Getting a haircut and a little light reading. Been hearing good things from reform minded NRA members about this book by @timkmak

#nra Image
Mak begins with a claim he has made before, no better documented here than elsewhere, that the NRA is "America's most powerful advocacy group." A well-reported book doesn't need this kind of unsubstantiated hyperbole. Just say the NRA is powerful. This is undisputed #nra #misfire Image
Ch. 1: Wayne. Unflattering portrait of a leader as a "clumsy, meek, spastic man with a weak handshake." I do object to Mak's characterization of WLP as having a "professorial demeanor."

1/9 I've had enough of #Elxn44 depravity. A death threat was broadcast about me by a podcaster you all listen to. Daily there are men on Twitter #SnitchTagging me to gun nuts to spark confrontation

#FYI I've already been shot by a 357 Magnum & I will not be intimidated by anyone
2/9 Most of you want the difficult reporting on dangerous topics that keep you up at night. But on social media, there's this trend where some of you (too many of you) throw female reporters at your enemies, as if we're virtual human shields you've nominated to fight your battles
3/9 But as you 'get your popcorn' to spectate at the events you've chosen for us to do battle, against the very entities you're afraid of, some of them try to track us down in our communities. I've had calls to my home from Yellow Vesters, Wexiters, Qanons, you name it

Il Congresso USA ha approvato due misure per maggiori controlli sull'acquisto di #armi. Background check (verifica che non vi siano motivi ostativi) e maggior tempo per FBI valutare l’idoneità (da 3 a 10 giorni). Ma dovranno passare l'esame al Senato. 1/3

Se fossero stati in vigore si sarebbe potuta evitare la strage nella chiesa di Charleston, dove il suprematista bianco Dylann Roof uccise 9 persone. A lamentarsi, come sempre, è la lobby delle armi #NRA che definisce i controlli "restrizioni dei diritti"! nraila.org/articles/20210…
Positivo, invece, il giudizio delle associazioni che da anni sono attive per chiedere maggiori controlli sulle vendite di armi. Tra queste la @GiffordsCourage fondata dall'ex deputata @GabbyGiffords che fu sparata e ferita da un #legaledetentorediarmi.

Marx had postulated that 'force is the midwife of every old society pregnant with a new one'
— MUHOOZI KAINERUGABA

✳️ Excerpt from book 'Battles of the Ugandan resistance: A tradition of #Maneuver'

#TraditionOfManeuver
It is the ambiguity about the role of individuals in the making of history that presents the greatest problem with the deterministic notions inherent in Marxism's conception of history.

— MUHOOZI KAINERUGABA

✳️ 'Battles of the Ugandan resistance'
#TraditionOfManeuver
For Gen Tumwine, mental preparation in terms of sharpening convictions and demonstrating victory is possible, is much more important than the amount of arms one has access to initially. It is people who win wars not weaponry.

This is an especially stupid argument...

There's a bunch of things wrong here, let's go point by point.

First off, the gun homicide rate in US is lowest in states with highest gun ownership. Image
Interestingly enough, Wyoming has a murder rate the same as right across the border in more gun-controlled Canada...about a third of the US as a whole.

BC factors giving Canada a low murder rate give Wyoming a low murder rate...and those don't include lower gun ownership.
Similarly, there are many US states that combine very low firearm ownership with very high murder rates.

The highest "state" murder rate in the country is that of Washington, DC, which has a murder rate of 21.8, more than twenty times that of Wyoming

RANT! This EFING INFURIATES ME!!! Top pic is the peaceful protestors & they are def. peacful - heads down, fists in the air, pic of Breonna Taylor. Bottom 2 pix are the PEA BRAINS that believe they need to bring LONG GUNS to a PEACEFUL protest, which is our *1st* constituional
right (not the *2nd*). Who do these glassbowls think they are that they have any right to interfere w/the ppl's right to free speech/protest? I have to wonder how many of them have criminal convictions on them & aren't even SUPPOSED to have guns, like the 2 idiots who drove from
Missouri to Kenosha to "take action" if they needed to. These PEA BRAINS don't seem to know that one of the reasons that they can even HAVE guns is to oppose a TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT!!! Do they even know who that is??? They should be informed that PEACEFUL PROTESTERS do NOT

I welcome the #CabinetDecision of setting up of an autonomous body called #NationalRecruitmentAgency which will facilitate a Common Eligibility Test for over 1.25 lakh Central Govt vacancies in Group B & C every year through IBPS,SSC & RRB in which 2.5 to 3 crore people appear.
CET will be a tier 1 test, completely online and scores will be available to the candidates immediately after the exam.

Scores will be valid for 3 years. Based on scores, candidates can appear for a next level exam.

#CabinetDecisions
A viability gap funding #VGF will be provided for the 117 aspirational districts for connectivity & infrastructure to conduct these exams.

I am starting with the recommendations.

This part is interesting:

One of the ways foreign actors influenced the election was through “a private entity intertwined with the structures of democracy.”

This has to do with Flynn, who lied to the FBI about subverting the acting President’s foreign policy, which he also did not take notes about because he knew what he was doing was problematic.

#NRA supporters are passionately arguing for their right to be defrauded by millionaire grifters to own the libs.
You want an org to lobby for gun rights? Cool. You can go incorporate one anywhere today. But if you're upset that the #NYAG is going after *this* org, maybe stop liking Trump's LAW AND ORDER tweets. This org is using tax-exempt status to funnel *your* $ into their pockets.
You want to subsidize #WayneLaPierre 's lifestyle? Cool too, I guess. Send him a check. I don't care to subsidize *your* love for this particular arms dealer through the Tax Code.

K thanks bye.
