      You moron. An AR-15 is not an automatic weapon. Educate yourself.

      @jb pb also nothing to do with these types of mass murders. Stop deflecting. Your argument is so simplistic I doubt you’ve ever thought about it carefully and thoughtfully. Gun violence is an American disgrace.

  2. I’m in my early thirties and grew up in one of the worst hoods in NC near Charlotte/Piedmont. People died almost everyday. I remember there was a shoot out one night while everyone was sleeping and me and my brother window was hit with a stray bullet. I remember playing hide and seek as kids having vans pull up with guns, we hit the deck. We need gun reform.

      @Jason DixonOMG not the all countries are different than the US argument,… I thought you had FACTS LMAO ……
      so your facts are that all the statistics do not matter because every country is different, OMG Trumpers are hilarious…..Jason … could have got a secondary education with critical thinking skills, but you knew it was a waste of money on you, and didn’t….good for you my special friend…..
      And now we present the conservative debate champion Jason, fresh off his amazing victory, over fellow genius Sarah Palin….. ”Ok I am ready for those idiots, with their facts and science and logic.. I got all the facts I need on gun violence and I am ready for ya. ( those clowns wont know what hit them when I defeat all global statistics with my special “our country is not that country argument”..cause all other countries are different,,bam…..why are you all pointing and laughing at me, Trumpers are smart….ROTFL…all countries are different , of well they all quit when they realized my circular logic was unbeatable…I wonder what Qanon is doing, must check in and stay a head of those liberals”…..

      Oh well , your mom says your smart, and that’s something Jason…

      @Akey Hisson Wait a minute Bruh! Did you just say we haven’t had a mass shooting in supermarkets, clubs, concerts etc in 20 years? Stop commenting, you have no credibility!

    • @Murray Flewelling , Where are your facts and why are you looking over facts? I totally debunked yours and you keep moving the goal post. What’s wrong? Facts not fitting your lies. ” Australia has not had a mass shootings sence their ban”. Your words and it was a lie. Google it. You just can’t own up to your own lies.

    • @Sardo Numspa you might want to read the comments before making assumptions.

    • No. We need more stable families with real parents ,better schools and better policing.

      How does banning safety features and calling them “assault weapons” help anyone?

  4. Christina Hite | April 16, 2021 at 6:02 PM | Reply

    I agree it’s embarrassing. I’m pro gun rights and am also against assault weapons. Why does anyone other then the military need them? 🙄. Also our moral compass has been damaged. We don’t value life anymore. It’s a sad state of affairs.

    • @Ryan Johnson We need to BAN CRIMINALS!!

      Knives were used long ago to murder yet they are in your kitchen next to your food . Even your kids have touched these murderous knives . They are a threat and must be stopped ✋ .

    • Bye “pro gun” do you mean just yours? You cant be pro gun except those

    • if you’re against assault weapons…then u should know that there’s no such thing as an assault weapon… LOL! fake gun rights troll.

    We keep “hoping” something will get done, and it doesn’t. We’re in the midst of years of head-banging. It’a time for Biden to make some unilateral decisions. Nothing will EVER get done otherwise.

    • So, like a dictator? Is that what you mean?

    • Skabetti Spaghetti | April 16, 2021 at 8:50 PM | Reply

      @Joe Blow That’s a scare tactic/talking point republican leaders are using to maintain the status quo. Do your research and don’t buy those talking points. No one wants to take guns away. There just needs to be regulations, which 94% of the country wants. This includes republican voters. It’s the republican leadership and the corrupt NRA that are pushing the points you’re espousing.

    • Skabetti Spaghetti | April 16, 2021 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      @Rod He’s issued 6 executive orders on gun violence prevention. Executive orders aren’t dictatorship.

    • @Skabetti Spaghetti Regulate yourself

    • Skabetti Spaghetti | April 16, 2021 at 9:01 PM | Reply

      @Joe Blow 94% of the country is tired of watching people die at the hands of others, and tired of hearing about suicides. Your argument doesn’t hold water because people don’t regulate themselves. If they did, there wouldn’t be so much violence.

    Embarrassment?????????????? People are dying. They had one in my high school cafeteria. I got through 20 years before but 5 neighbors never will. It is time.

    • We know from covid antimaskers that half the country doesn’t care about killing. He’s appealing to their ego if that’s all there is in their brains.

      I had a bomb threat call made against my school when I was in 10th grade and I’m not calling for banning phones.

      What “commonsense” restrictions on your rights are you willing to give up in exchange? I think we should restrict your 1st and 4th, agree?

      It’s crazy that it took this guy 20 years to finish Grade school. At least he finished.

  9. So many of the people who knew the mass shooter suspected they would do it. PEOPLE if you suspect someone is planning a similar situation, please do not hesitate to call authorities.

      There’s not much that can be done until it’s too late unfortunately.

      The guy who killed people, in the Indiana FedEx parking lot, was reported by his mother. The FBI investigated him, and took his shotgun. Fat lot of good that did. Since it was Indiana, he was able to go out and buy more weapons.

      @Deborah Freedman Sounds like a crime

  10. Ohhhh! Thank you for your information.

  11. Agreed; so is the fact that corporate America & the wealthy don’t pay their fair share of taxes & the rest of us pay for everything.

      So look that up, AfterSkool does a great video on this. There was no such thing as a regular income tax until 1913 when we voted it in to “tax the rich”. We have never voted to tax anyone but the rich. But today the rich on average less than 18% in taxes and so those taxes are pushed into the middle class that always pays above 25%. When you hear someone say “tax the rich” know they’re trying to trick YOU into paying more taxes, not the rich. Or they’re just ignorant with good intentions (so ultimately bad)

    • Josh Garland | April 16, 2021 at 7:01 PM | Reply

      @Joseph Gerarde When people say “tax the rich”, they don’t mean “tax the people who pay the most taxes”, which is what you’re implying. When people say “tax the rich”, they mean “implement appropriate taxation on those who make millions of dollars a year”.

      @Josh Garland
      I hate to break this to you, but we already do exactly that. Basic education and five seconds on Google would tell you that. But hey, you clearly vote Democrat, so you’re obviously very god damned stupid.

    Remember the days when you were happy to have a single shot 22 calibre to go hunting with. You had to be able to hunt rather than spray the area with lead in the hope that you might hit something.

    • The second amendment is not about hunting

    • Identity Unknown | April 16, 2021 at 8:52 PM | Reply

      @C S Of course, “well regulated” meant something that functions well. If you were an aprentice for Ben Franklin and he asked how the printing press was going today, he’d want to hear “IT’S WELL REGULATED SIR”…. Dude, why would a right be inherent (born with it), and further suggested “{shall not be infringed”, somehow be assumed to be subject to legislative “regulation”? Are you seriously that stupid?

    • Adolf Shitler | April 16, 2021 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      You clearly have never been hunting nor know anything about firearms.

    • Peter Harris | April 16, 2021 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      @Adolf Shitler you have no idea what I have done in hunting. When you go hunting with a bow for wild boar then you can talk

    • @Joe Blow the 2nd amendment was having just fought a war against the English and having no standing army to defend themselves against any possible aggression the ability to create an armed force capable of quickly assembly was necessary. In order to do this the concept of militia that were well armed and trained in military tactics was envisaged. It was In order to ensure the volunteers were able to be armed and bring their own weapons that the amendment was written. The government of the day didn’t supply weapons. That was the sole purpose for the second amendment and since the formation of a standing full time military the second amendment is defunct.

  14. Bring out the prayers and candles

  15. Go on any TV station website and you’ll see shootings everywhere. From Burbank to Boston. Daily deaths. It’s like Vietnam all over again.

  16. As a Australian, I find these shootings just unbelievable, down here its doesn’t happen because of our intelligent/necessary/licenced gun laws.
    And yes farmers and hunters still have their rights to own ‘appropriate’ guns.

    God please give concern to the families and friends of perpretadors that they be wised and notify any suspicious act of mass shooting to the authorities on time so they can save the lives of many, amen. 🙏
