Action 3:

Stay sane:

Three years of Trump and his cronies are exhausting and demoralizing. Despite all the great advocacy from TAN readers, Trump is still president and may survive a sham impeachment trial in the Senate. Here are tips for staying sane in these difficult political times:

Action 1:

Support common sense gun safety:

Seventy per cent of Virginia voters support stronger gun safety measures and the General Assembly is moving quickly to strengthen Virginia’s laws. Here is an update on the status of various gun safety proposals in the state legislature:

Va. Senate committee strikes 'assault weapons' bill, advances other proposed gun laws


It is no surprise, though, that there is a backlash against these proposals, requiring Governor Northam to declare a state of emergency before an estimated 30,000 show up to protest on Monday. The governor says he is responding to threats on the “dark web”.

As The New York Times reported in this chilling article on Friday, the FBI arrested three white supremicists whom they believe were headed to Richmond with malign intent. According to the Times, “Various extremist organizations or their adherents are calling Monday’s rally the “boogaloo.” In the lexicon of white supremacists, that is an event that will accelerate the race war they have anticipated for decades.” According to the Times this event is attracting some of the same white supremicist, neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic groups who came to Charlottesville in 2017, which indicates that the event is about much more than the modest gun safety proposals.
