Two mass shootings last weekend in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, have communist gun grabbers once again frothing at the mouth for more gun control—including an outright ban of all semi-automatic rifles. They erroneously call these rifles “assault weapons” to make the guns sound really, really bad. They are NOT assault weapons, and anyone who knows anything about guns knows it. But that doesn’t matter to the gun grabbers. Their goal is to confiscate ALL guns, not just semi-automatics, so the terms they use don’t matter one iota.
You need to understand that communist gun grabbers will never stop demanding more gun control until they have completely banned and confiscated every gun in America—which will NEVER happen without murdering up to a third of the American population who own firearms and who will die fighting any government agency that tries to take those guns away from them.
But to be honest, I don’t worry too much about Democrat gun grabbers. Almost everyone who cherishes our Second Amendment knows that most Democrats are vehemently opposed to our right to keep and bear arms, and they are prepared to offer fierce political resistance against any attempt by Democrats to take our guns. No! The real enemy are Republicans—especially President Donald Trump, because conservatives think Trump truly believes in the Second Amendment and will fiercely defend it. They are wrong.
The story of the shootings in Texas and Ohio had barely been reported, and Donald Trump was on the air pushing Congress for a national “red flag” gun confiscation law. Conservative Review reports:
Following two mass killings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend, President Donald Trump called for gun control in a statement from the White House Monday morning, in the form of expanded background checks and “red flag” gun confiscation laws.
In discussing how to respond on a policy level later in the address, the president voiced his support for so-called “red flag” laws, which empower judges to take people’s guns away by court order if the person is deemed to be a “grave risk to public safety.”
“We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process,” Trump said. “That is why I have called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders.”
While the impulse to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people is an understandable one, the devil is always in the details. Not all so-called “red flag” laws are created equal, and they can often be nightmares for due process rights.
Taking Second Amendment rights away from people for non-criminal reasons is already on the books. Someone who has been adjudicated “as a mental defective” or involuntarily committed to a mental institution can’t buy a gun.
But again, due process is key.
As Independent Institute Research Director Dave Kopel explained to Congress back in March, while some state laws stipulate that only law enforcement can bring a red flag petition to a judge, newer versions allow petitions to be brought by “spurned dating partners or relationships from long ago.”
Another problem with some so-called red flag laws is that they allow confiscation orders to be issued ex parte, meaning that they can be issued when a judge only hears one side of the story and the target of the petition is not permitted to defend himself.
Joining Trump are several gun-grabbing Republican senators such as Lindsey Graham (SC), Marco Rubio (FL) and Susan Collins (ME).
I have spent considerable time and space speaking and writing about the danger of “red flag” gun confiscation laws. I tell you dogmatically and emphatically that “red flag” gun confiscation laws are the most serious assault against our Second Amendment since King George sent troops to confiscate the arms of our colonist forebears at Lexington and Concord. And, yes, I’m telling you straight out that by pushing these “red flag” gun confiscation laws, Donald Trump is as much a tyrant as was King George.
I strongly urge readers to read my column, My Open Letter To Senators Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Et Al., regarding “red flag” gun confiscation laws.
And here is my video, An Open Letter To Our Legislators, Judges and Lawmen, regarding “red flag” gun confiscation laws.
Please share the written column and video above to everyone you can. Nothing is more jeopardous right now to the preservation of freedom than these infernal “red flag” gun confiscation laws. NOTHING!
But Trump is proposing even more assaults against our liberties. The Hill has the story:
President Trump on Monday called for the Department of Justice (DOJ) to work closely with social media companies to identify potential mass shooters in remarks that largely focused on how technology can enable real-world violence.
During a speech in which the president condemned white supremacy and hatred following two mass shootings this weekend in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump said the internet plays an important role in radicalizing mass shooters.
"We must shine light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start," he said. "The perils of the internet and social media cannot be ignored and they will not be ignored."
He announced that he is directing the Justice Department "to work in partnership with local, state and federal agencies as well as social media companies to develop tools that can detect mass shooters before they strike."
Oh! This is just what we need: police agencies working in concert with the ADL, SPLC, Facebook and Twitter to determine who is and who is not an “extremist,” “white supremacist,” “antisemitic” or potential mass killer. What could possibly go wrong with that?
On the one hand Trump complains about the biased, unfair characterization about him on Facebook and Twitter and on the other hand he wants to sic these social network monsters on the rest of us—with the power of police badges and guns behind them to boot. I’m telling you: Donald Trump is a psycho.
The potential witch-hunts, false accusations, false arrests and gestapo-like gun confiscations that surely WILL come about if Trump gets his way could spell the end of America as we know it—and FAST.
Trump has also promised to enact “swift” executions for people found guilty of “hate” crimes. That should send chills up anyone’s spine. Who decides what a “hate” crime is? And how fast is “swift”? These are the words of a dictator who doesn’t have to worry about due process and our constitutional appeals process. These words are also eerily similar to the Zionist formula for the enforcement of Noahide laws that President Trump codified in a Presidential Proclamation recently.
For those who are not familiar with Noahide laws, these are Jewish laws that are enforced by decapitation and judged and administered by Jewish rabbis.
Kurt Nimmo sagaciously postulates:
The following may soon be considered the raving of a criminal conspiracy theorist radicalized in the deepest shadows of the dark web.
1. I don’t believe in coincidences. The appearance of several “manifestos” basically touting the same version of “white supremacy” prior to deadly mass shootings shouldn’t be considered a fluke, nor an orchestrated plot by the followers of Anders Breivik, who compared himself to Vidkun Quisling, the Nazi stand-in during the occupation of Norway.
2. There is no logical political point to be made by killing innocent people. Mass murder certainly won’t rally the people to your ideology, so we’re expected to believe these accused killers are simply nihilists radicalized online and engaged in terror attacks driven by a visceral, illogical, and violent race-based impulse.
3. I have no evidence these mass shootings are orchestrated by the state and its intelligence agencies. However, as a student of history, I can tell you that what is now unfolding has precedent on several levels—from the FBI taking over KKK klaverns in the 1960s during COINTELPRO to a number of purported racists working as informants (the most notable being Hal Turner). The same can be said for the violent left, most notoriously the Weather Underground and the Symbionese Liberation Army, the latter making itself headline material by kidnapping the granddaughter of propaganda specialist William Randolph Hearst. I believe these are orchestrated events similar to NATO’s Operation Gladio operations in Europe (specifically the Red Brigades).
4. Manchurian candidates? It is entirely possible. The CIA has worked on this since the 1950s (see this document). There are glaring anomalies in the assassination of Robert Kennedy (Sirhan Sirhan claimed he was hypnotized), Martin Luther King (his family insists the government killed the civil rights leader), and John Lennon (see my video here). Timothy McVeigh claimed the military implanted a microchip in his backside (although the media laughed this one off, there is evidence the military has experimented with chip implants; no autopsy was performed on the convicted bomber of the Oklahoma City federal building, so we will never know for sure). Then there is the Monarch program (the continuous use of so-called trauma-based programming techniques; reading this document will get you pegged as a domestic terrorist by our NSA overseers).
5. In the weeks ahead, there will be a demand by Congress to crack down on “hatred,” that is to say information that does not follow the establishment agenda. Now that we are inching closer to conflating nonviolent “anti-government” activity with domestic race-based terrorism, it should be expected the current effort to de-platform critics and activists from social media will move into hyperdrive. I expect the user-board website 8chan and other alternative platforms such as Gab (where shooter Robert Bowers reportedly posted) to be taken down.
6. The Second Amendment will be further chipped away and “military-style” firearms will be outlawed, possibly even confiscated, although this will most definitely prove to be problematic with more than 393 million civilian-owned firearms in the United States.
Speaking of Manchurian candidates, have you seen this newscast? This is the most bizarre 15 seconds of video I have ever seen. In the video, a local FOX newscaster appears to report a mass shooting BEFORE IT HAPPENED. Was there supposed to be a third mass shooting last weekend that news stations had already been made privy to, but after this newscaster accidentally announced the next shooting ahead of time, it was aborted? As I said, this is absolutely bazaar. Watch it, and make up your own mind.
I am on record as saying that I believe that the vast majority of mass shootings are masterminded by government Dark Ops. The Deep State that controls these Dark Operations is maniacally determined to disarm the people of the United States AT ALL COSTS. In almost every mass shooting, there are many eyewitnesses who say they saw more than one shooter. This was again true in El Paso.
Steven Ben-Nun at Israeli News Live reports that several eyewitnesses to the El Paso shootings saw at least 3 or maybe 4 shooters—all dressed in black—open fire on people in that Walmart store.
But you will never hear from these eyewitnesses again. The Deep State owns the media, and they will never allow the truth to come out. They are using these shootings to try and force the American people to accept gun confiscation in the name of “protecting” America. Of course, the Deep State also owns The Three (Zionist) Stooges: Donald Trump, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham who will soon implement these draconian gun confiscation laws, if conservatives do not get out of the fog that they can sit back and trust Trump and the GOP to defend their Second Amendment liberties. They can’t! And if they don’t wake up to that reality FAST, it will be too late for all of us.
America’s Founding Fathers made it clear that the Second Amendment is our protection.
Think of this, too: 22 people were killed in the El Paso shootings, and 9 people were killed in the Dayton shootings. And that makes Trump push gun confiscation laws? What about the killings that take place in Chicago EVERY WEEK? Through the end of July, Chicago has had 282 homicides. 40 people were shot and killed in July alone. Over the Independence Day weekend, 68 people were shot and 5 died. In ONE weekend. (Source)
Chicago, of course, has some of the most rigid gun control laws in the country. Chicago even falls under the State of Illinois’ “red flag” gun confiscation law. The killings in El Paso and Dayton don’t even equal 3 weekends of murders in Chicago. The strict gun control laws (including a “red flag” gun confiscation law) in Chicago and the State of Illinois do nothing except enable criminals to more easily prey upon their unsuspecting victims.
Yet Trump is using the murders in El Paso and Dayton as an excuse to confiscate the firearms from people nationwide who have never committed a crime or have never even threatened to commit a crime and to turn Facebook and Twitter (with the assistance of the ADL and SPLC) into police psychics who can rub their magic computer balls and predict who is going to be the next mass killer.
Is anybody out there paying attention?
It’s all a scam, folks! It’s a huge, Deep State, gun-grabbing scam. And Donald Trump is neck-deep in it.
Donald Trump has already enacted MORE gun control than Barack Obama, and now he wants to be the first president in American history to authorize the confiscation of the firearms of innocent Americans without even a smidgen of due process—well, the first since King George, of course.
To the American people everywhere: Your protection depends on YOU, not government. Think of it: Government does everything it can do to limit your ability to defend yourself via draconian gun control laws and ubiquitous "gun-free zones," and then when criminals (maybe including government assassins) ignore all of the laws the government has enacted and go on a shooting rampage, government's answer—Donald Trump's answer—Lindsey Graham’s answer—Marco Rubio’s answer—is to confiscate YOUR firearms, thus making YOU even more defenseless.
That’s right! If you think YOU will be exempted or immune from “red flag” gun confiscation laws, you are seriously deluded. Once national gun confiscation begins, it will not stop until all of the American people are disarmed or all of the tyrants are dead or run out of the country. There will be nothing to stop it. The only way to stop it is to stop it NOW, by letting wannabe tyrants Trump, Graham and Rubio know in no uncertain terms that these “red flag” gun confiscation laws will not be tolerated.
Instead of calling for gun confiscation and a more entrenched police state, the citizenry en masse should start taking responsibility for their own safety by being at all times fully armed and ready to defend themselves when the need arises. Americans should demand that gun-free zones be completely abolished, that our elected civil magistrates (regardless of party) stop enabling an ever-burgeoning police state, and that they get out of our way and let the American people defend themselves.
That means we Americans need to start taking our responsibility to defend ourselves seriously and never give a wannabe mass killer the opportunity to open fire on an unarmed people.
The right to keep and bear arms doesn't mean diddly-squat if the adults in this country do NOT keep and bear arms—whether it’s in a Walmart, a movie theater, a church, a mosque, a synagogue, an arts festival, a music concert, a school, a restaurant, etc., ad infinitum. If we Americans were living up to our responsibility, these mass shooters would only be attempted mass shooters, as the American people would quickly and permanently put an end to their evil machinations.
Come on, folks! Stop making it easy for mass killers—whether they are individual, murderous devils or cold, calculating government assassins. When the American people start shooting back—I mean EVERY TIME—these monsters (whoever they are) would have to quickly go back to square one and come up with another way to promote their asinine agendas.
IT’S UP TO US, FOLKS: YOU AND ME!
In the meantime, however, we better stop this gun-grabbing imbecile, Donald Trump, from implementing these “red flag” gun confiscation laws, or you and I will not have the ability to shoot back much longer, because we won’t have the freedom to keep and bear arms much longer.
