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.
That same day about two dozen people were fined $500 while attending a “drive-in” prayer service at Temple Baptist Church
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.
No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab
On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.
Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”
At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”
“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.
“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
