Democrats Move to Take Away Constitutional Right in the Dead of Night

Democrats said they wouldn’t – now they’re going to take them all!

If you care at all about your rights, you need to know what the left is up to.

In a recent election, they took control of Virginia’s state government. What they are pushing now is an example of what they want to do around the country.

For decades, they’ve tried to chip away at Americans’ right to self-defense.

Now we’re seeing how far they’re willing to go when they get total power. Read more…

Trump Vows To ‘Always’ Uphold 2A

During a rally with supporters in New Hampshire, President Trump promised unequivocal support for the Second Amendment. “We can’t make it harder for good, solid, law-abiding citizens to protect themselves,” President Trump argued. “We will always uphold the right to self-defense, and we will always uphold the Second Amendment.” He also made clear his stance that “It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger. It’s the person that pulls the trigger.” Unlike the Left which just wants to confiscate guns, President Trump is focused on improving mental healthcare resources and getting to the root of the problem in the wake of the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings. We don’t expect any gun-grabbing bills to get signed into law in the near future.

Here’s more from The Hill…

President Trump on Thursday told supporters in New Hampshire that he would “always uphold the Second Amendment” and suggested that the construction of new mental health facilities would help curb gun violence.

The president lamented the lack of mental health institutions as he spoke about the need to keep guns away from people with mental illnesses. The comments come as the White House and Congress examine new gun laws after recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas.

“It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger. It’s the person that pulls the trigger,” Trump said, earning a roar of approval from the crowd in Manchester.

Gun Grab Coming in September

Be ready to “cling to your guns and Constitution” because according to Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), “assault weapons” ban legislation is coming in fast and furious in September when Congress returns from recess. Along with an attack on scary-looking guns, background checks and “red flag” laws are also up for consideration. During an appearance on the Louisville, Kentucky, Terry Meiners Show, McConnell made it clear that something will pass commenting, “What we can’t do is fail to pass something.”

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) indicated an “assault weapons” ban and other gun controls would be “front and center” when the Senate reconvenes in September.

The Courier-Journal reports that McConnell was a guest on the Louisville, KY, Terry Meiners Show where he said, “What we can’t do is fail to pass something,” adding, “The urgency of this is not lost on any of us.”

NPR reports that McConnell addressed an “assault weapons” ban, saying: “We had that ban for about a 10-year period. There’s a good deal of dispute about whether it actually had an impact or not.

Beto Supports Gun Confiscation

In case anyone was wondering, yes, White House wannabe “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) confirms his plans to confiscate our guns. In a recent interview, the arm-waving Texan revealed his support for gun licensing and mandatory buybacks. “At the end of the day, if it’s going to save lives, if it’s going to prevent the kinds of tragedies that we saw in El Paso, Gilroy, and Dayton…then let’s move forward and do it.” We hasten to remind Beto that Chicago and California have failed to stop mass shootings despite some of the most draconian licensing regulations and purchasing requirements.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke told podcast host Jon Favreau that he supports the idea of making gun licensing and mandatory buybacks part of the conversation revolving around the El Paso and Dayton shootings.

Favreau commented on gun licensing and mandatory buybacks in Australia and asked if O’Rourke would support them as president?

O’Rourke responded, “Yes. And I’m open to them right now as a candidate.”

California Town Wants to be a 2A Sanctuary

The tiny town of Needles, California, wants to be a “sanctuary city” for the Second Amendment in the otherwise Left coast gun-control stronghold. The city council voted unanimously last month declaring it as such and cited encroachment of the state’s strict gun laws on residents’ constitutional gun rights. The city also wants a new gun law tweaked that outlaws residents from bringing in ammunition from other states when the nearest California stores are more than 100 miles away, while Arizona is “local.” Look for more municipalities to push back against Leftist collectivism, which may trigger key SCOTUS decisions in the near future.

Here’s more from AP News…

The Old West desert town of Needles, California, is where the beleaguered Joad family crossed the Colorado River into California in John Steinbeck’s classic novel “The Grapes of Wrath” and was a boyhood home to “Peanuts” creator Charles Schulz.

These days, Needles is gaining notoriety for another reason. Leaders have declared it a “sanctuary city” for people who believe California’s strict gun laws have encroached too much on their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

The City Council in the town of 5,000 that borders Arizona and is a few miles from the southern tip of Nevada last month unanimously declared Needles a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary City.” The vote had no immediate practical impact on how guns are treated in the city.

Dem Pounces on Shooting to Promo Gun Control

Surprising exactly no one, committed anti-gunner Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY) used the weekend’s Virginia Beach shooting to promote MORE gun control. Nadler tweeted: “We are nearly 100 days since @HouseJudiciary passed #HR8, the universal background checks bill, in the House, and today there has been another mass shooting in America. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action now! #EnoughIsEnough #EndGunViolence.” Except the .45 caliber handguns used in the rampage were legally purchased, leaving it unclear how this shooting bolsters the Left’s argument for HR8 “universal background checks bill.” In other words, this is a typical knee-jerk response from liberals who haven’t been “mugged by reality” yet.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Friday, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) sent out the following tweet regarding the Virginia Beach shooting:

We are nearly 100 days since @HouseJudiciary passed #HR8, the universal background checks bill, in the House and today there has been another mass shooting in America. Thoughts and prayers are not enough, we need action now. #EnoughIsEnough #EndGunViolence

The tweet has nearly 13,000 “likes,” and has been retweeted 5,300 times.

According to CBS News, the Virginia Beach gunman used two .45 caliber handguns in his rampage.

Cory Booker Wants Americans “Thrown in Jail”

Senator Cory Booker’s (D-NJ) got a treat in store for all of America’s freedom-loving gun owners if he wins the White House in 2020. He wants to throw them all in jail if they refuse to hand over their firearms to the confiscation police, i.e., he refused to correct a CNN host when she asked what he would do about those individuals refusing to comply with the gun grab. Booker argued simply: “These weapons should not exist.” According to the latest poll, Booker is in eighth place in the overcrowded field of about 637 Democratic hopefuls. For some odd reason, Americans don’t like having politicians take their stuff. Go figure why Booker isn’t leading the pack.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) seems to be struggling to get much traction for his 2020 presidential bid. According to prediction market website PredictIt.org, Booker is currently the eighth most likely Democrat to win the presidential nomination. And in one recent Democratic presidential primary poll that shows former Vice President Joe Biden with a massive 32% lead over socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Booker barely registers with merely 3% support.

In other words, Booker needs a spark — perhaps a spark to energize the increasingly hard-left Democratic Party activist base. In a CNN appearance on Monday, Booker may have tried to generate that spark by offering a (tyrannical and anti-constitutional) paean to the vehemently anti-Second Amendment partisans of the Democratic Party base.

Mikhael Smits of The Washington Free Beacon tweeted Booker’s underlying CNN clip and noted: “Cory Booker won’t say whether he’ll jail Americans who refuse to surrender firearms they lawfully purchased if he’s president.”

AOC Slammed for Knee-Jerk Political Targeting

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is in hot water from the Right after blaming the Republican Senate on the heels of the terrorist attack on a California synagogue. AOC tweeted: “We have a responsibility to love + protect our neighbors. The longer the Senate delays holding a vote on #HR8, the more we put Americans at risk.” AOC, like so many of her Leftist friends, refuses to admit the obvious: California boasts some of the most draconian gun control laws in the union. Memo to the Left: criminals break laws.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Social media users slammed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Saturday after she came out and attacked the Republican-controlled Senate and pushed for gun control immediately in the wake of the horrible white nationalist attack on a synagogue in California, which left one person dead and three others injured.

A 19-year-old terrorist opened fire on people inside the Chabad of Poway synagogue before being shot at by an off duty U.S. Border Patrol agent who is now said to have prevented a significantly worse tragedy from taking place.

Immediately following the tragic attack, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “Heartbroken to hear of the San Diego synagogue shooting, particularly so on this final day of Passover. We have a responsibility to love + protect our neighbors. The longer the Senate delays holding a vote on #HR8, the more we put Americans at risk.”
