🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.

🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD #BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.

I got an orange tattoo for my friend @fred_guttenberg whose daughter Jaime was shot & killed in the Parkland mass shooting. I didn't get the honor of meeting Jaime, but I've met Fred & I proudly stand with him. It's position right under Dawn's name!
#NeverAgain #NeverAgainMSD
The good pain of this tattoo is nothing compared to the never-ending pain Fred & his family have to now endure. This weekend is #WearOrange weekend & I thought it was fitting that I got an orange tattoo to start the weekend & to honor Jaime. #SurvivorStrong
After Jaime's murder, Fred started Orange Ribbons For Jaime which is a 501(C)(3) foundation whose purpose will be to support causes important to Jaime in life, but also causes that will deal with why her life was tragically cut short. orangeribbonsforjaime.org

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Inspired by the students of #NeverAgainMSD, let's contextualize #2A using the Heller decision and dissent: oyez.org/cases/2007/07-…
When summarizing #2A, many say it is “the right to bear arms” but that shorthand ignores the other 22 words, plus two heavily debated commas. In District of Columbia v. Heller on June 26, 2008, the Supreme Court decision supplanted centuries of precedents with this shorthand.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”

The preamble identifies the purpose of the amendment as the preservation of the militia. It is important to look at the preamble with historical context: contemporary State Declarations of Rights.

I love what you guys are doing. If any of you are aspiring journalists, I would look into the history of the NRA & why so much money started pouring in 1975-77. I’ll bet it was a PAC driven by the Koch Bros. w/ some innocuous name. Because if you think about it 1/
What do grey-haired, cigar smoking old guys that want smaller government (i.e. hate poor people) have in common with hunters, sportsmen and target shooters? Absolutely nothing. Why is this a partisan issue? It was artificially created as one. See this thread on how they 2/
turned climate change—which was supported by Republicans—into a circus.
