URGENT: The Executive Power Play on Gun Control

Published

on

First a Pandemic and now an “Epidemic!”

The President yesterday announced his aggressive SIX STEP plan on “curbing gun violence”, calling it “an Epidemic that has to stop.

He announced this six step plan which includes tighter rules on buyers of home-assembled “ghost guns” {a new scare tactic term for gun parts without serial numbers} and directing the DOJ to reconstruct their policy on the already 3MIL + sold Pistol stabilizing braces (PSB) and already manufactured firearms equipped with the PSB for certain model firearms like the (AR-15). He also directed them to model “red flag” or ERPO legislation for states; funds for community-based violence intervention; an annual report on firearms trafficking and last but not least the Universal Background Checks expansion.

Biden went on to nominate “an avid gun-control guy” David Chipman to be director of the BATFE. Chipman served as an adviser at Giffords, an advocacy group founded by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot at an Arizona political event in a 2011.

This is an epidemic, for God’s sake,” Biden said. “And it has to stop.”

He called his actions “totally consistent with the Second Amendment.”

Is it Consistent with the Second Amendment?

Not No, but Hell, NO! In fact, when you study this plan in detail it is extremely overreaching for the average law abiding Americans who possess over 390million guns nationwide. Here are some of the reasons why!

  1. Dictating how much ammunition to possess! Read the fine print on this topic.
  2. The expansion of Registering over 3Million firearms with Pistol Stabilizing Braces.
  3. Reframing the definition of “individual gun sales” and “gun show loopholes”.
  4. Incorporating a National “Red Flag Laws” this doesn’t affect the Second Amendment but it damn sure affects the expansion of the fourth amendment. This is alarming.

As we’ve seen over and over again, these measures do nothing to reduce gun violence but they do make people more vulnerable to criminals. People have a right to defend themselves, and the government should have no role in telling people how to do it,”Julie Gunlock, director of the Center for Progress and Innovation stated.

Red Flag Laws- Why this should scare you!

Have you ever heard of someone who had a restraining order on them for some bogus reason and it took them forever to get rid of it, due to a lack of due process or an angry ex lover or horrible neighbor or other family member? Maybe you’ve even seen it in a movie… In my opinion This is the the thought processes behind these overreaching and extremely aggressive Red Flag Laws.

So, here’s why they want to expand the definition of the “Fourth Amendment” which by the way speaks on “Unreasonable Search and Seizures”.  Let’s just say, Bob was overheard arguing with his wife Jane, by their neighbor Sam.  Sam is concerned, he doesn’t know the circumstance and he’s a nosy neighbor anyway, and then he realizes that Bob has an NRA sticker, “Oh, No” he thinks!  Bob, must have guns, and he’s yelling at Jane, I’m concerned that now he may be too angry and he may be a “threat to Jane and my family too”. So, Bob gets a visit from the cops, who come in seize his guns and holds him in jail until it can be sorted out. Bob had a bad day at work and now is in jail due to a nosy neighbor, over reaching laws and a ruined record with no priors and now a destroyed home life.

Now, somehow Bob has to prove his innocence due to this “Preemptive Strike” to thwart crime by a tyrannical government.  Is this a bit far fetched? I don’t think so! Who is to decide that he should have his guns seized, the brand new cop on the scene?

There’s no due process? Of course, even as a prior law enforcement officer, I would want the guns removed first just for scene safety, but what about Bob? Although he had some marital issues that didn’t constitute and domestic violence at all, he is now nearly a felon without having committed a crime due to SUBJECTIVE REASONING AND INTERPRETATION of the law.

Under this “Leaping Logic” as I like to say, nearly anyone can turn anyone in who they think could be a threat! It’s a perfect weapon for ex spouses and bitter friends and family members to cripple a decent citizen. That’s my two cents on that… Bottom line is it may help some but at what is the cost of Freedom to MILLIONS of law abiding Citizens?

Universal Background Checks

Did you know that there is a National Background Check system already in place? It’s called the FBI NICS. This system has been in place for years and every licensed gun dealer across the country MUST use it for EVERY GUN SOLD! If you are 18yrs of age and want to purchase a rifle or shotgun or 21 to purchase a handgun (this is typical in most states like here in Arizona. (Some states are more strict). The point is this disclaimer to the citizenry that guns are being purchased all over the country without background checks is disingenuous and it’s more of the same fear-mongering!

One item I may agree with if I had to give something across the aisle would be for the average joe to do a standard NICS check on guns sold at gun shows.. I am a bit torn when I say that because the Libertarian in me says “NO” to any background checks, and the prior law enforcement side of me says, well, ya never know about some people and a check “MAY” help a bit.

On another note, while I was running Patriot Outdoors in New Mexico for 16+years, we conducted nearly 10-12K background checks in my recollection and out of all of those NICS checks, only 4 turned up to be denials…. Out of those 4 denials, 2 were appealed and were able to purchase their firearms.  What does that tell you? It’s a bad system or maybe just maybe Bad Guys don’t predominately buy guns in legitimate gun stores.

Pistol Stabilizing Braces

What is a Pistol Stabilizing Brace? Well, the  ATF approved such a device in 2013. Since then over 1 million have been manufactured and sold and over 2 million firearms were made incorporating the brace or other variants of it.

Now, with Biden in power, he is so called “weaponizing the ATF” with his liberal agenda and bipartisan appointees to basically go after law abiding citizens who under the law purchased these braces for their guns legally.

By the Way in 2014, the ATF clarified it’s position on PSB’s and said that the brace did not constitute the gun as a Short Barreled Rifle. This was under an Obama Presidency.

Depending on delivery of the law and enforcement could make millions of gun owners felons overnight if they don’t comply with REGISTRATION of their over the counter guns to the NFA and make them Class 3 and pay 200.00 for each brace they have and submit to fingerprints and another background check according to some sources.

for what purpose, now we are saying that due to a few criminal acts all of a sudden millions of gun owners are now affected?How about we enforce the law and throw the book at them for their heinous acts.

“One person’s failure (crime) is not a justification to restrict another person’s liberties!” ~David Bates NH State Representative

The Balance of Freedom & Safety

I am all for safety, I am all for freedom. If you are reading this I can bet that you all are as well. But, we have to have some serious conversations concerning the mentally ill that seem to be trending lately with these heinous acts, but due this with a pragmatic approach to protecting the liberties of the lawful. It is a slippery slope, when we start injecting subjective thinking and “Grey” areas left to interpretation of our daily freedoms.

It is my belief that this is not just a head problem that has caused some of this chaos over the years but a heart problem, a leadership problem, a Virtue Problem. We have allowed our society to embrace so much freedom that we have lost some of our innocence and values that helped create such a beautiful way of American Living.. The Family Unit, The Male Role model for our children and our wives, The Accountability of each other to lift each other up and keep ourselves to standards. It’s okay to be accepting and have tolerance but not so much that we lose our way and with a “laze faire” attitude approach.

Franklin said this:

 

What Can You Do?

You can get involved and get educated.. Most voters, don’t know who or why they are voting until election day! Do your homework, I know of many who didn’t realize the impact and the negative effect of a Biden administration until now! You have to be intentional in this life that we live. Get involved and remember that “We the People” still exist. We are in control of our Government not the other way around. I’d recommend funding organizations that support your beliefs and way of living, locally, regionally and nationally. It’s time to wake up and smell the coffee and not be apathetic to the leadership in office at any level no matter which side of the aisle you are on!

My Thoughts

I fear if we do not step up and speak out, respectfully, intelligently and persistently, we will remain outspoken and our liberties will be decreased for us, for our children and in ultimately reduce the integrity and stability of our great nation”…SD Powell

The 90-year Shame of the New York Times

Despite its constant lies, propaganda, and censorship, the New York Times is regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’

Published

on

The New York Times deliberately buried the story known as the Terror-Famine, in 1932 and 1933, which astoundingly killed 3.9 to 7.0 million Ukrainians, at least one out of every eight people, perhaps one out of every four people.

The editors at the Times were well aware that the famine was orchestrated by Joseph Stalin who forbade outside food and aid shipments, confiscated household food items, and restricted the mobility of Ukrainian citizens.

What made Stalin do this to a region known as “the world’s breadbasket”? He sought to punish independence-minded Ukrainians, quash anyone who represented a threat to his totalitarian government, and vanquish Ukraine’s small farms in favor of Soviet state-run collectives. Stalin lost no sleep over the legions of emaciated bodies, near death, scratching for any morsel of food they could find.

Maniacal and Mendacious

Why did The New York Times bury this heart-wrenching, world-shaking story? Then, as now, their leftist bent was so intense and so all-encompassing that they couldn’t help themselves. The blunt truth is that they do not care who is hurt as long as socialist/Marxist/communist ideology prevails on earth.

In another 10 years, it will be at least 100 years since the Times and other heavily left-leaning organizations, which today comprise the highly biased ‘mainstream media,’ have been dominant.

In 2121, one hundred years from now, is it realistic to believe that the facade which the mainstream media has foisted on Americans and on free people around the globe will not continue to dominate?

Will their maniacal ideology, somehow, finally be exposed by some new form of information dissemination or some fundamental shift in media coverage?

Sheeple at the Trough

Just how biased and detrimental their slanted news coverage has been to humanity, globally, is difficult to fathom. For decades on end, when you prop up socialist, Marxist, or communist regimes, are you helping anyone?

The mainstream media has held a news and information monopoly for so long, so skillfully, that the facade is not remotely understood by those in its spell, and bitterly denounced by those who see the mainstream press for what it really is. In the long run, truth generally prevails.

Even today, after five years of attempting to prove it, not a shred of evidence indicates that Donald Trump, his administration, or his campaign colluded with Russia.

Still, you have Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and all the other dolts in Congress who will readily appear on TV and spew lies. They play the ‘talking head’ game with sympathetic hosts and continue the guise, holding sway over those who don’t know how to find out the truth.

A Stranglehold for the Ages

The stranglehold that the Left and the mainstream media has on humanity leads to some intriguing philosophical questions. Even before the mass media came into being, has there always been some entity that enforced its will upon the unwitting masses?

Throughout history, dictators and other rulers imposed their version of the truth on the unwitting masses. Even in societies where news and information was somewhat freely exchanged, has there always been a faction that sought to slant reality and the will of others? It seems likely.

In the 21st century, roughly half of the U.S. and roughly half of the globe are still subject to Leftist manipulation. Despite all the information sources that exist today, why does so much of the world still fall for obviously manufactured and manipulated news?

How can people keep tuning in to CNN or MSNBC, or for that matter the nightly news on ABC, NBC, or CBS? How many times does CBS have to be caught red-handed doctoring the news, slanting stories on 60 Minutes, and laying traps for people like Governor Ron DeSantis, only to be exposed?

And then, within a matter of days, having learned nothing, CBS reverts right back to more of their insidious ways of presenting information.

Living with Perpetual Lies

How often can The New York Times offer a story the latter proves to be completely untrue, and its editors knew was untrue at the time, and yet its readership is unfazed?

How can the Times continue to be regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’? What tidal wave of human understanding, once and for all, needs to occur before we universally recognize highly biased reporting sources for what they are?

In the U.K., news publications openly advocate a position, left or right, and don’t play pretend. Consumers understand the bias that each media outlet or newspaper maintains, can read articles, and judge them accordingly.

In the U.S., the mainstream press continues to push lie that they offer an objective, balanced view of what’s happening in the world. How can they continue to do this? Sadly, enough fools buy what they say… lock, stock, and barrel.

Hey Liz Cheney, And Other RINOs, Here’s the Truth!
