Ammo Shortage Hits Law Enforcement

The spike in new gun purchases has led to a shortage of ammunition leading to raging concerns among local police departments and civilians alike.

Several Washington D.C.-area police departments have stated that the supply of ammunition sold by manufacturers and distributors is lingering on scarcity that can lead to problems for agencies buying ammunition for officer training and certification.

The ammunition shortage also creates hurdles and headaches for private gun shops and owners, some of whom report skyrocketing prices.

“I talk to Police departments ranging from federal, state and local departments who tells about their daily struggle in finding ammunition to even qualify officers,” told departments — daily. They are struggling to find ammunition to even qualify the officers,” said Curt Sebastian, co-owner of SSG Tactical gun shop in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

The shortage, he adds has led to a quadruple in the price of some ammunition and drained his supply.  “There will come a point if things keep going the way they are, I don’t and won’t have enough inventory to be open six days a week,” he said.

Sebastian said that a box of ammo traditionally selling for $9 to $14 now costs about $50.

The FBI records assessed by News4 I-Team reveals a surge in new gun purchase background checks coupled with the number of people applying for firearms background jump has leaped by almost 1 million on a monthly average, starting from the pandemic start. This wave of new buyers led to a drain in the ammunition supply, according to Sebastian

He said that 85 percent of his customers have been first-time gun owners together with clients stocking up during the past year as the result of civil unrest, election and the transition of power in DC and you have the perfect storm for a shortage, according to Sebastian.

ATF is the Key to Biden’s Gun Control

Joe Biden nominee – the former ATF agent turned gun control activist – is set to be in charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

The new ATF boss will be appointed in a few weeks while the administration is engaging in what is called “pre-hearing spins” relying on New York Times.

A long piece in the publication describes the agency in charge of our firearms industry as the “whipping boy” for NRA in years past. The NRA has long had a pretty decent history of influence over the agency.

The President ordered a ban on the homemade-firearm kits defined as “ghost guns”, expected to be implemented by the A.T.F. For fleshing out gun policy, Biden has demanded the A.T.F. spearhead the first comprehensive federal survey of weapons-trafficking patterns since 2000.

In all likelihood, it is expected to be shouldered by the nominee, former A.T.F.  agent and gun-control activist, David Chipman.

It was at the N.R.A.’s instigation that Congress limited the bureau’s budget and have limited leeway on collection and usage of gun ownership data.

It is also marked by limited unannounced inspections of gun dealers. It was 15 years back that the N.R.A. successfully lobbied for the director’s appointment subject to Senate confirmation and subsequently helped block all but one nominee from taking office.

Chipman didn’t respond when asked for a comment through an official with Ms. Giffords’s gun-control group. In the event that Congress doesn’t confirm Chipman’s appointment, the other way is for Biden to appoint him as the “acting director” – which would give him limited power and authority.

It is expected that gun owners should lobby their senators to oppose Chipman’s nomination with gun control activities.

One thing The New York Times ignored is that Democrats have offered up multiple candidates that couldn’t pass the floor with a majority of the US Senate.

In 2020, President Obama Barack Obama nominated A.T.F. agent Andrew Traver as the permanent director but failed to receive a vote because several senators spoke out over Traver’s anti-gun attitudes. The second nominee, B. Todd Jones was ultimately confirmed but remained in office for less than two years, retired in 2015 and took a job with the NFL.

Chipman boasts 25 years at the A.T.F.  while spending nearly a decade with gun control groups such as Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Giffords. The New York Times stated that Chipman may not get the votes for confirmation.

Former top N.R.A  official says:

The Chipman pick “is poking people in the eye. I think the president would be better served by appointing a more apolitical person and building more bridges to bipartisanship.

Pastor Artur Pawlowski Arrested After Holding “Illegal” Church Service

Following the holding of an “illegal” church service on Saturday, police surrounded and arrested the Pastor of the Cave of Adullam Church in Calgary, Alberta, Canada named Artur Pawlowski.

He was described as the brave pastor who shouted down cops who interrupted his church service during Holy Week.

He yelled to cops: “Out of this property you Nazis! Gestapo is not allowed here! Out, Nazi! Out! Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back here you Nazi psychopaths!” Pawlowski kicked out the Gestapo this weekend. Adam Soos of @RebelNewsOnline tweeted: “Artur Pawlowski’s supporters have ejected Calgary Police from the church. We expect they will return in force.”

Pawlowski’s fellow pastor Henry Hildebrandt posted the picture of the suspect being arrested by the Canadian Gestapo.

He told: “Earlier this afternoon, my fellow pastor Artur Pawlowski was arrested in Calgary for the crime of holding a church service, as he does every Saturday morning. Are you awake yet? The Gestapo in Canada has been gunning for Pastor Pawlowski ever since and they arrested him this weekend.”

DOJ Reveals Proposed New Rules Targeting Ghost Guns

In a new proposed rule late on Friday, the Biden administration is seeking to impose new restrictions on home-built firearms and aiming to redefine the “receiver”.

The latter strives to deliver the first new rules in what is expected to be a barrage of anti-gun regulations aimed at restricting the firearms industry and law-abiding gun owners.

A press release by the Department of Justice, Attorney General Merrick Garland spins the new proposal as an attempt to “update the definitions of ‘firearm’ and related parts for the first time since 1968.”

Attorney General Garland neglected to mention that the definitions that will be changed were part of the Gun Control Act of 1968; legislation passed by Congress – not imposed by executive action.

The new rules would require that manufacturers include a serial number on the firearm “frame or receiver” in easy-to-build firearm kits.

Moreover, it aims to cut the number of “ghost guns on streets” while setting out requirements for federally licensed firearms dealers to have a serial number added to 3D printed guns or other un-serialized firearms they take into inventory.

Even unfinished frames and receivers need to be serialized if they are sold as part of a kit,, though the Department of Justice (DOJ) has kept silent on whether or not the unfinished gun parts must be serialized if they are sold by themselves.

“These courts’ interpretation of ATF’s regulations, if broadly followed, could mean that as many as 90 percent of all firearms now in the United States would not have an identifiable frame or receiver,” the document said. “Those firearms would include numerous widely available models, such as Glock-type and Sig Sauer P32013 pistols, that do not utilize a hammer – a named component – in the firing sequence.”

The ATF spoke on the necessity to revise the definition of a receiver in ensuring it won’t “be misinterpreted by the courts, the firearms industry, or the public at large to mean that most firearms in circulation have no part identifiable as a frame or receiver.”

The proposed receiver definition calls on the need for one fire control component – such as a trigger mechanism, cylinder, or firing pin – instead of requiring multiple parts as the current definition does.

The ATF announced plans to keep in place the determinations on which specific parts would qualify as receivers for guns currently on the market and create a voluntary process for gun makers to submit new designs for determinations.

On the other hand, courts are not lending a misinterpretation to the ATF’s regulations and remain correct in the definition of what constitutes a firearm. Now, the DOJ wants to declare the words “frame” and “receiver” now mean something entirely different than what they’ve meant since 1968.

One reason as to why the ATF and DOJ didn’t make an effort to update the definitions before now is considered as a real stretch in coming up with something which isn’t a receiver and suddenly reversing 50 years of existing regulations.

Lawrence G. Keane, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, says that the firearms industry trade group will “carefully look at the proposed rule and will gather input from our members. The details will matter. We are fully aware of the impact that this proposed rule could have on the firearm industry and gun owners in general. We are interested to know if the proposed rule is consistent with what we saw in the leaked draft documents or if it has changed and what those changes might be. NSSF will file comments concerning the rule.”

The proposed rule is expected to wait for the 90-day public comment phase and once it is published at the Public Register website, comments would be made.

In the past, there has been overwhelming opposition that helped stop a bad draft from turning into a bad reputation. However, it is expected that Biden is prepared to move ahead, irrespective of the public feedback.

Here’s what Biden will REALLY ban

As you know, Joe Biden announced the Executive Powers and Actions designed to: 

  • Require “Ghost Guns” to be serialized and go through a background check
  • Adding Arm Braces to the National Firearms Act (NFA) and determine their use to create an SBR and require a background check and tax stamp
  • Creating an expanded Federal Red Flag System where your friends and family can report you and get your guns taken away without due process
  • Reducing black and brown gun crimes; Reducing gun violence in urban communities through tools other than incarceration,” through MEDICAID.

The question remains: “what are the implications for an average citizen?”

People like you and I.

Based on an earlier precedent set by former President Donald Trump’s, “Bump Stock Ban” conducted in the same via executive order for the DOJ to act and set against the context of a citizen owning a firearm self-manufactured or bought and build one before the DOJ acts in less than 30 days, one will be called to declare the firm arm, fill in the 4473 form and secure a background check after putting a serial number on it.

It will be interesting to see the implications in terms of items sales to be restricted or in the event of the same to be banned or if the definition of a firearm to be altered encompassing partially manufactured receivers.

Anyone acquiring an arm brace on a pistol shooting a rifle caliber will be most likely be eligible for NFA amnesty as the ATF and DOJ made a few months earlier in their Proposed Rule Making which stipulates that the decision impacts on whether an arm brace on a weapon should be classified as a pistol or NFA weapon. It implies that the owner of the machine has a minimum of 60 days to legally acquire and run the risk to pay a $200 tax stamp in converting it to an SBR or be granted amnesty and get a FREE SBR for EVERY ARMBRACE YOU OWN.

 The slippery slope remains the Federal Red Flag laws reportedly mentioning to give “Friends and Family” the right and ability to report someone as a threat and risk of taking away all guns, removing the need for no due process. It is pointed that both in theory and at face value that it makes sense to most Karens. 

In the case someone threatens a mass shooting or suicide, their guns should be confiscated until they get help or arrested. However, this program puts friends, family, law enforcement as the judge and jury while the threat definition seems to be so vague that someone on Facebook can file a complaint on a user making a tongue in cheek joke while running the risk of police knocking on the door, weapons seized as it has already occurred in the several Red Flag States or alluding the person can be allegedly killed in their own home.

Texas Governor Calls Biden’s Gun Control Measures a ‘Show’

The Texas Gov. Greg Abbott made fun of President Joe Biden’s fresh executive actions on gun control, calling the proposals a mere ‘show’ that fails to tackle crime involving guns.

Duh.

Democrat gun control is the biggest lie.

The Governor observes:

“I think that there is no acceptable way that a president by executive order can infringe upon Second Amendment rights or alter Second Amendment rights. If the president wanted to do something more than a show—if the president really wanted to do something substantively, what he really could do by executive order is to eliminate the backlog of complaints that have already been filed about gun crimes that have taken place.”

He further explained that Americans use guns for self-defense more than ever, hinting at the border crisis being cashed on by Mexican drug cartels, the “Defund the Police” movement, and bail policies allowing what he terms as “very dangerous criminals to be released back on the streets.”

“Texans and Americans know they need their Second Amendment rights to defend themselves at a time when the United States government and other governments are doing less to defend our fellow Americans. That is exactly why we should not have any further limitations of our Second Amendment rights,” he told.

Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted: “It’s time to get legislation making [Texas] a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State passed and to my desk for signing.”

Background Checks for Firearms Breaks More Records

 

The FBI reveals that background checks for firearms reached a new high in March with some 4.7 million checks done this month, surpassing an earlier record of 4.3 million clocked in January. The numbers provided by the FBI entails background checks for firearms, permits, and other purposes pertaining to guns.

Figures were adjusted from the National Shooting Sports Foundation which reveals that gun checks alone in March stood at 2 million and constituting the highest following 2.3 million done on the corresponding period of last year.

Mark Olivio of the Foundation stated:

“The COVID-19 pandemic conditions and the push for gun ownership restrictions are propelling Americans to buy more guns.  As long as you continue to see these misguided calls for gun control to chip away the rights of law-abiding citizens and not look at legislation that’s going to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals, firearms on the hands of those who are adjudicated mentally defective, you’re going to continue to see Americans go out and exercise their right before that right is seized from them by their government.”

An alternate view was offered by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.  “The latest data released by the FBI shows that Americans continue to react to uncertainty by seeking self-protection with a firearm. This reaction follows decades of public posturing by the gun industry and the National Rifle Association (NRA) who have fueled a year of panic purchasing by promulgating fear and paranoia,” according to Kris Brown, president of the group.

“These new statistics similarly do not reflect the many firearms sold without a background check in private transfers, potentially dangerous sales that are currently legal. Those sales are not regulated and therefore not accounted for in the NICS data. We need comprehensive gun safety laws, such as universal background checks, to ensure that firearm sales are conducted safely and that individuals prohibited from buying a firearm do not obtain one,” Brown added.

Together with swelling sales of guns, NRA memberships witnessed a massive increase in recent months.

Set against mass shootings last month, President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats, are clamoring for both new gun control laws and executive action designed to curb gun ownership. There have been few mass shootings in 2020 since most American citizens spend the most time at home following the imposition of strict restrictions set against the pandemic.

However, crime saw a surge in selected cities coupled with a significant rise in murders coupled with movement to slash police funding.

FLORIDA GOVERNOR: “We Will Not Comply With Federal Vaccination Passports”

On Friday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Friday signed an executive order to deter the use of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus “vaccine passports” and became the first US Governor implementing actions against what is described by civil liberties group as a potential privacy nightmare.

The Republican Governor’s order follows unconfirmed reports that the Biden administration could be working on what is called the implementation of a vaccine passport system model in the country.

 

Earlier on Monday, Desantis said on record that he would prevent local governments and businesses in Florida from creating or requiring what is called “vaccine passports” – documents proving someone obtained the jab for the CCP virus.

The order stated, “No COVID-19 vaccine is required by law” while adding that the vaccination records are private health information” which shouldn’t be revealed by the recipient. The mandate, according to the Government, would thwart freedom and harm a patient’s privacy.

“A requirement to show a passport to take part in everyday life such as a sporting event, going to a restaurant or going to a movie theater would ‘create two classes of citizens,’” DeSantis stated.

Increasingly, airlines and cruise companies seem to favor vaccine passports to encourage travel. The State of New York has proposed its “Excelsior Pass” that can be leveraged for large-scale events such as Madison Square Garden or sporting events, and countries such as Israel has set up a vaccine passport system in February designed to offer access to gyms and hotels.

Iceland, on its part, leverages a vaccine passport to ensure foreign travel.

Saudi Arabia has launched an app-based passport for everyone who got the jab.

Glad Floridians won’t go through any of that bullshit.

ARIZONA: “We Will Not Comply With Federal Gun Control Laws”

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed a gun protection law this week as part of efforts to protect residents from tyrannical federal gun laws.

It comes after the White House making a move to restrict Second Amendment rights in all 50 states.

“The state of Arizona and its political subdivisions are prohibited from utilizing any financial resources or state personnel to administer, cooperate with or enforce any law, act, order, rule, treaty or regulation of the federal government that is inconsistent with any law of this state regarding the regulation of firearms,” according to the text of the legislation.

“If the federal government does anything that tries to infringe on our second amendment in the state of Arizona, we’re not going to comply. I was voted into office to protect our constitution the Biden Administration was clear that they want to ban AR-15s, high-capacity magazines, and we don’t think that’s right. Our Arizona gun laws are strong and we believe that law-abiding gun owners have the right to bear arms,” Biasiucci said.

This comes after President Joe Biden announced a slew of executive actions and legislative proposals on gun control while asserting that gun violence is a public health crisis” while the administration’s actions do not stand in contravention to the Second Amendment Rights.

You can see my full write up of that ridiculousness here.

Biden: No Amendment to the Constitution is Absolute

Pursuing further the President stated: But no amendment to the Constitution is absolute … From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons. So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending stand against the Constitution.”

An official from the Biden administration enumerated detailed actions to reporters on Wednesday and one told that the President will ask the Department (DOJ) to propose a month’s span a rule to stop “ghost guns.” The latter entails, “Kits that people can buy through legal means and designed to assemble a functioning arm that doesn’t carry a serial number.

Senate to Push Marijuana Legalization – Despite Biden’s Stance

Comment Your Thoughts on Marijuana Legalization Below

The controversial marijuana legislation may see some movement with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announcing that the Democrats are ready to push forward.

He said in an interview, “He [Biden] said he’s studying the issue, so [I] obviously want to give him a little time to study it. I want to make my arguments to him, as many other advocates will. But at some point, we’re going to move forward, period.”

It is hinted that during the Presidential campaign, Biden didn’t support the legalization of marijuana, and soon after holding office, he apparently disqualified staffers because of drug consumption.

Unbelievable, right? LOL

However, many seem to oppose Schumer’s statements arguing that the drug’s legalizations have led to several problems such as a spurt in crime rates and worsening in medical conditions of their parents.

Emergency room doctors in Colorado discussed the negative impact of marijuana on their patients.  The medical experts told about an increase in all drug use, encompassing marijuana with Methamphetamine use rising by 143 percent, opiates, and cannabis up by 10 percent and 57 percent respectively. Data from the ER drug screens over the past seven years supported this argument.

Dr. Karen Randall told: “If you pump a community full of drugs, you’re going to have to expect everything that’s associated with them. You’re going to have to expect the crime, addiction.”

He further said: “We’re the canary in the coal mine. Our kids are failing. Our kids are using drugs more. I can’t find health care for them. I can’t find rehab. I can’t find places to put the kids in foster care.”

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is considered the main psychoactive ingredient in today’s marijuana products and is now being extracted to achieve a potency of more than 80 percent. In the 1990s, the average potency of a joint was around 4 percent THC.
