Dr. Sebastian Gorka follows TTAK, and apparently an “alarmingly high number” of Twitter knife-accounts

TTAK didn’t make the article or the screenshot, but he follows us too.

When I noticed that Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to President Trump and frequent surrogate on NPR and Fox News, followed us on Twitter, I thought “that’s kinda cool” since he follows only a modest 1648 accounts on his Twitter. (@SebGorka)

Observer.com seems to find the fact that 15 of those are knife companies or related to the industry somehow alarming. Less than 1 percent (0.00910) of his followed accounts? Oh my!

From DailyMailUK:

The terror suspect who was detained with a ‘rucksack full of knives’ near Parliament square had been tracked on an intricate web of CCTV cameras by police and MI5.

Armed police ‘swarmed like bees’ on the bearded man just before 2.30pm after his concerned family reportedly alerted security services.

Witnesses said the man, who was wearing a tracksuit and trainers, was crossing Whitehall amid the usual crowds of tourists and political staff when a police car suddenly pulled up and officers confronted him, just five weeks after the Westminster terror attack killed that five people.

Knife Rights

Knife Rights Action Alert: Michigan Switchblade-ban repeal passes Senate; Please contact House Judiciary Committee

While it was somewhat predictable that Governors Cuomo and McAullife would veto civil rights legislation in their respective states (New York here, Virginia here), this one could go either way. From what I gather, Governor Snyder has no issue with vetoing bills pertaining to peoples’ right to keep and bear arms, so it is unclear how he will view this one.

Therefore, it is critical that SB 245, which would lift Michigan’s ban on automatic knives has as much momentum as possible when it reaches his desk. If you live, work, or travel in the Great State of Michigan (Great except for the town of Ann Arbor, O-H!) please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee and ask them to advance the legislation.
