Biden Signs $13B Gun Control Law, Vows ‘Much More Work to Do’



President Joe Biden on Saturday signed into law the first major federal gun reform in three decades, days after a decision he condemned by the Supreme Court expanding firearm owners’ rights.

“God willing, it’s going to save a lot of lives,” Biden said at the White House after signing the bill with his wife Jill by his side.

The bipartisan bill came together just weeks after mass shootings in Uvalde and Buffalo that killed more than 30 people, including 19 children at an elementary school.





Putin Ally Announces First City Russia Will Strike if World War 3 Starts



Alawmaker in Russia has become the latest guest on Kremlin-backed television to warn of a missile strike on a European capital, naming the city that he believes should be Moscow’s first target should World War Three break out.

Andrey Gurulyov, a former deputy commander of Russia’s southern military district, made the comment during a discussion about Lithuania’s blockade of the neighboring Russian exclave of Kaliningrad.

Moscow has threatened to retaliate after Vilnius enforced sanctions of embargoed goods transiting and entering the Russian Baltic Sea territory.






Russia’s air force is struggling to support Vladimir Putin‘s invasion of Ukraine because of combat losses, the U.K. Ministry of Defence said Friday.

In its daily intelligence update, the ministry said Russia is being forced to deploy retired pilots to operate warplanes because of high casualty numbers. Russia has moved to using retired personnel who are now working as contractors for Wagner, a Russian private military company, to conduct close air support missions, the ministry said.






TOKYO—Japan’s annual core consumer inflation topped the central bank’s target for a second straight month in May, data showed on Friday, highlighting the intensifying pressure on the country’s fragile economy from soaring global raw material costs.

The data challenges the Bank of Japan’s (BOJ) view that the recent rise in prices is temporary, and does not warrant withdrawing monetary stimulus.






The overturning of the landmark 1973 “Roe v Wade” decision gives all 50 states the freedom to ban abortion, with nearly half expected to do so in some form.

Several US companies said they would help their employees if they had to travel out of state for abortion services after the US Supreme Court overturned “Roe v. Wade” that recognised a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion.

China’s military said on Saturday that the recent fly through of a US maritime plane through the Taiwan Strait deliberately disrupted the regional situation and endangered peace and stability.

Colonel Shi Yi, spokesman for the Eastern Theater Command of the People’s Liberation Army, said in a statement that the military had organised air and ground forces to monitor the US aircraft’s operation, which had taken place on Friday.

A recent report released by the National Association of Scholars (NAS) surprisingly reported that of the 118 Confucius Institutes (CIs) opened at U.S. universities over the past few years, at least 104 have closed their doors.

However, the report warns, at least 38 universities have reportedly replaced the programs run at the CIs with identical activities, but under a different name.

This would have allowed the universities to continue their relations with the Chinese communist regime that promoted these Institutes, but disassociating themselves from the CIs themselves, which in recent times have been the subject of much controversy and criticism.
