Democrat Activist Admits Arizona Democrat Mark Kelly Hiding Second Amendment Views in Project Veritas Sting

He’s hiding his gun control support.

A staffer of an Arizona Democrat group admits that Democrat Senate candidate Mark Kelly is seeking to downplay his views on the Second Amendment until he secures election in November.

The canvassing activist for an Arizona Democratic Party-affiliated PAC all but admits that Kelly is tacitly deceiving Arizona voters on his Second Amendment views.

The Mission for Arizona field organizer, Angelica Carpio, clarifies that “he wants to get elected first” before speaking of his policy positions on gun rights. Strangely, she says that she’s “defaming my campaign right now.

He’s trying to be elected and then he’ll implement the measures. You always can’t trust politicians.

Why would you advocate for his election if you can’t trust him on his policy positions?

Carpio admits the campaign tactic is based upon sheer political calculations.

I think he just wants to get those independents. He wants to get those Republicans that don’t trust Trump anymore, and one of their main issues is guns.

Kelly has gone completely dark on his policy views on guns. Arizona is one of the most pro-Second Amendment states in the country, and Kelly’s “Gun Safety” page on his website is extremely light on concrete policy proposals.

Kelly formerly was a leader of gun control group Giffords PAC, a group that promoted broad anti-gun rights policies such as “assault weapons ban.” The owner of an Arizona firearms company denied him when he tried to purchase an AR-style rifle in 2013, pointing out that Kelly was seeking to buy the rifle as a liberal stunt intended to show that buying rifles is too easy.

It will be critical for incumbent Republican Senator Martha McSally to confront Kelly on his gun policy views, forcing the well-funded stealth Democrat to admit if he supports so-called assault weapons bans and other gun control measures before the people of Arizona vote in the critical Senate election.

Texas Governor Abbott Wants Texas to Be a “Second Amendment Sanctuary”

The Texas GOP needs to get its act together and start passing pro-2A legislation

Published

Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he wants to turn Texas into a Second Amendment sanctuary state.

Patrick Sviteck of the Texas Tribune reported on Twitter, “Abbott tells TPPF he wants to make TX a “2A sanctuary state” this session “so that no gov’t official at any level can come & take your gun away from you despite those ppl who say, ‘Heck yes, we’re gonna take your gun.’ We’re gonna say, ‘Heck no, you cannot take ppl’s guns'” in TX.”

Abbott’s quip about taking people’s guns was in response to Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke remarks during the 2019 Democrat presidential debates where he explicitly called for gun confiscation.

Abbott’s comment came after a number of Texas counties began to declare themselves as “Second Amendment sanctuaries” throughout 2020. Daniel Friend of The Texan reported that  “By early 2020, commissioners in over 60 counties — often with the support of the county sheriff — had passed some sort of Second Amendment sanctuary resolution.”

Two elected officials have filed different versions of the Texas Firearm Protection Act, which Greg Abbott pushed back in 2013 when he was Attorney General. The TFPA is a piece of legislation that would ban law enforcement from enforcing federal gun control schemes “that purports to regulate a firearm, a firearm accessory, or firearm ammunition if the statute, order, rule, or regulation imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity or size limitation, a registration requirement, or a background check, that does not exist under the laws of this state.”

State Representative Steve Toth introduced House Bill (HB) 112 and State Representative Ben Leman introduced HB 919 — both of 2021’s version of the TFPA.

At a Texas Public Policy Foundation event, Abbott emphasized his pro-Tenth Amendment credentials by stating that “I still hold a record that will never be broken by anybody.I hold the record for the most lawsuits filed against Barack Obama — 31 legal actions against him.

The Texas Governor added, “We had to because the actions he was taking trampled upon Texas’ liberties based upon the Tenth Amendment. We need to go back to the fundamentals of the Tenth Amendment and reassert that against any potential encroachments that we see under the Biden administration.

The sanctuary movement is arguably one of the brightest spots for the right heading into the Biden era. Despite Democrat control at the federal level, there will be more paths for reform available at the state and local level. This should make Second Amendment operatives realize that not all politics is federal. Plus, gaining in power in D.C. necessitates having strong local political machines. Fighting Second Amendment battles at the state and local level is a good way to build a power base.

As cliche as it may sound, all politics is still local.
