NRA: Spend Your Stimulus Checks On Our Donors’ Guns

Is their any doubt the NRA is about increasing gun sales at any cost?  They are the lobbying arm of the gun manufacturers.   They are not about rights or the hunter unless it is to sell more guns.  They are gun pushers.   Hugs

Media Matters reports:

The National Rifle Association is encouraging Americans to spend their coronavirus stimulus checks on “sweet deals” from gun and firearm accessory manufacturers, including companies that have donated tens of thousands of dollars to the NRA — and one that’s given the gun group over $1 million.

This isn’t the first time that the NRA has tried to fundraise off of fearmongering during the coronavirus pandemic. The NRA’s magazine American Rifleman published an April 23 article promoting ways to “stretch those bucks” on some “special spring gun deals for your stimulus check.”

Four of the seven companies listed in the article have donated to the NRA: Springfield Armory, Crimson Trace, FN America, and Hornady. Beyond the blatantly transparent attempt to boost the profits of its donors, the NRA is also promoting a dangerous surge in gun sales.

Trump administration adds firearms to federal list of critical pandemic infrastructure

The new language, added Saturday to the website of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, now deems as critical  “Workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers,
distributors, and shooting ranges.”

Previously-designated critical industries include energy, food production, emergency services, government offices, transportation and healthcare.

The list is meant to be advisory for state and local governments in their decision making — as they “work to protect their communities while ensuring continuity of functions critical to public health and safety” during the pandemic, the website says.

It was met with praise by the group “Gun Owners of America,” which said in a statement Saturday that it is encouraged President Trump’s administration is not ignoring “the ability to protect yourself” during the emergency.

Abolish the NRA’s ability to own Republicans.

hasan-minhaj:

“We have to talk about gun control. The NRA has had undue influence on American politics for the last fifty years. But if the New York Attorney General’s investigation finds that the NRA can’t call themselves a nonprofit, that wouldn’t just hurt their bottom line, we would finally be recognizing the NRA for what they are. A political organization, with global influence.”

Abolish the NRA’s ability to own Republicans.

American Mass Killings Reached a Record High in 2019. Most Were Carried Out With Guns.

Filed under: Criminal, Gun Control, News, NRA, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 08:51

https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a30351252/mass-killings-record-2019/

A database compiled by the Associated Press, USA Today, and Northeastern University revealed that 2019 set a grim new record—there were more mass killings in America than in any year since at least the 1970s. Of the 41 mass murders, 33 were carried out with guns, and in total, 211 people were killed in these attacks.

The database defined “mass killings” to include all attacks that left four or more people dead. The institutions began tracking these murders in 2006, but used research from years past to determine that 2019 saw more mass killings than any other year in at least four decades.

 

The statistics for mass shootings, defined as shootings in which four or more victims, excluding the gunmen, are shot, are even more grim. So far, there have been 412 mass shootings in 2019, an average of more than one each day. And with three days left in the year, it’s possible that the number could climb even higher.

Criminologist James Densley told AP that different eras are often marked by crime trends, as the 1970s and ‘80s were by serial murders. “This seems to be the age of mass shootings,” said Densley.

Houston Police Chief calls out impotent Republicans who refuse to pass Violence Against Women Act.

Republicans hate women and hate the idea of a woman having independence. Republicans will do all they can to protect abusive males.

To Republicans guns are more important than women

Republicans say the provision—which would prevent abusive dating partners from accessing firearms—is too political and will never make it past a GOP-controlled chamber. But documents obtained by The Daily Beast show the issue may not be as divisive as Republicans want it to seem—in fact, even Donald Trump’s Department of Justice supports it.

2 Men Stockpiled Guns and Far-Right Propaganda in New Jersey. Are They Alone?

Filed under: Criminal, Fascism, Gun Control, News, NRA, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 09:07

Getting scared enough to force politicians to do something about guns or lose their office?   Hugs

It is impossible to know if the two arrests so close together are a fluke or signal of a growing white supremacist movement in the county, law enforcement officials said. The two men appear to have no connection to each other.

Sussex has lately been seeing ugly signs of increasing racism and anti-Semitism. Vandals have scrawled swastikas in schools, and in a highly publicized incident last fall, supporters of a Jewish congressman found their Sussex County home vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti.

At the same time, there has been a rise in right-wing extremism across the country. White supremacists and other far-right extremists have killed more people than any other category of domestic extremist in the past 18 years. In August, for example, a white supremacist targeting Mexicans killed 22 in a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
