To change gun laws, change Congress



To change gun laws, change Congress

Every country has people with mental illness and serious emotional problems, a smaller percentage with violent tendencies.
But, aside from lawless nations confronting anarchy,
the United States stands alone in providing such easy access to guns designed to kill many people fast.

So, yes,
as President Trump noted
after the latest slaughter of innocents at a Florida high school,
the nation should do more to help people struggling with mental illness.
But what it must certainly do, and what the president and his Republican Party refuse to do,
is control access to these WMDs — weapons of mass death.

It is also worth noting that even on the issue of mental health,
Trump’s call for action drips with insincerity.
His just-released budget proposal seeks massive cuts
to
Medicaid
that would dramatically reduce access to the nation's mental health care system
for
millions of low-income individuals.
Likewise the administration continues to
undermine the Affordable Care Act without proposing an alternative program.

 In this country this day, we have Florida Officials hiding behind 'Closed doors' while planning on drilling for oil and gas at and off our shores, killing Social security, Medicare and Medicaid.!

A governor that travels bring back Shyster businesses that take our tax money and run!

We have an infestation of 'Nazi sympathizing, White Supremes, criminals, in and around Washington.

The NRA is paying our politicians both state and federal so that 'Nuts and criminals' can continue to murder our children.

Florida is planning ways to get our #@#@#@#@#@ governor to be our #@#@#@#@#@senator!

Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won


Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won't


Julia Kemple started this petition to Representative Fred Upton and 6 others


Adults have failed us. Everyday, we students walk into school with the promise of an education without threat of violence. However, it has become increasingly clear that hallways of schools across America are no longer a guaranteed safe haven. Whether it's an elementary school in small-town Connecticut or a high school in Florida, it's become apparent that school shootings are becoming an expected part of American life. Since 2013, there have been 291 school shootings, with 18 of them happening in 2018 alone. We simply ask how many shootings will it take, how many innocent children have to die, until adults decide we, as our nation's children, are more important than our nation's guns. Therefore, we ask our fellow students to take it upon ourselves to stand up as our adults remain sitting. We demand change.

While most students cannot vote, we are not voiceless to our society. There are about 56 million K through 12 students in the United States. If we mobilize this population -- by signing petitions, contacting lawmakers, and utilizing social media -- we can make our presence felt. Ultimately, our goal is to pressure lawmakers to make comprehensive and responsible gun control policy to keep our schools and society safe. 

It's not a matter of if anymore, it's a matter of when we will be affected.  

Students For Gun Legislation

Someday real soon our children can run to clean up our country. I am pleased to help them live, please also sign?

Students against Guns




2nd amendment word for word
The 2nd Amendment is just 27 words long:
No more, no less!


"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."

However;
"Money Talks Truth Walks!"

"A well paid congress
has been changing
and
adding to
what our for-fathers wrote
to help protect 
citizens from
congress"!





I do not like hiding any of the
'Scum of the Earth'
from the people!
(NRA--National Rifle Association)!

The young school students are on to you, Mr. Speaker of the House of Representatives.

They are saying that “Paul Ryan is being paid by the NRA”!

I say, “Well DUH!”

“Why else would anyone constantly
make a complete Ass of himself in the media,
each time the media talks Guns"?

I know, I know, he has always been one!

First, I dispute this
because, the National Rifle Association Lobbyist are paying congress!
Citizens United and McCutcheon cases

Paul Ryan and most if not all of congress is being paid by billionaires like the Koch Brothers!

An AR 15 automatic rifle is not a gun, it is a weapon!

An AK-47 is not a gun, it is a weapon!

The National Rifle Association didn’t purchase the gun,
the  National Rifle Association did not pull the trigger,
and
the National Rifle Association didn’t pass the laws!

However

The officers of the National Rifle Association along with the 10% rich,
did feed people in our governments
to write laws
helping to sell guns
that are killing
our children
among others! 

Alas,
the modern day Militia, believes in protecting themselves from a mutilated government!

You can own a hundred-thousand Ar-15's, and a hundred-thousand Ak-47's.

The government has an unlimited supply of weapons and thousands of them are Nuclear Missiles! 



In 2016, there were 9.4 million individuals with net worth between $1 million and $5 million, 1.3 million individuals with net worth between $5 million and $25 million,
and
156,000 households with more than $25 million in net worth, the report says. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/03/24/a-record-number-of-americans-are-now-millionaires-new-study-shows.html

If all of the ‘Mass Murdering to date’ were legally?


A few interesting facts, for 2nd Amendment people.


If all of the murdering people in this countries ‘Mass Murdering to date’ were legally and properly armed, each should have only been able to buy Muskets!


And then, only for a year at most!

One shot about every five minutes
and
would have been tackled
long before
the gun is reloaded!

If not for the influx of money
by
millionaires
and
billionaires
this should be true today!

The NRA, their Lobbyists/Politicians and other misguided people, changes the type of weapon!


The American Revolutionary War, also known as the American War of Independence, was a global war that began as a conflict between Great Britain and its Thirteen Colonies which declared independence as the United States of America. Wikipedia


American colonists were barely 12 years removed from the French and Indian wars (1754-1763), but close enough to a new conflict to begin thinking about the necessity for building a store of weapons. Those who served in militias in that earlier war had furnished their own weapons. The guns would have been muskets, fowling pieces or no weapon at all. They brought and carried their own provisions. Although the musket would be carried over to the new war, some weapons had seen its zenith in the old conflict. The matchlock musket was obsolete by 1775, but still retained by some families as a useful, but cumbersome to fire, weapon.

April 19, 1775 – September 3, 1783


Second Amendment to the United States Constitution


The revolutionaries also created a full-time regular army—the Continental Army—but because of manpower shortages the militia provided short-term support to the regulars in the field throughout the war.

In colonial era Anglo-American usage, militia service was distinguished from military service in that the latter was normally a commitment for a fixed period of time of at least a year, for a salary, whereas militia was only to meet a threat, or prepare to meet a threat, for periods of time expected to be short. Militia persons were normally expected to provide their own weapons, equipment, or supplies, although they may later be compensated for losses or expenditures.[71] A related concept is the jury, which can be regarded as a specialized form of militia convened to render a verdict in a court proceeding (known as a petit jury or trial jury) or to investigate a public matter and render a presentment or indictment (grand jury).[72]

With the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and Article 1 Section 8 of the United States Constitution, control of the army and the power to direct the militia of the states was concurrently delegated to the federal Congress.[73] The Militia Clauses gave Congress authority for "organizing, arming, and disciplining" the militia, and "governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States", with the States retaining authority to appoint officers and to impose the training specified by Congress. Proponents describe a key element in the concept of "militia" was that to be "genuine" it not be a "select militia", composed of an unrepresentative subset of the population. This was an argument presented in the ratification debates.[74]

The first legislation on the subject was the Militia Act of 1792 which provided, in part:

That each and every free able-bodied white male citizen of the respective States, resident therein, who is or shall be of age of eighteen years, and under the age of forty-five years (except as is herein after excepted) shall severally and respectively be enrolled in the militia, ... every citizen, so enrolled and notified, shall, within six months thereafter, provide himself with a good musket or firelock.

Military spending on the backs of "We the People"!


Three Generals in the White House equals a massive Military Spending Spree!



18 hours ago - Mr. Trump's 2019 budget,
combined with the tax cuts Republicans passed last year,
would amount to one of the greatest transfers of wealth from the poor to the rich in generations.
It would also charge trillions of dollars in new debt
to the account of future Americans.
It's a plan that could please only far-right ...


Military spending on the backs of

 Seniors (large Social Security cuts)

Middle-Class and Small business owned (Large Medicare cuts)!

Poor (Medicaid cut off)!


General H.R.McMastors


General James Mattis


Gen. John Kelly 
Boy, talk about
the
Nail hitting the Hammer on the Head!

Turns out that General Kelly is a bigger Sexual abusing hypercritic then his boss!

Military leaders believe
the brothers in arms they know,
not the female victims they don’t.
It’s not surprising that Kelly would defend Porter.

The question is, why would Kelly have put up with it?

Here’s one answer that few have dared raise:
the ingrained, extensive culture of sexual harassment in the military.
Not just tolerating abuse, but allowing it to fester,
particularly at the highest levels.
The military culture that turned a blind eye to domestic abuse
and
sex scandals by top brass
over a period of many years is the same one that bred John Kelly.

Surprised John Kelly would overlook abuse?

The military that bred him is rife with it.

Security Clearance to work in the White-House


Security Clearance to work in the White-House

Trumps Government Officials
cannot get
security clearance legally 
YET!



Security Clearance on Fox News!



Security Clearance on CNN?


Ivanka on Fox News!

Want to save $25,000,000,000.00 tax dollars?


Keep repeating this every day,
if not sooner
or
at least
every time a republican
asks about the wall, any wall!!

MEXICO WILL PAY FOR THE WALL!


MEXICO WILL PAY FOR THE WALL!


Want to save $25,000,000,000.00 tax dollars?

Americans will pay this much tax dollars
and only
with this dollar!

For a Trump wall!

Africa Zimbabwe $25000000000.00 Dollar
Price: US $2.48


If the GOP wanted $25,000,000,000 for a wall, they shouldn’t have blown $1,500,000,000,000 on an irresponsible tax giveaway for billionaires and corporations. The GOP has sold out the American people and betrayed working families in order to line the pockets of the wealthiest.

Guess What?

The Olympics was not invented by Americans



This is the Olympics

The Olympics was not invented by Americans and it does not belong to the United States of America.

I believe that the Greeks will also agree.

The two people in Washington said to be at the top of the Republican Party seem to think otherwise!


The ancient Olympic Games (Ancient Greek: τὰ Ὀλύμπια ta Olympia) were a series of athletic competitions among representatives of various city-states of ancient Greece. They were held in honor of Zeus, and the Greeks gave them a mythological origin. Historical records indicate that they began in 776 BC in Olympia.

Speaking along those lines
and for the world,
Korea (Both North and South),
are not subjects to
the United States
or i
ts government!

North Korea cheerleaders making quite an impression at Winter Olympics
USA TODAY

So did the USA!


According to a report by MSN,
"Ramo said
that 'every Korean' respected Japan
for their recent achievements as a nation,
insinuating that South Korea had forgotten about the 35 brutal years of Japanese rule that ended after World War II."

According to Jung Min-ho of The Korea Times, the comment angered locals. "His incorrect and insensitive comment about Korea's history has enraged many of its people," he wrote. "Tens of thousands of Koreans and non-Koreans alike have criticized Ramo and NBC Sports on their social media, urging them to correct this misinformation and apologize."
