There’s a groundswell of attacks taking place across America.  There are attacks against the freedom of speech, the free exercise of religion, attacks on morality, on women’s sports, privacy, and the list goes on.  

This broadcast looked at the attack on the 2nd Amendment, a short amendment that has great meaning:  

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

This is part of the Bill of Rights, adopted 231 years ago yesterday, June 15th of 1790.

Joining Jim with more on this attack was Michael Hammond.  Michael is legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America.

The program began with conversation concerning the meeting between President Joe Biden and Russia’s Vladimir Putin, moving from there to the main topic concerning attacks on the 2nd Amendment.  The good news on the 2nd Amendment front is that through the efforts of Gun Owners of America and Christians to preserve the filibuster, so far this has kept most of what President Biden wants to do from ever happening.

The remainder of this broadcast covered numerous points related to 2nd Amendment attacks including:

  • A new rule being proposed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) that is targeting homemade firearms.
  • The pistol brace—A piece of plastic and foam rubber used to stabilize a hand gun allowing the user to fire more accurately.
  • Another Department of Justice move would allow an individual to go to a judge based upon how they feel or think and have guns removed from a targeted individual (red flag law).  This would not require a crime to have been committed and no requirement that a threat of harm was communicated.
  • Gun Owners of America and their class action lawsuit against the City of Philadelphia.
  • In San Jose, California, the mayor has been calling on the city council to impose new annual fees and mandatory insurance requirements on legal gun owners.
