A new federal Assault Weapons Ban #HR1296 has been introduced in the House by @davidcicilline (with 190 co-sponsors). As a good deal of evidence in support of such a ban is drawn from my research on the 1994 #AWB, it's worthwhile to review some of my findings. 1/

THREAD FOLLOWS
The 1994 #AWB took effect on Sept. 13, 1994, and it remained in force for exactly 10 years, expiring on Sept. 13, 2004. The primary goal of the 1994 #AWB was to reduce mass shooting violence. The 1994 ban was a direct response to five mass shootings from 1989-1993. 2/
The 5 mass shootings: 1989—Cleveland Street Elem. School in Stockton (5 dead); 1989—Standard Gravure in Louisville (8 dead); 1991—Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen (23 dead); 1993—101 California St. in San Francisco (8 dead); and 1993—Long Island Rail Road near Garden City (6 dead). 3/

We're working on restoring the media for the rest of our blogs but I thought I'd share our blog from 2/13/18 when Stephen Miller revealed about planning the #ParklandShooting The blog from 2/13/18 where Stephen Miller tells us about #ParklandShooting sjlcouncilsblog.wordpress.com/2018/02/13/mor…
"T16.5 and then boom" is CIA code T16.5=launch code and Boom=Shooting.
Stephen has flipped since then and I know today is hard for you, Steven. Sending our prayers for all involved today. ❤

Oh we told you at the end of the blog we didn't know who Jack in the box or Joker was but we'd tell you if we found out. Joker is S*an Hannity and Jack in the Box may be Jack Dorsey but I'm not sure on that one.

TW Last Feburary 13th, we were told by #StephenMiller that he would have a massive sh33ting in a few days in the south as a warning to two Council members on the top ten hit list that the Nazis have (both were from Florida originally). He then proceeded to message us a few hours
before the sh33ting bragging about how he was going to have a bunch of people murdered that day. Sure enough, hours later #Parkland happened. Was Cruz responsible? Partially. But there were #Blackwater agents and #RedMossad agents there too, remember the initial reports about
#SWAT teams? That was true. #StephenMiller planned it and #MikePompeo and #IvankaTrump financed it. We remember the brave students of #Parkland today who lost their lives at the hands of such madmen, you are heroes #neveragain #ParklandStrong - KL

Rep Swalwell said last night that as soon as this was passed, he called one of the #Parkland kids to let them know.. This is first significant gun legislation seen in Congress in 26 yrs. It's about time. #GunControlNow #ThursdayThoughts
washingtonpost.com/national/congr…
2-"The House Judiciary Committee passed a measure Wednesday that would require background checks for all gun sales and most gun transfers within the United States, the most significant gun-control legislation to advance this far in Congress in years. The committee spent more than
3-"nine hours debating the bill before voting 21 to 14 to advance it Wednesday night. Next, it will face a vote on the House floor. The measure was among the first actions taken by the newly elected Democratic majority, which pledged to make gun control a top issue.

After the shooting of 14 students and three adults at a Florida high school by a former student, parents and students rallied to say: Never again. But #SinceParkland, nearly 1,200 young lives have been taken by gunfire in the U.S. miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo…
That means that #SinceParkland, the United States have had enough young gun victims to fill three ultra-wide Boeing 777s, and the true number is certainly higher because no government agency keeps a real-time tally. miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo…
.@teamtrace wanted to acknowledge those lost lives. It assembled a team of more than 200 journalists — kids themselves — to research and write short portraits of every victim, 18 and under, for that 365-day period. sinceparkland.org #SinceParkland

1/13—I’m going to be traveling for work this week, but I have to be honest—my mind is on #Parkland with the anniversary on Thursday. I’m thinking about the phone call I had with @justinjm1 my @thedailybeast editor; I broke down after days of reporting on my community.
2/13—I’m thinking about how I’ll never fully understand the anguish of @fred_guttenberg or @rpetty or any of the other families for that matter. I'm thinking about the internal unseen pain people like @KyleKashuv @davidhogg111 @Emma4Change @PollackHunter must feel.
3/13—I'm thinking about how I never expected to report the news that my own 2-year-old was on lockdown at his school not far from Stoneman Douglas. I'm thinking about the father that was looking for his children. I’m thinking about the candles—the flowers by the teddy bear.

Thread. #MyLifeAsAResister looking back at 12 months which feels Iike 12 years. So much happened every day, but we put one foot in front of the other, wading through the lies, the chaos, the deconstruction of our institutions. We keep our faith. 1/24
January 2018, for the second time in two years, women and the men who support us, gathered by the millions to send a message. We will not be cowed by a regime that does everything to take away our own agency. My cousin Zigi and I at the #WomensMarch @ZigarinaZigi 2/24
February 2018. Looking for inspiration and wisdom, I went to see Dan Rather, whose book is a must read for resisters. @DanRather spoke eloquently about what he learned from decades of reporting, that we are mighty together, that our core values hold and that it IS up to US. 3/24

The two children should receive autopsies. and the cause of death should be made public and covered on EVERY media outlet that has reported it. We have children who die in the custody of public schools (#Parkland) It turns out the government IS responsible but no one reports it.
This article is from 2015..Wonder who was President then 🤔 Can anyone tell me why it was not addressed?

How about 2007? Wait a minute..democrats had control of BOTH the House and the Senate. Didn't someone report on this?

Research indicates that arming teachers will make children less safe. For this reason, school safety experts, teachers and law enforcement officials across the country oppose arming teachers: everytownresearch.org/arming-teacher…
The nation’s two largest organizations of education professionals, the @AFTunion and the @NEA, consistently reject the presence of guns in schools. The @NASRO_Info, the largest organization of school-based law enforcement officers, also opposes arming teachers.
Our children deserve real solutions to keep them safe from gun violence – like a criminal background check on every gun sale – not dangerous, @NRA-supported policies that put them at even higher risk while lining the pockets of gun manufacturers. #flapol #Parkland

I am still freaking the F out. My kids. My babies.

A real plan to shoot kids in school. MY kids school. With locks, double entrances, security guards, not a lot of doors.

Arrests made.

They’re safe. Only way I can tweet this through my tears and rage.

My kids arrived at school to find themselves in immediate lockdown within 10 minutes at their middle and high schools.
Here’s some texts of fear, I love you’s and me reminding them how to hide & run. Find your sister. Don’t save anyone else.

I couldn’t be there to protect them.
No parent should ever have to go through this. Ever. I keep thinking of @fred_guttenberg & the other #Parkland parents who will never see their babies again.

And the #parkland kids @davidhogg111 @Emma4Change
who had their lives threatened for not wanting to die at school.

12 more parents have lost their children. Another community is traumatized. I have had #enough

I am DONE with @NRA telling me I can't talk about this. DONE accepting federal limits on #research

And I know you are, too.

This is what you can do:
nyti.ms/2DaBzLG
1. Share your stories. After #Parkland, people across the country told about the horrors they had seen as #Docs4GunSense. Stories matter. This is not a glamorous movie. These injuries are REAL LIFE. This us OUR LANE.

2. Talk about guns. Talk about guns with gun owners and non gun owners. We are on the same side. Create consensus. Want some tips? Listen to me and @ERdisasterdoc - try it out for size.

WE TOLD YOU. Brennan trying to cover his FAILING OP that is FALLING APART.

Brennan counts on us NOT KNOWING that Saudi politics is very complicated. His plotters understand that complication. The Western audience they intended to HOODWINK does not.

VSGPOTUS is right. WAIT
The fact that they struck at Saudi Arabia FIGURES - also the fact that they struck ON TURKISH SOIL - exactly like the way communist BLOOD HOAXES in America are always in what I call "Deep Blue Murder Zones" - where all the workup of the crime is by a compromised authority.
Whether it's Eric Holder and #Parkland, Andy McCabe and #LasVegas or John Brennan and #SaudiArabiaInTurkey - these DIRTY, SKETCHY events are always where there is deep Democrat or Globonazi NARRATIVE CONTROL by the same Cankles World Order Dirtbags. This is Brennan's "WMD" lie.

Aaaand #Kavanaugh has returned answers for all these questions in a 263 page document. Put on some coffee and let's go through them. judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/…
Kavanaugh answers a question from @SenFeinstein about his use of the term "abortion-inducing drugs," which was tweeted about by Hillary Clinton and others. Only recounting plaintiff's assertions, he says.
Kavanaugh says his description of Roe v. Wade in a 2003 email was comments on the view of legal scholars, and "did not describe my own views."

#AalayahEastmond giving this testimony should give all America pause.
This is one of our children detailing a story we hear from seasoned military.
It's gutting, it's horrific, it's untenable.

Yet #Kavanaugh says that these weapons should be available to all.
#KavanaughHearings
"Remember all victims of #gunviolence....If Judge #Kavanaugh doesn't have the decency to shake the hand of the father of a victim of gun violence, he won't have the decency to protect us from gun violence."--#AalayahEastmond, #Parkland shooting survivor
#KavanaughHearings
ICYMI #AayalahEastmond, #Parkland survivor:
"If the youth across the country can fight to eradicate gun violence, why can't judges, lawmakers and Donald Trump understand that young people are dying from this senseless gun violence?"

I hope the #Kavanaugh confirmation hearing is total chaos.
#Kavanaugh not sworn in and we're one hour into hearing. I am excited about the chaos that has transpired thus far and not sorry for feeling this way. I expect Kavanaugh will be confirmed. If the hearing is a shit how, then it won't be a total waste of time. #ExcitedNotSorry

(1) Thread #4 about the #TaosCompound New Mexico case, starting 8/30/18.

Read my series of threads about this case:


NM has a GOP Governor with power to direct the state AG to take over the case from the small-town DA.

Facts > Speculation

#MAGA
(2) You're not helping #MakeAmericaGreatAgain by accepting the cherry picked talking points of either Democrats OR Republicans.

On the GOP side, we must clean up our act when it comes to reporting & discussing this case. It is serious!

Don't be a hypocrite. Use your brain.
(3) Trust me, I've heard everything people are saying about this case. And I have assembled the facts that correct the misinformation. Anyone can do this, I'm not special. It just takes an open mind & a couple of hours of searching online, & I've done most of it for you.

If you mention #MollieTibbetts and someone responds #NiaWilson, it is time to face some uncomfortable truths. First, please understand, the Democrat media machine coordinated and spoon fed them that talking point, *entirely* to silence you. Media doesn't care about either murder.
Let's look at the tragic murder of #NiaWilson. The killer was a career criminal. The crime rate of Oakland is off the charts. Homicide is 5X the national average. What do locals do about that? Democrats have run it since 1977.
Democrats & (mostly Democrat) Californians were so pleased with how Oakland has been run, they elected one of the Mayors for nearly ten years the current Governor! Democrat cities regularly suffer lousy education, poor mental health support, corrupt govt, corrupt cops...

Well Housatonic IT Services never really thought about it, but since you ask #Qanon , we would be happy to take a peak

Although it is biased (as described in #AboutStrzok)... and even edited by confessed pedophiles (dead serious... even people who discuss how they have fantasies of raping their own parents), we always have to start with @Wikipedia

Dammit ...

"While in college and later in law school, Avenatti worked at The Research Group, a political opposition research and media firm run by #RahmEmanuel (later White House Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama, and Mayor of Chicago)"

I think people who currently speak as wise commentators have absolutely NO idea how much of a generational sea-change is occurring in the human ability to shift ideas and actions to face climate change and other challenges. 1/X (sorry not sorry)
Older people feel comfortable centering preferences (utility theory!) and habits (eating meat, taking flying holidays ...) over planetary & common problems.

Younger people (my students, kids I know) prioritize principles and common good, and make choices accordingly. 2/X
They make principled choices often and openly despite convenience, personal advantage and taste. My kid gave up dairy milk overnight because of his love of the rain forest. My students/postdocs forgo career opportunities because they won't fly. 3/X
