Will The Biden Regime Call Second Amendment Activism Misinformation?

White House/Silicon Valley – -(AmmoLand.com)- In the course of White House press briefings, Second Amendment supporters got good news, but they also found themselves facing a much greater short-term danger. The good news is that Jen Psaki probably handed enough evidence to prove that Silicon Valley has been acting as a proxy for the federal government to pretty much ensure former President Trump will win his court case.

The bad news is that Surgeon General Vivek Murthy has upped the ante over the short term by claiming that “misinformation” about COVID-19 is “an imminent and insidious threat to our nation’s health.” Of course, Murthy has a prescription that includes “suggestions” for social media companies.

Do you know what else has been described as a “public health” issue? The Second Amendment.

Remember how the Centers for Disease Control were pushing gun control? It was so bad Congress wisely pulled the plug on funding for that pseudo-science, much to the chagrin and anger of anti-Second Amendment extremists like Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), who want to take us back to the bad old days of politicized medicine.

(As an aside, the CDC’s blatant anti-Second Amendment propaganda may be a big reason why they aren’t entirely trusted with regards to COVID and vaccines. Let this be a lesson to Second Amendment supporters who, in this media environment must take a higher level of care about how we come across to our fellow Americans, like avoiding the use of dubious quotes.)

The big question is, of course, whether Murthy would declare activism for our Second Amendment rights as “misinformation” if CDC goes back into the business of being propagandists for gun control. We can’t put that past them, especially given how Silicon Valley censorship has affected things already.

Think about how CDC has suppressed information about the use of firearms for self-defense in the past. Or remember how Arthur Kellerman claimed that a firearm was 43 times more likely to be used to kill you than to be used for self-defense? Right now, if Murthy calls efforts to point out Kellerman’s BS “misinformation,” you can bet that Silicon Valley will be censoring in moments.

As we now know, Kellerman got that figure by only counting those homicides that were ruled self-defense. But as Massad Ayoob – or any other competent self-defense instructor – would quickly tell you, you don’t have to kill an assailant to have successfully defended yourself. Don’t take my word for it: The NRA’s Armed Citizen over the years has examples of armed bad guys fleeing or surrendering when they realize there is an armed good guy, with no shots fired by the good guy at all.

Second Amendment supporters need to urge their Representative and Senators to block any CDC effort to attack the First and Second Amendments in the name of “public health.” In addition, they need to work to defeat anti-Second Amendment extremists at the federal, state, and local levels at the ballot box as soon as possible.

Let’s see who can answer this question without being an asshole. You’re clearly quoting Murthy making a statement that he will not be a party to the demolition of the second amendment. And yet, here you are lambasting him for comments about COVID. Why not reward good behavior instead of bashing him for unrelated talking points?

Because he’s calling for censorship of opinions that do not match the administration’s opinions. It is difficult to claim you live by a “principle” that honors diverse viewpoints, except on certain topics where it demands orthodoxy.

This leads one to suspect Vivek in reality may have no such principle after all. Because it’s unheard of for a government functionary to say he is all for the Second Amendment before coming to power, then turn around and infringe the Second Amendment… right? Even Trump was guilty of that.

What we NEED is a MINISTRY OF TRUTH to decide these things! (That is sarcasm folks, as in George Orwell’s 1984 https://duckduckgo.com/?q=MINISTRY+OF+TRUTH&atb=v256-1&ia=web ).

The CDC is like a turd setting in the toilet, they need flushed . They lie about covid and gun violence daily . We have zero faith in the CDC , thier credibility is zero . The CDC went from 0 to 60 and back to zero in a year and a half of Covid . Nothing like spreading the lies that sunk thier own ship . Same thing applies with their false gun violence narrative !

Won’t be long before the Jiao Xiden regime declares 2A activism “insurrection” and “treason”… which means NRA has nothing to worry about. They’re Not Really Activists.

Meanwhile, I’ve started writing a children’s book, I’m calling it
“The NRA Executive Vice President’s New Clothes”.

everything is misinformation if it doesn’t fit your narrative. misinformation is a very subjective term, much like AZ says, leftists twist the meanings of words that have been used for hundreds of years or redefine them to suit their propaganda needs.
i don’t want to force someone to purchase and carry a firearm. why do leftists want to prevent me from doing the same.
it is morally wrong to tell someone what they can or can’t do. sounds kind of like slavery doesn’t it?

Hey Harold: how about an article speculating whether the NRA will finally out themselves as anti-2nd Amendment?

The Left is already trying to co-opt language and redefine words, all to create a “public health crisis” supposedly “caused” by guns.. Examples: gun violence, gun violence epidemic, gun safety laws, common sense gun laws, etc. The fact is, we had just 3,000 fewer annual murders 90 years ago, with 200 million fewer people and 250 – 300 million fewer firearms. The murder rate has declined drastically, while gun ownership exploded. We love in a post-Constitutional America run by socialists who want a monopoly on firearm ownership and violence. It is time for a national divorce, or a forced reset… Read more »

You touch on a very important point; the government’ desire to have a monopoly on the use of force. We the People cannot allow the government, even a “good” government, that monopoly.

I’m not sure there is such a thing as a ‘good’ government. Only one that is afraid of what will happen if the people get ticked off.

A good government is only one election away from a bad government. Anyone who flips a coin and expects it to come up heads every time is an idiot.
