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 […]

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
