President Trump ripped “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg for his offensive attack on the Texas church hero Jack Wilson and the “average” American gun owners.
Seconds after a gunman open-fired at a Texas church, a good guy with a gun stopped him. Jack Wilson is the “average” American Bloomberg thinks should be disarmed.
— NRA (@NRA) January 3, 2020
Now Mini Mike Bloomberg is critical of Jack Wilson, who saved perhaps hundreds of people in a Church because he was carrying a gun, and knew how to use it. Jack quickly killed the shooter, who was beginning a rampage. Mini is against the 2nd A. His ads are Fake, just like him!

Democrats want to take away all your guns, after all how dare innocent people fight back against the criminal element that Democrats pander to for votes.
Its usually the beginning of the end for a free Nation!
Democrats are America’s greatest enemy!

Gun Sales Surge Overwhelming Background Check Systems
If you’ve waited until now, to buy needed supplies, you waited way too long.
Coronavirus gun sales are surging thereby overwhelming state and federal background check systems.
The coronavirus sales surge is straining the gun background check system. According to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, which administers checks in that state, the average wait time for screening has gone from between five and eight minutes to two days. It’s a similar story in Pennsylvania, where stores are reporting unprecedented delays. The FBI, which conducts the screenings for most states, told Newsweek that it’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System “remains fully operational and will continue to process requests.
Coronavirus Gun Sale Surge Overwhelms State, Federal Background Check Systems https://t.co/CpCCa76DB7
— 🅿️UNJABI M🅰️GA 👊🏽 🇺🇸 (@MR_PUNJABI) March 23, 2020
The gun sales surge accompanying the Chinese conronavirus pandemic is overwhelming both state and federal background check systems.
On March 19, 2020, Breitbart News reported National Shooting Sports Foundation numbers showing gun sales in the U.S. had jumped 300 percent above where they were at the same point in time last year. Thereafter, various Federal Firearm License holders (FFLs) contacted Breitbart News to talk of calling into the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Checks (NICS) to do a background check for a pending sale, only to be placed on hold for hours and/or, in some cases, to have the line disconnected.
An FFL from a western state told Breitbart News he has a stack of background checks forms–ATF form 4473–already filled out by customers who came into the store to purchase firearms during the sales surge. The FFL arrives at store early in the morning and places a call to the FBI NICS number simply to be placed in the queue, and once he is talking to someone he runs as many of the background checks as he can before being disconnected.
An FFL in a midwestern state told Breitbart News he lost “$10,000 to “$12,000” in sales on Friday, March 20, 2020, due to delays in NICS response to phone calls for background checks. More
As subjects of the state, we have to request permission from our government for something we already have as a God-given right to own. This should have never happened. Our founding fathers are certainly rolling around in their graves.
Florida’s Failed ‘Red Flag’ Law Sees Massive Numbers of Gun Confiscation
The State of Florida has seen a large number of very shady cases of gun confiscation since it enacted its un-American red flag law in 2018.
Showing exactly why so-called “red flag” laws are dangerously un-American, the State of Florida has seen a large number of very shady cases of gun confiscation since it enacted its red flag law in 2018.
In just over a year, this un-American law has been used more than 3,500 times to take away the Second Amendment rights of Floridians.
That is an obscene number of cases in such a short period of time.
Per the Associated Press:
The law, supported by legislators of both parties, has been applied more than 3,500 times since, with the pace accelerating during the last half of 2019. Even so, an Associated Press analysis of the law showed its use is inconsistent, with some counties and cities using it rarely and others not at all.
Advocates of Florida’s red flag measure say before it existed, it was often difficult to remove firearms from those making threats or suffering severe mental breakdowns. Investigators did not act on reports that the Parkland shooter was threatening to carry out a school massacre. But even if they had, it is likely he would have been allowed to keep his guns because he had no felony convictions or involuntary, long-term mental commitments, they say.
Naturally, the AP lied with its headline.
As Jazz Shaw pointed out, the AP’s headline said “hundreds of guns” have been confiscated, but it is in fact THOUSANDS of guns that have been stolen by the state.
Shaw also noted that the numbers seem to show that some Florida counties are abusing the law:
As the report reveals, there are two counties in the panhandle where authorities have only issued one red flag order for every 100,000 residents. Nine other, mostly rural counties, have issued none at all since the law took effect. But at the other end of the scale, multiple counties have issued one for every 5,500 residents. One other (Highlands County) issued one for every 850 people living there. That’s got to be a significant portion of the guns in the county.
Are we honestly supposed to believe that some of those counties are chock full of crazy people while others have no issues at all? Or could it be that some counties have judges and/or sheriffs that are far more likely to approve gun confiscations than others? The sheriff in the top gun-grabbing county, Paul Blackman, told the AP that he has “no idea” why his county is number one but noted that his deputies receive frequent calls about mental health crisis situations.
So, how does this law work? It allows police to batter down doors, steal a citizen’s firearms, and even incarcerate them just on the say-so of someone. Police don’t have to prove a thing. They just have to take the word of anyone who decides they don’t like the targeted person.
Worse, since it is not a criminal proceeding, the targeted citizen has no right to state supplied counsel and have to pay for their own legal fees whether they can afford it or not. And that means only the rich can afford to fight these confiscations in court.
As Shaw noted, this law is ripe for abuse and there are damn few safeguards in place to stop that abuse.
What could be more un-American than the summary elimination of a citizen’s Constitutional rights like this?

Virginia Democrats Announce Plans to Restore Gun Rights… to Convicted Murderers
Virginia Democrats have finally found a group they DO want to give more gun rights to and apparently they are convicted murderers
Well, it looks like Virginia Democrats have finally found a group they DO want to give more gun rights to and apparently that group is convicted murderers!
Virginia Democrats are busily trying to take away gun rights from as many classes of law-abiding Virginians as they can. One law, for instance is SB 240, the state Democrat’s new “red flag” law. The law would allow police to instantly take away a citizen’s guns if but one person complains that the targeted citizen “might” be “a danger” to themselves or those around them.
One might assume that at some level the definition of “a danger” just might include a criminal record.
Well, you would be wrong, at least in the case of one class of criminals to whom Democrats want to ignore a criminal record and restore gun rights.
Shockingly, state Democrats want to reinstate the gun rights of convicted murderers who are under the age of 17.
As The Blaze reported:
Virginia attorney Hans Bader warns that prominent Democrats in both houses of the legislature are supporting HB 274, a bill that raises the age for when a juvenile criminal conviction triggers a ban on that individual owning or transporting firearms.
Under current Virginia law, juveniles may be tried as adults for violent offenses beginning at age 14. This bill will would raise the age to 16. In addition, under current law (§18.2-308.2(A)), it is prohibited for “any person adjudicated delinquent as a juvenile 14 years of age or older at the time of the offense of murder in violation of § 18.2-31 or 18.2-32, kidnapping in violation of § 18.2-47, robbery by the threat or presentation of firearms in violation of § 18.2-58, or rape in violation of § 18.2-61 … to knowingly and intentionally possess or transport any firearm or ammunition for a firearm.”
This bill would change the age threshold from 14 to 16, meaning that anyone convicted of a violent murder under the age of 16 would still be able to legally possess a firearm.
In other words, teens who have already used guns in violent crimes would be allowed to keep their firearms as far as Virginia Democrats are concerned.
So, let’s recap. In Virginia, Democrats want laws that say:
Adults who were not convicted of anything can have their Second Amendment rights summarily eliminated without a trial under the Democrat Red Flag law.
Teenagers who have already used guns to kill someone will be allowed to keep their guns.
Once again, we see that Democrats are the most dangerous element in American society.

Lying Media Desperately Hoped Virginia Gun Rally Would Turn Violent
A review of coverage of Monday’s rally in Virginia by the fake news media shows they desperately hoped there would be bloodshed.
A review of coverage of Monday’s Second Amendment rally in Virginia by the fake news media shows they desperately hoped there would be bloodshed.
Extremist, left-wing cable network MSNBC led the way on Monday morning’s coverage. Just as rally goers were gathering, the extremist “news” network labeled the participants as dangerous terrorists who were sure to begin killing people by the scores.
MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin started out by falsely labeling the rally in Richmond, Virginia, as being attended by “armed militia,” and “white nationalist groups from all over the country.”
This is a flat out lie.
Still, he rambled on saying, “This is the scene in Richmond. Armed militia, white nationalist groups from all over the country taking part on MLK day.” He added that state officials “fear a dangerous confrontation.”
In another segment this liar gasped that “Right now, thousands of guns rights activists, white nationalists, militia groups all swarming the Virginia state capitol in Richmond.”
This garbage was typical of the media’s coverage of the day’s rally. But as it turned out, not a single negative incident occurred. All that happened was real Americans turned out to denounce Virginia’s elimination of American Second Amendment rights.
Others in the media were just as bad. Check out this montage of some of the worst offenders:

Oh, and the accusation that the rally was just a “white nationalist” rally? This black man who attended sure did not think so:

But once the rally went off without any of the violence, mayhem, arrests, and bloodletting that the liberal media wanted, that same media was sure annoyed by the law abiding gun owners.

“Every news piece you’ve seen this weekend, they’ve always brought up the issue of race, as thought its nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here that care for the Second Amendment,” said the man.
“When actually, black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans, in general, care about the 2nd Amendment,” the man continued. “I work at a gun store part-time and I can’t tell you the number of customers I see of all races, all colors, all creeds, who care about the 2nd Amendment and who just want to peaceably, live their lives, enjoy their rights, and their 2nd Amendment.”
This is outstanding to see fellow Americans stand up for our rights black, white, brown, or yellow it makes no difference we are all patriots at heart.
Fake News MSNBC is calling #VirginiaRally goers “white nationalists” on national television.
I’m sorry, but defending your Second Amendment rights from a usurpative government is not racist.
It’s called being an American patriot.

MSM Hypes Fake News About Gun Rights Rally
Not only no violence, but those at the rally also picked up the place, leaving it cleaner than when they arrived! Leftists could learn a thing or two from conservatives.
The MSM wanted some violence to break out at the Virginia gun rally but were sorely disappointed that people who support the Constitution and who were NOT “white nationalists” didn’t comply with their hopes.
