Brady, CSGV Try to Spin Capitol Riot Into More Restrictions on Gun Rights

File this one under ‘Never let a crisis go to waste.’ Kris Brown of the Brady Campaign along with her fellow flying monkeys at the CSGV and Team ENOUGH are spinning up a little fund raiser online rally this afternoon to take advantage of Wednesday’s mostly peaceful riot and incursion at the Capitol.

Never mind that no one other than law enforcement had guns during the melee Wednesday and the only shot fired came from a Capitol Police officer. Oh wait…one civilian was arrested a mile and half away from the Capitol for illegal gun possession, but he’s allegedly an Antifa member.

…Robert Grimes, 54, of Cadillac says his son is not a supporter of President Donald Trump and should not be associated with those Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol building. His son keeps an eye on groups such as the Proud Boys and was there to protest the Trump faction, he said.

“We’re a very progressive liberal family … if there’s any reason my son was even present, it’s because of his stand against what a lot of those folks who did horrible things yesterday (believe) — and I’m still sick to my stomach (from) when I saw it on TV last night.”

So despite the fact that virtually no one at the Capitol other than law enforcement was armed on Wednesday, as the Brady tweet above makes clear, “we must immediately take enact (sic) to guard against further violent attacks — and gun safety underlies all of them.”

As you undoubtedly know, in the modern newspeak dictionary, “gun safety” means restrictions on civilian gun ownership and use. And the way Brady and their co-conspirators see it, anything that takes place anywhere in the US, is, at heart, a justification or excuse to further limit Second Amendment rights.

The anti-gun coven convenes at 5:00p Eastern, 4:00p central today and is open to everyone, TTAG readers included. How much fun would it be if most of the attendees were supporters of the right to keep and bear arms? You can attend via Facebook Live here.

      Riddle me this…

      A few (nincompoop Trumpers and suspected Antifa moles) caused damage and trespassed, and they should be prosecuted. But…

      1) They do not represent the vast majority of Patriots who were there that day.

      2) There is uploaded video showing Capitol Police removing barriers and waving people in toward the Capitol steps. The rally participants absolutely did not barge in. Security was extremely lax, considering we’re talking about the very location where our legislative body meets, and where pretty much everyone except POTUS himself was present. If a handful of mere protesters could easily enter, then doesn’t that suggest that any small group of bad actors (representing any of a number of countries who hate us) could have blasted their way in and taken out Reps and Senators? This smells to high Heaven.

      3) Interesting that the Left is quick to incorrectly label this as an insurrection, while they downplayed the actual destruction of entire BLOCKS of businesses last summer as “mostly peaceful protesting”.

      Gimme a break.

      Oh, wait…(cough cough)… “C’mon, man!”

    They’re all acting like I did when I was a kid and my dad bought me a new model airplane.
    Id be in the back of the car all giddy secretly opening the box while my father was telling me if I open it I’m gonna lose a part.
    “What does he know?” I though. “Ill be careful” I thought.
    Sure enough, three days later and there’s parts missing.

    They’ll see.

    One of Creepy Joe and his minions first goals will be ‘Gun Safety’. Their thought process, even if they lie to themselves about it, is if this bunch of rabble can enter the Capitol building and take selfies, just imagine what a truly angry armed mob will do.

    The Brady campaign is just riding on Joe’s coattails to get donations ect Useless individuals who live in a safety bubble that they are.

    I find it exceedingly funny how the MSM, politicians, and idiot celebrities’ try to one up each other.
    “It is a mob, it was sedition, it was insurrection, it was like a war zone!, Trump supporters are literally Hitler!, Trump tries to overthrow the Gov’t!! OMG! We’re all gonna Die!”

    It’s as if media people never left high school. Speaking of which, I’ve seen worse fights and mobs at our typical Friday Night football games than what I saw during the Joint Session.

    Except for the Lady who was shot by the Secret Service police or Capitol police. Whomever did that, probably in a mindless panic, needs to be prosecuted and their head on a pike to serve as an example as to what happens to sissy snowflakes who shoot without justification.

    “Storming the Capitol!!” Pretty sure that phrase does not describe what happened. Also pretty sure things are going to ramp up.

    1. avatar GS650G says:

      This was nothing. It’s going to intensify especially in locked down states.

    2. avatar LifeSavor says:

      Manse,

      You are correct. No body stormed the Capitol. I was there. Took video. Protestors ran up the steps. They did not attack the police.

      This was civil disobedience as called for by Martin Luther King.

      I was proud of how well behaved our crowd was.

      1. avatar Manse Jolly says:

        As big as that crowd was they could have “stormed” the city with a little guidance. It looked pretty cold up there as well, brr! I’m freezing at anything below 55deg.

        The ‘Never Trumpers’ and MSM see those people at the rally as beneath them. What they fail to comprehend is that President Trump, very rich, is not a snob or an elitist. That’s where the ‘Not Presidential’ comes from and the hate/loathing.

        It’s been said that Trump supporters are cultists when the exact opposite is more true. President Trump spoke as one of the 70+ Million from day 1 in that he agrees and follows with our way of seeing the Republic. When the elites say they hate President Trump they are saying they hate us.

        Going forward and for what’s worth, all the hidden RINOS and invertebrates have been identified, some we knew and others showed their colors.

        1. avatar LifeSavor says:

          Manse,

          Truth!!!

          And, yes, it was cold with a stiff, damp wind. The womenfolk in our posse did not fully thaw out until early the next morning.

        2. avatar Montana Actual says:

          They should have watched “The Last Castle” and played capture the flag a little better. Seeing the capital flag flown upside down would have done this country some good.

  6. avatar DJ says:

    At this point no one is going to voluntarily surrender guns.

    If Trump supporters were really the problem all you would be gearing is gunfire.

  7. avatar GS650G says:

    It’s not even a negotiation any longer.

    They plan to impose their will on people who still believe in their rights.

    And they think it will be like other countries where everyone just rolls over and all that.

    Now miner and the other clowns can chime in.

  8. avatar Dude says:

    It goes much deeper than just “gun rights.”

    Pardon Assange & Snowden
    Continue exposing the corrupt government

    1. avatar COtt says:

      That’s been my hope for quite some time. Snowden exposed it all. Assange put it out there for us. Obama was supposed to undo the security state but doubled down when he got into office. But just watch, because of these events, the D’s are going to go all in on a new, beefed up patriot act on steroids that will explicitly target citizens of “wrong think”.

      And then you have media outlets showing up to these events and fanning the flames of division and they love every minute of it. 2012 was when the media started to lose their credibility IMHO.

      And then you have the final nail for that trifecta in the tech industry that has happily banned “wrong think” and think that it’s ok to silence those they disgree with. Even if it’s a sitting president. Nope, everything is find. Move along…

      Honestly, i feel like I’m in an episode of the Twilight Zone, caught in the middle of this weird mix of 1984, Animal Farm and a Brave New World and I don’t like it one bit. The worst part is, i have a sinking feeling this will only get worse from this point on.

  13. avatar Mark N. says:

    I’m still trying to figure out what happened to the cop who died. A spoke to a friend this morning who claims he was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher, but none of the stories I have seen say anything other than that he collapsed when he returned to his precinct. The press is equally opaque as to what happened to the three people who “died of medical issues/complications” during the “event. I understand at least one was trampled, but that leaves two others unaccounted for.

    I also question whether this event can properly be called an “insurrection.” Insurrection is typically used as a synonym for rebellion, or armed resistance to governmental authority. I don’t think that any of these people were there to overthrow the government by force; it was not an attempted coup.Is it sufficient to constitute “insurrection” merely to disrupt a constitutional proceeding? If so, why were the protests at the Kavanaugh hearings not called insurrection?Or the attempts to burn down courthouses in Washington and Oregon? Why is it insurrection as opposed to a constitutionally protected protest that got out of hand? (I know that the press and pols are using charged speech intentionally, so I am asking a more technical question: are these guys talking through their hats?

    1. avatar JOHN THAYER says:

      It was the “Camp-Out at the Capitol”.

    2. avatar LifeSavor says:

      Correct. No insurrection. I was there. Got some of it on video. Civil disobedience. Except for the Antifa infiltrators.

    3. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

      “I also question whether this event can properly be called an “insurrection.” ”

      If they are charged in DC, it’s an easy win for them. DC is 95 percent leftist.

      That guarantees a Leftist-biased jury to convict them…

    4. avatar Seentoomuch says:

      There are many rumors out there that the protesters who entered the Capitol were infiltrated by Special Forces units and they were there to steal the laptops of Nancy Pelosi and many other congressmen. These laptops contain damning information that will expose the corruption that rises to the level of treason. There will be arrests made while Martial Law is Declared. This treason may have been a collusion with the Chinese Communist Party. Anyway, that’s what my sources are telling me.

    I’m still waiting on how exactly enforcement and confiscation of arms around the country is going to be implemented.

    And their plans for the inevitable nationwide non-compliance.

      Seizure of assets. They won’t have to take them, they will take everything else from you until you beg them to take the items they wanted originally. Or, like thieves in the night. “Violent Montana man with intentions of terrorizing the capital arrested last night. Armory found”.

    What happened at the Capitol was a gift to the democrats. They won’t pass a law that says turn them in. But they can certainly make it hard for manufacturers to sell and us (law abiding) to buy.

      “But they can certainly make it hard for manufacturers to sell…”

      How? The ‘Protection in lawful commerce act’ protects gun makers, unless the next administration overturns that law…

    I was there, in DC. Took video when a very small portion of the crowd ran up the Capitol steps in the front of the building. More video of when, an hour later, a very small portion of the crowd ran up the back steps of the Capitol. This was no riot. The mainstream media is deploying their usual strategy of lies and distortions.

    There were easily two million of us. Comparitively, the number that entered the Capitol was tiny. Some civil disobedience. Minor property damage and some of that has already been shown to have been caused by Antifa infiltrators. NOTHING like the BLM and Antifa riots.

    I saw Trump supporters yelling “Back the blue” to the Capitol police.

    My friends an I were standing and speaking with the Air Force veteran who was shot and killed by police. She was truly a patriot.

    Just before the curfew was announced, I rounded up my posse of 6. We walked to our cars amid so many speeding police vehicles with blaring sirens, that it seemed like the end of the Blues Brothers movie.

    I guess the overwhelming police response was because there were so many of us. But really, this remained a peaceful protest, except for a small group of Antifa infiltrators.

    1. avatar possum says:

      “I was there” . Thank you Lifesaver👍 ,,, what a tragedy the AirForce veteran was killed, she died in her beliefs and that is true heroism. Rest in peace Sister

    2. avatar Ing says:

      Sounds about right. A hundred hotheads out of 2 million people, and it’s the biggest, most evilest riot ever.

      Thousands of other people burn and loot hundreds of businesses in a couple dozen cities, turn Portland and Seattle into anarchic warzones, kill a couple dozen people scattered across the US, and it’s fiery but mostly peaceful, and so beautiful, and why are you racists complaining about it.

      The whole BLM thing is just more social-justice corruption piled on top of the usual corruption. Money changes hands, power brokers make deals in back rooms, and the idiots filling the streets think they’re changing the world. Politicians can work happily with that.

      What happened in DC this week…that was the raw power of unbridled democracy surging like a storm against what the corruptocracy consider *their* seat of power, reminding them that even if they can manufacture election results, they still only occupy it while the people choose to let them.

      This scared them in a way the corrupt Marxist BLM “movement” never could. It’s very worrisome. This is a dangerous time. They’re lashing out in fear now, and they have real power.

    Brady you are one stupid s.o.b. each one of you who thinks trump done anything wrong, needs to look in the mirror, even if he did integrate a little, it’s far less then you all are guilty of, for the last 4 years is lie, cheat ,steal,to have trump removed from office, well you all finely found a way, with the help of the lying wicked media, falsify votes, threaten those who didn’t see it the way you all did, the truth is you all know if he was reelected trump would have this nation back to the greatest country, back under the watchful eyes of GOD, but you all weren’t going to let that happen, that would mean you all would have to give up greediness, cheating, lying, stealing, homeos, Blm,party’s, criminal affairs that put the best president America has had in over 30 years out of office, believe me you are very stupid.

    The only gun violence at the protest was committed by a government agent. Do they want to take his gun away? I’m okay with that. First priority for distribution of arms should always be private citizens, because it’s *their* country.

    So, for those Americans who only have video to watch to try to understand what happened at the Capitol “Riot”- what are we seeing?

    There seems to be a disconnect between the video footage and what is being reported by individuals “who were there”.

    It is understandable that each “side” wants to describe events in such a way as to make their actions seem more creditable- but the video footage is pretty deleterious to the “protestors” side. How is this so? CGI? It just doesn’t jibe.

    Asking a serious question.

    Prefer serious, objective, credible answers.

    1. avatar Ing says:

      If it’s eyewitness, I think it depends on what part of “there” they were in. The action was a very tiny minority up against the building. Thousands of other people didn’t do anything but stand with likeminded folks and wave flags, and had no way to know what was happening a couple hundred yards away.

    The only guns in that scenario were wielded by government troops who shot an unarmed woman — but sure, “controlling” the guns that citizens were already forbidden to carry on public ground and didn’t have in that kerfuffle (as riots go, it was pretty damn tame) will help. If your objective is stomping even harder on innocent people, that is.
