  1. problem with kids from cites that are liberal and never held a gun but want to remove a gun (but those that are criminals only have guns in those cites and they support them),. you cant win to those that obey the law and yet you want to remove the 2nd amendment right for those that worked,. retired and served in this nation.ย  another fact most all the mass shooter were from a liberal based family that what the news don't say yet over time will be shown.

  2. Trump is a souless weak, weak being. He tells his base want they want to hear, then, does what he wants to line his pockets. The NRA spent more on his campaign than any other candidate in history.

  3. It is TIME for the entire Parkland advocate gang to DESCEND on Kentucky , call out Moscow Mitch, keep speaking Loudly, and do NOT let up

  4. Right, liberals. Banning guns would stop criminals from using them. If law-abiding citizens could not have guns, that would stop people from getting them illegally, and committing mass shootings. Criminals always follow the law. Do you liberals realize yet how insane your "logic" sounds?

  5. Assault rifles have proven to be weapons of mass destruction. This shouldn't come as a surprise, because that's exactly what they were designed for. And we've got the body counts to prove it. The lethality and aesthetics of assault rifles is the whole appeal behind them. It's also the reason why it is the preferred weapon of mass shooters. The fact that we allow such a weapon to be sold to the public for the sake of greed, is a crime and a mortal sin. Because that greed comes with a price, and victims like the twenty 6 and 7 year olds at Sandy Hook are the ones who paid that price.

  6. As we've been forced to note, far too many times…
    Our nation needs a new name, properly befitting our '#1 status' in gun-related violence. And so…
    "Welcome to Ammo-merica…Good Luck…!" ๐Ÿ™„

  7. Of course, Trump will always cave to blood thirst dictators (Putin and Kim) and blood thirsty American criminals (LaPierre and the Russian mob).

  8. It's pathetic how congress uses legislation votes to decide how much they care about the opinions, feelings and lives of their constituents. #TermLimitsForCongress

  9. These people seriously need to let it go and move on. When someone commits suicide does anyone honestly care what the person used? Definitely not! Why should it be any different when someone commits murder?

  10. Sadly this is a long game and the GOP is not seeing the change happening. They are not seeing the youth of America is not thinking about government the way mom and pop did. They have pushed them away thinking they're irrelevant but with all the retirement in the Republican ranks will allow these kids will step up in mass with no real connection to the far right. Thankfully most are moderates. As a Texan in his 40's who went to two wars and came home to a rising facisist GOP I decided to renounce my republican membership. I hope the youth wave coming brings everything back to a more centrist level.

  11. Parkland "kids" are making a significant contribution and are to be applauded…Wayne LaPuff ha$ Ma$$acre Mitch and The Don in their pockets. It wrong. Very wrong.
    Wide support nationwide for stricter gun control laws more in depth background checks. How can the gun overrule the countries wishes. NRA has not been about 2nd Amemdment Rights in two decades. Maybe longer.
    Then they've had that Ru$$ian money.
    No one needs an assult type weapon.

  12. Umm… With a name like "Israel" I suspect he's probably Jewish. So I'd trust him to count my money, eat my children and sleep upside down.
    Oh wait! I'm not Presuhdent Gump!
    Anyway, must dash – I'm looking for words like stereotype….

  13. THE DEMOCRATIC SERPENT LEFT IS THE SAME SERPENT LINE WHO ENSLAVED THE BLACK RACE, MURDERED KENNEDYS AND PUT GMO GENOCIDE INTO THE FOOD DESTROYING MILLIONS

  14. That was different, no voice from the gun lobby screaming about rights and criminals will always find a way to get a gun.

    Pleasant change

  15. THEY WANT YOUR GUNS, SO YOU CAN NOT PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE CRIMINALS THAT WILL GET THEM IF THEY ARE LEGAL OR NOT. NOTICE IT IS THE MENTALLY DERANGED PEOPLE DOING THIS KILLING NOT PEACEFUL GUN OWNERS. CHINA WOULD LIKE US NOT TO BE ABLE TO PROTECT OURSELVES FROM AN INVASION. CHINA RUNS MSNBC.

  16. The NRA is nothing but a domestic terrorist organization that funnels Russian money to corrupt republicans to do their bidding.

  17. Guns are for protection…or so they say… So where are these "protection rifles" I keep looking for… All I see are "assault rifles"… What am I doing wrong?

  18. Again to the mindless drones, the FBI has done a study and concluded the laws Congress seeks will have zero effect on violent crime, since they all know that what is their real objective power,

  19. The states can very well pass some of the gun legislation, don't wait for the Feds. Red flag laws are being passed, every effective!

  20. Republicans will go down in history as our second greatest shame, the first greatest shame were our racist slave owning roots.

  21. People need to wake up. The right wing/nra/gun people have made it very clear over the past decades that they are stockpiling weapons…using the 2nd amendment fear thing…in order to stop brown skinned people, who will soon be the majority, from having power. They freely refer to "the race war". You think such a thing is far fetched? You haven't been paying attention to current events in our country. Everything's gone mad. The cat's out of the bag. Pandora's box opened.

  22. doing the same thing and expecting a different result IS insanity. You won't get anything done going through the process, it hasn't worked and we have a mass shooting every day. You want change, buy a law that removes lobbying.

  23. When are you people gonna open your eyes? Haven't you noticed it is the Republicans who refuse to speak up, and Republicans who back Trump all the way? It isn't "Congress won't do something". It is REPUBLICANS are blocking! Mitch McConnell! Republican voters! Good God, people. It isn't all of Congress! It's been ONE party all along! Wake up!

  24. No such thing as gun violence. We also live in a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with sports or hunting and is specifically for the killing of criminals and tyrants.

  25. You know who the NRA is? 2+million citizens who are gun enthusiasts and Second Amendment supporters!
    Congressman will get primaried because the citizens will vote for representatives who will support their second amendment rights.
    We already have background checks. In most of these terrible instances the system has failed, not the laws and that is why we don't want more laws.
    Every law is a dimunition of your rights!

  26. How is the NRA responsible for parkland and not the FBI and Broward country sherries department for ignoring the multiple trips they took to his house.

  27. Actually if you want to reference blood money you should take a look at Plan Parenthood. Yet sticking to the issue I have no problem with universal background checks. They will not make a difference but I have no problem with them. Saying that I wouldn't give in one inch to the left, anti gun activist or any of the Parkland people who are fighting for something that had nothing to do with the shooting at Parkland. Conservatives learn from the past that if you give the left a little they come back demanding more. So screw them LOL

  28. ๐Ÿ˜’democrats started the kkk; el paso shooting was a registered democrat! Msmbc fake news works for democrats! Go to infowars.com for real news!

  29. everyone that dies is giving their life for the united states constitution for people to have the right to play with guns.
    the dead kids and random people are more patriotic then gun owners or the NRA could ever hope to be.
    even though same people who claim to be the real patriots like to claim they are the real patriots and those that die arent real and are made up and actors. sickos. fragile ego's.

  30. Parkland should have never happened Israel or his deputies were called to that pyscopaths house 29 times they failed to act the blood is their hands!!!!! Gun laws do nothing we have 20,000 laws on the books now !!!! Law abiding people should not lose rights over the acts of madmen!!!!! Stop stealing Americans rights and start dealing with the real,problem!!!!!

  31. True fact: if America got rid of democrat run , gun free zone New York, Chicago and LA, America drops to 197 out of 203 countries in gun violence.

  32. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
    Thanks Tyah Roberts, Former Parkland Student; and Co-founder of Gun-safety Group: "March For Our Lives." Thanks for your activism and contributions!๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’•

  33. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ We appreciate this discussion on Gun Safety Congressman/Fmr., Rep., Steve Israel, (D) New York! ๐Ÿ’™

  34. 5:00 The NRA is a member funded and run lobby IRS records prove this.
    The NSSF is the industry lobby you lying DemocRAT.

  35. Part of the problem with lawmakers' stance, aside from being in the pocket of the NRA and other corporations, is that they want to "keep guns out of the hands of those that pose the threat." They view people of color as the biggest threat, that is not the case. We all know most of the mass shooters are white males! Think about it, if people of color were behind these mass shootings, would lawmakers still be twiddling their thumbs? Would the NRA be so quick to intervene? Be honest.

  36. It only takes literally one call to stop the president from doing the right thing, that 90% of Americans and 80% of gun owners want done.

  37. Little kids don't understand what guns are. Why would adults listen to them? You don't need to get a background check if you make the gun yourself. Guns are really really really really really easy to make.

  38. Today's NRA ( national rifle association) is not FDR's NRA ( national recovery administration) . Today's NRA should change their name, dishonoring FDR.

  39. I guess is Parkland actually happened then more people would probably be worried about it… there is no way that all of those people ran in and out of the building with no blood tracks on their feet… there is no way that this coverage happened without showing body bags carrying children out… wake up America, quit drinking the Kool-Aid!!

  40. Fk!!! All this criminals!! They are selling weapons to Criminal cartels in Mexico!! So much Blood on their Hands,Cartels and NRA!!! They are the same ๐Ÿ’ฉ's*CARTELS*

  41. It is in this First Nation's Native Americans opinion we need another Civil War … In my opinion it is time to shot every single Democrat and Liberal and Progressive and Socialist in the face then we can bury them in the sewer's where they belong ….. First they want to take you freedom of speech then they want every ones guns so when the Government is ready for you to come get you to take you and your family to the slaughtering grounds and you wont even be able to defend your self ….. Last thing i want is https://espressostalinist.com/genocide/native-american-genocide/?fbclid=IwAR1m_u4DMXXLMd1N6ocI-2KeSkSG_eRH6ZdkhjZ7IfRzV0iUOKMeH1JxXe0 and this https://www.nlm.nih.gov/nativevoices/timeline/543.html?fbclid=IwAR2PY9QgBN6ZGg2xfQIYxGQab_nR2MMG-xO_jPgShSfT-DSh1kqqH1L05pk all over again …..

  42. We have the right to own firearms, itโ€™s not a privilege like a drivers license, itโ€™s a right. These individuals that claims they want common sense gun control what they really want is a gun registry and then gun confiscation. We have common sense gun control in place in fact the laws go beyond common sense and the current laws arenโ€™t enforced. Yes, we should remember parkland high school and how the Sheriffs office refused to engage the shooter and refused to protect those students. The deputies allowed the shooter to exhaust his ammunition ditch his firearms and pass through their security parameter. So Iโ€™m thinking of parkland when I ask why there was no armed security on site other than a sheriffโ€™s deputy that refused to do anything.

  43. "COLD DEAD HANDS" you fools would do well to remember this. enough talking to you sissy soy boy cuckold's. I'm out.

  44. Create an abortion database, ban high capacity late term abortion, install director of life protection, raise legal age to get an abortion to 21, apply for a permit valid for 1 abortion, mental health services for recipients of abortions.

  45. So once again time after time after time after time all of you a shocked at Washington. You watch events unfold be it a gun crisis, weather related crisis, home less crisis, illegal entry at the border crisis, Iraq crisis, burning down the Amazon Rain Forest crisis, flood crisis, hurricane crisis, China crisis, North Korea crisis, Russian crisis. climate crisis, Trump crisis, national debt crisis, wall street crisis, Iranian crisis, social security crisis, my pancakes didn't turn out just right this morning crisis, drug crisis, mental health crisis or what ever the crisis that has ben chosen for a particular day and you are shocked and dismayed over Washington's lack of response to what crisis? Choose one of your favorite crisis and then justify why it goes to the top of the list? Go ahead, you decide the priority ! All up to you, balls in your court, you can do this because you feel just that concerned and emotionally attached to your hand picked crisis that is so near and dear to your heart ! Go ahead, we are waiting patiently ! Go ahead? Well?

  46. What is the cause of mass shootings? We have had hi capacity guns available since the 1930's. Remember the Thompson machine gun of Dillinger and Al Capone? We've had assault weapons for almost 100 years. The mass shooting of relatively random strangers is a new phenomenon. Changes in guns did not make that happen. What did? What changed? What has changed is how we raise boys. More boys are raised without good father figures involved in the daily lives of growing boys. How much time do boys spend with men vs time spent with mom's, women teachers, and woman-controlled activities? How much of their week is just spent with other boys of the same age? How many boys are growing up socially isolated, and rather alone? How many boys spend many hours per week working shoulder to shoulder with men doing manly things? I think our society has changed in recent decades. Dad's, uncles, and big brothers have become less present. Women, buddies, TV, and the internet have become the minders and primary parents. We're raising more screwed-up boys because of it.

  47. I'd like to see a study of the dad's of each of the mass shooters. I'll bet they were mostly absent, or were bad dads..

  48. No one is safe in America
    America is at war with America ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
    Trump's hate rallies have got to stop
    People of America must stop NRA
