In the Great state of Utah. When injustice calls, we answer. We will not be stepped on.
A conversation with North Carolina Lt. Governor candidate Mark Robinson.
On Friday, April 26, 2019, at the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting President Donald Trump announced the United States would be withdrawing from the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Former President Barack Obama had signed the Arms Trade Treaty on September 25, 2013. Through this action, President Trump has effectively stopped the ratification of this treaty by the United States Senate and withdraws our support for the global registry that was a part of this treaty.
As many know, I am a strong believer and supporter of the words found in the 2nd Amendment, in particular “Shall Not Be Infringed”. I will concede that these words were written in a different society at a completely different time… but so was the 1st amendment, the 3rd, the 4th, the 5th, and so on and so forth.
We consistently hear the anti-gun lobby talk about reasonable restrictions. The issue here is that they don’t have the slightest clue as to how firearms work or what laws are already on the books. In order to have a discussion on what is or isn’t reasonable for any subject, subject matter experts (SME) are required. Without them being involved in the discussion, nothing reasonable can come out of said discussions.
We can speculate the effectiveness of gun restriction legislation in a real-world example – the attempted bombing of Islamberg, NY.

The questions are thus, can any proposed 2019 legislation make the public safer and is it worth the trade-off in freedom?
The 2019 State of the State of New York announcement by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is expected to include several anti-Second Amendment proposals, a peek to what can be expected occurred in Rochester NY. On January 14, 2019, police were notified of an individual in possession of a shotgun in a residence. This resulted in deployment of SWAT and shutdown of the area in the early morning hours. The questions that should be asked are, what crime occurred and how much worse will the single Party Government of NY punish firearm owners?
As the 2019 legislative session for Federal and State Government approaches, there have been many concerned citizens we have spoken with who have a growing list of questions. In many parts of the nation, the consequences of the 2019 elections have resulted in multiple proposed legislation that impedes, restricts, or alters fundamental inherent Rights. At the same time, there are existing Bills that have begun the path to becoming law that some have forgotten that deserve attention. We will address 2 such Federal Bills.
S09191 addresses the ownership of a handgun. It proposes that for any revolver or pistol license to be approved or renewed, the applicant must first “volunteer” their passwords to all social media they may have, or had, for the prior 3 years for review. In addition, the applicant must allow a search of their internet activity via search engines for the prior year. The scope of the “voluntary” search is limited to Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram, and search engines Google, Yahoo and Bing.
The 2018 mid-term election is over. Among the many races that are awaiting absentee ballot…
