NRA cancels NRATV — and the internet sends 'thoughts and prayers'

 

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/nra-cancels-nratv-and-the-internet-sends-thoughts-and-prayers-142530140.html

----------------------------------------------

“NRATV wasn’t just morally bankrupt—it was also financially bankrupting the NRA, which is the biggest reason why it got cancelled,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. “But the NRA can’t cancel its way out of crisis—that will require pulling the plug on its dangerous and extreme agenda.”

“The demise of NRATV isn’t just a win for the gun safety movement – it’s a win for common decency,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense

Ford tells Alabama car dealer to end shotgun giveaway after California shooting-

"Ford Motor Co. has asked a Ford dealership in Alabama to stop giving out certificates for free 12-gauge shotguns to anyone who buys a new or used vehicle...

Chatom Ford's advertising offered a shotgun, a Bible and an American flag with a car purchase. The offer drew  hundreds of calls from across the country from people wanting to buy cars to get the shotgun. ....

The automaker told the dealership late Wednesday that the promotion was inappropriate after three people died Tuesday evening during a mass shooting at a California Ford dealership.

There, a man who had been  fired from his job at the dealership in the San Francisco Bay area fatally shot two employees, then himself, according to local media reports.....

-so it takes 3 killings for Ford to acknowledge this as INAPPROPRIATE ?! :blink:

GOP-led Virginia Legislature abruptly adjourns special session on guns

"Less than two hours after beginning a special session called in response to a mass shooting, Virginia lawmakers abruptly adjourned Tuesday without taking any action

and postponed any movement on gun control until after the November election.

Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam called the Republican-led Legislature to the Capitol to address gun violence in the wake of the May 31 attack that killed a dozen people in Virginia Beach. The meeting got off to a chaotic start, with the Republican Senate majority leader averting a mutiny in the GOP caucus by publicly disavowing a gun-control bill he proposed only a day earlier.

Lawmakers were summoned to consider a package of eight gun-control measures put forward by Northam, who called for “votes and laws, not thoughts and prayers” in response to the Virginia Beach massacre......

 

Outside the Capitol, Northam led a group of gun-control supporters chanting “Enough is enough!” It has become a refrain against gun violence at rallies nationwide after repeated mass shootings. ..........

Some gun-rights advocates were walking around inside the Capitol with handguns in holsters openly visible, which is permitted.

Visitors to the House gallery can keep their guns, and while they are not permitted on the Senate side, some lawmakers bring guns with them onto the floor.....

Gilroy Garlic Festival gunman referred to 'Might is Right' manifesto before shooting

Santino William Legan used an AK-47-style rifle he bought legally in Nevada to kill three and wound a dozen more.

 

"The gunman who killed three people and wounded a dozen more at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California was an angry 19-year-old who had recently waded into the world of white supremacy.

Santino William Legan, who was shot dead by police Sunday before he could do more damage,

posted online about an 1890 racist manifesto, “Might is Right or The Survival of the Fittest,” NBC News confirmed.

 

“Read Might is Right by Ragnar Redbeard,” Legan posted on his Instagram page. He then used a slurs against mixed-race people and misogynistic descriptions of white Silicon Valley workers, complaining about "hordes" of them "overcrowding" towns.....

" The Nevada gun shop that sold him the gun expressed remorse for the shooting, and questioned whether 19-year-olds should be allowed to purchase guns. "We feel so sorry for the Families of the CA shooting," the shop wrote on Facebook.

"May the POS rest in Hell. Maybe people need to be 21 to buy?" ......

Maybe peope need to not have hateful comments of racism, misogyny, and domination through violence on their social media.

At least two of the victims were people of color-- the youngest being a six-year-old boy.

So many Trump supporters argued that California’s ban on assault rifles was absolutely useless
because the Gilroy shooter used an assault rifle anyway.
 
Well the 19-year-old had to go all the way to Nevada to legally purchase an AK-47.
 
The hardest part for him was renting the car.

The 19 year-old white male perpetrator didn't have any trouble circumventing the security at the Festival because his home was in the General vicinity and he knew the lay of the land.

Santino William Legan -- the White Supremacist who murdered a 6-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl in Gilroy, CA -- was 19 years old.

 

He was able to cross state lines to Nevada to legally purchase an AK-47 to murder those children.

 

NONE OF THIS makes any sense.

================================

 

& why Assault Ban, FOR EXAMPLE,  has to be FEDERAL LAW !!

Which is also why a federal assault ban will never be passed.

Problem is how can anyone stop a person like Santino  Legan from going on a rampage without warning if he had no past issues with the law or sent up any type of red flags. Known as a quiet teen from an athletic family who stayed out of trouble, neighbors said Monday.

Background check would had turn up nothing. :huh:

A Social media check would have turned up the fact that this nineteen-year-old white boy was a white supremacist who was also a misogynist, who felt that his issues could to be solved with violence.

No white supremacist should be sold a gun. That's the only way to stop this violent wave of white domestic terrorism.

Homegrown terrorists, Young white men who are radicalized by the extreme right-wing online hate propaganda.

99.9 % of people classified as white supremacist don't go out and kill people. It's an ideology that's protected by the Constitution.  Yes they do spout hate, encite violence but its the individual whom makes the decision whether to do so or not and if so then it's a crime.

There was a recent ruling from a Los Angeles judge.

https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Justice/2019/0605/Judge-White-supremacist-group-s-actions-protected-by-free-speech

 

This ruling also protects the New Black Panther Party that is also racist and an antisemitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews and law enforcement officers. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is monitoring the group.

One cannot prohibit the sale of firearms to an individual solely because of their ideology which is protected.

One of the first things the FBI did was to check the murderer's social media pages.

When you espouse violence and hatred, it's a good chance that you will create violence to consummate that Hatred...

The Ku Klux Klan did not get their reputation by just talking about violence.

When we get a good and responsible federal government up there--

A Department of Justice that cares about the welfare of All American citizens--

One of their first priorities will be absolutely doing something about this white domestic terrorism.

But it's after what happened but unless a person states they WILL go out and kill someone, how can the FBI know when to intervene?  Unless there can be some type of "Minority Report" technology doubt little that can be done.
