Freshman Congresswoman Haley Stevens (D-MI) held a contentious town hall at a gun club in Commerce Township, MI on Tuesday where she called for widespread gun control and the end of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
“This is why the NRA has got to go! The NRA has go to go!” Stevens exclaimed, as the divided crowd roared in response.
The town hall took place in the indoor gun range of the Multi Lakes Conservation Association, a group that regularly hosts the NRA and other pro-gun events. Republican organizers in the area explain that the venue was duped into holding the event by deceptive Democrats who misrepresented their real intentions.
“I think they just snuck it in here. I can tell you that the members of this gun club aren’t happy about it,” explained 11th Congressional District Republican Party Chairwoman Meshawn Maddock to FOX 2 News.
“Somehow, Fems for Dems booked this event using a different name. The sweet woman that I talked to said that it said “Fems for Life” in her calendar,” she explained.
While Stevens may have wanted a photo op in a gun club to use against the NRA and defenders of the 2nd Amendment, many patriotic Republicans crashed the event, and it did not go according to plan. The event was abruptly halted over an hour before it was scheduled to end, and Stevens ducked out shortly afterward instead of facing one-on-one questions from her constituents.
“The 11th Congressional District isn’t progressive,” Maddock said. “It’s Republican. And Republicans support the Second Amendment and we like our legally owned guns. You’ve got a lot of nerve holding an anti-gun rally in the heart of gun-country. So we will rally voters to show you what voters think about two things. First, your lack of support for our Second Amendment. Then your poor decision to select this location for your town hall.”
Stevens, although not officially a member of the far-left “Squad,” certainly echoes their values when it comes to the 2nd Amendment. She is one of the Congress’ most fervent advocates against gun rights.
“I have made gun violence prevention one of my top priorities since the day I was sworn in to Congress,” she said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The U.S. House of Representatives has taken major steps forward to protect our communities from gun violence, passing the first major gun safety legislation in a generation to expand background checks to all firearm sales. Now, we are calling on Senate Majority Leader McConnell to allow a vote on this pragmatic, bipartisan legislation so we can prevent dangerous weapons from falling into the wrong hands,” she added.
The 11th Congressional District of Michigan is expected to be a competitive race during the next election, as it was a district won by President Trump in 2016 that was flipped to the Democrats in the 2018 mid-term elections when Trump was off the ballot. Asian-American Trump supporter Whittney Williams is the only declared Republican challenger against Stevens heading into 2020.
Democrat Black Farmers Bill Would Give Away $8 Billion of Land Yearly in Reparations Program
South Africa-style land redistribution?
Democrat Senators are touting new legislation that would purchase national farmland and give it away to Black Americans for free.
Democrats Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are sponsoring the the Justice for Black Farmers Act, which seems likely to be the most wide-ranging affirmative action program ever enacted if it’s signed into law. It’s not inaccurate to call the bill a reparations program.

The law establishes preferences for Black Americans within Department of Agriculture policy. Blacks would be granted free land purchased by the federal government, in total increments that appear to add up to $8 billion a year.
An undersecretary of a USDA “Equitable Land Access Service” would be entrusted with purchasing(using taxpayer funds) and redistributing land. The reparation bill appropriates for a massive 20,000 grants annually over ten years, adding up to a total redistribution package of $80 billion.
The under-secretary would be commissioned to “(1) purchase from willing sellers, at a price not greater than fair market value, available agricultural land in the United States; and (2) subject to section 205, convey grants of that land to eligible Black individuals at no cost to the eligible Black individuals.”
If the bill redistributes 160 acres per grant, it would ultimately end up transferring 1.6% of the total land in the continental United States for free.
Democrats cite a decline in the numbers of black farmers since the 1920’s as an impetus for the bill, pointing out that there were 1 million black farmers in 1920 and 50,000 today. Such logic ignores that the number of American farmers broadly has declined sharply as the United States transitioned to an industrial economy, and that millions of Black Americans who worked under poor conditions as sharecroppers in the American South have long since moved to northern cities.
The bill is somewhat similar to South African racial land redistribution policies, which differ primarily in that they forcibly nationalized land owned by Afrikaner farmers and redistributed them to South African Blacks. South Africa’s land reforms in the name of “equity” have proven to generally be a failure, with novel farmers unable to utilize the land they’ve been gifted in a manner beneficial to society. South Africa has transitioned from a bountiful agricultural society known as the “bread basket of Africa” to a net food importer, with experts pointing to arbitrary land redistribution as a factor in doing so.
