When Two Year Old “News” is Kept From Us by the media : Judge Blocks ‘High Capacity’ Mag Ban to Prevent Criminalization of Law-Abiding Californians

This is not new, in fact I wrote about it yesterday as if it was. (Source)

Sorry media you can’t have it both ways!

This proves one thing without any doubt.

The article that originally appeared two years ago, below, was shielded from up because it didn’t go with the agenda of those who believe they can shape our thinking.

This included FOX News.

On June 29 — two days before California’s “high capacity” magazine ban was set to take effect — U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez blocked the ban to prevent “otherwise law-abiding” citizens from being criminalized.

Benitez ruled that the ban takes away Second Amendment rights “and amounts to the government taking people’s private property without compensation.”

This ruling went to the 9th District Court of Appeals where Judge Benitez ruling was upheld, not once but twice.

 

According to ABC News, Benitez ruled, “If this injunction does not issue, hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of otherwise law-abiding citizens will have an untenable choice: become an outlaw or dispossess one’s self of lawfully acquired property.”

And while the ban was approved by a majority of California voters, Benitez noted, “[The] constitution is a shield from the tyranny of the majority.”

While Benitez’s ruling stalled the ban, the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence’s Ari Freilich expressed confidence that the ban will eventually be enforced. He said, “Unfortunately this law will be delayed but we are confident it will go into effect, and soon.”

Freilich did not address the fact that the high-profile shooting in Santa Barbara — May 23, 2014 — was carried out with “standard” magazines of 10 rounds. Nor did he address the fact that one of California’s most recent high-profile shootings — the Fresno attack — was carried out with a .357 magnum revolver, a gun which is in no way covered by magazine limitations.

Chuck Michel — attorney for the NRA and the California Rifle & Pistol Association — opined on Benitez’s decision to halt the “high capacity” magazine ban.

He said, “This court recognized that the Second Amendment is not a second-class right and that law-abiding gun owners have the right to own these magazines to defend themselves and their families.”

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence commented on the District Judge’s decision to halt the “high capacity” magazine ban by pointing to the high-profile shootings at Orlando Pulse (June 12, 2016) and San Bernardino (December 2, 2015).

The Brady Campaign did not mention that both venues were gun-free zones. In other words, law-abiding would-be victims were mandated to be disarmed, therefore defenseless.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

  1. In 2005 when I was 66, a 24 year old MS-13 member, high on meth, was running from police. He ditched them and ran in my back door. I managed to run him back out with a teeny little S&W Airweight pistol. It only holds 5 bullets. If he had brought 6 more gang members with him, I’d have LOVED to have an “ASSAULT RIFLE!” Maybe even a bump stock! As it was, I ended up with 17 cops in my yard and the Police Chief standing across the street with all of my neighbors. (He lived in the next block, was home for lunch when it happened.) Needless to say- – NOBODY LOVES COPS MORE THAN I DO!! All’s well that ends well! HE left in the ambulance and I DID NOT! I vote against ANY FORM of GUN CONTROL!
