Yes, I watched it, and it is not the first time that the NRA presented misleading material, in the interest of making firearms available to "everyone" including the mentally ill.

Of course I watched it. It is fairly typical NRA propaganda entitled "everyone gets a gun"

Bob: look at what happened to the US violent crime rate starting in the years following the passage of the Brady Bill in 1992. Correlation is not causation, but it can be evidence.

A universal background check requirement would not have prevented him from having that firearm.

Yes, well stated

"...laws that fail to accomplish their stated mission..."
Of the ten states that have the strongest gun safety laws, seven have the lowest overall gun death rate.
In the 19 states that require comprehensive background checks for handguns, there are 47% fewer women killed by their intimate partners, 53% fewer law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, and 47 % fewer suicides.
There is indeed evidence that gun safety laws can reduce gun violence.
What you have presented is nothing more than fallacious reasoning, turned into propaganda.
BTW, your claim that I am "making stuff up" and "claiming it's in my mind.." is a lie.

Evidently in Bob's world, when tens of thousands of lives and tens of thousands of serious injuries are at stake, even lifting one finger to be part of a solution is way too much of a burden.

You used a single incident to characterize California as a "failed model" and ignored the broader data that suggests otherwise. Thinking that way is the fallacy of "cherry picking".
When you use the faulty thinking to persuade others, it becomes propaganda.

Where are you getting your numbers? The CDC website places California at 5.0 and Texas at 5.6. I would appreciate a link to your numbers if possible.
Yes, i agree, correlation is not causation. That is why fully funded and ongoing research is imperative.
