Second-Amendment Sanctuaries Defend Civil Rights Across the US


SlowFacts

I’m slow, but I eventually put the pieces together. The bad news is that more state governments are infringing on our rights. The good news is that local governments stood up to protect us. We are seeing a large and growing movement across the country where local governments stand up to protect our right of self-defense. We have well established second-amendment sanctuary counties in Colorado, Illinois, New Mexico, and Washington. We’re seeing a new bloom of them in other states. The growth is so rapid, that I know the graphic is out of date.

Second Amendment Sanctuaries

The second-amendment sanctuary movement started years ago. I remember when counties in Colorado said they would not enforce the recently passed magazine capacity limits. There were many downstate counties in Illinois who told the Chicago-controlled legislature that they would ‘keep their guns, thank you’. Counties in New York passed second-amendment sanctuary bills after…

    It is merely a question of time before the political tides turn and the gun grabbers get total control of DC again. When this time comes the gun grabbers will not attack the Second Amendment directly as that is an almost impossible path and they would lose. No, they will attack the amendment with ever increasingly punitive regulations and restrictions upon what can be called ‘legally owned’ firearms. It is the proverbial death by a thousand cuts.

    This will result in elevating the frustration of the deplorables/conservative nation enough to cause confrontations with our opposites such as Antifa and the like. As we have seen, the left will use red flag laws to intimidate and discriminate our members in an effort to force us to either go completely underground or to make a stand with great prejudice.

    Thing is that either option is fine with the left because regardless of which occurs once it has happened, they can label us as being criminal subversives. Then the wrath of the deep state can be applied with the various jack booted assault type law enforcement agencies commencing with wholesale confiscation.

    At present, they do not need to disarm us. They need to isolate us from being considered ‘mainstream’ and instead we become extremists and outlaws. Once we are the equivalent of criminals, we lose our rights.

    We all say come and take it but the true implications of such a statement are the same now as it was in 1776. It is tantamount to a declaration of war; nothing less. This is because the first time we act as a group to physically resist an action of our government WE ARE AT WAR.

    All of these second amendment sanctuaries are great but every place that is not a part of that green zone is at risk and in the tinderbox of this issue. We cannot surrender those areas outside the green to the gun grabbers and think that we still are protecting our second amendment rights. If citizens in gun grabber areas are being disarmed we are still seeing the gradual process of the elimination of the second amendment going forth.

    Anyone that looks upon the political scene today and does not see the serious fracture in our society is either blind or willfully ignorant. This divide will eventually need to be resolved one way or another and I doubt at the moment the gun grabbing socialists are going to back down anytime soon. Keep this in mind as you observe this ongoing debate regarding gun control.
