MUST WATCH: A new ad from @Everytown/@MomsDemand is targeted at new gun owners and is aimed at keeping families safe during the coronavirus crisis, when Americans are buying guns at higher rates while their kids are at home. people.com/crime/psa-amer…
At least 4.6M children in the US live in homes with unsecured guns, a number that could increase as gun sales spike. With millions of children and teens at home unexpectedly due to school closures, secure gun storage can prevent unintentional shootings and teen suicide. #BeSMART
From 2015-2019 there were 1,600+ unintentional shootings by children, resulting in 600+ deaths and 1,100+ injuries; 600+ US children under 18 die by gun suicide annually, an 83% increase in the last decade. @MomsDemand created besmartforkids.org to reduce these child deaths.

I wrote this 2 years ago. The reason I’ve been in isolation for over a week is b/c I responded on 9/11 and got sick. I was 21 and it was my job. That day and the days that followed were hard to get through. I’m not sure why young people are finding it so hard to simply stay home.
Going out at this point is only putting more people at risk. First responders, medical workers, sanitation, and other necessary workers are working around the clock. We should be trying to limit their exposure as well. #besmart #COVID19
Context: Tommy was a ferry boat captain on 9/11. Instead of docking he kept making return trips to lower Manhattan and is responsible for evacuating thousands. He served in the @USCG as well as the @FDNY. In Nov 2017 he ran the NYC marathon. Just 5 months later he died.

Need some tips on #remotework due to #COVID19?

👨‍💻 + 🏡 = 🤷‍♂️

Well, we've got a few...🙂

Here’s the gist:

👉 Individuals: try to create a routine that makes you feel productive, included, and motivated.

👉 Organizations: actively listen to and check in with staff to ensure everyone feels supported and included.

And, as the @WHO says, #besafe #besmart #bekind!

“Her son was aware of a firearm kept by the mother.”

Police believe the unsupervised children found the gun and passed it around. The 14-year-old then unintentionally shot himself in the head.

This is gun owner negligence. #besmart #notanaccident #txlege kron4.com/news/national/…
In the wake of this shooting tragedy caused by the negligence of an adult gun owner, @jm4tactical, a Texas firearms training company, is capitalizing on the death by offering free training FOR KIDS. The onus should always be on ADULTS to protect kids. ktxs.com/news/local/abi…
A 2017 study by the GAO reviewed four peer-reviewed academic research studies and found firearms training is not effective for children. In fact, 90% boys ages 8 to 12 are likely to handle a gun, even if they’ve had safety training. usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/health/20…

#Riseup #StandWithHongKong #FightForHongKong #WatchTheWater. Yesterday the authorities in Hong Kong declared that today’s March was illegal & anyone attending would be arrested. That fell on deaf ears as hundreds of thousands poured into the streets today. #RainOrShine
Since this March was declared illegal it was decided that today’s event would be a “Religious March” as the police can’t arrest anyone at a religious event. #ThesePeopleAreBrilliant #HiveMind! This showed up at a religious gathering last night.

There’s good reason to prepared for #TropicalStormDorian especially in Florida. Remember Harvey? Remember Andrew? Both examples of weather modification? I believe so.

@PhillyQ_ @love4thegameAK @beldandolo @TrophyTruck_Q @freenaynow @AllllAbboaaardd @AutistMember @EyesOnQ @BrohanKekistan @suyingeorge @destinlola @534f57494c4f0a Here are four screenshots from the night that Harvey made landfall the first time. You can see in Northern Mexico the burst of this weather modification. ImageImageImageImage

First why would these articles becoming out about POTUS saying we should use nuclear weapons against hurricanes? Second before “events” happen “they” openly tell what they are about to do.

It was an honor to moderate today’s panel at @the_wing in Chicago with gun violence survivors and @momsdemand volunteers who fight for stronger gun laws in the wake of their children’s deaths. Their activism is inspiring, and I’m grateful hundreds came to listen. #twill
Stories I heard: An Illinois woman got involved in @MomsDemand to teach #BeSMART after her boyfriend died by gun suicide. Another woman and mom of four left her abusive husband with the help and support of our volunteers. She now has a job in politics and plans to run for office.
Afterward, we wrote letters to Congress asking lawmakers to support Red Flag laws.

Thanks to these amazing women, @MomsDemand has grown exponentially in the state of Illinois and in the city of Chicago.

@RealJohnDough @stellitecash @electroneum I see a lot of junk talking from different communities instead of learning what the coin is about. I will do some research on Stellite. I hold ETN and at the moment ETN is definitely one of the top coins in terms of Amount of Users and use case🤑
@RealJohnDough @stellitecash @electroneum If you don't know about ETN just take a little time and research what's going on. The have a patent pending for Instant Crypto Payments and Subscription Crypto Payments. Deals have been made and more to come. Only Crypto with KYC and AML‼️
@RealJohnDough @stellitecash @electroneum I actually seen one comment that said you will burn your phone up trying to mine with ETN lmao🚀 Please make sure you do research you may find out Electroneum is way better than the coin you are currently holding‼️

Every year, I reject this cynical, hopeless, inaccurate tweet. So much has happened since #SandyHook.
.@MomsDemand was formed the day after and we’ve helped pass background checks in eight states, bringing the total to 20. Over 50% of Americans now live in states requiring a background check on every gun sale.
We’ve also worked hard to pass laws in 28 states - red and blue - that keep guns away from domestic abusers. Just a couple of months ago, we passed one in Pennsylvania. We won’t rest until every state protects women and children - the main victims - from domestic gun violence.

1) I reject this cynical, hopeless, inaccurate tweet. So much has happened since #SandyHook.
2) First of all, @MomsDemand happened. Started the day after #SandyHook, we now have a chapter in every state of the country; along with @Everytown, 4M supporters; and over 70,000 active volunteers who wake up every day and work on gun violence prevention like it's a job.
3) We've changed corporate gun policies at over a dozen major restaurants and retailers, including Starbucks, Target and Facebook, and we've helped thousands of local businesses to put up gun signage. When state laws don't protect constituents, businesses must protect customers.

1) UNBELIEVABLE: The @NRA says laws requiring adults to store their guns responsibly around children are not needed. scsun-news.com/story/opinion/…
2) More than 2M American children live in homes with unsecured guns, meaning guns that are loaded and accessible: everytownresearch.org/notanaccident/
3) There have been at least 213 unintentional shootings by American children just this year: everytownresearch.org/reports/innoce…
