In wake of Scalise shooting, gun
control couldn’t be more urgent

The Hill [Washington, DC], by John Feinblatt

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/15/2017 6:34:12 PM

Once again this week, Americans coast-to-coast are grappling with the horror of senseless gun violence — from California, where at least three victims are dead from a shooting near a UPS facility in San Francisco — to our nation’s capital, where Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) was shot alongside congressional staffers and police officers. (Snip) Over the coming days and weeks, people will point fingers and try to figure out how to prevent such tragedies in the future. The time for that discussion will come. For now, we should remember the lasting image of the House Democratic baseball team Wednesday morning,

Comments:
What a great idea. s/o If there had not been a security detail with Scalise, instead of a few people who were injured there could have been a massacre of those innocent people. I will never comprehend how zealots like that cannot see that fact. Feinblatt used to work in the mayor´s office for the gun hater Michael Bloomberg, that is not stated at the end of the article. The group he represents was formed by Bloomberg to destroy the NRA. Good luck with that.

I get it: Democrats want gun control. Gun control, to them, means law-abiding citizens cannot own and keep guns of any sort. Gun control means that law-abiding citizens are unarmed and therefore dependent upon law enforcement, which is under impossible pressure not to shoot their guns under any circumstances, for protection. Democrats cannot convince enough citizens that gun control is a good idea so they use inflammatory rhetoric against their political opponents (people who oppose gun control) and then sit back and watch as their lunatic followers shoot people. They then blame those who are pro-2nd amendment (read: the ones getting shot) for the fact that they are getting shot. They use the very shootings that their rhetoric incited as evidence that they ought to get their way. If they said, "Nice life you´re living...too bad if you were to lose it" it couldn´t be more like gangland violence. We see, more and more, that we are now up against a credentialed and anointed elite class that is criminal.

Just keep asking specifically how their proposals would stop the violence. And when they stutter, ask them just how effective is the cocaine ban, and why would a gun ban work any better.

We used to put criminals in jail until Obama and Holder release all of them, then allowed those in the South to empty their jails and send them here. But that was not enough for Obama and Holder. No, they then used the federal government apparatus to investigate, not the criminals, no, the cops. With all this, citizens have nothing left but to defend themselves. If the left wants less guns on the street, then the place to start would be to get the criminals off the street.

Gun control isn´t the issue. Virginia allows open and concealed carry, but none of the congressmen or their staff were armed, because they came from Washington D.C.

The problem is crazy leftists who have been calling for violence against their political opponents. They advocate violence, and then want us to be disarmed, as well. I don´t think so.

Most of us normal people know dozens of friends and neighbors who own guns, and have no fear whatsoever of responsible adults carrying. We also know that leftists conflate suicide numbers in their tally, vastly increasing the numbers quoted in their ´gun violence´ proclamation.

Leftist betters - leave us alone! Understand that we are free, moral, sentient beings capable of making decisions - loving life and our freedom to defend it.

It´s a good thing the Capital Police had great gun control when they killed the shooter. Aim small miss small. Boom. Nice shooting officers. How to prevent tragedies like this in the future? Just look at the guys Facebook postings, and stop doing those things that got his so agitated and crazy. Stop the war on cops. Stop with the calls for violence in the streets and get a grip on inciting this kind of action.

When I was a kid, every family around us had at least one gun. There were guns all over America. People hunted, target shooting was abundant and kids respected guns. There were very few accidents. What happened? The breakdown of the family? No father figures anymore? What? I just don´t get why people are settling scores with guns now.
I´m keeping my gun. Clean it regularly these days.

in practice, Democratic regulations only are for constraining Republicans. whether it is sexual harassment, trash talk, slander, prejudice, incitement to violence, obstruction of justice, the rules are only to be applied against Republicans while Democrats can do anything they please. Gun control is going to mean Donkeys are armed and GOP is not. Do not do it.

Ever wonder why the NRA is always blamed by the liberals every time some leftist nut job murders some innocent people?

As these incidents occur from time to time is is never an NRA member who does the murdering.

This guy says gun control could not be more urgent, but he does not point out what type of gun control he is talking about.

Does he really believe that the shooter in Virginia would obey gun control laws? It is said in the media that the shooter was armed with some sort of semiautomatic rifle that is illegal in his home State of Illinois.

Clinton: GOP will become the

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/23/2017 9:20:24     Post Reply
Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came out swinging in a tweet Friday, saying if Senate Republicans pass their current healthcare bill, they will become the “death party.” Clinton’s post referenced an article from the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute, which cited Harvard researchers as saying “the Senate bill could result in 18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026.” (Snip) The tweet from Clinton follows an earlier tweet urging her supporters to "speak out against" the bill.

Former President Obama’s foreign policy adviser and speechwriter Ben Rhodes implied Fox News was state-sanctioned media on Friday. “Avoiding on camera questions from independent media and favoring a state-sanctioned outlet would be cause for concern in any country,” Rhodes said in a tweet, linking to another tweet about White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer´s interview with the network. (Snip) Rhodes comment comes as the White House takes criticism for refusing to hold on-camera press briefings.

EXCLUSIVE: President Trump is considering calling a Camp David-style summit to address growing tensions among long-established U.S. allies in the Arab world and renew his call for those nations to confront the “crisis of Islamic extremism,” Fox News has learned. The gathering would follow Saudi Arabia, Egypt and five other Muslim countries severing diplomatic and commercial relations with Qatar. The regional powers had accused the tiny Gulf state of funding terrorism – blasting Qatar for allegedly boosting groups like ISIS, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and working with Iran to destabilize the region.

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned.

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation.
