Been seeing a lot of bullshit being spread about guns recently. Let’s take a look into some of the claims passed as fact and dumb arguments masquerading as intelligent. #VetsForGunReform First off is that Democrats/leftists make up most mass shooters:…
Second one: “criminals don’t follow the law”. Well fuck it then we might as well have no laws then is that it? Laws are meant to deter crime and give us a mechanism to punish those who break the law.
Third one: This will punish law abiding citizens. Nicolas Cruz was law abiding when he bought his guns, So was Steven Paddock. Then they weren’t. In fact 82% of guns that are used in mass shootings are legally acquired:…
The third: “more guns will solve the gun problem” Will more sharks prevent shark attacks? More cancer cure cancer? This is a stupid fucking argument especially considering the United States is #1 in the world for gun ownership:…
By that logic the US should be the safest country on the planet. Hint: we aren’t. We are also the only country in the world with as big of a mass shooting problem as we have.
The fourth: Knives/bats/chairs/other weapons kill more or almost as many people as guns. Nope. As per the @FBI:

2016 total homicides: 15,070
Firearm homicides: 11,004
Knives etc: 1,604
Blunt Objects: 472…
Another one: states with stricter gun laws have more deaths. Nope. As per the @CDCgov here are the states with the highest firearm death rates(hint ones with lax gun laws):…
That the UK has a far higher violent crime rate than the US. In fact the rates aren’t nearly as different as has been circulated:…
That guns stop violent crimes. 30 studies show that guns in fact do not help and are linked to violent crimes themselves:…
These are just some of the big ones I have seen toured recently and I think setting the record straight and countering the disinformation spread by the @NRA and the #2Amendment crowd is important so there can be some real debate instead of them screaming bullshit at everyone.
Another bullshit myth: that the US, UK and Australia are different so gun control won’t work the same way here. That’s bullshit, less guns = less deaths by said guns no matter where you live.
Another piece of bullshit is this:
I ran the #’s off of the FBI’s official tally and the cities and compared them the the UNDOC list, it’s all laid bare to see here:
Here’s another one I can’t even believe I have to talk about: “Well X Y or Z kills more people a year”(faves seem to be drugs, DUI and texting and driving) yeah dipshit some things kill more than others but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work on both... And only guns have an
organization like the @NRA defending them regardless of death toll. No one pays an organization to defend DUI, texting and driving or drugs.

I’ve been thinking about the reunification of immigrant kids with their families and the feds saying there was no plan to reunite them. I think they can’t, literally lack the capability to. Reunification was never the plan and I bet they acted as such and have been keeping
Minimal to no records of what child and parent belong together both because reunification was never the plan and because they were so overwhelmed by the policy necessitating every child be separated that it was maybe names and a photo at best, no family history, no other info
Just the bare minimum. And the fact that @DHSgov handed out a flyer putting all the responsibility on the parent to locate their own child seems to back that up...

So I keep seeing people buying into the administrations bullshit that this is an old “law” that needs to be fixed. First off it is not and never has been a law:…
Second off @TheJusticeDept announced the policy change referring all improper entry cases to DOJ:…
By the way Improper Entry is a misdemeanor with civil penalties: 8 U.S. Code § 1325 - Improper entry by alien…

This needs to fucking stop. I’m god damn sick and tired of hearing about the most recent mass shooting or school shooting. 15 fucking children were slaughtered in their school today because the fucking @NRA and insane #2ndAmendment types(not all) push back against every common
sense piece of #guncontrol. After fucking #vegasshooting the @NRA opposed banning bumpstocks like the fucking cowards they are. They talk a big game but when it comes tome to actually do something they do shit except say “it’s not the time to politicize this” or
“thoughts and prayers”. If you are a member/ supporter of the @NRA and say this with no action fuck you. You are complicit in these shootings, you have blood on your hands. And you mental fucking midgets who spew “oh gun control doesn’t work” or “we need more good guys with guns”

(Thread) I’ve made some disjointed comments and tweets on how the @DevinNunes memo is bullshit, let me put it all in one thread for easier consumption. The #FISAMemo is 100% bullshit.
First off I see the #ReleaseTheMemo and #QAnon crowd pushing this narrative that the dossier invalidates the entire investigation, it doesn’t. The investigation was actually triggered by Papadapolous drunkenly running his mouth to an Australian diplomat:…
The memo itself even asserts this on Page 4. .@realDonaldTrump and the rest of his supporters appear to have ignored this part of the memo because it doesn’t support their narrative.

(Long Ass Thread)The past few days have been a rollercoaster. The @DevinNunes memo, McCabe forced out of the @FBI and @SpeakerRyan calling for a “cleanse” of the FBI. This is the beginning of a new Night of the Long Knives, although instead of executions it is political
assassination. Make no mistake(and I truly hope I am wrong about all this) this is the latest in a long string of actions by @realDonaldTrump and the @GOP to hold onto power, if they can control all three branches they have almost absolute power which is what they want.
.@realDonaldTrump from the beginning of and even since before his presidency has demonstrated a willingness to do anything to gain the adoration of people and gain power, he even called on an adversarial foreign power to help him get dirt on his political opponent and had his son

(1/?) I think this might be the final nail in the @realDonaldTrump presidency’s coffin. Flynn has pled out now, that means he’s flipping on people and I doubt Mueller’s team would accept a deal for small fish. Couple that w/ @nytimes dropping this today:…
(2/?) These emails seem to show the campaign nervous about sanctions and even discussing how to ease tensions. Enter Mike Flynn, who met with Kislyak to discuss sanctions then lied about it. Then we have @realDonaldTrump dropping this gem:
(3/?) this tweet seems to indicate he knew about Flynn’s activities and that he knew he also lied about them. This means he knowingly tried to get Flynn off the hook with Comey and, failing that, he fired Comey in an attempt to save Flynn’s ass
