Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has revealed a bombshell, perhaps accidentally, that he supported red flag gun control since before he started his run for Congress, showing that he lied on the campaign trail about his firm support of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
“I’ve been thinking seriously about this policy for years. It was not something I recently heard of. The NRA supported well-crafted GVRO,” Crenshaw told Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout, referring to a gun violence restraining order that would allow a judge to order the seizure of firearms from an individual deemed a public safety risk.
Crenshaw has gone further than supporting GVROs. He publicly endorsed pre-crime legislation such as red flag laws and The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act following mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton earlier this month.
After Bennett, an Infowars reporter and avid 2nd Amendment supporter, criticized Crenshaw on social media as a gun grabber, he sent a series of demeaning private messages to her on Twitter criticizing her activism and unwillingness to accept his excuses for infringing upon the 2nd Amendment. She exposed Crenshaw’s untoward behavior in a YouTube video.
“I hope you rethink your tactics in the future, because they are only effective at alienating people on both sides. You won’t ever persuade anyone, and you’ll drive out your allies,” Crenshaw wrote condescendingly to Bennett.
“When you alienate people, you remove yourself from any productive conversations. As you move forward as an activist, you should ask yourself if that’s really what you want,” he added.
Crenshaw was recently photographed having one of these “productive conversations” with gun confiscation activists from Moms Demand Action, a front group funded by billionaire former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
Bennett also pointed out Crenshaw’s history as a Never Trumper. Crenshaw was triggered by President Trump’s comments regarding Muslims, and insinuated that Trump is as ignorant as the deranged extremist left before he was elected into the U.S. House.
“Trump’s insane rhetoric is hateful,” Crenshaw wrote. “On the one hand you have idiots like Trump, and on the other you have equally ignorant liberals.”
Crenshaw refused to apologize for his criticism of Trump after he was confronted about his comments by liberal reporters.
“Do I regret it? I don’t know. That’s not a useful emotion. You know, you learn lessons. That’s a better way to look at life,” Crenshaw said.
Bennett is unaffected by Crenshaw’s disrespectful attitude toward her. She vows to continue defending the 2nd Amendment regardless of what the neoconservative John McCain clone has to say about it.
“Crenshaw knows that red flag laws will not stop gun violence, but will only create more of it. It will leave the very people who voted for him defenseless, and let politicians decide if they are fit to own firearms,” she said.
Bennett finished her video with a final plea to Crenshaw on why he should support the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
“You are a veteran that lost your eye fighting for our country. If you fought for our freedom, then you have no right to try to take it away,” she said.
“… Your service to this country is entirely meaningless if you are going to now serve the interests of gun-grabbing organizations like Moms Demand Action and fight to take away our freedom instead of protecting it,” Bennett asserted to Crenshaw.
Bennett claims she will now support a primary challenger against Crenshaw in 2020 who actually supports firearms freedom.
If Democrats Win, Will Guns Sales Go Through the Roof?
No matter who wins in 2020, the biggest story of this election cycle has been the record levels of gun sales. In a piece titled “Guns Sales Break Records With Gun Control Legislation Likely If Democrats Win”, Newsweek highlights the meteoric rise of gun sales in 2020 and how these sales will only go up under a Biden administration.
It’s likely that a Biden win on November 3, 2020 will give life to gun control measure such as universal background checks, assault weapons bans, and national gun buybacks. Scott Reeves of Newsweek noted that “coronavirus pandemic, urban riots and the likelihood of increased regulation if the Democrats win the White House, regain control of the Senate and hold the House” have led to the unprecedented firearms sales. A Biden win would only accelerate this trend, as people become frightened by the prospect of gun control.
Through September, background checks recorded by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) reached 28.826 million. This total surpassed 2019’s record of 28.369 million, representing a 28 percent increase, according to the FBI report. As of September 30, Illinois was leading the nation in background checks with 5.6 million. Reeves noted that other states such as Kentucky (2.364 million) checks, Texas (1.730 million), Florida (1.386 million), Indiana (1.203 million), California (1.187 million) and Pennsylvania (1.030 million), were also experiencing significant upticks in gun sales.
Since NICS came into effect on November 1998, a total of 361.830 million background checks for all purposes have been completed since the program began in November 1998.
Zogby Analytics provided some more data showing how enthusiastic Americans are about buying guns:
Zogby Analytics in Utica, New York found that the number of gun owners increased 3.9% between October 2019 and October 2020 to 31.3% of the population. The number of individuals in a household keeping a gun at home, work, vacation cottage or club for personal protection, hunting or target shooting increased 7% to 42.2% in the last year. Membership in the National Rifle Association, a gun rights advocacy group, increased 6% to 17.7% in the last year, Zogby’s polling found.
“While there is fierce debate in Washington D.C. and among voters about what certain types of guns and accessories constitute ‘assault weapons,’ adults in the U.S. are buying and keeping more guns,” Jonathan Zogby declared.
Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, an anti-Second Amendment organization, is of the opinion that uncertainty brought about by the Wuhan virus pandemic, riots, and the election are contributing factors to the rise in gun sales.
“Typically, gun sales rise in times of fear,” he said to Newsweek. “We live in a time when there’s a lot of fear, including fear that there might be more gun regulation with a Democratic President and Democratic majorities in Congress. And, there’s been a lot of unrest.”
Americans actions speak louder than their words. Even if Joe Biden does the unthinkable (and the very unlikely) by winning on November 3, his administration will encounter stiff resistance from gun-owning Americans across the political spectrum.
