Never let a crisis go to waste: Another gun-control bill HR 5717 in Congress

Like Satan, Democrats simply never sleep and are relentless in pushing their agenda of abortion, gun control, illegal immigration, and ever-bigger government.

Not even when the United States is in the midst of unprecedented monumental crisis because a crisis must never be let to go to waste.

 

On January 30, 2020, just when the Wuhan coronavirus began to occupy the world’s attention, the earwax-eating Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), who thought the island of Guam would tip over with 8,000 U.S. Marines, introduced HR 5717, a gun control bill with the sanctinomious name of Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020.

HR 5717 would do the following:

(1) Gun license:

  • A license is required to purchase, acquire, or possess a firearm or ammunition.
  • Only those 21 years old or older, who have completed training in firearm safety and who are deemed psychologically and behaviorally “suitable,” are eligible for a gun license.
  • The license must be renewed every 10 years.

(2) Prohibited from firearm possession are:

  • Perpetrators of “domestic violence,” which includes those who engage in stalking, “harassment, intimidation, or surveillance” of the victims.
  • Those who have been issued an “extreme risk protection order,” defined as those who pose a danger of causing harm to the petitioner or others by having access to a firearm. “Domestic violence” is a type of “extreme risk”.

(3) The sale, manufacture, import, transfer or possession of semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices are forbidden by law.

HR 5717 has 18 co-sponsors, all Democrats. See their names here.

Backdoor gun grab/control via “emergency orders”

Every gun-grabber’s dream: Use the Wuhan virus as an excuse to suspend your Second Amendment rights. See the following examples:

Los Angeles: “LA County Sheriff tells me he is beginning to close county gun stores immediately. Deputies are currently going to the stores one by one to order them shut down. Sheriff to utilize scofflaw violations for any gun store still open after he deemed them nonessential.

The Sheriff told me he is a gun owner himself, supports 2nd amendment, but believes too many first time buyers are panicking and bringing guns into homes where people are locked down, which he believes is recipe for disaster with potential accidental shootings.”

(The stores in Burbank are going to remain open because they facilitate security needs. They were ordered to close on Saturday, but the city revised it today.)

Pennsylvania: “Big news: PA Governor Tom Wolf has issued new guidelines that will allow gun stores to remain open across the state, as long as they follow specific social distancing mandates.

The governor’s order is very close to the ideas offered up by three state Supreme Court justices in their dissenting opinion in a suit challenging the governor’s original declaration about “essential” businesses.

Stores will be allowed to operate by appointment only, with undefined “limited” hours, so it’s not perfect. It’s better, and I hope it can be continued to be improved to ensure Pennsylvanians access to their rights.”

North Carolina: “Wake County Sheriff’s Office just suspended ALL pistol permit applications due to “unprecedented demand for weapons.” They will not reopen applications in Wake county until APRIL 30th. They say they’ve seen a 250% increase in demand.”

New Jersey: “New Jersey governor Phil Murphy has ordered all gun stores in the state to remain closed during the declared state of emergency over the coronavirus.”

Apparently gun-grabbers believe gun stores are “non essential” businesses and that an “increase in demand” means they can suspend your rights. Figures.

And this is WHY we need the Second Amendment to protect ourselves (posted at 9:19 last night): “Police in Yakima, Washington now say they DO NOT KNOW how many inmates have escaped local jail, witnesses report at least 20.”

All but eight are “unaccounted for.”

Watch the video of the inmates (obviously not yet fully processed as they are still in civilian clothing?) escaping here.

Illinois mayor can ban booze and guns under coronavirus emergency act

Deborah Feinen using her powers…

Yeah, that won’t cause a panic. Oh, and they have ZERO confirmed cases in the city. Never let a crisis go to waste…

From NY Post: The Second Amendment be damned! At least an Illinois mayor seems to think so.

In an executive order, Champaign Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen declared a coronavirus emergency — not one case yet in the city of 87,500 — and included ordinances that let her ban the sale of firearms and ammunition as well as booze.

“None of the options will necessarily will be implemented but are available in order to protect the welfare and safety of our community if needed,” city Communications Manager Jeff Hamilton told local NBC affiliate WAND-TV.

Feinen let it be known that she is in charge. “So many of those powers, I have had from the beginning,” Feinen told WAND-TV. “All we have done is enumerate them and now the public is aware of them. So, I am the liquor commissioner. I can shut down bars yesterday, I could have shut them down two years ago. Nothing has changed with respect to that, it is just that we have laid it out, so people are aware of that. In respect to the other items that are listed in the attachment, they have been listed in the city code for 15 years.”

How can this be happening? Mass shooting in California at “celebration of life” event

California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. This includes age restrictions, gun registration, limit on ammunition purchases and red flag laws.

Last year Governor Newsom signed into law an additional 15 new gun control laws. He said at the time: “Gun violence is an epidemic in this country, one that’s been inflamed by the inaction of politicians in Washington. While Washington has refused to act on even the most basic gun safety reforms, California is once again leading the nation in passing meaningful gun safety reforms.”

How’s that gun control working in California? Yesterday’s headline: 1 Killed and 5 Injured, Including 7-Year-Old Girl, in Shooting at California Family’s ‘Celebration of Life’ Party.”

Details from Yahoo:

“A shooter fired multiple rounds at a gathering of people at an apartment in Tulare, Calif. on Wednesday night, killing one and injuring five others, including a 7-year-old child, according to police.

Tulare Police Sgt. Ed Hinojosa said during a press conference that the suspect opened fire at a “party or some type of celebration of life going on for somebody who was buried today that was apparently involved in a car accident a few days ago.” He added that there were about 50 to 60 people present.

A 23-year-old man has died and five others were injured: two men, two women and the 7-year-old girl, police have confirmed. The girl was being treated for multiple gunshot wounds and had been transported to Valley Children’s Hospitals. As of Thursday morning, no updates on her condition have been provided. The police department did not immediately respond to a request to comment from TIME.

As mourners left the apartment, the shooter approached a group outside in a front driveway, and opened fire. “We were all dancing, listening to music and drinking and the only thing I remember is hearing one shot, and then after that we heard like 10 rounds,” an eyewitness told ABC7 News. “Then everyone dropped to the floor and then we just heard screaming. Then after that everyone ran inside.”

“There was blood everywhere,” another eyewitness told local newspaper The Visalia Times Delta.

Hinojosa said police arrived to a “chaotic” scene after receiving several calls around 10:30 p.m. reporting multiple gunshots fired. He did not elaborate on a description of the shooter, but speculated that the incident could be gang-related.”

Not a gaffe: Joe Biden will go after gun industry and your guns

For me the Second Amendment ranks way up high of one of the issues that I really, really care about. Any candidate who promises to take away my guns is NOT going to get my vote.

Joe Biden is that candidate. He’s promised to “take down” the gun industry.

As reported by Breitbart in February:

“During a Monday night speech in South Carolina, Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden referenced gun manufacturers and said, “I’m going to take you down.”

Read their whole story here.

Biden also received the endorsement of Pancho Beto in which Biden appeared to seek the help of Pancho Beto in gun confiscation. From Twitchy:

“Joe Biden tells Beto, of “hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” fame that “you’re going to take care of the gun problem with me. You’re gonna to be the one who leads this effort.”

Read that whole story here.

Joe’s plan to chip away at the Second Amendment includes the following:

Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines; buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities; reduce stockpiling of weapons; and end the online sale of firearms and ammunitions.

Along with Joe’s plan to raise my taxes, I cannot support someone who seeks to destroy my 2A right. No way, no how, Corn Pop!

Demorats are truly ignorant: Former congressional candidate embarrasses herself with tweet about guns

This womyn – Saira Rao – actually ran for a congressional position in Colorado. She lost in the primary.

She thought she’d be clever with her tweet. So clever that she had to delete it.

And these are the type of demorats who want to run our country? Scary.

Posted forever on Twitchy.

Strict gun-controlled Chiraq: “Eruption” of gun violence in February

How’s Mayor Lightfoot’s “grand plan” to address gun violence going? Just as one with common sense would expect…

From MyFoxChicago: Overall crime in Chicago decreased in February 2020 compared to the same month last year despite an eruption of gun violence, according to statistics released by Chicago police.

Murders and shootings reported last month in Chicago were up from February 2019, police said in a statement Sunday. The 34 homicides reported in February were a 41% increase from the 24 reported the same month last year, while the 137 shooting incidents were a 25% increase compared to 109 in 2019.

So far in 2020, 68 murders were recorded in Chicago, police said. The number of shooting incidents came in at 274, with a total of 325 victims. The Sun-Times has also counted 68 homicides this year within city limits.

Last month’s gun violence included two mass shootings. The first was on Valentine’s Day when someone shot six people at an apartment in Parkway Gardens. On Feb. 25, one person was killed and four others were wounded when three males opened fire into an Avalon Park convenience store.

February also saw a weekend in which 11 kids were wounded by gunfire — at least three of them in accidental shootings. The weekend before that was the deadliest February weekend in almost 20 years with nine people killed in citywide shootings.

Meanwhile, more than 1,500 illegal guns were seized by officers so far in 2020, an increase of about 100 from the same period last year, police said. Of those seizures, 81 were assault weapons.

Overall violent crime — including murders, robberies, burglaries, thefts and motor vehicle thefts —were down by 3%, police said. Thefts saw a 13% decrease and burglaries dropped by 9% compared to the same period last year.

Lightfoot and interim Police Supt. Charlie Beck announced plans to add more police officers to the transit system after a multiple instances of violence were reported at CTA stations — including a fatal shooting Feb. 17 in the connecting tunnel at the Jackson station downtown.

Hours after that plan was unveiled, a man was shot by a Chicago police officer in an incident caught on video at the Grand Red Line station. The FBI is assisting the Cook County state’s attorney’s office’s investigation into the shooting with “possible criminal charges” looming.

Earlier in the month, a man who shot someone outside a Lake View bar was fatally shot by responding officers in an exchange of gunfire.

Santa Clara County DA’s office “gun grab” will have zero effect on gun violence.

Santa Clara County DA’s office “gun grab” will have zero effect on gun violence.  It’s just a “con job” to take guns from legal owner’s.

This is a follow up on DCG’s post Santa Clara County DA’s Office creates team to remove firearms from dangerous offenders.

The DA’s office of Santa Clara County(pop. 1,922,200) in  California has made the decision to remove firearms from “dangerous offenders”.  Besides felons they have included persons with restraining orders and people with a history of domestic violence.

Restraining orders– Anyone can get a emergency restraining order on anyone.  All a person needs to do is say “I think the person has a gun” when filing the restraining order.  Then by default, once the restraining order is filed, the person who is being restrained is supposed to sell their guns or turn them over to the police.  It does not matter if the person filing is making a false report.  The person still cannot be in possession  of a firearm.  They lose their gun ownership rights from 1 year up to 10 years, if not more.

The person is being punished for a crime they have not been convicted of. Guilty before proven innocent instead of Innocent until proven guilty.  They lose their gun ownership right and are being deprived of their rights. I would argue that this is a violation of  2nd, 5th and 14th amendments.

Domestic violence- Usually comes with a restraining order.  Domestic violence can be a felony or a misdemeanor.  Some common charges that fall under domestic violence are,

When a person who is charged for Domestic violence and has not been convicted, their rights are being violated in the same way as the person with a simple restraining order. The person is being punished for a crime they have not been convicted of. Guilty before proven innocent instead of Innocent until proven guilty.  They lose their gun ownership right and are being deprived of their rights. I would argue that this is a violation of  2nd, 5th and 14th amendments.

Felons- Don’t usually register guns so there is no way this move on taking guns from dangerous people will have any impact of felons having firearms.  The gun grab only takes guns from legal owners.

Gun owners associated with Domestic violence are being treated as a major threat to public safety.  We are being lead to believe that a large amount of firearm related deaths are the result of domestic violence.  We are being lead to believe that  taking guns from people accused or convicted  of domestic violence will end a large part of firearm deaths.  In California that just isn’t true.  The following is a quote from the L.A. Times after reviewing Los Angeles County(pop. 10,098,052)  Coroner’s records for 2018.

“Women are less likely than men to be killed in a shooting, but more likely to be beaten, stabbed or strangled. Female homicide victims also tend to be older, with a median age of 35, compared with 31 years old for men.”

“Last year, 114 women were killed in Los Angeles County, the highest number since the beginning of the decade, according to a Times analysis of coroner and law enforcement records. Meanwhile, the death toll for men, who make up the vast majority of casualties, declined dramatically to 523 from 755 a decade earlier.”

Considering there are at least 5,000,000 women is LA County, that number is still pretty low.  Overall, the amount of Homicides in LA county has declined.

In LA county almost 300 women have been killed in the last 3 years.  Almost half of them had a relationship with their killer at some point in time.

Here are some facts on the USA in 2017.

  • 2017 total population in the USA- 325,719,178
  • Total deaths- 2,813,503. Men 1,439,111. Women 1,374,392.
  • Suicide by firearm 23,854. 3,239 were women.,
  • Accidental discharge of firearms – 486. 63 were women.
  • Legal intervention- 616. 30 were women.
  • Assault (homicide) by discharge of firearms- 14,542. 2322  were women.(A little over half domestic violence related.) 
  • Undetermined- 338.

Total deaths connected to firearms- 39,773.  That is 1.41 % of deaths in 2017 with .041% connected to domestic violence where women were victims.

When compared to the total population in the USA,  325,719,178, Domestic violence  related deaths that involve firearms  happens to .00035644201459946% of the total population.  Firearm related deaths happens to .012210825363191% of total population. Both are hardly an excuse to violate a persons rights.

Laws are not going to stop domestic violence in the USA.  Not when you have religions like ISLAM, where beating and cutting the heads off of women is accepted.

Not saying Islam is the single cause of domestic violence. But it’s ideology promotes oppression of women.  This sort of influence  in Western  culture only fuels the opportunity for domestic violence.

Cultural diffusion promoting “old School” western values, teaching your children respect, manners, integrity, accountability, critical thinking, appreciation, compassion, courtesy,  loyalty, patriotism, the law, responsibility and to treat others like they would like to be treated would produce far better results than any gun control law.

 

 

If people are truly concerned with saving lives then they should focus their attention on the causes and cures relevant to deaths in the following images.

Second Amendment,

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”

“Shall not be infringed”.  Infringed definition is “to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another”.

That being said,  any changes to the Second Amendment, any modification that allowed any sort of gun control is unconstitutional and illegal.  The simple act of the change or modification  of the Amendment is a violation of our rights.  The changes are the infringement.

 

Respectfully,

Deplorable Patriot

Santa Clara County DA’s Office creates team to remove firearms from dangerous offenders

I’m all for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. What I’d like to see is stronger enforcement of current gun laws and harsher punishments for prohibited offenders.

Just serving a warrant can be dangerous enough for police. Can you imagine how volatile situations may become when trying to confiscate a violent criminal’s firearm?

Joe Biden says 150 million Americans killed by guns since 2007

Last night’s Democrat presidential (an oxymoron!) debate was another disaster. The Daily Mail has the perfect summary:

Democrats shout at each other, turn on ‘racist’ Mike Bloomberg and gang up on ‘unelectable’ Bernie Sanders in 6th messy debate – while the CBS moderators lose control so badly even Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell start arguing

But 77-year-old Joe Biden hit the homerun for the most outrageous comment. He said 150 MILLION Americans had been killed by guns since 2007.

The population of the U.S. is 329.3 million.

This means Biden believes nearly HALF (46%) of the population of the U.S. had been killed by guns — “carnage in our streets” — in the 13 years since 2007.

At this rate, the United States would soon be depopulated.

The man is certifiable senile.

If they really love him, Joe’s family should tell him to quit the race.
