This armed citizen gets it.
The City Council had better get it too.
And, the GCA, FOPA, and all other US gun laws enacted post-Second Amendment. Trump should make that a signature piece as soon as he starts his second term. In AP Land, Biden has a plan of his own.
According to a National Shooting Sports Foundation report on firearm production figures, Americans in total own at least 20 million rifles and 150 million ammunition magazines that would be subject to the NFA regulations if Biden’s plan were put in place.
Under the NFA, each rifle and each magazine would be taxed at $200 per item. On top of that, gun owners would be subjected to complicated paper work and an identification process.
Trump should prevent this from ever happening by Executive Order – after he finishes off the would-be election thieves and enemy combatants.
Any movement that goes on long enough or gets big enough eventually turns into a racket. The NRA is no different.
The National Rifle Association’s former second-in-command is breaking with the group’s orthodoxy and calling for universal background checks and so-called red flag laws in a new book assailing the organization as more focused on money and internal intrigue than the Second Amendment, while thwarting constructive dialogue on gun violence.
The former executive, Joshua L. Powell, who was fired by the N.R.A. in January, reinforces the kind of criticism made of the organization by gun control groups and state regulators, but it is the first critical look at its recent history by such a high-ranking insider.
It’s a good thing that gun control is dead in Amerika. With an all-out civil war bubbling hot, all sides now agree that they need as many guns as possible. That’s a good thing, right???
PS: WP, you know who uses “blocks?” Blockheads! Get it…
If I thought the US would last long enough, I’d recommend Rittenhouse 2040. He’s a hero and he
deserves a has a high place of honor in the defense and leadership of the free people of America. He has a legal team willing to fight the ridiculous charges against him and the evil government behind them. His attorneys’ comprehensive statement:
VERNON HILLS, ILLINOIS / August 28, 2020 / Pierce Bainbridge is honored to represent 17-year old Antioch, Illinois resident Kyle Rittenhouse, who has suddenly found himself at the center of a national firestorm and charged with murder after defending himself from a relentless, vicious and potentially deadly mob attack in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
On August 25th, 2020, Kenosha spiraled into chaos following the Jacob Blake shooting. The Kenosha Mayor and Wisconsin Governor failed to provide a basic degree of law and order to protect the citizens and community buildings in Kenosha. The city burned as mobs destroyed buildings and property, and looters stole whatever they wanted. Rioters defaced storefronts, the courthouse, and many other public and private locations across the city.
After Kyle finished his work that day as a community lifeguard in Kenosha, he wanted to help clean up some of the damage, so he and a friend went to the local public high school to remove graffiti by rioters. Later in the day, they received information about a call for help from a local business owner, whose downtown Kenosha auto dealership was largely destroyed by mob violence. The business owner needed help to protect what he had left of his life’s work, including two nearby mechanic’s shops. Kyle and a friend armed themselves with rifles due to the deadly violence gripping Kenosha and many other American cities, and headed to the business premises. The weapons were in Wisconsin and never crossed state lines.
Upon arrival, Kyle and others stood guard at the mechanic’s shop across from the auto dealership to prevent further damage or destruction. Later that night, substantially after the city’s 8:00 p.m. curfew expired without consequence, the police finally started to attempt to disperse a group of rioters. In doing so, they maneuvered a mass of individuals down the street towards the auto shops. Kyle and others on the premises were verbally threatened and taunted multiple times as the rioters passed by, but Kyle never reacted. His intent was not to incite violence, but simply to deter property damage and use his training to provide first aid to injured community members.
After the crowd passed the premises and Kyle believed the threat of further destruction had passed, he became increasingly concerned with the injured protestors and bystanders congregating at a nearby gas station with no immediate access to medical assistance or help from law enforcement. Kyle headed in that direction with a first aid kit. He sought out injured persons, rendered aid, and tried to guide people to others who could assist to the extent he could do so amid the chaos. By the final time Kyle returned to 2 the gas station and confirmed there were no more injured individuals who needed assistance, police had advanced their formation and blocked what would have been his path back to the mechanic’s shop. Kyle then complied with the police instructions not to go back there. Kyle returned to the gas station until he learned of a need to help protect the second mechanic’s shop further down the street where property destruction was imminent with no police were nearby.
As Kyle proceeded towards the second mechanic’s shop, he was accosted by multiple rioters who recognized that he had been attempting to protect a business the mob wanted to destroy. This outraged the rioters and created a mob now determined to hurt Kyle. They began chasing him down. Kyle attempted to get away, but he could not do so quickly enough. Upon the sound of a gunshot behind him, Kyle turned and was immediately faced with an attacker lunging towards him and reaching for his rifle. He reacted instantaneously and justifiably with his weapon to protect himself, firing and striking the attacker.
Kyle stopped to ensure care for the wounded attacker but faced a growing mob gesturing towards him. He realized he needed to flee for his safety and his survival. Another attacker struck Kyle from behind as he fled down the street. Kyle turned as the mob pressed in on him and he fell to the ground. One attacker kicked Kyle on the ground while he was on the ground. Yet another bashed him over the head with a skateboard. Several rioters tried to disarm Kyle. In fear for his life and concerned the crowd would either continue to shoot at him or even use his own weapon against him, Kyle had no choice but to fire multiple rounds towards his immediate attackers, striking two, including one armed attacker. The rest of the mob began to disperse upon hearing the additional gunshots.
Kyle got up and continued down the street in the direction of police with his hands in the air. He attempted to contact multiple police officers, but they were more concerned with the wounded attackers. The police did not take Kyle into custody at that time, but instead they indicated he should keep moving. He fully cooperated, both then and later that night when he turned himself in to the police in his hometown, Antioch, Illinois.
Kyle did nothing wrong. He exercised his God-given, Constitutional, common law and statutory law right to self-defense.
However, in a reactionary rush to appease the divisive, destructive forces currently roiling this country, prosecutors in Kenosha did not engage in any meaningful analysis of the facts, or any in-depth review of available video footage (some of which shows that a critical state’s witness was not even at the area where the shots were fired); this was not a serious investigation. Rather, after learning Kyle may have had conservative political viewpoints, they immediately saw him as a convenient target who they could use as a scapegoat to distract from the Jacob Blake shooting and the government’s abject failure to ensure basic law and order to citizens. Within 24-36 hours, he was charged with multiple homicide counts.
Kyle now has the best legal representation in the country. With help from Nicholas Sandmann attorney L. Lin Wood, Pierce Bainbridge and multiple top-tier criminal defense lawyers in Wisconsin immediately offered representation to Kyle.
Today, his legal team was successful in working with the public defender to obtain a several-week continuance of his extradition hearing to September 25th. This at least partially slows down the rush to judgment by a government and media that is determined to assassinate his character and destroy his life.
Kyle, his family, the team at Pierce Bainbridge and his other lawyers intend to fight these charges every step of the way, take the case to trial and win an acquittal on the grounds of self-defense before a jury of his peers.
The legal fees and other costs of Kyle’s defense will be provided through donations to #FightBack Foundation Inc., a Texas 501(c)(4) foundation created by John Pierce and Lin Wood to protect lawabiding American citizens whose rights are being trampled on by state and local governments that are more concerned with appeasing mobs than protecting those rights.
Pierce Bainbridge founder John Pierce praised Kyle’s strength and resilience. “A 17-year old child should not have to take up arms in America to protect life and property. That is the job of state and local governments. However, those governments have failed, and law-abiding citizens have no choice but to protect their own communities as their forefathers did at Lexington and Concord in 1775. Kyle is not a racist or a white supremacist. He is a brave, patriotic, compassionate law-abiding American who loves his country and his community. He did nothing wrong. He defended himself, which is a fundamental right of all Americans given by God and protected by law. He is now in the crosshairs of institutional forces that are much more powerful than him. But he will stand up to them and fight not only for himself, but for all Americans and their beloved Constitution. We will never leave his side until he is victorious in that fight.”
Further updates will be provided as the investigation and legal proceedings unfold.
The globopedos started this; we must finish it. And a child shall lead them. Kyle did nothing wrong. Free Kyle! Follow his example.
We know that guns deter ordinary thug criminals or render them harmless. Now, in Michigan, it may just be that they are serving their original purpose: deterring tyranny.
Michigan closed down its capitol in Lansing on Thursday and canceled its legislative session rather than face the possibility of an armed protest and death threats against Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
The gathering, meant to advocate opening the state for business despite the coronavirus pandemic, followed one April 30 that resulted in pictures of protesters clad in military-style gear and carrying long guns crowding the statehouse. They confronted police and taunted lawmakers.
It was always this easy. Make them feel the fear they’d have us all live in. Let this spread to all levels of government and everywhere around the land! Keep ’em honest.
The gun grabbers never stop, as Daisy Luther explains. Watch what happens in VA, the “laws” and the resistance, for your state’s future.
Since the above article was written, it should be noted that 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Counties are at 80 and counting. One sheriff has even vowed to deputize citizens should these unconstitutional laws pass.
After the public outcry, Governor Northam has said a provision will be added for current gun owners.
“In this case, 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,” Northam spokeswoman Alena Yarmosky said in a statement Monday evening.

Good try, but no cigar.
Gun owners aren’t going to take this lying down.
We’ve written before about Second Amendment sanctuaries popping up across the nation, and now Virginia is joining the fight. According to Gun Rights Watch, practically the entire state is saying NO.
Good and well. Read about the threats. Now, maybe it’s time to stop worrying about them taking our guns. Maybe it’s time to start planning for us to confiscate theirs.
The NRA generally does good work. My experience, working with them on legal cases here and there, was positive. However, their surveys get a little old. This one popped up on the side while I read something at Taki’s Mag. I’ll go through a few, shunning the simple “yes” and “no” answer for the real truth. Answers italicized.
NATIONAL GUN OWNERS SURVEY
1. Do you agree that the Second Amendment guarantees your individual right to own a firearm?
No. It merely states that the right “shall not be infringed,” which it is anyway, thereby kind of mooting the point – much like the rest of the Parchment.
2. Do you support the confirmation of pro-Second Amendment judges to the U.S. Supreme Court and lower federal courts?
I support abolishing the Supreme Court and lower federal courts.
3. Do you support laws that protect your fundamental right to use a firearm to defend yourself and your loved ones from a violent criminal attacker?
Not sure which I support less: laws or violent criminals.
4. Should Congress and the states eliminate so-called “gun free zones” that leave innocent citizens defenseless against terrorists and violent criminals?
Better to abolish Congress and the states at this point, thereby eliminating the worst of the terrorists and criminals.
5. Should Congress pass a law that gives law-abiding citizens the right to carry a firearm across state lines?
Already got one! It’s called the Second Amendment. Duh.
6. Do you oppose any United Nations treaty that strips the U.S. of its sovereignty and gives U.N. bureaucrats the power to regulate every rifle, pistol, and shotgun you own?
I do not recognize the United Nations as anything other than an international criminal syndicate. Blue helmets are highly visible though.
7. Do you agree that law-abiding citizens should be forced to submit to mandatory gun registration or else forfeit their guns and their freedom?
For safety, we should register, confiscate, and destroy all government guns.
8. Should NRA direct critical resources toward stopping anti-gun billionaires like Michael Bloomberg who are spending millions of dollars to destroy your Second Amendment freedom in states around the country?
Bloomberg and his kind should be immediately and permanently deported from America.
9. Would you vote for a politician…
No. That one was easy.
10. Would you vote for a politician who…
There are more, but that’s all the fun I can stand today. The NRA, like all else “conservative”, is hopelessly stuck in the museum. It isn’t 1994 anymore. The Nation on which they had based the “N” in NRA is dead and gone and these cucks did nothing to conserve it as it died. They would do better to start planning for the future – after the collapse and the rebuild. My suggestion would be to use the language from the existing 2A, but add a capital felony for anyone who ever tries to circumvent it. Oh, but please send some money so they can stop Bloomberg from appointing judges who will blah, blah, blah.
Great survey though!
There, I did my part for the entanglement with Israel. Oops… wrong story (but, y’all go vote on Tuesday, anyway!). Meaningful! M-E-A-N-I-N-G-F-U-L. Gun control.
The Trump administration is expected to announce its proposal to curb gun violence as soon as next week. But after the Democrats’ fiery debate on gun control, what President Trump will support is far from clear.
The White House has been talking to a trio of lawmakers: Democrats Chris Murphy and Joe Manchin and Republican Pat Toomey. They all support tougher background checks.
After the recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, Mr. Trump called for gun control legislation.
“I’m talking about meaningful, write that word, meaningful, meaningful background checks,” Mr. Trump said on August 9.
Maybe he’ll propose repealing FOPA? Or the horror of 65? We’ll find out soon! However it happens, I bet that treaty will pass the Senate 100-0!
