The NRA Caves to Bloomberg, Scraps Due Process

In a move that shocked many gun rights supporters, the National Rifle Association came out vocally in support of Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs), calling them “Risk Protection Orders.” 



In a move that shocked many gun rights supporters, the National Rifle Association came out vocally in support of Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs), calling them “Risk Protection Orders.”

While their use of the term “Risk Protection Orders” may not seem significant to some, it shows just how carefully the NRA had to be in making the decision to support this measure. “Gun Violence Restraining Order” has been the term popularized by anti-gun groups like the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety, which effectively do the same thing that the NRA is pushing.

GRVOs operate similarly to a temporary restraining order, which allows a court to issue a protective order in situations where a person or business needs to be temporarily protected by an individual. A GRVO would use much of the same criteria used to gain these protective orders to allow individuals to petition a court to remove guns from an individual they believe is a threat to themselves or others.

The “Risk Protection Orders” promoted by the NRA in a recent ad are nothing more than GRVOs with a different name. Even David French, the NRA’s number one cheerleader on this issue, acknowledges that fact in an article he published to the National Review.

Anti-gun groups like Everytown for Gun Safety have spent tens of millions of dollars promoting this measure, enacting legislation codifying them into law in 7 states. These states are actively using these measures to take guns from individuals.

The major issue with a GRVO is that it does not give the individual having their guns taken away the ability to challenge the ruling until the guns have already been taken away. A rogue anti-gun judge hearing a case from a vindictive family member is all it could take to have someone’s guns confiscated. A vital part of due process is having the ability to defend yourself. GRVOs remove your ability to do that.

HYPOCRISY: Anti-2A Sheriff Scott Israel Hires Same Attorney as Parkland Shooter Gun Salespeople



A new revelation has emerged in the story of embattled Sheriff Scott J. Israel of the Broward County, FL Sheriff’s Office.

Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer dropped more bombshell news in an interview with 850WFTL this morning, on the heels of her report that Israel will be removed as Sheriff next week.

Not only is Israel inept, he is also a hypocrite.

Israel, who has taken an anti-Second Amendment stance since the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 dead, has retained former FBI Agent and Criminal Defense attorney Stuart Kaplan to defend him.

LISTEN to the explosive interview:

In a massive conflict of interest, Kaplan is also defending Michael and Lisa Morrison, owners of Sunrise Tactical Supply, the gun store that allegedly sold suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz the AR-15 he used in the massacre.

Furthermore, Kaplan is a CNN contributor and guest.

Kaplan addressed the media with fellow defense attorney Douglas Rudman regarding their defense of the gun store owners on February 15:

Not only has Israel hired the same attorney as Sunrise Tactical, but Kaplan’s tenure in the FBI presents another clear conflict of interest. Kaplan speaks as an expert on the FBI regularly for CNN. He has an undoubtable interest in defending the nation’s top law enforcement agency. Yet he will be representing Israel and Sunrise Tactical in potential lawsuits that could pit him directly against the FBI.

Loomer reported this week that Florida Governor Rick Scott has called for the FBI Director Christopher Wray’s resignation over the agency’s handling of the Parkland shooting. Both the FBI and Broward Sheriff’s office were warned multiple times – the Sheriff’s office 35 times – about Cruz’s violent behavior. The negligence of both organizations has been widely discussed.

Loomer wrote:

“During the IG’s testimony last week, FBI director Christopher Wray was asked about the Parkland school shooting. When asked, Wray declined to answer any questions about the shooting and Sheriff Israel, citing that it was an active FBI investigation. Following the Parkland shooting, Governor Scott called for Director Wray to resign over the FBI’s failure to properly investigate Nikolas Cruz, 19, the school shooter whose plans to carry out a school shooting were reported to the FBI twice prior to the shooting on Valentine’s Day.

‘We constantly promote ‘see something, say something,’ and a courageous person did just that to the FBI. And the FBI failed to act. ‘See something, say something’ is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow through from law enforcement. The FBI Director needs to resign,’ Governor Scott said.”

Loomer Passage Ends.

The Sheriff has been particularly outspoken about the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, the same one used by Nikolas Cruz during the Parkland shooting and purchased from Sunrise Tactical supply.

“It produces great carnage. It’s a devastating weapon,” Israel said on MSNBC on February 15, the day after the shooting.

Loomer was quick to nail the Sheriff for his hypocrisy on Twitter:

“[Scott Israel] wants you to know that he’s SO ANTI GUN & ANTI AR15 that he personally hired Criminal defense attorney Stuart Kaplan, who is also *coincidentally* a former FBI agent who’s also representing the gun store owners who sold the #Parkland shooter an AR15,” she wrote.

Hunter Pollack, brother of Meadow Pollack who was slain in the shooting, also weighed in on Twitter.

“The [Broward Sheriff] who begs for gun control, is being represented by the lawyer who represents the gun store owner that sold 18-1958 his gun. So much corruption, conflict of interest? ,” he said.

It is also noteworthy that 850WFTL ambushed Loomer, failing to disclose to her that Kaplan would be co-hosting this morning’s episode of the radio show.
