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

It is a serious question for the next four months. Who do we want answering the phone at 2 A.M.

PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener makes the case that Harris should invoke the 25th Amendment so we don’t have a doddering fool trying to wake up to save America. Harris with her faculties is better than Joe without them, and it is Obama and his crew making decisions anyway.

AND… He tells us why it doesn’t give Kamala any more chance of beating Donald Trump… Watch below:

Will You Take Action to Assure GOP Victory on November 5?

In less than 17 weeks, the GOP will take back the White House, and hopefully the Senate and House, and begin to restore America. Or, we’ll face a gargantuan nightmare that will all but seal the fate of this nation. Do not be fooled by Joe Biden’s defiance of those calling for him to withdraw. Any Democrat challenger will be a danger to us because the DEMOCRATS WILL CHEAT IN UNPRECEDENTED WAYS.

Time is of the essence. While being informed is wonderful, taking action is paramount. What exactly will you do to ensure that we achieve victory? It is no longer sufficient to be a concerned bystander.

No End to the Left’s Destruction

Every day when you log on to news sites, you are flabbergasted by the degree to which the radical Left continues to impose its civilization destroying policies, programs, and activities on the rest of us. There is no end game for the Left, no bottom, and no limits to their mass insanity.

Most recently, we have learned of a professional couple who was greeted at 6 a.m. by armed FBI agents banging on their door to arrest them for having the temerity of stepping into the Capitol on January 6, for 12 minutes, ushered in by Capitol guards. We have witnessed the unending persecution and prosecution of Donald Trump over non-crimes that have been concocted in unison and are part of an overall strategy emanating from the White House.

We have witnessed corrupt district attorneys, corrupt prosecutors, and a corrupt press. Donald Trump is merely the bellwether. All other Republican politicians will be fair game from here on out, and if we lose the election in November, with little or no recourse. One by one, the maniacal Left will quash dissent in ways that perhaps we currently cannot imagine.

The Left is Maniacal

The logical outcome to having the Left predominate in all areas of society is a totalitarian regime. Don’t discount this scenario. As Leftists ultimately do everywhere, they demand compliance. Thought control is their desired form of servitude. For those who do not comply, execution is not out of the question. Like radical Islam, we’re dealing with a malevolent genie that has escaped bottle, has no intention of ever subsiding, and wants everyone to either totally capitulate, or be imprisoned, deported, or terminated.

There will be no effective way to dismantle the maniacal leftist machine if Joe Biden is re-elected, he continues to be the puppet of Obama and far Leftists, and the border continues to be flooded with illegals — until Democrats have congressional representation that steadfastly insures a permanent majority. At that juncture, they will pack the Supreme Court. They will end the Electoral College. They will ramp up gender dysphoria opportunities wherever they might lie.

They will continue to show poor judgment and ridiculous weakness on the world stage. They will kowtow to China on a wide spectrum of issues. They will embolden our enemies to the point where such enemies are ready to pick apart America. This is not hyperbole and is all too likely.

Nothing here is beyond the bounds of possibility and with each passing week becomes more likely for the distant if not foreseeable future. In a sentence, we simply must win in November. No alternative will suffice.

All of Us

All of which leads to the point that every single person voting Republican needs to decide now, how they will lend support to the cause. In what ways will you participate? How will you volunteer, where, when and for what duration? Will you donate money? Who will you influence to vote GOP?

How will you support your candidates locally, regionally, and nationally? How are you going to impact others? It would not be sufficient to say, “I was busy,” or “I felt we had an overwhelming majority.” This approach is gambling with the future of our nation, the future of our communities, and the future of our families.

If we are to win by an overwhelming majority, let us each assure one another that we did everything we could to make sure that that is the result. To do less is to simply take a child-like approach to what is perhaps the most eventful year since 1776, 1812, 1861, 1941, 1968, and 2001. There will be no palatable tomorrow if we lose in November.
