Quoted @ZoeTillman

Per another unsealed charging doc: Defendant believed to be a Proud Boys member known as "Spaz," and a witness told investigators that they'd spoken with a group that the def was part of who talked about killing Pelosi and VP Pence if they'd had the chance

"The men said they all had access to firearms."

“Agents on the protective details are drilled in training to focus on one strategy at the sign of danger: They must cover and evacuate the VIP. Yet, on Jan. 6, danger was all around them and streaming through different parts of the building.”

This election cycle, over 100 @MomsDemand volunteer leaders and gun violence survivors ran for elected office and 43 won seats – from town council and school board to U.S. Congress. Here are just a few of their swearing-in photos. We’re so proud of you!!!

Pentagon officials say they’re deeply worried about protests planned for the inauguration next week. About 16 groups — some saying they will be armed and most of them made up of hard-line Trump supporters — have registered to stage protests in Washington.

Quoted @RepBoebert

Rep. Sean Maloney made false and baseless conspiracy claims about me that led to death threats and hundreds of vile phone calls and emails. His comments were extremely offensive, shameful and dangerous.

Um, I’ve never said your name in public, @RepBoebert. Never. Not once. (If you’re going to be a gun nut, you probably shouldn’t go off half cocked.) I’ll tweet the transcript so you can see...but that might be like “a fact”, so might not help you.

The sister of a military veteran who took part in the Capitol riot said radicalization was a familiar phenomenon in her rural Ohio community. “That’s like ground zero. ...I fear him. He’s very skilled in firearms. He was an expert sharpshooter.”

"It's the most poisonous I've ever seen. There's the overall sense that maybe if some of them have guns — and likely the ones who are more into conspiracy theories and QAnon with the pedophilic satanic rings — are we safe from them?” Rep. Don Beyer

I just dropped off 60 gun locks to our district’s school nurses. Soon we will have free gun locks in every school in the district.

The nurse I talked to today said this when she opened the box:

“These are like gold to us. Thank you so much.”

A North Carolina State Highway Trooper is under investigation for a Facebook post calling Black Lives Matter a “racist money laundering hate group.” He also tagged himself as present at last week's "Stop the Steal" rally in Washington, D.C.

Starting this weekend, Delta Air Lines CEO will ban passengers traveling to Washington, D.C., from checking firearms as part of increased security measures ahead of the inauguration. Only law enforcement officials will be exempt from the ban.

After the USSR fell in 1991, Russia chose to bury the crimes of the security services in the name of national harmony. The KGB changed its name, but not its nature. Just 9 years later, a KGB man became president and it was our last meaningful election.

Had fewer than 45,000 votes in 3 key states gone the other way on Election Day, we'd be plunging toward authoritarian rule, and discussing which of Trump's children would take over in 2024. But dodging that bullet won't save us from real bullets.
