FIREARM FREEDOM: Italian Senate Approves Self-Defense Bill

Published

on

The Italian Senate passed the new personal defense bill this week, allowing law-abiding citizens to defend their homes and families from criminals.

Il Giornale reports that this reform modifies article 52 of the Italian penal code and now gives Italians the right to use “a legitimately held weapon” to protect themselves and their families.  Due to this reform, individuals are less likely to be held criminally liable in cases of self-defense.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Mattero Salvini, one of the Italian government’s strongest advocates for self-defense reform, praised the new law.

Salvini commented on this newly passed law saying, “It is a beautiful day for the Italians in which the sacrosanct right to self-defense is sanctioned”.

The Minister of the Interior explained how this reform works, “A thief comes into your house, company or store, and you defend yourself? It will be your right to do so, and the thug (and his relatives) will not be able to ask for a euro of compensation”.

Salvini added, “Besides, you won’t end up on trial for years and you won’t pay your own pocket: the state will cover any legal expenses of those who defended themselves.”

The League (Lega) party leader also noted how this reform would be a powerful criminal deterrent, saying “From today the criminals know that to be a robber in Italy is more difficult: it is an even more dangerous job.”

Since Salvini took power in 2018, Italy has undergone a significant political transformation.

Big League Politics reported how illegal immigration has dropped substantially under Salvini’s watch. Now, the country is empowering its citizens by expanding gun rights.

This is a stark contrast from EU countries such as the UK whose stringent gun laws in conjunction with lax immigration policies have turned migrant sectors of the city into danger zones where people cannot defend themselves from the city’s ongoing crime wave.

Italy’s recent move to expand gun rights may also be influencing countries like Spain, whose Vox Party is leading the way in reforming gun laws that allow citizens to have more self-defense options.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
