The NRA’s Global Impact | Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj | Netflix


All right. Tonight, I want to talk 
about the National Rifle Association. You know the NRA,
the only time they’re quiet is whenever we have a national moment
of silence. And if you haven’t been watching the news,
they’re currently in total chaos. America’s most prominent
gun rights organization, with one of the nation’s most powerful 
lobbying arms, is in turmoil. The NRA is facing a major shakeup  after its current president, Oliver North,
announced he would be stepping down and not returning for a second term. North reportedly attempted 
to oust Wayne LaPierre. Basically, Wayne LaPierre,
their longtime chief executive, was beefing 
with their president Oliver North. Last month, LaPierre accused North 
of trying to extort him over financial wrongdoing, and LaPierre was right to worry
because North had the receipts, and they show that LaPierre
was burning through money like it was a rookie contract. Including almost 40 grand for clothes
on a single day, 18 grand for a car and driver in Europe, and $13,800 in rent payments 
for a college intern. That’s right. Wayne LaPierre, who’s almost 70,
tried to expense five grand a month for a twentysomething female intern,
and I know… we’re all thinking the same thing. Wayne LaPierre has a heart of gold. Don’t laugh. Her summer housing didn’t work out,
and she needed a place to stay. We need more people like Wayne LaPierre. This internal feud resulted in
Oliver North stepping down as president. But that was just the beginning 
of the NRA’s problems. The New York Attorney General is currently investigating whether
the NRA has violated their status as a nonprofit,
and I know you’re like, “Wait… The NRA is a non-profit?” That’s like finding out Guantanamo Bay 
was built by Habitat for Humanity. The guard would be like, 
“That rectal feeding tube is actually made out 
of Jimmy Carter’s old garden hose. So you respect it.” Now, all this turmoil came to a head at the NRA’s annual convention last month. But while everybody was obsessing over 
the NRA meltdown, something else was going down. This is a Fox News Alert. President Trump making moves 
to pull the U.S.  out of an international arms trade treaty, something the NRA has wanted 
for a very long time. Trump pulled the U.S. out 
of the Arms Trade Treaty, which was a UN resolution Obama signed 
in 2013 to help prevent the use of arms 
for war crimes and human rights abuses.
But don’t take it from me, take it from the host 
of my dad’s favorite TV show. The UN Arms Trade Treaty  could ask signatories not to export
weapons to groups or states which could use these weapons 
in crimes against humanity. Simple enough. Don’t send arms to Syria 
or Sudan or North Korea. Who could object to this? “Who could object to this?”
Well, Bashar al-Assad, Kim Jong-un, and obviously, Terry Gross. Terry Gross has been running guns 
into Darfur for decades. It makes total sense
when you think about it. Look, she does one interview a day,
and she’s somehow always on “vacation.” Come on, Terry. If you’re not going to stop running guns, then at least stop letting Dave Davies
fill in for you. You’re hurting people. The NRA hates the UN Arms Trade Treaty
because they think it will lead to gun control 
in the United States. That’s basically how they feel 
about everything the UN does. Which you can tell from
this super-emo video they made. The UN’s agenda?
To impose its own standard of freedom. Global gun prohibition. A bronze statue of a twisted gun 
outside UN headquarters stands as testimony to its agenda 
and its determination to fulfill it. The NRA is obsessed
with this gun that got its tubes tied. It’s known as “The Knotted Gun,” and it is a universal symbol 
for non-violence, and the NRA saw that and was like,
“Non-violence? Over my dead body.” The NRA has official consulting status
with the UN, which is bizarre. How could the NRA possibly be helpful 
at the UN? Think about it, like,
Zambia comes in, they’re like, “We need mosquito nets.” And they’re like,
“Have you tried shooting the mosquitoes? You have the right 
to shoot the mosquitoes.” The NRA has been opposing 
the Arms Trade Treaty for years. There is extremely strong opposition 
to this treaty in the United States. All based on the same objection: Infringement on 
the constitutional freedom of American gun owners. We are not gonna submit American freedoms  to these globalist vultures. Is this how Wayne LaPierre
describes nature? He’s like, “You got your globalist vultures,
your libtard geckos, and your cuck trees. It’s disgusting.” But just last month, 
Trump gave the NRA what they wanted. We’re taking our signature back. They all want the pen.
Can you believe these people? Should I give it to ’em? Famous pen. Just imagine all the manifestos that are going to be written 
with that pen. This is why we can’t be 
touchdown dancing  all over the NRA civil war. Pulling out of the Arms Trade Treaty was a significant win for them 
on an international scale. And that’s what I want
to focus on tonight, the global impact of the NRA. Now, I know that sounds strange. When you think of the NRA, 
you think of American gun rights, the Second Amendment, cowboy cosplay, gun shows. The easier it is for people
in other countries to buy guns, the better it is for American gun makers
who want to do business in those places. So the NRA has been influencing 
gun policy, exporting gun culture, and contributing to gun violence 
around the world. The NRA has actually been called 
the “spiritual godfather” of foreign gun groups, 
which I know sounds like a gangster movie starring Deepak Chopra. 
But the NRA… also has direct financial ties 
to foreign gun companies,  some of their biggest donors
are international gun manufacturers like Beretta and Glock, who have each donated 
at least a million dollars to the NRA, which makes them members 
of an exclusive donors club called… “The Golden Ring of Freedom,” where one of the perks 
is a special jacket. When I put the gold jacket on, I’ll feel the respect of 1,600 employees. It is a great honor. The NRA gave Brenda and I gold jackets, because we give them a lot of money. You don’t need the NRA 
to get an ugly, overpriced jacket. Just order one from Canada Goose. I own one. It’s ugly as fuck. Objectively. Okay? By the way, they ripped this jacket straight 
from the NFL Hall of Fame, which makes total sense
if you think about it. Football and guns have both given 
high schoolers brain trauma. Now, another reason the NRA… is working abroad is that they seem to think that 
gun control anywhere is a threat to gun rights everywhere.
Take Australia. The NRA has tried to repeatedly weaken
Australia’s strict gun laws, including the ones passed 
after a mass shooting in 1996, called the Port Arthur Massacre. Look what happened to Australia. When they had a huge shooting 
in Port Arthur, the conservative government banned
assault weapons. For the next couple of decades, 
there’s been not even one single mass shooting in Australia. And the NRA was like, “What kind of sick world
are we living in? We need to help these people get guns.” And then they got a call from a group 
in Australia called One Nation. Now, separately… those words don’t seem racist. But when you put them together, they do. Right? It’s like America, First. Duck, Dynasty. Roseanne. Just Roseanne. One Nation is a right-wing
Nationalist Party, and this is their co-founder
Pauline Hanson. Whoa! Hey, take it easy, Pauline. Asians don’t swamp, we infiltrate.
There’s a difference. Last year, some members of One Nation came
to America to meet with the NRA,
except one of them wasn’t a member. He was an undercover journalist 
and guess which one. Yeah. Look at him! No Australian is that Australian. What is wrong with this guy?
He could have just worn a suit,  but he just went to a store and he’s like,
“Get me all the khaki money can buy. Let me look like 
Crocodile motherfucking Dundee… while I go undercover.” Now, this undercover journalist, secretly recorded the One Nation members
who came to America. The fake activist then led
One Nation Chief of Staff James Ashby and Queensland senate candidate
Steve Dickson on a trip to America  to seek donations from the U.S. gun lobby. And while they were there, the NRA gave them talking points, including what to say
in response to a mass shooting. Lars Dalseide is one of the NRA’s
senior media liaison officers. If another mass shooting happens
in Australia, he advises One Nation 
to smear supporters of gun control by accusing them 
of exploiting the tragedy. Yeah. Mm-hmm. That guy is getting a lesson 
on how to spin the murder of children, and he’s reacting like he just heard 
“Uptown Funk” for the first time. He’s like, “I love that. What is this?” When that clip hit the internet, 
One Nation reps faced a lot of backlash,  but they had an airtight response. I’ll be the first to admit, 
we’d arrived in America, we’d got on the sauce, 
we’d had a few drinks, and that’s where those discussions
took place. They were on the sauce. I can’t tell if they came to America 
to meet the NRA  or have the best summer of their lives 
before they go to college. You know what? It’s fine. They apologized. They lived, they learned. But then, a month later… more footage leaked. A salacious strip club video 
has brought down  one of Pauline Hanson’s 
most trusted senate candidates. As secret footage of a One Nation 
Queensland Senate candidate Steve Dickson emerged from the shadows to spotlight a hands-on, 
booze-fueled September night out at a seedy Washington strip club. All right. That’s gross. But how much did they trust khaki guy? They’re like… “Hey, man. Like, why isn’t Dave getting
any lap dances?  And why is his armpit blinking?” 
They’re like, “Whatever. He’s our friend. We trust him.” No one has been able 
to roll back Australia’s gun laws. So, the NRA is trying to make sure 
nobody else pulls an Australia, which hasn’t been easy. Especially in New Zealand
after the Christchurch shooting. Six days. That’s how long it’s been 
since the deadly mosque shooting in New Zealand which took 
the lives of 50 innocent people,  and it took just six days 
for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to announce a nationwide ban on all military-style,
semi-automatic weapons. I can tell you one thing right now, 
our gun laws will change. As an American, that’s incredible 
and disheartening at the same time. It’s like being Elon Musk 
and seeing someone move any of their facial muscles. He’s like, “Wait, you can just do that?” As New Zealand mourned, 
the NRA kicked into gear. You want to know the difference between
the anti-gun left and us here at NRATV? They call New Zealand’s all out gun ban
of semi-automatic rifles, quote “What leadership looks like.” We call it what tyranny looks like. But gun advocates 
didn’t just criticize the prime minister. The world’s most powerful gun lobby group,
the NRA, has offered its help and support to gun enthusiasts here. “Oh, yes. I think so.” I love the way she said that, 
that was like the nicest way to say fuck off. Out of curiosity… have we tried telling the NRA
to just bugger off? We should just do that. One member of New Zealand’s parliament
was even sent material that appeared to be sourced directly 
from the NRA, accusing her of trying to take away
their Second Amendment rights to own guns. The only problem is… New Zealand doesn’t have
a Second Amendment… or the right to own guns. They just think every country 
has the right to own guns, including Africa, because they probably 
think Africa is a country. The NRA was more effective in Brazil, where gun violence has been rampant.
In 2005, Brazil had about 36,000 gun deaths, which was even more 
than the United States. That year, Brazil held a voter referendum to ban the sales of guns
and ammunition to citizens. So a pro-gun group reached out to the NRA
for help and the NRA sent a lobbyist. Now, the NRA denies funding 
any Brazilian pro-gun groups, but the NRA’s messaging 
still made it into Brazilian ads. Now, you guys probably know 
NRA’s talking point. Keep your hands of our guns 
and our freedom. No, not that one. The other one. The only thing that stops a bad guy 
with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Okay, we constantly hear about good guys
with guns and during the referendum, this ad… coincidentally ran in Brazil. They talk about disarmament… but they forgot to tell the criminals. They want to take away the good guns. But they’ll leave the bad guns alone. This won’t end well. Disarming the citizens 
is not the solution. Vote against prohibition. Vote one. Vote no. That’s insane. How did they get Ethan Hawke 
for that role? The NRA keeps trying to convince people 
in other countries  that they have a right to own guns, but just like New Zealand, Brazil doesn’t 
have the right to bear arms. The gun lobby just made it up. But it looks like these ads 
were still effective. Polls taken before the vote on the gun ban
show that 80% of Brazilians were in favor of greater gun control,
but the law was defeated two to one. Brazil didn’t pass gun control and now, their current president,
Jair Bolsonaro, is rolling back what little gun control Brazil does have. Brazil’s far-right 
President Jair Bolsonaro is reversing earlier strict regulations that essentially prevented civilians 
from bearing firearms. In order to guarantee the citizens 
this legitimate right of defense, I, as president, will use this weapon. Why are these guys obsessed with pens? Like, at least Trump had a Sharpie. Bolsonaro’s got a classic Bic.
Come on, man. Get a pen that doesn’t have 
a bank chain on it. You can get that shit at Wells Fargo. Bolsonaro signed that legislation 
five months ago, and he signed another executive order 
easing gun rules earlier this month. Bolsonaro loves the NRA
and so does his son. Bolsonaro, as well as his son
who was involved in the campaign  have really made a big sticking point 
of their fandom, really, of the NRA. He has all these gun replicas
on the walls, NRA signs. What’s up, guys? I’m here in the U.S.A. As you can see, a lot of guns. This is the famous AR-15, the devil’s gun, AK-47, the terrorist gun, a 50,  people call it a 50, 
you can bring down a plane with it. I like how “bringing down a plane” 
is his sales pitch for this gun. He’s like, “This baby can do everything.
It can stop all the worst people, murderers, intruders, Delta.” Like, why is he so obsessed with guns? Have you guys ever noticed this?
Like, people who are into guns, are really into guns. They’re like swords. Nobody has one sword. You either have zero swords, or so many swords 
that your kids stop bringing friends over. There’s no middle ground. The NRA’s influence is all over the world:
Brazil, Australia, New Zealand. But they don’t just coach 
foreign gun groups, they help spread guns abroad 
without even leaving the United States. For the last 50 years, the NRA’s U.S. agenda
has been about passing laws  that make it easier to buy guns, own guns, and use guns. You’ve probably heard about these laws:
concealed carry, preemption laws, and stand your ground,
which came in the national conversation after George Zimmerman 
gunned down Trayvon Martin. Now, I just want to take a quick beat 
to give you guys an update on what George Zimmerman has been up to,
because it is fucking crazy. After he got acquitted for murder, he became a painter. He sold a painting 
for over a hundred grand. He tried to auction off the gun
he killed Trayvon Martin with. He failed to sell the gun, tried again, failed again, tried a third time, succeeded.
How? I don’t know. That same year, got divorced, so… he’s officially on the market. He’s like, “Look, I’m a multihyphenate, I’m a killer, auctioneer, racist,
part-time horrible artist, full-time piece of shit, no hookups.
I’m looking for love.” Now, that’d be a great Tinder profile
if he hadn’t gotten banned from Tinder. Oh, by the way, he also challenged DMX to a boxing match. DMX seems pretty chill
about the whole thing, telling TMZ… Now… I know you’re shocked by that,
but you know who’s not shocked by that? Anyone who knows anything about DMX. They’re just like, 
“Damn, DMX is getting soft.” All the gun laws the NRA supports encourage the spread of guns 
in the U.S., but those guns are also 
making their way south to Mexico. Mexico points the finger at the U.S. for not doing enough to prevent 
an estimated 213,000 firearms from being smuggled into the country. The impact of those guns is felt
across Mexico. The murder rate this year is expected
to surpass that of 2017 with more than 30,000 killings. 30,000 killings. And what makes that stat 
even more shocking is that Mexico only has one gun store
in the entire country. I’m serious. We drive into this open military 
base and pull up right in front of Mexico’s one and only gun store, what’s formerly known as the Directorate 
of Arms and Munitions Sales. If they have one gun store, is it like Trader Joe’s on a Saturday 
all the time? Like, you go in and it’s just like,
“Aw, shit. I was just trying to get a Glock
and avocados, but this is nonsense.” It’s like, “Yeah, come back on a Tuesday,
it’s better on a Tuesday.” “All right, 
I’ll come during my lunch break.” Between 2009 and 2014, 70% of traceable guns seized in Mexico
came from the U.S., and it’s honestly impressive
that we could get that stat because the NRA has lobbied
to kill universal background checks and funding for tracking gun crimes. I mean, come on. America is never going to track guns. The only way we’d ever start
tracking guns is if they converted to Islam, that’s it. And on top of that, the Trump administration 
has proposed something called the Arms Transfer Initiative,  which can make it easier 
for U.S. companies to export guns and harder for lawmakers 
to get data on gun sales. And as someone 
who loves using government data to make 400 different graphs a week, I’m personally upset by this. So not only… could we have less information 
on where the guns are going, we also won’t always know
who the guns are going to, because the NRA has also fought to keep
straw purchasing laws weak. Straw purchasing is when
you can’t legally buy a gun  so you get someone else to buy it for you. You know, the same way 
teenagers get Four Loko. Straw purchasing is one of the main ways
criminals acquire firearms. And it’s something 
the NRA has fought for years. This gun was bought by two
U.S. citizens on behalf of a Mexican cartel. The investigation revealed 
a whole straw purchasing network, but their charge was based on lying 
on the paperwork. So what you’re prosecuting them for
is the fact that they filled in the form wrongly? Correct. There is currently 
no firearms trafficking statute that we can prosecute someone for. It doesn’t stop there. A huge number of recovered weapons 
in Central America can be traced back to the United States. 29% of guns in Guatemala, 46% of guns in Honduras 
and 49% in El Salvador. That’s half of the traceable gun supply
coming from America. And the gun violence in Central America 
is fueling the migrant crisis. Many immigrants say they’re fleeing 
gang violence in their home countries. Rival gangs like MS-13
and the 18th Street gang  kill thousands per year. This 16 year old fled 
with her two-year-old son. “It was one of the toughest decisions 
of my life,” she said. “But I’m afraid for my son
because of the violence and gangs here, so I had to try.” That’s heart-wrenching. And you would think 
that most people would understand that. But the NRA isn’t most people. The immigration invasion is real. These people are coming here 
to do harm to Americans. They dismember, 
they mutilate, they torture. Until you can prove to me 
that their borders are closed, you know, and that no one’s coming across 
with the intent to do harm or weapons, don’t talk to us about gun control. But we have to talk about gun control. The NRA has had undue influence 
on American politics for the last 50 years. But if the New York AG’s investigation
finds that the NRA can’t call themselves a nonprofit, that wouldn’t just hurt their bottom line. We would finally be recognizing 
the NRA for what they are: a political organization
with global influence. But that’s just a hope. As it stands, the NRA’s domestic push 
for loose gun laws is helping weapons flow to Central America,
which is contributing to violence, which is causing people
to flee that violence and seek asylum in the U.S., which the NRA is using 
to sell looser gun laws, and this cycle shows no signs of stopping. Look, the NRA clearly loves guns. Right? They obviously want 
to spread guns internationally, and yet, they are panicking about
immigrants invading with those guns. But maybe… those immigrants aren’t invading. Maybe, they’re just returning those guns 
to sender.

  1. Even though US is a developed nation, it’s a pity to see system helpless. US should take responsibility in alleviating their condition, instead of influencibg them for gun violence.
    But i also don’t trust Mr minaj facts. He is a good influncer, but it can dangerous if you don’t for sure about other countries dynamic.
    But he raises good points, and everybody knows about NRA and gun controls

  2. Its one thing to talk about gun reform its another to be a gun fear mongering sackless twit who thinks he knows about guns.

  3. He's a fkin puppet sellout to the US GUV thats why he's been given a Netflix platform cuz he is not a Real Rebel he's just a puppet on a string and gittin paid. Notice that he dares not point a finger at the biggest Armament and Ordinance dealers on the planet.. thats right guess who… The U.S.

  4. It looks like USA is just trying make their (number of people killed by gun ) look smaller compare to other countries they helped get guns

  5. I live in the United States and it is absolutely ridiculous the things our government is allowed to get away with . Change is only possible if we take politicians out who are getting paid by lobbyist to protect the NRA . I’m disgusted consistently by the ignorance of the American people on this matter

  6. You know, I'm kinda tempted to shoot those NRA fucks at 500 yards. I don't know if that's poetic irony or giving in to the dark side.

  7. So much about it that Hassan doesn't know.
    The NRA is actually anti guns in America.
    I'm pro gun and the NRA needs to be shut down. They are liars

  8. U.S. guns to Mexico??? Did you forget:
    #1 – Hillary was caught trading guns to Mexican drug cartels which were used to kill an American border security guard…
    #2 – It’s you lefties who refuse to allow Trump to close the border to protect us from terrorists and drug cartels…
    #3 – Democrats are fighting to get rid of our rights!!!

    THATS RIGHT!!! Ignorant Democrats led by lying Democrat politicians are destroying freedom and Liberty in the most free nation in the world!!!

    P.S… A family member of mine was SAVED from being robbed and murdered by criminals at a rest area on an interstate BY A GUN!!! SO YES… The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun…is a good guy with a gun!!!

  9. If you want to really start getting gun control, start up a bunch of NRA Chapters with strictly minorities.

  10. Thanks dude, love what you're doing with this show. The silence of your listening audience at the end shows you the interesting point that you just made. Good journalism, keep it on !

  11. So the huge amount of South Americans migrants leaving their countries for America because of their country's gun violence is created by America and the NRA??? damn

  12. The extensive behavior of Police can also be blamed on lose gun control law. Since, guns are so easily, it makes police life so difficult, they have to act aggressively in most defensive way otherwise one mistake and their life is gone. These kind of practice also do the psychological and mental damage to the police.

    It's the policy for the gun is responsible. If citizen of America are really serious to make America great Again. They should opt for greater gun control and greater background check for buying guns. It will decrease the mass-shooting, decrease load on police, decrease cases of police mishandling.

    Best of luck American People.

  13. I love how people will not change rules/laws that are in place for 100's of years. You'd think they'd "modernize" most "Amenments" by now

  14. 2nd amendment is not a joke all free people need firearms protecting my life is my right not yours

  15. This is perhaps you are so popular, Hasan. Exposing the vicious cycle of arms that travels from USA and returns back again, along with immigrants,besides NRA's global crime. Yet you didn't press for NZ type ruling. Think if the problem is solved by a bunch of women-Omar, AOC, Kamala etc.

  16. A gun is not a weapon, Marge. It's a tool.
    Like a butcher knife, or a harpoon, or… uh, a… an alligator.
    You just need more education on the subject. Tell you what.
    You come with me to an N.R.A. meeting, and if you still don't think guns are great, we can argue some more.

  17. Great episode! Can we have a part deux with the impact of NRA's institutional racism and double standards here in the US juxtaposed with the mass influx of firearms in ghettos/lower socioeconomic communities?

  18. Thanks homie 4 the info, yeah funny the so called news OUTLETS haven't said a word…As an American we are some stupid, greedy people…✌❤ keep it 💯 say it 🗣 4 the bitches in the back…

  19. maybe the main agenda is to depopulate the earth. that's why all this bad thing about killings happens in first place… just a thought…

  20. I hope every NRA member gets a taste of their own poison they sell to others. Sick. I'm from Australia. The gun culture in America is insane. The fact that so many Americans have been brainwashed to think they need guns is insane.

  21. In case anyone needed any more proof that there is nothing so evil that people won't use it to make money. Alex Jones exploiting Sandy Hook. Trump giving tax breaks to the rich. Trump rolling back EPA regulations for his coal & oil buddies. Members of the Cabinet using the US Government as an ATM. Migrant camps and prisons run by private companies.

  22. I wonder if these episodes have any real effect? Or are they just yeah something most of us knew and told in a jokey format and things just chug along as before.. if so we need to make sure something is done by all this evil corporation only after $$$

  23. This show should be on hbo cause it’s some leftists propaganda. I’ve become skeptical of most “comedians” these days.

  24. Holy crap, I had no idea so many illegal guns were getting into Mexico! Something has to be done to stop this bullshit. I wish there were some way to make it waaaay more difficult to cross the border into Mexico w/illegal guns other than just wading through an ankle deep river during dry season? Something, anything would be better than all those illegal guns crossing the border and hurting innocent Mexicans! This has to be racism! I mean, if those illegal weapons were going to (predominantly white) Canada there would a 50ft wall, drones, cameras, 24hr lighting, and seismometers to detect tunneling… Wait! Do you think that would work on the Mexican border?

  25. Watch "The NRA. What the NRA did for Blacks. Caution:💪🇺🇸.HEAVY RACISM." on YouTube
    https://youtu.be/hzpcJPdE5C8

  26. The USA is gradually becoming the greatest menace for peace on earth that has ever existed. So much violence and weapons,and now the nuclear arms race back on.

  27. What other parts of our Bill of Rights should we forfeit? After we hand over all our guns to “Hitler” in the White House

  28. Brazil will be a more peaceful plays tbh. Now ppl will think twice before they try to steal from other civilians. At the previous football world cup, a lot of ppl got their backpacks taken from them in broad daylight.

  29. John Oliver this is the topic you should be covering, not some president that has a ton of World Genuiess Records, including president with the longest name.

  30. Ah goddamn it, Jacinda Adern is a joke. Please don't associate her with responsible gun owners in NZ. We hadn't had a mass shooting since 1990 and the guy who did the mosque shooting was Australian. I have never had a firearm in my life but Jacinda Adern is just making a mockery of responsible NZ citizens.
    Banning guns is a useless endeavour because criminals will not follow the law and if responsible citizens do not have the ability to protect themselves, then that is real tyranny.
    Sorry Hasan but you got it all wrong in this episode on so many levels that I doubt you have a proper understanding of the issue, but then you're modern media so it's not surprising.

  31. The only problem I have when discussing gun rights: The experts are dismissed by people who are scared of guns, thus we never get a chance to have a constructive discussion about firearms. People need to LEARN ABOUT GUNS before they try to talk about them. Seriously, guns are complex, including specific terms, devices, etc. And if you think you know enough to discuss them with a firearms expert, go to your guns store and give it a shot.

    Just a side point: According to the same study that claims "There have been more mass shootings than days in 2019" they neglect to mention that the "AR-15" style assault weapon was used 200ish time to commit a crime, but over 500 were used in self defense. Basically, people would rather ban assault weapons and let 300 people die over letting 200 people die. That's not a great position to be in, I think.

  32. These fuckers either like seeing people die or like getting money from gun makers and other gun supporters. Either way, it's absolutely disgusting

  33. I cannot stop remembering this dude for his comments about kids hitting eachother, and defending his kid from being violent to another kid just because the other kid is much bigger, it's so f*** cringe it undermines everything else I hear from him

  34. Why on earth would any civilian need to or be allowed to buy (semi-)automatic assault rifles? When you look at this rationally and objectively you’ll see that any possible answer is bonkers and anyone who promotes that idea should end up in jail.

  35. Welcome to America back to school time..
    Look there is a new section in the store for bulletproof back packs for kids now😔The next 4th of July what will we celebrate? When we say America is number one, in what ..
    Mass Shootings?
    That American Flag looks more like a logo for an illusion than an actual reality. The NRA at this point I say they support American Domestic terrorism for profit.

  36. The NRA doesn't care about the second amendment, all they care about is keeping people scared so they make more money off everybody's fears.
