Pro-Gun Organization Stands Up for Family Whose Son Was Suspended From School for Holding a Toy Gun

A no compromise Second Amendment organization is coming to the defense of a young student who was suspended for handling a toy gun during a virtual class session.

On September 10, 2020, the National Foundation for Gun Rights issued a press release announcing that it will be providing legal assistance to the family of twelve-year-old Isaiah Elliott.

In late August, Elliott briefly moved a toy handgun with an orange tip during his remote class at Grand Mountain School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In addition, the school vice principal directed resource officers from the sheriff’s office to carry out a welfare check. However, Elliott’s parents recounted that they did not receive any notification about the police visit until they were on the way to the boy’s household.

Upon arrival, the deputies informed the twelve-year-old that his behavior could have led to criminal charges. Further, they warned that if Elliott committed a similar offense in the future, he could potentially face criminal charges.

“School officials inflicting a five-day suspension on a small boy for having a toy gun in his own home is disgusting, declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Foundation for Gun Rights. “Instead of apologizing to the parents, the school took the outrageous step of sending law enforcement to further intimidate the child and parents.”

“It is our hope that a big win here will send the message to bureaucratic bullies everywhere to back off and stop harassing innocent children,” commented Brown.

A similar case in Colorado involved eleven-year-old Maddox Blow, who ended up finishing his online quiz early, and proceeded to grab an airsoft gun.
His teacher was able to catch this incident after watching a recording of the session. The teacher then called local police to visit Maddox’s home for a welfare check. Maddox would end up getting a four-day suspension.

At the moment, the National Foundation for Gun Rights is looking at all legal means to help these families who find themselves intimidated by education officials that are all too happy to use law enforcement against children.

Over the past decade, Colorado’s gun politics have moved in a decidedly anti-gun direction. Incidents like these show how far the state is descending in terms of anti-gun pettiness.

If it weren’t for organizations such as NAGR and its affiliates, the state would likely be getting away with even worse criminal actions.

Mara Elvira Salazar is No Friend of America First Nationalism

Republican leaders would be wise to ignore all of her political advice.

If there’s one Republican leader that young activists should never listen to, it’s Florida Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar. 

Salazar, who is a Cuban American, has been an outspoken advocate of loosening U.S. immigration laws. In fact, she even confronted known immigration hawk and key Trump adviser Stephen Miller at a Republican Study Committee weekly lunch on February 24, 2021. She specifically criticized Trump’s immigration message and demanded that the GOP be more inclusive in its outreach.

“I told him [Miller] that the GOP needs to attract the browns,” stated Salazar. “We, for the last 30 years since Ronald Reagan, have not sent the right message to the browns,” she continued. “Reagan was the last guy who gave a path to citizenship to 3 million people … 35 years ago. It’s time for us to do the same thing that Reagan did.”

Salazar doubled down on her pro-immigration message when she went on Larry Kudlow’s show on March 2 and declared that former President Donald Trump would have done better with Hispanics by advocating for looser immigration. Journalist Ryan Girdusky noted how some of Trump’s advisers were already pushing for amnesty lite policies:

Girdusky added that Salazar was rather unhinged in her criticism of Miller’s vision for the GOP:

Salazar made a lot of noise about the Hispanic vote, despite ignoring how Trump improved his Hispanic numbers between 2016 and his re-election bid in 2020 from 28% to 32%. And he did so without much Hispandering or campaigning on passing amnesty. 

The unsavory fact that the GOP consultant class and the likes of Salazar refuse to acknowledge is that the Black Lives Matter unrest alone likely pushed significant segments of the Hispanic population into the Democrats’ arms. BLM radicalism alienated Americans of all backgrounds., but Hispanics were not having any of this kind of ruckus. Even Hispanic Democrats, of all groups, largely supported strong military action during the riots.

In reality, Hispanic support for Trump is largely based on his bluster and political bluntness, which many minority groups find comfort in. 

However, Republicans like Salazar gets it all wrong by thinking that expanding immigration both legal and illegal is a key to the Republican Party success. The Republican Party will have to concede that they can make gains with Hispanics at the margins but they cannot expect to win the majority of the Hispanic vote due to Hispanics’ propensity to support many causes ranging from gun control to more government involvement in healthcare. Data from the Pew Research Center demonstrates these beliefs among Hispanics. Nevertheless, there are some avenues for outreach with this demographic  but they must be done right. 

The key for Republican success is the white working class voters, which played a crucial role in putting Trump over the top in the Midwest back in 2016. These voters are not the most reliable in terms of turnout, but they comprise a vast segment of the American electorate. Any candidate who can activate them could potentially build a hegemonic electoral coalition for years to come. The goal for a sane Republican campaign is to maximize turnout and support among the WWC. 

Such inroads with WWC voters are more important than meeting a diversity quota the likes of Salazar and naive Republican strategists would like the party to pursue. Any nationalist campaign worth its salt would be promoting the following: Infrastructure projects targeting the Midwest, the restriction of both illegal and legal immigration, and re-shoring programs to bring jobs back. 

On the other hand, following Salazar’s program is the way that the GOP will become irrelevant and alienate many WWC voters who are already on the fence with regards to the Republican Party. These voters are not going to gravitate towards Republicans just because of the “R” next to their name. They still must be catered to and pushing for amnesty is one way to turn working class voters off.

Under Salazar’s watch, the GOP will simply be going back to the politically correct ways of the Bush administration. To tap into the sleeping giants that is the WWC, Republican leaders should ignore everything Salazar has to say and get fully behind nationalist policies such as immigration restriction, infrastructure development, and re-shoring.
