I'm dying here ... watching a stream of my grand daughter's preschool graduation and I started

... to think of the kids and teachers in Texas. Fuck the NRA, fuck those bastards for blocking background
checks, and fuck those people who can't read the 2nd amendment.

NRA Was 'Foreign Asset' To Russia Ahead of 2016, New Senate Report Reveals

The National Rifle Association acted as a "foreign asset" for Russia in the period leading up to the 2016 election, according to a new investigation unveiled Friday by Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.

Drawing on contemporaneous emails and private interviews, an 18-month probe by the Senate Finance Committee's Democratic staff found that the NRA underwrote political access for Russian nationals Maria Butina and Alexander Torshin more than previously known — even though the two had declared their ties to the Kremlin.

The report, available here, also describes how closely the gun rights group was involved with organizing a 2015 visit by some of its leaders to Moscow.

Then-NRA vice president Pete Brownell, who would later become NRA president, was enticed to visit Russia with the promise of personal business opportunities — and the NRA covered a portion of the trip's costs.

*******
In 2016 the NRA spent almost 1/2 a billion $s of almost all Russian money to install Trump and the many of the
current GOP senators. See The Moscow 8.

Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act

This bill establishes a process for the licensing and registration of firearms. It also prohibits the possession of certain ammunition and large capacity ammunition feeding devices.

First, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives must establish (1) a licensing system for the possession of firearms or ammunition, and (2) a registration system for firearms.

In addition, the Department of Justice (DOJ) must establish and maintain a publicly available database of all registered firearms.

Next, the bill creates licensing requirements for the possession of a firearm and ammunition. DOJ shall issue such a license if the individual is 21 years of age or older, undergoes a criminal background check and psychological evaluation, completes a certified training course, and has an insurance policy. It also outlines the circumstances under which DOJ must deny a license (e.g., the individual was hospitalized with a mental illness).

It also establishes additional requirements for an antique firearm display license and a military-style weapons license.

The bill generally prohibits and penalizes the possession of a firearm or ammunition unless the individual complies with licensing and registration requirements. Further, it prohibits the transfer of a firearm or ammunition to an unlicensed person.

Finally, it generally prohibits and penalizes (1) the possession of ammunition that is 0.50 caliber or greater, and (2) the possession of a large capacity ammunition feed device.

18 children and 1 teacher.

This is what real leadership looks like:

78,000 pounds of infant formula arrives in U.S.

Sunday’s flight brought 15 percent of the specialty medical grade formula needed in the U.S., a White House official says.



This is what REAL LEADERSHIP looks like. BTW why do we have a shortage of formula?

1) D. Trump and his fucking with NAFTA and his “trade wars.”

b) We gave Abbott Labs billions of $s in tax cuts so they could upgrade their Michigan Factory but the execs used that money to buy back their own stock.
