That popping sound you hear is not gunfire it’s conservative heads exploding. 

Courtesy of the LA Times:

The L.A. City Council passed an ordinance Tuesday requiring companies that have contracts with the city to disclose whether they have ties to the National Rifle Assn., already prompting threats of a lawsuit.

The vote was 14 to 0. Councilman Jose Huizar was absent.

Prospective contractors now must disclose under affidavit any contracts or sponsorships they or their subsidiaries have with the NRA. The city has similar policies about companies involved in the construction of President Trump’s proposed border wall and over the historic investment in or profits from slavery.

The ordinance on the NRA was sought by Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, who cited several recent mass shootings in the U.S. At Tuesday’s meeting, he said the NRA has “been a roadblock to gun safety reform at every level of government now for several decades.”

Several gun safety groups who support the NRA ordinance gathered with O’Farrell outside City Hall before the vote.

“Let’s take a look at who we’re doing businesses with who is doing business with the NRA,” said Margot Bennett, executive director of Women Against Gun Violence.

Well as somebody who is anti-mass shootings I applaud this effort. 

Of course, the NRA claims that they are going to take the city of Los Angles to court over this, but they cannot even afford to provide coffee for their employees so I would not sweat it.

    “Baptist pastor close to Donald Trump claimed on a right-wing radio show that evangelicals who don’t support the president are as bad as Christians who aided and abetted Nazis during World War II.

    The Dallas Observer reported that Pastor Robert Jeffress, a member of Trump’s evangelical advisory board, trashed “moronic” and “spineless” never-Trump Christians in an interview with conservative radio personality Todd Starnes.

    His criticisms stemmed from those evangelicals’ lack of support for the president who he believes will end abortion.

    “This is an issue of life and death,” Jeffress said. “This is so black and white, so much about good versus evil. I don’t get it.”

    “We cannot afford to be like German Christians who, in the rise of the evil reign of Adolf Hitler, just remained neutered. They remained silent. And you saw what happened there,” the pastor added. “I think there’s a similar wave of godlessness that is rising in our country right now and we must push back against that tide.”<Rawstory

      Abortion is a rejection of nature. It is ignorant. There are ZERO instances where it is in accordance and harmony with nature. Zero.

      I have never been a republican.
      I am a former democrat.
      I have no party preference.

      Make no mistake, this is not an assault on women or freedom or choice or rights: those are concerns of the particular, and of the political. It is an observance of, and attendance to, nature itself. It is what we are.

    OT/
    https://www.politicususa.com/2019/02/13/twitter-hammers-trump-after-revelation-that-he-installed-a-50000-golf-simulator.html

    “President Trump couldn’t go to Mar-a-Lago during the government shutdown, so he had a $50,000 golf video game installed at the White House, likely at the EXACT same time 800,000 federal employees were without pay.”

    So “executive time” accounts for 60% of his hours in the WH. How much for virtual golf?
    WE HAVE NO ONE AT THE HELM OF THE SHIP, PEOPLE!!!

    The NRA and Aparteid. They did the same thing by cutting ties with any company that supported Aparteid. Seems so poetical that the NRA should be treated the same way, as the social pariah it is.

    Nope, not against guns or the Second amendment. Just agains the NRA. It is far from the organization it was founded to be. The NRA is now a terrorist organization.
