GOP Making Unprecedented Move Toward Gun Control In Decades Following Outbreak Of Mass Shootings

This is disappointing.

This past weekend saw two, not one, but two, awful mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio respectively, and as you can imagine, in the wake of these tragedies there has been an outpouring of cries for the government to enact strict gun control that will infringe on the rights of law-abiding gun owners across America.

Normally, this is an issue that Republicans stand against, but for some reason, many folks in the GOP are moving toward gun control in unprecedented ways, no doubt disappointing voters in the process.

Following Trump’s speech, the Times’ Sheryl Gay Stolberg reported that Republicans are “coalescing around legislation to help law enforcement take guns from those who pose an imminent danger.” As examples of the increased unification on the issue, Stolberg cites multiple Republicans expressing support, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has proposed federal grants to help enact state red flag laws, Sen. John Thune (R-SD), who expressed confidence Tuesday that Congress “will be able to find common ground on the so-called red flag issue,” and Rep. Michael R. Turner (R-OH), who pledged to support not only a red flag law but a “military-style” weapons ban and magazine limit. ​

As The Daily Wire reported Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) appointed a three-person committee Tuesday to look into potential bipartisan solutions reflecting Trump’s priorities. “I asked them to reflect on the subjects the president raised within their jurisdictions and encouraged them to engage in bipartisan discussions of potential solutions to help protect communities without infringing on Americans’ constitutional rights,” McConnell said in a statement Tuesday.

“Red flag legislation also appears poised to move in the House,” Stolberg reports. “The Judiciary Committee was consulting with its members on Tuesday about whether to briefly return to Washington from a six-week recess to advance a red flag bill and other gun-related legislation, according to an aide to the committee.”

No matter what folks on either side of the aisle think, gun control laws are not going to solve the problem. Guns are banned in Chicago and that hasn’t done anything to curb the massive acts of violence carried out there on a daily basis.

Instead, it’s created a massive number of potential victims out fo the law-abiding individuals who live there. This is exactly what’s going to happen across the country when more gun control is put in place.

You can’t stop the evil in men’s heart with laws. If we could, then the fact murder is already illegal would be enough to stop these shootings. But it’s not. We need to change hearts and minds and that’s only going to happen through the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ, who truly has the power to change lives.

’60 Minutes’ Report on UFO’s has Twitter Users Spooked

The segment had social media users losing their collective minds.

Published

When it comes to the relationship between the US government and her citizens, there is little doubt that trust is an issue.  We’ve long understood that the large, cumbersome, federal agencies that our tax dollars fund are keeping many of us in the dark, and that rightly irks a great many Americans. Perhaps there is no better example of this secrecy than on the subject of UFO’s, beginning with the purported crash of a flying saucer in Roswell, New Mexico back in the late 1940’s, and continuing to this day with incidents such as the “Tic Tac” encounters reported by members of the armed forces. On Sunday night, mainstream news outfit 60 Minutes aired one hellacious report on the subject, featuring one of the Pentagon’s most well-respected researchers on the subject. Luis Elizondo spent 20 years running military intelligence operations worldwide: in Afghanistan, the Middle East and Guantanamo. He hadn’t given UFOs a second thought until 2008. That’s when he was asked to join something at the Pentagon called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, or “AATIP.” Lue Elizondo: The mission of AATIP was quite simple. It was to collect and analyze information involving anomalous aerial vehicles, what I guess in the vernacular you call them UFOs. We call them UAPs. Bill Whitaker: You know how this sounds? It sounds nutty, wacky. Lue Elizondo: Look, Bill, I’m not, I’m not telling you that, that it doesn’t sound wacky. What I’m telling you, it’s real. The question is, what is it? What are its intentions? What are its capabilities? Buried away in the Pentagon, AATIP was part of a $22 million program sponsored by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to investigate UFOs. When Elizondo took over in 2010 he focused on the national security implications of unidentified aerial phenomena documented by U.S. service…

Capitol Rioter Facing House Arrest After Mountain Lion Hunt

The excursion ran afoul of a “no guns” stipulation set by a judge.

While we may be thankfully several months removed from the tumultuous events of the January 6th attempted insurrection at the US Capitol, there is still a great deal of adjudication left to be done on the subject, as these cases are expected to drag out for several more months, or perhaps even years. One of the alleged participants of that event is now in hot water after the court discovered that he had gone on a mountain lion hunt despite being ordered to avoid firearms completely as a condition of his bail. A Colorado hunting guide charged with participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol will likely be placed on 24/7 house arrest — instead of remaining free while his case is pending — because he violated the conditions of his release by hunting and killing a mountain lion. Patrick Montgomery, a Littleton hunting guide, shot a mountain lion during a hunt in Douglas County on March 31, even though he was ordered not to possess any guns while the federal charges against him are pending, according to motions filed by prosecutors last week. Montgomery, 48, is accused of kicking a Metropolitan police officer in the chest and wrestling with the officer to try to take the officer’s baton during the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C., according to court records. He was indicted on 10 charges in April, including assaulting a police officer, engaging in physical violence and illegally entering the Capitol building. Prosecutors pulled no punches in their assessment of Montgomery’s actions. “Montgomery has no respect for the Court’s orders, just like he had no respect for law enforcement at the Capitol on January 6,” reads a motion filed by prosecutors. “…Montgomery has flagrantly violated the law and has shown by his actions that he…
