NRA Drops the Hammer on Trump’s Justice Department

This is infringement of the Second Amendment, plain and simple, and the NRA isn’t happy about it.

NRA

The folks at the National Rifle Association are not happy, and it isn’t difficult to understand why.

For years, the NRA has been the leading voice in the fight to maintain the integrity and the intent of the Second Amendment.  They have committed countless resources to keeping the American people freely able to defend themselves against the tyranny of the modern, sleazy, political ruling class, only to be repeatedly rebuked by the leftists and their pie-in-the-sky fantasies about the nature of the human race.

Greed and power will always corrupt those who seek them incessantly, and the Second Amendment is our only insurance policy against the loss of our freedoms to these cretins.

That’s why, as the Justice Department puts the finishing touches on its plan to weaken the defenses of the American people, the NRA is lashing out.

Breitbart News possesses a copy of the DOJ’s summary of the final language of the ban, which says:

The Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to clarify that bump-stock-type devices-meaning “bump fire” stocks, slide-fire devices, and devices with certain similar characteristics-are “machineguns” as defined by the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 because such devices allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger.

The final language also makes clear there is no grandfather clause for currently-owned, legally purchased bump stocks. Rather, they must destroyed or handed over to the ATF within 90 days.

This irked the freedom fighters are the NRA to no end.

The NRA’s Jennifer Baker reacted to absence of a grandfather clause by saying:

We are disappointed that this final rule fails to address the thousands of law-abiding Americans who relied on prior ATF determinations when lawfully acquiring these devices. As we recommended to the ATF in our comments on the proposed rule Congress made it possible for the Attorney General to provide amnesty for firearms regulated under the National Firearms Act. The Attorney General should have exercised that authority to provide a period of amnesty under this rule.

The “comments” which Baker references were sent to the ATF on June 27, 2018, saying, “ATF now seeks to reclassify as “machinegun[s].” Owners of these products have relied on over a decade of ATF’s own rulings and guidance when lawfully acquiring bump fire stocks, and the proposed rule would now turn these gun owners into felons or require destruction of their property.”

We must remember, the Second Amendment isn’t protected from being repealed, it is protected against infringement.  This most certainly qualifies as the latter, as it prevents us from using the Second Amendment to maintain a competitive stance against a tyrannical governmental force.

Save conservative media!

Dems Demand Bolton Testify After Book Allegedly Says Trump Withheld Ukraine Aid (Details)

‘Allegedly’ is the keyword…

Democrats really, really, really want to see former NSA John Bolton testify before Congress. They believe he knows something about President Trump and Ukraine that the administration is hiding. This is a long shot. First of all, if Bolton knew something it would’ve been leaked to a reporter by now. Secondly, as you’ll see in the Twitter thread below, Bolton’s lawyer has no clue what Dems are talking about. From MSN via NYT: President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton. The president’s statement as described by Mr. Bolton could undercut a key element of his impeachment defense: that the holdup in aid was separate from Mr. Trump’s requests that Ukraine announce investigations into his perceived enemies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, who had worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was in office.

Rashida Tlaib Retweets Story About Israelis Killing Palestinian Boy, But It Never Happened

The definition of ‘fake news’…

Rashida Tlaib hasn’t exactly been shy about how much she dislikes the nation of Israel. It’s quite stunning to see coming a member of Congress, if you think about. But because Rashida is a Democrat, it’s fine. The mainstream media will give her a pass for hating Israel because she’s a woman and she’s Muslim. Obviously, that doesn’t make it right. Yet, having a “D” at the end of your name can do wonderful things for a person’s career. Here’s what she retweeted: https://twitter.com/Ostrov_A/status/1221089689328869376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221089689328869376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/AviKaner/status/1221097453698592769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221097453698592769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F https://twitter.com/KyleWOrton/status/1221096740901748737?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221096740901748737&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F During a speech in Miami, President Trump called out “the squad” in a way that not many people in the public eye ever have. And the way he did it is the exact reason he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, and, GOD-willing, why he’ll be re-elected this coming November. WATCH: TRUMP: “These people hate Israel — they hate Jewish people. I won’t name them. I won’t bring up the name of Omar, Tlaib, AOC — I won’t bring that name up. Won’t bring it up.” https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1213232601441460231?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1213232601441460231&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F476737-trump-lashes-out-at-squad-they-hate-jewish-people From The Hill: Trump sparked outrage on Capitol Hill in August when he said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should block Tlaib and Omar from visiting the country. Israel later did so, despite earlier vows by officials to welcome any members of Congress to the country. […] Omar in particular has raised eyebrows with her comments about Israel, suggesting that powerful Jews inside and outside of Congress are pushing “allegiance to a foreign country” over their support for the state.
