    1. When the lady said he had done great work. She meant great work getting through this without dropping a load in his diaper

  1. My buddy from New York got robbed at his small store by gun point. The criminal got caught and sent to jail. 2 days later he was robbed again by gun point by the same guy.

    1. @TheZSquaredMusic Selective enforcement is the purpose of most of the criminal code. There should be a Constitutional Amendment that says no person under the jurisdiction of the US shall be subject to regulation totaling more than 5000 words.

    2. Thank you for your comment and yes gun violence keeps increasing. Iam confused is there any talk about taking guns away or stopping a citizen protecting his/her life. Please show the bill that plans to take your guns, if not sit down.

    3. Epic failure of the judicial system. I worked with the homeless for 20 years. I had a guy commit armed assault and robbery in my waiting room. The next day he was back. If you have money or access to money the Jail will hold you until you pay them what they want. If your homeless the jail will not keep you. Thats our judicial system in the US.

  2. “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.
    Thomas Jefferson.

    1. @Bob Davis If they weren’t afraid of civilians being armed they wouldn’t be trying to hard to disarm everyone

    2. Thomas Jefferson also said ‘every American should be able to buy a newspaper daily and be able to UNDERSTAND it’s contents.’

      Did you read a newspaper today, Sunshine? THAT’S the mark of a real American

    1. @Bill Billerton no because of what it relates to, bearing arms is a completely different animal than free speech.

    2. @Bill Randleman if you can’t see the difference between guns an free speech idk what to say, free speech isn’t subject to change in relation to advances in technology or changes in society like guns are.

    3. @Guadalahonky yea because that had the same capacity to kill like ar your proving my point goof

    4. @Fabian Ortiz Free speech isn’t subject to change because of technology? What do you think you’re doing on here right now?

  3. I’ll tell you “why this keeps happening”… it’s because people suck, especially people involved in politics

  4. If some folks want to disarm, well, disarm, law enforcement and the military to make America safer the peace and joy will come to the world and we’ll be one big happy family…..not.

    1. @Super Dave a felony conviction stays with you for life regardless of the age you committed it at.

    2. @Rosco Schmosco not as a juvenile. Once you turn 18 your juvenile record is sealed. And can’t be used as a adult. That’s a law that needs to be changed. If you really want these shootings to stop.
      Your adult felonies follow you from 18 on.

  5. Jim Jordan is definately not from Kentucky! We have a lot of problems. But he is not one of them.

  6. As a law abiding citizen who owns guns, I refuse to concede my God given rights to make these idiots feel safer. These politicians are power hungry and are willing to do anything to get more.

  7. Limit law abiding citizens to protect themself the way they see fit? Animals that commit these horrific acts do not care about these laws…nor will it stop them from getting the weapons they use to commit them…USE YOUR COMMON SENSE GOVERNMENT…..

  8. I own firearms. I’m a law abiding citizen.
    I won’t be giving up my right to protect my life, my family, my property, and everything I’ve worked for for 40+ years.
    ~Jim Eagle

    1. @Bill Billerton I really don’t know what to say about what happened. I’ve never seen anything like this. The response, blocking people that wanted to help. Just makes no sense.

    2. If just one teacher had a north american arms revolver. This may not have ended this way. The teacher was disarmed.

  9. I understand the emotional reaction to pass laws that make you feel like something was accomplished. Politicians know this too, and they are using the emotion for votes.

    Probably the real solution is to harden schools, develop police tactics for active shooters, and perhaps raise eligibility age to 21 to purchase magazines in certain calibers over 10 rounds, that are used in shootings more frequently. I also understand the fight surrounding the issue of what you can do at age 18 and 21.

    1. @Guadalahonky you think anyone will abide by that? First you don’t even know who has what? Do you also not understand any control measures will bring record turnout for red voters ?

  10. I love how the woman who promotes abortion right up until the moment of giving birth talks about what’s a “sin and a shame on us”

  11. 0:22 Thank you Mr. Jordan!!!! It’s because of no touch torture and microwave harassment being used on unaware people

  12. “When politicians avoid and blames issues pertaining to the safety and well-being of their constituents, talk of unity was nothing more than a charade.”
    Alexander Tran

    1. cigarfeeler BLAMING IS VERY VERY DANGEROUS. It will only stop when Americans make America the UNITED STATES with ONE LAW for 50 states.

  13. “The Constitution shall NEVER be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” Samuel Adams
    “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic…” Joseph Story
    “No free man shall EVER be barred the use of arms.” Thomas Jefferson “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.” Thomas Jefferson

  14. The true Intent and Basis for the Second Amendment our Founders envisioned is manifesting before your eyes.
