Gavin Newsom: Failure To Act On Gun Violence Is A 'Damn Disgrace' | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

  1. Hey if orange man can just say.. Well.. Isis.. If ur hearing.. Don’t attack us.. Attack orange Hitler.. Ill do the milky way a favor

    • Folks, this is what happens when you use drugs.

    • Did you just advocate for a foreign terrorist organization to assassinate the President of the United States? Really? That must make you feel very patriotic

  2. Your media stack the deck as well. Take the Washington Post. Its take in on New Zealand’s banning of semi automatics and military style weapons said that the NZ government was finding it hard and that the compulsory buy back had only had a 1% compliance rate. That was in April. The buy back programme didn’t start until July. The media also said owners were up in arms. Yet on the first of several buy back days, all, count them, all respondents interviewed said they didn’t have a problem with the ban. The only beef expressed by some was the price being offered in compensation. It seems the Post and others have been quick to print NRA talking points and have the temerity to call it responsible reporting. No wonder the “fake news” cry found a ready home. And it seems you just want to convince people that it’s all too damned hard. Oh and to those people who actively campaigned against the NZ move through social media and said that because of the ban I’d be dead in my bed. Still here, and according to the stats I’m 82 times less likely to be killed by a firearm here than in the land of what I’ll laughingly call “the free”.

      @C&B Jones You wan’t me to cry over a low-budget comedy skit? Take one good guess why the tranny PM wanted it taken off the Net so fast (but it was too late and I am one of the many who watched). They made a big mistake and realized it too late. Shame, on you NZ Government! Shame!

      @Mind Freshener Are you scared of all intelligent women or just the ones who are in powerful jobs?

      @Margaret Nicol If you copy the part link from youtube I posted, and paste over in your address field, it will take to a youtube video of one of those “intelligent” moments of that creature.

      @Mind Freshener Sorry, no offence but I don’t go to links posted in comments. I’ll simply say that no-one is infallible/perfect which is what makes us human – including you. We all have our moments but it doesn’t take away from our intelligence.

    • @Mind Freshener Sure,I’ll agree that your life is less worthy than gun manufacturer profits. There. We agree on something!

    Here’s gun legislation everyone can live by, no guns period.

    • Thomas Ridley | July 31, 2019 at 3:09 AM | Reply

      That would be nice. But unrealistic if you live next to nature. We need to make gun ownership harder to get. Its harder to get an id than a gun at this point.

    • Thomas Ridley : I own a gun as a hobby. I enjoy getting my gun off. It’s awesome fun, especially when you hit all your marks with accuracy. Better than your best day on the golf course and WAY quicker. Once you take away the farmers, wildlife controllers, law enforcement, etc, the hobbyists, like me, account for over 80% of firearms in America. I would sacrifice my hobby, if I thought it would do any good. But, no one is asking for that. A few simple, “Controls,” would save countless lives, but the Not Really Americans keep stepping in, screaming, “They want ALL your guns,” like some hysterical 6 year olds, ensuring that NOTHING ever changes, except for the rising tide of unnecessary deaths. America’s biggest menace is lobby groups, from Russian Hacktivists, to the gun lobby, and all the private interests in between. But, when you put the Russians AND the gun lobby together, you end up with the biggest threat to America, since the Civil War: The NRA

    • Criminals are soooo… impressed.

      @Sammy Bolo I guess your talking about the NRA. Yes, they are criminal.

    The americans obsession with guns is sickening

  5. Thomas Ridley | July 31, 2019 at 3:21 AM | Reply

    More guns , more violence. There can’t possibly be a connection.

  6. Trump has no guts to declare a national emergency on gun violence due to substantial financial support from NRA !

    The constitution proffers the right to bear arms but perhaps that right should only allow “arms” available at that time. It would be properly tricky to go on a rampage with a muzzle loading rifle and musket!

    • Criminals love you.

    • Stephen Gibb well maybe the 4th amendment should only apply to communications written on animal skins with a quill pen then delivered by a guy on horseback next time you have a thought just let it go

    Back in the day you had to load after each shot, right?

    The latest USA sub machine gun shoots hundreds of rounds per minute.

    “Infested” is the key word. Ir comes from a a White House, a Senate, and a Supreme Court, infested with criminals.

    It’s time to become civilized

  12. SENOR GOVERNADOR, GRACIAS POR SU COMPASION. ES MUY IMPORTANTE DARLE ENTENDER A TODO EL MUNDO EL MENSAJE DE DOLOR, RESPECTO, AMOR Y EJEMPLO. PERO TODO ESTO QUE SIGUE PASADO EN NUESTRO PAIS Y EN EL MUNDO SON EJEMPLOS DE EL PORQUE DEBEMOS RESPETARNOS EL UNO A EL OTRO. ESPERO QUE EL PARTIDO REPUBLICANO ENTIENDA LA GRAVEDAD DE LA BASURA QUE SU LIDER ” TRUMP”LADRA. TODO ESTO NO LE AYUDA A NADIE QUE ESTA LISTO PARA ATACAR POR SIMPLEMENTE NO SER DE SU MISMO COLOR. SENOR NEWSOM GRACIAS POR TODO!

    Are Americans so afraid that they need assault weapons to protect them. I always thought that assault weapons are used to attack people.

    • Frans van Mook newsflash the weapon used in California a few days ago WASN’T an assault weapon and wouldn’t be covered under an assault weapons bill but of course as a liberal you know nothing about weapons

    Make opiods legal and they will be too stoned to use them.

  18. Bless Gavin Newsom for having the courage of straight talking. Many more like him needed in politics!

  19. “He can’t even drink but he can get a weapon of war. ” At the age of 18 you can enlist for military service but still can’t drink.
