Phil 4:4-9 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
The Bible says in Psalm 146, do not put your trust in princes or a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. Well, the Supreme court completely validated that passage this last week on a host of issues. One of those being the Second Amendment.
Clarence Thomas said this past week that the court tolerates requirements/restraints on the Second Amendment that it would never allow for abortion.
The court was asked to hear a case Rogers v. Grewal which centered around a person to have a “justifiable need” for a owning a gun before a handgun permit is issued. The court rejected to hear the case.
Thomas dissented to that decision by stating that the Second Amendment is a fundamental right for, “the people to keep and bear Arms…yet in several jurisdictions throughout the country, law-abiding citizens have been barred from exercising the fundamental right to bear arms because they cannot show that they have a ‘justifiable need’ or ‘good reason’ for doing so.” He said that this was an onerous burden on a fundamental right.
He added later could you imagine the court allowing a state to enforce a law requiring a woman to provide a justifiable need before seeking an abortion. Thomas then stated. “But today, faced with a petition challenging just such a restriction on citizens’ Second Amendment rights, the Court simply looks the other way.”
I am afraid we are in for some perilous times on many freedom issues and this is just the begging. It is also a reminder to never place your trust in man but God.

The folks at Minuteman Review created this handy infographic. Thought we would share…
Here we go…Congress is considering a bill to require citizens to apply for a federal license before being able to purchase a firearm.
The government would also have the authority to deny a license, even if the applicant has no criminal history or mental health issues.
What this does is essentially create a nationwide “red flag law.” The government can deny or revoke a license if they arbitrarily deem you to be a problem.
The proposed law would also tax firearms at 30% and ammunition at 50%.
Meanwhile, March saw record firearm sales.
The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 3.7 million background checks required to buy firearms. That is the highest month on record since the system began in 1998.
Some Positive Second Amendment News
Here is a link to Gunpowder Magazine. The site has really good information on Second Amendment news. Its editor is Teresa Mull.
She has a segment called “The Bullet Point” in which she rattles off some positive gun news in two minutes.
Here is a link to the site. The video can be found there.
Many of you have heard of the U.N treaty on small arms. This treaty if ever ratified by the Senate would be an end run around the second amendment and our constitution.
President Trump has stated his opposition to this treaty and has asked the Senate to send it back to the White House where he can dispose of it.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has just introduced legislation (S. 204) to remove the U.N.’s “Small Arms Treaty” from Senate consideration and send it back to the White House where it can finally be killed.
This Treaty if ratified will do the following:
- Mandate national “screening” for those seeking to own guns, giving bureaucrats the final say on whether or not you’re “competent” enough to own a gun;
- Restrictive licensing for gun and ammo sales, and perhaps even bans on certain types of firearms. This could include anything from semi-auto rifles to shotguns and handguns!
- Restrictions on the number of guns and amount of ammo any “properly-licensed” individual may legally own;
- Bans on magazines holding more than ten rounds; and
- Bans on owning a firearm for self-defense — unless a citizen can somehow demonstrate need and get federal government approval.
I received an email from Rand Paul requesting to sign a petition make a donation. I will post a few highlights of this email then provide a link to the petition. Whether you make a donation is up to you.
- As long as the Treaty is pending in the Senate, ratification is all that’s needed for this gun grab to become reality — regardless of who occupies the White House or their position on the Treaty!
- As President Trump stated, this Treaty would effectively “allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your Second Amendment freedom.”
- In fact, after reading through the details of the Treaty, it’s hard to see how our Second Amendment could survive such an assault.
- Perhaps the worst of the Treaty’s provisions can be found in Article V, which mandates countries establish a “National Control List” — a record-keeping system to track “end users” of “small and light weapons” for a “minimum of ten years.”
- This is an International Gun Registry, clearly designed to include detailed information on American gun owners. Just imagine foreign dictators and governments having unrestricted access to a list of every American gun owner!
As you can see there is little chance that our Second Amendment and our gun rights would survive.
Remember that registration is just the first step toward outright CONFISCATION.
Here is the link to the Petition.
Well it didn’t take them long after being sworn in, the tyrannical Democrat’s in Virginia’s House of Delegates passed legislation Tuesday to ban suppressors, “high capacity” magazines, and “assault weapons.” This is really bad news. The democrat’s amended the bill to grandfather in those people that already own AR-15s, AK-47s, and similar rifles. However, all high capacity magazines over 12 rounds must be surrendered.
The NRA gave a statement regarding HB 961:
HB961 will turn law-abiding Virginians into criminals overnight. Under this bill, anyone who owns a standard capacity magazine must submit to mandatory confiscation or face one year in jail for each magazine they own. No law-abiding Virginian will be able to buy an AR-15 – America’s most popular all-purpose sporting rifle. After receiving money from Michael Bloomberg, House leaders have their hands out for more and clearly have no regard for the will of their constituents.
This situation is going to continue. At some point it will come to a head when compliance is poor and they then try and enforce their tyrannical laws.

Well another Shot Show in the can! What a wild week it was!
It’s always exciting to see the crazy amount of people at this show! Great people – salt of the earth folks. Everyone is so kind, but also intelligent, diligent, and prepared for life. It is the exact opposite of what the MSM would say about this group of people, who by the way, are from all over the world!
Men and Women at this show are serious about our rights and preserving them.
We spoke to hundreds of folks! Our voices are now scratchy and our feet are on fire, but it was all worth it.
We had, as usual, a fantastic response to our BarrelBuddy product! Hearing over and over again “why did it take so long for this to get invented?” !
It was an honor to meet so many of you, and please reach out if you are ready to do business with us. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to speak soon, and we’ll see you next year at Shot!
Only a couple of weeks until SHOT SHOW 2020, and we are locked and loaded, looking forward to seeing you there!
This will be our second year attending, and going by the response we received last year, we are excited to see old friends and meet many new ones!
We are looking to partner with retailers, wholesalers, buyers and dealers of high integrity, that wish to carry one of the most revolutionary, yet “common sense” gun cleaning products on the market today.
It’s time to “Pitch the Patch” and stop using a 2-dimensional flat square patch to clean a 3-dimensional cylindrical barrel! BarrelBuddy solves so many of the hassles and ineffectiveness you’ve put up with for years in maintaining your firearms.
It’s been a big 2019 for BarrelBuddy, as we were featured in the NRA’s American Rifleman, Shooting Illustrated, and American Hunter. The USCCA’s Concealed Carry Magazine spotlighted us in their “GEAR WE LOVE” section, and we were even used to clean the weapons in the feature film THE RELIANT!
We also started our campaign to raise $1,000,000 to prevent Veteran Suicide, donating $5 for every order you place for BarrelBuddy.
We are looking forward to an awesome 2020, and hope it is blessed and prosperous for all y’all!
I have written a lot recently about the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement taking place with many counties in Virginia. Virginia isn’t alone, but it has now become the epicenter of this movement. The reason for this is the Democratic party swept the last election in November. They now control the Virginia Governorship, House and Senate.
The Democrat’s have been pushing a series of draconian gun control measures, but were unable to get them through because the Republicans controlled part of the legislature. That is now no longer the case. As a result, counties all around Virginia have declared themselves Sanctuary counties and have refused to enforce any of these draconian measures.
The Democrats will be sworn in this January, 2020 and have vowed to pass these totalitarian measures. The lines are being drawn there and this could become a powder keg.
What I have below is a statement being given to the Fairfax County Virginia assembly providing observations regarding the 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement taking place, and its potential to start a civil war.
This man identifies himself as someone who is a plain-clothed federal agent, so no one knows that he represents law enforcement in his daily travels around Virginia.
In the video below are his observations at ground level as he meets people in his travels around Virginia. It is a very sobering speech and plea to the legislature. Please watch it.
