Fort Worth Mayor Demands Gun Control

Published

on

Texas Scorecard reports that Forth Worth Mayor Betsy Price is joining other mayors and local officials in Texas in calling for stricter gun control legislation.

Price wrote, “I join Mayor of El Paso – Dee Margo, alongside more than 200 other U.S. Mayors, in calling for the Senate to vote on two pieces of legislation that would strengthen background checks and close serious loopholes for gun sales.”

On Price’s Facebook page, she posted a letter that the United States Conference of Mayors sent to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. This letter urged them to pass two gun control bills in the House which would “greatly strengthen the background check system.”

As much as elected officials want to save people from gun violence, research shows that gun control is not effective in reducing gun violence. John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center argues that background checks are not effective in curbing gun violence. Last year, Lott wrote an op-ed for The New York Times arguing that the current “background check system confuses the names of law-abiding individuals with those of criminals, resulting in thousands of ‘false positives’ every year.”

The gun researcher notes that there were over 370,000 gun purchase denials triggered by the background check system from 2006 to 2010. Federal authorities only prosecuted 460 of them, and of those prosecuted, 209 led to convictions

Lott asked an important question:

Why didn’t more of those denials lead to perjury prosecutions?

He added, “According to my analysis, the reason is simple: A high percentage of cases are dropped because the applicant was wrongly denied clearance to buy a gun.”

Indeed, these uncomfortable facts call into question politicians’ impulsive desires to immediately “do something” after these tragedies.

After all, careful research shows that red flag laws have been around for some time in certain states such as Connecticut. In this state’s case, the law was passed in 1999. However, it proved futile in stopping a madman from committing a massacre at Sandy Hook.

The issue of tackling gun violence is not as simple as passing gun control laws.

Bill Gates Believes Everything Won’t be Normal Until there is Widespread Vaccination in America

Published

on

LifeSite News reported that Microsoft founder Bill Gates believes life will not be the same after the Wuhan Virus subsides.

However, there’s a catch.

Things will not go back to “normal” until the population is “widely vaccinated.”

During an  interview with CBS This Morning, that went out on April 2, Gates predicted that people’s concerns about large public gatherings would be alleviated “once we have the vaccination.” This could potentially take 18 months to come about.

“Our foundation works a lot on diagnostics and vaccines,” Gates stated. Vaccine producers are the ones “that can really get things back on track where we’re not worried about large public gatherings.”

In Gates’ view, “there’s a lot of dialog between our foundation experts and the government,” about opening up life to normal activities after the pandemic is under control.

“Which activities, like schools, have such benefit and can be done in a way that the risk of transmission is very low? And which activities, like mass gatherings, may be – in a certain sense – more optional? And so until you’re widely vaccinated, those may not come back at all.”

The Microsoft founder floated 18 months as a possible timeline for a reversion to normalcy.

Gates is a well-known proponent of abortion and population control. He has talked about using vaccines in the past as a means of controlling world’s population.

“Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that [the population] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent,” he said at a 2010 TED  conference.

Some parents are obviously concerned about the implications for parental rights, health, or religious freedoms if a vaccine is introduced.

During the CBS interview, Gates claimed that there are currently “seven or more” potential vaccines that could fight the Wuhan Virus pandemic. In order to guarantee that there are billions of doses of the vaccine available right out of the gate, Gates put forward the idea of building factories that would mass produce each of these vaccines as testing is being conducted concurrently.

Gates admitted that “only probably two of the vaccines will be the ones we go ahead with,” conceding that there exist major risks involved in seeing this plan through.

Gates also commented that a national strategy to the Wuhan Virus pandemic is needed, alluding to what he wrote about in a Washington Post op-ed on April 1.

“Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere. Until the case numbers start to go down across America – which could take 10 weeks or more – no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown,” Gates commented.

In the CBS This Morning interview, Gates stressed the importance of acting quickly after the Wuhan Virus outbreak.

“We understand what needs to be done here. It’s going to be very painful. But taking the pain early means there’s a lot less pain both medically and economically than if we dilly-dally and wait until every town has big numbers before we react.”

Gates said that the Wuhan Virus pandemic will cost trillions of dollars, on top of hundreds of thousands of lives globally when it’s all said and done. “For the next one, we will be far more ready than we were for this one,” he predicted.

As many Americans seek to protect their liberties in a time of uncertainty — as evidenced by the number of people rushing to buy firearms and ammo — globalist oligarchs like Gates are concocting plots to advance crony capitalist projects that will infringe on the rights of millions of Americans.

Gates may have been a great entrepreneur, his politics, on the other hand, are straight out of the globalist playbook.
