ISRA Thursday Bulletin - September 6, 2018

by Richard Pearson

The downhill slide to the Midterm Elections has begun and right on queue the Gifford’s have announced plans for ever-tightening firearm regulations.  The basic theme of all of this is that there are never enough gun control restrictions to satisfy them.  Their goal is the strangulation of the Second Amendment.  This includes the usual stuff like running gun dealers out of business by piling on costs and regulations, running the cost of firearm ownership as high as they can, taxation on firearms and ammunition and the outright banning of firearms.  The new twist seems to be to put a bureaucrat in charge of seeing if you and I are worthy enough to own a firearm.  Remember an attack on one class of firearms is an attack on all classes of firearms.

Levi Strauss has decided to sellout gun owners and join anti-gun campaigns and donate $1,000,000 to various anti-gun organizations.  The company has already joined the Everytown Business Leaders for Gun Safety, a Bloomberg front group.  The CEO and President of the company says he is not for the repeal of the Second Amendment and does not think gun owners are irresponsible.  Well, he needs to check the organizations he has gotten in bed with then because they are for repealing the Second Amendment and do think gun owners are irresponsible.  I did own one thing that is Levi Strauss, did being the operative word.  That thing is now residing in its new home - the dumpster. 

The Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing has provided California Senator Dianne Feinstein with an opportunity to blast so-called assault weapons by saying they were used in hundreds of school shootings.  Of the school shootings claimed by the anti-gunners, National Public Radio actually found that 161 never happened.  Of the 11 incidents they did find, the details did not say they were shootings but just that something occurred.  This is a pure propaganda ploy by Feinstein.  

Social media attacks of one kind or another are common against the Second Amendment or pro Second Amendment organizations.  One organization that I know of hired a forensic social media expert to see where they were all coming from.  Surprisingly, they found 80% of them were from the United Kingdom.  I have been warning everyone that the attacks on American gun owners and the Second Amendment is International and the U.N. is in the thick of it.  If there was ever an organization that needs to go the way of the dodo bird the U. N. is it.
