Trump in Talks With Key Senators on Gun Control Bill – Prepper Life Style prepperlifestyle.org/trump-in-talks…
@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

No #RedFlagLaws 🚩 #Congress.
The laws are already in place. Liberal Judge's PC B💩S keeps the records of insane people's threats off government records. I believe in 1st Amendment rights, but you can't holler fire or bomb in a theater or make threats on anyone. #MassShootings 🙏
Federal Firearms prepurchase form filled out by firearms purchasers. Criminal records, drug use and mental illness all covered. More laws will not stop the "MONSTERS ".
#RedFlagLaws🚩 only open the door to false accusations against anyone made by anyone anytime. 1 phone call & 🚔
Millions of people have died in the name of "SAFETY" over "LIBERTY".
America is such a great nation because we have the right to self defense. This situation we find ourselves in is about #Democrats "CONTROL OF THE PEOPLE". #GunControl = No guns = 💀.
NO #RedFlagLaws 🚩@POTUS

1) Two shootings.

Immediate politically motivated, reactionary, responses from the #Leftist minority.

Two Leftwing radicals found 2be the culprits, that is, if the disbursed facts(?) are true.

As per tired, aged #OldGuard playbook, the grandstanding 4 #GunControl began before
2) the casings were cold.

Next, the spin began...

#8chan became the focal point of allegedly intelligent, well versed, research persons in media(?), politics & more. A narrative, that this was a grooming ground for these #HomeGrownTerrorist's, ensued.

#FakeNews stated, likely
3) knowingly, in the least due 2a profound ignorance of #8chan, that the #ElPasoShooter had filed his "Manifesto" there. This, as is known now, is a fabrication, doubtlessly created 2drive talking points that repeatedly become core motivators, catalysts, of hatred parroted by

If Dan Crenshaw is the future of the Republican Party, we're f*cked !

Prove me wrong.
I've seen him virtue signal way too many times. He is trying to push a bill #hr1044 that will give thousands of good tech jobs to Indian foreign nationals. Now he's willing to compromise on #GunControl. He is a well spoken, younger version of John McCain.
Ron Desantis and Donald Trump Jr are the future of our party. These men never apologize to the mob .

I want to have an honest discussion about the AR15, AK47’s and #massshootings.

I’ll tell you from the viewpoint of a Marine, with extensive training on these weapons, how they elevate violence, are terrible for selfdefense, and shouldn’t be on our streets.
#ElPaso #Dayton
If we’re talking about personal security, whether in your home, your store, or out on the street— nothing is more effective than a can of bear spray.

The last thing I’d reach for is a long rifle or a handgun.

So the idea of “self defense”
as a reason to own them is ridiculous.
As someone with more weapons training than most Americans, I know how firearms can fail you in a rushed response to a threat.

And anyone who’s on drugs, who might be immune to bear spray, would also take several shots from a firearm— even if they’re well-placed.

As an American, as a Texan, as a person of mixed race with an Hispanic family, and as a scientist, I turned my anger and sadness from these weekend’s mass shootings into an opportunity to take a closer look into the public health epidemic of #GunViolence in the United States.
A diverse melting pot of people and ideas, our country sets the stage for a natural experiment across state lines in which we can use the variation across states to actually test ideas and hypotheses, including the effects of guns and gun laws on gun violence.
Common assertions are that guns do not cause violence, people do; the way to stop bad people with guns is good people with guns; and strict gun laws are ineffective at stopping gun violence because people will find a way to get them.

Did you know that growing up in east Oakland, many people I knew owned a gun ? The problem is that almost all of them were illegal.

The most violent cities in America with the most gun violence are Democrat run cities with very strict #GunControl
Every single rapper glorifies guns and gun violence. Every. Single. One. Their videos are full of people showing off their guns. Yet Democrat politicians use these same people to campaign on their behalf . You think these people are NRA members or do they buy illegal guns? 🤔
Hillary Clinton and Hussein Obama actively seek this guys approval. A violent white man who loves his guns..... Oh wait , hold up. My bad .

for all of the well-intentioned liberals calling for Extreme Gun Control Now, consider for .2 seconds how these regulations will disproportionately impact Black and Brown communities, which are already occupied by a militaristic police force that will stop at nothing to have (1/
as many black and brown bodies in jail as humanly possible. also consider who this legislation will NOT be impacting - white men. there are obviously common sense measures that should be pursued ASAP, but this will end up being War on Drugs 2.0 if oppressed communities (2/
aren’t at the forefront of this discussion. i promise you cops aren’t going to be coming to Suburbia to take away the guns of middle and upper class white america. they will be targeting communities of color and adding even more Black and Brown bodies to our prison system (3/

@Kris_Sacrebleu We should expect a ‘rhyming’ of our mid-19th century era surrounding our Civil War.
The #GOP (POTrump-#Republicans) shall end, leaving a blessed ‘conservative power drought’ lasting about as long as the Lincoln-to-Arthur 24-yr. GOP dominant era; we’ve no time for conservatism.

@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼There will be far too much to prosecute, legislate for, and plan if we are to last another century.
Do NOT expect assassinations. Do expect continued domestic terror and prodding from, . . . wait for it . . . —RUSSIA.
The thing yoking America today, 👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼 as much as slavery once did, is the scourge of #PartyPolitics which bred corporate control via sponsorship; #Democrats thankfully do acknowledge this, so look for the Dems to do the one thing they do best: self-dismantle their own power through #ElectionReform, 👇🏼

Let’s be clear: the exclusionary, white supremacist vision of the US has consistently produced some of our most horrific acts of violence & domestic terrorism. Native American massacres & genocides, as early as the Mystic Village massacre of 1636.

#SaturdayThoughts on the #walmartshooting:

1 of 3

You must to stop listening to the media.

Pay close attention to the pattern of these events, & use that blob in your skull for more than just entertaining your selfish desires.

These shootings are right out of their playbook.
2 of 3

- Accuse the new leader of treason. #Russia did not work. They are exposed.

- Quick! Get the anti-white #Squad in front. Impact minimal.

- The "tribe" is full of pedos, #Epstein exposed.

- Quick! Play the #racist card! Oh no, our plant accused a Cuban Democrat, shit!
3 of 3

- Quick, the debates are up, let's push the "free shit for everyone, especially #illegals", we need the votes!

- Complete 🤡 show. Low AF ratings.

- What next?

- #Massshooting. Fear tactics. Blame the white man. Blame #Trump.

Prey on the weak.

Every. Single. Time. 👌

.@PeteButtigieg's quotes from the debate, a long thread. Divided into differently lengthened segments for your reading delight. #DemDebates #DemDebate2 #TeamPete
"I'm running for president because our country is running out of time. It is even bigger than the emergency of the Trump presidency. Ask yourself how somebody like Donald Trump ever gets within cheating distance of the Oval Office in the first place. 1/5
"It doesn't happen unless America is already in a crisis -- an economy that's not working for everyone, endless war, climate change. We have lived this in my industrial Midwestern hometown. My generation has lived this as long as we have been alive. 2/5

If Americans want to cut down on gun violence they have to force #Congress to fund the #ATF!

Additional firearm legislation is not only a violation of our Constitutional Rights, it will not reduce gun violence! #2ndAmendment

#GunControl does not include violating our rights!
#Congress must work for the American people and not corporate greed and lobbyists. They must fund the #ATF and require inspections of firearms dealers annually while also allowing re-inspection when they are found in violation of US Laws.
Congress is knowingly under funding the #ATF which prevents them from enforcing current US laws. Any representative insisting on additional legislation without properly funding the ATF is attacking our Constitutional Rights & using gun violence as a means to do it.

.@shannonrwatts, if u read More Guns, Less Crime (Univ of Chicago Press, 2010 3rd ed), u would know that the most vulnerable people benefit the most from owning guns: the most likely victims of violent crime (poor blacks) & those weaker physically (women & elderly).
#2A @NRA @gun
Gun control advocates are the racists, sexists, & don't want poor owning guns. When you have discretionary permits, gun control advocates give permits to wealthy, white men. Not those who need them. See LA.
crimeresearch.org/2017/07/concea…
You want only wealth.
thehill.com/blogs/pundits-…
Why do you, @MomsDemand & @Everytow hate the poor?
"In 2013, all but two Democrats in the Colorado House of Representatives voted against a Republican amendment to exempt impoverished individuals from a new tax on private transfers of guns."

There are many dubious arguments in regards to gun control and blatant red herrings. I thought I would capture the most common and write appropriate responses (read through)…. #guncontrolnow #neveragain #nra #gunsense #Guncontrol #2A
“The government wants to take my guns.”

No.. no.. no they don’t. Besides, have you even thought about the logistics of such an operation? Who’s coming? Police? Military? No, they wouldn’t give up their guns. Maybe Obama will come knock on your door and ask nicely.
“I don’t want to register my guns because the government will know what I have.”

You are paranoid. Switzerland has one of the highest gun ownership rates in Europe and they register. Registering will create greater accountability and provide better tracking to solve crimes.
