Ted Cruz Suspends Intern Arrested Over Unconstitutional DC Gun Law

Published

on

A supposedly pro-Second Amendment Senator has suspended an intern who was arrested and charged with possession of unregistered ammunition in Washington, D.C.

“U.S. Capitol Police told the Washington Examiner that Scott Frantz, 20, was arrested after officers responded to a report on Monday afternoon regarding a ‘dispute’ between Frantz and another person in a vehicle near Capitol Hill,” said the report.

Frantz is an intern for Senator Rafael “Ted” Cruz (R-TX).

“Officers noticed there were shotgun shells in the vehicle, and charged Frantz with possession of unregistered ammunition. D.C. law requires that firearms and ammunition be registered,” according to the report.

To be clear, nowhere in the Bill of Rights is it mandated that one must register firearms or ammunition. The D.C. law is a clear infringement on the right to bear arms, which, according to the U.S. Constitution, shall not be infringed.

But that small point seems to have escaped the Senator from Texas.

Cruz, supposedly a champion of the Second Amendment, could have used this incident as a teaching moment to show his constituents just how tyrannical gun laws have become, especially in the nation’s capitol. In the process, he could have defended his intern.

Instead, he took the easy way out. Like a typical cowardly politician, he bowed the political left and tried to dodge the scandal instead of standing up for what he claims to believe in.

“A spokesperson for Cruz’s office told CNN that his ‘office does not comment on pending law enforcement or personnel matters,’ according to the report.

Massachusetts Gun Store Remaining Open in Defiance of Governor’s “Non-Essential” Declaration

The Gunrunner isn’t closing its doors.

Published

on

A Massachusetts gun store is remaining open even after Governor Charlie Baker labeled firearm retail establishments “non-essential” and directive them to close under the commonwealth’s state of emergency declaration.

John Costa, owner of The Gunrunner in Middleboro, believes that the Second Amendment provides his gun store with authorization to remain open.

Costa explained that “under the second amendment we have every right to defend ourselves,” justifying the operations of The Gunrunner. Business has been booming at the store according to Costa, with unprecedented amounts of gun purchasers patronizing the establishment despite Baker’s command that they stay away.

Baker expressed discontent at a Wednesday press conference upon learning that some gun stores in the commonwealth were remaining open.

They shouldn’t have been open last week. The only folks on the firearm side that have been essential been in Massachusetts since we issued the initial order are manufacturers.

Costa is practicing social distancing measures, as well. He’s not even letting customers to enter the physical space of his store. Instead, potential gun buyers are describing the kind of gun they want for Costa to bring it out to them curbside. It’s hard to imagine more stringent social distancing measures being utilized by any business, but it’s not good enough for the commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The store has received a cease-and-desist order from town officials after declining to close in accordance with state directives. Gun stores aren’t included as essential retailers in the proclamation issued by Massachusetts’ nominally Republican governor, and he’s going to greater lengths to close them than progressive Democrats in states such as New Jersey and California. Governors and sheriffs in both states caved when the Trump administration declared firearms retailers to be essential businesses under updated DHS guidelines, but Baker is steadfast in insisting that gun retailers close.

Americans have shattered previous monthly records for firearms purchases during the month of March, showing a desire to lawfully acquire arms that correlates sharply with the coronavirus epidemic. With an unprecedented demand for guns among the public, policy makers should think twice about arbitrarily demanding the industry shut down.
