Gun Rights Group Meets with White House Staff to Warn Trump About Gun Confiscation Bill

Published

on

In an email directed to their members, the American Firearms Coalition reported that they met with members of White House legislative staff to voice concerns about “Red Flag Gun Seizure” legislation.

They informed the White House staffers that “red flag” laws are a “a danger to gun owners and the Second Amendment rights of all Americans, but also a political danger to the President in 2020, who made disturbing comments about this subject in the days after last year’s Parkland shooting.”

The no compromise gun rights group left the meeting urging White House staff to pass their letter to President.

The gun rights group claims that while they were in meetings with White House staff, “the National Rifle Association was working overtime on Capitol Hill to cut a deal on this issue.”

According to AFC and their sources in DC, “Senator Lindsey Graham and anti-gun radical Senator Dick Blumenthal of Connecticut are doing everything they can to present a “bipartisan” piece of legislation that the President could sign.”

They also highlighted how Senator Marco Rubio’s “Red Flag Gun Seizure” bill “was draconian to say the least.”

Going back to the Graham-Blumenthal bill, AFC claims that this red flag iteration would “pay states tens of millions of your taxpayer dollars if they pass “Red Flag Gun Seizure” bills in their respective states.”

In the no compromise group’s view, “red flag” legislation is unacceptable. They argue that “if we gun owners give an inch on this, one day the anti-gunners on Capitol Hill will take an entire mile, leaving our Second Amendment rights on the chopping block of a liberal judge.”

AFC plans on unleashing a massive petition campaign against this bill and will also visit White House staff again to reiterate their opposition.

Red flag laws allow judges to confiscate an individual’s guns for simply being perceived as a “threat”, in complete disregard to due process.

During the last year, red flag laws have been enacted in states like Colorado and Florida.

Red flag laws have considerable bipartisan support.

As mentioned before, even Republicans like Lindsey Graham are drafting their own red flag legislation which has drawn criticism from other gun groups like Gun Owners of America.

With a divided congress, most gun control legislation will have a hard time moving forward.

However, red flags may have found a new home in Washington, D.C.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks. 

Can Americans actually grow a spine for once?
