Dan Crenshaw’s recent flirtation with red flag gun confiscation laws might not be so coincidental after all.
BLP reported on Crenshaw’s advocacy for pre-crime legislation such red flag laws and The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act following the El Paso and Dayton shootings.
Now photo evidence has emerged of Crenshaw previously meeting with the staunchly anti-gun organization Moms Demand Action to discuss red flag laws and universal background checks legislation back in February.
Moms Demand Action is notorious for its advocacy of bans on so-called “assault weapons”, universal background checks, and red flag gun confiscation orders. It has used the clever label of “gun safety” to market its intrusive gun control policies.
The gun control group has also been able to pressure corporate entities into embracing certain anti-gun policies and shift the culture in a more anti-gun direction.
Crenshaw’s meeting with a known enemy of gun rights suggests that he had plans of introducing some variant of gun control legislation from the start. It was only a matter of political circumstances (shootings in this case) for him to come out and justify some form of government encroachment.
Lindsey Graham is already working to move red flag bills yet again. Additionally, Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey is resurrecting his failed universal background check bill from 2013. All in all, the chances of gun control coming to a vote in Congress are increasing by the day.
The more Republicans concede ground on the issue of gun control, the more likely the Left will increase its demands for stronger legislation.
This is one game that the GOP should not play if it wants to preserve its constituents’ Second Amendment rights.
Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
