Collins denounces violence against police: ‘Unacceptable, horrific’


THAT LOOKED INTO WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY. EARLIER I SPOKE WITH REPUBLICAN SENATOR SUSAN COLLINS OF MAINE ABOUT THIS AND ALSO ABOUT HER OWN PUSH FOR NEW GUN-CONTROL MEASURES.>>DO YOU THINK IT’S DANGEROUS TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN FERGUSON, THIS WAS SOMEWHAT SEPARATE FROM THE PHILADELPHIA ISSUE — WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING AT ALL OF THIS GUN VIOLENCE IS HAPPENING AROUND THE COUNTRY AND THESE OFFICERS PUT THEIR LIVES IN DANGER, TO GO BACK AND REWRITE WHAT HAPPENED WITH MICHAEL BROWN, KAMALA HARRIS HAS DONE THE SAME THING. THEY GOT CALLED OUT BY “THE WASHINGTON POST” FOR IT BUT THESE ARE THE SORTS OF THINGS THAT ARE SETTING CAMPAIGNS, THE TRUTH MATTERS.>>THE TRUTH DOES MATTER, AND I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE WOULD WANT TO EXACERBATE TENSIONS, IT JUST DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO ME.>>Martha: THE POLICE OFFICERS WHO WERE IN THE STREET IN PHILADELPHIA WHILE THEIR FELLOW OFFICERS WERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS FIREFIGHT WERE PELTED BY PEOPLE ON THE STREETS IN PENNSYLVANIA, HERE’S A QUICK LOOK AT THAT. [SHOUTING] THINGS ARE BEING THROWN AT THEM, WITH ALL THE WATER IN NEW YORK ON POLICE OFFICERS, THERE’S SO MUCH TENSION. THEN YOU’VE GOT THESE CRIMINALS HOLD UP IN THESE BUILDINGS SHOOTING AT POLICE OFFICERS, WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THE LEADERSHIP ABOUT HOW TO HANDLE THIS?>>IT SEEMS TO ME THAT WHAT WE JUST SAW IS INEXCUSABLE. THEY WERE LEGALLY TRYING TO SERVE A WARRANT AND THE ONE THING I HAVE READ SAID IT WAS A MINORITY OF THAT CROWD, IT WAS A SMALL NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WERE PELTING THOSE OFFICERS BUT REGARDLESS, IT’S TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE AND HORRIFIC.>>Martha: LET’S TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE TRYING TO PUT FORWARD IN TERMS OF GUN REFORMS AND GUN MEASURES. YOU HAVE BEEN A LONE VOICE FOR THIS IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, YOU SAY NOW THERE IS A MOMENT TO PASS SOME LEGISLATION, TELL ME HOW IT PLAYS OUT AND WHO IS IN FAVOR IT.>>FIRST OF ALL I’M WORKING WITH SENATOR PAT TOOMEY AND JOE MANCHIN AND WITH THE WHITE HOUSE ON MAKING SURE THAT WE CLOSED SOME LOOPHOLES IN THE BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM TO ENSURE PEOPLE WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS WHO ARE MENTALLY ILL CANNOT PURCHASE FIREARMS. THAT’S SOMETHING WE OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO UNITE AROUND. I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT RESTRICTIONS ON FAMILY MEMBERS, I WOULDN’T SUPPORT FOR EXAMPLE THE HOUSE PASSED BILL. IT IS OVERREACHED, IT GOES TOO FAR. BUT IF WE CAN COME TOGETHER WORKING WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, WORKING WITH COLLEAGUES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE AND TO SAY IF YOU ADVERTISE THE SALE OF A FIREARM OVER THE INTERNET, THERE SHOULD BE A BACKGROUND CHECK, THAT MAKES SENSE TO ME.>>Martha: DO YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT WILL STICK WITH THIS? WHAT WE’VE SEEN TOO MANY TIMES, PEOPLE SAY THIS IS THE MOMENT BECAUSE OF DAYTON AND EL PASO BUT I HAVE SAID IF IT WASN’T THE MOMENT AFTER SANDY HOOK, WHY SHOULD ANYONE BELIEVE ONCE A FEW WEEKS PASSED, IT DOESN’T GO AWA AWAY?>>THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN ENGAGED AND HE HAS TALKED TO SENATOR McCONNELL WHO HAS INDICATED A WILLINGNESS TO BRING THAT BILL TO THE FLOOR.>>Martha: DO YOU THINK MITCH McCONNELL WILL TAKE IT UP?>>I DO, I THINK WE WILL SEE SOME SORT OF RED FLAG BILL WITH VERY STRONG DUE PROCESS.>>Martha: AND YOU GET THE HOUSE ON BOARD WITH THAT? THEY SAID THEY AREN’T INTERESTED WITH ANYTHING THAT DOESN’T INCLUDE UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS.>>I’M FOR COMPREHENSIVE COMMON SENSE BACKGROUND CHECKS. I GREW UP IN THE NORTH OF MAINE WERE RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNERSHIP WAS PART OF THE HERITAGE OF EVERY FAMILY. BUT PEOPLE DON’T WANT CRIMINALS AND PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS TO BE ABLE TO PURCHASE FIREARMS, THAT’S JUST COMMON SENSE. I THINK THE DIFFERENCE THIS TIME AS WE HAVE HAD THREE INCIDENTS SO CLOSE TOGETHER, THEN LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN PHILADELPHIA AS WELL. WE HAVE THE PRESIDENT SAYING HE IS ON BOARD. MY HOPE IS THE DEMOCRATS TRULY WANT A SOLUTION AND SOME PROGRESS AND THEY AREN’T GOING TO PLAY POLITICAL GAMES WITH THIS ISSUE. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.>>Martha: THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WANTS TO REVISIT THE BRETT KAVANAUGH ISSUE, GOING BACK TO THE BUSH RECORDS AND THE WHITE HOUSE AND COMBING THROUGH THEM TO SEE IF THERE’S ANYTHING TO NEGATE HIS ABILITY TO BE A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE, WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT?>>THAT IS ABSURD. HE HAS BEEN CONFIRMED TO THE HIGHEST COURT IN THE LAND. I’VE BEEN WATCHING HIS DECISIONS, HE’S IN THE MAINSTREAM. AND FOR THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WHICH PLAYS NO ROLE IN THE CONFIRMATION PROCESS AT ALL TO SAY THAT IT HAS THE RIGHTS TO THESE CONFIDENTIAL RECORDS IS OUTRAGEOUS. IT WOULD’VE NEVER BEEN DONE IF IT WERE THE RECORDS OF

  1. Is this the same woman who said "he went a bit hard on muellar" she should really get to grips with herself no idea too OLD and needs an MOT

  2. Yes it was a small number in the crowd that was actually doing it…..the rest were cheering them on! So 🖕 all

  3. I do not see any Caucasians out assaulting the police.
    A lone wolf here and there, and ANTIFA, some but not like these folks do in the "inner cities" (ghettos).
    Pull the cops out, form a perimeter, and let them go for it. Darwin will go to work, and BoB will fix it.

  4. We have enough gun control. what need is idiot control? Collins needs to look into idiot control. She just trying shine in BS.and all ways pick gun control after killing she comes outbox.

  5. what part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED UPON" do YOU people NOT understand!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? That means NOT infringed upon, NOT even a little. NOT by democrats, NOT by republicans. Not by the hair on my chiny chin chin. Give them an inch – they will take your heads. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!

  6. Extensive criminal background. Why was this dangerous animal permitted to dwell among us? Judges who allowed him repeatedly walk should be fired.
    Rep Susan Collins seems like she has mental issues.

  7. When any group of people is encouraged to constantly see themselves as VICTIMS, that group will eventually see their bad behavior as acceptable.

  8. Everyone going after the cops were like, they are trying to steal our dope getem. I feel for the junkies. It destroys lives and the news blames police

  9. The main reason people buy guns on the black market, because they don’t do background checks!
    Downside is they don’t plastic.

  10. INTERESTING that Fox news has comments available on all videos except those that involve Omar and Tlaib Hmmm You are part of the problem

  11. This old bat needs to go buy a gun and see for herself how it works. Now if you plan to use the commerce clause to regulate private transfers then say so… just say you want to restrict private sales. It's not a loophole. There is no loophole…there is no class of sale by a dealer (to an individual) that does not require a check. This lady is an example of the idiots that write the laws.

  12. How about the black market,under the tables,????deals without Ba ckgrownnn checks it's useless EVIL 😡 not Sleeping 😴😴 😴🙏😱🌹God Bless America 💯 world,am supporters with Police officers ❣️🌹🌹🌹🌹

  13. Hey Sue, what about violence against unborn babies. I mean you support abortion, righ?. Seems to me an abortionist thrusting some sort of surgical weapon into a womb and tearing a baby apart piece by piece is pretty violent.

  14. If you take away the guns from the good, how does one protect from the bad? The good, not prefect would and could protect the innocent, but if one takes away those rights then we the people are open for destruction and I say this because EVIL and there is evil get their drugs and weapons through the dead of night, illegally,even the deep state, corrupted as most are fine evil to do evil, so the good MUST be able to defend themselves and/or others so the law's must conform for this, and also there can and should be, with the help of the NRA, yearly checks with the good, the Patriots of America.
    Also there should be law's against ANYONE who ASSAULTS a cop, a police officer, who serves and protects, the people!!!

  15. All the knee-grows …..
    Why is it, for years….
    If a white man walked in a black neighborhood, he would fear his life!
    If a black guy walked in a white neighborhood, people would flee…
    And what exactly will MORE gun laws do….

  16. Have they ever actually purchased a firearm over the internet? They can only ship to a licensed firearm dealer who MUST do a background check.

  17. Sen. Susan Collins needs to go, she is totally anti Trump, Maine should vote for someone that has THEIR best interests at heart, not this dumb person Rhino, God Bless OUR President Donald Trump #2020

  18. This woman should just keep quiet and retire, she is nothing but a rhino in the senate. She hates Trump too.

  19. It is also a small minority that commit gun violence. The cities that have the most restrictive gun laws have the highest gun violence. More laws won't fix it.

  20. Oppose any new GUN LAWS, SUSAN! Our wise Tulsa Mayor refused to sign the call for MORE GUN LAWS. This is a ploy and we in OKLAHOMA SEE IT! We are watching what you do too, and are hoping you are wise enough to see through the ploys to take away our 2nd Amendment rights. This is a cause this elderly lady would come to Washington to PROTEST! FOCUS on background check tightening and those who are inciting others to "get into people's FACE. THEY are inciting this violence, including disrespect for our brave Police, ICE, etc. Work with our President, please.

  21. What is worse than Terrorists? Democrat Politicians inciting violence while trying to stop you from defending yourself against them. I'm not selling or giving my guns to the mentally insane sociopaths and communist democrat criminals. These Tyrants are the very reason for the 2A.

  22. STEP OFF my second amendment. GOVERNMENT OVER REACH. Gun control is a nice way of saying people control. They can't RULE you until you are helpless and defenseless and totally dependent on the GOVERNMENT.

  23. MENTALLY ILL is so subjective…. EVERY VETERAN that has a nightmare or mentions it will be deemed mentally ill and have their rights stripped. THIS is what they want is to strip the VETS first because they pose the biggest and most prominent threat to their power.

  24. Martha, you are such a never Trumper. and Collins, you are such a weak RINO. you should quit your job. We conservatives do not need some spineless rino like you.

  25. Funny how no one even mentions the thousands of unarmed people they shoot and the evidence tampering and the withholding of evidence and the covering up each other's crimes and the lies and the wrongdoing never punished. They're just all like, what a complete mystery everyone hates them! Talk about stupid.

  26. Loop-holes in existing law should be fixed and this should not be a need for new controls. No one wants felons getting guns or the mentally ill. The concern is the criteria for what constitutes the seriously mentally ill. These can be defined but must be stuck to. Any legislation that keeps guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens will not have success.

  27. Interesting side note: A white child recognizes "itself" in a mirror between six months and a year. An African black child doesn't recognize them self until around five years of age. Put your own spin on what that means.

  28. They denounce violence against the police, but what do they say about violence by the police on innocent civilians? NOTHING. That should tell you a lot.

  29. i want to thank Dr Jadu for the spell he did for me after i lost my husband to another lady at his working place, Dr Jadu cast a spell for me and in 3 days my husband return home to my kids with so much love,if you need his help!! contact [email protected]@t or watsaap +971552789067

  30. There were a Small number of [75] people? PELTING? [aka ASSAULTING] the POLICE COMMITTING battery on an OFFICER and MOB ACTIONS [also in other wonderful DEMOCRATIC inner CITY'S] nothing to LOOK AT HERE right Mrs (COLLIN'S) ?
    When ARE WE GOING TO ADDRESS THE TRUTH?
    IN GOD WE TRUST
    🌟🌟🌟🇺🇸☝🖐🇺🇸🌟🖐☝👉👍🏻

  31. I denounce Congress persons who are running around denouncing stuff and doing everything except the things that they are meant to be doing. Yeah, I know, Recess, blablabla. But the only visible difference between recess and day to day, appears to be that day to day has more TDS.

  32. Both of the recent mass attackers were hard-core leftists; how smart to get rid of peoples rights by making these horrible events happens. Sick and sad!

  33. The political acceptance of BLM's agenda to marginalize the police was fully accepted by Obama with the "police behaving badly" quote, which greenlighted violence toward the police ever since. Everytime Trump honors the police, the media makes sure it gets drowned out.

  34. Disgusting and disturbing, Martha McCallum is a Bwitch and has been recruited and hired by the liberal Democrats to begin to act like the other anti-Trump reporters such as Juan Williams, Chris Wallace and Shepard Smith.

  35. Collins is like a Rino swing Vote both democratic and republicans work for the lobbyist Not the People remember that come 2020 vote Trump Veto the crap out of these Globalist Puppets

  36. The fact that you believe its possible to purchase a firearm on the internet, without a background check, you're a fool.

  37. Fox News and all these Elites don't care shootings will happen because the population continues to grow not because it took problem. That's what we have laws to enforce them duh!!!!!🤦‍♂️

  38. Not once this old lady mention about the American people as part of the decision-making if you notice she just talks about individuals about him or her she don't think that us Americans should have any saying in anyting she just wants us to accept these laws I don't even know who she is do you

  39. We DO NOT need ANYMORE "gun laws" what we NEED is a LESS DIVISIVE, RHETORIC FILLED MEDIA and enforcement of EXISTING LAWS!!! Oh yeah, and since the left just loves homosexuality, basically taking away the MAIN THING that people fear about prison, HOW ABOUT SOME CAPITOL PUNISHMENT?!?! People have to FEAR breaking the law, not just be expected not to. You CANNOT legislate human behavior, and laws that affect LAW ABIDING citizens in regards to your gun laws are NOT laws at all! They are UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

  40. how can you kno if a person is mentally ill or crazy ? i you cant ! plus u cant buy guns without a permit or if u are a criminal come on she is full of bullsh-t plus most of these guns are being sold out the back door or in the trunk of a car every where… this is a easy fix if they wanted to fix it they need to stop producing guns for sale and if u have a permit and want to buy a gun u must order it so they can make it for the buyer with the registerd buyers permit number its that easy im not saying a permit holder cant go crazy and start shoting people just saying ther will be less guns out for sale on the streets

  41. Why have we been BRAINWASHED into believing that felons don't have a RIGHT like everyone else does to DEFEND themselves? Does this mean their lives are discounted?

    What's a "criminal"?

    Criminal = A transgressor of the LAW

    See how they do it?

    They have made so many laws that a person can't even walk or drive down the street without breaking the law.

    DECEIT IS EVERYWHERE!!!

  42. shall not be infringed! that what you said lady is infringement, what is already in the books is an infringement, we need to walk those back and let everybody defend themselves not just the criminals shuld have guns but everybody should have the right to defend themselves.

  43. we already have back ground checks, and you have to be stupid to think any criminal is gonna listen to the laws !!! the problem is mental and drugs .. no more gun laws !!

  44. Please, don't be fooled! The democrats have organized the recent massive killings in the US to undermind the Trump's government.

  45. Ha! The "leadership in those cities." There is absolutely none. Leftists don't lead, they spread and thrive on chaos.

  46. Cops 👮‍♀️ have to get tougher with protesters. Other countries you get beat. No respect for cops 👮 here in America. If cops 👮‍♀️ shoot a bad guy, they get sued. Losers don’t matter. Call the national guard for Chicago.

  47. I'd like to support you Collins but your back tracking on our fine President and your attempt to take our guns is enough to make me campaign against you and I have no respect for this fake conservative interviewing you .

  48. I cannot wait to see Susan Collins of Maine voted out of office she is a republican Rino has not stuck up for the Republican said all she spend many of times stabbing the president in the back her and her sidekick Alaska murkowski both need voted out 2020 remember that people

  49. This lady is purely ignorant of existing gun laws. ALL GUN sold by a registered FFL holder will require a background check before completion of the sale.

  50. Leftists in charge of those states are crimminals, they support all crimes to policemen and decent citizens. They all have to go! It's crazy to see the corruption they have. ENOUGHT is ENOUGHT.

  51. More people die from beatings and knife attacks than by guns every year. Criminals can get guns off the black market they don't go to the gun store and fill out a back ground check. This lady dose not know and is not educated in the ways of the, "law of the streets." And we need to clean out our police departments of dirty cops. Those cops in Philly and else where probably deserved it. I saw a judge get paid 20,000 dollars to drop meth charges. Happens all the time.

  52. Once upon a time “military style weapons” were mandatorily owned by every man of age so that if invaded (very real possibility for us today) the president could do a call to arms. Arming the populace was not just for one reason. The Two main reasons were to keep our own government in check but to also defend against foreign invasion. Even though this occurred a very long time ago do you believe that we are at less risk of these things now? How about our fueds with China Russia Iran or other American hating countries? How about politicians forcing these regulations on 1st and second amendments? You think police brutality is bad now wait until you give up or allow them to take these rights!

  53. hate my lawmaker shes so weak helping fbi&dems frame new USA pres..fox still blames Russia..ambassador murry&assange say it was DNC staffer

  54. Finally. A politician who is actually trying to do what she thinks is right. The NRA will be on her like white on rice.

  55. Denounce This!  
    TEMPORARY Trump Tax Cuts for 99% (THAT'S YOU)  is temporary and will expire 2026, 
     Trump Tax Cuts for Corporation and America's wealthiest is Permanent – PERMANENT!

    One minute after December 31, 2025 YOU will have to pay for the one percent. Amazon didn't pay taxes but you will. Happy New Year!? 

    THINK 'TRUST BUT verify!'
    Trump tells you he was a billionaire before the election and you don't want to verify it! Trust but verify!

    The White House wants to gut the nation’s social safety net to give more funding to nation’s defense programs and allow for tax cuts primarily benefiting corporations and America’s wealthiest.

  56. Collins calls out violence? Really, will she also call out for breathing air? she so has no courage or conviction, I am a Rep but I am embarrassed she is my Senator (I am from Maine)

  57. Always a small number of people who commit the violence but the large crowd doing nothing to speak up against of stop it empowers them. What's the saying, All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing?

  58. Susan Collins of Maine, why don't you do what your pal Olympia Snow did? She retired and you need to retire also. You both ran around with that phony label "Republicans" when you both were hard core Democrats. Get out of office and put in some new REAL REPUBLICANS and not RINO's either. Stay in Maine and talk to your friend Olympia.
