We desperately need #GunReform laws in the U.S. #MassacreMitch has an A+ rating by the NRA, & has taken $ MILLIONS, ensuring no gun laws pass.

R’s are handmaidens to the gun lobby, ensuring thousands die yearly, so long as they get #NRABloodMoney. courier-journal.com/story/news/pol…
Now #MassacreMitch has stated he will only allow a Senate vote on #GunReform laws IF #VeryStableGenius is guaranteed to sign it. He wants to be absolved of any responsibility.

What.

A.

Leader.
These deaths are on his hands though. He requests to be known as the Grim Reaper on passing legislation. He certainly lives up to the name.

The NRA is in Republicans’ pocketbooks as well as ears, telling them how to spread fear & lies about guns to the public.

We know better.

One of the bills sitting untouched in the Senate because the gun lobby objects to it is the Violence Against Women Renewal Act of 2019.

It's important to understand what #VAWA does to see just how much the @NRA has corrupted @senatemajldr. Thread (1/7)
#VAWA expired in 2018 after the @GOP leadership in both the House and the Senate refused to take it up. Originally enacted in the 1990s, studies showed that "the rate of intimate partner violence against females declined 53% between 1993 and 2008" (2/7)

#VAWA required reauthorization every 5 years. For more than two decades, this was accomplished, with improvements made along the way.

Until 2018, when two common-sense changes to the bill sent the gun lobby into a tizzy and the @GOP refused to reenact it. (3/7)

Few things annoy me more than Americans' naive belief in their alleged "checks & balances." Face it! Trump controls the executive as the "grownups" have turned out to be a bunch of cowards unwilling to criticize the "sitting president" (cf Jim Mattis).
2. Next, the naivists point to the Congress, but the Senate agenda & thus the Congress as a whole is controlled by one man, the @senatemajldr commonly recognized as #MoscowMitch and #MassacreMitch since Russian & NRA funding seem to be his sole driving forces.
3. The third leg is the Supreme Court, which has a GOP majority of 5-4, which determined the presidential election in 2000. Our only hope is Chief Justice John Roberts, who seems to be the last powerful man in Washington who stands for some values, but for how long?

@senatemajldr is upset people are calling him names. 1st: “Moscow Mitch” (b/c he refuses to do anything to stop RU interference in US elex), & 2nd: “MassacreMitch” & “MurderTurtle” (b/c he refuses to take up gun-violence legislation despite massacre after massacre).

Fake news & SOCMED posts are such a threat to US security that the Defense Dept is launching a project to repel “large-scale, automated disinformation attacks,” as @senatemajldr blocks efforts to protect the integrity of elections

1/Gun violence occurs in all 50 states regularly (suicides, murder, accidental discharge etc). Mass murder by assault weapons escalated when the 1994 ban expired in 2004. A 2019 study shows mass shooting fatalities were 70% less likely when that ban was in place. #MassacreMitch
2/ What the Dem Controlled House has done?
The House passed 2 gun control bills: Bipartisan Background
📌Checks Act of 2019 (H.R. 8)
📌Enhanced Background Checks Act (H.R. 112)
#texasshooting
3/ What has the @HouseGOP and @SenateGOP done on gun control? Zilch, Nada, Squat. As y'all know Mitch McConnell has refused to bring either bill to the floor. One bill is supported by 90% of Americans. Even if it goes to the floor the @SenateGOP might not pass it. #MoscowMitch

🔥TAKE ACTION AGAINST THE @NRA‼️
The NRA is listed as a tax-exempt organization w the IRS, but their activities disqualify them for this designation‼️

“There is no reason that we have to accept this as our fortune. And yet functionally, right now, we have.” @BetoORourke

There IS a reason that Americans keep dying: @SenateMajLdr McConnell and the @SenateGOP's legislative graveyard. #MassacreMitch #GunReformNow
Texas’ second mass shooting in August kills at least 7 people, injures 19 including a 17-month-old baby and 3 law enforcement officers washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
The suspect was a white male in his mid-30s.

The #BlueLivesMatter folks have been uncharacteristically quiet, despite the fact that three LEO were wounded in the latest gun rampage.

A THREAD OF WEE NEWS NUGGETS...
2/ A California man went on a stabbing rampage that left four dead and two wounded. Expect minor coverage of this from the mediahyenas.
3/ The NRA is warning Trump that his stated support for red-flag laws and expanding background checks to cover individual sales will backfire among his base. I get the same sense from following commentary on social media on the issue.

Trump - Less than 3 weeks ago:

REPORTER: Does it concern you that many people saw that tweet as racist + that white nationalist groups are finding common cause with you on that point?

TRUMP: "It doesn't concern me because many people agree with me."
Trump: "I will do whatever is necessary to stop an invasion of our country. That's what it is."
(April 2019)

Trump
March 2019

After the Christchurch NZ massacre - asked if he thinks white nationalism is a rising threat

Trump: "I don't, really. I think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems."
