Message to President Trump: Listen to Your Son, Hands Off Firearm Suppressors

Published

Is Donald Trump considering new control measures?

Following the Virginia Beach shooting, the anti-gun Left made its usual rounds by calling for gun control.

But things got interesting when reports found that the perpetrator, DeWayne Craddock, used two legally purchased .45 handguns to commit this atrocity. On top of that, one of those handguns was equipped with a suppressor.

Uncharacteristically, President Donald Trump criticized current suppressor policy saying that “I don’t like them at all” when asked about how this situation should be tackled.

Naturally, this has evoked speculation that Trump may be considering a suppressor ban.

Trump’s Justice Department already banned bump stocks last year, which has caused certain gun rights activists to go to the courts to battle this infringement.

Ironically, Trump’s son, Don Jr. made a video in 2016 in which he fired a pistol equipped with a suppressor.

Don Jr. is a big advocate of suppressors and justifies their de-regulation for safety reasons. He contends that without them, a shooter’s hearing could be put at risk. Suppressors are currently under tight control of the National Firearms Act.

In recent years, there have been several efforts to deregulate suppressors through the introduction of the Hearing Protection Act in Congress. However, with the current make-up of Congress, these measures appear to be dead in the water.

Nevertheless, President Trump should listen to his son and maintain a hands-off policy when it comes to suppressors.

The topic of suppressors and silencers is rather heated and filled with emotion. In times when the media seek to sensationalize gun violence and use misinformation to advance their civilian disarmament agenda, facts are desperately needed.

Certain groups like Hunting Mark have worked to educate the public on these accessories and advocate for their deregulation.  More information on the basics of silencers can be found here.

This incident will likely not be the last attempt that gun grabbers will exploit in order to ban the use of suppressors.

Why is Justin Amash Endorsing Social Engineering?

Published

on

On February 13, 2020, Michigan Congressman Justin Amash endorsed the idea of establishing an Equal Rights Amendment.

Under the ERA, the government would allegedly guarantee equal legal rights for all Americans regardless of their sex.

Amash tweeted, “Equality before the law is fundamental to the Rule of Law and foundational to liberty. The Constitution exists to protect our liberty, so I have long advocated including a federal equal protection clause in the Constitution.”

He added, “Drafting a new nondiscrimination amendment would allow us to enshrine our modern understanding of equal protection as preventing all arbitrary discrimination by government, and it would allow states to consider the proposal without being under a constitutionally dubious deadline.”

Amash’s support for the ERA is indicative of the leftward lurch he taken as evidenced by supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump and voting for legislation that would have funded transgender surgeries for members of the military.

The ERA is one of the biggest pet projects of the cultural Left.

They were able to score major victories by establishing forced integration, the 1965 Immigration Act, and affirmative action throughout the 1960s.

However, they did fail trying to ratify the ERA during the 1970s. But that has not stopped in recent times.

Now the Left has a new ally in Amash, who used to be a solid libertarian conservative.

Ratifying the ERA will only consolidate the managerial state’s hold over the private affairs of Americans and usher in more social radicalism via public administration.

Given Amash’s liberty background, he should think twice before endorsing the ERA.
