79 Comments on "The NRA’s New Warning For President Donald Trump | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC"

  1. I am so confused. What does Vladimir want Trumplestiltskin to do?

  2. Trump caves 100% by GOP sycophants

  3. I bet everyone in my town a donut that neither tRump or Moscow Mitch will do
    anything about enacting new curbs regarding gun sales. When I win I’m gonna
    be up to my eyeballs in yummy donuts.

  4. Unfortunately Trump is a puppet for the NRA. They hold a huge amount of power in your country. Obama tried tirelessly to get gun reform when he was in office and even though the majority of the American people were with him on this, nothing happened. I fear nothing will change and more innocent. people will die.

      My husband use to say it’s better to have a gun. then not need it then to not have a gun and need it..and he also said when guns are out law only out laws will have the guns..As far a being a gun owner I gave my guns to my daughter and her husband as i no longer needed them after my husband past away .

      @snoop alert Ok Einstein!! When the term is used as I did, it means that the person is a con artist or a scammer. Of course, you don’t know that because you’re not familiar with the English language.
      Comrade Ivan!!!

    • @Antonio Montana you still don’t know anything about business so that makes you the con artist

      @snoop alert Never mind, I didn’t realize I was talking to a ten year old!!
      No need to reply. I know you’ll say I’m the ten year old.

    • @Antonio Montana no I don’t even think you’re that good your platitudes have no basis in fact whatsoever

    • Antonio Montana | August 8, 2019 at 11:41 PM | Reply

      @snoop alert Just cut it out Ivan, you are making an absolute fool of yourself!!!

  6. *The AmeriKKKan Empire, where guns are more important than education or health care.*

    • @Eric Rich oh, the “South”. Do you mean where ‘people’ defend pedo’s and where nazi flags fly tall beside ‘rebel’ flags?
      *You are a ‘TOOL’ if you think laws to improve background checks to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill “screws” law abiding people.*

      Amerikkkan? You mean America where anyone of any appearance can do or have anything they want? If you want something work from it, it’s not going to be handed to you by other people’s sweat. Also, how does your comment make any sense? How are guns more important than health or education in the states? Provide some facts. Health and education are paid for by our tax dollars for a lot of Americans to have access to them. That isn’t the case for guns

      @tracy bird Trump education? From poor immigrant to president of the United States? Please. Facts > personal views

    • 好说好说 | August 9, 2019 at 8:34 AM | Reply

      @Eric Rich chilling facts!

  7. 80% of people strongly support universal background checks and it still doesn’t get done. With Moscow Mitch blocking gun legislation in the senate, I doubt that it will. If you ever needed proof of corruption in politics, look no further than this.

    Ditch Moscow Mitch
    Putin’s Bmitch

  9. Took New Zealand 6 days to pass an assault weapons ban…. difference between AMERICA and New Zealand?
    No NRA in New Zealand

      @DJB You don’t have rights because you didn’t fight for them like USA did.

    • voodooblue61 blue | August 9, 2019 at 10:51 AM | Reply

      @DJB Well- not too many people are shooting off cannons now. Semi automatic weapons can mow people down in seconds- that needs to be stopped. Also, the world has changed a bit since the constitution was written and the laws need to change.

    • @U.S.S. Scambalam oh. He made them. That explains everything. Lol. I see it all now. I don’t even know what your pop, who once upon a time might have been involved in the production of nuclear weapons, though I doubt it, has to do with Americans arming themselves with weapons such as the ones that might be banned in America, are banned in New Zealand and are banned in most developed nations on earth.

    • did Australia pass a weapons ban too ?

  10. Moscow-Mitch not gonna do anything unless GOP fire him

    The NRA should have no say in American politics! That’s insane! 😡

    • Things might change if Mitch McConnell’s grandchildren get turned into crimson mist right in front of him by a gun nut with an AK. Maybe.

    • @npc’s everywhere Remember the Bundy Ranch standoff with the Feds in Oregon. The first time that I know of that the Federal law enforcement agencies retreated from an opened standoff. They stopped dead in their tracks when they realised that THEY had sniper teams overlooking them from superior positions, prepared to defend the ranchers. Who was the primary makeup of the ranchers defence force? The people that came of their own free will prepared to defend the ranchers rights against the United States Government.Nearly 1000 of the protester/supporters were former and retired special forces, and other military service members. They were patriots. True patriots are not patriot to the Federal government, they are sworn defenders and patriots to the constitution, and the rights and liberties it provides us all. Our army is an army of volunteers, our service men and women serve because they believe in what that document stands for, what we as a nation stand for, atleast did stand for. You can never turn that army against its people. It would dissolve and splinter into hundreds of factions. IT WOULD BECOME THE EXACT REASON AND PURPOSE OUR FOREFATHERS INSISTED ABOVE ALL ELSE THE 2nd AMENDMENT is absolutely necessary to keep a free democracy FREE.

    NRA has politicians in their pockets. Disgusting

    When the 2nd adment was put on paper they only had muskets.

      @Mark G. Yes, my Master! 😁

    • Catfish Troll | August 9, 2019 at 7:10 AM | Reply

      @Bob Grendel the gov. Has armored vehicles. Rockets, fighter jets, where do we purchase ours.

    • @Catfish Troll it would be a guerrilla war not conventional. It’s a deterrent you think American soldiers want to fire on own people. It is also UNCONSTITUTIONAL to use military against civilians. You should read up on American law. U.S.A. got their hat handed to them in Vietnam again guerrilla war.

      @Bob Grendel I was a soilder you may not correct.

  16. How can NRA stand in the way of government? So the tail wags the dog in USA.

    • NRA along with other large corporations who provide huge campaign contributions to candidates in order to assure that they will not be bothered by government interference.

    • The NRA is funded by millions of gun owners. The NRA is the people

    • @Robert Remp The NRA also receives “donations” from foreign countries. These “donations” are then passed on to the GOP. NRA is the loophole that allows foreign entities to bribe American polititians to do their bidding.

    • @Robert Remp Nah, the NRA is funded by gun manufacturers. The lifetime membership check grampa sent to get a magazine is a tiny fraction of their wealth. Never mind the paycheck they got from Russia not so long ago?

  17. Not a word from ted Cruz or did I miss his outrage regarding the deaths in Texas.

  18. Mike Caldwell | August 8, 2019 at 6:48 PM | Reply

    30 million Dollar pay off says it all. This country is so corrupt.

  19. Wow. The NRA must be really paying off a lot of Mortgages in the Senate.

  20. Dollar to a dime the NRA does background checks on those they employ!!!
