Preparedness Notes for Friday — June 10, 2022

On June 10, 1967, the Six-Day War ended as Israel and Syria agreed to observe a United Nations-mediated cease-fire.

On Wednesday (June 8, 2022), the U.S. House passed H.R. 7910 — a package of anti-gun laws that includes a ban on the manufacture, import, or sale of any 11+ round magazines or belts, and raises the minimum age for detachable magazine centerfire semi-auto rifles. The package also includes a safe storage law, bans unserialized homemade guns, and codifies Trump’s bump stock ban. (Details, here.) Five turncoat Republicans from eastern states voted for the bill:

  • Fitzpatrick – Pennsylvania
  • Gonzalez – Ohio
  • Jacobs – New York
  • Kinzinger – Illinois
  • Upton – Michigan

Shame on them!

The fight to stop this package of bills now shifts to the U.S. Senate, where they are also discussing so-called “Red Flag” laws. Please contact both of your State’s U.S. Senators, and remind them that a magazine ban is grossly unconstitutional, and that Red Flag laws violate the 2nd Amendment as well as the Due Process protections of the 5th and 14th Amendments. To have a judge summarily yank someone’s Second Amendment rights without notice in absentia is a hideous perversion of our justice system. This is Star Chamber-level jurisdictional evil. If we lose our due process rights to identify and face our accusers, to be present at a proceeding to speak in our own defense, and the presumption of innocence, then our system of justice will be essentially gutted. “Welcome to the gulag, comrade.” Please point out that per Mullane v. Central Hanover Bank (1950), due process requires, at a minimum: A. notice, B. an opportunity to be heard; and C. an impartial tribunal.

Today we present a guest article by . I’ve often linked to his articles and essays. This one was so timely that I asked for his permission to re-post it.

We are seeking entries for Round 101 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. More than $725,000 worth of prizes have been awarded since we started running this contest. Round 101 ends on July 31st, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entry. Remember that there is a 1,500-word minimum, and that articles on practical “how-to” skills for survival have an advantage in the judging.
