1. No prayers or condolences can bring back the innocent children and adults that lost their lives in Texas mass shootings

    1. @Bri 033 The Battle at Wounded Knee is a significant battle in American history, as it put an end to the Indian Wars and is marked as the last official defeat of the Native Americans. But what’s not taught in history lessons is that Wounded Knee was one of the first federally backed gun confiscations in the history of the United States, and it ended in the massacre of nearly 300 unarmed people.
      We did no gun confiscations

  2. If it is required that a person in the USA must be 21 to buy a pack of cigarettes than the same age requirement should be required to buy any gun..

    1. @ajs11201 or Jeanine Pirro, for that matter. Nobody, regardless of what position they or their spouse hold, should be treated with kid gloves. In fact, they should be punished as severely as any ordinary person would be.

    2. ​@123a The “train bands” were organized and overseen by the local township’s officials. They were NOT ad hoc groups doing their own thing. The militias were called for service by the town, the colony/state, or by Congress. Today, they are akin to the each state’s National Guard NOT the Proud Boys or Oath Keepers.

  3. As a former certified police officer out of manatee county Florida, we were trained to go in and stop further action by a subject who is a active shooter utilizing deadly force immediately. I am absolutely gutted the chief of police and officers alike did not make the right calls here. I do thank the USA border officers ignoring the chief refusing his orders going into the school to take the proper actions. In my opinion, the chief needs to be terminated and arrested held accountable on 21 counts of involuntary manslaughter charges just based on his call alone misguiding his officers. The officers should be made to do a mandatory *non paid* retraining course for their failure to override the chiefs orders in which each officer could of done the moment reports came in regarding anyone shot as deadly force was indeed justified at that time forward. The school resource officer on duty should be terminated instantly and face accountability much like the chief also.

    Children should feel safe always at school and never face such terrible situations. As a father and as mentioned a former law enforcement officer. My heart much like the world’s is broken over this situation may all impacted regardless if you known those murdered say prayers for all those whom lost loved ones of these little angels and may they rest in peace. Send condolences to the families as well.


    2. @John Tudor I know he is a brave and selfless man. NOt everybody has to go overseas to serve!

      “You know, if you’re young, and in this era, and if you have any guilt about not having gone to Vietnam, we have our own Vietnam — it’s called the dating game,” Trump said to Stern in a 1993 interview. “Dating is like being in Vietnam. You’re the equivalent of a soldier going over to Vietnam.”

      Then, six years later he said he was a “brave soldier” for avoiding STDs during his single years. And he’s right! He said women’s vaginas are “potential landmines” and said “there’s some real danger there.”
      “It’s amazing, I can’t even believe it. I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world, it is a dangerous world out there. It’s like Vietnam, sort of. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave solider,”

      Of course I believe him, Trump never lies!!!

  4. If gun control didn’t work, why did the shooter wait til his 18th birthday to buy the guns? Same as in Buffalo. Raise it to 21 to start.

    1. @ajs11201 there’s was no officer at the elementary school or security guards stop spreading lies

    2. @Billy Bob I’m pretty sure he would have gotten in anyway. Last I heard there was an officer but he was driving around the parking lot. The first thing I heard that there was one but he got shot by Salvador—I know this was a lie. So was the guard in his car in the parking lot (maybe on lunch break—they deserve a lunch break) or was he not there at all? I don’t know if we’ll ever get the true story on that one, I hope we do. The teacher that left the door open, did the wind blow the door open to where the hinge locked in the open position and she was too short or too weak to shut the door? I hope this teacher is being supported she could have never imagined or intended this and could be suicidal (I hope not). Or was there someone in cahoots with the shooter that opened the door and was dressed similar to a teacher?

    3. @Fabiola Flores 4 school resource officers for 10 schools.
      Schools should have dedicated school resource officers and single and thus secure points of entry.
      The shooter walked in and nobody was there with a gun to challenge him.
      Politicians are protected better than our schools.

    4. @Billy Bob I agree completely, I’d just like to know if the guard was in the parking lot (I’ve heard 3 different stories). Guards get bored and walk around, then there’s bathroom breaks and lunch breaks. More guards are definitely something that needs to be on the table as well as excellent vetting, clear expectations and constant mental health checks (I’ve worked in the schools for over 20 years and have witnessed 5 strong teachers end up in a psychiatric assylum). 2 or 3 were seeing demons 2 of the 3 said some of the kids were really demons. These teachers were not on drugs, they had lack of sleep and were overworked beyond belief because they were excellent teachers…excellent teachers get the hardest kids, which is rewarding but it’s a lot of work. Not to mention teachers go kind of nuts when their spouses cheat on them because they work too many hours. And I’m not talking about all the elementary teachers on antidepressants. I know you are talking about guards not teachers. I’m adding the teacher info for those in favor of teachers. Carrying weapons. And you’d better pay the guards real well too so they can’t be bought or bribed to be sick at a strategic time…that’s what happens in 3rd world countries when you don’t pay well.

  5. What doesn’t make sense is the shooters mother saying”He had his reasons,don’t judge him”!And what do you do ,you victimize the criminal.Disgusting.

    1. @TRUTH SPEAKER Maybe this mother hit a hot button or two when she said, more than once, that her son had his reasons for slaughtering 19 children and two teachers. She may not have meant it as an actual justification, but it was a damned incendiary thing to say. Asking for forgiveness wasn’t a terribly bright idea, either. We all understand that most mothers are going to love their children no matter what. We’re not stupid. Now just wasn’t the time to shove it in our faces, and never, ever in the way she did it. “He had his reasons.”

      Dude, we are sick of watching children get murdered. This time it happened with a full compliment of law enforcement officers standing around with their thumbs up their butts, even as the children themselves were calling 911 for help. Then mommy came along to tell us all about how murder boi had his reasons. And then you come along to judge people for not feeling compassion for her. I don’t think you appreciate our anger. We are next-level pissed off right now.

    2. That is terrible. Yes he’s a criminal. How did he get to be a criminal? Therevwill always be some criminals. Unless we are willing to address this, we are doomed to world of more and more criminals.

  6. We will talk about this situation until the next time this happens. And we will talk about that situation until the next one happens…🤦🏽‍♀️


  7. Preventing a violent person or an emotionally disturbed person from purchasing a firearm isn’t a punishment any more than is preventing a blind person from driving a car. The needs of society outweigh the desire of an individual to purchase a weapon of war. Crenshaw is being disingenuous.

    1. @Vancedthobe Hill I agree with everything after your first paragraph. Because there is way to track buying bullets in that manner. It would be part of a red flag law…they have tec and the know how to track us for everything.

    2. A red flag law would’ve alerted officials that this murderer legally bought: two AR15 style “sporting rifles”, 60 high capacity (30 round) magazines, 1100 rounds of ammunition, and body armor all in the course of one week.
      Raising the age to buy a “sporting rifle” ASSAULT rifle to 21 or 25, would’ve assured that he couldn’t buy these weapons legally.

  8. This keeps happening and thoughts and prayers still haven’t helped. We need action! VOTE THEM OUT!!!!¡


  9. At 5 minutes: Dan Crenshaw doesn’t think there should be a red flag law. So, and 18 year old goes into a gun shop, buys 2 assault rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition and that is not a red flag? That should have been reported to the police as suspicious. That’s minimum.

    1. The Battle at Wounded Knee is a significant battle in American history, as it put an end to the Indian Wars and is marked as the last official defeat of the Native Americans. But what’s not taught in history lessons is that Wounded Knee was one of the first federally backed gun confiscations in the history of the United States, and it ended in the massacre of nearly 300 unarmed people.
      Never again 🗽

    2. @J S Cute question. An AR15 type rifle, what people like you call a “sporting rifle” is an assault rifle. It is a weapon of war, just like an M4, M16, AK47, SA80 and the like. They were designed to kill people. They are assault rifles. But, you can call them “sporting rifles” if you want to.

  10. I’m surprised the GOP hasn’t turned around and say “Let’s lower the drinking age and smoking age. That is infringing on their freedom.” 😂

    1. I’m surprise party loyalty is still a “thing”.
      I live in California
      and nobody, except politicians & teachers
      Are loyal to parties anymore or even trust them.

  11. Note to any cowards posing as cops- when you hear gunfire near children, you run TOWARD the gunfire.

    Zero respect.


    2. @George J Thank you not only for your service, but understanding the sacrifice of those sworn to protect.

    3. @Truck Stop Media I get it’s it’s, freaking scary man. The first thing they tell you in the Army when you are doing BD6 is if you are first through the door, you are probably gonna die. But that’s the nature of the beast. If one person has to die to save 2 dozen kids or even a dozen kids, so be it. That’s your job.

  12. If I had it my way, 25 is the most sensible age. Your brain is fully developed. But I’d rather have a 21 year old, who is old enough to drink, to hold any firearm than an 18 year old where their brains and hormones are definitely not there. Or even be active/retired (with good standing) military to own higher grade weapons. All I’m saying is that maturity, being of sound mind, and accountability should be the norm to own any guns.

    1. In all seriousness why not raise the age of adulthood to 21. It was only lowered to 18 so they could draft people. Maybe we shouldn’t be sending 18 year olds to war, let them grow up a bit more.

    2. @Corey Sneed the problem with military grade is it implies a rifle looks a certain way. Ballistically the ar15 round is not as powerful as a 308 round and those can be had in semiautomatic with detachable magazines that have a wood stock look up the m1a. You would have to say all semiautomatic rifles couldn’t be bought by an 18 year old. All semiautomatic weapons have the same firing rate which is as fast as you can pull the trigger.


  13. There should be no minimum age to buy an AR-15 or any other assault weapon because they shouldn’t be sold to the public in the first place. No other country has this obscene obsession with guns besides the United States and the result is far safer countries and less gun murders.It’s simple,less guns,less violent crime and murders.But I guess freedom in the United States means the right to wear bullet proof vests and dodging bullets while buying food or learning math,or doing just about anything in the country.

    1. Baby steps is better than nothing till someone puts forth an actual plan raising age is a star

    2. @David Millan “Yes what happened is beyond sad….”

      And yet not…..quite….enough for you to not want more assault weapons and, because this is a consequence, more children not returning home from school

  14. The Republicans wont allow any restrictions on guns. You’ll need to vote them out for any change to take place. It’s simply insane.

    1. @Yulio Font You’re right the rest of the world has mental illness too. And the difference is they address is unlike here. Stop trying to say “unrestricted access” as if a random nobody can go buy a gun off the shelf in Walmart lol. Being able to buy a gun is a lengthy process. You saying you need more laws is laughable. Especially given Chicago has the most strict gun laws in the country yet the highest crime rate, along with California where the gun laws are also as strict.

  15. Everything Sen Roland said made sense. All of it. And the guy still has his guns, no one took them from him.

  16. So Crenshaw’s reasoning can be analogous to a criminal being known to buy a truck full of fentanyl but not arrested on the spot because the law wants to see if he sells it.

  17. When I was twenty, I was married, owned my own home, and had a child. We wanted to rent a larger car for a road trip, as a family. We were told that we could not do so because we were not twenty-five. I told the agent that we own a home and own our vehicle outright, no financing. She said sorry; they don’t believe under twenty-five is responsible enough to take a rental car. No longer twenty and now married a quarter-century, this ease of purchasing such weapons at eighteen is hard for me to reason with, reflecting on that disproportionate experience. Beyond frustrating.


    2. @Sherman Dudley no I will never make any changes I will use the ar 15 or any other one of my guns if I feel the need and I have been a state certified firearms safety instructor and I’m a veteran and my father was a veteran

    3. @Darth Technologies Are you a member of a well regulated militia, necessary for the defense of the state?

      If not, then you have *no* right to a firearm whatsoever per the constitution. Crazy how that happens.

    4. @Adumu that was defined as an adult who would help protect state and your own property. So yes I am. We all are.

  18. GOP sympathy card: With a thought and a prayer we stand here in sorrow. We’ll spread more guns in silence tomorrow.

  19. Avid gun owner here: our system is insanely stupid. When I went to buy my first gun, I just wanted a simple handgun for home defense and because shooting can be fun, but that’s when I was informed that I could buy something like an AR or AK47 that day, but couldn’t get a handgun until 21. I remember specifically commenting on how absurd it was that I could buy an Ak47 that day, no license required in Utah, just a short background check and I was out the door with about 1000 rounds and an AK47 about 20 minutes later. I did sell that gun a few years later in favor of a lever action, but the fact that I was able to walk in at 18 and buy that gun with so much ammo THAT DAY is something I often think about and just how crazy the system is. At the bare minimum we need universal background checks and waiting periods, but we also should have licensing or permit requirements to show competence and that someone isn’t a threat.

    1. @Edward Dragon 96 Daniel’s defense the gun that cost almost $2,000 that this last Shooter had two of has a contract with the government and they purchased them but as Citizens we can only buy the semi-automatic version.
      It’s not the shape of a gun that has anything to do with its use it is the fact whether it is a fully automatic or a semi-automatic or a single shot that makes the difference.
      Citizens are not allowed to have machine gun type AK-47 they can only have semi automatics

    2. @Auto king
      Not a single piece of your comment makes any sense.

      Going back to the actuall topic:
      There are more AK clones out there than just the Norinco 56S
      Century Armes is making an AK 47 clone, Kalaschnikov USA is making AK clones, the real Kalaschnikov company from Russia made semo auto only rifles for export with the 100 series.
      Not to mention that if I remember correctly you can in fact buy an actual AK 47 that had its full auto permanently deactivated.

    3. @Edward Dragon 96 here in Nevada you can buy an actual AK but this is the exception to the rule and it cannot be carried around and there are many restrictions and Licensing.
      There is not a Kay’s sold as a full automatic option available.
      The ATF was searching a warrant on Waco Texas people looking for the installation of a kit to make them 56s into a fully automatic option.
      It is not an option legal to the General Public

    4. @Simulation K as a registered Democrat I would tell you that crazy people are crazy people and that includes the people running our government and the sheriff department in that town and in Parkland Florida .

  20. While all of this talk is understandable, what is happening with those cops who allowed kids to die? Have they been arrested for aiding a criminal yet?
