NAACP president says government should seize guns to protect civil rights

Published

on

As I wrote yesterday following passage of an anti-Second Amendment gun-control bill by the Florida State Senate, there is a growing acceptance by our political overlords to not only create enormous obstacles for Americans wanting to buy a gun but to also come up with ways to seize guns from those who already own them.

While liberals repeat the feel-good mantra that gun seizures are necessary “for the children,” NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson believes that there’s another reason to seize them—protecting “civil rights” for “communities of color.”

In a recent opinion piece for BlackPressUSA.com calling for “sane, sensible laws to help eliminate or at least decrease the damage and death caused by gun violence,” Johnson rattled off the classic laundry list of liberal gun-control talking points:

  • Universal background checks on sales and transfers.
  • Banning military-style, semi-automatic assault guns.
  • Tough, new penalties for straw purchasers and gun traffickers.
  • Using the CDC to research gun violence as a public health issue.

Johnson then shoots down—pardon the pun—critics who might consider such government intervention “naively ambitious” by pointing out that “comprehensive, sustainable gun control is achievable” because Australia has done it.

Unfortunately for Mr. Johnson, his Australia example exposes the true motivation of anti-gun radicals. It’s not about the children or civil rights. It’s not even about “sensible” gun control. It’s about mandatory gun confiscation.

Following a mass shooting in 1996, the Australian government outlawed most guns and implemented a national gun registry. However, the pinnacle of their gun-control scheme was the implementation of a massive gun buy-back program where the government purchased up to one million guns financed by a special tax created for that purpose.

But as I said earlier, this isn’t about gun control.

Australia’s buy-back program was mandatory and a sweeping approach to gun confiscation. This compulsory program was paramount to gun-control efforts in the land down under. In a National Review article written in 2014 in response to Obama’s praise of Australia’s gun confiscation program, Charles Cook points out how the left conveniently leaves this little tidbit of information out of the debate to hide their true intentions.

“You simply cannot praise Australia’s gun-laws without praising the country’s mass confiscation program. That is Australia’s law. When the Left says that we should respond to shootings as Australia did, they don’t mean that we should institute background checks on private sales; they mean that they we should ban and confiscate guns. No amount of wooly words can change this. Again, one doesn’t bring up countries that have confiscated firearms as a shining example unless one wishes to push the conversation toward confiscation.”

Still, calling American individualism a “fetish-like obsession,” Johnson hails Australia’s “gun-control intervention” as an example of unity in favor of national safety and progress.

Unfortunately, Donald Trump wants to seize guns without due process, and Republicans in Congress are embracing gun-control because they are more concerned about protecting their jobs in November than they are about the Constitution, so we could be closer to adopting Australia’s gun laws than we realize.

    Who had the NAACP as the final square on their Gun Confiscation Bingo card?

    You won the game if so…

Houston library had Alberto Garza, a registered child sex offender, read stories to children for Drag Queen Storytime

Houston library had Alberto Garza a registered child sex offender read stories to children for Drag

Conservatives know the LGBTQ community has their say in most aspects of life in America today. Their political and cultural influence is unquestionable and public organizations jump through hoops to appease the various groups. Many libraries have even embrace “Drag Queen Storytime” as a way to teach tolerance to children by allowing transvestites to read stories to children.

Houston Public Library is one such progressive public organization that has embraced the practice. Unfortunately, they didn’t do anything to protect the children that visit the library by allowing “Tatiana Mala Nina” to read for the children. The problem arose because”Tatiana” is actually Alberto Garza, a 32-year-old child sex offender.

My Take

Houston Public Library has apologized. Is that really enough? Mistakes happen, but there are certain situations and jobs in which extra special care must be taken. Our public libraries, which are often considered to be truly safe places and popular venues for children to learn, should be able to give a reasonable expectation to parents that registered child sex offenders are not given explicit access to children.

This is gross negligence. I may be in the minority on this one, but this is a terminable offense in my books. Someone’s head should roll.

Keep in mind I rarely call for anyone to be fired for a single offense, but this is literally the worst case scenario for a library administrator. When you give someone access to the children that come to the library, they cannot be convicted child sex offenders. That’s sort of a no-brainer.

Nothing will likely happen beyond the apology, but here’s hoping.

So many exceptions are made for “alternative lifestyles” for the sake of tolerance. But when this tolerance allows a convicted child sex offender to have access to small children, the exceptions have gone way to far. This is absolutely unacceptable.

The truth about the Missouri bill mandating adults age 18-34 purchase AR-15s

The truth about the Missouri bill mandating adults age 18-34 purchase AR-15s

When news broke that a Missouri lawmaker put forth a bill that would require all adults aged 18-34 to purchase an AR-15 rifle, the reactions were exactly as one would expect. Unhinged leftists held their children tight as another Republican proposed turning every household into a death squad. Democratic lawmakers in Missouri were indignant and vowed to fight back. Some Republicans were like, “Heck ya!”

But it was all a ruse.

Representative Andrew McDaniel introduced House Bill 1108, known as the “McDaniel Militia Act,” in an effort to get lawmakers on the other side of the fence to argue against mandates. From his perspective, it’s not right to mandate United States citizens to do many of the things Democrats like to impose on us, so he reversed the situation to make them argue against the validity of forcing people to buy firearms.

It worked to some extent, though not nearly as well as one would hope. Democrats reacted more about the invocation of guns in general and the dreaded AR-15 in particular rather than focusing on the notion that people should be forced to do something against their will.

Another thing the bill has done was possibly unexpected. It demonstrated just how crazy many in the media perceive conservatives to be. Rather than see the obvious attempt to make a point, many in the media reported it as an expected action from the gun-toting right in a state that recently ousted its Democratic Senator. They researched the bill, attempted to counter it on its merits, and argued about what society would look like if such a bill were allowed to pass. Some were so riled up, they called for mobilization from around the country to stop this dastardly Republican from turning Missouri into a warzone.

Conservatives realize the chances of getting a gun law passed that restricts the 2nd Amendment are much higher than getting one passed that mandates its use by all adult citizens in a certain age group. We’re fighting to keep the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and never in history has that right been so close to being negated. This is why NOQ Report fights both the fake news media and the leftist push to take our guns. We’re crowdfunded for a reason.

We will never have a mandate to own a firearm because mandates to own anything are fought by those who would want firearms in the first place. But that doesn’t make this ruse any less enjoyable.

MS-13 stabs 16-year-old over 100 times, burns his body for trying to leave gang

MS-13 stabs 16-year-old over 100 times burns his body for trying to leave gang

Jacson Chicas fled El Salvador to get away from MS-13, according to his mother. But when they came to America, MS-13 was here as well and weren’t happy that he wanted to leave the gang. According to police, five gang members stabbed Chicas over 100 times before setting his body on fire.

The names of those accused of this horrible crime are Kevin Rodriguez-Flores, Jonathan Castillo-Rivera, Jose Hernandez-Garcia, Christian Martinez-Ramirez, and Jose Ordonez-Zometa.

My Take

The President got some heat from the sensitive left last year for calling MS-13 gang members “animals.” It may no longer be acceptable in modern society to place such labels on people, but that doesn’t diminish the reality that this heinous act was inhumane in the extreme.

It’s okay to call them animals. I won’t judge.

The streets are as dangerous as they’ve ever been. There was a time starting in the mid-80s and continuing until a few years after 9/11 that it seemed we were making headway in the fight against gang violence. But over the last five or six years, the numbers are turning again towards a rise in gang violence. It’s not isolated to the “bad parts of town,” either.

There are two major reasons this trend seems to be happening. First, the aforementioned “sensitivity” being leveled on anyone, even those who demonstrate no sensitivity or appreciation for human life, has turned many Americans into weeping willows hoping for the best in people despite clear evidence a stronger hand is needed. Second, the rise of visibility of police shootings has made many in law enforcement gun shy… in some cases literally. Rather than fighting the crime, it seems the new mission is to contain it. This is present in areas like Baltimore, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, among others.

Democrats have advanced their internal aversion to law and order to the point that potential candidate Joe Biden is being labeled “tough on crime” and somehow that’s being positioned as a negative to Democratic primary voters. NOQ Report will continue to highlight the absurdity of the left’s strange perspectives on crime, as part of our charter as a crowdfunded news outlet.

It’s imperative that we get the word out about these crimes. They don’t get the coverage they deserve from most in mainstream media because it runs contrary to their narrative that compassion is better than strength. It’s a joke.

Now more than ever, we need law enforcement to crack down on the crime that is rampant on the streets. As the left tries to neuter law enforcement, conservatives must stand behind them.
