Gun Issue About More Than Guns

Support for gun sales is about making money

The NRA and its political sycophants have shown that they would rather sacrifice children to the high priests than ban the kinds of automatic rifles and handguns that no individual has any need to own. Just as our first amendment rights are not unlimited, the second amendment right is not unlimited.

Almost two-thirds of those were backed by the NRA. A good man with a gun can stop a bad man with a gun. People will forget all about it, until the next mass shooting. Guns for teachers? Pay incentives for teachers to carry guns? The greatest barriers to change we have are the representatives we've elected to enact the laws we want. In the 20 years since passage there have been no mass shootings in Australia. Now, the current Australian Ambassador to the US, he recently tweeted it can't happen here because "guns are more pervasive and cultural" in the United States.

That's far fewer than the number backed by the NRA, but advocates for restricting access to firearms don't see things that way.

It is considering excluding them from some of its portfolios and is asking how they monitor safe use of weapons.

Since Sandy Hook, states such as Colorado, Delaware, New York, Oregon and Washington have expanded background checks for gun purchases. They darn well know, as do we, that whatever Trump says at any given moment is merely symptomatic of the mush between his ears. Almost 30 states now have similar laws, and OR passed a similar bill last month.

Organizers said more than 300 other related events are being organised in support of the march both in the United States and overseas.

'We've Bought More Apple than Anything Else', Says Warren Buffett
If the formula changes, Berkshire would buy back its stock at a higher price than the current formula allows. Delta is the most expensive, with a market value of almost $40 billion. "I was expecting more", Fox said.

Under the Constitution, the laws of this country are to be created by acts of Congress. "Whereas we're getting laws that we think are extremely impactful in states like Alabama and Louisiana". The freedom to kill scores of people in seconds?

Two-thirds of Americans now support stricter gun control laws, polls have found. Only five percent of the gun-rights advocacy group's funding comes from the firearms industry, with the majority of its financial support originating from small donations. Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo, a Democrat, signed a "red flag" executive order this week that keeps guns away from people "who pose a danger to themselves and others".

The Giffords group gave half the states an F for gun safety laws.

The world's biggest investment management firm, BlackRock Inc, is stepping up pressure on companies that make and sell guns in response to the Florida school shooting. The Las Vegas gunman used a bump stock to quickly shoot more than 500 people.

I am writing in response to your article, "Area schools superintendents "disturbed" by Florida shooting", published on February 23. The official said Trump's comment was likely a reference to such a bill. He came to her aid and is credited with helping save her life. He also raised eyebrows by suggesting police should "take" guns from potentially unsafe people, then "go through due process second".
