Is firearms registration coming to Pennsylvania?
According to a report from John Crump at Ammoland.com, Pennsylvania Democrats have introduced HB 768, the Firearms Registration Act. The Democrats introducing this bill are Mary Louise Isaacson, Angel Cruz, and Mary Jo Daley.
The bill was recently referred to the Judiciary Committee.
Under the Firearms Registration Act, gun owners would be forced to register their firearms with the Pennsylvania State Police. Then, they would have to provide law enforcement the make, model, and serial numbers of all their firearms.
On top of that, applicants must also submit an application with fingerprints, two photos that are no older than 30 days, and be subject to a background check for each firearm that they own.
And this is only the tip of the iceberg. Gun owners must also hand over to the Pennsylvania State Police their home and work addresses, telephone number, social security number, date of birth, age, sex, and citizenship. To put this in perspective, these requirements are stiffer than the requirements needed for voting.
In the case that the State Police rejects a person’s application, they will then have ten days to appeal this decision. In the meantime, gun owners must hand over their firearms to the State Police within three days of receiving the rejection notification. If an individual fails to appeal the decision within the allotted ten-day timeframe, they are then stripped of their gun rights.
There is reason to believe that the enforcement of this law will be difficult for the Pennsylvania State Government to carry out. Other states like Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York have made registration and ban attempts with mixed results.
Nevertheless, anti-gun forces are relentless. Since Las Vegas and Parkland, gun controllers have worked frenetically at the state level to advance gun control. Legislation like the Firearms Registration Act function as trial balloons to gauge the public’s reaction to radical forms of gun control.
Win or lose, the anti-gun Left uses these schemes to acclimate the populace into casually discussing extreme gun control, and eventually trying to make these discussions a political reality.
For this reason, gun owners must always remain on guard and be ready to derail these schemes at a moment’s notice.
Is Sherlock Holmes About to be Cancelled?
Will Sherlock Holmes be the next victim of the woke purges?
According to a report from Express, certain literary experts believe that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote “crass racist descriptions” in his novels about Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle was the author of the world famous Sherlock Holmes novel.
Doyle had a statue built in Edinburgh built in Edinburgh across the house Doyle was born in.
In one of Doyle’s short stories, The Adventure of the Three Gables, he wrote about an occasion in which Holmes stared at the “hideous mouth” of a “huge negro” and informed the “savage”: “I don’t like the smell of you.”
Similarly, in The Sign of the Four, the second novel which featured Sherlock Holmes in 1890, Doyle describes the indigenous people of the Andaman Islands off the coast of India as “naturally hideous, having large, misshapen heads.”
Dr. Merrick Burrow, a professor of English at the University of Huddersfield said to The Times of Scotland: “Especially in the early Sherlock Holmes stories, there are crass racist descriptions.”
“There is no question that the language used to describe people of various ethnicities is inflammatory, offensive and insensitive by any contemporary standards. The stories are almost all narrated by Dr Watson and there is a racist framework of descriptions of immigrants in negative terms,” Burrow remarked.
Burrow asserted that the author should not be judged by contemporary standards. She emphasized that Doyle’s “crass characterizations were fairly typical of his time [The Victorian Era].
He continued: “There is a massive difference between someone who was a slave trader or waged military campaigns and someone who wrote books.”
Jonathan McCafferty, the president of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, said there was “lamentable instances of language” in Doyle’s works.
Such concerns over Doyle’s alleged racism come in a time when Black Lives Matter protests have flared up in American and all over the world.
Such uproar has given the radical iconoclasts the opportunity to call for the destruction of Western history.
Doyle’s works are among the many pieces of European history that are fair game for destruction.
What we’re witnessing across the West is what happens when political correctness is allowed to run rampant.
