Texas Governor Greg Abbott has a duty to keep citizens of the Lone Star state safe.

And he’s doing everything he can.

And Democrats will hate it.

On June 6, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed legislation removing the cap on the number of armed teachers allowed in each of the state’s school districts.

Teachers and other school staff in Texas can be armed under the state’s School Marshal program, but the Texas Tribune reported that limits were set for the program so “schools that participate in the program can only designate one marshal per 200 students or one marshal per building.”

The Texas House and Senate addressed the limits during the most recent legislation session, passing House Bill 1387 to end it. Abbott signed the legislation Thursday, thereby opening the door for more teachers to be armed to protect themselves and their students on Texas public school campuses.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is apparently leading President Trump in Texas.

According to the poll, former Vice President Joe Biden leads Trump in the Lone Star State, 48–44 percent.

Trump won Texas in the 2016 election with 52% of the vote.

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand blasted the NRA during her town hall on Fox News. 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”

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
