John Kasich makes push for gun control

Ohio Governor and former presidential candidate John Kasich is pushing for gun control again. This time, his plan is to bring together “reasonable people” to bring about limits to the 2nd Amendment.

“My purpose is to get people who respect the Second Amendment but can agree there are some limits to it, to sit in a room to develop policy I can pass on to the leadership in my legislature,” he said. “Without this process I’m not convinced we’ll make progress. I know just arguing back and forth not working.”

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Kasich highlighted recent events in Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs to promote the idea that we need to limit gun rights. He repeatedly mentioned respecting the 2nd Amendment while invoking a need to curtail it.

“Ohio is a place where people want to solve problems,” Kasich said. “They’re willing to listen. I want to get a group of reasonable people, pro-gun people. And those who favored limits on gun ownership. I want to put ‘em in a room and see if we can find common ground.”

Kasich has been rumored to be considering another run for the White House in 2020:

John Kasich wants to ruin 2020 like he ruined 2016

https://noqreport.com/2017/10/20/john-kasich-wants-ruin-2020-like-ruined-2016/There’s currently speculation that his aloofness about running may be a sign that he’s considering it. Duh. There’s also a report that he met with foreign policy advisers yesterday. Unless Ohio is considering declaring war on Iceland, this isn’t just speculation anymore. Governor Kasich is intending to run for President in 2020.

Thankfully, that doesn’t necessarily mean he will. His intention in 2017 is irrelevant when we consider the earliest he could possibly make it official is still a year-and-a-half away. That means there’s time to knock some sense into him. There’s time for him to find other ways to raise money other than running a corrupt campaign. There are other ways for him to stay in the public spotlight he craves other than putting Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren in the Oval Office.

My Take

No serious 2nd Amendment advocate wants someone to carry a minigun into an elementary school, but there are plenty of laws on the books that are intended to prevent abuse of the right. The challenge is with the domino effect. Once we start giving in to the emotional calls for limits to the 2nd Amendment, we will see further actions popping up as a result.

Most gun control groups don’t want to stop at bump stocks and clip limits. They want to take away as many guns as possible… if not all of them. Giving in a little will lead to them taking much, much more. Kasich’s heart seems to be squarely stuck in the middle where he’s always been politically. He wants to toe the fine line between the two parties and try to build a bipartisan coalition to support him. It won’t work, but there’s still much damage he can do along the way.

Gun grabbing is a process that starts with ‘common sense’ measures and leads to oppression

http://noqreport.com/2017/10/04/gun-grabbing-process-starts-common-sense-measures-leads-oppression/It’s important to understand the speed at which things change in society today because the vast majority of Americans cannot imagine the need to defend themselves against oppression from within. We assume that the government has our back and will always have our back as long as we pay our taxes and don’t rip the labels off our mattresses. It’s unfathomable that circumstances may arise that convinces the government we’d all be better off if they seized more control, Constitution be damned.

    I say we put HIM in a room with Ted Nuggent and Dana Loesch and see how that works out.

      Spot-on. “Common Sense Gun Control” = next step in plan to confiscate all guns from civilian hands except for the elite.

      What part of “shall not be infringed” do these yahoos not understand? It does not say, “infringed only a little bit”, “infringed by application of common sense gun laws” it says most clearly “shall NOT be infringed”

Video Double play: Busting the gun grabber’s musket myth.

Published

Gun confiscation bingo

Two videos that eviscerate the Liberty Grabbers ‘One shot’ musket myth.

It is a bedrock principle (if they have any) of the Liberty grabber Left that back during the ratification of the US Constitution the only weapons in existence were flintlock musket that took 5 minute to reload. Thus there wasn’t any school violence because it would have taken too long for the perpetrator to kill anyone.

As it typical of the lore of the national socialist Left, this is a lie of the first order. A previous video celebrated the “Assault Weapon” tricentennial, which was bit of the tongue in cheek variety since there were other repeating “Military Style” weapons in existence before this time period. These will be detailed in future articles. Meanwhile we present two videos that also bust the ‘Musket Myth’, one a short presentation from the Royal Armouries on the Jover and Belton “Flintlock breech-loading superimposed military musket”

Royal Armouries
Published on Aug 30, 2017
Curator of Firearms, Jonathan Ferguson, gives us a peek at the Flintlock breech-loading superimposed military musket, by Jover and Belton (1786)

This is a very relevant piece since the inventor Joseph Belton corresponded with the Continental Congress in 1777:

May it Please your Honours,
I would just informe this Honourable Assembly, that I have discover’d an improvement, in the use of Small Armes, wherein a common small arm, may be maid to discharge eight balls one after another, in eight, five or three seconds of time, & each one to do execution five & twenty, or thirty yards, and after so discharg’d, to be loaded and fire’d with cartridge as usual.

“It was demonstrated before noted scientists and military officers (including well known scientist David Rittenhouse and General Horatio Gates)”

This destroys the mythology that the founders had no knowledge of this type of repeating firearm technology that existed already.

The second is a humours dissertation on the subject from video raconteur Steven Crowder https://www.louderwithcrowder.com/

from a few years ago that also eviscerates this bit of Leftist mythology.

Published on Feb 10, 2015
People have been telling us for years that the 2nd amendment was written in a time of Muskets, and that it doesn’t apply to the evolved weapons of today. Is it true?

So why is this important?

Two primary reasons. One that these factual examples demonstrate that the founding fathers knew of these technological advances. Therefore, they destroy any Leftist pretences that the 2nd amendment be confined to muskets. Second that, school violence is something other than an issue of guns.

Final pieces of the puzzle voiding the Second Amendment are ready to put in place

Published

on

It’s no mystery to the majority of liberty-loving Americans that politicians of every political stripe have been working feverishly to find new ways to restrict or eliminate our constitutionally protected God-given rights. And there has been perhaps no greater effort in their politically correct but unconstitutional agenda than their attempts to void in word and/or deed our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

While attempts to restrict gun ownership have existed throughout American history, the current movement got its footing from the National Firearms Act of 1934 (NFA). This law, a response to gangland crime during Prohibition, established a framework for the federal government to regulate specific types of firearms and accessories, and it imposed a tax on the manufacture and transfer of firearms defined by the Act.

Though amended by the Gun Control Act of 1968 to address a flaw that nearly voided the NFA, the law has been used to curtail, if not prohibit, transactions involving firearms identified in the 1934 law. Since 1968, the Firearms Protection Act of 1986, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993, and the NICS Improvement act of 2008—which “improved” background checks required under the Brady Law—have also been added to the NFA.

As you can see in this very brief timeline, the old “slippery slope” adage is true. And in the aftermath of recent shooting events at public schools, the final pieces of the puzzle to void the Second Amendment are ready to put in place.

For example, the omnibus spending bill passed by the GOP-controlled Congress and signed into law by Donald Trump in March included the Fix NICS Act, a bill introduced by Republican Sen. John Cornyn. This so-called “improvement” to NICS gave the government power to deny gun rights to individuals for something as minor as a traffic ticket, and it laid the groundwork for the establishment of a FBI database of all gun owners.

With Fix NICS in the books, and with Republicans and Democrats in one accord on gun control, Washington is ready to take the next logical step toward voiding the Second Amendment—a Nazi Germany-style gun registry. If successfully made into law, these proposals will give the federal government complete control over every gun and gun owner in America, thus giving our Big Brother overlords the power they need to eliminate private gun ownership entirely.

Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) has introduced the Crime Gun Tracing Modernization Act, a bill that will require the federal government to establish a “searchable, computerized database” of all records pertaining to the sale, importation, production, or shipment of firearms. Though he hasn’t advocated a database system “yet”, Nelson’s GOP opponent, Gov. Rick Scott is equally as dangerous following his strong anti-gun position since the Parkland, FL high school shooting.

In the House of Representatives, Democrats have introduced the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act. If passed, it would prohibit gun ownership without a license and would require a valid firearms license to transfer and receive a gun. The bill would also require the US attorney general to maintain a “federal record of sale” system to track every gun purchase made in America.

From laws denying gun rights to adults under 21 years of age to the growing acceptance—even in Washington—of using Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO) to seize firearms from individuals who haven’t broken any laws, many Americans have already lost their Second Amendment rights.

If anti-gun politicians in Washington have their way—and with no Constitutional conservative coalition to stop them, they might—all of America will soon know the reality of living in a country without a Second Amendment . . . and without liberty.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo takes ERPO laws up a notch; will use teachers to seize guns

Published

on

The anti-Second Amendment hysteria by left-wing extremists and the media—but I repeat myself—has reached a fever pitch following recent incidents of gun violence at public schools as it breathes new life into a punch list of Constitutionally questionable laws designed to completely disarm America.

One such law gaining momentum is the Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO). By taking one part “big government knows best” and adding a heaping cup of “for the children” with just a dash of “mental health crisis” for seasoning, progressives in both parties have created the perfect recipe to satisfy their appetite for killing the Second Amendment and denying us our God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

An ERPO empowers family members and the police to seize guns from anyone they feel poses a danger to themselves or others simply by obtaining a judge’s order—an order that doesn’t require testimony from the “accused” which is a violation of our Constitutional rights. No warrant. No charges. No arrests.

After the Parkland, FL high school shooting earlier this year, Gov. Rick Scott—currently the GOP candidate for US Senate—joined forces with Republicans who had already joined forces with Democrats to pass a host of anti-gun laws, including ERPOs. In the months that followed, GOP governors in Vermont and Maryland also passed ERPO laws.

Earlier this year I wrote in an article about how mental illness is being used to deny gun rights, and I shared a story about an ERPO being used by police in Seattle, WA to forcefully confiscate the guns of a man because his neighbors didn’t like that he “stared” at them while legally wearing a holstered firearm.

Besides the fact that ERPOs are becoming one of the greatest threats to our Constitutional rights, they are also serving as the grease for the slippery slope we are taking toward tyranny, as we see in the recent proposal by NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo plans to introduce a proposal to the state legislature for a law that will allow teachers to petition a judge to remove guns from the homes of “troubled students.” Under his expansion plan for ERPO, teachers and school administrators would be granted legal standing to petition a court to remove firearms from the homes of students considered a threat to themselves or others. The teacher’s union loves this idea.

If it becomes law, the next time a child acts up in a NY school SWAT teams could be knocking down the door where they live to disarm the parents. And with the way ERPO laws are gaining acceptance—including in Washington DC—it could happen where you live too.
