Resistance Revival Chorus: "Well I went down to the NRA, And I took back what they stole from me

We are a collection of more than 60 women who come together to sing protest songs in the spirit of collective joy and resistance.

Brett Kavanaugh wants to make it even easier for gunmen to obtain assault rifles

And he's probably got the votes to do it.

On Saturday, a man in El Paso, Texas, walked into a Walmart and murdered 20 people. He used an AK-47, a kind of assault rifle. Less than a day later, another man in Dayton, Ohio, murdered nine people in a bar. That shooting lasted less than a minute, but the gunman reportedly was able to rapidly attack his victims in part because he used a “high-capacity” weapon.

Meanwhile, if President Donald Trump’s most recent appointment to the Supreme Court gets his way, both assault rifles and high-capacity magazines will soon enjoy special constitutional protection. It is likely, moreover, that Justice Brett Kavanaugh has the five votes he needs to make this happen.

In 2008, not long after the Supreme Court struck down its much stronger gun regulations, the District of Columbia passed an emergency law that, among other things, banned assault rifles and high-capacity magazines within the District. The law was challenged, and the challenge eventually reached a panel of three Republican appointees on the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Two of those judges upheld the law.

The third judge was Kavanaugh. In his dissent, Kavanaugh called for a sweeping expansion of the Second Amendment, beyond even what his two Republican colleagues were willing to endorse. Regarding assault rifles, the future Trump appointee argued that these weapons should enjoy the same nearly unassailable level of level of constitutional protection the Supreme Court afforded to handguns in its 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller.



Kellyanne Conway chimes in: Finger-pointing, name-calling & screaming with your keyboards is easy...

We need to come together, America.

Finger-pointing, name-calling & screaming with your keyboards is easy, yet...

It solves not a single problem, saves not a single life.

Working as one to understand depraved evil & to eradicate hate is everyone’s duty. Unity.
Let’s do this.


Protestors interrupt McConnell event in Kentucky with 'Moscow Mitch' chants

Source: The Hill

Protesters interrupted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as he spoke during a political picnic on Saturday with chants of “Moscow Mitch.”

The nickname, which was popularized last month after McConnell blocked another set of election security bills, has followed McConnell recently after a Washington Post columnist called the senator a “Russian asset” and “Moscow Mitch” trended on Twitter.

McConnell was apparently unfazed by the protestors Saturday during his speech at the St. Jerome Catholic Church’s annual political picnic in Fancy Farm, Ky., according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

“I’m going to spend as much time talking about [Democrats] as Kentuckians will voting for them this November — none,” McConnell said.
