First Time Gun Buyer: Younger and Minority

From The Trace:

Pandemic first-time gun buyers are younger and more diverse. That doesn’t mean they’re more receptive to gun reform. Americans bought more than 40 million guns in 2020 and 2021, the two highest sales years on record, according to our gun sales tracker. About 5 percent of adults in America purchased a gun for the first time between March 2020 and March 2022, according to a new survey from NORC at the University of Chicago, bringing the total number of adults living in armed households to 46 percent. More diverse, younger, but with similar views

Denver Law Criminalizes Everyday Objects, Not Just Homemade Guns

From Bearing Arms:

“The pieces of the legislation that weren’t talked about were the pieces about reorganizing the code, the weapons code…basically criminalizing youth a little bit more.” CdeBaca said. “I think this emerged from the protests. People had umbrellas or they had their airsoft guns or they had other things to protect themselves from the pepper spray that was being deployed by the police officers, and now that bill made all of that a crime.”

Newsweek: Questioning The Next Election is Wanting To Overthrow The Government

From Newsweek:

America’s massive and mostly Republican gun-rights movement dovetails with a growing belief among many Republicans that the federal government is an illegitimate tyranny that must be overthrown by any means necessary. That combustible formula raises the threat of armed, large-scale attacks around the 2024 presidential election—attacks that could make the January 6 insurrection look like a toothless stunt by comparison.

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.”

Cuban Protests

From The Truth About Guns:

As I type this, 228 miles south of me. People are fighting for their freedom in the streets of Cuba. The Communist government has been in power there for 62 years and it appears the people might have finally had enough.

FiveThirtyEight Hypes Threat Of Militias

From FiveThirtyEight:

“There is no private militia that is lawful. Period. Full stop,” said McCord, whose group at Georgetown has identified laws on the books in every state that prohibit some or all private militia activity. But these laws often go unenforced, and that’s partly because in practice, it’s not always obvious what crosses a line. A law in Virginia, for example, bans weapons training but only if that training is intended to be used in “a civil disorder.”

Why Gun Control Is Doomed

From 19fortyfive:

Liberals across the country as well as Democratic lawmakers only see the negatives with the increase in firearm ownership. They see more guns used in violent acts, but the fact is that even as gun sales have hit record numbers – showing no signs of slowing down – that crime hasn’t kept pace. Moreover, in the past twenty years as crime has gone down, the number of guns in private hands has gone up.

Washington To Ban Firearms At Protests And State Capitol

From Crosscut:

Over opposition from Republicans and gun-rights activists, both houses of the Legislature have passed a ban on weapons within 250 feet of protests or on the Capitol campus in Olympia. Backers say empowering police to remove or arrest armed onlookers addresses widespread complaints from demonstrators and reduces a bona fide safety risk.

After a year of protests in Portland and Seattle about police brutality and defunding the police Washington State now wants to give the police more power? The entire Northwest is schizophrenic. They don’t know what they want.

State Capitol Protests Turn Into Non Event

From The Federalist:

Americans have been gaslighted, again. After a horde of Trump supporters sacked the U.S. Capitol building over Congress certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win in the Electoral College this month, Democrats and legacy media raised hysteria that the recent incursion was the first in what was supposed to become a series of domestic attacks targeting state capitols ahead of the inauguration.

Washington Governor Hypocrisy

From The Post Millennial:

Governor Inslee has ordered up to 750 members of the National Guard to help with security on Monday. The governor’s office said that at least some of the troops on duty Monday will have their weapons.

However, this summer when violent riots rocked downtown Seattle, Inslee sent National Guard troops to the area unarmed.
