ICONIC: Kentucky Gun Owners Exercise Their Second Amendment Rights Inside the State Capitol

These men are boldly demonstrating their rights!

Published

on

Gun owners in Kentucky made a bold stand for freedom on Friday when they converged on their state Capitol building in Frankfort.

While Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam made the area around his state Capitol a 2nd Amendment-free zone, the patriots of Kentucky actually entered the Capitol building with their firearms, which resulted in some iconic and inspiring photographs.

The Louisville Courier Journal reported on the successful rally of constitutionalists who are making it clear that their rights will be infringed upon no more.

“We can’t just whittle away one little piece here, one little piece there,” said Calen Studler of Frankfort, who is running for the state senate. “Then the (U.S. Constitution) doesn’t mean what it says anymore.”

We Are KY Gun Owners put on the rally, and it was headlined by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), the liberty-minded Congressman whose voting record on gun rights is among the best in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“If you can die for your country, you can buy a gun,” said Massie, who recently introduced legislation that would lower the legal age for buying a firearm from 21 to 18 nationwide.

Other people who spoke to the audience included Dick Heller, who was the plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) that reaffirmed individual gun rights, and Republican state lawmaker Savannah Maddox.

“Be vigilant,” Heller said to the fiery audience. “Don’t let the comrade governor turn Kentucky into Baltimore, Detroit, Venezuela … Chicago.”

“We see what’s happening in Virginia and we may say to ourselves, ‘That won’t be us here in Kentucky,’” Maddox said. “How many years are we away from being like Virginia? It can happen just that easily, if folks just like us are not willing to stand up and do exactly what you are doing here today.”

The gun owners are vigilant regarding infringements on the 2nd Amendment that have been introduced in the state legislature. New Democrat Governor Andy Beshear is on the record stating that he supports red flag gun confiscation, and the constitutional activists are steadfastly dedicated to not letting that happen.

“We’re watching,” said Tony Wheatley, a leader of the group We Are KY Gun Owners. “Not only for the gun issues but for all constitutional issues that come up.”

“It’s kind of like the Declaration of Independence — it was basically a letter to the king saying we’re tired of what you’re trying to feed us,” Wheatley added. “Same thing here. It’s symbolic. We’re listening. We want changes.”

The free men of Kentucky are making a statement that they will not let their state become like Virginia, where Democrats have taken over and made a complete mockery of the Bill of Rights.

New Mexico Will Be Newest State to Enact Unconstitutional ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation

The 2nd Amendment is under attack like never before.

Published

on

The state of New Mexico will be the next state to enact red flag laws that will strip due process rights from gun owners and confiscate their weapons based on an edict from a judge.

The New Mexico state house approved a red flag bill by a 39-31 vote last week. Having previously been passed in the state senate by a 22-20 margin earlier this month, the legislation will be placed on the desk of Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who is a massive proponent of red flag laws and expected to enthusiastically sign the bill into law.

“We have an obligation to every single New Mexican, every single family, every single child that we do everything in our power that can provide just that additional layer of safety and public support,” Lujan Grisham said about her support of red flag laws.

The legislation was not passed unanimously by all Democrats in the state house, as legislators Harry Garcia of Grants, Raymundo Lara of Chamberino, Willie Madrid of Chaparral, Rudy Martinez of Bayard, Patricio Ruiloba of Albuquerque, Joseph Sanchez of Alcalde and Candie Sweetser of Deming joined Republicans in opposing the bill.

New Mexico will be the 18th state, along with Washington D.C., to pass this unconstitutional measure that eviscerates multiple amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Counties are passing resolutions to urge Gov. Lujan Grisham not to sign the bill into law.

“Senate Bill 5 and House Bill 7 make criminals of innocent citizens and deprive them of due process of law by making it a criminal offense for gun-owners living with a person made subject to a Red Flag order to not secure their guns from that person, even if the gun owner had no knowledge of the Red Flag order or had no control over another person’s actions,” a resolution passed in Lincoln County states.

In addition to Lincoln County, the counties of Otero and Torrence have passed resolutions condemning red flag laws. Doña Ana County passed a resolution in favor of the anti-constitutional measures.

Big League Politics has highlighted some of the worst abuses stemming from red flag laws that have occurred throughout the country, including a military veteran who lost his weapons due to a case of mistaken identity in Florida; a doctor snitching on a patient who was suing him so his guns would be confiscated in New Jersey; an Iraq War veteran who lost his guns after protesting the governor while wearing a MAGA hat in Oregon; and a man who lost his life when police came to confiscate his guns in Maryland.

Sadly, it will not be long before these kind of heinous abuses come to the state of New Mexico. Lujan Grisham is expected to sign the legislation into law in the upcoming days.
