President Joe Biden reportedly won’t rule out using executive orders to crackdown on Americans’ constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights.
The revelation was made during a White House press conference on Tuesday in response to a statement that Biden put out last week calling for banning semi-automatic firearms in addition to other gun control measures.

It is quite ironic that many of those that are always telling us that we need “diversity” in our society are also some of the strongest voices against a “diversity of viewpoints” on social media. The founders of this nation wanted to make sure that nobody would ever take the right to freedom of speech away from us, and that is why it was enshrined in the Bill of Rights.
Unfortunately, courts have greatly eroded that right over the last several decades, and now we are facing an all-out assault on freedom of speech that is unlike anything that we have ever seen before. And once freedom of speech is completely gone, all of our other rights will soon follow, because there will no longer be any way to defend them.
When the United States was established, government was really the only major threat to free speech. In early America, corporations were severely limited in size and scope, and that is because our founders were determined not to let them get too big or too powerful.
Our founders knew that enormous concentrations of money and power would be great threats to freedom, and that has definitely turned out to be the case.In the old days, if you wanted to express yourself you could grab a soapbox and head down to a local street corner. The reason why we use the term “marketplace of ideas” today is because people literally used to gather in marketplaces and town squares and exchange ideas with one another.
In our time, the Internet has become the place where we all gather to exchange ideas, but unfortunately control of all of the most important gathering spaces is in the hands of a very small group of colossal tech corporations.
When Facebook, Twitter and others were first growing, they generally allowed people to say pretty much what they wanted to say, and information flowed pretty freely.
But censorship has escalated dramatically over the past four years, and it reached a crescendo the other day when Twitter announced that it would be permanently suspending President Trump’s account.
How would our founders feel about that?
As a born-again Spirit filled believer I understand what it means to stand and walk in faith. I understand that we have the power to come against principalities and power according to Ephesians 6:10-13. I also know that Jesus said in Mark 11 that we could speak to the mountain and it would be removed into the sea.
I am also a man that lives in the real world, and for whatever reason sometimes our prayers do not work. Is it not in the perfect will of God? Is it double mindedness? I don’t know. Saying all that I truly hope that the videos and words sent to me from good and Godly people come true, I pray everyday that God would move heaven and earth to accomplish our prayers for this nation. Normal Americans are appalled at what the ruling class politicians are attempting to do. Stolen election and stifling the 1st Amendment is truly scary. Lockdowns, shut downs, forced vaccinations and thought police roaming the internet taking away our fought for freedoms. That is enough to keep one awake at night. What scares me the most is that God is sovereign and His will trumps (no pun intended) ours. If our hope is not realized, we need to understand we are in a battle for our very lives and way of life. It will be a Warring Church that leads us out of this chaos we seem headed for. To God be the glory. Either way…
We stand with Christ and His Word.
