Seven years ago today, I stood at my kitchen counter in Indiana and created a Facebook page that became @MomsDemand. I never imagined we'd become one of the largest grassroots movements with hundreds of thousands of volunteers and, as part of @Everytown, 6 million supporters.
@MomsDemand @Everytown In the last seven years, @MomsDemand volunteers have passed more than 300 gun safety laws, including background checks in 21 states, red flag laws in 17 states, and laws that disarm domestic abusers in 28 states.
@MomsDemand @Everytown Every year @MomsDemand volunteers also defeat hundreds of @NRA-backed bills, with a win rate of over 90 percent against the gun lobby for five years in a row. These bills include arming teachers, forcing guns onto college campuses, Stand Your Ground, and permitless carry.

I’m joining gun violence prevention advocates in California today to remember #SandyHook victims and survivors - and all victims and survivors of gun violence - at the Third Baptist Church in San Francisco at 2pm. These are my remarks...
Seven years ago, the Sandy Hook shooting rocked our nation. I sat in my Indiana home – heartbroken and angry. Gun violence ripped through an elementary school, killing 20 first graders and six educators. My heart broke for the families devastated by this senseless tragedy.
And when my heart broke for Sandy Hook, it opened my eyes to the reality of American gun violence. As a stay-at-home mom of five, I had been living in a bubble. I hadn’t seen the trauma that other communities, particularly communities of color, had been living with for decades.

@abc7marccr @ABC7 I do not understand why news media needs to publish screenshots of the actual text messages.

@abc7marccr @abc7 effectively doxed a Saugus High School student. I realize that was not the intent, but including these screenshots was not necessary to tell the story.
@abc7marccr @ABC7 .@abc7marcc and @abc7 MUST DELETE the Tweet at the head of this string!

Have you learned nothing from #SandyHook and what those subhumans at InfoWars did to the victims and their families?!
@abc7marccr @ABC7 NO response yet from either @ABC7 nor @abc7marcc.

They must be too busy counting clicks to care that they doxed a #SaugusHS student in their rush to publish insufficiently redacted text messages.

Really good news - Lenny Pozner won his case against #SandyHook conspiracy theorists who insist his son (the youngest victim of the atrocity) never existed. I write about these ghouls in #TheIrrationalApe, so here's a short thread on why it matters (1/n)… recap, the 14th of December 2012 turned Sandy Hook into the epicentre of a conspiracy windmill, when 20 children between the ages of 6-7 and 6 staff members of the local elementary school were gunned down in cold blood. As I explain in the book... (2/n)
..the massacre captured the world's attention, and you'd be forgiven for thinking that compassion for the victims and their families would be natural. But alas, no - immediately, a vicious cohort emerged who claimed Sandy Hook was a conspiracy designed to take their guns (3/n)

This is Judy Woodruff, I'm excited to be taking over the @NewsHour @Twitter account during tonight's #DemDebate we go!
@Twitter .@BernieSanders takes on Biden's remark that Sanders' plan will cost $ 3 1/2 trillion...says people will pay one way or another..we don't need a plan that provides $100 Billion a year to the pharmaceutical industry...which will be advertising here on ABC tonight"
@Twitter @BernieSanders now it is Biden's turn to answer: "people will end up paying 4% more on their income tax"'s not a bad idea if you like it; I don't like it"

#ElPasoShooting is now among the most deadly in US history
#LasVegas: 58 dead, 422 wounded
#PulseShooting, Orlando: 50 dead, 53 wounded
#VirginiaTech: 33 dead, 23 wounded
#SandyHook: 28 dead, 2 wounded
#SutherlandSprings: 26 dead, 20 wounded
#Parkland: 17 dead,17 wounded
Since the 2012 #SandyHook shooting there have been a quarter million gun-related deaths in the US with another 750k gun-related injuries.
Those numbers should shock everyone.
They shock the #CDC.

CDC Reports #GunViolence at All Time High…
I've always maintained that after #SandyHook America said guns mattered more than kids. 20 1st graders were murdered in their classroom & the US didn't pass a single law to stop it from ever happening again.
More than 7k kids have been shot & killed since.…

1/ The MSM aren't learning anything from their mistakes about #pizzagate and #qanon.
2/ I'm not going to get into the authenticity of the document - it may or may not be genuine. I don't know. I want to look at the report itself.

3/ "The document .. mentions #Pizzagate the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didn’t actually have a basement)."

a) Pizzagate did NOT claim that and b) it does have one.

1/ Big tech doesn't want people talking about Sandy Hook.

So let's ask some questions.

Just to annoy them.

2/ Why does the *exact* location of SHES appear in two separate Hollywood productions: The Dark Knight and Dream House?

Just a coincidence right?

3/ Why do social security records show that the shooter died the day *before* the tragedy? Isn't it a bit tricky to shoot up an elementary school when you're already dead?

Why am I, a devout Catholic woman - who goes to church every Sunday - Pro-Choice?

I love life.
I believe life starts at conception.
I would never have an abortion - even if I sacrificed my own life for the baby.

I would choose to have the child.
So - why don’t I support the “Pro-Life” political stance????!!

Because - it is not pro-life.
When it comes to universal health care - the GOP largely does not support the Affordable Care Act - which would provide health care for everyone and would save hundreds of thousands of lives.

I've been hearing a lot of resignation in people's voices and tweets, in the face of the latest tragedy at #PowaySynagogueShooting. People are giving up hope that we can ever bend the curve on our #gunviolence epidemic.

--This thread is dedicated to destroying that despair.—
6 years ago, we watched those babies walk out of #SandyHook - & were torn apart, as a nation, by the memory of those who didn't make it.

Many of us had been told that we "couldn't" talk about guns.

But after Sandy Hook, many of us said "no more; we will not be silent."
A few bravely started talking and writing about why #gunviolence was a #publichealth issue. Those few, turned into a wave. The groundwork was slowly laid.

1-When #SandyHook Dad, Jeremy Richman killed himself on Monday I decided that, tho I don't deal w local news much, since I live close to Newtown, with gk's in that school system, I'm going to stay on the Alex Jones case reporting. Hereare a couple of things. #ThursdayThoughts
2-The deadline in the defamation suit filed against Alex Jones by 4 Sandy Hook families that he's tormented (including the Richmans)-for Jones to turn over >40K emails is 3/2. Jones is trying to get the suit dismissed-& he can't argue that w/o the emails.…
3-Recently @ one of Alex Jones' fav restuarants in Houston, he was ridiculed & called names by other customers. It's not clear if he got them going (kinda his thing) or they just let him have it, but here's the video. Of course, he railed @ it on Infowars…

Have you noticed that the only time #mentalhealth ever really enters the national conversation is when it’s being used as a scapegoat for violence? [Thread]
This despite the fact persons w/ mental health conditions are significantly more likely to be victims of violence, including gun violence, than perpetrators.

This despite the fact most Americans don’t have access to quality mental health care services & programs.
As we struggle w/ the heartbreaking news of 2 #MSDStrong students—Sydney Aiello, a 2018 grad/FAU student, & Calvin Desir, a sophomore at MSD—and Jeremy Richman, father of #SandyHook victim Avielle Richman, dying by suicide, we must discuss our national mental health crisis.

Warner: 'Enormous evidence' of contacts between Trump campaign and Russia

The top Democrat on Senate Intelligence Committee says Trump campaign's contact with Russians during 2016 was historically unprecedented.

"... there's no one who can factually say there isn't plenty of evidence of collaboration or comms between the Trump Org & RUs,”.

“I have never seen a presidential campaign, from a person of either party, have this much outreach to a foreign country.” Warner said.

I wake up to this AT LEAST three times a week. @TwitterSafety- how did you determine that this does not violate terms of service? How is this not targeted harassment? Do your job. Stop giving crazy a home. Absolutely terrible. #sandyhook
I’d like to know exactly in what “context” it’s okay to harass victims of tragedy, you dopes.
And let the record show that you don’t see Isaiah on that stage for exactly THIS reason. We knew he’d be obviously identifiable & folks would be using this image years later. Unconscionable.

Saturday is a good day for #Zionism studies ( and related topics ) with Michael Collins Piper… How does " they will make you beg for a police state " grab you? Mike mentions this in Entry #9 where a guest heard the prediction 3 decades prior. 👮🐵🍻
Carrying on with entry #10 - Feb 14, 2006 ❤ Victor Thorn chimes in here via ☎ Victor died young in 2016, not long after this interview with Texe Marrs. He had written a book about Hillary Clinton called " Crowning Clinton " Interesting listen. 🎧💁🙊🍻
Listening to entry #13 of Mike's radio shows. Mike is dead as you know. This is very relaxing radio for me, much like watching goldfish doing their thing. Part of the attractiveness of the show is Mike's call in listerners. These are serious students of history & Zionism, etc 🍻

People at risk of harming others or themselves show signs before #GunViolence or self-harm happens:

—Fascination/obsession with guns
—Extreme isolation
—Social withdrawal
—Victim of long-term bullying
—Hints about an attack
—Threats of violence


6 years ago today, a gunman armed with an AR-15 assault weapon, shot through the locked entrance of #SandyHook elementary in Newtown, CT and murdered twenty 1st graders & 6 teachers.

We said #NeverAgain

The killer had

Catch that? #SandyHook & MSD share a horrific gun violence tragedies anniversary today.

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.
