MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting on WHIPA Vote

“This bill will save lives. For that alone, it is worth celebrating. For once, Congress is offering more than ‘thoughts and prayers.’ Let’s be clear: This is the most meaningful action on gun violence that has been enacted by Congress in two decades. This bill is a significant step forward. But it also is just the beginning of what our nation needs to seriously address the tragic gun violence crisis. 

“As we saw with the ruling by the Supreme Court yesterday, the most extreme elements of the Republican Party want to continue to flood our streets, our schools, our grocery stores, and our places of worship with more guns and fewer protections. It is outrageous, shameful, and dangerous. And it shows we still have our work cut out for us. 

“Millions of MoveOn members have signed petitions, made calls, rallied in the streets, and have made their voices heard for years in support of gun safety measures. They will continue to press for an assault-weapons ban and an expanded Supreme Court that will restore balance, break the right-wing stranglehold, and ensure states have the power to help keep their residents safe. We will continue to mobilize our members to support candidates who prioritize the health and well-being of Americans over the gun lobby and extremist Republicans.”

‘Donald Trump should be allowed to take whatever national security documents he wants to and scatter them around his for-profit golf resort’ is not what we thought the next civil war would be about, but Republicans are quite animated about it. Yet again.

The first-ever FBI search warrant served against a former U.S. president is still the big news in the country, but we still don’t know much more about it than we did yesterday. Donald Trump took “classified national security documents” from the White House when he left; when those documents were discovered at Mar-a-Lago in early June, Trump seems to have refused to relinquish them, relying on his apparent political power to skirt consequences. Didn’t work out for him.

Today’s news, then, is an absolute boatload of seditionists, aspiring fascists, and Republican lawmakers insisting that this attempt to enforce laws that Donald Trump definitely broke is the precursor to civil war, the sign of a collapsing republic, or evidence of shocking, absolutely shocking (checks notes) politics inside the Department of Justice. Few are willing to declare that Trump didn’t do a crime; Republicans are—as they were before, during, and after two Trump impeachments—instead shouting that consequences for Republican crime-doing are completely unacceptable. It’s … not a movement with a lot of principles.
