We should not be charging people to use public transit when we rarely charge people to use roads that are way more expensive for tax payers to maintain and are significantly more environmentally damaging than transit. The state and federal government should do all they can to add incentives to use public transit and remove disincentives to using it. We also need to incentivize the building of way more high density housing around public transit centers. While I’m at it we need to reform parking minimums that have destroyed American cities. We also need to take a serious look at our flawed transit model that mainly focuses on brining people to and from urban centers. People have lives outside of work. We should have metro systems that form beltways around our cities to connect communities more directly on opposite sides of a metro area.

A few key points about Leaders We Deserve.

1. We want all Generations in government. Young people are vastly under-represented so we want to change that. In 2020, millennial and Gen-Z individuals only held 21% of State Legislative seats while representing 45% of the electorate. 2. 80% of our focus and resources will be spent on state legislatures like Florida, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina to lead the fight against the far right. 20% will be spent on congress.

Some folks come up to me and say: David, there’s nothing we can do. There’s no single policy that works. It’s true. There’s no single policy. It’s a multitude of solutions, all enacted in Massachusetts. The single best thing our government could do is federalize MA state gun laws We can both substantially reduce the number of gun deaths and injuries in this country with out banning most guns.

Patience is a virtue and change is possible. For those of you saying this account is fake it literally was created in 2013 and also it’s brave of you to assume I would take the time of day to write all these messages and fake this. But you do you.

Just had a great day shooting sporting clays. Like I’ve said before I’ve been shooting since I was in 4th grade.

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We know those words, but how can they mean the same thing in an America where a gunman like the shooter at my high school can threaten to shoot up my school multiple times and still legally possess an AR-15 as a 19 year old? How can we pursue life if our lives are laid bare in another person’s hands. How do we have liberty if we have to risk our lives in pursuit of an education?

Thread: Why Do These Shootings Continue The problem the gun safety movement and the American public who widely support gun laws is this- we get outraged for a week after these shootings and call for change but we fail to show up. The result is a reinvigorated gun rights minority who DO show up every year at state leg.

It might not seem like it but this week is probably the most significant one for march for our lives since the first march. This was the first time we organized at scale proactively at state capitols. This is a big deal because we can’t keep being only reactive after gun violence. We need to act now before the next shooting. Today was the first time MFOL has done that across the country and not just done a local event in DC on the anniversary of the march.

Woke is choosing reality over conspiracy, hope over fear, courage over cowardice and empathy over cruelty for a better future. Woke is about addressing past injustices of our country- not because it's easy but because it is hard and necessary to create a more perfect union. DeSantis wants to run from the past because he believes that addressing past makes us weak. I disagree. Though we are not responsible for many of the injustices we have today. We do have a responsibility to address them for the freedom of all Americans.

Even if you don't agree with me on much there is a place that I believe the vast majority of us (left and right) can agree on. Getting more information on how to reduce gun deaths. We can do this by funding more CDC and NIH research. Read below for why this is needed. There are a roughly equal number of gun deaths as there are sepsis deaths annually. BUT research on how to prevent gun deaths gets less than 1% the funding that sepsis research gets.

You have no right to a gun. You are not a militia. When you’re talking about your second amendment rights you’re talking about a states right to have what is today the national guard. The modern interpretation of 2A is a ridiculous fraud pushed for decades by the gun lobby. Also Bruen has to be one of the most illogical and stupid decisions ever put out by SCOTUS that 20 years ago if turned in as a paper at almost any law school would have got an F.

There are two significant things left and right do agree for the most part on that we are not doing to address gun violence. Those are getting more information by funding research to know what works & funding mental health more to reduce the 2/3 of gun deaths that are suicides. There is no excuse for not doing both those things especially when we can pass both through reconciliation so we can avoid the filibuster.

If I ever hear of another politician say they were waiting for a mass shooting to act on gun violence I am going to lose it. If you are a politician who is waiting for kids to die to do something please and I mean this in the most sincere way possible. Go fuck yourself. Yes really this is an actual thing we have heard doing this work and it is insanely insulting.

At times I get so enraged at the state of affairs in our country it’s hard to even put into words. We are increasingly becoming the antithesis of what we stand for as a country.. Our leaders should be fighting to get more books on shelves not banning them.
They should protecting the marginalized not targeting them. As I see it now we have failed to promote the general welfare, promote domestic tranquility and regulate our militia.

Sometimes I get really stressed about how our generation will ever make it through DeSantis and the SCOTUS. Then I remember we have the one thing on our side they can’t buy more of but is the most valuable thing to have in politics. Time. We will outlive both and we’re voting. Like with investing the most valuable thing to have is time in the market. We are laying the groundwork now for one of the largest political shifts in modern American history.

After reading about the history of the second amend and talking with a lot of hist & law professors- I believe the second amendment has been intentionally misinterpreted. It was never meant as an individual right it was created to protect state militias like the national guard. It says well regulated militia for a reason. The “shall not be infringed” part means the federal government is not allowed to forcibly disarm state militias. I’m not alone in this interpretation. Over 100 years of jurisprudence back me up on this.

Just your daily reminder every single day is another opportunity to put our politics aside and work together as Americans to reduce gun violence. Until we make our response to these shootings a productive dialogue and action instead of endless debate and inaction- this won’t end. I’m not changing what I believe in and I don’t expect you to either but I do expect us to find common ground even if small and act on it.

Today was the first time I got a Valentine since that day in 2018 and didn’t feel triggered. I am so thankful for my therapist and friends/family who’ve helped me come this far. Now that I got my mental health in check and a good support system I can’t wait to graduate college and do more work than ever to end gun violence.

If we’re smart enough to land a man on the moon before any other country I’m sure we can stop our kids from getting shot god damn it. And honestly fuck anyone who says we can’t. We’re the most powerful country in human history. Pull your head out of the sand. The only limits we have in terms of what we can do should be the laws of physics not a lack of courage.

THREAD Especially for those who don't agree-
Every single one of these shootings is a chance for us to change our response to gun violence from one of debate and inaction to one of consensus building and taking action. We have to work together on ending this American epidemic. I can respect the fact who don't agree but I can't accept the fact there is nothing we can do to reduce gun violence. The idea that there is anything we can't do is completely antithetical of what it means to be American.
