Fox News deliberately avoids truth about gun violence

June 4, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Fox News works feverishly to come up with mass-killing causes and solutions that don’t include guns:  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/5/26/2100569/-Tucker-leads-Fox-parade-of-feverish-denial-that-AR-15-massacres-have-anything-to-do-with-guns?detail=emaildkre Fox News offers up 49 of the most pathetic ‘solutions’ to gun violence after Texas massacre:  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/5/26/2100500/-Fox-News-offers-up-49-of-the-most-pathetic-solutions-to-gun-violence-after-Texas-massacre?detail=emaildkre This occurred in 2018:  Las Vegas shooter was a right-wing terrorist, but media & others fail to say so:  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/5/21/1766015/-Police-documents-about-the-Las-Vegas-shooter-say-he-s-a-right-wing-terrorist-but-no-one-will-say-so?detail=emaildkre

Uvalde, Texax, police disprove the “good guys with guns” remedy

May 29, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The gun lobby likes to say that the remedy for “bad guys with guns” is “good guys with guns.”  Unfortunately, the police department of Uvalde, Texas, disproved that when they refused to enter an elementary school where an active shooter was murdering many students and two teachers. This example also violated the slogan painted on many police car doors:  “To protect and serve.” Here are many posts in a few days since the mass murders on May 24, 2022, at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas:   ‘Please send the police now’: Uvalde student called 911 multiple times during shooting:  […]

ABOLISH THE FILIBUSTER in order to reduce gun violence and solve MANY other problems!

May 29, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

On MANY, MANY issues, the American people want to solve problems, but Senate Republicans (and “Democrats” Manchin and Sinema) keep using the filibuster to PREVENT the Senate from solving them!!! I remember the 1960s when racist Southern Democrats used the filibuster to prevent passing Civil Rights legislation.  In the late 1960s the parties flipped, and now it is the Republican Party that is extremely racist. Now Republican senators use the filibuster to PREVENT solving problems related to the environment, climate, poverty, racial justice, voting rights, health care, gun violence, economic justice, and many other issues. EXAMPLE:  GUN VIOLENCE:   Republicans keep […]

Assault weapons are designed and used ONLY for mass murder!

May 29, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Assault weapons have ONLY ONE purpose:  TO MURDER AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE!  Assault weapons are NOT for hunting and NOT for target practice!  They are ONLY FOR MASS MURDER!  CONGRESS MUST IMMEDIATELY BAN assault weapons! Odessa. Dayton. Aurora. Parkland. Poway. Orlando. Las Vegas.  Tree of Life Synagogue. Sandy Hook. Umpqua Community College.Waffle House. Texas Church. San Bernardino. These are just some of the deadliest mass shootings in America, and they all have one thing in common: the shooter used an AR-15-style weapon. Assault weapons like the AR-15 are the weapon of choice for mass shooters […]

U.S. militarism sets a BAD EXAMPLE for ordinary people to think that shooting people solves problems!

May 29, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The American people are alarmed and outraged by gun violence.  But they — and nearly all gun safety groups — OVERLOOK “THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM” that persistently REINFORCES AND PROMOTES gun violence. THE U.S. GOVERNMENT’S FOREIGN POLICY AND BUDGET AGGRESSIVELY PROMOTE SHOOTING (and bombing) in THE MISTAKEN ASSUMPTION THAT VIOLENCE SOLVES PROBLEMS. The government SETS A BAD EXAMPLE that ordinary Americans follow when they shoot people in a vain attempt to solve their problems. If we want to reduce gun violence in the U.S., we must change U.S. foreign policy to TRULY PROMOTE PEACE INSTEAD OF MILITARY VIOLENCE! Just […]

Second Amendment is NO EXCUSE for individual shootings!

May 29, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Which “well regulated militia” did any of the mass murderers belong to? The Second Amendment is IRRELEVANT to justifying their shootings! People who oppose reducing gun violence claim the Second Amendment prevents any sensible laws from being passed.  This is an ABSOLUTELY FALSE justification for failing to reduce gun violence. The Second Amendment explicitly says its purpose is to protect “a well regulated militia.”  Back in the late 1700s the U.S. did NOT have a “standing army.”  Our nation’s founders actually opposed having a “standing army” because it would lead to unnecessary wars.  The Revolutionary War was fought by ordinary […]

Republicans like to SAY they are “the party of Lincoln,” but they DO THEY OPPOSITE!

May 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Republicans like to SAY they are “the party of Lincoln, but actually they DO THE OPPOSITE!   Lincoln freed the slaves and fought the Civil War to end slavery, BUT: Republicans allow their party members to bring Confederate flags to Republican Party events. Republicans pass laws to prevent teaching school children about racial discrimination in U.S. history. Republicans have prevented immigrants from African nations. Republicans vigorously oppose efforts to reduce gun violence, even though Lincoln himself was murdered by a gun.   If Republicans REALLY were “the party of Lincoln, they would STRONGLY SUPPORT: Black Pride Black Lives Matter Teaching […]

Gun violence: These facts and numbers are alarming.

March 25, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Many non-profit organizations are working to reduce gun violence.  Here are some alarming facts they have provided recently:   I’ve seen from many sources that the National Rifle Association (NRA) is the aggressive lobby for gun manufacturers, but it does NOT represent the views of ordinary gun owners.  Guns Down America (www.gunsdownamerica.org) reported these facts: “[T]he vast majority of gun owners actually support most popular gun reform legislation.” ALSO:  “86 percent of gun owners support requiring background checks for all guns sold in the United States.”  ALSO:  According to a recent survey, 76 percent of gun owners support safe storage […]

Some ironies about guns

November 28, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Guns do NOT keep us safe: Many people believe that they need guns to protect their own safety, their homes, their families.  Actually, having a gun in your home is MORE DANGEROUS than not having one! Research has shown that having a firearm in your home DOUBLES THE RISK that you or a family member will die of homicide and TRIPLES THE RISK of suicide. These facts came from www.GVPedia.org, which researches and gathers information and supports evidence-based policies that reduce gun violence. The organization says defensive gun use is actually rare. There are about 2,000 verified defensive gun uses per […]
