Come on, you knew she was going to come up with one, right? 

Courtesy of CNN:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has unveiled a comprehensive plan to reduce gun violence by enacting a suite of new restrictions on buyers, cracking down on sellers and breaking “the (National Rifle Association’s) stranglehold on Congress” with anti-corruption legislation.

The proposal arrives as more than 15 Democratic primary candidates prepare to take turns speaking at a gun safety forum in Des Moines, Iowa, and a week after the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

“The next President has a moral obligation to use whatever executive authority she has to address the gun crisis,” Warren writes in a Medium post. “But it is obvious that executive action is not enough. Durable reform requires legislation — but right now legislation is impossible. Why? A virulent mix of corruption and abuse of power.”

Warren previously described gun violence in America as “a national health emergency” and has, on the campaign trail, called questions about how to keep children safe from school shooters among the most troubling she’s faced as a candidate. On Saturday, she pledged again to end the Senate filibuster, which she describes in her new post as weapon used by “extremists in the Senate to thwart the will of the people.”

The new plan is among Warren’s broadest to date, calling for universal background checks, the passage of a federal ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and the closure of loopholes often targeted by gun control activists.

I used to say that President Obama was often the smartest person in the room.

I long for that confidence in my president again. 

And with Elizabeth Warren you know for a fact that she would probably be the smartest person in virtually any room she could enter. 

In my mind, that is no small thing.

    There is a conversation that Trump is trying to prevent the country from having about mass shootings, and specifically, his role in inspiring and legitimizing mass violence as an option. Trump doesn’t want the nation to talk about gun violence, so he hopped aboard the rightwing conspiracy that the Clintons killed Jeffrey Epstein.

    It has been nearly four years, and Donald Trump is still trying to politically survive by hiding behind the Clintons.

    Ignore the tweets and focus on Trump’s failures as a president and as a $hitgibbon.

    Demand Congress to pass background checks if YOU value life. BTW:

    I initially supported Kamala Harris, but based on what I’ve read so far, I have switched to Elizabeth Warren. I agree with Gryphen that Warren might possibly be the smartest person in a room. In addition, she is also the most prepared and the most consistent. I never supported Biden, but with his latest gaffes, he has shown that he is not mentally capable of being president. It appears that Biden might be suffering from early stages of alzheimer. I hope he withdraws from the race, but he probably doesn’t recognize that he has some form of dementia. Maybe his family will do an intervention and force him out. (Nevertheless, even Biden with full-blown dementia is better than Donnie Dotard any day.)

      Bill Maher was equal opportunity. Elizabeth has a plan for this, for that, funny.
      First night back, he reminded me of Oprah that talked over her guests, so angry.
      Would you just shut UP and let them answer the question??

      That being said, struck a nerve with the vacationing lard.
      He happened across it “by accident.” Tweet. LMAO

    She is going to start a buyback program. One bow and arrow set, or a tomahawk, in exchange for a firearm.

    Credit card company in Canada forgave all credit debt. What’s up with that? They need to do that with student debt. Improve credit.

    Conservative commentator S E Cupp has quit the NRA. I guess these last shootings were the final straw and she couldn’t take it anymore.
