    This is only about 4 minutes at the beginning of the Trump parade today in Newtown, PA. The orchestrates of the parade stopped counting at 3000 cars, trucks and bikers. It went on for miles but I ran out of memory for recording lol.

    (Video at Source) Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” host Nicolle Wallace and her panel discussed a new public service announcement from Sandy Hook Promise, a nonprofit founded by the parents of victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook shootings. Wallace said, “Here’s the deal that’s not an ad that’s life for those kids. And you talk to people in the mental health universe childhood and pediatric anxiety is through the roof.” She continued, “If you’re going to say I’m not taking the guns off the streets, I’m not taking the guns from the people who have no —a mass shooter doesn’t have...
  • It begins: Conn. Supreme Court rules gunmaker Remington can be sued over Newtown shooting

    One legal strategy the #neverguns Left has been pursuing in recent years in their attempt to neuter the Second Amendment and chill gun rights is to sue weapons makers in an attempt to hold them responsible for mass shootings. Thanks to a decision Thursday by the Connecticut Supreme Court, Leftist anti-gunners are now one step closer to their objective. As The Associated Press reported, a divided court ruled that a lawsuit against gunmaker Remington can proceed over the way the company marketed the rifle that was used to kill 20 children and six school officials at the Sandy Hook Elementary...

    Lawmakers from Pennsylvania have put forth a bill that proposes a 10% excise tax on violent video games. House Bill 109 seeks to impose the so-called "sin tax" on games sold at retail that are rated by the ESRB as M for Mature or Adults-Only. The money would go into a fund called the "Digital Protection for School Safety Account" that aims to enhance security measures at schools in the wake of the school shootings in Parkland, Florida and Newtown, Connecticut. State representative Chris Quinn, a republican, initially put forth the bill in 2018, but it never made it out...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-lusional Calif.) told a CNN town hall Monday night she has a "harsh" suggestion on how to force Congress to pass stricter gun control. Citing the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, Harris noted that "twenty 6- and 7-year-old babies were massacred," but still, Congress "failed to act." "I think somebody should have required all those members of Congress to go in a room, in a locked room, no press, nobody else, and look at the autopsy photographs of those babies. And then you vote your conscience.

  • How Trump's Views on Gun Control Have Shifted Over the Years

    In his 2000 book, The America We Deserve, Trump criticized Republicans who “walk the NRA line” and “refuse even limited restrictions” on firearms laws. “It’s often argued that the American murder rate is high because guns are more available here than in other countries. After a tragedy like the massacre at Columbine High School, anyone could feel that it is too easy for Americans to get their hands on weapons. But nobody has a good solution,” he wrote. “This is another issue where you see the extremes of the two existing major parties,” continued Trump, who, at the time of...

    Three separate bloodbaths at Russian schools recently are all linked by the alleged teenage attackers 'worshipping' the perpetrators of the Columbine massacre in the U.S. 18 years ago. In the latest outrage on Friday, axe-wielding masked suspect Anton Bichivin, 16, wore a T-shirt linked to German band KMFDM as did sinister Columbine shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. The shirt was visible as the blood-drenched Russian was detained in the snow by military police, and in an ambulance as he was rushed to hospital. He and accomplice Alexander Rogalsky, 16, are believed to hold Nazi sympathies and gave themselves fascist...

    Russian police are investigating whether three school attacks this week are connected after a teenager attacked a class with an axe and Molotov cocktail in the Buryatia region. The instructor involved, Russian language and literature teacher Irina Ramenskaya, told Mash, “I started to take the kids out. When I came out, I saw that a person was just chopping the kids with an axe,” she said. “I brought them back in the classroom, where everything was burning. I was bleeding. Before my eyes stood Anton with an axe.” The Ulan-Ude incident came on the heels of a knife attack that...

    Adam Lanza expressed his desire to commit the Sandy Hook massacre years before the tragedy took place — and when a witness alerted police, the cops said there was nothing they could do. The Sandy Hook shooter told an unidentified male in 2008 that he had access to assault weapons and planned to kill students at the elementary school along with his mother, Nancy Lanza, according to FBI documents released this week. The revelation was first reported by the New York Times on Thursday. The witness — whose name has been redacted from the files — told feds that he...

    Newly released FBI documents in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting paint an even more disturbing portrait of killer Adam Lanza, suggesting his fascination with children verged on the obscene. Connecticut investigators found a file on Lanza’s computer “advocating pedophiles’ rights and the liberation of children,” a recently unsealed document says. They also reportedly found a screenplay about a relationship between an adult male and a young boy. There’s no evidence Lanza, 20, acted on sexual interests in young children before the school massacre, which killed 20 elementary school children and six adults before Lanza killed himself.

    HARTFORD, Conn. -- A judge on Friday dismissed a wrongful-death lawsuit by Newtown families against the maker of the rifle used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre, citing an embattled federal law that shields gun manufacturers from most lawsuits over criminal use of their products. State Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis granted a motion by Remington Arms to strike the lawsuit by the families of nine children and adults killed and a teacher who survived the Dec. 14, 2012, school attack, in which a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six educators with a Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle made by...

    This report refers to Shannon Watts as one in a group of “regular people” who began advocating for stricter gun control measures in recent years. After the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., she created the “One Million Moms for Gun Control” Facebook page. It later became “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.” We should have noted that Watts has a background in corporate communications. From 1998 to mid-2012, she was a corporate communications executive or consultant at such companies as Monsanto and FleishmanHillard. Before that, Watts had what she says was a...

    In a shocking development in the push for gun-control, Senator Chris Murphy, who filibustered for 15 hours regarding the issue, admitted Sunday on ABC’s This Week that his proposal would not have stopped any recent mass shooting. “Your proposal would have done nothing in the case of Orlando, it would have done nothing to stop the killing in San Bernardino,” stated ABC’s Jon Karl calling out Murphy, “And in fact, it was unrelated to the killing in Newtown.” The proposal Murphy has been pushing is one that is meant to close the mythical “gun show loophole.” “Would that have done anything...

    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – A lawsuit can go forward against the maker of the rifle used in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, a judge ruled Thursday. Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis said that a 2005 federal law protecting gun-makers from lawsuits does not prevent lawyers for the victims' families from arguing that the semi-automatic rifle is a military weapon and should not have been sold to civilians.
