Dan Crenshaw whines Dems tricked him, voted for Military NDAA Red Flag Law

 

The NDAA. It’s an enormous piece of legislation that Crenshaw didn’t take the time to read. This after he previously puts out a YouTuber on what the NDAA bill is all about.  Now he says he was tricked.  “You gotta read the damn thing Danny boy” so says Rob over at Weasel Zippers. It seems Dan has forgotten rule #1 after becoming a member of Congress.  
Rule #1. The Democrats are not your friend. They will lie to you. Maybe he could spend more time on the job than being a media sensation.

The military court protective order provision, buried deep in HR 4350, is another example of the “red flag law” gun control measures sweeping the country. Rep. Speier said she introduced the language to help curb the skyrocketing suicide rates among active military personnel. Gun rights advocates don’t buy it and point to a slippery slope that has the potential to compromise the Fifth Amendment right that no one shall be “deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.”   

Gun Owners of America, a prominent gun-rights advocacy organization, said the language of the bill passed by the House creates a military court gun confiscation program, and that it represents a clear, “disgusting violation of the Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights of our armed service personnel who offer their lives to defend those same constitutional rights every day. 

“Seizing firearms first and ‘getting the Due Process later’ will never constitute sufficient Due Process, no matter how much anti-gunners may pretend it does.”

However, the fight is not over. The U.S. Senate has yet to consider their version of the NDAA, and both chambers will need to iron out any differences between their respective bills before it becomes law. NRA-ILA says it will continue to fight against the inclusion of these anti-gun provisions in the final bill.

Biden rolls out initial gun control measures

Looks like a lot of smoke and mirrors regarding Biden and his gun control nonsense. Ghost guns are already illegal since forever. More noise to try and amp us up. Though we best keep our eye on David Chipman who they plan as ATF Director.

The Biden White House has released a preview of President Joe Biden’s executive actions on gun control, which he plans to sign Thursday afternoon. The administration is also arguing additional gun control is needed to fight a “public health” crisis and pushing hard for “red flag laws,” which often violate civil liberties.

“Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing six initial actions to address the gun violence public health epidemic,” the White House released late Wednesday. “This Administration will not wait for Congress to act to take its own steps.”

Here are the six actions, from the White House “fact sheet.”

The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states.

The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions.

The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.

The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

Biden’s choice for ATF Director, David Chipman, is a longtime gun control activist who has done extensive lobbying for anti-Second Amendment groups funded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Giffords Law Center. He was also involved in the Branch Davidian trial after the government — specifically ATF and FBI — botched a raid in Waco, Texas. Bad decisions made by federal agents ultimately resulted in the deaths of 76 people, including pregnant women and dozens of children.

Biden Argues Supreme Court Case Lets Cops Enter Homes And Seize Guns Without A Warrant

As the gun control issue comes barreling down the congressional chute big time, a number of cases are winding their way toward the supremes. This one has a ring that is particularly disturbing and worth keeping track on its progress. I have thought that the easiest route to overcome the obstacles caused by the Second Amendment was the mental health route. Here is one worthy of attention:

The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday will hear oral argument in Caniglia v. Strom, a case that could have sweeping consequences for policing, due process, and mental health, with the Biden Administration and attorneys general from nine states urging the High Court to uphold warrantless gun confiscation

Critically, when police seized the guns, they didn’t claim it was an emergency or to prevent imminent danger. Instead, the officers argued their actions were a form of “community caretaking,” a narrow exception to the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement.

First created by the Supreme Court nearly 50 years ago, the community caretaking exception was designed for cases involving impounded cars and highway safety, on the grounds that police are often called to car accidents to remove nuisances like inoperable vehicles on public roads. 

Both a district and appellate court upheld the seizures as “reasonable” under the community caretaking exception. In deciding Caniglia’s case, the First Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals acknowledged that “the doctrine’s reach outside the motor vehicle context is ill-defined.” Nevertheless, the court decided to extend that doctrine to cover private homes, ruling that the officers “did not exceed the proper province of their community caretaking responsibilities.”

Michael Bloomberg the so-called centrist?

 

The MSM was quick to herald the news that there was an excellent chance Michael Bloomberg was going to put his hat in the ring. Yes, someone more centrist. He looked at the field and so he “had a lane.” Lane? What lane. He is as wacko left as the rest of them. A couple of tweets out there really tells us all we need to know. Let’s look at China and guns as a starting point. Rest easy folks.

 

The Second Amendment and his understanding of guns…. “Give Bambi a chance.” Something like that.

 

Need a refresher on Biden? “China not bad folks.”

Joe Biden, the gift that keeps on giving if the media would only report his positions. Robert Gates spelled it out in his memoir written a few years ago, “I think he (Biden) has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” It looks like Joe is still fumbling along.

 

Yes, all is well in the swamp.

Gun control and the Democrats destruction of wildlife conservation

 

 

What Progressives and Democratic Presidential candidates in particular are not aware is that the bulk of wildlife conservation funding comes from the sale of firearms and ammunition in the form of an excise tax.  Add to that the sale of hunting licenses as a revenue producer. Here we go:

Almost $1 billion each year goes to state wildlife and natural resource agencies courtesy of checks written by firearms, ammunition, and related manufacturers. It is the result of an 11 percent excise tax on firearms, ammunition, and related goods known as Pittman-Robertson, or the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937.

The act was originally proposed by the firearms industry and supported by conservation groups like the National Wildlife Federation. It was bipartisan. It allowed states to marshal resources needed to recover dwindling populations of animals like white tail deer, elk, turkeys, and others. Because much of the success benefited hunters, there is a false assumption: they “pay the bill” in generating the tax. While it was mostly true in 1937, now it’s mostly not.

…What they don’t understand are the demographics of today’s gun ownership. Even as hunting‘s popularity is slowly declining, sport and practical shooting are way up. By sheer numbers, more people in America are shooting now than ever, although less are hunting.

Even more telling, half of all firearms purchased are handguns. These are primarily semiautomatics, also identified as “assault weapons” in misguided legislation. Ammunition purchased to use in these guns lines up in similar fashion.

Democrats don’t want ICE notified when illegals try and buy a gun

 

Oh this should work out swell. Not enough that it’s open border time. Let’s be sure and give them a bonus card for being too stupid to try and sign up for a gun. By the way, I wonder just why our newly minted illegals would want a gun? Any ideas folks?

 

As the debate over illegal immigration continues to rage, Democrats continue to prove they are proponents of open borders and lawlessness.

The latest example comes from Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, who is berating Democrats for protecting illegal aliens who attempt to purchase firearms and fail a background check.

From Gaetz Tweet:

Democrats in the Judiciary Committee just voted against notifying ICE when an illegal alien fails a background check to buy a gun. They hate ICE so much that they’d keep ICE in the dark when illegals try to get guns!

 

Town Hall

The FBI this year has barred a record number of cases of illegal immigrants from buying guns, according to a new report of background checks.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System listed 7,836,600 “illegal/unlawful alien” as of 2018.

That number has been increasing in recent years.

Illegal immigrants rank at the top of those on the FBI’s “prohibited category.”

Under 10 percent of “March for our Lives” were under 18

 

So the usual suspects no doubt were involved with the so-called “march” in D.C. on Saturday. Less than 10 percent were under 18.  But no matter, once again, the siren call for our guns begins again. Now ammunition is under attack. Thanks to dear Wasserman-Schultz. No discussion of the failures of the government. The School, the Sheriff. I’ll add a few words from the NRA:

 

A sociologist on MSNBC threw cold water on all the media’s claims that the March For Our Lives protests were spontaneous and led by the nation’s children during a “Morning Joe” segment on Monday.

While Fisher tried to make it sound like these individuals were all potential voters, it is likely that many of those who showed up were simply run-of-the-mill liberal activists.

University of Maryland sociologist Dana Fisher conducted a study of the demographics of Saturday’s march in Washington, D.C., and discovered that only less than 10 percent of those in the crowd were under the age of 18.

The study was done by going through the crowds with tablets and conducting surveys of participants and then extrapolating trends from the data collected, according to Fisher.

More guns = more gun homicides? Nope.

Put this down as the chart of the day. When the left spins their tale, give them a copy of this.

Here in Brazil we have total and absolute prohibition of all kinds of guns. Last year we had 70.000 murders This year we expect around 80k

 

FBI Director Comey – Just who is he?

Yesterday I had my tin foil out in fine style and suggested that the FBI use of informants particularly in terrorism cases was often not what it appeared in the post Was the Orlando terrorist Mateen an FBI informant?

Setting aside my screed, let me offer another point of view of FBI director Comey who almost universally is depicted as a white hat in shining armor, at this very moment holding the future of the Democrat party in his hands. We are apparently in the process of giving up due process in order to achieve a modicum of gun control. The new NDAA is soon up for a vote. Just who will be looking over our shoulder?Just who is FBI Director Comfey?James B. Comey, new F.B.I. nominee is not what you think 

What you will not hear from the Obama-friendly media, and our somnolent members of Congress, is this: Not only was the Patriot Act expanded under the supervision of Comey, Mueller and Ashcroft, when Comey left the AG’s office in 2005 he went to work as the top lawyer for…wait for it…”Big Brother” himself – Lockheed Martin.

As the Chief Legal Officer at Lockheed Martin, James Comey earned a total compensation of $6,113,797.00 in 2009. That’s right. Six million bucks. In one year.

When most people hear Lockheed Martin they think military contracts. Well, welcome to 1984. “Big Brother” is another name for Lockheed Martin, and security and surveillance is their game. They’ve been working closely with the National Security Agency (AKA: NSA, as in No Such Agency) for many years.

So ask yourself: Why would the Obama regime appoint a new FBI Director who works for a prime contractor that sells NSA the technology to spy on Americans? Would PETA hire a fur coat distributor?

Oh, by the way, where’s John Ashcroft today? Why he’s on the Board of Directors of Blackwater USA,which now goes by the harmless sounding name – Academi – conjuring up images of ivy-covered buildings and lounging intellectuals.

So in the days ahead, when the media and politicians tell you that James B. Comey will stand up for your civil liberties as FBI Director (citing a hospital room performance over the Patriot Act), remember: If Comey didn’t support spying on Americans, why would he work for a leading company that sells the government the tools to spy on Americans?

Are the manufacturers of hunting rifles against hunting?

Comey and Ashcroft – Lockheed Martin and Blackwater: Defenders of our civil liberties?

And just to round out what the FBI is about, let’s hear from the previous director.

FBI Director: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil January 26, 2013

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.
Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.
“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”
“I’m going to defer.

Obama wants to take your guns if you visit the wrong websites

When scouting out the internet, best not to have a fat finger and hit the wrong website. Fortunately, Obama will be gone in a few months. Just in time. First we had shelter in place. Americans apparently will willingly huddle in their homes. Now the next effort will be to restrict one’s gun rights if one visits the wrong website. Is this really where we want to go? Both sound like this is good for us doesn’t it? By the way, Mr. President, the reason that we are buying guns like crazy is because we know you want our guns.

President Obama suggested the equivalent of a no-fly list for guns on Wednesday, saying that people who are suspected of being terrorist sympathizers should be denied the right to bear arms even if they are not convicted or accused of a crime.

“We’ve got people who we know have been on ISIL websites living here in the United States, U.S. citizens,” Obama said during a PBS NewsHour appearance, using an acronym for the Islamic State terror group. “And we’re allowed to put them on the no-fly list when it comes to airlines, but because of the National Rifle Association I cannot prohibit them from buying a gun.”

When asked why he wants to restrict gun access for all owners, rather than just bad actors, President Barack Obama said, “It’s just not true. …There have been more guns sold since I’ve been president than just about any time in U.S. history.”

He spoke at a town hall in Elkhart, Indiana, in June. President Barack Obama’s statement came in response to an audience member who asked why he supported policies to restrict firearm access for law-abiding citizens.

“Why then do you and Hillary want to control and restrict and limit gun manufacturers, gun owners, and the responsible use of guns and ammunition to the rest of us, the good guys, instead of holding the bad guys responsible for their actions?” the man asked.

The man pointed out that Chicago, Obama’s former home town, has some of the highest levels of gun violence in the nation despite its stringent gun laws.
