SAF: ATF Federal Firearm License revocations up a staggering 500%

In the years before the Biden-Harris administration took over the White House, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives usually revoked an average of 40 Federal Firearm Licenses (FFLs) per year. But, in the 11 months since Joe Biden declared war on “rogue gun dealers,” the ATF has revoked 273 FFLs – an increase of more than 500%. However, rather than targeting the true rogues, Biden’s ATF is revoking FFLs for the most minor of paperwork errors, which were never a concern for the ATF until Biden weaponized the agency.

“This has nothing to do with the ATF and everything to do with the DOJ,” said John Clark of FFL Consultants. Clark is a firearm industry expert who said the ATF announced the number of revocations at a recent Firearm Industry Conference.

“The vast majority of the ATF don’t like this any more than the industry does,” he said. “It’s Biden.”

Report: CDC purchased cell phone data to monitor lockdowns and compliance

ATLANTA, GA – According to documents from 2021 obtained by a FOIA request from Vice’s Motherboard, the CDC purchased location data gleaned from millions of cell phones to track movement of persons, in order to monitor compliance with COVID-19 regulations.

Vice reports that the CDC paid $420,000 for access to data from SafeGraph, a “highly controversial data broker.” In fact, in the initial stages of the coronavirus pandemic, SafeGraph actually provided data to the CDC for free.

Good news and bad news, both can spark positive change

From Downsize DC:

Let good news inspire you that things can change for the better…

Good news #1: A federal jury has spanked the FBI for instigating crimes they claimed to fight. https://reason.com/2022/04/13/a-federal-jury-delivers-a-rebuke-of-fbi-en...

What will you do about cops who murder dogs?

Sadly, there continue to be instances of cops terrorizing and harming the people they supposedly serve. This example is truly heartbreaking…

Surely, you’ve had the experience of having a dog approach you. It can be scary if the dog is alone, with no human to manage it. But it’s a lot less scary if its guardian is there. You certainly wouldn’t draw a gun and pump multiple shots into it. Yet that’s what happened in Inkster, Michigan to Bradley Brock and his three-year-old support dog, Moose.

The dog was clearly friendly, but the cop shot him anyway. Multiple times. You can see the event on video, if you have the stomach for it.

West Virginia’s Crime Rates Decline After State Adopts Constitutional Carry Law

New data reveals that West Virginia’s decision to adopt a constitutional carry law led to a decrease in crime.

In 2016, the state legislature repealed the requirement that adult residents obtain a concealed carry permit for their guns. West Virginians are able to carry a firearm without a state-issued license. They only need to be over the age of 18 without any prohibition to possess firearms either federally or in any state in the union.

FBI abuses ‘no-fly list’ to infringe on Second Amendment rights

Remember all the calls by Democrats to ban people on the FBI’s terror watch list from buying guns? Well, it turns out that those proposals would have affected nearly 2 million people. Since the Transportation Security Administration announced in January that it was considering adding Jan. 6th Capitol protesters to the U.S. No Fly List, it is little wonder that the list has grown so long.

Cops responding to ShotSpotter's AI alerts rarely find evidence of gun crime, says Chicago watchdog

Police responding to ShotSpotter's AI-generated alerts of gunfire find evidence of actual gun-related crime only about one time in ten, a Chicago public watchdog has found.

The California biz uses machine-learning algorithms to determine whether loud bangs caught by microphones deployed across more than 100 US cities are gunshots or not. If a shot is identified, the location of the noise is triangulated and sent to the police as an immediate, real-time alert, and reports are later compiled for prosecutors for use in court cases.

ShotSpotter is under the microscope right now because a 65-year-old man spent almost a year behind bars awaiting trial for murder – and the primary evidence against him was a disputed ShotSpotter report of a gunshot.

The ACLU Claims the Second Amendment Is Racist, But Gun Control Has the Real Record on Systemic Oppression

The ACLU fired shots on Twitter last month, claiming that the Second Amendment is “racist” alongside an article and podcast episode that posed the question “Do Black People Have the Right to Bear Arms?”

The article, written by Ines Santos, claimed that gun violence in America — which she labeled an “epidemic” caused by widespread “vigilante” firearm ownership — negatively impacts black people because of racially discriminatory policing. “What is absent in the intense debates on gun rights in America is the intrinsic anti-blackness of the unequal enforcement of gun laws,” she wrote.
