On Friday, a gunman killed twelve people and wounded six others at a Virginia Beach municipal center.
In typical fashion, Democratic presidential candidates started calling for gun control.
Jane and I are grieving for the victims in Virginia Beach and their families.
The days of the NRA controlling Congress and writing our gun laws must end. Congress must listen to the American people and pass gun safety legislation. This sickening gun violence must stop. https://t.co/iSAtYWg7HH

One of those most bizarre responses came from Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
Yang, who has gained notoriety because of his universal basic income proposal, argued that a UBI would help prevent mass shootings.
He believes that reduced levels of stress would serve as a deterrence for violence.
Is it possible that a disgruntled employee would respond less violently if he was going home to a secure financial future? I’d say that is very possible and even likely over a large number of cases. Stress kills and financial stress kills. Universal Basic Income would save lives.

Yang ignores several inconvenient truths:
- John Lott’s Crime Prevention Research Center notes that “Virginia Beach bans employees from being able to carry gun.”
- Virginia is not exactly a pro-gun paradise as it is ranked 30th in Guns and Ammo magazine for the friendliest states for gun ownership. From a pro-gun perspective, its guns laws are middling at best.
To think that a new government handout will somehow make states like Virginia safer, is the height of wishful thinking. Instead, Virginia should look at liberalizing its gun laws and reinforcing security in public facilities.
With former Vice President Joe Biden rising as the Democratic Party frontrunner, Yang has fallen into obscurity.
He’s now doing his best to remain relevant by politicizing this shooting just like the rest of his Democratic rivals.
As The West Adopts “Wokeism” As New Religion, Russia Bans Homosexual Marriage Permanently
On June 1, 2020, Russia officially enshrined traditional marriage — a union between a man and a woman— in its constitution.
Russia’s new constitution also officially recognizes the role that the Orthodox Church has played in the history and the development of the Russian state.
According to Deutsche Welle, 78 percent of Russian voters pulled the lever in favor of the Constitutional reforms which included the extension of Putin’s term in office and a guaranteed minimum pension.-
Russian President Vladimir Putin made a strong statement to the Russian people, indicating that they were ones in charge of their political destiny:
“I will outline my stand once again. It is clear, unchangeable and absolutely firm: the updated constitution, all the proposed amendments will enter into force only if you approve and support them.”
With this vote casted, Christian marriage is law of the land in Russia.
Unlike its western counterparts, which have embraced political correctness, Russia actually makes efforts to preserve its nation and promote decent values.
If a government is to exist, it should at least promote pro-social behavior and not undermine its historic nation via social engineering or policies that destroy traditional institutions.
Ironically, Russia is one of the few superpowers that gets that.
