Sleepy Joe Biden is coming for your guns. And this time, it’s not the typical “I’ll buy back your rifles and steal what you don’t turn over.” He’s going a step further, moving the Democrats in the direction of a new woke form of gun control: he’s coming after 3D-printable ghost gun code. This, however, is merely a pipe dream that would trample on the first, fourth, and second amendments of the Constitution.
A Florida Constitutional Carry Bill has officially been introduced to the State House of Representatives, by State Representative Anthony Sabatini. At precisely 3:19 PM on October 1st, 2019 Sabatini filed HB 273 for Florida’s 2020 session. The 22-page bill would remove and outlaw any license requirements to carry a firearm. The Florida Constitutional Carry Bill, upon successful passage, would make Florida the 17th Constitutional Carry State.
HB 273 not only recognizes Floridan’s right to Constitutional Carry but also includes that non-residents are subject to the same laws and restrictions (or lack thereof) as residents. Notably, the bill also recognizes all other valid carry permits issued by other states, under the full faith and credit clause.
71Republic Contributor Conner Drigotas appeared on The Coalition Talk Radio with Pat Ford to discuss new media outlets like 71Republic. He argues that social media is in the process of decentralization. However, this will result in more unhealthy echo chambers. Outlets that promote dialogue and debate, like 71Republic, are essential to our national cohesion.
In the wake of the tragedies in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, gun control has once again entered the political discourse. Yet this time, the rhetoric takes a much more Orwellian turn. Privacy rights are now on the altar, soon to be sacrificed to the deity of progressive dogma surrounding gun control. And this time, Trump is the culprit.
From local officials to members of Congress to the President of the United States, plans are in motion to make Emergency Risk Protection Orders (ERPO’s), commonly called Red Flag Laws, the national norm.
An ERPO order allows for the confiscation by force of all firearms an individual owns. An individual served with an ERPO would lose their firearms for a period between three months and one year.
In Pennsylvania, Red Flag Laws are under serious consideration: even the state’s Republican Senator, Pat Toomey, supports them. In a recent article for the Pennsylvania Post, reporter Ed Mahon listed the eight factors a “judge or hearing officer would be required to weigh” when issuing an ERPO. Each has problems, but taken together they amount to one fact: without committing any crime, ERPO’s allow a judge or hearing officer to strip American citizens of a fundamental and constitutional right.
