Some Anti-Second Amendment Extremists Don’t Hide It Any More

Question and Answers Call Take Action Protest
Some Anti-Second Amendment Extremists Don’t Hide It Any More

United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- One thing that has become quite clear lately – anti-Second Amendment extremists no longer are hiding what they want. Some are openly calling for Australia-style gun bans. Others want the Second Amendment repealed. In a lot of cases, Second Amendment supporters are justified in perceiving hatred on the part of anti-Second Amendment extremists. This is both good news and bad news for Second Amendment supporters.

The Bad News

Let’s start with the bad news coming from this. The fact is, anti-Second Amendment extremists now feel comfortable calling for some of the most extreme parts of their agenda. In some ways, the Bruen decision left them with nothing to lose. The opinion pretty much strikes down a lot of their agenda, so why settle for half-measures, especially with the vocal calls from politicians to and left-wing pundits to expand the Supreme Court?

It isn’t just the more blatant attacks and defiance of the Supreme Court. Anti-Second Amendment extremists are looking for other avenues, including litigation – sidestepping the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act in some cases. The recent hearings over marketing is setting up a new line of attack – one that an anti-Second Amendment attorney general like Letitia James could use to bankrupt firearms manufacturers.

Then, of course, there is the ever-present threat of financial deplatforming and other forms of corporate gun control. Corporations are not bound by the Second Amendment, only the government. Worse, Second Amendment supporters are behind the curve on this front.

All is not lost, but there are going to be some very real challenges that Second Amendment supporters must address – and keep in mind, should the likes of David Hogg get the power they seek, they will not hesitate to blow up things like the filibuster to get what they want.

The Good News

There is good news, though – with anti-Second Amendment extremists calling for gun bans and repealing the Second Amendment, they have staked out extreme positions. In a sense, they have now handed us credibility because we have warned they wanted to take people’s guns for decades.

Their desire to blow up various institutions and guardrails can also be used against them. In some cases, this will require educating Americans about why certain safeguards and institutions were erected in the first place – but that can be done successfully, provided Second Amendment supporters come across as reasonable and respectful of their fellow Americans.

Furthermore, as things stand, their anti-Second Amendment extremism is going nowhere. So, they will be railing for stuff that doesn’t fly. That will force them to take measures that are, if you will, not exactly within the norms of democracy. We can literally turn to elected officials in states to properly handle financial deplatforming.

This shift in tone by anti-Second Amendment extremists will need to be dealt with. Part of it is going to require rhetorical restraint on our part despite what will be provocative statements by our enemies. If this shift is properly addressed, Second Amendment supporters could make huge steps towards consistently defeating anti-Second Amendment extremism via the ballot box at the federal, state, and local levels.

Someone needs to ask Letitia James how bankrupting Gun Manufacturers is going to remove guns from the hands of the brothers in her own neighborhood. Let’s ask the law abiding citizens in her own community, where her efforts should be directed instead of her sensationalistic political escapades.

Keep bringing in more corrupt politicians, illegals/refugees/asylum voters & a schism/chasm in society is baked into those results.

John, you’ve brought up “monkey pox” several times in this newsletter, it seems that our ancestors ,from biblical times right up to the sixties weren’t Enlightened, but they didn’t have aids nor monkey pox. The Enlightened generations since, well educated and neutered have brought about the end of normality as the world has always known it. Queer nation is killing itself off without Gods help.

But notice how the facts about how Monkeypox is spread are seldom or never mentioned. The CDC says over 95% of Monkeypox cases are caused by intimate sexual conduct by homosexual or bisexual males! So, I guess you could also call it “FaggotPox”!!

Voting has become a questionable process for many Americans, The party in power has already begun to suppress the midterms with the continued fear mongering .

Social Security and other socialist plans were created by the same administration that implemented the NFA of 1934.

Social Security was never a forced savings plan – it was forced wealth redistribution from the beginning.

The majority of Americans at that time loved Franklin Roosevelt and his totalitarian policies. They kept electing him over and over again until he died. The majority of Americans have wanted socialism for a long time, unfortunately.

Wild Bill

The Social Security Act and the NFA were not created by the administration. Both are acts of Congress.

JSNMGC

Let me rephrase:

Social Security and other socialist legislation were created by the same legislators who created the NFA of 1934.

Social Security and other socialist plans were encouraged and supported by the same administration who encouraged and supported the NFA of 1934.

Social Security and other socialists plans were signed into law by the same president who signed into law the NFA of 1934.

I’ve not written those things. Generalizations applied to a specific case is a logical error. Not even allowed in court.

You have made generalizations about young people, including using “the smart phone generation” phrase as part of the generalization.

Don’t you think it is a good idea for people who want more freedom to stop making generalizations?

I do not recall using the phrase “smart phone generation”. I think that you have me confused with someone else.

What makes you think that “smart phone generation” refers to young people? Perhaps that connection is due to your own prejudices.

JSNMGC

You could have written:

“You’re right JSNMGC, I did make a generalization about young people not hunting. I was wrong to do so.”

Wild Bill

When have you ever admitted it?

JSNMGC

I just indicated you were correct and I rewrote my comment about the social security and NFA Acts.

Don’t you think it is about time some people put away some of the myths (usually generalizations) and use this site more for activism?

There are a lot of young people in this country who are pro freedom.

There are a lot of people in “the north” who are pro freedom.

There are a lot of people in California who are pro freedom.

Wild Bill

I think that I want to converse with my friends; communicate events and conditions around the country; and tell a few jokes, but not manipulate people.

Well, then it should not be difficult to name a few. Or is this another generalized hypothetical.

I agree.

It was a scam, just like Medicare, to redistribute wealth – a core principle of Socialism (as is the progressive tax structure). I certainly don’t blame people who paid into it for wanting to get their money back.

As for all the other programs that illegal aliens and other who people didn’t pay into and from which they are benefitting, it’s all part of the plan to overload the system.

“it is the younger people that want guns taken away” ~ Mystic Wolf Mystic Wolf, if you look at the age of the people who are against firearm rights in 2022, you will see it includes people who are young and elderly.

they look at the face of brandon and this group and dont know they were anti rights when they were young people that want power dont want people who can stop them

Wild Bill

I’m thinking that you are on to something! Young persons who were anti Second Amendment … became old people and remained anti-firearm.

And the young persons that are anti-firearms, anti-Rights, anti-capitalism, anti-military, anti-police remain so as they pass through from young to old.

So absent an epiphany, whatever they are they will remain. We better get control of the schools… or they will be problems later.

Oldman

I agree to the extent where you said there will be problems later, however there are already problems now, and the schools are where it starts…..I saw an interview with some of the folks on Jesse Watters show where, as they were partying on spring break (break from what?) were asked who fought the Revolutionary War? One, mind you they asked about 20 kids, got it right. Everyone else just shrugged and giggled that they didn’t know. Has nobody ever heard the phrase that history repeats itself? You just can’t make this crap up…..

That is scary!

It was elected representatives, the executive, and courts that diminished Rights, not older folks.
It is nice to see a “older millennial” rising to the challenge, although I doubt that your broad generalization about older millennials is true.

Rule by mob is what this country has become. The very notion that if they disagree with an outcome, they ignore it, redefine it, reinterpret or invalidate by faux proxy. There are no longer absolutes when it comes to our Constitution. Even the sovereignty of the three branches of government are in question when politicians can manipulate or question decisions made by another.

They have forgotten who they work for /// once in office they learn to serve only the elite or their political career ends quickly.

Harold, the group of people who pushed the anti-firearm rights legislation that ultimately became the NFA of 1934 wanted far more regulation than what was included in the final bill.

Those people were all born in the 1800s.

The group included southerners (some who were farmers before becoming legislators).

The group included veterans who later became lawyers before becoming legislators.

The group included Republicans (some of the most extreme views were held by Republicans).

The group included people in law enforcement.

The real reason is simple. The government tried to use religion to harm the Citizens Liberty to drink, and the Citizens said no with violence like the 2nd Amendment recognized the need to do from time to time to protect Liberty. No different than the tyranny of the Church of England, that the Founder’s had to put down.
All gun control, is to protect the government’s enforcers and the government’s power. Armed Citizens can’t be forced to do anything, since we can say no to the enforcer.

Nobody had to fear them, since the private sector still kept them out of civilized areas. The 1934 gun laws were to destroy the 2nd Amendment, that those who valued Liberty just used on the government to repeal tyranny by law. Those who valued Liberty told the government and their enforcers No, and the best mode of communication to express that was fully automatic weapons and rough men using them. The government and its supporters used religion to justify tyranny by law with prohibition, and good Americans swacked them.
