Russian Machine Guns, New Jersey Needs More Gun Control and Tweeting Isn’t Enough – TTAG Daily Digest

World Cup fans can buy machine guns ‘no question asked’ in Russian shops if over 18

That’s almost enough to turn us into soccer fans . . .

Pop into this Moscow shopping centre and you can leave with a machine gun in your carrier bag.

If you are over 18, you can snap up a powerful Draganov sniper rifle or AK47, no questions asked.

The gun store is sandwiched between mobile phone and toy shops.

It flogs military weapons that have been de-activated – but the owner said you could get them working again.

Guns, including Kalashnikovs, and Tommy guns, go for around £1,500 each.

Days after signing gun laws, Gov. Murphy faces city reeling from arts festival shooting

It’s almost as if all those gun control laws infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners don’t really do anything at all to stop violent criminals from breaking those laws . . .

Murphy – who signed some of the strictest gun laws in the nation just four days before the violent shooting – reminded Trentonians during the service that through faith and community, “we can rise above this.”

“It’s yet another reminder of the senseless gun violence, even having signed six stringent gun laws last week,” Murphy said at a press conference following the service. “We know we’re getting stronger and better but we’re a long way from getting rid of this senselessness.”

Parkland students make political point in Naperville: ‘Tweeting isn’t enough’

No, you have to lie down in grocery store aisles, too . . .

After attending St. Sabina’s annual end-of-the-school-year peace march and rally Friday, the town hall discussion Saturday at the DuPage Unitarian Universalist Church was the first stop in mobilizing young people to get gun control measures passed. Naperville was chosen because of the NRA’s influence in the area, Grady said.

The goal of the bus tour is twofold: get everyone registered to vote and have in-person conversations about the need for gun control.


A big theme of Saturday’s rally was fighting overreach by the federal government. During his talk, Bundy referred to the U.S. government as tyrannical, and called the federal officials he had encountered “goons.” “Where do I begin?” he said, of the government.

“The founding fathers didn’t want central government,” Bundy said. “And what do we have today? We have a central government with unlimited power–at least thinks they do,” Bundy said. “And then we have a society that turns to the government for everything, cradle to death.”

The rancher also waxed about the importance of having a militia that could resist the government if need be. Bundy also alleged that it was a goal of the government to discourage or get rid of militias in the U.S. “They are trying so hard to whip this militia,” he said.

Texas Campus Carry Teachers 200 Districts Armed

More than 200 Texas districts let school staff carry guns

Not a bad start, but there are 1,023 school districts in the state . . .

That number stood at 172 districts in February, the same month a gunman killed 17 people at a school in Parkland, Florida.

(The Texas Association of School Boards’ Dan) Gonzlez says the number “may continue to grow as districts continue to revise policies” in the aftermath of the May 18 shooting at Santa Fe High School near Houston that left 10 dead.
