"All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms." -- Diane Feinstein 

Over the weekend, Houston’s democrat Mayor Sylvester Turner held a gun buyback event in a church parking lot where residents could turn in their firearms and receive a gift card ranging from $50 to $200 with no questions asked.

let us start with SA’s own words:

The essence of Lenin’s speeches during this period was “They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot.

When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet.”

And it was.

-Saul Alinsky “rules for radicals”

saul and his adherents appreciate and ape such aims.

We live in a dangerous world. For the 70,000 officers at Homeland Security and the 40,000 officers within the Department of Justice, proper training and equipment are vital to their daily law enforcement duties. Over a nearly two-year period - the last years of the Obama administration (FY2015 - FY2016), these law enforcement agencies spent $138 million on new guns and ammunition. That seems reasonable.

What’s curious, however, is that traditionally administrative agencies spent more than $20 million. Four notable examples:

A newly leaked document provided by an FBI whistleblower reveals how the Bureau classifies American citizens it deems to be potential “Militia Violent Extremists” [MVEs].

An elderly convenience store owner in California is being hailed as a hero after he shot at a would-be robber who ran out of the store screaming that his arm was “shot off.”

Shocking surveillance footage from Norco Market & Liquor in the 2800 block of Clark Avenue in Norco, Calif., showed a masked assailant entering the business at about 2:47 a.m. with an AR-15-style rifle pointed at the 80-year-old store owner.

A startling new report via AmmoLand News outlines how the US Department of Commerce Census Bureau asked major holster manufacturers/providers for order numbers, product descriptions, and locations where the items were shipped. 

Some holster companies rejected the Department of Commerce's request for "commodity flow surveys" related to their sold products.

Bearing Arms reported several firearm-related companies had their corporate accounts canceled by UPS. Not only that, but some of these companies also have had packages damaged or lost while in transit to customers. 

One ammunition distribution company called "The Gun Food" reported out of a recent 18,000 rounds of ammunition shipped with UPS, only 6,000 made it to the end destination. 

The House of Representatives, led by Democrat Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, has passed a ban on assault weapons, and they were assisted by two Republicans.

The ban was approved narrowly in the House with a vote of 217 – 213 and now heads to the Senate where it is not likely to break the filibuster.

Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania and Chris Jacobs of New York were the only two Republicans to vote in favor of the legislation, Fox News reported.

The Canadian government wants people's semi-automatic rifles. They unveiled a new gun buyback plan to purchase "assault-style" weapons that the federal government banned in early 2020. 

Public Safety Canada released a statement last week indicating that the gun buyback program is "mandatory for individuals to participate," according to CTV News
