I've been hearing a lot of resignation in people's voices and tweets, in the face of the latest tragedy at #PowaySynagogueShooting. People are giving up hope that we can ever bend the curve on our #gunviolence epidemic.

--This thread is dedicated to destroying that despair.—
6 years ago, we watched those babies walk out of #SandyHook - & were torn apart, as a nation, by the memory of those who didn't make it.

Many of us had been told that we "couldn't" talk about guns.

But after Sandy Hook, many of us said "no more; we will not be silent."
A few bravely started talking and writing about why #gunviolence was a #publichealth issue. Those few, turned into a wave. The groundwork was slowly laid.

📌Mueller Delivers Report on RU to AG

📌Barr will meet RR & Mueller this weekend on how to proceed.
.
📌’No further indictments’ are the key operative words. Means Mueller will not file additional Indictments.

📌However, he likely filed many SEALED INDICTMENTS.
.
💣Mueller2💣

This is not an end but rather a new beginning.

OSC is a contractor to DOJ; his office will be wrapping up; but if he secured any indictments under seal, they could be handed off to other divisions of the DOJ.

Ex: handed off to DC, EDVA, SDNY & other jurisdictions
💣Mueller3💣

Michael Beschloss suggests, Mueller waited for the 46th anniversary of the Watergate tape where President Nixon tells John Mitchell, ‘I want you all to stonewall it, let them plead the Fifth Amendment, cover-up or anything else, if it’ll save it – save the plan.’

Mueller knows how much foreign 💰 was 💦 thru RNC/NRA/GOP & Trump campaign coffers via straw donors
💰StawDonors2💰

Photo op arranged by Cindy Yang at a fundraiser hosted by the RNC in NYC w/ Trump charged $50k per photo, benefiting Trump’s re-elex campaign.

But Ryan Xu & Lucas Lu did not pay.

A search of a fed DB showed no record of either man giving to Trump Victory,
💰StawDonors3💰

Yang isn’t saying — but she & three associates with an Asian-American political group donated a total of $135.5k to Trump Victory in the weeks leading up to the event.

📌One of them said she could not recall making a $25k donation listed in her name & address.

I’m going to do the unpopular here: defend @SenFeinstein a) do the kids, who’re rightly concerned abt climate change, actually know what’s in #NGD resolution? Do they know the legislative process? Perhaps it’s unfair to ask them to understand how a bill becomes a law but if 1/
They’re going to care enough abt the enviro, then they should book up on legislative process bec that actually matters here. B) @AOC @SenMarkey did NOT intro actual legislative fixes to address climate change. There isn’t a SINGLE policy proscription in their resolutions. 2/
Instead they intro’d goals. Do the kids know what the goals are? Do they know how we’re going to achieve those goals through legislation? Do they know the GOP controls the Senate & will not debate legislation to achieve these goals as long as they have the majority? Because 3/

I found it. The point where Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch INTERFERED in the election, and used CUNNING PSYCHOLOGY to AFFECT THE OUTCOME.

Read THIS SECTION: "You Might Be Helping’ Trump"

This is how SOCIALISM exploits 'inappropriate inaction".

Allow me to back up. Early on, I fingered Trisha B. Anderson as highly suspicious in the EXONERATION of Hillary Clinton and the FALSE TARGETING of Donald Trump.
Anderson's name kept showing up in documents connected to the "Mid-Year Exam" (MYE) project - a.k.a. the exoneration of Hillary Clinton for her email CRIMES. She was in KEY MEETINGS. And yet NOBODY talked about her.

NEVER confuse CONFERENCE or REFERENCE with INFLUENCE.

A new federal Assault Weapons Ban #HR1296 has been introduced in the House by @davidcicilline (with 190 co-sponsors). As a good deal of evidence in support of such a ban is drawn from my research on the 1994 #AWB, it's worthwhile to review some of my findings. 1/

THREAD FOLLOWS
The 1994 #AWB took effect on Sept. 13, 1994, and it remained in force for exactly 10 years, expiring on Sept. 13, 2004. The primary goal of the 1994 #AWB was to reduce mass shooting violence. The 1994 ban was a direct response to five mass shootings from 1989-1993. 2/
The 5 mass shootings: 1989—Cleveland Street Elem. School in Stockton (5 dead); 1989—Standard Gravure in Louisville (8 dead); 1991—Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen (23 dead); 1993—101 California St. in San Francisco (8 dead); and 1993—Long Island Rail Road near Garden City (6 dead). 3/

Today may be a day to celebrate love, but #VDay will forever be stained with the blood of 17 kids shot to death at #StonemanDouglas one year ago today.

The #Parkland students didn't ask to become the mouthpiece for calling out the @NRA and its decades old fraud. But they did.
Fraud? Yes.

Those are the words of former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Warren Burger (1969-1986.)

Let me state it clearly:

NO COURT HAS EVER RULED THERE IS AN INDIVIDUAL CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS.

That is not, that is never, what the #2ndAmendment has said.
Watch for words like "school safety" and "God-given right" and "patriotic." The @NRA has spent lifetimes of money creating this narrative.

In my home state of Virginia, the Safe VA Initiative released policy recommendations for the 2019 term:

Rep Swalwell said last night that as soon as this was passed, he called one of the #Parkland kids to let them know.. This is first significant gun legislation seen in Congress in 26 yrs. It's about time. #GunControlNow #ThursdayThoughts
washingtonpost.com/national/congr…
2-"The House Judiciary Committee passed a measure Wednesday that would require background checks for all gun sales and most gun transfers within the United States, the most significant gun-control legislation to advance this far in Congress in years. The committee spent more than
3-"nine hours debating the bill before voting 21 to 14 to advance it Wednesday night. Next, it will face a vote on the House floor. The measure was among the first actions taken by the newly elected Democratic majority, which pledged to make gun control a top issue.

After the shooting of 14 students and three adults at a Florida high school by a former student, parents and students rallied to say: Never again. But #SinceParkland, nearly 1,200 young lives have been taken by gunfire in the U.S. miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo…
That means that #SinceParkland, the United States have had enough young gun victims to fill three ultra-wide Boeing 777s, and the true number is certainly higher because no government agency keeps a real-time tally. miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo…
.@teamtrace wanted to acknowledge those lost lives. It assembled a team of more than 200 journalists — kids themselves — to research and write short portraits of every victim, 18 and under, for that 365-day period. sinceparkland.org #SinceParkland

1/13—I’m going to be traveling for work this week, but I have to be honest—my mind is on #Parkland with the anniversary on Thursday. I’m thinking about the phone call I had with @justinjm1 my @thedailybeast editor; I broke down after days of reporting on my community.
2/13—I’m thinking about how I’ll never fully understand the anguish of @fred_guttenberg or @rpetty or any of the other families for that matter. I'm thinking about the internal unseen pain people like @KyleKashuv @davidhogg111 @Emma4Change @PollackHunter must feel.
3/13—I'm thinking about how I never expected to report the news that my own 2-year-old was on lockdown at his school not far from Stoneman Douglas. I'm thinking about the father that was looking for his children. I’m thinking about the candles—the flowers by the teddy bear.

Thread. #MyLifeAsAResister looking back at 12 months which feels Iike 12 years. So much happened every day, but we put one foot in front of the other, wading through the lies, the chaos, the deconstruction of our institutions. We keep our faith. 1/24
January 2018, for the second time in two years, women and the men who support us, gathered by the millions to send a message. We will not be cowed by a regime that does everything to take away our own agency. My cousin Zigi and I at the #WomensMarch @ZigarinaZigi 2/24
February 2018. Looking for inspiration and wisdom, I went to see Dan Rather, whose book is a must read for resisters. @DanRather spoke eloquently about what he learned from decades of reporting, that we are mighty together, that our core values hold and that it IS up to US. 3/24

The two children should receive autopsies. and the cause of death should be made public and covered on EVERY media outlet that has reported it. We have children who die in the custody of public schools (#Parkland) It turns out the government IS responsible but no one reports it.
This article is from 2015..Wonder who was President then 🤔 Can anyone tell me why it was not addressed?

Research indicates that arming teachers will make children less safe. For this reason, school safety experts, teachers and law enforcement officials across the country oppose arming teachers: everytownresearch.org/arming-teacher…
The nation’s two largest organizations of education professionals, the @AFTunion and the @NEA, consistently reject the presence of guns in schools. The @NASRO_Info, the largest organization of school-based law enforcement officers, also opposes arming teachers.
Our children deserve real solutions to keep them safe from gun violence – like a criminal background check on every gun sale – not dangerous, @NRA-supported policies that put them at even higher risk while lining the pockets of gun manufacturers. #flapol #Parkland

I am still freaking the F out. My kids. My babies.

A real plan to shoot kids in school. MY kids school. With locks, double entrances, security guards, not a lot of doors.

Arrests made.

They’re safe. Only way I can tweet this through my tears and rage.

My kids arrived at school to find themselves in immediate lockdown within 10 minutes at their middle and high schools.
Here’s some texts of fear, I love you’s and me reminding them how to hide & run. Find your sister. Don’t save anyone else.

I couldn’t be there to protect them.
No parent should ever have to go through this. Ever. I keep thinking of @fred_guttenberg & the other #Parkland parents who will never see their babies again.

And the #parkland kids @davidhogg111 @Emma4Change
who had their lives threatened for not wanting to die at school.

12 more parents have lost their children. Another community is traumatized. I have had #enough

I am DONE with @NRA telling me I can't talk about this. DONE accepting federal limits on #research

And I know you are, too.

This is what you can do:
nyti.ms/2DaBzLG
1. Share your stories. After #Parkland, people across the country told about the horrors they had seen as #Docs4GunSense. Stories matter. This is not a glamorous movie. These injuries are REAL LIFE. This us OUR LANE.

2. Talk about guns. Talk about guns with gun owners and non gun owners. We are on the same side. Create consensus. Want some tips? Listen to me and @ERdisasterdoc - try it out for size.
