Nationwide March for Our Rights in Support of the Second Amendment to be Held on Saturday

On Saturday July 7th, 2A supporters across the country will be marching and rallying at an event called the “March for Our Rights.” The marches will take place in several major cities and to find one near you, visit their Facebook page.

March for Our Rights is a student led organization that advocates for the Second Amendment. From their web site:

WHO WE ARE

We are students across the country concerned with the growing idea that the Second Amendment is outdated and should be thrown out. As law-abiding citizens and current/future voters, we want to make sure that the Constitution and America’s founding principles stay intact.

Self-determination and the ability to defend life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is essential in keeping this republic functioning.

OUR MISSION

To show continued support of our founding documents, especially the Constitution and specifically the 2nd Amendment.

To change the student-led narrative that there is only one side to the gun control debate.

REMINDER

Both as a movement and as individuals, we are deeply saddened by the loss of life stemming from firearms. As supporters of the Second Amendment, we strive to ensure the communal safety of our fellow American citizens. We simply believe that gun control is not the answer.

Notable speakers at the events include Joe Walsh, Dick Heller, Maj Toure (founder of Black Guns Matter), singer/actress Kaya Jones and Amy Robbins (founder Alexo Athletica).

Illinois Town Bans Assault Weapons, Will Fine Owners Who Keep Them

If you live in Deerfield, Ill. and own an AR-15, AK-47, Uzis or other semi-automatic rifle capable of accepting a large magazine, you are now banned from owning that weapon.

An ordinance which passed unanimously by the Deerfield Village Board states “the move is in the best interest of public health and will spur a culture change toward the normative value that assault weapons should have no role or purpose in civil society.” It also states that weapons are “not reasonably necessary to protect an individual’s right of self-defense” or to preserve a well-regulated militia.”

The ban will go into effect on June 13 and people who already own the weapons will not be grandfathered in or allowed to keep them. If they choose not to get rid of them or move them elsewhere, hefty fines will ensue.

From USA Today:

Deerfield residents with assault weapons may sell them, hand them over to police or move them out of the village within 60 days of the ordinance going into effect. There are exceptions for law enforcement officers and members of the military.

Violating the ordinance could result in a fine of at least $250 and up to $1,000 for each day the violation occurs.

Guns Save Life, a gun advocacy group, has already filed a suit against the town and the NRA is backing them.

Punishing law abiding gun owners who haven’t committed any crimes. Confiscation. Outright attacking the language and meaning of the Second Amendment. Skipping due process.

But they’re not coming for our guns, right?

 

 

Fox News releases statement on Laura Ingraham, to stand behind her

It appears David Hogg has failed…at least for the moment.

Following last week’s brouhaha where Laura Ingraham tweeted a rather dumb message about Hogg being rejected from college, advertisers began dropping like flies, at Hogg’s urging. You know, because Ingraham said something Hogg didn’t like and deserved to be silenced.

After the dustup, Ingraham tweeted a message of apology.

But receiving an apology from Ingraham was never the goal. Instead, Hogg stated he wanted an apology from the entire network.  Big surprise, I know. A leftist given an inch and trying to take a mile.

Anyway, some thought Ingraham’s show would actually be taken off the air due to the action’s of a 17-year-old and a few companies willing to happily submit to a high school student’s demands. Virtue signaling at its best…or worst, I guess.

Anyway, Fox News put out a message Monday stating that Ingraham’s show isn’t going anywhere.

While not a big fan of Ingraham, silencing her or anyone else for that matter because they refuse to going along with the in vogue opinion of the day isn’t a good precedent.

Rachel Maddow has every right to be heard. Chris Hayes has every right to be heard. Heck, even David Hogg has the right to be heard.

However, at this point it appears that Hogg’s crusade to silence those who aren’t in complete and total agreement with him has failed.

Just don’t let him or CNN know.

‘Conservative’ Trump proposes skipping due process, grabbing guns

In case you didn’t know, Donald J. Trump is not a conservative. Yes, he may have an “R” by his name, but the man is not a conservative.

Don’t believe me? Still insist that the man currently occupying the Oval Office is a conservative? Ok, but just take some time and take a gander at the little clip below.

Still think the man who “wants to take the guns first” and “skip due process and take the the guns,” is a conservative?

In what world, besides that of Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Kimberly Guilfoyle and anyone else entirely sold out to Trump, is gun grabbing a conservative position? The truth is, it simply is not.

What Trump is proposing in this clip is gun grabbing. Gun grabbing is the very thing so many Trump supporters said and feared Hillary would do if she became president. It’s the very thing so many Trump supporters told us that Obama wanted to do.

Now, what Pence was articulating before Trump jumped in and decided to say one of the most asinine things ever, was the conservative position. You know, adhering to the law, working with law enforcement and the courts and not going around the law, doing whatever pleases President Trump.

“But, but…Trump was our only choice. He was so much better than Hillary.” Well, not so much, remember there was Rubio, Cruz, Bush, Kasich, Christie, Huckabee, Carson, Paul, Walker, Sanctorum, Fiorina, Jindal and Graham.

Also, something else to remember that was said over and over by many a Trump supporter: “Hillary was “gunna take ‘er guns!”  Now, President Trump has actually verbalized taking guns…without even duue process.

Not a conservative, not by a long shot.

CNN Town Hall Was An Emotion Fueled Attack on the GOP and the NRA

Last night CNN held a town hall with the students, parents and teachers from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Jake Tapper served as moderator and was joined by Florida Senators Marco Rubio, Bill Nelson, Rep. Ted Deutch, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

It could have been an important and much needed conversation, with both sides offering suggestions and discussing practical solutions. Instead, it turned into an angry, emotionally charged attack on the GOP, NRA and the Second Amendment.

One student tried to back Marco Rubio into a corner by asking him to publicly declare that he would not accept any more money from the NRA.

When trying to talk with the father of a student who died in the attack, he was repeatedly booed by the crowd when discussing fixing laws we already have instead of full on banning semi-automatic weapons.

Dana Loesch, a spokesperson for the NRA and conservative talk show host, was met with even more distain from the crowd. When Emma Gonzalez asked her question, she precluded it with a statement saying ” Dana Loesch, I want you to know that we will support your two children in the way that we will not – – you will not.” She then went on to ask Loesch about making it harder to obtain semi-automatic weapons and modifications such as bump stocks.

Amid the booing, people in the crowd also started yelling “murderer” and “burn her” at Loesch while she was responding to questions.

Sheriff Israel even accused her of not standing up for the students because she wouldn’t say the NRA wanted less weapons but then later on said “America, there’s one person responsible for this act. That’s the detestable violent killer. He is responsible for this act. No other — nobody else but him.”

Muskets came up. A well regulated militia came up. The time era the Second Amendment was written in came up. Each time Loesch tried to present facts and talk to the crowd about the language and how it was written, she got booed. If they’d had rotten tomatoes, it’s probable people wouldn’t have been throwing them at her. And in an interview with a student following the town hall, they were still livid with the NRA, saying they offer no solutions to change.

This went on for two hours and while these students and parents have every right to be emotional and express that outrage, this was supposed to be a forum for discussion and instead it turned into a mob rule rally for a full repeal of the Second Amendment.
Major props to Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch for going into that lion’s den in the first place. It was hostile, emotional and downright infuriating that these two people, who are trying to work with the other side were treated so disrespectfully. And shame on CNN for exploiting the victims of this tragedy to push an obvious gun control agenda and score ratings, just one week after the school shooting.

Celebrities Band Together to #RejectTheNRA

Some of Hollywood’s top entertainers have come together to urge you to text REJECT to 644-33, which will connect you to Everytown for Gun Safety (surprise, surprise) and they will connect you to your representatives so you can tell them you “reject the NRA’s radical agenda.” They’ll even help you with the right words to say!

In the PSA, big names like Melissa McCarthy, Julianne Moore, Adam Scott, Emma Stone and Elizabeth Banks can be seen calling their congressmen and telling them to oppose the SHARE Act which  “could make mass shootings even more deadly” by “rolling back gun silencer safety laws.”

They also oppose concealed reciprocity legislation, which would allow gun owners to carry firearms across state lines.

The PSA, which is (not surprisingly) sponsored by Everytown and Moms Demand Action, is spearheaded by Moore, who began working with Everytown in 2015. She plans to ‘send one million phone calls to Congress until the next vote in 2018 to urge representatives to reject the agenda of the National Rifle Association.’

Because, you know, somehow the NRA is responsible for people committing crimes.

You’d think that in light of what’s coming out of Hollywood with the Weinstein scandal, that these celebrities would be in favor of people, especially women, arming themselves to protect against the sexual predators in their own circles.

Not to mention that many of these celebrities PROFIT off of action movies where they seem to have no problem using a gun when the role requires it.

Dana Loesch Gets Apology from Yashar Ali; Called “Terrorist” by Kathleen Rice

Dana Loesch has been brutally attacked the last couple weeks by journalists (and now even a congresswoman) on the left who claim she uses the word “fist” instead of “fisk” in this NRA ad.

Fisk, in case you didn’t know, basically means to fact check and in the ad, Loesch calls for fact-checking of the NY Times. The NRA video series is called “Clenched Fist of Truth.” As you can imagine, things got nasty on Twitter toward Loesch AND liberals claimed she was inciting violence against the newspaper.

However, Yashar Ali of New York Magazine, Huff Post and Mother Jones decided things had gone a bit too far and issued this apology to Loesch yesterday.

Dana graciously accepted his apology.

But before the dust settled on the previous attack from Ali, she was then dealt ANOTHER blow from New York Congresswoman, Kathleen Rice, who decided to call Dana and ALL members of the NRA domestic security threats under the Trump administration.

Conservative women like Loesch are increasingly being attacked by members of the left, especially those who strongly support the Second Amendment. Calling Dana and ALL members of the NRA terrorists is completely outrageous and infuriating.

Many NRA members are former and current members of our military. More importantly, they are LEGAL gun owners who follow their state regulations for buying and carrying firearms.

Rice should apologize to Dana and the millions of NRA (and non-NRA) gun owners she just insulted. However, according to a statement from her spokesperson,  it doesn’t look like that will be happening anytime soon.

#IStandWithDana.
