What Can Be Done About the Mass Shootings?

Map Of Mass Shootings In 2021

I was watching a Ron Paul television commercial in which the father of Senator Rand Paul was peddling a Stanberry Research financial planning program that is based on a prediction of an imminent financial collapse.  It was virtually identical to the same fearmongering ads in past years.  No such collapse happened.  But if you predict a financial turn down often enough, you will eventually be correct.

Blue Lives Matter Protest

As predicted … there is a SHARP rise in major crimes in our big cities.  We see some reporting on the growing problem – more in the conservative media and less in the progressive media.

State Rep. Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) introduced the bill. She deceptively named it the…
