Texas politicians are lining up to sell out the 2nd Amendment, as Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, Fort Worth Police Chief Ed Kraus, and Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo took the stage at the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ press conference on Monday to endorse gun control.
“The 911 calls don’t come into the Senate, they don’t come into the Congress, they come into the police chiefs and mayors,” Acevedo said. “It’s not the Congress that shows up. By the time they get there, the blood has been cleaned up and the bodies have been removed.”
Acevedo, Price, and Kraus are endorsing universal background checks, which would give gun grabbers in Washington D.C. a list of firearm owners to profile, and “red flag” laws to eviscerate due process and allow for the revocation of gun rights based on judicial action.
“We need the federal government to get involved in this,” Price said. “What Chief (Kraus) needs is a database that covers everybody, not just Texas.”
To their great shame, Republican leaders in Texas are fully on board with these gun-grabbing bureaucrats.
Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick have already sold their state’s gun owners out in the wake of last month’s mass shootings. Abbott wants a special legislative session “immediately” to pass gun control, and Patrick claims he is “willing to take an arrow” from the National Rifle Association in order to attack the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
Abbott also signed eight executive orders that set the stage for expansive gun control to be implemented throughout his state last week.
“Texas must achieve several objectives to better protect our communities and our residents from mass shootings,” Abbott said in a press release about his executive action.
The Democrats are happy with their opponents caving on gun control, and are using the momentum as a way to push even further for constitutional infringements.
Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-El Paso) said that unless gun control is passed nationally, there will be “more blood on the streets in Texas, more blood on the hands of those who choose not to take action,” pointing the blame at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in particular.
“Red flag” laws have already resulted in horrifying abuses, including the loss of at least one life. The laws were used in Oregon to rob a pro-Trump marine of his guns in order to protect ANTIFA domestic terrorists, and in Connecticut to disarm a college student after he posted a social media meme deemed offensive by the government. Recent hysteria has made pre-crime a reality in states throughout America, and Texas may be the next to join them.
Demographics have Texas in danger of becoming a blue state in the near future, but with Republicans like Abbott and Patrick who are willing to sell out the 2nd Amendment for political expediency, what difference does it really make?
In Republican-Controlled Wyoming, A Gun Rights Group is Now being Forced to Reveal its Donors
Violation of privacy.
The Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office is cracking down on a pro-Second Amendment organization by forcing it to reveal its donors. This move was spurred by a campaign that Wyoming Gun Owners launched last summer in which it attacked a number of incumbent elected officials in races across the state.
In a letter that the office published on October 14, 2020 Wyoming Gun Owners allegedly did follow the state’s campaign finance law.
The organization pulled off a number victories by unseating incumbent lawmakers last summer and has released advertisement targeting various candidates in the elections on November 3, which includes Riverton Republican Ember Oakley and Democrat Britney Wallesch.
The pro-Second Amendment organization has been around Wyoming politics for some time and publicly disclosed that it is paying for advertisements. However, its lack of registry with the state as either a lobbying organization or a political action committee runs afoul of state guidelines.
“The Secretary of State’s Office has reviewed the advertisements paid for by WYGO and determined that they are clearly electioneering communications,” the letter stated. “As such, WYGO failed to comply with the requirements set forth in Wyo. Stat. § 22-25-106(h).”
It wasn’t until a few months ago that the group’s activities have not been reported within the state government. The Wyoming government cannot initiate the investigation on electioneering activity allegations unless someone files a formal complaint.
An initial complaint was first reported by the Riverton Ranger newspaper earlier this month. It did not gather any further steam because it was lacking in evidence to support the allegations. Subsequently, a second complaint with proper documentation was filed with the state not too long after, which prompted the Secretary of State to take action.
Wyoming Gun Owners now has until November 4 to disclose the names of its donors or be slapped with a $500 fine.
If the group refuses to follow the state’s order, the case will then be kicked to the Wyoming Attorney General, according to secretary of state spokesperson Monique Meese.
“Then we take their advice about what to do going forward,” she stated.
State Senator Anthony Bouchard founded Wyoming Gun Owners almost a decade ago. Nowadays, it is run by various members of the Dorr Family, who operate a network of pro-gun organizations pushing for pro-Second Amendment policies.
Aaron Dorr, Wyoming Gun Owners’ executive director, has had public disputes with elected officials such as Senate Vice President Ogden Driskill, who has repeatedly criticized the organization’s tactics during the 2020 election cycle.
The pro-gun organization bolstered its reputation by killing a firearm reporting bill in 2019 sponsored by former Campbell County Sheriff and current State Representative Bill Pownall. Wyoming Gun Owners ran ads supporting Bill Fortner, Pownall’s opponent. Throughout these ad blasts, Pownall was depicted as anti-gun. Fortner ended up winning in a landslide.
Such a case shows how even Republican governments will go out of their way to prop up incumbents and infringe on the privacy rights of organizations that wish to restore freedoms such as the Second Amendment. Just because politicians have an “R”s beside their name does not guarantee that they will protect individuals’ rights.
