Trump backs gun-control bill February 20, 2018 at 10:43 a.m.

Boy howdy....the National Assault Weapon Association is gonna have a cow about this infringement of their sacred rights. Or is it the National Gun Association? None of this stuff sure aint about hunters and their hunting rifles or muskets!

Trump places Russia blame on Democrats, denies doubts about source of meddling February 19, 2018 at 7:08 a.m.

Trump's relying on fiction over fact is one reason his tweeting has been referred to as a "tweetstorm" - because it's a sh*tstorm of tweets. With Trump, instead of calling it Fact Check, it ought to be labeled Fiction Check. His grasp on reality is almost non-existent.

Florida grief turns into activism; ralliers call for changes to gun laws February 18, 2018 at 9:56 a.m.

Vox populi.
**
Things to consider as politicians issue bromides about mental health, school safety, the futility of gun control laws and related topics:
--
* The Republican Congress and Donald Trump last year rolled back Obama-era rules that made it harder for people with mental illness to purchase a gun.
--
* The Trump budget would slash federal spending on school safety programs. And more here on the emptiness of Trump administration talk of school safety.
--
* The Trump budget cuts spending on a range of mental health programs.
--
Finally, and most of all, it is not an easy matter to prevent someone without a criminal record from owning a gun in the U.S. And given the unchecked ways that people can purchase weapons in private sales, it's not so easy to bar criminals either.

If you don't think restricting access to assault weapons helps, then you are unaware that such an action did work in Australia and did reduce such associated shootings.

So....are you more focused on protecting guns or on protecting people from guns?

Sheriff's report: Suspect confessed to Florida school attack February 15, 2018 at 12:45 p.m.

You're going to get a lot of data and opinions regarding gun-free zones and crime, etc. And they will differ in their conclusions. And with no clear-cut definitions, data can easily be cherry-picked and baked into a cherry pie that serves its proponents enough to fill them up - the problem is how many of those "factual" calories are empty.

Will readily admit that some of the above lean toward better gun laws and public safety. Still, the best overall look at the various research reports is this one:

(And despite rants from wingnuts that Politifact is liberal, that is not supported by the evidence. At worst, it's just the slightest bit left of center when rated on accuracy and bias - getting very high marks for factual accuracy. At best, it's about as honest as you're going to get.)

Fake generals have fake authority. Don't argue with a fake.

Fake generals don't know sh*t.

It's difficult enough for trained soldiers to handle themselves while under fire. To expect civilians to do so with a minimal of training, almost no experience, and under duress -- someone is not only lying to us, he's lying to himself.
--
The divisiveness in our culture, the ultra-availability of firearms, the lack of sensible gun regulation, the failures both by our leaders and by the citizenry to deal with this issue from all possible angles, and the apathetic tolerance that allows these horrific occurrences to happen more and more often -- this is the real craziness that needs to be addressed.
--
Maybe we'll stop sending all these kids to an early grave. But, let's be honest - the second amendment has been turned into a political tool to protect guns, not people.
Not our friends, not our parents, not our siblings, not our neighbors.
And not our children.

FBI contradicts White House on investigation of former aide accused of domestic abuse February 13, 2018 at 7:12 p.m.

Late news: White House Is Agreeing with FBI version & playing shift the blame game (in other words, "playing dumb")
**
WASHINGTON — The White House's explanation of how allegations of domestic abuse against a top aide failed to significantly affect his security clearance evolved again Tuesday as it shifted blame to an internal personnel security office.
The move came hours after the head of the FBI appeared to publicly contradict the administration's previous defense.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday the "White House personnel security office" — the administration's first reference to that office — did not fully pass FBI reports about those allegations to top West Wing aides because staffers had not yet made a final recommendation on Porter's security clearance.

Is this confusing our DUDs? Will they backtrack, shift tactics, give another version of the "truth", and then stick their brain back into DT's rump once again??
DT farts and DUDs tell everyone that he's playing a symphony.

I'll trust just about anybody over Donald "Pathological Liar" Trump. Anyone dumb enough to believe Trump is a fool. Fooled once, fooled twice......fooled hundreds of times and still getting fooled. Dupes under Donald - DUDs for short.
