  1. All Ameriklan children should be issued machine guns in kindergarten to protect themseles from excessive homework (especially spelling and grammar) as witnessed by their comments.

  2. Blacks who are for these laws are INSANE! Guess who are the main ones these laws will be enforced against? It won’t be white folks who won’t give up their guns it will be US! Then we will Carolina about how racist the laws are because of how they are being applied. You need to wake up.

  3. The world laughs at the 100s of shootings by inbred ameriklans daily in Trumpistan. Ameriklans need better aim they waste a lot of ammo. No mass shootings yet today but 2 yesterday. 261 so far this year https://www.gunviolencearchive.org/reports/mass-shooting

  4. Sorry to all the gun nuts but the only way to ensure that crazy people don't have access to guns is to take them away. No red flag law will be able to ensure public safety.

  5. It's depressing that we've actually hit the point where I'm tired of listening to these politicians saying "We need to stop with talking points". Nowadays, it's becoming the newest repetitive anthem for every single politician that won't do anything, further shading the ongoing declination of action by republicans as more of a grey area. Don't ever forget who's doing nothing on guns, again. Ignore the republicans that say we need to have bipartisan support for some of these gun and background check bills that have already passed the House of Representatives. They're the ones that are refusing to act after every single mass shooting. Bipartisanship is dying.

  6. Democrats have already taken action on passing gun legislation several months ago. Lets not forget that Americans. The problem is the Republicans are stonewalling the progress.

  7. Red flag laws, universal background checks, high capacity magazine ban AND assault weapons ban are needed. Another thing that's needed, thorough background checks and mental health exams for presidential candidates. If the head of the CIA needs a background check for security clearance, the president should too.

  8. Trump’s election has been the single most event to bring the deep state/shadow government/cabal puppets out of the shadows. They can easily be identified because they’re the ones whining the loudest about anything Trump does. Be it politicians or news media or business “leaders” or entertainers. Their noise level is commiserate with how much they have to lose if their crimes are exposed to the public and prosecuted in court.

  9. MSNBCCCP feed piled with really crap stories today. They didn't get their 4A.M. taking points today. The CIA…their puppet handlers have been dismantled!!!
    Read any good Q posts lately???
    WWG1WGA!!!!!!!

  10. Pretty simple: you can't outlaw mental illness, but you can outlaw weapons of war, which is why no other developed nation has this problem (arguably though citizens in other developed nations are more sane, humane, and adult than Americans and always have been).

  11. To Late ,, Philly was caused by a Revolving Door DA that releases Violent Criminals , Parkland was caused by DEMS not wanting to get bad stats due to Violent Youths , and in this and many other cases the DEMS blamed a Tool rather then the Mentally ill persons that were causing the crimes

  12. Bypass all gun laws by having and carrying a Jo staff as a weapon. Now Dems go to your corner and chew on that.

  13. The simple fact is the second amendment is not going anywhere. You want our firearms come and take them. There are millions of firearm owners in this country and 98.9% of firearm owners will not be heading in any firearms to the government. Benjamin Franklin once said, Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

  14. It's NOT complicated. All the dems have to do is to call it the "Blue Lives Matter Law". Cops have to fight like soldiers in a war against their fellow citizens with military style guns with large capacity magazines and die on the streets. That's NOT the job they signed up for.

  15. There is a deep rooted agenda to disarm free people. And the motivations behind are not to save lives or keep people safe. If you truly believe their are honest and good intentions behind the laws being proposed, then tell me when has being disarmed ever gone well for free citizens?

  16. While they're talking about gun control millions of Americans are buying more guns and ammunition. Once the gun owners of America start to March down the streets with their rifles on their backs it's going to be game over for these tyrants. They will have to bring in the United Nations to fight us. No red-blooded American soldier will fight they're American brothers and sisters.

  17. The crazy Democrats want to open our borders and take our guns away at the same time smh so how are we supposed to protect our homes and property from the illegal immigrants that hop over the fence with their guns? Their are millions of undocumented people who don't have to follow our laws and they have their guns and the police protect them

  18. Gun control buildings don't work. They are the death traps. End them. People should have the right to self protect.

  19. Funny how reps who take an oath to "protect and defend" the Constitution are so quick to infringe on the Constitutional rights of the citizens. These wannabe tyrants who know "what's best" for the rest of us are the reason the 2nd Amendment was created. Meanwhile THEY are protected in DC by men with fully automatic sub machine guns.

  20. 6:46 “If somebody is worried about someone harming themselves or others they can take the gun away” and still protect due process” ????????????????????? How is that due process ??????

  21. It's not the gun that pulls the trigger, it's the person who should not have access to the gun that pulls the trigger. Universal background checks. Red Flag Check. Sensible gun legislation and remove the assault weapons and high capacity magazines.

  22. NRA: the rest of us are tired of your members shooting at us. How many must die so that you get to keep your murderous toys?

  23. Pot calling the kettle black for Trump – he's got no business talking about mental illness when he himself is such a depraved and vapid sociopath.

  24. I'm sceptical about the red flag laws. I think that it would be misused to keep guns away from Africans and Mexicans. The violations could result in longer jail sentences than those of the crack wars.

  25. Trump is right, his mental illness problems are the reason America is chaotic and lost in a deep hole of lies, treachery, sexual deprivation, racism and mass killings.

  26. Wrong Wrong Wrong !!!!!!!!!!!! Congress ought take the same stance that insurance companies take toward new young male drivers, that is, either denying them or charging them through the nose for insurance to drive a car. In the case of Congress legislating gun control laws, the problem lies principally with YOUNG WHITE MALE SHOOTERS, in which case, deny THEM access to guns until the age of 25 or even better, age 35, to give them time for their emotions to mature. Finding the mentally ill, ahem, angry, part of the population will never work, for this angry, socially connected portion of the population tuning into DT stoking hatred and very suggestively implying that brown people, blacks, immigrants or Democrats, etc., should be shot is not falling on deaf ears. Congress ought pass the very popular background checks legislation, but take it one step safer by limiting gun ownership to YOUNG WHITE MALES until they are sufficiently mature.
