*EDITOR’S NOTE: The mainstream media is predictable circling back to gun control and focusing on all of the mass shootings now as the COVID hoax fears wane. It is all about the agenda.
Last month, having no recent mass shootings to mention, President Joe Biden pulled on American’s heartstrings by evoking emotions tied to the 2018 Parkland shooting and urged Congress to implement unprecedented gun bans, magazine bans, ammo bans, and going after gun manufacturers.
“The Parkland students and so many other young people across the country who have experienced gun violence are carrying forward the history of the American journey. It is a history written by young people in each generation who challenged prevailing dogma to demand a simple truth: we can do better. And we will,” Biden said in a statement.
“This Administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed that call. We will take action to end our epidemic of gun violence and make our schools and communities safer. Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets.”
As Rahm Emanuel famously stated in 2008, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”
Now, one month after exploiting a two-year-old tragedy, there have been two mass shootings in a week giving the establishment anti-gun crowd plenty of fuel for their fire. Oddly enough, both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris waited over 24 hours to even respond to the shooting in Boulder. However, when Biden finally spoke, he called for banning “assault weapons.”
“I don’t need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, to take common-sense steps that will save lives in the future and to urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to act,” Biden said in remarks at the White House following Monday’s shooting. “We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again. I got that done when I was a senator. … We should do it again.”
But Biden didn’t even need to respond as their army of anti-gun warriors waged a massive campaign on social media declaring that anyone who wanted to keep their guns — is a Nazi. What’s more, they have been preparing anti-gun legislation for an event like this since before the election.
While few details have been released in regard to the tragic shooting that unfolded in Boulder, Colorado, the reactions from the mainstream media and their millions of followers are predictably the same. As the right sends their gratuitous thoughts and prayers, the left lambasts the Second Amendment and calls for restricting the rights of their fellow citizens.
Unfortunately, neither side addresses the issue that could prevent such tragedies in the future which is attacking the reason why a psychopath desires to murder innocent people instead of defending or attacking the tool they used to do it.
Nevertheless, the anti-gun crowd has a slew of tyranny ready to roll out in their futile attempt to stop mass murderers by removing a single tool in a limitless sea of potentially deadly tools. As history has shown us, removing this tool only hurts the law-abiding citizens who are no longer allowed to have them.
As TFTP reported in December, before Joe Biden took office, his administration revealed major plans for eviscerating the Second Amendment. Biden has been an outspoken gun-grabber and on his campaign website, he’s stated that he will use executive action to enforce gun control.
The recent mass shootings will only add fuel to the fire that is the government’s plan to disarm America. While the slogan from the left used to be, “no one is coming for your guns,” it has now shifted into actual policies that lay out exactly how and when they will come for your guns.
The new boss — who is the same as the old boss, contrary to what many believe — is presiding over a Congress that will consider the most tyrannical gun control measures in the history of America, HR127, known as the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act.
As we reported last month, this bill is, without a doubt, the most tyrannical gun control bill ever proposed. Like all gun control measures, this bill would hit the poor and minority communities the hardest. Its massive scope would also turn tens of millions of legal, law-abiding gun owners into felons overnight.
Former vice-presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party, Spike Cohen points out that “HR127 would be most heavily enforced against those with the least ability to defend themselves in court: the poor, and minorities. It will also make things much worse in marginalized communities, where only police and criminals will have guns.”
In a post to Facebook, Cohen narrowed down some of the bill’s most ominous points that would target every single gun owner in the country.
Firearms License required for any new gun purchases or ownership transfers.
Licensee Must be 21, complete a 24 hour gun safety training course, and must undergo a psych evaluation.
Multi-tier license. Individual license for ownership and display of “antique” firearm, standard firearm license, and “military style” license.
Military license requires additional 24 hour safety course.
Licensing is revoked immediately for anyone indicted of a crime in which the sentence lasts longer than 1 year.
This heavily discriminates against anyone who has ever seen a therapist or had to get mental health treatment, such as victims of abuse and people with depression, and veterans seeking care for PTSD. Depression and addiction are mentioned specifically as reasons for licensing denial.
Also, gun licensing is expensive, which makes ownership less accessible for those who need their own protection most.
Requires an $800 annual government insurance fee for all current and future gun owners, to be paid to the Attorney General EVERY YEAR.
There is no grandfather clause, meaning this applies to anyone that owns a gun at all, not just those who purchase a new firearm after this passes.
This fee will certainly go up each year. It’s yet another barrier for those in poverty to be able to defend themselves.
Mandatory Nationwide Firearms Registration & Database
ALL firearms owned shall be registered under penalty of up to $150,000 and 15 years in prison.
Serial, make, model, date, identity of owner, and the location of where the firearm will be stored to be collected and maintained in a database by the US Attorney General.
Names and information of all those who may have access to the firearms shall be collected as well.
This information to be accessible by state, local, and federal police, military, as well as state and local governments.
Ammunition and Magazine Bans
Bans .50cal and larger ammunition outright.
Bans all mags that hold more than 10 rounds
This ammo is mostly used for hunting and is rarely used against people. The most common handguns and rifles use magazines that exceed this arbitrary limit, which makes TENS OF MILLIONS of law-abiding gun owners felons overnight.
Illegal ownership of even a single round of banned ammo will result in up to $100,000 in fines AND 20 years in prison.
This bill was originally presented last year and reinvented this year with a whole new level of tyranny added to it both in the government and out of it. For example, the registration data will be made public. Given the cancel culture mass hysteria-inciting media frenzy as of late, this list could be used by big tech and woke cults to target their political rivals. They could seek out this data and use it to implement blacklists, social media bans, and any other number of ways the cancel culture attacks those with whom they disagree.
As we reported in December, many of these gun control measures are already on the president’s agenda, which will go even further now that mass shootings are back on the mainstream media’s list of hot topics.
This was a Boomer or crony capitalist toy / status symbol, “earned” by being a good boy. No independent minded were ever supposed to touch the button of the shiny toy / status symbol or even be seen in the (f)un store, which is plainly (vehemently) intended to service functionaries.
So, I have been blocked from some places, for saying the following. Just saying:
The same metal milling device, that is literally used in the (f)un factory, can scan a photo of a key, to make a replica, that opens padlocks. No physical doorkey is actually needed, so much as the image of one.
The plastic printer idiot did not need to confer with brand names, to honor their intellectual property, which they were ultimately going to sell to replacement demographics and foreign countries, in support of anti-family and post-Apartheid policies.
The 99%ers around me deserve no power of life and death, to be honest.
Also, more fabrication skills would be needed to complete the project.
Most of the people affected had no sincere inclinations toward self sufficiency or tyranny control, were most likely state interests, licensed to commit some form of piracy.
This looks like they will punishing honest people much more than criminals but that’s not new I guess.

Prepare and Stay Well,
Notice the age of the last two shooters and several before? They are children. A lot of these shootings could be averted just by raising the age to purchase a firearm. Say 25 or 30? This would stop the bullied high schoolers from “showing them.”
I’ve heard this thing for the last 50 yrs or so by the Democrats, ” never let a good tragedy go to waste “. when I first heard of this many years ago, I thought it was all bull manure and someone was just making it up. but after watching Obama and his crew ( his attorney general made the statement on Tv ), they really mean it and are doing it.
To any “white” (communist, racist black, or Islamist) people considering going out in a blaze of glory —
the leftists will just misremember it, to suit their own narrative.
Whatever pea shooter or cannon you bring will be the latest make and model they wanted to ban.
Whatever ethnicity, religion, or scientific views will be mutated to fit their order of business.
cooler heads better prevail on this gun issue.
I will ignore all these laws/mandates etc.
I have already lost all my guns and mags.
Pvc pipe with caps work wonders for lost guns.
Only metrosexuals and women will give up their guns
Everything the State does is ultimately only to increase and maintain its power and control, it’s that simple. It is the central facet of its nature. It wants unrivaled power, it demands unquestioning obedience, it seeks to be the sole dispenser of legitimacy and truth in all the affairs of the people. It is not gov’t of, by, or for the people, this is a silly notion of the ignorant.
The State has several tools and methods to achieve and then maintain its power, regardless what type of oligarchy (the US is a mix of oligarchy and plutocracy). In reality, the State has an absolute and unrelenting hatred of personal liberties, individual rights and freedoms, Constitutional rights, whatever you call them. It sees these rights as a challenge to its power.
All rights and freedoms and liberties come from our Creator, not the State, not even the Constitution. We are endowed with these rights by virtue of being born a human. The State did not, nor can it, give us our rights, and it has no legitimate power to take them away. Rather, the real chief responsibility of gov’t to is to protect our rights. Only our Creator can endow us with our rights – period.
The State will employ any tactic, exploit any measure, use any tool (no matter how immoral, devious, or illegitimate) to achieve its goals. Another feature of the nature of the State is to mistrust its people and be suspicious of them, even to despise its own citizens.
A method to further reduce the rights and powers of people is to substitute a privilege for a right. When gov’t allows something it is a granted privilege, not an irrevocable right. Gov’t is quick to curtail rights, but eager to grant privileges. The difference is rights empower people against the State, privileges do not and cannot. Gov’t can allow same-sex marriage, abortion, denial of biological gender, use of choice of public restrooms, etc. and if that’s your thing sorry. But these are only privileges, not civil rights, because they do not empower one against the State. Only civil rights empower a people against the State. If you have been awake you see the gov’t passes laws to grant more privileges regularly but is doing its damndest to limit our Constitutional rights. The State seeks to unravel society and therefore disempower it so that it cannot present a cohesive challenge to the State.
The State is a calculating remorseless entity that will do anything to survive and maintain supremacy. History has shown it will create wars, mass murder its own citizens, and totally deprive its people of all human rights. One day, our gov’t will no longer tolerate comments like this one. Already it censors free speech and seeks to control the internet and all other forms of mass communication.
Once total power and control is achieved by the State even those granted privileges will eventually be revoked. Don’t believe me? Where in the world, in any country that is communist, authoritarian, Islamic, or in anywhere in Asia do they allow “privileges” as in most Western nations.
More counterfeit paper from the counterfeit organization that nobody is listening to.
This is what happens when you have a country full of queers,trannies,and Phaggots,when a high percentage of the politicians are sodomites and child molesters,with a couple of generations of femmie little soy boys who grew up without a father, (no fault of their own)and sat around the house all day watching TV, and then went shopping with momma.Then add all the illegal alien refuse that’s filled the country that are happy to be slaves as long as they have a house and a smartphone,who take the place of the 60,000,000 babies that were butchered and murdered at government sanctioned abortion clinics.They figure it’ll be easy pickins getting the guns from these cowards.
gubmint dindus, suck gun control **** @ your own risk
The American officialdom condemns and criticizes China, but occasionally we hear various officials praising China. To clear up this frequent contradiction here is the truth of the matter; officialdom (both elected and appointed) publicly condemns China, but behind office doors they envy China’s political structure. Our officialdom dreams of unrivaled statist authoritarian power, to not have term limitations, to not have to respond to their constituents, to be corrupt with never being required to answer for it, where lies, deceit, and propaganda pass for good gov’t, where one can have their political enemies indefinitely held in gov’t cages or simply charged with a crime and executed with little notice.
The Chinese gov’t is incredibly corrupt, but so is the Amer. gov’t. I read a quote by H. L. Mencken used by the author of a recent interesting article on another site about the nature of gov’t. “People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and when need be, murdering those who resist?”
The State is so vile, so bereft of virtue or legitimacy, so viscerally corrupt, and so morally bankrupt there is no fixing it. Using the courts and the legal tools of today to fix gov’t is like trying to cure terminal cancer with cigarettes and booze. The State, with its gov’t and officialdom is that cancerous mass in the US body, it has made the whole national body sick and is dragging it down to its destruction.
You can’t over rule the constitution with an executive order
Mʏ brother suggested I might like this ѡeb sіtе.
He was totally right. This publisһ truly made my day.
You cann’t believe simply how muｃh time I haԁ sⲣent
foг this information! Thank you!
Instead of adding laws (which don’t work) just haul the offender to court and when they’re found guilty take them out and publicly hang them and these things will stop happening to you.
With prez Bidet being so frail and falling apart at the seams – I wonder who helped him pick up the boulder??
Weapons of war? you would be a dam fool to take an AR15 into war..
Gun laws cannot be enforced by executive orders. Sloppy Joe even recently said that to the public. Next the states have the authority over this NOT the Federal Government so it is going to be challenged and shot down. But probably going to cause much damage. This is how the demons work to cause damage and then say oh well. This will NOT fly but will Flop.
The .gov uses the commerce clause of the Constitution to regulate interstate commerce…any part of anything that crosses a state line, or the country’s borders, including guns. This is how they ban raw milk and imported guns…liberal interpretation of the commerce clause.
Intrastate commerce not so much. But even the raw material that goes into a product makes that product fall under their oversight if it crosses a state line, or so they claim.
