From the CCRKBA

Gun owners in several states where Democrats control the legislative process are facing an onslaught of gun control and prohibition legislation and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today condemned what appears to be the party’s war on freedom in state capitols across the country.

“We are witnessing a full frontal assault on Second Amendment rights, not only in Washington, D.C. with Joe Biden leading the charge,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “but in state legislatures in California, Connecticut, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Illinois, Washington and elsewhere Democrat majorities have gained control. Equally alarming is the support their extremist gun control agenda is getting from a small but vocal minority of gun prohibitionists who are determined to destroy the Second Amendment.

“These anti-gun zealots have forgotten that you can’t give away your neighbor’s freedom and expect to keep your own,” he observed.

In California, the threat has spread to the First Amendment, as the state has enacted a statute clearly designed to prevent, or at least discourage, legal challenges to gun control laws. This statute is now being challenged in federal court on First Amendment grounds. In other states, Democrats want people to jump through bureaucratic hoops, such as expensive training mandates or obtaining purchase permits from the police that amount to prior restraint, and require access to their medical records before they can purchase a gun, which raises Fourth Amendment issues. In New York, getting a carry permit even requires disclosure of social media accounts.

“What is truly alarming is the holier-than-thou arrogance of Democrat politicians who think penalizing law-abiding citizens by restricting their rights will somehow prevent criminals or crazy people from committing mayhem,” Gottlieb said. “Sadly, the establishment media has obviously chosen sides in this fight, going so far as literally adopting the anti-gun vocabulary by describing gun control legislation as ‘gun reform’ or ‘gun safety’ measures. The media is unwittingly opening the door to regulation of their rights, as Democrats and the Biden administration have already shown a desire to control and manipulate the news narrative.”

“This isn’t about preventing crime or improving public safety, it’s about control,” he warned. “It’s not about guns, but about rights, not just the right to keep and bear arms, but the right to privacy and redress of grievances. Democrats want to diminish First and Second amendment rights so they can control the narrative and decide what people can own. For a party that calls itself ‘Democrat,’ this is about as far away from democracy as it gets.”

      • The question for A. Gottlieb is…Why haven’t you called out the democRat Party for wallowing around like pigs in an agenda History confirms is rooted in racism and genocide? Answer the question counselor.

        • Repeatedly actually…………may want to listen to a few Sunday editions of Armed American Radio it is a common theme and well blended into the conversation.

        • Skimming the surface of Gun Control once in a Blue Moon for the choir does not cut it anymore than Gottlieb’s failures to call democRats and their Gun Control rot out even after he just said in the article, “The 2A is under assault.”

          I’ve heard Gottlieb enough and when he should have Defined Gun Control according to its History for his audience and specifically Gun Control democRats he was just as silent as he is in this article.

          Instead of giving credit in an area where credit is not due use your connections to copy and paste my question and send it to Gottlieb and let him answer.

        • Ok then good luck with your presentation in any meaningful way outside of the courtroom where we are likely to see it in about 4 days.

        • Spare me the courtroom drama where you can bet your behind Gun Control will not be Defined by Its History of Rot. In fact the agenda of racists and nazis will be shown respect and given standing. Try that with Gun Control’s sidekicks Slavery, Lynching, Genocide, etc. I just presented as evidence to your court what is ongoing blatent, “Hypocisy.”

          Following Gottlieb’s toothless statement I asked him a pertenet question and that question deserves an answer directly from him…capice?

        • I mean if you don’t want the benefits of Bruin and the pending courtroom “drama” you are welcome to try living somewhere where they are needed and trying your screed and see how far that gets you so if anything spare me your preachy bullshit. Roots are there but your delivery is downright awful and goes over like a lead balloon. So again take a breath reassess and try to figure out how to make a coherent message that gets your point across without coming across like Dacian or whatever Vlad is calling himself lately.

    • The only hard resistance from the Democrats is when they drop their trousers and grab their ankles for their Chinese overlords.

  1. At some point and I think that the point might be here or just about. The idea of mass civil disobedience will the norm. You walk into Walmart and everyone will be carrying an AR15, permit or not. No permits, no serial numbers, no nothing. The left brought it on. We will have constitutional interstate carry by defacto because there is no point in obeying bad laws and all citizens should practice jury nullification as the legal standard to finally end this nightmare. At this point the democrats are tearing away wholesale at the entire constitution. There is nothing they won’t grab at in attempt to subjugate the people of this country. They’ll trash it all to grab at the guns.

    Interestingly, the press, who is supposed to be speaking truth to power is eerily silent when democrats raise the specter of pre civil war America as justification for their gun schemes. A light needs to be shining on the democrats 24/7 and every black person in this country should be able to read what the democrats are saying about them in open court to justify any kind of gun control.

    Clarence Thomas gave the entire human race a gift because now the gun grabbers have to justify their actions and all they have to fall back on is racism, xenophobia and other ‘hysteria based’ historical arguments as proof that they are right even though they admit openly that what they are saying is wrong.

    Malcolm X was right on the money when he said there is nothing more dangerous to a Black man than a white progressive liberal.

    • When the government seeks to take from we the people the most effective tools we have for resisting tyranny and oppression we have both a moral and constitutional obligation to resist.

    • After seeing how most everyone questioned nothing in 2020 and welcomed every bit of tyranny thrown at them, I think the chances of civil disobedience over anything in this country is zero.

        • Well on the covid front pretty much everyone that lost their job for refusing the experimental gene therapy had to be rehired with back pay except for one or two union groups whose lawsuits are still pending. We saw several massive protests throughout the pandemic that did lead to the governor cancelling various appearances and several additional emergency measures were also thwarted by legal action. To say there was no resistance is grossly ignorant or outright dismissive on how hard many citizens fought in every legal way they could before resorting to drastic measures (3 years of record setting gun sales in NY continuing even now with our new semi auto permit system). The quarantine camps have never made it past senate committee despite being a governor priority since Coumo in a democrat dominated legislature.

    • “You walk into Walmart and everyone will be carrying an AR15, permit or not. No permits, no serial numbers, no nothing. The left brought it on.”

      Damn straight. It was the Leftist Scum ™ that taught civil disobedience is a civil right and obligation when ignoring drug laws.

      What’s good for the goose, etc. 🙂

  2. That this is an orchestrated effort is fairly obvious – and that it has a definite smell of desperation is obvious as well. But what can the Left’s endgame be? Do the people pushing this initiative truly believe they can stuff the firearms freedom genii back in it’s bottle? Considering the number of states having constitutional/permitless carry and will-issue permit laws covering tens of millions of Americans along with the (rather extraordinary and heartening) statistic that Americans own over a 1/3 of the world’s civilian possessed firearms what is the Left trying to accomplish with this blitzkrieg of clearly un-Constitutional gun control measures?

    My opinion, if you’re curious, is that what they’re actually trying to do is manifold: one, they trying to slow the rate of new gun ownership (if the NSSF numbers are any indication that’s not working), two, it’s a typical political move to spur fundraising and support from their true-believers and finally they’re attempting to lay the groundwork for a long game push to overturn the recent 2A affirming SCOTUS decisions when if/when they succeed in swinging the court back to the Left.

    One consequence has been a definite shining of a light on what they see as the true Final Solution to undoing the Founding – suborning the Bill of Rights towards “protecting” collective rights rather than individual rights as it’s intended and confiscation of whatever property they deem harmful to the “greater good” – guns, “excessive” wealth, private property…

    It’s not complete hyperbole to think we’re in an existential fight for what’s left of our Republic. If that turns out to be true folks are about to get a refresher course in the history of mankind – few people make war at the total and destructive levels that classical liberal societies do. Heaven help us I hope that’s not what we or our immediate successors face.

    • National divorce lite, they get their empire of subjects while maintaining tax and trade with the free US?

    • If they are constantly bringing this almost non-issue to the forefront, what are the trying to distract us from?

      More SVB style financial collapses?

      • Majority of banks could not survive a mild bank run hence the panicked reassurances that the banks are solvent. So yeah possible but hopefully not the reason as that would just be lame.

    • But what can the Left’s endgame be?

      If this is still a question for you then you’ve failed to pay attention for ~70 years. Kudos for waking up that there’s an existential problem but you’re gonna need to play some serious catchup to deal with.

      Your Republic is already dead and has been for some time. That’s not really up for debate unless you’re going to make a bunch of assumptions that fly in the face of objective reality.

      But, it can be reborn. The question is if enough people have enough balls to actually make that happen.

      What does the Left want? I’d suggest that the Right stop, immediately, acting like Neville Chamberlain and start considering the idea that the your enemy has told you their intentions and you simply don’t want to believe them because their thought process is not one you can really understand on a normal level.

      Read what these people and the philosophers they laud have written. They’ve been telling you their goal and the plans to get there for over a century.

      It is not an overstatement to say this, it’s repeating their own work in modern parlance:

      What they want is nothing short of the complete and total destruction of the Western world down to the point that 5000 years of philosophical advancements can be extinguished. Theirs is a post-modern deconstructionist philosophy mixed with Marxism to produce a school of thought that insists that what exists must be destroyed so that utopia can be built. Their goal is nothing short of this.

      In furtherance of this goal they employ an army of liars and fools who will both call this crazy talk. Yet it is the pervasive theme in all of their own writings for over a century.

      It’s not a goddamn accident that Marx himself had a favorite quote from Faust in which Mephistopheles (The Devil) says:

      “I am the spirit that negates. And rightly so, for all that comes to be Deserves to perish wretchedly; ‘Twere better nothing would begin. Thus everything that that your terms, sin, Destruction, evil represent— That is my proper element.”

      A number of Marx’s contemporaries noted that he was prone to literally chant “Everything that exists deserves to perish” repetitively.

      Sun Tzu said this: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

      The Right has spent a century knowing neither itself nor its enemy. The time approaches when they will either wise the fuck up or succumb.

      • I wonder sometimes if the power seekers use the idea of the antichrist and revelation for inspiration and for the manipulation of the faithful or if scripture just called the path of things to come.

        • If you actually look at the contemporary history of the area in which the things that will become the Bible were written you come to the same conclusion as the faithful. Such a person may or may not disagree with the faithful about the inspiration for Revelation but the conclusion they reach is nearly identical.

          Which is to say, it’s both to some degree.

          Personally, I’d lean more towards the former at this point in time but over a longer time scale, it’s generally going to tend towards the latter because human nature doesn’t change over the time scale under discussion. (Which is not to say that the Bible is some sort of long con or anything, merely to note that it contains many examples of astute observation of repetitive human behavior.)

          In that vein I would point you towards the US government’s definition of “malinformation” (see link) and the campaign trying to combat it, which definitely involves what might be termed “psyops”, which would necessarily target the faithful and attempt to make use of their overall belief structure as well as exploit the individual components of that belief structure.

        • I was really hoping you wouldn’t have had a similar thought. I hate the antichrist creeps closer.

        • You spend a couple decades studying these people closely, in writing and in person, and you’re going to come to some obvious conclusions.

          You’re also going to take an unbelievable amount of shit from the very people you’re trying to save.

          Both come with the territory.

  3. Don’t be fooled. Call them what they are: communists. They want us in the gulag or dead, and disarming us is a step in that direction.

    • Pretty much, John Birch Society has a good overview of the money/organizations involved with communism as well as the corporate entities that work towards similar goals in the west but in the end servitude and subjugation is the goal.

      • SRA MN said as much directly in a recent tweet.

        What’s disheartening is seeing a whole gaggle of 2(A) supporters throwing the towel in with them saying arming our self proclaimed enemies is a good thing.

        The cognitive dissonance is real, and widespread.

        • Not going to lie I don’t bother paying attention to SRA/redneck rebellion/John Brown (may be a mixup on your post as John Birch is a Constitutionalist group) or other related lefty “gun organizations” as they really don’t exist over here. Libertarians are easier to find and even that is laughably few in number

        • re: I know John Birch Society, & where they stand. The comment was directed on the communista focus of subjugation, disarmament, and enslavement. I keep a close tab world wide, but especially domestically on what those who would see us murdered do, say, advocate, and wish upon us. Keeps me on my toes, the fire in my belly hot, and the head coolly assessing.

          Know thine enemy, this the maxim I live by.

          Libertarians, don’t cotton to them being a classical (small l)ibertarian personally, whose entire focus is defending what my namesake died for. By any means necessary.

        • Disregard part of previous then, antifa was far more relevant for presence than multiple groups combined until fairly recently. Now it’s going to be interesting to see which puppet group is used to exert pressure on governor and legislature as they are at odds (left vs far left) and budgets are getting tighter.

  4. quote—————“What is truly alarming is the holier-than-thou arrogance of Democrat politicians who think penalizing law-abiding citizens by restricting their rights will somehow prevent criminals or crazy people from committing mayhem,” Gottlieb said———–quote

    Gottlieb is a crazed right wing moron. All civilized countries require a permit to purchase a gun which is given only after a full background check for any criminal record and also access to social media and medical records makes perfect sense to weed out crazed right wing Trumpite revolutionaries, racists, and nut cases. HOW ELSE WOULD YOU KEEP GUNS OUT OF THE HANDS OF THESE CRIMINALS AND NUT CASES.

    • “HOW ELSE WOULD YOU KEEP GUNS OUT OF THE HANDS OF THESE CRIMINALS AND NUT CASES.”

      Projecting once again from the loony bin. Don’t worry, pushing as hard as you useful idiots have been, it won’t be too long now.

    • dacian, the DUNDERHEAD, Actually you are describing yourself. Seems you don’t think the Germany is a civilized country? How about France? Both of them have had “mass shootings”. The problem with keeping guns out of the hands of criminals is you Lefties letting the criminals out of prison and jail before the]ir time is up.

  5. It’s all just a trade. The democrats will give you lots of “free stuff.” In exchange you give up your guns.

    • *free stuff only available to those not gainfully employed. Offer void in locations where American flags outnumber recipients, see local DNC representative for details

    • to Chris the naive

      But its ok then to give millions to corporations in the form of subsidies WHICH IS FREE MONEY (your tax dollars)>

  6. Weird how gun controllers never look like a group of healthy, fit people.

    Instead there’s a very strong correlation with them being fat and looking like they haven’t seen a vitamin, vegetable, decent cut of meat or the sun in a decade.

    A distinctly unhealthy, upper middle class, eats too much McDs aura about them.

    Which is ironic to some degree since they argue that gun owners are pansies who should just learn to fight. Yet, in my life, I’ve never met a martial artist truly against guns nor have a ever met an anti who could win a fistfight against a toddler.

  7. Their hissy fit is going to backfire on them. The new “assault weapons” bans and 21 age limit for all guns is going to nuke age limits over 18 for handguns, mag bans, other gun bans, etc. Since they’re new laws, it’s easier to get emergency orders and fast-tracked decisions.
