The House of Representatives on Friday passed the most sweeping gun control bill in nearly 30 years in a 234 -193 vote as Congress responds to gun violence across the nation. The legislation garnered some GOP support with 14 House Republicans crossing party lines to vote in favor of the measure. The bill, which will now head to the president’s desk, passed the Senate with a 65-33 vote late Thursday night. Ten Senate Republicans and 10 Senate Democrats began negotiations on the legislation after two mass shootings in Buffalo, New York and Uvalde, Texas left dozens dead last month within a week of each other.

This is not a gun control bill, it's a people-centered control bill.

The only really bad part is funding red flag laws. These are state laws. Make sure your state doesn't have one or if it does, one that provides for due process. i saw someone post that the SC ruled that red flag laws were unconstitutional when they did not provide for due process.

Totally unconstitutional. "Red flag" is code for anyone wearing a red MAGA hat. This is all an emotional knee-jerk reaction to the Uvalde shooting. That shooting was a preplanned event set up organized and put on by people with a vested interest in this kind of legislation. That incident has dropped off the radar and replaced by this diversionary tactic. Chip away at the 2nd Amendment and before long it is completely destroyed.

We have mass murderers BECAUSE of the dems. So the indoctrination the dems are teaching is working. Good job dems. Also note that school shooters are younger. And how many school shooters are known to local and fed police BEFORE the shooting and they do NOTHING to stop it. Amazing right? Dems preach hate and division and sex. Dems worship death. Dems tell kids that a woman can kill an unborn child BEFORE birth. Now CA, DE and MD want to ABORT a child up to 28 days AFTER birth. Then they STARVE the babies. Then in school they teach kids to hate each other and question their sexuality and showing them porn starting in daycare causing them to have mental issues and then they wonder why kids lose it. Then they blame others when bad stuff happens. It is NOT the gun. It is how dems and libs DESTROY our kids

Alternatively, the police could be allowed to put the gangs in jail. There are plenty of felony violations they commit that would make that possible. Then, the FBI could imprison terrorists, if they would take their agents off Trump, and prosecute them, or put them back outside the country, instead of telling us they know about them, after a terrorist act occurs.

The CIA was using mind manipulation on various communities throughout the U.S. California was hit hard by their experiments going back over 50 years. So, yes, these false flag events, some real and some staged (Sandy Hook), are being done by the DS on purpose to disarm us. We must make ourselves heard now!! We cannot accept this and allow this TERRIBLE legislation to stand.

Joe Biden's Reported Position on Court-Packing

Is Joe Biden admitting that he knows the Democrats are going to get shellacked in the midterms and he’s hedging his bets? It just might be, given what White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Saturday. When Joe Biden was in the Senate, he was a strong defender of the filibuster. But over the past couple of years, as the Democrats have been screaming their heads off to get rid of the filibuster–to be able to deal with the bare majority that they have in the Senate. Biden has been cagey in the past on Court-packing and the filibuster. He wasn’t for sharing his position. Then, in January,

Insider reports that Musk's legal team sent a letter to Twitter's board last week, claiming that the data received so far was "not adequate."

Abortion, the No. 1 concern in today’s media and politics, ranks nearly dead last among areas voters care about as they struggle with paying daily bills, soaring inflation, and interest rate hikes, according to a just-released survey. While the Supreme Court’s decision overruling the 1973 Roe v. Wade right to abortion has dominated today’s network and cable coverage, the latest McLaughlin & Associates poll said just 5% of voters call it a top concern. Just below abortion, at 1%, is reviewing the 2020 election, over which the media are also obsessing. By comparison, 54% cited the economy. “Only 5% said abortion was top issue.

Two of the primary providers in Texas ceased performing abortions on Friday after the Attorney General warned they could be prosecuted immediately. “Some prosecutors may choose to immediately pursue criminal prosecutions based on violations of Texas abortion prohibitions predating Roe that were never repealed by the Texas Legislature,” AG Ken Paxton said in a written opinion issued following the court’s ruling. “Although these statutes were unenforceable while Roe was on the books, they are still Texas law,” Paxton wrote. “Under these pre-Roe statutes, abortion providers could be criminally liable for providing abortions starting today.”

Washington - President Joe Biden pledged to take every step his administration can to protect abortion rights after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade decision on Friday, and called on voters to elect state and federal officials who will vote to allow the procedure. Biden spoke from the White House on the ruling that eliminates a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion after nearly 50 years. The decision is expected to lead to nearly half of U.S. states outlawing or severely restricting the medical procedure and will affect tens of millions of people. “I believe Roe v.

Friday’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade will make abortions illegal in Texas in 30 days. The Texas Legislature passed a “trigger law” in 2021 that makes performing abortions in Texas a felony 30 days after the Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade. “The U.S. Supreme Court correctly overturned Roe v. Wade and reinstated the right of states to protect innocent, unborn children,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a written statement following the SCOTUS decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. “Texas is a pro-life state, and we have taken significant action to protect the sanctity of life.”

As Redstate reported, in one of the biggest and most impactful stories of the last 50 years, Roe v. Wade has been overturned by the US Supreme Court. The leaked draft decision that pushed conversation and outrage for the last several months was real, and it has now been made official. States now have the right to regulate the brutal practice of abortion as they see fit, a move toward respect for human life and basic morality we haven’t seen in this country since slavery was abolished. It’s hard to overstate how big of a day this is for those who have fought so diligently to protect the lives of unborn babies.

CNN senior writer Brian Lowry, and by extension CNN media reporter Brian Stelter (host of the reliably slanted Reliable Sources), mocked right-of-center New York Times columnist Ross Douthat for daring to write about two new movies in his latest column, even though he’s been a movie critic for National Review for over a decade. It’s the latest demonstration of the mainstream press failing to follow or try to understand conservative media. Stelter’s June 19 newsletter included a snotty take from Lowry that suggested Times op-ed columnists, and Douthat in particular, should stick to their knitting and leave pop culture analysis to the so-called experts, i.e. credentialed film critics.

The Supreme Court on Friday overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion, allowing a Mississippi law passed that bans abortions after 15 weeks to take effect. “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the 6-3 majority. The ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization means each state will now be able to determine its own regulations on abortion, including whether and when to prohibit abortion.
