Published

on

The Texas Director of Operations for Gun Owners of America Teresa Beckmeyer reported on the Texas border county of Presidio declaring itself a Second Amendment sanctuary on Wednesday July 10, 2019.

At the Commissioner’s Court, over sixty citizens presented this resolution to a standing room crowd.

Six individuals spoke out in favor of this pro-gun resolution. No one came out in opposition.

In Presidio County, having gun rights is a matter of basic survival for those living close to the Southern border. Beckmeyer noted this:

Some of those speaking were rancher’s wives who told of instances where they had encountered illegal aliens on their property and that without a weapon, they would have not been able to protect themselves should the need have presented itself.

Additionally, law enforcement is not very reliable in this area.

In this sparsely populated part of Texas, it can take law enforcement 45 minutes to an hour to reach the vicinity of a 911 call.

Other speakers noted how the federal government has overreached on gun rights and re-iterated that they have a constitutional right to defend themselves. No government, federal or state, can infringe on that.

The local sheriff also spoke before the court and crowd. Like other sheriffs across the country, he pledged his support for Presidio county citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.

After much discussion, the commissioners present at this gathering voiced their approval for the Second Amendment and the need to defend it at all times.

When the final vote came, all three commissioners and the judge in attendance voted for the resolution.

Presidio County is following in the footsteps of counties all the way from Colorado to Rhode Island, who have stood up to gun control at the state level.

The gun rights sanctuary movement is arguably one of the fastest-growing nullification campaigns taking place in the nation.

When state governments fail to uphold gun rights, local entities must take matters into their own hands.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
