At this time of uncertainty, worry, and anxiety, it is expected that we will see people focusing on doing what they need to do in order to provide for themselves and their families. Many people are running out to buy up all the sanitation products, food, and other necessities.
For many, this alone is a difficult endeavor. Living paycheck to paycheck with little or no room for extra, unexpected expensive makes it very difficult to spend the extra lump sum needed to prep for a less than ideal chain of events.
Even those who can afford to stock up on things, and are doing fine this week, may not have paychecks coming in the near future due to having to take off work. One group expected to feel such hit are those who work in stadiums on NBA game days.
Due to the NBA suspending the rest of its season, individaual teams no longer have the need for stadium workers. No need for workers equals no pay for workers.
Fortunately, for those who were scheduled to work in the Americna Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, the lack of work during this viral outbreak will not result in lack of pay.
Omar Villafranca reported via Twitter that he has received some generous news form Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
Talked to Dallas Mavs owner [Mark Cuban] this afternoon. Despite suspended NBA season, [Cuban] plans to pay Mavs game day arena workers who make games possible. When asked if it’s coming from his own pocket, he said ‘Yes. I’m going to be OK.’

In the midst of the chaos and worry due to the coronavirus scare, as well as the over politicization of the related events, it’s great to see a business owner step up and help those who have contributed to his brand.
This charitable contribution may be a drop in the bucket for a wealthy man like Cuban, but it definitely helps to show his appreciation to those workers and will likely go a long way for those wondering how they were going to replace their much needed income.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
