7 Reasons You Need to Stand Against Red Flag Guns Laws

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

The Associated Press reports Congress is seriously considering red flag gun laws.

These laws, also called “extreme risk protection orders,” allow courts to issue orders allowing law enforcement to seize firearms from people who’ve committed no crime but are believed to be a danger to themselves or others.

President Trump has signaled his backing of bipartisan Senate legislation sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.

Trump is gambling with ‘red flag’ laws as Americans see a slippery slope on gun control

by Andrew West, Freedom OutPost:

While the Second Amendment is most often characterized as a right, there are characteristics of the guarantee that imbue separate, equally potent powers to the American people.

In many way, the right to bear arms is an insurance policy, more than a right.  It exists not for hunting, sport, or self defense, but rather as a reminder that we must remain vigilant against those who rise into power.  American politicians and government agencies cannot overstep their bounds, or impose even the slightest inkling of authoritarian rule, without first considering what the true power of an armed and freepopulace could be.

Hijacking the Second Amendment

by Joe Lauria, Consortium News:

The gun lobby has hijacked the Second Amendment, which was intended for citizen militias to provide domestic “security” without a standing army. The amendment is a dangerous relic, never clearer than  after El Paso and Dayton, writes Joe Lauria.

The Second Amendment was written after a war in which a new nation without a standing army defeated the biggest standing army on the planet. To defend itself, the new country relied on citizens arming themselves in civilian militias.

by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News:

“People are realizing that even a trip to Walmart isn’t safe these days”

In the wake of the shootings in Dayton and El Paso, and ahead of potential gun control legislation being enacted by President Trump, firearms sales have surged, as Americans look to protect themselves.

The Washington Examiner reports that gun shops are seeing an uptick in business, particularly from first time buyers.

National Rifle Association sends stern warning to POTUS over ‘red flag’ laws

by Andrew West, Freedom OutPost:

With the nation clamoring for something to be done about a recent spate of mass shootings, it appears that nearly all options are on the table for President Trump.

Predictably, several of the usual storylines have emerged in the wake of last weekend’s violence.  The far left is looking to ban “assault” weapons outright, while republicans and libertarians attempt to steer the conversation in the direction of mental health.  In the middle of this well-worn path lies the concept of “red flag” laws – something that President Trump has expressed some support for over the course of the last few days.

Barack Obama Calls For All-Out Gun Confiscation Following El Paso Shooting

by Sean Walton, The Daily Sheeple:

In his first statement following the shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH, former President Obama has come forward with an aggressive plan for Democrats: Do more, and consider passing gun confiscation laws.

His response came in a Tweet, where the former President seems to blame President Donald Trump for the shooting in El Paso, regurgitating the same talking points that CNN has been spewing since the moment the shooting occurred. Not only that, but Obama seems to insinuate the the United States, which elected him, a black man, as President, is white supremacist, stating that the shooter acted to “preserve white supremacy.”

The Dirty Secret About Gun Control In Latin America

from Silver Doctors:

It is time for us as a nation not to normalize the violence and the carnage of gun violence…

by Jose Nino via Mises Wire

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos wants an America filled with gun control.

During a segment of Real America with Jorge Ramos, the journalist played a number of clips featuring 2020 presidential hopeful Cory Booker’s plan to tackle America’s alleged gun violence “epidemic.”

In this video, Booker proclaimed that “It is time for us as a nation not to normalize the violence and the carnage of gun violence. It is time that we come together and stand together and take the fight to the NRA and the corporate gun lobby like we have never seen before!”

1991 Book Warned ‘Secret Government’ Would Use Patsies To Shoot Up America To Eliminate 2nd Amendment

Over the past two years following several different mass shooting events, we have published numerous stories on ANP that have reported upon both ‘MKUltra, the top-secret CIA mind control program which was confirmed by documents released back in 2018 and that it could be used upon large crowds and may still be ongoing now, as well as the warnings given by a former US Navy Intelligence officer who warned in a 1991 book of a plan to do away the 2nd Amendment in America by inflaming the masses with a series of mass shooting events that would push the middle class into doing away with the rights of Americans to own guns.

Not Letting a ‘Good Tragedy Go to Waste,’ Trump Joins Dems to Push for Gun Control

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Multiple tragic mass shootings have once again gripped the nation and thrown Americans in a tizzy of debate about gun control. These latest tragedies have managed to get bipartisan support for new gun control measures with president Donald Trump, prominent Republicans and Democrats coming out swinging just hours after the shootings.

Echoing the famous sentiment of Rahm Emmanuel of “never (letting) a serious crisis to go to waste,” Trump came out aggressively this week noting that “We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!”
