Rapper Who Performed at Gun Control March Arrested Last Year on Concealed Handgun Charge

Rapper Vic Mensa performed for Saturday’s student march for gun control, coined the March for Our Lives, although he was arrested last year on a concealed handgun charge.

Mensa was arrested in Beverly Hills after being found with a concealed handgun without a California concealed carry license.

On March 7, 2017, TMZ reported, “[Mensa] was stopped in Beverly Hills … for running a stop sign and having tinted windows … according to law enforcement sources. We’re told he informed cops he had a gun in his car and showed them his concealed carry permit. The problem is … cops say the permit is for another state.”

Mensa faced “felony” charges for the incident but was able to plead down to “two years probation.”

In addition to performing Saturday, Mensa called out another rapper, Killer Mike, for criticizing march participants who blindly follow the “progressive movement.” Killer Mike warned that gun control ultimately means blacks lose the guns with which they protect their freedom. Mensa responded by challenging him to a debate:

Killer Mike responded by saying, “We got the same publicist and u have my phone number. I ain’t dodge’n u”:

Alec Baldwin: Time to Rethink Second Amendment

ctor Alec Baldwin entered the gun control push on March 5 by tweeting his criticism of the number of guns Americans can purchase and stressing his belief that it is time to rethink the Second Amendment.

His tweet comes on the heels of a new NRATV ad calling out “every Hollywood phony” and members of the “lying media.”

The ad features NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch saying, “We’ve had enough of the lies, the sanctimony, the arrogance, the hatred, the pettiness, the fake news. We are done with your agenda to undermine voters’ will and individual liberty in America.”

She continues, “So to every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents, to the politicians who would rather watch America burn than lose one ounce of their personal power … your time is running out.”

Baldwin used the NRA ad as a springboard from which to complain about the number of guns Americans can legally purchase and to criticize the Second Amendment in general.

He tweeted:

The Second Amendment says nothing about how many guns a citizen can purchase because the goal of the Second Amendment was to restrict governments, rather than individuals. As with all amendments in the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment is in place to restrain tyranny via regulation and legislation, not to limit the people’s freedom.

Looked at another way, does the First Amendment only protect an American’s right to speak a certain number of words freely? Are Americans limited to an arbitrary standard of 30 or 40 words of free speech, or it is okay for Alec Baldwin to speak freely using 49 words in a tweet?

Americans enjoy a rich heritage of liberty characterized by all the freedoms protected by the Bill of Rights. By singling out Second Amendment rights for restrictions, Baldwin demonstrates anew the left’s tendency to treat the private gun ownership as a second-class right.

Roku Won’t Drop NRATV: ‘We Do Not Curate or Censor Based on Viewpoint’

Popular streaming device manufacturer Roku has refused to censor NRATV, following mob pressure and protests from Moms Demand Action.

“NRATV promotes dangerous conspiracy theories, racially charged rhetoric, and violent demonization of the NRA’s political opponents,” claimed pressure group Moms Demand Action on Twitter, Saturday. “Tell Apple, Google, Roku and Amazon to #DumpNRATV.”

In response, Roku refused to censor NRATV’s content, noting that they hadn’t broken any of Roku’s rules.

“We share deep sadness about the recent tragedy that occurred in Florida. Our streaming platform allows our customers to choose from thousands of entertainment, news and special interest channels, representing a wide range of topics and viewpoints,” Roku declared. “Customers choose and control which channels they download or watch, and parents can set a pin to prevent channels from being downloaded. While the vast majority of all streaming on our platform is mainstream entertainment, voices on all sides of an issue or cause are free to operate a channel. We do not curate or censor based on viewpoint.”

“We are not promoting or being paid to distribute NRA TV. We do not and have not ever had a commercial relationship with the NRA,” they continued. “Their channel is free to consumers with no ads. We welcome Moms Demand Action and other important groups to use our platform to share their messages too.”

Roku then added, “While open to many voices, we have policies that prohibit the publication of content that is unlawful, incites illegal activities or violates third-party rights, among other things. If we determine a channel violates these policies, it will be removed. To our knowledge, NRA TV is not currently in violation of these content policies.”

This week, FedEx also refused to sever their relationship with the NRA, expressing that it supports the “constitutional right of citizens to own firearms.”

Following their refusal to bend to mob pressure, pop-rock band Blink-182, and many others, called for a boycott of the company.

Over a dozen companies have severed their relationships with the NRA following pressure, including First National Bank of Omaha, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Symantec, Metlife, Delta Airlines, Best Western, United, Alamo Rent a Car, Avis, Allied Van Lines, Budget, Chubb Insurance, Hertz, North American Van Lines, Paramount Rx, SimpliSafe, and TrueCar.

Moms Demand Action and student-turned-media personality David Hogg are currently pressuring tech companies to censor the NRA on their platforms, while far-left filmmaker Michael Moore claimed the NRA is as bad as ISIS.

In response to the companies that severed their relationships, the NRA branded the public relations stunts “a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.”

“In time, these brands will be replaced by others who recognize that patriotism and determined commitment to Constitutional freedoms are characteristics of a marketplace they very much want to serve,” the NRA proclaimed in a statement to Breitbart News. “Let it be absolutely clear. The loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world.”

Former Air Marshal: Arming Pilots Post-9/11 Worked, So Will Arming Teachers

Proposals to arm teachers and other staffers to better secure schools against mass shooters are worthwhile, just as arming pilots was following 9/11, said Chad Robichaux on Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight in an interview with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Robichaux is a former Special Agent with the U.S. Federal Air Marshal Service (FAMS). His work with the FAMS included the development and implementation of the Federal Flight Deck Officer (FFDO) program — including training the first wave of armed pilots following 9/11 — after the Islamic terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, which screened, trained, and armed pilots.

Just as arming pilots following 9/11 has been successful in deterring hijackings and other terrorist operations, said Robichaux, so would arming teachers and school staffers be.

Armed personnel on site offer a quicker response time than law enforcement can typically provide to mass shooting scenarios, said Robichaux: “These shootings go down at these schools in an average of three minutes, and it takes up to eight minutes for law enforcement to respond, and that’s eight minutes too late.”

Left-wing resistance to defending school children via the arming of teachers and school staff resembles similar hostility toward the FFDO program’s arming of pilots, said Robichaux.

“There was a lot of pushback [to the FFDO],” said Robichaux. “People said, ‘You can’t trust these pilots with firearms.’ Well, you trust them flying your airplane. So now people are saying, ‘We can’t trust teachers with firearms.’ We trust them with our children.”

Proposals to arm teachers and school staffers “shouldn’t be written off as a ridiculous idea,” said Robichaux. “Some schools in Texas and Colorado are already doing this [with] teachers having concealed carry in their classrooms.”

Robichaux favorably recalled Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr.’s support for concealed carrying of firearms on the university’s campus.

The FFDO “extremely” screens and vets pilots, including 6-month intervals for retraining with firearms and scenarios. “We don’t arm every pilot. We wouldn’t arm every teacher, but the right ones,” said Robichaux.

Schools would cease being “soft targets” via the arming of teachers and school staffers, said Robichaux.

Knowledge of armed personnel on school campuses would dissuade prospective mass shooters from targeting said schools, said Robichaux: “Even if someone is willing to die for their cause, no one wants to be shot back at,” said Robichaux. “No one wants to get shot back at.”

Mansour described “gun-free zones” as magnets for those who wish to murder others en masse: “It just seems to make perfect sense. If you make someplace a ‘gun-free zone,’ that is automatically a target for people that want to do evil and start killing people. You’re basically announcing that we are not armed and taking away any element of surprise that a place might have if the shooter goes in.”

Robichaux is also a decorated United States Marine Corps’ Force Reconnaissance veteran as well as president and founder of the Mighty Oaks Foundation, an organization providing assistance to veterans. It describes itself as “committed to serving brokenhearted [warriors] by providing intensive peer-based discipleship through a series of programs, outpost meetings, and speaking events.”

Rap Star T.I.: ‘It’s Easy for Government to Enslave People when They Don’t Have the Right to Bear Arms’

Rapper-actor T.I. may have slightly more felonies than Grammy Awards, but the reality TV star says the only thing standing between free Americans and government enslavement is the Second Amendment.

Asked by TMZ what side he takes in the now-brewing debate about guns, in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting, T.I. says “It’s a tough one.”

“I think you should probably make it more difficult for people who aren’t mentally stable to have guns, and maybe there should be some,” T.I. — real name Clifford Harris — said, adding, “I just honestly feel like if you lose the right to bear arms as a citizen, then you know what I’m saying, it’s easy to enslave.”

“It’s easy for the government to enslave people when they don’t have the right to bear arms,” the three-time Grammy Award-winner said.

T.I. also said that most of the deadly shootings in recent years have been perpetrated by people who purchase guns legally.

“I think mental stabilization needs to be a big part . . . Just not being a felon isn’t enough. We see that, that isn’t working. People think that the felons that’s causing all the problems, but you know, it seems as though people who have been given a gun license, who bought guns legally… Those are the ones causing all the mass hysteria, so I think that our system’s broken.”

The 37-year-old rapper is certainly no NRA card-carrying conservative, he has referred to President Trump as a “fucking tangerine tanned muskrat scrotum skin, lacefront possum fur wig wearing, alternative fact, atomic dog diarrhea face ass man.”

But the veteran rapper does love his firearms, so much that he’s willing to face jail time for them. T.I. was arrested in 2007 and charged with illegally purchasing firearms as a convicted felon. The guns, T.I. said at the time, were meant to protect himself and his family after his best friend was killed in a shootout.

Owner Who Banned Muslims From Gun Range Now Running for Governor Gun Range Owner Who Banned Muslims Running for Governor

A conservative woman who banned Muslims from her gun range has announced plans to throw her hat int the political ring.

Jan Morgan, owner of the Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range in Hot Springs, announced on Dec. 31 that she will be running for governor of Arkansas.

Morgan will be challenging incumbent Asa Hutchinson in the Republican primary in 2018.

Hutchinson was elected in 2014.

Morgan has been very critical of Hutchinson, saying the governor “campaigns like a conservative Republican but governs like a liberal Democrat,” according to the Texarkana Gazette.

Prior to announcing a run for governor, Morgan made headlines in 2014 when she had a direct message for radical Islamic extremists, and banned Muslims from her firing range, as Fox News reported at the time.

“I refuse to train the next Islamic terrorist,” Morgan wrote on her site JanMorganMedia, explaining her decision.

Citing safety concerns, Morgan said that the religion of Islam represents and promotes a “theocracy, terrorist organization, not a religion.”

Naturally, the story drew major attention, including a lengthy (and reasonably fair) interview in The Washington Post.

According to The Arkansas Times, Morgan has been a stalwart for the Second Amendment and will likely make that a top issue for her campaign.

Morgan said she plans to hold an event toward the end of the month to speak with voters and discuss the issues they care deeply about.

If elected, Morgan would become the first female governor of Arkansas.

While Morgan would be an ardent advocate for several conservative issues, her candidacy would make her a lightning rod in national politics.

It’s unclear how Morgan will fare against Hutchinson, but one could certainly assume it’s going to be an interesting, and possibly raucous Republican primary.

Get ready for fireworks, Arkansas.

New Law Allows Police To Take Our Guns To ‘Save Lives’…But There’s More That Libs Don’t Want You To Know

We’ve been warned about it for years, and it’s finally happening – liberals are trying to take your guns.

Mind you, I used to think this was a bit of an exaggeration. The Left loves power, after all, and nothing gets people behind a politician like ‘fake outrage over mass shootings.’

I say ‘fake,’ of course, because real outrage would quickly figure out that gun control wouldn’t actually solve the problem.

Which brings me to today’s new law – one that allows the government to simply knock on your door and take your guns away without your knowledge.

Yes, I’m serious.

And the kicker? In order to get people behind this law, Democrats are lying about the number of mass shooting victims…by mixing them up with suicide deaths.

Breitbart reports:

[A new law] would legalize firearm confiscation orders, [allowing] a judge to issue an order for the confiscation of an American’s firearms without the firearm owner even being present for the process.

His or her first knowledge of the order would come when police knocked on their door to sweep the house for firearms.

[The law’s supporters] do not differentiate between Americans who die due to suicide versus those who die via gun crime, homicide. Gun crime only makes up one-third of gun deaths each year in America. Two-thirds of the deaths are suicides.

The suicide lie is not the only lie hidden within this bill.

There’s also the simple fact that the bill itself, just like every other gun control bill, wouldn’t actually work to stop the mass shootings that inspired them in the first place.

I would say that this level of dishonesty it is too low even for the Left, but it’s become commonplace whenever liberals want to take your guns. And everyone is falling for it – even traditionally conservative country music stars like Tim McGraw.

The orders are supported by Sandy Hook Promise, the gun control group to which Tim McGraw donated concert proceeds in July.

It’s one thing to deceive New Yorker-reading Berkeley elites who’ve never worked a real day in their life. It’s quite another to deceive the same country singer who brags about obeying his parents, serving his country, and saying, ‘yes, sir,’ and ‘yes, ma’am.’

Put simply, the Democrats are getting better at this.

And when it comes to opposing gun control laws that don’t actually work, we need to be better, too.
