  • Anne-Marie Post author

    What's PLAN BEE if you don't VOTE" – FROM CANADA —is it TRUE that Trump went BANKRUPT 6 TIMES ????? AND YOU ALLOWED HIM IN OFFICE ?????? You should update your laws.

  • David J Post author

    If Ivanka "Dunning – Kruger" Trump is involved, then you automatically know the talks aren't serious.

  • razor8191 Post author

    The NRA would rather watch more people die than agree to rational gun laws.

  • xjaskix Post author

    Trump is Great but I Hope he doesnt Take away any Cool guns from us , Thank you & God Bless

  • Zinxeb Zinxeb Post author

    Gun control will fade out of the news very quickly whrn the economy tanks.

  • TokyoTraveller Post author

    Trump will NEVER turn on the NRA.
    These are stalling measures. Trump hopes we forget about this over time.
    We won't.

  • Beagle76 Post author

    It would have happened by now if they were serious, in Australia it was 1 day, nearly every politician supported it. There was a hand in scheme of handing in illegal weapons. Many more guns were handed in than expected. It was the only time I supported the then Prime Minister, Australians are culturally similar to,Americans I would suspect. I think that there would be huge support for gun control.

  • tesladrive1 Post author

    You can't take money, and not perform! Of course the NRA takes money from Russia and then gives it to Trump and Republican Congressmen! I cancelled my NRA membership! The NRA is run by Communists!

  • Will Naman Post author

    Let Trump take all the credit for gun control or you will hand the next election to him. Dems threatening a gun grab will bring out the Trump voters.

  • Private Private Post author

    The Wall, China, Russia, North Korea, EPA, Epstein, Mass Shootings, Dividing USA, now screw up Gun Control Laws. UPDATE, add the Economy

  • Anthus Post author

    Gun control doesn’t work, All that does Is restrict gun owners, As for drug dealers and criminals, they get their guns from the black market, And how the black market get their guns, they get it over sea, meaning Gun trafficking, they make guns for money, that is how they do it , then they send it here to the USA, in other words the Black market, and that is how the Drug dealers and criminals get the guns, so like I said gun control don’t work. All it does is make gun owners criminals, and if they keep pushing For more gun control, and violating the Second Amendment meaning the constitution, it could start a civil War, and that my friends is not good, not good at all,

  • Miles North Post author

    But-but-but the AR-15 is a big, bwack scawy boomstick.

  • chimpakawanzelu Post author

    of course not.

  • She's my President Post author

    MSNBCannibals want GUN CONTROL because a well arm4ed populace ruins MSNBCannibals' ability to cannibalize their victims

  • Miles North Post author

    Ds wouldn't stop at banning the so-called "assault weapon" AR-15s, etc. If stats happen to show a reduction in crime (which they wouldn't, by the way) they'd view that as a success, piggyback off that and use it as a reason to ban other guns. If stats show the opposite, they'd say that's b/c they have to ban the next weapon. "Militarized handguns" is a term the gun-grabbers now bandy about. So at some point the focus will be on handguns, maybe the Glock. It's incrementalism…the slow boil of the frog.

  • ihopetowin Post author

    Trump reports Beijing regime is “Massing Troops on the Border with Hong Kong”; he grovels in abject appeasement, calling the “Hong Kong Thing … a Very Tough Situation … I hope it works out for everybody, Including China”; This Greenlights the looming crackdown, making immediate impeachment mandatory.

  • Chinese American Post author

    Doing nothing is the GOP strongest Strategy since 2010 when they control the congress and senators.

  • Ash Roskell Post author

    People who BUY access to politicians, to influence policy: in ANY other country, that would be called, “Corruption,” right? What am I missing, here? Ban LOBBY GROUPS! Problem SOLVED, America . . .

  • Worrywart Post author

    The thumbnail is my favorite view of Trump. It's always great to see the back of him.

  • Miles North Post author

    If the people at MSNBC shopped around, they likely could find a psychiatrist offering a group rate. Maybe even start a carpool to the shrink's office…to save on expenses. Probably could order their SSRIs at bulk rate, dispensed in those 50 gal. drums.

  • Anthony Butler Post author

    No, of course not… They will just talk in up and then let the subject drop until the next shooting… Then, rinse repeat…

  • Fozzie Bear Post author

    Why should it happen now under this President who thinks teachers should have guns when it should have been happen decades ago? Let’s face it: Things are obvious. Peoples lifes in this country are not priority if it is about interests of the NRA.

  • Carl Kelly Post author

    If the decision on better gun control is left up to ivanka and donald trump, pheomelaninated people are truely in bigly trouble, huge trouble. It's so big😂

  • Big Norbert Post author

    Trumps speaks to lots of people but listens to no one. Ivanka is an unelected turd in a dress. Nothing of any consequence will happen because Trump and Moscow Mitch won't let it.

  • Ernie Taylor Post author

  • Mike Reseigh Post author

    Expect no action. Moscow Mitch will block everything. Trump is useless unless you need more lies and hate.

  • Jay Gibson Post author

    Carry your gun.
    Save some lives.

  • Eric Williams Post author

    People who support gun control deserve to be imprisoned without trial.

  • hankakah Post author

    They are trying to delay it by 2020 election…little do they realize it's too little too late.. They take so much money from the NRA and gun lobbyists, their pockets are full. And with the GOP in control of Congress for so many years, nothing has happened…their seats will filled by others, and hopefully all blue/green elected congressmen. So how do you change something that isn't working? You change the ones in charge, and that's the GOP. Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared were NOT elected by We the People…why should THEY make policies that affect us?

  • Richard Smith Post author

    So a criminal with a long record has a weapon or weapons although it is illegal for the criminal to have a firearm and James Kenney Mayor of Phila. claims that gun
    control will keep weapons out of the hands of criminals!! By this idiots logic no criminal should be able to get their hands on illegal
    narcotics, but there you are. Criminals will never be unarmed – there are many ways to acquire these weapons legal or not. The only ones who
    will be unarmed are law abiding citizens. Now let us look at prisons. Surly by Kenney's logic criminals in prison would not have access to
    weapons, but as we all know criminals can manufacture weapons in prison and have murdered many an inmate and corrections officer. Logic does not
    exist in the Democrat party.

  • kare more Post author

    Ivanka who?

  • Walt Schmidt Post author

    Gun owners will NOT comply anyway so….
