  1. #MoscowMitch you don't work for the President you work for the People, If you're not up to the challenge then step down.

  2. Dems bills on gun control are unconstitutional in procedure. Dems passed bills are so far left with no compromise they will NEVER pass. Their way or the hwy. The biggest cause of gun violence in America is the Drugs & Gangs and the Left doesn't want to address ANY of that. They want the crimes to continue. Just like sanctuary cities letting criminals go, again and again and again.

  3. This is stupid, they are not taking guns away they are just wanting to make sure the wrong people do not have easy access to them. Is like they want this to continue.

  4. How is this a democracy and not a dictatorship, over 90% of Americans want this but two men in DC have the power to stop it? You tell me if I'm wrong.

  5. Trump supporters love their guns more than their kids! 2nd amendment is about the balance of power between the government and we the people, to put it simply! It's not about you dimwits carrying guns on our streets. Wild Wild West & Humans don't hunt for food any longer, and if they do, they don't need AK-47 or Kalashnikov. Trump is a plague on this land.

  6. It's tRump's fault they will take guns away. There's too many domestic terrorists who are white nationalists tRump cultists.
    Wtf kind of sissies hunt with assault weapons! Use a regular rifle smh.

  7. Australia hasn't had a mass shooting since Port Arthur in '94. That's 25 years ago people. Ban semi auto high capacity mag. guns. These are weapons of war that have no place in hunting or home defence.

  8. The dems are all to busy gender transitioning to get anything serious done. The looming specter of the MSNBC high society, the dark and foreboding source of MSNBC evil spirit energy, is not well. I sense these things. Steadfast, yes stay the course, you secular fascist neocon boot lickers. People often make fun of those that sense things, I do not think that is funny, perhaps one day of day's, you yourself shall see things the same way.

  9. Hello people hello world this is the Mississippi Boy again now here's something to think about now there's a Democrat sales are Republicans Here We Stand By and Watch the Republicans run this world run this country even though the Democrats have more people's more Independence on their side give them more right to vote and their vote with stand for something but he has today why Donald Trump is President white nationalist and the fuel Republicans still on the power of Washington DC something is wrong with this picture hear something my brothers and sisters by minorities my Christians white brothers and sisters something is wrong with this picture why is it white nationalists is more powerful then I'll race they have more Authority than all race they run this country and we have to buy them down to them of their law there obey which we have to obey them and they destroying this country in the world and we stand by sit by and do nothing what's wrong with us

  10. I tell you what.. Black people, go out enmass and get a legal registered fire arm and I bet you MONEY they will do something then..😑😒

  11. In democratic society with three co-equal branches of government, what is the point of legislative branch if they won't do their job without president's pre-approval. In light of these, just recent, mass shootings and with overwhelming public support for one particular bill, to call voting on that bill "theatrics" is just reckless.

  12. Why don't you just admit that Trump told you not to present any legislation for signing into law that he doesn't like? You are just playing his game… By doing what he instructs you let him avoid the stigma and negativity of vetoing the legislation because he considers that it might make him "look bad".

  13. I have only this to say for McTurtle…
    (clears throat and press start on the cd-player)
    (cue music)
    "MOVE Mitch! Get out the way! Get out the WAY"
    (music keeps playing)

  14. must have been a lovely lunch, sitting around with full bellies, while children starve in cages, useless bureaucrats, if only they were just useless, not evil

  15. You don't have to have the President's signature. If the House and Senate pass a bill that the President vetoes, it returns to the House and Senate. If the House and Senate then vote and each pass the bill by a 2/3 vote, the bill becomes law without the President's signature. McConnell is just afraid that he will anger the Orange One if he lets the Senate vote on a bill that the Orange One doesn't like. Since the Orange One refused to sign a bill he agreed to for the country's budget, what makes Moscow Mitch think that even if the Orange One agrees to sign, that he actually will. Moscow Mitch needs to grow a pair and let the Legislative Branch function as it should. Moscow Mitch has to go!

  16. Maybe people of color and all Liberals, especially women need to start arming themselves and I bet gun legislation gets passed in a hurry

  17. They should call the Democrats lazy hazy crazy days of summer 'recess' because they behave like little children, wasting our time and tax dollars on stupid investigations that will go nowhere while leprosy and typhus are here in Los Angeles, as a present from their open border policies.

  18. As I stated before Mitch said he would'nt take a vote on anything unless he knew the president would sign it. Does the Congress make the laws. Mitch must go.

  19. Liberal doublespeak language: enhanced background checks = gun registration; Red Flag = gun confiscation and/or death of gun owner; Hi-Capacity Magazine ban = incremental gun confiscation; Mandatory gun buyback = gun confiscation. State governments have already waged war on their citizens with similar tactics passing these unconstitutional laws and nobody did anything. Now the government is more emboldened to roll out the same across all states. Lets hope the same spirit of Americans exists now as it did in 1776. If not we will just go down in history as another failed "Socialist Utopia" like Venezuela. Now you know how once prosperous countries turn into cesspools and in the extreme as history warns us that governments commit democide.

  20. The hearing protection act is gun control both parties should get behind if they are serious about sensible gun control legislation.

  21. Who is protecting these Senators from the public……what a stupid question, time to retire. Elections every six years and no term limits protect them. Working 1/3 of the year must be awesome for near $200,000.

  22. No! In my country Congress is an INDEPENDENT body that votes yes or no; then, and only then the POTUS intervenes or not. To not do anything until the President this President makes up his mind is nuts! Go home Mitch.

  23. The Dems are back from recess, and boy are they going to talk up a storm. Maybe they'll sign a petition or a resolution, or start another investigation or even take to the streets and shake their fingers in the air. However, this could really create a problem for the Republicans when they fall to the floor laughing at them and possibly break a rib or two. GO DEMS!

  24. Returning form recess to get voted out in 2020 for trying to take our guns. Take your gun control and shove it up your butt, you communist demonrats.

  25. i thought that the senate, house of rep and the oval office were designed to check policy, not to cover each of their faults.. maybe i learned it wrong.

  26. We trannies don't want you to have guns. Wanting to protect your straight wholesome families is sooooo scary. Demon power!

  27. I was a hardcore Democrat until they started this gun control crap. Sorry, but I'm leaving the Democratic party and voting Trump in 2020 to protect my gun.

  28. Take all guns away, do a buy back and give 3 month amnesty, after its jail if you continue gun procession . Whats with Americans and the 2nd amendment, get the 2nd amendment changed.

  29. As Moscow Mitch shld know, a Congress can apply pressure on a POTUS by presenting him a bill, forcing him to either sign or veto it. PresPAB has rarely had the spine to veto a bill, especially one that has 90% support from Americans. Moscow Mitch won't put the big coward into that position, nor will he make his GOP members hafta choose betw all the $$$ the NRA dumps into their campaigns, esp the dark Russian $$$, and doing something nearly all their constituents want.

  30. Nancy Pelosi is running out the clock on Trump impeachment in case Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic primaries. "IF" Bernie Sanders wins the primaries the DNC will join forces with their brothers and sisters the Republicans to battle Bernie Sanders.

  31. Kudos to chris and the majors for bringing this topic to the forefront , but again we have moscow mitch blocking everything…..Ita a little strange for a senator , and republican leader to be boasting that he is blocking everything particularly on a topic as sensitive as this…….and let us say now ,the american people want something done, and when [rather than if] the next mass shooting happens and nothing has been done….then those deaths are on moscow mitch's head , so he better get as much money from those russians sponsors in Kentucky before the next election 🙁

  32. The Repugnicanse all are scared you can tell watch interviews from months back versus now their voices crack more, they studer more, they get reder and more fidgety.

  33. Trump's biggest supporters are people who love Guns and hate Gun Control would cost him the election so i can see why Liberals would want him to crackdown on Gun control with his 2020 election coming up

  34. I am sorry Moscow Mitch, this is REAL, People are getting killed. STAND AMERICA for Gun Control and voter Rights. Boycott NRA, #45* and NRA betrayed our country working for Russia. VOTE 2020

  35. Demorats, St. Alexandria blocked a gun control bill weeks ago. Why you phonies keep talking to people like we're idiots is disgraceful. If you trouble makers don't know what's going on in your own manure pile, don't try to pull the fur over our eyes. Resign and let a younger person in who doesn't have Alzheimer's.

  36. Gun control will put the Democratic party on life support. Gun control is political suicide, and these stupid Dems are believing these phony polls that say the majority wants gun control. Just look at the comment sections on you tube, and how many people are against any form of gun control.
