This is something to ponder. It's a great example of what the US will look like when the Democrats ban guns and come to get them.

This is why we cannot let the dimorats succeed in taking over and implementing their gun control ideology!

If yall share this post make sure you share the entire thing not just the link.

Why we must resist gun control and additional "Common Sense Gun Laws"! This is what happens when you take the guns away from the citizens! Folks, dont kid yourselves, this is coming here!

Violent Crimes are down. Modern Semi Automatic Sporting Rifle ownership and use is up! Some points to ponder!

Violent Crimes are down. Modern Semi Automatic Sporting Rifle ownership and use is up! Some points to ponder!

Think about that and compare it to the messages you hear and see from the Corrupt mass media and their propaganda aka news organizations! Facebook has banned and muted several pro gun pages this last week in an attempt to silence firearms owners! Think about that!

This is proof that the anti Constitution gun grabbing liberals are not worried about facts. This proves once again, just like when we were the battling the renewal of the 1994 assault weapons ban back in 2004, that this gun control legislation is not fact based legislation, but feel good legislation.

I mean, look at how the anti Constitution gun grabbing liberals have stolen OUR language by defining our firearms with words designed to elicit fright and angst amongst the sheep: assualt weapon. Weapon of war, high capacity magazine! They chose these words to describe the modern semi automatic Sporting rifle simply to generate A negative emotional response. As suede is critical that we never use their words and that we correct are going on in friends when they use the language of the left wing liberal anti gun crowd.

Violent crimes are down. Modern semi automatic sporting rifle ownership and use is up. Banning standard capacity magazines and the modern semi automatic sporting rifle will have no effect on criminal activity and violent crime. We all know that liberals and democrats never let facts stand in the way of their goals.

It is time to be calling our Congress critters and let them know that we will not accept any anti 2nd amendment gun banning and magazine banning legislation. It's time to remind them that we are here and that we will vote them out of office if they support any anti gun legislation. It's time to remind them that not only do we vote, but our friends and family vote also and that we will all hold them accountable.

Mass non compliance!

Mass non compliance!

Think about all the bumpstocks sold and delivered. . . . .consider that only 582 were turned in.

I have to say that i am proud of my fellow gun owners. Good for you. Laws that are stupid and ineffectual are simply not going to be followed and that's a strong statement in and of itself.

The real issue is that we should never have let this happen in the first place. We now have hundreds of thousands of law abiding citizens who are committing a felony. Think about what's going to happen when they pass the next AWB. That's coming on Wednesday!

Think about it. Contact your congress critters on Monday!

Have you downloaded a thermal weapon sight app for your Iphone or Android phone? Have you used it? How about other firearms Apps? The government may soon have ALL your information.

So, in the interest of prosecuting ITAR violators, the government is demanding that Apple and Google turn over the names and information of everyone who has downloaded this app.

Think about this. The government is going to know the private information of everyone who has downloaded this app. The government will get the device, both the weapon sight and phone information. Location of use and other data.

They will get all information that google/Apple has on you.

They will know who has firearms as an inference.

The will know your email, credit card and mobile device information. Everything that Google and Apple have on you.

So what should you do if you have bought and sold one of these devices and you get contacted by an agent? I suggest you not talk to the agent without your lawyer present! Just tell them that you want your lawyer present and that you will not talk without your attorney being present. And then keep your mouth shut!

Think about this. How many people use this app? How about the Pulsar Stream Vision App?

How many firearms apps are we, as firearms owners, downloading and running?

The government could narrow the request down to foreign users. But they are not doing so. There is a reason.

It's getting to be BoogaLoo time! Once again, if you had any doubts, this proves that they really are going to come door-to-door and get your guns that were previously legal. With the stroke of a pen and administrative agency can just decide that your guns weren't marked correctly and come confiscate them. Or maybe they just decide that they don't like the way they were designed and manufactured so they are magically machine guns today.

The government giveth and the government taken away! They really are coming to get your guns. Today it's the AA-12. Tomorrow?

So, once again, Trump's BATFE have decided to change their minds after twenty years of AA-12 manufacture and start going door to door confiscating AA-12 semi auto shotguns and post 86 dealer sample Machine guns.

Now, these are expensive weapons. The post 86 dealer samples sell for $15 to $20k and the semis are running around $4k.

So, why are they coming to your door and your favorite FFLs shop?

Well, because
1. The BATFE, have decided that they, as a goverment agency who makes this up as they go along, dont like how the post 86 Machine guns were marked by the manufacturer 10 years ago!
2. The BATFE, have decided that they, as a goverment agency who makes this up as they go along, after approving the semi auto designs 20 years ago, are magically machine guns. . . . . that these AA-12s can be converted to a machine gun too easily so every one of these semi autos are now magically machine guns! I guarantee you at some point they will be coming for your M1 carbine so get ready.

So, what do you do? The reality is that your only real option is to surrender under protest and sue them.

Why do they want it voluntarily turned in? Well, because it is more hassle to go the other route. The reality is that the agents will leave with those guns at that time anyway.

So get the word out to everyone and make sure they know the ATF is looking for the semi auto AA-12s simply because they have decided, 20 years later, they they are machine guns.

It's coming! The bill permits continued possession of, but prohibits sale or transfer of, a grandfathered standard capacity magazine.

It's time to call yiur congress critters and have your friends call their Congress critters and tell them No!

Time to call your congresscritters once again. Tell them to vote no on HR 1186. Remind them that it must not leave the committee!

The House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a vote on the Magazine Ban for Sept. 4. That's less than two weeks from now!

The vote is on HR 1186, the bill to ban standard capacity magazines

State's rights takes another hit. As does the 2nd Amendment! Brought to you by the administration that turn bump stocks into machine guns with the stroke of a pen. Does anyone reading this still have any misconceptions about how important the Second Amendment is to the Republicans?

I'm sure this doesn't surprise anyone with half a brain. Did the Supreme Court just refuse to review the convictions of two canvasman convicted of violating federal law my possessing a silencer that was made wholly in their state of residence. In other words there's no interstate commerce involved. The States said it was legal and the federal government put them in jail.

Isn't it funny that the federal government will not prosecute violations of federal drug laws regarding marijuana because sad to say liberals supported Endeavor. However, when it comes to gun control they are all over it.

Bump Stock Rule Puts Constitution In The Crosshairs

Where is the outrage from gun owners over bump stocks? Does the pro 2nd Amendment krowd not see the dangers of what just happened?

Administrative agencies show no qualms about turning law-abiding citizens into felons. Allowing DOJ to write criminal laws without Congress thus risks terrifying consequences. If DOJ can create the bump stock rule, what stops it from bypassing Congress to create criminal laws on other subjects?

One can only hope that the Supreme Court actually agrees to hear this one!

I would really like to see this case heard after Trump replaces the notorious RBG. It would have a better chance overturning the National Firearms Act. This is the case of Kansas man convicted of an NFA violation.

The real question is whether the court will agree to hear the case from the 10th circuit or not. Most cases that are appealed to the Supreme Court are denied search in other words the court chooses to not hear the case and render a verdict. If this happens, the conviction and the Judgment from the 10th circuit will be upheld.

It's about time for some common sense gun policies. Like arming teachers to put an armed, immediate hard barrier between our kids and the armed bad guys.

See by Ash owned by the media and Reporting on these mass shootings is astounding. It is 100% agenda-driven And that agenda is Banning civilian ownership of firearms. It does not matter that everything that the anti-second amendment crowd wants to do will not solve these problems.

It is about time that our elected law enforcement officials figured this out. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Randomly armed teachers are the best tool to defend our children with.

CBS News: Sheriff leading Parkland shooting probe supports arming teachers.

It's that time again! The Dems won the house and filed a Draconian gun ban legislation. Read this from TexasGunTrust and call your elected reps. Let them know That you oppose the legislation!

It's time once again. Call and email your Representatives and Senators! Get ready for more. This is simply the first of many threats.

Elections actually do have consequences. With the Democratic sweep of the house, they wasted no time in proposing Draconian anti-second Amendment legislation.

It was introduced by Frank Pallone Jr. Sponsor. Representative for New Jersey's 6th congressional district. Democrat. No surprise there.

A lot of my clients and friends tell me that we don't have anything to worry about because we hold the Senate and President Trump sits in the White House.

I constantly have to remind them that it doesn't take too many turncoat Republicans to flip and pass a bill like this and put it on the president's desk. We should all remember that President Trump supported the 1994 and later the 2004 assault weapons ban and Democratic gun control not so many years ago.

I have been listening to people in the gun community tell me for years not to worry because the Democrats and Anti-2A groups are not "coming for your guns". These statements and beliefs are factualky i correct because the Democrats and the anti-second amendment groups have come out and plainly said that their goal is the confiscation of all civilian owned firearms.

Take the time to actually read this proposed bill. It is far reaching. It would basically gut the entire firearms industry. Most people are very tempted to say that it's not as bad as we are making it out. That it doesn't really ban all that stuff. Well let's look at what this bill actually does.

This bill bans, either directly or by implication the following:
1. Machine gun parts kit
2. Assault weapons parts kit
3. The marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications,
4. Prohibition of advertising do-it-yourself assault weapons.
5. Requires homemade firearms made after 1968 to have serial numbers,
Other items banned due to the briad definitions in this bill:
A. Triggers, hammers,
B. bolt carriers,
C. springs,
D. stocks,
E. bolts,
F. barrels,
G. rails
H. Muzzle brakes and flash hiders
I. Magazines
J. 80% lowers and frames
K. 3D printed firearms and parts

"the term assault weapon parts kit means any part or combination of parts designed and intended to enable a consumer who possesses all such necessary parts to assemble a semiautomatic assault weapon;

"the term machinegun parts kitmeans any part or combination of parts designed and intended to enable a consumer who possesses all such necessary parts to assemble a machinegun or convert a firearm into a machinegun;"

Read and ponder the two definitions above. Let that sink in. Then try and convince yourself that everything, every part, that goes into building a semi-automatic rifle pistol or shotgun would not be affected by this bill.

The ban on Advertising through any media will be enforced by the Enforcement by the Federal Trade Commission. So the Liberals are bringing in yet another Federal agency to regulate Firearms. Think about the mess that the batfe has made of firearms regulation.

If a firearm was made at home after 1968, it will have to be taken to a local FFL and given a serial number. Think about that. Everyone who has Hilton 80% lower, or made something from scratch, will have to go pay an FFL to register that and give it a serial number.

Democrats continue to push the “assault weapon” narrative. The Modern Semi-automatic sporting rifle and other semi automatic firearms are not assault weapons.

The use of the term Assault weapon" Is a simple, yet powerful emotional plea. It's effective in deceiving people. Remember, we have let the Democrats take over the language of the Second Amendment and they use their own words to scare moderates into thinking that guns are bad. That is why we NEVER, as gun owners and second amendment supporters, use the word assault weapon unless we're talking about a true machine gun.

Once again, the anti 2a Democrats are testing the waters and testing our resolve as gun owners and 2nd Amendment supporters.

They want to see if our Resistance to anti-second Amendment legislation has wavered after all these years.

Make sure that you call your congressman and your rivers and let them know that we are aware of what the Democrats are trying to do and that we oppose it and will remember their choices at the next election cycle.

The title of the bill:

"To prohibit the sale, acquisition, distribution in commerce, or import into the United States of certain firearm receiver castings or blanks, assault weapon parts kits, and machinegun parts kits and the marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications, to require homemade firearms to have serial numbers, and for other purposes."
