Score another victory for political correctness.

On July 2, 2019, the Charlottesville City Council voted to remove Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, April 13, as a holiday.

It has now been replaced with Freedom and Liberation Day as a holiday, which will take place on March 3.

Adding Freedom and Liberation Day as a holiday was approved in a separate vote and received unanimous support from the city council.

Since the Charlottesville rally of 2017, cities across the nation have been removing confederate monuments left and right.

However, many conservatives’ fears are now being confirmed as the politically correct Left is targeting the Founding Fathers and other non-Confederate figures in their efforts to erase American history.

Even at the University of Virginia, located in Charlottesville, leftist activists want to remove a statue of George Rogers Clark, a general of the early days of the American Republic. The Charlottesville city council is even considering the removal of a Lewis & Clark statue as well.

This latest news shows that PC culture is moving in full force.

The Left is setting their sights on some of the most cherished figures in American history like Thomas Jefferson.

The PC floodgates are now open and it’s only a matter of time before movements like these make their way to red states.

American history is hanging in the balance.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
