1/ The gun lobby wants us to believe that regulating guns will reduce gun ownership and is an overreach by the state.

Let's look at cars. At first, there were no rules or regulations. They could be built any which way. And anyone could drive them.

Then came the awful rules...
2/ Drivers had to register their intent to drive - the first driver's licenses. Then, OMG, they had to pass tests to get the license, indicating they had to know some rules. And this license put them into govt DB!

Surely, this killed the car!…
3/ Drivers tests became more and more strict, with higher and higher fees, and better, more interconnected govt DB.

Surely, this created an underground of unlicensed drivers? Protesting govt intrusion into their privacy and freedom to own property and free movement?

In churches across America today, his stump speech will be read aloud:
“Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.”
It’s a message filled w/ the resilience that makes real resistance possible—a revolutionary love ethic rooted in the conviction that I am somebody, no matter what the powerful say, b/c the God of the universe made me.

Notes from National Emergency, Day 2:

Things were cold, and dark. Until about 8am.

Then the sun came up. And I walked to the bagel store for breakfast.

On my way I encountered “others”.

Walking their dogs, pushing their strollers, going for a brisk run.

More to come.
Notes from National Emergency, Day 2:

It’s cold. And there’s bags of garbage everywhere.

Why? Because it’s trash day. And we recycle.

People separated their cardboard from their glass & their general waste. The horror.

Truly, a sight to behold.
