District Judge Takes Down Mississippi’s Open Carry Ban

Published

on

On June 17, 2020, U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III issued an order that keeps the citizens from the city of Jackson, Mississippi from trying to prohibit the open carry of firearms as long as this form of carry is legal at the state level.

The Clarion Ledger reported that the judge’s order was a “consent decree” where Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba and the Jackson City Council came to an agreement to not to try to limit open carry in the future.

According to a Breitbart News report, Lumumba made an announcement back in April which he banned open carry during the Wuhan virus pandemic emergency.

Lumumba stated:

The Open Carry law interferes with law enforcement’s ability to take illegal guns off of the streets. Prior to the Open Carry law, when Jackson police officers saw a gun in plain view, it gave them the probable cause to seize the weapon and determine whether it was an illegal weapon or not. The Open Carry law not only provides protection for individuals who are armed with illegal weapons; it creates an atmosphere of fear and intimidation in the community. We cannot continue to turn a blind eye to the fact that the Open Carry law has led to an increase in gun violence in our communities.

The NRA-ILA reported that Mississippi moved forward with a lawsuit against Lumumba’s order in the U.S. District Court of Mississippi’s Southern District.

Republican State Representative Dana Criswell is the plaintiff in the suit, who asserted that Lumumba’s ban constitutes a suspension of a constitutional right to carry a firearm openly in public for self-defense” and alleged that the issuance of the ban “exploited the present public health crisis caused by the exponential spread of COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, as a pretext to target persons exercising their constitutional right to carry a firearm openly in public for self-defense.”

Because of the federal court issuing the consent decree, the ban has been ended.

CNN Journos Are Throwing a Fit About a Trump Administration Official’s Pro-Western Civilization Comments

Published

On June 29, 2020, writers Andrew Kaczynski and Nathan McDermott penned an op-ed at CNN attacking Merritt Corrigan, a deputy White House liaison at the US Agency for International Development, for some of the tweets she made between 2019 and 2020.

They claimed that she “has a history of inflammatory rhetoric aimed at refugees, the LGBTQ community and women.” CNN’s KFile analyzed several of the tweets from Corrigan’s account, “which were captured by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.”

Corrigan was previously employed at Hungary’s Embassy in the U.S.where she tweeted in support of nationalist Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on multiple occasions.  She described him as “the shining champion of Western civilization,” according to ProPublica, which covered a number of Corrigan’s tweets on June 5.

Corrigan was also attacked for some of her anti-mass migration tweets. “Mass deportations when?,” Corrigan tweeted back in October 2019, linking to a 2010 article in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that Germany’s multicultural experiment was a failure.

Corrigan also questioned radical feminist narratives, which bothered the hall monitors in the mainstream media. She was singled out in particular over a comment that she made in response to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s statement in support of homosexual marriage during a Democratic presidential townhall.

“This sick statement by Warren, which glibly mocks a real crisis happening in our society, is exactly why women shouldn’t be in office. They will always advocate for themselves at the expense of men, and revel in it,” she tweeted back in October 2019.

In another tweet from that same month, Corrigan bashed conservative radio host Michael Knowles for sharing a picture of himself with a drag queen.

“Right wing gatekeepers have made it abundantly clear that their allegiance is to Satan and those who carry out his agenda of appalling sexual perversion over those who question the liberal status quo,” Corrigan tweeted.

It’s funny how outlets like CNN will obsess over people’s social media history, while turning a blind eye to journalists on the Left like the Washington Post’s global opinions editor Karen Attiah who recently declared that “White women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s.’ And not calling for revenge,” in a tweet she quickly deleted.

CNN would be better served by actually reporting on the news and doing real journalism.

But that that might be too much to ask from a purveyor of Fake News like CNN which is more interested in perpetuating political correctness and distorting political developments to fit their globalist agenda.
