Antifa terrorists brag about one jaw-dropping act of violence that has drivers up in arms

0

Democrats and their media allies have been fear-mongering about right-wing domestic terrorism.

But they ignore the much more frequent instances of far-left extremism.

And Antifa terrorists took credit for one shocking crime.

The corporate-controlled press and the Washington, D.C. establishment want people to believe that far-right violent extremists are on the rampage.

But that is simply not true.

They refuse to pay attention to the far-left terrorism taking place on a consistent basis.

For example, Antifa radicals have been allowed to operate in Portland with impunity.

During the 2020 riots, Antifa terrorists firebombed a federal courthouse on a nightly basis and attempted to set cops on fire.

Now Antifa is seemingly taking credit for an arson incident outside the home of Portland City Commissioner Rene Gonzalez, a moderate mayoral candidate.

A car belonging to Gonzalez’s parents was set on fire.

An Antifa blog called Rose City Counter-Info wrote that “[o]n the first new moon of 2024, some anarchists torched a car in front of portland city commissioner rene gonzalez’s house. This was accomplished with a fire starter, which can be found in the outdoors section of any big box store…Let this serve as a warning to the politicians and their capitalist cronies and a call to action to other anarchists. Solidarity means attack!”

This is not the first time that Portland Antifa has threatened politicians.

Mayor and Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler moved out of his apartment complex after Antifa radicals occupied the building’s lobby.

Gonzalez told reporters, “A neighbor called my wife … could see that there was a fire in the vehicle and went outside and observed it and we immediately called 911…Initial assessment from police is that they think it’s arson, and they believe it is targeted…This is a democracy, and this is absolutely no way to air disagreement with elected officials’ positions…I’m gonna be unbending in protecting the city of Portland. If you think that you can reach me by targeting my family or my household, you are dead wrong, and I’m going to see you with every inch of power that I have to assure justice comes to you.”

Antifa radicals have convinced themselves of their moral superiority, so they will justify any and all actions against their political opponents.

Meanwhile, the Democrats and their media allies pretend as though Antifa is simply a “myth.”

Myths do not set cars on fire and brag about it.

Legal experts are picking their jaws up from the floor after this head-scratching verdict

0

Crime has become a part of daily life for millions of Americans.

This is especially true for those living in Democrat controlled states and cities which have largely surrendered to criminals.

However legal experts were floored after this shocking verdict made national headlines.

San Francisco’s latest verdict demonstrates that criminals run the show

Few American cities suffer from crime quite like San Francisco, which has practically morphed into America’s crime capital.

But last April, San Francisco made headlines for a crime so heinous that even many on the left called for action.

In April of 2023, Donald Carmignani, who previously served as the fire commissioner for San Francisco, was allegedly beaten over the head with a metal pipe by a homeless man.

The suspect, Garret Doty, faced two counts of assault and one count of battery as a result.

However, last Friday, the courts found Doty not guilty on all charges, allowing him to go back onto the streets without any punishment for his brutal attack on Carmignani. 

Deputy Public Defender Kleigh Hathaway, who represented Doty in this case, claimed that Doty acted in self-defense, justifying his use of a metal pipe which left the former fire commissioner with 51 stitches, clinging to life.

In a statement, Hathaway said “From the beginning, it was clear to me that Mr. Doty was acting in self-defense against Mr. Carmignani, who not only had the audacity to attack Mr. Doty with bear spray and then threatened to stab and kill Mr. Doty, but also presented himself as unwilling to back down from a fight that he had started.”

Hathaway added, “Self-defense can be fierce because the brain goes into survival mode, and that fear response is sadly heightened for unhoused people, like Mr. Doty, who live in constant exposure.”

Carmignani however claims that Doty and his friends are part of a rogue criminal gang, who attack business owners in the area on a regular basis. 

Following his attack, Carmignani told the press that “As a native San Franciscan and lifelong Marina District resident, I firmly believe that the city needs to promote the safety of its law-abiding citizens over those who chose to do drugs and commit violent acts in our streets.”

He added, “I am hopeful that this unfortunate incident will lead to policy changes to better protect the interests of San Francisco residents and that my attackers will be fully prosecuted.”

Unfortunately, Carmignani’s attacker will walk free following last Friday’s verdict, devoid of any punishment for the damage he did to this former city official.

Carmignani’s attacker walks free as the city of San Francisco suffers from crippling crime

Following the brutal attack on Donald Carmignani last year, many legal experts believed this case could finally convince lawmakers to focus on crime within the city by the bay. 

Instead, his attacker walks free, and many fear that this case will set a precedent for other judges to side with violent homeless attackers. 

No further details have emerged about an appeals process for Carmignani, however it almost goes without saying that he and his family are devastated with this outcome.

Teen convicted after tearing the arm off of a grandmother in this deadly attack

0

Far-left run cities have become overrun by criminal activity in recent years due to mismanagement.

While politicians prefer soft-on-crime policies, the regular folks in the cities suffer, particularly the most vulnerable populations.

And a Louisiana teen was convicted in this deadly attack on a grandmother.

New Orleans is a city full of vibrant culture and rich heritage.

Unfortunately, it’s also extremely dangerous in places, particularly at night and away from the areas frequented by tourists.

The city is a tourist hotspot but it’s a dangerous place

According to neigborhoodscout.com, the city has a crime rate of 61 per one thousand residents.

That makes New Orleans have one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. 

The chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 16.

Crime has been on the increase lately and it’s been due to the lax prosecutions by George Soros-backed District Attorney Jason Williams.

Williams himself was the victim of a carjacking at gunpoint in October, along with his mother.

At the time, Williams’ office spokesperson said of the incident in an interview with local TV station Fox 8, “”DA Williams and his mother were unharmed, and both thank the [New Orleans Police Department] for their hard work tonight and every night responding to crime victims.”

But the city’s crime streak has claimed another victim and the person primarily responsible has just been convicted.

Back in 2022, a 73-year-old woman called Linda Frickey was killed when she was carjacked by a teenage boy and three teenage girls.

The girls later pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

An unbelievably vicious attack caught on camera

In a horrific attack, at the time of the incident, the young man beat the elderly woman to try and remove her from the vehicle.

He eventually shoved her out, but in doing so, her arm became tangled in the seatbelt and she was dragged along the pavement. 

The grandmother’s arm was eventually torn from her body.

A YouTube clip shows the teens surrounding the vehicle and jumping inside.

Neighbors recalled in horror the moment the crime occurred.

One neighbor told WWLTV, “I just started screaming and running because I just wanted to get this person from this car, and if I could do that I could help this person.”

But now, family members of the victim are finally getting some belated justice.

The teenage boy, John Honore, who was the leader of the attack, was sentenced to life in prison on Friday.

Frickey’s sister Jinnylynn Griffin told the New York Post, “He’s a little jerk, he’s a little punk, and he deserves to go where he is going. He is a demon, and God saw that demon that day, and that’s how Linda’s arm got severed. We put away the demons now. And the future demons, they better look out because the DA’s office is not playing anymore.”

In the end it appears that while a family and community will be forever scarred by the terrible events of two years ago, at least a vicious thug got what he deserved and will be off the streets.

Blue state residents are getting loud about the border crisis as cities crumble under the pressure

0

Democrat Governors and Mayors once gleefully declared their states and cities to be “sanctuary citizens” for illegal immigrants.

But it was only a matter of time before the border crisis blew up on open-border Democrats.Now blue state residents are getting loud about the border crisis as cities crumble under the pressure.

The blue state of Illinois is in turmoil due to Biden administration policies, and residents are speaking out. 

The city of Chicago is grappling with an overwhelming influx of migrants while its own homeless and impoverished citizens are left to fend for themselves. 

The situation has ignited fury among residents, accusing local leaders of neglecting the needs of their own people.

With over 300 migrants boarded onto warming buses and nearly 15,000 migrants in city shelters, Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications is struggling to address the impending dangerous drop in temperatures. 

The frustration is palpable, with hundreds more migrants awaiting placement in various locations, including Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

Cata Truss, a concerned resident, voiced the sentiments of many on “Fox & Friends,” demanding accountability from city officials. 

“I do have to wonder, are they going to provide those warming buses down on Canal Street, where the tents are located for the homeless, or down on Roosevelt, where tents are located for the homeless, or over on Division Street where tents are located for the homeless?”

The numbers tell a stark tale: since the initiation of data collection, almost 34,000 migrants have arrived in the city, with an expenditure exceeding $156 million on housing and care since October 2022. 

This financial strain in addition to the 6,139 recorded homeless residents in 2023.

Residents are criticizing Chicago’s resources allocation, highlighting a staggering projected deficit of $391 billion for Chicago Public Schools. 

Truss said to Fox, “What is needed is for us to stop the bleeding… at what point do we close the borders and help to fix whatever’s going wrong in these countries that have those people fleeing here in the first place?”

Fellow resident Sam Sanchez echoed Truss’s concerns in his Fox interview, emphasizing the neglect of American citizens who have long awaited work visas. 

“Resources that have been denied to communities that have been long forgotten for over 50 years. Now, the funds appear out of nowhere for newcomers and migrants.”

Sanchez predicted electoral repercussions, saying to Fox & Friends, “What the elected officials should realize [is] that some of these old migrants have been here for a long time, have children and grandchildren that are voting age. This is going to reflect on the next election, and I hope it does.”

The blame falls squarely on President Biden and the Democrat Party’s border policies. 

When Fox asked if Biden has failed the people of Chicago, Truss responded with a resounding “absolutely.” 

She also held Democratic Governor JB Pritzker and Mayor Brandon Johnson accountable, asserting, “The people are crying out and no one is listening, they are just not listening… we’re supporting these people and voting [for] these people and they don’t give a damn about us.”

Despite Mayor Johnson acknowledging the situation as “not sustainable” and pleading for significant federal assistance, Chicago residents remain unconvinced. 

The frustration is building, and as Sanchez aptly puts it, “This is going to reflect on the next election.” 

The battle for Chicago’s soul intensifies, and the forgotten Americans are demanding to be heard.

Massachusetts Democrats just made this jaw-dropping ask of private homeowners

0

Far-left politicians have zero consideration for how their policies impact regular people in their cities and states.

While their ideology has been detrimental they’ve managed to escape voters’ wrath, but there are signs that could be changing.

Now Massachusetts Democrats just made this jaw-dropping ask of private homeowners.

They’ve encouraged illegal immigration for decades, and now that they are getting what they’ve claimed to support, they’re scrambling to pick up the pieces.

That’s the lot of many far-left Democrat officials in deep blue cities and states, and it’s all because Joe Biden and his administration have never had any intention of securing and policing our nation’s southern border.

As millions of newcomers of dubious legality have crossed into the United States, hundreds of thousands have made their way to the Bay State.

Massachusetts may or may not technically be a “sanctuary state” because there is no law on the books explicitly stating that to be the case, but de facto, it is.

The far-left Center for Immigration Studies counts Massachusetts on their lists of sanctuary states because Massachusetts law does not authorize law enforcement to hold people solely on detainer requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) without another reason to keep them in custody.

Democrats for years both at the state and national levels, along with their sympathetic special interest groups, have all tacitly or overtly encouraged activity that is at odds with federal law.

Because of a state law, Massachusetts is forced to pay for shelter and housing for homeless families. 

Massachusetts has gone woke and gotten broke in an entirely different wa

Since the state’s housing system is already overwhelmed, Massachusetts now houses 1,400 families in 40 hotels in 28 cities at taxpayer expense — and free for the illegal aliens. 

According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, the average stay for these families is 14 months of free room and board.

The problem is reaching a breaking point and the state’s politicians want federal help – from U.S. Taxpayers who don’t support their radical policies – to bail them out.

But for law-abiding residents it gets even more concerning.

Governor Maura Healey (D) has declared a state of emergency as a predictable consequence of the “open door” policy.

Days after the emergency declaration, Lt. Gov. Kim Driscoll (D) went further, saying, “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family.”

That sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Elon Musk noted the problem on social media, saying, “They’ve run out of hotel rooms, are kicking kids out of school for illegal housing and now they want your homes too.”

Howie Carr: “It was decent if woke neighborhood, but now it’s a Bidenville”

Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr wrote in an op-ed, “Joe Biden et al. have turned what was a decent, if woke neighborhood, into a Bidenville. The illegals are up all night, driving their unregistered scooters everywhere. Needles litter the gutters. The illegals are harassing young American girls and ‘verbally abusing’ adults.”

But that isn’t stopping the state from reaching out to interest groups to pressure residents into taking illegal immigrants into their homes.

A group called Immigrant Support Alliance is pushing homeowners to bring illegal immigrants into their homes to act as a “host home.”

While currently any housing of illegal immigrants is a strictly voluntary endeavor there are fears Governor Healey could use her power to require citizens to take illegal immigrants into their homes because the “right to housing” is a law.

If that were to happen, it could turn even a state as blue as Massachusetts into a bright shade of crimson on the electoral maps.

Hopefully for the law-abiding in Massachusetts and elsewhere, the public sends a powerful signal in November that drastic changes in leadership are needed.

Dead Bidenmobiles have drivers rolling their eyes as an electric vehicle graveyard appears in Chicago

0

Nearly the entire nation is under a major winter storm watch as temperatures dip well below zero in some places.

However, in cities like Chicago, Illinois, the frigid temps are something many residents get used to.

Now some parts of Chicago have turned into an electric vehicle graveyard with dead EV’s everywhere.

Tesla EV’s won’t charge in frigid Chicago

Several Tesla owners throughout the Chicago area were left stranded when their vehicles wouldn’t charge thanks to extremely frigid temperatures.

The charging stations have been deemed useless as drivers have been trying to give their EV batteries a charge with no luck, many of whom had been trying for hours or even days.

Tyler Beard, who had been attempting to charge his Tesla at a supercharging station in Oak Brook, Illinois, told Fox 32 Chicago, “Nothing. No juice. Still on zero percent. And this is like three hours being out here after being out here three hours yesterday.”

Beard wasn’t alone, as many other Tesla owners also tried to get a charge after waiting in long lines or getting stuck behind abandoned cars in several locations in the Chicago area.

“This is crazy. It’s a disaster. Seriously,” said Chalis Mizelle, another Tesla owner who told Fox 32 Chicago she abandoned her car and got a ride from a friend after her EV simply would not take a charge.

One man commented, “We got a bunch of dead robots out here.”

Kevin Sumrak also told the local Fox station he landed at Chicago O’Hare International Airport, only to find his Tesla dead on arrival.

The vehicle wouldn’t start, so he had to pay for a flatbed tow truck to take the vehicle to a charging station.

Mark Bilek of the Chicago Auto Trade Association said that cold weather can make it difficult for electric vehicles to charge correctly.

“It’s not plug and go. You have to precondition the battery, meaning that you have to get the battery up to the optimal temperature to accept a fast charge,” said Bilek.

At another charging station in Evergreen Park, several Teslas were stranded and left alone in the parking lot.

Many drivers said the charging stations weren’t working at all, and those that did took much longer than usual to charge.

Tesla owner Brandon Welbourne told the Chicago Leader, “I’ve been here for over five hours at this point, and I still have not gotten to charge my car. A charge that should take 45 minutes is taking two hours.”

Welbourne also said he had already seen at least 10 Tesla vehicles towed from the time he arrived at the charging station.

An infrastructure nightmare

The situation in Chicago begs the question, if one of the nation’s leading EV manufacturers with the most advanced charging network in the country can’t handle cold temperatures, what makes EV drivers of other makes and models think theirs will work?

On the other hand, owners of traditional gas-powered vehicles can easily refuel their cars anywhere, and at any time, regardless of the weather.

While many consumers are hesitant to buy EVs due to “range anxiety,” it looks like “weather anxiety” can now be added to the list.

Democrat stronghold is burning cash in schools for one reason that has parents up in arms

0

Democrats have a death grip on the public school system.

The teachers’ unions scratch their backs and vice versa.

And a Democrat stronghold is burning cash in schools for one infuriating reason.

Democrats have a virtual monopoly on K-12 education, particularly in major cities, which means that accountability is lacking.

In Chicago, one of the largest school districts in the country, a staggering number of laptops, iPads, and other devices have gone missing.

Roughly 77,000 devices were lost…in one school year.

The thousands of lost devices represented an eye-popping loss of $23 million.

With approximately 340,000 students and 22,000 teachers in the Chicago Public School (CPS) system, the 77,000 lost devices meant that one device was lost for every fifth teacher or student.

Worse yet, CPS spent $3 million on track systems that have not worked.

And the trend of lost devices is going in the wrong direction.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that “11% of devices were marked as lost or stolen during the 2021-2022 school year. An expert cited by the inspector general called that an ‘alarming’ amount. In the 2020-21 school year, 8% of the district’s technology assets were listed as lost, up from 3% in 2018-19…Those assets also included air purifiers and projectors.”

Perhaps the most infuriating thing about this is that taxpayers are the ones footing the bill for computers and air purifiers and projectors disappearing.

The CPS inspector general wrote in a report that “key CPS officials could not cite any examples of any tech device marked lost in 2021-2022 that was later returned based on a Lost Property police report. CPS is eliminating the requirement that lost property police reports be filed, per the OIG recommendation.”

So reporting the lost or stolen property has had zero impact on actually recovering the equipment.

Meanwhile, the common complaint from Democrats is that they need more funding for schools.

Perhaps they should start by not incinerating the cash they do get.

In addition to lost equipment, Chicago has also had to deal with a startling number of sexual assault investigations regarding teachers and underage students.

The Office of Inspector General Sexual Allegations Unit (SAU) reported for 2022 that the SAU “closed 300 more cases than the unit did in 2021, thanks in large measure to new procedures in the intake and assessment of complaints that were enacted late last year, the Board’s investment of resources in the unit and the collaboration with partner CPS departments, notably the Office of Student Protections.”

But there are still over 300 pending cases going back to 2018.

CPS is a giant mess, and money is not the root of the problems.

This blue state teacher just gave parents another reason to yank children out of government-run schools

0

Democrats have relied on government-run schools to indoctrinate and train the next generation of Leftist activists for decades.

Parents finally saw the woke propaganda firsthand during the pandemic when they were hands-on in assisting their children’s school work from home. 

Now one blue state teacher just gave parents another reason to yank children out of government-run schools.

Government-run indoctrination

Teachers’ unions across the country force all educators to pay union dues for the privilege of employment.

They then turn around and donate those dues dollars to help elect Democrat candidates for elected office.

Those Democrats then block any common sense education reforms – like school choice, for example – that would offer better education opportunities to American students.

It’s a vicious cycle that is deteriorating the quality and reliability of the American education system.

Government school systems are now going so far, they’re literally putting children in danger at the hands of virtue signaling radicals.

Fortunately, parents are starting to wake up and pull their children out of government- run schools.

Pandemic regulations that forced students out of the classroom helped expedite the flight away from so-called “public” schools.

According to the Urban Institute, during the pandemic, there was a 30% increase in homeschooling in the United States. 

Meanwhile, the Household Pulse Survey found that currently, about 5.5% of students nationwide are now homeschooled.

But those numbers could soon skyrocket after parents learn what woke schools are now doing behind their backs.

Student not allowed to be “straight”

A disturbing email exchange between a mom and a Left-wing school teacher has been unearthed and it clearly illustrates the indoctrination going on in classrooms. 

Radio talk show host, Jason Rantz has published the shocking e-mail chain that started after one Seattle mother learned the teacher had told her son he couldn’t “identify” as “straight.” 

According to Rantz’ report, Seattle history teacher, Ian Golash, had students fill out a “Social Identity Wheel” worksheet.

What business that has in a history class is anyone’s guess.  

The worksheet instructed students to identify their race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, physical condition, any motional or developmental disabilities, and their sexual orientation. 

Golash wasn’t pleased when one 15-year-old student labeled himself, “straight.” 

The child’s mom emailed Golash, questioning why he would do such a thing. 

“I did not tell anyone what words they should use to identify themselves,” Golash replied. “In fact, I stated explicitly that I was not going to tell them how they should identify except to explain the difference between race, ethnicity and nationality.”

Speaking out of the other side of his mouth, he then explained why he objects to the term, “straight.” 

“Because I think language has power and that it shapes the culture that we live in, I did say to the class, in response to a student, that I do not use the term ‘straight’ because it implies that to not be straight is to be ‘crooked’ which could have a negative connotation,” Golash wrote.

“Patriarchy” propaganda in the classroom

The same mother claimed Golash admonished her son when the student tried to correct the teacher’s misinformation and gaslighting about Republican Governor Ron DeSantis removing Critical Race Theory from Florida schools. 

According to the mom, her son was told he was a “product of the patriarchy that teaches young boys not to care.”

Golash affirmed as much. 

“My response about patriarchy was not directed at one student, it was connected to discussions of systems of power that we had been having in the previous few days and the behavior of several boys in the class,” Golash responded. “I certainly wasn’t making any implications about your household. I was referring to a system of power that we all live in.”

Apparently, In Golash’s mind – and the mind of radical teachers just like him from coast-to-coast — it’s ok to indoctrinate students, as long as you’re not signaling out just one child for brainwashing. 

Christian minister punches back against big government bullies after they targeted him in Minnesota

0

Our nation was built on Judeo-Christian values, but the Radical Left wants to destroy that foundation.

Anyone seeking to teach the gospel has become a target of persecution in cultural and political spaces.

Now one Christian minister is punching back against big government bullies after they targeted him in Minnesota.

“Authentic manhood” model goes against DEI initiatives in prison

Pastor Anthony Schmitt has been working with inmates at a state prison in St. Cloud, Minnesota for over ten years. 

The pastor has led a 12-week course entitled “The Quest for Authentic Manhood” that focuses on orthodox Christian values. 

According to an article by the Star Tribune, the prison pastor along with colleagues has “helped more than a thousand men rehabilitate and transition back to the community. 

The prison ministry does this by instructing them on achieving “’authentic manhood’ as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God.”

But administrators at the Department of Corrections didn’t like what Schmitt and his ministry were teaching their prisoners—and they decided to put a stop to his classes. 

Citing “direct conflicts” with the DOC’s “diversity, equity, and inclusion values” they said that he could no longer continue to take them on his “quest.”

DOC concerned about teaching considering implications on homosexual relationships

According to the DOC, Schmitt was teaching courses that proposed that manhood was exclusive of homosexual men and portrayed women as “weak.” 

The officials said that they didn’t like that he was teaching women that they should be submissive and let men lead the home.

“Throughout all sessions reviewed, men were only identified as heterosexual, seeking ideal relationships and marriage with women,” DOC Assistant Commissioner Jolene Robertus told Schmitt in an email. 

Robertus was infuriated that the curriculum teaches “manhood can only be achieved through heterosexual relationships.”

Schmitt has since filed a lawsuit with the U.S. District Court in Minnesota demanding that the Quest program be reinstated at the St. Cloud prison. 

Backed by the Upper Midwest Law Center and True North Legal, Schmitt argues the program is necessary and has led to “countless powerful testimonies” of prisoner reform. 

“I was shocked and dismayed when the DOC suddenly canceled us, and I just want to be able to minister to these men, who so desperately need support and rehabilitation.”

“Rehabilitation and repentance” can lead to the “healing power of Christ”

 

According to the filing, the DOC “shut down the Quest program because it teaches that men and women have complementarian roles in family and society, [and] that men occupy a particular role in family and society…”

Robertus has stated that though she sees “the teachings do describe the woman in his role as ‘honorable,’ the reinforced stereotypes and biases can be hurtful and downright dangerous for those participants who either committed acts of violence, domestic violence, or may be the victims of violence by women…”

Schmitt’s lawsuit alleges that the actions taken by the Assistant Commissioner and the DOC “are not neutral or generally applicable” but rather seek to persecute the minister over his religious beliefs. 

The pastor is seeking to restore the program so that he can continue to serve the prison population.

“Schmitt believes that through repentance and rehabilitation, any person, including those imprisoned for crimes committed can live physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally healthy lives through the healing power of Christ…” his team contends.

Gun-grabbers are spitting nails after their gun control agenda is halted in one blue state

0

It is no secret that Democrats across the country are in overdrive to disarm law-abiding gun owners.

Anti-gun fanatics have resorted to desperate measures to snatch guns from responsible citizens to achieve this dubious goal.

But gun-grabbers are spitting nails after their gun control agenda is halted in one blue state.                                           

Oregon’s new and radical anti-gun law isn’t going into effect any time soon

Disarming law-abiding gun owners has become a top priority for the Left and Democrat lawmakers everywhere.

Democrat-controlled cities and states across the nation are practically trying to outdo each other when it comes to passing radical anti-gun legislation. 

Many public policy experts agree that Oregon’s BM 114 takes the cake, requiring any gun owners to purchase a $65 permit to exercise their Second Amendment right, while also banning any magazines above ten rounds, even for law enforcement.

BM 114, which Oregon voters approved on election Day in 2022, was set to take effect at the beginning of this year.

However, due to an injunction filed by Harney County Circuit Court Judge Robert Raschio on November 21, 2023, BM 114 was halted for the foreseeable future.

Even more damaging anti-gun radicals, litigation for BM 114 ended on January 9, 2024, meaning that the injunction against this radical law is widely considered as permanent by legal experts.

In the injunction, Judge Rashio proclaimed, “IT IS HEREBY DECLARED that Ballot Measure 114 is facially unconstitutional in all of its applications under Oregon Constitution, Article l, section 27; and IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendants and Defendants’ Agents are permanently enjoined from enforcing all provisions of Ballot Measure 14.”

In his ruling issued last November, Judge Rashio claimed, “Oregon citizens have a right to self-defense against an imminent threat of harm, which is unduly burdened by Ballot Measure 114.”

He added, “Magazines, along with the rest of a firearm’s components, are protected arms under Article |, § 27. There is no historical basis for limiting the size and capacity of firearms, including their magazines.”

Predictably, Oregon Democrats are losing their minds over this ruling, with Oregon’s Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum saying, “The Harney County judge’s ruling is wrong. Worse, it needlessly puts Oregonians’ lives at risk.” 

Rosenblum then promised further legal action, including an effort to appeal, which has so far been unsuccessful.

Oregon has demonstrated just how far Democrats are willing to go when it comes to gun grabbing

Oregon’s BM 114 represents one of the most extreme so-called gun control measures that has ever been approved in American history.

Had it not been for Judge Rashio’s injunction, this law would have stripped millions of Oregon residents of their second amendment right, forcing them to purchase permits to simply own a firearm.

Democrats across the nation are looking to Oregon for inspiration, and voters should expect similar laws to emerge in the near future in other Democrat-controlled states.
