Gun Owners of America, Congressional Republicans Call for AG Barr To Investigate Rogue Soros-Funded Saint Louis Prosecutor Railroading McCloskeys

She needs to be held accountable.

Published

Gun rights organization Gun Owners of America is calling upon Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate Soros-funded Saint Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner, citing the Democrat’s legally dubious witch hunt targeting Mark and Patricia McCloskey. Gardner is attempting to charge the Saint Louis couple with firearms charges for wielding a rifle and a non-functional courtroom prop on their own property, in the face of a trespassing mob of Black Lives Matter rioters.

Several conservative members of Congress are also urging the Justice Department to investigate Kim Gardner’s conduct, sending the Attorney General a letter on Thursday making the case for oversight of the rogue Democrat prosecutor.

Gardner’s office rammed through the charges even after the lead Saint Louis Police detective investigating the incident refused to sign off on a probable cause statement. The Democrat’s subordinate also ordered for the courtroom prop Patricia McCloskey was holding to be reassembled to be a functional firearm.

Sadly, these God-given rights bestowed upon al citizens of the United States were trampled by the McCloskey’s very own local officials… This decision is not only an abuse of power, it is a reckless assault on all citizen’s right to bear arms. 

We urge you and the DOJ to investigate Ms. Gardner’s actions, and the actions of every rogue prosecutor who fails to uphold the rule of law and secure the rights of our citizens.”

The pattern of misconduct on the part of Gardner and her subordinate Chris Hinckley all but guarantee the attempt to ram through a political prosecution of the McCloskeys will end in embarrassment for the Saint Louis prosecutor. Missouri Governor Mike Parson and President Donald Trump have already suggested they’d issue a pardon for the couple, both lawyers, in the event of a legally dubious conviction.

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.
