Those close to Brittney Griner pursued a strategy of silence after the WNBA star's detention in Russia in February, hoping to avoid politicizing her case. Now they are amping up public pressure — with some of it aimed at President Biden. nyti.ms/3GroGv4

In 1988, the federal government banned metal-tipped lawn darts because a single child died from one.

We can’t have a Nation where cops overreact to traffic violations and under react to mass shootings… #Uvalde

REMINDER: As Wayne LaPierre suggests bringing more guns inside schools, there are currently NO guns allowed at the NRA Convention. For safety reasons.

"These same people are talking about the right to life and about family. A child is a human at conception, but you won't protect children who are living." 4,000-plus demonstrators, and several speakers, attended the protest outside the NRA Convention. trib.al/t127KHE

The NRA is a terrorist organization, and is responsible for more American deaths than ISIS, ISIS-K, and Al Qaeda combined. The Republican cowards who are speaking at the #NRAconvention are not JUST cowards. They’re also domestic terrorists.

THEY WANT CARNAGE
In the last year, Greg Abbott and Texas Republicans passed a law eliminating ANY permit requirement for guns — and then slashed $211 MILLION from Texas’s mental health budget.

ONE 18 year-old with an AR-style rifle can hold off an entire police department response for an hour while he slaughters children? And we're questioning whether these guns should be legal for civilians?

Trained police officers are terrified of a person with an assault weapon. What more do we need to know in order to ban them?

The moment to stop Uvalde was right after Sandy Hook. After Santa Fe High. After El Paso. Instead, Abbott made it easier to carry guns in public. The moment to stop the next slaughter is right now.

Coach Kerr said it all. The list of mass shootings is too long for a tweet; 1,000s murdered. Moment of silence. Thoughts & prayers. Rinse. Repeat. Nothing changes. We're not safe at school, work, houses of worship, malls, grocery stores & movie theaters. Is this freedom?

By federal law, I’m limited to purchasing no more than 9 grams of Sudafed per 30 day period because it can be used to make a drug that kills people, but I can buy as many guns as I want per 30 day period even though they can be used to kill people.
