Second Amendment

Three Recent Reports On The 2nd Amendment Should Cause Us Worry

Chuck Yarling

Published

on

The attack on the 2nd Amendment continues without any pause whatsoever. For example, lets start with most recent examples of mass shootings: Sutherland Springs, Texas, on November 5th, and LasVegas on October 1. In both of these cases, as well as all of the others in the last several decades, the first words out of the mouths of liberals are “gun control”.

So, how does gun control fare in Chicago which has some of the most stringent gun laws in the country and a city that has the highest death rate due to gun violence in the country? In just 2017, 586 persons have been killed and 2786 wounded in that city. That averages out to 48 dying with 232 wounded each month of this year – so far. And in early December (1-3), 21 one people were shot with three of those who died.

Yep, gun control really works, doesn’t it!

Regardless, here are three recent reports of gun control that might cause us worry.

The first report occurred in 2012:

The plaintiff in the case, Dale Norman, was arrested in February, 2012, in Fort Pierce as he openly carried a gun in a holster. N

Norman challenged the constitutionality of the state’s longstanding ban on openly carrying weapons. But the state’s 4th District Court of Appeal and the Florida Supreme Court ruled against Norman, leading him to go to the U.S. Supreme Court.

On Monday, November 27, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case thereby leaving Norman’s conviction in place.

Now one could argue that this was a state issue regarding open carry, but this is still a blow against the 2nd Amendment.

The second report is even more egregious:

The Honolulu Police Department issued a directive that has decided that all medical marijuana users must “surrender your firearms.”

KITV, a local TV station, reported:

In a letter dated November 13th new Chief of police Susan Ballard states card-holders have 30 days to surrender weapons, permits, and ammunition to HPD or to transfer ownership. According to the letter, the only way card-holders can get their weapons back is to get clearance from their doctors.

Now think about this for a moment: the report states

Not only is this is a violation of the Fifth Amendment’s protections, but since when did cops get to make such a decision?

Damn, well-said and straight to the point!

Now the kicker is the third report:

Sixteen retired military leaders have drafted a letter to Congress urging them to take action to pass more gun control laws so as to address the national crisis of gun deaths and violence. They claim that by not passing needed gun control laws that Congress is no longer speaking for the majority of the American people, but many will argue that point.

Obviously those generals are out-of-touch with “we the people”, that is we deplorables.

The attacks on the 2nd Amendment will continue, but, hopefully, sane heads will continue to succeed in keeping them in check.

Backstabbing Authorities Just Began Confiscating Guns For Insane Reason – Met With All Out WAR

Published

on

The crackdown on gun control had come to a screeching halt once Donald Trump took office, but that didn’t stop Democrats from getting their way. Without warning, gun owners are now waking up to horrible news about their Second Amendment right which has just been incredibly infringed upon in a way that’s beyond unconstitutional.

To control people’s right to their own safety and property is at the top of liberals’ list of what’s most important to them to regain son semblance of power. As such, they find any and every loophole they can to usurp citizens’ rights that they don’t like. Sneaky liberals plotted against Republicans and surprised everyone with what they were able to pass through the night, forcing law-abiding Americans into confiscation or face jail time.

The old saying goes that “nothing good happens after midnight” and that’s certainly the case as people law-abiding gun owners in Hawaii are getting bad news about their guns that they are going to have to give up for the most asinine reason yet. The tyrannical leadership in this state has just officially made weapons confiscation a reality for those who legally and rightfully purchased their guns.

The Daily Caller reports:

Hawaiian authorities have asked medical marijuana users to “voluntarily surrender” firearms due to their medicinal status. This may mark the first time a law enforcement entity has moved to confiscate guns from cannabis patients.

Marijuana users in Honolulu are expected to turn over all firearms and ammunition to the state within 30 days of receiving the notice, according to a letter signed by police chief Susan Ballard, reported the website Leafly.

The state’s first medical marijuana dispensary opened in August, but federal law prevents patients who ingest cannabis from owning a firearm. Marijuana is still categorized as a Schedule I drug by the government and is considered in the same league as ecstasy and heroin.

Twenty-nine states and Washington, D.C., have passed laws to legalize cannabis for medical or recreational use, but the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) issued a letter in 2011 saying there will be no exceptions for weed users with regard to gun ownership. The agency stated:

Any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her State has passed legislation authorizing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, and is prohibited by Federal law from possessing firearms and ammunition. – ATF
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments in September 2016 against laws prohibiting medical marijuana patients from owning a gun, but unanimously ruled in favor of the government. The restrictions did not infringe upon patients’ second amendment rights because cannabis was found to cause”irrational or unpredictable behavior,” the panel said.

This new wave of unconstitutional control comes after the liberal state of Oregon created a different way to force legal gun owners to forfeit their weapons or face jail time.

Second Amendment watchdogs at 2A News, explains the bill and the government’s gross overreach.

On Wednesday, Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed into law a Democrat-sponsored gun confiscation bill, permitting Oregon judges to order guns to be confiscated under an “Extreme Risk Protection Order”, based on hearsay evidence, and before the gun owner is permitted a hearing to challenge the order.

The law is based on Oregon Senate Bill 719 and was passed by Oregon Democrats despite widespread condemnation by constitutional scholars and gun rights groups. All but 4 Democratic senators voted in favor of the bill, while every Republican senator but one voted against the bill.

The sole “token” Republican voting for the bill, Sen. Brian Boquist (R-Dallas, Oregon), claimed the law would “reduce veteran suicides”, and it was under that noble-sounding purpose that Democrat legislators steamrolled the bill through the legislative process.

Paul Phillips, President of Oregon Gun Owners, noted the hypocrisy and the underlying purpose of the bill. The bill, he says, will do little to prevent ‘suicides’

What it will actually do, under the guise of ‘suicide prevention’, is deprive Oregon gun owners of their legal rights under the second amendment. Gun confiscations, he says, will be “based on hearsay evidence alone, and the firearm owner is not [even] privy to a fair trial.”

This is liberals’ systematic and sneaky approach to total and complete gun control. If they take this right away step by step and piece by piece, as seems to be the case, it won’t be long before this right granted Americans in the Constitution is totally erased. Democrats will do absolutely everything they can to disarm Americans and won’t stop until they have made a sitting duck out of every citizen in this country.

Texan Goes On Live TV To Defend Gun Rights After Shooting, But His Shirt Causes A Massive Uproar

Published

on

On Sunday afternoon, Devin Kelley walked into a small Texas church and opened fire on the congregates, killing 26 and injuring 20 more. Of course, the “compassionate” left immediately jumped on this tragedy ready to vilify conservatives and the NRA as the real culprits in this cold-blooded massacre. Instead of the mainstream media and liberal politicians sticking to the facts of this case, they chose to bypass them in favor of their gun control talking points.

The liberal pundits on the news all out ignored the fact that Kelley was only able to purchase a weapon due to a clerical error on the Air Force’s end. They also dismissed the truth that the deranged gunman was stopped from shedding more innocent blood by a good guy with a gun. However,  Mike Jordan, whose son witnessed the carnage inside the Texas church did not forget those facts and wanted all of America to know them when he appeared on Fox News, Monday night.

Though what caught the attention of everyone was the shirt Jordan wore during his interview with Laura Ingraham that has enraged liberals but has garnered cheers from conservatives. 

The left has wasted no time in politicizing the shooting in Texas that claimed innocent lives and has left the country in shock. Taking their cue from the Rahm Emanuel playbook of “never letting a crisis go to waste,” liberals have pounced on this tragedy to further push gun control onto weary Americans. Instead of the left focusing on the facts that the gunman only purchased the gun due to a clerical error and an NRA member stopped the shooter, they’d rather do their best to strip law-abiding citizens of their rights to bear arms.

So, when Mike Jordan was interviewed on Monday night to discuss the horrific event, he wore a shirt that had gun grabbing liberals heads implode.

Here is more from Conservative Tribune:

Jordan’s stand for Second Amendment rights didn’t stop with his attire. He also noted that an acquaintance of his son, who usually legally carries, didn’t bring his gun along to church that day.

“What if this was the day he didn’t leave that firearm at home? What if he did take it with him? …

“If you have one person on the inside that is armed to return fire, it may not have stopped people from dying,” Jordan added. “But it would have been a distraction, it would have gotten that guy’s attention.”

While no one in the church stopped the killer, another armed citizen did: namely, Stephen Willeford.

“I kept hearing the shots, one after another, very rapid shots — just ‘pop pop pop pop’ and I knew every one of those shots represented someone, that it was aimed at someone, that they weren’t just random shots,” Willeford said, according to KHBS-TV.

That’s when he loaded his magazine and ran toward the First Baptist Church, not even bothering to put on his shoes.

“He saw me and I saw him,” Willeford said. “I was standing behind a pickup truck for cover.”

“I know I hit him,” he added. “He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his side window. When the window dropped, I fired another round at him again.”

Of the two men, Stephen Willeford was legally allowed to own a firearm under the law. The shooter was not, but the government failed. Willeford stopped what could have been a greater tragedy.

There is no telling how many more innocent lives were saved if it wasn’t for the fast actions of the Stephen Willeford that day. And, while the left would love to claim that they are the party that stands for love and compassion, neither of those attributes will save an innocent life when a criminal is committing a crime.

The only thing that the left is concerned with is doing whatever they can to strip Americans of their rights to force citizens into full government control. The point of the Second Amendment is not only to protect ourselves from people who choose to do us harm but chiefly to protect us from a tyrannical government. If the second amendment was eradicated in the name of safety, then who would protect us from that same government that would choose to do us harm?

CNN Just Publicly Humiliated Texas Hero For Gunning Down Killer – Backfires BIG With His 2-Word Response

Don’t mess with Texas heroes!

Published

on

From tragedy, heroes are born!

A man who is now being hailed as a hero for his pursuit of the gunman responsible for the Texas church shooting which left 26 people dead and 20 injured described the car chase that ended with the shooter crashing his vehicle.

Johnnie Langendorff was driving near the Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church on Sunday when he saw two men shooting at each other outside of the building. The two men involved in the exchange of gunfire were the church shooter, who has been identified as Devin Kelley, and a local area resident, Stephen Willeford. As he was driving by Langendorff said Willeford asked him for help after the shooter was wounded and fled in his car. Willeford then pursued the killer at speeds of over 95 miles per hour until, because of his wounds, Kelley ran his vehicle off the road and then shot himself dead.

The Other McCain Reports:

TEXAS CHURCH MASSACRE: ‘Creepy’ Atheist Was Stopped by Armed Citizen

Crucial facts about the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, are beginning to emerge. The perpetrator, 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, was given a bad-conduct discharge from the Air Force three years ago after he assaulted his wife and infant child in 2012. Acquaintances of Kelley told the Daily Mail that he was “creepy,” “crazy” and “weird,” with a habit of posting atheist rants online. In interviews this morning, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said that Kelley had been denied a state permit to carry a weapon, and Abbott also said he believes the investigation will show that the Sutherland Springs church was not a target that Kelley chose at random. The Daily Beast reported Sunday that Kelley’s estranged wife’s mother listed a Sutherland Springs address, which seemed to indicate a motive of personal revenge.

The slaughter at the church was stopped by an armed citizen:

Two quick-thinking locals have been hailed as heroes for stopping the man responsible for the worst ever mass shooting in Texas which left 26 dead.

Stephen Willeford, 55, confronted gunman Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, when he was leaving First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, wounding him, before he and Johnnie Langendorff, 27, chased him in a car after he fled.

During the 95mph car chase, Kelley lost control of his vehicle and ran off the road, before shooting himself in the head. He called his father shortly before to say he had been shot and didn’t think he was going to make it.

Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Freeman Martin said Willeford ran out his home barefoot with his rifle and ‘engaged the suspect’. . . .

Willeford, a local plumber with no military experience, is however an excellent shot . . . and when he came face to face with Kelley, he shot in between his body armor, hitting him in his side.

At this point Langendorff . . . came across the exchange of fire.

When Kelley dropped his Ruger assault rifle and fled in an SUV, Willeford came up to Langendorff and hopped in his truck.

‘The neighbor with the rifle came to my truck and he opened my door and said, “He shot up the church”, and got in, Langendorff told Good Morning America. ‘He said, “Chase him” so that’s what I did. I just chase him.’ . . .

Langendorff told KSAT 12 that he’d been speeding at 95mph, while on the phone to dispatch, while Willeford kept his rifle trained on the gunman’s car.

As they approached a sharp curve in the road, near the 307 and 539, he said Kelley appeared to lose control and his car swerved off the road.

That’s when I put the truck in park,’ he said. ‘The other gentleman jumped out, and had his rifle on him. He didn’t move after that.’

Kelley was already dead when they found him inside his vehicle having shot himself dead. Police revealed during a press conference on Monday that the gunman called his father to let him know he had been shot and he didn’t think he was going to make it.

‘At this time we believe that he had a self-inflicted gunshot wound,’ Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told CBS News on Monday.

We can expect to learn more about the gunman’s background and motive in the coming days, while Democrats demand new gun-control laws, but the reality here is that the Good Guy with a gun stopped the Bad Guy with a gun, and what Democrats want is to disarm the Good Guys.

But here is the best part of the whole saga. A liberal CNN reporter interviewed Willeford on live television and he was taken back by the responses he got to his questions.

Johnnie Langendorff: Real American Hero

America. F**k yeah.

Posted by The Daily Caller on Monday, November 6, 2017

The Liberal CNN report just couldn’t understand the answers. And the reason he couldn’t is simple. Liberals just don’t understand what the American spirit is. They don’t understand American defiance.

The American spirit is what made America what it is. We Americans never go round picking fights, but we will never run away from a fight neither. We are, and will always be, the first ones to lend a helping hand when the time comes that we are needed. Even when it comes to foreign nations. The motto “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave” isn’t just a motto. It’s what we live by. We will never back down and we will never surrender. This hero, Mr. Willeford, is the embodiment of that it is to be an American. Who knows how many more would have died if not for these two individuals who risked their own lives to stop a killer that Sunday morning.

Please share in support of these two heroes….
