Second Amendment

Let’s Call The Liberals’ Second Amendment Militia Bluff

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Everybody. Basically, if you aren’t nuts, incapacitated, a crook or as old as a leading Democrat candidate, you’re in the militia. And that’s good, because a republic requires participation. It’s not too much to ask citizens to take personal responsibility for their own country, and the ultimate responsibility is to defend it. That’s why the Second Amendment’s militia reference, taken seriously, means not stripping Americans of their ability to defend their freedom but enhancing it.  After all, for the security of a free state, it’s necessary that every healthy, law-abiding American citizen owns a real combat rifle and is ready to deploy on a moment’s notice to protect our people and our Constitution.

A Lesson For Democrats From Jimmy Dean

When Jimmy Dean sells sausage, he doesn’t show his customers how the sausage is made and what goes into it – there are no pictures on TV of pigs being herded into the packing plant, killed and ground-up. Fortunately for President Trump, today's Far Left Democrats are showing their customers not only how the sausage is made, but who in America is going to be killed, ground up and stuffed into the casing if a Democrat is elected president.

Is Kamala Harris Eligible To Be President?

The argument against Ted Cruz being a "natural born" citizen went something like this: To be a “natural born” citizen, one must be born within the territory of the United States, to two citizen parents. Applying the same historical and legal arguments used against Senator Cruz to Kamala Harris it appears she is not a “natural born” citizen, rather she is more like America’s most high profile and least grateful anchor baby.

Democrats In Debate Double Down On The Issue That Lost Them The 2016 Election

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
As New York's Cardinal Timothy Dolan said, the Democrats have “slammed the door” on Catholics, our Faith, our Church, and our traditions. Democrats are so beholden to Planned Parenthood, Far Left Hollywood celebrities and radical feminists that they are blind to the fact that their position on abortion alienates the country’s largest group of swing voters.

Sugarcoating Socialism

After Bernie’s opening it seemed like everyone in the Democratic debate, except Governor Hickenlooper, started with “I agree with Bernie” or some variation thereof. It seems that there is no problem, from income inequality, to the alleged climate crisis, to war, to unwanted pregnancy that socialism can’t cure.

Last Night’s Fauxahontas Show

Warren’s mini biography about growing up poor in Oklahoma, and “I will fight for you” was easily the strongest close. Author Saeed Jones may have summed up last night's debate best when he tweeted, “Elizabeth Warren’s ability to remain patient and thoughtful while sharing the stage with such a diverse array of ambitious losers is commendable.”

The Secret To A Trump Landslide

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
There’s no guarantee that just because the Democrats set themselves on fire on national TV Trump is going to walk away with an easy 2020 victory. The real secret to creating a Donald Trump landslide in 2020 is for conservatives to take the lead in nationalizing the 2019-2020 elections by BRANDING the Democrats using targeted direct marketing through new and alternative media, especially in battle ground states and key congressional districts.

Democrat Debate: The Largest Gathering Of Liberals Since Woodstock

The pre-debate panderfest has been a doozy with Democratic candidates for President rolling out taxpayer funded giveaway after giveaway, with Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders’ student loan forgiveness scheme being by far the most expensive, but not the kookiest.

Gun Grabbers Never Let A Tragedy Go To Waste

Virginia's Democrat Governor Ralph Northam is calling a special session of the legislature to consider a package of new gun control bills. The aftermath of any tragedy is when respect for constitutional liberty is at its weakest and political considerations are at their strongest. Go to https://www.vcdl.org/ to learn how you can contact your Virginia Delegate or Senator to help fight this latest Democrat gun grab.

Be A Rooftop Korean

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Ban "assault weapons"? We should insist non-felon adult, able-bodied citizens own them and become proficient with them because all that law and order you see around you can disappear in a heartbeat. I watched it happen up close and personal, in one of America’s biggest cities. And as the Rooftop Koreans recognized, groups of citizens with (preferably) semi-auto rifles with 30-rounds mag is the only thing that is going to keep a mob in check. It’s your duty to be prepared to defend our community. Your duty. Yes, being a citizen of a free country is sometimes hard. Too bad. Tighten up and be ready and able to pick up a weapon.

Trump’s Intersectional Weekend

While we don’t buy the idea that all of society is controlled by oppressive intersectional institutions, the Trump team has, from the beginning of his unlikely rise to the Oval Office, recognized that the key elements of a winning political coalition on the Right do intersect, and their nexus is constitutional liberty, especially as protected by the First and Second Amendments.

The Indispensable Rep. Louie Gohmert

All too often we must ask CHQ readers to call Congress to protest some anti-conservative action by the so-called leaders of the Republican Party. Today we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Rep. Louie Gohmert’s office (1-866-220-0044) to thank him for his steadfast conservative leadership and especially for his successful efforts to gain the release of Sgt. Derrick Miller. (Pictured above Mrs. Renee Miller, mother of Sgt. Derrick Miller and Rep. Louie Gohmert)

An Armed Citizenry Is A Free Citizenry, Which Is Why Liberals Want You Disarmed

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

An armed citizenry is a true backstop to tyranny, an obstacle to total control over society by a small elite that seeks unbridled power. Will we ever have to use it? We hope not, but think of it as a fire extinguisher for fascism--better to have it lying around than not to have it when you need it. If the left wants chaos, an attempt to disarm us is the way to get it. We will never back down from our absolute and Creator-given right to defend our lives and freedom because disarmed, we stop being free citizens and become neutered serfs.

The Two Americas Of The #2A

The Democrat Party’s radical attempts to infringe upon the liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment is rapidly creating two systems of gun ownership; one in states where the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment is honored and one where state governments work to undermine it, if not repeal it.

Eight House Republicans Join Democrat Gun Grab

HR 8 isn’t a crime prevention bill, it is part of the Democrats’ long-term plan to disarm the American citizenry to make us more pliable victims for the socialist utopia they plan to impose upon us. The next stop for HR 8 is the US Senate, we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) urge them to vote NO on HR 8.

Democrats Rush To Criminalize Gun Ownership

Our friends at Gun Owners of America recently sent out an alert about HR 8, the House Democrats’ first gun bill of the 116th Congress, saying, “Nancy Pelosi and her anti-gun team are either profoundly stupid or genuinely evil,” and after reading the anti-Second Amendment legislation Democrats are rushing through Congress, we’re going with genuinely evil.

Ban On Bump Stocks To Begin March 26

According to the notice in the Federal Register, the Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the ATF to clarify that bump-stock-type devices - meaning “bump fire” stocks, slide-fire devices, etc. - are “machineguns” as defined by the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968. Gun owners have responded by filing a federal lawsuit in the Western District of Michigan.

Rubio Leads The Gun Grabbers

Red Flag laws sound reasonable, as gun confiscation laws often do, but here’s how it worked in Maryland. Answering a 5:00 a.m. knock on his door, Gary J. Willis, a 61-year-old resident of Maryland, was shot and killed by police when they were attempting to confiscate his firearms under the state’s “Red Flag” law.

House Republicans First Mistake – Playing On The Democrats’ Field

The House Republicans first day in the minority got off to an inauspicious start via Rep. Liz Cheney’s nomination of Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House. Our recommendation is that Rep. Liz Cheney fire whoever wrote the McCarthy nomination speech for her because there was certainly nothing in what she said yesterday that would drive any news cycle.

Democrat House Poised To Attack Gun Rights

Virtually all Democrat leadership positions are likely to be filled by long-time anti-gun zealots, such as Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi. Similarly, key committees will surely be chaired by extremists with long histories of supporting any and all legislation designed to diminish the rights of law-abiding gun owners.
