After mass shootings, a turning point in the gun debate? | The Day That Was 1


In the wake of the deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, America is once again discussing common-sense gun laws, including background checks, red flag laws, and an assault weapons bans. The President said Friday that he was looking into "intelligent" background checks. But is this time any different?

    Keep pushing the corrupt GOP party who loves #NRAbloodMONEY at the victim’s expense! πŸ’™πŸŒŠ

    • @Larry D Ragland Jr Trump will win again because President are selected not elected and y’all still haven’t figured this out yet!!πŸ€”πŸ˜‚

    • @ManDough 1000 Trump was not selected Hillary was elected Trump was elected it’s sad to be human nowadays to see this world go to schitt’s with mental illness kids with guns and they don’t even talk about the inner-city blacks who get killed everyday 10 times more

    • @U4Eye I call it the illusion of inclusion that’s what y’all all under.. Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity a person who does something over and over and expect different results that’s what y’all are..

  3. This is Trump simply telling people what they want to hear until Mitch goes to Congress and Objects to it.

    Trump always lies. So do not believe what he said. And MoscowMitch will stay in Kentucki untill Americans forget about El Paso. That will only take 3 weeks. Senate will be back in 6 weeks. No problem for the NRA. No gun laws.

    • educate yourself dummy.
      there are more than 20,000 state and federal laws on the books. new laws will do nothing

    • Our amazing president has never lied to us, and He has the most informed and loyal base that anybody could. MAGA!

  5. Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines NOW! Constitutional rights are NOT absolute.

      I agree that something should be done American children shouldn’t fear going to school but banning a AR15 won’t fix the problem there are other semi automatic rifles that are 308. Or 306. Much more deadly just baning a rife won’t work. Please understand i do feel something needs to change just not sure this is the way

      @Jen Robbie most people doing these shootings are radicalized off the internet. Do we ban that too?

      @Jen Robbie and they don’t. If you look closely the right is to keep and bear arms. That is no threat to public safety. It is only when someone breaks the law that it becomes a problem. My guns, for example, have never shot anybody that I know of. Of course one of them is a ww2 rifle so it probably has but they’re not sneaking out at night shooting people. How are they or I a threat?

    Background checks are useless.
    Just look at the “Best People” that Dumpty’s hired to run our government.
    2020 is Coming!!!

    • Those people that Trump “employed” never had proper background checks though.

      They would have to get Putin’s permission, first.

  8. Sadly potus is not trustworthy – pray this time there is meanigful action not cheap talk

    • I don’t wan’t to burst your bubble but the amount of prayers for meaningful action that have gone unanswered should really be a clue…..

  9. wow – ‘trump’ and ‘intelligent’ in the same sentence. let me sit down…

  10. Ask what happened to the background checks Obama put into place before he left office….

  11. Mitch is sooooo enthusiastic!! U can hear it in his voice..!! Cant u?? πŸ€”

  12. president Donnie Dunce and the word β€˜intelligent’ do not fit in the same sentence.

  13. Seriously?
    You are going to listen to Trump and #MoscowMitch?
    Trump has lied constantly and always goes back on what he says, while making things worse.
    #MoscowMitch is the one who keeps killing these Bills and preventing them being actually voted on!

    I’ll believe it when it happens, not before.

  14. Jeffrey Epstein is dead, just thought i’d let you guys know.

  15. This seems to me like a flaw in our political system.
    The entire country is being held hostage by *ONE* man, *ONE* ?
    We can veto a president, but can’t move anything on the senate unless the _majority leader_ deems it worthy? What am I missing here? Experts please enlighten me

    Trump can not be bothered with actual leadership…..must go on vacation!!

  17. I’ll save you all some time πŸ˜‰
    The answer is NO!
    This is just dead adults… Mostly……. You Americans let classrooms full of children die…. Repeatedly……
    So No this is not a turning point πŸ˜‰

  18. Mitch McConnell takes money from the NRA.There should be a background check before the NRA can buy a Senator .

  19. trump is pump faking again he wont sign anything just like b4
