Did you bother to vote?

TN has put itself in the position that is will have TWO choices for Senate: Rino Tweedle-Dee and Democratic Tweedle Dum.  One who accepted campaign contributions from Mitt Romney (although he DID return it 30 DAYS later), supported Romney during HIS campaigns. He even worked to elect Trumps’ opposition during 2016. Yet, TN Republicans still chose him.

TN ousted proven Pro-2A State Representatives. One was ousted by an ex-teacher whose daughter was/is Lamar Amexanders Press Secretary (of course this has nothing to do with her, but I find it interesting. The family ties to ANOTHER Rino). She was elected based on her platform of teachers needing more money and the fact that her family was in dairy. Another was ousted by a multimillionaire house builder. He’s another that focused on teachers needing more pay. He also focused on job development and addiction issues. Know what neither of them focused on or even mentioned??? The Constitution of the United States. Both stated they were “Pro-2A” but seemed to shy away from discussing it.

Let’s not even talk about our Congressional choice. Campaign 100% self-funded. I apparently am in the wrong business. Again, honesty and integrity. ‘Nuff saif.

Seems that TN is losing its firm Constitutional beliefs and positions. Although…from the total numbers that voted coming in…..how many of you ACTUALLY voted?? How many actually stepped away from the keyboard and had your voice heard in the way that COUNTS?

Time for Keyboard Warriors to Unite.

While the Patriot keyboard warriors have been busy complaining about wearing masks, the Anit-2A Folks have been laser-focused on continuing the march to strip us of the right to bear arms.

Subway has now joined the ranks of those prohibiting open carry in their restaurants. EVEN WHEN IT’S LEGAL IN THE STATE. It is not enough to simply eat elsewhere folks.

Stop using your keyboard to complain on FB. Use your keyboard to complain to the corporations directly. Let your local and state representative know. Contact the developer that owns the property the shops are on and complain that they have a tenant that is prohibiting you from exercising your constitutional right.

Those who believe in the Constitution as the law of the land can no longer afford to sit on their collective diffs. Just because the NRA, TFA, GOA , etc. lobbies for gun rights doesn’t mean you stop. (In spite of the attitude some gun lobby groups have that because THEY know it all you should sit, pay your dues and be silent).

YOUR collective voice is actually more powerful. Get your friends together. have ONE write a form email that everyone can copy and paste. Flood your reps with those emails. Tell them to tell their friends and pass it on….it’s not hard folks.

Meaning of Memorial Day

This is what Memorial Day is about. Not gatherings, BBQ and beer. Not the living Veterans. It’s about those service members that didn’t return home alive. It’s about the ultimate sacrifice that was willingly made by those determined that we, and others, would be free. Take a moment to give thanks for those brave men and women. If you know a Gold Star Family, reach out to them today. Thank them. 

#Free TN Event Recap

The gathering of Patriots in Nashville Sunday, were here to celebrate Freedom & Liberty and yo get Governor Bill Lee’s attention and focus to Open Up Tennessee!
We were not at home playing Keyboard Commando, or calling the Authorities and snitching on their friends and Neighbors, but rather joined in prayerful and repentant agreement to God Almighty, to forgive us our trespasses, to provide wisdom, guidance, and healing, and to restore that which has been lost or stolen, to heal our Land in ways that honor Him!

We are also defending our Unalienable Rights and Liberties, those given by God Almighty.
We are per our Declaration of Independence, which states in part: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes. Accordingly, all experience hath shewn, that mankind is more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”

Many Americans are getting WOKE UP. Some are speaking out against the Government overreach and acts of Tyranny. #walkaway
May God Almighty bless and prosper these efforts. May he call upon the lost, that they too, might repent and turn from their wicked ways, and know Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord.

Thank you, Laura Baigert, and the Tennessee Star for ANOTHER well written News account of Liberty in action!

#FreeTN Rally Draws Attendees from Across Tennessee and Speakers on the Subject of Freedom – Tennessee Star
https://tennesseestar.com/2020/05/18/freetn-rally-draws-attendees-from-across-tennessee-and-speakers-on-the-subject-of-freedom/?unapproved=32490&moderation-hash=d3a30ec9632df3206d58a6bb63a33da0#comment-32490

The Right To Liberty

The 1st Amendment of the Constitution reads:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances”.

The 14th Amendment of the US Constitution states:

“Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws”.

In addition to the 2A, which is our focus on this website, our founding fathers had the foresight to guarantee additional rights. WE THE PEOPLE have the right to PEACEFULLY assemble to protest anything we PERCEIVE the government is doing wrong. Whether they (the elected representatives of our government), like it or not.  Whether they want us to, or not. Whether they like the message, or not. Whether the PRESS likes it or not.

TN Quarantine Protests

 

Perhaps, even more, concerning than being “told” we can NOT assemble is this:

Connecticut using drones…

This is a CLEAR violation of the 4th Amendment.  Yes, you give up CERTAIN rights when you wander out in public. Your picture being taken for one. This goes WAY beyond a simple photo. Having your Temperature, Heart Rate, and Cough monitored and documented WITHOUT Consent is a search and seizure. If having your bodily functions monitored WITHOUT your consent doesn’t violate an unreasonable seizure, I don’t know what does.

 

 

 

 

Are we being tested under the guise of “protection”? Our ELECTED Representatives are OPENLY violating our Constitutional rights and liberties. Are they testing to see how many liberties they can take from us before we PEACEFULLY start protesting? How deep of a tear will they make in our Constitution before we take a UNITED stand to stop them?

I don’t have the answers. I know the Corvid-19 virus IS real and it IS taking lives. My heart breaks for those that have lost loved ones and those sick. I also know that we can NOT continue to allow the open and overt removal of our liberties and the Constitution to continue.

The peaceful assemblies taking place are NOT large enough to send a LOUD enough message. There should be THOUSANDS of people at every rally location. Wear a MASK if you feel safer by doing so. YES, socially distance, but get OUT from behind your keyboard! Send those emails, make those phone calls, but unless you fall into a risk category you SHOULD and NEED to be out getting your objections heard.

It’s time to start taking a stand to protect YOUR Rights and Liberties. The rights of your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Once our liberties are gone, they will be GONE forever. Is that what you want? It’s time to make a choice. You either stand up, speak up and PEACEFULLY assemble or you sit behind your keyboard and become a citizen of a Socialist country.

Tyranny Has Many Faces

It began with an idea…..that a “perfect race” could be created. That they would live in a utopia. A place where everyone believed the same, was healthy and looked the same.

The plan began by eliminating the “disposable.”  The old, the disabled, those with “different” beliefs or that “looked” different than the “standard” that was wanted.  Those that were considered “mentally unstable” or with “aberrant” sexual preferences.

People were forced to stay in their homes. Forced to wear patches on their outer clothing when they ventured out to work or to the grocery that identified them as “different.” Neighbors were instructed to spy on them and report them if they left their homes. They did so. Papers were required to be able to go to and from places of business. Liberties that were previously taken for granted were stripped away….and no-one protested. IF everyone protested at THAT point, perhaps the Holocaust would have been stopped, we will never know….but people remained silent.

Quickly the forced “Home Confinement” escalated to rounding those ordered confined up and using force to remove them from their homes and places of business, leaving everything and everyone behind.  Men, women, and children. No one was safe. They were placed on railroad cars and removed. All because they were NOT what the government deemed as “desired.”

Holocaust Memories

I could NEVER understand how approximately 6 million Jews and 5 million elderly, disabled, homosexual, and those of “non-preferred” religions were killed without protest. How did everyone people go from friends to enemies? How did they rationalize that deliberately turning their “friends” and neighbors over to the Nazis was the right thing to do? These were not strangers. These were people that they had socialized with. Attended weddings and funerals with. Worked with and watched their children play together. How did they develop the mindset that it was the RIGHT thing to do? That it was OK? That these people didn’t deserve the same freedoms that they enjoyed? That they were less than human and in fact, didn’t deserve to live?

 Numbers Killed During Holocaust

Those questions and the question of WHY people allowed their liberties to be stripped from them have haunted me since I first started learning about the Holocaust in school in the early 1970s.


Then, in 1998 a Constitution was re-written. It was written to now include,  free government-provided health care, college, and “social justice”. Things that appealed to those who wanted “free” and punishment for those that didn’t agree with THEIR points of view and positions. Then, in 2004 the Supreme Court was “stacked.” 12 new Justices were appointed to “support” the new President’s views. Then, in 2006 private properties were seized, media outlets, grocery stores, and banks were ALL nationalized. Prices were set on groceries by the government, rules regarding how much money you could withdraw were made and oil and gas prices were established. Not only prices were fixed, but mandates stating WHAT you could purchase, how much and how often were also created. Soon, there were long lines for food and medicine that became exorbitantly expensive as supplies rapidly declined. People who tried to protest were rounded up and imprisoned for speaking against the government. Now, people dig in trash hoping to find food to feed their families. This Country went from being the 10th richest in the world to being amongst the poorest. Welcome to Venezuela in 2020.

Another face of Tyranny


I am watching the BLATANT violation of our Constitutional Rights occur daily…..and I watch YOU do nothing. I watch Officers of the Law openly violate their oaths of office by ticketing those who dare assemble to worship.

Ticketing Worshippers

I watch them enforcing curfews on law-abiding citizens who have done NOTHING….other than stay healthy…..and I watch YOU do nothing. I see you remain silent. Safe in your homes ignoring our liberties being stripped away as you sit, eat popcorn watching NetFlix and typing on Facebook. I see what you write on Facebook. Condemning those who venture out, daring to jeopardize YOUR health. I see your comments applauding a Governors’ decision to stop Sunday worship and make it illegal to attend services. Even when worshipers are sitting securely in their cars in parking lots. Clearly practicing “social distancing” and remaining apart from others.

Yet, I see YOU  venturing out to Home Depot, Target and Walmart. Not wearing a mask and hoarding toilet paper. Apparently, YOUR liberties are more important than your previous friends and neighbors. I see your posts applauding the government’s decision to enforce home confinement and announce phone numbers in which to report violators.

Phone Number to Report Violators

I see the posts on Facebook of people being required to carry “papers” which then “allow” them to travel to and from work.  I see copies of a letter left on a windshield notifying people that they have been “reported” for violating house confinement….and I see YOU remain silent except to applaud.

News Report Video on Forced Removal During Virus

I watch you as you not only remain silent while all this happens, but I watch you follow blindly like sheep what is being mandated. You are being an active participant in HELPING our Liberties be destroyed. Where was your outrage when the Democrats voiced determination to “stack” the Supreme Court IF they win the election in November?

Are you so FEARFUL that you are willing to become a prisoner? Do you not realize you already have ALLOWED yourself to become one? DO you NOT see the parallels? DO you NOT see that the EXACT same tactics we are seeing used for our “protection” have been used by other governments that were tyrannical with horrendous outcomes? I’m NOT saying we’re headed into a Holocaust. However, I AM saying we are seeing the EXACT same loss of liberties. House confinement. Controlled movement. Gatherings, EVEN FOR WORSHIP, eliminated. After all, where people congregate discussion occurs and dissent organizes.

There is NO reason folks can’t go out wearing masks and using hand sanitizer. Practice social distancing and carry on with their lives. There is a
difference between common sense and tyranny. We have crossed that line.

FIND YOUR VOICE. FIND YOUR COURAGE. FIND YOUR STRENGTH. USE THEM ALL before it’s too late. READ THE BILL OF RIGHTS. Once Liberties are gone…THEY ARE GONE. NOW is the time to PEACEFULLY Protest.  Contact our Representatives. ALL of them. ALL our State Representatives. ALL our National Representatives. It’s past the point of simply contacting YOUR specific Representatives. There are plenty of programs out there that will mass send an email for you to ALL of them.  It’s time to start fighting to ensure our liberties are preserved. Before it’s too late.

 

Fiction Or Possibility?

It started when I was a child. I was too young to be caught up in the why’s.  All I know is one day I wasn’t allowed to play outside with my friends anymore or go to school because people were getting sick. My parents starting fighting a LOT and I couldn’t see my grandparents anymore. I remember we used to go for walks with our dog. One time I saw my best friend across the street walking with her mom. I ran across the street to hug her, and my mom ran after me and stopped me, yelling at me that I couldn’t be close to her. I remember crying and yelling at my mom. My mom told me it was to protect my friend and me.

A few months later, there was a knock at the door.  There were men in military uniforms wearing riot gear and face masks. They told my dad that someone had reported that he had violated “quarantine” and that they were there to talk to us. The men came in and said they were from quarantine enforcement. They told us that someone had reported that my dad had left the house after dark. (It wasn’t true. He had never left the house after dark. Neither had my mom). Dad asked who had reported him.  The men wouldn’t tell him. They handed him a paper he had to sign and told him he would have to pay a fine, and if he did it again, they would be back to take him to jail.

They told my parents that they couldn’t go out of the house for anything except an emergency, doctor’s appointment, or get medicine. They could go out for groceries, but they said the government wanted them to order them to be delivered if they could.   They were reminded that they could NEVER go out after dark without calling for special permission and an escort.

My mom asked about the violence that the news had reported. She wanted to know how they could protect us since all the gun shops in our state were ordered closed while under “emergency declarations.”  One man said that they should just call the police, and they would respond if they could.  The man also said they should report anyone breaking curfew or trading/selling ammunition or firearms to a dedicated phone number.

I remember my parents looking scared after the men had left and trying to guess who had reported my dad. Whoever did it had deliberately lied to cause trouble for my family.  Now we didn’t trust the neighbors.

A few weeks later, there was another knock at the door. This time it was different men. This time, they took my dad away. This time someone had reported he had a gun.

 

Fiction or Possibility?

Forty-two states currently have what is being called “Stay at Home Orders.”  Essential employees are required to carry “papers” proving they are “allowed” to continue to and from their places of business. Neighbors are being PAID to turn neighbors in for “violating” curfews and “social distancing.”  Schools and playgrounds are closed.  Citizens are being fined and threatened with being arrested for violating curfews and leaving their homes for other than “essential trips.” Grocery stores have limited hours, and some have rationing in place to prevent hoarding. Some areas have activated the National Guard to “assist” in expanding medical care and testing. Cities have stopped responding to some crimes while letting CRIMINALS out from prison and jails early, to “protect” THEM.

While COMMON SENSE precautions ARE necessary, the things we see NOW are WAY beyond that. Homeschooling right now makes sense. Kids pass infections amongst themselves like no other group. They then take it home. It makes sense to prevent that from occurring. It also makes sense to eliminate MASS events. Again, the sheer density of attendance of concerts and sporting events makes rapid transmission and spread inevitable.

However, in our opinion, restaurants SHOULD have been allowed to stay open WITH restrictions. I.e. no more than than 5 tables or 10 patrons allowed in at a time OR if space allowed no more than four tables in a section and eight patrons in a section (think how big your local Olive Garden or comparable local eatery is. They could EASILY have accommodated that). Same with shops. No more than five customers in a small shop, 10 for medium and 10 per 100 sqft for large). Masks required—no need to shut down businesses and folks’ livelihood. If people want to take the risk of going out, they have the consequences of being sick and bringing it home. THAT’S ON THEM.

ONLY those with PREEXISTING documented autoimmune, cardiac, or respiratory illnesses or with those fitting that criteria IN THEIR HOME would be ALLOWED to CHOOSE to stay at home and collect supplement unemployment. The rest of the folks work or stay at home and live off their saving.

Harsh? Why aren’t folks saving? It’s not the government’s responsibility to support you unless something unexpected and catastrophic happens to you.

We are ALLOWING our liberties to be removed one at a time. QUARANTINE is supposed to be the isolation of those SICK (think back to TB Sanctuary Hospitals). It is NOT to limit the movement of the HEALTHY. THAT is TYRANNY  and should NEVER be permitted. We are idling sitting in our homes while the First Amendment Right to Assemble has been dismantled. We are no longer “permitted” to assemble,  EVEN IN OUR VEHICLES IN THE PARKING LOT in some states, to attend religious services. Yet standing in line to get into a Lowe’s, Walmart or HomeDepot is. We certainly are not permitted to assemble to protest the quarantine. 

 

We see the 2A under attack. Even WITH the President’s order declaring gun stores and Firearm manufacturing essential, we see states like CA and VA continue to close stores and implement laws against possessing firearms.How many more Liberties and Constitutional Rights are you willing to watch fall before your voice starts rising? Have you emailed and phoned your Representatives? Are you going to stand silent while your Inalienable Right to defend yourself and your community is taken away?  Once our rights are gone, they are gone, getting them back may be daunting. Are you willing to risk that? If not, SPEAK UP. We are not talking about being a Keyboard Warrior on FACEBOOK. Contact your Representatives! Local, State, and National. Go on record with your opposition!

Is The 2A Safe While Our Legislators Are Out Of Session?

In a word NO! IF anything, it’s in even MORE danger. 

Why do I say that? COMPLACENCY and DISTRACTION.

While we are ALL being, rightly so, concerned about our health and being prepared for whatever comes, there is PLENTY of behind the scenes discussion and negotiations going on about HOW to further dismantle the 2A.

How do I know this? I will use Nacy Pelosi and her attempt to ram a 1400 page Bill through Congress last month as an example. The Bill that “supposedly” was written in two days? Yeah right. 1400 pages in TWO days. Filled with pork, supporting the “New Green Deal”, forcing Companies to restructure to include mandatory percentages of women on their boards, etc. There is NO way this bill was conceived with the detail great it contained and written out in two days. That BIll is a solid example of the “behind the scenes” work that goes on while no one is looking.

Pelosi’s 1400 Page Bill

Let’s look at the states and a few counties/municipalities that have mandated gun stores CLOSE during the pandemic. A few of the orders have been reversed after courts ruled against them. Many still stand and are currently being challenged in court.

3/19 PA

3/20 NY

3/21 NJ

3/23 MA

3/24 MI   Does not include gun stores on the list of essential businesses.

3/24 NM

3/24 WA

3/24 VT

3/25 VA   Does not include gun stores on the list of essential businesses.

3/25 CA (Newsom left gun stores OFF the list of essential businesses. Stating that it is up to the individual counties. Of course, being CA a large percentage voted to close them. Numerous lawsuits have already been filed in counties).

3/25 D.C. Does not include gun stores on the list of essential businesses.

DE (Reversed its decision to close gun stores on 3/25)

3/29 AK Gun stores are not on the list of essential businesses.


Thankfully we have a President in the White House that understands not only the 2A as the law of the land but the vital IMPORTANCE of enforcing that right. ESPECIALLY during times of uncertainty such as during the pandemic. On March 30 President Trump declared not only Gun Stores as ESSENTIAL Businesses but shooting ranges and weapon manufacturers as well. This opens the door to the challenges that are in the courts being successful. As the orders to CLOSE the Gun Stores and Ranges violate the President’s Order.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The TN legislative session is scheduled to resume in June. WE CAN NOT STOP letting our state legislatures know where WE THE PEOPLE stand on the 2A. Use this time to email ALL your Representatives. Both on the state and national levels. Let them know where you stand. They may not be in session, or in their offices, but they ARE reading the emails that they receive. STAY engaged. Not only with National Legislation regarding the COVID-19 issues but the 2A as well. Trust me, Bloomberg’s groups are STILL working. (Although I would LOVE to know how many of the 2.5 million firearms purchased last month were made by FORMER Moms Demand Action and EVerytown Members). In fact, if you know any members of those groups, now if probably a good time to have conversations with them about the importance of the 2A. As more uncertainty arises, they may be more receptive to actually LISTEN. It’s worth a try.

Be safe everyone. Stay healthy, WASH YOUR HANDS and as always. Be aware. God Bless and pray for our Nation and her people.

 

H. R. 5717 This Must Be Stopped. Part 4

As I finished Section 1 of this Bill, I thought it couldn’t get worse. I was wrong.

HR5717

Honestly, I don’t see the point of continuing to break this Bill down. NEVER  have I seen a Bill written with such clear contempt of the Constitution.

This Bill sets forth MANDATORY criteria for Red Flag Laws that are beyond anything I have ever seen. Basically, ANYONE, you have ever dated, their family members, etc. can file an order. A law enforcement officer can. If you have a substance abuse issue or a mental health issue (undefined which is VERY concerning. PTSD? Depression? ), you can be under an ERPO.

If an ERPO is issued ALL your firearms MUST be turned over to Law Enforcement. NOT a family member. Even if they have a Federal-Firearm License. Good luck getting them back.

One of the many grounds for granting the ERPO is ANYTHING that can be interpreted as a threat. This is through ANY  “medium.” Meaning FB is included. If you post anything on FB that someone INTERPRETS as a threat, such as a meme that says “it’s not my dog you have to worry about it’s my gun”. Guess what. The ex says that was a threat against her. You now have an ERPO and have lost your firearms. They also report you to State Mental Health Agencies. The Extreme Risk Protection order portion of the Bill is SO detailed it runs from page 58-94.

Of course, there are  “Assault Weapons and Firearms Silencers and Mufflers Ban” and “Assault Weapons Ban.” included in this Bill.

Here is the definition of an “Assault Weapon”:

A semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any 1 of the following: (i) A pistol grip. (ii) A forward grip.(iii) A folding, telescoping, or detachable stock, or is otherwise foldable or adjustable in a manner that operates to reduce the length, size, or any other dimension, or otherwise enhances the concealability, of the weapon (iv) A grenade launcher. (v) A barrel shroud. (vi) A threaded barrel.

(B) A semiautomatic rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, except for an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.

(C) Any part, combination of parts, component, device, attachment, or accessory that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle but not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machinegun.

‘(D) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any 1 of the following:

(i) A threaded barrel. ‘‘(ii) A second pistol grip. (iii) A barrel shroud. (iv) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location grip. ( v) A semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm. (vi) A manufactured or more when unloaded accept a detachable outside of the pistol version of an auto-weight of 50 ounces. (vii) A stabilizing brace or similar component.

(E) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

(F) A semiautomatic shotgun that has any 1 of the following: (i) A folding, telescoping, or detachable stock. (ii) A pistol grip. (iii) A fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 5 rounds. (iv) The ability to accept a detachable magazine. (v) A forward grip. (vi) A grenade launcher.

(G) Any shotgun with a revolving cylinder.

(H) All of the following rifles, copies, duplicates, variants, or altered facsimiles with the capability of any such weapon thereof

(i) All AK types,

(ii) All AR types, All Thompson rifles, 

(i) All AK–47 types,

(ii) All AR–15 types,


There are PAGES and PAGES of additional firearms that will be illegal. Frankly, it would have been easier to list the firearms that WILL be allowed. That list probably would have been just a short paragraph.

The bottom line….they do NOT WANT US TO HAVE FIREARMS PERIOD. The rational part of me says there is NO way this Bill would move forward. It’s too extreme. It openly violates numerous Amendments of the Constitution. No way it would advance. Then there is the side that reminds me about VA. That whispers about Ill, NJ, NY and CA. We see further and further encroachment every day on ALL our rights. Not just the 2A. 

 This Bill not only forces states to create laws and agencies to monitor, report and investigate its citizens, it also forces states to permanently make ALL places of learning “Gun Free Zones.”  This includes Colleges and Universities, public or private. Whether the citizens want then that way or not. 

This Bill wants to significantly limit state sovereignty when it comes to the 2A.  This will be done by forcing states to write and enforce laws that not only violate their individual state constitutions but the Constitution of the United States as well.  

States will be FORCED to write EXTREME Red Flag Laws according to the FEDERAL statutes created in this Bill, and enforce them. States will be FORCED to create agencies to monitor those that are “allowed” to own a firearm. States will even be REQUIRED to report a person who does not pass a background check to the AG. This is NOT America. This sounds like Mother Russia where citizens are monitored by the KGB. This Bill completely disregards the 10th and 11th Amendments regarding State Soverntiy.

Then, there is the database they want to establish. That is not only a VERY VERY slippery slope, but it’s also a scary one. If you want to own a firearm, suddenly you are monitored and investigated as if you are a terrorist. 

The way this bill is written it is clear the SOLE purpose is to completely destroy not only the 2A but to remove the protection of the 4th amendment from firearm owners. 

I’m not going to continue breaking down and reviewing this bill. I have seen MORE than enough to be absolutely LIVID and sickened by the attempt of this Congressman. We absolutely MUST work to stop this Bill. Be LOUD. Contact your Representative and tell them in NO way is this Bill acceptable to you. Tell then you EXPECT them to uphold their oath of office and uphold the Constitution.
