A bipartisan group of senators has reached an agreement on a gun-control package they intend to pass that looks like it could ultimately become law. It doesn’t go as far as some would like and goes further than others would prefer. Normally, that’s the mark of a good compromise.
However, Second Amendment rights are just that: rights. They’re really not something we should be winnowing away in the name of compromise.
But what about the measures themselves? If they ultimately save lives, isn’t that a big enough win? Well, I’m not a big fan of that reasoning, in general, but especially with what we’re looking at here.
Now, the deal doesn’t look like it’s as bad as it could be. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s still not a good deal. Let’s take a look at the proposals and see where the problems are.
First, a caveat: This is based on a proposal. There is, as of this writing, no bill we can read to see exactly how things are addressed. That may or may not change some of my analysis.For reference, let’s use this CNN explainer as a point of reference. 1. Encouraging […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
