Generally speaking, Democrats want to take away your guns. They have for a while now but they kept those intentions secret over the last decade or so. But now, they no longer pretend to be defenders of the Second Amendment. Today, it’s impossible to be a Democratic lawmaker who doesn’t support unconstitutionally curtailing our right to keep and bear arms.
There is already legislation that’s making its way through Capitol Hill to make it harder to buy firearms. But that’s the tip of the iceberg, the opening volley into a protracted war against our rights. As I noted in the past, I believed that they were waiting for the next mass shooting in order to get the ball rolling through emotional responses, but it seems like they’re laying down the groundwork already.
Instead of waiting for a mass shooting, they’re using the partially manufactured excuse of “domestic terrorism” to make their opening play. It’s not that there isn’t domestic terrorism afoot, but Antifa and Black Lives Matter tend to use improvised weapons and burn buildings instead of taking shots at people. That’s not always the case, but there have been fewer firearms in their attacks. Nevertheless, Dianne Feinstein and company are already pushing forward a new bill.

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Cam Edwards from Bearing Arms and the Second Amendment Foundation. Both organizations do what they can to protect our Second Amendment rights and Edwards is one of the nation’s staunchest defenders. It was an enthralling interview that gave great insights into what’s coming down the pike.
Among the many issues at hand is the attacks on “assault rifles.” Even if we willfully ignore the lack of a proper definition for the term (after all, Democrats ignore the fact all the time), we cannot ignore that even the most “assault-rifley” firearms like AR-15s are protected. The government cannot have sole authority over firearms that are intended to help us defend against both crime and tyranny. There are numerous instances in which “assault rifles” were used by good guys to protect against bad guys with similar firearms.
But at the core of the issue is that there are already plenty of laws on the books that are not being properly enforced. Invariably, we learn that the vast majority of crimes that involve firearms are done so by people who either cannot own a firearm or possess on illegally. As the logic goes, new gun laws will only hurt law abiding American citizens. The criminals will only be empowered and emboldened by addition restraints on our lawful rights.
In this episode of NOQ Report, I broke down some of the other things that we need to see as I discussed the future with Edwards. We also discussed ways that activists can participate in helping to preserve the Second Amendment at the local, city, county, and state levels. We may have a harder time dealing with Washington DC for at least the next two years, but we have recourse within our republic to take action locally.
They say that if the Second Amendment falls, there will be no way for us to defend any of our other rights. We are facing the greatest threat to the Second Amendment that we’ve seen in our lifetimes. We must act now.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.

The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 11,000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
