San Jose Mayor Moves to Gut the Second Amendment

Once again we see that these left-wing officials don’t really care about doing anything about crime.

Many local governments are moving to implement radical anti-Second Amendment rules and the latest example is going on in San Jose, California, where Mayor Sam Liccardo is moving to gut his citizens’ right to self protection.

Liberal officials in the states are leading the way in undermining the Second Amendment quite despite recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings that our gun rights are a personal right that can’t be taken away.

Mayor Liccardo is a perfect example of how local officials are piling onerous regulations onto gun owners and gun dealers in an effort to make selling, buying, and owning a gun simply too difficult for law abiding Americans.

As the Mercury News reports:

Mayor Sam Liccardo wants gun retailers in San Jose to video record all firearm purchases, ban home gun sales, and tighten up licensing for handguns, as part of a suite of changes to the city’s gun safety ordinance.

Liccardo claims his new rules will limit “straw buyers,” or people who buy guns legally only to illegally hand them over to someone else. And naturally anti-Constitution groups love the plan.

Under the proposal, co-signed by Vice Mayor Chappie Jones, the city would ban the sale of guns or ammunition from residences in San Jose and require a license for the sale, transfer, or advertisement within the city of concealable firearms and ammunition. In addition, gun retailers would be required to display signs giving information about gun laws, suicide prevention and domestic violence.

At a news conference at San Jose Police Department headquarters Tuesday, Liccardo was accompanied by Police Chief Eddie Garcia, the local chapters of the advocacy groups Moms Demand Action and March for Our Lives, the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office, and Pastor Danny Sanchez, chaplain for the crisis-response team of the Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force. Nationally, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Giffords Law Center also endorsed the city’s efforts.

One gun shop owner, though, noted that the rules won’t do much to hurt criminals but it will certainly hurt regular folks who want to protect themselves.

“This is just making it harder for honest people. These criminals, why don’t they go after them instead?” a San Jose gun shop owner told the paper.

Once again we see that these left-wing officials don’t really care about doing anything about crime. Their main purpose is to prevent regular, law abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves.

These liberals want the sheeple disarmed.

Trump 2020 Campaign Fires McGhan’s Law Firm

Turnover is nothing new for the Trump White House.

Published

One of the key players identified in the pages of the Mueller report is Don McGhan, former counsel to the President. McGhan’s name hasn’t previously been this far into the forefront, but a revelation from within Robert Mueller’s inconclusive dissertation regarding possible obstruction of justice by the President has made him nearly a household name. McGhan’s infamy arises from a passage in the report detailing his reaction to a question by President Trump regarding possible conflicts of interest that Robert Mueller and his team may have had. After McGhan’s insubordination became public knowledge with the release of Mueller’s epic tome, President Trump’s 2020 campaign team have decided to no longer retain legal services from his firm. The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president. Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs. Here’s the kicker… But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members. This certainly won’t surprise many within Trump’s inner circle, as his administration has been rife with turnover during the 2+ years since the President was inaugurated.

Trump Approval Numbers are SHOCKING After Mueller Report Release

National Emergency

The mainstream media’s nonstop speculation on the meaning of the Mueller report has certainly had an impact on the psyche of the nation. For two days, (that feel like an eternity), the infotainment industry has been parsing nearly every word from within the 400+ page report compiled by Robert Mueller in his role as Special Counsel. While Mueller was unable to charge the President with a crime, the mainstream media is now clinging to hope that congressional democrats will keep the fight alive….somehow. This cacophony of progressive nonsense has manifested itself in President Trump’s approval ratings. The number of Americans who approve of President Donald Trump dropped by 3 percentage points to the lowest level of the year following the release of a special counsel report detailing Russian interference in the last U.S. presidential election, according to an exclusive Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll. The poll, conducted Thursday afternoon to Friday morning, is the first national survey to measure the response from the American public after the U.S. Justice Department released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report that recounted numerous occasions in which Trump may have interfered with the investigation. Where does Trump stand? According to the poll, 37 percent of adults in the United States approved of Trump’s performance in office, down from 40 percent in a similar poll conducted on April 15 and matching the lowest level of the year. That is also down from 43 percent in a poll conducted shortly after U.S. Attorney General William Barr circulated a summary of the report in March. The President has communicated his displeasure at the continued grievance of the democrats via Twitter, where he has lashed out several times since the release of the Mueller report.
