This is assinine. The POLICE have guns. They were at the July 4th parade. But they couldn't stop a sniper on a rooftop w/an assault rifle from shooting 70 rounds within seconds at the families below.
Stop w/ the crap that the answer to gun violence is more and more deadly guns!

On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, declaring, “All men are created equal.” Nearly 250 years later, the meaning of those oft-quoted words is still being contested. @mawaldman discussed with @AP.

The Elections Clause is in the Constitution precisely to limit the power of legislatures to act without checks and balances. It aimed to stop gerrymandering and rigged voting rules. (Literally.) 2/3
Replying to @mawaldman
James Madison insisted at Con Con: “It was impossible to foresee all the abuses … Whenever the State Legislatures had a favorite measure to carry, they would take care so as to mould their regulations as to favor the candidates they wished to succeed.” 3/3
 
SCOTUS took the case today that asks whether state legislatures have sole power over election rules. That notion is extreme, historically imaginary, chaotic. If it succeeds it’s one of the most radical power grabs ever. No role for courts, state constitutions, governors, etc. 1/3

“90% of gun laws have been upheld in the last dozen years or so. Those are all at risk,” says @mawaldman about the effect of the SCOTUS decision to strike down a NY concealed carry law.

In practical terms, seems likely there will be a fussilade of lawsuits -- NRA gets a “do-over” on previously approved laws. States, cities, Congress have only vague guidelines for what is allowed. Again, more guns, more violence, more suspicion.
Replying to @mawaldman
All this after we saw "good guy with a gun" is not a real answer. In Buffalo, hero guard shot the killer but his body armor protected him. He killed the guard. In Uvalde, police mistakes abound, but the shooter had a weapon of war.

Even bigger impact on hundreds of gun laws nationwide. The Court said all the other courts -- that have looked at 2A cases and assessed public safety goals as well as indiv right - did it wrong. Need to follow history and tradition above all. Fuzzy, prone to cherry-picked history

SCOTUS remanded to the appeals court to apply its ruling. It seems silent on what exemptions there can be. Subways? Schools? If people are walking around with guns … and think they are “good guys with guns” … they won’t keep them out of the subways no matter what SCOTUS says.

First read of Bruen: Today’s opinion could be the biggest expansion of gun rights by SCOTUS in the country’s history.
It struck down NYS law since early 1900s. There will be more guns, more violence.

Baker’s Watergate quote is overrated. It came rather late in the hearings, and initially he asked the question, thinking the answer would be that the president knew nothing. (He did change his tune when the evidence against Nixon was overwhelming.)
Replying to @fmkaplan @SteveSchmidtSES and 1 otherfalse
He actually asked it, at first, as a way of *insulating* Nixon - if you can't prove he knew something, then the fact that everyone around him was conspiring doesn't reach him, I think, was the idea.

Liz Cheney made an airtight case that Trump sought to overthrow our democracy, broke the law repeatedly, incited a mob to prevent the Electoral Vote count, threatened Vice President Pence, incited a mob to go after him & was fully aware the election was not rigged.

Is Trump planning on going to pay his respects in Uvalde when he’s in Texas or is he just celebrating the guns used to commit mass murder?

The Second Amendment did not come down from Sinai. The right to bear arms will never be more important than human life. Our children have rights too. And our elected officials have a moral duty to protect them.

And any day now, the Supreme Court could issue an opinion in Bruen, the New York concealed carry case, that could upend common-sense gun regulation across the country.
 
The Buffalo mass murder should inspire prayers & also outrage. At easy availability of military weapons. At racist hate, spread so widely, that pollutes so many minds. We're the only country where this happens again & again. (PS, SCOTUS decision on gun rights coming up next.)

(Sometimes leaks wrong. NYT reported front page that US v Nixon would go for the President.)
Replying to @mawaldman
Oops the erroneous NYT story in 1974 said SCOTUS would sharply divide 5-3 with CJ Burger siding with Nixon & thus giving him an "out" to refuse to turn over tapes.

The leak, extraordinary, but not the first big one. Dred Scott likely leaked to Buchanan. In his inaugural he disingenuously said: “To their decision … I shall cheerfully submit, whatever this may be - no matter what.” Shows the magnitude of the issue.

Raises once again the role of SCOTUS in democratic order. Ds have won 7 of 8 popular vote, longest streak in US history, yet Rs appointed 6 of 9 justices. States that have passed laws to criminalize abortion as soon as Roe overturned are among the most gerrymandered.

with SCOTUS revoking national protections we have all become accustomed to – in voting, now abortion , next (hinted in draft) maybe in LGBTQ rights / marriage equality / even contraception. Conservative states would have one social order, the rest of the country another.

If the leaked opinion is accurate, it is of course an extraordinary setback for women and for abortion rights. It also reflects an emerging constitutional order--

I’ve been thinking more and more that newsrooms need to hold an all-staff meeting where they invite democracy experts & historians in & really do a massive reset of how we are covering what’s happening in our country right now. It’s not about partisanship but covering reality.

This ad is clear and unfiltered race-baiting by a major political party whose members are charged with a constitutional obligation to advise and consent. @GOP is this how you treat the first Black woman to be nominated SCOTUS and who is eminently qualified to serve on the Court?
