Democrats Gearing Up for an Unprecedented Attack on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Charles Chuck Schumer New York Senator

People, for example, can be sure that a Democrat majority partnered with a Biden presidency will clear a path for gun control — gun bans, a ban on private firearm transfers, magazine capacity limits, and potentially even a firearm confiscation initiative.

While it is no secret that Schumer and his colleagues on the Left have been avid proponents of gun control, the New Yorker’s recent story about Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s declining health also conveniently exposed the degree to which the gun control lobby has already embedded itself among Senate Democrats.

In the story, reporter Jane Mayer’s anonymous sources recall that Minority Leader Schumer was concerned enough about Feinstein’s mental acuity and her ability to manage Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearing that he “embedded” a trusted staffer into the Senate Judiciary Committee to “make sure the hearings didn’t go off the rails.” The staffer he chose for this task was Max Young, unsurprisingly a former Schumer staffer, but shockingly the current chief public affairs officer for gun control groups Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.

    Well, of course they will. And let’s not forget, they’ll launch other attacks against freedom of speech, thought, assembly, religion, et cetera.

    It’s what they do.

    This is about guns … but it’s not only about guns.

    The 5th Columnists no longer talk about common sense gun laws or enhanced background checks for every purchaser. WHY?

    Enhanced background checks means you are inherently trustworthy. The 2A community can successfully make the argument that if we pass your checks, we should be able to buy anything. Right? Afterall, we have been verified through the most rigorous standards that we are “The Trusted.”

    The 5th Columnists are not about trust or freedom. As such, the conversation has moved to outright confiscation and removal of all our rights including the 1st amendment (no worship, no speech, no free assembly).

    I would not be surprised if the 3rd amendment is the next to fall with mandatory monitoring and tracking devices in every home.

    I know, it sounds like a tinfoil hat conspiracy, but in the words of the great philosopher George W. Bush, “”Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”

      It’s not a conspiracy theory at all. The left wants to come for every single right in the BOR. They’re not even secret about it anymore.

        They aren’t too smart, these Democrats. Every red blooded American in this country owns multiple fire arms. Those Dems might find themselves in big trouble even trying to mess with them. People are already mad and ready to be sure not to let a bunch of Socialists and Marxist Facists take over our country. Dems could find themselves having a Tiger by the Tail they can’t let go of.

        1. avatar Jamers says:

          While most current law enforcement would probably decline to enforce any unconstitutional gun laws, the left will probably recruit young leftist activists to do it instead, just like Hitler and the Nazis did with the Brown Shorts. I’m sure ANTIFA and BLM would line up for such jobs. So when they come for our guns we must make certain that we give them the bullets first. I wouldn’t lose a single night’s sleep over sending an ANTIFA member to meet his maker early.

    2. avatar Prndll says:

      No one in government needs to do much of anything for this. The general population has already shown a strong desire for it on their own.

      1. avatar Vincent says:

        Most of the polls run in recent months show any kind of gun control pretty far down on the list of what people are concerned about. And don’t forget the sheer numbers of first time gun buyers in the last couple years.
        Most of the anti gun noise has come from the same small, vocal and well funded groups that have been trying for decades to disarm the general populace. With the same misguided idea that the guns, and not the criminals are the problem. Deal with the criminals and deal with education and the gun problem sorts itself out. Of course it is much easier to blame the hardware and confiscate the guns, than it is to admit the leftists very social programs have been the major causes of the gun crimes.

        1. avatar Joe Wilson says:

          Why is there so much false news about dems and taking away guns? It’s just idiotic. I think they just want to control the criminals and psychos who shouldn’t have guns.THAT would make America great- and safer! That is NOT taking away guns or free speech!

      People must never tip their hand, but if it shows up in a neighborhood near you quietly disappear, regroup and exercise your battle plan. You will need a plan to survive. Search out to find veterans because they have the ability to help you stay alive.

        Seriously, we’ve got lots still to do and, as yet, no action has been taken by the Bitem’ admin. Only threats and I’m still hoping wiser heads will prevail. We need to not hide should any laws or executive actions be taken, including (or perhaps especially) any action on ammo. A 10 million person march on DC would be the next step. All armed but no shots fired unless fired upon. Make them either listen and change or they will have to start shooting.

        Logistically this is difficult but not impossible. Roughly 500k persons/day converging from multiple directions in an almost endless parade past the White House and capitol rotunda. and out the other side VA to MD for example that shuts down the city for days. Shuttles to take people back to their vehicles, etc.

        It can & should be done if the Hairytoe/Bitem’ admin starts something.

          Nope, I haven’t forgotten Maxx. I’m just sayin’ I don’t think they’ll kick the bear just yet and if they do what we should do next. Give them 2 options, kill us or repeal the laws – all laws, including the NFA & GCA. Force their hand right in DC and do it en masse. Let them be the ones to decide whether we can peaceably resolve this or the proverbial tree must be watered. We’re the good guys here and we need to start acting like it.

I’ll continue to use and shoot my AR pistols without change, along with all my other firearms with standard capacity firearms.

      If LEOs continue to enforce unjust laws, (often now only against only those deemed enemies of the narrative), then I hope they can live with themselves. They will lose any semblance of support or sympathy I still have for them against the leftists that are tearing us apart.

          Need to be a little nice about Waco, please. Local LE (Waco and state) refused to have anything to do with the fed crazies. And the commanding general of Ft Hood refused their demand for tanks, until overruled by DC. Even then, he refused the demand for 1) Army crews for the tanks, and 2) GET THIS IT IS NOT A JOKE live ammo for both the coax .50 cal and the main gun, an antitank cannon. If Washington overruled that (wouldn’t surprise me) he told them to fuck off, because they got no ammo, tanks on flatbeds without Army personnel anywhere to be found. A lot actually went right with Waco, all the more reason that around 100 people should still be in prison, today, only around half of them FBI, the rest senior military at the Pentagon/Joint Chiefs level. That shit did not simply pass under the radar without anyone noticing, an entire city police force and the commanding 3-star general of one of the largest Army posts in the world stood up and screamed BULLSHIT. It was a golden opportunity to put that shit to rest forever, but the assholes were too powerful.

        3. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          I am aware of the local LEs relationship w/Branch Davidians, called them respectful, clean, quiet, well mannered, very likable… My reference was to the ATF who lied to the Army to use their facilities for training and descended on the compound looking for a fight even though they could have taken Koresh quietly in town when ever they wanted and the FBI cunts that took over ready to kill everyone in the house… They all lied even when confronted with witnesses AND video… They lied to the local cops, they lied to the press AND they lied to the Senate committee including Chucky and The Creepy One who didn’t WANT to hear the truth so ATF and the FBI could spin it any way they wanted because they had homefield advantage and a user friendly crowd…. Was Koresh a Creep? probably, but age of consent in Tx was 14 and the parent(s) was/were there to give consent… Were they converting guns auto fire? yeah why not, who hasn’t? Did they find the grenades Koresh was supposedly selling? No.. So basically all they had was illegal possession of an automatic weapon, hardly reason to kill women and children… Same with Ruby Ridge all that death and destruction over a fucking sawed off Shotgun? Those agencies took on a bunch of Mercenaries and called them a team with one mindset and one goal….

          “age of consent in Tx was 14 and the parent(s) was/were there to give consent… “

          So the parents were there to give consent when they were under 14?

          Seriously, in Texas a parent can give consent for an adult male to have sex with her daughter even if she’s under 14?

          Wow, somebody let Q&Anon know that we found the pedophiles!

        They call themselves, OATHKEEPERS, for a reason. They were attacked in the past for calling themselves Oathkeepers. Just go back and look at all the negative comments on TTAG.

        There are oathkeepers and oath breakers. I call the bad ones oath breakers. The problem is the Libertarians, Liberals, and the Left, don’t see a difference between the two. They think all cops are bad.

        But the three L’s still don’t support you, the property owner, shooting looters. And they don’t support the owner, contracting with guards, to shoot looters. Nor do they support volunteers like kyle Rittenhouse shooting looters.

    In other news, the Republican Trump administration continues its attack on the American people:

    “Trump administration political appointees tried to block or change more than a dozen government reports that detailed scientific findings about the spread of the coronavirus, a House panel investigating the alleged interference said Monday.

    Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., said his coronavirus subcommittee investigators have found evidence of a “political pressure campaign” to “bully” professionals at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in what may have been an attempt to “cripple the nation’s coronavirus response in a misguided effort to achieve herd immunity.”

        “the POTUS decision to stop people from foreign countries entering the USA and spreading the virus.“

        Fake news. Trump only banned Chinese nationals from entering the US, allowing 40,000 returning Americans and other foreign nationals entry into America from China during the first months of the pandemic.

        You do know, there are factual records of actual events available to the public.

          Don’t be ridiculous, seven day quarantine with daily temperature checks before they’re allowed on the flight.

          We are Covid testing everyone who comes from the UK now, it’s not so difficult.

          And all 40,000 were not American citizens, Many were UK nationals, Korean, Indonesian, Australian, etc.

          And yes, I would inconvenience several thousand American travelers for a week or two if I could prevent 300,000 dead Americans, wouldn’t you?

          Oh I’m sorry, you wealthy elites will accept no inconveniencing, even if it means the deaths of hundreds of thousands, got it.

          I’m not an epidemiologist, and I’m not the president, we hire specialists who know what they’re doing and we should take their advice.

          Unfortunately, Donald Trump will not listen to anyone, especially if he doesn’t understand the big words they use.

          Trump lied to the American people repeatedly about the dangers of the virus, and did not offer clear, medically valid, information about the dangers of Covid. The tapes recorded by Bob Woodward show he knew exactly what the dangers were, was familiar with the airborne transmission, like he said “this thing is deadly!”

          But out of concern for his public image, he misrepresented the dangers and no one took it seriously. The rot starts at the top.

          Here’s a few of his statements that should be introduced as evidence in his voluntary manslaughter trial:

          February 26th: “And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”
          February 27th: “It’s going to disappear. One day — it’s like a miracle — it will disappear.”
          March 4th: “It’s very mild.”
          March 6th: “Anybody that wants a test can get a test.”
          March 7th: “I’m not concerned at all.”
          March 10th: “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”
          March 13th: “I don’t take responsibility at all…”
          March 16th: “We have a problem that a month ago nobody knew anything about.”
          March 17th: “I felt it was a pandemic long before it was declared a pandemic. All you had to do was look at other countries.”
          March 18th: “It snuck up on us.”

Your betters just want to see how their followers will bark like trained seals after they impose evermore onerous and ridiculous restrictions. You know what Newson was talking about when he was living it up at the French Laundry? He was talking about how stupid people like you are and laughing at you.

          Trump intentionally mislead the American people about the dangers of COVID-19, and discouraged mask use even though he knew it was primarily transmitted through airborne particles.

          “And the Vaccine? Even Slo Joe acknowledged that Trump got it done.”

          Are you unaware that the vaccine from Pfizer was not a product of ‘warp speed’ and the American government invested no money in its development or production?

      One could take the perspective that since humans are killing this planet the most “Green” solution would be fewer humans. Fewer humans would mean less power consumption, fewer cars, less fossil fuel fuel use, a reduced carbon footprint, less meat consumption, less methane emissions, and so on, and so on.

      It could be argued that COVID-19 is actually nature’s way of righting the imbalance that is the result of there being too many humans here on Earth. She’s just defending herself, after all.

      Now, if the “Green” solution is less humans- why are we shutting everything down? Mandatory lock-downs, mask mandates, restrictions of civil liberties, economic shutdowns, etc. only slow the spread of COVID-19, right? How does that make sense? Aren’t we supposed to want more infections? More infections means fewer humans. And fewer humans means a greener planet.

      We’ve got to act NOW to ensure the future of our planet! Open everything immediately and let nature do what nature does best- finding a balance. It’s really the only rational solution, right? Anything less would be… inhuman.

          Natural processes are just that- processes that occur naturally. They’re why life exists. We are only having this conversation because of an extremely precariously balanced natural process that is, has always been, and will always be exponential magnitudes above and beyond the sovereignty of humans.

          What ever makes you think even for a minute this virus is natural? Nothing could be farther from the truth. This is an engineered virus that targets the elderly and unhealthy. It isn’t about cleansing it’s about the money. Think social security (and worldwide equivalents), pensions, insurance companies, etc. Then think about the overall cost globally of supporting those 2 groups. You’re right about a purge but you’re wrong about by whom. Mother nature can be a bitch but she has nothing to do with this.

          Well, the trick is… if humans are clever (pathetic, vile, evil) enough to create a pandemic in order to achieve economic gains, then they certainly have earned the right to be “selected” for natural “control”.

          Anything created by Nature is naturally… natural. And Nature loves to even the playing field.

          Natural process.
          Nature finds a way.
          Going against Nature is part of Nature, too.

          If you don’t believe that the elite are exactly that, you’re not paying attention. But let’s not forget greedy in the description. I think avarice best describes the real reason. In retrospect I suppose, for some, avarice is quite natural.

          Southern-

          “Nature’s End” was a good read, but no- I’d support John Sinclair not Dr. Gupta Singh.

          One perspective would be that the role of “Government” is to provide the best available facts to the people, offer regularly updated recommendations, and then let free people decide how they are going to conduct themselves. Public property belongs to the public, private property belongs to individuals. Each has recourse under the law. Actions have consequences, and individuals must face the consequences of their actions. No one’s rights are more important than anyone else’s.

          No one should be forced to do/buy/wear something or have their movement restricted based on someone else’s fear. Citizens are not children, the government is not the parent.

          An appeal to fear as a mechanism of force is one of the biggest red flags there is.

      Miner49er,

      There is also a GIGANTIC cost — in both lives, livelihoods, and money — to going full lockdown/shutdown back in December of 2019 in a futile attempt to stop COVID-19 virus from reaching us and killing anyone.

      Telling the uneducated public at the outset about virus technical details (including rate of spread and mortality rate) would have sent the masses into a complete panic/meltdown and cost more lives and livelihoods than implementing careful and restrained measures to reduce the spread of the virus of the lost lives to the virus.

      Here is a simple parallel:
      There is an indoor sport stadium jam packed (standing room only) with 40,000 people and a certain amount of poison gas was somehow released into the stadium — enough poison gas to kill 400 people but no more. When the announcer at the stadium becomes aware, does he notify the crowd — knowing that the crowd will panic, stampede for the exits, and kill 4,000 people in the process? Or does the announcer keep it to himself, ask some of the crowd to exit for some mundane reason (which will NOT trigger a stampede), and limit the death toll to 400 (or less depending on how many people exited for the mundane reason before inhaling enough poison gas to be lethal)? The answer is obvious.

      There are legitimate reasons to withhold partial information from the masses when there is nothing to gain and a lot to lose from full-disclosure.

      1. avatar Miner49er says:

        Your stadium analogy is rather weak, the situation is much more complex than just a room full of humans.

        First, the only reason we needed lockdown/shutdowns is because Trump and his administration lied about the airborne transmission ability of Covid from the very beginning and discouraged the use of masks.

        Not only Trump, but right wing news media intentionally lied, “playing down the dangers of the virus” as Trump put it.

        Their claim was that Covid was no worse than the ordinary flu, but the facts prove otherwise.

        So far in 2020, we’ve experienced 15% excess deaths increase over 2019, approximately 400,000 Americans.

        Frankly I don’t expect you to believe or be convinced by my statements or factual citations on this list.

        I am confident the rising death toll will convince most Americans of the reality of COVID-19 and the threat it poses to our healthcare system and entire nation

          Really it is beyond arguing with idiots like Miner 49…. there is no convincing him, and he is not going to turn anyone here to his side. He has his side, and we have ours, and there is no discussion just rhetoric back and forth and there is no point, this is not a contest to sway votes. His side has been the aggressor for a generation and we have continued to move backwards, there will be eventually a breaking point. If 4 years of endless propaganda blitz against the president, and baseless persecution and ultimately a stolen election does not hit the breaking point then you might as well just turn your weapons in now. The ignorant and deluded Miner 49’s of this world are not going to win any debates,…but they don’t need to, the system is rigged and he has taken his position as a useful idiot. There is no political solution for us, they have control of the bureaucracy, the mainstream and social media, and the courts.

        3. avatar Miner49er says:

          The differences, you folks ignore the facts.

          You complain about copy and paste, because you have a natural aversion to verifiable facts with credible sources.

          Original thoughts? You folks don’t have any, you are regurgitating your right wing echo chamber talking points consistently, day after day.

          You listened to Fox News, with Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, etc. telling you that COVID-19 was a hoax and you believed their talking points and still do.

          The same goes for the election, even trumps lackey AG Barr has admitted no election fraud, furthermore, he says no need for an investigation of voting machines or Hunter Biden. Fox, Newsmax, etc. have aired complete retractions of their voting machine fraud claims, under fear of financial catastrophe from defamation lawsuits because they were lying on air to the public.

          I don’t need to create delusional ‘original thoughts’, I have historical fact on my side, copied and pasted from reliable sources.

          Here’s some now:

          “Final mortality data for this year will not be available for months. But preliminary numbers suggest that the United States is on track to see more than 3.2 million deaths this year, or at least 400,000 more than in 2019.

          U.S. deaths increase most years, so some annual rise in fatalities is expected. But the 2020 numbers amount to a jump of about 15%, and could go higher once all the deaths from this month are counted.“

          Go ahead and call me ignorant, it gives you something to post because you don’t have any facts from reliable sources with which to counter my position.

        4. avatar uncommon_sense says:

          Miner49er,

          I can believe the preliminary estimate that 400,000 people will have died in 2020 (in the U.S.), that it will be an increase of 15% over 2019, and that the increase is way beyond the year-over-year increase that we would normally expect. As with everything, we should exercise discernment and consider those numbers in the overall context of life.

          Perhaps the most important questions to ask about those numbers — how much of the excessive increase in 2020 deaths is directly the result of people:

          1) who became despondent because of the isolation and financial ruin which the shutdowns caused and committed suicide. (These people would not have committed suicide if governments had not implemented sweeping shutdowns.)

          2) who could not get preventive/routine healthcare (banned during shutdowns) and died of undiagnosed/untreated diseases/illnesses. (These people would have received normal healthcare and survived if governments had not banned all but emergency healthcare during the shutdowns.)

          And we also have to look forward. How many people will die several years earlier than they otherwise would have died because of government shutdowns? These early deaths would not have happened without shutdowns. (Shutdowns are directly responsible for financial ruin/hardship which will reduce healthy lifestyles and healthcare, thus directly shortening some people’s lives.)

          I could go on. As you said yourself, the situation is complex. That means we cannot simply blurt out that far fewer people would have died if Trump had not downplayed the virus. Such a simple view ignores basic human psychology.

        5. avatar Miner49er says:

          Senseless, I’m sure there were some additional deaths but the idea that waves of citizens became despondent because of government shut down is far-fetched.

          And as many on this list have pointed out, there are many medical malpractice deaths from routine procedures every year, the decline in accidental medical deaths would outweigh any gain in deaths from failure to obtain routine care.

          Fact is, routine care was not prohibited, only elective procedures. Anyone with a serious medical problem has been able to access the care they need, if they have insurance of course.

          The Covid deaths we see now will be a tiny fraction of the total, medical evidence is indicating that many people will have significant negative health impacts from their Covid illness, maybe as many as 70% of those who have survived Covid have permanent organ damage.

          Of course, if the Republicans succeed in taking away our pre-existing condition coverage, it won’t make any difference they can just die, right?

        6. avatar Miner49er says:

          “That means we cannot simply blurt out that far fewer people would have died if Trump had not downplayed the virus.“

          Are you serious? Is that not self evident to you?

          Trump lied about the dangers and severity of the virus, he discouraged mask use and ignored social distancing guidelines for his rallies.
          He ridiculed the epidemiologists and other medical experts, and discouraged people from following their guidelines.

          Tell me, the next time you or a loved one require surgery will you be advising the surgeons and assistants to not wear a mask because there’s really no need?

          It is now clear why Donald Trump loves the poorly educated, they are so easily manipulated for fun and profit.

        7. avatar uncommon_sense says:

          Miner49er,

          You are wrong regarding healthcare restrictions during COVID-19 lockdowns. In my state the governor forbid all healthcare except for dire emergencies such as a person keeling over with a heart attack or stroke. People who did not feel well (a common symptom of heart attack, diabetes, cancer, and various other life-threatening diseases) were not allowed to seek medical attention because it was forbidden. Many such people died the same day, the next day, or several days/weeks later from their undiagnosed and untreated root disease/illness that caused them to “not feel well” — people who would have survived had the lockdown literally not prevented them from seeking medical attention.

          Along the same lines, we could not go to the dentist unless there was a dental emergency/trauma — no routine cleanings nor screenings nor fittings for dental appliances. (That is significant because dental cleanings/screenings are the primary way that our healthcare industry identifies cancer in and around the mouth and jaw.) Similarly, people could not get mammograms, colonoscopies, or skin cancer screenings. I know this because all healthcare providers shut down and cancelled these procedures for either myself or immediate family members — for several months.

          And yes, I understand how serious the virus is: my father-in-law contracted the virus and his illness was so serious that the hospital did not expect him to survive. Fortunately, he just left the hospital and entered a rehabilitation center to recover from his 11 days on a ventilator and the previous 7 days of suffering the virus at home. It will likely be another two months before he recovers close to his pre-virus condition.

          That’s quite the claim, you’re going to need to cite a source or reference to underpin your assertion in order for it to have any weight in the discussion.

          Personally, I know of no patients turned away for an acute medical condition. No doubt, a ban on elective procedures was indeed in effect in many states but you can’t just claim that everyone was turned away from emergency care and expect anyone to believe that BS.

    Say when

    1. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

      Oh it’s coming, there will be a reckoning.

      1. avatar Miner49er says:

        There will be a reckoning, you say?

        Yes, we are in the midst of a deadly reckoning right now:

        “This is the deadliest year in U.S. history, with deaths expected to top 3 million for the first time — due mainly to the coronavirus pandemic.

        Final mortality data for this year will not be available for months. But preliminary numbers suggest that the United States is on track to see more than 3.2 million deaths this year, or at least 400,000 more than in 2019.

        U.S. deaths increase most years, so some annual rise in fatalities is expected. But the 2020 numbers amount to a jump of about 15%, and could go higher once all the deaths from this month are counted.

        That would mark the largest single-year percentage leap since 1918, when tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers died in World War I and hundreds of thousands of Americans died in a flu pandemic. Deaths rose 46% that year, compared with 1917.

        COVID-19 has killed more than 318,000 Americans and counting. Before it came along, there was reason to be hopeful about U.S. death trends.

        The nation’s overall mortality rate fell a bit in 2019, due to reductions in heart disease and cancer deaths. And life expectancy inched up — by several weeks — for the second straight year, according to death certificate data released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.“

        1. avatar It smells like something says:

          On the bright side the flu has been eradicated. No one has died from the flu since Corona virus. Or maybe the rona isn’t as bad as the media and politicians say since the chances of surviving it are 95% if you’re over 70, & 99.99% if you’re under 10. Can it be that the media and politicians are lying to us?

        3. avatar Miner49er says:

          That’s quite the claim, no seasonal flu deaths in 2020.

          What is your source for the statistic you cite?

          I have a citation from the CDC giving their estimate on October 6, 2020.

          “During the 2019-2020 influenza season, CDC estimates that influenza was associated with 38 million illnesses, 18 million medical visits, 405,000 hospitalizations, and 22,000 deaths.“

          Last flu season in 2018-2019, the death toll was approximately 38,000, it’s down significantly this year because of social distancing, smart people wearing masks and shut downs. But 22K is still a significant number of our family, friends and neighbors.

          And I agree, shut downs are not the best solution, and have all sorts of collateral costs including money and peoples lives.

          Unfortunately, stupid people listened to Dr. Trump, Professor Hannity and Researcher Limbaugh when they said this is just a hoax and you don’t need to wear a mask, don’t be afraid of Covid!

          Thus lockdowns and quarantines, but many just ignore the science and continue to infect their loved ones. Bye-bye boomers!

    Feinstein has dementia. Biden has dementia. Pelosi suffers from aphasia. Schumer is simply demented. Maxine Waters is nucking futs. Eric Swalwell was boinking a Chinese spy (have sex and an hour later you’re horny again). The Democrat party is truly an asylum, and Democrat voters are the inmates.

  22. avatar Ing says:

    Unprecedented? 1968 and 1934 would like a word with you.

    I’m actually more worried about all the other stuff the “progressive” Democrats are up to, like ruining faith in the entire electoral process and actively attacking the entire concept of equality before the law. Gun control is infuriating and worrisome, but it’s just one small part of the whole. They fully intend that nobody will ever get out from under their thumb again.

    When enuf tells us he didn’t vote for this make sure to tell him “Yes you did.”

    Read Thomas Woods’: “Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.” Then pass it on to your state members of congress and your friends and demand that they nullify every thing coming out of Biden’s Animal Farm (Orwell). States have the right by the Tenth Amendment and others to nullify and interpose on any Federal law that is unconstitutional making it null and void. Yes, we have final say whether we allow it into our state even over the USSC which is now a joke. The Framers saw this coming and gave us the “rightful remedy” to the evil Federal tyranny. Thank you Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Madison.

      Tenth Amendment is part of the Constitution, they don’t plan to pay any attention to the Constitution, try that shit and they’ll send in the Army to kill all state government. Or at least that’s what a bunch of our own crazies are telling us, when the hard core actually try some of this they will wake up one morning dead, and unable to figure out how.

    Texas needs to become a second amendment sanctuary state. If California and others can be a sanctuary for people not supposed to be here (ILLEGAL immigrants), then I think it’s safe for Texas and others to be a sanctuary for citizens and LEGAL immigrants.

  27. avatar LarryinTX says:

    How about a Constitution sanctuary state? I believe in the entire shitaree!

    All the democrats are doing is provoking a war here on American soil. The real American people will not give up their rights for freedom, NO matter what the anti-gunners want to put in law were it passs or not, America is a free country, not a grovnment controlled country. The true American people that love this nation will stand against any an all that jeopardizes the rights of this country’s freedom, that includes the right to carry and bare firearms, I believe the true American people have had enough of the anti gunners B.S.

    The same goes for the election, even trumps lackey AG Barr has admitted no election fraud …

    ++ FACT > Chances of Biden winning Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin ~independently after Trump’s early lead is less than one in a quadrillion: 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000.

    ++ FACT > Chances of him/Biden winning ~collectively[TAKING ALL FOUR STATES INTO ACCOUNT] is one in a quadrillion >>> to the 4th power.

    quadrillion >>> to the 4th power >>> to ONE = 1,000,000,000,000,000 X 1,000,000,000,000,000 X 1,000,000,000,000,000 X 1,000,000,000,000,000 to ONE / THIS IS THE STATISTICAL ODDS AGAINST BIDEN BEING THE LEGITIMATE WINNER .

    This was calculated by a statistics expert and was submitted as part of the TEXAS case that was submitted to the SCOTUS .

    BUT no election fraud ? / more than 50% of the population will NEVER believe the election was not a fraud

    ————————————————————–

    gun bans,

    ++ AR-15s, and many others on a long list

    a ban on private firearm transfers,

    ++ more guns will be stolen from homes and cars as a result/ & black market guns, many more will appear, will have reg numbers removed

    magazine capacity limits,

    ++ high cap mags that already exist will, many millions of them out there, will be worth 200% more and will hold a high value/price

    and potentially even a firearm confiscation initiative.

    ++ big tax probably levied first, on all guns on the ‘list’, then puny buy back thingy, then, naked GRAB, confiscation with no compensation

      Grim one, I hate to tell you but most of the DemonicRats know the election was stolen but will refuse to admit it. They genuinely believe it was done for our own good because “Orange man bad” and we just didn’t see it. They will kill us for the same reason – because they love us.

      You see, nothing to worry about, it will all work out in the end.

    The country is now lost to the rise of China and socialism/& fascist communists that stole the election. Zuckerberg kicked in 400,000,000 $ to help seal the election steal; Dems needed all of those extra vote drop boxes in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin. Facebook was happy to help.

    They are relentless. They will push, push, and push until backs are against the wall. Then………what will you reach for…what will… you…do? That’s the point that they want to get to, and we’ll get there because they are relentless and no one mounts the kind of resistance necessary to stop their relentlessness.

    Correct me should I be in error here, but as memory serves not ever Democrat is anti gun/anti gun rights, just as not every Republican is pro gun/pro gun rights.

    1. avatar anonymous4goodreason says:

      True but I don’t see a push by any Republican to ban any guns. In fact, I don’t see a push by any Republican to ban anything other than demonicRats. The demonicRats, on the other hand, seem to want to ban everything that scares them, they dislike, or disagree with.

    2. avatar MADDMAXX says:

      not ever Democrat is anti gun/anti gun rights,

      Maybe not but they’ll vote the way “Nasty” Nancy and “Cryin” Chuck tell them to.. All it takes is the threat of being “primaried” or the loss of financial support in their next election… THE prime requisites for running for the House or Senate (A) must be a convincing liar (you’ve got to believe the shit you’re selling)… (2) You have to PROVE to the leadership that you will be a team player if they help you get elected (AOC just got a refresher course on THAT one) and (3) Never commit to ANYTHING, the ability to parse words, qualify everything with “if, might, could, possibly, etc.” and NEVER let the media pin you down… Do that and you can spend the rest of your life raking in cash ($174,000 base salary plus committee bonuses and an average of 3.5 million for staff and office expenses), living large while working about 150 to 165 days a year (House was in “session” 147 and Senate 164 in 2019) and basking in the glory and the power of a US Senator or Congressman… Do it right and you can collect an 80% retirement at 62 if you serve at least 5 years, age 50 if you serve for 20 years and any age if you put in 25 years… That is of course in addition to SS benefits and any other retirement “benefits” you’ve managed to accrue while in office… There is GREAT financial incentive to go along… Creepy One and “Doctor” Jill managed to amass 9 million dollars worth of property on a Senators and a school teachers salaries?… Not bad work if you can stand it…

    At the rate things are going they won’t need any enhancements in gun control. The markets and the lockdowns already did that for them.

        As Chris Rock pointed out; gun control is superfluous if you have bullet control.

      Texas law permits individuals who have reached the age of majority (18) to get married without parental consent. However, those 14 and older may get married with the consent of their parents or legal guardians. In those instances, consent must be given WITHIN 30 days prior to applying for a marriage license. THIS INCLUDES COMON LAW MARRIAGES which was the Koresh arrangement.. stop talking shit you know nothing about, and take time to READ the law like I did.. MARRIAGE also includes LEGAL SEXUAL ACTIVITY.. Right wrong or otherwise it IS what it IS… AND to that OTHER idiot, NO ONE said anything about girls UNDER the age of 14…

    ~They have BIG plans about BULLETS. The americanprogress.org organization has the BIDEN plan for bullets all set to go. Most have no clue or idea about it. Too late to stop it now. What use are guns with no or very expensive ammo? You’ll be lucky to have a six shooter and six bullets.
