Published

on

Will President Donald Trump fold to anti-gun pressure?

After the El Paso and Dayton massacres this past weekend, President Trump is now calling for so-called “red flag” laws to take guns from people who’re allegedly pose a public risk to others.

Trump said “Our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow. We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.”

The president also condemned white supremacy, after reports surfaced that the El Paso murderer penned a racist manifesto.

Trump declared, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”

Trump also tweeted about possibly linking expanded background check legislation to immigration reform.

Video games were also critiqued in his declaration, as President Trump views them as a cultural factor behind these shootings.

The president’s support for red flag gun confiscation orders has backing from the likes of his daughter, Ivanka, Senator Lindsey Graham, and Congressman Dan Crenshaw.

These laws are present in 17 states.

Although they sound innocuous at first glance, many gun rights advocates believe that red flag laws severely undermine due process and could lead to lethal encounters with law enforcement.

Dudley Brown, the President of the National Association for Gun Rights, commented on the nature of red flag laws:

They [Law enforcement] can literally come to your house at 2 in the morning. Yes, they can knock on the door. Sometimes they don’t knock. Sometimes they use a battering ram to open the door.

Just last year, a 61-year-old man in Maryland was killed by police when they tried to serve him his gun confiscation order.

Additionally, Connecticut was one of the first states in the country to enact red flag laws in 1999. However, this law could not prevent the psychopathic Adam Lanza from slaughtering 27 children at Sandy Hook.

Pro-gun researcher John Lott claims that “Red Flag laws appear to have had no significant effect on murder, suicide, the number of people killed in mass public shootings, robbery, aggravated assault or burglary. There is some evidence that rape rates rise. These laws apparently do not save lives.”

This is based off of data from 1970 to 2017.

With growing cries for gun control and Republicans willing to compromise, red flag legislation could be coming up for a vote in Congress.

Gun rights activists will have to be ready to fight back.

GOA Endorses Based Pro-Second Amendment Black Man for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor

Published

on

On August 4, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced that it endorsed Mark Robinson for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.

Tim Macy, chairman of Gun Owners of America, declared, “We all remember the impassioned speech given by Mr. Robinson at the Greensboro City Council meeting. His ‘I’m the majority’ speech reverberated across the country, and launched Mr. Robinson down a path of advocating for and defending the Second Amendment on a national scale.”

Macy added, “Mark Robinson, who is a GOA life member, has promised to give ‘not one inch on the Second Amendment,’ and to defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. GOA is glad to be able to support him in taking this position to the North Carolina State Government.”

Robinson made a name for himself by giving a powerful speech against the Greensboro City Council’s attempt to cancel a gun show in 2018 following the Parkland shooting, which sparked a massive wave of gun control across the nation.
