“Few of us thought it would happen in Virginia.” Michael Hammond, Gun Owners of America

On November 5, 2019, Virginia’s electorate handed the state over to Democrat Party rule, and 13 days later, State Senator Dick Saslaw introduced a bill to ban “every rifle of the common AR-15 design and a great many pistols and shotguns in common use for personal defense, target shooting, and hunting.”

SB 16, the bill Saslaw will sponsor in the 2020 legislative session, goes further than any previous American gun control law by making millions of handguns, shotguns, and semi-automatic rifles in Virginia immediately illegal, and anyone possessing one of the banned guns a felon subject to as much as five years imprisonment.

Saslaw’s bill will make it illegal for law-abiding Virginians to possess the firearms mentioned in the bill for home or business protection or for hunting or target shooting.

If Saslaw’s bill is enacted, Virginia gun owners will be required to surrender the firearms mentioned in the bill to law enforcement, or law enforcement officers will seize the firearms whenever and wherever they are located.

Virginia’s Democrat Governor Ralph Northam said there will be consequences for law enforcement officers who refuse to enforce his Party’s new gun control legislation.

“If … law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books, then there are going to be some consequences. But I’ll cross that bridge if and when we get to it.” — Ralph Northam, Democrat Governor, Virginia

Donald McEachin, a Democrat representative from Richmond, said Northam may have to deploy the National Guard to enforce the Party’s new law.

“[T]he governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law. … I don’t know how serious these counties are and how severe the violations of law will be. But that’s obviously an option he has.” — Donald McEachin, Democrat representative, Virginia

McEachin also suggested cutting off state funds to counties that don’t comply with the Party’s new law.

Northam said that he and his Party intend to pass SB 2, a Universal Background Check bill, which could help law enforcement officers locate the Virginia gun owners who have illegal firearms.

“Under SB 2, virtually every gun purchase would have to be made through a dealer and evidenced by a Form 4473 — containing the name of the purchaser and the type of gun.

The ATF has been going around to dealers in connection with its annual inspection and recording the contents of these forms in a de facto national database. … Presto! A national gun registry of all semi-automatics!” — Michael Hammond, Gun Owners of America

It’s not a stretch to imagine that the ATF would share gun owners’ names with Democrat officials who want to know who owns illegal firearms in Virginia.

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring said that the gun lobby is trying to scare people, and the law his Party intends to pass “are laws that will make our communities and our streets safer.”

Virginia will pass universal background checks to make sure that people who are dangerous, who are criminals and who aren’t permitted to buy guns, won’t be able to buy guns. So, when Virginia passes these gun safety laws that they will be followed, they will be enforced.” — Mark Herring, Virginia Attorney General

Virginia Democrats cannot constitutionally legislate away a gun owner’s God-given individual rights to self-protection, and their SB 16 would do just that.

Leftist Democrats in Virginia are attempting to disarm Virginians through enforced gun control, and if successful other states will follow suit.

The Democrat Party intends to pass laws and implement policies to take guns from American citizens. Historically, gun confiscation has been tried before in this country.

“[I]n 1775 … Massachusetts governor, General Thomas Gage ordered British soldiers to confiscate firearms from civilians in the interest of thwarting a rebellion. The citizens, not standing for this unjust violation of their rights and safety decided to take a stand. In doing so, they set off the first battle of the Revolutionary War.”

Make no mistake, the party of Northam, Herring, and McEachin are coming for the guns, and law enforcement officers and National Guard units will be dispatched door-to-door to do what leftist regimes have done in Venezuela, Cuba, China, and other totalitarian countries.

“For many years, the Catholic bishops of the United States have been urging our leaders to explore and adopt reasonable policies to help curb gun violence. …[W]eapons designed to inflict extreme levels of bloodshed—too easily find their way into the hands of those who would wish to use them to harm others.” Roman Catholic Bishop Frank Dewane, Diocese of Venice, Florida

 

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) called for strict gun control measures on Americans owing firearms during their three-day annual General Assembly earlier this month in Baltimore, Maryland.

Although the Roman Catholic Bishops were divided over red-flag laws, handgun licensing, and a national gun registry, they whole heartedly endorsed specific congressional actions banning “assault weapons,” restricting magazine capacities, and limiting handguns.

Bishop Frank Dewane of Venice, Florida, wants “common sense measures” to defeat gun violence, and Fred Kammer, S.J. head of the Jesuit Social Research Institute at Loyola University New Orleans, wants the USCCB to partner “with other faith communities” to offset “the corrupting power of the National Rifle Association and its influence on Congress.”

Catholic bishops in the United States have long supported restrictions on gun ownership and bans on high-powered and semi-automatic weapons. For example:

In 1994, bishops supported the Clinton Administration’s assault-weapons ban (allowed to expire in 2004).

In 2000, bishops called for “sensible regulation of handguns.”

In 2015, bishops supported universal background checks, limits on high-capacity weapons and ammunition, and increases in mental health services.

In 2017, bishops pushed for legislative action on guns including a “total ban on assault weapons” and high-power weapons.

There are few overt statements from the Roman Catholic Church regarding the right of Americans to bear arms; however, the truth is the Vatican opposes private gun ownership and wants to strictly limit and eventually eliminate Americans’ God-given right to bear arms.

Pope Francis has said that gun manufacturers and gun dealers aren’t interested in the word of God and can’t be Christians because they “fabricate death, they are merchants of death and make death into a trade.”

And in their November 2000 publication, “Responsibility, Rehabilitation and Restoration: A Catholic Perspective on Crime and Criminal Justice,” the bishops stated, “we support measures that control the sale and use of firearms and make them safer — especially efforts that prevent their unsupervised use by children or anyone other than the owner — and we reiterate our call for sensible regulation of handguns.”

Obviously the Vatican promotes a double standard—protection for me but not for thee. Pope Francis and Vatican personnel are protected by the Vatican City Gendarmerie, a highly-trained and well-armed professional security staff equipped with submachine guns, which are illegal in the US without a valid permit.

Roman Catholic gun owners and patriots who disagree with the Church’s double standard and rejection of gun rights should contact the Conference of Catholic Bishops with their concerns.

“A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” ― Ted Turner, founder of CNN

Forty years ago a body of the world’s preeminent climate scientists gathered in Geneva, Switzerland, and predicted the “CO2-climate problem” aka global warming would become the world’s major environmental problem. 

Today an even larger group, over 11,000 climate scientists from around the world, issued a warning “that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency.” To solve the problem, the climate scientists not only want to dump fossil fuels, but they also want “far fewer humans on the planet.”

“[T]he world population must be stabilized—and, ideally, gradually reduced—within a framework that ensures social integrity. There are proven and effective policies that strengthen human rights while lowering fertility rates and lessening the impacts of population growth on GHG emissions and biodiversity loss. These policies make family-planning services available to all people, remove barriers to their access and achieve full gender equity, including primary and secondary education as a global norm for all, especially girls and young women” (Bongaarts and O’Neill 2018).

The topics below were discussed by Dr. Richard Day March 20, 1969, before students and health professionals at the Pittsburgh Pediatric Society. At the time, Day was National Medical Director of Planned Parenthood and Professor of Pediatrics at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

  • population control; 
  • permission to have babies; 
  • redirecting the purpose of sex – sex without reproduction and reproduction without sex; 
  • contraception universally available to all;
  • sex education and canalizing of youth as a tool of world government; 
  • tax funded abortion as population control; 
  • encouraging homosexuality; 
  • technology used for reproduction without sex; 
  • families to diminish in importance; 
  • euthanasia and the “demise pill”; 
  • limiting access to affordable medical care makes eliminating elderly easier; 
  • medicine would be tightly controlled; 
  • elimination of private doctors; 
  • new difficult to diagnose and untreatable diseases; 
  • suppressing cancer cures as a means of population control; 
  • inducing heart attacks as a form of assassination; 
  • education as a tool for accelerating the onset of puberty and evolution; 
  • blending all religions into one and eliminating the old religions; 
  • changing the Holy Bible through revisions of key words; 
  • restructuring education as a tool of indoctrination; 
  • schools as the hub of the community;
  • controlling who has access to information;  
  • having books disappear from the libraries; 
  • changing laws to promote moral and social chaos; t
  • encouraging drug abuse to create a jungle atmosphere in cities and towns; 
  • promote alcohol abuse; 
  • restrictions on travel; 
  • the need for more jails and using hospitals as jails; 
  • no more psychological or physical security; 
  • crime used to manage society; 
  • curtailment of US industrial pre-eminence; 
  • shifting populations and economies – tearing out the social roots; 
  • sports as a tool of social engineering and change; 
  • sex and violence inculcated through entertainment; 
  • travel restrictions and implanted I.D. cards; 
  • know how people respond – making them do what you want; 
  • falsified scientific research; 
  • use of terrorism; 
  • surveillance implants and televisions that watch you; 
  • making home ownership a thing of the past; and
  • implementing a totalitarian global system.

Now that these “preeminent” climate scientists have said that population control will save the planet from its “climate emergency,” the major media will make population control  America’s latest polarizing issue joining climate change, gun control, and vaccines.

“Capitalists grow wealth. Socialists redistribute wealth…. but population grows, so the Socialist population control kicks in in the form of eugenics.” ― A.E. Samaan

“Saying that Guns cause Murders is like saying Steering Wheels cause car wreck” ― Stanley Victor Paskavich, Return to Stantasyland

Thinking people know that no action is done in a vacuum, i.e., actions have consequences, and gun control is an action that has consequences. After weighing the consequences, the question becomes does gun control lead to less crime and fewer deaths?

Many Americans presuppose that gun control laws work. The problem is there’s no proof that they do. In fact, the data suggest that gun control laws don’t work.

People blame the guns, but guns aren’t doing the mass murders, mass murderers are.  Just like drunk drivers cause automobile deaths, not automobiles. Or people who text with cell phones while driving cause deaths, not cell phones.

When will the bleeding-heart lovers of humanity call for immediate legislation to limit sales of automobiles and cell phones and for universal background checks on the people who own them?

The truth is people who believe that guns are responsible for the murderous acts of people are not just being emotional, they’re being irrational.

My latest video, “Don’t Let “Em Take Your Guns” at Brighteon.com combines a series of clips highlighting the dangerous effects of Red Flag Laws, Universal Background Checks, and gun control laws on freedom loving people.

Red Flag Laws are dangerous to our liberties and freedoms. Red Flag Laws not only violate the Second Amendment and the Fourth Amendment, they also violate the Fifth Amendment, Sixth Amendment, Seventh Amendment, and Fourteenth Amendment.

Everything about Red Flag Laws is unconstitutional and ought to be resisted on all fronts. If Americans are complacent and apathetic about Red Flag Laws they will quickly lose not only their gun rights, but their due process rights as well.

Gun Owners of America is calling on President Donald Trump, Congress, and state legislatures to reject calls for gun control, including Universal Background Checks,  Assault Weapon Bans, and Red Flag Laws.

“It is frustrating to see President Donald Trump’s continued support for so-called Red Flag laws. These Red Flag laws, properly known as Gun Confiscation Orders, are incompatible with actual due process and allow for the confiscation of firearms from innocent Americans.” GOA

Stay vigilant, patriots.

Former CNN Anchor Tells Gun Grabbers to “Shut the F— Up”

By Jerry A. Kane

Former CNN anchor Lynne Russell, who worked for the cable network between 1983 and 2001, has chided gun control advocates for trying to pass laws to prevent people from defending themselves with guns.

“If you don’t want to carry, please don’t. Then, shut the f— up about it. Make your own decisions,” Russell said.

Russell and her husband, former CNN reporter Chuck de Caro, were attacked June 30 by Tomorio Watson, an armed felon who held the couple at gun point in an Albuquerque, New Mexico, Motel 6 room during an attempted armed robbery.

In the course of the commission of the crime, a shootout occurred that left Walton dead and de Caro shot three times, but Russell was not injured during the exchange of gunfire.

Russell said that having a gun “absolutely” saved their lives. Both she and de Caro have been long time advocates for gun rights.

“The discussion over the debate to own a gun is just ridiculous. As Americans we have the right to bear arms and as humans the right to protect ourselves. I’m sure that the man who shot my husband did not have a gun permit. Criminals will always have guns. The rest of us legally obtain our gun permits,” Russell said.

Russell said de Caro has had his breathing tube removed and is doing better each day, but it will be a few weeks before he is released from the hospital. Russell said de Caro is her “hero” and credits his Special Forces background and cool head for saving their lives.

“I’m so grateful to him. He literally is my hero. He saved my life. I’m grateful that he is a responsible gun owner. He’s former Special Forces. He knows how to handle himself,” Russell said.

Although the investigation is ongoing, Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Simon Drobik said that de Caro would not face charges.
