Donald Trump Jr’s 2A Task Force Needs Closer Scrutiny By Gun Owners

BY Herschel Smith

David Codrea.

“Donald Trump Jr. launches gun rights group, vows to fight Democratic gun control proposals,” Fox News reports. “The Second Amendment Task Force plans to build its operation around Trump’s high social media visibility and following, as well as his national media appearances.”

“The Second Amendment Task Force is the first advocacy group that Trump has launched and been directly involved with,” the report elaborates. “The group plans to make a push in the upcoming midterm elections this year, especially in the voter registration sphere.”

Except it’s not the first. Remember that “Second Amendment Coalition” his father announced and made him chairman of back in 2016?  The one he co-chaired with fired NRA-ILA honcho and bump stock “regulator” Chris Cox? If you don’t recall that group, it’s probably because it didn’t actually do much of anything and the webpage was taken down a half-a-year later.

As for “plans to make a push,” it’s fair to ask for whom. His father’s Mehmet Oz pick comes to mind. Are there any other candidates gun owners may have concerns about?

[ … ]

It would be greater to see him using his New York City concealed carry permit as a springboard to highlight how unjust and un-American it is to limit such permits to the sell-connected elites and to lead the charge for demanding change. For someone presuming to be a leadership voice for gun owners, it would be not just appropriate, but crucial for Trump Jr. to also explain in principle and detail:

David goes on to say, “The object here is not to attack him or start a feud with dad.”

I don’t mind doing so.  Trump will always trumpet his permit as something glorious, when the rest of the peasants who can’t afford highly paid lawyers in NY are left with nothing.

He should be ashamed at heralding his permit as something to be proud of rather than an example of something that should be changed.  Far from being a sign of support for gun rights, it’s a sign that he has no idea what gun rights means.

I don’t mind saying it at all.  I don’t trust anything Trump is involved with pertaining to 2A rights.

He can go pound sand.

    I’m a Life Member of the OGCA, Ohio Gun Collectors’ Association, and I nearly quit after Donnie Jr. came to speak at one of the shows in 2016. I held my nose and voted for his father in 2016, since at the time I was willing to give him a chance as opposed to Hillary.
    Donnie himself turned into a trainwreck as far as I was concerned, a view that was quite common in the engineering contract community. In 2020, I voted with most of my peers for Biden, even though I assumed that Joe would also flounder once in office.
    If Donnie gets the nod in 2024, once again I will vote Democrat across the board, if I even vote at all. I tend to agree with the Z-Man that voting is for fools.
    Last year neither my wife nor I voted in our elections; I told one local candidate who came to our house that as far as we are concerned, all of you are corrupt. Why vote?
    As to the OGCA, I haven’t attended any meetings in several years, partly because they were still insisting on masks until very recently, partly because my last two clients considered it a terrorist organization, and partly because the quality of the dealers has dropped, according to a dealer who still has tables and is appalled by the garbage being offered for sale. It appears that they are going to endorse Gov DeSwine for reelection, and if that is the case, I will almost certainly resign in disgust.

    “I’ll sign an Executive Order, and the National Guard can go pick up all of the AR-15s” – Trump, after Las Vegas. No one who treats the Bill of Rights like that gets my vote, now or ever.

    It’s a fundraising mechanism, nothing more. I don’t need a fundraiser “on my behalf” to tell me how to live. I need lawbreakers committed ending the GCA and the rest.

    The entire Trump family has proven they are not allies of freedom loving people.

    The least of our worries concerning gun rights. Brandon’s DHS Secretary has just said the DHS is gearing up for another 500,000, illegal aliens per month. The regime has already imported about 3-4 million illegals since Brandon has been in office. Another 500,000 per month through the November elections is about 3 to 4 million. These numbers do not take into account the refugees we admit all the time.

    In other words the game is over. Traditional Americans have been Kulaks for some time now. After Brandon gets done we will be something far lower. Trump Jr. should be addressing this if he is concerned about guns rights. Brandon’s new “Americans” will ensure gun rights go away quickly and most other rights as well. The communists won’t have to cheat on elections anymore. No need.

    Trump was a Judas Goat. Nothing more or less.

    His goal was to lull Heritage Americans into going back to sleep for four years.

    There are no “gun laws” in the 50 states of America.

    This is Due Notice to both the BATFE and Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives:

    You have no contract. Anything you do outside of DC or Puerto Rico is unlawful. The Civil War is over, as of August the First, 2021.

    “Rules” are internal regulations that apply to Federal Employees only. Failure to stipulate this is constructive fraud. The Supremacy Clause and Amendment 11 in all three Constitutions forbid you from overstepping your (virtually non-existent) authority.

    Outside of your explicitly enumerated (according to -your own employee Code-) geospatial jurisdiction (which is, pursuant to 26 USC 7701 “The District of Columbia” and pursuant to 18 USC 922 “Puerto Rico and the Continental Shelf), you have the same authority to address Americans as Wal-Mart floorwalkers.

    Govern yourselves accordingly, Notice to Agent is Notice to Principal, Notice to Principal is Notice to Agent.

    Government supremacists, same as everyone getting paid more to not work. No difference.
    The government has stupid just the same as everyone else. Buy armor. Train. DO what you need too, as long as you’re on the right side of God. They aren’t better. They’re sinners just like anyone else.
    If you need to use claymore to stop gangs in South Chicago you should be able to do so. The righteous thing is to defend those you have a responsibility to. Context is the determining factor.God knows your heart.
