Podcast – A Good Crisis is Tailor Made for a Gun Grab

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The New Zealand Mosque shootings was a crisis, tailor made for a State crack down on freedom. But despite the gun grab in New Zealand, liberal politicians have insisted forever, that they don’t want to take away our guns here in the U.S.

But it’s just like socialism. Years ago, if someone on the right accused someone on the left of being a socialist, it would have sparked outrage. How dare we try to label them as socialist. They would say that we’re just fearmongering.

Now, not many years later, socialism has all but been entirely embraced by the left. I mean, they’ve always embraced it in some form. It’s just now they’re admitting to it, and no longer shy away from the “S” word. Socialism of course.

And like socialism, American gun-grabbers have begun to take the mask of reason off. However, the one thing standing in their way is the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which is unique and superior to all others, and not subject to the crisis du jour.

Thank Heavens for that. read more

Without the Second Amendment, We Would be New Zealand

This is just one more demonstration of the sheer genius of our Founders. They understood human nature as few have. And thank God for George Mason, Elbridge Gerry and the anti-Federalists, who insisted that a Bill of Rights be added to our Constitution, for without it, we would be in the same predicament as are law-abiding New Zealand gun owners.

from Conservative Review:

New Zealand’s knee-jerk gun ban is EXACTLY why we have the Second Amendment

Thank goodness we have the Second Amendment. I say that a lot, but I’m especially grateful after seeing the latest news out of New Zealand.

Less than a week after the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand has moved to ban and confiscate semi-automatic long guns. read more

House Passes Useless Gun Bill

from the Blaze:

House takes advantage of Dem majority to pass sweeping gun control bill

It doesn’t stand much chance with the Senate, or Trump

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday that would require a federal background check for all firearms purchases, including those between private citizens, according to NPR.

The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 passed 240-190. It is referred to as “bipartisan” because it has five Republican co-sponsors, and eight Republicans voted in favor of the bill in total. read more

WND Exclusive – Dem’s New Ammo Tax to Result in More Deaths?

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily: 

Don’t ever let anyone convince you that all Democrats are complete fiscal or economic ignoramuses. It may just seem that way listening to the new darling of the radical left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

For sure, there appear to be some economic principles that just escape them, like the impact of Medicare-for-All, but at least some Democrats understand basic tax policy and the effects of taxation. At least some understand that if you want more of something, tax it less, and if you want less, tax it more.

Take, for example, Connecticut Democratic state Rep. Jillian Gilchrest’s new ammunition tax proposal. She wants to increase the state ammunition tax to 50 percent. Currently, ammo is taxed at the same rate as every other consumer good, and that just won’t do. read more

State Senator Open Carries Gun After Colleague ‘Swarmed’ By Immigration Activists

What a Virginia state senator chose to wear and how she chose to wear it to a committee meeting on Tuesday has earned national attention.

A day after Capitol Police were called to the scene when a Republican was “swarmed” by pro-immigration activists angered by his anti-“sanctuary cities” bill, first-term State Sen. Amanda Chase (R-Chesterfield) decided it was a good time to not just conceal carry, as she often does, but open carry — as a “deterrent for over-exuberant folks.” read more

Video Podcast – Another Round of Gun Bans

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The leftist media circulated a narrative about mass-shootings last year in which they claimed there were 307 mass shootings in 2018.

Of course, almost none of them were actual mass-shootings, but it’s enough to prompt democrats into another round of gun bans.

Senator Diane Feinstein and her cast or cronies have introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019. read more

Fairness Gone Wild

This has to be one of the most absurd stories I’ve seen. Now we’re supposed to be fair to home invaders? Please!

from the Blaze:

Grandfather of Oklahoma teen killed by homeowner in burglary says AR-15 made for ‘unfair’ fight

Three Oklahoma teenagers were killed last week when they broke into a house and were met by a homeowner with an AR-15. Now the grandfather of one of the teenagers is speaking out about his grandson’s death.

According to KTUL-TV, Leroy Schumacher, grandfather of 17-year-old Jacob Redfearn, believes the death of Redfearn was unjustified because the homeowner’s AR-15 gave him an unfair advantage over the three burglars. read more

Video Podcast – RINO Kasich and his Veto Pen

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Good news for guns rights advocates and citizens of the State of Ohio. Outgoing Governor John Kasich was unable to prevail as he vetoed a bill involving self-defense shootings.

The son-of-a-mailman vetoed House Bill HB 228. In short the bill allows self-defense shooters the right of being considered innocent until proven guilty. The Governor prefers it the other way – guilty until proven innocent.

Thankfully the House and Senate overrode his veto by a wide margin.

I also discuss two upcoming bills in Ohio to be voted on in 2019. The stand-your-ground bill and a red flag law.
