War is the use of armed violence to achieve political ends. If the armed, uniformed militias who attacked our Capitol on January 6th weren’t “levying War against” America, what were they doing?
It breaks my heart to read this because it fills in the relevant details that confirm a feeling and observation that I have held for many many years about the United States. Canadians used to think that we were smarter than Americans, but it isn't that. We have not had a powerful sector of the population deliberately lying to us and manipulating every aspect of our lives.
Thanks for updating us on this important topic. Wow, because of my busy life all these years I had not fully realized that back in 2004 Congress did not extend the assault weapons ban. It's incredibly scary to live in the United States especially with this new one from Sig Saucer coming out. This is absolutely unbelievable. Why? There's absolutely NO need for these weapons in our lives. NONE.
Senator Tammy Duckworth had given a very compelling speech back in May on "How many more children will you allow to be murdered?" which was very good and informative. I honestly find myself not wanting to go into public and after the movie theater mass shooting in Colorado, I had an anxiety attack the first time I went back to the theater. I worried everyday as my daughter went out the door to school and now I have to second guess going grocery shopping. This is terrorism. I've heard too often from Trump supporting acquaintances laughing about murdering democrats. So I've unfriended them on my personal social media. I think you are right that the GOP is a death cult. A police officer friend says they are totally uncomfortable with the lack of gun control and I believe from the training I've done with police that they are far more worried and fearful these days knowing they can be out gunned so their training is about defending themselves. I just find it unfathomable that these weapons are being allowed!! We need some strong fast solutions and long term turn around plan before more die needlessly.
We need to repeal the 2nd amendment. More important, we need to repeal the corrupt SCOTUS creating laws out of thin air. There are lots of ideas, term limits, replacing the traitorous perjurists, adding more corrupt judges, but it's actually simpler.
Just pass a law that all SCOTUS decisions must be unanimous. Then we'd limit them to their constitutional duties.
“Wow. In 4 minutes, former U.S. Marine Marksmanship Instructor and Arizona Sec. of State candidate @Adrian_Fontes dismantles the right's Second Amendment lies. Watch this till the end.”
Our Canadian friend, Susan Grigor, nailed it when she said the difference in our countries was the daily drumbeat from the right. It is not just Fox, it's their radio and online presence as well. Trump took the lying to another level and they love him for it. Between Trump and those forces they've called open season.
And since Americans only want the best, here comes the arms dealers to provide the weapons to every anti-social sicko that the radical right has helped to to create. President Obama had it right about God, guns, and gays---he just failed to mention the ridiculous lies they seem to cling too as well.
It has always been clear the Second Amendment was misused to allow sale of murderous gun, state militias despite sstateckaws.
