  • Tenacious Dmitchell says:

    Guess will have to endure more mass killings and maybe some politicians family members be among the fallen before anything gets done. Mental health of Americans is getting worse by the year, we most work together to be bring resources to this National problem.

  • All the focus on background checks is distracting. Thorough background checks are a small and necessary piece of what needs to be a larger and more comrehensive look at policies that can help curb gun violence in the United States.

  • Gricelda Vargas says:

    Steven miller, trump, trump's racist administration and fox news anchors and also the ones on radio that have the same kind of racist rhetoric should also be charged with murder for inciting their racist views on already crazy and racist people. They should all go to jail for at least 20 to 75 years for all the pain that they have caused. They should also be stripped off their precious belongings and those items be given to the families that need it the most.

  • and may i add what Cohen said about Trump that he doesnt directly tell you what he wants but he indirectly insinuates what people should do. The rhetorics he had said repeatedly day in and day out, that is a command to the people whoever will do it. The hate and division every time Trumps mouth opens every single day. That created hate, that was put to action. That shooter wasnt mentally ill.

  • What did Obama do? 39 Mass Shootings under his watch. He did an EO that stopped geriatrics from getting guns while violating the constitution.

  • Alfred Degiorgio says:

    For once, Trump has told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth; the recent massacres of innocent American lives were due to mental illness. It's called “DONALD J TRUMP NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER (NPD ON STEROIDS!)”

  • Funny how rifles are only used in 400 homicides a year and AR type are less than half. Pistols are used in 80% of all gun deaths. 11, 984 non suicide Gun deaths in 2018 and 400 involved rifles or 3.3%. Knives were used 1,591 times, Blunt objects 467 times and hands 669 times. 1,478 gun deathswere self defense or 12.4% Obamas $10M CDC gun study stated that guns were used for defensive purpose to stop crime between 500K and 3M times which I am sure you have never seen.

  • Trump knows these mass shootings are being orchestrated by the powers that be but of course he cant say that. The real threat is the average Joe's in our neighborhood thats high off meth and crack but they dont get the tv time cause the only thing that may stop them IS guns for protection. High power assault weapons are not common in real life and they should be banned in my opinion but 2nd Ammendment advocates dont want it tampered with. Im a gun owner and I hope I never have to use it. Most legit gun owners think like I do Im sure. Its the people that say take the guns from law abiding citizens and put them in the hands of only government officials is crazy. Cause the criminals that prey on us will still get access and the government that cant be trusted will become criminals that prey on us

  • No one wants to truly address the matter of American social structures of the modern era. Instead looking for blame and excuses.
    The rifles, knifes,drugs,opiates,alcohol are just tools and crutches in a broken society

  • Backround checks is only the first step to fixing the problem with mass shootings

    there also needs to be a law that requires a person to by a gun to get a license for that gun and training to use it before they can take it home with them specially with assault rifles like AR15 and Ak47 and similar

    There should also be a law that says that if you own such a weapon you are personally responsible to keep it locked up in a save place, like a weapons locker and the safety pin taken out and kept in a different place in the house as well as the ammunition when you are not using it.
    And if someone steals it from your house and uses it in a murder or mass shooting YOU as the owner of the weapon are personally responsible and can face prison time and you may loose your right to have a weapon license for the rest of your life for not keeping it safe .

    This way people would think both once and twice before getting such a weapon and if they already have one they may want to get rid of it by turning it over to the police.
    This would not effect responsible gun owners at all, only irresponsible weapon owners who let there weapons lying around there home for anyone to steal.

  • Record low unemployment calls off Iran airstrikes walks across the DMZ for peace. Worst Hitler ever man. By the way the US is number 66 on the worlds mass shooting list. NRA who?

  • I almost genuinely feel sorry for people that are so dumb that they still believe anything Trump says. Then I remember that they are the reason we're in this mess to begin with. No quarter.

  • More lip service from Trump and the GOP.
    The NRA needs to banned from giving campaign donations then see how fast there would be new gun laws.

  • richard oliver says:

    He specifically chose El Paso because they don’t allow conceal carry within the city limits. El Paso is the only city in Texas you can conceal carry within the city limits! 😂🤣🤪🤦‍♂️ sry Uncle Al your wrong!

  • Trump, your a lier, you lied about background checks at Sandy hook elementary school you lie about everything. You've done nothing of value for the people of this country.
    North Korea less nothing but a photo-op, while you weakened us and South Korea. You gave tax breaks to the wealthy and nothing for the average citizens, they receaved nothing of consequence, Big business took the tax break and baught back into their own companies stock to boost their numbers on Wall Street. In the meantime you say that the economy is good and use wall Street as a measure. Well it's not, I know that and unless your denser than I think you are you know it too. Some of those companies laid off people, gave some bonuses to the bigwigs, and prices went up in stores.
    You say that tariffs are good, that they will be paying the taxes. That is a lie, we pay taxes on all imports, which is why prices have risen for food and other goods. You said that companies were coming back, but then they changed their mind and decided to go into research and development, Harley Davidson is going elsewhere shutting down part of their plant, we don't make the parts to them, parts are made in other countries and shipped back to them to be assembled.
    You talk about people in Mexico and central America like they are animals, yet you never hated to live off their backs, while you paid them less and didn't provide them with healthcare. You and your managers did provide them with phoney documents. You did the same thing when you built trump tower, which I hope falls around your head.
    You have lost more money and distroyed more business ventures, and then borrowed money from banks, without paying it back, then you washed money for the American Mafia, now you wash money from the Russians. You lost and wasted money your father gave you and the money you inherited, and then the banks now Russia. You are what the credit people call a bad risk. Now you owe the cities you've campaigned in money, plus Washington DC.
    You complained that Obama spent to much time plying golph, and you said you would not be doing that because you would be working for us. Working the taxpayers is what your doing because you spend almost all of your weekends going to your golph courses, whih costs the American tax payers a large fortune in fuel, and putting up your secret service, as well as any guest you may take. On top of that you arrive at work late, leave early have one sudo meeting a day, and retire upstairs to watch TV, eat Mc Chicken, or Burger King and drink Diet Soda. You take talking points from Harrity, and some of the other boobs at FOX news, and call CNN and other stations Fake news when they call you out. You call them the enemy of the people, well as I see it the enemy is you.
    You say you love the poorly educated, but that's because you can manipulate them into beleaving your lies. They follow you around like a pack of dogs, and every time you clap they clap. It's like watching Pavlovs dog. You bask in their adulation, when you make fun of your betters, and prey on their fears, and biases, when you spout your racist ideas. Your sick with your own fears, and hatreds. Your sick with your own racism and you spread it around like candy, while you denigrate hard working people, people who have worked hard for you, while you paid them less than white people. You are a weak stupid man child. You cry because you don't get the credit for doing a good thing in your twisted little mind, but God for bid you should own anything that turns out wrong, or deadly as lt has recently in El Paso, and Dayton. You make excuses, and the Republicans cover you because you give them the freedom to do what they want. I would bet most of them are disgusted by you, but they have their agendas, and so will hold their noses.
    World leaders see how easy it is to manipulate you, but you are a joke to them. Even Kim Jung Un knows he can manipulate you.

    You are nothing Donny, you always have been nothing. You incapable of genuine feelings for anyone other than yourself. You were asked by the people of Dayton and El Paso not to come, but you adjusted your jacket and bullied your way into two devastated cities who were in shock and mourning their loses. You didn't pull the trigger that murdered those people, but you put a target on their backs, and opened the door. Moscow Mitch is keeping it open, and Leningrad Lindsey is helping him. Jeff Sessions protected you, but you were so stupid you never recognized it, but he had the same agenda as Steven Miller, and you have.
    Your father was a member of the KKK, so I'm not surprised by your thinking. He taught you to look good but not how to be good. Your mafia lawyer tsught you how to scam, and cheat, but you have lied all your pathetic life.

  • The American people have seen he's an abomination but we can't do anything until 2020. When will our other elected officials protect our country and adhere to the promise they made in service?

  • All Democrats have is their pathetic race card! Everything is racist this and racist that! The only racist is them and they are so stupid they don't see how they are the only racists. It ain't Trump that is racist! But just count how many times they say RACIST! On CNN. MSNBC, CBS, NBC, These people are all brainwashed idiots and they don't have a clue they are being used!

  • Johannes Geense says:

    I love your country! I love your people! But I think your president has to go…! I used to live in the U.S. I lived in Texas. I had friends from both sides… The thing was, that in those times, right and left, were not much apart. I think, that under Trump's rule, the whole world is suffering..

  • HannuKaleviElo says:

    Massive bombshell! JP Morgan Chase Bank involved in money laundering thru this criminal network and syndicate Wise Banc!

  • NRA, good people on both sides. We’re going to get it done… Is it three days yet so I can forget about this and get back to golf? Oooo … hamburders.

  • Nico Hernandez says:

    No gun control is good good n control. This new push "red flag laws"crap is going to be abused! Its just another way at taking guns from Americans. It does nothing to stop criminals from getting guns. Grow a pair, get gun training , and defend your families. Cowards! The politicians and Celebrities have armed guards. So why can't we defend ourselves.

  • Media keeps talking about getting these politician's attention. It's the hypocritical evil racist supporters that need to be addressed. These is nothing that can done to change the hearts and minds of those people. Rep Castro published the publicly available list of Trump supporters. In turn, I notified those individuals of not patronizing their business ever again. A small step, but a step nevertheless.

  • You fat ignorant waddling outhouse Putin's fat orange glove puppet and his Repugnant MAGAt sidekick Moscow Mitch we are going for you you are done! 2020 is coming up fast! Yes we'll rally round the flag, boys, we'll rally once again
    Shouting the battle cry of freedom
    We will rally from the hillside, we'll gather from the plain
    Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
    The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
    Down with the traitors, up with the stars;
    While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again
    Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

  • Are u people on drugs or what.We have Muslims and there mosscs in alot of States as well as sanuary cities.There teaching the Muslim religion in schools.And u all want to take guns away.What are u all going to do when the New World Order comes full circle? That's what's going on here .They want to take the guns so when they get the word to move in to take over the American people wont be able to fight back.I will tell u from a intuitive point of view some say physic.Which ever way.U better becareful what u wish for.Because it won't be long we won't know America as we know it.Oh and Mr Sharpton.Im a Trump supporter but I'm not a racist

  • Trump with his degenerates need to all be thrown in jail. He lies to your face and MAGA's are far beyond too ignorant to understand. It seems all the people he's trying to kick out are the same ones that voted for him. He is not going to destroy this country because he already has.

  • wait what! so you're saying is our orange troll is just LYING to us? LUL 11k misleading and false statements since taking office.

  • Americans can keep on focusing on the fact that Donny Dum-Dum is a racist, but until they square themselves to the reality that all of the mouth breathers that voted him into office, that support him and chant away at his rallies are racists as well, this problem will not go away. Your moron-in-chief has only given the green light to these idiots … getting rid of him is only the first step in a much larger problem.

  • Nothing will happen; the new toy he got is too complex to play with and he is bored with it. Yes, Trump is afraid of upsetting people who express overt authority; those who have extreme and hence simple beliefs [mainly because that is all he can understand himself; more complex ideas just confuse and hence upset him]. Maybe Trumps real crime is that he is 'simple'. AMERICA is now experiencing a real version of BEING THERE but rather than the main character being a gentle gardener [played by Peter Sellers] you have a spoiled angry child [in a big orange body suit] who got what he wished for [America] and now is bored with it. .

  • Al ohhh Al isint that the tune you know so well? Lol. Lordy!!! What did the Dems do with “Gun laws” is all the years they had the power to make change? 🤔 also it seems to me that, these ppl project what their idea of a good time is to each of them. It’s not good and in fact, quite telling.

  • Yep – he drained the swamp (ha ha) only to find that some very angry white men with semi-automatic weapons liked the swamp just the way it was.

    Seriously, how does anyone get elected to Congress without money to fund a campaign ? If you're not taking it directly from the NRA, you're taking it from their chums in Big Tobacco, Big Pharma etc. Most stunning of all is a survey that was allegedly conducted after the latest shootings where 89% of the Americans surveyed indicated that they favored background checks for the mentally ill prior to selling them a firearm – WHAT THE ALMIGHTY FRACK IS GOING ON ?? 11% who couldn't see that such a move is the bare minimum …….

    I don't want to see the mentally ill with so much as a serrated butterknife, but apparently 16% of Republicans have no problem with the same people being sold an M-15. Jesus wept.

    https://www.npr.org/2019/08/10/749792493/americans-largely-support-gun-restrictions-to-do-something-about-gun-violence

    According to the polls, there are few issues with as broad support as universal background checks — 89% overall said they supported background checks for gun purchases at gun shows or other private sales,in a July NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.

    Even 84% of Republicans are in favor of them, according to the poll.

  • 1) Mandatory Liability Insurance 2) Mandatory Licensing 3) Mandatory Registration 4) Mandatory class safety storage certifications

  • The 2nd Amendment was put in place to protect our democracy from tyranny. That is why the 2nd Amendment says "the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed". If we decide that we are going to base ownership on background checks, the Government can say that we all are mental and remove our only means to protect ourselves. The President may decide to exterminate the Mexican people, can't happen? It has happened 7 times since the 20th century and has killed 56 million people and it all started with gun control…

  • Trump does nothing when big tech censors conservative voices, or anyone they don't like. That is the first amendment he does not support obviously. Now he is after the second amendment, that he has trampled on more than O'Bama. Well guess what Trump, you just lost my vote 2020. Not this time bubba. He is quickly proving himself as a shill for the swamp, a salesman, and I'm starting to feel dooped.

  • hey democrats, the republicans are a perfect example of mental instability. when you get back to work, pass some laws to make it easier to help them. trump believes he can straddle the fence on gun control. on immigration. he's confused. help him out.

  • The El Paso shooting looks like another false flag. At least two eyewitnesses, who were standing in line at checkout, said they saw a group of 3 to 4 men, moving as a group, come rushing past them into the store. The men were wearing all black and carrying long guns and then they started shooting. If we don't hear about the surveillance video evidence, which should tell the whole story, it will be a another solid indication that this is a false flag. San Bernardino, Paris, and Parkland, at very least, were carried out by similar group of shooters, according to eyewitnesses. We are being played like a cheap fiddle!

  • Agustin Juarez-Garcia says:

    Do you think today would be an excellent day for Donald Trump to resign? https://www.quora.com/Do-you-think-today-would-be-an-excellent-day-for-Donald-Trump-to-resign?ch=99&share=e848576a&srid=xwhJJ

  • "If they knew there were guns in the room, it might not have happened." Trump or the NRA – what's the diff?
    Last year, 47 police officers were shot to death while on duty. That doesn't include off-duty deaths, survivors of shootings, or deaths not caused by guns.
    If only their assailants knew that cops carry guns and are trained how to use them. I'm sure no one would have pulled out a gun & shot them to death.

  • to Trump "intelligent backround checks" means, "if u got enough money, u can BUY the right to carry a gun." what we NEED, is to make sure our next candidates are intelligent THEMSELVES…
    EVERY1 is so much MORE well spoke than Trump…. that alone makes them MORE intelligent,.

  • i see sharpton i dont watch, you can rightly attack trump for being a bigoted opportunistic conman but when one is on "you side" you give him a platform?
