What The American Medical Association is Calling For Regarding Guns is Very Alarming

Published

on

The American Medical Association has decided to jump in the fray concerning the hot button issue of gun rights in America, and they are not at all in favor of the Second Amendment.

In fact, the measures they are calling for and supporting are far more extreme than some of the most vocal anti-gun leftists groups already out there, and that is a super scary thought.

According to an announcement by the AMA on Wednesday, the organization is backing strict gun control measures including banning and confiscating firearms.

The measures, which the group called “common-sense,” include outlawing not only the sale of what the group referred to as “assault-type” weapons but also their possession, outlawing the possession of any firearms by adults under 21 years old, a national gun registry, requiring a license to own any firearms, and gun buyback programs among a number of other proposals. The group also called for a ban on the possession of bump-fire stocks, stated its opposition to teachers being allowed to carry firearms in schools, and stated its opposition to national concealed-carry reciprocity. The group also called for the passage of a law which would bar those convicted of domestic violence offenses from owning guns even though federal law already includes such a provision.

“People are dying of gun violence in our homes, churches, schools, on street corners and at public gatherings, and it’s important that lawmakers, policy leaders, and advocates on all sides seek common ground to address this public health crisis,” retiring AMA president David O. Barbe, M.D., MHA, said in a statement. “In emergency rooms across the country, the carnage of gun violence has become a too routine experience. Every day physicians are treating suicide victims, victims of domestic partner violence, and men and women simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. It doesn’t have to be this way, and we urge lawmakers to act.”

The positions backed by the AMA are stricter than those backed by most gun-control organizations, which have tended to shy away from calling for outright bans on the possession of any firearms. It also marks a new chapter in the group, which bills itself as a public health advocacy organization, embracing liberal political causes. Last month the group sided with Planned Parenthood and slammed the Trump administration for partially restricting federal funding of abortion providers.

The National Rifle Association weighed in on the announcement:

“The AMA’s stated vision is ‘to enhance the delivery of care’ and ‘partner with patients to achieve better health,'” Chris Cox, head of the gun-rights group’s Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon. “They should focus their efforts on the 250,000 deaths due to medical errors, the medical community’s complicity in the opioid crisis that takes 42,000 lives per year or the mental health crisis that results in nearly 50,000 suicides per year. The AMA should return to focusing on medical care and stop engaging in gun-control politics.”

Again, what people on the left don’t seem to understand is the purpose of the Second Amendment, the “why” of it’s existence.

Our Founding Fathers had the intelligence and foresight to know that over time, governments grow, and with that growth comes oppression. In order to ensure that the remanent of patriots in the future had the means to fight back against this oppression, they included the right to self-defense, AKA, the right to bear arms, in the Bill of Rights.

We are to have weapons to defend life, liberty, and property from evil men. Theft is tyranny, regardless of whether that tyranny is from criminals or from the government, therefore, we have a God-given right — the right to self defense can be found in the Bible — to protect ourselves from it no matter what form it takes.

If these folks could just get their minds wrapped around this concept and stop buying into the lie that government knows what’s best for the individual, maybe we could put the debate to rest.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

Published

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
