    To say that "we won a Senate seat so we don't have to debate" means you're probably in the wrong job. We were sent to the Senate TO debate. the Dems are ready, the people are waiting.

  5. "What we are hearing from the party opposite is fear mongering at best. Any time that we have a mass shooting we hear their somber confirmations of how tragic such events are and that it's just a shame. And then we hear the word they reach for at any point when convictions are cancelled out: But. Our comprehensive gun reform bill does three things. It says that we must perform a background check when a gun is purchased. What we are saying is that those who by law shouldn't have guns, shouldn't have guns. If you have forfeited your rights under the law, to own a gun; you shouldn't. We are a nation of laws and decency and we should abide by them. Why are the Republicans against that? They shouldn't be. With all the talk of "law and order" it's time for us to make sure that those who are able to own guns can and those who aren't legally able to don't. Second, that if you do own a gun you should store it safely. To me, this is simple common sense. They are weapons, they are designed to kill. If not stored properly someone will get hurt and the data supports that state laws that require safer storage has played a part in a drop in accidental deaths. What we are asking is that if you choose to own a gun, that it is stored safely. Why are the Republicans against that? They shouldn't be. Gun safety classes are incredibly thorough on their safety lessons. But it's that we believe the third pillar, that if there is an overwhelming preponderance of evidence that you are a danger to yourself and others that you should be stopped and have access to those guns taken away for a set limited amount of time. Something that we believe most Americans would support. To these three the Republican Senators fuss and bemoan the erosion of rights, and the socialistic deep state, hard left line of making sure people are safe. So then let's have the debate. We are calling for the common sense gun legislation to be brought to the chamber and debated. If the party opposite can give us an actual reason why they don't believe this legislation should be debated, so be it. But not wanting to, and not wanting to find the time isn't acceptable. If they aren't scared of the debate they'll come to the debate."

    Mr. President Second for cloture and yield
  10. It takes a lot to reform anything. You’ve got to have total buy in and we didn’t have it when I was Governor. Republican legislators wouldn’t let us get it through on either issue. That’s not a critique to the party in general but it is the facts (OOC: are Republican strategy on tenants rights currently) What we do is we press our goals and then work through legislative process. In this country we have a long history of executive and legislative working together for common goals. I think education reform and tenants rights are attainable goals that both parties should hope to get done. In specific on tenants rights, you can legislate minimum standards. Our vision, your action.

    While I understand that we must take a stand against tyrannical governments; it is imperative that we do so without committing ourselves to further war1/3 This country has been in almost two decades of direct war. A third campaign of boots on the ground isn’t in America’s best interest. 2/3 I trust the President; and at this time she’s never hinted at a desire to commit troops. However, preemptively I will say no to direct escalation.
