    Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced Monday his “assault weapons” ban will mean AR-15 owners can either register their guns with the government or hand them over. The Virginia Mercury reported Northam spokeswoman Alena Yarmosky used a statement to say, “The governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period.” Yarmosky made clear details on other gun controls will be made known before the start of the 2020 session in which Democrats take charge.

    Rates of firearm ownership and gun sales are on the rise despite calls for gun control, according to a report released Wednesday by the Firearms Industry Trade Association (FITA). Using the most recent data from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF’s) Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Reports (AFMER) to draw its conclusions, FITA’s report stated there are 422.9 million firearms in civilian possession from 1986 to 2018, along with an estimated 8.1 billion rounds of various firearms calibers and gauges. The report also noted that in a 25 year period between 1993 and 2017, the violent crime...

    It’s not often an old joke evolves into a catchphrase for mass violence, but that’s just what’s happened this past year when a variety of extremist and fringe movements and subcultures adopted the word “boogaloo” as shorthand for a future civil war. From militia groups to white supremacists, extremists on a range of online platforms talk about—and sometimes even anticipate—the “boogaloo.” The rise of “boogaloo,” and its casual acceptance of future mass violence, is disturbing. Among some extremists, it may even signify an increased willingness to engage in violence. pepe boogaloo “Boogaloo” has its roots in decades of jokes about...

    When They Come For You: How Police and Government are Trampling Our Liberties and How To Take Them Back It goes without saying that our government is responsible for a serious erosion of our Constitutional rights in recent years. Maybe it’s more accurate to say it has often gone without saying. Some of those most outspoken, historically, on these issues remain largely silent– or even take the other side in today’s Alice in Wonderland dynamic. Author and journalist David Kirby stands up where too many stay seated with his new expose: “When They Come For You: How Police and Government...

    Far-left Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam announced this week that he will aggressively work to implement extreme anti-gun laws in the state now that Democrats control the state, including confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens. During a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Northam “mentioned universal background checks, banning the sale of [semi-automatic firearms] and high-capacity magazines, restoring the law that limits purchases to one gun a month, and a red flag law that would empower a court to temporarily remove a gun from a person deemed to be a risk to himself or others,” The Washington Post reported. “We will at least...

    Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden renewed his push for an “assault weapons” ban via a Sunday night tweet. Biden wrote: “The deadliest mass shootings all have one thing in common: assault weapons. It’s past time we get these weapons of war off our streets. I’ve banned them before, and I’ll ban them again in the White House.” Although Biden equates commonly owned semiautomatic rifles with “weapons of war,” there really is no comparison between the two.

    Each time a mass shooting strikes one of our communities we grieve. We gather our loved ones. We reach for answers and clamor for action. Each time, for a moment, it feels like this time will be different. But then the news cycle rolls on. And we push down the gut-churning knowledge that it will be only a matter of time before it happens again. Between El Paso and Dayton only about 13 hours elapsed. Republican leaders try to prevent action and parrot N.R.A. messaging — as Donald Trump did last week when he said, “Mental illness and hatred pulls...

    WASHINGTON — Senate Judiciary Committee chair Lindsey Graham told BuzzFeed News he will start crafting legislation next week to expand police powers to preemptively seize firearms from people believed to be a danger to themselves or others. Graham is angling to get bipartisan support for his bill, and has been in discussions with Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal. Neither would outline specifics Thursday beyond saying it will be an original piece of legislation. Graham said work on hammering out the contents of the bill will begin next week.
  • When it comes to our guns, Democrats, ‘Molon Labe’

    The National Sentinel ^ | 4/9/19 | Geoff Metcalf
    “Molon Labe” is reportedly the response given to the Persian king Xerxes by the Spartan king Leonidas when Xerxes demanded that the Greek force lay down their weapons. It is generally translated as, “Come and get them.” There are consequences to everything we do in life. Regardless of whether the action is that of an individual or a group, ‘something’ will happen. Recent unsubtle threats by Democrats (specifically Speaker Nancy Pelosi) have woke many from silence. States actively legislating to confiscate firearms should startle anyone with even a passing familiarity with history. That the Speaker of the House threatened to...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says firearm confiscation laws portend a way that Democrats and Republicans can “come together.” CNN reported that Graham has long supported red flag laws, which allow a court to issue firearm confiscation orders for individuals deemed a threat to themselves or others. House Democrats have already passed legislation during this Congress to criminalize private gun sales and extend the instant background check for firearm purchases. They are now pressing for $50 million in annual funding to bring academia into the gun control push. The Democrats have also been vocal in their support for...

    We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple. A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if...

    Are you aware that the U.S. recently agreed to “full implementation” of the United Nations Gun Control Pact? Even if your country never completely bows to the rule of the United Nations, it is clear that there is an agenda in play to disarm Americans. They are looking for any excuse they can to keep you from owning a gun. Why? Because in a country with more guns than people, the government feels threatened. They struggle to maintain power over the masses.

    The president and CEO of Levi Strauss & Co., Chip Bergh, has announced that the iconic company, "a pioneer of the American West," will donate more than $1 million to gun-control groups to help end "America's gun violence epidemic," a step the NRA denounced as a "particularly sad episode in the current surge in corporate virtue-signaling." In his announcement, through a commentary in Fortune magazine, CEO Bergh stated that Levi's is "known the world over as a pioneer of the American West and one of the great symbols of American freedom." Nonetheless, "as business leaders with power in the public...

    This picture, from the facebook page of MSG Firearms, shows a student with an anti-NRA sign while wearing a hoodie with the motto ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ and the date 480 B.C. ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ is what the Spartan king, Leonidas I is said to have told the Persian Emperor Xerxes I, when Xerxes demanded that they lay down their arms. It means, “Come and Take Them!” The same motto was used by Texicans in the battle of Gonzales in the first battle of the Texas war for independence. That war started with the Mexican tyrant Santa Anna attempted to disarm the Texas...

    Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) on Wednesday said he intends to introduce legislation next week to ban assault weapons. Ryan Schachter, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School whose brother was killed in last week’s shooting there, asked Deutch during a CNN town hall event what he would do to ensure he will be safe at school. “We’re going to introduce legislation to make sure that assault weapons are illegal in every part of this country,” Deutch said, prompting applause from the audience. Deutch was referring to legislation from Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) that has dozens of Democratic cosponsors. He...
