Unfortunately, without 60 votes in the Senate, it would get filibustered by Schumer. One quick way around that is to nuke the legislative filibuster, which Turtleman doesn't seem inclined to do. So in reality we should be contacting our based Turtleman and get him to go nuclear. But nuking the filibuster is pointless because anything that gets passed can get repealed when the power balance changes. If you nuked the filibuster to pass this, then when the Democrats get control of Congress and the White House again, they only need 50 votes to repeal it and they can also pass whatever they want with a simple majority. That includes socialized health care, gun control, etc.
But, beyond Cocaine Mitch, I'm not sure Flake and some of the other cucks in the Senate would be willing to vote for the rule change unfortunately. It would still need a majority vote to get rid of the filibuster rule, and there is currently only a 51 seat majority now.
The other way it could be done is to attach it to some kind of must-pass legislation. I'm not sure how feasible that is though.
Our final hope is that Justice Kavenaugh rules that every state needs to allow shall-issue CCW due to the 2nd Amendment.
Between 2012 and 2017, she submitted more than 180 fraudulent I-589 Forms where she knowingly made false statements about the applicants’ criminal histories, personal narratives of alleged persecution, and/or locations.

A significant proportion of suicidal teens treated in a psychiatric emergency department said that watching the Netflix series "13 Reasons Why" had increased their suicide risk, a University of Michigan study finds.
The hit drama, widely popular among teens, has generated controversy for its depiction of suicide. Its story centers around a 17-year-old student, who, before her death, recorded cassettes that detail 13 reasons why she took her own life.
The Trump administration has paid informants embedded within a caravan of Central American migrants who are leaking information about the group's movements and other details to Homeland Security officials, according to a report published Tuesday afternoon.
An NBC report did not specify how many informants the department had inside the moving group, whether they were migrants or U.S. officials, and how much they are being compensated. U.S. officials on Monday estimated that up to 10,500 people were traveling to the U.S. in a handful of different cararvans.
An alleged voter fraud scheme in which Skid Row’s homeless were being offered money and cigarettes in exchange for “false and forged signatures” on ballot petitions and registration documents has been uncovered in Los Angeles, prosecutors announced Tuesday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell obviously wanted congresswoman Martha McSally of Arizona to join his conference with a midterm win over Krysten Sinema. No such luck, Mitch. But now, amid reports that John Kyl (appointed in early September to the late John McCain’s seat) may hang it up very soon (he only promised to serve until the end of 2018), McConnell is lobbying Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, who would again deal with an opening for that seat, to give McSally a ticket to the upper chamber...
In a highly-anticipated letter that went public Monday, the Democrats called Pelosi “a historic figure.“
But, they added, “Our majority came on the backs of candidates who said that they would support new leadership because voters in hard-won districts, and across the country, want to see real change in Washington. We promised to change the status quo, and we intend to deliver on that promise.“
Border Patrol agents conducted record checks, which revealed that 34-year-old, Antonio Villasenor Nunez, had a previous criminal record. In 2005, Villasenor was convicted for sexual battery and was sentenced to 60 days in prison. In 2007, Villasenor was convicted of vehicle theft and sentenced to six months in prison. In 2009, Villasenor was convicted of false identification to peace officers and was sentenced to 20 days in prison. In 2012, Villasenor was convicted of robbery and was sentenced to two years in prison.
Villasenor is a member of the Paisa prison gang, and will be held pending criminal prosecution for his illegal entry into the United States.
Watch the soy-reporter narrate that “many of these people are ‘not in my back yard’ types and outright Mexican Nationalists.” As if wanting what’s best for your nation is a bad thing. Vice is absolute anarchist trash.
CDC is advising that U.S. consumers not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any, until we learn more about the outbreak. This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available.
Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick...
.@NPR, you are disgraceful. Your chosen "experts" are both former CIA analysts, one for the military industrial think tank CSIS, the other for the military industrial think tank Brookings Institution. Like the NYT story a week ago, this is deception. Shame on you. #Malpracticehttps://t.co/IASYUcealf
It's almost comical how these stories designed to undermine North Korea diplomacy are *always* sourced to @CSIS, a think-tank overflowing with defense contractor $$$ which opposed the negotiations from the outset. Lazy, craven journalistic malfeasance of the absolute worst sort pic.twitter.com/T9fFzIcHY3
Fundamentally, neither bishops nor laity have any power in the government of their church. That's leading to some huge problems as Francis works against resolving the priest abuse crisis.
Pope Francis administered a stunning and humiliating shock to the bishops of the Catholic Church in the United States last week. The American bishops had gathered in Baltimore to discuss a pair of measures to deal with the continuing crisis over clerical sexual abuses in this country.
The night before the conference, the pope abruptly quashed both measures. The bishops were left reeling, and lay Catholics were stunned and dismayed. For some, it may even be the last straw: If their church will not deal honestly with these issues, they will leave it.
Almost every element is produced in stars but stellar winds from red giants and planetary nebulae are the main source of carbon and nitrogen, and some other elements. This chart shows our best estimates of the proportions of each element produced by a number of processes.
Also note for you science geeks, this research is about the molecule silica (SiO2), not the element silicon (Si). Silica is also called silicon dioxide, which is less prone to confusion like "silica" and "silicon" are.
The insects have been building onto these same mounds for some 4,000 years, so construction began not long after humans built the Pyramids of Giza (We know the Pyramids of Giza are much older than that, but let's play along with them).
