  1. It’s time to ban, buyback, confiscate and reduce these mass killing rifles from the streets. Gotta make it harder for any human of any race/mental state or motive to get access to these mass killing rifles.

  2. Sick and tired of hearing
    It’s the shooters
    “Right” to carry a weapon
    Capable of horrific things like this …

    We need change !!! Our leaders aren’t protecting anyone but the NRA!

    • Gop and Moscow mitch are responsible

      NRA & PHARMA have legalized mass shootings.  And we allow our gov to support that thru lobbyist’s money!!!  Yay!!!   Therefore, we, as a country, support vehemently the mass shooting of our communities by young white men who we give guns and antidepressants.  Fun for all, huh?!!!  Gooooooooo 2nd ammendment!  Goooooooo PHARMA!!!!  Wow….ya’ll gonna vote someday? 

      Voting in Australia is the law…we can’t keep up with Australia?

  3. I am glad I live in California. Look at the difference between a state like California and Texas. California has strict gun control laws, and we have very few mass shootings. Look at Texas, a state with lax gun control laws. At least, I don’t have to live in terror.

  4. What is it going to take to make this madness end?! How many more lives will be lost before the US government puts some real laws in place to stop the wrong people from getting and using guns?!

    • It’s going to take voting gun control advocates into Congress and the Presidency. It won’t happen until they’re in the majority. I’m not holding my breath.

  5. A TRUE LEADER HAS THE CONFIDENCE TO STAND ALONE
    AND THE COURAGE TO MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS
    THE COMPASSION TO LISTEN TO THE NEEDS OF OTHERS
    HE DOES NOT SET OUT TO BE A LEADER
    BUT BECOMES ONE BY THE EQUALITY OF HIS ACTIONS
    AND THE INTEGRITY OF HIS INTENT….D.M
    THIS IS AMERICA’S CHOSEN PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP !

    • Shoot him in the head

      Trump is a Filthy Racist Pig.

    I live in Nebraska where it’s easier to buy an assault rifle than it is to rent a car. I can go to a gun show and buy an assault rifle with just a driver’s license same day and I can buy a hundred round clip with it. I bought a 45 caliber handgun at a gun show in Cheyenne Wyoming without a driver’s license or any paperwork at all. I had a friend in Colorado that traded his Wii for a 9 mm handgun no paperwork no driver’s license. I just can’t believe more guns is the answer to this problem

  11. Well… thanks to MSNBC now I know: 1. The hurricane is Trump’s fault. 2. The sky fell. 3. The shootings are Trump’s fault. and 4. L O’Donnell lives in Candy Land with a Russian informant, which; it Trump’s fault.

    • I didn’t hear any of that drivel ypu just said but what is true is that it is republicans fault. The had the opportunity to change things after sandy hook. And guess what. They blocked the legislation. That’s just fact. Now again they have the chance and guess what is and will happen. They’ll block anything from.happening because thier pockets are lined with blood money.

    Well now it’s time for Democrats and Republicans to get together and do something about this, I’m a conservative and my son has one of these high-powered rifles and he is willing to turn his in, I always told him what do you need that for, you can’t hunt with those, hopefully other could
    Good citizens will be willing to do the same, too many shootings, it has to stop, and I hope people like my son would do the same , and ask for people like Beto stop using these people who have died for his political gain!!

  13. Greed over lives. Money over lives. Metal over lives.
    Oh well, the only question now is, who’s next? We can say this with confidence, because Trump, Moscow Mitch and republicans in Congress have made it abundantly clear, that greed, the NRA, and money, is more important than your life and even your kid’s life. So….whose next?  What will be the name of the next school I wonder. Whose kids will be next I wonder? Who will be the next parents to have to bury their child I wonder? 

    There is at least one Republican in Congress who finally gets it. He finally understands. That Republican is Congressman Mike Turner of Ohio. Mike Turner announced his support for a ban on sales of “military style weapons” following the deadly mass shooting in Dayton Ohio after he discovered his daughter came close to being one of the casualties.

    “I believe these are necessary steps forward in protecting our country and a testament to American values, which include protecting human life,” Turner, said in a statement

    Turner, a Dayton native, said he would also support legislation placing restrictions on high-capacity magazines as well as so-called red-flag laws, which allow police and family members to “quickly identify people who are dangerous and remove their ability to harm others.

    Turner made this statement after he found out that his teenage daughter was across the street from the shooting that night and she had just missed being out on the street when the shooting started by just seconds.

    So now all of a sudden he cares. It took his daughter nearly being one of the victims for him to finally get it. He should have gotten it after Vegas, Orlando, and after Parkland. He should have cared back in 2012 when 20 babies, 6 and 7 years of age, were cut down with an assault rifle.
    So…..whose going to be next?

    • This must be a record for the slowest Trump hater response. It took 10 minutes before Trump-haters started to show up

  14. Moscow Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, will you both going to do anything’s about it or are your both still going to works for NRA not for Americans? All of these killing are on your watch.

  15. Hi, anyone else find it weird that all these shootings are happening while Congress is on summer break and the first thing they’re going to talk about when they come back is gun-control?

  16. Republicans in Congress clearly aren’t working for, or representing the will of the people. Instead people like Moscow Mitch are representing the desires and interests of corporations and special interests groups like The NRA, which has resulted in the will of the people being completely subverted. How else would you explain the fact that at least 90% of Americans want to see new gun laws passed, and yet republicans refuse to do anything. Mitch McConnell refuses to even allow a vote on anything regarding gun legislation. 
    What this all amounts to his republicans giving the middle finger to at least 90% Americans,  and basically saying “F*** you guys!!! We don’t care what you want, and we don’t care how many children are gunned down in schools with assault rifles, we are going to do whatever the NRA tells us to do.”
