Carlsbad Joins Revolt Against California’s ‘Sanctuary State’ Laws

1 Comment

H/T Breitbart California.

It seems there are some sane people in California after all.

The coastal city of Carlsbad joined over a dozen other local governments Monday in formally opposing California’s “sanctuary state” laws, and supporting the federal government’s lawsuit to overturn them.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Carlsbad’s City Council waded into the national “sanctuary state” issue Monday evening, voting 4-1 to back the federal government’s lawsuit against California.

They also agreed the city should file a legal brief “when appropriate” in support of the federal action against the state’s Senate Bill 54, which prohibits local law enforcement officials from investigating arrestees’ immigration status or reporting that status to federal authorities.

A handful of other local jurisdictions have taken a position on the state law, which limits what state and local law enforcement officials from investigating arrestees’ immigration status or reporting it to federal authorities. Federal officials have said the law pre-empts their authority.

So far three [San Diego County] cities — National City, Chula Vista and San Diego — have stepped up to support the state law, while two jurisdictions — Escondido and San Diego County — have voted to oppose it.

The U.S. Department of Justice filed its lawsuit in early March. The lawsuit seeks to overturn the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (HB 450), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); and the California Values Act (SB 54). The Trump administration argues that these laws violate the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause.

In the weeks that followed, local activists, inspired by the Trump administration’s intervention, urged cities and counties to defy the sanctuary state laws and support the federal lawsuit.

Carlsbad City Council Votes to Support Anti-Sanctuary Suit

Carlsbad has just become the latest city to revolt against California’s so-called ‘sanctuary state’ laws.

The first to do so was the small city of Los Alamitos, in Orange County. More than a dozen other jurisdictions have followed suit, including Orange County, San Diego County, and Tuolumne County.

Experts suggest that the state will struggle to defend at least two out of the three laws, with only SB 54 having a chance of surviving judicial muster.

Bill Nye: Taxing Cow Farts a ‘Fantastic Thing for the World’

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbarts Big Hollywood.

Here is another fantastic thing for the world if Bill Nye the non science guy would take up eating Tide Pods.

Netflix host “Science Guy” Bill Nye has a new solution for the world’s environmental problems: taxing cow farts.

“Well, this is what we can do and it’s a win-win: to have a fee on carbon. So if you are raising livestock and producing a lot of carbon dioxide with your farm equipment and the exhaust from the animals, then you would pay a fee on that and it would be reflected in the price of meat, reflected in the price of fish, reflected in the price of peanuts,” Bill Nye saidin a recent interview with the Daily Beast.

“This would be a free-market way to reckon the real cost of a meat diet to the world,” Nye continued. “But conservatives now are against such a thing because they’re against any regulation, any tax or any government involvement in anything. But again, it won’t last, and a carbon fee would be a fantastic thing for the world.

Environmentalists have been arguing this for years. In 2008, Rajendra Pachauri the then-head of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was urging people to go meat-free at least once a week to save the planet. (Easy for Pachauri since he is himself a vegetarian).

In 2010, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), also urged the world to go vegan, claiming in a report: “Animal products cause more damage than [producing] construction minerals such as sand or cement, plastics or metals. Biomass and crops for animals are as damaging as [burning] fossil fuels.”

In 2016, an Oxford University report made much the same claim: “The research, led by scientists at the Oxford Martin School, found that shifting to a mostly vegetarian diet, or even simply cutting down meat consumption to within accepted health guidelines, would make a large dent in greenhouse gases.”

But there is, in fact, little scientific evidence to support the contention that cow farts contribute in any serious way to global warming.

As climate scientist Tim Ball has argued, the myth arose because “special interest environmental groups used inadequate data and scientific knowledge to create a false narrative.”

In fact, Ball says:

Methane is 0.00017% of all atmospheric gases and only 0.36% of the total greenhouse gases. These fractions were so small that even people who didn’t understand the science became skeptical of the claims that it was doing harm.

But Nye’s cow farts theory is entirely of a piece with his other expressed views on environmentalism — many of which regurgitate the green lobby’s favorite scare stories.

Last year, for example, the Bill Nye Saves the World star charmingly hinted that the best thing older people can do to save the planet is die:

Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational. So we’re just going to have to wait for those people to “age out,” as they say. “Age out” is a euphemism for “die.” But it’ll happen, I guarantee you — that’ll happen.

Media Fail: Majority Support U.S. Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbart Jerusalem.

A majority of Americans support recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital because they know Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital since the days of King David.

The lames stream media is too ignorant to understand this fact.

The latest Rasmussen poll shows that a majority side with President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital despite the best efforts of America’s establishment media to depict last week’s opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem as a debacle.

Moreover, the trend lines in the poll clearly show that Trump won the national debate on this issue against a vast media and establishment propaganda campaign to portray it as an amateurish mistake that would explode the Arab world.

Late last year, when Trump announced the move, only 40 percent of those polled supported the president’s decision, while a near-equal number of 36 percent were opposed. Basically, the country was evenly split.

Today, however, that division has evaporated. While a majority of 51 percent support the move, only 29 percent disagree.

What’s more, the poll was taken on May 14 and 15, which means it was taken during the ceremonies surrounding the embassy’s opening while the media basically sided with Hamas. Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz explained what happened:

[Hamas uses] the dead baby strategy. You use children and women, you deliberately put them on the front lines, you make it impossible for Israel to defend itself without occasionally killing a woman or a child or an elderly person. And every time Israel accidentally kills somebody like that, Israelis grieve. Israel loses. Hamas cheers and celebrates because that’s exactly what they want. They want the media to show the body count. They want the media to show the dead baby, even though Israel tried everything in its power to avoid civilian casualties. … Israel did exactly what America is doing and the world ought to condemn: Hamas and also the media that incentivizes and encourages Hamas to do this by reporting in such a biased manner.

Throughout almost all of Monday and Tuesday, the same days this poll was taken, the media swamped the airwaves with horrific pictures that blamed Israel — and, by extension, Trump — for “instigating” this violence with the embassy move.

Newspapers, websites, and cable TV were full of self-proclaimed experts and elites accusing Trump of having “blood on his hands.”

Obviously, none of it worked. The American people moved in the exact opposite direction. 

Mick Mulvaney Backs Plan to Oust Paul Ryan, Force Dems to Vote for Nancy Pelosi

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbarts Big Government.

Make Nancy Pelosi the albatross around the necks of the DemocRats during the midterm elections.

White House budget director Mick Mulvaney on Sunday endorsed the idea of making Democrats vote for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) before the November midterm elections.

At a conference sponsored by the Weekly Standard, Fox News host Bret Baier asked Mulvaney what he thought of the idea of making Speaker Paul Ryan step down and make Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy the next speaker before the midterm election.

Mulvaney said:

I’ve talked with Kevin about this privately but not as much publicly. Wouldn’t it be great to force a Democrat running in a tight race to have to put up or shut up about voting for Nancy Pelosi eight weeks before an election? That’s a really, really good vote for us to force if we can figure out how to do it.

House Minority Leader Pelosi suggested in May that she intends to serve as the next Speaker if Democrats take the House after the November elections.

“We will win. I will run for speaker. I feel confident about it. And my members do, too,” Pelosi said.

Senior House Democrats, however, told reporters in March that if Democrats took the House in November, then Pelosi would not necessarily become Speaker.

Mike Allen of Axios wrote:

Top Democrats tell me that if they take back the House in November, a restoration of Speaker Nancy Pelosi is no longer guaranteed. In fact, some well-wired House Democrats predict she will be forced aside after the election and replaced by a younger, less divisive Dem.

Even in her home state of California, the San Jose Mercury News found that “only two” of the 34 Democrats running for Congress in competitive Republican-held seats in California publicly committed to voting for Pelosi as the next Speaker.

A February poll found that only 29 percent of Americans approve of Pelosi.

Pelosi suggested that if Democrats were to win the House, they will push to raise taxes, pass gun control legislation, and push for amnesty for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal aliens.

“Certainly that will be among the things we will do right away,” the California Democrat said.

Marine Killed in WWII Returned Home for Burial

Leave a comment

H/T War History OnLine.

R.I.P. Corporal Raymond A. Barker December 20,1920-November 20,1943.

Corporal Raymond A. Barker died fighting with the US Marine Corps in World War II but his body has only recently been discovered and identified. He was buried with full military honors at Spring Grove Cemetery in Delavan, Wisconsin, on Saturday, 5th May 2018.

On November 20, 1943, the US attacked the Japanese forces on Betio, an island in the Tarawa Atoll of the Gilbert Islands. Around 1,000 US Marines and sailors were killed and over 2,000 were wounded during the three-day battle. Barker was one of the fatalities, dying on the first day of fighting at the age of 22.

For decades, authorities classified Barker’s body as “nonrecoverable.” Last year, however, the Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) utilized “advanced investigative techniques” to find places on Tarawa that they believed had been used to bury fallen US troops. It is the DPAA’s responsibility to account for fallen troops to their families and to the government.

John Gibbus, Barker’s nephew, said that the DPAA found some bones and used DNA samples from living family members to positively identify the remains.

A second Marine was also discovered at Tarawa and returned to the US for burial on Saturday. Marine Corps Sergeant David Quinn was buried in Temple, New Hampshire, also with full military honors.

A group of Marines was on hand when Barker’s casket arrived in Wisconsin. They saluted his casket before carrying it and placing it in a hearse. A group of onlookers gathered, waving American flags and saluting Barker as he was taken through the streets of his hometown.

The governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, ordered flags flown at half-mast in honor of Barker and his service.

Barker served in the 2nd Tank Battalion of the 2nd Marine Division. He was buried next to his parents. Previously, a gold star had marked his place in the cemetery while he was listed as missing in action.

A Marine fires on a Japanese pillbox.

The Battle of Tarawa was one of the bloodiest in World War II. The US suffered nearly as many casualties in three days of fighting there as they suffered in six months of fighting at Guadalcanal Island.

The Gilbert Islands were considered important to the US commanders as they were the first in a string of “stepping stone”s that would allow the military to cross the Pacific on the way to Japan. Operation Galvanic was thus launched in November 1943 with the intention of capturing key points on the islands.

The Japanese had heavily fortified the Tarawa Atoll, including the island of Betio. Though Betio is only two miles long and half a mile wide, it contained 100 pillbox bunkers, seawalls, an elaborate trench system, coastal guns, antiaircraft guns, heavy and light machine guns, and light tanks. The natural reefs of Betio’s beaches were augmented with barbed wire and mines. The island was further defended by over 4,500 Japanese troops.

Empty helmets and spent artillery shells mark the graves of Marines who fell at Tarawa, March 1944.

The US strategy for conquering Betio required precision timing but that timing was thrown off almost from the very beginning. Heavy turbulence slowed the boarding of the landing vessels by the Marines. An air attack scheduled to occur before the invasion began was delayed, throwing the rest of the timing off. The landing vessels were forced to wait, exposed to enemy fire, until the air raid occurred.

On top of everything else, the tide was lower than expected that morning. The troop transports made it onto the island, but the boats with the heavier equipment got jammed on the coral reefs. Marines had to abandon their boats and wade through the chest-high water while being shot at by the Japanese. Many died in the water. Those who got to shore were exhausted and many of them were wounded, without any means of communicating with the supporting forces. And things got worse when the abandoned craft and dead bodies hampered the landing of reinforcements.

By the end of the day, 5,000 managed to land on Betio, but another 1,500 had died in the process.

I Am a Gun & This Is What I Have to Say

Leave a comment

H/T AmmoLand.

These are words of wisdom about guns and irresponsible gun owners. 

New York, NY  -(Ammoland.com)-  I am a Gun. I am not a person. I, myself, am incapable of harming anyone. Only a person is capable of harming another person. I cannot, myself, harm a person. And I cannot force a person to use me for an evil purpose. In the hands of a rational, competent, law-abiding person, I serve a greater good. In the hands of an irrational, incompetent, lawless individual, I serve a dark end. But, I, myself, must be held blameless because I am not a person.

Many ill-informed individuals are quick to cast aspersions on me. They will say or suggest that I am evil incarnate. I am not. I do not have the power of choice. I do not have “free will.” Only a human being has the power of choice; only a human being has free will. I do not. Only a human being can choose to do good or ill, in accordance with that person’s “will.” I cannot. Still, there are those who believe, falsely, that I am evil, and strenuously make that claim. That truly puzzles me; for, only a person who misuses me can be deemed evil.

Those who denigrate and demean me fail to realize the enormous benefit that I have brought and continue to bring to this Nation. The United States could not exist but for me. The founders of this free Republic used my great great grandfather, the flintlock, to forge a mighty Nation. During the Second World War, my cousins—including, among others, the M1 Garand Rifle, the Thompson submachine gun, and the Browning Automatic Rifle—in the competent hands of our Nation’s troops, helped to defeat two of our most powerful and intractable foes: Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan. I have also assisted and continue to assist our police officers in helping protect our communities from lawless elements.

And, I Am, To The Countless Average, Law-Abiding, Rational, Responsible American Citizens–As The Framers Of The United States Constitution Intended–The Most Effective Means Available Through Which These Citizens Are Able To Preserve And Defend Their Life, Safety, And Well-Being And The Life, Safety, And Well-Being Of Their Families—From Those Ruthless, Terrible, Evil Elements In Society Who Seek To Do Harm.

Going back far earlier in time, my ancestors, the matchlock and wheel lock firearms, gave to the common man the ability to grapple effectively with powerful nobility, who wore formidable suits of armor, wielding massive lances and swords, sitting atop powerful steeds.

There is much to commend me. Unfortunately, history’s revisionists dismiss me out-of-hand, selectively  focusing only on those who have misused me. In recent months, young men who gained access to me, and who should never have gained access to me, have committed monstrous acts. Those monstrous acts have been wrongly ascribed principally to me, rather than to the individuals who have misused me. I am well aware of the horrific acts that deranged young people have done. Their monstrous acts should not have occurred and would not have occurred but for crucial missteps by irresponsible people who failed to properly secure me.

In 2012, a severely mentally unstable young man, (NOT TO BE NAMED), gained access to his mother’s firearms. Had I been able, I would have warned Nancy Lanza, the man’s mother, to properly secure me so that her mentally disturbed son could not gain access to me. She failed to do so. Her irresponsible act in failing to properly secure me led directly to her death at her son’s hands. This sad, deranged young man, (NOT TO BE NAMED), then carried me to a public school, Sandy Hook Elementary School, located in Newtown, Connecticut. In his hands, (NOT TO BE NAMED) used me to kill innocent children and teachers. But for Nancy Lanza’s irresponsible actions, this horrific incident would never have happened and could never have happened. Major media organizations wrongly blamed me for the tragedy.

A similar horrific event occurred, in February of 2018. Another deranged young man, by the initials NC (NOT TO BE NAMED), wrongfully gained access to me, and used me to murder or seriously injure many innocent students and teachers—this time at another public school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, located in Parkland, Florida. Once again media people, reporting on this event, at the urging of those individuals who profess a pathological hatred toward me, blame me for the senseless tragedy, claiming that it is I, rather than this young man, (NOT TO BE NAMED), who is the principal cause of the tragedy.

Legislators, members of the mass media, and members of groups who call for my eradication, fail to realize that it is not I that cause violence. To cause violence I must have the desire to do violence, and once having the desire to do violence, I must then act on that desire. But, I am incapable of desire, and I am incapable of action. People, alone, are capable of desire and people alone are capable of acting on their desires. People are causal agents of harm. I am not a causal agent, but merely an object, a tool. Yet, I am blamed for the evil actions of those who misuse me. On careful reflection, though, it is clear that it is the killer, (NOT TO BE NAMED), 19 years old, and it is those agents of Government who knew or should have known of the danger (NOT TO BE NAMED) posed to the community, who are the principal causes for harm done to others. I, however, am held to account. I, the Gun, am deemed responsible for the myriad failings of people.

Irresponsible, lawless acts, uncorrected, tend to repeat themselves—an endless loop of tragedy occurring ever again. So it is that yet another severely disturbed young man, with the initials DP (NOT TO BE NAMED), went on a shooting rampage at a high school, in Santa Fe, Texas. That tragedy unfolded recently. How did this happen? Quite simply, the young man’s father failed to properly secure me. The father breached a duty of care owed to the community to prevent his son from gaining access to me. That failure led to horrific tragedy.

The pattern is disturbingly familiar, replaying itself over and over again, and each time, the tragedy was preventable, and would have been prevented but for the failure of adults residing in the community, and but for the failure of Governmental authorities to act to thwart the tragedy. And, once again, the blame for the tragedy is laid at my feet. I, who cannot do any act, good or ill, but for an agent who wields me, is ever the scapegoat.

Of course, the vast majority of gun owners are responsible. They treat me with respect. They handle me competently; and they properly secure me, preventing those who must not gain access to me, from doing so. Yet, there are individuals in Government, in industry, and even foreigners who bear a personal grudge against me and who hold me in contempt. And there are groups, comprising individuals whose sole purpose for existence is to eradicate me. These individuals think that by dispossessing millions of average, law-abiding, rational, responsible American citizens of me, the Gun, that violence will stop. It will not stop.

Ban Guns Pawn
The drumbeat continues for my banishment from so-called “civilized” society. Those individuals who detest me argue that violence can be stemmed simply by outlawing me.

Still, the drumbeat continues for my banishment from so-called “civilized” society. Those individuals who detest me argue that violence can be stemmed simply by outlawing me. But, arbitrarily denying the average responsible citizen from owning and possessing me will do nothing to prevent lawless and deranged individuals from doing harm, whether by wielding me, or by wielding or utilizing another object. And, when all is said and done, I am just that—an object, a tool, nothing more. Those who seek to blame me, profane me, debase me, denigrate me, castigate me, would do well to recall a quotation from the classic 1953 Western film, Shane,” where the protagonist offered this sage advice concerning me, as he addressed the wife of a rancher:

“A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it.”

Those who desire to ban me outright would do well to remember that banning me will do nothing to prevent the occurrence of and recurrence of evil acts. Evil cannot be legislated away, even as some people seem to believe that it can be legislated away or would like to believe that evil can be legislated away through the simplistic, implausible, unconscionable, and constitutionally impermissible, unlawful expedient of denying to the average, rational, responsible, law-abiding American citizen the fundamental right to own and possess me. At the end of the day, evil remains, and monstrous acts of violence will, unfortunately, continue to occur because evil exists in the heart of those people who seek to do evil, and there are, unhappily, all too many of those in the world. Evil does not and never did exist in me, “The Gun.”

Eric Holder: ‘No Basis’ for Trump to Investigate FBI Election Meddling

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbarts Big Government.

This makes me wonder what Eric “I won’t prosecute my people” Holder is worried but being uncovered?

Former Attorney General Eric Holder blasted President Donald Trump’s demand to investigate possible federal meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign as “dangerous” and “democracy threatening” in a message posted Monday afternoon.

“Trump demand for DOJ investigation is dangerous/democracy threatening. DOJ response is disappointing,” Holder lamented on Twitter. “There is no basis/no predicate for an inquiry. It’s time to stand for time-honored DOJ independence. That separation from White House is a critical part of our system.”

@EricHolder

Trump demand for DOJ investigation is dangerous/democracy threatening. DOJ response is disappointing.There is no basis/no predicate for an http://inquiry.It ’s time to stand for time honored DOJ independence.That separation from White House is a critical part of our system.

On Sunday, President Trump took to Twitter to demand that the Justice Department probe politically-motivated spying on his campaign.

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” the President said Sunday.

“If anyone did infiltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action,” Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein said after ordering the Justice Department watchdog to probe whether the FBI’s counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign was tainted by political bias.

Trump is meeting with FBI Director Christopher Wray, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and DNI Head Dan Coats at the White House on Monday to discuss the Justice Department’s request.

Holder himself benefited from a breach of “time-honored DOJ independence” while Barack Obama was in the Oval Office. President Obama asserted executive privilege to shield an investigation into then-Attorney General Holder and “Fast & Furious,” a DOJ operation which supplied firearms to Mexican cartels — one of which was used to murderBord Patrol agent Brian Terry. The president’s claim of executive privilege, after lawmakers voted to hold Holder in both civil and criminal contempt of Congress, extended as far as emails between Holder and his wife and mother.

WALSH: A Man Was Sent To Prison For Killing His Unborn Child. He Should Be Released Immediately.

Leave a comment

H/T The Daily Wire.

There is a double standard here this doctor killed his baby with an abortion pill and is going to prison yet he could have killed his baby by aborting it and there would be no crime.

No matter how this baby would have died it is still a crime

If the baby is a human when it is killed by an abortion pill then it is a human when it is killed in an abortion clinic.

“We have declared unborn babies to be unpersons, lifeless clumps of matter, and we should have to face the implications of that idea.”

A former doctor has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for slipping an abortion pill into his pregnant girlfriend’s tea. He will serve three years of the sentence. He should serve zero years. He should not have been sentenced at all.

What he did was monstrous, of course. He killed a human life. He is a murderer. He deserves to be in prison for the rest of his life. But we are not the sort of society that deserves to put people like him in prison. We have not allowed ourselves the legal or moral basis to do so. We have declared unborn babies to be unpersons, lifeless clumps of matter, and we should have to face the implications of that idea.

You cannot commit a homicide if you have not killed a person. And a “fetus” must either be a person or not a person. The consent of the mother is irrelevant to the question of personhood. A thing is what it is, no matter how anyone feels about it. My dog is a dog. He does not become a person because I love him, or a sack of fur because I hate him. The fact that he is mine has no bearing at all on what he is or isn’t.

If the pro-aborts are right in their view, then this man committed vandalism by destroying his girlfriend’s property. At worst, he committed assault by damaging a part of her body. But homicide? No. Homicide by definition is the deliberate and unlawful killing of a person. An unborn child by definition — at least by the demented, unscientific definition that serves as the entire basis for the Roe decision and the pro-abortion cause for the past 40 years — is not a person.

Which is it? We cannot have it both ways. We should not have it both ways. We only want to have it both ways because, in the minds of many people in our culture, it feels so much worse when a man kills his child. All of the bodily autonomy stuff, the women’s rights stuff, the female liberation stuff, no longer serves as an effective cover. All you’re left with is a guy killing a baby. The euphemisms and slogans no longer apply. We reverse ourselves, suddenly, and just for these isolated cases, so that we can preserve our moral indifference.

To hell with that. Literally, to hell with it. If we are going to be a society where babies aren’t people, then let’s be that society. Let’s stop hiding from ourselves. We kill babies here. It is legal to kill babies here. Babies aren’t people here. That’s the ugly truth. If we don’t like it — and we shouldn’t — then let’s change it. If we won’t change it, then let this innocent man out of jail and let him return to his medical practice. He is only a doctor performing a medical procedure, after all. He does not deserve to be persecuted for it.

WATCH: Parkland Activist Pushes Gun Confiscation, Says ‘Serve Your F**king Country’ If You Want To Shoot Semi-Autos

1 Comment

H/T The Daily Wire.

The ignorance of Emma Gonzalez is mind numbing.

On Thursday, Parkland student activist Emma Gonzalez championed gun confiscation at an Education Week forum, adding that anyone who wants to shoot semi-automatic weapons should “go serve your f**king country.”

“It’s just cheaper to take away the guns that aren’t imperative to living in America. You don’t need an AR-15 to protect yourself in bed from a robber at night,” said Gonzalez.

“You don’t need an AR-15 to have fun at a shooting range,” she continued. “Go join the Army if you want to have fun shooting off a weapon, and serve your f**king country. Excuse my language.”

Gonzalez called for the confiscation of all semi-automatic firearms last month, writing in a tweet: “Removing the assault and semi-automatic weapons from our Civilian society, instituting thorough background checks and mandatory waiting periods (and raising the buying age and banning the production of high-capacity magazines) are the ways to stop shootings in America.”
