‘I’m Willing to Go to Jail For It’: Sheriffs Refuse to Enforce New Gun Confiscation Law

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

In February of 2018, after the tragic shooting in Parkland, FL, President Donald Trump took to national television to betray his oath to the Constitution and his supporters and famously said, “take the guns first, go through due process second.” While this was largely ignored by his base and downplayed in the media since then, that’s exactly what’s been happening. On Friday, Democratic Gov. Jared Polis signed one of the most controversial “red flag” gun confiscation bills into law. The silver lining to this tyranny is that sheriffs are refusing to enforce it and even willing to go to jail to resist.

NRA sues Pittsburg over new gun ban law

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

The Pittsburg, PA mayor and city council have used the October 2018 mass shooting at Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill as justification for imposing a nearly total ban on firearms within the city limits.  The ban, signed into law yesterday (April 10), would prohibit the use of any semi-automatic firearm that could accept a magazine with a capacity of more than 10 rounds. The new law uses the term “military style weapons” in the ban. However, the restrictions on magazine capacity would also ban the use of most common semi-auto handguns within city limits.

OREGON: COMMITTEE PASSES TROUBLING 45-PAGE GUN CONTROL PACKAGE

by Sean Walton, The Daily Sheeple:

On April 9th, the Oregon state Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve Senate Bill 978 with the -5 Amendment. This legislation is an omnibus gun control package that, among other things, would require firearms be kept unavailable for self-defense and would also expand gun free zones where law-abiding individuals would be left defenseless. It will now go to the Senate floor for further consideration.

MUST-SEE VIDEO: Teens Beat Man Outside of Restaurant on Chicago’s Gold Coast – Until Victim Pulls Out Gun, Watch Their Reaction!

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Video emerged this week of an armed man being attacked by two teens on Chicago’s Gold Coast. The teens were pummeling the man outside of a restaurant window.

That’s when the man pulled a gun to save his life. The two young thugs immediately scampered.

The reaction from inside the restaurant was interesting. The people only got excited when the man drew his gun.

Ohio considers approving “constitutional carry”

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

Ohio is set to become the 17th state to approve “constitutional carry,” a law that would allow all law-abiding Ohioans to carry a concealed weapon without obtaining a permit — a measure that Republican Gov. Mike DeWine supports. If approved, Ohio would become the 17th state to approve connotational carry.

On Tuesday, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed into law Senate Bill 150, making Kentucky the 16th state to allow “constitutional carry.” The Kentacky law states that “Persons age twenty-one (21) or older, and otherwise able to lawfully possess a firearm, may carry concealed firearms or other concealed deadly weapons without a license in the same locations as persons with valid licenses issued under KRS 237.110.”

Gun supply retailers are FLOODING California with 30-round magazines, making sure patriots are armed up to defeat the communists when it all breaks loose

by JD Heyes, DC Clothesline:

In the aftermath of a recent federal court ruling striking down as unconstitutional a California law limiting gun magazines to 10 rounds, firearms owners throughout the state have flooded suppliers with purchases.

Following the ruling, many online gun suppliers began selling magazines of all sizes to gun owners in California. One of them, Rainier Arms, has seen purchases of its Magpul Gen2 30-round AR-15-style magazines soar to the point that the sales/payment processing server went down for a time, Ammoland reported.

Sheriff Willing to Go to JAIL Over Red Flag Gun Law: “It’s a Matter of Doing What’s Right”

by Dagny Taggart, The Organic Prepper:

A Colorado sheriff has stated that he opposes a proposed new gun control law so much that he is willing to go to jail rather than enforce it.

Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams told CNN that “It’s a matter of doing what’s right.”

Here’s a bit of background on the bill Reams is referring to. It is likely to become law this week.

CO Sheriff On Unconstitutional Red Flag Bill: “I’ll Go To Jail Before I’ll Violate Somebody’s Constitutional Rights”

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

I have always appreciated constitutional sheriffs, especially when it comes to them taking a stand that might even put themselves and their freedom in jeopardy.  In a recent report, a Colorado sheriff said that he would rather go to jail than enforce the unconstitutional red flag bill that the House is seeking to pass which would infringe upon the constitutional rights of citizens in his country.

Missouri bill will ban all federal gun-control laws

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

I thank God that our Founding Fathers, whose greatest fear was a tyrannical government, had the wisdom and foresight to institute curbs on government power in the form of numerous checks and balances.

One of those checks is the creation of a federal republic, in which the constituent geographic states have their separate powers — a founding principle that is enshrined in the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which spells out the powers of the constituent (geographical) states and of the people.

The Latest Scheme to Turn Gun Owners into Criminals

by Jonathon Moseley, American Thinker:

Gun-owners, they are coming: on March 21, a Fredericksburg man was prosecuted and convicted of the misdemeanor crime of merely holding a B.B. gun in public.  I know because I was in the trial, as the attorney defending Mr. Wolff.

The Second Amendment protects the right to keep and bear arms.  However, gun control activists are trying to criminalize gun ownership.  Their next step is that you are a criminal if you take a gun out in public.  If they have to let you own a gun, you can’t ever take it out of its case.

Are The Swiss Staying Pro-Gun In Anti-Gun Europe?

by Tom Knighton, Bearing Arms:

The Swiss are famous for a few things such as chocolate, clocks, and pocket knives.

They’re also well known for their neutrality. They want no part in what most of the world is doing, they just want to be left alone. For an individualist like me, that’s a position I can deeply respect.

Part of how they stay neutral, however, is actually having a fairly strong tradition of guns in private hands. Their system is a bit complicated, but there are a lot of guns there, and anyone who decides to tread on Swiss neutrality by force is going to have their hands full.

Door-to-door gun confiscations begin in New Zealand; one gun owner already dead, thousands targeted by armed government thugs

by JD Heyes, DC Clothesline:

If you want to know what tyranny looks like in a “democracy,” turn your gaze towards New Zealand, where liberal tolerance and acceptance has been replaced by anti-gun zealotry and authoritarianism, thanks to a single act of violence by a man who wasn’t even born on the island.

Following Brenton Tarrant’s terrorist attack on a pair of mosques earlier this month, the New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, and her government wasted no time in declaring that an entire class of firearms that were previously legal to own were suddenly illegal to own.

“Assault” weapons of the type used by Tarrant during his attack have no place in a civil society, you see, even if 99.999 percent of them are owned by law-abiding people and used responsibly.
