You attack me for hating the US, but it is for very valid reasons; the frequent mass shootings being just one of them. Innocent men, women and children are dying and instead you’re gaslighting me into thinking my anger isn’t called for. I don’t want to hear excuses on the other side. I want solutions, and ones which actually work. At this point I’m done hearing conservative talking points such as “good guys with guns” or “shall not be infringed.” The country has been kowtowing to extremist gun hoarders for way too long. If you’re more offended by my choice of wording than you are of mass murders, that’s on you, not me.
the Democrats are losing momentum in this country because they’re not strong enough. They think they can peacefully negotiate with a terrorist/extremist party and its equally violent voter base. And they’ve proven themselves to be weak in the face of Republican attacks. Even President Biden is being viewed unfavorably by gun control advocates because he isn’t doing shit.
But thanks almost entirely to staunch Republican opposition in Congress, Biden’s agenda to curb gun violence and reduce access to firearms has been mostly confined to a series of executive actions. Those actions can make a tangible difference, gun-control advocates argue, but aren’t as far reaching as measures that must pass through Congress before becoming law.Despite being the minority party on Capitol Hill, Republicans can still block most bills in Congress because of a Senate rule known as the filibuster, which requires 60 votes to break. Effectively, that means Democrats would need to win support from at least 10 Republican senators to pass gun-control legislation.
when the opposition has all the guns and the momentum, shouldn’t your side want guns too in order get them to respect you?
The NRA is a weaksauce gun ‘rights’ organisation, which is hated by just as many pro-gun people as anti-gun people.
You’d need to overturn Warren v. District of Columbia* and Town of Castle Rock v. Gonzales to force the police to have a legal obligation to protect people, and are open to both civil and criminal lawsuits should they fail to do so.
IIRC wouldn’t raising the voting age basically kill the democratic majority in nominally solid-blue voting districts?
That’s a lot of words just to say “yes, I support razing entire cities to ruble and the mass murder and rape of random civilians”
Our growth rate will resume. Your economy will have negative growth.
And I hate to say it lad, your country doesn’t have that much to offer on the world stage other than oil and some metals, so even counter sanctions or knockdown effects won’t have that much of an impact on broader markets.
I know how to properly evaluate the market data coming out of your rapidly closing economy.
Well for starters Democrats could go to the UN and ask for their help in going door to door confiscating guns from all those terrorists. If they’re so crazy about fighting government agents, then let them have it.
