Senators Introduce Assault Weapons Ban (MORE GUN CONTROL)



Senators Introduce Assault Weapons Ban (MORE GUN CONTROL)
Nov 08 2017
WashingtonSenator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and a number of her colleagues today introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2017, a bill to ban the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Joining Senator Feinstein on the bill are Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Al Franken (D-Minn.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) and Bob Casey (D-Pa.).
Senator Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement:

“We’re introducing an updated Assault Weapons Ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote.

“This bill won’t stop every mass shooting, but it will begin removing these weapons of war from our streets. The first Assault Weapons Ban was just starting to show an effect when the NRA stymied its reauthorization in 2004. Yes, it will be a long process to reduce the massive supply of these assault weapons in our country, but we’ve got to start somewhere.

“To those who say now isn’t the time, they’re right—we should have extended the original ban 13 years ago, before hundreds more Americans were murdered with these weapons of war. To my colleagues in Congress, I say do your job.

History

“It’s important to understand how we got where we are today. In 1966, the unthinkable happened: a madman climbed the University of Texas clock tower and opened fire, killing more than a dozen people.

“It was the first mass shooting in the age of television, and it left a real impression on the country. It was the kind of terror we didn’t expect to ever see again. But around 30 years ago, we started to see an uptick in these types of shootings, and over the last decade they’ve become the new norm.

·        In July 2012, a gunman walked into a darkened theater in Aurora and shot 12 people to death, injuring 70 more. One of his weapons was an assault rifle. The sudden and utterly random violence was a terrifying sign of what was to come.
·        In December 2012, a young man entered an elementary school in Newtown and murdered six educators and 20 young children. One of his weapons was an assault rifle. Watching the aftermath of these young babies being gunned down was heartrending.
·        In June 2016, a gunman entered a nightclub in Orlando and sprayed revelers with gunfire. The shooter fired hundreds of rounds, many in close proximity, and killed 49. Many of the victims were shot in the head at close range. One of his weapons was an assault rifle.
·        Last month, a gunman opened fire on concertgoers in Las Vegas, turning an evening of music into a killing field. All told, the shooter used multiple assault rifles fitted with bump-fire stocks to kill 58 people. The concert venue looked like a warzone.
·        Over the weekend in Sutherland Springs, 26 were killed by a gunman with an assault rifle. The dead ranged from 17 months old to 77 years. No one is spared with these weapons of war. When so many rounds are fired so quickly, no one is spared. Another community devastated and dozens of families left to pick up the pieces.

“These are just a few of the many communities we talk about in hushed tones—San Bernardino, Littleton, Aurora, towns and cities across the country that have been permanently scarred.

“And the numbers continue to grow. Between 1988 and 1997, 125 were killed in 18 mass shootings. The next decade, 1998 to 2007, 171 were killed in 21 mass shootings. And over the last 10 years, 2008 to 2017, 437 were killed in 50 mass shootings.

“That’s 89 mass shootings in the last 30 years that snuffed out the lives of more than 700 people. Additionally, many police officers killed in the line of duty are killed by assault weapons, including 1 in 5 officers killed in 2014.

After each shooting, we’re told it’s not the right time to act. We’re told to respect the victims by sitting on our hands. Well, the time for inaction is over.”

Key provisions

·        Bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name. Owners may keep existing weapons.
·        Bans any assault weapon that accepts a detachable ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock. Owners may keep existing weapons.
·        Bans magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which allow shooters to quickly fire many rounds without needing to reload. Owners may keep existing magazines.

Exemptions to bill

·        The bill exempts by name more than 2,200 guns for hunting, household defense or recreational purposes.
·        The bill includes a grandfather clause that exempts all weapons lawfully possessed at the date of enactment.

Other provisions:

·        Requires a background check on any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.
·        Requires that grandfathered assault weapons are stored using a secure gun storage or safety device like a trigger lock.
·        Prohibits the transfer of high-capacity ammunition magazines.
·        Bans bump-fire stocks and other devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at fully automatic rates.

Understanding Sexual Harassment & Other Male/Female Interaction

Understanding Sexual Harassment
& Other Male/Female Interaction

Why do you think the tribal chieftain has fifty wives and the rest of the men in the tribe are lucky if they get mating leftovers?
The tribal chief is most likely an alpha male. Evolution is structured to advance all species. So the healthiest genes are most likely to advance the species. This is true for almost all the species on the planet. The dominant deer stag attracts a herd of does and the dominant silver-back gorilla has many mates. The alpha male lion has several female lionesses to mate with. The females in every species select alpha males as their first choice in mating behavior. If usually monogamous human females commit infidelity they usually cheat with alpha males.
Human female infidelity is significantly less than male infidelity and dramatically less than alpha males. If we eliminate the ethical conditions of this behavior we’re left with a conclusion that the advancement of the human species is facilitated by alpha male sexual behavior.
Another important factor that influences alpha male behavior is that human females are attracted to alpha males far more frequently than non-alpha men. Alpha males are almost never involved in intimidating or pushing female sexuality.  Alpha males don’t need to influence females to have sex with them – females have their own motives for having sex with alpha males. The males who commit sexual harassment are not alpha males. They are non-alpha men who are attempting to mimic alpha male behavior and no wonder their pushiness is unsuccessful and often resisted by women. Alpha male wannabes are not attractive to females.
Women will initiate sex with an alpha male and resist having sex with a non-alpha male, and that behavior is influenced by evolution. Human evolution is not advanced by mating with non-alpha males. Since only about less than 10% of males are alpha, and they are biologically designed to mate with as many females as they can find, it is not surprising that human mating behavior is proactively dominated by alpha males.
From an evolution point of view, if human mating behavior had been determined by females, the human race would have died a long time ago. So we can rationally conclude that sexual aggressiveness is initiated by non-alpha males.

And now you know why the tribal chieftain has fifty wives.

Gloria Allred’s Blunder on Roy Moore’s Yearbook Challenge



Gloria Allred’s Blunder on Roy Moore’s Yearbook Challenge
by Joel B. Pollak 16 Nov 2017
Gloria Allred is a highly accomplished, if controversial, lawyer who is admired — or reviled — for her sensational representation of women who are alleged victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment. Yet on Wednesday she committed a major blunder when she declined a public invitation by the attorney representing Roy Moore, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, to have a key piece of evidence examined by independent experts.

Earlier that afternoon, attorney Phillip L. Jauregui questioned some of the claims by Allred’s client, Beverly Young Nelson, who emerged Monday to accuse Moore of sexual assault several decades ago. In particular, Jauregui said that Nelson’s claim that she had no subsequent contact with Moore was false, because he had adjudicated her divorce in 1999. And he challenged a signature in Nelson’s high school yearbook that she claimed was Moore’s.

Jauregui noted that handwriting experts “can’t look at a copy on the Internet … they’ve got to look at an original.” He demanded that Allred release the yearbook to a “neutral custodian” so that a “professional expert” could examine it to determine whether the signature was genuine — or, as he contended, a “fraud.” He said that Allred would be free to send her own handwriting expert to examine the yearbook and the signature for herself.

Allred then called into CNN, reaching Wolf Blitzer live on The Situation Room. She said that she would be willing to submit the yearbook to “an independent expert or experts” — but only once her client and Moore had testified under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Select Committee on Ethics before the election. She would not agree to have the yearbook examined otherwise, claiming “we’re not going to be distracted.”

That was a major mistake. By trying to use the yearbook — the critical piece of evidence in establishing Nelson’s credibility — as leverage to force a Senate hearing before the election, Allred seemed to put politics ahead of the truth. Worse, she opened herself and her client to questions about whether they have something to hide. Whatever the truth of Jauregui’s claims that the yearbook signature is a “fraud,” Allred lent those claims greater credibility.

Allred also gave Moore’s supporters a reason to stand behind him. It will be difficult, at best, to discover what really happened three or four decades ago. All the public can rely on is the credibility of Moore and his accusers today. And while Moore has given inconsistent answers, all he needs to do to survive until Election Day is to create some doubt about the allegations. Allred gave him that opportunity — to the detriment of her client and other accusers.

Let’s connect the dots:
