  1. HE WILL SUPPORT -> NOTHINGGGGGG.
    Each time there's a shooting, he plays the big man and wants to do something … and … then … nothing.

  2. No one is taking my guns as long as I’m breathing. Period. ROBERT o’rouke can proclaim whatever he likes, u want more death by guns that will be exactly what u get when u start showing up on people’s doorsteps!

  3. It’s crazy to me that precisely when the the country is on the breaking point-I.e. exactly the time in which we ectually need our guns, is exactly when these politicians are trying get our guns, much like they did in Louisiana during Katrina. And now we have people uneducated on the subjects (to say the least) are calling for buy-backs….I don’t know about anyone else but the government NEVER owned not one of my guns..and they NEVER will. Period.

  4. Ban all guns. You don't need them to defend yourself. Against whom do you have to defend yourself?? Life isn't a movie. Nobody wants you dead. You got into an argument? Talk it out. You got into a bar fight? Don't pull out a knife. Just man up and give it your best shot. And in case of a bigger threat? Use your brain. Call the police.

  5. for fun no murders in all demms gun free zones . just 4 weeks no murders with guns .to me forcing people to obey you views is not freedom , N Korea is a gun free zone ,there they force people to obey . mass shooting are 9 % of gun death ,1/3 are suicide . 2 % are cops .. more people die in CHI town from shooting .a gun free zone then all of texas from guns . the left wants the power of the state to attack there targets , the planed unarmed victims on there lists there list , a new crime of the left will be placed on the nation

  6. "Stop the hammering! Stop the hammering!" Oops! Wrong MSLSD wack job. We have Mr. Tingling Leg here. Apparently his Depends sprang a leak.

  7. Easy. Background checks along with National Carry, national Castle Doctrine, National Stand your Ground, removal of no carry zones and minimum mandatory of 20 years for illegals with guns…..

  8. Voluntary buybacks will 100% do nothing. You don't need grandpa's Ruger 10-22. A criminal isn't turning his glock in. Stop straw manning this issue with feel good, useless legislation. At least Beto revealed what you truly are.

  9. It's not gun control…it's keeping guns out away from mental I'll crazy people.
    Families need to step up. Inform law enforcement big time..

  10. New Gun Laws? How many die in the hands of BIG PHARMA? How about news media control laws? Get caught lying/creating fake news and you get 30 days in the hole busting rocks!

  11. Schumer has armed body guards.
    Let him show US how it's done.
    Disarm your body guards already..
    Beto and others are the same.
    These elitists are hypocrites.

  12. Why do the rest of Americans have to lose their Freedom.over a few Ding Bats
    Sounds like they will consider any fire arm that can shoot more than one round,the Dem O Terrorists will consider a assault Weapon
    I remember another time in American history that firearms were ban from a race of people.
    The Indigenous people.
    Guess next the Dem O Terrorists will want to put Americans on a Reservation.

  13. BETO SPILLED THE BEANS ON THEIR REAL INTENTIONS. GUN CONFISCATION. START IN CHICAGO A* HOLES SEE HOW FAR YOU GET. SONS OF LIBERTY WILL NEVER BEND OVER FOR THE HATEFILLED SOCIALIST BOUGHT OUT TRAITOR DEMOCRATS….POUND SAND! LOCKED & LOADED PATRIOTS IN PLAIN SIGHT. TAKING BACK AMERICA 2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸

  14. Nobody has a higher claim or authority over my life family property or security. Nor do they get to decide what's a good enough reason for me to own something. If you dont like that fact, I suggest you try to test that with me and see how far you get. Just make sure your affairs are in order beforehand. It's not a threat. Its reality.

  15. All dem gun haters need do is simple. Name a gun safety law that only affects criminals. It is clear dem gun haters cannot name one! There is one reason and only one reason to own a so called assault weapon. It is my right!

  16. With flags flying? Not even one American flag seen during the joke debates by Democrats. 90% of Americans believe that additional legislation for guns is needed? Polls report that only 58% are in favor of stricter laws. 43% of American households have firearms. The NRA and GOA have some 7 million members. The current laws just need enforcement, as they will prevent any future occurrences of misuse.

  17. Where do the dems get that 90% of Americans want gun control legislation like universal background checks 10 round magazines and a ban on assault style weapons I would really like to know where they are getting this information because no one asked me what I wanted ……come to think Of it no one called and asked anyone I know

  18. No 90 percent dont agree.where are they claiming they polled anyone. Complete lies. America loves the 2nd. I suggest we get rid of the 1St. Maybe then these liars will quit spewing their vomit.

  19. Why is the fat waddling outhouse worried about 2020 he is toast anyway. His legacy is gonna be nothing but sleaze, corruption, incompetence, division, bigotry, racism and hatred! All that winning wow !

  20. Citizens of America have Second Amendment rights because they live and breath — not because government officials have chosen to bestow them with such, as some sort of privilege.

  21. Well it appears to me that the protected political elite are trying everything they can, to start a civil war. I agree that not every person should have a firearm. That being said, Those who possess firearms and are law abiding people are not the problem. If you keep pushing them to make a choice between their GOD given right to self defense or hand over their 2A. Your stirring a hornets nest! And some one could get stung. And WE don't want that, now do WE!!!

  22. Maybe someday democrats will learn and accept the difference between privileges and rights. Democrats have a long track record of getting their way by inches, and this is no exception… you're not going to inch your way to taking away our rights. Ever.

  23. This guy is another reason why America is witnessing the demise of the Democrat socialist dreamer party in America just wait for 2020 and how Real Americans come together to support the president a real American president not a Muslim it's over for the Democratic Socialist dreamer party

  24. You're not getting my guns commies. This ain't Australia and we're not going to roll over and play dead. If you want em come try to get em.

  25. The Dems attack the police, call Trump a fascist and then call for civilians to be disarmed and at the mercy of the Police and fascist Trump???? The left is making a big wager on 2020, that they will take back all the power.

  26. 90% of the American people 😂😂😂😂 what tf are these people smoking I live in as blue of a state as it gets and I don't know 1 person who supports this bill.

  27. Beto (Francis) is the Gun Salesman of the year. AR15s and other semi-autos are flying off the shelves. Gun stores are offering Ar15s at the lowest prices I have seen using discount code "BETO".
