  1. Trump: "We're going to be very strong on doing nothing. I'm going to be tremendously strong on doing nothing. I've spoken to Mitch McConnell, and he is fully on board with doing nothing as well. So we are both on the same page when it comes to doing nothing. I've done more on doing nothing than any president in history."

  2. I can tell you what it took me to get a FOID card in Illinois: extensive background check by the Illinois State Police (which took nearly 60 days), a photo that matched my drivers license, an exact address match, and a $10 fee. I must present that card everytime I want to buy ammunition, and anytime I want to buy a gun from an FFL dealer I must have a valid FOID, pass another background check, and wait through the mandatory waiting period. So its a blatant lie that Firearms are easy to buy here and in most other parts of the country. Try enforcing the multitude of laws we already have.

  3. It takes NOTHING if you go to a gun show. Just pay in cash and walk out with an AK17 and 10,000 rounds of ammo in just minutes.

  4. All the FFL businesses should be pushing their elected officials to pass legislation requiring universal NICS on all transfers. Why? Cause it means more business and money for them, and we increase our nation's safety. Win win win.

  5. THE REPUBLICANS WON'T BE HAPPY UNTIL WE'RE HAVING SHOOT OUTS IN THE STREETS & SOME OF THEIR KID'S ARE KILLED AT THE MALL OR A STORE OR AT THE MOVIES ETC.ETC. SINCE THEY THINK THEY'RE IMMUNE TO WHAT THE REST OF US HAVE TO GO THROUGH IN LIFE BECAUSE THEY'RE PART OF THE ELITE!!💯😈😈🆗🇺🇸✌😎

  6. So whats the big deal -?? Make unlicensed gun sales (without full background checks ) = AGAINST THE LAW & punishable by real prison time.

  7. Moscow Mitch and Trump will not do anything.. They have done this same BS after every mass shootings.. They just caught another person in California with massive weapons planning a mass shooting!!

  8. I have been to America eight time once taken to a gun show I was told no check was required to have a gun in protecting myself,if I paid cash at the gun show in Florida,and I'm not an American,even though I was not living in America,I did not purchase a gun but found it crazy in offering me one,

  9. I could buy a gun without a background check in under 3 days if I wanted to.
    It takes me a month to get a Driver's License.
    🤔

  10. USA = fake democracy.
    90% of the population support background checks and still your (bought) politicians just ignore you.
    Wake up USA! End the gerrymander and take corporate and interest group money out of politics.

  11. BS vendors at gun shows are required by law to run back ground checks because they are operating as a businesses, lots of people have been arrested for large amounts of guns at gun shows without a FFL. Next most internet retailers require you to ship the gun to a FFL to than pay $24 Dollar processing fee too purchase a gun. The only exception is Armslist and you have to physically meet the buyer other wise you will have too go through an FFL and even then the seller is criminally liable if he sells to a prohibited person. Other wise there is a very rare case like C and R guns which can be bought online without a back ground check provided the individual obtains a curio and relic license which is a long process and lots of ATF paper work and back ground checks.

  12. Stop lying to your viewers. If you buy from an FFL at a gun show, there will be a background check. If you order online it gets sent to an FFL where you will do a background check.

  13. look at all the shootings in shithole country USA so far today.

  14. Background checks (Particularly for private sales) violate the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments, and the presumption of innocence guaranteed in the common law!

  15. 4:33 Red Flag "laws” violate the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 14th Amendments. And have already resulted in 1 murder by false police report!

  16. O.K……we have a system in place called the DMV, for vehicles. we could easily create a parallel system for ownership of fire arms. along with the total ban on ownership of military arms, I think this is the way to go.

  17. I think we should let out of prison all those people who murdered someone with a gun because they didn't murder that person the gun did who is with me?

  18. the congressman ride around in gas guzzling limos and are safe with heavily armed secret service and make millions while in office but we can trust them:D

  19. "Unlicensed sales"=private sale, "universal background checks "= gun registry, "red flag laws"= guilty until proven innocent, "gun show loophole"= private sale, "boyfriend loophole "= doesn't exist, "assault weapon "= all semi automatics including pistols

  20. Private party gun sells is free trade and is a beautiful part of us being a free nation of free men. Fact: all the recent mass shooters had back ground checks and bought guns legally.. Stopping private sales will not change the crime rate and will only make normal men into bad men.. I've bought many guns privately as has everyone I know, we are not bad men!!

  21. we have a system in place called the DMV, for vehicles. we could easily
    create a parallel system for ownership of fire arms. along with the
    total ban on ownership of military arms, I think this is the way to go. no, not funny. that kind of system has been discussed more than several
    time in congress. if you can track the object, you can track the owner
    and their actions with said object. its not a new idea and violates
    nothing in the constitution. and as for military styl weapons….ya, a
    total ban on civilian ownership is the way to go and has also been
    discussed in congress/senate.
