Memes, Connecticut, and Record: Cassie de Pecol, 27 anni ha visitato tutti i 196 Paesi del Pianeta in soli 18 mesi, stabilendo un record assoluto. o- 42 INSANECURIOSITY Chi di voi vorrebbe fare lo stesso record?! Sinceri peró 😜😍🤗 Cassandra de Pecol alla fine ce l'ha fatta: a 27 anni è riuscita a visitare tutti i 196 Paesi del pianeta in soli 18 mesi, stabilendo il record come prima donna a compiere una simile impresa. Partita nel luglio del 2015 dal suo paese natale in Connecticut, dopo una crisi esistenziale e la decisione di dare un senso alla sua vita, ha viaggiato in solitaria con un sogno: quello di mettere la sua bandierina in ogni stato del mondo,battendo il record maschile detenuto da Yili Liu, riuscito nell'intento di visitare il pianeta in poco più di tre anni. Il suo desiderio alla fine si è avverato: la giovane globetrotter ce l'ha fatta, anche se - ammette - "non è stato così facile come potrebbe sembrare". La sua avventura, soprannominata "Expedition 196", è stata seguita da centinaia di utenti sui social network, che hanno preso ispirazione dalla sua scelta. Dalla Corea del Nord all'Australia, dalla Thailandia alla Siria: la giovane si è trovata non soltanto di fronte a scenari e a culture sempre nuove, ma anche davanti a sfide e a problemi. L'incoraggiamento da parte della rete è stato, quindi, fondamentale. Alcuni utenti, però, si sono mostrati scettici di fronte al suo stile di vita "da vacanza": come riuscire a compiere un viaggio simile in così poco tempo? E a quale prezzo? Per coronare il suo sogno, Cassie ha speso circa 198mila dollari, una somma che è stata coperta quasi interamente dagli sponsor. Molte grandi aziende non hanno esitato a supportarla: d'altronde quella che stava tentando era un'impresa unica nel suo genere. ______________________________ curiosita curiosità viaggiare viaggi record ragazza mondo viaggio girodelmondo geografia scuola vita

Your Son, your own flesh and blood don't want nothing to do with you! You haven't had a hit song on radio in who knows when and you're definitely not hot enough to even sell records anymore so Interscope dropped you. You are jealous of any rapper, athlete or entertainer that's hot or got something going on for themselves. You are a certified snitch and we got paperwork to prove it. You talk about Ja-Rule but you stole his whole style and ran with it! You're the only self proclaimed gangster that's never put in work!

Friday, Heroin, and Memes: CHCA U.S. NEWS OXY ART PROTEST Jun 25 | A 10 foot long sculpture made to look like a spoon used to cook heroin was unloaded outside of Purdue Pharma's headquarters Boston-based sculptor Domenic Esposito unloaded a 10 foot long sculpture of a spoon intended to resemble the the utensil used to cook heroin in front of Purdue Pharma’s headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. Purdue Pharma are the makers of the painkiller OxyContin, and have received a lot of criticism from legislators, regulators and relatives of the dead about their drug leading to dependency and serving as a gateway to other narcotics like heroin. ___ The spoon sculpture was unveiled Friday morning, and was removed that afternoon on orders of the police. The gallery owner, Fernando Luis Alvarez, was arrested and led away in handcuffs after refusing to move the spoon sculpture that was blocking Purdue’s driveway. “I think this is an important matter,” Mr. Alvarez said. “People are dying.” ___ Purdue spokesman, Robert Josephson said in a statement: - “We share the protesters’ concern about the opioid crisis and respect their right to peacefully express themselves.” ___ Esposito spent about six weeks rendering the spoon from steel. The artist said it was intended to reflect the experience of a relative who started to use OxyContin and Percocet experimentally before turning to heroin. ___ Photo: Gregg Vigliotti | The New York Times

Arguing, Memes, and New York: WE March u Today, We Count! Fill it Out Mail it Back 2010census.gov cReek U.S. NEWs THE 2020 CENSUS Mar 28 The 2020 census will ask if taker is a U.S. citizen, causing at least 12 states to file lawsuits. The U.S. Census Bureau announced on Monday they will be including a question to the 2020 census that asks if the taker is a U.S. citizen. The decision caused at least 12 states to sue in order to stop it from being implemented. Individuals opposing the addition argue that it will deter immigrants from participating, which will skew the results. The Constitution requires all residents to be counted regardless of citizenship status. New York state attorney general Eric T. Schneiderman is leading a multi state lawsuit to stop the move. Officials in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Washington plan to follow suit. California filed a separate lawsuit Monday night. ___ Census results are used to determine political boundaries, as well as school boards and House seats. The census also decides where federal grants and subsidies are allocated. Attorney Schneiderman says that the change “will create an environment of fear and distrust in immigrant communities that would make impossible both an accurate census and the fair distribution of federal tax dollars.” ___ Photo: Jason E.

The total firearms murder rate that year was 0.3/100,000. From 1980-1995, Australian firearms deaths dropped from 4.9/100,000-2.6/100,000 without the implementation of firearms laws. This is a rate of decline that has remained fairly constant; Looking at 1996-2014, in which the rate has dropped from 2.6-0.86, it shows that the decline has been slower in a longer period of time since the law’s passing. Likewise, homicides declined more quickly in the 15 years prior to the firearms laws (0.8-0.3) than in the 18 years since it (0.3-0.1). This just indicates that firearms deaths haven’t been noticeably affected by the legislation you’ve claimed has done so much to decrease gun crime. <br/></p> <p>It should also be noted that around the same time, New Zealand experienced a similar mass shooting, but did not change their existing firearms laws, which remain fairly lax; even moreso than some American states like California, New York, or Connecticut. Despite this, their firearms crime rate has declined fairly steadily as well, and they haven’t experienced a mass shooting since.</p> <p>The <i>“australia banned guns and now they’re fine”</i> argument is really old and really poorly put together. Gun control is little more than a pink band-aid on the sucking chest wound that is America’s social and economic problems. It’s a ‘quick fix’ issue used by politicians to skirt around solving the roots of the violence problem in the United States, which are primarily poverty, lack of opportunities, and lack of education.</p> <p>You could ban guns tomorrow nationwide and gun violence and overall violent crime would not be reduced at all.</p> <p><i>[this segment brought to you by <a href="http://tmblr.co/m9F_132GzodNt-UaipnK67g">cerebralzero</a>]</i></p> <p>In 2005 the head of the New South Wales Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research, Don Weatherburn,<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-37">[37]</a></sup> noted that the level of legal gun ownership in NSW increased in recent years, and that the 1996 legislation had had little to no effect on violence</p> <p>In 2006, the lack of a measurable effect from the 1996 firearms legislation was reported in the British Journal of Criminology. Using ARIMA analysis, Dr Jeanine Baker and Dr Samara McPhedran found no evidence for an impact of the laws on homicide.<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-40">[40]</a></sup></p> <p>A study coauthored by Simon Chapman <b>found declines in firearm‐related deaths before the law reforms</b> accelerated after the reforms for total firearm deaths (p=0.04), firearm suicides (p=0.007) and firearm homicides (p=0.15), but not for the smallest category of unintentional firearm deaths, which increased.<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-43">[43]</a></sup></p> <p>Subsequently, a study by McPhedran and Baker compared the incidence of mass shootings in <b>Australia and New Zealand</b>. Data were standardised to a rate per 100,000 people, to control for differences in population size between the countries and mass shootings before and after 1996/1997 were compared between countries. <b>That study found that in the period 1980–1996, both countries experienced mass shootings.

The authors conclude that “the hypothesis that Australia’s prohibition of certain types of firearms explains the absence of mass shootings in that country since 1996 does not appear to be supported… if civilian access to certain types of firearms explained the occurrence of mass shootings in Australia (and conversely, if prohibiting such firearms explains the absence of mass shootings), then New Zealand (a country that still allows the ownership of such firearms) would have continued to experience mass shooting events.”<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-44">[44]</a></sup></p> <figure data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="261" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="261" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/cdc45e76a09651676eab1f058341110c/tumblr_inline_nynm84pBjF1sh8jq3_500.gif"/></figure><p>We see the same trend in The UK.</p> <figure data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="373" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="373" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/bf599e784e9963b91a4e4f245fed90f5/tumblr_inline_nynm9wKrKT1sh8jq3_540.png"/></figure><figure data-orig-width="458" data-orig-height="366" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="458" data-orig-height="366" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/279f61b9c596b97badd4bc465cc46b60/tumblr_inline_nynm9zWkxr1sh8jq3_540.png"/></figure><p>And Ireland and Jamaica…</p> <figure data-orig-width="453" data-orig-height="714" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="453" data-orig-height="714" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/4914c912d5690b40a382b90cf18c646f/tumblr_inline_nynmakqIup1sh8jq3_540.jpg"/></figure><p>And on and on and on…  Gun control simply does not create a safer society and often times actually has the opposite effect.</p> <p>At this point I should also probably point out that Australia’s gun laws have not even reduced gun ownership in Australia.  <a href="http://louderwithcrowder.com/australian-gun-ownership-rises-gun-crime-remains-low-america-still-at-fault/">In fact, gun ownership in Australia is actually higher now than in 1996.</a></p> <p>All of these inconvenient facts aside, we haven’t even touched on the cost of implementing Australian style gun control in America.</p> <p>I keep hearing people say that the US should adopt Australia’s gun control policy and I don’t think they have really thought about the big picture of that plan.</p> <p>Australia had far less guns per person and people in their country did not live in a society that was brought up respecting The 2nd Amendment.  The culture of Australia is very different than that of the culture of America when it comes to gun ownership and self defense.</p> <p>Because of this, <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_buyback_program#Australia">the Australian government was able to buy back 631,000 guns at the estimated price of about <b>$500,000,000.</b></a>  You read that correctly, <b>500 MILLION</b>.</p> <p><a href="http://cerebralzero.tumblr.com/tagged/australia">And even after all of that, it still did nothing to prevent violent crime and criminals in Australia still have access to illegal guns, </a>despite being an island country that isn’t bordered by other countries with high violent crime rates and rampant with illegal drug cartels.<br/></p> <p>There are over 360,000,000 legally owned firearms in America.  If we go by Australia’s numbers (<b>$792.39 per gun</b>), these guns would cost our government <b>$285,261,489,698.89</b> to buy back.  Almost <b>300 BILLION dollars</b>, assuming that every gun owner voluntarily turns in their guns…  Which is a very slim to nothing chance.</p> <p>Who’s going to pay for that?  Anti-gunners?  I think not.</p> <p>So, in closing, you want America to put in place gun legislation that will cost the country hundreds of billions of dollars <b>AND </b>has already been proven time and time again to be completely ineffective at protecting innocent lives or creating a safer society?</p> <p>Seems pretty silly.</p> <h2>Get dunked on, nerd.</h2> <figure data-orig-width="250" data-orig-height="188"><img data-orig-width="250" data-orig-height="188" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/36a75ffd7a3ce392092201d3769d443e/tumblr_inline_nynmeusS661sh8jq3_500.gif"/></figure></blockquote> <p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="281" data-orig-width="500" data-tumblr-attribution="eonline:S4A57ljapSvQXLPM7Jsomg:ZCTZKx1sDpydf"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/5b521c18948099c6594a510905c6dfe9/tumblr_nt8sq3NZGm1qlgbzbo1_500.gif" data-orig-height="281" data-orig-width="500"/></figure></p> </blockquote> <p>Teehee, Mac ‘n’ cheese</p> </blockquote> <p>Would make it clear that a gv’t buyback has never been on the table.

<p>This was supposed to be a light-hearted and fun joke post, but fine.  Let’s do this.<br/></p>
<h2><b>There is no valid logical rational reason why any normal US citizen 
should own a machine literally designed for no other purpose than to 
kill human beings.</b></h2>
<p>I own several guns and have shot literally thousands of rounds over the last couple of years, yet I haven’t killed or even harmed a single living creature.  Huh…  I guess my guns must be broken since they can’t even fulfill their “only purpose”.</p>
<h2>
<b>A disgustingly huge amount of people are DYING to these things every 
month, just trying to go about their normal lives.  That trumps your 
ill-chosen hobby.</b><br/></h2>
<p>Many anti-gun advocates will point out that there were 33,000 people killed by guns in 2013.  While this is a terrible number, we must also put this number into perspective against the grand scheme of things.  There are an estimated 340-370+ MILLION legally owned guns in 
America, not even including illegal black markets that we cannot 
effectively track.  This means that, even if we use conservative 
estimations, literally over 99.99% of the guns in America didn’t kill a 
single person in 2013.</p>
<p>When we look at the big picture, your chances of being harmed by a gun are actually very low.<br/></p>

<p><b>Death by gun, suicide excluded:</b><br/>0.0032%</p>
<p><b>Death by gun, suicide included:</b><br/>0.0095%</p>
<p><b>Death in a mass shooting alone:</b><br/>0.000032%</p>
<p><b>Injury by gun, no death:</b><br/>0.024%</p>
<p><b>Death of injury by gun including suicide:</b><br/>0.033%</p>
<p>Gun
 deaths and injuries etc based off general stats used by anti gun

 but are not even protected by the constitution and isn’t a right, and

<p>Many people will also cite mass shootings as a reason that guns are evil and should be banned, but this assertion also falls flat and looks ridiculous when put into perspective.  While these stories draw media attention and are absolutely horrible, 
you seem to have casually and conveniently left out the part where these
 attacks account for less than even one quarter of 1% of America’s 
overall murder rate.  About 0.2% to be more exact.</p>

<p>Quite
 simply put, guns save innocent lives.  And they do so far more often 
than they hurt them.  When guns are harming more innocent lives than 
they are protecting, it could be argued that it might make sense to 
further limit guns.</p>

<h2><b>There is no solution better than the one that several European countries

less-effective compromise so that you, again, can get off on owning a

<p>Sorry, but strict gun control has been an absolute failure in both Australia, The UK, and everywhere else it has tried.  It has done nothing to effectively reduce murder, violent crime, suicide, or even gun violence rates.  It has done nothing to achieve its desired goal of creating a safer society.  It is, and always will be, a complete failure.</p>
<p><b>Australia:</b></p>
<p><i>[this segment brought to you by <a href="http://lee-enfeel.tumblr.com">lee-enfeel</a>]</i><br/></p>
<p><a href="http://www.news.com.au/national/is-australia-staring-down-the-barrel-of-a-gun-crisis/story-fncynjr2-1226690018325">People die Australia as a result of firearms violence at almost the same rate they did prior to the firearms act</a>, and some sources state that more than a quarter million illicit firearms exist in Australia currently.</p>
<p>The <a href="http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/productsbytitle/9C85BD1298C075EACA2568A900139342?OpenDocument">total firearms death rate in 1995 </a>-
 the year before the massacre and the laws introduced - was 2.6 per 
100,000 people. The total firearms murder rate that year was 
0.3/100,000. From 1980-1995, Australian firearms deaths dropped from 
4.9/100,000-2.6/100,000 without the implementation of firearms laws. 
This is a rate of decline that has remained fairly constant; Looking at 
1996-2014, in which the rate has dropped from 2.6-0.86, it shows that 
the decline has been slower in a longer period of time since the law’s 
passing. Likewise, homicides declined more quickly in the 15 years prior
 to the firearms laws (0.8-0.3) than in the 18 years since it (0.3-0.1).
 This just indicates that firearms deaths haven’t been noticeably 
affected by the legislation you’ve claimed has done so much to decrease 
gun crime. <br/></p>
<p>It should also be noted that around the same time,
 New Zealand experienced a similar mass shooting, but did not change 
their existing firearms laws, which remain fairly lax; even moreso than 
some American states like California, New York, or Connecticut. Despite 
this, their firearms crime rate has declined fairly steadily as well, 
and they haven’t experienced a mass shooting since.</p>
<p>The <i>“australia banned guns and now they’re fine”</i>
 argument is really old and really poorly put together. Gun control is 
little more than a pink band-aid on the sucking chest wound that is 
America’s social and economic problems. It’s a ‘quick fix’ issue used by
 politicians to skirt around solving the roots of the violence problem 
in the United States, which are primarily poverty, lack of 
opportunities, and lack of education.</p>
<p>You could ban guns tomorrow nationwide and gun violence and overall violent crime would not be reduced at all.</p>
<p><i>[this segment brought to you by <a href="http://tmblr.co/m9F_132GzodNt-UaipnK67g">cerebralzero</a>]</i></p>
<p>In 2005 the head of the New South Wales Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research, Don Weatherburn,<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-37">[37]</a></sup>
 noted that the level of legal gun ownership in NSW increased in recent 
years, and that the 1996 legislation had had little to no effect on 
violence</p>
<p>In 2006, the lack of a measurable effect from the 1996 
firearms legislation was reported in the British Journal of Criminology.
 Using ARIMA analysis, Dr Jeanine Baker and Dr Samara McPhedran found no
 evidence for an impact of the laws on homicide.<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-40">[40]</a></sup></p>
<p>A study coauthored by Simon Chapman <b>found declines in firearm‐related 
deaths before the law reforms</b> accelerated after the reforms for total 
firearm deaths (p=0.04), firearm suicides (p=0.007) and firearm 
homicides (p=0.15), but not for the smallest category of unintentional 
firearm deaths, which increased.<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-43">[43]</a></sup></p>
<p>Subsequently, a study by McPhedran and Baker compared the incidence of 
mass shootings in <b>Australia and New Zealand</b>. Data were standardised to a
 rate per 100,000 people, to control for differences in population size 
between the countries and mass shootings before and after 1996/1997 were
 compared between countries. <b>That study found that in the period 
1980–1996, both countries experienced mass shootings. The rate did not 
differ significantly between countries. Since 1996-1997, neither country
 has experienced a mass shooting event despite the continued 
availability of semi-automatic longarms in New Zealand</b>. The authors 
conclude that “the hypothesis that Australia’s prohibition of certain 
types of firearms explains the absence of mass shootings in that country
 since 1996 does not appear to be supported… if civilian access to 
certain types of firearms explained the occurrence of mass shootings in 
Australia (and conversely, if prohibiting such firearms explains the 
absence of mass shootings), then New Zealand (a country that still 
allows the ownership of such firearms) would have continued to 
experience mass shooting events.”<sup><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Australia#cite_note-44">[44]</a></sup></p>

<p>At this point I should also probably point out that Australia’s gun laws have not even reduced gun ownership in Australia.  <a href="http://louderwithcrowder.com/australian-gun-ownership-rises-gun-crime-remains-low-america-still-at-fault/">In fact, gun ownership in Australia is actually higher now than in 1996.</a></p>
<p>All
 of these inconvenient facts aside, we haven’t even touched on the cost 
of implementing Australian style gun control in America.</p>
<p>I keep hearing people say that the US should adopt Australia’s gun 
control policy and I don’t think they have really thought about the big 
picture of that plan.</p>
<p>Australia had far less guns per person and 
people in their country did not live in a society that was brought up 
respecting The 2nd Amendment.  The culture of Australia is very 
different than that of the culture of America when it comes to gun 
ownership and self defense.</p>
<p>Because of this, <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_buyback_program#Australia">the Australian government was able to buy back 631,000 guns at the estimated price of about <b>$500,000,000.</b></a>  You read that correctly, <b>500 MILLION</b>.</p>
<p><a href="http://cerebralzero.tumblr.com/tagged/australia">And
 even after all of that, it still did nothing to prevent violent crime 
and criminals in Australia still have access to illegal guns, </a>despite
 being an island country that isn’t bordered by other countries with 
high violent crime rates and rampant with illegal drug cartels.<br/></p>
<p>There are over 360,000,000 legally owned firearms in America.  If we go by Australia’s numbers (<b>$792.39 per gun</b>), these guns would cost our government <b>$285,261,489,698.89</b> to buy back.  Almost <b>300 BILLION dollars</b>, assuming that every gun owner voluntarily turns in their guns…  Which is a very slim to nothing chance.</p>
<p>Who’s going to pay for that?  Anti-gunners?  I think not.</p>
<p>So, in closing, you want America to put in place gun legislation that will cost the country hundreds of billions of dollars <b>AND </b>has
 already been proven time and time again to be completely ineffective at
 protecting innocent lives or creating a safer society?</p>
<p>Seems pretty silly.</p>

<h2><b>Would make it clear that a gv’t buyback has never been on the table.</b></h2>
<p>Maybe not a mandatory federal one, no.  But government gun buybacks are most certainly a thing here in America.</p>
<h2><b>Also, cars are registered, which is reasonable.</b></h2>

<p>Does the year 1994 or the name Clinton ring a bell to anyone?  Anyone?</p>
<p>From
 1994 - 2004, there were strict national gun control laws in place in 
America.  They included most of the laws that are being proposed now.  
An “assault weapons” ban.  Magazine capacity limits.  All of that.</p>

<h2><b>Thorough background checks are reasonable.</b></h2>

<p>Furthermore, it’s a bit of pipe dream anyway considering that we have decades of evidence from all over the world that proves that gun control and even gun bans do not effectively reduce murder or violent crime rates.  They do not create safer societies.  Sure, it might look good on paper and feel good to think about, but reality just doesn’t align with those dreams.<br/></p>

<p>hey I’m glad for all the sources because this is changing my perspective but you gotta admit that at the very least requiring extensive background checks, mandatory waiting periods, and registering guns would help at least reduce gun violence a little bit and would help solve cases b/c registers guns</p>

<p>No, I do not have to admit that at all because all of these measures are in place in states like California, New York, and Washington DC, yet they have not made these societies any safer from murder, violent crime, or even gun violence.</p>

<p>Automatic weapons are extremely regulated for civilian ownership in America.  They cost tens of thousands of dollars on the low end all the way up to hundreds of thousands of dollars on the high end, they are registered with the federal government, the owner must apply for a special NFA license which requires a thorough background check that takes months or even years to get approved, paper work must be kept with the weapon at all time, the weapon cannot have been manufactured after 1986, they require a federal tax stamp to own which also can takes months to over a year to get processed, the owner must also designate a licensed gun dealer who will take possession of the weapon in the event of their death, and on and on and on…</p><p>If you truly believe that acquiring an automatic weapon in America is as easy as “picking up a prescription”, then you are simply ignorant to the subject of automatic weapons and just do not know what you are talking about.<br/></p><p><a href="https://www.atf.gov/qa-category/national-firearms-act-nfa">https://www.atf.gov/qa-category/national-firearms-act-nfa</a></p><p><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Firearms_Act">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Firearms_Act</a></p><p><a href="http://m.dailykos.com/story/2012/12/17/1171047/-There-are-240-000-fully-automatic-guns-in-the-US-and-only-2-deaths-in-80-years">http://m.dailykos.com/story/2012/12/17/1171047/-There-are-240-000-fully-automatic-guns-in-the-US-and-only-2-deaths-in-80-years</a><br/></p></blockquote>

 Jazzy Rowe, a black American student at UHartford, was a
 victim of multiple forms of poisoning by her racist
 roommate.
 The girl put molded substances into Jazzy's skincare and
 beauty products, put her toothbrush "where the sun don't
 shine", rubbed period blood on her belongings, among
 multiple other things.. then proceeded to brag about it on
 Instagram. Even posting videos of Jazzy eating food after
 poisoning it and captioning them saying "if only she knew"
 At a point in time, Jazzy had so much bad bacteria in her
 throat, she couldn't even speak. She could have died simply
 because of her skin tone.
 University of Hartford is trying to silence Jazzy and her
 story, but we can't let that happen.
 Too often colleges let severe hate crimes get swept under
 the rug but I hope Connecticut is better than that.
 She also has a video on her page where she goes into detail
 about everything that happened.
 PLEASE just repost and spread this news.

America, Children, and College: (((Dan Hodges))) O @DPJHodges In retrospect Sandy Hook marked the end of the US gun control debate.

I’ve been saying this for years but guys Sandy Hook.  Sandy Hook was the Nightmare Scenario. It was the “that’s not realistic.” If I’d been arguing with someone who was anti gun control and I said “someone could take a gun and go into a school and kill thirty kindergartners in just a couple of minutes, how would you feel then,” they would have said I was exaggerating, that’s manipulative and unrealistic.  but that’s what happened.  and the thing is if thirty dead, white, upper middle-class kindergartners in Connecticut aren’t going to motivate change on gun control then they’re never going to change for queer people in Florida, and they’re not going to change for music fans in sin city, and they’re not going to change for college students in Washington and Oregon, and they’re not going to change and they’re not going to change.  A white man can buy 19 automatic weapons and no one is going to raise an eyebrow.
