It’s not only to prevent a Democrat landslide in 2020. It’s because Democrats will settle for nothing less than gun confiscation.
It has been said that Republicans are the “party of stupid” and Democrats the party of something worse. In their reaction to Democrats’ demand for gun control several weeks ago, President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared ready to prove the comparison about the GOP.
Soon after the multiple-victim murders in Dayton and El Paso—the former by a Democrat and self-described leftist supporter of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the latter allegedly by someone who, for the sake of the environment, theorized “if we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can be more sustainable”—Trump and McConnell said they were considering two elements of Democrats’ decades-old civilian disarmament agenda: “universal” background checks and a ban on so-called “assault weapons” and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, including those for handguns.
If Trump and McConnell, encouraged by Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, who supports susceptible-to-abuse “red flag” gun confiscation laws; Rick Scott, who as governor of Florida signed legislation prohibiting young adults from buying firearms; and Pat Toomey, co-sponsor of a version of “universal” checks, cave to Democrats on guns, they might alienate enough voters to assure that Democrats re-take the White House and Senate, and hold the House of Representatives in the 2020 elections.
However, there are more important reasons Republicans should reject Democrats’ demands on guns.

On Monday, Florida’s Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey doubled down on last week’s pro-self-defense comments by making clear that police respond to 911 calls in minutes but criminals take lives in mere seconds.
On June 9 Breitbart News reported Ivey’s earlier comments, wherein he urged citizens to get a gun, get mentally prepared, and let terrorists scratch and claw to defend their own lives for a change.
No matter who you are or what your position is on guns, there is no denying the fact that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun–or a knife–is an armed and well-prepared citizen or law enforcement officer. There is no doubt that as soon as 911 is called law enforcement is on the way, however, until they arrive it is up to you and those with you to neutralize or eliminate the threat.
During a June 12 appearance on Fox & Friends, Ivey reiterated his message, stressing that police response to a 911 call is minutes for “the best law enforcement agencies” but “a violent criminal can take your life in a second.” He added, “So we need our citizens to be well prepared, to have already though out their emergency plan. If they’re concealed carry holders, carry their gun with them. It’s not doing any good at the house or in the car.”
Ivey stressed that “there is no way to predict where the next attack is coming from or even the next active shooter, so we want out citizens to be prepared to be the first line of defense.”
He stressed that terrorists are not prepared to be attacked “and when somebody turns it on them, their plan falls to pieces.”
This could be a huge win for supporters of the 2nd Amendment.
Kentucky State Rep. Diane St. Onge recently filed House Bill 13 (HB13) with language that instructs the Kentucky House, “to take all appropriate action to safeguard Kentuckian’s rights to possess firearms in accordance with the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and Section 1 of the Constitution of Kentucky.” (H/T ShallNot)
A bill of this magnitude that utilizes the anti-commandeering doctrine, which can be described as a legal doctrine formulated under several Supreme Court cases to refuse to help the feds enforce federal law, could be the much needed spark that starts the fire needed for more state houses to file and introduce similar legislation to protect American’s right to bear arms, and to allow states to make the rules without federal intervention.
St. Onge’s bill will nullify federal gun laws on the books for the state of Kentucky, which is shown in the bill language below:
GOP The Daily Dose

It’s no secret of my hate for Obama. I’m certainly not politically correct but I do try not to use the word hate loosely. My destain for Obama has nothing to do with skin color. It’s his arrogance, lawlessness and what he has done to fundamentally change our country. However, it goes deeper than policy. Obama’s disrespect for the office he holds and his distaste for United States Military is appalling. President Reagan made Americans feel good, believed in peace through strength, and had so much respect for the Oval office he wouldn’t remove his suit jacket. Could you imagine President Reagan funding and negotiating with our enemy?
There’s no doubt the President Barack Hussein Obama’s a Muslim. He despises everything to do with Christianity and traditional America. When Obama said “America is no longer a Christian Nation.” he was simply stating his goal to infiltrate America with Islam. Obama has done everything possible to destroy American freedom and liberty.
Obama’s scandals are so rampant that they are hard to name in a single breath. The most destructive of all his scandals is the most recent trade he made with America’s enemy. The trade of five Taliban terrorist for an American Muslim sympathizer. Traitor Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl deserted his platoon at war time. Under the Uniform Code of Military justice article 85 a deserter who desserts his post at the time of war is punishable by death. Obama’s goal was to distract the American people from V.A. scandal and many others lurking in the background.
The Daily Sheeple
While people like writer Dean Obeidallah over at The Daily Beast are calling for “political hardball” in regard to gun control, writing, “Anyone else tired of the same old bullshit we see after every gun-shooting spree?” and our congresspeople are busy introducing more anti-gun legislation every chance they get, yet another highly publicized mass shooting just occurred in Las Vegas.

The frustration and anger in America are growing.
So much so that one militia leader has publicly called for the assassination of the President of the United States.
In a post on his Facebook page, Christian American Patriots Militia leader Everest Wilhelmsen has claimed authority under the U.S. Constitution to take matters into his own hands.

Controversy is brewing around a school district in Denton, Texas, that is said to be using a United States history book that seems to summarize the Second Amendment inaccurately. However, the Denton Independent School District maintains it only uses the book as “supplemental” material and is “disseminating the correct information on the Second Amendment” from other texts.
But there are several other schools that appear to be using the book, too.
While everyone was watching news in Colorado during the final weeks of the recalls, Mississippi was instituting a new law to allow the open carry of firearms without a concealed carry permit.
House Bill 2 was passed in Mississippi’s last legislative session and signed into law by Governor Phil Bryant (R), but put on hold in July when Circuit Judge Winston Kidd issued an injunction to have the legislature “clarify it.”
On August 29 the Mississippi Supreme Court “unanimously upheld the… open carry law,” setting the stage for it to take effect.

The 2nd Amendment protects our bullets in its first half of the amendment, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state,..”. Well regulated meaning well practiced, well run, well drilled, able to shoot well and accurate from shooting practice, etc. To achieve this, the abundance of bullets and the ease to obtain them inexpensively is necessary and certain. To the California legislature and all other government bodies and agents, obstruction of the free, simple, and inexpensive access to a plentiful supply of ammunition by the militia or the people is a violation of the Constitution and your sworn oaths. I felt it necessary to write this since I just don’t hear anyone making this point or defending our bullets via the 2nd amendment.
While some may believe that the Second Amendment is not at stake on Thursday’s scheduled vote on the Democrat’s gun control package, the term ‘shall not be infringed’ in the 2nd amendment is crystal clear.
