End the Filibuster: Senate Can’t Pass Gun Control Despite Public Support

The #WhiteSupremacist who killed 10 people in #Buffalo, New York, was able to buy an assault rifle months after New York state police took him into custody for making a threat about committing violence. The gun store owner who sold the weapon says a background check showed a clean record.

We look at how background checks alone are not enough to prevent gun violence with Kris Brown, president of Brady, one of the oldest #GunViolence prevention organizations in the U.S.

Nina Khrushcheva: Talks to End War in Ukraine Are Collapsing as U.S. Seeks Regime Change in Moscow

As the UN warns about the devastating global impact of #Russia’s invasion of #Ukraine, talks to negotiate a peace settlement appear to have collapsed.

“It does seem that the United States thinks that Ukraine should be supported in its war effort, not its negotiation effort, until the very end,” says Nina Khrushcheva, professor of international affairs at The New School and the great-granddaughter of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev.
