6 rural towns in Western Rhode Island are revolting against the state’s gun control status quo.
These rural towns are flirting with the idea of declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuary communities. In other words, these will be places where gun rights won’t be infringed no matter what gun control state lawmakers pass.
The Providence Journal reports Burrillville was the first town to pass such a resolution in the past month. On Monday, May 8, 2019, the Hopkinton Town Council passed a similar resolution on a 3 to 2 vote.
Council member Scott Bill Hirst said, “The Second Amendment is not a suggestion. It’s guaranteed, like freedom of the press, freedom of assembly.”
Hirst added, “We have a degree of arrogance from state leaders … and I’m going to proudly vote to defend the Second Amendment.”
The council member’s words brought cheers from gun rights advocates in the room.
Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo recently unveiled a package of gun control bills that would ban so-called “assault weapons”, impose magazine capacity limits, and ban guns on or near school grounds, with the exception of those carried by law-enforcement officers.
The towns of Glocester, Richmond, Foster, and West Greenwich are also floating these kinds of measures around. Interestingly, the Providence Journal notes that these towns voted for Donald Trump.
After Burrillville’s unanimous vote in favor of Second Amendment sanctuary resolution, State Senator Elaine J. Morgan encouraged the five towns she represents (Hopkinton, Charlestown, Exeter, Richmond and West Greenwich) to follow suit in passing these resolutions.
In a letter, Morgan said “I swore an oath when taking office to protect and uphold our Constitution from any infringements.” She noted that “any gun-control laws that infringe upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms will not be enforced.”
Governor Raimondo declared that if her gun control bills pass, she expects the entire state of Rhode Island to “follow the law, and the state police will enforce that law.”
The national gun control nullification campaign grows larger by the day.
Liberty Conservative News reported how it’s one of the fastest growing battlegrounds for the Second Amendment movement in 2019.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
