    So the extremist Islamists can have illegal guns to terrorise us just like the cartels can terrorise the Latino community?

  • Ellen Salomonsen Post author

    So dangerous when politics is totally out of sync with common sense

  • Freddie Kruger Post author

    Nothing wrong with stricter gun policy. Too many idiots with guns out in society. The only ones who benefit are the ones selling the guns. Republicans will probably strike it down since they are owned by NRA

  • Doug E Post author

    Th..Th..They's comin for muh guns!!
    Ah kin hear em outside!

  • Akela DeWolf Post author

    You know what has killed more American children, than the guns in Viet Nam, both gulf Wars, afghanistan, and every murder in the US since it was founded?

    MSNBCannibals want to take the guns so they can EAT YOUR CHILDREN without you being able to defend them! #StopMSNBCannibalism #BuyaGUN

  • Iridescent ink Post author

    Thomas Jefferson was right. The constitution should have been updated consecutively every 20 years. The second amendment goes with 18th century thinking. It's archaic.

  • bellamoon Post author

    Trump isn't encroaching on the responsibilities of Congress. He is usurping the POWERS of Congress. Please be accurate.

  • Trumpocalypse Post author

    Background checks don't limit the 2nd Amendment, at all. Only a fool thinks that everyone and anyone should have unrestricted access to firearms.

  • Bucky Pinata Post author

    Gun legislation did not get passed. when did that happen? I saw that Rights suppression bills did, however…..

  • Grim Reefer Post author

    I love guns (hand guns), however there is no reason for a civilian to ever own an assault weapon such as an AR15. The "right to bear arms" was when they only had the musket. A flick loader, single ball projectile rifle. If these nationalist want their rifles, let them purchase a flint loader!

  • Jay Gibson Post author

    During the mid terms they promised you universal health care, this is what they meant.
    It is DOA, but it dont matter, they are in office now.

  • Gooey 911 Post author

    And while MSNBC was busy covering the fake hate crime of Jussie Smollett to fan the flames of racial division against the US President, 70 more people got shot in Chicago in a gun-free city. Too bad the police were busy trying to solve a fake crime perpetrated by the democrat race-baiters. Why don't criminals respect these strict gun restrictions democrats force on the citizens? It's almost like the democrats put illegals/criminals first over the citizens that elected them.

  • Dave Schultz Post author

    Ha ha.. Those bills are as dead as Vince Foster.

  • Richard Culley Post author

    Until the unfathomable 2nd amendment is removed the only way to save lives is to make it harder to purchase, own and use guns. To my eyes what the House has passed is barely anything and yet, Senate Republicans are so base they won't vote for it. Yet more evidence, if it were needed, that the Republicans put power above everything.

  • timber_beast Post author

    LETS BE HONEST – the GOP LOVES school massacres.
    The gun money flows in like Christmas! (except there are a bunch of slaughtered children who aren't voters.)

  • libsrtraitors Post author

    Liberals try to take our rights while giving rights to illegal invaders

  • Terri Kukla Post author

    Makes no difference unless its passed.

  • V Post author

    Nothing will change. I've carried legally for decades to protect myself from right wing idiots. Any trumpturd threatening me gets its head blown off and I'll smile while doing it.

  • Thomas L Post author

    Unfortunately this will be blocked by the republican traitors in the Senate, but now this legistration is out and it WILL be passed in 2021 ! as Democrats will have the House, the Senate and the White House in 2021!

  • jerry henrie Post author

    The globalist commy DNC knows it cant bring down the hammer of communism, where it kills millions of white race people until it gets the guns away from us. The constitution and God almighty gives us the right to bare arms, and it doesn't matter what you communist baby killing scum hypocrites have to say about it, by the way, there is only TWO GENDERS you sexual deviants.

  • Shawn Corbin Post author

    The legislation will get shot down in the Senate, which is a good thing.

    Well done Democrats!

  • MVVpro Post author

    So it appears that 5 parents are shot by their offspring every week. Talk about guns being necessary for protection.

  • ruth depew Post author

    Now I want a gun license just like a car license that includes a knowledge test and a skills test. Without the license, you do not have the authority to touch a gun outside of a licensed gun training facility.

  • paulbsmokin Post author

    Won't pass the Senate. Meanwhile I'm on my way to the gun and knife show.

  • Kevin Heintz Post author

    I’m just here for Stephanie’s voice.

  • Mario Stinger Post author

    It is the Americans fault for electing Republicans in the Senate and t he house for decades.

  • Radwulf Eboraci Post author

    Apparently, doing nothing doesn't work.

  • Verruca Post author

    According to Hollywood, all I have to do is wander through NYC checking the trash bins.

  • O. B. Post author

    (1:00) Did Stephanie say "Trumpublicans"? 😂 I love that woman. 👍

  • ابو حيدر آل شاهين Post author

    You only hurting the law abiding citizens. criminals don't purchase a firearm legally from the gun store you morons!! Do you think your background check will detect the criminal intention?? It's one more step back words you sick idiots.

  • 000i 0006 Post author

    It took more than 100,000 deaths before americans react…WOW..really alert guys, the kind to react to a fire when the house is in ashes

  • KING TRUMP Post author

    You should just make laws outlawing murder or other violence. Oh. Wait!

  • timber_beast Post author

    Australia did a CRAZY thing and enacted intelligent gun regulations. Now gun deaths have nearly disappeared.
    But we Americans need to be armed and ready so we can shoot at our imagined enemies that we see on television shows, FOX news stories and action movies.
    Too bad about all our dead school kids – but ITS WORTH IT! MAGA!!!!

  • Alex Hamilton Post author

    This is a historic week. Never has a bill been passed in the House by one party with the other party holding the Senate and never allowing it to be voted on. LOL, Evidently they slept thru the Obama administration 2011 to 2016. 😀 It happened all the time 😀 Ask Harry Reid, he knows 😀

  • James Persinger Post author

    It's nice to see Congress function as it should constitutionally. Pass laws, checks and balances, power of the purse, etc. Refreshing change of pace from the most recent past.

  • Cocoa Liveson Post author

    Democratic house, things start getting done. Oust Mitch and we'd have real progress.

  • Slick Rock Post author

    MSNBC = REAL RACISM

    Where is our buddy David Hogg?

  • altitude illume Post author

    #WELLREGULATEDMILITIAweapons A GUN IS A SERIOUS RESPONSIBILITY, FOR ALL. proper gun parents insist guns be in expert hands, and THEY TEACH THAT, BUT, MOSTLY, ANALYSE LITTLE JUNIOR'S MENTAL STABILITY; MOM & DAD, YOU MUST KNOW IT.

  • This That Post author

    The bought and paid for GOP will do what they have been paid to do and strike it down. The only chance for change on any gun legislation is to VOTE THEM OUT.

  • Terror Cast Post author

    What gun show loophole? Ever single gun show i go to and purchase a gun or rifle there is a background check. You dont just pay and take it home.

  • uhohhhsteven Post author

    If this fake Trump national security crisis isn’t struck down, expect a Democrat gun violence national security within the next decade.

  • bob jenkins Post author

    Dems are gonna have a heart attack now that the GOP wants to add to it that ICE gets notified when an illegal immigrant buys a gun

  • Nathan Montgomery Post author

    This is ironic that this happens while less than a day ago, a man opened fire in NY where there are strict gun laws.

  • Jason R Post author

    Death by a thousand cuts!
    This is just another attempted cut with the ultimate goal of eventually disarming the the American people!
    This will die in the senate as it should.

  • Dude Post author

    Next it will die in the Senate

  • Jack Makackov Post author

    You get a background check to get a minimum wage job. Maybe it's a good idea too do it for guns too??????

  • House Majority Post author

    NRA
    Not real americans.

  • patriot 1776 nemesis Post author

    PROPAGANDIST REPORTING

  • Richie Rich Post author

    The problem is really quite simple, the 1% pigs have bought these politicians. Now, through citizens united, the 1% own and control your nation. Now bow down and take your mark, so we can finally end the reign of the filth of man. The only true question is, who's mark are you going to take?

  • KING TRUMP Post author

    HAHAHA…DOA in senate.
    The dems refused to include ICE notification for illegals trying to buy a gun.
    So I guess the communists care more about illegals than safety and rule of law.

  • ChucksterOLove Post author

    What's next? More of the same… 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • Jeff Hagerman Post author

    Will it effect illegals getting guns ?

  • gibbs ncis Post author

    I have a question for pro gun people. No disrespect intended. But I wonder how many pro gun folks were furious at NFL players, taking a knee during the National Anthem. In Peaceful protest agenst getting killed by the same government that people say the 2nd amendment says they have a right to have guns to protect themselves from? See the irony?

  • GamingTV Post author

    what's next? what else, take out the NRA, so we can have an assault weapons ban, they can either fold, or we bankrupt them

  • GalaxyStranger01 Post author

    The argument against background checks – is that we already HAVE background checks – at the store, gun shows AND online. THAT is why these laws don't change anything.

  • Oscar Cali Post author

    Those Inbreds with a mental illness are grabbing there guns hoping they don't find out there incompetent of owning one… I've met a few of them while surveying land in the mountains….😂💯🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • Eric Tang Post author

    Hm? I don't understand. Weren't there always background checks on commercial gun sales (including gun shows and online as it states in the beginning of the vid?) Why does it say "new gun control bills"? Am I missing something…???

  • ronin one Post author

    Millions killed by cars, ban cars.

  • Junior Harry Post author

    Hi Steph🐞.👋.
    Exceptional reporting, Steph.👍👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏.
    Keep on digging, Steph.👍.
    👉👉Patience democrats, patience.👍.

  • Bob W Post author

    Doesn't matter if 100% of Americans approve of it. As long as politicians are bought and paid for by the NRA and weapons manufacturers, it won't pass. The first step is passing an amendment to make bribery illegal again. Or vote out anybody who takes money from large donors. Only then will you see a significant change on this issue.

  • rockerdude8000 Post author

    It will die in the senate because it's virtue signaling by people who know nothing about guns. Even if by some miracle it passed senate, trump will veto it. because he knows if he signs, it he's guaranteed to be s one term president.

  • Jane Nonymous Post author

    lol historic. They never go anywhere just like all minority bills.

  • James Vincent Franco Post author

    It dies in the Senate. Buy you do it again and The left has to play Harder Ball. Instead of walking the middle path and being Measured every even semi- liberal entity Tuns Day and night ads Showing Butina at the NRA Shows the boyfriend indicted pictures of her in Prison there outing to Russia. You have to snash their whole front to pieces

  • James Vincent Franco Post author

    This is one of the last chances they are broken. Look at the add they ran. You could take that and Have an Add showing the Old lady diving on the Dude before he got another Clip saying. An old lady wont be around all the time the best defense against a mass murder is an old lady with more balls than the NRA. Ad- NRA in brd with Russia literally…

  • DMG2FUN Post author

    How do you argue against background checks? Simple they do not work. And three days is not an instant check.

  • Sage Bias Post author

    There already are background checks. What are you talking about.

  • Mike Varga Post author
