The other is a weapon of war, usually, with a 30-round magazine for which a pregnant woman, a 14-year old pastor's daughter or an 18-month old child, as was the case here, is no match. Realistically, even in the face of a person with a pistol and its six to 15 rounds, it is not a fair fight. Inside that church, right there, police discovered hundreds of spent shell casings and no fewer than 15 magazines for ammunition. Defining these weapons is simple.
The modern Republican Party hasn't been the country club martini of Nelson Rockefeller or the bomb-throwing of Barry Goldwater for nearly half a century. Instead, it delivered its version of what George Will called for in his 1984 book, Statecraft as Soulcraft: justice, social cohesion and national strength. Even the welfare state, reviled by conservatives at the time, served a purpose embodying the ethic that we will take care of our fellow people. The questions simply became how and how much.
The American National Election Studies, a project of Stanford and the University of Michigan, has asked voters each election year since 1964 how much government pays attention to what people think: the portion has fallen from nearly seven in 10 to just 53 percent, a bare majority. And then, along came Donald Trump. Like him, love him or hate him, Trump and his administration are entitled to chart their own course on policy issues; indeed, they have an obligation to their supporters to do so.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
