    At least 46 Oregonians have been ordered to surrender their guns under a new type of court order intended to stop suicides and mass shootings, law enforcement and court officials testified to state lawmakers Wednesday. Ten of the cases affect people in Multnomah County, where authorities have seized more than 50 guns from people found to pose a danger to themselves or others, Mike Reese, the county sheriff, told a joint meeting of the Senate and House judiciary committees. Washington County follows with at least eight cases, then Josephine County, with at least seven, according to documents submitted to the...

    Police in the Democrat haven of Maryland shot and killed a man in his home on Monday while serving a “protective order” under a new law which allows them to seize people’s guns without due process. Since the new gun confiscation law went into effect on October 1st, police have carried out 114 such confiscation orders, which comes out to over 3 such seizures every day.

    Multnomah County “sheriff” Mike Reese is now taking heat for failing to notify I.C.E. when he had an illegal alien in custody up on assault charges. Those charges were dropped, of course, and the illegal alien was set free, only for said illegal alien to go on to murder his wife by stabbing her to death and dumping her body in a ditch. Multnomah County is home to Portland, Oregon. ... A man accused of murdering his wife and leaving her body in a ditch is at the center of a firestorm between ICE and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office....
  • South Africa 'unexpectedly' slides into recession as agricultural production plummets

    Full title: "South Africa 'unexpectedly' slides into recession as agricultural production plummets in wake of plans to seize white-owned farmland." Gee, who could have possibly anticipated that threatening to steal (that is, expropriate without compensation) land from farmers who have worked it for generations would cause farmers to cut back on planting? Thus, we have Bloomberg telling us, "South Africa's economy unexpectedly shrank for the second consecutive quarter in the three months through June." The recession, based on a second-quarter decline in GDP of 0.8%, is entirely due to a steep decline in agricultural production: "the agriculture market fell back...

    Is it any surprise that, because Donald Trump criticized the new land reform policy of South Africa, he’s being called a racist? It’s just another example of the fact that Trump can do no right in the eyes of the left – even when, in this case, he is speaking out against a policy that essentially calls for the eradication/killing of white farmers in that beleaguered country, as well as the state confiscating their land. When Trump learned of the proposed plan endorsed by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, he tweeted that he has directed Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State,...

    President Trump has inspired the Deep State Media (DSM) to create another firestorm.  This time, his racism is supposedly being revealed because he asked his secretary of state to "closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large-scale killing of farmers."  The president apparently was moved to ask his secretary of state to study the issue as a result of a Fox News program that dealt with the subject.  State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters that secretary of state Mike Pompeo and Trump had discussed the issue and Pompeo would "take a look at it."  The president has not drawn...

    "Strongman politics are ascendant," Barack Obama warned in South Africa. He spoke passionately about "the politics of fear and resentment" at the Mandela Lecture. He worried that we were entering a world, “where might makes right and politics is a hostile competition between tribes and races and religions.” While the media used the remarks to attack Trump's meeting with Putin, Obama had shared a stage with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa who had come to power promising to seize land from white farmers. Ramaphosa was the latest in a series of ANC strongmen, including his predecessor, an alleged rapist, beginning...

    Image from southafricatoday  On June 7th, 2018, the Constitutional Court in South Africa, overruled a lower court's decision that parts of South Africa's gun laws were unconstitutional. The laws were absolute, and did not allow for appeal or legitimate reasons for delay, such as hospitalization or death. From citizen.co.za: Section 24 of the Act requires that any person who seeks to renew a licence must do so 90 days before its expiry date. Section 28 stipulates that if a firearm licence has been cancelled‚ the firearm must be disposed of or forfeited to the state. A 60-day timeframe was...

    Police in New Jersey have officially crossed the [thin blue] line and literally attempted to confiscate guns from an army veteran without a warrant. But it didn’t go as planned, because Leonard Cottrell Jr. refused to comply with the orders of the cops. Eventually, all gun confiscation will be carried out by the police; who of “don’t make the laws, they just enforce them,” and Cottrell found this out the hard way. After serving two tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom overseas, Cottrell found himself at end of the state’s tyrannical oppression and gun elimination scheme.

    In a surprise, but lawful move, Lake County Circuit Court blocked an unconstitutional ban on alleged "assault weapons" and high capacity magazines with a temporary injunction in the small town of Deerfield, Illinois just hours before the ban was to go into effect. The 19th Judicial Circuit Court in Lake County, Illinois rendered the decision on Tuesday after gun owner rights activists sued the city after a ban that was unanimously passed by all six of the town's board members on April 2. Vice News reports: Gun groups, including the National Rifle Association of Illinois, requested a temporary restraining order...

    Last month, April, 2018, the California Department of Justice raided prominent Kern County Farmer, Jeffrey Scott Kirschenmann. The justification for the raid was pictures the farmer had sent to the Department of Justice in an attempt to register a rifle. The DOJ claimed the rifle was an illegally modified “Assault weapon”.  During the raid, the DOJ confiscated 230 rounds of ammunition, a dozen guns, two objects claimed to be “silencers”, and some sort of trigger activator. There is reason to be wary of the accuracy of the claims of what was found during the raid. California law is very complex....

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | 06/07/18 | Bill Gravlin
    The Times Editorial Board tells us it’s obvious that easy access to guns results in more suicides and homicides, and there are 36,000 firearm deaths each year nationally. If we want to reduce that number, we have to make firearms less accessible. But look at the size of the problem: In our state alone, more than one-quarter of households own firearms. That’s a lot of guns already in circulation. How do you reduce the number of guns that people already possess? With a buy-back program? But if you pay someone, say, $250 for an old revolver, what’s to prevent that...

    Initiative Petition #43 is slowly making its way through the ballot measure process in Oregon. After a massive response of challenges to the “draft ballot title” were submitted a couple of weeks ago, the state “attorney general” has now issued the “certified ballot title” that reads “Prohibits “assault weapons” (defined), “large capacity magazines” (defined), unless registered with state police. Criminal penalties.” As previously reported, this ballot measure, should it eventually pass, would outlaw 95% of the guns that are currently out there, and instantly turn thousands grampas into felons for having an old tube fed .22 Marlin in the attic...

    Defense Attorneys in Dallas said some of their clients had their guns, motorcycles, vehicles and other property returned to them once their case was refused, Harris said for some reason he's still left without answers. One of the Twin Peaks bikers arrested said even though it's been three years since the deadly shooting, police still have not given him back his personal belongings that were seized. Patrick Harris case was thrown out by District Attorney Abel Reyna, but he said he's having a hard time putting this all behind him without having what he said is legally his. Defense Attorneys...

    In Oregon, a new initiative from a religious group is taking it a step forward. They want to ban any semiautomatic rifle with a detachable magazine, and that can hold more than ten rounds. They also want current owners of these firearms, law-abiding Americans, to take them out of the state, register them, sell it to a FFL dealer, destroy it, or turn them over. That’s right, folks—full-blown gun confiscation. Right now, the anti-gun church group is collecting signatures. The hope is that they fall short (via KGW8):

    We've been covering the ongoing tragedy for white farmers in South Africa for more than a year, culminating in a law passed by the radical South African parliament that expropriates white farmland that's been in the same family for hundreds of years without compensation. Predictably, this has set off a wave of violence against white South African farmers that has led to the death of one white every five days, according to Newsweek: Activists say South African authorities are tacitly approving attacks on the country's white farmers, with one being murdered every five days, and the police turning a blind eye...

    The recent gun control debate ignited by last month’s tragedy in Parkland, Florida, has liberals trotting out what has become a favorite Leftist talking point - Australia’s 1996 National Agreement on Firearms, an act which, among other things, severely restricted semi-automatic rifles after after a similarly horrific mass shooting. Liberals consider the cornerstone of the law, a massive forced gun buyback program, a “common sense” approach to what might otherwise be perceived by gun owners as an unwelcome curtailing of traditional American freedoms. Sure, the government may be forcing gun owners to make the transaction, but exchanging money for items...

    It is no longer a conspiracy theory spawned by deplorable bitter clingers, but a creeping reality spawned by shootings law enforcement could have prevented but didn't. The Illinois House has passed legislation requiring 18- to 20-year-olds to give up certain legally purchased and legally owned firearms: A bill requiring 18-20 year olds to hand over or transfer ownership of heretofore legally possessed "assault weapons" is gaining sponsors in the Illinois Senate after passing the House last month. The bill, HB 1465, was sponsored in the House by Rep. Michelle Mussman (D-Schaumburg) and passed by a vote of 64-51 on February...

Comparing recent school shootings to the violence and discrimination black students faced after the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Johnson wrote that "fear and terror still exist in our children’s classrooms" because of the "National Rifle Association and the politicians [sic] that support them."
