No Compromise Gun Org Sues Washington State for Anti-Gun Ballot Initiative

Published

on

Jordan Stein, Gun Owners of America’s Director of Communication, announced on August 19, 2020 that GOA, its legal arm Gun Owners Foundation (GOF), and plaintiff Kerry Stone are legally challenging Washington State’s civilian disbarment initiative, I-1639.

The ballot initiative in question was mired by a suspicious signature gathering process. It established enhanced background checks, stronger training requirements, age limitations, and waiting periods to purchase firearms, among other anti-gun measures.

This law is a clear Second Amendment infringement, which GOA noted:

The exercise of no other constitutional right (or even so-called constitutional right) is subject to a similar requirement.  Women are not required to watch videos of babies being aborted, and be counseled about the benefits of adoption, before obtaining an abortion on demand. Columnists, Twitter posters, and videographers are not educated by the government as to the maleffects of “fake news,” “swatting,” and child pornography, before being permitted to engage in protected speech.  And pastors are not indoctrinated as to the detriments of religious extremism and violence before being permitted to preach sermons to their congregations.  Yet the annual cost to human life resulting from the misuse of each of these First Amendment activities far exceeds the death toll from the misuse of firearms.

Washington is one of the most anti-gun states in the country. It received a ranking of 38th place according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s Best States for Gun Owner’s rankings.

Second Amendment activists in Washington State will likely have to become creative in their activism as evidenced by some activists turning to sanctuary counties as a means of resisting statewide gun control.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
