Just Say No To RED FLAG Gun Laws

With the shootings that have taken place in Texas and Ohio, as expected, all the same voices from the Democrats and the media came screaming for Gun control. The most concerning of these gun control schemes are Red Flag laws. These laws are basically “thought crime” laws – where a person has not yet done anything; but, we will take a person’s guns because they have made statements that someone doesn’t like.

The goal of the left is total disarmament of the civilian population, make no mistake about it. No tyrannical despotic government has ever risen without disarming the populace. These Red Flag laws are a major step in that direction. I have stated this in a previous post and I have a powerful ally that agrees with me on this topic.

Rush Limbaugh has voiced his concern about this topic on his program recently.

Here are some quotes:

  • He called Red Flag laws a way for the left to, “incrementally get what they want, which is law-abiding gun owners’ firearms.”
  • He went on to add when concerning the left “They want your guns. They want everybody’s guns. They’re just like the communists. They want your guns. They want full confiscation, and there is no majority for that in this country.”

We need to stand against these laws. There is no telling where they could lead. They slaughter the first amendment, are designed to come after and wreak havoc on the second amendment, while destroying due process as well.

The problem is not weapons, but the heart of man. Evil people will always find a way to perpetrate their rage. No laws can stop a person set on killing innocents. Disarming good people will only make it easier for bad people to murder. In past decades, everyone owned guns, had them in cars, unlocked and accessible. People left their doors unlocked. You didn’t see this mass-shooting phenomenon. Why? What is different now? You KNOW the answer, and that’s what we need to fix. And that can’t be fixed with the law of man.

Ohioan’s Overwhelm Their Supreme Court

The gun owners in Ohio took quick action recently to protect their gun rights. The Second Amendment supporters made their voices heard, loud and clear.

The event that initiated this swift action from Ohio’s gun owners, were proposed amendments that would make it easier for law enforcement to  seize the firearms, ammunition, and concealed handgun licenses of citizens subject to a civil protection order (even without “sufficient nexus”).

The number of people contacting the court was so large that the email system went down and phone calls overwhelmed the switchboard. The citizens of Ohio let their voices be heard loud and clear a great example for all of us.

Another Sad Story Out of New York

In upstate New York Ronald Stolarczyk was arrested in Oneida County and charged with felony possession of a firearm. Mr. Stolarczyk heard people in his garage and verbally warned them to leave. The two strangers then started coming upstairs into his home. Stolarczyk then shot both men with a .38 revolver and both criminals died.

The police and district Attorney determined that Mr. Stolarczyk had defended himself lawfully from the intruders. Then a short while later he was charged with felony possession of a weapon.

The gun had been handed down to him from his father and in New York that requires a host of registration and licensing permits. Mr. Stolarczyk committed the grievous sin of not jumping through those legal barriers placed by the totalitarian state.

Mr. Stolarczyk is currently in jail, unable to afford the $10,000 bail required by the court for his freedom. There is a legal fund to help in his defense you can find here.

This a sad story from the land of the free and the home of the brave.

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.

To read more on this myth and its creation along with Lott’s rebuttal, please read the article from FEE.

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.
