Gun company shows support for the Second Amendment: No more guns for Liam Neeson!

Published

on

A North Carolina gun manufacturer has called on the firearm industry to boycott actor Liam Neeson over the Taken 3 star’s controversial comments about guns.

In a Facebook post, PARA USA said the company now regretted providing firearms to be used in the Taken 3 film.

“While the film itself is entertaining, comments made by its Irish-born star during press junkets reflect a cultural and factual ignorance that undermines support of the Second Amendment and American liberties,” the company said.

“We will no longer provide firearms for use in films starring Liam Neeson and ask that our friends and partners in Hollywood refrain from associating our brand and products with his projects. Further, we encourage our partners and friends in the firearms industry to do the same.”

During a recent interview with the English-language Dubai newspaper Gulf News, Neeson said people in the United States had too many guns.

“There’s too many f—ing guns out there. Especially in America,” he remarked. “I think the population is like, 320 million? There’s over 300 million guns. Privately owned, in America. I think it’s a f—ing disgrace. Every week now we’re picking up a newspaper and seeing, ‘Yet another few kids have been killed in schools.’”

"Like so many contentions of the president’s defenders, this is malarkey thinly draped with plausible-sounding distortions of facts, rules, court opinions, and the Constitution itself."

Trump has been mysteriously ignoring Melania’s initiatives in his major speeches: report

Published

on

According to a report on Politico, an analysis of Donald Trump's State of the Union addresses shows that the president has neglected to boost his wife's most notable achievement in her three years as first lady -- apparently at the urging of aides who feel it is best not to bring it up.

Traditionally, first ladies take on a cause after settling in and Melania Trump has been no different, launching her "Be Best" campaign aimed at halting online bullying. However, that campaign has been ignored by the president in all of his major speeches where he has touted his administration's accomplishments.

On Tuesday, CNN's Haley Byrd reported that President Donald Trump is not inviting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to the signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the president's signature trade agreement that updates and modernizes the earlier NAFTA deal.

Major Democratic committee chairs who were instrumental in shaping the final resolution, including Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) were reportedly also not invited to the signing.

Democratic votes were critical to the ultimate passage of USMCA, and also played a role in influencing the final, bipartisan details of the agreement.
