In his primetime address to the nation Thursday night, President Biden declared the Second Amendment is not “absolute” as he presented eight gun-control proposals.
Article by Art Moore from our news partners at WND News Center.
Earlier Thursday, members of his party reflected that malleable view of the Constitution in a debate during a House Judiciary Committee meeting on the Protecting our Kids Act. The bill focuses on banning sales of semi-automatic weapons to those under age 21 and banning high-capacity ammunition magazines.
One Democrat angrily spit out an epithet about “constitutional rights” when a Republican lawmaker appealed to the Bill of Rights. And another vowed to eliminate some of the checks and balances established by the Founders that distinguishes a republic from a majority-rule democracy.
Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., was responding to the argument posed by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., that so-called “red flag laws” authorizing the confiscation of weapons from a person who is suspected without probable cause of being an “imminent danger to themselves and others, such that they might commit mass murder” violates an individual’s due process and Second Amendment rights.
“You know who didn’t have due process?” Cicilline shot back. “You know who didn’t have their constitutional right to life respected? The kids at Parkland, and Sandy Hook, and Uvalde, and Buffalo and the list goes on and on.
“So spare me the bull**** about constitutional rights.”

In the same hearing, Rep. Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y., vowed that Democrats will do whatever it takes to pass their restrictions on weapons, including removing the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court.
“Enough of your thoughts and prayers. Enough. Enough.” he said. “You will not stop us from advancing the Protect our Kids Act today. You will not stop us from passing it in the House next week, and you will not stop us there.”
He said that if the filibuster in the Senate, requiring 60 votes to advance the bill, “obstructs us, we will abolish it.”
“If the Supreme Court objects, we will expand it,” Jones said. “And we will not rest until we have taken weapons of war out of circulation in our communities.”
‘The threat to democracy’
Former Attorney General William Barr commented on Jones’ remarks in an interview with Glenn Beck.
Observing that Democrats “will not stop for any constitutional reason,” Beck asked Barr, “Are we living in a banana republic?”
“We’re approaching that,” Barr replied. “But, you know, this highlights, I think, the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party, when they talk about the threat to democracy.”
Barr pointed out that America’s Founders “well understood – as was expressed in Federalist paper No. 10 – that the threat to democracy, they felt, was a momentary bare majority steamrolling over a minority.”

“And that’s why they built in these checks and balances.”
Democrats, he said, basically are saying: “We have a bare majority, and we’re going to steamroll you. And if the Constitution gets in our way, we’re going to pack the court and do an end run around the Constitution.”
Barr said Democrats are acting in a way that suggests their ends justify any means.

A Dem. Rep just said he'd do ANYTHING to take AR-15s "out of circulation," including removing the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court. That's not common sense gun laws.

The ‘key fallacy’
In his address Thursday, Biden, citing CDC statistics, claimed more children are killed by firearms than by motor vehicles.
“Guns are the number one killer of children,” the president told the nation.
However, that claim is true only if 18- and 19-year-olds are regarded as children. In 2020, the number of children aged 0-17 killed by firearms was 2,281, while 2,503 children died in motor vehicle accidents.
Moreover, as Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute points out in an opinion piece in the New York Post, while “the horrific massacre in a Texas elementary school rightly outrages the nation, such mass shootings are not the primary reason for that grim statistic.”

“Most young people killed by guns are shot in gang violence or other crime – which has only gotten worse since the George Floyd race riots and their long anarchic aftermath,” she writes.
In 2020, homicides of youth between the ages of 10 and 17 rose 47%, she noted, and black youth of that age were killed at 11 times the rate of white youth.
“Virtually none of those black deaths was protested by Black Lives Matter activists, since the victims were killed overwhelmingly not by the police and not by whites but by other blacks – and thus did nothing to advance the narrative about lethal white supremacy,” Mac Donald writes.
“Blacks between the ages of 14 and 17 commit gun homicide at more than 10 times the rate of white and Hispanic teenagers combined,” she pointed out.
Economist Thomas Sowell argued in a column published a decade ago after the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting that places with the strictest gun laws typically have the highest murder rates, such as Washington, D.C.
“When it comes to the rate of gun ownership, that is higher in rural areas than in urban areas, but the murder rate is higher in urban areas,” he wrote. “The rate of gun ownership is higher among whites than among blacks, but the murder rate is higher among blacks. For the country as a whole, handgun ownership doubled in the late 20th century, while the murder rate went down.”
He said the “key fallacy of so-called gun control laws is that such laws do not in fact control guns. They simply disarm law-abiding citizens, while people bent on violence find firearms readily available.”
“If gun control zealots had any respect for facts, they would have discovered this long ago, because there have been too many factual studies over the years to leave any serious doubt about gun control laws being not merely futile but counterproductive.”

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. 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!
