2/ Many politicians, especially those on the Right, pretend they are strictly adhering to the U.S. #Constitution when they often are just making the founding document mean whatever they want – but perhaps nowhere is that as dangerous as with their make-believe #SecondAmendment.
3/ In the wake of a Sunday mass shooting in #LasVegas—where one individual firing from a high-rise hotel murdered 58 people and wounded more than 500 at a country music festival ---
Just a reminder to the #2ndAmendment supporters. We will lose our Gun Rights if Democrats take back control. They have the majority of the indoctrinated millennial vote to make it happen. Folks, it's time to #RedPill your family and friends.
They need hard lessons from the history of an unarmed society. See the Middle East, See Germany, Uk, Austrailia. Everyone must get out and vote even if you think it doesn't matter. No matter how angry you are at this administration. A lesson from History.
Let's talk about the #NRA, fear tactics, and the manipulation of the American people.
Some folks in #WeResist were discussing fear tactics, "well-regulated militias", and the NRA in general. We're gonna dive into these topics in this thread. #Resist 1/
First up, the #NRA, everytime a mass shooting happens, the NRA come out strong in defense of guns. We expect them to, after all, it's what they do. They call the gunman "crazy", they say that "crazy" people shouldn't have access to guns, etc. 2/
You don't necessarily have to be "crazy" to do a mass shooting. True enough that most of the people that have committed mass shootings are "crazy" but it's not something that is synonymous with being crazy. You just have to be evil enough to do it. 3/
Renewed lapsed @NRA membership for 5 years b/c of corporate cowardice in face of social media tactics that regularly get used against conservatives on a range of issues, not just #2A#TweetYourNRAMembership Anyone who thinks they will not also go after #1A isn't paying attn
The #NRA is a powerful functioning arms industry #lobby masquerading as a 501(c)4 #nonprofit membership organization, claiming to educate the public about the interests of its members. Here’s why we need to stop this lie and strip it of nonprofit status:
If you do the math, with 5 million members x $40 annual dues, the #NRA should have an annual budget of about $200 million dollars as a membership organization.
However, the NRA'S total budget was over $400 million in 2016 because more than half of its budget comes from individual and corporate contributions and selling advertising in publications and events.
You won’t know that if you watch the #FakeNewsMedia, Drive-By Media and their continual harangue, which is as predictable as the sun coming up after each one of these horrific incidents.
How in the world can political differences be put aside when even the marchers and their agenda sound very similar to that of the Democrat Party, which is find a way to get rid of the guns and find a way to get rid of the NRA. #WakeUpAmerica
The more Laws added to our #2ndAmendment the easier it will be to dismantle it completely in the future. They say “let’s not sell guns to mentally ill people”, but who defines “mentally ill”. Someone that had to take medicine for PTSD for dealing with the aftermath of
Social welfare programs were put into place to create a dependent, nonworking element in our society. The government then began to remove these programs to force people into a criminal class that did not exist in the '50s and '60s.
The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of
military firearms for the criminals to use.
This needs to fucking stop. I’m god damn sick and tired of hearing about the most recent mass shooting or school shooting. 15 fucking children were slaughtered in their school today because the fucking @NRA and insane #2ndAmendment types(not all) push back against every common
sense piece of #guncontrol. After fucking #vegasshooting the @NRA opposed banning bumpstocks like the fucking cowards they are. They talk a big game but when it comes tome to actually do something they do shit except say “it’s not the time to politicize this” or
“thoughts and prayers”. If you are a member/ supporter of the @NRA and say this with no action fuck you. You are complicit in these shootings, you have blood on your hands. And you mental fucking midgets who spew “oh gun control doesn’t work” or “we need more good guys with guns”
