LONE STAR BETRAYAL: More Texas Public Officials are Ready to Sell Out on Gun Rights

The Fort Worth mayor and Texas police chiefs support infringing on the 2nd Amendment.

Published

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?

Nevada Governor Uses Coronavirus Emergency to Illegally Stop Residents From Buying Guns

Assemblyman Jim Marchant is blowing the whistle.

Published

on

Nevada Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak is using the Chinese coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to usurp the unlawful power to stop the sale of firearms.

Sisolak has been unsuccessful in being able to shut down gun shops, which are considered an essential business due to a law passed in 2007 after Hurricane Katrina, so he is attempting to enact gun control through bureaucratic fiat.

Sisolak has effectively crippled gun ownership in Nevada by denying the State Point of Contact to conduct background checks on behalf of Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) gun stores. This means that only concealed permit holders can buy new weapons under the new orders, which only consists of four percent of Nevadans.

He has also banned the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department from giving out new concealed permit licenses to Nevadans, creating another impediment to stop gun ownership during the crisis. A public information officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police has confirmed that “they are acting under orders of the Office of the Governor of Nevada.” Although he cannot legally shut them down, Sisolak is also pressuring gun stores to close by classifying them as “non-essential” hobby shops.

Sisolak’s edicts violate NRS 414.155, The Constitution of the State of Nevada, Article 1, § 11(1) as well as the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

The specific portion of the state constitution that Sisolak is violating with his orders reads as follows:

Pursuant to Amendment II of the Constitution of the United States and Section 11 of Article 1 of the Constitution of the State of Nevada, and notwithstanding any other provision of law, the emergency powers conferred upon the Governor and upon the executive heads or governing bodies of the political subdivisions of this State must not be construed to allow:
1. The confiscation of a firearm from a person unless the person is:
(a) In unlawful possession of the firearm; or
(b) Unlawfully carrying the firearm; or
2. The imposition of additional restrictions as to the lawful possession, transfer, sale, carrying, storage, display or use of:
(a) Firearms;
(b) Ammunition; or
(c) Components of firearms or ammunition.

Assemblyman Jim Marchant, who is running to be the Republican Congressional nominee for District 4 of Nevada, believes that Sisolak must abdicate public office for his intolerable acts.

“I understand that the government must take steps to protect the public when there is a national pandemic, but the law and our constitutional rights are clear,” said Marchant.

“Governor Sisolak has shown he is either incompetent or corrupt. He has violated his oath of office and must resign,” he added.

Sisolak announced his emergency measures during a press conference on Sunday, touting relief for renters as a way to sell his unconstitutional power grab.

“This directive is intended to keep people in their homes at a time where we’re encouraging all Nevadans to stay home, to stay home for Nevada,” Sisolak said.

Sisolak has also made it more difficult for coronavirus patients to access medicines that could potentially save their lives. He has arguably been the Democrat governor guilty of mismanaging the coronavirus crisis the worst at the state level.
