Chuck Baldwin on “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Laws

America has had its first killing in an attempt to confiscate an innocent man’s firearms under newly-enacted “red flag” laws.

Police officers in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, showed up to confiscate 60-year-old Gary Willis’ guns. A family member had called police and asked them to suspend Gary’s gun rights, and the local police department was more than happy to oblige.

When the pounding on the door began at 5:17 am, Gary showed up to his door holding a firearm. When he saw it was police, he put the gun down to talk to them. But then the officers informed him they were there to confiscate all of his weapons.

Imagine how you would feel. You wake up out of a sound sleep to pounding on your door. You grab a gun in case it is a criminal, but it turns out that the police are there to confiscate your guns without even accusing you of committing a crime.

Gary refused to comply with the confiscation order. That is when a fight broke out. During the struggle, police opened fire on Gary Willis, killing the 60-year-old man in his own home.

Gary was not charged or even accused of committing a crime. Police judged him guilty until proven innocent — which is exactly what EVERY “red flag” law does.

All of this happened because one extended family member told police she was worried that he was dangerous. No evidence, no proof . . . just one person’s word. And now, an innocent man is dead.

This is America’s future if establishment Republicans get their way. They are working with Democrats on a nationwide “red flag” bill to authorize these kinds of gun confiscations across the country.

And we already know that Donald Trump is solidly behind these “red flag” laws. His quote:

“Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

Soon after Trump spoke those words, Republicans in Florida (they controlled the House, Senate and Governor’s office) passed their own Hitlerian “red flag” law, (as have numerous other states). Since then hundreds of innocent Floridians have had their guns seized by police.

Now, we have our first American citizen killed by police during an attempt to enforce a “red flag” law. (I predicted this would happen as soon as I heard about these “red flag” laws.) He won’t be the last.

If people value their right to keep and bear arms, they better start banding together in large numbers to make sure these “red flag” laws do not become law in their states — or even in our entire country by an act of the federal congress.

And if you are depending on Republicans to protect your 2nd Amendment liberties, you are totally in the dark about what is going on (neither can we depend on the NRA for help). Donald Trump and a host of Republicans in DC are plotting RIGHT NOW to enact federal “red flag” laws. And Republicans (along with Democrats) are enacting “red flag” laws in State legislatures all over the country.

WAKE UP, FOLKS, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE — OR ONE DAY POLICE WILL BE BANGING ON YOUR DOOR TO CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS.

Any culture which, in the interests of efficiency or in the name of some political or religious dogma, seeks to standardize the human individual, commits an outrage against man’s biological nature.

Arvin Vohra and Tiffany Diaz De Leon on Education

Education doesn’t have to be welfare. It doesn’t have to be paid for by taxes, or administered by government.

As an educator, I consider education to be the second most important part of life. The most important part is food. What if we treated education like food?

Some people would choose to provide education at home, just as today many people prepare meals at home. Some might use prepackaged curricula, like the Ron Paul Curriculum – just as today some people like prepared meals.

Others might find deep interest and passion in education, just as some people love exploring new recipes at home. Others might choose to use private schools, just as today people go to private restaurants. Some might have in-home tutors, just as today some people hire caterers.

Most people would probably use a mix – just as today, most people sometimes cook at home, sometimes microwave prepared meals, and sometimes eat at restaurants.

Separating education from the welfare state will give more choices, better quality, and lower taxes. If elected, I will do everything I can to end all government funded, subsidized, or managed education.

Respectfully,

Arvin Vohra
Candidate for U.S. Senate

Great Post.

In Washington State, our Dollar Stores are pretty high speed — fresh produce, dairy, lunch meat, aisles and aisles of crackers, noodles, condiments, soda.

Could a poor person survive on dollar store food only? Yes.

May not like it all of the time, but if you are poor what choice do you have?

Moving up the food/grocery ladder . . .

* Big Lots — discount store, some grocery
* Walmart
* Sam’s Club
* Costco
* Cash and Carry
* Standard grocery stores such as Safeway, Albertsons
* Wholefoods and PCC
* Small yuppie, posh grocery stores in smaller yuppie posh neighborhoods such as Harbor Greens with custom meat, expensive dressings, and overpriced olive bars.

Then onto higher-priced foods such as crab legs, lobster bisques, prime rib

– Sprinkle in, as above, (range of) restaurants and/or home delivered meals.

But instead of being food. Above could be education. Yes, Dollar Store – education. Yes, olive bar – education. Yes, home delivery — education.

Maybe parents can only afford dollar store food — to send their child to ‘Wholefoods’ – level education.

Answer is always the same = Subsidize Nothing.

Answer is always the same = Free Markets.

Food, education, dry-cleaning, medical care, socks, birth control, no matter = free market.

At least with education, the Internet (modem dinging sound effect) has leveled the playing field tremendously 🙂

#UberizeEducation
#AlacarteEducation
#DollarStoreEducation
#NotMyKid

So instead of Uberizing education, you would prefer to keep your kids in the government-owned and -operated indoctrination and daycare centers public schools

  • Where your kids can sample all of the latest drugs, both recreational and officially-sanctioned?
  • Where your kids can get alcohol?
  • Where your kids can have sex with their peers (or teachers, or the janitor, or the “school resource officer”)?
  • Where your kids can go through metal detectors and / or get wand-raped before entering the building?
  • Where your kids can get their officially-issued ID card with embedded RFID chip (biometrics coming soon!)?
  • Where your kids can know that they’re safe because someone affixed a sign saying “NO WEAPONS ALLOWED” sign to a post on the property boundary?
  • Where your kids can be taught that a mile is a shorter distance than a kilometer?
  • Where your kids can be tasered, pepper-sprayed and handcuffed for the offense of “being out of line” ?

“Fake News” ? Advertising Disguised as News?

Filed under: Media, Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:07 PM (20:07)

From: Mike Blessing
To: Elise Kaplan
Date: Sun, Aug 5, 2018 at 4:34 PM
Subject: “Fake News” ? Advertising Disguised as News?

Miranda Viscoli should thank the Journal for its front-page advertising copy for her organization in the Sunday paper. What else to call the article titled “Youth and guns: A deadly mix” ?

Were any pro-Second Amendment organizations (NM Shooting Sports Association, NM Gun Collectors Assocation, Gun Owners of Mexico) contacted for this article? If not, WHY not?

From the article —

“Although anyone under 19 is barred from possessing or transporting a handgun in New Mexico, it’s clear many young people are ignoring the law.”

Imagine that — people willing to kill and maim others to get what they want won’t bother with filling out a Form 4473 with a federally-licensed gun dealer! Who would have expected that?

Anyone looking for loopholes in the gun laws need look no further.

Of course, none of this is stopping Keller from seeking $800,000 from the feds for a “Crime Gun Intelligence Center.” Because It Will Make A Difference (TM). So says Keller.

Nor is this stopping Viscoli from demanding more restrictions upon people who do NOT commit crimes with their firearms.

Never mind that statistics show that only 0.01% of firearms[1] are used for freelance criminal activity[2]. Viscoli is determined to infringe the liberty of the 99.99% of gun owners who do NOT commit criminal acts against other people.

As for the name of Viscoli’s organization — “New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence” (is this another Bloomberg-financed astroturf outfit?) — where can we find “New Mexicans to Prevent Knife Violence,” or “New Mexicans to Prevent Blunt-Object Violence”? Do these organizations (IF they exist at all) have Facebook Pages[3]?

Or is the very phrase “gun violence” designed to instill a fear of firearms in people who aren’t gun owners?

Y&T — Hang ‘Em High

Filed under: entertainment, Listening, Media — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:12 AM (06:12)

Walk like a warrior through the shadows of the night
Shatter the silence with our screams
Like a tiger, move in for the kill
We’re gonna get what we need

We stand together, feel it closing in
Electric shock through our veins
Power of numbers cannot be denied
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky

Soldier of fortune, always on the run
Your enemy lies within
You must escape from the shackles in your mind
Stand like a warrior and win

Join our ranks, there ain’t no losers here
As long as we never divide
We are a force so strong we never have to run
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky

Walk like a warrior through the shadows of the night
Shatter the silence with our screams
Power of numbers cannot be denied
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky

They always told me I must try to be
Like everyone in the nation
Go with the flow, remember me is we
There must be no deviation
Well, now I think that I’ll go my own way
I’ve got my own point of view
I just don’t care what other people say
I do what I wanna do

You know that I’m ready
I’m ready to rock
You know that I’m ready
I’m ready to rock
Gonna rock

I’m lookin’ out for number one / number one
I’m lookin’ out for number one / number one
I’m lookin’ out for number one / number one
I’m lookin’ out for number one / number one

The time has come for you to make a stand
You’ve got to do things your own way
Forget about the style, forget the brand
‘Cause every dog has his own day
It doesn’t matter what the others think
What counts is do you like you?
You think you’re drownin’ but you’ll never sink
Just do what you wanna do

You better get ready, get ready to rock
You better get ready, get ready to rock
Gotta rock

You know that we’re ready, we’re ready to rock
You know that we’re ready, we’re ready to rock
Gonna rock

We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for, out for number one
