Sen. Kennedy: I believe love is the answer, but I own a handgun just in case


>>THE PRESIDENT HAS MADE CLEAR HE IS INTERESTED IN ANY MEANINGFUL AND WORKABLE MEASURES THAT CAN PROVIDE GREATER SECURITY FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, PROTECT THEM AGAINST CRIME. I DON’T WANT TO GET INTO DISCUSSING ANY PARTICULAR PROPOSAL AT THIS TIME BUT WE’RE HAVING ROBUST DISCUSSIONS UP HERE.>>Sandra: ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR HAS BEEN MEETING WITH SENATE REPUBLICANS THIS WEEK ON GUN REFORM. WHEN WILL WE ULTIMATELY SEE A PLAN OR PROPOSAL FROM THE PRESIDENT? AND WILL BOTH SIDES BE ABLE TO COME TOGETHER ON THIS VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE? LOUISIANA SENATOR JOHN KENNEDY JOINS US NOW. SENATOR KENNEDY, GOOD MORNING TO YOU. PERHAPS YOU CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION. WILL WE SEE BOTH SIDES COME TOGETHER AND PUT SOMETHING BEFORE THE PRESIDENT HE IS WILLING TO SIGN?>>I DON’T KNOW YET, OF COURSE. I WOULDN’T BET MY HOUSE ON IT. AND IF I WERE BETTING YOUR HOUSE, SANDRA, I WOULD PROBABLY SAY MAYBE. WE HAVE TO SEE WHAT THE PROPOSALS ARE FIRST. THE PRESIDENT’S OPINION MATTERS. I MET WITH BILL BARR YESTERDAY. I THINK THE WHITE HOUSE SENT HIM UP HERE BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE IN THE SENATE HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR HIM. THEY ARE LOOKING AT — THEY HAVEN’T FINALLY DECIDED — THEY’RE LOOKING AT EXPANDED BACKGROUND CHECKS. THERE ARE TWO GROUPS OF PEOPLE BEHIND THESE BILLS. THERE IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT I THINK IN GOOD FAITH HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT FURTHER CURTAILING OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS WILL ENHANCE PUBLIC SAFETY. BUT THERE IS ANOTHER GROUP THAT JUST HATES THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND I WANT TO THANK CONGRESSMAN BETO O’ROURKE FOR BEING HONEST. HIS HONESTY WAS REFRESHING.>>Sandra: YOU ARE REFERENCING HIM DOUBLING DOWN THAT HE IS WILLING TO CONFISCATE GUNS. HERE IS THE CONGRESSMAN IN HIS OWN WORDS. LET’S GET YOU TO REACT TO THIS.>>ARE YOU IN FACT IN FAVOR OF GUN CONFISCATION?>>YES WHEN IT COMES TO AR-15s AND AK-47s, WEAPONS DESIGNED FOR USE ON A MILITARY BATTLEFIELD.>>Sandra: SENATOR KENNEDY?>>I WANT TO THANK THE CONGRESSMAN FOR BEING HONEST BECAUSE I DON’T AGREE WITH HIM. BETO’S COPY OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS GOES FROM ONE TO THREE. MINE INCLUDES THE SECOND AMENDMENT. BUT THERE ARE A WHOLE HOST OF PEOPLE HERE IN WASHINGTON, D.C., NOT ALL OF MY DEMOCRATIC FRIENDS BUT MANY OF THEM, THEY DON’T BELIEVE IN THE SECOND AMENDMENT. THEY WOULD BE HAPPY TO CONFISCATE AMERICA’S GUNS. AND IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE THAT, THEN YOU PROBABLY ALSO STILL BELIEVE IN BIG FOOT. IT’S A FACT AND EVERYBODY UP HERE KNOWS IT.>>Sandra: WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO SUPPORT?>>I DON’T — NOTHING YET. I TOLD BILL BARR YESTERDAY I’M WILLING TO READ THE BILLS AND STUDY THEM CAREFULLY. BUT THE BURDEN OF PROOF IS ON PEOPLE WHO WANT TO FURTHER CURTAIL OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS. THE BILL OF RIGHTS IS NOT AN ALA CARTE MENU. IT’S AS IMPORTANT AS THE FOURTH AND FIRST AND I MADE MY POSITION VERY CLEAR. I BELIEVE LOVE IS THE ANSWER BUT I OWN A HANDGUN JUST IN CASE. I OWN SEVERAL. I OWN SHOTGUNS. IT IS MY RIGHT AS AN AMERICAN. WE HAVE WELL OVER 100 MILLION LAW ABIDING AMERICANS THAT IT IS BEING PROPOSED THEIR RIGHTS SHOULD BE CURTAILED. I WANT TO SEE CAUSAL, SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT IS GOING TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY SAFER AND REDUCE MASS SHOOTINGS. I DON’T WANT SPECULATION. I DON’T WANT DORM ROOM IDEAS, I WANT THE PROPONENTS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT TO ME. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT.>>Sandra: YOU ARE WAITING TO HEAR FROM THE PRESIDENT AND WHAT HE IS WILLING TO SUPPORT BEFORE YOU’LL GO PUBLIC WITH YOUR SUPPORT OF –>>I WANT TO SEE THE PRESIDENT’S BILL AND I WANT TO SEE THE BILLS PUT BEFORE US. AND AS USUAL, I PROBABLY WILL FIND WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAS TO SAY TO BE PERSUASIVE BUT I WANT TO MAKE IT VERY CLEAR. IT IS NOT DISPOSITIVE FOR ME. IF THE PRESIDENT PUTS A BILL ON THE FLOOR THAT I THINK CURTAILS OR HURTS PEOPLE’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS WITHOUT SUBSTANTIAL ENHANCING PUBLIC SAFETY, HUH-UH, THAT’S A BRIDGE TOO FAR FOR ME. I’M GOING TO FIGHT FOR OUR CONSTITUTION.>>Sandra: ALL RIGHT. I WANT TO MOVE ON TO THE LATEST WITH THIS “NEW YORK TIMES” PIECE THAT WAS ULTIMATELY CHANGED OR THOSE FACTS THAT WERE OMITTED BY THE EDITORS ACCORDING TO THE PAPER WERE ADDED BACK IN. THIS IS FROM THE LATEST ROUND OF TV INTERVIEWS FROM THE AUTHORS OF THAT PIECE SAYING WHY THEY ULTIMATELY DID NOT MEET WITH KAVANAUGH HIMSELF.>>SEVERAL PEOPLE ASKED DID YOU SPEAK TO JUSTICE KAVANAUGH?>>WE WERE ON OUR WAY TO WASHINGTON TO SPEAK TO HIM. WE HAD FINALLY ARRANGED FOR AN INTERVIEW. ULTIMATELY WE COULD NOT AGREE ON TERMS THAT WE FELT COMFORTABLE WITH. HE WANTED US TO SAY WE HADN’T SPOKEN TO HIM.>>Sandra: WANT TO GET YOUR REACTION TO THAT, SENATOR.>>I DON’T MEAN ANY DISRESPECT, SANDRA, BUT I DON’T THINK OUR REPORTERS HERE HAVE MUCH CREDIBILITY LEFT. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED BUT IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE IT WAS EITHER BIAS OR JUST BAD JOURNALISM. NOW, SOME OF MY DEMOCRATIC FRIENDS AGAIN, NOT ALL OF THEM, THEY JUMPED ON THIS AND THEY WANT TO IMPEACH JUDGE KAVANAUGH. THEY WANT TO IMPEACH EVERYBODY AND PRESIDENT TRUMP AND JUSTICE KAVANAUGH. I THINK NEXT THEY’LL TRY TO IMPEACH SCREECH, THE BALD EAGLE MASCOT FROM THE WASHINGTON NATIONALS. PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE WITH THE RESULT OF THE DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM HERE ARE TRYING TO SMASH THE SYSTEM. AND I UNDERSTAND THEY ARE DISAPPOINTED THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT. IT’S CALLED DEMOCRACY. THEY WILL GET TO VOTE AGAIN IN A YEAR AND A HALF BUT IN THE MEANTIME THEY NEED TO FILL OUT A HURT FEELINGS REPORT AND LET US MOVE ON HERE AND TRY TO RUN GOVERNMENT.>>Sandra: ARE YOU SUGGESTING THERE SHOULD BE ANY FURTHER ACCOUNTABILITY BASED ON WHAT HAPPENED? I KNOW YOU ARE TAKING ON THE JOURNALIST, THE REPORTERS OR AUTHORS OF THAT PIECE. BUT THEY PLACE THE BLAME SQUARELY ON THE EDITORS FOR OMITTING THOSE KEY FACTS.>>LIKE I SAY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. I JUST THINK MOST AMERICANS, NOT THE CRANK WINGS BUT MOST AMERICANS ARE LOOKING AT THIS AND GOING WELL, IT WAS ONE OF TWO THINGS. EITHER BIAS OR IT WAS BAD JOURNALISM. EITHER WAY WE’RE GOING TO

  1. The only people they will disarm – if they can.
    Is law abiding citizens.
    And leave poor people in crime infested depressed area.
    Prey and cannon fodder for the criminal and the crazed.
    Who could give a flying fig about any law or bill.

  2. AR-15s are NOT designed for military use. They just look scary. The gun grabbers are only supporting the NWO agenda of disarming the public.

  3. The left has already won. Prove is that "something must be done" even if it is nothing. Why must "something be done about guns". Why isn't the question about what can be be to keep people from being senselessly violent. No gun control law should be passed unless there are excellent reasons to believe the proposed law will prevent crime. So far not a single gun control law ever passed in the U.S. has been effective at reducing crime.

  4. I HAVE THE RIGHT, FROM GOD, TO OWN GUNS TO PROTECT MYSELF AND FAMILY FROM CRIMINALS AND GOVERNMENT GONE BAD (DEMOCRATS, SOCIALISTS, COMMUNISTS for now). That's it. Period.

  5. Please don't mess with the 2nd amendment because it will mean Civil war like never seen before it is illegal to put any Restrictions on it What part of shal NOT Be infringed do you not understand… Ie :It means you can not change restrict or stop ones Right to own a gun as it was a right not given by any government it was a right given to people to protect ones family by GOD

  6. How ironic – The Democrats are not happy with a Democratic system.
    Face it . Americans can see Who they really are. and they are not Democrats in Congress who uphold the Oath they took to serve the best interests of this Nation for the People.

  7. Love is the answer?
    Like love your gun and love your neighbor's gun! ??.
    Explain good faith?
    Explain referring and using 2nd Amendment?

  8. Scientific evidence?
    Like background check's, medical report's, history of using gun's, record's of going to store's, verification of license and service of the equipment, record's of the ammunition serial numbering, house safe & securely zipped the gun, locked gun's, out of reach from children, media-video gaming psychological impact, residence-school's-college's-university ambience,…? Many commonsense question's and which prevents gun violence and that leads to gun violence.

  9. If they do any of these(unconstitutional) Gun Grabber laws! I'll be Done with Trump and All of the GOP……This will be the final nail in the coffin for me!!!!! and I will never support today's Democrats……

  10. Me too! Lol I love everybody, but just in case, I've got several of them. One of each color so that they match my dress and heels.

    Congress should understand that we don't care what they say. We will not comply with ANY sort of so called gun control. It'll be a fight. An ugly one.

  11. Absolutley, the right to defend , to bare arms, not to be infringed, hands off, were and always will be. Our unalienable rights are protected which the oath they take to uphold them, if their not than they are not qualified to run or occupy a a seat in any government or branch of it. Do not have the Countrys or its citizens best interest has no right to make a decision based upon his sole opinion.

  12. Senator John Kennedy is a true American patriot. All others could learn a lot from him. I am glad he is saying subverting the 2nd amendment is a bridge too far.

  13. More and more teachers and preachers are packing sidearms than ever before. It's practical insurance in case the "love thing" and "group hugging" doesn't work.

  14. Trump has already attacked at the 2nd Amendment before….Bump fire Stock ring a bell for you?
    Wonder if he'll do it again?

  15. I do not trust President Trump to faithfully uphold the 2nd Amendment, but we shall see what he proposes.
    Clearly, his re-election hangs in the balance, however.

  16. now understand, Beto categorizing the AR-15 with the AK-47 is a political ploy. The M-16 is military,, the AR-15 HAS NO AUTO selector.. it IS NOT an assault weapon. Please, someone, set these assholes straight.

  17. The progressive left is hypocritical about everything they preaching. They are divide this country by pitting one race against another, they create and thrive on chaos and emotional sensationalism to confuse people. Identity politics are their choice of weapons, they hate the constitution as it's written that provides all Americans our liberties and freedoms. They care about no one other than power and control they will stop on nothing on obtaining their control. I hope everyone is vigilant about what is going on, never allow theme to get control of this country.

  18. I don't care what Congress or the president says about guns or what new restrictions they have for the 2A. I will not give up my AR.

  19. What the heck are Republicans doing. DON'T VOTE ON ANY BILL unless it's immigration. That is the " line in the sand". No votes till proposals are heard , debated and voted to give border

  20. Any additional violations to the contract should be met with expulsion. The American people have done it before and will do it again. Message to the political class, "Reverse course now before it's too late."

  21. THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS NOT A SUGGESTION — IT'S A DIRECTIVE. In order to repeal the second amendment it takes 2/3 rds of the congress both the House of Reps. and the Senate. 3/4 ths of the states has to ratify it and the president has to sign off on it. THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS SAFE IT'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

  22. Landslide for Trump in 2020. These Communists live here? Why don't they leave this country if they hate it so much. Take California with them. We will keep our guns !!!!!!

  23. I agree with Senator John Kennedy's comments about the 2nd Amendment. I don't want the amendment curtailed at all. Thank you Senator for your staunch support of the 2nd Amendment. God bless you and your family.

  24. There is a third n most popular opinion
    Leave 2 admin the hell alone
    (((((((((((((SHALL NOT INFRINGE))))))))))))
    Take GUNS away from
    (((((((((((LIBERAL DEMOCRATS))))))))))))

  25. Beta doesn't have a coherent plan for the economy so he wants to take rights from law abiding citizens.
    Do we need an anti-American twerp for president .

  26. What's really going on with gun control?? This has got to be a smoke screen for something else much bigger buried in the hysteria of I'm going to take your guns… who's planning the big takeover??

  27. Putin implantation, the pig with no shame, the obnoxious spoiled brat that you idolize because you're dumb is going to croak in jail. ???

  28. They want to take our rights to control us! It's all about control. Guns keep us safe. Would you break into someone's house, if you knew they had a loaded gun ready to use it if need be? Not unless you are extremely stupid! Now how much crime do guns stop? That's a question and an issue we need to focus on.

  29. What would happen if we "REALLY SHUT DOWN: "MK ULTRA MIND CONTROL" and exposed to the public why the CIA has proceeded to covertly launch and sustain an offensive against the 2nd Amendment, bribe and control the narrative of MSM, and engage in black budget activities as if they were O.K..????

  30. Defend 2A. PERIOD, that’s where America stands.
    (To use the argument the left is so fond of) don’t be a sexist bigot that is trying to disarm all the women in my life while doing NOTHING about the real problems. Gang violence, and suicide are the lions share of gun deaths, by a large margin. Mental health and the media message need to be addressed for the indiscriminate shootings.

    People should stop calling us a democracy, we are a republic.

  31. The criminals are handed these weapons by our government. Wake up, Americans.
    Tyranny is in action.
    This is how its done.
    HAARP technogy is weather weaponry engineered to take down Americans, as it has taken down every soveirgn nation since Vietnam. Each of us holds our divine constitution, within us. Fight this tyranny or die.

  32. I watched a video that showed people in another country trying to defend themselves and their family with sticks and stone, we are blessed to have the 2nd Amendment ??❤?

  33. for all the dumb a$$es out there claiming the 2A only applies to one type of arms get off your computer the 1A did not say you could use it
