How You Can Combat “Gun Violence”

From The Federalist:

The obvious political response to this deliberate cultural and social destruction is to vote Republican, warts and all. Parents and working families of all races are indeed fleeing the Democratic Party, which has been captured by leftist ideologues.

The next practical personal response to rising crime and cultural disintegration is to prepare to protect yourself, your family, and your community. The 2020 riots sold a lot of guns to normal people who realized their government might not protect them. And many gun owners decided to become dedicated to training for the same reason.

Academic Law Paper on the Essentialness of the Second Amendment

From Josh Blackman:

Constitutional litigation over the Second Amendment has followed a familiar pattern. In the decade since Heller and McDonald, countless cases have turned on a foundational question: how much danger does the weapon pose? But in 2020, the courts were suddenly presented with a novel constitutional question: how much danger does obtaining the weapon pose? During the COVID-19 pandemic, state and local governments enacted complete prohibitions on the acquisition of firearms. Willing buyers were ready to comply with all extant gun-control regulations. But these governments shuttered firearm stores completely. These policies were adopted not to stop the sale of guns but to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. In short order, these governments deemed the Second Amendment as “non-essential.”

FBI Incriminated In Whitmer Kidnapping Plot, Questions Remain About Jan. 6

From American Greatness:

But an anti-lockdown protest in April 2020, which involved “Thor” and presumably other FBI assets, draws even more comparisons to January 6. Wearing a wire, “Thor” went to Lansing on April 30 to meet up with members of the “Wolverine Watchmen,” alleged militia members who would later be charged in the kidnapping scheme. After “Thor” communicated with his FBI handlers, according to a BuzzFeed investigation into the case, “something surprising happened. The Michigan State Police stood down and let the protesters—including those in full tactical gear—enter the building unopposed. They could even bring their guns.”

Fenix Ammunition Takes A Stand Against Selling To Police

From En Bloc Press:

Fenix Ammunition shared a Penalty Notice from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on Twitter the other day. Apparently a police officer “was dispatched” to their business in November of 2020. What prompted this dispatch is unclear. The police officer, Matthew Chaylaszek, reported seeing a sign on the door that read “We do not wear masks, make your own decisions.” Chaylaszek says he entered the shop and saw the owner, Justin Nazaroff, unmasked and helping a customer. Now, come January, they’ve been fined $1,000 by the State of Michigan for the mask violation. As a result, Fenix Ammunition has suspended ammo sales to law enforcement agencies.
