National Gun Registry: Congressional Democrats Latest Anti-Gun Scheme

Published

on

Gun controllers just don’t seem to quit.

Illinois Democrats in both the U.S. House and Senate have just introduced a bill that would establish a federal firearms licensing system.

The Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act would put the clamps on unlicensed gun ownership, while also mandating that people possess a valid firearms license when transferring weapons. On top of that, it requires a universal background check for all firearms purchases and transfers.

Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL), who introduced the House version of this bill, said, “Americans are demanding that Congress take real action to prevent gun violence and we must address this issue head on and do our part to prevent the senseless mass killings and shooting deaths in cities across this nation.”

Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), who introduced a Senate companion to this House bill, added her two cents:

“We owe it to the countless and growing number of firearm violence victims to take         action. I don’t want my daughters to have to grow up in a country that won’t protect them  from firearm violence, which is why I’m proud to join Congressman Rush in this effort     and we will keep pushing until all of America’s children are safe.”

It’s very clear that Illinois Democrats want to bring the same gun laws that have made Illinois one of the most anti-gun states in the country.

This move to bring more Blue State style gun control to the federal level is part of a larger trend that has emerged in the wake of the Parkland and Santa, Fe shootings.

States like Rhode Island have already passed extensive gun control packages which include bump stock bans and “red flag” gun confiscation bills.

But blue states like Rhode Island haven’t been the only victims.

Republican-controlled Florida fell for the anti-gun snake oil when 67 A-Rated Republicans voted for gun control.

Similar to the Fix-NICS compromise at the federal level, these laws were not enough to quench the Democrat’s anti-gun thirst.

They want more than just gun control, they’re aiming for full-blown gun confiscation.

With this recent bill to track all firearms sales, gun controllers in Congress are taking matters into their own hands.

Marketed as a licensing bill, this bill is really a gun registration bill. As every gun owner knows, gun registration is just the first step before gun confiscation.

With the 2018 elections around the corner, Democrats are rallying their base around the issue of gun control.

They are prepared to throw everything but the kitchen sink to achieve their unconstitutional agenda.

Gun owners must remain on guard by holding their politicians accountable in Congress and at the ballot box. Conceding any ground to the gun grabbers could be a death sentence for one of our most cherished rights.

As Thomas Jefferson stated, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”

In times where gun control is gaining steam nationwide, gun owners cannot rest on their laurels.

David Hogg: Self-Appointed Meme War General

I don’t think this is going to go the way he thinks it will.

Published

on

Gun control activist David Hogg has chosen to declare war against the alt-right on Twitter, asking for his supporters to “enlist” in the war alongside him.

What Hogg means by the “alt-right” is unknown. The term, which was originally popularized simply as an alternative to mainstream right-wing politics, generally with more economically nationalist positions, and a populist approach to messaging, has become an umbrella term for Trump supporters to the far-left.

In reality, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Since the election of Donald Trump, the alt-right has radically shifted to the fringes of far-right, and occasionally far-left positions. Richard Spencer, who has taken up the mantle as a leader in the alt-right has openly endorsed socialism, and come out against free speech, positions that many in the originally popularized meaning of “alt-right” would strongly oppose.

Some of the first memes submitted to Hogg in the “meme war” against the alt-right show that this war isn’t just against the alt-right, but against anyone with right of center opinions.

But while a few of Hogg’s supporters launched some low-quality memes in response to his call, many on the right fired back with some dank memes of their own.

Hogg’s meme war against the right probably isn’t going to go the way he thinks it will. The right are experts at meme warfare, which many believe caused them to win the 2016 election for Donald Trump.

The left has trouble creating quality memes because memes have always been at least somewhat provocative. It is hard to be provocative when your entire base spends half their time whining about “trigger warnings” and “micro-aggressions.”

I’m sure the “veterans” of the 2016 meme war that election Donald Trump are looking forward to taking on General David Hogg of the “Tide Pod” division in this war.

An Open Letter To Kyle Kashuv: Don’t Support New Gun Laws

The fact of the matter is: no new gun regulation will stop future shootings.

Published

on

Kyle,

First, I want to let you know how much I admire your bravery. Standing up against your fellow classmates, who became anti-gun media giants overnight surely wasn’t an easy thing to do.

As a die-hard Second Amendment supporter, it was great to see somebody standing up for what I believe in against the David Hoggs of the world. Despite the left’s attempts to shut you up and slander you, your words have only become more powerful.

But despite my admiration for you, my support for the Second Amendment comes first. That’s why I wanted to explain to you why your recent support for “red flag” gun bills is extremely dangerous. I wanted to write to you after seeing this recent Tweet:

I have written in the past about the dangers of these bills, oftentimes dubbed “Gun Violence Restraining Orders,” or “Extreme Risk Protection Orders.” That’s why I wanted to write directly to you explaining my position, not to attack you, but rather to educate you about the other side of this issue.

As I’m sure you already know, “Red Flag” bills operate by allowing a relative, family member, or in some cases, an acquaintance to petition a court to remove firearms from an individual they believe to be a danger to themselves or others. The laws do include a process to allow individuals effected to prove their innocence and regain their firearms, but that process is where the problem with this legislation lies.

That is the reason that pro-gun groups like Gun Owners of America and the National Association for Gun Rights are opposed to these measures. Our right to keep and bear arms is a natural right protected by the Second Amendment in our Constitution. Also included in that Constitution is the right to due process.

Is it really due process if a vindictive, or just radically anti-gun relative convinces a judge you are crazy, therefore allowing police to ransack your home and take away your guns? Because that is the reality of these bills. Once your guns are taken away, the burden of proof is on YOU to convince a court you should be allowed to have your guns back.

I know a likely reason for your support of these bills comes down to the fact they could have been used against the monster that shot up your school. But in reality, it probably would not have been used in his case.

Police had every justification in the world to take away Nikolas Cruz’s guns. Between the police and school disciplinary officials, they came into contact with him almost one hundred times. There were also multiple occasions where Cruz could have been charged with a felony, resulting in his guns being taken away.

But the reason none of his offenses prevented him from owning a gun comes down to an Obama-era regulation designed to protect young offenders. If just one of his major offenses had been placed on his criminal record, he would not have been able to purchase the firearm he used.

The fact of the matter is: no new gun regulation will stop future shootings. If you are serious about preventing shootings, which I know you are, you must focus on the core of the issue. The real problem is gun free zones. As long as we allow the children of our nation to spend their days in gun free zones, the shootings will continue.

Research compiled by the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that over 98% of U.S. mass shootings from the 1950’s until 2016 have occurred in gun free zones. Rep. Thomas Massie has filed a bill to end these gun free killing zones. I can’t tell you how to spend your time, but I believe you would be much better served using it to advocate for his bill, which would repeal the Gun Free School Zones Act.

I hope you take my words not as criticism, but as advice from a friend. Thank you for all that you do, Kyle.

Oath Keepers Offering A Free Security Detail To Gun Toting Kent State Grad After Death Threats

Second Amendment supporters stand together

Published

on

After graduating from Kent State University, Kaitlin Bennett showed her support for the Second Amendment by carrying an AR-10 rifle on the schools campus for her graduation photos.

Needless to say, that perfectly legal act put her in the cross hairs of the anti-gun left, who attacked her mercilessly. Among those attacks contained a large number of death threats, as Bennett pointed out on Twitter.

In response to those death threats, Oath Keepers, a group made up of both current and former law enforcement and military members offered to protect her for free.

“We feel honor bound, as a matter of duty, to step up in direct support of this brave young patriot, by offering our protection, free of charge,” the group stated on Facebook. “We have highly trained and professional retired police officers and Special Forces veterans who are standing by to serve on this volunteer detail if she accepts our offer.”

Oath Keepers have been around since  2009, and are most known for protecting business owners facing the threat of looters during rioting in Ferguson, MO. Their states goal is “to fulfill the oath all military and police take to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'”

This is a great example of how Second Amendment advocates will stand together in the face of opposition. Bennett is a perfectly law-abiding American who simply wanted to show her support for the Second Amendment, and the anti-gun left was having none of it.
