Generally speaking, Democrats want to take away your guns. They have for a while now but they kept those intentions secret over the last decade or so. But now, they no longer pretend to be defenders of the Second Amendment. Today, it’s impossible to be a Democratic lawmaker who doesn’t support unconstitutionally curtailing our right to keep and bear arms.
There is already legislation that’s making its way through Capitol Hill to make it harder to buy firearms. But that’s the tip of the iceberg, the opening volley into a protracted war against our rights. As I noted in the past, I believed that they were waiting for the next mass shooting in order to get the ball rolling through emotional responses, but it seems like they’re laying down the groundwork already.
Instead of waiting for a mass shooting, they’re using the partially manufactured excuse of “domestic terrorism” to make their opening play. It’s not that there isn’t domestic terrorism afoot, but Antifa and Black Lives Matter tend to use improvised weapons and burn buildings instead of taking shots at people. That’s not always the case, but there have been fewer firearms in their attacks. Nevertheless, Dianne Feinstein and company are already pushing forward a new bill.
This bill bans hundreds of guns by name. https://t.co/n4nqWMOfUt

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Cam Edwards from Bearing Arms and the Second Amendment Foundation. Both organizations do what they can to protect our Second Amendment rights and Edwards is one of the nation’s staunchest defenders. It was an enthralling interview that gave great insights into what’s coming down the pike.
Among the many issues at hand is the attacks on “assault rifles.” Even if we willfully ignore the lack of a proper definition for the term (after all, Democrats ignore the fact all the time), we cannot ignore that even the most “assault-rifley” firearms like AR-15s are protected. The government cannot have sole authority over firearms that are intended to help us defend against both crime and tyranny. There are numerous instances in which “assault rifles” were used by good guys to protect against bad guys with similar firearms.
But at the core of the issue is that there are already plenty of laws on the books that are not being properly enforced. Invariably, we learn that the vast majority of crimes that involve firearms are done so by people who either cannot own a firearm or possess on illegally. As the logic goes, new gun laws will only hurt law abiding American citizens. The criminals will only be empowered and emboldened by addition restraints on our lawful rights.
In this episode of NOQ Report, I broke down some of the other things that we need to see as I discussed the future with Edwards. We also discussed ways that activists can participate in helping to preserve the Second Amendment at the local, city, county, and state levels. We may have a harder time dealing with Washington DC for at least the next two years, but we have recourse within our republic to take action locally.
They say that if the Second Amendment falls, there will be no way for us to defend any of our other rights. We are facing the greatest threat to the Second Amendment that we’ve seen in our lifetimes. We must act now.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our brand new GiveSendGo page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
