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.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
