Want Some Free Guns? The Government Gave $1.2 Million Worth Of Military Gear To A Fake Police Department

by Daniel Lang, SHTFPlan:
In recent years it’s become increasingly difficult for ordinary Americans to ignore the fact that their local police departments are becoming militarized. Just a couple generations ago, the police were armed with pretty much the same weapons that civilians could own. They drove vehicles that, without decals and sirens, wouldn’t be out of place at an ordinary car dealership. They wore uniforms that were comparable to clothes worn by other civilian government employees. Now they carry assault rifles, drive armored vehicles, and on occasion they wear camouflage. They look and sometimes act, just like soldiers in a warzone.

So what made our police departments so militarized? You can partly blame the Pentagon’s 1033 program, which was implemented by the National Defense Authorization Act of 1997. The program allows the Defense Logistics Agency to loan military grade weapons, equipment, and vehicles to local police departments, thus allowing them to transform into paramilitary squads on a shoe string budget.

Why Smart Guns Are Incredibly Dumb: Hacker Cracks Smart Gun With $15 Magnets

Smart guns probably provide the last chance for gun control advocates to have their way. After trying and failing for decades to completely eviscerate gun rights in America, their last best hope is to simply let defiant gun owners have their weapons, but with conditions. They’ll try to compromise with gun owners, and tell them that they can have any firearm they want, so long as it is a smart gun, which is supposedly safer since it can’t be used by unauthorized individuals like children and criminals.

But as we all know, everything gun control advocates propose is a slippery slope. How long before these smart guns, like all smart gadgets, begin to spy on their owners? How long before smart guns can be disabled by authorities from a distance, which would effectively defang their role in society as determined by the Second Amendment?

Gun-Controlled Chicago: Women Buying Pistols, Carrying Concealed for Self-Defense

by Awr Hawkins, Breitbart:
Women are buying handguns and taking courses for concealed carry permits in response to the surging violence in gun-controlled Chicago.
Breitbart News reported there were nearly 4,400 shooting victims and almost 800 homicides in Chicago during 2016. Moreover, the Chicago Tribune reported that the city passed 1,000 shooting victims for 2017 before April was even over.

The violence in gun-controlled Chicago was so bad by the end of June that President Trump announced he was sending in “federal help” to try to stop the bloodshed.

We Need To Pass ‘Stand Your Ground’ In Every State, Abolish The BATFE, And Repeal The Major Federal Gun Laws

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
Throughout history, dictators and tyrants have always wanted to take guns away from the people. Hitler confiscated guns once he took power in Germany, Stalin confiscated guns in Soviet Russia, and Mao confiscated guns when the communists took power in China. An armed population is one of the cornerstones of a free society, and our founders understood this very well. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t seem to understand the Second Amendment in our day and time. The following is what the Second Amendment actually says…

Want to solve the violent shootings problem in Chicago? Let law-abiding citizens defend themselves with concealed carry

by JD Heyes, BugOut News:
Liberals have always been extremely confused when it comes to firearms and the Second Amendment. They seem to think that the right to bear arms as outlined in the United States Constitution is somehow connected to gun crimes in this country, and that if it weren’t for the Second Amendment, our country as a whole would be a much safer place. (Related: Remember when Obama demanded that congress pass a law denying Second Amendment rights to anyone the government put on a list?) Based on this logic, Chicago should resemble Heaven on Earth. After all, the radical left wing politicians that run the city have all but banned individual firearm ownership, so Chicago should look like a clean, peaceful Utopian society, right?

Oregon Passes Law to Allow Judge to Order Gun Confiscation from Law Abiding Citizens

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:
The state of Oregon is largely run by Communists and Communist sympathizers. In one of the latest bills, the state claims to give the right (unlawfully) to a judge to strip law abiding citizens of their arms and concealed handgun licenses based on the judge’s own determination without any criminal conviction.

According to SB719, which was co-sponsored by Senator Bian Boquist (R-Dallas), a judge can issue an ex parte ruling in order to confiscate a citizen’s guns.

The legislation, which has passed both the House and the Senate, now heads to the Governor Kate Brown’s desk for her signature.

Tax Collectors In Florida Openly Carry Guns, While Public Is Banned From Doing So

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

Tax collectors in Florida are now publicly announcing the values of being armed when demanding money from citizens. The only problem is that the state bans open carry for civilians that the tax collectors are stealing money from.

If you’re leery about government intervention in your life, and you know that taxation is theft, this article will probably strike a nerve. However, on the other hand, if you revile and worship the government which steals from you and creates edicts you must follow under threats of violence using your stolen money, you’ll love what they are doing down in the Sunshine state.

Federal Judge Blocks California Magazine Confiscation Law: “The Constitution Is A Shield From The Tyranny Of The Majority”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:
It’s no secret that people on the left have a disdain for our representative form of government. That’s why they threw such a big fit over the electoral college system after the last election. They don’t like the idea that laws and elections aren’t determined by the will of the majority, and they don’t recognize how dangerous that would be for everyone’s freedom (or worse, in some cases they know exactly how dangerous it would be).

But their hatred for our constitutional republic extends beyond the electoral college. They would prefer to live under a pure democracy, where the majority of the population can trash the rights of the minority. They would rather live under a system where individual rights are sacrificed for their twisted version of “the common good.”

California Wants all its Citizens to be Disarmed So That No One Can Resist the Tyranny That’s Coming When the State Goes Bankrupt

by JD Heyes, BugOut News:
In a letter to James Madison dated December 20, 1787, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.” This perfectly summarizes the true intent of the Second Amendment, while simultaneously explaining the real reason why modern day democrats oppose the individual right to bear arms so strongly. The fact of the matter is that the Second Amendment wasn’t included in the Bill of Rights so that future generations could legally go out hunting, nor was it written so that Americans could participate in firearm-related sports; it was intended to empower the people to defend themselves and their country against tyranny.
