Food Bank in Arkansas Hops on the Anti-Gun Bandwagon

Published

on

Rebekah Evans, an Arkansas woman, is leading a new anti-gun effort in her home state.

But she’s getting crafty.

As leader of the Jonesboro chapter of Moms Demand Action, she is now working with a food pantry to hand out pamphlets from Moms Demand’s Be Smart program, “which promotes safe gun storage, alongside food and other emergency supplies” according to a report from The Trace.

“It’s hard to know how to be helpful in our communities right now, so it was gratifying to do something concrete and something I hope will keep children safe in their homes,” Evans declared.

Moms Demand Action is a part of Everytown for Gun Safety, one of the most prominent civilian disarmament organizations in the nation. Evans said food pantries have handed out more than 200 pamphlets and are asking for more.

Many of these gun control organizations are becoming fixated with gun safety after record numbers of gun owners are buying firearms during the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

The Trace highlighted the concerns of one gun control leader:

Kyleanne Hunter, the vice president of programs for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, an advocacy group, said it is especially concerning that so many of the people who have bought guns in recent months appear to be first-time gun buyers who don’t have access to the training and other support that they would during normal times.

“Safe storage is not something that people think about when they first buy a gun,” commented Hunter. “It’s like when you go to the pet store and say, ‘Aw, that puppy’s really cute!’ And then you get home and think, ‘Uh oh, who’s going to let it out?’”

Jenna Sullivan, an associate pastor at the Magnolia Road Church in Jonesboro and the coordinator of the Community Services Center Friends and Neighbors Network food distribution program, recounted that she placed safe storage pamphlets next to cornflakes boxes that were sent to families in the past month.

The Trace summarized Sullivan’s views:

Sullivan said guns can be a polarizing issue in her congregation: Some people own firearms and feel strongly about their Second Amendment rights; others are open about disliking guns. But she said it’s important to seek common ground. “I’m pretty committed to finding ways to talk about these things without losing trust or respect, and while keeping a compassionate mindset,” she said.

“I hope people got the information and had that brief moment of being reminded to store guns safely,” Sullivan remarked. “I think that makes a difference.”

Indeed, gun controllers are becoming creative in their efforts to advance gun control.

21st century politics goes beyond the ballot box.

Operatives are looking to infiltrate every nook and cranny of civil society to propagate their message.

The Right must recognize these new strategies and be prepared to counter them by defending civic institutions and taking back territory the Left has seized.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
