When it comes to gun control proponents, we all know they fight for violations against the 2nd amendment daily. They want bans, they want stiff penalties for violating bans and laws, and most of all, they want to make sure laws are enforced. Let’s take a look at a MDA event that happened on 10/19/19 in New Jersey:
On Saturday, October 19, 2019, Moms Demand Action, an organization that claims they advocate for “firearm safety” and “common sense gun laws,” held a “Firearms 101 Presentation” with guest speaker Scott Pappalardo. Their website lists the event description as: “Guest speaker Scott Pappalardo, a gun owner and volunteer leader in Moms Demand Action, presents firearms basics–how they work, how they are classified and how the permitting process works in NJ and in other states across the country. Our intention is to prepare non-gun owning volunteers to have knowledgeable conversations about gun violence prevention with gun owners they meet at tables or events…or in their everyday lives.”
At the meeting it appears that several New Jersey laws were violated. The guest speaker, Scott Pappalardo, possessed several “large-capacity” magazines, unserialized 80% AR15 lower receivers, and the parts and tools to complete the lower receivers to functioning AR-15 rifles, and possessed a large bayonet.
Please click the link to source article for more information including the laws he broke and the penalties for them. Scott, as a resident of NY and visiting NJ committed multiple crimes of both his home state and the state he was visiting. This is no different than a person transporting marijuana from a state where it is legal to a state it is illegal in. Will anything be done about it? Will he face charges (the very penalties his group advocates for)? No, probably not. Gun control laws don’t apply to people like him. After all, it’s meant as a political weapon to disarm minorities and political opposition, not for safety. The governments of both states will look the other way, as they are allies of Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action.
Perhaps this can be used as an example in court for anyone criminally charged with possession of the same items in either state ? Why is one person allowed to have them while others aren’t? Is it ok to posses if you’re part of Everytown/Moms Demand Action and not ok if you’re a non-member? Sounds like a civil rights violation to me......
