    Hey TOD!
    I am Leaving a Message as Nerdy Wonka told me 😉 to do.

    Great Tweets, NW.
    It is a shame that the Gun Violence in USA is Man/Woman made……therefore as JFK said many years ago, it can be solved be Man/Woman.
    Winston Churchill said that Americans will try everything, but eventually, they will do the right thing.
    When shall We The People on Gun Violence?
    Since the assassination of JFK, nearly 2M Americans have been killed by guns. More deaths than by the deaths of those who were killed in wars since this Nation was formed.

    I would not be surprised if other countries start issuing travel warnings for the USA.

    The polls say people WANT gun control but it must be for some “Other” state than the ones where the pollster lives. GOP voters give DEM congress low approval ratings and DEM voters gives GOP members low approval ratings. I put the onerous on the GOP legislators not DEMs, it is the majority of GOP who refuse to do anything about gun regulation. I fear for my 14yr old niece who will be going to college in four years and could become a statistic if nothing is changed real soon.

    Thank you, Nerdy, for this assemblage of pertinent tweets.
    Linda had it right! travel warnings for coming to the US.

    Parents and grandparents have to be afraid to let the kids go to school. I know I am and when my daughter called me for the second time an hour ago my first response was fear. (We chat often but usually not twice in one day.)
    You know the country is teetering on some brink when a mother is alarmed to see her daughters name come up on phone ID for the second time in one day.

    Hours After Lie Filled Republican Hearing, Planned Parenthood Burned In Arson Attack

    Last night, following the Republican Party’s televised despicable false attacks on Planned Parenthood which included deceptively edited videos and false graphs, a Planned Parenthood in Thousand Oaks, California burned in what authorities have determined was an arson attack. This came just weeks after a vandalism attack om the same facility.

    The Los Angeles Times reported, “Ventura County sheriff’s Capt. John Reilly said Thursday someone likely used a rock to shatter a window at the Planned Parenthood facility in the 1200 block of West Hillcrest Drive, then threw gasoline inside the office and ignited it.”

    What is there left for the president to say? We all know what needs to be done, but we d o not have the will to do it. If enough of us were truly sick and tired of being sick and tired, we would defeat the handful of profiteers and their minions. If I were PBO, I would not say anything more about this.

    If young Black males were going around shooting up schools, movie theaters, malls and places of worship, you can bet this issue would be handled differently.

    • October 1, 2015 at 6:51 pm

      They all would be killed instantly, CEB, but the gun nuts would still be supporting the NRA. This disease goes way deep and, as I’ve said over and over and over again, the way to bring it in check without in any way abrogating “2nd Amendment rights” is to make it a major Federal offense for any gun/ammo manufacturer, seller, owner or/and user carry liability insurance. The insurance companies will ensure compliance, I can guarantee you, because they’d go broke if they didn’t.

    Report: Oregon Shooter Asked Victims About Their Religion

    An Oregon newspaper reported Thursday that a woman who was in a community college classroom where a massacre took place said the gunman asked victims about their religion before opening fire.

    From the newspaper:

    Kortney Moore, 18, from Rogue River, was in her Writing 115 class in Snyder Hall when one shot came through a window. She saw her teacher get shot in the head. The shooter was inside at that point, and he told people to get on the ground. The shooter was asking people to stand up and state their religion and then started firing away, Moore said. Moore was lying there with people who had been shot.

      When did that start – not standing when the President enters the room? Fox this morning was saying the mass shootings are few and all the rest are gang kilings, so I guess those are acceptable? What has happened to my country?

    Why the hell does Chris Matthews keep bringing up assassinations to compare with mass shootings of regular people? Is he trying to say political assassinations should be expected/acceptable? What a freaking creep!

    [Ugh! I made the mistake of leaving the TV on after listening to the President speak.]

    • 78 Linda
      October 1, 2015 at 7:44 pm

      He was saying that the gun laws changed after those assassinations or attempts and asking why nothing after all the mass killings.

      Sanders will find a way to evade the issue, and Hayes will be happy to let him off…

      The fact that Hayes is pushing Sanders’ “remarkable fundraising #s” as something of such importance when 13 people have lost their lives to gun violence is part of the problem right there….

      I don’t recall the media being so excited about PBO’s fundraising, in fact, there was a huge push to “get money out of politics” when it was PBO doing the excellent fundraising…right now I’m hearing absolutely NOTHING about money in politics….

      • 96 Dudette

        He (Chris) wisely left off the discussion of fundraising in the broadcast.

          October 1, 2015 at 9:33 pm

          He must have read my post….

          LOL – just kidding, but someone must have knocked some sense into him…or he must have gotten push-back on Twitter to that his “amazing fundraising” announcement.
