    This poor man being harassed.
    I assume you've researched it rather than just taking a Twitter post at face value.
    I've noticed recently that there seems to be a lot of disinformation on social media.

    That depends on who the sources are, and who you go to though.

    They still have the authentic blue check mark, and also I don't grab information from anybody out there.

    Julians site is his site, but I get what your are saying and why.

    Aside from the meme, I always provide links.

    Don’t let anyone tell you that there isn’t hope. That we can’t fight for change and win. There is and we can. We CAN get gun safety reforms to save lives if our leaders show courage.

    "What if the finance industry — credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard and American Express; credit card processors like First Data; and banks like JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo — were to effectively set new rules for the sales of guns in America?'

    For example, Visa, which published a 71-page paper in 2016 espousing its “corporate responsibility,” could easily change its terms of service to say that it won’t do business with retailers that sell assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, which make semiautomatic rifles fire faster. (Even the National Rifle Association has said it would support tighter restrictions on bump stocks.)

    If Mastercard were to do the same, assault weapons would be eliminated from virtually every firearms store in America because otherwise the sellers would be cut off from the credit card system." - New York Times

    "Forget about background checks. In Maryland you essentially have to go through a licensing process that can take months to even purchase a gun for your home (not to carry). Look at the results. Baltimore is the most violent city in the country" - President Trump

    The White House meeting today shows the difference between the whacky Liberal's and their stupid solutions and the genius of President Trump. He is going to arm the teachers as that is the only way to stop a shooter. It takes 7 to 10 minutes before th cops to respond. That is wasted time.

    Two of the worst solutions:

    one: Load Teachers with weapons.

    Yea, let's make them the first target.

    two: Metal detectors, x ray machines and lots and lots of security guards.

    First of all, Republicans would make teachers buy their own weapons.

    Second, those machines and extra guards would never happen. Republicans would never, ever allow that much money to be spent on other people's children, which to Republicans,is just a waste of money. We have needy billionaires we have to help first.
