What does GOP policy protect: Our kids or the guns?

GOP policy protects the guns.

At the expense of our children's lives.
The GOP LOOSENS gun laws after shootings:

“Seven of the deadliest mass shootings in the history of the US happened in the past decade.

And four of those shootings, including the Uvalde shooting, happened in Texas."

You know how those Uvalde cops stood around & did NOTHING...

while the children of Robb Elementary were being gunned down?

The GOP is preventing gun safety laws from even being discussed...

while American children are being gunned down.

Lo ripete 11 volte, Joe #Biden.

Perché sia chiaro che questa volta non sarà come tutte le altre. Parla ad un'America ferita, ancora sconvolta dalla strage di Uvalde. E assicura: "Basta".
Ha trascorso ore con familiari distrutti, "la cui vita non sarà più la stessa". E che "avevano un messaggio per tutti noi: per l'amor di Dio, fate qualcosa". Eppure "non è stato fatto nulla. Questa volta non può essere vero. Questa volta dobbiamo fare davvero qualcosa".
#Biden è consapevole dell'ostilità che un intervento restrittivo in materia di armi incontrerà in un'ampia fetta della società, ma precisa: "Il Secondo Emendamento, come tutti gli altri diritti, non è assoluto. (...) I diritti non sono illimitati".

Opinion: Tired of prayers and moments of silence

Violence in America is nothing new... in the last decade or so it’s risen to a level rarely witnessed since Jim Crow and the Klan.…
Milton wrote in Paradise Lost:

“First Moloch, horrid king besmear’d with blood

Of human sacrifice, and parents teares,

Though, for the noise of drums & timbrells loud

Thir childrens cries unheard, that past through fire

To his grim Idol.”
"The violent horrors visited upon America, upon mothers and children, tears unseen, cries unheard, cannot simply be blamed on isolated “unhinged” people."

The following is from my buddy, now a pastor, once a cop, some very needed perspective on the #UvaldeMassacre “While I do find the sudden outbreak of mass shootings very suspicious in our political situation I do have some observations from my time in Law Enforcement: (continued)
1) While it seems counter intuitive; the scariest time for officers to get stuck in a loop of not acting is when there are a large number of officers present. I know of incidents where officers were clearly justified in shooting someone but no one did. In my opinion… /cont.
when a large number of officers are on scene you dont want to be the person that makes a bad decision so often times everyone is waiting on someone to make the first move. If a solo officer or a couple are on scene they typically will act faster because they are relying… /cont.

🧵THREAD: Small request in light of the #UvaldeMassacre.
We are all mourning. Grieving. Angry. Some are less shocked than others. At this time, I would like to direct your attention to the episode I did with @Julia_VIOO (#35) about the great work she is doing with the @voteinorout project.
Julie decided to create the site — a place to hold politicians accountable — because of her personal connection to the Parkland shooting and her belief that the students who rose up in protest of that event just needed the right tool. Please listen to the episode for more info.

A thread of four observations from #UvaldePolice, but that apply in general.

1) The #1, deeply ingrained and trained priority of the police is to protect themselves and each other, not the public. 1/4
2) The massive amount of money and time spent on police militarization isn't just a waste, it's actively counterproductive. It turns them into 3rd rate soldiers with no clear command structure, all the worst traits of the military combined with the worst instincts of cops. 2/2
3) The police lie, they lie automatically and instinctively, and only hard pressure from the public and the media, backed up by physical evidence including video, will move them off their lies. Imagine the lies they get away with when there isn't a nation's attention on them? 3/3

At Discovery Green across the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston where people have gathered to protest the NRA’s annual convention set to take place there following the Robb Elementary School schooting in Uvalde, Texas earlier this week.
Follow me for updates from the protest and @chron!
There is heavy police presence outside of the convention center across from where people are protesting. Not seeing much police on the side where most protesters are. #NRAconvention

[Thread] 1/ Below is a fake account that is part of a pro-Beijing and (at times) pro-Kremlin propaganda network that is currently tweeting about the #Uvalde shooting. The modus operandi is fairly similar > criticise US foreign policy or amplify divisive social issues in the US Image
2/ At the moment it has amplified news of the shooting. Other accounts are providing 'contextual' information to highlight related social problems in the US. I.e. One fake account below is showing an infographic about 'tragic' causes of death in the US #Uvalde #disinformation ImageImageImage
3/ , including 'bullets'. The network has shared videos and other information about shootings in the past. Below is one of the embedded videos about US gun violence in both Mandarin and English. The voiceover is in English, although sped up. #UvaldeMassacre

“Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” said Javier Cazares, whose daughter was killed in the 40-minute #RobbElementary school massacre in #Uvalde

This footage shows armed police pinning one man to the ground
The @nytimes reports that the gunman who killed 19 children & 2 teachers at #RobbElementary was rptdly inside the school for “ROUGHLY AN HOUR” hour before police shot him

The real outrage though, is the failure of successive US govts to introduce #GunReform.
#GunControlNow #guns
N.B. - I chose to post this video only after careful deliberation

Posting videos of families in such horrific circumstances should be avoided wherever possible

However, since no faces are clearly visible & since what the footage reveals is important, I took the decision to post

La First Lady, Jill, è vestita interamente di nero. Nessuno meglio di lei, insegnante, è in grado di cogliere la portata della strage di #Uvalde, #Texas, dove il 18enne Salvador Ramos ha ammazzato a colpi di arma da fuoco 19 bambini e due adulti.
Prima di prendere la parola, Joe #Biden emette un lungo sospiro. Ha la voce rotta, gli occhi pieni di lacrime: l'empatia è sempre stato il suo tratto distintivo in politica: "Buona sera, cari americani. Avevo sperato, diventando presidente, di non doverlo fare di nuovo".
Si riferisce ad un'altra carneficina, quella della Sandy Hook, avvenuta dieci anni prima, quando il 20enne Adam Lanza aveva sparato alla madre prima di recarsi presso la scuola elementare di Newtown, Connecticut, e uccidere 26 persone, fra cui 20 bambini tra i 6 e 7 anni.

“What is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution? …What is wrong with having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend?”
Joint Chiefs Chair General Mark Milley
“Guaranteeing the right to vote and ensuring every vote is counted has always been the most patriotic thing we can do… John Lewis said, ‘Freedom is not a state; it is an act.’ …We WILL act… For our democracy, for America itself, we MUST act.” @JoeBiden
Tom Brady: “Not a lot of people think that we could have won. And in fact I think about 40% of the people still don't think we won.”

President Biden: “I understand that.
