As the summer of 2020 dawned, left-wing radical groups began rioting and taking over parts of America’s cities. While this specific form of left-wing violence is new, left-wing violence itself is far from new in the United States. Indeed, one of the most hidden and concealed parts of recent American history is the extensive left-wing violence that began in the late 1960s and continued into the 1980s.

A federal lawsuit filed recently in Massachusetts reflects a growing frustration among gun owners as far away as the Pacific Northwest, where law enforcement agencies have “suspended” the application process for concealed pistol licenses.

The Massachusetts lawsuit was filed by the Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) on behalf of Thayer Eastman against the City of Lowell for “failure to process firearms licenses in a timely fashion.” The case also has similarities to a federal complaint filed days ago in Illinois by the Second Amendment Foundation and Illinois State Rifle Association.

This February, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reached the halfway mark of an unprecedented Supreme Court term, staring down what would be a momentous spring.

Behind closed doors, the justices had already cast preliminary votes on disputes concerning immigration, LGBTQ rights and the Second Amendment and they had voted to add even more blockbuster cases to an already bursting docket on issues related to abortion, Obamacare and President Donald Trump's tax returns.

Unbeknownst to the public, however, Ginsburg was battling another front. On the cusp of her 87th birthday, routine health scans in February revealed a recurrence of cancer with new lesions on her liver.

After a third review failed to uncover enough evidence to charge the officer who fatally shot Black 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, some prosecutors and civil rights leaders agree it’s time to focus on changing the laws that shield police.

Since the dismantlement of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense in 1982, no other organization composed of Black men and women has disrupted America’s white comfort. Until the NFAC (Not ****ing Around Coalition) led by the 2016 independent presidential candidate, John Fitzgerald Johnson, known as Grandmaster Jay, took formation.
 

VA: F.C. Council Gives Preliminary OK to Gun Ban on City Property

The Falls Church City Council Monday voted unanimously to advance a new gun control ordinance that bans the carrying of weapons on City-owned or operated properties despite a heavy outpouring of written citizen comments opposing the step.

Legislation passed by the Democratic-controlled Richmond state legislature earlier this year and signed into law by Gov. Ralph Northam allowed local jurisdictions for the first time in over 30 years to fashion their own restrictions on guns, and Falls Church has followed Alexandria and Arlington to push for the same restrictions that the City has lobbied for over decades.

While Missouri is home to the Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground Law, nothing of the sort exists on the federal level. In order to protect Second Amendment rights of Americans across the country, I am a proud cosponsor of fellow Missourian Congressman Jason Smith's bill, the American Family and Private Property Defense Act. This legislation would prevent an American citizen from being prosecuted for the use of force against an intruder as long as that force was used to protect themselves, another individual or private property. I am hopeful we will be able to get this bill passed to ensure Second Amendment rights nationwide are safeguarded.

The governor said the Strong Ohio 17-Point Plan focused on protecting Ohioans and keeping Ohioans safe.

The bill gives private gun sellers a way to do background checks and makes sure police have more detailed, up-to-date information in their systems.

It also takes guns away from people suffering from mental illness and addiction, while also getting them help.

The bill hasn’t had a hearing since December. Governor DeWine said that’s disappointing.

La Mesa on Saturday prepared for a large social-justice protest, setting up a perimeter around the Civic Center that bars weapons as well as “any other item generally considered an ‘implement of riot.'”

Last Saturday, police with the help of 37 sheriff’s deputies saw only 20 protesters at an event that brought out perhaps five times as many “defenders,” some with hunting knives and at least one machete.

While some in the Hispanic community in the US have said they purchased firearms in recent months, there are still generally mixed feelings about gun ownership and gun control.

About 30% of Americans said they own a gun, according to a 2017 survey from the Pew Research Center. About 36% of White and 24% of Black adults said they own a gun, the survey found, compared to 15% Latinos.

And not everyone in the Hispanic community is a gun enthusiast — some support stricter or new gun control laws.

Wake up America! Do you get it yet? Do you understand what the gun ban proponents are trying to do?

They want to ban your guns and abolish police. WHY? Because then we can't defend ourselves, our families, our community and our nation against the enemies of Freedom.

Who are these enemies?

Anyone who wants to ban guns and the right of law-abiding people to own and possess guns for any lawful purpose, is THE ENEMY.

"They're sleeping with Glocks in their hands," he said. "You go by there, they're laying on the ground asleep with a Glock in their hand., AR-15 on their shoulder, bulletproof vest. I'm sorry. Why is that needed?"

Richmond Police said over the past 30 days, they've responded to nearly 150 calls for service at the Lee statue.

That's partly the reason why they're making their rounds, telling those who set up camp to move along.

Meanwhile, some Republicans members of Congress took to Twitter to share their objection to the spending package.

“Today I voted NO on H.R. 7617, the House Democrat’s second partisan spending bill,” wrote Fred Keller (R-Pa.)

Keller went on to write that the spending package underfunds the military and police, pushes the Green New Deal, obstructs Second Amendment protections, expands federal government, and puts border security at risk.

In the first part of this series, I wrote about the history of silencer criminalization, about how a simple safety device, relatively easy to make at home, was made into contraband. Contraband where mere possession can result in some of the heaviest criminal penalties in the federal sentencing guidelines.

Silencers are easier to make today, than at any previous time in history.

Daniel Perry turned onto Congress Avenue on the night of July 25 when he encountered a group of Black Lives Matter protesters, according to the release issued by the firm of Broden & Mickelsen. The statement said several people approached Perry's vehicle and started banging on it. The press release continues:
