  1. That russian kriminal head of the nra has already warned donnie he better not expand bzckground checks. This is direct warning from vladamir putin thru the nra to donnie.

  2. Background checks, good. Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens, bad. It would take decades to recover from that, the whole while we would have cops who are armed and are potential targets because people are going to want the gun that they are carrying. I am for the Second Amendment, even though I am a criminal who will never be allowed to own a firearm. But I sleep better at night knowing that my neighbor not only has a gun, but is same and responsible.

  3. Get Trump's racist aide Stephen Miller. Miller,Trump and Putin are celebrating racking our lives with chaos and smearing hate across each day. one more reason to celebrate for them. I need to get out of this country. The veil is lifted and it is what it is = ugly.

  4. Now Moscow Mitch is saying republicans will “pass something” on guns after recess. HA! He needs every NRA and russian dime he can get running against Amy. I hope I’m wrong, but my guess is the republican senate will come up with some nonsense bill democrats in the house absolutely cannot support. Then Moscow dude will blame the democrats for not supporting gun law reform….. Since the 90’s, republicans have become the party of greedy corrupt crooks that rule by fooling their base with lies and propaganda. Research it.

  5. Allow weapons every where, you don't see these white nationalist going to a police station to shoot it up do you, only soft targets are getting hit

  6. Perhaps not ban rapid fire assault weapons until some obstacles to a rapid fire assault weapon ban are removed and until there is a countervailing force to white right wing terrorism.

  7. You racist. You are finished, you are done, you are all washed up and never want to hear those gums flapping anymore.

  8. How come, this channel has never been interested in Omar's marrying her brother and is guilty of tax fraud ??? Ever thought about this ???

  9. There should be no law or policy that countermands the constitution.
    Liberals: orange man tyrant orange man needs to take away our guns.

  10. If they ban any weapons or ammunition to civilians, manufacturers should stop selling to all law enforcement agencies in protest.

  11. Corporatism (RNC) & Liberalism (DNC) have ruined the Nation-
    White America is the last piece to their power puzzle and the current target 👌

  12. The GOP will not do anything to help with gun control. The NRA has so much money in the pockets of these politicians that even if they wanted to make a change, they will not. Same goes for Trump.

  13. No one in the real world of real working Americans is pressuring for any such thing. This “pressure” is coming from the usual suspects: whining crying elitist liberals. Get f*cked.

  14. Cant wait too see the Liberal kunts faces in 2020! Hope its as entertaining as it was in 2016! Hillaryous!😂🤣

    MAGA!🇺🇸✌🏻

  15. Maybe it's time that we as citizens, do something ourselves. Boycott any business that sells these
    types of guns. Bet they would do something quickly. I'm willing to buy groceries at grocery stores and forego SuperChain stores. As soon as their bottom line starts to decrease, from loss of revenue maybe they won't
    sell them anymore.

  16. "PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT BRAGGING, ONLY EXPRESSING APPRECIATION FOR THE KIND TREATMENT THE HOSPITAL STAFF EXTENDED TO THE FIRST FAMILY!! ONLY PEOPLE SUFFERING FROM "TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME" WOULD SAY DIFFERENT! THE GOVERNOR AND MAYOR PICK THE WRONG FORUM TO BRING THIS POLITICAL ISSUE TO LIGHT, CONGRESS NEEDS TO ACT FIRST THEY ARE THE LAWMAKERS, NOT THE PRESIDENT!

  17. Who is the President? Trump needs to Tell Moscow Mitch to bring it
    Up for vote or start talking
    about obstruction charges.

  18. Ari is a complete POS. He probably takes his paycheck from Clowns In America. Ari, what are you going to do when ppl make their own guns, or the cartels traffic weapons as well as heroin? What then?

  19. Fr tho does anyone not remember Connecticut passing a red flag law in 1999, and 13 years later one of the deadliest school shootings happened in Sandy Hook? Your gun confiscation laws do not work.

    Edit: Connecticut's red flag law reduced suicides by 13%. It did NOTHING for mass shootings.
    Here's an article: https://thecrimereport.org/2018/06/05/red-flag-laws-have-an-impact-but-not-on-mass-murder/

  20. Yeah do something start teaching your children some fkn morals maybe that would be a good start folks. Stop letting the state ran schools be the only teachings your kids receive. Edify your children you are to blame! Stop pointing fingers and expecting everyone else to fix these issues. RAISE your kids!

  21. Gun reform will do nothing, twine towers in the 90s, Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11, Boston bombing, not one gun was used!!!!! And don’t kid yourself something like them will happen again! People need to be in kids lives not just plopped in front of the tv or iPad or iPhone, teach them morals and the value of all life, moms need to b moms and dads need to b dads!!!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸✝️✝️✝️✝️✝️✝️

  22. Bunch of tail Tucker's you all run and hide bad guy with an assault rifle coming through let him get his way just give the bad guy everything just like you gave away your guns give away your testosterone as well and let your false security blanket keep you warm at night and depend on others to keep you safe because somehow it's their responsibility so you could say it wasn't your fault you are just the victim

  23. Funny I haven’t heard any main stream media talking about the guy in California that just killed 4 with a knife and injured 2 others.

  24. 2nd amendment law will be infringed.. and the people who do these crimes. Death penalty long-term imprisonment.. it's over…. all The cry babies the NRA etc…Start crying coming out from the woodwork like cockroaches… It's time to smoke them out….

  25. Every firearm purchase from a FFL licensed dealer has to have a background check first, no exception.

  26. There’s about one hundred village idiots out there protesting their natural born rights
    When politicians pushing hate rhetoric and violence and American citizens are about to be punished for their actions

  27. A knife is an assault weapon if you use it to assault someone. Why are you people so stupid after spending my tax dollars on free public education? I want a dam refund.

  28. republicans are going to do something about gun violence right after they do something about open borders and arresting those who hire illegals

  29. This is not about guns, it is more on Mentally Disturbed Individuals. It is more on Families not seeking help,  maybe afraid of being SHAMED for their looney relatives.

  30. They will get rid of the illegal people in your country but they will take your 2nd amendment with it…hahahahaha!!

  31. We as Americans do not have guns to protect ourselves or our families or to go hunting.Although they are useful for all of those reasons.
    The reason that the 2nd ammendment was put into the Constitution was so that we would be able to protect ourselves against an oppressive government.As a part of a well regulated malitia,which is called.The Brotherhood of all Veterans that have ever served in any branch of the military and swore to uphold the Constitution against All enemies foriegn or domestic.Our right to bear arms shall Not be i fringed.That means.Any law.back groundchecks,cocealed carry permits,waiting periods or whatever,are illegal,unconstitutional and unenforceable.
    Because of the way we have raised our current young Americans.We have created a generation of lazy entittled children that are ignoranr of history and believe that socialism,which has been proven historically to fail.is the answer.And if,they are able to implement such a policy,they will find that you can vote your way into socialism,but you have to shoot your way out.
    So.Give up your guns.(which will nevef happen) and become slaves to a dictatorial government.

  32. Hey Democrats do something about the mass homelessness in your west coast edens. Pick up needles. Clean up the human feces..Dont just ask for more money.

  33. Assult weapons,, a word so irresponsibly used by media,, assult weapons are fully automatic weapons of military grade,, not semiautomatic weapons, do you have a 22 caliber rifle that shots every time you pull the trigger? Then according to the media it's an assult weapon. In a perfect world there would be no need for them, but look around, I don't see it, especially if you listen to the media, it's all doom and gloom.

  34. Wow, seriously? Assault weapons, designed to cause maximal carnage produce "intolerable carnage" if it's directed from civilians to civilians? Who knew??

  35. The NRA wants full compliance to the 2nd Amendment. So, send all the members to Afghanistan to insure the security of a free state. Could be the surge the US needs to win the war.

  36. This very evil and vile man cares not for anyone but himself and his money. All he spews is lies 100% of the time.
