L.A. City Council Forces Contractors To Reveal Support For Second Amendment

Published

on

Anti-gun interests never rest.

A Los Angeles City Council Committee approved a draft ordinance on February 4, 2019 that will require city contractors to disclose any affiliations they have with the NRA.  Although this ordinance would not ban contractors tied to the NRA from doing business with the city, it still requires them to disclose contracts and sponsorship agreements they have with the Second Amendment group.

This is not the first time organizations like the NRA have been targeted by legacy institutions. Rental car companies like Avis and software companies like Symantec broke ties with the gun organization in the aftermath of the Stoneman Douglas shooting. Now that corporate virtue signaling is becoming the norm, we can expect corporate and municipal entities to pile on to the anti-gun hysteria.

The NRA has been a squishy defender of gun rights, but this is a troubling development for gun organizations nationwide. Such measures could be extended to other pro-gun organizations, and given Los Angeles’ reputation as a political trend setter, we can expect similar ordinances to spread across the nation.

Gun organizations already face significant roadblocks on social media platforms like Facebook where firearm accessory ads have been heavily restricted, and, YouTube, which has demonetized and even banned firearms instruction videos. With gun control gaining more steam at the state level, anti-gunners are hoping for a massive momentum shift on an issue that has been relatively fringe for the past few decades.

Gun culture in the U.S. is currently under fire. The Left knows all too well that pursuing direct gun confiscation is not politically feasible. For that reason, they’ll settle for other alternatives such as the recent L.A. ordinance or corporate gun control. From taking over municipalities to infiltrating the corporate boardroom, the anti-gun Left is making a full court press to make gun control a reality in America.

The 21st century is one of unconventional political tactics.  Politics is no longer confined to just the ballot box. Now it’s being fought at the local and state level, as well in the general cultural and corporate world.

This should be a wake-up call to all pro-gun advocates. The tactics of the 20th century do not have much carryover in to the present. Gun owners must adapt to current circumstances lest they want anti-gun forces to come out on top.

There’s no mercy for those who refuse to adapt.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
