The House will vote on an anti-terrorism measure next week that would prevent terror suspects from purchasing guns, House Speaker Paul Ryan told GOP lawmakers Thursday.Time to call or email your Congressman. Well, what are you waiting for?
In a conference call with the House Republican conference, Ryan, R-Wis., outlined a plan to vote on a legislative package that responds to the recent terrorist shootings, including limiting access to firearms by those on federal terror watch lists.
"The terrorism package will include measures to disrupt radicalization and recruitment, and a provision to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns," a GOP aide said.
The measure comes after Ryan earlier this month ordered a House terrorism task force "to look at additional legislative options," following the Orlando terrorist shooting that killed 49 people and wounded 53 others.

I understand newspapers need to make money. There isn't much ad revenue left in the age of craigslist, spam, and the World Wide Web. But the Los Angeles Times and Washington Post have both put up paywalls that prevent me reading news stories. If they think I am going to give money to the house organs of fascism, they are profoundly mistaken.

Latest in the Destroyerman series. If you like the series, you'll like this one. If you haven't read this series, you have to start with number one or you will be lost. It is good stuff and highly recommended.

Dem Rep. Makes a Big Claim About AR-15 Rifle — and Conservative Journalist Offers $50K If He Can Prove ItGrayson makes an unsubstantiated claim. The journalist doesn't challenge him on the claim and it's out there across the airwaves and the internet for the world to here. It must be true 'cus it's on the News. The damage is done. We can prove it a lie over and over but the lies continues 'cuz the media doesn't care. The lie pushes their narrative.
Oh, and Grayson is scum anyway.

Frankly, with the attack ads coming out of both camps, I would have voted for Greg Brannon if I were in that district.
Oh, and Bob Edmunds retained his seat on the NC Supreme Court. I'm OK with that.
