"I want to bring a voice in on that will nullius. So w are also spoke about the parties. This week with tunisia sullivan. Who's the head of the boston branch of the nwa see. She says the party platform needs to be more focused on real economic issues. Here she is whether single payer healthcare should be one of the top three policy positions advanced by the party. I'm not sure i do think. Bread and butter is focusing on jobs. We have the jobs here. We haven't had our policy and programs that have been effective in helping to prepare the residents of the commonwealth to transition into those jobs which joe implies that the voices of the people who need those policies are not carrying the same weight the weight that they would need to. So i'll flip the tables on you. What advice would you give to the commonwealth's democratic party to move the ball forward on core issues that have to do with jobs employment economic security in this time of crisis. I mean i agree. Focusing on jobs is a good idea. How trump got elected in the first place and democrats didn't seem to understand that that approach for why he got elected. Was you know talking about jobs. And i think a lot of the democrats who won this time around. We're talking about jobs as well. A lot of the moderate democrats who talking about that. So i think that's a good strategy i would if i was a democrat crapping. Were talking about along those lines all right now. We try to keep our focus local here but there is the equivalent of you know a slow moving car-crash basically happening in washington and it's kind of hard not to watch it.

I okay. let's stipulate that this is bad for democracy. What i want to ask you is what do you think the end game is here. Prolong resign undermine biden for a twenty twenty four race for trump. Is it no strategy. Is it just flailing georgia. Georgia georgia elliott. What's the endgame here. I mean. I think the end game is trump for the republican party as his party for the next couple of years in that creating a further fragmentation amongst the the national party for for the rnc. And what that means for them collectively moving forward right because while you have some republican senator clear that cam you can't build a party with a wing of white supremacy if being part of it right but then you have some others.

"The the the ones that really stood out. We're the ones that had to do with bringing elements of the row act into law which essentially further a codified abortion rights here in the commonwealth will governor baker sign. He he can exercise discretion. What do you think he's going to do on that. I believe it's likely that he will sign it. I expressed an unhappiness with the way it came about getting eaten. He didn't take a position on the bill but he's just basically said it didn't really belong in the budget which is a good point on his part. I mean why. Why are we getting eleven. Hundred amendments budget many of which have nothing to do with the budget at all. I think that's valid question. But i think you know interesting to me to see how baker react because it might tell a lot whether he's seeking a third term or not. I don't think he can. He can come across as being anti choice and reject this bill. If he's running for a third term. I think it would be a little risky on his part so interesting to see what he does. So i wanna ask.

Which is you know at a time when we have such a crisis happening throughout our commonwealth the kind of reckoning that the legislature should be involved in. Is this more of the same theater.

You tie it with the budget process so that it kinda muddies muddles the water for everybody But in the end everybody shows up as a hero.

"Vermont state house with Vermont governor, Phil Scott who is a Republican Richard Feldman Philbin. When you hear that moment from the signing ceremony. What does that tell you about the nature of this debate in states across the country? Well, I think in many ways the pro gun community led by the National Rifle Association is somehow cornered itself by its own success. The politics of this issue transcends, the policy of this issue and therein lies so much of the problem in getting this debate focused in a way that we can achieve results that work for everyone. And we can but not when we focus on the politics, but only on the policy, we really have to align. Those two and dealing with the perceptions versus the realities in this society. It's highly unlikely that anyone you are I know directly is going to be shot. It's a statistical thing. But of course, it's gonna make news and we're all in the same boat. When when we see things, Dan and day out, we feel like it's all around us. We deal as human beings with these perceptions. Fizeau long now when the pro gun rights community has gone after something they've often gotten their way. So you end up getting cornered by your own success? I'd like to know what some of your listeners think about these kinds of issues gotta move forward. We've gotten a number of comments about it, particularly from people who do consider themselves. Like the voicemail we played earlier strong. Second amendment supporters Connor tweeden. I consider myself a strong second amendment supporter and firearms. I reside in Kentucky. But I don't understand why it is legal for any adult of any age to purchase a firearm with no prior training of any kind reflecting in Ohio tweeted in Ohio are GOP supermajority. Legislators will not hold a hearing for a proposed red flag Bill. Instead, they are pushing a stand your ground Bill that is expected to pass in lame duck governor casick may veto it. But the super majority is expected to override stand your ground bills. By the way, you probably have heard of these these are laws that say that you have a presumption of legal authority to stand your ground with firearm. If you are attacked in any place that you would otherwise have the legal right to be. Your home a public place that you are allowed to use deadly force in that location. And you do not have a responsibility to flee Chris Brown. I wonder how you would respond to that clip. We heard of governor Scott being heckled at the Vermont state state house. It just seems like the emotions are so high and so hot that there is no way in some states. Among some folks to come up with anything reasonable with anything bipartisan any idea is going to be met with a flat out vehement loud. No. Well there as Richard noted. I I agree with what he said the politics of this issue can often seem to transcends the policy of this issue and that doesn't serve anyone's interests. Well, what we find around. Our issue is a polar ization. But mainly of perception, and there are certain people who believe, and this is really fueled by the the NRA, and it's rhetoric around us. I think more than anything else that any regulation of guns means it's a slippery slope to taking guns away in this country. And it's simply not correct from the very beginning of our country, and we had regulations in place around gun ownership. References made to the wild west. And what that was like, well, actually in most of those towns, you had to check your guns before you even entered the town, there's a rich history and heritage of this that I think among a certain subset of people gets gets distorted, but you know, I go out and talk about this issue all the time, and I have to say most of the responses, I get in audiences that have guns, and many that don't from gun owners is I agree with you. I stand with you. And I agree with Richard. I think the NRA is really boxing itself into an unfortunate corner on this issue. And it's not consistent with what the vast majority of Americans think should happen. I think it's also interesting to note that when you talk about the politics, overcoming the policy of it that things are so polarized in congress at the federal level in Washington that it seems like we're we're very far away. Away from having the kind of discussion on practical solutions that were having in the states. I mean, HOGAN is Republicans Scott's a Republican you have in the states the ability for Democrats and Republicans to come together on some solutions. I'm Joshua Johnson. And you're listening to one A. We should note, by the way. The today's program was produced in partnership with guns and America, a new public media reporting project on the role of guns in American life. You can find out more about this project online at guns and America dot org, by the way, Scott before we move on from bump stocks. Remind us how states did with bump stocks, which ones ban them, which one is allowed them. What's the national picture? Look like, so as we noted earlier, the bump stock that really people began to hear about that after Las Vegas, and since then we now have we've seen ten states that have banned bump stocks. It's a fairly easy thing to do. I think because it's not something it's not going to affect hunters or most gun owners. However, there are concerns about just how effective this might be in states that have passed it a lot of questions, for example, you outlaw bump stocks. And you're basically saying if you have when you gotta turn it in in places that have passed this week. Written about this people are not turning them in. So some question about the effectiveness, but. Well, and there's also the slippery slope argument that has come up with bunk stocks. I mean NPR's morning edition interviewed Michael Hammond last week, he's the legislative council for a group called gun owners of America, which is basically against all gun control. The group is not the NRA. It's a separate group, but it takes similar stances against gun legislation that restricts access to firearms in that interview with morning edition, Michael Hammond said he worried about what he bump stock ban could lead to our question is whether or not this is an effort to go the back door and banned semi-automatic by regulation. Richard shelby. What are you? Making Michaels argument. I know Michael a long time. And I think what he's trying to say is that bump stocks have nothing to do with a semiautomatic. It allows as you correctly identified it earlier in the show, the kinetic energy of the firing the gun to allow it to essentially go up against your finger and fire another round. But without a bump stock, I can do exactly the same thing with my finger. It doesn't make a semi automatic an automatic. Wait, wait, wait, wait a minute. Can you really do exactly the same thing with your finger? I mean having that degree of kinetic energy as opposed to having to rely on your own reaction time. Your ability of your index finger to go flick flick flick flick flick flick that is not the same. It's exactly the same thing finger inside the trigger guard. I can fire that gun just as quickly. Okay. Again, this is one of those issues that well, let's just ban it. I mean, if there was a terrorist incident involving a red Ford, and we said, well, let's ban red Ford true that over time that won't be read Ford's on the street so terrorists couldn't get a red Ford and go into people. That's a very Michael read Ford's are not designed to do mass amounts of damage. I think that's kind of that's that's an apples and oranges. And I'm I'm sorry. I I presume that you and I are of different generations. I don't think that someone who's a twenty two year old assailant versus someone who is you know, in their fifties or sixties or seventies. Both armed with firearms. Have equal capacity to flip their index finger at the same rate. They are not the same. It all depends on your training. But there's not much training involved in using your finger inside a trigger. God his going back and forth. Again, this is feel good legislation. And it really had nothing to do. It was a reaction if it was used in the gun. Let's ban it if the same number of people had been injured, but without the use no one would be talking about banning that device. There are other kinds of devices that have come up in some of this legislation drew in Pittsburgh tweeted, we have smartphones which can open with face recognition or fingerprints. Why can't we apply the same tech to firearms whole no solution is perfect? Although no solution is perfect. I would think it will help per the issue.
