FLASHBACK: Maryland Man Killed by Red Flag Law

Published

on

Today’s outrage culture has created a sense of amnesia among Americans.

It’s too easy to forget about events that happened months ago.

With discussions about red flag gun confiscation orders heating up after shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio all, gun owners should be reminded of the potential dangers of these laws.

On the Monday morning of November 6, 2018, a 61-year-old man, Gary Willis,  was served a red flag gun confiscation order in Ferndale, Maryland.

Two police officers knocked on Willis’ door at 5 AM in the morning to serve him the court order to take his gun.

What seemed like a routine court order delivery, quickly turned violent.

When the officers demanded that Willis hand over his gun, he became irate and a struggle ensued.

Eventually, one of the cops shot and killed Willis during the struggle.

Anne Arundel County Police Chief Timothy Altomare came to the cops’ defense by asserting that they “did the best they could with the situation they had.”

Maryland’s “red flag” law was signed by Republican Governor Larry Hogan in 2018.  In October 2018, the first month Maryland’s red flag law went into effect, 114 requests were made to confiscate firearms.

Fast forward to 2019, more Republicans such as Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Senators Lindsey Graham and Pat Toomey are now supporting this idea, much to their constituents’ potential detriment.

The growing consensus around red flag gun confiscation orders shows that gun rights are no longer respected by both parties in Washington.

The incident that took place last year serves as an omen of what is to come on a national scale if a red flag bill become federal law.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
