    this is both insufficient to address gun violence in the U.S. but also way more than I thought was possible. If passed, this would the first gun control legislation to pass through Congress in 30 years! Pretty big accomplishment for the Biden administration who emphasized they would pursue bipartisanship when possible. I don’t think it’s a coincidence either that none of the 10 Republican senators who negotiated this deal are up for re-election this November.

    What would be on your wishlist to sufficiently address gun violence?

    1. Universal Background Checks
    2. Firearm Registry
    3. Federal Red Flag law
    4. Federal Mandatory Waiting Period

    A decade of these four laws being in place & enforced; & we would see a significant decrease in firearm related deaths.

    it’s not often I agree with Marco Rubio but he’s correct on this one. Suspending the gas tax is dumb.

    If Joe Biden is for something... the Republicans are against it... even if it's the most Republican idea ever

    Can’t wait for the inevitable blowback of chucking unlimited amounts of weapons into criminal infested Eastern Europe without accounting, what could possibly go wrong? It’s not like the Middle East ‘intervention’ was a valuable historical lesson.

    The alternative is the U.S. doesn’t provide Ukraine with military aid & Russia imposes a puppet leader to rule over the country while stretching their control further into Europe. Not exactly the better option.

    Wait…do you not believe that it is/was Russia’s goal to topple the Ukrainian government & install a puppet government?

    Never said that. Just teasing you on your Cold War scaremongering rhetoric as if that justifies the US meddling in sovereign nations halfway across the world. They’ve funnelled millions of dollars into Ukraine since the collapse of the USSR, but historical context doesn’t matter when it opposes your imperial worldview.

    Just to be very clear, you agree that:

    1) Russia invaded Ukraine with the intention of overthrowing their government & instituting a puppet government
    2) European + U.S. military aid has been key toward Ukraine being able to thwart off the Russian invasion

    Without 2, 1 happens certainly which is *bad.*

    Not as expansive a bill as needed but a good start!



    I think there’s a good chance the same-sex marriage bill passes the Senate! 47 House Republicans (who are generally more conservative than Senate Republicans) voted to codify same-sex marriage in federal law. A lot more than I expected tbh. I really hope this passes but I’ll hold my breathe until McConnell gives the green light. Just need 10 Republicans in the Senate to override a filibuster.
