After Texas Shooting, Governor Wolf Urges Lawmakers to Stop Delay of Gun Safety Measures

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter After Texas Shooting, Governor Wolf Urges Lawmakers to Stop Delay of Gun Safety Measures National Issues,  Press Release,  Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – “It has been more than three months since the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, yet state lawmakers have failed to pass any gun safety measures to my desk. Now, after another massacre has taken the lives of innocent kids, we must act.“In the coming weeks, I look forward to working with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to enact targeted measures to improve school safety. Our School Safety Task Force is nearing completion of its regional meetings and there is broad agreement on strengthening Pennsylvania’s Safe Schools initiative and providing better tools for law enforcement, schools, students, and parents to prevent violence. But this is no substitute from real action to protect all our constituents from dangerous individuals having access to firearms. We are failing them if we cannot protect them.“Senate Bill 501, which would keep guns from domestic abusers, has not been called for a vote in the House despite passing the Senate exactly two months ago today. Over and over again, we see a nexus between domestic abuse and access to firearms being a recipe for mass violence. This bill has broad support from victim, law enforcement, and gun safety advocates. Yet, despite public and private requests by my administration, this bill continues to be held up. House Republican leaders need to free this bill from committee and bring it to the House floor this week.“Over and over again, deadly mass shootings are committed with high-powered long guns. Yet, in Pennsylvania, these guns, including weapons of war like an AR-15, can be purchased in a private sale without requiring a background check by the Pennsylvania State Police. I continue to urge the House and Senate to close this loophole to reduce the likelihood of a known dangerous individual from getting access to these potentially deadly weapons.“I urge the House and Senate to expedite action on these bipartisan, commonsense proposals.”center_img May 21, 2018last_img read more

Mane set to dump Liverpool

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Sadio Mane is reportedly seeking a move away from Liverpool after being left fuming with Jurgen Klopp for backing Virgil van Dijk to win the Ballon d’Or award back in December.The Senegal international has proved a bargain for Klopp since completing a £34 million switch from Southampton in 2016, scoring 77 goals in 161 appearances for the Reds and playing a crucial role in their Champions League success last term. He has also helped them build up a 25-point lead at the top of the Premier League table this season.But according to France Football, Mane is looking to leave Liverpool amid frustration with Klopp over his public backing of team-mate Van Dijk in the Ballon d’Or running.Despite sharing last season’s Premier League Golden Boot with fellow Reds attacker Mohamed Salah and Arsenal ace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the 28-year-old finished fourth in the voting.Van Dijk – who was crowned FIFA Men’s Player of the Year, UEFA Men’s Player of the Year and PFA Player of the Year for his 2018/19 efforts – was the bookies’ favourite to add the Ballon d’Or to his collection.In the end the Dutchman was beaten to the prize by Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, but Klopp insisted his star defender deserved to win it. “Last season I cannot remember a more impressive season from a defender ever. Honestly,” he said.“So it would have been right if Virg won it.” Mane is said to have been left with a “bitter taste” over Klopp’s comments, meaning he is now open to departing Liverpool when the summer transfer window opens.Real Madrid have been linked with a move for the winger, who is under contract at Anfield until 2023.Senegal teammate Keita Balde recently hinted that Mane could leave Liverpool in the near future.Blade said: “I don’t think Sadio Mane wants to stay there his whole life.” It is believed Madrid would need to fork out around £130m to prise Mane away from Liverpool, which would make him the second most expensive player in football history.Tags: Jurgen KloppLiverpoolSadio ManesenegalTransferslast_img read more
