Comments
  1. Traitor trump and his cult members are a subculture and would be happier in a place of their own. They refuse to be educated. We will have to tell them what to do same as now with trump telling them what to do and think.But they are weak and willing to be lead.

  2. Anyone who gives use of their guns to another and that person commits a crime should be charged along with the person committing the crime.

  3. It's starting to be that even in states with real loose gun laws people will look at a person carrying a gun as a nut. I noticed that here in Arizona a few years ago.

  4. Think criminals and psycho’s care about gun laws?😂 In case you didn’t know, criminals buy their guns off the streets. Also, they commit crimes more often in areas that have strict gun laws, for obvious reasons (less chance of getting shot, better chance of succeeding at their objective). Also, do people actually think mass shootings will stop if assault rifles are banned? Of course they wont stop!!! Guess what happens after that? Yup, they will undoubtedly try to ban pistols as well. This now is simply phase one in disarming our citizens, something the UN has been trying to do for decades. People should embrace the fact that we have the right to protect ourselves, our family, our property and our fellow citizens from a life threatening situation. We also have the right to protect ourselves from tyranny. Given current attacks on free speech, censorship from big tech, daily outward bias and misinformation from the media, a large spike in taxes proposed by the left (all of these are tyrannical/fascist), you may want to think twice about letting your government put limits on how you lawfully decide to protect you and your loved ones. If a loved one of yours is at a store and there is an active shooter with a pistol shooting people, wouldn’t you hope someone there has a gun to take him down? Be very careful. Criminals will find guns regardless of gun laws. Lets not use LAWS to take guns out of the hands of responsible citizens. This would be a catastrophic mistake. Best wishes!

  5. How long did he mourn his pedo pal Jeffery Epstein? He didn't; He's just glad no one found the pics of pre-teen Ivanka in her panties that Donnie Dickhead gave him.

  6. Dems should have impeached Trump their first day in the House as Individual 1, a co-conspirator in a felony. The way things are going Trump will complete his full term and Dems will still be investigating.

  7. Yeah right WHY ARE YOU NOT TALKING ABOUT THE Hurricane Dorian updates Bahamas AND ALL THE LIVES LOST TO THIS STROM 1000'S ARE DEAD AND NO ONE THERE TO REALLY HELP THESE PEOPLE WHAT IS WRONG WITH tRUMP when this comes out the people are going to be UPSET that this has taken do LONG TO COME OUT

  8. Sorry, but I'm for the second amendment. It's in our rights. What has to be changed is not allowing for big companies to be bullied.
    We're not impeaching the president. Now… mental illness is not a Trump problem.
    What a biased report. And Joe from West Virginia is a con, waffling, anything to stay in his seat.

  9. I'm sick of this "Mueller failed because it was dull TV" crap.

    Did no-one read the report?
    Did no-one listen to what he said?

    Russia. Attacked. America's. Elections.
    They did it for the express purpose of benefitting Donald Trump.

    Although no Americans were charged with criminal conspiracy, there were numerous secret contacts between Trump's businesses and known members or associates of Russian Intelligence, where election information and policies regarding Russian sanctions were involved. That. Is. Collusion.

    Furthermore, the Trump campaign was fully aware of thr Russian interference and expected to gain from it.

    Donald Trump awaits charges of 10 counts of Obstruction of Justice into the investigation of further evidence of the above. The only thing keeping him free from prosecution is the fact he is a sitting President.

    How can people just forget all this?!

    HOW MUCH MORE CARNAGE DOES THE AMERICAN PUBLIC HAVE TO ENDURE BEFORE THIS ‘DO NOTHING, SEND OUR CONDOLENCES’ GOVERNMENT TAKES ACTION TO GET RID OF THESE RAPID FIRE KILLING MACHINES?!

    WE ALSO NEED MORE MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIES!

  11. this day helped me feel somewhat better, hearing Rep Swalwell speak amazingly intelligent I felt reassured we will fix what this administration has and is doing.

  12. It is ludicrous that Individual 1 is even allowed to seek a 2nd term. And that people will vote for him. I know…you like all his hateful rhetoric and inhumane policies…rah rah rah…go Trump 2020 …blah blah blah. Good luck in the afterlife.

  13. The American people needs to vote blue this potus has to go he doesn't care about anyone america has gotten worst since he became president so once again please American people vote in 2020 💙

  14. Meanwhile, Trump is continuing to do Putin's bidding by diverting funds from our military and funds earmarked to help Ukraine resist Russia's aggression against their country.

  15. It is only problematic because Trump is owned by Corporations & Special Intrest Groups. His actions are dictated by people that have evidence & loans against him. He is not loyal to the Constitution, he is not loyal to the American People He is not loyal to those that back him. He cares nothing for the struggles of our military. You folks do know 5 American Sons went in his place to Vietnam. His number came up 5 times in the Draft. Five times his Daddy bought him an out. that means the next one in line went in his place. He has no gratitude for that, for the sacrifice of those parents because more young men went than came back. I remember it was like a sea of coffins. Mr. Bush learned a big lesson from Vietnam he made it illegal to film the soldiers coming home in coffins for the first 8 years of this 18+ year seemingly never-ending war. Here he is again stealing the lives of America's Sons & Daughters in our Military. For Shame. How can you not feel sick to your stomachs by these actions & behaviors?

  16. LET'S HOLD TRAITOR OBAMA ACCOUNTABLE FOR THD OVER 200 MASX SHOOTINGS DURING HIS FAILED PRESIDENCY AND BUSH AND CLINTON. SEE YOUR NOT FOOLING ANYBODY AND WHAT DID SNY OF THOSE PRESIDENTS DO NOTHING THAYS WHAT.DUHHHHH

  17. A Criminal will get a gun anywhere he wants background checks MEAN NOTHING.DUHHHH U STUPID AHH DIDN'T KNOW THAT REALLY THE CRIMINALS CAN GET GUNS EVEN AFTER A BACKGROUND CHECK DUHHHH SO STUPID I SHOULD OF KNOWN BUT IM STUPID FAKE LYING NEWS.

  18. Doing nothing is what the dems do best. We've seen it for the last 2.5 years. Nothing but big talk and no action. Cowards.

  19. CVS, Walgreens, Wegmars, and Walmart have asked Americans to stop carrying guns in their stores. Why would you shop in a store with your children in a store where Americans carry guns?

  20. Don’t worry Wayne Lapierre is running the show , it’s not their children , their families that are killed by guns , they valued guns & 💰more than the life of others .

  21. "A gun, like any other source of power, is a force for either good or evil, being neither in itself, but dependent upon those who possess it."

  22. This guy left his presidential run behind, now he's letting himself go with his facial hair? Eric is looking kind of homeless. My mans facial hair looks spotted, I see areas with no hair, Eric must have been hunting in the woods, without a CVS in sight.

  23. Moscow Mitch is your real problem in all of this get a investigation on that one and watch the house of cards really fall….

  24. You can only impeach a sitting president or member of Congress, Donald Trump is neither. He is a man without Country since his warm embrace of Vladimir Putin at Helsinki. Treason removes the value of citizenship, He is no longer protected by United States laws. Treason is only punishable by death based off our own US codes. He sided with foreign adversaries against our military, against our Intel community, against the American people. He has supported terrorism both foreign and domestic for the last 20 years. By any rational standard he is not an American and must be removed from his position with extreme prejudice.

  25. Why, are the lawful gun owners practicing open carry behind all the shootings? That is news to me. I thought these murder sprees were caused by white nationalists. Why arent they getting banned from society?

  26. Moscow Mitch said he doesn't want any more new gun law policies they are just fine the way they are .
    Make America Safe Again Moscow Mitch

  27. People need to watch the mindless moron swalwell and how he just panders to people and stirs up discontent but, legitimately has nothing when it comes to his disagreements with the President..
    https://youtu.be/LnyicEmQKVc

  28. Swalwell should well know that Lewandowski, McGahn and others SHOULD just put Congress in the position to claim ‘inherent contempt,’ allowing them to arrest and detain those subpoenaed if they obstruct justice. It hasn’t been done in a long time but the rule is still there, and there’s nothing like putting someone in a jail cell for a few days to change their mind about testifying. Also, did anyone else wonder if Swalwell missed trimming one side of his face? It looks like he’s one side Wolfman and one side normal.

  29. Just disolve the terror-organization NRA and arrest its circle of corrupt leaders already.
    It has obviously proven itself to be a threat against the citizens of USA multiple times as it is…

  30. Congress haha married to uncles brothers affairs bailing thugs from prison haha its circus a freak show I sell morals from england but you people can have them 50% off give up all your guns give full control to your masters and end up like London stabistan donkeys pmsl,

  31. Come on now, WE know that the NRA law's are for theirs weapons of mass destruction. Profit over HUMAN life:::

    Brainwashing the kid, put weapon in one hand and plans in the other.
    Pro life, right?

    WHO IS PROTECTING AMERICA from the criminal in WH?
    FBI, CIA, SS, DOJ etc. Works for the PEOPLE, protecting our CHILDREN from the terrorist in this America.
    45 has no ethics of self, he love self and nobody else.
    Destroying America from within with all his friends.

    While the republicans are running for the hills.
    Inside trading on the sides, following the money:::

  32. While you're at it, charge Moscow Mitch with obstructing and impeding Congress! Throw Barr in there also! Take em out. Drain that swamp!

  33. Yes lets follow along with swalwell, the guy who couldn't make it through the process for what 2 months? Such a loser. You can have all the gun laws you want you're only going to cause more people to be killed. The amount of damage a shooter does depends on how long it takes a good guy with a gun to arrive. Anything used to assault someone becomes an assault weapon. What are you going to do ban knifes,axes, hammers etc.? Why not the dems already plan on banning cars, planes and cows

  34. I agree Rep. Swalwell but have absolutely NO confidence in US politicians. GOONS OF PUTIN aka GOP are anti democracy and pro money. Democrats seem (my party) are docile and merely crybabies. I'm sick of talk talk talk. WHEN for FS is anyone going to show some spine? At one time I respected Pelosi. Now I view her as yet another T Rump enabler.
    Doesn't congress have the power to imprison those who obstruct congress? If one person is locked up I'd bet the others will show up and speak before congress. But this would be a bolder move than any docile Democrat will ever take. Shame… What a bunch of self serving SOB'S we have a high ranking government officials.

  35. I'm no Trump supporter but criminals don't care how many laws you pass against guns, THAT'S WHY THEY'RE CRIMINALS, someone starts shooting you don't have time to call the police, you need to be armed and ready to protect yourselves. This crap will quarantee Trump a second term

  36. THANK YOU.

  38. I'm considering a lot of big very huge things on gun reform & we will , very soon be holding a very important conference ( At one of my hotels . chaa ching $$$$$)
    to talk about these , Ha Ha Ha issues .

  39. To date the president has shown he is above the law. If you cannot enforce the law when a president in plain site has shown you how corrupt he is and yet you still cannot make the laws work for the American people then Congress is impotent. Universal immunity from answering questions before Congress >>>>>>> ? WTF is that ? its worked.

  41. I love these comments 😂 everyone acts like they know how to help this problem yet everything they have said will do nothing to help gun violence. This is a culture problem. These guns have been around for 60-70 years and we have only had a mass shooting problem for 20-25 years. Not to mention most mass shootings are with handguns and less then 3% of all gun deaths are with semi auto rifles (AR15s). Banning so called Assault WeApOnS, which is a made up term, will do nothing to save lives. I wish people would do more research about political topics.

  42. Everytime you see a machoman with a gun, call 911 and report a gunman. Let machoman explain to the cops why he has a gun in McDonald's and the cops can do a background check at that point. Machoman might decide, after he has been stopped, searched and briefly detained many times, that he really doesn't need a weapon to go to McDonald's.

  43. As exhausting his lies , theiving, and cheating American is I don't see how this stress he causes himself doesn't affect him medically. I can't believe he doesn't have ulcers, cancer or heart problems. He is an old man and walking around with all this havoc 24/7

  44. Banning guns from Walmart just made them all a soft target. they will most likely be riddled by bullets. I personally will not be shopping at those stores. Because I value my life and deserve to protect it. Sorry but not sorry.

  45. Swallowing head, this guy is a Marxist Democrat sole loser and a clown. Also, I believe he was diagnosed with an advanced condition of mouth diarrhea!

  46. Wow. Businesses banning customers from bringing their guns into the shops.
    Just goes to show what is normal in different countries.
    We don’t even see our (NZ) police with guns. They are allowed pepper sprays, batons and tasers.
    If we ever see a gun… it’s serious and national news.
