Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement to Legislators & Anti-Gun Media, Come & Take Them

Come and Take Them I Will Not Comply
Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement to Legislators & Anti-Gun Media, Come & Take Them

USA – -( When it comes to the gun prohibitionists and their allies in the media, the ever-evolving metamorphosis of their tactics are merely one keystroke, or one television hit away from the new narrative they are creating.

Take, for example, a recent statement by Shannon R. Watts, the Bloomberg PR shill passing herself off as a regular house mom who has become the face of the anti-rights movement since the Sandy Hook murders.

During that interview, she laughingly told CBS’ Major Garrett, “Often people think that because we’re doing this work, we’re anti-gun or we don’t support the Second Amendment. Nothing could be further from the truth, said Watts. “This is simply about restoring the responsibilities that go along with gun rights.”

Of course, no sane, objective individual with a shred of intellectual honesty would be capable of believing that statement coming from the same person who also said this about Beto O’Rouke and the Democrat presidential candidates outright call for confiscation of Americans firearms:

“We’re hearing a lot of innovative ideas come out of the primary season, which is exciting for us, that these candidates are competing for the first time ever to see who can be the best on this issue, she said. “We’re thrilled to see all these ideas be put forward, and it’s really up to the voters to decide what is attractive to them. We need to look at the data to see what would be the most effective way to get those weapons off the streets.”

It’s important to mention that she made both of those comments in the same CBS interview. Nowhere but in an environment of biased media openly supporting the ideas of one political party over another would these conflicting statements go unchallenged by the interviewer, who also, no doubt, had to have been aware of the armed security who accompanied the subject of his interview.

That Watts interview on CBS was a glaring example of a major “news” outlet blatantly allowing the formation of an anti-rights narrative over its airwaves. Surely the interviewer, Major Garrett was aware of the anti-gun proposals of the Democrat candidates including Eric Swalwell, Beto O’Rourke, Kamala Harris, and “Kooky” Cory Booker, including the infamous battle cry of “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” to which Watts was clearly referring.

Roughly two weeks after the interview occurred, O’Rourke would leave the race with Kamala Harris to follow shortly afterward. Booker is likely next and Swalwell had already been kicked to the curb with his anti-American nuke-them rhetoric, weeks earlier. It is noteworthy that none of the candidates who chose to make the Watts-Bloomberg anti-rights gun control platform the centerpiece of their campaigns was ever able to poll above 2-3%. This did not go unnoticed by the rest of the field, Watts and her gun grabbers or the news media doing their bidding.

Queue the paradigm shift.

The networks and the campaigns themselves began to realize that the vocal anti-rights rhetoric might not be a good idea and began to conspicuously and rapidly drift away from the gun control topic in front of the cameras. In the two subsequent Democrat/Socialist debates held in Atlanta, GA (hosted by none other than MSNBC and the Washington Post) followed by another in Los Angeles , CA (sponsored by PBS Newshour and Politico) on Nov. 20th and Dec. 19th respectively, not one gun rights question about the previously hotly debated topic was asked by the left-wing moderators representing the left-wing “news” outlets.

Coincidence? Not likely. It’s a pretty safe bet that the leftist media and the campaigns are working in unison to stop the hemorrhaging and take a page out of the Joy Behar playbook of, “They should not tell everything they’re going to do. If you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take them away.” This sentiment fits nicely into rule number seven from Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals stating, “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”

Queue the 2A Sanctuary movement.

Shannon Watts and the professional gun prohibitionists are not happy about the new tactic of running silent. When open talk of gun confiscation goes dark, the hilariously self-proclaimed supporter of the second amendment gets a little edgy. This was evident by her recent statements in a panic press release from Everytown for Gun Safety. Watts said, “These so-called ‘Sanctuary Counties’ fly in the face of our Democratic norms and threaten to defy the will of the vast majority of Americans who support stronger gun laws.”

Watts, of course, is referring to the remarkable uprising of millions of Americans who are fed up and not going to be pushed around any longer. Most recently, in Virginia, where over 113 municipalities have said “no” and declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries where no new gun control laws will be enforced. For his part, Virginia AG Mark Herring has penned, at the request of another Democrat/Socialist, his opinion on the validity of the sanctuary status and his desire to implement whatever anti-rights laws they pass, the will of the people be damned.

Watts and Herring are facing a real “throwdown” by real people, not social media “likes” and “friends,” but rather real people, millions of them, who have stepped up and said, “Not here. Not today.” This frightening reality that free Americans will stand up in the face of this tyrannical behavior, with the support of their local elected officials and constitutional law enforcement, now has them reeling and resorting to writing threatening letters and press releases.

Watts and crew are learning what tyrants throughout history have always eventually figured out, one way or another, that freedom is the greatest threat to their despotism. That a free people will eventually rise to the challenge and defend themselves against an overreaching government and tyrannical threats made against their liberties. It seems they may be finding out the hard way that we’re in no mood to be ruled over and it’s possible they may be figuring out they’re on the wrong side of America’s history.

In the face of the 2A sanctuary movement that shows no signs of slowing down, no amount of media assistance will be able to spin them out of the mess they’ve created for themselves.

The righteous people of Virginia are telling the Democrats, “You want to dance? Then start the music.”


The FREEDOM People of Virginia need to RECALL these DemocRAT NAZI national communists in the “bloomberg/soros” bought and paid for party. BOOT these NAZIS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heed the Call-up

I will not willingly become a felon. If these bills pass, just as in NYS after the “SAFE” Act passed in 2013, those citizens did not comply, we will not comply. Just as in NYS, they will not know who we are, and can’t afford to arrest, prosecute and imprison us.

One of the most ironic parts of one of their most egregious bills is that it will also create felons out of LE and the military, since there are no exemptions under the “assault firearms” section of the proposal. I wonder who will be coming to arrest them?


Meet the vast left wing conspiracy against American liberty. When hillary coined the term “vast right wing conspiracy” she was reflecting her Hegelian roots by accusing her opponents of doing exactly what she and her tribe had been doing since the birth of the Progressive New Left. If you are expecting candor and truth from these people you are simply another sheep being led to slaughter. This is an existential war. The left denies your right to exist.

Deplorable Bill

If it walks like a duck, swims like a duck, quacks like a duck and flys like a duck then…. A tree is known by it’s fruit. You plant an apple tree and you can expect apples from it. Men are judged on what they say and do. Added to that is thought according to the LORD. Leopards can’t change their spots. If one is willing to legislate, judge, lawyer, enforce or fund treasonous law, (law that is repugnant to the constitution) then those persons are guilty of treason. Treason carries with it a legitimate, lawful and lethal penalty and… Read more »


Their actions are more accurately defined as committing federal-level Felony Perjury (which carries the death penalty, so the end result would be the same). Now, how do we find/get an honest/responsible District Attorney to indict these waste-of-human-skin circus clowns??


“All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” Marbury vs. Madison. The Supreme Court also noted in Presser vs. State of Illinois (1886) that “It is undoubtedly true that all citizens capable of bearing arms constitute the reserved military force or reserve militia of the United States as well as of the states, and, in view of this prerogative of the general government, as well as of its general powers, the states cannot, even laying the constitutional provision in question out of view, prohibit the people from keeping and bearing arms, so as to deprive the… Read more »


AZ, Our Legislators haven’t read the Docs, and have no clue or intent of keeping the Oaths they take 95% of them.They are takers not givers.


said Watts. “This is simply about restoring the responsibilities that go along with gun rights.” Guns have rights? I’ve been pretty responsible about my rights since I was in my early 20’s. And no one has ever died because I was carrying concealed even in places it was against the “law”. Which really wasn’t the case because the LAW says SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Now I carry concealed but don’t really worry about it if the firearm is seen because Arkansas is a “Constitutional Carry” state. (Whatever that is!)


I guess I just don`t care anymore what anti-gun laws pass. I will not comply.


Same here. The Left has stupidly pushed us to the limit, causing a large number of Americans to say “no more.” We are sick and tired of supposed “conservatives” negotiating away our rights to the Left. The second amendment, the only one that specifically states it SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED, is the most abused, regulated and marginalized right of all.

It looks like war over the future of our Constitutional rights.

One side has HUNDREDS of millions of guns & retired vets. The other side can’t decide which bathroom to use. I like our chances.

Heed the Call-up

Conservatives are not negotiating away our rights, RINOs are.


It has reached to the collective intelligence of those who are at the very least educated to the fundamentals of the US Constitution. The Democrats have weaponized our rights and created hysteria with bold faced lies: which do not reflect real world data. They have also obstructed armed guards in many of our public schools: despite the NRA School Shield Program of volunteers which has been on the table for years. The rhetoric has reached critical mass, and EVERY Democratic candidate for president is openly calling for gun seizure in the form of registrations, bans, and pre-crime enforcement. It violates… Read more »


The uneducated welfare class is winning elections. Houston, Texas just reelected a mayor who is on the record hiring a boyfriend for himself for $95,000 a year. For redirecting flood control money to personal projects. For giving 20% of federal grants to his old law firm for “administration.” The welfare class now owns Houston. Once the democrats take over the senate and the Whitehouse and put in place their war against fossil fuels, Houston will be the next Detroit. Bankrupt already, if you put pension obligations on the books, Houston may look like Chernobyl in ten years of democrats stopping… Read more »


The “PBS” supported this meeting? The “planned parenthood” supported the NAZIS in the DemocRAT national communist party. How can a GOVERNMENT SUPPORT/FUNDED ORGANIZATION SUPPORT AN ANTI-AMERICAN GUN-CONTROL NAZIS!!!!
President Trump, Please STOP the TAX supported FUNDING of these ANTI-American / Anti-FREEDOM / Anti-RIGHTS groups!!!!


Watts once referred to gun owners as cockroaches that need to be eradicated. O’Rourke threw back the curtain on confiscation and all the dems lined up behind him for support. You have to wonder just how passionate the Mad Moms would be if Bloomberg wasn’t footing the bill for their activism. Hard to be so vocal when you are paying the bill. And of course he had to buy the voters in VA to get his dem crowd elected.


If they are so mad, WHY not get the DEMONCRAPS to clean up those rat infested murdering cities led and not governed by Demoraps Government.
All the HIGHEST per capita murder rates are always highest in DEM strongholds.
Can anyone say Baltimore, D.C. Chicago,WHY?,because they are Black on Black murders and minority dead.The Dems do not care about the murders of those people, they only need them at election time.Just like abortion,60+ million murdered babies guess what color the Majority has been?.
You got it.


Very well-written and highly-accurate article!! Thank you.


Great article Sir!,the majority of law abiding want just to live our lives, and keep your mitts off the Constitution, and our Rights and liberties. We will continue to be what we have always been the backbone of America. Only problem is you dumb bastards have refused to let a sleeping GIANT lie. Well,guess what it’s “WOKE “now. That sleeping GIANT Japanese Admiral Yakamoto referred to after Pearl Harbor It’s here to stay.. No going back NOW,you are the minority,WE ARE Millions, and we are proficient. We are Ex mil,Ex LE, Spec Ops, etc,etc,etc.We are the Vets that fight your… Read more »


To see the blatant hypocrisy and obvious patent lies of Watts and the rest of the anti-gun/anti-constitutional left/liberals, just substitute “immigration laws” for gun laws in her statement regarding “sanctuary cities”. “These so-called ‘sanctuary counties’ (or cities or states) fly in the face of our Democratic norms (note the capital D as opposed to small case d) and threaten to defy the will of the vast majority of Americans who support stronger gun (immigration) laws”.


After reading this do you feel sorry for Jesus ? Another article by AP ,lol


Most know it, 99% of all Dems are stupid or liars, or ignorant.

Pa John

So the left is discovering – to their horror – that U.S. corporate media overall, and online social media in particular, does not accurately reflect reality when it comes to political anything. Who’d have guessed that the massive online social media corporations which censor, ban, “shadow ban”, and manipulate search results and so forth, all in order to stifle and eliminate political opinion they disagree with, would end up giving a seriously distorted view of the world? Imagine that. So as Trump’s approval ratings go up and up in spite of all of the left’s relentless coordinated attempts to destroy… Read more »


You’ve allowed socialist democrat anti gun weenies to be elected. The press IS representing the “will of the people.” If you don’t vote, then just shut up. Not necessarily you, Pa John, but “you” the readers here who have an excuse for not voting in EVERY election at EVERY level.


Just declaring a sanctuary is not enough. The Marxists will come for us one at a time, slowly and quietly. They will not roll up in tanks en-mass. You must be prepared to defend against the single intrusion, your neighbors must be ready to come to your aid when they knock on your door. You need to form small groups willing and able to stand together to STOP those individual arrests and confiscations. Groups of 10 or more are sufficient to stop local search and seizures against 2A supporters. Your group will need to ARM UP, and be prepared to… Read more »


I’m mad as hell–at Republicans and conservatives in America. The message here is clear: VOTE or be prepared for the socialist democrats to take over your life. I feel bad about what’s happening in Virginia–but not for Virginians. I feel bad that we may lose one more state to totalitarian socialist dictators. As to the Virginians, why didn’t all the gun owners vote in every election? They didn’t and now they’re crying about the result. If they had VOTED, they wouldn’t have to protest in the streets about what the people they allowed to be elected are doing! 124 million… Read more »

Heed the Call-up

Bowser, another question to ask is, like me, how many had their votes canceled by gerrymandering? My county district has a little curve into part of Richmond, VA, enough to overcome the county vote for that district. The Republican won by a good margin in the county, but the city vote wiped it out and then some. Even if 100% of the county part of my district voted Republican, the Republican would still lose by a large margin because of the city part.

Ansel Hazen

Bingo. This has occurred all over the country. Dems rewrite the districts so urban areas cancel the rural voters out. Just getting out to vote will do nothing if the cheating isn’t stopped. Every voting station in 2020 should have armed patriots watching over the ballot boxes and the clerks checking off the names.


I love that you don’t live here in VIrginia but you feel you’re well positioned, and informed enough, to pontificate on what is happening. Guess what scooter, we did get out and vote. We’re not crying. We’re doing what we the people have always done – dissented when the government seeks to operate beyond their scope. That’s why we’re working with the local governments to tell the aspiring tyrants that we won’t tolerate their efforts to undermine our rights. Get your facts straight before you presume to lecture us. Hell, why aren’t YOU getting off the couch and out from… Read more »


USA unfortunately I must agree, the front range of Colorado has been Californicated and the largest lefty voting block. Unfortunately welcome to red flag thank you to our POS gov, selling out your neighbor will become common practice.
