Bass, sorry but I just don't get it. You're saying you want to talk with the condition that no restrictions will be placed on gun access. You want to preserve 18-year olds buying military weapons online.
And you say you have a solution without GOP legislation to back it up, which makes it seem like just a talking point. And it also makes it seem that you know this and are fine with it.

Bronco: Russians are pressing forward regardless of what people in the West think, which should answer your question.
But another question is if Russians understand the true cost since so much information is hidden.

Bass: banning guns is not the solution
Closing loopholes, which has been my point, is one step in the right direction. You consistently talk about total bans even though I'm not saying that. The GOP opposes any measures, not just a ban.
liberals dismiss it and instead of cleaning up their own States and cracking down on thugs that commit crimes and kill with impunity in their cities
You've exhausted all of your knowledge about the gun issue so you're doing the usual which is to just rant about liberals.
Have a good night.

In fact, when Ted Cruz says (once again) that armed guards are the solution or military type schools, the first thing the reporter should do is ask what legislation he has proposed to that end.
Then wait for the pause.

Bass: We have strict laws, many of them are not being enforced
That wouldn't have prevented this shooting so what's your point?
The GOP will continue to vote against common sense measures like loopholes anyway so they obviously aren't interested in changing anything.
And if the GOP thinks the problem is enforcement of laws and mental health, please list legislation they've introduced to combat that, otherwise it's just useless talking points.

Bass4funk: No, we want to discuss various ways how to decrease gun shootings
Would it be fair to say that you're going to "solve" mental health issues so there will be no more mass killings?
When you do, clear out some space for all the Nobel Prizes you'll win.
Much easier than closing gun loopholes.

TokyoJoe: If this idiot happened to be white it would be a far right, white supremacy issue.
I see you're leaving out the part where he wrote a manifesto and then intentionally shot black people. I think that's probably how the white supremacist angle into the discussion.
You are not a victim.

Bass: I did earlier.
Was that the 46 beds in Iowa? I figured you'd have more. Guess I was wrong.
and not the flags about what people seem to have known
Awesome. What red flags should we add to the list? What ways can we follow up on red flags? And the most important question: Are you willing to waive second amendment rights for these people who fail?
the kid was going through a lot of mental challenge
We would be more than happy to extend mental health services, which I believe you typically characterize as "cradle to grave entitlements". You seem to be proposing something where Democrats are against expanded medical care and Repubs are for it? Must be another school shooting.

Bass: They do and they want that and most gun owners are for it
For it? Really? Can you name any national GOP action on mental care due to mass shootings? How about the whole, "enforce existing laws" angle. Lots of GOP legislation to point to?
The GOP can and always do vote down any Drm changes to guns, and they don't present any of their own solutions.
Nothing changes, which is just what the GOP wants. They love their guns and they'll tolerate daily school shootings if it means they get to keep their best friend.

Bass: No, I’m trying to have a dialogue with the left
A dialogue that begins and ends with "more guns," never any comprehensive reform or mental health legislation. No support for closing background check loopholes, no support to "enforce the current laws." All just lip service until the headlines go away.
Meanwhile your Party of Safety tried ro get potential terrorists on the no fly list access to guns.
If you want police officers in every school in order to have your beloved guns, then tax the crap out of guns and ammo to pay for it. Your problem, not mine.

An article about the state of Iowa increasing their psychiatric beds by 46?
That will solve things in Texas.
Look, the GOP position on guns is to expand access, expand guns on the streets, and keep the broken system we have in place.
There's been no national push for mental health, just more security guards. You're trying to arm you way out of this issue but it will never happen if problems leak to other people.

Bass: The problem is deeper than guns and as I always say, the right is willing to sit down and discuss the issue and try to find possible solutions as to how best to deal with this serious problem effectively
No, you're not. You just want to keep your guns and you simply do not care if dead children are an unintended consequence.
Am I missing something? Did I miss the GOP bills trying to help with mental health? Name any legislation the GOP has offered to put forth for anything related to guns besides easier access.
