Government Vehicles Used to Transport Protestors to #MarchForOurLives Rally

Published

on

Parkland survivors and other activists with the #MarchForOurLives movement made a pit stop on their road to change in Bismarck.

“We don’t want Bismarck to be the next Parkland,” activist David Hogg said. “We don’t want anywhere to be the next Parkland.”

Even though #MarchForOurLives made a stop at Standing Rock reservation on Wednesday on the day of the Fargo Rally where President Trump was speaking, students from the Standing Rock reservation accompanied David Hogg to Bismarck as well to take the stage and share stories about gun violence. Even though David Hogg’s primary message was about disarming the public and making the notion that guns are the issue, the message of this protest was more than just about guns.

Student panelists Liz Schneider, Katie Winbauer, Taylor Toso, Tokata Iron Eyes, Bria Smith, David Hogg and Matt Deitsch spoke to a crowd of about 90 people.

“We believe in the use of the second amendment to protect your family.” Hogg said. “We also believe the same way that we have a right to bear arms we as children have a right to live.”

The one hour and 45 minute discussion was basically a push for Democrat policies in regards to immigration, EPA, and voting. However, the one thing both sides could agree on is that the current Secretary of State Al Jaeger does NOT ensure that all ELIGIBLE voters can vote BUT his policies allow anyone, illegal or legal, who hold a driver’s license able to vote in all STATE elections. Basically, you don’t really have to be an American citizen to vote in state or local elections only federal ones which is a clarification

Gary Emineth of Bismarck is pushing to ensure is rectified in local North Dakota legislation. Though, the signs on the platform showed a message of anti-arms they also showed a message of Open Borders.

But the most troubling of all issues in this rally was that the people arriving from Standing Rock Reservation to protest against the Second Amendment were driven there in a government vehicles.

Why are my tax dollars providing transportation via a "G-Ride" for political protesters? This is a GSA vehicle bringing people to a city-owned venue to fight for gun control legislation. Feel free to report. Gsa.gov. search "vehicle misuse and reckless driving". Email howsmydriving@gsa.gov — the more reports the merrier!!!This was a "March for our lives" rally in the Bismarck Civic center. We held a Pro 2nd Amendment Rally outside on the "public" space. That's when this video was taken of those showing up for the "march" people.

Last year, during the DAPL protests many government vehicles were used to transport protesters and it was disputed whether bussing protestors was “Official Government Use.” Considering the DOI had contracted the vehicles with federal funding which oversaw preservation, water, forests and all things the Department of Interior.

Since the DAPL protest had to do with preservation of things overseen and directly included to DOI handling it was deemed within scope to use the government vehicle for such activities. But does the same apply to the #MarchForOurLives Rally?

“I don’t see why this license plate for Lake Oahe Group Home would be under a Department of Interior contract, those are usually HHS,” said Ulysses, the FSR that oversees government vehicle registrations for Lake Oahe Group Home.

When Big League Politics reached out to the Department of Interior, Angela Cooper, she directed us to her email.

“I don’t handle tribal agreements myself, they are delegated elsewhere but I don’t think foster homes or group homes fall under such a category,” she said

BLP did not receive a response tot the comment request sent via email.

BLP also reached out to Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp who recently promoted and advocated for more federal funds in forms of grants to be provided to the reservation in Fort Yates.

In contrast, Hoeven, a Republican, has been silent about defending the second amendment and seems in the recent months to be very aligned with the Democratic agenda as opposed to that of his party. He has received endorsements from the NRA in the past but his gun control stance since then has been wobbly.

Hoeven is a known RINO.

Texas Governor Abbott Wants Texas to Be a “Second Amendment Sanctuary”

The Texas GOP needs to get its act together and start passing pro-2A legislation

Published

Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he wants to turn Texas into a Second Amendment sanctuary state.

Patrick Sviteck of the Texas Tribune reported on Twitter, “Abbott tells TPPF he wants to make TX a “2A sanctuary state” this session “so that no gov’t official at any level can come & take your gun away from you despite those ppl who say, ‘Heck yes, we’re gonna take your gun.’ We’re gonna say, ‘Heck no, you cannot take ppl’s guns'” in TX.”

Abbott’s quip about taking people’s guns was in response to Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke remarks during the 2019 Democrat presidential debates where he explicitly called for gun confiscation.

Abbott’s comment came after a number of Texas counties began to declare themselves as “Second Amendment sanctuaries” throughout 2020. Daniel Friend of The Texan reported that  “By early 2020, commissioners in over 60 counties — often with the support of the county sheriff — had passed some sort of Second Amendment sanctuary resolution.”

Two elected officials have filed different versions of the Texas Firearm Protection Act, which Greg Abbott pushed back in 2013 when he was Attorney General. The TFPA is a piece of legislation that would ban law enforcement from enforcing federal gun control schemes “that purports to regulate a firearm, a firearm accessory, or firearm ammunition if the statute, order, rule, or regulation imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity or size limitation, a registration requirement, or a background check, that does not exist under the laws of this state.”

State Representative Steve Toth introduced House Bill (HB) 112 and State Representative Ben Leman introduced HB 919 — both of 2021’s version of the TFPA.

At a Texas Public Policy Foundation event, Abbott emphasized his pro-Tenth Amendment credentials by stating that “I still hold a record that will never be broken by anybody.I hold the record for the most lawsuits filed against Barack Obama — 31 legal actions against him.

The Texas Governor added, “We had to because the actions he was taking trampled upon Texas’ liberties based upon the Tenth Amendment. We need to go back to the fundamentals of the Tenth Amendment and reassert that against any potential encroachments that we see under the Biden administration.

The sanctuary movement is arguably one of the brightest spots for the right heading into the Biden era. Despite Democrat control at the federal level, there will be more paths for reform available at the state and local level. This should make Second Amendment operatives realize that not all politics is federal. Plus, gaining in power in D.C. necessitates having strong local political machines. Fighting Second Amendment battles at the state and local level is a good way to build a power base.

As cliche as it may sound, all politics is still local.
