Second Amendment Court Win Leads To Meltdown Of Liberal Gun Grabbers – If California Fights This Ruling It Could End Up Affirming Gun Rights From Coast To Coast

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

By now many have already heard that Federal Judge Roger T. Benitez has struck down a 32 year ban on “assault weapons” in California. In his judgement Benitez expanded on what is and what is not truly “assault” weapons, as well as taking a hit at the media’s mischaracterization of the damage caused by AR-15’s in comparion to other weapons and even Covid-19 deaths.

Because this is so well known by now, we will not focus as much on the actual ruling, other than a few quotes from the ruling directly below, but rather the main focus will be on the meltdown over this decision by gun grabbing liberals, including CA governor Gavin Newsom, and most importantly the extremely probable outcome should California decide to appeal this decision.

California 2A Ruling: Oops

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

Well well look what we have here...

“Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment,” Benitez said in the ruling. “Firearms deemed as ‘assault weapons’ are fairly ordinary, popular, modern rifles.”

In his ruling, the judge also criticized the news media, writing, “One is to be forgiven if one is persuaded by news media and others that the nation is awash with murderous AR-15 assault rifles. The facts, however, do not support this hyperbole, and facts matter.”

Both statements are true.

Federal Judge Overturns California’s Ban On Assult Weapons

from ZeroHedge:

Liberals are probably having a meltdown after a George W. Bush-appointed federal judge in California ruled the state’s ban on assault weapons is unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego released a 94-page ruling late Friday, indicating California’s three-decade ban on assault weapons violates the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms.

Private Security Isn’t Enough: Why America Needs Militias

by Jason Morgan, Mises Institute:

In late May we learned that, after a five-month deployment to one of the most dangerous cities in the world, the American military would finally be going home.

Well, not really. They already were home. The dangerous warzone was the American federal capital, Washington, DC. And the “danger” that the military was supposed to be countering was entirely government made. The military—the National Guard—was on a mission to “secure the capital” after a few hundred rowdies had a Jacksonian moment on Capitol Hill. People who obviously had no plan beyond their afternoon tear through the halls of Congress were somehow presented as an existential threat to the American government, and so the statists in Washington ordered the National Guard to remain deployed. Apparently, the guy who stole a piece of stationery from Nancy Pelosi’s office in January was so terrifying that it took thousands of troops to make sure he didn’t come back and do it again.

Biden ATF Nominee David Chipman Says He Supports Banning AR-15s

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

David Chipman, a former ATF agent who was reportedly involved in the massacres at Waco and Ruby Ridge before cashing in as an anti-gun lobbyist for billionaire Michael Bloomberg, said Wednesday he supports banning the most popular rifle in America.

Chipman suggested an “assault weapon” consists of “any semi-automatic rifle capable of accepting a detachable magazine above the caliber of .22” — which includes nearly every rifle in America.

Chicago Sees Its Worst Mostly Peaceful Weekend Since 2015

by Keven Downey Jr, PJ Media:

Sun’s Out, Guns Out

Beautiful spring weather in the Windy City means two things for Chicagoans: baseball and redrum. This past weekend was a grand slam! The weekend timeline is considered 12 noon Friday to 6:00 am Monday by the crime-tracking site heyjackass.com

With 13 killed and 42 wounded by firearms, this was the worst lead-fest weekend of 2021 and the worst 4th weekend of May since 2015, when Chicago stacked 12 dead and 45 wounded. If this trend continues into the hot, humid summer, Chicago’s morgue will need to hire seasonal help.

Anti-Gun Media Silent as Armed Good Samaritan Stops Mass Shooter in His Tracks

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Fort Smith, AR — A tragedy unfolded over the weekend in Fort Smith, Arkansas as a US Army veteran apparently snapped and went on a shooting rampage at an apartment complex. Zachary Arnold, 26, was armed with an AR-15, and began shooting up the apartment complex, killing 87-year-old Lois Hicks. However, Arnold’s name was not paraded on mainstream television and media didn’t harp on the fact that he had an AR-15, thanks to a good Samaritan who was also heavily armed.

This 9-0 SCOTUS Ruling on Guns Shows Just How Extreme (and Dangerous) the Biden Administration Really Is

by Bryan Preston, PJ Media:

Did you hear that Joe Biden’s Department of Justice wanted the Supreme Court to rule that police could search Americans’ homes for firearms — and confiscate them — without a warrant?

In the case of Caniglia vs. Stromthis issue was in play. Had SCOTUS ruled police could do that, your Second Amendment rights would have been in grave jeopardy.

In March, Biden’s DoJ filed a brief with the Supreme Court in this case. It said:

Time To Focus On God, Groceries, Gold And Guns And Batten Down The Hatches As America’s Financial House Of Cards Comes Crashing Down: Pray, Plan, Prepare!

by Don Boys, Ph.D., All News Pipeline:

I am yelling fire because fire is raging. Mixing metaphors, the storm is not coming; it’s already here. America’s financial house of cards will fall, taking other nations with her. Thoughtful Conservatives must inform people of imminent danger because families will be disrupted, businesses will fail, couples will be divorced, and children will suffer immeasurably.

The economy has faltered, is failing, and will fall.

I see no way out of the coming collapse. Sometimes politicians make such a mess of things that there is no way to correct or solve the mess. It’s almost like being in a small boat on a raging sea, unsure how far you are from the coast you left and the distance to where you hope to dock. You keep going hoping to stay afloat; however, our “boat” is overwhelmed with accelerating debt.

Alert!! Absolutely Insane New Videos Of Armed And Dangerous Antifa Thugs Assaulting Drivers In Portland Is Reason Enough To Declare Portland A No-Go Zone

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

A few years ago, we thought Portland, Oregon had hit the lowest point as Antifa goons blocked streets, directed traffic by ordering them to obey their rules, all the while police stood aside and watched the harassment without doing a thing to help the drivers.

 

Well, we thought wrong, things have gotten worse.

Recently the Mayor, Ted Wheeler, largely responsible for forcing the police to stand down and let the Antifa thugs rule the streets for years, decided it was time to pretend to care, so he gave a performance in later April, and declared war on Antifa.

Brace Yourselves, the Liberal Media Is About to Flip Over This Tweak to Texas’ Gun Laws

0

by Matt Vespa, Townhall:

Texas is a Second Amendment bastion. And they’re poised to become the one of the newest members of the constitutional carry club. Local politics prevented this push in times past. Now, a bill allowing for permitless carry has passed a state senate committee. Gov. Greg Abbott has been clear: If the bill comes to my desk, I’ll sign it. It now goes to the Texas Senate floor for a full vote, where some reports say passage is not a slam-dunk. The senate is split 18-13, with Republicans controlling the chamber. That’s not a lot of wiggle room for antics. Still, should this pass, Texas will become the largest state in the country with constitutional carry (via ABC News):

As Feds Frantically Push Gun Control, 9th Circuit Overturns Ban on 3D-Printed Guns

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

For generations, advocates of private gun ownership have been fighting exhaustively through political channels to protect their right to keep and bear arms. Gun owners even have one of the strongest lobby groups in Washington, the highly disappointing NRA. Yet over the years, gun rights continue to diminish in America, despite the constant political campaigns by the NRA and politicians who claim to support gun rights.

On Tuesday, a small victory was had in the Ninth Circuit as the court overturned Trump’s ban on 3D-printed gun blueprints. The appeals court’s ruling effectively lifts the Trump-era restrictions on exporting specs for 3D-printed guns.

Montana Governor Signs Bill Protecting From Federal Second Amendment Violations

by Darian Douraghy, Big League Politics:

This past Friday Montana Governor Greg Gianforte signed legislation to protect from any kind of upcoming federal legislation that threatens the second amendment rights of Montanans.

“Today, I proudly signed Rep. Hinkle’s law prohibiting federal overreach into our Second Amendment-protected rights, including any federal ban on firearms,” Gianforte posted on Twitter. “I will always protect our #2A right to keep and bear arms.”

Clinton-Obama Official: Biden Could Get Gun Control Through Congress by ‘Reframing the Issue as a National Security Imperative’

by Awr Hawkins, Breitbart:

Clinton-Obama official Steven Simon is urging President Joe Biden to designate gun control a “national security imperative” in order to get it through Congress.

Politico published an op-ed written by Simon and Jonathan Stevenson, who served as the National Security Council’s “director for political-military affairs” for roughly two years during the Obama administration.
