The current Gun Control roll out, including but not limited to: Assault Weapons Bans, Ammunition Restriction, Universal Background Checks, Ban on Lower Receiver Blanks aka 80% Lower Receivers, AR-15 Rifle Kits, AR-10 Rifle Kits, etc…is currently gaining steam across the country. Here are some recent examples:
City Level, Pittsburgh, PA (January 15, 2019):
The legislation currently being mulled by council:
- An assault weapons ban making it unlawful to man manufacture, sell, purchase, transport, carry, store, or otherwise hold in one’s possession an assault weapon within the city, such as the Colt AR-15 automatic rifle used in the Tree of Life shooting.
- An accessories, ammunition and modification ban barring items such as bump stocks, armor-penetrating bullets, sawed-off rifles and large capacity magazines often used in mass shootings.
- Adoption of Extreme Risk Protection Orders that enable courts to temporarily prohibit a person from having guns if law enforcement or immediate family members show that the individual poses a significant danger. –https://patch.com/pennsylvania/pittsburgh/proposed-pittsburgh-weapons-ammo-laws-unconstitutional-da
State Level, Oregon (January, 14, 2019)
The Oregon Legislature will consider at least seven bills that aim to tighten gun control…If passed, these bills would require firearms be securely stored when not in use, mandate firearm safety classes in public schools, and make people obtain a firearm permit before purchasing a gun, among other things….This wave of gun-related bills comes less than a year after local gun control advocates attempted—and failed—to place two gun safety measures on the 2018 ballot. –https://www.portlandmercury.com/blogtown/2019/01/14/25507592/stricter-gun-storage-do-not-sell-lists-and-other-firearm-bills-oregon-lawmakers-will-consider-this-session
State Level, Virginia (January 14, 2019)
Virginia’s Democratic Governor’s Anti-Gun Package Is Straight-Up Confiscation
The plan to ban the sale and possession of certain kinds of firearms proposed by Virginia governor Ralph Northam (D.) could affect millions of gun owners, an industry group said on Friday.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), which represents gun manufacturers and dealers, said the vague description of the legislation released by Northam on Jan. 4 would apply to most firearms currently on sale in the commonwealth.
“The legislative proposals being discussed would put most firearms beyond the reach of law-abiding Virginians who choose the firearms of their choice to protect themselves, hunt, and practice recreational target shooting,” said Lawrence G. Keane, the group’s general counsel. “That could potentially impact the availability of tens of millions of firearms.”
While short on details, Northam’s announcement said part of the proposed gun-control package would ban the “sale, purchase, possession, and transport” of undefined “assault firearms” including “any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.” Since the vast majority of semiautomatic handguns and rifles in the state are sold standard with magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds, it appears the proposed ban would affect most firearms on sale in Virginia. Additionally, the announcement of the ban did not include mention of any grandfathering to allow what NSSF estimated would be millions of Virginians who already own such firearms to legally keep them. –https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2019/01/14/virginias-democratic-governors-antigun-package-is-straightup-confiscation-n2539010
State Level, Minnesota (January 15, 2019)
Minnesota lawmakers, activists on all sides gird for new round of gun debate at Capitol
…Gun control activists and DFL legislators are expressing a newfound optimism that Democratic electoral gains in the suburbs will apply enough pressure on Republicans in those districts to pass a pair of proposed gun restrictions this year….http://www.startribune.com/minnesota-lawmakers-activists-on-all-sides-gird-for-new-round-of-gun-debate-at-capitol/504352682/
Here is the summary:
We (Defined as Second Amendment Supporters and the Firearms Industry Specifically), have been de-platformed and are currently, cut off from the online space, totally and completely. The opposition have taken total control of the online space, having enacted totalitarian censorship which has not been seen in the United States to date.
We are completely silenced, censored, and suppressed on Youtube, which has over 140+ Million Views per month and 1.8 Billion “Subscribers” – http://www.businessofapps.com/data/youtube-statistics/
We are completely silenced, censored, and suppressed on Facebook, which has over 2.2 Billion Monthly Active Users – https://www.digitaltrends.com/social-media/facebook-monthly-active-users-grows-despite-cambridge-analytica/
We have been completely silenced, censored, and suppressed on Twitter, which has over 326 Million Monthly Active Users – https://www.omnicoreagency.com/twitter-statistics/
The opposition have integrated their data operations into these social media platforms mentioned above and are monitoring the online space in real time, actively identifying and creating lists of those who are opposing them, by name, by account, by website, by email, etc…these organizations are relentless and they have unlimited funding – we have documented the veracity of the above claims extensively, from their own confidential briefings: #4PR Prong 4 Online Censorship – Media Matters Private and Confidential Memo
Question: Given the above set of circumstances is the new reality, of this there is no doubt. How then, can the Constitutional Republic continue to function?
