  1. 3:25 guys is entitled to his opinion and I respect his service but that's his opinion and not some sort of end all fact… plenty of other service men can claim and do claim the exact opposite so there.

  2. The GOP/NRA ERASED THE FIRST HALF OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT IN 2008! That's why these MASS MURDERS happen!

    The 2nd Amendment- 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.

    The GOP/NRA 2nd Amendment- The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    They got rid of the part about the WELL REGULATED because that is the part of the 2nd Amendment that makes clear that it was designed for the MILITARY, NOT CIVILIANS! Now we have WEEKLY MASS MURDERS because of it…

  3. You can stop it with a good guy with a gun… so lets see .. Vietnam… failed …. afghanistan … russian tried, failed… americans are trying it now over 10 years … failed… seems having a bigger and better gun does not stop a bad guy.

  4. If the fat orange POS wanted to keep guns out of the hands of people with mental health issues why did he sign the Republican bill to repeal the Obama background checks to deny some people with mental health issues access to buy guns? Two faced fin LIAR. Then fan the flames of alt right white gun nuts by screaming lies about an invasion of criminals from central America. Trump and his Repugnant MAGAt's have blood on their hands and the proof is that so far 3 of them have been caught planning and carrying out terror attacks including the Parkland shooter.

  5. What kind of question is that. Really nobody needs automatic high capacity assault weapons. Just do one at a time with a hand gun.

  6. You people who want to ban weapons of any kind are sheep. The 2nd amendment was put in place for one reason….. To protect us from our own government and tyranny. It was written for military grade weapons at the time it was written. War is killing people. And the civil war was still a war.    We don't need to take weapons out of the hands of law abiding citizens, we need to arm our people, and tell everyone capable of handling a weapon to carry, open or concealed. And GET RID OF GUN FREE ZONES. All a gun free zone does, is give a disconnected, deranged lunatic, a place to slaughter. MOLAN LABE #comeandtakethem

  7. Trump has never ever called a good man a good man. We can be certain that if Trump id calling someone a good man or woman they are most very likely bad.

  8. Trump thinks very strongly? That means he was doing a little bit of thinking in that general topic.

    Ever notice he either says he doesn't think or thinks very strongly about something? Very little inbetween when referencing himself. He has to try so hard to have thoughts…especially thoughts that are his own.

  9. Just a polite reminder: every American's right to keep and bear arms is both natural and unalienable. These rights were neither granted by government, nor can they be repealed by government. The highest foundational laws of our nation clearly prohibit government – federal, state and local – from acting in this matter. CONGRESS HAS NO POWER WHATSOEVER to enact any law, no matter how seemingly "reeeeezonable" – if that law even infringes upon our rights. Sorry MSNBC, you're just vomiting propaganda… again.

  10. —Note to "Congressman" Brown: you swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. Now, you openly defy that oath. You are either hopelessly uneducated, or you're an outright traitor.
    —In US v Miller, the highest court in our land decided that "weapons suitable for militia use" ARE protected under the Bill of Rights for civilian ownership and use. So called "sporting or hunting" weapons ARE NOT PROTECTED. You have the issue precisely backwards from the legal, cultural and historical truth in our society.
    —In America, an armed civilian population is necessary for the security of a free state. What you propose is the opposite of a free state. Every able adult in the USA is considered a member of the unorganized militia, and is charged with the responsibility of self defense and the defense of liberty.
    —You may consider the idea of a civilian militia as being "outdated", but history and recent events refute your beliefs. Consider the recent riots of Ferguson MO – instigated by political operatives. Many people lost their homes and businesses – burned by the riotous mob as the police retreated from "excessive danger". Some homes and businesses were saved only because they were guarded by members of the "Oath Keepers", fully armed. These men ARE a modern version of the Founding Fathers' concept of "militia".
    —You can disagree all you wish. You may remain unarmed. BUT, YOU MAY NOT IMPOSE YOUR BELIEFS ON THE FREE PEOPLE. You do not have any lawful power under the Constitution to even infringe upon our rights.
    —You are dismissed.

  11. Duh, 30 years ago, civilians didn't have access to 20, 30, and 100 round Beta Magazines… this is a major difference.

  12. All they do is talk , round and round we go. Gosh darn it do your job. Money must get out of politics. This is f***ing ridiculous. I always knew politicians are corrupt, but cheese and rice it is way out of hand.

  13. Yeah people, let's do something about us getting shot. It's not like we're innocent defenseless animals that can be murdered randomly by the millions annually by creepy psychopaths! Right? Noooo, because that is O.K., after all, they're "just" animals…………………….

  14. We were taught and trained in the military to respect weapons for what they are, and for what they do. I totally agree with this gentleman. It's an absolute no-brainer. You wouldn't let some nutjob off the street perform an operation to take your appendics out. You trust those who have been trained and understand the ramifications of malpractice. Guns in the hands of every Jo and Joanne on the street, isn't a constitutional right…it's insanity.

  15. Someone should tell that "army veteran" that no military on the planet issues a semi-automatic rifle as standard issue to their soldiers. Semi-automatic rifles have been legally and morally owned in this country for more than 100 years. Furthermore, you are at least twice as likely to be punched or kicked to death than to be killed by a semi-automatic rifle. Rifles, semi-automatic and otherwise, accounted for less than 2.7% of firearms homicides in 2017. Source: https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u.s.-2017/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-8.xls

  16. CALL CONGRESS, toll free 1-844-USA-0234. CALL over and over and over, day after day after day. MAKE THEM DO SOMETHING OR GO!

  17. Why not rename them as the time has yielded new and more modern "guns", the second amendment says guns. These are "Assault Weapons" so why are we calling them guns.

  18. The 5.56 round is a tumbling round. If the round enters the hip it could exit at the shoulder. There's a lot of damage done between those two points. That's why must victims don't survive.

  19. Putting things into perspective, that 32 seconds equals almost 20 years in Japan for gun violence.

    Yea, do the math.

  20. Criminals can get guns and drum mags. So, when they come and shoot up your churches and your malls, and you don't have any guns because the left has taken that freedom, don't cry, don't complain, you asked for this. You trusted the gov. to protect you instead of protecting yourself. The gov. And police can only be in so many places at one time. Imagine if all citizens carried guns and knew how to use them. Crime Gone! When's the last time Wyoming had a mass shooting. I mean 60% of their population is armed.

  21. So is a bolt action sniper rifle a weapon used in war. And the same calibers are used for hunting. You don’t have the right to say how I use my second amendment right any more than I can demand to know who you vote for, & why you vote for them. It’s a right. You don’t want to take advantage, leave your doors unlocked and enjoy. You swore to uphold the constitution, not destroy it. You may have served, and now I’m wondering who you serve? Criminals, that’s who! This is why our forefathers fought for these rights. So a tyrannical government can’t take things from us that we have a God given right to have. Inalienable means you Congressmen didn’t give them and you Congressman can’t take them. Not happenin’

  22. If Moscow Mitch doesn't want to act, force him to resign and put all the blames on him. Lock him …..he doesn't care if all people will killed. …..Americans do something about Moscow Mitch. ….

  23. Military vet lied through his leftist teeth. Military rifles can be fully automatic. These guns are semi-auto just like 90% of the guns in America. Why didn't he define what an assault weapon is. Because he can't.

  24. Why should criminals get to have assault rifles or semi automatice rifle but your going to limit and put the law biding citizens at a disadvantage? If i got to protect me or my family i want to have be at a advantage not disadvantage. I would want a AR-15 with atleast a 30 round mag and everything else i can have with it legally. And another thing too, i just want to say theirs a blackmarket out their for everything, especially guns. So if someone really wants one they can get one.

  25. You hear that America…your dead are forgotten to this president. I’m sure those that died in 9/11 were only remembered when he wants to use their deaths for his political agendas and bigotry. I wonder if all the proud boys and neonazis died if he would care?! Probably not either.

  26. I totally agree get rid of all the assault weapons. It's nothing wrong with handguns and shotguns and rifles. But AR-15s in anything like that mass casualties automatically.

  27. I once had a student in my classroom who had the potential to become a very aggressive White Supremacist, and our school had a large percentage of kids who went deer hunting. Ergo, they had guns. All too often, those who do not fit in have an internal resentment, and that can be scary. I recently discovered the student referenced above is no longer living, and I shamefully admit to having had an instance of relief that he could no longer be a threat. Sometimes our internal radar just screams ALERT!

  28. The Gatling gun was the first high capacity weapon…..it's inventor never never intended it for the general public. The second amendment does not give you the right to any gun in the candy shop. Its supposed to be highly regulated…was mostly intended for militia (which became obsolete after state troopers and national guard). NOBODY needs high capacity weapons except soldiers. Stop the madness …check the NRA report card and see who's getting money from them and vote them OUT of office.

  29. The President is claiming to be the most 2nd Amendment President ever and he doesn't neven know what the 2nd Amendment says. Nobody ever reads the first part. A smart Constitutional Lawyer could easily argue that the right to bear arms was/is conditional and those conditions no longer exist for civilians. Those conditions as presently described in the 2nd Amendment only applies to our armed forces. Like I said, it's open to debate and subject to interpretation.

  30. This guy has no idea what he is talking about. No civilian AR or AK has ever been used on a battlefield. The weapons issued to soldiers are select fire weapons, these are NOT. Yeah, if I have to defend myself, I want to outgun the criminals. Magazine capacity has already been proven to have no noticeable effect. The only place you are going to get a 90% result on that poll is a liberal held area with oversampling.

  31. The AR15 is not a weapon of war. It only looks like one. But since the anti gun groups ignore that, can anyone tell me which modern military uses the AR15 as it's standard issue rifle for it's military personnel?

  32. Mr Do Nothing McConnell…after sucking down NRA money…from Russia… codename: Mitch the Russian B>tch

  33. Take heed to what is really going on. To use a token black man to deliver a message against gun violence is an insult to the intelligence of every American citizens on Turtle Island. This is and has always been a violent country from it's inception by foreign invaders. It tortured and murdered it's original indigenous inhabitants into silence. Then the colonizers fought each other over the control of every resource, including human beings through gun violence. It all sounds like hypocrisy and political theater played out on a chess board all across this great nation of ours. The most violent people on the planet want gun control to protect it's citizens.💩👅👃👀👌Most of us require justice and peace for all, not just a select pack of wolves preaching civility for public consumption through mass media.

  34. Words words words. Republicans will never even hold a vote on gun control, no matter how many kids die. Never. You have to vote them out people.
    The republican party is dead. Thoughts and prayers.

  35. Unless you want to lose the electoral votes, Democrats are going to need to push a different agenda than 'get rid of guns'. Push the Switzerland method, where people have classes and training on weapons. REAL classes. Practice marksmanship. I know that sounds strange but it works. For one thing, instructors are trained to notice the difference in an individual that wants a gun for hunting and protection, and one that seems over-eager to use the gun on others. Switzerland isn't having to sell bulletproof backpacks.
    **Also, note that rarely is one of the mass shooters a man named Bubba that was raised hunting and maintaining his weaponry. You may not like Bubba, You may think that Bubba is a racist. But, Bubba isn't the ones shooting up the school's. And Bubba's love, LOVE talking guns. Get Bubba on board with helping with Gun training and maintenance, and Bubba will be your man.
    **I am just a mom from a Red State. But it doesn't matter if every single person on the west coast and over half on the east coast vote Democrat. Unless the Democrats change up their presentation, they will lose the Electoral Votes and Trump will win again.

  36. Mister Brown, please keep pushing to take assault guns off the street. Make it illegal to have usable war guns in the home.

  37. Can I ask a dumb question please. Why has the Police Unions said nothing about this, surely, they and their members have a lot to lose with these guns being publicly available so easily.

  38. If you want to play with weapons of war I.e. assault rifles. Then by god have the fortitude to put the uniform on serve the nation and earn the right to Carry such a weapon. As veterans we see these as tools of the trade and not a toy for weekend hog hunting.

  39. I don't live in your country… BUT!
    I say to you republican voters and PARENTS – how can you look at your children as YOU SEND THEM TO SCHOOL EACH DAY!

  40. No, we don't need to take those weapons off the streets of America. We need background checks, etc that are sensible and don't restrict the rights of law abiding gun owners. Period. The 2nd Amendment must stand. Period.

  41. The latest reporting is President Trump is starting to waffle on universal background checks. God, I hope not. Do we the people still run this country or is it we the people (except when the NRA considers that problematic)?

  42. These universal background checks are a good starting point… But no background check would’ve revealed anything on the Las Vegas shooter… He wounded over 500 people and killed over 50….It’s a great place to start but it’s not enough… The time has come to eliminate the soldiers weapon from the civilian population… Mental illness does not wear a sandwich board announcing it self… If someone has lived an anonymous life and suddenly finds them self with dark thoughts they can easily stock pile these type of weapons because the background checks would reveal nothing

  43. I think America spent so much time in Afghanistan that they have become just like who they war with. Truth dignity integrity,they have lost it now they look at ppl as goats and animals. Next the government will sell each family a tank for protection😕😕😕

  44. REALLY? 90% of americans support background checks? Interesting thing to learn. Hah. Last time I knew, there were a lot more people who go by the mantra "Shall not be infringed"

  45. McConnell is a Russian sellout traitor plane and simple otherwise give any reason whatsoever for his actions…

  46. But I really need my Russian made AK-47 with 30 round banana clip (now for sale in Bobs gun shop Norfolk, VA) to go Wabbit shootin….

  47. Is this for real, is everyone doing a collective Dasterdly and Mutely?.

    What are weapons if they're not for killing?

  48. What the [email protected]&K is weapon design technology! And in there structure! Please stop!!!!! You guys are killing more law abiding gun owners WHO KNOW what a assault rifle is than any Mass Shooting!!!!!! So Mr. Congressman went to Afghanistan with a AR GTFO!!!!!!!

  49. those republican will do something….they will ask for more money from the NRA so that they can continue to turn a blindeye to all the dead and dying of america 🙁

  50. Why do republicons not know that 90% of people in America want background checks!!!! A bill to require background checks and a ban on gun shoes has to be passed! A all out ban is needed! Get out the gun registry, and require that everyone turn in these weapons before more people die in mass shootings!!!!

  51. What are weapons of war?
    Let's see… rock, Spear, bow and arrows, mace (not that spray junk), axe, tomahawk, fist, catapult, fire, burning or hot oil. sword, dagger, katana, flintlock, musket, pistol, m1 carbine (semi-automatic)…..
    The gun ban proposal is based on the look of a weapon, ignoring the fact that the weapon is no different in it's function as any other SEMI-automatic weapon.
    A tyrannical government has reformed itself right under our noses…forcing the people to buy commercial licenses to fish, travel and to have the right to keep and bear arms for a fee. The right to gather for a fee, the right to build on your property for a fee… all while we, the people sit back and allow our servants to reduce the constitution of the united states to just an old museum piece.

  52. Mexico does not allow any arms used by military in civilian hands,mandatory jail for those
    caught in possesion of a high caliber arm.

  53. No American should have the right to own a weapon of mass Destruction, they are not a defence weapon, they are for KILLING as many people as possible in WAR. The must be BANNED and made illegal for private use.

  54. If we dont want people with mental problems have guns what are you going to do about trump thats in charge of our most deadly weapons on earth because he is one sick fein

  55. We the People are supposed to have the same Military Firearms Equal to them and Shall not be Infringed!! 👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  56. Been there Done That and Wore Out the t-shirts, but I Still feel the same way about our 2nd Ammendment Rights in tack for Either Tyranny Both Foreign and Domestic Threats and right now I feel like Our own Government is Making a Tremedious Mistake and Shall not be Infringed!!!

  57. Unfortunately things will never change unless politicians or a member of their family is a victim of gun violence. Even then they may still choose their career and power over saving lives.

  58. NRA & GOP should really wake up and stop being greedy. Supporters of this should really be ashamed of themselves. I put the blame at the top. Something could be done, they just won’t do it. How they got a strangle hold around Mitch neck? I don’t think so. That’s why he looks like a turtle 🐢 and don’t care. He going further and further in that 🐚. 😂 😆 😝

  59. Time to drag Lapierre out of his blood money mansion he got for facilitating the massacre of civilians and execute him for crimes against the people of America.

  60. If someone could physically demonstrates what assault weapons do to the human body it might finally put the citizens anger over the edge. I’m not sure how you’d do it. Maybe use a red gel filled doll to simulate a child. Show what a volley of high powered gunfire would do to a 6 year olds body or a teenagers face. It would be awful and gruesome but by God let these gun nuts see first graders cut in half with assault rifles. It IS horrendous but maybe 2nd amendment radicals and Moscow Mitch would finally see how evil it is to put weapons of war on our streets.

  61. Well said! Assault weapons and any weapons of war belong in the hands of the military. It makes no sense to allow them in the civilian market, certainly not in a civilised society. Enough kids and innocents have died because of the ready availability of these weapons.
