Black Lives Matter Mob Surround Man's Home, Police Reportedly Arrest Man For 'Brandishing' Gun

Black Lives Matter agitators organized a protest outside a Trump-supporting man's residential home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Tuesday night and rather than arrest the mob for harassment and causing a public disturbance police reportedly arrested the man for "brandishing" a gun from inside his home at the mob.

Gun Controllers Try to Hide Joe Biden’s Anti-gun Extremism

NRA members and other gun rights advocates are likely already aware of Biden and Harris’s radical plans for the Second Amendment and no amount of deception from gun control advocates or the press will divert them from the truth. However, Second Amendment advocates should work to inform more casual political observers of the singular danger the 2020 Democratic presidential ticket poses to their rights. Knowledgeable gun owners have a responsibility to ensure their family, friends, and other liberty-minded individuals do not succumb to Rosenthal and others’ flagrant misinformation.

Anti-Gun Violence Research Consortium Admits Problems Not The Gun, But The Individual

In retrospect, two years since this historic and highly organized group came together, using lies and deception in their talking points, as well as their own positions of power  – grossly ignoring their own findings – we have more gun control laws, and no attention placed on what we really need, mental health reform, with real help – not sound bite politics.

Below the Radar: Jaime’s Law

While we place a lot of the focus on defending against laws that target firearms, anti-Second Amendment extremists also target ammunition. In a way, this ammunition control can be worse – because those who exercise their Second Amendment rights need to purchase ammunition.

Anti-gun Politicians Seek to Tax Your 2nd Amendment Rights Into Oblivion

In 1819, Chief Justice John Marshall of the U.S. Supreme Court famously wrote:  “the power to tax involves the power to destroy ….” -- This truism has not been lost on firearm prohibitionists, who when unable to ban guns outright have often tried to tax them out of reach of the average citizen.

Another Record of NICS Checks and Gun Sales for August 2020

A great many gun owners have been complacent. In 2020, with the numerous riots, the push to defund the police, the attempt to delegitimize the police, and the Supreme Court refusing to hear Second Amendment cases, it is harder to ignore the utility of firearms ownership and the threats to the Republic.

Former Senator Says ‘Women Sick of All These Guns.’ Women Say Otherwise

Former U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) was replaced by voters in 2018 and is now a political talk show pundit. During a discussion about the violence erupting in America’s communities, including Kenosha, Wisconsin, Portland, Oregon, and her home-state St. Louis, Missouri, Sen. McCaskill opined women are “sick of all these guns.” Data shows she couldn’t be more mistaken.

As Kenosha and Minneapolis Burn, Millions of Americans Buy Guns

It’s increasingly clear to even the average American that if riots come to your neighborhood, you’re on your own. The message received is increasingly be this: if your plan is to wait until the police show up to provide “protection,” be prepared to wait a long time. Consequently, as violence appears to surge in America’s cities, millions of Americans have become first-time gun owners.

As Kenosha & Minneapolis Burn, Millions Of Americans Buy Guns

Authored by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute,

It’s increasingly clear to even the average American that if riots come to your neighborhood, you’re on your own. The message received is increasingly be this:

if your plan is to wait until the police show up to provide "protection," be prepared to wait a long time.

Consequently, as violence appears to surge in America's cities, millions of Americans have become first-time gun owners.

Government Officials Aren't Keeping Us "Safe"
There are two trends at work which are making Americans doubt government law enforcement is reliable and effective.

On the one hand, the public is witnessing nightly displays of looting, rioting, and general civil unrest.

At the same time, many police officers don't appear particularly able or willing to defend the public against looters and rioters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at what is going in in major US metropolitan areas, can you blame first-time gun owners for doing what they are doing?!?

I sure as heck cannot!!

Defending yourself against BLM and Antifa terrorism makes you a villain, according to the mainstream media

This has pretty much become the M.O. of the mainstream media in the age of “elevating black voices.” No matter what the BLM and Antifa mobs do, whether it involves destruction or violence, it is justified as demonstration of “protest.” And no matter what those being targeted do to try to defend themselves, it is dubbed as “aggression” and “racism.” -- The media, in other words, is complicit in the violent destruction of America at the hands of BLM and Antifa, glorifying its members as “heroes” while decrying patriots as “part of the problem.” Pay close attention to how the narratives are written and see for yourself the way that self-defense is quickly becoming an act of “terrorism” in the eyes of the far-left corporate media.

Political Elite Value Their Own Safety, NOT YOURS

Through their actions, these politicians have made clear that they are willing to sacrifice the safety of their constituents, but are unwilling to compromise their personal safety in the process.

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,Gun sales were up 72% compared to this time last year,  with first-time buyers leading the pack. Americans are likely sensing that something is horribly wrong with the rigged system we are forced to live under.

According to a report by the Washington Post, the National Sports Shooting Foundation says that first-time gun buyers played a heavy role in the increase. Women and black Americans have also shown interest in arming themselves this year.

“Nearly 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the very first time in 2020. NSSF surveyed firearm retailers which reported that 40% of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm,” the organization said in its analysis, which tracked background checks associated with the sale of a firearm reported by the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System.

The organization said this uptick in purchases by those who have not owned a gun before, equates to nearly 5 million first-time gun owners in the first seven months of 2020.

DETROIT FIREARM INSTRUCTORS UNITE TO GIVE 1,938 WOMEN FREE SHOOTING SKILLS

Firearm Instructors united August 15th and 16th in Taylor – a Detroit suburb – to provide free firearm training to 1,938 metro-Detroit women. They answered a call for assistance by Rick Ector, a Detroit Firearm Instructor, who conducts an annual program to give women a free range safety briefing and a free shooting lesson. Last year, 814 local women were trained by the program. At that point in time, it was the program’s highest-ever attendance total.

The program was created by Ector nine years ago after watching a local story on the news about a woman’s lifeless and naked body being found in a deserted field. He was inspired to ask four fellow firearm instructors he knew to donate their time to help him give women a free shooting lesson. That year fifty women were trained. All expenses were donated by the gun range and Ector.

NY Politician Introduces Bill to Criminalize Sale & Manufacture of Firearms

The takeaway for gun owners could not be clearer: Firearm prohibition activists intend to weaponize the legal system against the industry that sustains their rights. -- And make no mistake, the same politically-motivated judges who once tried to abolish the Second Amendment’s protection for individual gun owners entirely would be only too happy to accommodate them.

Your Comprehensive Guide to Kamala Harris and The Second Amendment

In short, when Senator Harris claims to support the Second Amendment, she is not telling the truth. The facts show that she has been an avowed enemy of the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Whether it is supporting bans on firearms, denying people the ability to carry firearms for personal protection, depriving gun owners of privacy and due process, or targeting manufacturers and dealers, she has not been on the side of freedom. -- Quite frankly, Harris has one of the most anti-Second Amendment track records we have ever seen for a person on a major party’s presidential ticket. She will be a heartbeat away from the presidency should Joe Biden win. Second Amendment supporters should cast their votes accordingly.

Aug 24 14:59

Never forget: If Kamala Harris takes over as president, she WILL come after guns with a vengeance and may send law enforcement to take them

And let’s be clear about something else: The amendment’s “shall not be infringed” clause is among the most ignored passages in the U.S. Constitution. It’s ignored by members of Congress, federal and state judges, city councils, Left-wing anti-gun groups, and Americans who don’t think anyone should have a gun. -- The clause is simple, straightforward, and unambiguous. It doesn’t say ‘shall not be infringed unless…’

A Biden-Harris Administration Will Make You an Offer You Can’t Refuse

It’s no secret that most in the legacy media do not support the Second Amendment; at least, not a proper interpretation of what that amendment actually protects.

If the “centrists” of the party are all in for eviscerating a keystone right and ignoring the crystal clear mandate of “shall not be infringed,” you know what those pulling sentiment in that direction intend to end up with. That also allows those previously considered “moderate” to now be smeared as “extremists,” with accusations of being haters not far behind.

It’s a rather strange claim of the American far left that their interests are opposed to that of corporate America, because there’s virtually no evidence to support it. Quite the contrary: During the wave of Black Lives Matter rioting that took place during the early summer of 2020, American corporations marched in lockstep. Not only did they use social media to swear fealty to this political movement, but they also made massive internal changes in conformity with BLM propaganda.

Facebook Fact Checker Interfering in U.S. Election, Covering for Harris’s Gun Control

One of the non-American fact-checkers that is part of the Facebook program is the Agence France-Presse (AFP). The AFP is the world’s oldest news service, but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have an anti-gun agenda. The AFP tends to fact-check articles about guns and gun laws, and have quickly gained a reputation of marking post about Second Amendment as false even though they are decidedly accurate. It could be that the foreign press agency doesn’t understand firearms, or that they have ulterior motives.

New York City: On The Verge Of Meltdown

Nonetheless, Anti-Second Amendment groups and other Radical Left and Progressive political groups proclaim endlessly and vociferously, but erroneously, that the U.S. suffers from a brutally high violent crime rate and that this is due predominately if not exclusively to the notion of too many firearms in the hands of too many people. The conclusion is false. It is predicated on a calculated and deliberate failure of anti-Second Amendment groups to consider critical factors, such as population size and population density in urban areas, the diversity of the ethnic and racial makeup of the population, and lax enforcement of criminal laws, which has grown noticeably ever more lax in recent weeks.

New York Attorney General Letitia James declared her intention to tear down the NRA years ago, even before her election as AG, and she’s finally making good on the threat. The AG’s office filed suit against the Association, claiming that executives and leaders in the NRA had grossly abused their positions, and misappropriated some $64 million dollars from NRA funds. Her remedy for the corruption and malfeasance is to dissolve the Association and dole out its assets among other charitable organizations within the state of New York.

The Nationwide Poll We Believe – You Must Protect Yourself

We came out of this poll wiser than we went in. Millions of new gun owners found out how expensive and inconvenient the government made it to be an honest gun owner. Their personal experience contradicts what the news media and Democrat politicians said. The Democrat national convention is running as I write this, and the Democrat party platform is strongly biased against honest gun owners. Both the presumed Democrat presidential candidate and the vice-presidential candidate have come out for mandatory gun confiscation. How will that play with these new gun owners, particularly the many minority women living in our inner cities?

It should be noted, as Breitbart News reported, Harris never really has discussed the details about how she would use executive authority as president to ‘get assault weapons’ off the streets and out of our hands. -- But based on the Constitution, which plainly states the right to be armed “shall not be infringed,” it seems pretty clear whatever she would try to do wouldn’t be legal. -- Still, she will try.

Kamala Harris Choice Creates Most Anti-Gun Presidential Ticket in History

Between presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s calls for firearm confiscation and the draft Democratic Party Platform, the 2020 Democratic ticket was already shaping up to be the most anti-Second Amendment in history.

Joe Biden on Gun Control: Understanding Biden's 2020 Platform and the Second Amendment

There has also been a significant increase in the number of Americans obtaining their concealed carry weapons permit and packing on a daily basis. Forbes magazine estimates that 20 million Americans are now carrying as part of their everyday life.

The flipside of this is that Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign has been perhaps the most radically anti-Second Amendment campaign on record. Former Vice President Biden is very proud of his role in spiriting the 1994 gun ban into passage. If he’s elected, we will see an expansion of the power of the federal government and attacks on the rights of Americans that will not be restricted to the ownership of firearms. As president, Biden would resume the Obama-era attacks on the suburbs ended by President Trump, give citizenship (and voting rights) to nearly 30 million illegal aliens and use the Federal Reserve to address a “racial wealth gap.”

Alarming Poll: Majority of Voters Think Biden’s VP Will Assume Office

Biden has made no secret of his hostility toward the Second Amendment. Neither has Harris.

SURGING GUN SALES TRIGGERS SECOND AMMO SHORTAGE OF THIS YEAR

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
The virus pandemic triggered a socio-economic bomb across major US metro areas resulting in one of the largest panic hoardings of guns and ammo by fearful consumers in quite some time, if not ever.

Gregory Ionadi, 75, the owner of gun shop Smoke N' Guns, located in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, told PJ Media:

"Prior to the COVID outbreak, President Obama was the best gun salesman we ever had," said Ionadi. "Anytime he was going to ban this, ban that, there was a rush on gun sales. When President Trump was elected, the fear of a gun ban subsided, and sales were so flat that several gun manufacturers went out of business."

Ionadi said sales at his gun shop erupted during the pandemic. He said he made more gun and ammo sales from March to April than what was done in the last three years, calling the period absolutely "crazy."

He said once the social unrest spread across the country by late May into early summer, the second round of panic buying occurred.

Kamala Harris Proposes Executive Orders on Gun Control

Senator Kamala Harris of California, the former prosecutor who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, on Monday committed to a host of executive actions to implement gun control measures that have long failed to pass in Congress.

At a town hall hosted by CNN, Ms. Harris said that, if elected, she would sign an executive order mandating background checks for customers of any firearms dealer who sells more than five guns a year. The executive actions would also include more stringent regulation of gun manufacturers that could result in revoked licenses or prosecution, as well as an attempt to close the loophole that allows some domestic abusers to purchase guns if their victim is an unwedded partner…

Biden Naming Harris as VP Pick Poses Special Threat for Gun Owners

As usual, “gun owner” Harris is not “anti-gun,” as long as she and her allies control them. Showing the obligatory elitist hypocrisy gun-grabbing politicos reserve for themselves, she has made full use of taxpayer-funded armed police protection, even in situations where the deployment of municipal resources for state officials has been deemed “unprecedented.” Now that she’s on Biden’s ticket, the Secret Service will be keeping her protected while she works to undermine the ability of all Americans to protect themselves.

Debate This!

Biden’s image makers know the less the public sees and hears Biden, the better. Biden’s surrogates, a host of handlers, and a sympathetic, seditious Press have constructed a false image of Biden. It is a fragile image easily undercut through public appearances and shattered by a one-to-one match-up with Trump. This is precisely why the Press, along with Biden’s handlers, support early voting and why they seek to delay a Presidential debate. -- The forces driving Biden’s White-House bid must rely on deception. That raises the question whether the upcoming November 2020 Presidential election will be reasonable, fair, impartial, transparent, and honest.

FPC Brief: Background Checks for Ammo Violate Second Amendment

In 2016, California enacted a series of regulations on ammunition sales. Ammunition sales must now be conducted by a licensed ammunition vendor, occur face-to-face at the vendor’s California location, and be approved by the California Department of Justice. DOJ approval requires a background check on the purchaser, for every ammunition purchase. Making matters worse, the background check system denies 16% of lawful purchases due to deficiencies in the system. In the first few months of its enactment, over 100,000 lawful acquisitions were refused, and countless others were deterred by the system’s complexity.

The Supreme Court removed many checks and balances when they gave prosecutors absolute immunity. The left is using that power against the democratic system. They don’t have a further plan. -- Their plan has devolved into one goal: tear down the system.

The Government Cannot Protect You! You Must Protect Yourself!

New York City’s tiered handgun licensing scheme is not only inconsistent with the Second Amendment, it promotes unlawful discrimination under the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment and invites both abuse by and corruption in the City’s Licensing Division. In fact, the City’s insufferable and puzzling handgun licensing scheme is, from a purely logical standpoint, apart from a legal standpoint, internally inconsistent and incoherent.

Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act

Anti-Second Amendment extremists are seeking to find ways to use administrative actions to attack our rights.

McCloskey Case: St Louis Police Detective Refused to Sign Prosecutor's Biased Probable Cause Statement

The DNC Platform Goal is to End the Firearm Industry

The platform wasn’t the product of Biden’s thinking, but those propping him up. They’re ramming through a radical agenda to disarm law-abiding Americans when they’re buying firearms in record numbers over concerns of personal safety. This is a platform that is far beyond being out of step with America. It’s tripping over itself.

“2020 Gun Salesperson of the Year” Award Goes to… The Democrats! (VIDEOS)

When gun-lies just won’t bring the results these gun-grabbing freedom-haters want, they use “racism.” Are you surprised? The problem they are having by using black Americans as a tool to push for gun-control and racial divide is the same problem they have when using violence to garner support for gun-control. Logical thinking people see the hypocrisy and recognize that the left-wing solutions are actually the problem. -- Violence, hatred, and destruction of private property is a hard sell, but it’s all the Democrats have.

Did St. Louis Couple Bluff Trespassers with Inoperable Guns? Why it Matters

The fact that crime lab personnel carefully documented the pistol was inoperative when they examined it, and someone anonymously leaked the document to the press, showing the lab had found the pistol to be inoperative, indicates people did not want to be seen as altering evidence, or as being part of a conspiracy to obstruct justice. -- Prosecutors have enormous power, created for them by the Supreme Court in 1983, when they were given absolute immunity from lawsuit. --
Perhaps it is time that absolute immunity for prosecutors be re-examined.

Below the Radar: House Resolution 1013 (H.Res.1013)

It simply states that it is the “sense of the House of Representatives” that any jurisdiction that cuts police budgets or which shuts down police departments should not be adding “undue restrictions” on the right to keep and bear arms, and in fact should remove them. What are “undue restrictions?” Fulcher points to the Heller and McDonald rulings in the resolution, and this is where a floor vote on this resolution would put anti-Second Amendment extremists in a tough spot.

Below The Radar: Background Check Completion Act of 2020

In Blumenthal’s mind it's all okay... Because to him, gun ownership isn’t a right – it’s a privilege that should be determined by the government. Second Amendment supporters should contact their Senators and Representative and urge them to oppose S 4068.

Below The Radar: Help Empower Americans To Respond Act

As NYC Crime Rates Skyrocket, de Blasio and Shea target “Gun Violence”

As Second Amendment supporters have organized and pushed back against the propaganda, the number of gun “buy-backs” has dwindled. They are now a rare occurrence, seldom happening outside the few states where private sales of guns are banned. -- In most states, when a “buy back” is organized, private purchasers show up to buy the best guns from willing sellers. Instead of having the guns being destroyed, they are placed with responsible owners. This destroys the propaganda message of “Guns Bad. Turn them in to Police”.

Your Rights Come Before Politics

The right to bear arms and the right to petition the government work best when they work together, but time is short. Criminals and rioters won’t wait for permits. This is where my theoretical story crashes into hard reality. The deputy at the sheriff’s office says you can submit your concealed carry application and schedules your appointment... EIGHT MONTHS from now... (By law, the sheriff is required to process your application in 45 days.)

Another Armed Samaritan Stops Active Murderer In Indiana

This is another instance of an active murderer being stopped by an armed Samaritan. -- It does not appear to have gathered national attention. Why isn't it as much news as when a police officer shoots a person who was resisting arrest? -- That is a rhetorical question. It isn't national news because it does not fit the anti-Second Amendment narrative of guns being useless for defense of self and others.

Denial of Free Speech and Disarming the American Citizenry

The Deadly Threat To Our Nation Is Not The Coronavirus But The Corruption In The Body Politic. -- The concern of our founders was directed to preventing a strong, centralized Federal Government from usurping power that rightfully belongs to the American people. They felt that, apart from a three Branch Government, wielding distinct and limited powers, the free Speech clause within the First Amendment and the right of the people to keep and bear arms clause in the Second, would be the principal fail-safe mechanism through which we would be able to maintain their authority over Government, if the threat of tyranny should arise.
