Published

In Greenville, Mississippi about 20 police officers arrived at the King James Bible Baptist Church.

On April 8, 2020, when these officers showed up, they threated to give citations to the pastor and the congregants.

This is the second consecutive day that the city’s police departments has been called to shutdown “drive-in” church services.

On April 9, Charles Hamilton, the pastor of that church, appeared on the Todd Starnes Radio Show to give his side of the story.

He was preparing for a night service when he then saw police officers quickly enter the parking lot.

“Police officers messing with the church,” the pastor commented on a Facebook Live video. “What has happened to America?”

The video depicts several police officers warning the pastor that church members would be cited if they didn’t leave. Another police officer informed the pastor that his rights could be stripped

“I’m a good citizen here. I’m a pastor,” he said. “We ain’t got no crack house. We ain’t got no drugs. We ain’t got nothing going on here but preaching the word of God.”

“They are here messing with the church, messing with the pastor. Who’s patrolling the streets where the real crime is,” the pastor inquired.

The police were implementing city orders that instructed churches to immediately shut down and stop celebrating drive-in-services.

The police were enforcing orders from city leaders who told churches to shut their doors and stop holding drive-in services.

In times of crises like the Wuhan Virus pandemic, politicians will use government bodies to infringe on basic liberties such as the freedom of assembly.

Even in a conservative state like Mississippi, petty despots at the local level will infringe on fundamental rights.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
