The left has used any excuse to take away guns, and the deadly Uvalde school shooting only gave them more ammunition to advocate for strict gun control.
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) is calling out Democrats who try to do such thing.
During an interview on Fox News, he said he does not support legislation on red flag laws, which are implemented in 19 U.S. states, calling them “unconstitutional.”
Scalise said they offer no real solution to the controversial argument of how to actually curb gun violence.
“When you have a shooting, instead of sitting down and asking ‘OK, what is really causing this, why do we see these happening more and more in the last few years,’ it immediately becomes a debate about taking away guns.”
Scalise continued to say red flag laws violate American’s right to the Second Amendment, giving them authority to enter someone’s home and take their guns away “without you even knowing that there was some kind of proceeding where somebody said ‘oh, I think that guy might be a threat,” noting that according to the Second Amendment, authorities can only seize firearms from an individual that they deem is a threat.
He stressed the fact that Due process is a constitutional right, the legal requirement that the state must respect all legal rights that are owed to a person.As crime ravages cities across the U.S., Scalise said more and more people are buying guns so they can defend themselves against violence that soft-on-crime Democratic leaders allow.“People are buying guns more to defend themselves against crime, crime is out of control…if you look at what happened in those cities, you see lot of things with the defund the police movement, with letting people out, no cash bail … they’re making it easier for people to commit crime.”Scalise […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
