Pro-Gun Dem Candidate Supports Medicare for All
Like it or not but in large parts of the country a gun control candidate will never ever ever ever win
That’s what any reasonable person would also think about OTHERS; their health is more important than YOUR gun.
“Looked at”? How about abolished? Recall “that all men are created equal”until it comes to representation and voting, the pinnacles of democracy.
Egotistical, paranoid assholes. That’s who.
AR 15s? I don’t think so. Armour piercing, laser guided, hollow point high velocity multi shot semi automatics? NO. You are wrong.
You are crazy. If we voted RESPONSIBLY there would be no reason to take up arms against OURSELVES.
Do you expect Guatemala or Canada to invade?
Glad to know she’s going to fail.
Glad to know what the best brand of wienies is.
INFO MUTT as someone who lives in Indiana, you couldn’t be more wrong
she’s so cute
Srs? She’s 43.
Arm the poor for proletarian war
moestietabarnak btw , according to your simplified definition : most ceos and bankers are workers to …. an engineer can make up to 15 times what a factory worker makes , is it justified?
Arm the Center.
BTW, I’m an engineer, and I want the lowest worker to make at least a living wages, it is good for the economy. The minimum wages worker don’t buy my products… yet.
And I think CEO and banker making MILLIONS don’t earn it by hard work, but by tricks and scam and ‘old boy’s club’
lol yeah an engineer !!! hard to believe judging by your laughable simplification of communism .. what do you mean by lowest worker ? how would you manage to GIVE high paying job jobs to POCs ? would you still have a job if we went to a more communist path ( more than 100 millions deaths already )
We have to amend Godwins’ Law and “Communism!!!” /sigh
NO one talked about communism in this thread. You lose.
I’m working with POC here in Canada, they make as much money as me … for similar experiences/training. An egyptian in front of me, an indian to my left, a Syrian next to her, a venezualian behind her, French on the other side, I think there must be 20 nationality on my floor alone. We embrace immigration. We are not Xenophobe.
As for jobs, they at least make 11$/hours in minimum wages. not perfect but still way better than in the USA.
POC ( spelling “People of Color” for a racist, because someone who think that the ‘white’ worker that pay for POC well-fare’ IS a racist Plain and simple.)
Worker (white or POC) were making good pay before Reganomics (voodoo) and union busting CON started to attack worker by undermining unions, pushing corporation to outsource in other country to exploit worker etc.
the NEW deal was a good example, and it was working, but the Wealthy have been dismantling it for the last 40 years.
People were able to raise a family in a house, with a car and vacation every year.. now a huge number have 2 or more job just to cover the basics
Let’s just give everyone full auto, military grade weapons. What could go wrong? I’ll be a couple sane countries over. Good luck with the Hunger Games.
The Lehr und Wehr Verein, Bill Anderson.
Either you have armed citizens or abused citizens.
Whos saying give any guns to everyone? You gun control retards are insane.
Switzerland does that, how’s it goin’ for them? Pretty well I suppose… lmao
Switzerland has all of these things.
I don’t think you used enough buzzwords for your fear mongering. Try adding “assault” “tactical” “high capacity” to make sure everyone really starts sweating as they leave there upper middle class white suburban neighborhood.
Probably saying she’s pro gun to take republican votes
Flamed up Steam it seems to be working for Beto O’Rourke. He firmly stated he’s pro-2A but believes in sensible gun reform. You’re right, it’s a very smart strategy but the strength of the individual will make or break their overall campaign’s message get through to the people or not.
Where did Beto state he was pro-2A? This sounds more like him though. https://www.chron.com/news/politics/texas/article/Beto-O-Rourke-talks-gun-control-at-Houston-12810246.php
Doesn’t work that way. A republican isn’t going to vote for a democrat who likes guns. They will vote for the republican who likes guns
JJ Keller yeah it’s pretty bad move actually what she’s doing
not true she is an R and why i voted for trump over hillary because i rather an R destroy this country than a D and as jimmy dore continues to point out a lot of the things trump has done obama started and hillary clinton has cheered on
ICE being the main thing that hillary has cheered on
Most of her responses started with “my opponent”. I like most of her positions, and I would vote for her if I could, but she’s not a representative I actually want – I would just tolerate her.
David, where exactly does she state that she is open to expanding access to guns?
1980albatros she is very clear that she is open to hear arguments in favor of allowing more weapons to be bought and sold rather than less. And said she would consider them. She didn’t say she would for sure agree with someone just because she listens to them. Honestly from her rhetoric, I would be willing to be she would definitely lean more towards the direction of stronger gun control, but nonetheless her way of thinking and considering all sides is a fresh take and something David seems to approve of.
Title got changed
Vote for this woman please.
no she is a sellout vote for a justice democrat the R will win if she wins the primary just like trump beat hillary
She already won the primary. We don’t have any JD in Indiana, though we have some great progressives running for congress and the statehouse this year.
well if they arent justice democrats they cant be that great
she might have won the primary but she probably took a hell of a lot of money from corporations and i know because of that R vs R the R always wins
Endorsed by the Congressional Progressive Caucus and End Citizens United. Good enough for me!
ya but its not the right time to end citizens united that is what she will say just like all the other sellouts
Mass shootings because of assault style weapons is nothing compared to the number of gun deaths by pistols.
This candidate understands nothing about guns
they were also killed when reloading and the virginia tech student was only killed when they had to switch to that gun from what i remember they came in with multiple guns and it wasnt the glock that killed the majority of peoples
ihartevil, the VT shooter only used two guns, a Walther .22 cal pistol (10 rds mags) and a Glock 19 9mm pistol (mostly 10 rd mags with some 15 rd, which are the standard capacity). He didn’t use any “assault weapons”, by any definition of the term–you can even buy those guns legally in CA and NY, the states with the strictest gun laws in the country. So, your statement “not true those cant kill nearly as many peoples when reloading the cops can always take them out” is wrong. He killed 32 people! Reloading can be done in less than a second with practice.
see it was all the guns put together and they didnt need to reload they just quickly switched and it was once all of the bullets ran out is when they were killed
i know several of the guns had 15 rounds of bullets and its also why we cant let people own more then 1 gun as well but you probably dont care about that
ihartevil, no, he had at least nineteen magazines and fired at least 200 rounds. So, he had to do a lot of reloading.
no he didnt because he had several different guns and was always shooting one off from what i remember
the only time you can take a shooter out is when they have 0 bullets they are shooting
ALSO YOU NEVER ONCE PROVED WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT THE OTHER COUNTRIES IS TRUE PROVING RIGHT THERE YOU ARE A LIAR AND HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT
CA MADE THOSE GUNS ILLEGAL BUT TAKING THEM ACROSS STATE LINES CANT BE STOPPED AND THAT IS PART OF THE PROBLEM
I FORGET WHAT NY HAS DONE BUT I KNOW THEY DID SOME STUFF BUT IT DOESNT MATTER UNTIL ALL THE GUNS ARE ILLEGAL LIKE IN OTHER COUNTRIES
Subject matter as titled begins at 7:36.
She is not at all interested in expanding access to guns, by the way. What she is doing is trying to pander to the “Fudds”, the people who only own firearms for hunting and nothing else, in an attempt to get enough support from them so that she actually has a chance at beating a republican. This isn’t a genuine support for gun rights, only a campaign strategy. Her responses to David’s questions should make it abundantly clear that she is very much in the “campaign” mindset.
*This.* She’s basically every Washington Democrat representative ever:
☑ Medical services
☑ Social services
☑ FUDD gun policies
☑ Higher taxes
I concur, she’s pandering.
Good luck. I love Bloomington. I hope this district goes blue. The GOP screwed Bloomington, which is a liberal city, through Gerrymandering. I am way on the left and I rather have a New New Deal rather than have gun control. Universal Health Care and modernizing all infrastructure.
ihartevil I don’t live in Bloomington anymore, I live in the 20th District in Ca with Panetta. Panetta is as establishment as you get and he does not call for Medicare for All. I would vote for her in a heartbeat if I still lived there.
i wouldnt i would look to see if there is a justice democrat or a 3rd party running
also the R would be for it if he knew about the cellar dwellers that is what they are being called now
hospitals are bankrupt so we are back to funding them with lube corporations and virgin sacrifices that are kept in the basement and its fake virgin sex studies is how they are being funded
it cant be talked about because the government made TYT delete the vids whenever they tried to same with their section 12 vids and how elizabeth warren fought to get people out of section 12 who were wrongfully there (that is most peoples)
i am thinking she will have to give that up soon because the places are changing the dates to when they are supposed to be in court without her knowing
its really screwed up how hospitals are trying to get money from drug corporations or the lube corporations
this is why ron paul is for medicare for all now and that video also had to get deleted from whoever posted it because ron paul brought up the basement dwellers as he called them (it got changed for this wave as cellar dwellers thanks to mike papantonio and farron cousins)
Do you even live in Hoosier 9?
First of all, JD is not the end-all-be-all of political candidates. They cannot win everywhere, and you can’t force them on districts that don’t want them. Watson beat Canon by 2 to 1 (how did she cheat, btw?). Watson is explicitly opposed to keeping Pelosi as the Democratic leader in the House and has not walked it back. Maybe look at her endorsements? And understand that there are those here who have said they would have preferred an even more moderate candidate over her.
Rachel Fishbein her endorsements is why she could never win
it is proven Nancy Pelosi destroyed ballots and did some other underhanded things and a fight to do a reelection and a fight for a recount but since she destroyed ballots the reelection is what people are fighting for
what I am stating is facts for every election the location doesn’t matter
TYT and Jordan have gone over the cheating unlike Pakman who fights for the republican policies
Rachel Fishbein I don’t think this person knows what they are talking about in regards to the 9th. I lived in Bloomington for 12 years. I hope she wins, good luck.
Where does she say she wants to expand access to guns? Sounds like she implicitly supports an assault weapons ban. And she wants universal background checks. Where did this title come from?
Edit: aaand the title was changed…
she wont ban them she is paid for by the NRA
A SANE democrat that I could vote for if I lived in Indiana. These anti-gun democrats instantly lose not just republican votes but sane democrats like me who served in the military owns guns and is a STRONG believer in the second amendment. The instant anti-gun democrats start screaming bans Like Beto O’Rourke ESPECIALLY down here in Texas you INSTANTLY turn voters off and it’s just not republicans you lose. The anti-gun crowd wing of the party needs to EVOLVE or keep losing to republicans, IS this what you want? More sane democrats like Liz Watson and less anti-gun democrats please.
i am happy you love all of the school shootings and that you want to make it so the NRA gets even more money
i hope if there are more shootings they are around you
Karl Marx and anarchists would support arming the working class.
Nageva its usually affluent middle income that want to disarm minorities and the working class. they are safe in the suburbs drinking their lattes while others are at more risk of violence.
Which, ironically, would be a great argument to scare republicans if you want to ban arms
I’m a Hoosier 9. She will get my vote. I think she could take it, the 9th swings. So good luck Liz!
Me too! Volunteering for her campaign
Irrelevant but wow she’s absolutely gorgeous!
Grahamhg who hurt you?
you must be from South Dakota..
Have often dreamed of a political party that could embrace both the Second ammendment and a women’s right to choose .
Did you read what you just copied and pasted? ” well regulated militia”.
Technically the second amendment refers to gun rights under the context of a “well regulated militia, necessary to the security of a free state”, it’s not about hunting or even self defense.
Or men, particularly younger men, should have this potential risk in mind, and maybe avoid sex or stick with the non-pregnancy-inducing modalities. Then you don’t create an incentive for jerks to not worry about impregnating women who may be against abortion for religious reasons, who’d then have to support children by themselves. It’s the best compromise/balance.
Exactly, the second amendment has nothing to do with individual rights to own guns, it gives militias the right to bear arms.
If she supports an “assault weapons” ban, than she’s not pro-gun.
+ihartevil Of course they’re two different things, it’s called an analogy… You really need to research the firearm policies of 1st world countries other than Australia. You may need to be a sport shooter, or a hunter, or pass a background check, take classes, or get a license to own one, but AR15s are not generally banned for civilians, and they need not be banned here either.
Django Marine WHEN THE MILLITARY HAS THE WEAPONS THAT IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THE SECOND AMENENT STATES
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PERSONAL USE FOR OPEN CARRY SO YOU ARE SAYING MAKE OPEN CARRY FOE SEMIAUTOMATICS ILLEGAL LIKE OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE DONE LIME I PROVED USING YOUR LINK IS WHAT FRANCE DID
collection also means you can’t have bullets with it and that’s what you are looking at and you are only using Wikipedia and that is almost always proven to be wrong
THE OTHER FIRST WORLD COUNTRIES HAVE GUN REGULATIONS LIKE I HAVE PROVEN AND OTHER THEN FOR COLLECTING THE GUNS CAN’T BE USED FOR PERSONAL USE
you are the one who is for murder and America is the only country with this many school shootings
they also limit how many guns one person can own
if the gun has 10 bullets or less then they are allowed in those countries so if you have an AR15 that isn’t semiautomatic and holds 10 bullets or less it’s allowed
ihartevil A militia is not part of the military. Look up the definition of a militia. No one was talking about open carry. That’s you moving the goal posts again. I never said I was in favor of open carry, because I’m not. The licenses in those countries are for collection, hunting or for sport, depending on the country. Regardless, THEY HAVEN’T BANNED AR15s if you can buy them once you have the license. WHICH WAS MY WHOLE POINT. Germany has a 10 round limit. France’s limit is 31. Other countries have NO LIMIT as long as you have the proper license. Read the links of your own website. I never said I supported open carry or opposed licenses or a limit on the number of guns, or anything else. I said there is no need for an AR15 ban. You said every other country has banned them. Your own website proves YOU’RE WRONG. Many countries allow civilians to own AR15s. Those countries don’t have our mass shooting problem, therefore we don’t need to ban semi auto rifles either. You claim to be a leftist. We’re supposed to make our decisions based on facts, and not on feelings. The facts say a ban is not needed. Be mature enough to reevaluate your irrational position. Good day.
Django Marine YES IT IS WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK THE WORD MILITIA MEANS
I DID READ THE DICTIONARY UNLIKE YOU THAT CAN’T READ YOUR OWN WIKIPEDIA PAGE YOU USED AS A SOURCE
TYT ALWAYS TALJS ABOUT HOW WELL REGULATED MILITIA MEANS WELL REGULATED MILLATARY AKA COPS COUNT AS THAT
WHERE THE HELL ARE YOUR LINKS TO PROVE OTHERWISE
THEY DID BAN THEM FOR PERSONAL USE THE WIKIPEDIA PAGE PROVES IT ONLY THE MILITARY CAN USE THEM AKA WELL REGULATED MILITIA
*also analogies use similar things not very different things that is why it didnt work*
that is my analogy about you being pro murder did work
