Hillary Attacks “Shameless Gun Worshipers” Who Are Against “Sensible” Control Legislation

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

Hillary Clinton has declared Republicans who are against gun control legislation to be “gun worshippers”, and ridiculed them for being “scared” that their rights are being taken away.

Appearing on her own former communications director’s podcast, Clinton declared “You know, democracy is the balancing of interests and rights, and unfortunately at this time, the gun worshipers have a huge advantage because of the filibuster and because of their shameless exploitation of people’s unwarranted fears.”

Hillary specifically singled out Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who last week labelled Democrats’ gun control efforts in the wake of shootings in Atlanta and Colorado as “ridiculous theater”.

Clinton proclaimed that “The opportunists on the other side, like Cruz and his ilk, they know better and they are in the position of trying to keep people really riled up and scared that sensible gun legislation like we had in the ‘90s for 10 years will somehow undermine their rights.”

“Well, what about the rights of all the rest of us? The rights of us to go to work, go shopping, go on dates to the movie theater, go to school, for heaven’s sake — what about the rest of us?” she continued.

After announcing he is considering executive action, Joe Biden told reporters on Sunday he believes Congress will pass “rational gun control” measures.

“The only gun control legislation that’s ever passed is mine. It’s going to happen again,” Biden Declared.

Foxconn Is Entering The EV Battery Market, Eying Solid State Batteries

Foxconn Is Entering The EV Battery Market, Eying Solid State Batteries

In news that is likely going to send shockwaves through the EV industry, Foxconn looks poised to be developing its own EV-use batteries. The giant electronic OEM is going to be developing both LFP (lithium iron phosphate) and solid-state batteries for use in electric vehicles, industry sources told Digitimes.

Foxconn and Hua-chuang Automotive Information Technical Center under Yulon Motor have established Foxtron Vehicle Technologies, the report says.

As most EV manufacturers, like Tesla, already know – battery packs can account for 50% of the total weight of an EV and 30% of its cost. Manufacturers are working on decreasing not only the cost of packs, but also the mass, which can lead to longer ranges per charge. 

Foxconn will reportedly introduce battery samples for EVs in 2021 and bring development to commercial use in 2024, the report notes.

Solid state batteries “will represent a $6 billion industry by 2030,” TechCruch recently wrote. Many of the recent promises in battery development – making them lighter, safer and more powerful, have “largely evaporated”, the report notes. Solid state batteries :lack a liquid electrolyte for moving electrons (electricity) between the battery’s positive (cathode) and negative (anode) electrodes”, making them less flammable and quicker to charge than li-ion batteries.

Colorado-based startup Prieto Battery told TC: “If you run the calculations, you can get really amazing numbers and they’re very exciting. It’s just that making it happen in practice is very difficult.”

So far, no large auto manufacturers have found success in developing solid-state batteries for EVs. If Foxconn can break through on solid state batteries, in addition to simply becoming an li-ion manufacturer, the shockwaves it sends through the industry could be profound.
