New Veterans Gun Control Plan

BY Herschel Smith
19 hours, 11 minutes ago

NPR.

This summer the Trump administration rolled out the President’s Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End a National Tragedy of Suicide (PREVENTS) – a long awaited strategy to bring down the rate of suicide in the military and among civilians. It focuses on enlisting community partners and a public awareness campaign to fight the stigma around seeking help during a mental health crisis.

Critics in congress have said the plan isn’t proactive enough. But it does address one issue that has been seen as politically taboo: access to guns.

Suicide is notoriously difficult to study since it’s a rare event, even as suicide rates for the military and civilians are on the rise. But if there’s one obvious place to fight veterans’ suicide, it’s firearms. Gun owners are four times more likely to die by suicide. Veterans are almost twice as likely to be gun owners, and one study showed that one in three vets store their guns loaded and unlocked. Guns are by far the deadliest method of suicide.

But keeping guns away from veterans has been politically radioactive.

“People really haven’t wanted to touch the issue of firearms safety,” said Terri Tanielian, a senior behavioral scientist at the RAND corporation.

She says the new White House roadmap was a bit disappointing – it took 15 months to endorse a set of recommendations that aren’t very new.

But she is happy that the White House plan mentioned “safe storage” of guns. There had been rumors that the powerful gun-rights lobby would get that section removed from the plan.

“Now that we’re wading into that water, it is good to see that we are willing to talk about it and engage partners and do something meaningfully on this issue,” Tanielian said.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has been talking about gun safety since at least 2013, sometimes putting free trigger-locks in big bowls in the waiting rooms, like lollipops at the doctor’s office. Still, Dr. Matt Miller, director of VA suicide prevention, doesn’t say politically loaded words like “gun control.”

“We’re not talking about broad restrictions. We’re talking about lethal-means safety in the context of suicide prevention,” he said.

Miller wants to dispel the stigma about seeking help. He says anyone can be in emotional pain; anyone can have suicidal thoughts. He wants veterans to think about keeping guns safely out of reach when they’re in crisis. Miller said suicide is usually an impulsive act, but guns make it much more likely to be lethal.

“Miller wants to dispel the stigma about seeking help.”  Bull crap.  Here’s a stigma for you.  Any veteran who ever seeks emotional help will never get his rights restored and will always be incapable of filling out Form 4473.

Protester: “We Are Peaceful, You Pointed A Gun At My Face.” Armed Resident: “That’s Why You Are Peaceful”

This is worthy of news today, but mark my words.  This will be the norm shortly.  Armed neighborhood watches, as it once was, as it should be today.  As it always should have been.  Men policing and protecting their families and neighbors.

Let me make it clear. I wouldn’t be protecting cops, for a whole host of reasons too involved to catalog. To me, this is exemplary of the future for every neighborhood.

Radio Host Who Defended “Peaceful” Protesters Has Apartment Destroyed By Rioters

Zerohedge, via David Codrea.

Seattle radio host and self proclaimed “Cat Dad” Paul Gallant had taken to Twitter back in June to respond to President Trump’s handling of the protesters in Seattle. Responding to a Tweet where the President was critical of the Seattle mayor, Gallant responded “Chill dawg” before saying he saw “no burning, pillaging or deaths” in his city.

Today, Paul has taken to Twitter to sing another tune: “I feel like I need to buy a firearm”.

Why the change in attitude? Perhaps it was because rioters in his city trashed and looted the downstairs to his apartment complex. Gallant arrived back at his apartment this weekend to find it vandalized and looted.

Oh.  I see.  So you would go after the rights of peaceable men and support those who would enslave them, but when they come for you, it’s different because you are elite and have a right to life.

I hope you can’t find one, jerk.

New Second Amendment Resolutions

BY Herschel Smith
19 hours, 53 minutes ago

In Virginia.

Culpeper County has approved another resolution stating its opposition to any infringement of gun rights for local citizens and visitors alike.

At its meeting Tuesday morning, the Board of Supervisors almost unanimously approved the document recommended for adoption last month by Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins. The resolution is in response to a new state law, effective July 1, giving localities the ability to further regulate the carrying of firearms on public property, according to County Administrator John Egertson.

The resolution was drafted to state, according to Egertson that, “The board has no intent to utilize that new legislation in order to place further restrictions on firearms.”

Underwood said he also heard from various members of local “Second Amendment groups” wholly in support of the resolution. The board in December unanimously voted to declare itself a Second Amendment Constitutional County as part of a statewide effort among Republicans to push back on Democratic-led gun reform in the Virginia General Assembly.

“We will not be enacting new regulations,” Underwood said on Tuesday and Frazier agreed.

Supervisor Paul Bates made a motion to approve the resolution and Supervisor Brad Rosenberger seconded it. Supervisor Bill Chase, listening by telephone, abstained from voting on the hot button issue because he said, he “couldn’t hear a damn thing” about the gun resolution discussion due to his remote access to the meeting held in the auditorium at Eastern View High School for distancing requirements.

The resolution states:

“REGARDING LOCAL AUTHORITY TO REGULATE FIREARMS UNDER SECTION 15.2-915(E) OF THE CODE OF VIRGINIA WHEREAS, in acknowledgment of its deep commitment to the rights of all citizens of, and visitors to, Culpeper County to keep and bear arms, the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors previously declared Culpeper County to be a ‘Constitutional County’; and

WHEREAS, certain legislation has been passed in the Virginia General Assembly that allows localities to, by ordinance, ban otherwise lawfully possessed and transported firearms from certain public spaces, causing law-abiding citizens to be exposed to a patchwork of local ordinances as they travel throughout the Commonwealth; and

WHEREAS, the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors acknowledges the significant economic contribution made to our community by tourists and visitors and does not wish to discourage travel to Culpeper County; and

WHEREAS, Culpeper County wishes to welcome all law-abiding citizens who wish to live in, visit, or otherwise participate in the economy of our community, including those citizens and visitors who choose to legally carry a firearm for personal protection; and

WHEREAS, the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors does not wish to infringe on the rights of the citizens of, or visitors to, Culpeper County to keep and bear arms; and

WHEREAS, the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors wishes to express its continued opposition to any law that would unconstitutionally restrict the rights of the citizens of, and visitors to, Culpeper County to keep and bear arms;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors of Culpeper County, Virginia hereby declares that Culpeper County shall not exercise any authority granted to it by § 15.2-915(E) of the Code of Virginia to regulate or prohibit the otherwise legal purchase, possession, or transfer of firearms or ammunition.”

In Washington County, WI.

On July 8, 2020, the County Board in Washington County, Wisconsin passed a resolution reaffirming their oaths to support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin. The resolution passed with a unanimous vote of 25 to 0. It should be noted that this resolution does not address the Second Amendment specifically. Additionally, in the video embedded below, the County Executive, Josh Schoemann, points out that it is not intended to make Washington County a Sanctuary County. We have found that some counties prefer not to use the terminology “Sanctuary” due to connotations with Sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants.

From the discussion, it appeared that the board really did take this resolution seriously. The supervisors discussed the fact that the resolution originally centered on the Second Amendment, but then the Chinese Coronavirus came along and people in government started restricting the rights of the people. They felt that it was necessary to expand the scope of this resolution to encompass more than just the Second Amendment because it wasn’t just the Second Amendment that was being trampled upon.

There’s video at the link.  Next up, Sawyer County, WI.

On July 16, 2020 the Sawyer County, Wisconsin Board of Supervisors passed a resolution to reaffirm their commitment to the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and the Wisconsin Constitution’s Right to Bear Arms.

Both the vote total and the resolution itself (at the link) are weak tea.  Next up, Grant County, WI.

On July 21, 2020, the Grant County, WI Board of Supervisors passed a resolution in support of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 25 of the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin.

I don’t know what the word “opposes” means in this resolution.  There is much work to be done, but it’s good to get them on record and have a starting point.

John Kasich’s Betrayal of Gun Owners

BY Herschel Smith
1 day, 19 hours ago

David Codrea.

Kasich is the latest in a string of “Never Trump Republicans” to cast his lot with the Democrats, the very Party his past supporters donated money and labor to defeat at the polls. We’ve noted subversive efforts by groups like the Lincoln Project and watched prominent “neocons” like George Conway, Bill Kristol, and Carly Fiorina jump ship. We’ve seen “Big Tent Republicans” like Larry Hogan making no secret of abandoning what once was a Republican core constituency to move the GOP even further to the left. And just the other day, “conservative” columnist George Will announced he’s voting for Biden.

Funny that list.  I’ve always felt that Kristol and Fiorina were sniveling lackeys, Kasich just a buffoon, and George Will a true creep.  I’ve never liked any of them, and never found any to be a friend to gun owners.

Not that Kasich meant anything he promised to swindle gun owners into voting for him. Except he called infringements “reforms.” He came out against “Stand Your Ground” and even vetoed a gun bill that didn’t have it because it didn’t include “guilty until proven innocent” Red Flag seizures.

It’s always about red flag laws, isn’t it?  You can have these pretend rights, but we want to be able to take them away for any reason we deem fit, and we’ll send the Stasi to do it.

It’s the same thing going on in Wyoming right now.  Oh, the real news can get buried under the drama that the MSM whips up.  But read on and make sure to read to the end.  It’s all about pol support for red flag laws.

Conservative Justices Declined To Take Up Second Amendment Case After Roberts Signaled He Would Side With Liberals

BY Herschel Smith
1 week ago

NRO.

The conservative wing of the Supreme Court reportedly declined to take up a case dealing with Second Amendment rights after Chief Justice John Roberts indicated that he would vote with the court’s liberal justices.

In June, the justices rejected petitions from 10 challenges relating to state restrictions on firearms after Roberts signaled he would not vote with them, depriving the court’s conservatives of the fifth vote needed to overturn gun regulations, CNN reported Monday.

[ … ]

The four most reliably conservative justices were not confident that they would get a fifth vote from Roberts on the case or similar cases addressing the Second Amendment, according to unidentified sources cited by CNN.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh penned an unsigned opinion that was overseen by Roberts for that case in which six justices agreed that the case should be relegated to the lower court. In a separate statement that Kavanaugh signed, he said that the Supreme Court should address “soon” the issue of varying interpretations of the Second Amendment.

Somebody surely has something on Roberts.

So if this report is to be taken as true and accurate, the four justices stopped what could have been a defeat for the observation of gun rights in America by simply refusing to take cases.

Roberts is the stated reason.  If this report is accurate, it’s probably best that nothing was done.

New York State Supreme Court Orders Police to Hand Over Private Information About Gun Owners

BY Herschel Smith
1 week ago

Townhall.

The New York State Supreme Court last week granted a motion ordering the New York City Police Department (NYPD) to turn over the name, zip codes and license category of anyone who was granted a firearm license in 2018.

The New York Daily News made the request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request process, which provides public information from government agencies to citizens and journalists.

According to the lawsuit filed against the NYPD, the newspaper makes the argument that they should have access to the information because their reporters “frequently cover gun-related political and policing issues.”

The Daily News argues that the information can be turned over because of a state law – known as the SAFE Act – that declared “that names and addresses of all firearms licenses were public information.”

Under the SAFE Act, gun owners have the ability to opt-out of their information being handed over in FOIA requests but their application has to be approved. It’s the information of those that did not opt-out that the newspaper wants.

“The SAFE act requires disclosure of the names and addresses of gun licensees unless they have applied for and been granted an exemption under the statute,” the lawsuit stated.

The NYPD denied the request on multiple occasions, citing various reasons, like an “invasion of privacy” and “extraordinary effort” would have to be put forth to collect the records.

The licensing department did, however, provide information about the types of permits that were Issued by zip code from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2017. They did not hand over specific names. After an appeal, the licensing department provided a list of 132 names for people who attempted to opt-out but were denied. The newspaper, however, wasn’t happy with the list because it didn’t specify what kind of firearm the licensee possessed.

The court concluded that the department violated the FOIL.

“Absent the SAFE Act exemption, respondent must submit the following information to petitioner: The license category and zip code of ‘Members of Service’ who were licensed during Calendar Year 2018 (either by renewal or for the first time) be submitted to petitioner,” the court ordered. “… respondent may withhold their names. Respondent must also give to petitioner the name, zip code, and license category of those to whom it granted a new or renewal license during Calendar Year 2018. This information covers all licensees who applied prior to Calender Year 2018 but were granted a license during that year.”

There are two problems here: [1] the law itself, which is an invasion of privacy, and [2] the court decision which doesn’t recognize that it’s an unconstitutional invasion of privacy.

I’ll also comment that the law converts a right into a license in that it forces an individual both to know that he must opt out of this abomination, and spend the time and energy to do it.  It’s as bad as a license and fee for the exercise of a God-given right.

Nice job, court.  Now maybe criminals will know to whom they can go to steal weapons and harm people.  Criminals might include thieves or SWAT teams performing raids.

If you’re a gun owner and live in New York, I just have one question.  Why?

Armed Neighborhood Patrols: The Future Of America

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 1 day ago

Via Insty, this quote (because I don’t quote information from behind a paywall).

Minneapolis residents in some areas still recovering from rioting and unrest are forming community watch and security groups, some bearing firearms, to fight a surge of crime in the wake of the George Floyd killing in May. At least one neighborhood has put up barricades to keep away outsiders.

The moves come as the city council on Friday approved its first permanent cuts to the police budget, amid calls to defund the department and generally lower tax revenue due to the economic strain caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The $193 million police budget will be cut by $10 million, including making permanent some temporary spending measures—including a hiring freeze—put in place in June. Around $1 million from the police budget is being shifted to a program called Cure Violence that tries to prevent things such as retaliatory shootings through community engagement. . . .

Police say the increase in crime follows a pattern seen in Ferguson, Mo., and other places where there have been high-profile officer-involved deaths and protests. Police say that, while some in the city seem to believe police have given up, officers remain on patrol throughout the city.

As riots played out across the city in late May and early June, a group of Black gun owners responded to a call from the local NAACP and patrolled the mostly African-American West Broadway business district for 10 nights, keeping the area free of looting or arson without firing a shot, said Jamil Jackson, a leader of the group called the Minnesota Freedom Fighters, which advocates for Black gun ownership. . . .

Council member Linea Palmisano said armed neighborhood patrols, or even efforts to just keep unfamiliar people out of a neighborhood, opens a Pandora’s box.

“We are lurching for solutions,” she said, noting she doesn’t support the idea of doing away with the police department but supports the idea of letting residents vote on it.

With the neighborhood patrols, “you could very easily create the same things we rally against,” she said.

In late June, residents near a commercial strip that had been looted, and the 3rd Precinct station that was abandoned and burned, were seeing a surge of shooting and drug-related crime on their block.

“It got to the point where crime had no consequences,” said Tania Rivera, 30, who runs a child-care center with her mother. “It was being done deliberately out in the open. Drive-through drug dealing, drive-through prostitution, everything from gunshots to assaults to sex out in the public. Everything you didn’t want your neighborhood to look like.”

So after a number of community meetings, neighbors began constructing a barrier to close off two blocks of their street, first with trash cans, then debris. For a while, a boat on a trailer protected one intersection. Eventually, a nearby iron maker constructed a permanent gate. Police gave their approval as long as emergency responders could get through if requested by the neighborhood.

Neighborhood men also began an armed patrol, kicking out anyone who didn’t belong on the block after dark.

And thus it will be in the future, everywhere.

If the current communist revolution in America has done nothing else, it seems to have convinced people of the truth concerning police, i.e., [1] they are beholden to and controlled by the local political powers and will do their bidding, and [2] they were never really there to protect people to begin with.

Regular readers already know, based on Castle Rock v. Gonzales and Warren v. D.C., that the police aren’t there to provide protection anyway.

Now, the mask has not just slipped down, but completely off.  Men must protect their families, legally and morally.  It’s the righteous thing to do.

2A Resolution In Anderson County, S.C.

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 1 day ago

It sounds pretty good, right up until the last part.

It shall be the duty of the Sheriff of Anderson County to determine whether or any federal or state regulation of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition violates section (a) herein; provided, however, that nothing contained herein prevents the Anderson County Sheriff from enforcing any federal or state law found to be constitutional by a court of competent jurisdiction.

You see, there’s the rub.  The .gov will always be able to find a corrupt judge who will say just about anything is constitutional and righteous when it is neither.

Therefore, the resolution is toothless.  The good people of Anderson County should remedy this situation by [1] throwing the bums out, and [2] crafting a resolution that is not obviously written by the county attorney.

Don’t Try To Tell Me What The Second Amendment Means

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 5 days ago

The number of times I’ve seen baiting of 2A supporters to come “help” the rioters are too numerous to link.  Those bait traps have been ubiquitous of late.

reddit/Firearms has yet another response to this nonsense.

Some brief but insightful comments:

Denigrate firearm owners for years
>Realize concerns for tyranny are legitimate
>Whine and cry halp-halp
Lol FOH

It’s funny because the left has always been free to arm themselves. All of a sudden, we’re some free group of mercenaries being baited to fight for daddy soro’s marxist movement.

These remarks are on point but too brief as is the nature of reddit.  Here are mine.

It’s laughable that anyone on the communist side has had the stupidity to come up with anything like the idea that 2A supporters should be helping them.

First of all, these are the very people who voted to disarm people, and would disarm you in a heartbeat if they had the chance.  They don’t want an armed populace – that is at odds with everything the communists believe in.

Second, 2A supporters aren’t violent and murderous people like the communists.  The 2A community will fight back against confiscation (among other things), but not at innocent lives who had nothing to do with the abuses.

Third, 2A supporters would have nothing whatsoever to do with the destruction of property of innocent people who were trying to earn an honest living, as is the case with the communists.  In short, we care about people and their lives, the communists don’t, and see everyone as a steppingstone to the next goal on their agenda.  It makes no sense for a 2A supporter to side with communists because communists are the very people who want to steal from others, while 2A supporters are generally hard working, honest Americans.

Fourth, the communists side isn’t righteous.  It isn’t righteous to want to implement the very tyranny they are fighting.  The communists would overthrow tyranny only to implement a worse one.  God hates controllers and communists.

This list is far from complete, and readers can add to it.  The bottom line, if you are one of the communists who have stumbled upon this post, is that you and I are on different sides.  We are enemies.

No one fell for your stupid antics to get some “help.”  You can be imprisoned or die on your own for your sins.  Imprisoned or die – it matters not to me.

UPDATE: See what I said?  Via Glenn Reynolds, this reply from Larry Correia’s response to the same thing.  I just think my response is more expansive.
