President Biden on banning assault weapons and funding police in first of three visits to Pennsylvania

I haven't written about guns since 'Teenage Dream' and 'The Lost Class' — two PSAs about gun violence nominated for Outstanding Commercial at the 2022 Emmy Awards a month-and-a-half ago, but the topic is in the news again as CNBC reported in Pres. Biden announces 'Safer America Plan'.

CNBC's Kayla Tausche joins Shep Smith to report on President Biden's unveiling of his 'Safer America Plan, and his challenge to GOP lawmakers who claim to back police, but refuse to condemn the insurrection.
This was a big enough story that France 24 English also covered it in Biden zeroes in on Pennsylvania ahead of midterm elections.

US President Joe Biden will travel three times over the next week to Pennsylvania, including for a speech in Philadelphia Thursday on "the continued battle for the Soul of the Nation," the White House has said. Biden is zeroing in on the northeastern state, where he was born, ahead of midterm elections in November in which his Democratic party will fight to keep control of Congress.
I wish President Biden luck and skill in getting his agenda, whether it's banning assault weapons, funding the police, or keeping Democratic control of Congress. He'll need it.

That ends August's blogging. Stay tuned for the first post of September.
