  1. Those with privilege won’t react until THEIR loved ones are affected. Period.

    • I dont understand what you mean there. Who are these privileged people that are not affected and therefore not reacting?

    #MoscowMitch you don’t work for the President you work for the People, If you’re not up to the challenge then step down.

    So mass shootings aren’t tragedies contrary to sensible fact… they are just theatrics… so says moscow mitch

    • They are tragedies. But tragedies are a fact of life that cannot be legislated away.

    • @JoeyFiveandDimes this seems to be a new kind of crazy conspiracy i havent heard yet. You believe that mass shootings are somehow organized by a network of people? If im missunderstanding please correct me, but thats how your post come across. And somehow organized by the NRA? I feel you are somewhat missinformed as to what the NRA is and what would be advantageous to them

    • @Josh Colby i think we should abolish political parties all together. That would go leaps and bounds in the direction of limiting political corruption

  4. This is stupid, they are not taking guns away they are just wanting to make sure the wrong people do not have easy access to them. Is like they want this to continue.

  5. Moscow Mitch hurt his arm when fisting Pence’s backside over the holidays. Yes, you heard it here.

  6. Australia hasn’t had a mass shooting since Port Arthur in ’94. That’s 25 years ago people. Ban semi auto high capacity mag. guns. These are weapons of war that have no place in hunting or home defence.

    • @hillbilly beer dranker BS FAKE NEWS

    • @Dan Forster i feel like your trolling after that fake news comment. You can deny actual shootings reported by your own press and government. If thats your standard then i deny all the shpotings reported by mine and the US is the safest place to live in the world. Wow, i feel much better about where i live now. Is this how you do it, just pretend and feel good? I can see the apeal

  7. trump and mc connell are owned by high dollar evil people👺

      @Tessmage Tessera Haha b!tch please, I’ve been an NRA member since 81′ now you sit your dumba$$ down and shut your b1tch a$$ up.

      Typical republican reply. Very eloquent.

    • @Exculpatory Shōgun sorry. But the NRA actually only does what is profitable to them in the end. They had to make a decision years ago as to whether or not they agreed that americans had the right to own handguns. Their maun objective is to be tied to the gun regulation process essentially giving them a cartel over your rights. They do fight to push back on some anti gun legislation, but thats just because they need something to regulate. I know it sucks to hear, but trust me from a place where the NRA has done little to nothing, they arent in it for you.

      Hmm gun owners are evil then?

  8. I tell you what.. Black people, go out enmass and get a legal registered fire arm and I bet you MONEY they will do something then..😑😒

    • Not necessary- just vote!

      @arthur riley Your vote doesn’t count when elections are rigged. Think I’m lying? Watch this HBO documentary:

    • They do, every day. I dont know what point your trying to make, but it seems kind of racist. Black people do go out and buy registered guns by the tens and hundreds of thousands all the time. Your statement seems to imply that black americans only purchase illegal guns and thus makes them all criminals by default, its very offensive. I could be misunderstanding how you mean to say it, but thats how it comes across

      They aren’t registered in the majority of the U.S. so it is odd that you say registration there is no registration there is no licensing in the majority of states there is no federal requirement. Learn the topic before you comment.

  9. I have only this to say for McTurtle…
    (clears throat and press start on the cd-player)
    (cue music)
    “MOVE Mitch! Get out the way! Get out the WAY”
    (music keeps playing)

  10. #moscowMitch your day of reckoning is coming!

  11. Win 2 or 3 of thees congressman’s Kids or family member gets killed then something well happen. The devil owns them

  12. i was waiting for someone to yank on the bag on Massacre Mitch’s neck.

    You don’t have to have the President’s signature. If the House and Senate pass a bill that the President vetoes, it returns to the House and Senate. If the House and Senate then vote and each pass the bill by a 2/3 vote, the bill becomes law without the President’s signature. McConnell is just afraid that he will anger the Orange One if he lets the Senate vote on a bill that the Orange One doesn’t like. Since the Orange One refused to sign a bill he agreed to for the country’s budget, what makes Moscow Mitch think that even if the Orange One agrees to sign, that he actually will. Moscow Mitch needs to grow a pair and let the Legislative Branch function as it should. Moscow Mitch has to go!

    • No. What he is doing is towing tye party line. People mostly dont know that to be in a political party you dont just have to call yourself a Democratic or Republican, you have to pay a fee that goes up depending on your political position and agree to certain party positions. As a Republican if he starts agreeing with certain laws and regulations that the party doesnt like, he will be kicked out, im pretty sure the Democrats wouldnt take him after that, and running as an independent is a sucker bet 99% of the time. This is the political game that politicians are forced to play that makes us hate them. We need a deep political change to male progress, not just assume 50% of the population are bad people

  14. What do you expect? Old Mitch is in the pocket of the NRA and Russia. He needs to go

    • I dont think too many politicuans are “in the pocket of the NRA” the way you think. The NRAs main political bias is for gun control, but for it in a way that intrinsically ties them in the process. The NRA is the group that pushed for background checks and for licensing. But they hold the key to getting your license. Anyone who get a permit to carry or buy a handgun has paid the NRA whether they are a member or not because they helped right the laws that says you have to go through them. Most pokiticiams are just towing the party line, not being bought. Because of they stray from the party philosophy they will be kicked out. Thats both Republican and Democrats. You dont get to just call yourself one or the other when running. You have to pay a members fee annually and agree to certain party positions. They do it because running independent is almost a guaranteed loss.

  15. As I stated before Mitch said he would’nt take a vote on anything unless he knew the president would sign it. Does the Congress make the laws. Mitch must go.

  16. Liberal doublespeak language: enhanced background checks = gun registration; Red Flag = gun confiscation and/or death of gun owner; Hi-Capacity Magazine ban = incremental gun confiscation; Mandatory gun buyback = gun confiscation. State governments have already waged war on their citizens with similar tactics passing these unconstitutional laws and nobody did anything. Now the government is more emboldened to roll out the same across all states. Lets hope the same spirit of Americans exists now as it did in 1776. If not we will just go down in history as another failed “Socialist Utopia” like Venezuela. Now you know how once prosperous countries turn into cesspools and in the extreme as history warns us that governments commit democide.

  17. The hearing protection act is gun control both parties should get behind if they are serious about sensible gun control legislation.

  18. The public is calling for action…..BIG F##KING DEAL.

    i thought that the senate, house of rep and the oval office were designed to check policy, not to cover each of their faults.. maybe i learned it wrong.

    Gun control is for the poor while the rich elites retain body guards. Say no to taking the rights of Americans!
