program of vaccination against COVID-19 and COVID-21 promoted by Bill Gates with the collaboration of the main pharmaceutical groups,” Viganò wrote.
He also calls out Pope Francis, claiming he “has betrayed his role from the very beginning in order to defend and promote the globalist ideology, supporting the agenda of the deep Church, who chose him from its ranks.”
Despite painting a bleak picture, in true Christian fashion Viganò offers hope at the end of his letter:
The adversary does not know how to love, and it does not understand that it is not enough to assure a universal income or to cancel mortgages in order to subjugate the masses and convince them to be branded like cattle. This people, which for too long has endured the abuses of a hateful and tyrannical power, is rediscovering that it has a soul; it is understanding that it is not willing to exchange its freedom for the homogenization and cancellation of its identity; it is beginning to understand the value of familial and social ties, of the bonds of faith and culture that unite honest people. This Great Reset is destined to fail because those who planned it do not understand that there are still people ready to take to the streets to defend their rights, to protect their loved ones, to give a future to their children and grandchildren. The leveling inhumanity of the globalist project will shatter miserably in the face of the firm and courageous opposition of the children of Light. The enemy has Satan on its side, He who only knows how to hate. But on our side, we have the Lord Almighty, the God of armies arrayed for battle, and the Most Holy Virgin, who will crush the head of the ancient Serpent. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31).
Mr. President, you are well aware that, in this crucial hour, the United States of America is considered the defending wall against which the war declared by the advocates of globalism has been unleashed. Place your trust in the Lord, strengthened by the words of the Apostle Paul: “I can do all things in Him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). To be an instrument of divine providence is a great responsibility, for which you will certainly receive all the graces of state that you need, since they are being fervently implored for you by the many people who support you with their prayers.
With this heavenly hope and the assurance of my prayer for you, for the first lady, and for your collaborators, with all my heart I send you my blessing.
God bless the United States of America!
Carlo Maria Viganò
Tit. archbishop of Ulpiana
Former apostolic nuncio to the United States of America
Big League Politics has covered Archbishop Viganò pretty closely. We reported on his accusation that the Deep State is working with what he calls the “Deep Church” in order to spread and strengthen globalist, neoliberal interests. We also reported on Robert Moynihan’s new book about the archbishop, titled Finding Vigano: In Search of the Man Whose Testimony Shook the Church and the World.
Again, you can read the archbishop’s entire letter here.
