  • When Trump passes a bill increasing background checks MSNBC will say, “ Trump is infringing our 2nd amendment rights”

  • Funny how the media still won’t report the shooters were leftists. Is the media afraid of implicating themselves?

  • Trump is afraid. Period. Of his own shadow, of the bogeyman, of Pelosi, of Melania telling the press he needs viagra, etc.

  • what you so called msnbc know it alls fail to see is for about 5 years now many people have been leaving the nra to support more local groups. you libs are so stuck on the nra that you dont understand what we understand . THE NRA DOES NOT GIVE US THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS THE CONSTITUTION DOES AND THAT IS A LOT MORE POWERFUL THAN AN NRA MEMBERSHIP CARD. you idiots are always two steps behind.

  • MSNBCannibal Theater presents; Amy Claw Butcher!! Her nails are artificial composite material laser sharpened (Designed to rip the flesh apart!!) #FearAMYClawButcher

  • Very good report and interview. More all telling info on The DON…All bullies are cowards we were taught 30 years ago.! Trump and Mitch are big bad jokes!

  • OBAMA CAMPAIGNED ON NOT TARGETING MARIJUANA BUSINESSES. GETS ELECTED AND ORDERS ERIC HOLDER TO IMMEDIATELY TARGET MARIJUANA BUSINESSES IN CALIFORNIA.

  • Society is becoming a world where people are being conditioned to look down on the poor and the needy, and praise the power of lies, hate and greed. Money, power and greed is raging throughout our society exposing the wicked and soulless to be the idolatrous normalcy in our society. Yes, it has been around for a long time, but when Trump became our president, he kicked the door open so wide that it leaves a dark horizon on the future of our country. He was voted into our country, filling it with lies, hate and greed; a soulless person darkening the future of all of our children and those who live on beyond us. He is stealing our democracy and the moralities of our nation. It is sad when people are so ignorant and soulless that they actually follow him.

  • Is it just me or are the “bot” style posts, spiking? We are being manipulated, people. Listen to your ❤️.

  • 20 year old Tyler Wingate was pulled from his car and kicked to death by a black racist, why isnt this hate crime on msm?! Digusting.

  • Amy who? Her side is the cause and sole source of the "hateful rhetoric" and she is talking to one of the chief clowns in this circus. Oh, and they still don't like the NRA. Big surprise there. Go ahead, fire up your hateful rhetoric about how the assault weapon did it and see if you can't sell more guns than B HO. The left gaslights about everything and thinks that most Americans are self-loathing enough to fall for it.

  • No… The Great President Trump is going to play you progressive Lunatics again by tying " Universal background checks " with his immigration reform and force you clowns to say " NO' " to Universal background checks and Universal background checks.
    This will be Hilarious !

  • Pretty sure he shook them (the NRA) down for a ton of dough. Dude's a deal maker but the only one who benefits is him.

  • Everyone knows how much and when McConnell and Trump accepted bribes from the NRA. The NRA needs to accept that if they are no longer pursuing an American agenda, but a Russian agenda, they will be losing their protected tax status. They would do better to take a leadership role in defining which legislation they believe would be most effective.

  • Father of dead Parkland student, Andrew Pollack, calls out Pelosi for viciously criticizing Trump’s efforts to help teachers protect students (12-26-18)

  • Trump should be afraid of the NRA and his supporters. Any attempt by the left to enact gun control, of any kind, should be see as a threat. You'll have some obese cat lady Portland, OR deciding whether to red flag you for making an anti-immigration post of Facebook. No thanks.

  • That was rich coming from Moscow Mitch saying that holding up passing such legislation was wrong. LMAO The House Democrats have done their job on this Moscow Mitch and you just sat on it and sat on it and did nothing. You are so afraid to bring up anything the House Democrats have passed that your butt cheeks are stuck together permanently. Probably why you couldn't walk right and fell down.

  • This sad excuse of a human being, moscow 🐢mitch; is the cream of the crop of the republican party. They smile and laugh right in your faces; in person or right on TV. Nothing matters to them anymore, they control the Senate, the Supreme Court and Executive branch. So as Corporations are now "We The People" and Money is "Free Speech", I guess we should all just bow down and kiss the ring of our wonderful "Job Creators", the 1%. Smile Gentiles! 🤑

  • Trump is weak minded heartless, soulless, insensitive non human .
    His own insecurities is what he tries to push on us . Trump is big mouth and all this presidency is
    To him is a sideshow .
    Ratings crowd sizes and performances are what he thinks is more important to relish about . Insyead of being a leader ..trump is destroyer and divider .
    Trump is weak and soulless !

  • Are you stupid, Senator? You know there are checks for gun purchases from any store or professional gun seller.
    Just not for private sales and gifts. Do you really want to force a father ordering a check for giving a gun to his son.?

  • So says the man, that blocks everything, regarding gun laws. We know why he's doing it, keep him honest, it's all about the money, period.

  • Some more stupidity this isn't a mater of being afraid of the NRA this is your 2nd amendment constitutional right you idiots. No real american would put the 2nd amendment & the Kremlin in the same sentence.THIS IS OUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHT! I don't want to see people get hurt but freedom is a risk also

    (including the criminal’s) is shed.
    Fact: Property crime rates are dropping (especially burglaries). The chart shows the legal handgun supply in America (mainly in civilian
    hands) relative to the property crime rate.
    Fact: Every year 400,000 life-threatening violent crimes are prevented using firearms.
    Fact: 60% of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they knew the victim was armed. 40% of convicted
    felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they thought the victim might be armed.
    Fact: Felons report that they avoid entering houses where people are at home because they fear being shot.
    Fact: 59% of the burglaries in Britain, which has tough gun control laws, are “hot burglaries” which are burglaries committed while the
    home is occupied by the owner/renter. By contrast, the U.S., with more lenient gun control laws, has a “hot burglary” rate of only 13%.
    Fact: Washington DC has essentially banned gun ownership since 1976 and has a murder rate of 56.9 per 100,000. Across the river in
    Arlington, Virginia, gun ownership is less restricted. There, the murder rate is just 1.6 per 100,000, less than three percent of the
    Washington, DC rate.
    Fact: 26% of all retail businesses report keeping a gun on the premises for crime control.
    Fact: In 1982, Kennesaw, GA passed a law requiring heads of households to keep at least one firearm in the house. The residential
    burglary rate dropped 89% the following year.
    Fact: A survey of felons revealed the following:
    74% of felons agreed that, “One reason burglars avoid houses when people are at home is that they fear being shot during the crime.”
    57% of felons polled agreed, “Criminals are more worried about meeting an armed victim than they are about running into the police.”
    Fact: 90% of all violent crimes in the U.S. do not involve firearms of any type.
    Fact: Even in crimes where the offender possessed a gun during the commission of the crime, 83% did not use or threaten to use the
    gun.
    Fact: Fewer than 1% of firearms will ever be used in the commission of a crime.
    Fact: Two-thirds of the people who die each year from gunfire are criminals being shot by other criminals.
    Fact: Cincinnati’s review of their gang problem revealed that 74% of homicides were committed by less than 1% of the population.
    Fact: 92% of gang murders are committed with guns. Gangs are responsible for between 48% and 90% of all violent crimes.
    Fact: Most gun crimes are gang related, and as such are big-city issues. In fact, if mayors in larger cities were more diligent about
    controlling gang warfare, state and nationwide gun violence rates would fall dramatically.

  • Whats so bad about the NRA? I dont understand it, we fight to support the constitution and the people we're trying to protect hate us

  • 😂 MSNBC & Democrats still pushing propaganda and indoctrination on the few viewers they have left. YOU are the cause of this division. YOU are stoking hate with all your name calling and doxing and opinionews and race baiting.

  • Oh America I feel so bad for your children maybe when they get older they will realize that the Second Amendment needs to be burned taken away you Americans cannot own guns you think a mental health law is going to help you with your mass shootings you people need to wake up

  • If nothing else Trump is helping YouTube n other comedy/media outlets make a lot of $ y isn’t he exaggerating n bragging that too? he has turned the USA Presidency into a Reality TV Show we r all in it and this is all part of it say Baa Baa Sheeples! To all the rest of our great guiding government politicians Trump is just following the rules n laws n protocols so it’s ez 2cyur2 n trying2 save the government from him 👍🏼

  • The NRA is powered by millions of law abiding gun owners who support our 2nd. He should be and everyone else who infringes on our rights!! Mental health needs the focus not gun control.

  • Why, they are gutted and nueterd right now. Time to pounce on them as a President's should. It would even garner him more votes to do a lightweight bill for starters.
