Last summer, 2 teenagers legally purchased an SKS semi-automatic rifle, killed 3 people & sparked a massive manhunt until they committed suicide. This was NOT the first time the SKS assault-style rifle had been used in criminal activity. Here are a few exs: #cdnhist #cdnpoli 1/
2017: Oscar Arfmann murdered Constable John Davidson with an SKS rifle in a parking lot in British Columbia #cdnpoli #guncontrol 2/
2017: Lionel Desmond legally purchased an SKS rifle, then 2 hours later killed his wife Shanna, daughter Aaliyah (age 10) & mother Brenda. Desmond suffered from PTSD & depression. #guncontrol #cdnpoli 3/…

Some facts for every #GunControl idiot ever

A little something I stole from @robkroese


A thread

-Mass shootings are NOT on the rise in the U.S.

-The U.S. does not have the most mass shooting deaths of any country.

-It is outranked, per capita, by Norway, Serbia, France, Macedonia, Albania, Slovakia, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

-In murders per capita, the U.S. is outranked by Brazil, India, Mexico, South Africa and 9 other countries. All of them have stricter gun laws than the U.S

-U.S. Gun homicide rate over 20+ years has dropped by 49% while the number of legally owned guns has increased by 56%.

Good Guys with Guns vs The Police

If youre an Officer or Sheriff that upholds #guncontrol at any level, believes in Red Flags, that "If you ain't got nothing to hide, you ain't got nothing to worry about.", or if only you should have machine guns...

You're stupid
If you're a Police Officer or Sheriff that believes Mental Health issues are an automatic, disqulifying factor to gun ownership, or that Gun-Free zones protect people from mass shootings or individuals hell-bent on harming the innocent...

You're not a good guy with a gun
If you're a Police Officer or Sheriff that, despite threats to their jobs and maybe even their livelihoods, you uphold your oath and swear to never enforce #guncontrol laws that your constituents and fellow citizens are being targeted with - youre, probably, a good guy with a gun

when i called #2016Elections a coup d’etat, was not being dramatic

the conditions leading up to the elections had all the elements of a coup

1. a radicalized authoritarian opposition

2. Generals with god-complexes

3. fascist-bootlicking Moderates™ in power

4. a weak Left

the beauty of being a free-range scholar is that one becomes untethered from the authoritarian restrains set by the White Power Movement that corrupted academic discourse during the Reagan Revolution

LITERALISM is part of that corruption

1/Concerned about sneaky legislation getting through Congress while we are all distracted by impeachment?

Did you know that You can create an account at and sign up for email alerts, track legislation and follow activities of House & Senate?

2/ You can do searches for certain topics, like #GunControl and see who is co-sponsoring bills, and what the legislative support is on bills from certain Representatives and Senators. For example, I see #EdMarkey has co-sponsored a Gun Violence Prevention Research Act.
3/ From there, I can click on Ed Markey's name to get alerts so that I know when he is co-sponsoring and voting on bills.

Bloomberg's rise from middle class guy who worked his way through college to billionaire news mogul is also one of philanthropy and left-leaning causes like #guncontrol.

Michael Bloomberg launches campaign for president
Bloomberg is a true billionaire and has always made his tax returns public. He's called on Trump, who has never made a dime on his own, to do the same.
Bloomberg may not be the guy the centrists want--or maybe he is, but this is a serious run.
I'm with Bernie on the subject of billionaires, but Bloomberg is no Tom Steyer. Dismissing his run would be an error. He's in it to win it and while I don't see him gaining too much traction, I do see him shaking up the center and reshuffling the deck. We shall see.

Often, we don't always apply the correct terms to an agenda that's deliberately aligned against us, free citizens in the United States.

Its important to recognize these terms, from time to time, to realize exactly what IS at stake.

The #guncontrol agenda intends to Subjugate us
Subjugatjon, in the 21st Century, is an action taken solely by those who believe they are entitled to time, money and rights of individuals that live under their societal banner

Governments, Corporations and Entities have all blurred the lines between one another for this goal
The idea of bringing society at large in line with ideas that deliberately strip us of our Liberty and Individuality continues to be one of those ideas that keeps me motivated to stand against its fruition by whatever means are necessary and available, realistically speaking

A tour de force from ⁦@GerryConnolly⁩ about Virginia’s transformation from deep red to true blue during ⁦@VaDemocracy⁩ meeting. ⁦@FairfaxDems⁩ ⁦@DranesvilleDems
@GerryConnolly @VaDemocracy @FairfaxDems @DranesvilleDems Meeting was in #Dranesville.

Connolly: "In 1980s, Dranesville was seen out of reach and the only time @TheDemocrats won was when it was a three-way race. In 2007, @JohnFoustVA was first to win one-on-one. He won't be the last. Things have changed."
@GerryConnolly @VaDemocracy @FairfaxDems @DranesvilleDems @TheDemocrats @johnfoustva In 1995, Connolly first ran for #Fairfax, VA, Board of Supervisors, it was 6 R and 4 D. Connolly made it 5-5 and sound it was majority D and we've never looked back. 2019 made it 9-1. @FCPS School Board is 12-0.

Let’s consider what we got for the grifter @POTUS bargaining away my and your kid’s future: a corporate tax break that never trickled down to employees. A net reduction on those covered by healthcare and a decrease in life expectancy for those in poverty...
A global military presence with our military families continuously stretched thin - but now we’re switching sides to aid former enemies who continue to undermine our democracy, brutally killing journalists and pro-democracy leaders.
A complete roll back of our environmental standards - taking us away from the few international agreements and protocols that show even the slightest promise of forcing global leaders to change fossil fuel consumption patterns.

The National Citizen's Coalition was incorporated in 1975 by an insurance agent names Colin M. Brown. Mr. Brown had begun advertising back in 1967 against the Canada Health Act. 2/25
Our universal health care was the NCC's primary target, but over the 4 decades it has been in existence, it has also campaigned against;

- The Canadian Wheat Board

- the Canadian Labour Congress' strike protesting wage and price controls in 1975

Calling all activists in medicine. A @WSJopinion by former @PennMedicine dean says future doctors/med students should not be engaged in #guncontrol, #ClimateChange and matters of "social justice"…
@WSJopinion @PennMedicine @ThisIsOurLane @CarolynCannu @zacharymeisel @rachel_fsimon @MonaHannaA @PhillyInquirer @PDX_Tom Gratifying to see such a vigorous, compelling medical community response to Goldfarb's @WSJopinion here & social media.
Aligned w/ some points from August @NewYorker essay… "Meeting the challenges of modern medicine will require more than seeing patients."

NEW THREAD: (TL;DR - The 2nd Amendment was never intended as a limitless right to private firearms ownership.)

18th Century concepts of 'militia' in America were very different than popular understanding these days. #2A #GunReformNow
In the late 1700s, the militias were the backbone of security for the newly established USA. Every adult white man from age 16 and up was required to be in the militia. It was the 18th Century version of compulsory military service. #2A #GunReformNow
The militia were viewed as a bulwark against the tyranny of a standing army. Because of their experience with the British Red Coats, Americans were robustly against a paid, standing army.

(Clearly, in 2019, having a standing army is no longer a concern for most Americans.) #2A

@FreedomOutpost @NRA @Heritage @sandboxx @AmmoLand @Oathkeepers @parscale @tedcruz @LindseyGrahamSC @GOP This is where all of this mindless dribble from the left leads.
Because every idea platform they promote, eventually causes them to "eat their own" whereby they destroy themselves.

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4393: El Paso Mass Shooter - Using Body Language as a Threat Assessment Tool - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence

#ElPasoShooting #ThreatAssessment #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #GunControl
1/ On Saturday 3 August 2019, Patrick Wood Crusius allegedly went on a shooting rampage inside a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. He traveled about 1,050 km (~650 miles) from his home in Allen, Texas to do so.
2/ Tragically, 22 people have died while another 24 were wounded. About 30 minutes prior to the shooting, Crusius published manifesto online, ranting against immigration and declaring that “this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.”

The blowback got so bad that Dan Crenshaw had to make a video explaining that they're only having Discussions about Red Flag laws but nothing is imminent.

Don't let anyone tell you that #GunControl is popular, it isn't. Any so called right wing pundit who says this, is a shill.
When politicians are flirting with legislation that will betray their constituents, you raise hell and push back. Anyone who tells you to just blindly trust a politician, has an agenda. You can walk & chew gum at the same time. You can support AND question your fave politicians.
Anyone who questions Trump is Fake Maga is the right's version of anyone who disagrees with me is a racist.

Don't fall for it y'all. We love,defend and promote our great President but when he is proposing left wing legislation, we pushback . Dems da rules 😂

1/ Yes, not the sharpest tool in the shed (loved this expression, learned it in @cw_spn ). Nobody "likes" abortions, particularly the women who need them. It's traumatic and usually happens during an extremely stressful period of the woman's life.
@cw_spn 2/ There are services just to help women cope with post-abortion crisis. Why? Because it's real. It beats - individually and socially - the consequences of unwanted abortions.…
@cw_spn 3/ These are the consequences of unwanted abortions:

I've been on here since day one. I have seen Trump supporters get mad before. Romney for SOS, Syria Bombing, Ominibus deal, etc. I've never seen people as angry as they are now. If trump goes down this #GunControl path, he is finished. We must tell him our 2A is non negotiable!
We all know that #GunControl doesn't work! We have litigated this for years. For some of you to now be in favor of it because it's Trump floating it out there, is frankly mind boggling. You can love Trump and oppose him on this issue.
What if Trump came out tomorrow in favor of abortion ? Would you stay quiet and just trust the plan? What about open borders? Would you be ok with that ? Nope you wouldn't. Then why should we be silent on the possibility of having our second ammendment bastardized?

@senatemajldr @potus @GOPChairwoman @GOP @senategopfloor @WhiteHouse @HouseGOP IGNORE THE MAYORS! its a knee-jerk reaction that tramples our rights and WILL NOT fix the underlying problem. #Guncontrol does nothing but control law abiding citizens 😡
The underlying problems include #mentalhealth; lack of #accountability; loss of #morality; removing #God from our communities; #relativity no more right or wrong; failure to enforce existing laws....
For decades citizens open carried and hung rifles in backs of trucks. We didn’t have problems because we knew right from wrong, had strong family units, neighbors looked out for each other, we had psychiatric hospitals, school kids were held accountable, & there were consequences
