Facts matter. If you try to change the facts, you are just giving your opinion.

This is the United States and we have a gun problem.

The Second Amendment already allows banning and regulating firearms. Change the wording a bit in one law, is all it takes and that would go a long way to fix our gun death problem.
As I said, if we can afford the F35, we can afford this.
The government doesn't need to pay anyone for their firearms. Any firearm used in the commission of a crime, regardless of the owner, gets trashed and recycled as something more useful. The only exception would be if the firearm was stolen and the owner reported the theft. Subject to change if that owner "lost" too many firearms over a period of time. This would require all firearms to be tracked each and every time they changed owners.
Only 30% or so of the population owns firearms. Of those, 10% of that 30% of gun owners are the problem. Either hard core or out right criminal.

The health insurance companies are the problem with our health care.

Their profits stand between you and your doctor.
Why let them participate in any Single Payer plans. Canada has the correct idea. Do not let the insurance companies cover anything except elective procedures.
Too many people just cannot get away from the idea that we need some kind of insurance for health care. The insurance itseld is the root of the problem. Get rid of it!
Since we are the very last industrialized nation to not go to some kind of universal health care, why are we not looking around to see how all the other countries have switched over and are doing it? The hard work has already been done all over the world. Why are we still trying to figure it out alone?

Huh, what?

Democracy for New Yorkers just got a little bit easier, and it couldn't come at a more crucial juncture.

A proposed bill in New York aims to require that all smartphones sold in the state can be decrypted or unlocked by law enforcement. The bill, currently in the senate's committee stage, must pass through both New York's state senate and assembly in order to become law.

How does the first sentence jibe with the second?
