John Kasich warns Republicans: Young voters coming for you in November if gun control doesn’t get done

Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Republican lawmakers need to beware of a wave of young voters coming out against them in November if no real action on gun control is taken.

Kasich said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that protests such as the March For Our Lives on Saturday show young Democrats are motivated to go to the polls in November. Since that’s a voting constituency that rarely comes out to vote in midterm elections, trouble could be brewing for the GOP, Kasich said.

“We’ve already seen what the public thinks. We saw an election in Pennsylvania where the people are basically saying they can’t stand what’s happening in Washington. And, yeah, I really do believe that,” Kasich said when asked if Republicans should be worried.

However, Kasich also had a warning for the students who organized the march and the people who attended: It’s going to take sustained effort to change anything.

Kasich said there are firmly entrenched powers who are going to resist gun control legislation at every step. It will only be through consistent and concerted effort that change will come, he said.

“The fact of the matter is it’s a massive effort here and it reminds me of some of the protests that have changed the people in office. But they have to keep it up,” he said. “If they don’t keep it up, those that want no change will just sit on their hands. They will never come out and say anything. They will just try to stall, stall, stall until the steam comes out of the kettle.”

“The fact is if we can keep the pressure on we’re not going to change everything overnight, but you can get significant change, and I hope so. And if they do not, if they do not bring about change, I think people should be held absolutely accountable at the ballot box and no question about it.“

Democrat candidate for Sheriff suggests killing people to take their guns — Bloomberg moms laugh, applaud

In a video posted to Twitter on Saturday, Buncombe County, North Carolina, DemocratSheriff candidate R. Daryl Fisher suggested to a group affiliated with Michaels Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action that he would have no problem killing defiant law-abiding gun owners to take their firearms.

“What about people that already had weapons? Well, I’m gonna tell you now, don’t buy into the scare tactics, don’t believe the scare tactics, because you’ve heard people say ‘You’ll have to pry my guns from my cold dead hands,’” he said.

“OK, he shrugged to delighted laughter and applause.

Here’s the video:

His comments angered a number of people, prompting Fisher to respond on Facebook:

This post is for all of the people who have posted false information about my position on proposing sensible gun legislation as a candidate for Buncombe County Sheriff. As a citizen, human being, and Candidate for Sheriff, I would like to recommend the following legislation:
Ban the sale of high capacity magazines;
Ban the sale of any mechanism that will allow a weapon to fire in rapid succession;
Raise the age to purchase any weapon to age 21;
And ensure proper background checks are done for purchase permits.
These are sensible measures and are a big step at protecting our communities. Stop pointing fingers and bring solid and sensible solutions instead of spreading false information and propaganda.

Fisher also claimed his statement was a “joke” in another Facebook post:

The crowd laughed and I made a joke. I admit the joke was a mistake and I should not have joked. But I go on to relay that the government cannot take away any guns or any items that were legally sold before any new laws take effect. To do this would be unconstitutional because that would constitute what is called an ex post facto law. Responsible gun owners have nothing to worry about. We have to do something different because what has been done is not working.

A “joke?” Seriously?  Killing gun owners is now a joke?

Writing at Oathkeepers, David Codrea observed:

What he’s obscuring is that law enforcement officials can be extremely influential in persuading lawmakers to act, and as sheriff, he would enthusiastically enforce citizen disarmament edicts. That he would take an oath to the Constitution seems not to trouble Fisher, as there are evidently no citizen disarmament laws he would refuse to issue to his subordinates or to obey himself.

He would enthusiastically enforce forbidding citizens old enough to serve in the military or the “unorganized militia” of U.S. Code from purchasing guns. He would ban standard capacity magazines for everyone (except the “Only Ones”), along with any firearm that has “some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia [or] is any part of the ordinary military equipment, or that its use could contribute to the common defense.”

Fisher’s “joke” didn’t sit too well with many.

The only joke is you and the idea that you should have any kind of public leadership position. You’re a fascist. If you get elected people need to make it impossible for you to function,” one person said on Facebook.

 I saw the video where you laughed about taking guns from people by force. That can’t be explained away. So your oath as a police officer means nothing and your oath as a sheriff, if your county is unfortunate enough to vote you in, will mean nothing. Which means you are a hypocrite and a liar and not worthy to wear a badge,” another person said.

The actions in which you advocate in your comment to the moms demand action is the surest way to plunge this country in to the next civil war sir are a mental midget who should be precluded from holding the highest law enforcement job of your county …I hope the voters in your county defeat you in a stellar fashion or better yet why don’t you just withdrawal from the race and save them the trouble and you the humiliation,” a third person added.

Fisher’s Facebook page was hammered with a number of similar comments.

Codrea further said that Fisher is “one of three Democrat candidates out of a field of seven,” and Buncombe County “is the only Democratic bastion in western North Carolina” and it went big for both Obama and Hillary.

“They’ll be ‘OK’ with a badged gun-grabber,” he concluded.

Demagogue David Hogg declares start of revolution: We’re going to make gun control ‘the voting issue’

While speaking at the anti-gun March for Our Lives raly in Washington, D.C., profane left-wing demagogue David Hogg declared that he and his uninformed Democrat Party-endorsed followers will make gun control “the voting issue” in the upcoming elections.

“Today we are going to start a revolution,” he said during an appearance on “Good Morning America.”

“If you listen real close, you can hear the people in power shaking …. We’re going to make this the voting issue. We’re going to take this to every election, to every state and every city,” he told the assembled audience rallying for an end to the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Real Clear Politics posted a transcript of his speech:

DAVID HOGG: The cold grasp of corruption shackles the District of Columbia. The winter is over. Change is here. The sun shines on a new day and the day is ours.

First-time voters show up 18% of the time in midterm elections? Not anymore.


Who here is going to vote in the 2018 election?


If you listen real close you can hear the people in power shaking. They have gotten used to being protective of their position, through the safety of inaction. Inaction is no longer safe, and to that we say no more.


96 people die every day from guns in our country. Yet most representatives have no public stance on guns. To that, we say, no more.

We are going to make this a voting issue. We are going to take this to every election, to every state and every city. We are going to make sure the best people get in our elections to run, not as politicians, but as Americans.

Because this is not cutting it.

When people try to suppress your vote, and people stand against you because you are too young, we say no more. When politicians say your voice does not matter because the NRA owns them, we say no more. When politicians send their thoughts and prayers with no action, we say no more. To those politicians supported by the NRA that allow the continued slaughter of our children and our future, I say get your resumes ready.


Today is the beginning of spring, and tomorrow is the beginning of democracy.

Now is the time to come together, not as Democrats, not as Republicans, but as Americans.

Americans of the same flesh and blood that care about one thing and one thing only, the future of this country, and the children that are going to lead it.

They will try to separate us in demographics, they will try to separate us by religion, race, congressional district and class. They will fail. We will come together. We will get rid of these public servants that only serve the gun lobby and we will save lives. You are those heroes.


Lastly, let’s put the USA over the NRA. This is the start of the spring and the blossoming of our democracy. Let’s take this to local legislators and let’s take this to midterm elections. Without the persistence of voters in America getting up to every election, democracy will not flourish. But it can and will. To those politicians that’s a change will not come, I say we will not stop until every man, every woman, every child, and every American can live without fear of gun violence, and to that I say no more. Thank you, I love you all.

Hogg ended his angry Hitleresque speech with a raised fist, Jim Hoft said at the Gateway Pundit.  CSPAN, however, did not show that ending of his speech.

How will that work out?  Consider these responses on Twitter:

Twitchy added:

A movement with messengers that try to make millions of law-abiding Americans complicit in mass murder might not catch on very well, but good luck with that, gun grabbers

We agree…  It’s a lot like insulting half the country as racist deplorables.  And look at how that turned out…

Bombshell: Obama Admin Ordered FBI To Remove 500,000 Fugitives From No Gun Buy List

Nothing better than dead Americans to convince voters to surrender their Second Amendment rights.  And, no one better to count on to kill those Americans than fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants.

Yesterday, under questioning from California’s gun confiscation Senator Dianne Feinstein, acting FBI deputy director David Bowdich testified that former President Barack Obama ordered the FBI to delete over 500,000 fugitives from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Senator Feinstein: “It’s my understanding that under federal law fugitives cannot legally purchase or possess guns We’ve heard from local law enforcement that the Justice Department has issued a memo that forced the FBI NICS background check database to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants because it was uncertain whether those fugitives had fled across state lines.

“Mr. Bowdich, can you describe why this determination was made by the Justice Department?”

Deputy Director Bowdich: “That was a decision that was made under the previous administration.  It was the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel that reviewed the law and believed that it needed to be interpreted so that if someone was a fugitive in a state, there had to be indications that they had crossed state lines.”

So, let’s see. 

  • Obama ordered his Department of Justice to give “military style assault “ weapons to Mexican drug smugglers
  • Obama ordered 500,000 of the violators most probable to use a weapon in the commission of a crime to become invisible to NICS

And, Obama’s holdovers – Rosenstein and Mueller – are now leading the witch-hunt against the man who stands between Obama’s gun confiscation plan and our Second Amendment rights, President Trump.

No wonder Obama ignored the law to defeat Donald Trump and then, after Trump won, his tool James Comey continued undermining the president.  He knew that an honest president, one who had no interest in preserving the phony left-right paradigm, would expose everything he and Hillary had planned.

Obama was the poster boy for why the Framers gave us the Second Amendment.  That should stand as a warning to every patriot.

They want my guns?  They’ll have to take them from my cold, dead, hands.


Dems Stop Fighting For Gun Control, Demand MUCH BIGGER BAN Now – They’ve Lost Their Minds!

The recent call for gun control seems to have simmered to a low boil. Liberal Democrats realize that banning particular guns probably won’t happen thanks to the fact that an AR-15 is a single shot weapon, much like a handgun, and they will face an expensive uphill battle that not even Bernie Sanders could afford on his magical source of income. Changing gun laws to include more in-depth background checks, mental health checks, and police report investigations would be more sufficient causes to fight for instead of trying to ban all guns and control the American people by violating their second amendment Constitutional rights.

Some liberal Democrats have cruised over to a much more significant subject than guns. One liberal journalist went on a major Tweet episode where he shuns moto vehicles and mostly appears as though he wants to ban cars. It wasn’t that long ago when someone from BuzzFeed stated that vehicles don’t belong on the road. Even BuzzFeed readers probably gaffed at that claim.

The Twitter user is David Klion. Brian Anderson from DownTrend found his Tweets and pointed out the comedy behind them and the concept of banning cars. Just imagine you had to walk 20 miles to work every day because a liberal got their way and had cars banned. Or imagine hearing the clip-clop of your horse ride to work. Wouldn’t that be amazing? I suppose so many Democrats wouldn’t care if cars were banned considering how many of them don’t go to work every day and live on the government teet of welfare. In particular, those who are able-bodied and refuse to work, or illegal immigrants just here to milk the system and send the money to their family in their homeland.

Here are Klion’s Tweets:

People who think like this, and are not being sarcastic, belong in a museum that features the liberally insane. Driving should be abolished as much as clean drinking water should be banned.

We built our cities because we are a great civilization which has made incredible breakthroughs. If David does not prefer to be around cars, then perhaps he would move to a third world location in Africa where it’s mostly villages, no running water, and he has to hunt for his food. Perhaps he can fire a Tweet-storm at an animal who merely falls over in shock after reading his liberal lunacy.

In this case, then we’re also banning trains, boats, planes, and any other form of transportation that’s larger than a car. The only thing that might survive the ban is the pint-sized smart car which probably weighs as much as a dumpster filled with all of Klion’s tweets printed out and set on fire.

Wrong. Sad. Nope. People don’t feel bad about driving. People do feel bad about being late when they should have left five minutes earlier, which is me just about every day. He doesn’t need to wait for technology to make cars obsolete. He can just make himself obsolete. Then again, his Tweets are fun to read because they make average people realize how sane they really are compared to the DC native who states he’s a 5th generation New Yorker. Maybe he dislikes cars because traffic in NYC is pitiful?

What about people who live just outside of the city, where there are no skyscrapers and things are not within walking distance? There are areas between urban cities and the suburbs that still require vehicles to get around. At this point, he’s no longer making much sense, and it appears as though his tweets are a babbling reach for logic, of which there is none present.

Maybe it was built around the fact that people wanted things close by and they established cities from the center and expanded. A city will obviously need roads to travel from place to place, regardless of whether it’s by foot, bus, car, bike, or horse. In fact, you can find all of those forms of transportation in almost any city with fair weather.

What about delivery trucks who bring supplies to the city from factories located outside the city? How would they get around if there were no roads? There are so many holes in the “ban cars” logic that it’s just another far left reach that would point humanity back to obscurity.

Cars aren’t mandatory. People can walk, bike, or run to work or around town if they chose. No one forces anyone to buy or lease their own vehicle. That’s the extremist coming out of Klion. People drive by choice, not by mandatory rules. If someone works at a job that is far away, then they can take a bus, train, or walk four hours early if they chose. No one forces anyone to drive a motor vehicle. Most people just chose to and it’s their right to do it.

Another right that we won’t be taking away anytime soon.

Here’s a possible solution for David Klion:


An Illinois House of Representatives bill labeled HB 1465 has now passed with a vote of 54-51 on February 28th. The bill was sponsored by the gun grabbing Illinois Democrat Representative Michelle Mussman. What is perhaps the worst part of this is that after being introduced in the upper house by Senate President Democrat from Chicago, John Cullerton, the bill added seven co-sponsors in the last week. Among them was Republican Senator Jim Oberweis from Green Grove who acquired an “A” rating from the NRA when he was the 2014 Republican nominee for U.S. Senate. We are looking at another turncoat who needs to be primaried ASAP.

The worst part of this bill isn’t the fact that it bans people under 21 years of age from owning any semi-auto firearm, it’s the fact that it’s retroactive and it would force current law-abiding owners to turn in their guns. Not doing so would render them felons.

The bill stipulates that any person under 21 years of age who owns a semi-auto firearm would have 90 days to turn in their weapons or face the possibility of incarceration.

Fox2 Now reports:

“Possession of assault-style weapons by anyone under 21 would be illegal under legislation that the Illinois House endorsed.

The plan sponsored by Democratic Rep. Michelle Mussman of Schaumburg would prohibit minors from buying or possessing high-capacity weapons, attachments, .50-caliber rifles andcartridges. They would have 90 days to transfer ownership.

The legislation was OK’d 64-51.

Critics decried the idea that the government would confiscate property. Mussman said authorities will not visit homes to pick up weapons. But a first offense for getting caught with prohibited firearms would be a misdemeanor offense.

The Illinois House has voted to ban “bump stock” accessories that transform rifles into assault-style weapons.

The legislation was the first of seven gun-restriction measures the House is considering Wednesday. The plan sponsored by Democratic Rep. Martin Moylan of Des Plaines was OK’d 83-31.

Lawmakers are responding to the Parkland, Florida massacre on Feb. 14 that killed 17 students and the fatal shooting of a Chicago police officer a day earlier.

Moylan sponsored similar legislation last fall because the gunman in the October Las Vegas mass shooting used a bump stock. It failed then because critics said it was too broad.”

Now it has come to this? The politicians in the Illinois legislature think they can stop crimes by prohibiting the ownership of firearms to law-abiding 18-21-year olds. Although at that same age you can go fight a war and drive a car. Meanwhile, the city of Chicago is a crime infested gun controlled town where any criminal can buy a semi-auto firearm for pennies on the dollar in the streets. Mayor Rahm Emanuel once said, “never waste a good crisis.” It looks like the Chicago politicians have wasted no time whatsoever in taking his advice.

Today 18-21-year-olds, tomorrow 21-25-year-olds, and next week the rest of us! We know the drill!

Chicago Gun Ban Law bills:

“On February 28th, the Illinois state House of Representatives will be hearing a number of gun control bills that will severely impact your Second Amendment rights. In addition to the egregious dealer licensing bill, Senate Bill 1657, there will also be a gun control package that the state House Judiciary Committee rushed through on February 27th without considering the effects of such legislation. Please contact your state Representative and Senator and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 1657 and House Bills 1465, 1467, 1468, and 1469. Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative and Senator.

Senate Bill 1657 would create onerous mandatory regulations, fees potentially in the thousands of dollars and excessive amounts of red tape that would almost assuredly force the closure of many firearm dealers, and prevent prospective owners from opening new ones. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) already licenses and closely monitors all federally licensed firearm dealers (FFLs) and strictly enforces any violation of federal law.

House Bill 1465, as amended by Representative Michelle Mussman (D-56), would deny law-abiding young adults under the age of 21 their Second Amendment rights by prohibiting them from possessing or purchasing commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, standard capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and .50 BMG caliber rifles. The bill would require adults under the age of 21 to dispose of such firearms within 90 days and to dispose of standard capacity magazines over ten rounds in capacity immediately. In addition, language in the bill would prohibit out-of-state visitors from being present in Illinois for longer than 24 hours with such firearms or standard capacity magazines.

House Bill 1467, sponsored by Representative Martin Moylan (D-55), would ban “bump stocks” and “trigger cranks.” The broad and vague language could be interpreted to ban components used on competition grade firearms. It would ban various antique and historical reproduction firearms such as Gatling guns, which are owned by collectors and historical reenactors. It would require owners of “bump stocks” and “trigger cranks” to dispose of them within 90 days.

House Bill 1468, sponsored by Representative Jonathan Carroll (D-57), would require a 72 hour waiting period for certain commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and .50 BMG caliber rifles. Current Illinois law requires a 72 hour waiting period for handguns and a 24 hour waiting period for long guns. The arbitrary distinction in this bill will cause confusion among firearm sellers about which long guns require a 72 hour waiting period. In addition, it would also ban the sale of these firearms to non-residents.

House Bill 1469, sponsored by Representative Daniel Burke (D-1), would ban standard capacity ammunition magazines over 10 rounds in capacity and body armor. The vast majority of handguns have standard capacity magazines holding more than 10 rounds. These magazines would have to be disposed of within 90 days.”

Baltimore Mayor Paid to Send 60 Buses of Kids to Anti-Gun March… Laura Ingraham Destroyed Her

Kirsters Baish| Conservative Fox News host Laura Ingraham really let Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh have it after she decided to send 60 buses of students to an anti-gun protest in Washington D.C. There was free food and apparel all on the taxpayer’s dollar, even though the school system in D.C. is a total wreck.

The Fox News host showed the graphic with the statistics below all while letting Pugh hear it:

What really strikes rationally thinking Americans is the fact that this school district has a $130 budget deficit and cannot pay to heat and cool their classrooms, but they are able to find the money to send 60 buses of students to anti-gun protests with the promises of free food and clothing, all while indoctrinating them into believing that guns are bad.

When will the madness end?

Ingraham stated:



Pugh should probably think twice next time before using her position to take advantage of students for political gain. This story is a gleaming example of the way that liberals operate. They will use the weak and vulnerable in order to make their way to the top. They literally don’t care who they step on getting there. The leftists of America have really outdone themselves this time with their push for gun control. They have taken a tragic school shooting, and turned it into a political tool in order to push their sick agenda. They are willing to use grieving students to make their point. Will they stop at nothing?


Confiscation Is Here: State Congress Orders Once Legal Owners to Turn in Guns

The left said this would never happen.  Confiscation was not what they were after.  We all knew it was a lie and now it’s going to be a reality for some gun owners.  When they came for the 18-20 year old’s right did you speak up, even though you were not one of them?
Conservative Tribune Reports: It happens every time there’s talk of gun control laws: The left predictably scoffs at gun owners, calling them paranoid for not trusting the state.

“Nobody wants to confiscate your guns,” liberals assure the rest of America. “Stop exaggerating.”

Flash forward to Thursday. Lawmakers in Democrat-controlled Illinois have passed a bill to — you guessed it — confiscate currently legal firearms from gun owners. So much for being paranoid.

BREAKING: DOJ Releasing ‘Smoking Gun’ Docs Obama And Holder Had Hidden – They Found It All!

Barack Obama could easily be the most corrupt president of modern times, but do not try to tell him or his millions of adoring followers that. Since Obama left office, he has been busy traipsing around the world bashing President Trump and telling throngs of his rabid supporters how he is the most loved, transparent, and scandal-free president of our time. Well, Obama may want to keep quiet about being transparent and scandal-free considering what the Department of Justice has found on him and his crooked buddy, Eric Holder that they tried to keep hidden from the American people for years.

The reason that the left has been in absolute hysterics since Donald Trump won the election is not only based on irrational hatred and childish antics but the fact that Hillary Clinton was supposed to make sure that all the horrible crimes committed under Obama’s watch stayed hidden. However, that plan did not work out as intended and Trump and the DOJ are busy revealing the corruption that took place in the Obama administration.

One of the biggest scandals that occurred during Obama’s terrible presidency was the detestable Fast and Furious Operation that the Obama administration tried to cover up. For years, that entire scandal has been shrouded in mystery as the American people have wondered what the truth behind this gun running operation was, and now we may finally have some answers.

The Department of Justice announced this past Wednesday, that they were in possession of additional documents concerning Fast and Furious and that they were being released to the House Oversight Committee.

Here is more from Townhall:

“The Department of Justice announced Wednesday additional documents related to the Operation Fast and Furious scandal during the Obama administration will be released to the House Oversight Committee. The documents were previously withheld by Attorney General Eric Holder, who was voted in civil and criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to turn them over. President Obama invoked executive privilege in June 2012 to prevent their release just hours before the contempt vote was held.

“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law. This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions released in a statement.

The Department stated the document release is part of “the conditional settlement agreement, filed in federal court in Washington D.C.” and  “would end six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce documents requested by the Committee.”

During an interview with Fox and Friends Tuesday, the brother of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry called on the Trump administration to reopen the investigation into the operation and to release previously withheld documents. 

“We need to find out the truth, exactly what happened, how it happened, why it happened. We need Mr. Trump, President Trump, to unseal the documents, reverse executive privilege so that we know what happened, and that we can hold the people accountable that are responsible,” Kent Terry said.

Terry was murdered by Mexican cartel rip crew members in December 2010. They were carrying guns illegally trafficked by ATF to Mexico through the Fast and Furious program.

Operation Fast and Furious was a secret ATF program, overseen heavily at the highest levels at the Department of Justice, which took place between September 2009 and December 2010. ATF agents repeatedly and knowingly allowed individuals working for Mexican cartels to traffic thousands of AK-47s, .50 caliber rifles and handguns into Mexico.”

Over the last several weeks, there has been chatter about Eric Holder running for president, but with these new documents, it could put a damper on his plans, right?

At any rate, the whole purpose for Hillary Clinton to win the election in 2016 was to keep these horrible crimes buried from the public, but now that Trump is in office they are all being exposed which makes the far-left very uncomfortable. The only way that they can ensure that these crimes will stay hidden from the American people is by running a Democratic candidate who could beat Trump and then delete this all forever.

That is why the 2018 midterm elections are so important. Everyone one of us needs to get out there and vote to make sure that conservatives stay in office so that Trump can continue to drain the swamp. It will take years to do, but we are on the right track, and these new revelations into Fast and Furious prove just that.

WOW! VA Lawmaker’s MEGA Viral Speech On Gun Control Causes Dems To Run Out Of Room – WATCH

Every once in a great while, one person stands up and says what an entire room full of people were thinking. Maybe no one had said it before because they didn’t have the guts, or just because they couldn’t figure out how to put it into words. But when someone really hits the nail on the head and drives home what we’re all thinking, it’s a truly joyful feeling.

That was the case when a Republican Representative to the Virginia state legislator took the microphone and spoke to his colleagues about gun control. Instead of hammering the same issues over again, he took a step back and talked about why the debate has raged on for so long.

According to Daily Wire, Representative Freitas reminded Congress of a few things, not the least of which is that while Democrats keep pointing the finger at Republicans about the injustices of the world, ours isn’t the party that supported many of the atrocities that have taken place in this country:

“All eyes are suddenly fixed on Nick Freitas, a Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates, now that he’s ticked off a lot of Democrats with his powerful speech on guns that quickly went viral, raking in over 12 million Facebook views since Friday.

The powerful and aggressive speech, which touched on inconvenient truths about the Democrat Party’s history, even triggered some Democrats to walk off the House floor.

Freitas delivered his remarks on Friday as a response to the very heated gun control debate.

‘For several days now, some Democrats in the Virginia House of Delegates have made public speeches comparing those of us who take our oath to the Constitution seriously, to include the 2nd Amendment, to Nazis and segregationists,’ wrote the delegate on Facebook captioning his speech, which he dubbed as his ‘response’ to such attacks.

The Republican first debunked the leftist notion that deterring so-called ‘gun violence’ means further infringing on Second Amendment rights. Digging deeper than gun control measures that he noted have proven ineffective in areas like Chicago and Washington, D.C., he said Americans should be looking at why so many shootings happen in ‘gun-free zones.’ And he called attention to the high likelihood that killers come from a broken home, which he connected to the growing welfare state and the abortion industry, and how hardening schools could be a practical, proactive step.

Addressing the Left’s dirty tactics of impugning Republicans’ moral character to push their gun control agenda, Freitas listed off some hard truths about the history of the Democratic Party, which ruffled some feathers.

‘It’s really difficult to have an open and honest debate about this […] because members of this body are comparing members of [the Republican] side of the aisle to Nazis,’ he said, adding that it was particularly offensive that GOP members were also compared to ‘segregationists.’

Freitas unleashed: ‘It was not our party that supported slavery, that fought women’s suffrage, that rounded up tens of thousands of Asian Americans and put them in concentrations camps, that supported Jim Crow, that supported segregation, or supported mass resistance — that wasn’t our party, that was the Democrat Party,’ he said.

‘I’d be really appreciative that every time you want to make a powerful point, you don’t project the sins, the atrocities, and the injustices the Democratic Party perpetrated on others onto us,’ slammed the Republican.

He also noted the lame talking point that Republicans representatives are ‘paid off’ by the National Rifle Association (NRA). ‘Why don’t you look at how much Planned Parenthood pays compared ot the NRA?’ he said.

A true conversation, he said, “starts with a certain degree of mutual respect.”

Democrats were ticked off by the Republican’s remarks. It was apparently the acknowledgment of the disturbing history of the Democratic Party that made them so uneasy. So they cried racism. As reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Delegate Lamont Bagby said he viewed Freitas’ remarks as racial ‘dog-whistling.’

‘We realize that we live in a ugly political moment. So while we were offended, we were not surprised,’ said Bagby. ‘It should embarrass every member of this body that we have allowed such rhetoric to enter these chambers. Bringing up a very painful past to make a political point is disgusting and poisonous.’

Remember: it’s fine to suggest Republicans are choosing NRA money over saving children’s lives, or branding them as Nazis and segregationists for disagreeing with Democratic talking points, but it is unacceptable — a racial dog-whistle actually — to bring up historical truths about the Party of Slavery.

This is why we can’t have a conversation.”

If ever there was a clearer representation of how conservatives view the gun debate, it’s certainly not being heard by most of America.

For the most part, Second Amendment supporters are left to listen while we’re called names and blamed for all the evils of the world. There are two really big problems with that; first off, for the most part, the Constitution has been doing a great job and isn’t to blame for these problems.

Secondly, even if everything that the left says about gun lovers is true, their tactics would be completely ineffectual at fixing the problem. Few people respond well to finger pointing and name calling, least of which those who are being threatened with their rights being taken away.

If the left wants change, they’re going to have to change their methods first, and probably listen to Freitas, he has quite a few excellent points.
