BREAKING :
NORTHWELL HEALTH, THE LARGEST HEALTH SYSTEM AND LARGEST PRIVATE EMPLOYER IN NEW YORK STATE, HAS ANNOUNCED A RESEARCH STUDY CALLED, BIZARRELY, “WE ASK EVERYONE. FIREARM SAFETY IS A HEALTH ISSUE.” THE PROJECT WILL REQUIRE, AS PART OF ROUTINE SCREENING OF EMERGENCY ROOM PATIENTS, ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT FIREARM OWNERSHIP AND GUNS IN THE HOME. IMPLEMENTATION WILL BEGIN AT THREE NORTHWELL HOSPITALS INITIALLY (TWO ON LONG ISLAND AND ONE ON STATEN ISLAND), WITH PLANS TO EXPAND THE PROGRAM TO INCLUDE “INPATIENT AND AMBULATORY SETTINGS” ACROSS ALL OF ITS FACILITIES.PENNSYLVANIA GOVERNOR TOM WOLF (D-PA.) VETOED TWO GUN BILLS THAT WOULD REPEAL LAWS INTENDED TO CONTROL THE CARRYING OF GUNS AND PREVENT PUBLIC OFFICIALS FROM SHUTTING DOWN FIREARMS SALES DURING EMERGENCY PROCLAMATIONS. THE BILLS, WHICH RECENTLY PASSED THE REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED PENNSYLVANIA STATE SENATE, INTENDED TO LIMIT WOLF'S POWERS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND MOVING FORWARD, AP NEWS REPORTED. WOLF, A DEMOCRAT WHO SUPPORTS BROADER GUN CONTROL MEASURES, HAS PREVIOUSLY VETOED MORE THAN SIX SUCH BILLS.JUSTICE AMY CONEY BARRETT IS JUST STARTING TO MAKE HER MARK AT THE SUPREME COURT. ON WEDNESDAY, HER VOTE FLIPPED THE COURT’S APPROACH TO RESTRICTIONS ON ATTENDANCE AT RELIGIOUS SERVICES DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC. WHILE JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG WAS ALIVE, THE COURT HAD ALLOWED SUCH LIMITS, IN CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA, BY 5 TO 4 VOTES. AFTER JUSTICE BARRETT SUCCEEDED HER, SHE JOINED THE COURT’S FOUR MOST CONSERVATIVE JUSTICES TO STRIKE DOWN RESTRICTIONS IN NEW YORK. THOSE SAME FOUR JUSTICES ARE NOW ON HIGH ALERT FOR A PROMISING CASE IN WHICH TO EXPAND SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.WOLVES’ RETURN TO THE GREATER YELLOWSTONE ECOSYSTEM A QUARTER CENTURY AGO HAS BEEN THE PRIMARY FORCE SUPPRESSING LOCAL MOUNTAIN LION POPULATIONS, A NEW STUDY HAS CONCLUDED. THAT HYPOTHESIS WAS TESTED AND CONFIRMED USING DATA AMASSED OVER THE 16 YEARS THAT THE TETON COUGAR PROJECT TRACKED 147 CATS ON THE EAST SIDE OF JACKSON HOLE. IT WAS ALREADY KNOWN THAT LION NUMBERS IN THIS AREA FELL BY HALF DURING THE STUDY PERIOD, WHICH COINCIDED WITH WOLVES REOCCUPYING THE LANDSCAPE.JOE BIDEN’S GUN-CONTROL PLANS HAVE ABOUT ZERO CHANCE OF GETTING THROUGH CONGRESS, ESPECIALLY IF REPUBLICANS WIN AT LEAST ONE OF THE GEORGIA RUNOFFS. THAT’S GOOD, BECAUSE HIS BRIGHT IDEA FOR RESTRICTING “ASSAULT WEAPONS” WOULD FORCE AMERICA’S GUN OWNERS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN (A) GIVING UP MILLIONS OF THEIR FIREARMS AND MAGAZINES TO A FEDERAL “BUYBACK” AND (B) REGISTERING THOSE GUNS WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, PAYING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN TAXES FOR THE PRIVILEGE.

MN – GUN CONTROL – Gun Control Group To Spend $1 Million To Flip State Senate

A major gun control group with ties to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Tuesday it plans to spend at least $1 million to try to flip the Minnesota Senate to Democratic control and keep the Minnesota House in the hands of lawmakers who back its positions. The Everytown for Gun Safety Victory Fund has targeted the state Senate because Republicans hold just a three-vote majority there. But GOP senators have blocked legislation supported by the Democratic-controlled House and Democratic Gov. Tim Walz for universal background checks on gun sales and a “red flag law” that would allow courts to temporarily confiscate guns from people judged to be an imminent threat to themselves or others. The fund and an affiliated group, Moms Demand Action, are focusing on 12 Senate districts now held by Republicans, mostly in the Twin Cities suburbs, Rochester and St. Cloud. They’re also targeting five GOP-held House districts while trying to defend a dozen legislative seats held by supporters. Their first ad attacks GOP lawmakers for refusing to consider the two gun control bills. Charlie Kelly, a national senior advisor for the fund, said $1 million could go “extraordinarily far” in Minnesota because they need only a net gain of two Senate seats. The targeted districts include some that Walz won in 2018. Coupled with fieldwork by 200,000 Moms Demand Action supporters in Minnesota, he said, they could have an “outsized impact” on the races. “Our boots on the ground were a big part of flipping the House and the governor’s mansion (in 2018) and you’re going to see that again in 2020,” he predicted. The group also claims credit for helping Democrats take control of the full Virginia Assembly in 2019 on an aggressive gun control platform and the enactment of new laws there earlier this year.  [full article]
