The ACLU is now waging war on the Bill of Rights.

Would-Be Robbery Victim Exercises His Second Amendment And Shoots At Suspects

by Brianna Lyman, The Daily Caller:

A would-be-robbery victim whipped out a gun Monday and shot two suspects in the leg in Los Angeles, according to a surveillance video released by police.

The incident unfolded Monday night around 7:10 p.m. when two suspects, later identified as parolee Nicholas Brown, 22, and fellow parolee Markeil Hayes, 28, exited from their Dodge Avenger near Melrose Avenue and Vista Street, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said.

National Foundation for Gun Rights Sends Cease and Desist Letter to San Jose City Council, Mayor and City Attorney Railing Against Their Unconstitutional Gun Grab

by Shane Trejo, Big League Politics:

On July 14, 2021, the National Foundation for Gun Rights issued a cease and desist letter where it demanded the San Jose Mayor and the City Council to stop their attempt to subject law-abiding gun owners to taxes simply for exercising their right to bear arms.

For those with short-term memory, the San Jose City Council unanimously voted on June 19 to draft an ordinance subjecting gun owners to a mandatory fee that covers the costs of “gun violence.” On top of that, the City Council voted to force gun owners to buy gun liability insurance.

61% of American Counties are now Second Amendment Sanctuaries

by Shane Trejo, Big League Politics:

According to SanctuaryCounties.com, the majority of counties in the US are now Second Amendment sanctuaries

As of July, there are over 1,900 counties (1930 to be more precise) that are “protected by Second Amendment Sanctuary legislation at either the state or county level,” which constitutes 61% of 3,141 counties and county equivalents throughout the US.

The Second Amendment sanctuary movement is the product of nationwide grassroots campaigns spearheaded by local leaders who promised to not enforce unconstitutional gun control laws that come from the federal or state level.

Missouri Tells the Feds: We Won’t Enforce Your Gun Laws

by Ryan McMaken, Mises Institute:

On June 12, Missouri governor Mike Parson signed HB 85, the “Second Amendment Preservation Act” recently approved by the state’s legislature.

The new law is designed to prevent state and local law enforcement from enforcing federal laws regulating private ownership of firearms.

The act

Declares that all federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations, whether past, present, or future, that infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article I, Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution must be invalid in this state, including those that impose a tax, levy, fee, or stamp on these items as specified in the bill; require the registration or tracking of these items or their owners; prohibit the possession, ownership, use, or transfer of a firearm; or order the confiscation of these items

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.
