  1. Things are bad when you reminisce about how great things were under GWB, where prisoners were being tortured at Gitmo and Abu Ghrab, Cheney was bankrolling off his connection to Halliburton and we were lied into a disastrous war. The Trump administration corruption makes GWB and Nixon look like choir boys.

  2. "A lot of the people that put me where I am are strong believers in the 2nd amendment"- DJT
    Translation- "Pay me and I will dance, I'm open for business"

  3. “But I also want to remember, that mental illness is something that nobody wants to talk about.”

    Does this statement make sense?

  4. tRump making vomit noises. There is no sense to be found in the sound of puking, but that is all fat boy the COWARD is capable of doing, projectile hurling noises he's heard but does not understand. His base is constantly covered with this bile and being even more stupid than his is , swallows his vomit as he's barfing.

  5. To me this is a simple fix that never gets discussed. Reverse the corporate personhood act and make lobbying illegal! Not sure why people think that they can stop the influence of the NRA without stopping the influence of Big Oil, Big Pharmaceutical, the Big Banks and weapon manufacturers.

  6. WAYNE LAPIERRE NEEDS TO DIE IN PRISON!! I HOPE THAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NEW YORK LETITIA JAMES FINDS ALL KINDA DIRT ON HIM SINCE HE'S UNDER INVESTIGATION TOO!!💯😈😈🆗🇺🇸✌😎

  7. Republican self-immolation continues. Is there any major Congressional issue they are not on the wrong side of? Good luck in 2020 boys.

  8. "A lot of people put me where i am" and do not like gun control ? Or so i can't do any thing about it because they will take my Money Train away ?

  9. The NRA/GOP is a terror for profit business. Every time there is a gun massacre in the US, gun sales skyrocket – gun manufacturers donate tens of millions to the NRA, and then the NRA gives millions to GOP politicians – to guarantee that more massacres will happen.
    The NRA perpetuates and profits off the murder of innocent Americans. They should be disbanded.

  10. "The National Rifle Association has rallied gun owners — and raised tens of millions of dollars — campaigning against the threat of a national database of firearms or their owners. But in fact, the sort of vast, secret database the NRA warns of already exists, despite having been assembled largely without the knowledge or consent of gun owners. It is housed in the Virginia offices of the NRA itself. The country's largest privately held database of current, former, and prospective gun owners is one of the powerful lobby's secret weapons, expanding its influence well beyond its estimated 3 million members and bolstering its political supremacy.

  11. Don't forget that geeeneus trumpakov said that he is the second coming of god. I'm surprised, I didn't expect the second coming of god to be a racist, serial sexual predator, liar, sociopath

  12. Well, of course 45 has to do what the NRA says. He needs to do everything he can to stay in office because once he is out of office, it's Indictment Time! Thank you SDNY for finally looking into this criminal that you let slide for so long! Until then, 45's fellow grifters have him by the shorthairs.

  13. If we end Citizens United, we end the largest part of political corruption. The gun control approval rating for all these years clearly demonstrates how so many republicans have no interest in executing the will of the people, but for executing their own selfish interests of power and money, exactly what Jesus said was evil, as republicans claim to be Christian.

  14. How many children's deaths will it take to get some sort of sensible control of the type of weapons are sold the law abiding citizens?

  15. ALL WHITE PEOPLE NEED TO GET THEIR HEADS EXAMINED IMMEDIATELY IN ORDER TO PREVENT ANOTHER MASS SHOOTING! TYPICAL PROFILE OF A MASS SHOOTER IS WHITE!

  16. Russia targeted issues that cause a divide in Americans, the NRA, and gun control is one, and that why they had the spy chick infiltrate the NRA and hook up with people in positions of power!

  17. let's also talk about why ppl like mitch and wayne are still in congress and at the top of the nra after 20 whole freaking years!!!… they need to GO!!

  18. Technology outpaced you authoritarian communists. We now have affordable 3D printers. All you need is a chunk of plastic or aluminum and every American can now make AR15's in their garage. God bless America🇺🇸

  19. Background checks (Particularly for private sales) violate the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments, and the presumption of innocence guaranteed in the common law!

  20. Main stream media should stop treating the NRA as part of the society. They are a cult with extreme amount of corruption, more than half of the donations goes to the luxuries lifestyle of the top members. A cult never gets this much attention and validation as being legit.

  21. The epitome of mental illness is blaming mental illness for mass shootings. If he wasn't president I wonder if Trump would have been admitted to a mental institute by now?

  22. and how many million of dollars for gun lobbyist did it take to change trump's mind and that is a good reason for congress to investigate trump's taxes and how much did it take for putin to turn trump into a puppet

  23. Bottom line: Shoot LaPierre, McConnell and Trump and see if their attitude doesn't change. Right now they are controlled by money and not good sense. Even the threat to the tax status of the NRA isn't going to persuade them not to continue to incite our young American men to mass murders. We may not be able to put Trump on Death Row for aiding and abetting until he's out of the White House. But we can certainly make an example of the other two. This is murder that is planned in advance. They think that they are smart because they are using young men as their "tools", but they are still the ones responsible for the murders. They are the American equivalent of the ISIS terrorists who strap a suicide bomb onto a young person. These young men are convinced to commit mass murder, and their lives are sacrificed. For what? For a few greedy old men?

  24. The Sanctimonious Slippery Slope that D.D.T. (Dangerous Dictator tRump) is on "then all of a sudden everything gets taken away"! We need to Ban D.D.T. & the Poisonous Toxins that follow this Liar & Thief…

  25. For nearly a year i have been trying to cancel my NRA membership. I have written and sent in the required cancellation and made more than one phone call. I finally sent a 'return receipt' letter which costs $7.00 and hope to hear back from them.
    We shall see, they've made it very frustrating and difficult to be removed from their 'active members' list.

  26. Olly North left the NRA shouting that this guy was fleecing its members. At this stage, the NRA didn’t even have anything to lose, but they BLOCKED what America wants, for power’s sake! The NRA is a Menace to America. I speak as a gun owner ✌️

  27. How many Americans are today dead directly due to the policy and greed of NRA chief Wayne Lapierre. 10 000, 100 000 or more. This POS has American blood on his hands. When will you stand up and say "No More"..

  28. After his defeat, Trump Tower will become Trump's prison. And its new address will be 725 Barack H. Obama Avenue. Poetic justice if ever there was.

  29. Makes you wonder where the nra got the money from to buy trump and all his sycophants. Russia again? They funneled money to trumpublicans through the nra before… 🤔

  30. The Second Amendment starts with the words "A well REGULATED militia.."

    It was also written in a time when reloading your gun took 20-30 seconds.

    How about this, if you want to own a gun you need to join your local State Defense Force or Army reserves, be trained and have a license.

    You'll then be part of a militia, thus fulfilling your need to be a constitutional purist.

    The NRA can't claim to be protecting the Second Amendment while not even following it at the same time.

  31. There is approximately as many guns in the US as there are people. Background checks might keep a few guns from being transferred between owners but it will not solve the problem. Guns without ammunition are very expensive clubs. It's the ammunition, stupid. A tax, fee, like those on cigarettes will drive up the cost of ammunition. If a box of bullets holds 20 rounds, a $5.00 fee or tax will give the victims a nice large fund for recovery or grief counseling.

  32. Lapierre is one of the biggest conmen ever; the NRA members are the mugs that support his multimillionaire lifestyle just like sheep following the ram.

  33. There's an important statistic that's missing from the debate. What is murder rate by members of the NRA? And, more importantly, why don't we already know????

  34. It’s as plain as the nose on your face that they put the almighty dollar before human lives. It’s not surprising really.

  35. Hi everyone from Switzerland,
    Unless you are in the military, you need a CLEAN CRIMINAL RECORD to get a gun! Is it so difficult to accept that not everyone in your country can’t purchase and own a weapon? Where is your common sens?
    Last but not least, assault weapons are only for the armed forces even semiautomatic rifle. The caliber from these weapons are design to inflict maximum injuries to an enemy.

  36. When did corporate news MSNBC and in part CNN decide to advocate Joe “Hillary” Biden for president? I’m sick and disgusted with the constant PR and apology tour campaign pushed on every morning show. Corporate media propaganda pushed to millions of TV viewers while attacking Bernie Sanders as “makes my skin crawl”, or too old. The truth is only being heard by just a few thousand on sites like u-tube by independent voices. Please contribute to the progressive democratic movement and tell your friends it's time for governmental change.

  37. The 2020s are going to be a rough decade in American history. Trump supporters won't accept him losing in 2020, and they're armed and angry. I heard a few times from a former friend that there were marches being organized to throw Obama out of the White House, think what they're going to say once dems regain control and erase Trump…

  38. I think we're to the point now of asking Politician to put the toothpaste back in the tube. Gun control, background checks are BS if I can go to a gun show and buy anything I want or go on the internet and meet someone in a parking lot and with enough money buy an arsenal. I am resigned to the fact that mass shootings are and will be as common as waking up everyday.Welcome to America!

  39. 0:55 "…mental illness, is something nobody wants to talk about…": Donny, you are mistaken; many, if not millions, want tot talk about mental illness… particularly yours

  40. This report just showed us you have an agenda that comes first before us, the citizens. You cut that NRA guy off during his answer, and then quoted the only part of his answer that supported you're apparent agenda in this report. Please, just grow up and tell the truth. Now for the record, I hate that man, he is an enemy to the people. But I wouldn't cut the guy off just because I didn't like what he was saying. Not doing that means a forcing of opinions onto others. Therefore, in my opinion, this is not a well rounded report.

  41. Before Assault Weapons of War were introduced to the Gun Toting street killers, the only large number of innocent deaths in the world which were caused by GUNS were initiated and undertaken by Mass Numbers or Groups of Terrorists. Ban Assault Weapons of War, as was done back in the 80's and 90's and stop this madness.

  42. Government under the Trump administration is a flip of the coin decision mode,on world problems it's a roll of the dice and snake eyes are the winner !

  43. The NRA doesn't even represent its members. It represents gun manufacturers and more sales for them at any cost, even at the cost of America's children's lives. Disgusting.

  44. 8 23 19 Hey Ari & the Team, Thanks for the post. The NRA might think about hiring a better plastic surgeon for Wayne. VOTE 2020! Be well. v

  45. 44 million Americans with mental problems of various types and degrees, and around 400 million guns in private hands. A society where mental health care is denied to tens of millions, due to the expense. It seems almost logical that you would elect a bunch of mental incompetents to govern you.

  46. Russia owns the NRA; they bailed them out of bankruptcy! Russia owns the Republican party, because of greedy senators like Moscow Mitch, the commie traitor. Russia owns Donald Trump, because he owes them for years of loans for his failing business dealings. Russia's commie partner, Donald Trump, sold out America by asking for and accepting Russia's help in their interference in our elections so he could become president of the United States. Putin's master plan outsmarted the Republican imbiciles, and the American voters allowed this to happen. Vote Russia out, 2020! Vote Blue!!

  47. Vast numbers of people are very concerned about the Scourge of mental illness in America. Quite alarmingly though,
    a disproportionate fraction are Most concerned about the all too evident and rapid, deterioration of The Tramp's
    ability to understand just how much damage he's done to the Nation's image as well as how he's reduced the quality
    of life for Huge numbers, who must carry much of the anxiety as the WH resident staggers around, hurling
    insults at anyone who dares express concern, that his judgement is even Less tethered to what's actually happening around our
    citizens….

  48. The NRA are ridiculously stupid, morally void and just can't see the bigger picture! More people would own guns and actually shoot them at ranges and clubs if they new there were less unbalanced gun owners out there! I shoot two/three times a week at my local range and I'm Confident that everyone there has been checked out physiologically, medically, criminally, has reached a level of skill with their firearm and will enter at least three competitions a year!
    I live in Spain………………it's not rocket science!

  49. We need to join the rest of the worlds democracy's & simply Grow up ! Background checks are a good start , but assualt rifles should be BANNED for God's sake it 2019

  50. If America wants background checks they should give unfettered access of guns to black people, there would be background checks tomorrow! Who here is also praying for the destruction of white america?
