  1. How about we apply this to cigarettes then. Those kill thousands per day.

      @JAILEN ROBINSON *** Its where america makes alot of its profit. ***
      The CIGARETTE TAX was introduced by BILLY-BOY CLINTON… and that’s how LIBTARDS and LGBT QUEERS fund their SOCIAL ENGINEERING PROGRAMS to indoctrinate CHILDREN.

    • Because Cigarettes are killing kids and they aren’t killing many adult either.

    • @steve119md So lets completely legalize drugs and abortion? that is what you are implying also.

    • fair point but once again why should Trump be the one to piss off many people , he didn’t cause the cigarette problem but I bet iif he was president at the time when it was first kicking off and trump got info that cigarettes are killing people and its harmful to people, he would do what whoever was president at that time didn’t do.
      exactly what a sane president does, and exactly what he has done in this situation, he caught it early and and potentially avoided what has a high risky of manifestation in to something huge down the track causing his citizens major harm. and banning them cannot cause his citizens harm.his looking after the people and his sticking to the big corporations that could be looking to promote and grow this into the repeat of cigarettes.

    • @Nonfon Animate I never said anything about prohibition, I’m just applying the exact same logic to alcohol that our current government is using on e-cigs.

  2. Adults can’t have…time to ban candy and soda to many fat facks

    • They are not too far from it considering the legislation in some Liberal cities to raise taxes just on sugary drinks and snacks.

      You guys have it backwards.
      Food is cheap, convenient and fast here in USA but healthcare is expensive…..WHY?

  3. “There is nothing in the Constitution about vaping.” – you are correct
    However there is nothing in the Constitution about the FDA.

  4. Over 400k dies from Cigarettes but i guess it’s whoever pays the bigger bribes.

    • foreigner fan tell that to the people who have lung cancer from smoking a pack a day. Ever seen what a smoker’s lung looks like compared to a non smoker? Ever heard a smoker’s cough?

    • @Carl Jack Pollution kills. Not cigarettes. Sorry.

    • foreigner fan can you back up your statement ? Can you prove that cigarettes don’t kill? Don’t bother… 6 million people worldwide die each year from smoking related diseases. You’re right about pollution…it kills 4.6 million a year. Those smoking related deaths though are totally preventable.

    • @Carl Jack The facts are out there. Cigarettes aid in lung sicknesses but not the cause. Pollution is #1 in a landslide. More non smokers die of lung cancer than smokers. Because of weak systems and pollution. Cheers from Toronto

    • @C.T.R. Lee exactly

  5. Hold up, I thought we were talking about vaping, not guns…

    • @Charis Perissos it’s an over generalization honestly, I think we should have regulations that ensure people are properly trained to use guns, like get a license if you need one and demonstrate proper knowledge of their capacity and consequences.
      Half of me thinks we don’t really need guns in our social contract.
      And the other half remembers that in El Salvador, the military sent death squads to clear out farmers from the land they owned and I wonder if thinks would’ve been different if they had some means to defend themselves.

      @grimwatcher It covers multi facets for me. I hunt, I like to target shoot, and its for defense of my home and family. I find that most folks carry a lot of misinformation around about the numbers nationally when it comes to self defense uses vs crime. They also carry around misinformation about how firearms work and what they are capable of. And the media, either purposefully or out of ignorance, spreads misinformation. I have friends on both sides of the political spectrum. And I have found that the vast majority have no clue how they work and what the laws are. For the most part, those I have taught and brought to the range have changed their minds and now own their own guns. From the political side, yeah I still agree that the thought of protection from government looms in my head as well. As crazy as things have been for the past several years, Id rather be prepared. From a legislative perspective, most owners’ hang up with background checks on private sales is the fact that it really requires an national registry to enforce. So government knowing what you have doesn’t help much in your El Salvador example. Not to mention that we know that our government and law enforcement is corruptible, so do I want anybody in a law enforcement office to check out what I have, probably not. So if we can achieve that without a national registry, and setting a cap on what a dealer can charge to do the background check, I’d be ok with it. Based on the research from the FBI and other sources, in around 93% of the cases, someone had some prior knowledge that something was going to go south with the mass shooter. Not to mention 60% of cases showed mental health issues, some of which where know to providers, but HIPPA laws prevent reporting. So with that information I am not opposed to red flag laws. As a side note, I get really pissed at the Hollywood actors who push the gun control narrative, when they’ve made millions by staring in action movies which promote and glorify violence and murder, and all while using firearms. How hypocritical can you be

    • @Elijah Lawrence guns are a issue and it’s the young kids today the ones doing the murdering so yeah it should be a topic.

    • @Jesus is KING Ban guns when liberals are violently attacking people left and right and trying to ban the constitution? Makes sense…

    I’m part of the “Well Regulated Militia”

    • @Grey Area if memory serves the only one to restrict guns was a republican in New York City

    • In the 40s, american citizens were thrown into internment camps by their own government. The second amendment did nothing for them. (And let’s not talk about all the patriotic “good guy with a gun” soldiers that had no problem with following orders)

      @BLT4LIFE The one and only time I ever heard of a “good guy with a gun” at any of the innumerable mass-shootings that have occurred was when the cops shot an armed security guard at a nightclub who was trying to subdue the mass-shooter, because the “good guy with a gun” was black.

      @Philosopher of Nonsense Complete denial…. carry on.

  7. “When they get home. Mom i wanna vape.” Yahhhh that’s how it goes.

  8. Mass shootings and gun control no. Stop vaping is the real emergency!

  9. E cigarettes- 5 deaths
    Cigarettes- 100,000,000+ deaths
    Marijuana- 0 deaths
    Only one of these substances is illegal.

    I got jebaited into thinking this video was actually about vaping

  11. Why do they fail to mention that the deaths were because of home made thc cartridges and not actual nicotine vapes?

  12. Remember what happened with Prohibition? Ready for a Vape repeat?

  13. Ban E-cigs but not cigs? hmm, starting to think someone got sick of losing money

    • @upnorthgirl I literally gave you the 85% of the US E-Cigarette industry – which is owned or partially owned by big cigarette companies (in particular Phillip Morris and Reynolds – but there are others too). Mom and pop shops is the exact opposite of that – they are the gaps between that – the niche.

      So when I pointed out earlier that in fact, the big cigarette corporations are not concerned by E-Cigarettes – because they already own most of the market. You said that is false. It is NOT false. Because if you own or control 85% of the market – you HAVE WON.

      If you have another point – that is fine. But having a conversation like this is like walking on quicksand.

    • @Foniks Monkee I want you to tell me how many brands of OPEN SYSTEM, refillable eliquid lines are on the market today made by non tobacco related companies? Hint, It is WAY more than the companies that you listed owned selling closed system style cigalike devices by the big tobacco industry and sold in gas stations. But who will be left after all this regulatuon? The same companies selling those products you listed above. The ones that sell tobacco, and now want to sell vapes because they are losing tobacco sales. Not the 1000’s of juice lines made by non affiliated tobacco small busniess owners. You’re in over your head on this subject, please stop. You are hurting the very people you think your trying to protect, and bolstering the ones that should not be allowed to sell vape products, which in my opinion should be the tobacco industry, which unfortunately triggered the need/desire for those very products. This is way more complex than you understand.

    • @Foniks Monkee Also, I am done debating you on this, I have more important things to do, like try to save my small family owned mom and pop after all of this. Myself, my husband, my 2 adult children, and 3 part time employees may be losing their jobs soon.

    • True. I bet if they had heavy taxes on e-cig liquids like they do tobacco nobody would have a problem.

  14. Yea what do they care if people are dying. They favor the tobacco industry

  15. This whole pile of BS about ecigs is straight from big tobacco.

  16. Can we do cigarettes first and then we could deal with vaping

  17. Should probably ban flavored vodka then too by this logic.

  18. Dictator Orange Baby Man | September 12, 2019 at 1:38 AM | Reply

    Lets ban CONMAN too and deport them back to where they came from.

  19. Parslow Pongbert | September 12, 2019 at 2:37 AM | Reply

    It isn’t the vape that kills you, it’s the person that presses the button. Why isn’t trump’s logic the same as for guns?

  20. Oh whatever… It’s not the e-cigarettes fault! It’s the smoker’s fault! Same stupid argument with assault weapons!!! 😡
