Good luck with that, Dianne!

In case you aren’t aware, 50 people were recently murdered at a mosque in New Zealand.

Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA), a liberal to her core, wants the United States to follow in the footsteps of New Zealand and ban “military-style semi-automatic” weapons.

In other words, Dianne wants to ban guns.

In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.

LOOK:

Her full statement…

“In Australia in 1996, 35 people were killed when a gunman opened fire with two semiautomatic assault rifles. In the days following that massacre, Australia banned all semiautomatic rifles and put in place a licensing system.

“In New Zealand last week, 50 people were killed when a gunman used five weapons to open fire in two mosques. Six days after that massacre, New Zealand banned all military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

“In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. If there’s a problem – particularly a deadly problem – it’s contingent upon policymakers to find solutions.

“Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High school, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left 290 wounded. And those are just shootings at schools. We’ve seen massacres in offices, churches, theaters, concerts, malls – all the places that Americans should feel safe, not threatened.

“Despite all these tragedies, Republicans in Congress have repeatedly blocked each and every proposal to enact responsible gun safety laws. Even though 90 percent of Americans support universal background checks, even that proposal is routinely opposed. The power of NRA over Republicans is second to none, and until that hold is broken, Republicans refuse to act.

“To New Zealand and every other country that took steps to reduce gun violence, congratulations. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge. Without action, our country will continue to face these tragic events over and over again.”

Dianne is calling for a ban on the Second Amendment. It couldn’t be more clear.

Like the rest of her liberal contemporaries, Feinstein doesn’t understand the meaning, and the importance, of the right to keep and bear arms.

It’s sad, really, that a person can be elected to such a high office and not comprehend American values.

More on New Zealand, per Fox News:

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday announced the country was immediately banning “military-style semi-automatic weapons” after last week’s attack that killed 50 people at two mosques.

Ardern noted, “As I’ve said, what we’ve done here is taken out the guns out of circulation that are most critical to be addressed urgently and that’s what we’ve announced, with essentially almost immediate effect.

Ardern added: “There is more to be done and tranche two will look at issues around licensing, issues around registration, issues around storage. There are a range of other amendments that we believe do need to be made and that will be the second tranche of reforms yet to come.

This is clearly an impulsive move from the New Zealand government. Liberals will be elated.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.

Michigan Politicians Use Coronavirus as Excuse to Give Themselves Big Pay Raise

Members of the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners used the coronavirus crisis to give themselves a huge pay raise.

Members of the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners used the coronavirus crisis to give themselves a huge pay raise. Using federal COVID-19 relief funds, board members claimed they were using the funds as a way to give back to front line workers by giving those who have been dealing with the coronavirus a pay raise. But what the board didn’t tell anyone is that along with helping front-line workers, they gave themselves a $25,000 per member pay raise too. According to M-Live: Records obtained by MLive-The Flint Journal show “top-level administrators” in the county received $25,000 each from the COVID-19 relief funds awarded to the county while department heads each received $12,500. “Middle management” officials received $5,000 each while chief deputies, Health Department employees, and attorneys received $2,500. The breakdown written by County Coordinator Brian Boggs shows employees identified as “cleaning staff” received $2,000 each and all other employees received $1,000. “It’s a sad day … I feel badly,” said Commissioner Marlene Webster, a Republican who represents a portion of the city of Owosso. “It’s a blow to county workers’ morale at a time when it’s difficult to keep good workers … I think (it shows) a serious lack of acknowledgment of what people did (during the pandemic).” Webster, who voted in favor of the measure, claimed that she did not know she was voting for her own pay raise and said that she didn’t even know she was getting a pay raise until it showed up in her bank account. “I’m mortified. I never would have voted to give myself more than the average (employee) — if anything,” Webster said. On the other hand, several other members of the board blasted Webster for refusing the pay raise. Commissioner Cindy L. Garber and Jeremy R. Root said they had no…
