As you watch the immature Leftist reaction to recent Supreme Court decisions, take note because you haven’t seen anything yet… I think you can count on this kind of tasteless official mis-behavior. It’s a specialty of the Leftists ever since Alinsky wrote “Rules for Radicals” and they used it to claw their way to power.
The media is acting as the Left’s propaganda partner, and deep state agencies including law enforcement are acting as their enforcers.
The Leftist power brokers have been hiding behind secrecy and a series of laws like the Patriot Act that allowed them to operate in the shadows while working to destroy liberty.
Laws like the Federal Gun Free School Zones Act passed in 1990 (with the full support of Biden) were authored and pushed through Congress with the full knowledge of their impact on school safety. They sound good on the surface, but create celebrity seeking psychopath attracting massacre zones – effectively sacrificing our children on the Leftist alter of gun control. I now believe that the Leftist politicians that promoted these laws did it with the full knowledge of what this impact would be – knowing that htey could use future deaths to promote their agenda. Despicable.
As the truth about Uvalde slowly comes out, I’m beginning to wonder about the truth behind the delays that caused almost an hour of freedom for that psychopath to kill those people. The police in body armor waited, the defective door was always unlocked, and one officer was even disarmed when he tried to save his dying wounded wife. Why? And why did a Texas Senator subsequently lead the passage of a big money “gun control” bill? Much of this makes no sense on the surface. And now, after more than twice as many people are killed in a nearby border incident, the media glosses over the tragic deaths and ignores it. That is clear evidence of an agenda at work.
Leftists will do anything to achieve and maintain their power. They will impeach and impede a standing president then hold Stalinist style show trials to try and prevent him from returning to office. They will cover up and lie for their agendas. They will use propaganda and brainwashing to promote their agendas. Given the motivation and opportunity, they exhibit the worst of human behavior.
In compromise both sides walk away from the “deal” with something. Do you see anything in this exchange with the Leftists that helps gun owners in any way? Didn’t think so…
50 plus years of “gun control” abuse of lawful gun owners has been tolerated by patriots including considerable infringement of the Second Amendment.
Very bad and dangerous laws with safe sounding names (for easy passage to confuse the ignorant) have been passed in the name of “gun control” by Leftist Democrats. “Background Checks” “Gun Free School Zones” etc… “Emergency Risk Protection Orders”… each new strategy more infringing and unconstitutional than the next – each infringement more impossible for law abiding citizens to deal with.
Very good and effective laws are fought every inch by Leftist Democrats, and proven to save lives by making guns and gun owners more commonly available to defend themselves and those they love. Constitutional (permitless) concealed carry in half of the United States has made each state more safe where it is passed. Fought every inch of the way by Leftist Democrats.
When celebrity seeking psychopaths attack supposed gun free massacre zones, ignoring all gun control laws and violating felony laws against violence, Leftist Democrat District Attorneys routinely drop firearms related charges and fail to prosecute the criminals that have committed firearm related crimes.
Highly publicized violent criminal attacks with firearms are routinely propagandized by mass media propelling a lying agenda to make such attacks appear more common driving brainwashing and irrational fear of guns in the general population. Lying mentally ill “victims” are heavily promoted as celebrity seeking psychopaths of a different sort, many of whom were never at risk in incidents they are associated with. Constant months long barrages of propaganda drive justification for further infringement of fundamental enumerated citizen rights.
A true compromise would eliminate all this manipulative behavior first, then eliminate bad laws that enable it, enforce laws against violent criminal actions and separate mentally ill criminals from the general population. I don’t see any offers of this nature from Leftist Democrats, and mere mention of this is immediately rejected by the fake “negotiators”…
There are no compromises or negotiations going on. Just more lies. The tail end of 50 years of gun control lies.
In May, 2022, the US Border patrol captured 15 people on the US Terrorist watch list, equaling the total number of people on this list apprehended in all of 2021, and in all of those captured during President Trump’s administration from 2017-2020 combined. Biden’s administration has essentially extended an open invitation to America’s most violent sworn enemies.
Now that you’re clearly warned, you see all the political agitation and fear. This will hopefully result in defeat of these repeatedly introduced and Democrat passed gun grabbing bills. That becomes political red meat for use in the November mid-term elections.
I imagine that Leftist minions will continue the drumbeat of mass attacks through November, just like Antifa thugs did on our streets in 2020. Anarchy is a tool of Leftists, and always has been. Democrats created the vulnerable school massacre zones in 1990 (Biden himself was an author of the law) when they passed the “Gun Free School Zones Act” to make our children the targets of fatherless celebrity psychopaths. 96% of these attacks have chosen these places ever since (CPRC).
Leftists and their elites – obsessed with power – are evil, have no interest in protecting citizens at liberty and see you standing in their way. This is why they want to disarm you.
They care nothing about children’s lives. Over 260,000 fetuses are aborted every year, the majority of whom are minorities – I guess black lives really don’t matter to them. Neither do the lives of our school children – obviously just pawns in their gun control agenda.
Real solutions are already off the table, especially if you listen to the Leftist “experts” being brought before the broadcast cameras and microphones. They say that arming teachers and school staff certainly can’t work, and should not even be considered. But wait… some states already permit this, and they are not experiencing these “celebrity psychopath” attack tragedies…
GRNC supported a bill called the 2018 “Arm Teachers – Support NC H1039 The School Self Defense Act” four years ago that would have effectively addressed these “celebrity psychopaths”:
Leftists cry crocodile tears and wring their hands in the media for days after these school “massacre zone” incidents, but they raise re-election funds on the bodies of children in schools and in the womb. That’s despicable. Leftists created these “massacre zones” and their media partners create the “celebrity psychopaths” that attack children repeatedly. Politicians lie about how common these attacks are (they are more rare than lightening strike injuries).
More people were shot in Chicago in May than at the school attack… but Chicago already has draconian gun control, so promoting it in the media isn’t useful… so… not a peep from the liberty attacking politicians.
“The right” isn’t emphasizing “gun rights”… we’re fortunately obsessed with personal liberty.
Politicians are lying constantly about the United States being more dangerous because of the Second Amendment. A quick look at just one area can confirm this. In just the area of Islamic Terrorism, you can see that over 300,000 people have been murdered since 2001, and most of those attacks have taken place against civilians outside the United States because the victims are easy to kill. They are tracked here:
I suppose that it’s also time to remind the President, his administration, all the Leftist Democrats in Congress and the rest of the politicians loudly calling in magical unison for “Universal Background Checks” and more “Gun Control” that repeating the same failed policies and actions over and over again and expecting different results is the very definition of insanity.
The truth of this is very obvious this time.
GOA has them by their evidence of clandestine and illegal establishment of a searchable ATF implemented illegal gun owner registration database now being constructed from the 13+ trailers of scanned 4473 forms they’ve accumulated from closed FFLs. As ATF accelerates forcing FFLs to close based on trumped up charges of paperwork errors, one of their goals is obviously more records to enter into their databases. “Universal Background Checks” accomplishes further documentation of firearm ownership – all in preparation for future universal gun confiscation.
Here is how the President is abusing your Second Amendment rights today:
Yesterday, in Uvalde, Texas at an elementary school, beautiful, innocent children and adults were killed — and scores of others witnessed it happen.
There are parents who will never be the same. To lose a child is to have a piece of your soul ripped away forever. It’s the feeling shared by the siblings, grandparents, families, and communities left behind. I ask the nation to pray for them to give them strength in the darkness.
It’s been nearly ten years since another gunman massacred 26 people, including 20 first-graders, at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Since then, there have been over 900 incidents of gunfire reported on school grounds: Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida; Santa Fe High School in Texas; Oxford High School in Michigan; the list goes on.
And it only grows when it includes the mass shootings at places like movie theaters, houses of worship, and as we saw just ten days ago, at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York. I am sick and tired of it. We have to act — and don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage.
I’ve spent my career working to pass common-sense gun laws. We know that when we passed the assault weapons ban, mass shootings went down. We know that gun manufacturers have spent two decades marketing assault weapons which make them the largest profit. We must have the courage to stand up to the industry and the lobbies.
It’s time to turn this pain into action for every parent and for every citizen of this country. We have to make it clear to every elected official in this country that it’s time to act. It’s time for those who obstructed the way, who have blocked the common-sense gun laws, to know we will not forget.
We have to do more.
Joseph R. Biden Jr. President of the United States
But… it’s very clear that they have no interest in protecting children whether they are in school or still in the womb. In fact, when children are most at risk, they are at the most use to Leftist Democrats politically for organizing and accumulating power. That is despicable.
Real progress would be to protect our children by making it possible for all people with known backgrounds and training to actively protect our children in schools, and stop such attacks before they even start. These attacks don’t happen where trained school staff and citizens with concealed carry permits have the power to stop vicious psychopaths that would harm our children.
Instead, states spend millions on the “soft solutions” like school psychologists who are supposed to “detect” the problem children and “weed them out”, but then don’t have the power to “violate their rights” and actually separate them and prevent such attacks. Instead, the psychologists are there to deal with the post traumatic stress that should not be happening in the first place – if citizens were there to stop it in the first place.
The FBI is finally reporting that citizens DO stop such mass attacks…
There’s the first report indicating four of them that were stopped by armed citizens.
In my own state, many schools are too poorly funded to be able to afford a “school resource officer” (police man). They often assign one unarmed officer to multiple schools. They have to travel between schools and, of course, can easily be tracked by a potential attacker who would then go to the other schools.
Knowing this, our legislature voted over $8 million two years ago to fund additional psychologists to staff school systems as part of their Democrat sponsored soft solutions to “school violence”. Not a penny went to authorizing citizens or regular staff so that they could actually stop an attacker by responding with appropriate lethal force.
It was opposed by educators that were entranced with soft solutions and true hoplophobes, but GRNC helped sponsor a real solution back in 2018:
Civil insurrection anarchy is the tool of the Leftists. It was part of activating their masses during the 2020 election cycle, and was broadly supported by Leftist city government leaders across the nation as well as their media partners through widespread coordinated propaganda efforts.
Those propaganda efforts continued in the period after the election and to this day. There are coordinated primary campaigns running now that are all promoting Leftist candidates using “voting rights suppression” themes to try and activate their supporters. These are universally based in the racism that was used to motivate the anarchy in 2020. The themes are deep, consistent and continue to recycle the same propaganda.
The double standard comes in labeling their opposition’s January 6th anarchy as “insurrection”, prosecuting it with all the power of government as an organized plot against the nation, and committing widespread violation of civil rights in the name of the people in the wake of the incident. Neither the anarchy and rioting of 2020, nor the January 6th invasion of our capitol were justified, nor should be tolerated. Both represent crimes against our liberty because they attack our system – but both are the result of the long term actions of hypocritical Leftists manipulating our system, it’s judicial systems and our citizens – putting all of our safety at risk.
It’s now quite clear that our Federal justice department and law enforcement agencies have been compromised by the Leftist political leadership and the deep state that supports them to maintain their long term power within government. That power is not earned, is not appropriate, and is dangerous to our nation. The risk of this deep state, and the vast system of Federal patronage jobs runs back to the forming of our nation – was decried by Abraham Lincoln when he took office and was formalized in the late 19th century. Agency jobs are secure, influential, persist from administration to administration, survive on the graft of industry and lobbyists and were what President Trump worked to disrupt. That is why the Leftists hated him so consistently.
Today, you can be fairly certain that everything the Leftists accuse conservatives of doing, they have perfected and been committing for decades. All the lying, corruption and unscrupulous behavior. All the worst things humans do to one another. Everything that they can imagine and blame their opposition of doing.
We’ve now seen clearly that Leftists will stop at nothing to pervert our system of government to punish anyone that opposes them, and that includes compromising our justice system, nominating unqualified leaders (including judges that have been consistently reversed by higher courts because they keep “getting it wrong”), and weaponizing law enforcement to destroy individual citizens.
As gun owners, we are more familiar with this political bad behavior than most people because the Leftists have been targeting us for over 60 years. Help your fellow citizens by guiding them to get out and vote the Leftists out of power, and put some people into office that at least have a chance of destroying the entrenched destructive deep state operatives once and for all.
You may not have liked President Trump’s bullying personality, but he was on the right track on this.
The American people watched as an incompetent Leftist deep state took power just two years ago.
Leftists used their typical techniques to steal power. Unrest. Fraud. Power and influence pedaling.
Failure after failure is explained by excuse after excuse, all accompanied by attempts at misdirection and obfuscation. Yet the simple fact remains. Leftists are destroying our nation.
As gun owners, we are one of the targeted explanations Leftists use for their excuses. Crime is our fault as gun owners according to Leftists. Not gangs. Not millions of illegal border crossing invaders. Not weak on criminal Soros supported District Attorneys. Not defunding the police. Not widespread street rioting encouraged by racist insurrection supported by ignorant politicians. Not broken families without parents to raise children (see their street gang role model substitutes)… Not the ambulance and violence chasing irresponsible and lying media…
Look at the numbers! “Gun violence” is out of control”, say the Leftists. From the evidence of their incompact and corrupt “leadership”, I’d say that’s exactly what the Leftists want in America today.
These are people presumed to have their first firearm and starting with zero ammunition. If each bought 100 rounds of ammunition, that represents new demand for one billion rounds of ammunition from new customers in the Untied States.
This occurred at the time when Remington bankrupted. The holding company that included Remington also had an ammunition manufacturing plant in Arkansas. It’s one of the three major manufacturers of ammunition in the USA, and it closed down. That restricted supply at the same time the demand skyrocketed.
In the absence of supply, the distribution chain quickly emptied of product, especially of the most popular calibers.
This is not an unprecedented situation. I am a Ruger stockholder, and their financial people showed us a long term product demand curve at a recent stockholder meeting that traced demand back to the company’s inception. It showed a steady growth with sporadic peak spikes that could be associated with highly publicized and politicized events. Each of those peaks generated gun sales, and each of them generated ammunition sales and another draw down of the distribution chain.
So… a rational person would prepare for those periods of peak demand by stocking enough ammunition to last over those market draining peaks in demand. Each usually lasted between six months and a year, and they were always followed by higher demand along a smooth predictable curve (when prices continued to rise regardless of economic conditions).
In those conditions, a prudent person would look at their normal usage and store away two to three years of anticipated needed ammunition stock. That involves building the safe storage space for that stock, and protecting it from access and misuse – so it involves taking responsibility for what you are doing.
Some of us learn to reload ammunition and recycle the brass boxer primed cases with new power and primer and bullet components. That conserves resources, and lets you make very high quality precision ammunition from common resources. I tend to stock those components in more depth than loaded ammunition.
“Hoarding” is a term only used with prejudice by people that want to criticize patriots and gun owners. Buying ammunition in anticipation of future peak demands and your normal usage is just plain sensible and responsible behavior. It doesn’t stop anyone else from doing the same thing, especially when you ignore the media propaganda and panic fear they are trying to genreate.
In our representative republic, “the people” are reserved a great deal of “power”. It’s that power that the politicians irrationally lust after. Many would do anything to steal as much of that power as possible.
Never forget that, as a free citizen in our system, you are powerful.
The media, working as the cynical partner of egocentric self-centered politicians, works overtime to make you feel powerless. Nothing can make you feel more powerless and overwhelmed than the combination of the media’s broad swath of bad news every few hours and the echo chamber we now call big tech’s “social media”.
But, never forget that, as a free citizen in our system, you are powerful.
The first step is to turn it all off… All the negative messages, all the lies, all the division, ,all the coercion. Shut it off and start making your own decisions.
As gun owners, we’ve been abused by these trolls for a lot longer than the rest of our population – and we know the difference between citizens and “subjects”. We’ve already had to make the hard decisions that most people routinely avoid. We understand that the power of an individual is not for sale to lying politicians in a free society.
When the noise of social media gets too loud, shut off your phone for a few hours, ignore the constant interruptions from social media’s attention signaling and start focusing on something rewarding and interesting. Do something to help solve problems that you can control.
Understand your power to influence others, use your freedom to make decisions, spend money where it’s most effective and support people that support you.
