  4. The time to do something was when 20 children were slaughtered.

      We did, here in scotland. Nearly 20 years ago. Not had another school shooting since that awful day. No brainer for us……

    • Moron. You have no idea how hard it is to get a CCW in New England.

    • @Human Being great, now let’s get the rest of the country to follow.

    • @Allosaurus Fragilis yeah australia got rid of theirs too, it’s just ridiculous we have to keep giving thoughts and prayers every other week because nothing is ever done.

  5. MSM: “the shooter appears to be white so he’s a white supremacist!”
    Shooter is named Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa
    MSM: “it’s racist to assume a religious or cultural motive but hey remember Atlanta and the capitol riot?

    • @Teriyaki Flavored Tide Pods they are. Equality for every race along with economic equality.

      Anti whiiiiiite…👈😁…

    • @Umgonna kickbooty never said anything that implied being anti white but ok.

      @Storm Coder
      Why do you hate whites ?..👈🤔..

      Is it the same reason that you
      hate dogs ?…👈🤔…

      ….and children ?…👈😳….

    • @Umgonna kickbooty I have plenty of white friends and talk to them often. Kids are fine, but im afraid of dogs.

      Better question for you is why are you trying to make me look guilty and keep using those hands on every message?

  6. How about we encourage gun safety and encourage concealed carry so when this does happen, it can be stopped. No matter how many laws you put on the books someone who wants to commit these horrible acts. There are solutions to this problem without stepping on people’s rights

      @Allosaurus Fragilis this is our country this is our constitution. It’s not some “ancient” script. The Second Amendment says we have the right to bear arms. This country doesn’t keep anyone here that doesn’t want to be.

    • @Allosaurus Fragilis Ancient amendment ?? That’s incredibly naive of world history.

    • @Mr. Man agreed

    • @Allosaurus Fragilis those same countries have way less of population and have been founded on those ideals. America is not founded on communism or facism. CNN/MSM/RICH GOV/CORRUPT people are to blame not law abiding citizens you clown.

    • Allosaurus Fragilis Mexico has very strict gun control yet in 2018 one Mexican city, Tijuana, had 2512 homicides, which is nearly double what the entire state of Texas had that year. Ciudad Juarez shares the border with El Paso, Texas, but Juarez has 25 times the rate of homicides than El Paso. Just 4 countries, all with strict gun control account for 25% of all homicides on Earth, Brazil, Venezuela, Honduras, and Mexico. Making good people defenseless has never made bad people harmless.

  7. No it’s not time yet. Congress needs to wait until the year 2121

    How is gun control going to stop a mental health problem?

    • @Wolf See, black markets are available, totally agree, but again, every other country in the globe that has toughened their gun control have SIGNIFICANTLY less deaths & crimes & suicides as a result. But for some yet to be revealed reason, the US seems unable to do it.

    • @Jonas P Except I already explained to you why bans wouldn’t work in the US the only way they could enforce such a ban is house to house raids which would , like I said before, would be a failure. The FBI are the ones who failed not the 2nd Amendment. Almost every recent mass shooting the FBI had actionable evidence against the gunmen. Let’s look at Parkland where the manifesto of the shooter was sent to the FBI, but they failed to act.

    • @Wolf Hang on, I’m talking about gun control, not bans. And I mean strict gun control with extensive background checks. Anyway, if we disagree on it, fine. I have no issue with anyone having an opinion. Cheers.

    • @Jonas P I was talking about assault weapons bans, but yeah man you have a good one.

    • @Wolf BTW, Thanks for keeping it civil, appreciated it. Cheers.

    Also someone should’ve told the guy that automatic weapons are already illegal. That’s just misleading intentionally.

    Its called the wild west for a reason

  11. Science is always revealing new truths as new facts become known,”” Science is not settled”” science is a progressive road to making a common-sense conclusion on what’s known at the time. Science is not the end all following the science in 1843 could have you all being leeched to death, but we killed that cold. Science is not that far advance now. Sometime I feel like i’m being forced to be leeched.

  12. Banning more guns won’t solve the problem, it will only increase it and make people more vulnerable to these types of attacks.

    • How many times have a responsible gun owner saved the situation of a mass shooting?

    • Jonathan Atkinson | March 24, 2021 at 5:39 PM | Reply

      @Josh K. How many times have mass shooters have targeted places where there was some kind of armed security? These active shooters only look for a body count, not a shootout.

    Banning guns will cause riots that will make the BLM race riots look like a casual gathering.

    • Are you saying that the Proud Bois, Bogallo Bois, Patriot Prayer, etc, will start riots? Revolution? Uprising? Secession? I agree, you have a point.

    • @West Park when the government takes your guns guess what they are coming for next

  14. But I absolutely need an AR 15 to go grocery shopping at Walmart. How else am I going to protect myself?

    • Walmart will protect us. Door greeters provide kevlar helmets and body armor. Mini-guns and stinger RPGs on the roof top. 30-cal MG 42 on the shopping carts. Cross-firing Vickers water-cooled machine guns on every exit. Flamethrowers in front of the store. Parking lot is a mine field. No bad guy will be able to enter this place!

    • @West Park the only solution!

    A right delayed is a right denied.

  16. My heart goes to those families who lost a loved one. Truly. The pain they will feel will last a lifetime and they will need to find peace within themselves, within their family units and, if desired, through professional help. Mental trauma is what leads to those that are in mental pain to cause physical pain on themselves and others. For those who are looking to turn this into a political battle, SHAME ON YOU! A gun ban is not the answer. Taking guns away from the people and trying to revoke the 2nd amendment will not take the guns away from the bad people. Higher taxes and fees will not take the guns away from the bad people. Longer wait times and exhausting tests on gun owner applicants will not take the guns away from the bad people. Truly GOOD people, who are responsible with their own methods of defense, will take the guns away from the bad people. America is about FREEDOM; freedom to make a choice. Our choices have reactions and we must all live with them but a government punishing its good people for the actions of its bad people is not just. It’s political warfare against its own people. This is a war game that has started by extremist groups within our own government to make America fail. You will see this same type of strategy every time a communist experiment is initiated in a country. Cambodia, China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos, Vietnam and many others have fallen victim to this experiment. Look at them now. Freedom is the religion. 🇺🇸

  17. “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature.
    They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit
    crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for
    the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent
    homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence
    than an armed man.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

  18. It’s been time to get something done but a lot these lawmakers don’t care cause none of the people that they know personally aren’t being killed so to them this is all just a bunch of nonsense

  19. Civilians can’t buy “assault rifles”, what is he talking about?

  20. Buy a 3d printer. Google FGC-9. Show them “gun control” is impossible. Control is an illusion that only the feeble minded believe in.
