WEB Notes: Are you really surprised? We talked about this last June in an article titled, “Treason: Trump, GOP and the NRA look to ban Americans on “terror watch list” and “no fly list” from buying firearms“. Now it is escalating. Government never gives you more rights, they only remove them. Even “normal” guys like Trump.
Donald Trump was endorsed by the NRA (National Rifle Association) and he assured his voters he’d protect their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Considering his new desire to keep non-violent “criminals” from owning guns, this flip-flop on values needs to be known.
Scouring through conservative alternative media left much to be desired on this, while the left-leaning outlets are having a heyday. The truth is more important than partisan politics, so it bears mentioning that this won’t sit nicely in the belly of those on the political right. But Sessions vs. Binderup is a big deal to anyone who seeks freedom from the continued oppression of the federal government.
Trump administration lawyers are urging the Supreme Court to reject a 2nd Amendment claim that would restore the right to own a gun for two Pennsylvania men who were convicted more than 20 years ago of nonviolent crimes. –LA Times
