Murphy signed the new laws in Trenton surrounded by the Democratic legislative leaders who got the legislation passed after the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida on Valentine’s Day that left 17 people dead.
When 17 people were killed by a teenager with an assault rifle at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Valentine’s day, a renewed national debate on gun control laws erupted. Many gun control advocates began pushing anew for a complete ban on assault-style rifles and also large capacity magazines, since these are the items that have been used in most of the mass murders in the United States in recent years.
Bayer AG, the massive German conglomerate, confirmed Saturday that the company will no longer be spending ad dollars to support Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show.
Bayer is at least the 16th company to withdraw sponsorship from “The Ingraham Angle” after the abrasive host attacked Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg last week.
“Bayer US has stopped advertising on Laura Ingraham and we have no plans to resume any time in the future,” the company wrote in a tweet.
After Ingraham mocked Hogg for his college rejections on Twitter, the 17-year-old sent out his own tweet with a list of companies sponsoring Ingraham’s show. The public pressure and bad publicity made almost all of them withdraw as sponsors.
Embattled Fox News host Laura Ingraham announced on her show Friday night that she was taking a break from her show, the Ingraham Angle.
She said it was because of Easter, but that seems a bit too coincidental to be completely true.
According to NBC, Americans are mad. Maybe more mad than they’ve ever been.
A large majority of all Americans — 57 percent — responded to a poll by saying they are outraged. In fact they are so outraged that they would get out of their homes and attend a march and carry a protest sign. At least that is what pollsters found in a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that addressed social trends.
While the Samaritan was the surprising character to show mercy to the man left for dead in the ditch, the real twist came when Jesus asked the lawyer to lay aside his privilege and see the world though the beaten and bruised eyes of a man desperate to save his life.
Who knew that the entitled Trump son-in-law (and future felon) Jared Kushner has a brother who is a good guy? I sure didn’t, and I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t read it in an article in Axios.
Reading the Second Amendment on its face value and in its historical context or original intent, it is clear that these ideas did not fall from heaven but were tied to particular realities of the day.
A new NBC poll released Thursday morning should be a wakeup call to the NRA and its supporters in Washington, including President Trump. Most people think that putting more guns in schools is a really bad idea.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a coward and a crook. Instead of working to pass legislation addressing the gun violence epidemic in our country, he is turning to gutting consumer protections in a banking bill.
Senate Democrats are bullish on background check legislation, they only need 3 more Republicans. There are 4 Republicans being targeted to flip their vote.
You probably didn't know this but gun safety laws are "pagan" and it was prayer that defeated Manchin-Toomey

The GOP: Sodomizing our shared reality - and you

If you buy a gun, opponents of background checks say it's an invasion of privacy. Speaking in the Gallery of the Senate is another matter.
By any measure, America is in decline. The fault lies almost completely with male Republicans. Democratic women must usurp the power.
