Now Corporate Tyranny/Coercion against Gun Retailors

Business software maker Salesforce has now entered the gun debate by informing customers that they will be banned from using its software if they continue selling AR-15’s. Their applications help with marketing products, managing customer service operations and filling orders.

Their demands don’t stop with just AR’s, they go on to list a plethora of other guns and attachments, such as any semiautomatic firearms “that have the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any of the following: thumbhole stock, folding or telescoping stock, grenade launcher or flare launcher, flash or sound suppressor, forward pistol grip, pistol grip (in the case of a rifle) or second pistol grip (in the case of a pistol), [and/or] barrel shroud.”

Using Government Tyranny to Shut Down the NRA

Governor Cuomo of New York has made his intentions clear when he wrote on his Facebook Account, “We are forcing the NRA into financial jeopardy. We won’t stop until we shut them down.” 

Cuomo has launched a campaign using the power of New York state government to destroy the finances of the NRA. Cuomo has declared to every bank and insurance company in America that they either sever ties with the NRA or every agent in New York will hassle and harass them into submission. This is absolutely chilling this is the kind of tyranny we fought wars against.

Cuomo knows that without access to banks or insurance the NRA will cease to exist. These tactics are already working as many banks and insurance companies are buckling under to the tyranny. They are telling the NRA that they don’t want to be targeted by New York’s regulatory machine.

This is not just a second amendment case; it is a first amendment one. Cuomo is trying to use the power of government to silence political speech; thereby, delivering a fatal blow to the second amendment by eliminating its greatest proponent. If this were to work, they can use the same tactic on every political opponent destroying free speech.

The NRA is looking for contributions to help in this effort as they are already taking financial losses.

Amazing America First News

In Trump’s speech to the 2019 NRA leadership forum he announced that he would un-sign the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. This would withdraw us from this very dangerous treaty.

It was signed by former Secretary of State John Kerry in 2013. This was a very dangerous treaty designed by global gun ban advocates. Trump stated that he would not abdicate control over the rights of law-abiding gun owners to foreign bureaucrats. At that point Trump signed in front of everyone a formal letter to the Senate requesting it halt the ratification process. He wants the treaty returned to the oval office where he will then dispose of it.

Even though this treaty was never ratified it is still very dangerous to our freedoms. This treaty has intentionally vague language that could bind the United States to refrain from any act that would defeat the “object and purpose” of the treaty.

The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty was in fact drafted with the purpose of allowing foreign officials to amend it with only ¾ of its signatories. It would not matter if the United States agreed or not. It is obvious to see how tyrannical a treaty like this would be.

This treaty was, of course, forced on us by the Obama-Kerry team. Trump’s commitment to un-sign it shows that he isn’t afraid to side with freedom and protect our God-given right to self-defense.

This kind of courage that Trump displays, by putting America first, is exactly why we should enthusiastically support his presidency.

Hawaii Wants to Repeal the Second Amendment

The Senate in Hawaii voted the week of March 7th to propose repealing the second amendment to the Constitution. In their resolution (SCR) No. 42 Democratic lawmakers (no surprise there) assert that “In light of the numerous tragic mass shootings at schools, work places, and public events, this body believes that it is necessary to repeal or amend the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.” They want to amend the United States Constitution via article V to clarify what our right to bear arms really means.

They assert that the use of the term “well-regulated militia” was only intended to prevent the federal government from legislating away a state’s right for self-defense. They believe in the collective rights interpretation to the constitution not the individual right with regards to the second amendment.

Every other right in the bill of rights is individual except of course the second amendment.

Antonin Scalia wrote:

“The Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.”     

And of course, Thomas Jefferson said it this way in 1776 while drafting the Constitution for Virginia:

“No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms”

This has long been the desire of the totalitarian, despotic, Democratic party to disarm the citizens of the United States. We will see how far they push this scheme at the national level.

The Mass Shooting Myth about America

Most of us have heard the statement that America leads the world in mass shooting deaths. This has been the narrative for some time now. President Obama stated in 2015, “At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.” Again, this sentiment was echoed by Sen. Harry Reid when referencing a mass shooting that, “The United States is the only advanced country where this kind of mass violence occurs.”

This narrative has been propagandized and pushed via the media and liberal politicians for years, but it is a myth.

The myth stems from a study done by a University of Alabama associate professor Adam Lankford. John Lott had looked at the data and utilizing Lankford’s definition for mass shootings which is, “Four or more killed,” found over 3,000 such shootings, where Lankford had a total of 202 with America being responsible for 90 of those.

Here is a sample of the data from Lott’s findings.

You can see that there are many countries above the United States in this study.

The question is who is right, Lott or Lankford? Generally, there would be a discussion between scholars and their methodologies hashed out. However, in this case Lankford isn’t talking.  Can you imagine he refuses to explain his findings to anyone? Could it be because he lying? Lott refers to Lankford as practicing “academic malpractice.”

This erroneous study was rapidly disseminated around the country and became the accepted truth for most American’s.

The article that I am referencing here is from the Foundation for Economic Education or FEE, and it cites a very disturbing cause for the spreading of such disinformation.

Here is a direct quote from the article:

“This is an unsettling and ill omen for liberty. As Lawrence Reed has observed, the road to authoritarianism is paved with a “careless, cavalier, and subjective attitude toward truth.” Yet that is precisely what we see with increasing frequency in mass media. (Need I reference the Covington debacle and the Smollet hoax?).”

Mark Twain had stated that, “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” This is no doubt true today.

Make no mistake about it. The authoritarian’s and tyrants can only implement their socialist utopian green agenda with a disarmed populace, and they will stop at nothing to get there. Lying and creating false studies are a small part of the “by any means necessary approach” to force their collectivist will upon us. We have to remain vigilant on every front.

After a Defensive Shooting

Many of us train with our firearms for the rare chance that we will use that firearm in a defensive shooting. Very few of us are prepared for, or train for, what to do after a shooting takes place.

There are some important steps that one should take immediately after a self-defense shooting to mitigate any further trauma or risks to yourself.

From CCW Safe’s web site they list 10 necessary steps one should take immediately after a defensive action takes place involving a gun.

1. MAKE SURE YOU ARE SAFE: Make sure you are safe from any threat before doing anything. Verify that the suspect no longer poses a threat. Visually scan for other suspects and visually verify that the suspect no longer has access to a weapon. Do not approach the suspect or move evidence.

2. BE THE FIRST TO CALL 911: Be the first one to call 911, even if you did not pull the trigger. If the incident was serious enough for you to deploy your firearm, make a report. Always remember police officers commonly identify the first person who calls as the victim.

3. INITIATE EMERGENCY RESPONSE: From a position of safety call 911. Request emergency medical services if needed for you the suspect or others. Describe what you are wearing and let the dispatcher know you will not have your weapon in your hand when the officers arrive. Tell the 911 Operator something similar to, “I HAD TO USE THE WEAPON IN SELF DEFENSE.” Or “I was forced to defend myself”, “I was in fear for my life”, or “I was attacked”. Do not elaborate or give a detailed account of the incident. This is not the time.

There are seven more steps that one should take after a defensive shooting you can find them here.

Sheriff Stands With The Second Amendment

Here is another brave Sheriff from Maryland. Sheriff Mike Lewis has stated that he, “Will not comply”, if the states lawmakers pass a long gun licensing and confiscation law.

He is the Sheriff of Wicomico County in Maryland. He told the press that he believes that lawmakers are punishing residents throughout the state for the out-of-control crime in Baltimore. He added, “Law-abiding citizens are repeatedly being penalized because of Baltimore City’s inability to control their crime. And I’m sorry — I’m not someone’s puppet.

There are two bills that are being considered House bill 786 and HB 796. HB 786 will regulate shotguns and hinting rifles like hand guns. HB 796 would require confiscation of firearms from unlicensed owners.

Lewis stressed his determination to 786 by stating, “I will stand against it.”

Sherriff Lewis should be applauded for standing up to tyranny and for the rights of the citizens. We will need many more men like him in the future.

Second Amendment Sanctuary Status

I wrote an article regarding red flag laws and how they lead to the destruction of our second amendment rights, as well as due process. These laws are very broadly written. They rely solely on anyone making an accusation about someone else who they say is a danger. That is all law enforcement needs to then confiscate someone’s firearms. This accusation could be from someone who holds a grudge, an ex-girlfriend seeking revenge, anyone for any reason. Without due process your guns will be confiscated.

In New Mexico, Democrats led by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, are pushing universal background checks, gun confiscation via red flag laws, and a broadened prohibited persons list for firearm purchases and possession.

In response to this, 29 of New Mexico’s 33 counties have declared sanctuary status. The sheriff’s in these counties are refusing to enforce these laws if enacted. The New Mexico Sheriff’s Association also made clear it plans to sue the state if the new gun controls are enacted.

Also, in Colorado the same thing is happening. If you want more information on that you can find it here.

Oregon’s New Gun Law Proposals

What the Oregon legislator is proposing is truly draconian. The NRA had stated that the law if enacted would make Oregon the most restrictive state in the country. Senate Bill 501, would require prospective gun owners to obtain a license before making a firearms purchase. It would make magazines capable of holding more than five rounds illegal and limit individual ammunition purchases to no more than 20 rounds every 30 days. Can you believe that, 20 rounds every 30 days? That is insane!

Senate Bill 501 doesn’t stop there. It also would mandate that a background check be delayed for two weeks so the Oregon State Police can complete the needed research into a prospective buyer’s background, which could entail police showing up at your place of work, interviewing your neighbors, or studying your Facebook and Twitter profiles for politically incorrect postings.

It should be no surprise that the sponsor of this bill, Senator Rob Wagner, has been backed by the anti-American Michael Bloomberg.

It gets worse. This bill has no provisions for self-defense or self-defense firearms. Neither does its language allow owners to retain possession of currently owned, currently legal magazines, which may be affected by the ban.

The article that I am referencing is from the USCCA and speaks about handloading as a skill we should look into. I agree.
