The city of Needles, California has become the first Second Amendment sanctuary city in the Golden State.
This is an unprecedented move in one of America’s most anti-gun states.
Needles is located in eastern San Bernardino County along the Arizona state line and is miles away from the Nevada border.
Unlike other parts of the state, gun rights are important to people living in this city in the Mojave Desert.
Mayor Jeff Williams recently sent a strong message to elected officials in Sacramento by approving this pro-Second Amendment resolution.
“The City Council wanted our community to know that we support their Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms,” the mayor declared in a statement June 15 after city council members unanimously passed the gun sanctuary resolution.
Williams added, “While we recognize that all lawful gun owners are responsible for ensuring they are compliant with state and federal gun laws, we also recognize that the State of California cannot adopt laws that impair the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment.”
This could be a pivotal moment in the current sheriff/county revolt taking place across the nation.
This move could possibly lead to other rural counties in California revolting against their anti-gun overlords in Sacramento.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
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.
