"Choke on your thoughts, choke on your prayers" - Rochester City Council Member Patterson.

He speaks loudly and clearly for all decent Americans in his disgust of gun violence....

NBC News
Jul 22, 2022

Rochester police chief says veteran officer Anthony Mazurkiewicz was shot in a 'cowardly ambush' while responding to a call. WHEC's Berkeley Brean reports.


Republicans DO NOT CARE as more Americans live in fear than ever before and more die every day as we slip into moral decay and the hubris of complacency.

Statements by Guardian reporter Justin McCurry:

Japan has close to “zero-tolerance” of gun ownership – an approach that experts say contributes to its extremely low rate of gun crime. There were six reported gun deaths in Japan in 2014, according to the National Police Agency, and the number rarely exceeds 10, in a country of 126 million people. In 2006, just two people were killed in gun attacks.

The 1958 law on the possession of swords and firearms states: “No one shall possess a firearm or firearms or a sword or swords.”

Among the few exceptions are shotguns for hunting and sport. Even then, prospective owners must attend classes and pass written and practical exams. They must then undergo psychological assessments to determine they are fit to own a firearm. Police background checks are exhaustive and even involve questioning the gun owners’ relatives.

Civilian ownership of handguns is banned. The few violations reported in the media usually involve members of the country’s yakuza crime syndicates. According to police, there were 21 arrests for the use of firearms in 2020, with 12 of them gang-related, Nikkei Asia reported.

---------------

Media reports quoted police as saying that the weapon thought to have been used in the attack was homemade. A photograph showed two cylindrical metal parts that appeared to have been heavily bound with black tape lying on the road near the scene of the attack.

No report of PM Abe Shinzo's condition in hospital as of 1:00am EST. Early reports sound extremely grave.

From my experiences, what she said is very true. If one associates with Republicans...

and particularly intimately, sooner or later people seem to become possessed by right-wing and/or Q-demons and it's rare for friends and family to be successful with exorcism. It's characterized by a severe allergic reaction to facts, truth and rationality.

For many, that process of demonization is simply called cult brainwashing....

I believe our nation is long overdue for establishing a nation-wide network of mental health clinics solely for the purpose of re-education of those possessed ones, consisting of classes in American and world history, civics, ethics and government.


Project much, Ms. Karamo?.......
