Guns In The News

This is far bigger than the left’s antipathy for the president. The subversive actions and positions of congressional Republican lawmakers evidence where their allegiances lie – and if we remain in denial as to their implicit expressions of intent, we don the mantle of victimhood willingly.

In a massive leap forward protecting the rights of citizens to own guns, the Missouri state Senate passed a revolutionary law banning all federal gun control laws from ever being enforced.

Police in New Zealand happened to be holding a drill in the city center when the shooting began, just miles from where the massacre unfolded.

Safety is the mantra of anti-gun activists, but their claim of control is a means to their goal of a gun-free society. This progressive policy can be implemented only by compliant citizens. But political opponents, the “deniers,” must be eliminated by social shaming or civil and criminal penalties. There are historical lessons of totalitarian governments, which rule because citizens have been deprived of weapons.

If the Red Flag laws pass and become national it will virtually create a closed society where everyone will be suspect of everyone. People will no longer speak freely for fear of being labeled a potential extremist and having a Red Flag order placed against them. They will no longer seek help if they are experiencing mental duress for the same fear. The more people resist such unconstitutional actions the more people expressing patriotic sentiment will be viewed as extremists and a potential threat to themselves or others. Every time an event like the one in New Zealand occurs the more this narrative will develop.

If people who believe in the right to keep and bear arms, not to mention the rest of the Bill of Rights, do not wake up—and I mean NOW—to the fact that the Republican Party in Washington, D.C. (including Donald Trump), doesn’t give a tinker’s dam about their constitutional liberties, those liberties are going to be G-O-N-E, GONE! And I mean SOON!

While the government is busy attempting to disarm the Americans that they work for through their continuous propaganda efforts, they are on the back end in covertly expanding their agencies’ arsenals.

Most politicians must be pressured to stand up for freedom by informed and involved pro-liberty citizens. That is why those of us who understand the benefits of liberty must remain vigilant against any attempt to erode respect for our rights, especially the right to defend ourselves against private crime and public tyranny.

Whether you like them or not, background checks are here to stay for gun owners and gun purchasers – but they are not the saving grace that some make them out to be. Background checks for gun purchases can only do so much and are not the permanent solution to keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and keeping Americans safe from gun violence. More concerning is that they give the state an ever-growing list of private citizens who own guns, and such a list has historically been used for subsequent gun confiscation attempts.
