Presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) revealed on Wednesday she believes that instituting both a mandatory gun buyback program as well as criminally prosecuting American’s who refuse to hand those firearms over to the government are both “strong” ideas.

“On the assault weapons issue, you have talked openly about being in favor of an assault weapons ban. I’m interested if you are supportive of a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons,” CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked Gillibrand, noting that the proposal was also suggested by her primary challengers Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ)

Gillibrand noted, “I think we should ban assault weapons as well as large magazines, and as part of passing that ban, do a buyback program across the country so that those who own them can be compensated for their money that they spent. But I think both of those ideas are strong.

Reactions:

Not only did Kirsten blast the NRA but she said they care about profit from selling guns.

WATCH:

Kirsten Gillibrand: “The NRA is the worst organization in this country. They care more about their profits than the American people, they care more about selling guns to someone on the terror watch list or w/grave mental illness or who has a violent criminal background”

Here’s the problem…

-NRA is a non-profit & does *not* sell guns

-People opposed banning people who were on the terror watch list from buying guns because it would strip people of their rights without due process

-Violent criminals & grave mentally ill people are already banned from owning guns

More Gillibrand:

Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand: “I will make sure we ban the bump stocks…the assault rifles, the military-style weapons”

-Bump stocks are already banned

-Assault rifles/military style weapons were effectively banned in 1987

Chris Wallace calls out Kirsten Gillibrand over her gun-control plans, noting none of them would have stopped the Virginia Beach tragedy: “Is there anything you could have done that would have stopped this terrible incident?”

Gillibrand: “Yeah, stop being beholden to the NRA”

Kirsten Gillibrand: “Remember, after the shooting in Las Vegas [Trump] said, ‘we’re going to ban the bump stocks.’ Did he ban the bump stocks? No! Because the NRA came crashing down”

Fact: Trump *did* ban bump stocks after the Las Vegas shooting

Kirsten Gillibrand: “The NRA is lying to the American people, it is not about the Second Amendment. … [The NRA] wants to make sure an abuser who has a restraining order against him can buy a weapon”

Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

Published

on

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe has reportedly uncovered “new evidence” that is leading to an expansion of efforts to look into the matter. The evidence was apparently unearthed during a trip Durham took with Attorney General William Barr to Italy. Here are more details from TheBlaze: Sources told Fox News that Durham is now “very interested” in talking to former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics who served in the Obama administration. Barr and Durham traveled to Italy on extremely short notice, according to the Daily Beast. Once at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Barr requested “a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.” Inside that conference room, Barr and Durham reportedly listened a taped deposition from Joseph Mifsud, an Italian Ministry of Justice source told the Daily Beast. Mifsud is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that he had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The reason this is so significant is because Papadopoulos spoke with Fox News where he suggested that Mifsud contacted him “as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.” “So clearly, there was some sort of global or at least European radar on me while I was living in London and as soon as I was joining the Trump campaign — which not even the media knew at the time — I’m being introduced to Joseph Mifsud, in Rome, at a school that trains the CIA and the FBI. So, why I was introduced to Joseph Mifsud, and why this company introduced me to Joseph Mifsud, now that we know they’re connected to MI6 and the FBI, makes things even more suspicious…

New Survey Finds One-Third Of American Jews Hid Religion For Fear Of Anti-Semitism

Published

on

A new survey has discovered that one-third of American Jews have found ways to hide their religion — not wearing clothing or items that would identify them as Jewish — out of fear they would be victims of anti-Semitism. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: In addition to finding that many fear the consequences of openly showing Jewish identity, the survey found almost 90% of respondents believe anti-Semitism is a problem in America, with over 80% saying it has increased in the past five years. The survey, released Wednesday and conducted by the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy group for Jews in the United States, found that worries about anti-Semitism’s rise in recent years was consistently high among all Jewish denominations, including the ultra-Orthodox, modern Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Twenty-five percent of Americans Jews said they sometimes “avoid certain places, events, or situations” out of safety concerns, and over 30% said they have refrained from “wearing, carrying, or displaying things that might help people identify them as Jews.” And while one-third said Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have suffered anti-Semitic attacks or threats, few victims of anti-Semitic incidents report them to the police. As for ascribing blame, American Jews say the Republican Party is more responsible than the Democratic Party for the current state of anti-Semitism in the U.S., and over 70% disapproved of President Trump’s handling of anti-Semitism. Over 80% of respondents said the extreme political Right and, separately, extremism in the name of Islam threaten American Jews, while 64% said the same of the extreme political Left. Another interesting finding from the survey is that American Jews are also more inclined to see negative remarks or actions against Israel as being anti-Semitic. A whopping 84 percent believed the statement “Israel has no right to…
