  1. Uh oh. Someone said something to him. Now he’s repeating what the last person said to him. That’s how he does policy.

  2. When 90% of Americans want something that reasonably makes us safer and will help prevent mass murder….
    And republicans refuse to even allow a vote ….
    You know that America isn’t really as great as we say it is.

    • @Mark Haddox You’re the one asking about “other obsolete laws” when I’m just focused on the 2nd amendment. 😄😆😅😂
      Man, you’re arguments are soooo weak. Not even worth my time. Go read this – and maybe you’ll learn something. https://theweek.com/articles/629815/how-alexander-hamilton-solved-americas-gun-problem–228-years-ago
      BYE! 👋👋

    • @Ro G US citizens god given rights to be armed to defend themselves against tyranny both foreign and domestic isnt worthy of your time. You have been raised to be a slave. You love your masters. Freemen are armed slaves are not. It is that simple. I dont click on links so you can try and regurgitate someone else’s argument to take away freedoms if you want. When you run from debate after losing so badly it shows everyone how weak you and your ideas are. Thanks for that.

    • Ro G theweek.com is from the UK.🤣 gtfoh foreigner and mind your own business. No wonder you will not answer the question are you a US citizen.

    • @Mark Haddox I was born in Illinois, numb nut. So thanks for asking, and making yourself look like a bigger fool. 😄😆😅😂 And that article is mostly straight excerpts from The Federalist Papers. If you read them, you’d understand why the 2nd Amendment was created in the first place. But I guess US history is something you think is relevant in this discussion. 😄😆😅😂😄😆😅😂😄😆😅😂

    When is it a badge of honor to admit special interest /nracontrols the whitehouse

  4. Why don’t Dems use this to create ballot initiatives on extensive background checks before gun purchases and an automatic weapons ban?

    • @Nancy Prevost there is no second amendment and therefore no citizen gun ownership in Russia. Why dont you go to Russia. You are the one who is not ment for freedom. You can go to any country in the world and be at the complete mercy of your government overlords. But this will never happen in the USA.

    • @Mark Haddox What’s unconstitutional about background checks or an assault weapons ban which, by the way, was previously in effect? There is no need to go down the hypothetical rabbit hole here. I don’t get the automatic instinct to be hyperbolic.

    • @chi chi because the constitution says “shall not be infringed”. There are background checks right now. Every gun I have bought I had to have a background check. The red flag laws are unconstitutional because they are skipping due process. There is no real definition of assault rifle. The ban in the 90s just made the manufacturers take off the pistol grip. If you dont know alot about guns it is overwhelming trying to learn the differences between them. The assault rifle ban went after the scariest looking guns (the ar15 and ak47) but left the more powerful ones untouched. A good place to start is the different sizes of ammunition. The ar15 is normally 5.56 and the ak47 is 762×39. Then go look at the 308.762×51 or the 30.6. Every gun is one pull of trigger and one bullet comes out. Even revolvers.

    • @Mark Haddox Clearly you haven’t been paying attention. The reason people are calling for background checks before ALL gun purchases is because those UNIVERSAL background checks don’t exist. I brought up the previous assault weapons ban simply becais you claimed it was unconstitutional. Now you want to move the goal posts and talk about the definition of an assault weapon. People really need to realize that the constitution was made for man, not the the other way round. The constitution can be and has been amendment to meet the needs of the changing times. Shall not be infringed upon should not mean every person with a pulse should have access to a gun. We have the RIGHT to sleep freely, but we cannot slander anyone in the name of free speech. Responsible gun users/owners should have no issue with EVERYONE who seeks to purchase a gun to undergo a background check. It defies logic for anyone to push back on that idea. We constantly complain about people with serious mental health issues or a history of violence going unnoticed until they commit mass murder and yet we are the same ones who balk at introducing a system by which people in their lives can sound the alarm. If every effort to ensure that a weapon as dangerous as a gun does not fall into the wrong hands is somehow an “infringement”, then I guess the background check you went through was unconstitutional and should be scrapped. We really do get in our own way as human beings.

    • @chi chi we all want to stop these crazy people from shooting up everyone. I dont know what “universal” background check adds to the current background checks but my point is there are background checks that prevents violent convicts from buying guns legally right now. Most of these mass shooters are taking their guns from their family members and not buying them. Or they are bought on the streets illegally. There should be a campaign educating the public to properly store their guns but no new regulations. Some of these politicians want to take away guns from the American people.

  5. NO you should NOT. You should READ the CONSTITUTION. THAT’S what YOU should DO.

  6. Let the public vote on it…how novel !!

  7. 10% oppose. That should be a red flag.

  8. 90 % Want new laws. The will of the people is being blatantly ignored !!!

    • @Debra Burns what other god given rights do Americans want to give back to the federal government? I’m guessing you have never bought a gun before. There are already background checks. Red flag laws are unconstitutional and will never happen. I predict no new laws. What is your position. Do you want to ban all guns and implement repossession of all of them?

    • I never said take guns away. I meant the lawmakers should listen to the people before doing/not doing something about this epidemic of craziness.

    • @Debra Burns the gun ownership in the 2nd amendment is to defend the American public against tyranny both foreign and domestic. I’m glad to hear you do not want to try and take US citizens guns away. Some people do and want us to buy back all the guns like in Australia in the 90s.

    • BS. 90% do not want new laws. You are exaggerating.

    45 was a registered Democrat as well as his family until he ran for President.

  10. Politicians, including Trump, are worthless. They should all be removed. This isn’t working. They get nothing done. People need to take the power back. Politicians leave everyone open to mass manslaughter because of their greed. They need to all go.

  11. No Background Checks! Background Checks are a infringement on the Constitution

  12. Who did not see this coming?

    I can’t even watch him right now … he makes me so sick, blahhhh
    When when when, are you going to wake up!? Like everyone else, trumps scared shitless of the NRA!!!
    My question is, why we’ve allowed the NRA to have this effect on anyone!??? WHY?

    Strong president, I’m going to ban and recall all semi automatic weapons, I’m going to pass red flag laws and I’m going to pass a law to enforce background checks that will take one month. Sorry America you have a clown and a con man running your country, that takes orders from the NRA, his foreign and domestic policies from Fox news hosts, and has a brown shirt( jewish )advisor dictating immigration policy.

  15. CEO mentality, can’t agree to get anything done unless it’s about advancing their careers or getting more money. CEOs are great at meetings, lunches, speaking opportunities, self promotion and traveling.

  16. YES!!! – VOTE PLEASE!!!!!!
