THE CULTURAL WAR ON GUNS 3-22-2018

THE CULTURAL WAR ON GUNS

I think people are not understanding how the gun grabbers really plan to go after guns. They are unleashing a media, public relations, and anti-gun cultural agenda. The result of this operation is not only to seek Federal and state gun control measures, but to get corporations to adopt an anti-gun agenda. You don’t need to ban guns, if you convince enough corporations to stop selling guns and ammo. We have seen Dick’s sporting goods and several other store chains adopt a de-facto anti-gun agenda by no longer selling guns and ammo.

This story is about one of the major chains, Kroeger, or Fred Meyer up here in the Pacific Northwest phasing out all guns and ammo sales. The result will be to limit places you can buy guns and ammo. Again, the gun grabbers don’t have to “ban guns and ammo,” if they can make it more difficult, or even impossible to find a store that sells guns and ammo. Granted, one result of this action by the “main line stores,” will be to concentrate guns and ammo sales in smaller, more independent stores. In that sense, it has just made it more difficult, but still not impossible. I am saying we are now under siege, with gun rights, and Second Amendment rights under widespread attack. Of course, the idea is to harass gun owners by making it more difficult to exercise your Second Amendment rights.
One year from now, it will be much harder, in terms of locations and availability to buy guns and ammo, and this is even without the 21 and older age bans.

Fred Meyer phasing out sales of all guns and ammunition

PORTLAND, Ore. — Fred Meyer stores will begin phasing out sales of all guns and ammunition, a spokesperson for the company confirmed late Friday evening.

Earlier this month, Fred Meyer announced they’ll stop selling guns and ammo to anyone under 21 years of age. They’ve also confirmed they’ll pull all magazines that showcase assault-type weapons.

Here’s a statement from the company regarding the decision to stop selling guns altogether:

Fred Meyer has made a business decision to exit the firearms category. We are currently working on plans to responsibly phase out sales of firearms and ammunition. We made the decision early last week after evaluating changing customer preferences and the fact that we’ve been steadily reducing this category in our Fred Meyer stores over the last several years due to softening consumer demand. More recently we have been transitioning away from gun departments as a result of our ongoing work to optimize space in our Fred Meyer stores. The firearms category represents about $7 million annually of Fred Meyer’s revenue – and sales continue to decline.

Here is a second link to an Oregon gun grabbing group that seeks to ban “assault rifles,” in Oregon. They plan to file a ballot measure that will do so.

The link is here.

http://katu.com/news/local/oregon-initiative-would-outlaw-assault-weapons-unless-guns-are-registered-with-police

A recently filed Oregon initiative would make manufacturing, importing, possessing, purchasing or selling an assault weapon or large capacity magazine a crime — with only a few exceptions.

If passed, Oregon Initiative 42 would only allow owners to keep their assault weapons and large capacity magazines if they register them with Oregon State Police.

“I don’t like to use that phrase, but this time, when they say they’re coming to get your guns, this actually would be coming to get your guns,” said Oregon state Rep. Bill Post, R-Keizer.

Ceasefire Oregon is one of the groups behind the initiative and Executive Director Penny Okamoto says that’s not the case.

“We’ve heard this for 20 years: ‘They’re coming for our guns; they’re coming for our guns.’ Obama was coming for our guns. Ultimately, it never happened,” Okamoto said.

If the initiative goes into effect, anyone who owns an assault weapon or large capacity magazine will be required to remove them from the state, sell the items, surrender the items to a law enforcement agency for destruction, render the assault weapon permanently inoperable or, if eligible, register the assault weapon or large capacity magazine with Oregon State Police within 120 days.

Anyone who moves into Oregon with an assault weapon would have 120 days to surrender it to law enforcement, transfer it to a licensed firearm dealer, render it permanently inoperable or register it.

Unlawful possession or transfer of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine would be a Class B felony.

In order to register an assault weapon under the act, the owner would need to submit a form to the Oregon State Police with the owner’s name and address and identification number of the assault weapon. The owner must also allow police to conduct a criminal background check to confirm the person is not a prohibited possessor.

Anyone hoping to register an assault weapon or large capacity magazine must prove to police that the items are securely stored and that they are only kept on property owned by the registered owner or on someone else’s property with express permission.

The initiative includes exceptions for government officers, members of the armed forces or peace officers. It would also allow firearm manufacturers to the build assault weapons to sell to the armed forces or law enforcement agencies in Oregon.

Sales and transfers of the weapons or large capacity magazines would only be allowed between licensed firearms dealers and branches of the armed forces or law enforcement agencies in Oregon.

The initiative defines an assault weapon as:

• A semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of the following:

  • Any grip of the weapon, including a pistol grip, a thumbhole stork or any other stock
  • Any feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand
  • A folding or telescoping stock
  • A shroud attached to the barrel, or that partially or completely encircles the barrel
  • A forward pistol grip
  • A flash suppressor, muzzle brake, muzzle compensator, or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor, muzzle brake, or muzzle compensator
  • A bayonet mount or a grenade launcher or flare launcher

• A semiautomatic pistol, or any semiautomatic, centerfire or rimfire rifle with a fixed magazine, that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

• A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches

• A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of the following:

  • Any feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand
  • A folding, telescoping or thumbhole stock
  • A shroud attached to the barrel, or that partially or completely encircles the barrel
  • The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at any location outside of the pistol grip
  • A threaded barrel capable of accepting a flash suppressor or forward pistol grip

• Semiautomatic shotgun that has both of the following:

  • Any grip of the weapon, including a pistol grip, a thumbhole stock or any other stock
  • A folding telescoping stock

• Semiautomatic shotgun that has at least one of the following:

  • A fixed magazine capacity in excess of 10 rounds or an ability to accept a detachable magazine

• Shotgun with a revolving cylinder and conversion kit, part or combination of parts from which an assault weapon can be assembled if those parts are in the possession or under control of the same person.

A large capacity magazine is defined as any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds or any conversion kit or combination or parts from which such a device can be assembled

At the end of the day, Post feels this sort of proposal is threatening to law abiding, gun owners in Oregon.

“This is not so much a gun confiscation ballot measure as it is a registry and that should scare people. Registration is the next step to confiscations, so I would just say that,” Post said.

Still, advocates believe removing the bulk of assault-style weapons from Oregon’s landscape will help prevent mass shootings in the future.

“Even if someone commits a mass shooting with a different type of firearm, especially without a high-cap magazine, that’s going to reduce the gunshot death and injury, so we know that for a fact, we have good studies on that,” Okamoto said.

 And finally, here is a link about Citigroup and guns.

Citigroup Imposes Restrictions on Client Gun Sales

Company’s Chief Executive Officer defends anti-gun policy in email provided exclusively to Infowars

 Citigroup announced Thursday it’s implementing restrictions on client firearm sales, making it the first major bank to impose such gun control measures.
In an email to employees provided to Infowars, Citigroup Chief Executive Officer Mike Corbat detailed new policies applying to “small business, commercial and institutional clients, as well as credit card partners.”

The policy is ostensibly “designed to respect the rights of responsible gun owners while helping keep firearms out of the wrong hands,” Corbat claimed.

Citi’s new “US Commercial Firearms Policy” requires firearms only be sold to people age 21 or older, that gun purchasers pass a background check, and restricts sales of bump stocks or “high-capacity magazines.”

If retail clients refuse to enact Citi’s “best practices over the coming months,” they are free to part ways with the bank, Corbat wrote.

“If they opt not to, we will respect their decision and work with them to transition their business away from Citi,” reads the email to employees.

Additionally, potential clients would be screened to ensure their businesses adhere to the new policy.

Corbat, who claims to be “an avid outdoorsman and responsible gun owner,” says the new restrictions are a great compromise for Second Amendment advocates and anti-gunners.

“We don’t have the perfect solution to supporting our Constitution while keeping our children and grandchildren safe,” he writes, adding, “But we shouldn’t let that stop us from doing our part.”

The bank’s announcement comes in the wake of a massive gun control push following a school shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead and several injured.
