Depends how you're defining liberal. Is it a classical liberal merely concerned with toleration and equal rights? Or is it a policy focused liberal like bernie sanders? Or is it a "liberal" who is really just an SJW with no political savvy whatsoever who calls themselves a liberal for no reason?
i suspect youre talking about the 3rd option.
Yeah this was covered in a Last Week Tonight segment. Its not that science doesnt work, it obviously does. But money and media can corrupt it. They will take an entry-level study on, say, coffee beans and the study might conclude that coffee beans contain a chemical which MAY be able to lower body fat. But theres no other studies cross confirming this. But the media will take it and youll see blown up news stories like: THE NEW HOT WEIGHT LOSS CURE! 2 CUPS OF COFFEE A DAY AND WATCH THE WEIGHT FALL RIGHT OFF!!
But of course they dont tell you that the study isnt conclusive by any means. Also they completely leave out the fact that you need a healthy diet and regular exercise in addition to the coffee consumption.
Wow you mined a quote from one democrat from 1995. Here is the contents bill that Mrs Feinstein proposed in the senate in the wake of the orlando shooting: "1) determines that the transferee is known (or appropriately suspected) to be or have been engaged in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in aid of, or related to terrorism, or providing material support or resources for terrorism" and "(2) has a reasonable belief that the prospective transferee may use a firearm in connection with terrorism." The amendment Feinstein introduced last Wednesday, by contrast, lets the attorney general block a sale if he "determines, based on the totality of the circumstances, that the transferee represents a threat to public safety based on a reasonable suspicion that the transferee is engaged, or has been engaged, in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in aid of, or related to terrorism, or providing material support or resources thereof."
So while she as an individual wants a ban, she has proposed no such legislation at all. Also, even her above proposal has been criticized by OTHER democrats as too extreme. So you singled out one democrat that literally no other democrats agree with. And this is supposed to be evidence that all liberals want a ban on guns. Congratulations you made a terrible argument
Because its done with a gun thats fake significance? How exactly is it not significant? People who are suicidal have easy access to the 100% sure way to kill themselves and that shows in that statistic. That is a problem. It is one part of the entire large problem of gun violence in america. Gun accidents, suicides, mass shootings, homicides, theyre all part of the collective problem.
