Elizabeth Warren Urges Democrats to Champion Gun Control, Shut Down Debate

Just as many in the Democratic Party are seeking to moderate their message in order to once again compete as a national political party, some high-profile Democrats are urging the party to lurch further left with an even firmer embrace of gun control.

On June 13, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) addressed those gathered at the “progressive” Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta, Ga. In her usual frenzied style, Warren used the forum to attack those Democrats who would moderate the party’s message, including those who would temper the party’s stance on guns.

Going further than most anti-gun activists and politicians, her command for Democrats to champion gun control included a call to shut down discussion on the topic. In doing so, Warren seemed to liken the issue of gun control to that of global warming, which many activists have long-attempted to put beyond the scope of legitimate debate.

During her wide-ranging diatribe, Warren stated,

It’s time for us to say: Democrats are on the side of science.

We’re done arguing about whether climate change is real – and we’re going to fight it with everything we have.

We’re done arguing about whether trickle-down economics works – and we’re going to fight to build this economy so it works for working families.

We’re done arguing about gun safety – and we’re going to fight for the common-sense reforms the overwhelming majority of Americans want.

1. The do-nothing GOP doesn't deserve to will, but they will in 2018 and 2020

simply because they have not gone insane like the Democrats have

6. They have to shut down debate or their thoughts and ideas get exposed.

You know a politician is lying when they say things like common sense reforms. That just means their way or no way there is no compromise in the mind of the left.

7. IMHO

whenever anyone posits "Common sense reforms", the response is one of three formats:

1: "I'm not gonna debate technical issues with a 'gunner', you just want to deflect from the killing"

2: Proposal that are either already current law or a variant thereof,

3: Radical confiscation and draconian punishment; any disagreement is met with "See, you clearly don't want to do anything about the problem!!!"
