NFL in Death Spiral—San Fran 49’s Spend $$ on Gun Control—Not Better Players

Did you really think the politicization of the NFL starts and stops with the taking of a knee at the sounds of the national Anthem you are wrong.  Now the San Fran 49’ers are acting as a Democrat Party PAC—giving $500,000 to promote gun control.

“According to ESPN, the 49ers presented the gun control pledge as part of creating a “more understanding and safer America.” The $500,000 will also be used to push a ban on bump stocks and armor-piercing bullets.

The ban on armor-piercing bullets is somewhat ambiguous, but appears similar to a ban which was unsuccessfully pushed by the Obama administration in 2015. The Obama-era actually targeted bullets that would have to be re-categorized as armor piercing in order to be banned.

Actually the bump stock WAS illegal, until Barack Obama, as part of his real legacy, legalized them.  So, if policy matters, the Vegas massacre could and should be laid at the feet of Barack Obama—now a football team , losing games and revenues has decided to concentrate on politics instead of scouting reports.  If you love Antifa, you will love the 49’ers.

San Francisco 49ers Pledge $500,000 to Push Suppressor Ban, Other Gun Control Measures

Breitbart, 10/26/17  by AWR Hawkins

The San Francisco 49ers pledged $500,000 Thursday to secure a suppressor ban and other gun controls.

The push comes in the weeks after the Las Vegas attack. Suppressors were not used in that attack, but the 49ers are dedicated to banning the devices anyway.

According to ESPN, the 49ers presented the gun control pledge as part of creating a “more understanding and safer America.” The $500,000 will also be used to push a ban on bump stocks and armor-piercing bullets.

The ban on armor-piercing bullets is somewhat ambiguous, but appears similar to a ban which was unsuccessfully pushed by the Obama administration in 2015. The Obama-era actually targeted bullets that would have to be re-categorized as armor piercing in order to be banned.

On February 15, 2015, Breitbart News reported that the Obama-era push was directed toward M855 rounds for the AR-15. The rounds are fully legal under the auspices of the Gun Control Act of 1968, which bans handgun ammunition categorized as armor piercing. The Obama ATF attempted to apply the ban on handgun ammo to rifle ammo as well, even though the M855 round was one of the most popular AR-15 rounds for sporting purposes at the time. And it was precisely because of the round’s popularity that the NRA-ILA described the attempted ban as “a move clearly intended by the Obama administration to repress the acquisition, ownership, and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles.”

It appears the 49ers are ready to pick up where Obama left off, and they are joined by the Los Angeles Police Protective League, an LAPD union, in so doing. On October 26 Breitbart News reported that the Los Angeles Police Protective League is pushing for a ban on suppressors, armor-piercing ammunition, and bump stocks.

Suppressors are legal in over 40 states and are widely owned. Legislation to loosen the cumbersome acquisition process for the devices was shelved by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) two days after the Las Vegas attack, which happened to be one day after Hillary Clinton criticized suppressors.

  1. It is amazing to see just how stupid are the multi-millionaires who have, in every case, fleeced the people to build Romanesque stadia for the purpose of watching mostly “black” men literally beat their brains out to get a melon-shaped “ball” from one end of a field to other several times during a very long hour, or two, with all screaming their heads off, drunk on beer, breaking out in fist fights, screaming themselves hoarse after spending $200 for tickets, parking and toys for the event manage to make an even bigger mess of more lives by not seeing the obvious. We have collapsed and it is only a short time before cannibalism returns.

    Google “Two Minute Conservative ” for more.

    I wanted to find a new team anyway…San Fran 49’ers are anti-gun and anti NRA I no longer support them

    • Not many of the players just management ignorance…..I am not going to include the NFL in my entertainment agenda this year..If I don’t see change then they will no longer be on my schedule…..

  3. Looks like the PC crowd has demonstrated it has the NFL by the guchels and also intends to rape. pillage and defile the game of football…This will prove again…YOU CANNOT FIX STUPID…..

  4. Emanuelle Goldstein says

    I was hoping the kneeling protest would end, and we’d all get back to enjoying the game of football. Apparently not. I just took the scissors and cut up all my 49ers gear. Yeah, even the sweatshirt that read “Red and Gold Till I’m Dead and Cold.” Never again. The Yorks and NFL can kiss me goodbye. “2nd Amendment Uphold Till I’m Dead and Cold.”

  5. I NEVER thought I would stop watching movies. I NEVER thought I would cancel my newspaper after 40 years. I NEVER thought I would quit watching football. But I have.

  6. The 49ers and the entire NFL for that matter have more to worry about then screwing with the constitution and the 2nd amendment. The team sucks, cant win a game . Couldn’t beat a good high school team from Texas. The NFL is dying right before our eyes. I don’t bother to watch the 49ers or any other team for that matter. They players show disrespect for my country, my flag, my anthem and me. So to hell with them. Most of my friends and acquaintances feel the same way. Even old die hard fans that have watched or attended games for 20-30 + years are finding other things to do. I actually find it nice to get the time back and do other things , do things with friends, family get outside, go fishin , shooting or just have fun. I and others have found it to be a pleasant surprise. All these years we have been bombarded with advertising and propaganda, it seemed like a requirement to watch the NFL Sunday, Monday and then Thursday games. Its not and no amount of BS excuses or advertising is going to change it. I am NOT going to return to past habits of watching or attending NFL games. Looks like others are discovering the same thing, attendance is down, viewers leaving the TV screen,ratings down. The TV contracts , advertising money and overall revenue going down. Soon the advertisers ae going to want to renegotiate contracts. I think the NFL screwed the pooch and is dying before our eyes. Who wants to watch this crap anymore?, Of course the NFL will throw millions at getting their viewers (FANS) back, but for my part I’m done with them. There are much better things to do with my time.

  7. One of the reasons for the 49ers absolutely abysmal season is that so many of their players are taking a knee during the national anthem they can’t manage to stand up after the game starts. Boycott’m all on Nov 12th.

  8. Football is fun to play –not to watch- –I would not waste my days watching thugs play what they call football–full of cheaters –bet a lot of games are fixed just like wrestling–what the idiots do on that field is no different than rollerball and the people who support them are –well –pity the fools

  9. True Teacher says

    You make valid points. And when athletes or actors or businessmen make so much money that they suddenly become spokesmen in the field of politics–this is so baffling. I mean, why should I listen to LeBron on any political matter? Or his colleague, Curry? Or Babs Streisand? None of these people have the wisdom or the brains, or knowledge of history and government, they just have huge bank accounts and opinions.

    This is why I donate money to the Hillsdale College Charter School Initiative, even though I teach public school. We can make the citizenry see through these people’s emotion based screeds and return to rational discourse when the population at large knows how to think.

  10. The Buying of Indulgences, by those who declaim the history of the Church. Hypocrisy much?

  11. grayswindir says

    Yeah, join in with the government in attacking my constitutional rights, that will make me a fan.

    In related news, Brown just signed into law removing mandatory enhanced sentencing for criminals who use guns in the commission of their crimes.

    That’s right, while pushing gun control, they’ve eliminated the mandatory penalties for you know, using them in crimes. That combined with their prohibiting armed teachers from being armed and being able to you know, actually defend their own law abiding selves and the kids in their classrooms kind of emphasizes that gun control isn’t about crime at all.

    It’s about disarming the law abiding rendering them less of a threat to the government. The fact that there will be increased crime and violence is simply acceptable collateral damage.

    And the 49rs and the NFL think that’s a good thing. Getting harder and harder not to think of them as a bunch of thugs.
