Gun Violence Prevention, Part 1 (345 hits)

FEBRUARY 6, 2019

Student leaders, safety advocates and Second Amendment supporters testified before the House Judiciary Committee on gun violence prevention, the first such hearing in nearly a decade. Among the witnesses were the Houston chief of police and one of the students who survived the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Toward the end of this part of this hearing, one of the fathers of a victim of that shooting interrupted Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) when he began talking about a U.S.-Mexico border wall as a tactic for stemming gun violence. The committee then took a break for lunch.

But I will remind you, the United States is only 350 million out of 7 billion. How will you get the rest of the world to go along with such a lack of realism?

Ah, the myth of American leadership. China is the leader on climate, not the U.S.

Then The NRA is a myth as well. Now you want to change the subject to climate change. Wasn't we talking about Gun Violence Prevention?

Now get back to your own subject.

What does "Going Green is a good thing for the planet." have to do with gun violence protection? Nothing Ron. I was you who changed the subject.

YOU ASKED THIS QUESTION: But I will remind you, the United States is only 350 million out of 7 billion. How will you get the rest of the world to go along with such a lack of realism?

MY REPLY: Leadership...

THEN YOU SAID: h, the myth of American leadership. China is the leader on climate, not the U.S.

Steve, this was the first mention of climate, and those words came first from YOU. It is right here in BLACK and WHITE for you to reread and STOP THAT LIE YOU JUST TOLD.

THAT IS WHEN I MADE THIS STATEMENT AND ASKED YOU THIS: Then The NRA is a myth as well. Now you want to change the subject to climate change. Wasn't we talking about Gun Violence Prevention?

THEN YOU CAME BACK WITH THIS WEAK AS REPLY: What does "Going Green is a good thing for the planet." have to do with gun violence protection? Nothing Ron.

MY REPLY: It was you who changed the subject and interjected climate Change. Steve, are you back Smocking that BULL💩 again?

You changed the subject Ron. Your first comment on this blog led me to believe you had inadvertently commented on the wrong blog. I could be wrong and you can easily say whether or not that was the case. But I won't engage in some BS conversation as you are now trying to do.
