Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced a ban on the sale, use, and import of about 1,500 kinds of “assault-style” firearms, effective immediately on May 1st. The announcement comes less than two weeks after the Nova Scotia gun massacre, an incident Trudeau called “the deadliest rampage in our country’s history.”
August 3rd, 2019 El Paso Texas: 22 dead, 24 injured. August 31st, 2019 Odessa Texas: 7 dead, 21 injured. What do these two incidents have in common? These senseless acts involved assault-style weapons. Both shooters were Texans, both were young Caucasian men.

Twenty people died yesterday following a mass shoot out at a Texas mall. Twenty-six others were injured, among them, two children aged two and nine years old. The mall was very busy because schools are about to open and many parents were shopping for their children.
When the shooting broke out around 10 a.m. local time, between 1,000 and 3,000 customers and 100 employees were present in the mall. Surveillance cameras recorded the shooter.
The Pop Star Madonna has called out to God to help and correct the abuse of firearms in America. Once again over the past few days there have been new incidents of killings. Three people dead and 15 people injured at the Garlic festival shooting in Northern California on July 29.

President Trump’s decision to cancel the Nuclear Peace Treaty between America and Russia is a great stumbling block in the goal of uniting the whole world with democracy. However the decision to cancel the peace treaty may be temporarily a good decision because the peace treaty was made in 1986 before the downfall of the communist regime. Today the alliance of America and Russia as two free world countries is most important to World Unity and Peace. They can make a much better treaty to replace the old one.
Democratic presidential candidate, and four-term Congressman, Eric Swalwell (D-CA), announced the end of his brief campaign on Monday. The 38 year-old, who called on former Vice President Joe Biden to “pass the torch” during his lone debate performance, never came close to grabbing it, or any traction in the race. Swalwell becomes the first Democratic candidate— “major” or otherwise— to drop out. There are several others, polling at 1% or less, who should probably stop wasting their time and follow suit.
Madonna came out with a new video striking out against gun violence and in support for gun control.
Gun control is a controversial topic in American society. The Second Amendment of the American Constitution reads: A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
