Nesaranews Mission Statement

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation?
Answer -- The primary goal of Nesaranews is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.

TX AG: ‘I would rather arm law-abiding citizens’ than Pass Gun Control Laws

It would be more practical to arm law-abiding citizens than pass additional gun control laws, Texas’ attorney general said Monday.
Speaking to Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade regarding the devastating massacre of dozens of parishioners inside a Baptist church in Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton rejected the left’s natural inclination to demonize firearms in the wake of the tragedy.

“There are laws against murder, and this guy violated the laws against murder,” Paxton stated. “So adding some other gun law would not, I don’t think, in any way change this guy’s behavior.”
On Sunday 26-year-old Devin Kelley opened fire on a First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, just southeast of San Antonio, leaving 26 dead and 20 injured.

Kelley had been court martialed in 2012 for abusing his wife and child, and was dishonorably discharged in 2014, which should have stopped him from being able to purchase firearms under current laws.
“It’s not clear to me that he wasn’t already prevented from having a gun, given his history in the military,” Paxton told Kilmeade, adding that an armed citizen had confronted the shooter and was likely responsible for preventing further carnage.

“What ultimately may have saved some lives is two people that were outside the church that actually had guns that may have slowed this guy down and actually pursued him,” noted Paxton.

The attorney general also asserted an armed citizenry would have a better effect on deterring criminals.

He added: “I would rather arm law-abiding citizens and make sure that they can prevent this from happening as opposed to trying to pass laws that would prevent law-abiding citizens from having guns.”

In an interview with Fox on Sunday, Paxton also defended gun rights as vital to preventing further bloodshed:

“As far as what we can do in the future, I mean, the only thing I know – because you can’t necessarily keep guns out of the hands of people who are going to violate the law – all I can say is that in Texas at least we have the opportunity to have concealed carry. And so if it’s a place where somebody has the ability to carry, there’s always the opportunity that gunman will be taken out before he has the opportunity to kill very many people.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott in May passed a bill reducing the cost of a concealed carry license from $140 to $40, while also cutting down license renewal fees.
