Recent mass shootings in America have once again set news headlines ablaze as the media covers calls from the anti-gun left for stricter gun control measures— at all levels of government. Gun control zealots live by the words of Rahm Emanuel:
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that, it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
Make no mistake about it, gun rights advocates — and the Second Amendment itself — are being attacked. It’s an unfortunate reality and one that requires a response. Which is why activists from North Dakota have planned a “Shall Not Be Infringed” rally for Sunday at the State Capitol in Bismarck.
According to the details listed on their Facebook Event, they’re inviting:
“… a coalition of grassroots North Dakotans to rally in opposition to ‘Red Flag’ gun control laws and to celebrate the Second Amendment.”
They also note:
“… there is a renewed national effort to promote [Red Flag laws]. A federal grant program is being pushed through the Congress to incentivize states to adopt them.”
On Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee passed along a Red Flag bill— together with a ban on high capacity magazines. The move caused Rep. Jim Jordan (R – Ohio) to blast the legislation and the efforts of those supporting it. His comments are worth watching. I’ll post video of them below.
You might recall that earlier this year the North Dakota Legislature dealt with its own version of a Red Flag law. In Fact, 8 of its 10 sponsors were Republicans. It was shameful. Thankfully, there was so much pushback in regards to the effort that it was easily defeated on the House floor in a very fitting 17-76 vote.
In the aftermath of its demise, we published an article suggesting we may not have seen the last of Red Flag in North Dakota. Less than a month after that, we published one detailing the efforts of U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R – South Carolina) to move forward with hearings about gun control on Capitol Hill— including Red Flag. In short, the present onslaught isn’t a surprise.
May we always keep in mind that liberty is always lost in the absence of vigilance.
