Published

on

The American Firearms Coalition continues to make its presence felt at the NRA national convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The newly-formed Second Amendment group flew a plane over the convention to inform the approximately 80,000 members in attendance of the NRA’s potential sell-out on red flag gun confiscation laws.

Attached to the plane was a banner that read “NRA: Stop Selling Out – STOPREDFLAGS.COM”.

Aaron Dorr, the Executive Director of Iowa Gun Owners, has been leading the charge for AFC’s campaign against red flag gun laws.

On their petition page, AFC points out that red flag laws allow “the states to utilize ex-parte hearings as a part of the process. As you undoubtedly know, this means that the gun owner in question would have no idea that his Second Amendment rights are on the line until the police are at his home with an order to confiscate his firearms.”

Red flag laws have become popular in state legislatures over the past year and are now being considered at the federal level.

BLP has covered the ongoing red flag debate in Congress. Lindsey Graham is the main legislator championing a bipartisan iteration of this bill, which has received harsh criticism from groups like Gun Owners of America.

Despite these warnings, Graham is moving this legislation forward.

The AFC is leading the charge against red flag legislation at the federal level.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
