Mark Robinson, who became famous for an impassioned speech in favor of the Second Amendment in Greensboro, North Carolina, won the Republican party primary in North Carolina’s lieutenant governor’s race on March 3, 2020.
Robinson is seeking higher office for the first time in his career. He shocked the pundits by winning the primary without a runoff. He also spent less than other rival candidates. One challenger was a state senator who dropped half a million dollars into his own campaign effort. Other challengers had statewide platforms or more political experience than Robinson.
Robinson defeated state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson and former Congresswoman Renee Ellmers.
“We’re not pretentious,” Robinson said late Tuesday. “I’m not spreading a political message. I’m spreading a message of strong conservatism.”
Robinson is a black male, who believes there is a false narrative being spread about racism in the Republican Party.
“We’ve allowed other people to dictate the narrative and tell the story,” he stated. “I’ve not seen any racism in the Republican Party the whole time I’ve been in it.”
Robinson caused a stir about two years ago with a speech in front of the Greensboro City Council, which was floating the idea of canceling a gun show in the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida massacre.
He vowed to “raise hell just like these loonies from the left do until you listen to the majority of the people in this city.”
“And I am the majority,” he declared, describing himself as a law-abiding gun owner.
Robinson raised about $90,000 for his campaign during the last six months of 2019, according to campaign finance reports.
Candidates like Robinson are needed in the perpetual fight to preserve the right to bear arms.
Gun owners should be rooting for Robinson’s victory in the General Election.
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.
