A lot of Democratic candidates for president are going through the tapes from Tuesday night’s debate and posting video of their greatest hits, and for some reason, Elizabeth Warren thought her stand on gun control was worthy of reposting.
She certainly mentions a lot of things in her brief time allotment: gun registration, a “huge” tax on them (no surprise there), and letting people turn in their guns (i.e., mandatory buybacks and confiscation). She also wants to repeal the filibuster so that gun control can make it through the Senate. But where’s the corruption coming from? She ran out of time, but we’re sure it’s the influence of the NRA.
Why haven't we been able to pass any legislation to end the gun violence epidemic? Corruption, plain and simple. #DemDebate pic.twitter.com/uAiD3IlgC0

Or, maybe there hasn’t been any valid legislation proposed yet?

Or you know, constitutional rights and all that…

Mainly because you can't legislate people's behavior.

Because you can’t legislate what is broken in the heart of a person…..

What does corruption have to do with gang members shooting each other in Chicago?

Legislation = end of gun violence? You are laughable. How about end the hate that pulls the trigger or stabs the knife.

Because you can’t legislate everything.

You can not pass a bill stopping a hate filled person. That's why.
It's a waste of time. They don't follow laws.

Bc gun violence would be knife, bottle, vehicular, etc violence if every single gun was confiscated somehow (which would never happen as criminals don’t follow laws).

Same reason you have let it go on for years. You target the innocent law abiding citizens in an attempt to stop criminal activity. Thats the equivalent to needing a cardiologist but scheduling an appointment with a podiatrist.
It's stupid, just like liberal solutions.
— Frustrated American (@FrustratedAmer6) October 16, 2019
How about “lack of viable solutions?” Who has come forward with an actual plan that is supported by data & analysis? All I hear is empty rhetoric, or knee jerk solutions that are completely unsupported by available data.

It’s almost as if we’re overly focused on the “gun” part of gun violence instead of the “violence” part?
— TRK (@ripstardust) October 16, 2019
Gun violence, like violence in general, is awful. Violent crime has declined for two decades so perhaps epidemic doesn't apply. Regarding the violence problem that exists, more laws won't make much difference any more than laws against gravity will enable us to fly.

Gun violence is already illegal.

Its not corruption, but our enduring Constitution that is preserving our liberties from light and transient causes. The Constitution which was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions.
So I ask you: Do you mean to Govern or do you mean to be a master?

It's actually called #2A. But go ahead and pretend like you won't strip away that right from responsible Americans…#DemDebate

Constitution, plain and simple, grandma.

This is false and one of your more annoying claims.
— Henry Porter (@HenryPorters) October 16, 2019
Maybe because it’s not an epidemic.
— Dolf Townsend (@Dolf1021) October 16, 2019
Because there is NO epidemic!

Dems haven't produced any work in 3 years.. too much TDS going around

If elected, would President Warren go full Beto?
For some reason, Elizabeth Warren deleted her DNA test video but here's a copy just in case you wanted to see it again https://t.co/dUKo1wwmKD
