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.

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.

Meditation – The Replacement for Defensive Firearms

Yep, that’s what was suggested to Kent State’s Kaitlin Bennett when she recently appeared on Paul Logan’s podcast “Impaulsive.” Watch Millie Weaver walk through the highlights of the podcast. It’s just a good illustration of facts vs. feelings.

Red Flag Gun Laws

What are red flag gun laws? If you don’t know or haven’t heard of them you will soon. Red flag laws are also called Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs). Under these provisions law enforcement has the ability to take/confiscate an individual’s firearms; not after a trial or court hearing but simply on the word of a family member, friend or associate. These laws completely violate due process. People are now guilty until they prove themselves innocent.  A law that assumes guilt is in violation of due process.                              

For a better understanding of due process look here. In general, due process guarantees the following.

  • Right to a fair and public trial conducted in a competent manner
  • Right to be present at the trial
  • Right to an impartial jury
  • Right to be heard in one’s own defense
  • Laws must be written so that a reasonable person can understand what is criminal behavior
  • Taxes may only be taken for public purposes
  • Property may be taken by the government only for public purposes
  • Owners of taken property must be fairly compensated

If you are thinking this is some weird far-left democratic idea, think again. These red flag laws have been passed by thirteen states so far and are enjoying bipartisan support in Congress. They have several prominent Republican Senators who are in support of such laws and are crafting legislation. The Trump administration has even signaled their support for these laws.

In an article that is linked below on this topic, the author makes a great point about Progressivism. We need to pay attention to it.

“A century’s worth of Progressivism has normalized universalist ideas such as economic controls, big spending, never-ending wars, and now, gun control.” The problem is an ideologic one and simply put, many of our elected Republicans are believers in these progressive ideas.

Oppose the U.N. Small Arms Treaty

I was listening to the David Webb show the other day on the Sirus XM Patriot channel. David was talking to the president of the USCCA on his show. They mentioned that the new House of Representatives led by Pelosi is dusting off every piece of gun control legislation they have. They plan on a full and relentless assault on our second amendment rights.  As a side note, you can bet on an assault on the first amendment as well. Tyrants can’t have the light of truth being shown on their agenda or it will never pass. In my next blog I will discuss tricks that are used for disinformation by the left.

Sorry for my digression on the first amendment. Another topic that was mentioned on the show is the U.N. small arms treaty that Obama signed. This is a real threat to our second amendment freedoms. What is ironic is when I opened my personal email that day, there was an email from Rand Paul on the very topic of the U.N treaty. I will put the text below from the email Rand sent. He explains the issue very well.

There is also a petition to sign relating to the U.N treaty. I signed it. I think all second amendment advocates should as well.



“Will 2019 be the year Michael Bloomberg succeeds with his radical anti-gun agenda?

Expanded/Universal Background Checks. The Feinstein Gun Ban. An International Gun Registry…

…the list goes on.

Since day one of President Obama’s administration, Bloomberg and his gun-grabbing friends have salivated over the prospect of disarming the American people.

And without your IMMEDIATE action, I’m afraid a horde of new U.N.-directed anti-gun regulations and restrictions here in the United States could make that nightmare a reality.

In the works since the 1990s Clinton administration, the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty” is the gun-grabbers’ crown jewel.

In 2013 the Obama administration signed the “Treaty” for the United States, and in 2016 the U.N. Conference voted to enforce the Treaty without “consensus.”

It’s gun control on a global scale — setting the stage for international bureaucrats to finally realize their goal of registering and CONFISCATING firearms around the world.

I’m doing everything I can to help expose the TRUTH about this radical scheme.

But today I’m asking you to join me by taking a public stand against the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty” by signing the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey right away.

The truth is, one simple executive action by the Trump administration announcing that the U.S. will no longer support their global gun ban could crush their goal of imposing the U.N.’s so-called “Small Arms Treaty” in the United States.

Unfortunately, with Michael Bloomberg in the driver’s seat, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Second Amendment supporters than they are right now.

Gun grabbers aren’t batting an eye before rushing to “cash in” and politicize the murders and shootings across the country to build support for more gun control.

Bloomberg’s cronies in Congress already succeeded in ramming through an expansion of the Brady Background Check System earlier this year under a “pro-gun” administration.

And followed up with a new ATF rule banning firearms accessories that paves the way for outright gun bans if the gun grabbers steal back control of Congress.

But this is nothing compared to the horde of new anti-gun regulations and restrictions the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty” will bring if Bloomberg succeeds in ramming the “Treaty” through the Senate.”
