The Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner was stopped by police and nearly disarmed during a confusion on state grounds following interim senator and former agriculture commissioner Cindy Hyde-Smith’s documented push to ban firearms on state capitol property.
‘”We, in my situation we had a reserve deputy who didn’t know what the law was. So he came up to me on state property and tried to search me and take my gun. And I said, no you’re not,” Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner Andy Gipson told Big League Politics in an exclusive interview.
“I think it’s a matter of education, some law enforcement officials out there might not know what the law is. It’s a constant battle to stand up for our Second Amendment freedoms,” Gipson stated without condemning Hyde-Smith.
BLP reported: An appointed U.S. Senator from Mississippi who filled the seat of retired Sen. Thad Cochran and claims to be a Republican, once sought permission to randomly search fairgoers for guns during her tenure as State Commissioner of Agriculture.
“Your letter requests our office’s opinion on the following issues:” wrote the Mississippi Attorney General’s office in response to Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith’s request. “Can the MFC and the Department prohibit the carrying of weapons, concealed or not concealed, on the Mississippi State Fairgrounds Complex and at properties of the Department, including but not limited to the Mississippi Farmers’ Market and the Mississippi Agriculture & Forestry Museum, by posting signage prohibiting the carrying of a weapon?”
In case that request was denied, Hyde-Smith suggested random searches of patrons of the fairgrounds for weaponry. In the end, both requests were denied by the Attorney General.
“You also ask our opinion about other procedures that might be deemed to be random searches of individuals entering the gates at the State Fairgrounds Complex,” the letter says. The issue is only answerable by reference to federal law and cases construing the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.”
The letter was first obtained by Mississippi Conservative Daily.
The Fourth Amendment protects United States citizens against unlawful searches and seizures. In response to Hyde-Smith’s attempted gun grab, the State Attorney General’s office advised her that random searches and seizures were a matter of federal law too complex for them to assess.
Hyde-Smith is a former Democrat who once occupied a State Senate seat in Mississippi. She supported Hillary R. Clinton for president in 2008. During her tenure as a State Senator from 2010-2012, she switched her party affiliation from Democrat to Republican, knowing that it would benefit her in seeking national office in a red state.
But she has held onto her Democrat roots.
“Sean Parker, billionaire founder of Napster, the online file sharing service, and early investor in Facebook, has donated $250,000 to the Victory Fund PAC, aimed at getting Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) elected, according to Pro Publica.
Parker was a large Hillary Clinton donor, too. According to the New York Times, he “gave nearly $300,000 to a joint fund-raising committee for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and dozens of state Democratic parties.””
BLP Passage Ends.
Parker is known for his anti-Second Amendment stance, and for using his deep pockets to promote politicians who are weak on gun rights.
“He gave $250,000 to a gun control super political action committee led by former Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., and more than that to help incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. — a supporter of gun rights — fend off a Tea Party challenger,” according to San Francisco Gate.
Considering Hyde-Smith has a long history of fighting against gun rights, it is fitting that Parker would support her.
Hyde-Smith faces State Senator Chris McDaniels (R-Ellisville), and two Democrats in a special non-partisan election on November 6.
“Senator Chris McDaniel has been a rock-solid supporter of the rights of gun owners, wrote Mississippi Conservative Daily. “Not only has he authored pro-gun legislation in the Mississippi Senate, he has never, not a single time, supported any law or regulation to curtail, in any way, the rights of Mississippians to keep and bear arms.”
Smith & Wesson Stepping Up Production to Meet Record Setting Astronomical Demand for New Guns
They’re stepping up production.
One of the biggest gun manufacturers in the United States is pledging to step up gun production as demand for new firearms soars to astronomical proportions. Smith & Wesson is pledging to boost their manufacturing to “maximum capacity” to meet unprecedented demand.
Gun sales in 2020 have crushed the records set in any previous year by a hefty margin, with the combination of the coronavirus and nationwide race riots aided and abetted by the Democratic Party serving to convince millions of Americans who have never owned guns before that they need to arm themselves.
“As we’ve seen before during these surge periods, these results reflect that despite our record numbers in market share growth, consumer demand for our products during the quarter still exceeded our internal manufacturing capacity levels,” said Mark Smith, CEO of the firearms company that was founded in 1852, in a call on Thursday. “We’re continuing to ramp up…. We’re going to go to maximum capacity.”
The company moved almost 600,000 guns from a period between May and July, smashing its records and depleting its existing inventory of newly manufactured guns.
“When we get into these surge environments like this, and as you can see from the [gun background check numbers] we’ve never seen one quite this high, the demand in the industry just outstrips the industry’s ability to supply,” Smith said. “And we’re no different. You can look at the inventory numbers from us and from some of the other firearms, retailers, and manufacturers, and I think we’re just out of inventory.”
Elevating existing manufacturing levels could prove critical to lowering surging prices for firearms, as retailers are unable to match demand. Ammunition continues to sell for record-setting prices, signaling a need for ammunition manufacturers to meet sky-high demand as well.
Smith and Wesson manufacturers a wide variety of popular civilian firearms, including AR-15 style rifles, a multitude of pistols and revolvers, and .22 rimfire rifles.
