  1. We don't do anything . Kids still locked in cages , mass shootings , death from Health issues , on and on and all we do is TALK. Are we not sick of talk when nothing gets done. MASS PROTEST is needed, NOW! enough is enough should be more than just a Slogan

  2. The NRA as an organization will stop any attempt to control firearms no matter how small. It's their main purpose for existence. They give so much money to various lawmakers for their campaigns that they literally own them. That's why all efforts have been stymied to put any checks and balances into effect. It seems to me that if we reformed lobbying, controlled campaign donations, and took the power back into the hands of the people instead of corporations and lobbyists we would finally be able to do something about controlling firearms in this country. Until that happens we will be continuing to see these horrific events happening in our cities.

  3. I live in Canada, most Canadians would welcome hard working law abiding Mexicans invading our country for jobs we won’t do , Americans who fondle guns and worship Trump aren’t welcome.

  4. The fight of two elephants. The grounds where the fight takes place suffers the most. The issue is not about Democrats or Republicans. It is about The People and positive influence. Please think twice !!!!

  5. Americans have no alternative. Go to the ballot box and vote for the people that want to change this madness. VOTE! And choose young people that belive guncontrol is duable. Not old people (bless them) with old ideas and NOT oportunists and cooperatists with an agenda echoing the donor class.

  6. I suggest everyone watch the following fascinating and disturbing YT vids on racism in the US, including info on Trump's KKK "berobed" father, Fred Trump, search for:

    Donald Trump Remarks Aid White Supremacists' Political Ambitions Rachel Maddow

    US Anti-Immigrant Policy Has Roots In Racist Eugenics Rachel Maddow

    Racism Is 'A Persistent Infection' In White American Culture Rachel Maddow

  7. You people stoke more hatred than all politicians combined. One of the recent shooters was a lefty. It's called the second amendment. Deal with it. It's not the NRA. It's about 150 million Americans.

  8. Just remember the mainstream media worked in collusion with the Hillary Clinton campaign for cheating in the primaries screwing the Sanders campaign electing Donald Trump it’s simple math MSM is at fault with Hillary the collusion is with the mainstream media the fascist mainstreamed media thank your selves for electing Trump

  9. I would love to see Trump and his 3 kids and son in law all go to prison for what they have done…I have never seen a president like this in my life…if you are not white..then you don't belong in the United States…that's is so sad..I love all of you..I DO NOT CARE WHAT COLOR Of SKIN YOU Have…When something terrible happen we all come together as ONE and that's a beautiful thing

  10. Seven dead in Chicago because of racist Democrat party politics. It looks to me the powers that be are more interested in getting a Hollywood actor off the hook than protecting it's residents.

  11. Trumptydumbty lies about everything. He'll give generalised platitudes – then drop back into his usual quagmire of racist rhetoric and immigrant bashing. Nothing will happen.

  12. Trump said the word “ the” racist cause he always says “the” when referring to others. Trump said the word infested. Racist. Guess infested is the new n word. You guys are pathetic. Trumps not racist. And hasn’t said hateful things. Yet here on msnbc there’s at a minimum of 40 hours of nothing but hate and race. Unbelievably pathetic. You guys have really lost your minds and the world laughs at you.

  13. From over here it looks like Dead people dont Vote, roll on the next one, how many guns can you pack into a Walmart trolley, Whatever, US Senate stays on holiday, #racism rules…all talk and no gun controls…..very very weird.. imo Laurie

  14. I know this sounds awful to say, but until its one of these GOP senators children or grandchildren gunned down either in school or in public nothing will change because all they care about is their pocket book!!!! I would say 90% of the GOP are taking payouts or large donations to campaigns from the NRA or Gun manufactures !!!

  15. I love how Obama constructs his sentences. But how can you read "Sentiments" as "statements" being a news reader. Ugh…

  16. 🤯 DONALD J TRUMP 🤯 Presidecy isis Crumbling and He's Poised To To Take Down Our OWN Country, to wit: https://youtu.be/HpU0nf2Wbhc

  17. Waiting for the southern poverty law center to add the Democrat party to its list of hate group's . The Democrat party is finished on its last leg and imploding right before our eyes . Trump is going to win big in 2020 you cannot stop him so give it up . Democrat's dream of illegal immigration and Godlessness as well as lawlessness has slipped away . It is not going to happen ! Trump 2020

  18. While Moscow Mitch deserves every bit of blame but if you can pressure your Senators the Senate can bypass Moscow Mitch. Why not secure your elections ? It takes virtually a full vote for new legislation to pass but it can be done. If your Senator would rather sit on their hands consider who you vote for and if they step up for you. Mass shootings can not be borne.

  19. It's true, majority of the world's developed countries have gun control and don't have gun massacres. In Australia, we can own guns, I know farmers who do, and friends who have gun licenses to shoot recreationally.

    We have good gun control so morons can't get bump stocks or 100 round magazines and mentally unstable people can't access weapons without great difficulty. Everyone here loves that, we love the fact we can go shopping, go to the cinemas, go bars or clubs and send our kids to school without being shot!

    Don't believe NRA lies such as Dems are gonna take your guns away. No one is taking them away. Gun control and reform is supported by most gun owners and the general population. You can have a safer country for you and your children, AND keep your non-military guns.

  20. Of the supporters of the nra who lay in crossfire and injury of the gunman's wrath, who is still in favor of the NRA after he just mowed you guys down? Inflection point.

  21. Gun control the go to issue for democrats to lose elections.

    People that own gun aren't going to vote have themselves prosecuted.

  22. In Mexico, it is nearly impossible to get a gun "LEGALLY"!

    What happened? Why are they armed "to the teeth"?

    Well… their GREAT FRIENDS in the U.S. will sell them guns by the boxcar load, if they choose, and deny asylum seekers that flee that friendly help.
    Dotard has made it easier to accomplish… and even with ONE PLACE IN ALL OF MEXICO to purchase a gun!

    Sure… Dotard cares. He cares about how fast they leave the face of this earth, so that white people can finally claim that they are the truest Americans.

  23. Got that racists? El Paso is 85% HISPANIC. Get over it and deal with the fact that we ARE a MELTING POT of citizens from around the world, and you aren’t going to stop it!! VOTE DEMOCRATIC 2020! 🇺🇸🌊🌊🌊

  24. Apparently you’re also struggling to read. You put “sentiments” on the screen and then said that Obama said “racist statements.” So which is it please?

  25. Man they are killing every day. What are you talking about every day. No they are not he is right and I never agree with him. Trash all trash. That man is crazy what do you mean that ORANGE GUTLESS DOG. MAN GET HIM OUT STOP PLAYING THE NEWS HAS A LOT OF POWER USE IT. YEAH AND LATINOS NEED TO WAKE UP THIS IS NOT THE PARTY FOR THEM NOR BLACKS OR JEWISH CITIZENS NO NO THIS PARTYS MASK IS OFF. STOP SAYING HE WON RUSSIA WON. GOODLUCK AND KEEP PLAYING WITH THE NEWS JUST TELL IT LIKE IT IS!!!!!!!

  26. Understand that people inherently distrust their leaders. I am a person who, likes guns (ie the mechanics the occasional use ) yet abhors gun violence and would never conceive of it yet I want to see morons excluded. I however would balk every time someone wanted to remove guns like they did here in Australia, under emotional, knee jerk and draconian action.
    You have to approach it from a reasonable and sensible, well articulated standpoint. Clearly explain how you want to limit use and the extent of those limits but explain you want to ensure sensible ownership is maintained with as little impact as necessary.

  27. msnbc fake news…watch the video if you want truth , it isn't long https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SN4h4FvOYHA

  28. We have allowed millions of illegal aliens into the country. That's an invasion. End of debate. Just enforce the laws.

  29. not defending the crap that is Moscow Mitch, but not one member of congress broke away from their "recess" during times when troops were being ambushed, the suicide rates among troops skyrocketed, national disasters, etc. These [email protected]@rds only care about their parties and not the people of this country

  30. Why in the eff do the MSM keeps inviting Sykes or any Republican pundit to talk on shows when it has been proven, especially in this few weeks that Republican policies have been racist, since 1964. Isn't Sykes a Ronald Reagan worshiper?

  31. We need to get Moscow Mitch out of office. Kentucky if you are reading this you have a great incumbent with Amy McGrath. She is the voice of reason.

  32. REPLACE DONALD TRUMP and REPUBLICANS! ~ FOX NEWS AND DONALD TRUMP GET OFF ON STOKING FEAR IN THE HEARTS OF THEIR RACIST XENOPHOBE VIEWERS and VOTERS! ~ PROMOTING RAGE AND VIOLENCE! ~ This time Donald Trump is right! We are going to "REPLACE" him with a better president! ~ A lot of good people are not understanding the nature of Republicans, White Nationalist and White Supremacist? Wow, so innocent. Here is the ugly truth. They have no shame, very much the same as Republicans and Donald Trump! Because of all the love, civil order and good opposing them, they resort to ruthless and shameless acts of disorder, violence and untruths (yes, they invented fake news, and then believe their own fake news)! They see this as their strength and a necessary evil. These xenophobic and evil extremist that Donald Trump has sided with against American ideals and our way of life today, are the ones that invented speak like "necessary evil". These are dangerous, ugly and uncompromising people, they don't care to understand you, they just want to destroy you and take what they want. They choose to fill themselves with hate and then want somebody to blame for having it. Pretty much the way Donald Trump approaches problem solving. Donald Trump does not know how to discuss matters and be a constructive problem solver, he resorts to destruction first, remove, block, deny and replaces with what he wants, regardless of who gets hurt or loses. Donald Trump is not a president, he is a tyrant and a dictator, Donald Trump is America's public enemy #1. ~ KEEP ON VOTING BLUE, IT'S OUR POWER AND STAND AGAINST FASCIST TYRANNY AND HATE! ~ REPLACE TRUMP ~ VOTE BLUE IN 2020! ~ I VOTE FOR "BETO, P. (his Can do and Sincerity)" & "MARRIANE, V.P. (her Love and Intelligence)" FOR 2020

  33. After Sandy Hook, where America decided to turn a blind eye to gunned down innocent children, there is no turning back.

  34. The shooting in the immigrant-rich town of El Paso on Saturday was among the deadliest attacks in the United States motivated by white extremism since the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 people, according to the A.D.L. About 56 percent of the extremist murders committed in the United States over the past decade were carried out by people espousing white supremacist ideology such as the great replacement, A.D.L. research shows.

  35. Greed runs the GOP more than the other party. They are on their knees for NRA, Israeli and Russian Money.

  36. There will always be a kook out there who will take the hate and racism Trump babbles about seriously and lapse into insane violence.

  37. Bring back Obama to fix this mess that this clown has done just like the other clowns before him Obama fix their mess ain't got zero credit.

  38. The deaths in El Paso and Dayton and all the way back now for years were committed by psychopathic killers who all for the most part needed placement in a State Hospital.
    Unfortunately all or most of the State Hospitals have been closed down across the Nation. They need to be re-opened.
    Many of the homeless are mentally ill and need to be placed in State Hospitals, but unfortunately they do not exist or the laws for them to get the treatment needed.

  39. They use knives, bombs and run people down with automobiles in London. There are now more murders in London than New York!

  40. if you dont take power away from NRA this problem will not go away.there are very wealthy influential people in the nra and they pave the way for polititions to help elect them.

  41. MORE LIBERAL LIES , AND MORE BRAINWASHED LIBERAL SUCKERS TO BELIEVE THESE LIES , LIBERALISM IS A TERMINAL DISEASE INFECTING AMERICA, WAKE UP , WALK AWAY OR PREPARE FOR WORLD WAR THREE

  42. Moscow Mitch is The Key. All those years compliments of Moscow Mitch, GET RID OF HIM! WORTHLESS, USELESS AND THE CAUSE OF UNNECESSARY UPHEAVAL AND EVIL

  43. The DON has   

    the  North Koreans  surrounded 

    He has Iran surrounded  

    He has NATO  surrounded 

    He has Negroes surrounded 

    He has the states surrounded 

    He has SCOTUS  surrounded  

    He  has the  Senate  and judges in his hand 

    He has China surrounded  

    And he has the  Democrats surrounded  

    And the Dims are  very nervous and lying when ever they can 

    And Russia  is watching  and they are nervous as well ????

  44. Facebook should be broke down, they are too big and full of self importance, they are greedy globalists and Zuckerberg got away with murder in front of congress.

  45. Oh… and by the way, when people do enter your country illegally en masse … that is the very definition of an invasion. What hypocrites…

  46. I'm confused
    MSNBC.NEWS

    i once upon a time was a (republican 😈) in my youth ..
    MY family thought I was a Uncle Tom and ungrateful that i voted for Ronald Reagan"
    i found out he despised PEOPLE'S of color😰.

    After Reagan 3rd year of his four-year term "
    i started doing research ON (😈) Republicans & THE Tea Party". THEY ( hate 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 US" PEOPLE'S of color with a passion)" …
    why we don't Hate" THEM & for 🤔🤔YOU that VOTED for Republicans THEY ( HATE 😈 YOU 😈 TOO ) .. !

    why ARE you selling your soul 😭 ..

    DO YOU believe THE RACISTS COP'S" won't pull YOUR "son or daughter" over & 🔫 SHOOT THEM at a TRAFFIC STOP ..😈 !!

    DO you think VOTING Republican" would stop them from hurting your family LIKE THEY DO 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 OURS. ! 😰😰😰

  47. A new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s HateWatch claims that an official of the United States State Department has been working secretly as a white nationalist organizer.

    The report has found that Matthew Q. Gebert, who works as a foreign affairs officer assigned to the Bureau of Energy Resources and has been with the department since 2013, has for years gone by the online name of “Coach Finstock,” which he has used to spread white supremacist propaganda and advocate for a whites-only country.

    The report has found that Matthew Q. Gebert, who works as a foreign affairs officer assigned to the Bureau of Energy Resources and has been with the department since 2013, has for years gone by the online name of “Coach Finstock,” which he has used to spread white supremacist propaganda and advocate for a whites-only country. “I got into this [movement] and off the conservative reservation in 2015,” he explained last year while posting on a white nationalist forum. HateWatch reached out to Gebert to ask him for comment on his racist political beliefs but has not received a response.

  48. Weather you want to call an invasion or not is was an invasion ! Laws were broke if I break a law a get caught I get to pay the price!

  49. Controversial but true: invaders cry invasion. The US, European colonists, etc have invaded many lands and abused many peoples. This is what you all have done. You should be invaded in the EXACT same manner in which you all have invaded others. It’s interesting they dish it out but scream bloody terror at the idea of BALANCED scales.

  50. At the top of every organization that we put our faith in, money in, beliefs in, etc are child molesters, rapists, organized crime bosses, secret society manipulators, and pretend states/ identity thieves.

  51. Moscow Mitch doesn’t have credibility to start. Then background checks are worthless unless HJ Res 40 (Nullifying a rule pertaining to the NICS database) is reversed. Also Psychiatrists that know of dangerous patients should be able to report somehow to the FBI without giving medical information. Unless this is addressed first, background check will not help at all.

  52. The NRA (not real Americans) is made up of people with too much money and not enough humanity. That's why they think that they deserve to have gun toys. Oh look at me I'm cool because I have a gun. I'm like so macho etc. They will lie and say that guns are a right enshrined in the constitution but the reality is that guns are a luxury that is Not needed and is not a right by any logic. If you think you need a gun for protection then you must be doing something wrong.

  53. this is why we should not have career politicians, or elections at all, for that matter. government representatives should be picked the same way municipal jurors are picked. career politicians are good at photo ops and fundraising, but they are neither incentivized nor particularly inclined to do any actual governing. they don't even understand what's expected of them

  54. Nothing will change gun laws in U S A because of 💲💲💲💲💲💲. The gun lobby has full control. It all boils down to money, which means the the government would lose loads of cash if gun ownership was curtailed

  55. Membership fees. You don't want to mess with that. But if the n.r.a. leadership had supported some gun control, like background checks, they wouldn't be where they are today. They completed blew the hand they were dealt. If you go ask an average n.r.a. citizen why they're against gun control measures, I think their attitude is that it means it will get worse later. It's like retreating and then standing your ground. You've lost ground you'll never get again. Now why is it that republicans are aligned with this? Because they keep saying they're trying to reduce federal government in our lives? The old Reagan spiel? Give control back to the states? Then it goes back to why some states want this more than others. And every time you look into it it has to do with corporate deregulation or racism. Or both.

  56. Mainstream media and Democrats playing the race card and the Oppression Olympics didn’t work for you in 2016 what makes you think it will work again in 2020

  57. If you are against guns why don't you simply remove these from the shops? Why don't you DO something? You only talk. You only have to read aloud the Second Amendment. There is nothing there that allows people to have guns outside of a Militia. Where are the militia's with these shootouts? Smash the stores that sell AK47's. Arrest the board of the NRA. Confiscate their money bags.

  58. Trump will always say whatever his audience wants to hear and he will say it in a way that will put him on top of the people present. That is how he wins.

  59. 50% of the Americans lives in 1787 instead of 2019. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." There is nothing there that allows people to have guns outside of a Militia needed to control a bad government.

  60. The only way the Dems will defeat the Republicans is to lower the taxes to zero and to provide every citizen with an AK47 automatic assault gun and then withdraw and let the Republicans handle the mess. Then it is the Republicans who need to raise taxes and to impose gun control. There is no other way. The Dems are played by the Reps like a football. It is called propaganda and misinformation & disinformation campaigns. http://thephilosopherofculture.blogspot.com/2018/12/the-sources-for-human-manipulation.html

  61. White House is a fortress now..can't see what they are doing in there.. can't see the alarming level of dysfunction.. well, there was that moment when Mulvaney sneezed..

  62. As the old saying goes "if you build it they will come". If you build hate and fear among monkeys they become hateful and fearful.
