  1. NRA is buying America from Donald Trump Presidency and the world know that Donald Trump selling America out.

    With a population of approximately 29 million, it’s quite a feat sharing a single brain cell.

  3. Look on the bright side. Maybe all those idiotic Texans will wipe each other out.

  4. I am glad to see a report on gun laws even though it is a negative one. Reporting on this topic had died down after El Paso and Dayton in a pattern of diminishing outrage that is as predictable as it is depressing. McConnell will use this fading of will once again to do nothing unless we keep the issue at the forefront of reporting.

    So this is how you start a real life battle royale where everyone has guns

  7. So the next mass shooter can carry his weapons in public before he shoots the next 10 to 20 people?

    • @Ettore Namias Is someone a good moderate Muslim until the second they blow themselves up?

    • trainwreck told ya exactly. They missing the point. The same laws for being able to obtain a firearm are still in place. I’m guessing they think loosening laws that wasn’t stopping anything in the first place will make it easier for someone to execute a mass shooting. When in actuality now it’s more regular people walking around that can stop a terror attempt

    • mako zero so what your saying is because it’s ok to carry a concealed weapon in more places it gives mass shooters a better chance execute their plan?

  8. Did NRA give some money to Texas Governor?

    • the nra is too liberal and does not do enough to defend Americans inalienable natural rights

    • @DeeZee the NRA gets money from members such as American troops and vets

    • And ‘Russians’… *lots and lots* of Russians. 💰🇷🇺💰

    • Ihave Aheadache | August 31, 2019 at 9:04 AM | Reply

      No the NRA was too busy ripping their members off, like that 5million dollar mansion. Settling sexual harassment cases, the NRA is a shell of it’s former self and needs to be disbanded. CROOKS ALL OF THEM!

    • @Molon Labe They went to Russia using those donations you are talking about, to court Russian Arms manufacturers. They bent over backwards to sponsor Maria Butina, a for real SPY. They spent 30 millions of those donation dollars to help an orange moron get elected. The CEO of the NRA has taken your precious donations and spent them like a drunken sailor; $100,000 vacation expenses, $274,000 in men’s wear, $5 million mansion in Dallas, and a million a year for consulting fees when he retires. He is not the only executive guilty of living lavishly off of your precious donations. The facts and figures are from NRA documents, so don’t bleat “Fake News”. And I just loved how you tried to play the patriotic shame game by making sure that you included “such as American troops and vets”. As if that gave you some kind of moral high ground. LOL. The NRA used to stand for something; Gun Safety. Now it is a corrrupted arm of an increasingly corrupted party that courts our enemies. How Patriotic is THAT??

  9. As a Texan born and raised I am not even sure what to say to this. I’m shocked at what is happening in the state house and senate. There is a large number of the population in the state that is looking to get politicians to strengthen gun laws and background checks.
    And before you @ me, I’m a republican and a military veteran of two wars. This is just backroom lobbyists dealing.

    More guns, more shootings. Great job, they made it even easier for the next tragedy. Bunch of idiots

    • @David M How do you know who’s the criminal when all have guns and start shooting cause a kid popped a paper bag and an old lady yells “SHOOTER! SHOOTER!”? Looks like you will have alot of fun in Texas soon.

    • We’ve *already written* TX’s new ‘tourism promo’… 📝
      “Texas – *Come for* the mass-shootings… *Stay in* our cemeteries!” 😒⚰👎

    • @Ral Deform “The last 15 mass shootings were by guys using legally bought guns.”

      Two of the three shootings mentioned in this clip were not legal purchases. One stole them, the other was prohibited two ways: domestic abuse and dishonorable discharge.

    • @Bob Smith My point on why it should be harder to get guns. THX

  11. Because the answer to gun violence, is of course more guns, and the answer to heroin addiction, is of course, more heroin.
    I think it’s pretty safe to say, that a lack of guns, is not our problem.

    The NRA and their bought politician’s should now be considered as a terrorist organisation

  13. Wannabe mass shooters in Texas are celebrating as we speak.

    • SuperCorrector1 | August 30, 2019 at 9:26 PM | Reply

      ​@mako zero What do you know about guns?
      You really believe actual gun owners can’t tell a shot from a bag?

    • @SuperCorrector1 Fireworks and misfire will do the job. Just imagine that awesome scenario. A weird guy with some firecrackers yells “SHOOTER” in a crowd and every armed law abiding citizen is finally becoming a hero. Only those who survive. The others are dead.

    • @mako zero – We recommend Corrector google ‘crowd panics/riots after mistaking ___ for gunfire’…and see *how many of them* are from ‘America’.
      It’d be easy enough to dismiss…if it weren’t *so* frightening for our families and friends. 🤨

    • what a beautiful country

    A person who sells heroin to make profit for himself praying on the misfortune of others is deemed a criminal ..yet a person can sell multiple assault rifles to make profit for himself to people that can devastate a community is just a tradesmen …..this equivalency makes no sense to me 🙁

  15. America must have the dumbest population on earth.. seriously

    • Bacon Dumpling | August 31, 2019 at 5:46 AM | Reply

      Someone Else: As you probably know, America is a land of immigrants, so by your logic you’re insulting the whole world. But you apparently don’t understand generalization, nor how the American political system works and who votes and gets to vote. How ironic, talk about ignorance and lack of education.

    • says a Subject

    • @darksaint0124 popular vote does not pick the president

    • @speks36 Tell that to the people who survived the Nazi Holoacaust

    • @Molon Labe do you think I don’t know how elections work? Also, the President is normally chosen by popular referendum. It is only in the modern era with Bush and Trump that the electoral college has reared its ugly head. It’s almost like their policies aren’t popular so they need a combination of archaic rules and voter suppression to have a chance at being President.

  16. the NRA has made Americans paranoid and created the itchy trigger finger.

  17. ‘This sauce is too salty, lets fix it with more salt.’ Thats how dumb this is.

  18. Why not just airdrop guns in every day or so, and who ever gets them first gets to be the hero RL PUBG

    So glad there’s never a reason for me to go to Texas. What year is it there, anyway?
    Texas: Where “Evolution” is a four letter word.
    Texas: Brought to you by the NRA.
