Petition to Christopher Wray, Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke, FBI Deputy Director

Declare the NRA a supporter of domestic terrorism

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is more a political lobby than sportsmen's organization. It has spent over $3 million per year since 2013 to keep gun policies in an antiquated state despite the fact that  more Americans have died from gun violence (over 1.5 million) than from all the wars since the Revolution, and now want some form of gun control. A sensible reading of the 2nd Amendment would restrict purchase of equipment designed for mass murder: large clips, military grade semi-and fully automatic rifles, and ammunition for the same, which could be as easily tracked as over-the-counter medication. Yet none of it will be regulated while the NRA effectively controls the GOP. While not a branch of government, the NRA has enormous impact on American life by coercing politicians and voters with money and intimidation, and restricting our safety and public health. Thousands have already signed another petition calling the NRA a terrorist organization, and the governor of Connecticut agrees. Former NRA CEO and multi-millionaire Wayne LaPierre has said that "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." As at Stoneman Douglas High, where three or four armed deputies waited outside during the shooting, this is rarely true and unfortunately doesn't help the shooter's victims. In Las Vegas, where over 500 people were shot with automatic gunfire, the shooter was inaccessible and shot himself before police arrived. In the wake of these horrific attacks the NRA mobilizes to enrich gun and ammo manufacturers while putting Americans at increasing risk of being shot. NRA's newly appointed CEO, Oliver North, infamously sold weapons to Iran to finance a covert Central American war under Reagan. This shows the cynicism and moral rot central to the organization; there is no reason to think they will ever act responsibly. Domestic terrorism is on the rise in the wake of Trump's election. White nationalist groups were eager to claim the shooter in Parkland as one of their own. The NRA facilitates both the arming and the militant ideology of these groups, supporting domestic terrorism. While right-wing politicians divert or attention with imagined threats from immigrants, the NRA does real harm to democracy, spreading anti-government hysteria and the idea of armed insurrection. The FBI should stop hesitating and brand the NRA for what it does rather than what it claims. This and other petitions aim to tarnish its reputation enough to interrupt its pernicious political influence. The victims of Santa Fe High (TX), Stoneman Douglas (Parkland, Fl), Sutherland Springs (11/5/17), Las Vegas (10/2/17), the  2016 Orlando shooting, Sandy Hook Elementary, Tree of Life Synagogue, and on and on and miserably on deserve no less.  Please sign the MoveOn.org petition, another petition seeking to designate the NRA a terrorist organization under the Patriot Act, and support the Violence Policy Center.

Petition to Department of Justice

CLEAR Chief Lacewell {Highest Ranking TAS Agent EVER} creator of The C.H.A.R.L.I.E.S. FIVE

CLEAR THE NAME OF CHIEF D. MYKE J. LACEWELL HIGHEST RANKING TAS {Tactical Assault Specialist} OFFICER/AGENT EVER! The City of Lexington has proven that Chief Lacewell is truly and legally the Senior TAS Officer/Agent of ACT Guard Tactical Assault and that he was acting in legal merits to his legal duties to the community and that he was NOT responding to a police call, RATHER a quarter of his neighborhood came to the Tact House where he is assigned and resides. Lexington Court, D.A. and the Lexington Police Department have yet to accept responsibility for a horrendous mistake. No, they have continued to try and get Chief to accept any charge so that they don't have a Lawsuit. We his Supporters say, IT IS FAR TOO LATE. They are facing countless and multiple lawsuit on various levels, and each who caused his false arrest. Once the case is over we the Supporters of Chief Lacewell will DEMAND ALL NAMES INVOLVED! It's past time for REAL JUSTICE! Power hungry Rookie Police Officer shows his inexperience when he falsely arrested the Senior ranking TAS {Tactical Assault Specialist) Officer and Chief of The Guard, whilst he was responding to his Call of Duty and his neighbors desperate pleas. Chief Myke J. Lacewell 43 year old Serving Hero who was currently volunteering his and his Guards/Officers and Agents hours to Secure and Protect the frustrated and pleading citizens from the growing criminal element in his own neighborhood on his very street. This Black Ops Specialist known for Tactical Rescues and Kidnappings. He mainly that takes no money, because he believes he can't put a price on saving a life, not even hourly. This very same man who created the only and first male cancer foundation. Fighter against cancer and all diseases for over 2 decades. The creator of 3 100% non-income deductible fundraiser of children's cancer and sick Veterans. This man who when he gets a paycheck of grand amounts, he cashes it, then he drops it over half off anonymously at a charity. With no credit ever needed. THIS MAN, is the man that was purposely setup by 4 young college girls seeking attention. Setup from his own neighbors who he freely offered his time to listen after a burglary and the cops had came and went, but they were terrified and wanted true and complete Protection and Security through the night. Especially since the offender was still at large and the officers told the young ladies that the odds were that they would not find out who robbed them. Chief Lacewell was question, with no respect to rank or position, he was detained and arrested hours after he responded to a clients & neighbors complaint. He was charged with impersonating and officer, though he works with officers all over the globe, and they knew this charge not to be true. Plus he trains Officers, theirs and many countless others. He rescues countless officers in trouble when the threat is above a regular shots fired. He has been the unseen bodyguard to countless political higher ups on both Political sides and yet they put this lie on him to arrest him. ALL BECAUSE OF THE CHARLIES FIVE BILL/ACT !! A weak and cruel attempt to steal one of our Nation's, one of our World's most sacred of Protectors, most cherished of the un-honored shield Valor. Chief Lacewell was booked in his full tactical uniform and Shield, weapons, vest and all. Once in jail Chief Lacewell was stripped of all of his clothing for this entire stay, it was not a short one! Chief Lacewell was beaten in his cell late at night in his sleep, waking up on the floor unaware of what transgressed, but full aware that he felt as if he had been beaten senseless, repeatedly. His entire stay was in a cell for lunatics on the ward for lunatics. They spit in his food so that it was obvious, his trays of food were ALWAYS soaked in liquid and mushy gunk by the time he got it. He was on constant watch by inmates, and they started to feel bad for him, so they would pre-tell him about the food and they snuck him little niblets of food for him to survive. And survive he did. But after a FULL 10,000 dollar bond and he is still being taking to court a year later with full charges. The girls have relocated and have never shown for court, other witnesses robbed that same day have made several statements contradicting the false charges and statements and yet the City and D.A. still persist. Chief Lacewell has lost over 5.7 Million dollars in the past year of expected income, his local office couldn't afford to stay open finacially nor reputation wise. Money and a reputation desperately needed to Fund The C.h.a.r.l.i.e.s. Five ACT and his family. Contracts were put on freeze and his reputation has been slander without limit. They took all forms of identification from him, so he basically doesn't exist if questioned and he was warned that he would be arrest for such. They also tried to hide that they added that Chief Lacewell is supposed to be the thief. When Chief Lacewell was on a missing Child/Persons Case and he found 2 dead children whist looking for one. And yet when he got back, he proceeded to assist one of his teams on a raid and then he went to his office to train more cadets. At that time he was called and told that the neighbor hood had been robbed hours prior and the neighbors were out in big numbers looking for Chief. Hours later Chief was free to respond and yet the officers and court were told this immediately and yet they chose to disbelieve the entire neighborhood on the chance/hope to get a fake cop bust, in a time when they had 3 active fakers out there.{Note; Chief Lacewells' House & 2 Cars were broken into as well & Robbed} Oddly enough they had 9, Chief Lacewell and The Guard caught the other 6, but that seems to be irrelevant in Kentucky. The Judge told Chief Lacewell, that he knew exactly who he was and they have all the legal proof that Chief is Chief. And yet they still say the must prosecute. When his Lawyer asked what type of madness this was, they were told that in Kentucky You're Guilty until proven innocent. The opposite of our Constitutional rights. And yet they have yet to to stop, this has gone on for a year and they keep pressing. At this point, it's not all about an apology.. Just SET THIS MAN FREE!!!!! To add he was immediately allowed by the judge to return to work and yet he was arrest for that very same said work. He has not been able to accept one cent while under this case and yet he has worked every single day non stop. FREE OUR HERO< FREE OUR CHIEF!!!   Special Note: Chief was never even read his right by acknowledgement of the Officer and yet it's obvious this was not about Chief having any Rights.

Petition to US State Department

Ban Downloadable Guns and Plastic Guns

On July 31st, a United States Federal Judge blocked Cody Wilson and his organization, Defense Distributed from releasing their 3D printed gun blueprints. However, the judge did provide Wilson with other options, such as mailing USB drives with the information on them. In addition, Defense Distributed illegally released the blueprints to the public, days before they were scheduled to be granted permission.  3D printed guns are dangerous because they can be made on demand and can bypass security checkpoints undetected. Also, they have no serial number making the guns untraceable. Kids, felons, terrorists, abusers and mentally ill people could all get their hands on an unlimited amount of guns, without a single background check. Safe Nation demands that a bill is passed, stating that all gun blueprints are illegal to be sold in the United States. If you agree, take a minute to sign the petition because every signature counts!  Safe Nation is a student led organization fighting to end gun violence. It was founded in July, 2018 and has been fighting for gun violence ever since. Text @GUNFREE to 810-10 to subscribe to text message updates! REGISTER TO VOTE! Text @FUTURE to 644-33!
