    It’s always excuses as to why we can’t do things from Congress I don’t even know why people even bother inviting them on their shows anymore , it’s plenty of excuses and blame shifting not enough potential solutions .

    • CNN a freakin liar ! … Also regarding the Officer Brian Sicknick of the US Capitol Police died after suffering two strokes, but there was no evidence of internal or external injuries from the January 6 unrest, the Washington, DC medical examiner has finally revealed.
      CNN made a big PROPAGANDA out of it!

    They’re so concerned about infringing on gun owner’s rights… what about my right to go to a supermarket and not die in a mass shooting?

    • @Collin Mac it’s a manipulation, think about what causes the most gun deaths. Suicide, mostly done with guns they own. Which is actually a great argument for you since it means you are much more likely to commit suicide with a gun then kill someone with a gun.

      You really are brainwashed man. I tell you what, I hope you get what you wish for because I can guarantee, you will be the first crying when you see what the results of disarming law-abiding citizens can really do. Just ask the Jews from Nazi Germany.

    • Don’t go shopping when blm or antifa are there then

    • @Al Gore Hasno Rythm you must not have your freedom

    • @Collin Mac Wrong. The answer is preventing the psycho / suicidal maniac from getting a gun in the first place. So you are saying if psycho wants to die by Cop, you wont mind if he kills you first to do it.

    “Guns Safety laws harm honest gun owners” is like saying that “Drunk Driving and all Traffic laws harm honest drivers”

    • James Miller | April 19, 2021 at 5:37 PM | Reply

      @theBriarChallenge Yes being detained is harm. Unlawfully detained is a crime and punishable. We already have background checks and it is a lie to say we do not. If any state is not running background checks then that is a problem in that state not on a national level. No need for limits on how many bullets a gun can hold at all. It doesn’t change a thing. All they need to do is act on the information they already have before a mass shooting occurs. No stop signs and lights help regulate the flow of traffic so every corner is not a 4 way stop. When a bridge is out and you have to reroute that is an inconvenience but being stopped to prove you are not drunk when you have not done anything to warrant the stop is harm. As a child I never had to worry about stray bullets cause if it happened the entire block would open fire and shut it down immediately. That is the way to end the insanity, not stopping people from defending themselves.

      @James Miller Why is the response of the GUN NUTS always “If everyone has a gun then no one would commit crime”


      Every one had guns!

      Gang shootouts in broad daylight!

      Surprise, Surprise, there was also….

      Crime and Prostitution Everywhere!!!!

      I hope your gun doesn’t get you killed when the cops mistake you for the criminal when you go and play vigilante – it’s not like that hasn’t happened… Multiple times…. Recently….

    • @Vital Signs Driving is a right.

    • @theBriarChallenge You are using logic to the logically challenged.
      It also amuses me when they say it is their right when the 2nd amendment clearly states

      “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.”

      And how many of these people are actually in a “well regulated militia”? Actually, are there any “well regulated militias” at all? By that 2nd amendment, if not in a well regulated militia, owning a gun is against the law is it not? Perhaps I am viewing this tooo simply, not living in the US & having witnessed a successful cleaning up lax gun laws, I always get a chuckle from the “out there” contingent.

  5. I was only able to send thoughts for the last mass shooting. The next shooting happened before I was able to include the prayers.

      You don’t pray. You’re a Communist!

    • How did Trump Administration Ban Bump Stocks Without Passing Any Legislation?

    • @E Garza Because as it was explained at the time, “bump stocks” are an accessory and not _part_ of a gun, so the NRA had no problem accepting those restrictions.
      Or to phrase it in another way: the ATF can’t deal with the bump stocks because bump stocks are not the “F” in ATF

    • I often say that we should leave the flag at half mast all the time and only raise it when no one gets shot.

    He says he doesn’t know why the facts are factual. This makes it possible for him to ignore them. Such a principled man.

    • @King Onei Totally right; these are preventable tragedies, and we have obvious solutions with over 90% of us strongly in favor.

      Oops, almost forgot; it’s because we aren’t a functional democracy, and when 90+% of us agree on something, we still can’t get it done if the bribing class and their hired Congressional goons say they’ll block us from protecting American lives; kids gotta be killed for the benefit of further enriching the already super rich with blood money.

      Meanwhile the Judge in the Chauvin trial just said that the case may be overturned on appeal because of Democrat law makers calling for violence if the jury doesn’t rule as she sees fit….

    • @Philip Abeyta Really? Did the judge actually quote anyone doing that, or just assert that it happened? It sounds like a right wing rewrite of a democrat saying the obvious; that there’s going to be massive unrest if they let him off. That’s not a threat, nor is it calling for violence; it’s stating an unavoidable truism.

      If you are reporting accurately, that judge is unfortunately, a dishonest idiot, but that’s a big if.

      @Greg Vinson The judge literally said those words!

    Of course you can legislate to prevent evil – they are called laws. If not prevention then at least mitigation.

  10. James Comer says ” If a criminal really sits and think about it….” 
    He’s asking us to let our lives depend on the criminal sitting and thinking about it.

      Yeah, like that mental calculus happens all the time. Wasn’t there at least one shooting on a military base, FFS?

  11. Man, Pam lead him down the rabbit hole, got him to say exactly what she wanted him to say. Trap and destroy.

  12. This man is the face and voice of evil. Evil people looking for an excuse to commit acts of evil will always be attracted to this face and voice.

    I love the way he says he wants to improve family and bring the difference down between the rich and poor.. LOL

    • Heather Burnard | April 19, 2021 at 1:26 PM | Reply

      Right?? Mate, your party are the ones increasing the wealth gap, refusing to consider legislation that would improve family life like paid parental leave, and ensure we don’t spend money on job education programs for those in dying industries! He says he wants to improve our lives to reduce gun violence yet stands in the way of bills that would do just that!

      So I guess this means he supports increasing the minimum wage, improving the social safety net so more people can get benefits, and providing universal healthcare so people don’t need to spend thousands of dollars a year just to have some kind of coverage, right? 🤷‍♂️

      @malcom wembolua but you are right…sorta. i think they should ban large capacity magazines/clips… that can cause alot of damage in a short amount of time, however, if no one wants to randomly kill people… it wouldnt matter if its a 10 round clip or 100 …right ?? ok,im done.

  15. At the end of the day… They don’t represent the citizens. They represent $

  16. All of the voices in my head own a gun, and they get along just fine, although one of the voices won’t stop humming

    America is like a 400 pound guy that say “no, i’m not fat because i eat 2 kg of fast food a day and only drink stuff that is more sugar than water. I think it’s because my room doesn’t have enough feng shui” when 10 of his friends that were fat like him tell him that they lost weight by stopping to eat like that suggesting that he should learn about vegetables. If it worked for every other country, it will work for the usa too you just need to find the proper way to enforce it because that actually change based on countries

  18. I like how they had a discussion Like how adults do💯💪🏾
