  • Am I allowed to citizens arrest Mitch or is that illegal? I can't find any laws, saying I can't, giving that his actions are possibly endangering millions of US citizens…

  • The problem with republicans is that they couldn't care less about what happens to Americans, well, that is until it affects them, or one of their loved ones. Republican Mike Turner announced his support for a ban on sales of “military style weapons” following the deadly mass shooting in downtown Dayton Ohio after he discovered his daughter was close to being one of the casualties.

    “I believe these are necessary steps forward in protecting our country and a testament to American values, which include protecting human life,” Turner, said in a statement

    Turner, a Dayton native, said he would also support legislation placing restrictions on high-capacity magazines as well as so-called red-flag laws, which allow police and family members to “quickly identify people who are dangerous and remove their ability to harm others.

    Turner made this statement after he found out that his teenage daughter was across the street from the shooting that night and she had just missed being out on the street when the shooting started by just seconds.

    So now all of a sudden he cares. He should have cared back in 2012 when 20 babies were cut down with an assault rifle in Sandy Hook.

  • Hahaha, Trump is bought and paid for… period. Please tell me again how he is "for the people". No new healthcare, tax cut for the wealthy, more pollution and less regulation, for profit. Taxing the masses through tariffs because he has no idea what they are or do. Mr Incompetent.

  • The Second Amendment is for people to be able to protect themselves and for the states to have their own militia. We need to limit the power of weapons people can own to an actual "personal protection" level. Anyone that wants to own hunting weapons needs a separate, more demanding license. High powered and high rate-of-fire weapons should be banned for ownership by the public. And, of course, better background checks and red-flags all around.

  • This just proves that the Repubs really are Repugnant Republikkkans! Vote the whole lot out & may this despicable party be destroyed once & for all.

  • t'rump last week: "We need intelligent background checks."
    NRA: *makes the money fingers-rubbing motion and shakes head*
    t'rump this week: "Our background checks are fine!"
    😄😆😅😂

  • All that is proposed for back-ground checks doesn’t deal with the issue that most guns used in killings are illegally obtained. Increasing gun laws on the responsible owners does little to address the problems

  • The democratic deep state corporate beast system Antichrist Network serpent legion of death is your extinction, even all of the serpent fukkpuppets and sellouts will be exterminated. You're not invited to the puppeteer party, chump.

  • Since 2001 illegals have murdered more than 63,000 American's, but that's ok with democrats. What's not ok with democrats is keeping illegals out.
    The anti American democrat party

  • MSNBC IS ALL SERPENT PERSONNEL, NO HUMANS THERE, JUST DEMON SCUM BRAINWASHING THE NATION TO BECOME BEAST SYSTEM SLAVES.

  • If half of the children being aborted ( ripped from their mothers uterus) are female, then how is this a war on women?

  • The news for 3 years: Trump is Hitler

    Also the news: Give Hitler your guns America.

    Trump is not Hitler but the second amendment is for the day there is one in charge. What other rights do you all think should be given up by US citizens?

  • When it comes to guns, DOnald Trump is very serious about how important they are in protecting you and your family from MSNBCannibal attacks

  • Nothing is going to change until corporate money is removed from Capital Hill. What we are witnessing now is fascism 101. Politicians, especially republicans, aren't working for, or representing the will of the people. Instead people like Moscow Mitch, are representing the desires and interests of corporations and special interests. This has resulted in the will of the people being completely subverted. How else would you explain the fact that at least 90% of Americans want to see new gun laws passed, and yet republicans refuse to do anything. Mitch McConnell refuses to even allow a vote on anything regarding gun legislation.

    “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerated the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.” 
    ― Franklin D. Roosevelt

  • Trump keep on protecting his corrupt money.His only concern.MUELLERS and EPSTEIN investigations coming up. Money laundering, pedophile, who cares about young people dying ? Actually about anybody dying? BARR? SENATE REPS? NO., nobody.

  • The one common dominating factor in most every mass shooting since Sandy Hook has been the Political Ideology that the shooters have embraced as their driving force and their justification for their actions…

  • THERES ALREADY BACKGROUND CHECKS AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO TAKE OUR SECOND AMENDMENT AWAY THATS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT ITS TO MAKE THEM MORE POWERFUL TO CONTROL US WITHOUT GUNS PART OF THERE NWO AGENDA BUT ITS NOT HAPPENING AND WE NEED MORE GUNS TO PROTECT OURSELVES, AND THE DEMOCRATS WANT OPEN BORDERS SO ANY I'LLEGALS FROM ANY COUNTRY CAN WALK RIGHT INTO AMERICA WITH THERE GUNS DRUGS CHILD TRAFFICKERS AND NO ONE WOULD SAY ANYTHING,BUT THEY WANT TO TAKE OUR SECOND AMENDMENT AWAY,BUT THEY WILL NEVER BE PRESIDENT OR EVER BE IN POWER EVER AGAIN SHORTLY AND THEY KNOW IT.

  • The massacred students of Virginia Tech will change something … thoughts and prayers
    The butchered toddlers of Sandy Hook will change something … thoughts and prayers
    The slaughtered people of Las Vegas will change something … thoughts and prayers
    The slayed people of El Paso will change something … thoughts and prayers
    Nothing will change and nothing will stop this. Never … thoughts and prayers

  • I'm writing Kirsten for a friend. My friend is a complete and total narcissist seeking advice on what she can do to complete herself as a full-fledged attention seeker. She says it will be great if Kirsten continues making video clips on this topic. Thank you.

  • Trump 2020 crybabies!
    I shall feast on snowflake tears yet again.

    Research Dr. Wayne Carver and Gene Rosen, you idiots will believe anything.
