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.

second amendment

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.

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.

1,200 Migrants Form New Caravan, & They Are Walking Directly to the Southern Border

That could be a problem…

The Mueller report was recently released and completely vindicated Donald Trump. Then, fierce Trump critic Michael Avenatti was arrested for fraud. These are things the American public should be talking about, as they are both major stories. And yet, there’s always something else going on. Now, it appears another migrant caravan is making its way to the country’s southern border – and they are 1,200 strong. How can Dems say with a straight face that this doesn’t call for a national emergency? Here are the details… From Reuters: A caravan of some 1,200 migrants from Central America and Cuba began moving towards the U.S. border from southern Mexico this weekend, migration authorities said on Sunday. The National Migration Institute said the migrants were already inside Mexico when they opted to form a caravan in the southern city of Tapachula on the border with Guatemala. More from The Daily Wire: The development is likely to do little to ease tensions over the Trump Administration’s immigration policies, or between the United States and Mexico. The latter pledged several months ago to do all it could to intercept migrant caravans before they made it too far through the country, offering migrants headed to the United States temporary asylum within Mexico and accelerated access to work permits and the Mexican immigration system. The strategies haven’t worked, though, and migrant caravans continue to push through Mexico to the United States, worsening a growing problem on the border, and crowding Mexican border towns with illegal immigrants in line to declare asylum at Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico border checkpoints. Vice President Mike Pence said the original migrant caravans were funded by leftist groups. The MSM didn’t blink. Residents of Tijuana, Mexico collectively uttered the three words Democrats hate hearing: Trump was right. They are referring to…

Pentagon Delivers Major Blow to Dems, Tells Congress It Authorized $1 Billion for Wall Construction

And here we gooooo…

President Trump’s biggest promise to the American people was that he’d deliver a wall on the southern border. He has delivered and he will continue to deliver. Trump knows that if he doesn’t come through, he may just be the first one-term president since George H.W. Bush. Now, the Pentagon has notified Congress that it has authorized $1 billion for new wall construction. The Pentagon notified Congress Monday night that it has authorized the transfer of $1 billion to begin new wall construction along the US-Mexico border, drawing immediate objections from Democratic lawmakers. A Pentagon budget reprogramming notification sent to Capitol Hill on Monday and obtained by CNN indicates that up to $1 billion will go toward building 57 miles of fencing, improving roads and other measures on the southern border. The Department of Defense authorized the Army Corp of Engineers to begin planning and construction for the project Monday night. The department will direct the funds toward 18-foot-high fencing along the Yuma and El Paso sections of the border, according to a letter acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan sent to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. One month ago, President Trump tweeted a video of the wall being built in New Mexico. As you’d imagine, the left was apoplectic.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has become known for her ramblings on Instagram Live. Given that she’s a Millennial, it’s a smart way for her to connect with fans. During a recent feed, AOC went off on everything from President Trump and the border wall to white supremacy and the failed Amazon headquarters deal.
