U.S. Senate Republicans have introduced the Federal Firearms Licensee Protection Act of 2021, which would double the maximum penalties for firearm thefts from licensed gun dealers. Not explained was why thefts from gun dealers are somehow worse than thefts from everyone else. At least dealers can pass on their losses to consumers.
U.S. House Republicans are reportedly gearing up to impeach David Chipman in the event he is confirmed as ATF Director, a nomination that is by all accounts in deep trouble. But if Republicans can’t stop the confirmation in the Senate, there’s little chance that they can get a successful impeachment in the House.

More than a dozen CEOs of major health systems reportedly sent a letter to Congressional leaders Wednesday calling for support of President Biden’s proposal to fund $5 billion in hospital and community-based gun violence intervention programs. But make no mistake; what they want is to ban guns and armed citizens. However, what’s really driving the medicos’ push is money: they want government funding for their programs.

We also note that doctors reportedly kill hundreds of thousands of Americans annually.
Outgoing Rochester, New York, Mayor Lovely Warren (D) was arraigned on weapons charges this week. Warren and her husband are charged with criminal possession of a firearm, which is a Class E felony. They also face two counts of failure to lock/secure firearms in a dwelling and with child endangerment. Warren reportedly is a member of Michael Bloomberg’s Illegal Mayors Against Guns group.
President Biden says it again: ban all guns.
