🧵 Lot of interest in gun raffles these days. I was interviewed yday by @wsoctv in CLT about one for a youth baseball team in Bessemer City, NC. It was a very brief story so here are some addtl thoughts.

(1) Raffles are legal. Guns are legal. Combing the two is legal. All legitimate gun raffles, including the one in NC, require winners to pass a background check in order to take possession of the gun.
(2) Charities raffle things that people value to incentivize donations. E.g., despite the harm it causes in society many groups use alcohol raffles to raise money for charity.

1/4 The war between #good and #evil is not one fought with #guns as much as evil wants it to be. It is a battle between #compassion and #selfishness, between the courage of vulnerability and the fear of others as ruthless competition. It is a struggle against selfishness in
2/4 order to grow, mature, build strength community and hope while serving the common good. Selfishness serves the ego, putting the individual above the group, with a zero-sum attitude that benefits the self only when others suffer or are harmed. The compassionate must unite in

GUN CONTROL REPORT: About to take a deep dive into the #ProtectOurKidsAct. Bill H.R.7910.
This will probably be a long post. If you'd like to really know what's in it stay tuned. #guns #guncontrol #2AShallNotBeInfringed
So they banned any type of gun for under 18 and under 21. It was done in a very odd way. First they ban all sub autos then follow it up with banning anything that is not a sub auto. It's like banning bananas and then banning everything that's not a banana. This is bananas. 🍌🍌
On the bright side they'll let 18 year olds weild weapons for the government. They made sure to include that.

#Taft #Massshooting #Chattanooga #Uvalde - @GovStitt @tedcruz @GovAbbott @BrianKempGA @USSupremeCourt @GOP @NRA, Wayne Lapierre, Bobo, MTG, why not get rid of your bodyguards, fences, etc., and replace with thoughts and prayers? Oh wait, you're afraid of gun nuts too?
@GovStitt @tedcruz @GovAbbott @BrianKempGA @USSupremeCourt @GOP @NRA 2/ @TheGoodLiars thanks Wayne LaPierre at the NRA Convention for all his thoughts and prayers. And how about we start naming #MassShootings for Republican leaders like we name hurricanes?
@GovStitt @tedcruz @GovAbbott @BrianKempGA @USSupremeCourt @GOP @NRA @TheGoodLiars 3/ #TexasMassacre #ProLifeMyAss - Cowards like Ted Cruz, Wayne LaPierre, @GLOCKInc are the problem. #Uvalde Massacre has 19 dead children and 2 dead adults. For gun nuts who fear criminals with guns, why not let them buy #Kevlar vests like they want the rest of us to have?

2/ #2ndAmendment #2A #AR15 The right to carry AR-15 high-capacity semi-automatics was never "original intent". The Constitution was never amended to permit them from being carried around concealed or in the open or in any other way. Activist judges slipped them through. So there. ImageImageImageImage

“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

The mass shooting in #Buffalo, right wing extremism on guns, and the takeover of the judiciary by leveraging abortion (per last week's thread) are connected. The connection is money. It fuels the complex right-wing network that captured the Court and props up politicians.
1/18
The network is complex and confusing by design. It makes the "All the President's Men" mantra of "follow the money" really hard. But here are just a *few* of the threads we do know about, and how they connect to #RoeVWade, #GunViolence, #SCOTUS, and white nationalism.

Start with Leonard Leo, who sits at the center of many more overlapping right-wing groups than even he can count (literally: "I have no idea how many groups I’ve been involved with over the years”). washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/… Here's a tiny portion (h/t @EXPOSEDbyCMD):

Horrific. A gunman wearing military-style clothing and body armor kills at least 10 people at a supermarket in #Buffalo, #NewYork#racism, misogyny, lax regulations and #gunviolence are interlinked. US policymakers are equally responsible! #endgunviolence apnews.com/article/buffal…
I live in upstate NY and visit the local #Topssupermarket — I have seen young men dressed as military personnel. The #Buffalo #shooting is just a chilling reminder that U.S. civilians own 400 million #guns —almost half of civilian held firearms globally.
120+ guns/ 100 residents
In 2015 @MotherJones published a special investigation detailing the cost of #gunviolence:$229 billion a year (2012 data). $8.6 billion in direct spending—emergency/medical care & $221 billion in “indirect” costs, quality of life of victims.

Buffalo Tops shooting; eight killed. AR-15 #2A Truth Social – You can't carry loaded #guns at #ShotShow (America's biggest gun show), #Glock, Mars-a-Lago, US Army bases, etc. (all places w/ lots of security) as they fear gun nuts! msn.com/en-us/news/cri…
2/ #2A #2ndAmendment - #NRA #SCOTUS / Supreme Court, legislators, executives, etc., for open carry, concealed carry, etc., must ensure THE EXACT SAME LAWS APPLY IN THEIR OFFICES, HOMES and at all times around them, and THEY MUST HAVE NO SECURITY. That’s how the rest of us feel.
3/ Texas, Georgia, etc., have enacted or will permit carry handguns without a license or training Why stop there? How about allowing anyone to drive, do brain surgery, teach school, fly an airliner or be a cop or governor? #GunSense #2A #Idiots #Trump twitter.com/i/events/14052…

On Gun Legislation ( a thread):

Our Children Should Not Have to Suffer and Die to Pander to the Machismo Fantasies and Cowardly Fears of a Minority.

.

What I always think of is the analogy with cars.

1/
People don't generally go around committing mass murder with autos. Sure, people get killed in auto accidents, but it is not intentional. And we all *need* autos for daily tasks, errands, and work (unlike guns) ... so if it is an "evil" it is a necessary one ... daily!

2/ #FBR
Yet, what of cars? We require registration of them, of the driver, licensing, and training. Why are guns exempt from safety concerns? Why? I'll tell you why ... bc of rednecks who need them to feel "manly" (i.e., machismo)...

#vegetableoil prices declined significantly (-5.7%) after hitting an all-time high in March under pressure from #palm, #sunflower and #soybean #oils.

In addition, #grain prices fell slightly (-0.4%), after also rising to all-time highs in March.

This project is almost two years in the making and is my interpretation of a modern-day London Best matched set of custom 9mm 2011 pistols. As you know, any matched pair must come with a case that would nestle the pistols and proper tools for what any gentleman/woman would need
to show up fully prepared for their duel or shooting range trip. I have always liked the historical idea of designing a matched pair of pistols; additionally, there is a reason why the practice started in the first place. I uniquely chose each feature to adapt best
to my disabilities, design sensibility, and intended uses. It made sense to have one carry version and one external training option/backup. The bag itself was a labor of love with Michael Noelle Leatherworx, who helps make the designs in my head manifest themselves into reality.

(Thread 1/4): Joined @CortesSteve and @JennPellegrino on @newsmax this evening - @GavinNewsom’s little band-aid bill is not going to make a difference towards crime. What is going to make a difference is if we stop electing ridiculous prosecutors who refuse to enforce our laws.
(2/4): Just like with #RecallGavinNewsom, billionaire money is funding the wrong side of recall efforts directed at prosecutors like @GeorgeGascon.
(3/4): The racial impact of #CriminalJustice issues is felt most negatively in low income and middle class communities. In San Francisco for example the violent crime wave has disproportionately hit the older Asian immigrant population.

So, for those of you who were expecting an update after I got shot last month, here it is...

First, I want to thank Dr. Mara Schenker (@maraschenker) and her staff at @GradyHealth for repairing my shattered ulna and inserting the metal brace that is getting it healed up.
@maraschenker @GradyHealth She’s done 3,000+ surgeries at the incredible Grady Hospital, many of which involved shootings. Somehow, she maintains this very sunny disposition. Here she is showing off her handiwork (I won't show the original wound...too gross). I'll be showing it off at the next ASC meeting.
Here’s a report of the shooting. Misspelled my name (and let everyone know I'm 55 years old). Contrary to popular opinion, I wasn't out collecting ethnographic data for one of my projects studying criminal decision-making. I was shopping for potting soil.

Was just thinking there were few mass shootings during the pandemic.

Unfortunately, it looks like we're getting "back to normal" now.

This thread has some of my thoughts on mass shootings, #guns , & #GunReform through the years:

"...while a few mass shooters in history have had serious mental illnesses, the more typical shooter has experienced the kind of milder difficulties with mood, anxiety, and social interactions with which most of us have some personal familiarity."

NEW: The Michigan Capitol Commission, in a sudden reversal, voted unanimously Monday to ban the open carry of guns inside the Michigan Capitol, effective immediately. Story coming to @freep #mileg #guns
Critics say the ban does not go far enough and the carry of all firearms, whether they are carried openly or concealed, should be banned by anyone who is not law enforcement.
Here is our story about the action the MI Capitol Commission took today to ban the open carry of firearms inside the state Capitol. bit.ly/3i4kG7C

“MEANWHILE IN TRUMPTON” – THE TRUMPTON CHRONICLES
A tale of ruthless ambition, relentless greed and undying stupidity.

#DonaldTrump
#TheTrumptonChronicles
Once upon a time, a long time ago, a wealthy family in the village of Trumpton came into possession of an unwelcome child.

The infant knew he was unwelcome from the moment he emerged from his mother’s thighs and opened his mouth to bleat in orange-faced despair.

2/-
His uncaring parents named him DONALD JOHN TRUMP.

He was born with a grudge in his heart and a chip on his shoulder.
He was GOING TO GET EVEN.
He was going to become THE BIGGEST IDIOT the village of Trumpton had ever seen….
