Benchmade Knife Company has received a ton of flack on the Internet lately.
Second Amendment Daily reports that after the knife company was helping local police destroy firearms, gun owners gave the company a piece of their mind.
This news went viral when the Oregon City Police Department released a series of Facebook photos depicting a shotgun and an SKS being chopped into pieces.
The police department’s post read, “Thank you Benchmade Knife Company for assisting us today by cutting up guns that are ready to be destroyed.”
Uproar from social media and gun forums forced the Oregon City Police Department to quickly take down the post.
Oregon City Police Department attempted to do damage control in light of this outrage with a follow-up post:
Benchmade then tried to rationalize their decision to help destroy firearms in a post of their own:
“Benchmade is aware of the recent post from our local Oregon City Police Department.
We apologize for the confusion and concern that this post created. These were firearms that the Oregon City Police Department had to destroy in alignment with their policies. Oregon City Police requested the use of specialty equipment within the Benchmade facility to follow these requirements, and as a supporting partner of our local police force, we obliged the request.
Benchmade is a proud and unwavering supporter of both law enforcement and Second Amendment rights. These are commitments that we do not take lightly and will continue to support well into the future.
When asked for clarity from Oregon City Police Department, Chief Jim Band made the following statement: “When property is to be destroyed, it is the policy of the Oregon City Police Department to destroy property, including firearms, in accordance to our procedures and ORS. The Oregon City Police Department does not sell firearms.”
However, the rabbit hole goes deeper….
A report from OpenSecrets.org shows that Benchmade has been donating to anti-gun Democrats in recent elections.
The most notable recipient of Benchmade contributions was U.S. Congressman Kurt Schrader (D-OR). Schrader is currently one of the co-sponsors of H.R. 8, this year’s Universal Background Check bill, a bill that is at the top of Nancy Pelosi’s wish list.
Oregon is one of the recent gun control battleground states. The state took a sharp anti-gun direction in 2017 by passing red flag gun confiscation orders. However, Oregon gun owners made their presence felt in 2018 by keeping “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines bans from going on the ballot, while also approving Second Amendment Preservation Ordinances in eight counties.
Benchmade’s gun control gaffe is just the latest trend of corporate virtue signaling in favor of gun control. However, these moves have proven to be detrimental for Dick’s Sporting Goods, as reports showed a decrease in sales for the outdoor company.
We can expect the same for Benchmade’s sales after this gun control incident.
Hitting anti-gun companies’ wallets is how Second Amendment supporters can keep corporate gun control at bay.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
