Gun Rights

Freedom Convoy: Could Trudeau-Style Crackdowns on the 2A Happen Here?



Before you say “The Bill of Rights prevents that,” have a look at what our own anti-gun Congress-critters are doing.

All psychologists know that the best way to find out how someone really feels about their own circumstances is to ask them how they would feel if it were happening to someone else. All Second Amendment supporters know that American anti-gun legislators dream day and night of imposing Canada-style rules about firearms upon Americans. Those same anti-gunners are deeply envious of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s ability to suspend the rights of his citizens. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has the proof of just what America’s anti-gunners have in mind … and they’re moving to prevent that. Check out this excellent piece from NSSF’s Joe Bartozzi, and let us know what you think in the comments!



By Joe Bartozzi

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau showed law-abiding gun owners in his nation that he’s willing to become a tyrant in a teapot to seize guns.

Prime Minister Trudeau invoked Canada’s Emergency Act when truckers descended on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario to protest the country’s strict COVID-19 vaccine requirements for border crossing and other restrictions. Called the “Freedom Convoy,” the protesters shut down the area outside of Canada’s Parliament and key trade route crossings into the United States.

Instead of meeting with protest organizers to hear their grievances, Prime Minister Trudeau hid in an “undisclosed location” and later verbally attacked his fellow countrymen as Nazis.” His unprecedented use of the Emergencies Act, invoked without Parliament approval or court order, allowed him to exercise unchecked authority to trample on the rights of Canadians for 30 days. It was the first time the act was invoked since it was passed in 1988.

In essence, he made subjects of his citizens. Worse, he revealed there’s no tactic he won’t resort to when it comes to pressing his agenda. That is an ominous sign as Canadians face a looming gun confiscation.


Canadian gun owners are facing a looming April 30 deadline to turn over nine specific types of firearms, all AR-15s, AR-10s and any variants, any firearm with a muzzle energy greater than 10,000 Joules or any firearm with a bore greater than 20 mm. Firearms are being seized by the Canadian government under a forced “buyback” scheme, which in itself is an oxymoron, since the Canadian Government didn’t buy them in the first place.

As of Christmas, over 99.8 percent of Canadian gun owners rejected Prime Minister Trudeau’s unilateral edict to hand over their guns. His reaction to truckers who didn’t listen to his edicts doesn’t bode well for those out of compliance on May 1.

Prime Minister Trudeau’s crackdown wasn’t just police arresting protesters or hauling away trucks. He roped in banks to force the measure. When he invoked the Emergencies Act, that compelled banks, investment firms, credit unions, loan companies, securities dealers, fundraising platforms, insurance companies and fraternal benefit societies to search their databases for those protesting and “freeze their accounts and report it to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police or Canada’s intelligence service, the regulations say. Any suspicious transactions must also be reported to the country’s anti-money-laundering agency, known as Fintrac,” according to a Fortune report. Topping it off, the Canadian government protected those financial entities from lawsuits.

Prime Minister Trudeau used the authority of the Canadian government to hold the money of private citizens protesting for what they perceived as government overreach into their bodily rights. It begs the question, what is in store when Canadians refuse to bend the knee to the tyrant trying to confiscate their guns?

Could It Happen Here?

Those observing from the United States might believe that no such move could occur in the United States. Surely there are strong civil liberty protections. That would be a foolish assumption. Members of President Joe Biden’s Cabinet cheered Prime Minister Trudeau’s unprecedented power grab.

“Two of Biden’s Cabinet officials, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, pressed their Canadian counterparts to use federal powers to bring an end to the blockade at the bridges before they successfully did so on Sunday,” The Hill reported during the crisis.

Democratic Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego publicly called for the government to seize and redistribute privately-owned trucks of American truckers that are participating in their own Freedom Convoy headed to Washington, D.C.

“Perfect time to impound and give the trucks to small trucking companies looking to expand their business,” Rep. Gallego tweeted in response to the following news.

It’s Already Happening

The truth is banks are already doing the dirty work of antigun politicians in America. Corporate banks adopted gun control policies to deny business to firearm-related companies unless they implement certain gun control measures, including trampling on Constitutional rights.

That’s why NSSF is working with Congress and state legislatures to introduce laws that will protect firearm businesses from “woke” political agendas that threaten their ability to compete in the marketplace. NSSF is working to pass the Fair Access to Banking Act, introduced in the U.S. Senate by Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) as S. 563 and by Congressman Andy Barr (R-Ky.) as H.R. 1729. In the state legislatures, Texas passed the Firearm Industry Nondiscrimination (FIND) Act last year, which allows Texas the freedom to choose with whom they conduct business, just as the banks are free to choose their customers. Banks need only to certify that they hold no discriminatory policies against firearm businesses, which, of course, are a Constitutionally-protected industry. Similar legislation is pending in several other states, including Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma and West Virginia.

Those with politically-driven agendas are showing there are no limits to what they will do when it comes to eliminating gun rights or the gun industry. The notion that government authorities would seize funds or personal property to advance their goals was the stuff of fiction. Today, it’s an unfortunate reality.

    “The Bill of Rights prevents that,”

    Hell, in FLORIDA, RIGHT NOW, it is ILLEGAL to “bear arms” OPENLY (misdemeanor) AND it is ILLEGAL to “bear arms” CONCEALED (felony).

    Even funnier? If you get CAUGHT and CONVICTED of concealed carrying, you “LOSE” the right that you DIDN’T HAVE in the first place via your new “status” as a “prohibited felon”!

    Politicians might try. In addition to the 2nd Amendment there is also this – The Declaration of Independence says ‘That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles sand organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.’ I honestly think the politicians want to put this to the test because they would invariably lose.

      These far leftist power crazed politicians lay in bed at night, masterbating about way to pass more gun control.

      Reading this article, people say it couldn’t happen here. Look at states like commiefornia, New Jersey, Illinois, New York and others.. They have passed all kinds of gun control laws and still want more.

      In commie- Rhode island, politicians there are working on a bill to require gun owners purchasing reloading equipment to fill out forms, get a background check and wait 7 days!
      They no longer claim they are going after criminals, now they want to restrict law abiding citizens.
      Commie Rhode island politicians want to ban all magazines over 10 rounds and make it a felony to own one with a year in prison! This sounds more like Russia or North Korea, not America. Perhaps these power crazed politicians should move the hell out of America and go to “workers paradise” like Cuba, North Korea and Russia.

      Russia attacks and invades the Ukraine. The Ukraine government hands out AK-47’S to it’s citizens to fight off Russians.

      Biden and Beto say ” hell yeah, were going to take away your AR-15’S and AK-47’S”

      I think if Russia ever invades the USA, Biden and Beto would welcome them as their savior’s.

      AOC and the squad want to repeal the 2nd amendment.
      AOC and the squad want to replace the Constitution and Bill of Rights with something out of Castro and Stalin handbook and turn America into a Communist “workers paradise!”
      AOC and the squad want to replace the American flag too.

      There are never enough gun laws for far leftist, mentally unstable, Satan worshipping, power crazed politicians.

      Why is it that back in the 1950’s, one could walk into a hardware store, gun shop or mail order all kinds of firearms with no background check, no federal forms to fill out, and no waiting period and crime was much lower than today. I wrote that to my states senator and he replied that they need more gun control.

      Canada’s dictator is banning not only semi autos, but African hunting rifles. Why is that? He said they are too powerful for people to own. Huh? Dictator will always come up with nonsense to justify their wanting to ban guns
      More guns means more safer society.

      In Haiti, drug gangs with AK-47’s, control the docks and warehouse’s. Nothing moves unless they approve and are paid off. Now these same Haitians are coming to America to rob, rape and murder Americans and the administration welcomes them.

      The administration is having sections of the border wall taken down and sold off for scrap. This allows the cartels, M13 gang members, M18 gang members, drug dealers, criminals, murderers, terrorists, spies felons and prostitutes to cross the border and the administration welcomes them and the crime they bring.

      The Central America countries and South America countries are emptying out their jails and prisons and sending thousands of prisoners and convicts to America and the administration welcomes them and the crime that they bring.

      These gun banning groups and hunting banning groups are run and funded by Micheal Bloomberg, George Soros, the Chinese government, the U.N., Russia, North Korea, and Mexico.

      Remember that a country cannot be taken over by foreign country if it’s citizens all own firearms.

      China wants Australia, New Zealand, and America.
      China is buying up American farmland and ranch land and so is Saudi Arabia.

      During WW2 Germany and Japan had plans to invade the east coast and west coast of America. They also wanted Mexico to invade the southern states and promised Mexico they would give them Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. But these countries were afraid of all the Americans who owned firearms and would fight them off. Now they are joining up to ban firearms in America.

      There are 14 state attorneys that have joined Mexico in it’s lawsuit against American gun companies. These state attorneys and the Brady bunch are traitors to America and should be placed in prison.

      Protect and support your right to keep and own all types of firearms, and accessories. Don’t allow the evil, far leftist, Satan worshipping, power crazed politicians to restrict and ban firearms in America.

      Buy more guns, ammo, magazines and accessories now before it’s too late!

        This administration left BILLIONS in high-grade military weapons behind in Afghanistan, AND is championing the provision of similar weaponry to CIVILIANS in UKRAINE fighting on behalf of a pro-abortion, anti-gun, globalist-installed leader!

        MEANWHILE, we can’t have a FOREGRIP on a PISTOL because it might “increase our ability to control it” and thus “enhance accuracy”… THINK ABOUT THAT.

          Keep spreading the word about this contrived war. It is indeed yet another scam and so many “patriots” are still falling for the lies the MSM are pumping out.

      People did for Covid. The government will pull another Sandy Hook or Las Vegas type attack to get people clamoring for gun control.

        The funniest thing though… millions upon millions of gun sales to new owners in both 2020 and 2021. They can try what they want (and they will), but no one will give them up.

    I believe we are heading for a civil war. Any type of gun confiscation will definitely make it begin. In a Civil War first you kill the politicians that propose such nonsense then you kill the morons who vote for them ( Democrats) Read history people that is where we are heading.

        Purge the WH and Congress. But first we must arrest George Soros. He is the most disposable of the bunch.

    Could? All kinds of things have already happened here because both the citizens and many politicians have been too lukewarm about what their options are, their rights, their authority. They have allowed themselves to be confused and restrained from action by a corrupt and complicit media. They’d best stop getting their info from cnn and put their Patrick Henry pants on.

    The communists that have been shoved down our throats by deception, and rampant VOTER FRAUD, in order to attempt to take over this country, and will not rest until every law-abiding LEGAL American citizen is disarmed for easy takeover.
    A LEGALLY ARMED populace are considered to be CITIZENS…. An UNARMED populace are considered “subjects” that TYRANTS are then free to use, abuse, TAX and REGULATE to death, or “ELIMINATE ANY and all they see fit to. WAKE UP!

      It’s time to s**t or get off the pot! A second revolution for independence is needed and long over due. Democrat Politicians, the Democratic Party, RINOs, and “sit on their hands Americans”, who allow America to be handed over to the Forces of Evil, need to be eliminated, by force if necessary. We need to return to our traditions of freedom for all, duty to God and Country, and peoples’ rights as defined by our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Keep your powder dry!!!
