Here is a comprehensive list of the current 2nd Amendment counties and States. It’s probably a lot more than you think:

New Zealand PM announces ban on semi-automatic weapons and assault rifles CBS "News" ^ | UPDATED ON: MARCH 20, 2019 / 10:56 PM / CBS NEWS
Posted on 3/20/2019, 11:49:37 PM by Lazamataz
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced Thursday all assault weapons and "military-style automatic weapons" would be banned in the wake of last week's mosque shootings in Christchurch that left 50 people dead. Ardern said she expects the new law to be in place by April 11 and buy-back programs will be put in place for banned weapons.
Ardern said the shooting suspect had purchased his weapons legally and a "simple online purchase" of 30-round magazines had enhanced their capacity. Ardern said all semi-automatic used during the attack would be banned.
"I strongly believe that the vast majority of legitimate gun owners in New Zealand will understand that these moves are in the national interest, and will take these changes in their stride," Ardern said.
Ardern said the government acknowledged that some guns serve "legitimate purposes in our farming communities" and thus they were setting aside exemptions for .22 caliber rifles and shotguns.
"We're taking out of circulation the guns that can be modified that way and are designed essentially to take lives," Ardern said in a press conference.
Ardern said she expected the buyback program to cost anywhere between $100 million ($69 million in American dollars) and $200 million ($138 million in American dollars) but "that is the price that we must pay to ensure the safety of our communities."
Within hours of the deadly attack, Ardern said the country's gun laws would change. It was the country's deadliest shooting since 1990.
Out of an estimated 1.2 million registered guns, New Zealand police report that as of Tuesday night, 37 firearms have been surrendered nationwide, according to BuzzFeed.

Even the television anchors in New Zealand bowed to Sharia law and wore hijabs on Friday.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern (Dagny: Or should we call him Jack Ardern? I’m not sure...) donned a hijab when she met with Muslim community members in Christchurch last weekend and reassured them that NZ stands with them following the mosque shooting.

Jacinda Ardern then announced New Zealand will broadcast the Muslim call to prayer across the nation on TV and radio Friday.
Muslim women in Iran, Saudi Arabia and other nations under Sharia law are oppressed and are forced to wear the Islamic head cover.
One Iranian woman who’s fighting against Iran’s dictatorship was furious over the #HeadScarfForHarmony campaign and expressed her anger over it in a tweet.
I am an Iranian woman who fights for my basic rights under the Islamic regime tyranny and you are all partners of this atrocious crime.
still, We are the ones who pay the price for all the stupidity of this world.

Another woman who is an ex-Muslim living in Canada said the women in New Zealand are only “normalizing rape culture and oppression of millions of women all over the globe!”

BAGHOUZ, Syria -- The caliphate has crumbled, and the final offensive is over. While the official announcement hasn’t yet been made – Fox News has been told that this village, the last ISIS stronghold, is liberated.
It’s the first time since we’ve been here in Syria for five days that the bombs have stopped dropping and the gunfire has disappeared. We have witnessed the end of the caliphate – the brutal empire that once ruled over 8 million people – is gone.
Troops here are now bringing down the black flags of ISIS. The flags no longer fly over the town, instilling fear.

Asylum-seekers must wait in Mexico (El Paso Border Patrol sending them back) The Albuquerque Journal ^ | March 22, 2019 | Angela Kocherga
Posted on 3/22/2019, 8:28:04 AM by CedarDave
EL PASO – In a major shift, the Department of Homeland Security is about to begin sending asylum-seekers who crossed the border in the El Paso region back to Mexico, where they will wait for their cases to be heard.
The changes under the migrant protection protocols are set to start by the end of the week. Currently, families seeking asylum usually are released within days and allowed to remain in the United States for months, and sometimes years, for their cases to wind through the court system.
In recent weeks, several hundred asylum-seeking migrants a day have been crossing through the El Paso sector, which includes all of New Mexico. Most crossed illegally – often waiting for and waving down Border Patrol – while a few dozen of those waiting to cross at the border checkpoints were allowed in each day.
“It’s a crisis because we are not ready as a city,” Jorge Muñoz, migrant relief coordinator at a makeshift shelter in Ciudad Juárez, said of the change. The shelter lies just across the border from El Paso.
Authorities in Mexico were notified in meetings this week about the U.S. plan to expand the migrant protection protocols along this stretch of border.
Under the plan the Trump administration first called “Remain in Mexico,” asylum applicants will be sent south of the border to wait while their cases move through immigration courts in the U.S. The protocols are already in place in the Mexican border cities of Tijuana and Calexico and now have been expanded to include Ciudad Juárez.

Not so Great Britain:
FOX News reported:
The U.K. government agency in charge of immigration has come under fire for denying political asylum to an Iranian convert to Christianity and explaining its decision on its contention that the religion is not peaceful. The Iranian man had said in his asylum petition that he converted to Christianity because it was a “peaceful” religion.
The U.K. Home Office, which oversees immigration and passports, among other things, sent the Iranian national a letter that said the book of Revelations is “filled with imagery of revenge, destruction, death and violence,” according to the Independent.
It cited excerpts from the Bible, according to the newspaper, and added: “These examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to Christianity after discovering it is a ‘peaceful’ religion, as opposed to Islam which contains violence, rage and revenge.”
A Christian man fleeing persecution in Iran has been DENIED asylum in the UK, because Christianity is a "violent" religion according to the Home Office.
Meanwhile 400 returning ISIS Jihadis have been let into the UK. Let this sink in 😖 1984!

Reporter: You said the Democrats are anti-Israel and Democrats are anti-Jewish. They’re not going to the AIPAC Conference and you’re not going as well.
President Trump: The Democrats have very much proven to be anti-Israel. There’s no question about that and it’s a disgrace. You know, I don’t know what’s happened to them but they are totally anti-Israel and frankly I think they are anti-Jewish.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Thursday requiring colleges that receive federal funding to comply with the First Amendment’s protection of free speech.
The executive order declares that twelve federal grant agencies and the Office of Management and Budget be sure that any colleges receiving research or education grants are upholding the freedom of speech and principles of free inquiry. It will not apply to student aid.
“To every student and young person here today and watching, don’t let anyone stop you from doing what you know is right, from asking questions, from challenging the powerful, or from speaking your mind, that’s the primary reason we’re here right now,” Trump added. “Never, ever quit. Never give in, and never back down. Keep standing up for your values, for your classmates, and for your country.”
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/03/watch-president-trump-signs-executive-order-to-protect-free-speech-on-college-campuses/ Hillary said she had deleted these— but here they are now in the hands of Judicial Watch!:
Judicial Watch today announced it received 756 pages of newly uncovered emails that were among the materials former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to delete or destroy, several of which were classified and were transmitted over her unsecure, non-“state.gov” email system.
Hillary Clinton repeatedly stated that the 55,000 pages of documents she turned over to the State Department in December 2014 included all of her work-related emails. In response to a court order in another Judicial Watch case, she declared under penalty of perjury in 2015 that she had “directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or are potentially federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done.”
In 2017, the FBI uncovered 72,000 pages of documents Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose. Until the court intervened and established a new deadline, the State Department had been slow-walking the release of those documents at a rate that would have required Judicial Watch and the American people to wait until at least 2020 to see all the releasable Clinton material. The production of documents in this case is now concluded with the FBI being only able to recover or find approximately 5,000 of the 33,000 government emails Hillary Clinton took and tried to destroy.
Judicial Watch obtained the documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on May 6, 2015, after the State Department failed to respond to a March 4, 2015, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)) seeking:
John Solomon: Top Prosecutor Has Proof Ukraine Colluded with Hillary Campaign in 2016 Election
Trump Tweet: “John Solomon: As Russia Collusion fades, Ukrainian plot to help Clinton emerges.” @seanhannity @FoxNews
The Hill reported:
Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
The leak of the so-called “black ledger” files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years.
Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign.
The parliamentarian also secured a court ruling that the leak amounted to “an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign,” Lutsenko told me. Lutsenko said the tape recording is a serious enough allegation to warrant opening a probe, and one of his concerns is that the Ukrainian law enforcement agency involved had frequent contact with the Obama administration’s U.S. embassy in Kiev at the time.
“Today we will launch a criminal investigation about this and we will give legal assessment of this information,” Lutsenko told me.
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/03/441415/ Threat by the Leftist Censors to Ban URLs - another example:
"This is an emergency alert concerning Brighteon.com, the free speech video platform alternative to YouTube.
I’m writing this at 12:45 am, March 21st. The Brighteon platform is now under extreme threat by upstream infrastructure providers over users posting footage of the New Zealand Christchurch shooting. We are being threatened to remove all the videos or face complete annihilation online, starting with being de-platformed from infrastructure providers, followed by legal action from none other than the nation of Australia (not even New Zealand itself, but Australia and it’s “Office of the eSafety Commissioner.”)
As InfoWars also covered earlier today, the next escalation of censorship will involve banning URLs from browsers, meaning Chrome, FireFox, etc. will not even allow you type in “Brighteon.com” or “Infowars.com” or any other site the globalist controllers don’t want you to see. They will use another false flag shooting as justification to ban any URL they want, always in the name of “public safety.”
In terms of practical actions, we have been building an “underground” information hub for many months — a new solution that will make content available to human eyes but invisible to all search engines and computer algorithms. Sadly, human truth is going to have to move to “underground” status to evade de-platforming efforts by totalitarian fascists.
I will record a strong video follow-up message in the coming days and post it on Brighteon, unless the internet tyrants annihilate it first. We are working hard to protect free speech, but the globalists are now holding loaded guns at our head and saying they will pull the trigger if we do not comply. For the moment, we are forced to comply in order to save all the other videos on the platform. However, in the long run, we have no intention whatsoever to comply with tyranny and authoritarianism."
