  1. Let me see if I understand, the problem is someone "scoring points"???? really, that's Mitch concern???? poor country you are!!!

  2. The image of Trump with a baby, reminds me of photographs of Dr Mengele sharing a joke with one of his torture victims.

  3. If you want to get the wording about assault weapons right, take a good look at the patents. They are available to the public, and they are rigorously worded to stand up in court. A ban on assault weapons is something that can happen.

  4. Moscow Mitch,NRA,Trump and some of the Senate all have in common is they receive money from Russia. Because of Trump other Agency. Trump put unqualified people in positions He put corrupt people in high position. we are no long USA. Trump is not our President, his the Dictator of America.

  5. YES HE IS. Moscow Mitch is letting time pass so something else happens that takes attention away from gun control. Simple…. right?

  6. I wonder how long it will be before the republicans are blaming the people who got killed or the family’s that speak out about guns- watch this place

  7. It's nice that you asked Congress to come back. But guess what burning even though you're an independent and the Democrats if you guys really believed in solving this gun issue. You would have shut down the government not approved any budget not approved any legislation not approved any judges not approved anything until there was action regarding the Second Amendment and gun issues. Guess what I guarantee if the Republicans believed and solving this gun issue or whatever it is they would shut down the government until they got what they wanted regardless of whether they were in the majority or minority. So don't act all helpless and don't act like you can't do anything you could have done something but it's business as usual for you and you just have fake outrage. By the way guess what any of these laws it would be disproportionately used against black people and Conner and all these other School shooters would still go around and be killing people with the guns like they normally do. Just like the marijuana laws all the marijuana laws of the same but everyone knows that the laws were used against black people for the same issue 80% more than white citizens. So why wouldn't it be the same for any red flag red flag law or any other law regarding gun control.?

  8. Moscow Mitch JUST RECEIVED 1.6 Million from the NRA. You would stall too if you were greedy as this little 'turtle'. Moscow Mitch tsk, tsk, tsk
    Who are the 11% in the Dems who oppose? and 38% Repubs? shame on you.

  9. Expect Mitch to do NOTHING! He is too paralyzed with FEAR. Protect yourself and shop online. It appears that sensible gun legislation will NOT be passed to protect you and your family.

  10. Some higher up republicans,(mitch mcConnell) who actually despise trump, chose to strategically support him knowing trump would take hold of the world's attention with his embarrassing and criminal behavior. Which would take the spotlight off of mcconnell's and others allowing them to continue there dealings to help themselves and their supporters (1%ers), removing nearly all media coverage from their far right, lifelong financial supporters under intense media scruttany, like the koch bros. and big pharma. They get what they want and trump, the dancing monkey, gets all the attention 'til the people come together and get rid of the distraction.

  11. The love for guns is the love for violence and wars. Only hate and pure evilnes make people think about killing anybody.

  12. Ask deployabe Mocow McConnell why he did not put the HR bill on background checks for a vote and therefore would have started discussions. Vote this man OUT OF OFFICE. The GOP is the PARTY of ASSAULT

  13. The MONEY has to come out of Government. NRA, Big PHARMA, Big Oil are running the country and the President is the lap dog….or puppet figurehead. The NRA, Big Pharma, Big Oil can exist but no longer run the country as they have to follow the RULES SET DOWN BY THE GOVERNMENT. [otherwise the U.S. is no better than those 3rd world countries that are ungoverned.] The people are getting FORKED.
    Vote Bernie 2020

  14. Moscow Mitch McConnell

    Is a lapdog for.Russia he will do nothing to stop killings of brown and black skinned people

    For Moscow Mitch McConnell it's one less brown skinned Hispanic or one less black skinned person we whites have to worry about.

    Moscow Mitch McConnell is a Russian sympathizer, he pushes for a Russian
    oligarch to own a Russian business on American soil,
    But will not push for.assault weapons to be outlawed.
    Banned in America.

    Moscow Mitch McConnell
    Also have blood on his.hand,
    He is stalling, Moscow Mitch McConnell or
    Kremlin don j trump will pretend they are doing something in fact they are runing the clock down

    The good.news they will both be gone.

    The trump swamp
    Steve miller, Kelly Anne
    corrupt AG Barr

    Moscow Mitch McConnell Russia sympathizer.

    The trump swamp must go
    The trump swamp must go

  15. Mitch McConnel has absolutely NO intentions of doing ANYTHING about gun laws. He's only providing lip service as he ALWAYS has!!!

  16. Massacred Mitch needs to be hammered and sickled with the hard evidence until the coward in a half-shell is forced in self-defense to act.

  17. If the guns are turned at Republican politicians and the trigger pulled, I have no doubt the law would change the very next day. Nothing changes if it doesn't affect them. Wasting time and money even having them there in the senate. Democratic countries in the commonwealth for example, would have the Governor Generals dissolve their Govts by now if they acted the way this pack of feral boars in the U.S do.
    Talk about it all the time after a mass domestic terrorist attack and years later, Republikkkunts are still singing their Hakuna Matatas stalling and offering thoughts and prayers. You're a fkn disaster America. The only thing that's changed has been the NRAs dwindling financial status in 15 years – yet still they hold the country to ransom. Maybe they could benefit from having their own products of advocacy turned on them too.

  18. NEWS MEDIA AND CONGRESS: why isn't there talk and investigations on the makers of guns and the stockholders profitting from millions of guns made yearly, McConnell probably one of the richest of them.

  19. VOTE BLUE NO MATTER WHO. OUR COUNTRY IS AT STAKE. THE REPUBLICANS ARE ALLOWING THE RUSSIANS TO CONQUER US FROM WITHIN

  20. The government is corrupt and incompetent why should they have the power to do anything let alone regulate firearms. They can't even balance a check book but they think they are going to be able to stop mass shootings. I'm pretty sure balancing a budget is easier than stopping a complex issue like gun deaths in the US.
    Red flag laws violate due process. The government shouldn't be able to say your guilty until you prove your innocent. And the government shouldn't be able to have a judge decided to take your property without any evidence more than he said she said. You don't even have the ability to face your accuser before the government just shows up at you door.

  21. He's one of the pedofiles that want Jeffrey Epstein dead. .
    Get rid of those small sized penisses out the office and let the gentlemen run it.

  22. I’d bet anything that if one of those Mega-Church’s that are hardcore Trump got shot up there would be a ban in a week, cause god forbid that their supporters get killed

  23. I don't understand why honest and good people are losing. We have a constitutional right so we need to educate our political representative on the second amendment for protection of liberty from foreign and domestic government.

  24. It's not what everybody wants. As heartless as it is. The rights of the living supersede, the tears for the dead. Stop trying to take our liberty, or you are forcing rebellion.

  25. How are assault weapons really any different than any other semi automatic weapon. Isnt it essentially just an aesthetics ban?

  26. Thoughts and prayers and after those empty words NOTHING will happen, moscow Mitch needs the NRA millions to get re-elected

  27. He’s worried about one side “scoring points” over this? So how many points does a side score for each American body with a bullet in it McConnell? Or maybe is it that if it’s a dead Republican is one point for the Democrats and if it’s a dead body of a Democrat then it’s a point for Republicans? Just trying to figure out what the score is, cause to me it appears that the losing team is always the citizens of this country.

  28. Moscow Mitch loves the Russian money laundered through the NRA. unacceptable is just pass something. We need to pass restrictions on assault/military type weapons.

  29. Any republican supporting the disarming of American citizens should be immediately recalled, removed from office, and the party permanently. Let them go join the brainwashed and docile dems!

  30. Moscow Mitch, the only person that can frown AND smile at the same time while impersonating a geriatric tortoise.

  31. Moscow mitch working for someone but it isn’t for the benefit of the whole country and it is certainly against most Americans

  32. Mitch McConnell betrayed all the Americans, in the cyber-war with Russia, Iran, etc.
    And then he betrayed all the kids and their parents.
    He should be fired.

  33. No one man should have the power to block legislation because of his corrupt motives, to the people that keep voting the likes of McConnell ect into office you and them are standing squarely behind these mass murderers by your actions!

  34. More too-clever-by-half obfuscation from the obstructer/destructer-in-chief?

    A "conservative" like McConnell thinks an airplane gains power by not moving through air.

  35. I'm not sure what makes a rifle an assault weapon. I have a rifle that would look scary to non gun owners. Any gun can be modified, are you going to ban handguns also? The gun doesn't fire without someone to fire it. The gun isn't the issue, the person with psychological issues are the problem.

  36. Moscow Mitch will not do anything about guns because his supporters all want to keep their weapons of war ! Vote Moscow Mitch out in 2020 !!

  37. no no no no no no no. no no Eugene Robinson not even hand gun f######ck the bra again dissolve the bra dissolve it trump does not bless only God can bless duh duhduh duh duh Gop senators you're white washed sepulchre you're the brood of viper. God does not not not not approve of you. your father is the Devil and you want to do his will plain and simple

  38. in india a few years back there were 2 riots over old holy sites , over 2 million people died in riots on a week end , beaten to death with sticks . if US gun death reach 1 million for a weekend is still 1/2 half that sea of blood , did the UN out law wood ? you don't want self defense . your in the wrong nation , go , india is peaceful no guns .. when people murder people with rocks , out law rocks ? in there wisdom there are foolish

  39. People that complain that background checks wouldn't have made a difference in the shooting don't understand that there's never going to be a one solution to this problem. Gun ownership needs to be heavily regulated. Regulation will need to include background checks along with many many other forms of regulation. This is how it works in Australia and now NZ. It's not perfect in these countries but it's a great start.

  40. Look at the body count Mitch is responsible for working for the NRA and making millions in bribe money. Mitch is sub post to work for the people not the NRA. he should be gone.

  41. What BS, Canada bans assault type weapons based on the barrel and stock length, i.e. too concealable, and bans any magazine with a capacity of more than 10 rounds. Simple to specify and it limits firepower.

  42. Moscow Mitch always stalls…except for eradicating medical care or tax cuts for himself and the top 1%. The rest of us can just walk in front of bullets, get sent home from ER because we cannot afford surgeries or other medical care, choose to be homeless or do without meds or food. So stall away …be proud, Mr. Moscow Mitch.

  43. So where is the outrage from the NRA and hard core right gun owners over these new proposals?… now trump is pushing for limits on 1st amendment … isn't that funny? …. turns out that terrible Obama guy has orange hair and not a afro…

  44. The great state of Kentucky I beg you vote him out. He doesn't care about you or Kentucky. Moscow Mitch should go back Moscow along with his daddy trump. Please Kentucky vote him out

  45. Old mitch Mitch say better you than me. His old bones don't heal to fast. Mitch say ok I do what you want. Poor man he got his self in a ring of fire.

  46. INEZ Qtaish will never sign no contract for settlement or compromise ,Inez Qtaish is taking my Illinois civil cases to trial and let the jury decide, Inez Qtaish will not stop, the truth will be reveal publicly about what happened in inez Qtaish Illinois worker's compensation case and the truth will be reveal publicly about what happened in inez Qtaish Illinois civil cases. the truth will be reveal publicly with nothing redacted so all people will know the truth about inez Qtaish and clear my name.
