    Last month, I blogged about Republican Vermont governor Phil Scott's complete change in stance on the Second Amendment.  At that time, he had signed a "raft of gun control measures" and explained that his thinking about Americans' right to bear arms had "changed completely" after the Parkland shooting. Last week, he signed a brand new "raft" of gun control measures, and in doing so, has provoked the ire of the NRA.

    The National Rifle Association and the White House are in full on crisis PR mode, assuring the public that Trump is not interested in gun control, but instead, is committed to supporting second amendment protections. Wednesday, Trump met with legislators from both parties to begin discussion on what he hopes will kickstart the creation of a bipartisan, comprehensive bill addressing school shootings.

    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel just admitted on Jake Tapper State of the Union that he knew of reports Deputy didn't enter school at time of CNN town hall forum in which he mocked and berated the NRA and Dana Loesch. Israel said he didn't mention it during the forum because he was waiting for investigators to confirm the reports. Here is the specific exchange:

    One of the most astounding aspects of the politics after the Parkland school shooting is how quickly a small group of student leaders and a large number of leftist groups backing them focused on the NRA. The CNN three-ring circus event in which thousands of people jeered and shouted at Dana Loesch was one of the low points in an already low political theater. Meanwhile, the facts have come out proving that this shooting could have been and should have been prevented without a single change in the gun laws.

    Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock used a bump stock attachment when he murdered 58 people. Following the massacre, lawmakers of all political stripes, gun control groups, and even gun rights groups like the NRA agreed the bump stock, which enables rapid fire shooting on some semi-automatic rifles, was not fit for public use. “Fully automatic weapons have been outlawed for many, many years. This seems to be a way of going around that, so obviously we need to look how we can tighten up the compliance with this law so that fully automatic weapons are banned," said Speaker Ryan at the time.

    Radio host, TV host, and NRA spokeswoman has had quite a week. Journalists caused outrage after they claimed she said she wanted to fist The New York Times (she actually said fisk). Huffington Post's Yashar Ali penned a great and gracious apology on Twitter to Dana for his mistake. Now others have gone after Loesch for her explanation of the death of Philando Castile, including Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY).

    Over the weekend, radio host, TV host, and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch faced immense backlash over an NRA ad that she taped months ago. Journalists claimed that she said fist, which has a sexual connotation for some, instead of fisk The New York Times for lies and misinformation. Loesch appeared on "The Story" on Fox News to discuss the abuse she faced and couldn't understand why everyone would get so upset over her wanting to fact check The Times.

    TV host, radio host, and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch has once again felt the wrath of leftists over an NRA video thanks to a few scumbag journalists who purposely twisted her words. In the video, released back in April, Loesch calls out The New York Times for the publication's lies and fake news. Pathetic leftist journalists freaked out over ONE word in the almost four minute video. They insisted she said that "we're going to fist the New York Times" instead of FISK. Claiming that Dana used a sexual term led to a lot of Twitter users threatening her with sexual violence.
