Published

The Wuhan Virus pandemic has been an equal opportunity misery bringer.

The National Rifle Association is going through its own set of trials and tribulations at the moment.

According to a report from The Truth About Guns, the gun lobby laid off 60 employees and slashed salaries of many other workers.

This is only the latest of internal drama going on within the organization. In 2019, the organization was mired in lawsuits after the NRA and its public relations firm, Ackerman McQueen, parted ways.

Attorneys general are conducting investigations in efforts to shake down the group. Other investigations concerning the NRA’s unsuccesful Carry Guard program have attracted settlements against the NRA

The NRA has also witnessed a decline in charitable gifts.

Politico provided more details about this development:

The National Rifle Association has laid off more than 60 employees in recent weeks, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.

The move comes as the gun rights group faces acute financial challenges during the economic crunch caused by the coronavirus outbreak. The association recently took a large financial hit when the pandemic forced the NRA to cancel its massive annual meeting. The group often makes millions of dollars off the event, from the fees people pay to attend to the funds raised from the convention. Its cancellation appears to have wiped out that revenue.

A spokesman for the group did not dispute the layoffs when asked for comment.

Although the NRA has left a lot to be desired with regards to its dedication to no compromise Second Amendment efforts, a financial collapse on its end would most certainly embolden the anti-gun Left.

Portland Experiences Over a 100% Increase in Shootings After Anti-Gun Violence Police Force is Disbanded

Published

on

In July of 2020, the city of Portland experienced 15 homicides.

According to Portland police, this is the most killings the city has experienced in one month in over three decades.

So far in 2020, 24 people have died due to homicides in Portland.

Oregon Live reported that the most recent killing took place on July 28, 2020 when a 34-year-old woman was stabbed at a Northeast Portland home after coming back from a vigil mourning the death of 27-year-old Tyrell Penney, who was murdered in a shooting on July 29.

In July 2020, there have been 63 shootings, while there was 28 in July 2019 per a Police Bureau report.

Although homicides, assaults, burglaries and vandalism have increased this year compared to 2019, total person-to-person and property crimes have plummeted compared to previous years, according to the bureau’s report.

Police Chief Chuck Lovell said on July 30 that he’s very worried about the uptick in violence and is shifting officers from patrol units to the detective division in order to shore up follow-up investigations.

He also explained that the bureau had to cut its Gun Violence Reduction Team in accordance to new policy changes the City Council ushered in. The team, which counted on 34 members, was disbanded on July 1 in response to budget cuts to police units that have allegedly targeted a disproportionate number of blacks during routine traffic stops.

Like many cities in the country, Portland is starting to embrace leftist radicalism on matters of law enforcement by considering moves to defund the police.

Oregon is already one of the more anti-gun states in the country, so lawful individuals in Portland don’t have many options at their disposal for self-defense. With police being gutted, regular citizens have even fewer options at their disposal for security.

This has obviously not registered with political elites and represents why many Americans will likely leave cities in masse in search of jurisdictions that actually bother to provide basic law enforcement infrastructure.
