South Dakota Passes ‘Constitutional Carry’ – Latest State To Protect 2A Rights

Published

on

“I’ll give you my gun when you take it from my cold, dead hands.”

The South Dakota state legislature passed a bill on Tuesday.. allowing for permit-less concealed carrying. The bill now goes to the desk of Gov. Kristi Noem, who has already expressed support for the measure.

South Dakota is a reliably a red state — President Trump carried the state in 2016 by 30 points — The Hill reports that members of the South Dakota Sheriff’s Association testified Monday in the state House that the bill should ideally be limited to South Dakota residents. A companion bill that mandates such a restriction was introduced in the state House on Friday, but thus far has not been scheduled for a hearing.

A Pro-gun control group “Everytown for Gun Safety” released their own poll attempting to demonstrate that the proposed bill was at odds with South Dakotans’ desires. Per the Sioux Falls Argus Leader:

Eighty-four percent of South Dakotans said they support the state’s concealed carry permit requirement, according Everytown for Gun Safety’s poll results released Tuesday. The scientific poll surveyed 875 South Dakotans and was completed by Survey USA.

The support for the current law requiring a concealed carry permit was also bipartisan — 81 percent of people who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 and 92 percent of people who voted for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said they supported requiring a concealed carry permit, according to the poll.

Eighty-five percent of gun owners, and 84 percent of people holding a concealed carry permit, said they support South Dakota’s current concealed carry permit law, according to the poll.

Fifty-nine percent of South Dakotans said they’d also be less likely to support a legislator and Noem if they supported repealing the state’s current concealed carry permit law.

South Dakota seems poised to become the fourteenth state with a “constitutional carry” legal regime. The passage for such laws is a top priority item for many state-level Second Amendment activist groups, and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram notes that it is already on the radar for some at the recently commenced Texas legislative session:

State Rep. Jonathan Stickland has filed a bill to allow “Constitutional Carry” — to let any Texan who legally owns a handgun carry it openly or concealed without first getting a permit — across the state.

“It is a major legislative priority for the Republican Party and very popular with my constituents,” said Stickland, R-Bedford. “I think there’s a real need for it.”

U.S. Constitution (Supreme Law of the Land, ALL of the Land, Not Just South Dakota, Dallas Texas, etc)

Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms. Ratified 12/15/1791.

“A Well Regulated Militia, Being Necessary to the Security of a Free State, the Right of The People to Keep and Bear Arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”

The Unalienable Right to Bear Arms (guns), does not mean only visible arms-guns, it means “Right to Bear Arms” (guns), period, as in “Shall Not Be Infringed.”

Nowhere in the 2nd Amendment does it say anything about concealment or otherwise.

Any and all guns laws that infringe on that “Unalienable Right to Bear Arms” are Unconstitutional, period!

Obviously, we know the Democrats in every part of the country and Federal elected office could care less about what the U.S. Constitution says. Always remember..the left is hell-bent on taking your guns away. They don’t want you to be armed. Democrats know they can’t have full power unless they take away your guns. And it’s pretty clear on why they want that.

But let’s be clear on one thing here…The 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution should be the only gun permit you need.

Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Apprehend Over 164,000 Illegals In Less Than 7 Months

Published

This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited and republished with permission:

The Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol has apprehended more than 164,000 illegal immigrants in less than seven months. That’s simply staggering. They were taken into custody between Brownsville and Del Rio during the first seven months of fiscal 2019. Approximately 162,000 illegal immigrants were taken into custody during all of 2018 so this breaks that record.

Apprehended migrants are separated into three categories: Unaccompanied children, family units and single adults. Each category showed steep increases, according to Customs and Border Protection figures. They are simply being swarmed and overwhelmed on the southern border. That’s a military tactic by the way and it’s working.

From the Caller Times:

“From Oct. 1 through March 31, the number of unaccompanied children in the sector was up 56 percent compared with the same period the year before. Family unit apprehensions were up nearly 230 percent. And the apprehension of single adults was up 31 percent.

“The southwestern United States is divided up among nine Customs and Border Protection sectors. The Rio Grande Sector is by far the busiest with an average of about 1,100 migrants per day taken into custody.

“According to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ budget documents, providing care for unaccompanied children taken into custody by immigration authorities has been costing about $1.5 billion a year for the past few years. But the number could top $2 billion for the new budget year that begins in October, the agency said.

“The apprehension figures do not include migrants who show up at U.S. ports of entry to seek asylum.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released the following statement:

“Release Date: April 23, 2019

“EDINBURG, Texas – The U.S. Border Patrol Rio Grande Valley Sector continues to experience unprecedented numbers in illegal alien apprehensions.

“Less than seven months into the fiscal year, the Rio Grande Valley Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol Sector has apprehended more than 164,000 people to date, surpassing the total number of apprehensions made in fiscal year 2018. The sector continues to work with its federal, state, local and non-governmental partners in addressing the influx of Central and South American migrants crossing into South Texas.

“On average, Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley arrest more than 1100 people per day.”

The increase is the result of an ongoing surge of migrants, most of them from Central America, who are crossing the border to seek asylum. The 2019 total for the Rio Grande Valley includes 15,310 unaccompanied minors apprehended from October through March — compared to 23,760 during the entire 2018 fiscal year — and 79,000 people who were traveling in families during the same time frame, which has already surpassed the 63,280 family members apprehended in 2018. The Border Patrol has reported similar increases along the entire southwest border.

President Trump has tried repeatedly to get funding for a wall and security on our southern border and the Democrats have obstructed him at every step. We are being invaded and this is an attack using swarming tactics. The U.S. is under siege… just build the wall already and stop all immigration for a period of time while this is sorted out. It is a brutal act of war and the violence will skyrockets as the invasion steadily increases. #WeBuildTheWall

Under Bernie’s Plan, 183K Murderers, 164K Rapists Would Be Allowed To Vote From Prison

Published

on

Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) statement that those in prison should be allowed to vote is far more sweeping than most know. His proposal would allow some 183,000 convicted murderers and 164,000 convicted rapists to vote from their jail cells. In a CNN town hall this week, Sanders endorsed allowing all convicted U.S. citizens to vote from prison – including the Boston Marathon Bomber. It’s not a new stance for him… he’s always supported the felon vote.

“So, I believe people who commit crimes, they pay the price and they get out of jail, they certainly should have the right to vote,” Sanders said. “But, I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) doesn’t want to be left out of this insanity either. She openly hinted that she would be open to such a plan, saying “I think we should have that conversation” when asked about allowing convicted criminals to vote from their cells. Of course, she is also saying she will use an executive order for gun control if she is elected president.

From Breitbart:

“The latest data compiled by the Prison Policy Initiative concludes that there are more than 1.6 million convicted criminals in local, state, and federal prisons across the country. This includes about 183,000 convicted murderers and 164,000 convicted rapists.

“Not all 1.6 million convicted criminals in local, state, and federal custody are American citizens, though. State and local prisons have yet to collect data deciphering between the citizen versus noncitizen populations of their prison populations.

“Federal data concludes that noncitizens make up about 25 percent of the federal prison population.

“Should this be true of local and state prisons, as well, this would mean that about 1.2 million convicted criminals in prison today could be eligible to vote from their cells under Sanders’ plan — including anywhere between 137,000 and 183,000 convicted murderers and potentially between 123,000 to 164,000 convicted rapists.

“Similarly, the Sanders plan would potentially allow anywhere between 14,250 and 19,000 citizens convicted of manslaughter to vote from their cells, as well as up to 154,000 convicted assailants.

“Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, as Breitbart News has reported, organizations funded by billionaire George Soros are working to restore the voting rights of about 1.4 million felons in Florida after the state approved the measure last year.”

Even Piers Morgan, who I sometimes agree with, but who is a rabid gun control advocate, thinks that Sanders is a lunatic for suggesting this. “I couldn’t really believe what I was hearing,” said Morgan, a former CNN host and DailyMail.com editor-at-large, calling the idea “utter lunacy.” He expressed disbelief that any Democrat could support such a proposal and believe they can defeat President Trump in 2020. He’s absolutely right. It’s a gift to Trump.

Carlson said Democrats don’t trust convicted felons “to go deer hunting” but are okay with them choosing the next president. “What they’re really saying is ‘we don’t care at all about anything. We’re nihilists, all we want is power and if we see a reservoir of potential voters, we’re gonna tap that reservoir,'” he said.

Bingo… that’s exactly what I’ve been saying for some time about the Democrats. It will backfire and Trump will get a second term because of it.
