Your right to own a gun is not more important than the life of a child

In the time since the latest mass shooting, the right-wing pundits and their zombie followers have gone into high gear to protect their precious guns. I want to be very clear here—the life of my child and the life of every child is worth more than your precious guns. I sent the text below after watching the evening news and understanding just how bad the shooting was. I never in my life thought I would have to tell my child that if he hears gunshots in his school to run if he can or hide if he cannot.

Watch out, NRA: There's new momentum in gun reform fight

Something is definitely different in the movement for stronger gun safety laws this time around. The impetus comes from the honest and heartfelt pain, anger, and eloquence of the teenagers of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 of their classmates and teachers were killed by an expelled student with an AR-15 in the Valentine’s Day mass shooting. Their televised speeches and media appearances criticizing the National Rifle Association and legislative inaction have gone viral worldwide. These students are unafraid to call out the NRA or state and federal lawmakers. As one Stoneman Douglas student, 17-year-old Cameron Kasky, said in an op-ed published on CNN: We can’t ignore the issues of gun control that this tragedy raises. And so, I’m asking—no, demanding—we take action now. Why? Because at the end of the day, the students at my school felt one shared experience—our politicians abandoned us by failing to keep guns out of school. But this time, my classmates and I are going to hold them to account. This time we are going to pressure them to take action. This time we are going to force them to spend more energy protecting human lives than unborn fetuses. There are right-wing conspiracies and smear jobs claiming that the students are being coached by adults, or that the entire Parkland shooting was a “false flag” fictional event, designed to take away people’s guns. In the most ridiculous assertion, some conspiracy nuts charge that the students aren’t students at all but are paid actors who “move from crisis to crisis.” Some threats are more serious: Kasky himself reported on Twitter that he was receiving death threats. At least media outlets are exposing the right-wing lies for what they are, and Google has removed some of the most outlandish conspiracy videos about the Parkland survivors from YouTube. While these student leaders are obviously students, many have speaking and academic experience that’s coming in handy. Student David Hogg, managing editor of the student TV station at Stoneman Douglas, described how students in debate classes and on the debate team researched and argued about gun control last fall, gathering information that serves them perfectly right now in their media interviews and talks with legislators. Disputing the “paid actor” conspiracy theory, Kasky, a veteran of high school theater, joked to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that «If you had seen me in our school's production of Fiddler on the Roof, you would know that nobody would pay me to act for anything.» When people remarked after her impassioned speech that student Emma González should run for president, she said she already was president—of the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance. In her AP Government class, she’s learned all about the influence of special interest groups in American politics, including the NRA—knowledge that served the students well in their successful fight to get companies to sever ties with the gun lobby. Those kids are good. So a group of telegenic and social media-savvy teenagers is moving the goal posts, just by being unafraid to speak the truth. As a result, there are other signs of movement in the fight for gun safety.

Aaron Boone: Lance Lynn, Alex Cobb “aren’t really in play” for Yankees

During their quest to acquire starting pitching in recent months, the Yankees have been connected to a litany of potential trade and free agent targets. The list includes right-handers Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb, who rank as two of the best free agents remaining in this year’s class. It doesn’t appear either will end up with the Yankees, though, if we’re to believe manager Aaron Boone.“At this point I don’t see those guys as realistic options,” Boone said Sunday (via Bryan Hoch of MLB.com). “It’s my understanding that those guys aren’t really in play for us.”With the Yankees poised to stay under the $197M luxury tax threshold and having anywhere from $10M to $15M left to spend, Lynn or Cobb would likely be a tight fit for the club’s budget (MLBTR predicted $14M per annum for Lynn and $12M a year for Cobb at the outset of the offseason). Although things haven’t gone according to plan for either pitcher since the market opened, they still seem likely to reel in contracts worth somewhere in the $10M to 15M-per-yea

Florida fans drop money on Auburn players, chant ‘FBI!’

Auburn may not have been one of the schools named in the latest bombshell report about the FBI’s investigation into college basketball, but opposing fans are not going to forget that the Tigers are still tied to the probe.Two Auburn players, sophomores Austin Wiley and Danjel Purifoy, have not played this season due to their involvement in the widespread recruiting scandal. Former Auburn assistant Chuck Person was accused of providing the families of Wiley and Purifoy money and taking thousands in illegal payments himself. During Florida’s upset win over No. 12-ranked Auburn on Saturday, Gators fans pulled out all the stops. Again, Auburn was not mentioned in the eye-opening documents that were released by Yahoo Sports last week. However, there are sure to be other teams who were not mentioned in that report who are involved in the FBI probe in some way.Leave it to SEC fans to take the initiative.
