.@shannonrwatts, if u read More Guns, Less Crime (Univ of Chicago Press, 2010 3rd ed), u would know that the most vulnerable people benefit the most from owning guns: the most likely victims of violent crime (poor blacks) & those weaker physically (women & elderly).
#2A @NRA @gun
Gun control advocates are the racists, sexists, & don't want poor owning guns. When you have discretionary permits, gun control advocates give permits to wealthy, white men. Not those who need them. See LA.

You want only wealth.

Why do you, @MomsDemand & @Everytow hate the poor?
"In 2013, all but two Democrats in the Colorado House of Representatives voted against a Republican amendment to exempt impoverished individuals from a new tax on private transfers of guns."

There are many dubious arguments in regards to gun control and blatant red herrings. I thought I would capture the most common and write appropriate responses (read through)…. #guncontrolnow #neveragain #nra #gunsense #Guncontrol #2A
“The government wants to take my guns.”

No.. no.. no they don’t. Besides, have you even thought about the logistics of such an operation? Who’s coming? Police? Military? No, they wouldn’t give up their guns. Maybe Obama will come knock on your door and ask nicely.
“I don’t want to register my guns because the government will know what I have.”

You are paranoid. Switzerland has one of the highest gun ownership rates in Europe and they register. Registering will create greater accountability and provide better tracking to solve crimes.

To me the push back against #BigPharma #Vaccines #GunControl #Police #Prisons #Abortion #GMO #Monsanto et al and the other top level conspiracy debates are about government control! Think about the polarised sides that these debates take and who is on which side!
Do Democrats want overarching control in a socialist state? They support abortion choices which conservatives say ‘kills’ millions each year! Which can be spun as controlling the reproductive capabilities of some sections of society.
They support Gun Control which would leave the people defenceless against a tyrannical government. The support open borders and mass migration which would undoubtedly create a class of uneducated workers that would be taken advantage of.

1) President @realDonaldTrump Saved the #2ndAmendment for America last week!
2) Last Friday, President Trump took the historic step of ordering the “UNsigning” of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) during his address to the NRA-ILA’s Leadership Forum.
3) President Trump’s action effectively WITHDRAWS the United States from the most comprehensive effort towards international #GunControl.

I have been quiet since I've returned. I've been reflecting and trying to make sense out of it all. The question continues to bother me - why would an individual want to support policies or behaviors that hurt someone?

Thread follows
#WhyIResist
Gun Violence. The reports flow in faster than you can imagine. I have lost count of how many shootings there were this part week or today.

So why would an individual or party support an organization such as the #NRA We must think of the greater good and support #GunControl
Hate Crimes. Why would a person say hateful things and create more pain for others by inciting hate? Even worse why would an individual or party not stand up to such hate?

It figures, but this is not surprising.

So Obama signed us up for a UN "arms treaty" that would have regulated our (US) arms transfers, yet who was NOT part of this treaty?

#China and #Russia

Why is that everything the #Democrats do end up HELPING CHINA AND RUSSIA?
Oh, and it seems Obama and the UN were trying to use that treaty as a US Gun grab as well. The draft of this UN treaty had included civilian firearms.

The Trump Administration is #AtWarWithWomen. The #ViolenceAgainstWomenAct ( #VAWA ) has been allowed to expire and they have quietly changed the definition of #DomesticViolence.
The Trump Justice Department declared, only harms that constitute a felony or misdemeanor crime may be called #domesticviolence. The isolation, financial control, emotional attacks, and verbal assaults are no longer considered domestic violence.
I am a survivor of #domesticviolence and long before the horror of the physical abuse that would constitute a “felony or misdemeanor” came the systematic destruction of my ability to be a free and functioning individual.

"What's changed, because it ain't the guns?"

"It's the availability of high powered semiautomatic "assault weapons"."

"The #2A needs to change with technology."

I'm going to spell this out clearly for #GunSense #guncontrol

"Assault weapon" is a fear mongering term.
Semiautomatic weapons are over 130 years old now, 1885, and have been in continuous mass production for over 100 years. Ar-15's are over 60 years old, and have been available for civilian ownership for nearly as long. The AR-15 was sold to civilians before the military
even adopted the M-16. Now that we have a time line of the weapons let's look at another interesting fact. The NICS program went into law in 1993 and was put into action by the FBI in 1998. This means that before any standard background checks were operational

The "resistance"of which I speak is a multi-generational, multi-racial/cultural, multi-abled, cis, trans, queer intersectional coalition of community/movement builders, grassroots orgs & ldrs who collectively seek to advance a policy agenda to realize equity, justice & equality.
These unprecedented & uncertain times demand unprecedented organizing & mobilizing, just as we did to preserve the #ACA, to affirm #BLM, the rights of our #transgender community, the urgency of #guncontrol & so many other issues of consequence to our country & to #MA7
This weekend we celebrate the example of Martin Luther King Jr., a man & a movement which provides us a blueprint. Organize. Mobilize. Legislate. The "resistance" of today is the evolution of King's movement building work.
