I am not sure exactly what this meeting is about but anytime liberals have meetings about guns it is not good. The Senate Judiciary Committee is having a meeting entitled “Firearms in Commerce: Assessing the Need for Reform in the Federal Regulatory Process” which is rather vague but when they talk about reform or a regulatory process it cannot be good.
The other concern is the word Commerce is mentioned. Given how Democrats think they can regulate anything by invoking the Commerce Clause it is not a stretch to assume they might be trying to regulate firearms through commerce in a more restrictive way.
We will need to be vigilant and ensure these gun grabbers are not trying to backdoor us before they are thrown to the curb.
We must always be on the lookout because they will never allow us to protect ourselves unless we force them to leave us alone.
This man defended his family and property with a legal AK 47 and he was arrested for firing warning shots into the ground. Why did he shoot? The place he lives has the shot detector technology and he knew if he fired the police would arrive quickly.
Why was it necessary? A gang was congregating and threatening him. If the gun grabbers get their way he would be at the mercy of the gangs.
Which is just about as bad as being at the mercy of the government and its willful disregard of our right to keep and bear arms.
November cannot come soon enough.
Never surrender, never submit.

In the wake of the beating death of a black student (by other black students) in Illinois, the Revuum Jesse Jackson has taken to riding on one of the school buses there to highlight the violence that he calls a state of emergency.
“This is a state of emergency given patterns of violence and patterns of killing,” Jackson said in a news conference.
“This is ground zero of the urban policy,” Jackson said of Altgeld Gardens. “We need jobs, intervention for jobs, education, the safe passage of these children, and a sense of hope.” CBS2 Chicago
For those unfamiliar, the student who was recently murdered was Derrion Albert. Albert was caught in gang related violence outside a community center and was struck in the head with a board and then kicked while he lay dying.
Violence is a big problem in Illinois, particularly in Chicago. There are plenty of murders there, many with illegal firearms but some, like this one, with other weapons. The problem is societal and all the laws in the world (gun control or otherwise) will not stop the violence. The child who died was black and he was murdered by other black students. Black on black crime is a serious problem in many cities.
But blacks are not the only victims. Recently, a white kid was beaten by a group of black kids on a school bus. This too, took place in Illinois.
Interestingly, the beating was not labeled a racially motivated crime and Jesse Jackson did not ride that bus to ensure the white child’s safety.
Given that this is Jesse Jackson, I’m sure he rode the short bus.
