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.

Hillary Clinton Feeling the ‘Urge’ to Run for POTUS, & Defeat President Trump In November

Trump would welcome it…

Why is Hollywood and the media still so in love with Hillary Clinton? Sure, okay, Clinton went from first lady of Arkansas to first lady of the United States to senator to secretary of state to presidential nominee. From that standpoint, she has lived a pretty amazing life. But that’s not why celebrities and the MSM cares for her. They just have a sick obsession for anybody who hates Trump. After all of Clinton’s lies and deception, you’d think they’d finally move on. But no. From The Hill: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a recent interview that she feels “the urge” to beat President Trump in the coming election, and pledged to everything she can to “help elect the Democratic nominee” this year. Clinton’s comments came in response to a question she was asked in an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival, where her docu-series “Hillary” is appearing. During the interview, which was published on Tuesday, a reporter asked Clinton if she ever feels “the urge to think: ‘I could beat Donald Trump if I were running.’” Clinton bellowed, “Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome.” She screeched, “And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee.” Reactions: https://twitter.com/ArchieBunker19/status/1222221464226750469?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222221464226750469&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F https://twitter.com/back_ttys/status/1222228028845182977?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222228028845182977&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F https://twitter.com/back_ttys/status/1222223088684818432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222223088684818432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F On James Corden’s late night program, the former First Lady ripped into the president’s personal attorney like she got paid to do it.

Millions of Dollars From Joe Biden’s 2008 Campaign Went Directly to His Sister’s Consulting Firm

Seems like Biden helped out a number of family members financially…

It would seem that Joe Biden used his power as vice president to make many people in his family very, very wealthy. That is what malfeasance and true corruption really looks like, in case Democrats were still wondering. Imagine if Donald Trump Jr. was put on the board of a foreign gas company and made millions. Picture Ivanka Trump funneling money from her father’s campaign to her own clothing line. Would the media care then? Would their ears prick up? Here’s the latest on Joe, via Breitbart: Valerie Biden Owens, the sister of former vice president Joe Biden (D), who served as the campaign manager for his past presidential campaigns, directed $2.5 million from “Citizens for Biden” and “Biden for President Inc.” to her own consulting firm during her brother’s 2008 presidential bid alone, Breitbart senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer’s investigative blockbuster Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite reveals. Biden’s political tenure, as Schweizer’s book extensively details, has largely remained a complicated family affair, resulting in little-known financial benefits for not just his son Hunter Biden, but for his sister Valerie. Biden must not realize that the internet is forever. He doesn’t understand that words he has said on camera years ago will come back to haunt him. Recently, Joe pretty much owned himself when he was caught in a pretty damning lie. His smug attitude didn’t help matters, either. The problem here is that most of America will never see this story unless President Trump gives it a retweet. After all, Joe has the MSM in his back pocket, as does every liberal in America. From Fox News: DUBUQUE, Iowa — Joe Biden is the only 2020 presidential candidate who was in the White House Situation Room as Navy SEALs…
