Earlier this week, the New York Young Republican Club announced its official cooperation with Lega Giovani, the youth wing of the Lega party in Italy.
Lega has built its reputation as one of the fastest growing political parties in Italy and one of the premier populist parties in Europe.
In a statement signed by the New York Young Republican Club President Gavin Wax and Member of the Italian Parliament Luca Toccalini, they described Lega’s political platform as one that promotes “many of the same themes as President Donald J Trump, such as halting illegal immigration and resisting the rising tide of globalism.”
In the populist conservatives’ view, “forging new ties between likeminded patriotic youth movements around the world is necessary and beneficial to counter the Left’s growing international networks.”
They believe that cooperation “will bring our respective nations closer together, and we will collaborate to counter the international threat to Western civilization.”
The two conservative groups recognize the importance of the Italian-American demographic — with 1.3 million Italians and Italian-Americans living in the New York City metropolitan area — as a potential voting bloc for Lega in future elections. Their cooperative efforts will involve the New York Young Republican Club assisting Lega Giovani “in outreach to New Yorkers of Italian origin who are eligible to vote in the next Italian election.”
In addition, the New York Young Republican Club and Lega Giovani are collaborating to protect Christopher Columbus statues in the United States. The New York Young Republican Club announced that it “will seek to preserve and protect these statues from the radical mobs intent on destroying our shared heritage and rewriting our history.”
The two organizations concluded:
The New York Young Republican Club and Lega Giovani look forward to conducting joint events in the near future as part of what both organizations hope will be an extensive and constructive relationship.
The partnership that these two groups have crafted is a model that other conservative organizations should emulate.
There is always strength in numbers and no one lives on an island in politics.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
