Published

On March 1, 2020, Twitter user Nathan Attrill tweeted about the Chinese government’s forced transfer of Uyghurs and ethnic minorities to factories building up goods that are casually consumed in the West.

He linked to a report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) titled “Uyghurs for Sale.”

In a report titled “Uyghurs for Sale”, Vicky Xiuzhong Xu, Danielle Cave, Dr James Leibold, Kelsey Munro, & Nathan Ruser detailed how the Chinese government “has facilitated the mass transfer of Uyghur and other ethnic minority citizens from the far west region of Xinjiang to factories across the country.” The report contends that these conditions “strongly suggest forced labour” with Uyghurs working “in factories that are in the supply chains of at least 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing and automotive sectors, including Apple, BMW, Gap, Huawei, Nike, Samsung, Sony and Volkswagen.”

From 2017 to 2019, more than 80,000 Uyghurs were forced out of Xinjiang to work in factories throughout China and good portion of them were sent straight to detention camps. However, the ASPI report contends that “The estimated figure is conservative and the actual figure is likely to be far higher.” Similarly, the authors noted that “In factories far away from home, they typically live in segregated dormitories,3 undergo organised Mandarin and ideological training outside working hours,4 are subject to constant surveillance, and are forbidden from participating in religious observances.5

ASPI added that “small number of brands including Abercrombie & Fitch advised they have instructed their vendors to terminate their relationships with these suppliers in 2020. Others, including Adidas, Bosch and Panasonic, said they had no direct contractual relationships with the suppliers implicated in the labour schemes, but no brands were able to rule out a link further down their supply chain.”

Known China critic Gordon Chang commented “US Customs should impound all products from #China until the importer can prove that those goods were not made with slave or forced labor. Obviously, the current system is not working. I do not want my running shoes to be a crime against humanity. #Nike #Uighurs #EastTurkistan

Although China has enthralled many international observers, it is among the most authoritarian countries in the globe,

It has no right to bear arms, freedom of speech, or freedom of religion.

Americans with a conscious should think twice about doing business with Chinese companies that have ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

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.
