Biden Won’t Undo the Second Amendment in Texas On My Watch: AG Paxton

by Tom Ozimek, The Epoch Times:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton took aim at the push to restrict gun rights by President Joe Biden, who on the Feb. 14 anniversary of the Parkland shooting called on Congress to impose tougher laws on ownership of firearms.

“The Parkland shooting 3 years ago was an act of unspeakable evil,” Paxton wrote in a tweet late Sunday. “But Democrats cannot be allowed to use this tragedy as an opportunity to cram down unhelpful and unconstitutional gun laws.

Biden To Congress: Enact Major Restrictions On Constitutionally Protected Second Amendment Rights

by Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire:

Democrat President Joe Biden called on Congress to clamp down on Americans’ constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights on Sunday, demanding gun bans and new laws that will allow people to sue gun manufacturers.

“I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden wrote to Congress.

January Had Record-Breaking Sales for Firearms

by Jose Nino, Big League Politics:

Good luck trying to pass gun control.

Don’t expect Americans to stop buying guns anytime soon. According to Dean Weingarten of AmmoLand, a record number of National Instant Background Check System (NICS) were conducted in January. This represents the highest number of checks conducted in one month since the system was set up in 1998. The second highest month was December 2020, which had 3,937,068 checks.

Why Are So Many Americans Stockpiling Guns, Silver And Food Right Now?

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

We were told that 2021 would be the year when everything starts to get back to normal.  But that hasn’t exactly been the case, has it?  It has been just over a month, and there is still chaos everywhere.  We have seen a wild riot at the U.S. Capitol, civil unrest has been erupting in major cities from coast to coast, millions of people have filed for unemployment benefits, a president was impeached, and a crazy ride on Wall Street made “GameStop” a national phenomenon.  That would normally be enough for an entire year, but we are still in the first week of February.

Biden’s goal ‘is to put gun makers out of business’

by John R. Lott Jr., WND:

If guns really are no benefit, Democrats ‘ought to ask their bodyguards to disarm’

During the 2020 campaign, Joe Biden promised a long list of gun control regulations. There is a reason that Michael Bloomberg spent $125 million helping Biden in Florida and something over $600 million nationally in the general election.

The agenda includes: classifying many semi-automatic rifles and magazines holding more than 10 bullets as Class 3 weapons (which can require nine months or more for approval and a $200 fee), national gun licensing, “red flag” laws that let judges take away people’s guns without a hearing, background checks on the private transfer of guns, and bans on some semi-automatic firearms that happen to look like military weapons.

Judge Rules New York Lawsuit Seeking Dissolution of NRA Can Proceed

by Luis Miguel, The New American:

The National Rifle Association was dealt a setback on Thursday when the New York State Supreme Court ruled against the organization’s motion to dismiss, delay, or transfer a lawsuit that seeks to dissolve the pro-Second Amendment group.

The lawsuit was brought forward by New York Attorney General Letitia James. It aims to end the NRA, which is incorporated as a nonprofit in the state of New York, because the group allegedly defrauded donors.

The NRA had hoped to persuade the judge to either dismiss the trial or move it from anti-gun Manhattan to the more politically friendly Albany.

Black And White Pro Gun Activists Marched Together in Virginia, Guess Who Police Detained

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Richmond, VA — Here at the Free Thought Project, we stay away from the race-baiting and divide stoking that the mainstream media carries out on a daily basis. You will almost never see black or white in a headline as it is usually not relevant to the matter at hand. Though the legacy media dwells on it daily, we feel that concentrating on race all the time perpetuates divide by alienating people based on the level of melanin in their skin. That being said, we feel that skin color played a major role in the following story, making it entirely relevant.

EXCLUSIVE: I’ve Been BANNED From Owning A Firearm, A Warning Of What’s To Come For All Conservative Americans

by Laura Loomer, Loomered:

For years, Big Tech has used me as Patient Zero in their test case in mass de-platforming by eliminating my ability to reach the public because of my political views.

Being forced to use alternative social media sites, I know I’ve been a little “offline” since I ran for Congress in President Trump’s home district, Florida-21 a few months ago. But I feel compelled to reach out to you to share a shocking story about something that happened to me and is relevant to all of us. It might have seemed implausible a few years ago, but things are rapidly changing here in America, our rights are in danger, and our Republic is in a fragile place.

NRA Files For Bankruptcy, Announces Plans To Move To Texas

by Michael Ginsburg, The Daily Caller:

The National Rifle Association (NRA) filed for bankruptcy and will be reincorporating in Texas, the group announced Friday.

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre wrote in a letter posted on the non-profit’s website that the group would be “free from the toxic political environment of New York.” New York State Attorney General Letitia James is currently suing the NRA with the goal of dissolving the organization. New York’s lawsuit alleges that top executives, including LaPierre, stole millions of dollars from the gun rights group.

GoDaddy kicks biggest gun forum off internet without explanation

from WND:

Joe Biden once promised that fellow Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke, who famously threatened to send cops out to confiscate certain weapons, would be his point person on gun control if elected.

It seems that agenda has been launched, even before Biden’s inauguration.

The Federalist reports AR15.com, the largest gun forum, has been shut down by the web hosting company GoDaddy.

What Will Happen to Gun Rights Under the Biden Presidency?

by Larry Alton, American Thinker:

Any time a liberal candidate is elected to become President of the United States, gun rights and regulations take center stage. Historically, gun sales have surged in the two months between a Democratic presidential nomination and inauguration. And that’s precisely what we’re seeing right now.

A Quick Primer on the Second Amendment

Whenever gun laws and regulations become a key topic of conversation, it’s important to push past the filler and focus on the meat. In other words, start with the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights and what it says:
