If you’ve been following the news at all lately, then you’ve no doubt heard about the latest efforts to impeach President Trump. This time the Democrats are saying that it has to do with improper use of influence involving Ukraine.
But according to the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, that’s not the case at all (hat tip to here for the lead). Who are the CCRKBA (a name which just doesn’t lend itself to an acronym), they are “a non-profit organization [which] is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.” The CCRKBA released this statement on November 1, 2019:
The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today declared there is a “hidden agenda” behind the impeachment efforts of House Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi and it is designed to tie up the U.S. Senate and derail efforts to confirm more pro-Second Amendment judges to the federal courts.
“It is clear to us that Capitol Hill anti-gunners are doing everything in their power to prevent confirmation of conservative judges who will adhere to the Constitution,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “By burdening the Senate with this nonsense, Democrats believe they can prevent confirmation of pro-Second Amendment judicial nominees during the final year of President Donald Trump’s first term.”
Gottlieb noted that the president is fulfilling perhaps his most important campaign pledge, which was to bring balance back to the federal courts. Restoring that balance could be the president’s greatest legacy, he said.
“The same people pushing impeachment have been staunch allies of the gun prohibition lobby,” Gottlieb observed. “Anti-gunners have been horrified since Day One of Donald Trump’s presidency that he was actually determined to rein in the activist federal court system by nominating judges who understand there are ten amendments in the Bill of Rights, and that the Second Amendment really means what it says.
“More than eleven years after the landmark 2008 Heller ruling and more than nine years after the 2010 McDonald decision,” he continued, “some courts still act as though neither of those Supreme Court rulings existed. But the president has been filling court vacancies with solid, intelligent jurists who understand the difference between regulated privileges and constitutionally-enumerated, fundamental rights. Capitol Hill anti-gunners and their gun prohibitionist friends can’t stand it, and they’re using the impeachment crusade as a smoke screen to distract the Senate from doing its duty.
“This isn’t about impeaching the president,” Gottlieb stated. “This is about impeaching our Second Amendment rights. I guarantee that American gun owners are going to remember this in 2020.”
So, there you have it: the unvarnished truth that you aren’t going to hear from the mainstream media. Why? Because they know that there are millions of Americans like you and me that support our 2nd Amendment rights and that they can’t get their crazy gun control legislation through Congress. That’s why they want to pack the court with anti-Constitutional, anti-gun nutcases, and they can’t do that while Trump is in office.
So, the question is, now that you know the truth, what are you going to do with this information?
Being familiar with the CCRKBA, I must say they have never put out one word of false information in their history. It’s a pleasure to read such knowledgably researched info. I had never given any thought to such reasonable, logical ideas for the criminal behavior put forth by the Damnocrapic party stooges attempting to gain control of our country.
Overreach in any direction is wrong. Yet it is done because the other side did it and only sound bites get noticed. The founding fathers only knew single shot muzzle loading guns. Would they have written the second amendment ,as it is, if machine guns had been invented by then? What do you think?
The reason why there is NO type of gun, or a weapon spoken or written about in the Second Amendment is because it bears nothing on what the amendment is about. Americans have the right to suppress a tyrannical government and defend themselves from such. The founders came from countries where they did not have the right to do so.
The amendment was written just after a bitter war, and later adopted after Congress was in place. If machine guns had been invented THEN, they probably would have thought “Man, this will stop them!”
Stan, please stop referencing falsehoods. For one example look up “Puckle Gun”.
The muzzleloaders you refer to were the WEAPONS OF WAR at the time. That’s what the Second Amendment is about. Get over it.
Just about what I was going to say. Thank you. Besides, just because the founders only knew about muzzle loaders doesn’t meant hey would’ve changed their minds. That’s a big childish assumption on the part of anti-gunners. Their thought was towards being prepared as well as could be for any eventuality a la the communist party infiltration and social/liberal dementia.
YEP! WE the People HAVE THE SECOND AMENDMENT due to the King of England FORCED a FIGHT upon us when he tried to CONFISCATE OUR WEAPONS and POWDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The ILLEGAL “impeachment” attempt is nothing but an ATTEMPTED COUP on the American People and on the American government.
“A L L ” of the CONS(representatives) in the current CON-gress whose names are attached to this COUP MUST be ARRESTED, CHARGED and PROSECUTED for TREASON against America!!!!!!!!!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whether this is fact or conspiracy theory, the truth remains that Trump has committed numerous offenses deserving of impeachment. Would be nice to have a conservative president who’s not an ass clown.
Julie please turn off CNN. It’s the first step toward clearer thinking
That’s not the “whole” story. Does anybody know what “November 22” is. Not just the say president Kennedy was shot. But also the government runs out of money again, for the 2nd time this year. And the government may be forced to shut down again. Everybody knows how bad the last government shutdown went. They(Republicans and Dem ocrats covered it up with kaunaugh hearings. Why we the people was fixaided on the hearing Congress personal was passing bill very quietly to extend our national debt to keep the government afloat. And now they will do it again. And we the America people will not find out about this until several weeks later. The value of the America dollar just keep getting smaller and value we the America people put on our lives and items we Dem so important etc. our house,cars,bank accounts savings,retirement income and so on just keep getting smaller in value. 1 dollar will be worth .97 cents after the congress is done this year. Now 3 cents does not seem like a lot but what about 10.00s or a hundred dollars. What value do you think our neighbors (other counties) will put on or money when it comes traded foods.
I see more than one goal of the liberals.Trump is a road block for all the thorns in their sides.
I have been fighting for wick for disibilityand after 9.5 years we have lost our home and just about everything we owe we r at times without food we had to cancel our life insurance I have to pawn stuff to by my insulin and they just turned us down for qic saying we make too much I would love to get help instead of spending all this money o it to impeach a president that is trying to check things out before we as a country give them 400 billion dollars for them to use for illegal purposes why people like me and my family go hungry and cant afford prescriptionsand basic needs of life
This article is an affront to me as a Vietnam Vet and a gun owner. There is a need to curtail the of guns in the USA. We are #1 in the world in the field of gun ownership and mass shootings. Is there a correlation of these two records we hold.
I am a proud black man that fears for his life in this country, systemic racism and the proliferation of firearms in this country give me pause to fear. The stand your ground law only applies to white people, being black and doing anything can cost you your life.
Would like to hear back from you on this subject.
