  1. That whole "Those in favor say I, those against say no" thing seems lazy. Surely a vote using ballots or even just raising their hands would be more accurate.

  2. “Don’t sell people guns if they’re on the terrorist watchlist”… NRA – no no no that’s fine but don’t let them buy large amounts of fertilizer because then they would have a weapon.

  3. No-one outside the USA can understand why a 1st world country sells automatic military weapons to the public, weapons that can kill on mass, with ease. Could a member of the NRA explain why this is ok.
    Thanks.

  4. It seems to me that USA shows should just stop making new material and just repost the same response every time there's a mass shooting. What's the point of wasting money for new material when the same issue just repeats itself without change.

  5. This is one of the reasons I hate lobbying and lobbyists. It allows dishonesty and money into the field of politics thereby allowing minorities and special interests to wield excessive amounts of power and influence over decisions that should be in the hands of the people.

  6. “I’ll murder a thousand children before I let the second amendment die! I’ll murder a thousand children before I let the second amendment die! I’ll murder a thousand children before I let the second amendment die! I’ll murder a thousand children before I let the second amendment die! I’ll murder a thousand children before I let the second amendment die! I’ll murder a thousand children before I let the second amendment die!”

  7. The left wants dead children! They go after anything and everything but not the facts. Armed security could be in place at all schools but they would rather go after an object and put blame where there is no blame. It's almost like you people enjoy it

  8. No matter what side of the isle you are on, there are facts we can agree on:
    Facts:
    1.) Over 350 million firearms are in circulation in the US.
    2.) A good portion of gun owners prefer the phrase "Come and Take It" i.e. they won't just give them up peaceably…..civil war maybe….
    3.) Legislation can never fix this as the guns are already in circulation.
    Options: 
    1.) Prevent all future sales of firearms, a constitutional amendment will be needed for this one.
    2.) Do nothing since Bandaids and incremental legislation will never fix this.

  9. Can the US not understand Statistics ?? A 5 year old could find out that EVERY country in the world that has gun control has about 5% or less of gun related crime the US does. The NRA is the biggest bullshitter out there

  10. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." READ IT!

    !!! WELL REGULATED IN A MILITIA AS NEEDED,,,,Right of The PEOPLE"!!!!

    Individual rights are not even mentioned in the amendment, at all, nowhere, "A well regulated militia",,READ IT! WELL REGULATED, not bull shit regulated!!!

    The U.S. Supreme Court is wrong, and DC has the right to protect itself,,time is late for Civil Disobediance, our representatives need to grow a set of balls to protect our lives,. bring back our DC Gun BAN,,, Attorney General Racine and enforce them.

    There are 5 Parkland Florida mass shootings every day in this pathetic, pitiful, violent, country, over 90 gun murders every day, 365 days a year!!. Read it, "necessary", "NECESSARY to the security of a free state" , NOT INDIVIDUALS!!!, and what the hell is "necessary" about AR-15's all over the country,,or our city, what? The 2nd Amendment, READ IT!

    The right of the people, the American People (all of us as a nation), a State, a community,,, it says NOWHERE "the individual has rights", No Where!!!

    ,,,,don't feed the delusion because it is false and deadly,,don't accept little changes to these miserable FAILED gun laws,

    WE MUST reverse the delusion, read the damn Amendment..get into every court, state and Federal, every legislature you can, city , state, federal. Demand the 2nd Amendment "as written be enforced", that is the job of the Supreme Court, not to decide delusions, not cleave off half the Amendment and distort it.

    Don't feed a false, deadly delusion for pathetic American males, to compensate for their frightened needs and for their inferiority complex with weaponry. ITS ILLEGAL, IT CAN BE REVERSED, we can have a peaceful country, YOU made safe, READ IT! ..God Save this Country!!

  11. one thing would change America for the better, mandatory voting. This one change will mean politicians will actually have to listen to you otherwise they are out the door. It also means that if you have to make a vote otherwise you get fined you are more likely to vote for a party that more resembles your thinking and values. For example where I come from in Australia we have the following political parties, Sex party, Greens, Motor enthusiast party, Nationals, Liberals, Labour, One Nation and so on. There is a party that resembles what you actually believe in. Also you don't have to be politically active as everyone has to vote. It seems in America the politicians spend more time looking after lobbyists and there money then actually running the country.

  12. I can't imagine being so against anything related to this thing I apparently need to own that I can't have anyone touch it at all. No, you can't make it harder for people who shouldn't have guns to not have guns. It affects me, even though I'm not a psycho.
