You’re an hour into what is normally your every day routine. Perhaps you just finished your coffee, caught up on those emails, or just started digging in the cable trench …
In 2018, I’m not sure why this is even a matter of debate. Especially with the highway of knowledge called the internet. FMJs shouldn’t be carried; even in states (I’m only aware of New Jersey but there could be others) where hollow point use isn’t allowed. Finding that better option will take time on your part, but in the end, you will have yourself a round that is more efficient at stopping an attacker than your bulk-bought ball ammo.
It was a rainy September evening, right around 10 p.m. Officer Johnson was on foot patrol in “Chinatown” NYC. Officer Johnson called into the station that he was going on his meal break and ducked into Dewey Chin’s for a bite to eat. No sooner did he take off his slicker and hat, a woman runs into the restaurant, frantically looking for the soaking wet beat cop that just picked up his menu.
This is an amended transcript of a speech, made by “M V Consulting Inc and Liberty First Foundation NY Chapter president Michael “Vass” Vasquez to the members of the Americans for Restoring the Constitution (AFRTC) and the general public at the Vestal Public Library. The speech is an over 8,000 words long in-depth observation of Red Flag legislation in New York State and across the nation. Due to the length of the details and data, compiled from over 50 sources in an on-going investigation, in-context excerpts are being provided. Also due to time constraints, the actual live presentation truncated portions of the original documentation, without alteration of the data, details, or context.
What is your political position? To answer this question, it requires you to examine your personal beliefs and assign a label to yourself. The world in which we live is full of labels. Words intended to define everything known to man. And in the realm of politics, there is no shortage of adjectives available to describe the different forms of government employed in various countries around the globe, the political parties that exist and operate within the framework of those governments and the personal political ideologies of the citizens who live under them.
In 2018, if you are afraid of firearms, you most likely believe that the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution contains 27 of the most hated words in America. But, if you are a freedom-loving, patriotic American who believes in the Bill of Rights, you embrace these words, and others, that describe the individual civil rights which have been enshrined in the Constitution as having been endowed to us by our Creator, not the government.
We need to keep the pressure on New York State Senators to reject all 5 Red Flag Bills in the State Legislature. While the major news media in New York State (and the country) have pushed the highly distracting partisan message that the US Government is akin to Nazi Germany, the dearth of coverage of these Constitution-killing “Red Flag” Bills – sometimes called ERPO or Extreme Risk Protection Orders – remains deafening. But citizens are learning the facts for themselves.
What is at stake is the Second Amendment, the Fourth Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment, and the Due Process Clause. This will affect not only our education system, not only legal law-abiding firearm owners but the structure of families. All for an illusion of safety that is neither guaranteed nor even implied to be real. The trade is unbalanced and expressly targeted to provide for the political aspirations of an elected official seeking a 2020 presidential run, and a Party seeking to maintain power at all costs.
We need to reevaluate the way we address the arguments that the pro-gun control group is using to promote their agenda to disarm the American Public. The arguments they are putting forth can easily be rebutted but you have to actually listen to them and then offer an argument that will actually produce some results instead of offering the same old rhetoric.
If we approach with understanding and genuinely listen to their fears and concerns and address those in a calm, non-threatening manner they will be more likely to listen and more open to understanding. The more rational we are and the more understanding of them we are the more likely we will be able to influence their position.
