    You think criminals are going to give up guns? No they’ll still get it one way or another. They should target mental health. Especially in schools! That’ll stop those school shooting. C’mon people! These shootings are more mental health! Start with that!

    You’re not taking our guns because we have the right to keep and bear arms!
    It is not weapons of war. AR15 is NOT a assault rifle or assault weapon.

    Ok let me see if I get this.
    We have laws for drinking and driving.
    Laws for drugs. Laws against speeding. We still have people killed in DUIs drug trafficking possession and overdose. So more laws against law abiding is going to STOP NONLAW ABIDING PEOPLE. KAWS DIDN'T STOP BOTO FROM A DUI OR BURGLARY

    These laws they want to pass don't happen because the polls they take are wrong...90% of Democrats want these laws to pass not republicans or gun owners, they need to ask gun owners and police/military how to help violence in America

    When "guns" are mentioned, the word safety is NOT in the second amendment. However, the words "being necessary to the security of a free state", and "shall not be infringed", are. The second amendment is NOT about being safe. It's about having liberties and being free. Freedom ain't free. Our founders knew the dangers of having an armed society. The weight of tyranny was heavier than the threat of (so called) gun violence. They knew this, and debated it fiercely. At the end of the day, Madison crafted one sentence that was accepted as our second amendment, to protect this country from tyranny and oppression .

    "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed" -- second amendment --

    The word "safety" ain't in there. Fighting tyranny is not a safe activity, but necessary to preserve freedoms and liberties. Ask any dead veteran, or any vet for that matter.

    Can you see the Irony: Limited Time Offer July 4th, 2020?

    I would suggest for your viewing pleasure the following ONE TIME ONLY offer.

    Pick among you, have a LOTTERY if you like and the LUCKY 10 winners drawn from the USA National POOL of GUN owners can come to the Statue of Liberty on the Fourth of July 2020 and Execute me. I will gladly provide this vain life to you for your ultimate expression of your total barbaric ugliness. You can strip me, flog me mercilessly and nail me to a wooden CROSS 3 stories high. And televise it and broadcast it live on the INTERNET for the ENTIRE PLANET to enjoy.

    And when it is over, I will be the only one free. You can have this life and this world you beasts. Your deserve the war that is coming for you all. I would rather be dead than reap the vengeance you will have sown. I pity you all.

    I still see her dying there in that street. And I see you all dying now in the streets all over this world. I would ask your murders to stop, but they can't. It's in our nature to destroy ourselves.

    How is passing new laws going to prevent people from being killed? Oh and by the way we already have go to go through a backround check and have to have a permit to purchase a gun. Oh and I almost forgot we dont have a gun problem we have a society problem.

    They will NEVER take our guns. Criminals will get guns wherever they need too. We have the right to have firearms. Most murders are not with firearms. More murders are STOPPED due to citizens with firearms. There are already background checks to get a gun. You have to wait a week when you buy guns. It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun.

    These people are so stupid. Beto..... never will Americans give up
    Their guns. If that ever happened do you know how fast other countries would
    Try and invade. That’s one of the reasons other countries won’t even think of it. Because they know the American people are ready for war at all times. Well maybe not all Americans. (Liberals) ( ANTIFA) ( feminist) (SJW) etc.........

    Beto is actually the dumbest person. He is going to take our Ak-47’s and ar 15’s. That will never happen. I don’t trust the government with anything. Ar 15 does not stand for assault rifle. Taking guns won’t solve this it will only make illegals guns even more lucrative

    This is why @youtube needs to disable comments so everyone can think for themselves. Again and again do you actually believe that we will let Donald Trump be president again. Liberals and democrats were Republic before. And us liberals don't have to fake being tough or act intimidating. We will fight till we die for our pursuit of happiness.

    What these people fail to realize is banning a weapon doesn't keep it off the streets. It keeps it out of the legal gun owners possession to defend themselves. The system has failed to keep drugs, weapons, and violence out of PRISONS. What makes them so confident they can get it done on a National level???

    Honestly doesn't matter who wins. Our gun rights are gonna alter regardless. People don't seem to realize that both parties are two sides of the same coin. If it does happen, the thing I hope for at least is universal background checks because that's the least of my issues but even that isn't going to stop gun violence anyhow. Banning guns won't do shit for the fact that over 16 to 20 million AR-15 rifles are own across American households and don't get me started on weapons registry which will fail horribly by the first year or two because look how California is doing with that. And if you don't want that example look at Canada with a population that's larger than there are guns in their country which failed badly and lost millions of dollars because of it.
