But who is going to pay them these high wages if companies don't want to open there lol? I am from this area there's almost no business there as is. The logging companies moved away decades ago because American labor is too expensive.

You left out jetpacks and golden rocket cars! Any absence of either for EVERY CITIZEN is austerity. Also the right wing will demand an assault rifle for every man, woman and child so don't you dare leave that out. And no one should have to work to make them either!

The region she represents is already economically depressed. Old mill towns where the last big companies packed left in the 80s. Driving through Ocean Shores or Aberdeen feels like it did when Kurt Cobain was there. It shouldn't make itself less attractive for businesses to open

So the data show households with guns are 11 times more likely to have an accidental shooting. If you're saying training will prevent this, then let's have mandatory training. Because obviously that's not happening now. Don't beat around the bush, this is a serious issue.

Logarithmic scale bud. You seem to not know what that means.
Sounds like you're making a case for a mandatory minimum amount of training to own a gun- which yeah- totally agree with you.

You're far more likely to accidentally shoot yourself or your family with your gun than someone breaking in vox.com/2015/10/1/18000520/g… And the Australia data shows both firearm homicide and suicide have more than halved since the ban- keep in mind the logarithmic scale of the graph

You’re right. In fact all people with mental illnesses should be given assault rifles the day they turn 16

Lol so is this supposed to be an argument FOR more guns while acknowledging that most police couldn’t handle a mass shooter?

Unfortunately Americans often think they are genuinely helping in most of the issues they get involved in- but this is the problem: they never learn- almost none of the military aid or wars it has waged have helped anyone and often make things worse. Look at Afghanistan today.

Ok again- why are you talking about Ukraine and not the dozens of other conflicts and genocides happening right now? Why are you only invested in Ukraine?

There’s actually a pretty mainstream argument in academia that the USA’s focus on international issues (the Cold War, Gulf War, Afghanistan) policing the world since WW2 have caused US voters and government to care less about its internal policy. ehistory.osu.edu/articles/hi….

Seems like you’re not too aware of the conflicts happening in the world.
