Beloved black activist and Trump supporter Bernell Trammell was shot and killed Thursday afternoon in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that 60-year-old Trammell was shot dead about 12:30 p.m. in front of the building that housed his shop on East Wright Street. Inside the shop were signs in support of Black Lives Matter and the reelection of President Trump.

The New York Post reported that Trammell “was known for carrying handmade signs through the streets reading ‘Vote Donald Trump 2020.’”

Local writer Adebisi Agoro said, “He had a lot of different views, but it was his last view that made people be outrageous with him.”

Agoro claimed Trammell’s Trump support angered some to such a degree that someone regularly followed him around to counter the support for Trump.

Trammell ran eXpressions Journal for years, and that included posting videos to a YouTube channel for a time. The videos often centered on calls to repentance:

The Journal Sentinel reported that police had no suspects in the shooting as of Sunday morning.

Republican Party of Wisconsin chair Andrew Hitt is calling for a federal investigation into Trammell’s death. Hitt said, “No American should fear for their personal safety because of where they live or their political affiliation.”

Former President George W. Bush cheered the nationwide protests Tuesday, suggesting they are a show of “strength.”

SFGATE quoted Bush saying, “It is a strength when protesters, protected by responsible law enforcement, march for a better future.”

In his written statement, Bush wrote, “It remains a shocking failure that many African Americans, especially young African American men, are harassed and threatened in their own country.”

Paragraphs later, he wrote, “Many doubt the justice of our country, and with good reason. Black people see the repeated violation of their rights without an urgent and adequate response from American institutions.”

He concluded, “We serve our neighbors best when we try to understand their experience. We love our neighbors as ourselves when we treat them as equals, in both protection and compassion. There is a better way–the way of empathy, and shared commitment, and bold action, and peace rooted in justice. I am confident that together, Americans will choose the better way.”

Over 40 people were shot, ten fatally, over Memorial Weekend in gun-controlled Chicago. Local news reports the shootings and deaths came despite a stay-at-home order.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports an approximate number of shooting victims at 48, fatal and non-fatal combined.

On Sunday, Breitbart News reported four people were killed and 11 others injured in shootings in Chicago during the first 36 hours of Memorial Weekend alone.

The first two fatal shootings of the weekend were discovered around 8 p.m. on Friday. Police found “a 32-year-old male victim…shot to death inside a residence” and a 35-year-old who was shot to death in an unrelated attack at roughly the same time.

The carnage in Chicago occurred even though hundreds of “mediators” had been sent out into hot spots around the city, trying to reduce violence.

Fox 32 reported “a coalition of organizations is sending 370 community-based mediators to 72 locations across 12 neighborhoods in hopes of tamping down Memorial Day weekend gun violence.”

Mike Bloomberg’s guns-for-me-but-not-for-thee approach was rejected by the American people on Super Tuesday, leading him to abandon the race less than 24-hours later.

Gun control for the American people was a cornerstone of Bloomberg’s campaign. But he carried out that campaign while surrounded by armed guards 24/7.

On February 3, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Bloomberg availed himself of good guys with guns for self-protection while pushing to deny Americans access to guns for defense of their own lives.

On March 2, 2020–the day before Super Tuesday–Breitbart News reported Bloomberg was called out by an audience member at a Fox News town hall. The audience member said, “You have an armed security detail that is likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines you seek to ban the common citizen from owning. Does your life matter more than mine or my family’s?”

Bloomberg responded by admitting his personal use of good guys with guns, and suggested that his use of guns is justified because he has higher public profile than the common man. On Super Tuesday, the vast majority of voters rejected Bloomberg.

During a Wednesday night CNN town hall, Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden stressed the Second Amendment is not “absolute.”

He made this point by contending, “no amendment is absolute.” He then argued limitations on First and Second Amendments in particular, citing curtailments on speech and firearms.

Breitbart News quoted Biden saying, “From the very beginning, the Founders said, ‘Not everyone is able to have a gun and you can’t have any weapon you want.’” He did not point a document in which actually showed the Founders making such a statement.

He followed that statement by taking to social media:

During a Monday night campaign speech Biden assured firearm manufacturers he was gunning for them, making clear he wants to open them up to lawsuits over the criminal misuse of their products. Breitbart News reported Biden referenced gun manufacturers and said, “I’m going to take you down.”

Virginia House Delegate Chris Hurst (D) blew a .085 on a blood-alcohol breathalyzer Saturday night but was let off with a warning.

10 WAVY reported the incident, noting “Christiansburg officials [said] Montgomery Democrat Chris Hurst was stopped at about 2 a.m. on Sunday and blew a result of .085, just above the legal limit.”

The officer who pulled Hurst over, Lt. Stephen Swecker, noticed the lawmaker’s eyes were allegedly “red” and there was “the odor of alcohol” coming from the car.

Swecker indicated he allowed Hurst to go after the preliminary .085 blood-alcohol reading because he believed Hurst’s blood-alcohol levels would have been below the legal limit by the time they reached the station for a formal test.

On Wednesday Hurst used a Facebook post to admit he made a “grave mistake.

He wrote:

I was pulled over by an officer with Christiansburg Police. After questioning my ability to drive, he asked for me to step out of the car and submit to a series of field sobriety tests. I fully complied and respected the officer’s request and completed those tests, including a breathalyzer test. My blood alcohol content was shown to be .085%. That is over the legal limit and I should not have been drinking and driving. My girlfriend also submitted to a breathalyzer test. She was under the legal limit and we were both told by the officer that we were free to go, providing that she drive us home.

Hurst added:

This experience has humbled me in a profound way, particularly hearing from so many who have been personally impacted by losing loved ones to drunk driving. While I knew the dangers of drinking and driving ahead of time, I displayed poor judgement and made a mistake. For so many, however, one mistake can mean the death of someone they love. I will take that fact with me in the future with renewed appreciation and respect. To those I have let down, I am deeply sorry. I will spend the remainder of my time in office working diligently to advocate for our community and regain any trust that I have lost.

Governor Jim Justice (R) on Tuesday invited Virginia counties weighed down by Democrat gun control to secede from the Old Dominion and become part of West Virginia.

WSET reports Justice referenced West Virginia’s emergence as a state in 1863, the result of seceding from overreaching Virginia Democrats at the time, and made clear the invitation for counties to secede which was extended then remains standing today.

During a joint press conference with Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Justice said, “A long time ago, the infringement of fundamental values” led to the formation of West Virginia. This point comes as Virginia Democrats continue their focused attack on Second Amendment rights; it comes as more than 100 local governments in Virginia have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries in the face of infringement on fundamental gun rights.

Justice added, “West Virginia is an incredible state…If you’re not truly happy with where you are, we stand with open arms to take you from Virginia or wherever you may be. We stand strongly behind the Second Amendment, we stand strongly behind the unborn.”

On January 15, 2020, Breitbart News reported West Virginia lawmakers were pushing a resolution to allow Virginia counties to join the state.

The resolution, HRC 8, said in part:

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitution.

The resolution was designed to secure a Special Session of state legislators to plan “a special election to provide for the approval of the admission, or, the rejection of such admission, of such county or independent city.”

The House of Delegates’ Public Safety Committee on Friday passed a firearm store law and a bill limiting the number of handguns Virginians can purchase, among other gun controls.

WHSV reports the gun controls, “almost all… passed on a 13-9 party line vote,” with the Democrats voting for them and Republicans against.

Universal background checks were among the controls passed. Such checks criminalize a neighbor who sells a five-shot revolver to a lifelong neighbor without first getting government permission via a background check. While making criminals out of the law-abiding, they do nothing to stop gang members and street criminals from selling stolen guns to one another in dark alleys, drug houses, and parking lots.

Del. Mark Levine (D-45th Dist.) boasted the committee also passed a bill allowing local municipalities to enact gun bans for certain areas whether the state legislature enacts such bans or not. The bill particularly allows local municipalities to ban concealed carry in parks and public buildings. In other words, the bill, should it pass, would allow local municipalities to ban carry by those who have gone through the legal process of acquiring a license to carry for self-defense.

Ironically, the May 31, 2019, Virginia Beach shooting occurred in a building where employees were banned from carrying guns for self-defense. The Crime Prevention Research Center reported: “Virginia Beach bans employees from being able to carry guns. In addition, while it was indeed possible for a civilian to enter the ‘Operations Building’ where the attack occurred, the ‘Operations Building,’ as its name suggests, was a building where virtually only employees would be in.”

But one city employee ignored the ban, carrying in two .45 caliber handguns into the gun free area in order and inflicting death on the unarmed.

President Donald Trump tweeted about the White Settlement, Texas, church shooting on Monday night, noting that armed “heroes” saved lives.

On December 29, 2019, Breitbart News reported that a gunman opened fire in church only to be killed by a good guy with gun. That good guy turned out to be Jack Wilson, a gun range owner who is also part of the church security team.

The New York Times reports that multiple other congregants also drew their guns, among them a female parishioner who “calmly guided terrified churchgoers to safety as the pastor crawled down from the pulpit on all fours.”

President Trump reacted to the actions of the armed parishioners by tweeting:

Following the November 5, 2017, Sutherland Springs, Texas, church shooting, Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed legislation allowing concealed carriers to be armed in church for self-defense. In September, during a campaign stop in Iowa, Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden referenced the Texas law allowing armed parishioners and called it “irrational.”

Trump praised armed parishioners for taking out Sunday’s attacker.
