Second Amendment

In Memoriam: H.L. “Bill” Richardson, Founder of Gun Owners of America

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
My old friend and client, California state Senator H. L. “Bill” Richardson, a 22-year veteran of the California State Senate and founder of Gun Owners of America and Gun Owners of California, went home to be with the Lord on January 13, 2020. I raised $50,000 for Bill’s first campaign for the California state Senate, more importantly, I found Bill Richardson to live up to his billing as a true conservative.

Peaceful 2A Lobby Day And Rally In Richmond Disappoints Democrats

While the establishment news media played-up claims of “credible” intelligence that “extremist groups” and "white nationalists" planned violence at Monday's Virginia 2A Lobby Day and Rally, the participants told a diferent story. Micheal Mumford, of Richmond (pictured below), attended Monday's peaceful 2A Rally at the Virginia state capitol. and said, “It’s important to let everyone know we’re not a monolith.”

January 20 2A Lobby Day: Join Virginians In Desperate Fight To Save Second Amendment Rights

Virginia gunowners are in a desperate fight to keep their property and to preserve the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. One of the best ways you can help in this fight – even if you do not live in Virginia – is to participate in the Virginia Citizens Defense League-sponsored lobby day at the Virginia State Capitol on January 20, 2020, please read on for details on the day's events.

Virginia Readies For A Major Confrontation, With Itself

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Divisions among Virginians are not only over history, heroes and guns, they are also moral and religious. Unlike the seven states of the Deep South, Virginia did not vote to secede and leave the Union until President Lincoln issued his call to arms to put down the rebellion after the Confederates fired on Fort Sumter. Virginia seceded from the Union as the colony of Virginia had seceded from Great Britain. Today, it appears a new secession is underway. Virginians are separating from each other over issues as deep and divisive — such as who can take innocent life and when — as those that divided us in 1861. As are the rest of their countrymen in this time of Trump.

Second Amendment Sanctuary Cities For The Win

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Democrats have finally found a kind of sanctuary city they won’t goo goo over – one that protects the constitutional rights of American citizens instead of one that undermines and breaks the duly-enacted laws passed by the American people’s representatives for the benefit of foreigners who shouldn’t be here in the first place. This kind of civil disobedience is absolutely justified in the face of unconstitutional threats. The liberals think the Constitution is some sort of cafeteria, where they get to pick and chose the rights they will enforce – usually rights that aren’t even in the Constitution in the first place. But this only works if American citizens go along with it, and they are not going to.

Bloomberg Is No ‘Moderate’ On Abortion, Religious Liberty And Guns

We urge our conservative friends to keep an eye open for Bloomberg appearances, especially in the early Democrat primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina and to make a point of reminding voters that on guns, religious liberty and abortion Michael Bloomberg is not a “moderate” but an existential threat to constitutional liberty.

Harriet: A Great Pro-Christian Pro-Gun Movie

If the central message of the film Harriet is Harriet Tubman’s faith and reliance on God to inspire and sustain her fight for freedom, then the visual subtext of the movie is that very often the Lord’s chosen instrument to preserve her life and secure the freedom of her charges was one very large gun.

Florida Conservatives Fight For Second Amendment

Fortunately for Floridians they have a principled limited government constitutional conservative Attorney General, Ashley Moody, to defend their right to keep and bear arms, as protected by the Constitution of the United States.

It’s Conservatives Against Soros And Hollywood In Today’s Virginia Election

Virginia is only 4 seats away from becoming the next New York. We urge every CHQ reader who is eligible to vote in Virginia to go to their polling place and vote today, Tuesday, November 5th. As Morton Blackwell said, everything is on the line for those of us who are conservative in Virginia.

Yesli Vega: This Conservative Hispanic Candidate is Poised to Make a Difference

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We conservatives have a very attractive candidate as unique as a “purple cow” running for district supervisor in Prince William County, Virginia and she needs your help.  Yesli Vega is the conservative Republican nominee running for Supervisor in the Coles District, and she is a staunch movement conservative that we can all be proud of and get behind.

For Virginia Conservatives It’s All On The Line Tomorrow

Everything is on the line in the Nov. 5th election for those of us who are conservative in Virginia. If the Left gets control of the House of Delegates and the state Senate, they're going to make fundamental changes that are intended to turn Virginia into California.  And the Right to Life and the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment are at the top of their plans to Californicate the Old Dominion.

Gun Grabbers Misleading Us

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

The so-called assault weapons ban and mandatory buyback plan that 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke and others call for, will do little or nothing to bring down homicides. More homicides could be prevented by advocating for knife control, hammer control and feet and fist control. Gun controllers' belief that "easy" gun availability is our problem ignores U.S. history. Guns were far more readily available yesteryear. One could mail order a gun from Sears or walk into a hardware store or a pawnshop to make a purchase. With truly easy gun availability throughout our history, there was nowhere near the mayhem and mass murder that we see today.

Beto was honest about taking guns, and that's why Joe Biden's gun plan is dead on arrival

Editors, Washington Examiner

No sane gun owner will want his or her name on a gun registry after listening to this year's Democratic candidates on the trail. It's not just that Democrats now openly talk of packing the Supreme Court and abolishing the Second Amendment, by hook or by crook. It's also that specific Democrats, Beto O'Rourke especially, have clarified and confirmed the real reason for creating such registries. Gun owners are not paranoid for taking Democrats' promises literally on this topic. Democrats have engaged this issue in bad faith for far too long to be able to win gun owners' trust now. Biden has a plan, but Beto already showed why it won't work.

Conservative Leaders Tell Congress No Red Flag Laws

The Conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project representing over 100 organizations from all elements of the conservative movement have issued a statement expressing their opposition to the enactment of so-called Red Flag laws at the state or federal level. These laws trample on the constitutional rights of Americans. And they do nothing to prevent mass shootings.

New York Times Front Page Promotes Fake News And Lies About Guns

Smart policy decisions are rarely made by a population steeped in misinformation and fear, but through fake news and outright lies that is exactly the atmosphere The New York Times and other Far Left media outlets seek to create in order to disarm law abiding Americans.

Conservatives Ready To Stay Home If Trump Joins Dems On Guns?

We don’t think the President’s advisors necessarily understand what the gun debate is all about from the conservative side. Certainly, part of it is the details of the policy, but the more important part is the breach of trust that abandoning his promise to defend the Second Amendment would entail.

The Plague Of Democrats Smearing Their Way To Power

The plague of smears against Justice Brett Kavanaugh can be understood as the first step in the Left’s post-Ginsberg strategy: Unleash this plague to intimidate Justice Kavanaugh and delegitimize any decision the Supreme Court renders in its aftermath, perhaps even creating a constitutional crisis if Democrat-controlled states refuse to abide by the Court’s decisions on the Second Amendment or abortion.

House Democrats to Take up Gun Confiscation Bills Today

We know the House Democrats can pass virtually any gun control measure they want. The real challenge is to make sure that House Republicans don’t join them. Because if they do, then that will cause Senate Republicans to defect in large numbers and gun control will pass both chambers of Congress, putting constitutional liberty in dire jeopardy.

Independent Gun Dealers Are Cornerstones Of Liberty

In recognition of the position of independent gun stores as the cornerstone of liberty, I think I’ll make an excursion through the local gun stores and buy myself another gun, not because I need one, but simply because I want to send the signal to Walmart, Dick’s, Bank of America and Citibank that this is still a relatively free country and I intend to keep it that way.

The Part Of The Second Amendment No One Reads

To Julian Castro, and those few misguided gun owners who might be tempted to agree with him, I am forced to point out that the Second Amendment, and the rights it protects, have nothing to do with hunting. We urge CHQ readers and friends to share this article widely and to call their Representative and Senators through the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) and to let President Trump know via the White House comment line (1-202-456-1111) that the Second Amendment is not negotiable.
