I WANT TO THROW THE FIRST OPEN QUESTION TO NOT MOVE THIS IN ANY DIRECTION U WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU HEAR WE REPORTED A COUPLE MOMENTS AGO THAT BEYOND THE GUN CONTROL DEBATE THAT THE TRAINED POLICE OFFICERS WHO COULD HAVE HELPED DID NOT HELP?>>WELL, I WILL TAKE CHARGE OF THAT BEING FORMER LAW ENFORCEMENT. IT IS VERY DISHEARTENING THAT YOU HAVE INDIVIDUALS THAT WERE TRAINED FOR THESE TYPES OF SITUATIONS THAT DID NOTHING THAT LED TO THE DEATHS OF 17 YOUNG KIDS. IT’S VERY TROUBLING. HEART BREAKING. ED: KILLER SHAH, YOU ARE PROGUN KIOGUN KISHUN KISHA, THIS STARTEDPROGUN CONTRL KISHA, THIS STARTEDPROGUN CONTR. I’M NOT SAYING THAT’S GONE AWAY. AS WE HAVE GOTTEN MORE FACTS, PEOPLE TRAINED WITH GUNS WEREN’T JUMPING IN. WHERE ARE YOU A WEEK LATER AND HOW WE MOVE FORWARD?>>I STILL BELIEVE WE NEED MORE GUN CONTROL LAWS. THE ISSUE WITH THAT IS THAT OUR PLIFERLS ARE NOT TRAINED TO DEAL WITH MASS SHOOTINGS THAT HAVE BEEN HAPPENING. OUR COUNTRY HAS NOT BEEN PREPARED FOR IT AT ALL. THAT’S WHY I BELIEVE THERE IS A NEED FOR MORE LAW ENFORCEMENT. THERE IS A NEED FOR RESTRICTING INDIVIDUALS FROM OWNING SEMI ASSAULT RIFLES AND WEAPONS THAT SHOULD ONLY BE USED IN COMBAT. I THINK THAT’S THE MAJOR ISSUE. ED: I FEEL I COULD BRING NEW HERE IN TERMS OF DEALING WITH SCHOOLS AND THE PRESIDENT HAD LISTENING SESSION THIS WEEK AND OUR KIDS WHICH ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART FROM A PUBLIC HEALTH STRATEGY STANDPOINT, WHAT SHOULD WOULD HE BE DOING?>>LET ME FOLLOW UP AND SAY IN TERMS OF THIS MAN WHO DIDN’T ENTER THE BUILDING. THIS WAS A FAILURE OF EPIC PROPORTIONS AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT FROM THE 39 REPORTS ABOUT THIS YOUNG MAN TO THE CALLS TO THE FBI THAT WEREN’T FOLLOWED UP ON, TO THIS OFFICER STANDING OUT FOR FOUR MINUTES WHILE PEOPLE WERE BEING SLAUGHTERED INSIDE. THIS WAS A FAILURE OF EPIC PROPORTIONS ON ALL LEVELS OF THE GOVERNMENT. AND IN TERMS OF A PUBLIC HEALTH APPROACH, WHICH IS WHAT I ADVOCATE, THE LIBERAL ARGUMENT THAT WE NEED TO DEAL WITH GUN CONTROL HAS FAILED DRAMATICALLY. WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS TALK ABOUT THIS AS A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS U THE SAME WAY WE DID WHEN AUTOMOBILES CAME OUT AND WE HAD TO DEAL WITH SAFETY ISSUES THERE. AND WHEN YOU DO THAT, YOU CAN GET TO THE POINT THAT KISHA IS TALKING ABOUT IN TERMS OF MAKING SOLID MOVES IN TERMS YOU HAVE PUBLIC POLICY PERSPECTIVE.

I AS A PROVIDER IN NEW YORK CITY IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND CHILD PSYCHOLOGIST WHO TAKES INSURANCE. TO GET A PSYCHIATRIST YOU HAVE TO BE HOSPITALIZED. IT HAS TO COME TO THAT POINT. WE NEED REIMBURSEMENT FOR MENTAL HEALTH. WE NEED TO LIMIT THE ACCESS OF THESE KIDS, KIDS DO NOT NEED TO GET ASSAULT RIFLES. EVERY STUDY HAS SHOWN IN OTHER COUNTRIES THAT YOU LIMIT THE ACCESS TO ASSAULT RIFLES AND THESE MASS SHOOTINGS DO NOT HAPPEN. ED: KEVIN, CAN YOU JUMP IN.>>THERE ISSUE WE ARE HAVING FIND A CENTRAL FOCUS OVER MAKING THE BOOGIE MAN. IT WASN’T THE NRA’S FAULT THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE DIDN’T ACT ON NUMEROUS THREATS. THEY WERE ALERTED TO A FACT THAT HE MADE AN INSTAGRAM POST WITH GUNS AND SAYING HE WANTED TO SHOOT UP THE SCHOOL. MY ISSUE IS, IF YOU DON’T HAVE LAWS ON THE BOOKS THAT CAN CUT HIM UNDER ARREST OR TO CON IF TO CONFIF TO CONFISCATE HIS GUNS BECAUSE OF THAT AND PEOPLE CAN’T YELL FIRE IN A CROWDED THEATER. THAT’S AN ISSUE WE ARE HAVING HERE. ED: I SEE VINCENT NODDING HIS HEAD AND I WANT TO GET YOU IN HERE. YOU STARTED THE CONVERSATION. BUT I ALSO WANT TO POINT OUT EVEN PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID THIS WEEK THOUGH REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE DEPUTIES, REGARDLESS OF MISTAKES MADE, THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME SENSIBLE GUN MEASURES HERE. OF THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF IS TALKING ABOUT THAT. HOW DOES THAT FIT IN.>>I AGREE. HE SHOULDN’T BE ABLE TO PURCHASE A GUN AT 18. WHEN I WAS A POLICE OFFICER I HAD TO BE 21 BEFORE I COULD GET CERTIFIED WITH A WEAPON. ED: ROB O’NEILL REAL QUICK. FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR SHOT USAMA BIN LADEN TWEETED YOU SHOULD BE 21 TO VOTE AND 21 TO PURCHASE A GUN IN AMERICA. HOW MANY HANDS THINK THAT’S A GOOD IDEA? WE FOUND SOME AGREEMENT. SO MAKE YOUR POINT.>>MY POINT IS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE NRA. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ASSAULT RIFLES. IF YOU THINK ABOUT DYLAN ROOF HE DIDN’T HAVE ASSAULT RIFLE HE HAD GLOCK WHICH I CARRY. START TALKING ABOUT ASSAULT RIFLES AND THAT IT’S NOT GOING TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. BECAUSE YOU WILL STILL HAVE MASS SHOOTINGS. WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT HOW DO WE REACT TO THOSE A LOT FASTER. ED: QUICK LAST POINT?>>LAST POINT, IF YOU MAKE A THREAT THAT YOU’RE GOING TO DO AN ATTACK IN A GUN-FREE SCHOOL ZONE OR GUN-FREE ZONE. THERE SHOULD BE LAWS ON THE BOOKS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.>>THIS CHILD WAS REPORTED MULTIPLE TIMES. HE WASN’T ALLOWED TO CARRY A BACKPACK TO SCHOOL. ONLY ALLOWED TO YOU CARRY A CLEAR BAG BECAUSE THEY WERE SO AFRAID OF HIM. THE SYSTEM FAILED ALL THE STUDENTS. ED: I FEEL LIKE WE HEARD FROM EVERYONE. HEAR MORE AT 9:00 A.M. EASTERN. WHAT DID WE MISS IN THIS DEBATE AND I WANT EVERYONE ONE LAST AFTER POINTS WERE MADE. HOW MANY HANDS BELIEVE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS WILL DO SOMETHING TO MOVE THE COUNTRY FORWARD IN THIS? HOW MANY ARE CONFIDENT? GIVE ME YOUR HAND IF YOU THINK YOU ARE CONFIDENT? ZERO HANDS. THAT’S SOMETHING WE HAVE GOT TO DEAL WITH WE ARE GOING TO

  1. Unions once served a purpose to the american worker.. no longer.. they have become monstrous.
    Yep.. like the 2nd amendment.
    The spirit of the law was to allow state militias to arm themselves with muskets.. MUSKETS!
    Our founders did not bank on 30round AR15 assault rifles in every closet in a nation plagued with mental illness & straight up evilness

  2. Donald Trump has betrayed American citizens by calling for more gun control. I don't care who or what he is. I'm not vote for TRUMP again

  3. PLEASE stop calling them ASSAULT RIFLES!!! A "semi" automatic rifle is NOT an assault rifle, it is a RIFLE. A FULLY automatic weapons is STILL not an assault rifle. An assault rifle comes from the leader of the Third Reich, the Nazis, when he viewed a weapon he had not authorised, he called it the "Sturmgewehr" 44, which means "storm gun" or translated into common English, "Assault Rifle". This weapon was the first of its kind, a FULLY automatic & semi automatic, selective fire weapon that fired a large calibre rifle round, 7.92 × 33 mm, which is larger than the 7.62 of the Russian AK47.

    Common citizens are NOT permitted to have "assault rifles" but mostly own the M16 receiver variant called the AR15 which does NOT stand for assault rifle 15, as idiots claim, but stands for the company that produces it and the type, which is "Armalite Rifle". Also the vast majority of gun owners who own what is commonly called an "assault rifle" is a smaller calibre, a 22lr, which is a tiny round, usually used for varmint hunting, such as rabbits, possums and squirrel. Also used for practice and fun, called "plinking" due to the sound the round makes hitting small targets and tin cans.

  4. Fewer guns, less chance of violence. It’s simple. We have to get rid of the guns, and get rid of the people who own them too, if need be.

  5. Mental health is part of the problem—people who want guns are fucking nuts. Outlaw the nra, ban guns and impeach trumpet. And as far as the cost of all that? Mexico will pay, right trumpanzees?

  6. What should we do with people who drive dangerously? Just let everybody drive dangerously and, voila! Everyone will be safe. And the cost? Mexico will pay!

  7. When every politician refuses secret service protection , when every celebrity fires their armed bodyguards , and they move out of their guarded and gated communitys , and they along with everyone else advocating for removing or restricting the 2nd amendment place signs on every side of their property , in plain sight , stating this is a gun free zone , we can talk , until then STFU.

  8. This is stupid. I wonder how many 18 year olds are buried in Arlington National Cemetery??. They weren't to young to defend America.
    18 use to be a good age for doing most anything, now people want to change that and say you must be 21 years old to do anything. Do these people feel you must be 21 before going to the restroom by yourself??. Or even 21 before going to jail for committing a crime??. Maybe a person should be 21 in order to have a job or go to college, because if their only 18 then their not mature enough to be responsible are they??
    Because of this cry for a ban on the AR-15 that gun has become very popular and in high demand
    If you really want to kill people a gun isn't necessary. Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people without firing a single shot

  9. The 2 best answers I was waiting for was the lady Dr. 2:45 minutes About Mental Health & the dude at the 3:25 minutes the NRA has nothing to do with this. As a proud Navy Veteran served 5 YRS I support the NRA 💯% 😎 🇺🇸👍🏽!!!!!!!!

  10. If the technology exist where we can monitor our front door through our phones, wouldn't monitoring a camera at.the schools be just as important. The loss of life and cost to all is worth it.

  11. Please read and watch the videos regardless of your current opinion. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/11/6/16612014/sutherland-springs-shooting-good-guy-gun

  12. Gun dealers should be prosecuted just like drug dealers. Guns kill not people. If selling cocaine, heroine is a crime then selling any kind of firearms should also be a crime. I don't understand how in the world should there even be a debate over such thing. I'm also sure the founding fathers never meant for Americans to own assault rifles, semi automatic, machine guns when they wrote the constitution. The guns on the market today, are war arsenals, not hunting riffles. This so disgusting, what are you stupid people at the NRA thinking? No more gun shops, and I promise shootings will go down

  13. No such thing as an "assault rifle", its made up term that the ATF cant even define! Until ppl start knowing what theyre talking abt Im not open to hearing what they have to say.

  14. Do you know the State of Mexico can sue your ass for all the violence in Mexico? You talking bout building the wall, but your guns and ammunitions are being sent to Mexico, by American gun dealers so Mexican cartels can kill law abiding Mexican citizens. Being a neighbor to Mexico is as bad to Mexico than working migrants crossing the border.

  15. I'm shocked that none of these so called "Experts" in their field have been paying attention to what Trump has suggested as a solution and promised to do about this issue. WTF is the matter with these folks??

  16. Woman dies after stabbing at Winchester Public Library

    Two people were stabbed at the Winchester Public Library on Saturday morning, and a man was arrested.

    Two people were stabbed at the Winchester Public Library on Saturday morning, and a man was arrested.
    By Evan Allen and Laura Crimaldi GLOBE STAFF FEBRUARY 24, 2018
    WINCHESTER — On the narrow street where Jeffrey Yao lived, residents said they lived in fear.

    Once a quiet youngster, the 23-year-old Yao had transformed into a terror, they said, trying to break into homes, smashing glass in the road, shattering his own windows, and making threatening gestures at passersby. Terrified neighbors said they had reported Yao to authorities.

    On Saturday morning, the violence that Yao’s neighbors feared allegedly erupted in the reading room of the Winchester Public Library.

    Yao strode into the granite building with a 10-inch hunting knife, walked up behind a young woman who was reading at a table, and stabbed her to death, according to Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan.

    The 22-year-old woman, who was not identified, fled into the library’s main lobby, but didn’t survive the slash and stab wounds to her head and upper torso, said Ryan, who spoke at a news conference at the Winchester police station.

    At least two patrons rushed to her aid, including a 77-year-old man who was stabbed in the arm during the confrontation, while others corralled Yao until police arrived, she said. The wounded man is expected to recover.

    Hours after the deadly attack, Yao’s Farrow Street neighbors stood in groups, trying to process the tragedy they said they had all seen coming.

    “We knew something would happen,” said Leslie Luongo, who lives nearby. “We didn’t know when.”

    Some Winchester residents said the attack had an echo of the Florida school shooting in which a teenager who was well known to authorities allegedly killed 17 people.

    “It’s very unsettling especially with everything else that’s going on,” said Irina Puscasu, a Winchester resident who was headed to the library when she saw an ambulance make a U-turn in front of the main entrance. A police officer was turning people away at the door.

    “It’s a place we take our families. I would never have thought of not feeling safe in a library,” she said. “The library is such a peaceful place.”

    Russ Ganz said he was walking past the library at about 11 a.m., and saw police cars and a woman, who appeared to have injuries to her shoulder, being taken out on a stretcher. She was upright and conscious, he said.

    “I thought somebody fell down the stairs,” he said.

    Yao is being held without bail pending his arraignment, scheduled for Monday in Woburn District Court, where he will face charges of murder and assault with attempt to murder, Ryan said. She said Yao was known to police but didn’t provide details.

    Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said the suspect, Jeffrey Yao, was known to police but didn’t provide details.

    Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said the suspect, Jeffrey Yao, was known to police but didn’t provide details.
    Luongo said she was so afraid of Yao that she would run to her car every day when she left the house at 5 a.m. to go to work. She said residents kept their children indoors, kept baseball bats nearby, and locked their doors.

    One neighbor, who spoke on condition of anonymity to protect his family’s privacy, said that late last summer, he and his wife had awoken to hear Yao slamming against their front door.

    Before he even looked outside, the neighbor said, he knew it was Yao. The young man had gone from making an obscene gesture at his pregnant wife as she walked down the street a few years earlier to hurling an Adirondack chair at another neighbor’s door, he said. The police were summoned, and Yao was arrested.

    A few months later, he said, a court official called him about the case. The neighbor said he told the official then that Yao was a danger, saying: “He is going to kill somebody.”

    “We warned them,” the neighbor said. “We warned them — I can’t believe this. The only one that’s going to protect you in this world is yourself.”

    Luongo said she, too, had gone to authorities with her fears late last summer, heading to the Winchester Police Department to tell them she and other neighbors were afraid.

    Police told her not to worry, she said: They were shadowing Yao when he went out at night.

    “They knew he was on their watch list,” she said.

    Winchester police declined to comment on her allegation Saturday.

    Alex McDonough, 24, who went to Winchester High School with Yao, said his former classmate began exhibiting strange behavior during his junior or senior year. He boasted about not bathing and posted an insensitive comment on Facebook about a student who had died, McDonough said.

    “He started getting strange and started alienating people,” said McDonough, who lives in Providence. “No one’s quite sure why it happened or how it happened.”

    He said he tried to talk to Yao about his hygiene, but Yao didn’t seem interested. He eventually blocked Yao on social media and lost track of him after graduation in 2012. But he said he didn’t know Yao to be violent.

    “It was kind of tough to watch the gradual decline,” McDonough said.

    No one answered the door Saturday at Yao’s home. Neighbors said his parents were good people who were doing the best they could to help their son, who had wrestled and ran on the cross-country team in high school.

    “He was a wonderful kid,” said one woman, who declined to give her name. Her sister went to school with Yao, she said, and her son wrestled with him. Yao had always seemed young for his age, and small — never a threat.

    “Something bad happened in his head,” she said.

    Jeffrey Yao reportedly lived in this Farrow Street home in Winchester.

  17. Its time for trump to stop with all the political correctness and label this what it is both the shooter and his enablers. Radical American Terrorist Scum. R.A.T.S

  18. More gun control um miss Hebbon it’s your job to make sure that people are following the gun laws! I don’t know what kind of law You are in but before you shoot your ideas out there. Learn more about gun laws and argue from that common sense right?

  19. Everyone has a fight or flight reaction. When you’re stuck in a corner you’ll fight. Give those teachers guns and make sure they can use them and school shooting massacres won’t happen.

  20. Wtf is a semi-assult rifle? How are you asking for more gun control when you don't even have a clear understanding on firearm? Absolutely ridiculous.

  21. Absolutely no talk about banning restricting or controlling psychotropic drugs which are indeed the leading cause of any type of violence regardless of the implement used…. what fucking feckless morons!!.

  22. If a rifle purchase age increase to 21 than our military personnel age shall be increase as well. It honestly doesn't make any sense why someone could join the military at age 18 but he/she can't purchase a firearm until they're 21. People make the argument at age 18 you're not even consider an adult yet then what I hear is that our government is willing to send kids out into war.

  23. FACT: Restrictions on gun ownership = fewer gun-related deaths. Evidence – Restrictons in Germany, Australia, Japan, the U.K, etc. Google it.Why do people in the U.S. have this weird attachment to guns? That's the mental health issue.

  24. Police are PAID to "Protect and Serve" The Coward Cops hiding behind cars outside were being PAID TO BE THERE! Even IF 911 were called it takes 6 to 10 minutes to Respond, this Fruitcake was FINISHED in 6 minutes and left the school, GONE! We NEED Metal Detectors at Entrances/Exits to Schools along with Plain Clothes Armed Guards, NO Response Time, they are already THERE!!! They do that at Airports, Federal Buildings, Banks and SO MANY other buildings, not to mention the #Hollyweird Crowd Screaming for Gun Control with ARMED GUARDS and living in Gated Communities with Armed Guards Patrolling the streets within!

  25. The logic of you gun nuts is almost comical. America has 44% of the worlds civilian guns, what's the solution? Duhh…………………moar guns? MOAR GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!…………………..

  26. Everybody wants to blame everything else except for the real problem. We have people all over the world with multiple illnesses in so many other countries and they’re not having the problems we are having . There are kids bullied all over the world and they aren’t having the problems we are having . There are people all over the world that play violent video games and violent movies but they are not having the problems that we are having. Why? I know why and everybody else does too they’re just afraid of the answer. GUN LAWS

  27. The REAL history of so called "Gun Control". THIS is what you cowards are supporting.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVs9psi_G5k

  28. Why don’t we lock down our schools. This person should have never been able to get back on campus. Why are we not talking about it.

  29. i did not kill anyone,you want to change the 2ed amd. see ARTICLE 5 of the CONSTITUTION,you will not get my guns or my vote.

    these are not everyday people ,FOX IS BRAIN DEAD.

  30. Yes lets prolong kids being kids because we haven't been doing enough of that already (Sarcasm). I mean really, at 18 you have the mental capacity to understand everything you need to in order to start learning about life. If you keep extending the age of access to things you deem harmful then you are simply extending the time in which people will experiment with and understand why these things are harmful. We really don't need people finally becoming functioning and productive citizens at the age of 25 or 30 after they finally get all the hard lessons out of the way. Your just extending the harsh lessons in life thus making them more difficult to deal with further on. If you can live on your own at 18 then you have the right to protect yourself at 18. These solutions people propose are so baseless its more harmful than good.

  31. Fact: The 2A is an individual right unconnected to service in a militia.

    Fact: There are 320 million people in America but only 628,000 police officers. (But we all know the Left hates police)

    Fact: A recent National Association of Chiefs of Police survey found that 86.4 percent of 20,000 police chiefs and sheriffs support concealed carry and are overwhelmingly against further gun control. 

    Fact: According to the Centers for Disease Control, which found that gun ownership increased by 56 percent, and yet gun violence declined by almost 50 percent 

    Fact: A Nov. 26, 2013 study found that, between 1980 and 2009, "assault weapons bans did not significantly affect murder rates at the state level" and "states with restrictions on the carrying of concealed weapons had higher gun-related murders.

    Fact: Senator Dianne Feinstein, a gun control advocate, carried a concealed gun when her life was threatened and her home attacked by the New World Liberation Front in the 1970s.

    Fact: According to the CDC's "Leading Causes of Death Reports," between 1999 and 2013, Americans were 21.5 times more likely to die of heart disease (9,691,733 deaths); 18.7 times more likely to die of malignant tumors (8,458,868 deaths); and 2.4 times more likely to die of diabetes or 2.3 times more likely to die of Alzheimer's (1,080,298 and 1,053,207 respectively) than to die from a firearm (whether by accident, homicide, or suicide). [4] The flu and related pneumonia (875,143 deaths); traffic accidents (594,280 deaths); and poisoning whether via accident, homicide, or suicide (475,907 deaths) all killed more people between 1999 and 2013 than firearms. 

    Fact: Japan has a low gun ownership rate at 0.6 guns per 100 people and a high suicide rate of 18.41 suicides per 100,000 people in 1997 (ranking it 11 out of 71 countries). South Korea has a low gun ownership rate (1.1 guns per 100 people) but has a high rate of suicide and the highest rate of gun suicides (12.63 per 100,000 people in 1997). By contrast the United States has the 26th highest suicide rate (12.3 suicides per 100,000 people in 2011) and the highest gun ownership rate (88.8 guns per 100 people).

    Fact:Mexico has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world and yet, in 2012, Mexico had 11,309 gun murders (9.97 gun homicides per 100,000 people) compared to the United States that had 9,146 gun homicides (2.97 per 100,000 people).

    Fact: Gun massacres are not the only or even the most lethal form of gun violence.

    Fact: A ban on military-style weapons of the kind used in the two most recent high-profile gun massacres and in so many others before—wouldn’t have an effect on gun violence in America, which tends to be concentrated on handguns.

  32. There are 30,000 firearm related deaths per year. The US population as of Wednesday 22, 2016 is 324,059,091 people. Do the math, 0.00925% of the population dies from firearms each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant. What is never explained, however, is the breakdown of those 30,000 firearm related deaths.

    •65% of those deaths are suicides
    •15% are Law Enforcement justified in the Use of Force
    •17% are through criminal activity
    •3% are accidental discharges

    So, after breaking it down. Those 30,000 deaths from "gun violence" really boil down to 5,100 people dead from REAL gun violence. Still too low, you say? Lets see how those deaths are spanned across the nation, shall we?

    •480 homicides (9.4%) in Chicago
    •344 homicides (6.7%) in Baltimore
    •333 homicides (6.5%) in Detroit
    •119 homicides (2.3%) in Washington D.C. ( A 54% increase over prior years)

    So, about 25% of all gun crimes happen in just 4 American cities. All four of those cities have strict gun control, so it is not the lack of gun control that is the root cause there.

    This essentially leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation, or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some states have higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 while Alabama had 1.

    Of those two states, which has stricter gun control? Yep, California is correct. Obviously, it isnt the guns causing this. Instead, it is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So, if all cities and states are not created equally, then there must be something other than the tool causing gun deaths.

    Are 5,100 gun deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commision of a crime but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, rape, murder, and assault are commited by criminals and thinking that criminals will obey the law is ludicrous. That is why they are criminals.

    But lets see how those how firearm related deaths stack up against some of the leading causes of death for Americans.

    •40,000+ deaths per year from Drug Overdoses.
    •36,000 deaths per year from Influenza (The Flu).
    •34,000 deaths per year from traffic fatalities.

    Each one of those exceeds the total number of firearm related deaths, including suicides.

    But wait! The rabbit hole goes deeper!

    •200,000+ deaths per year (And growing) from preventable Medical Errors. You are safer in a Chicago than in a hospital.

    •710,000 deaths per year are attributed to Heart Disease.

    Even a 10% decrease in Cardiac deaths would save twice the number of lives annually that all firearm related deaths. A 10% reduction in Medical Errors would be 66% of the total firearm related deaths or four times the amount of Criminal Homicides.

    Gun Control is obviously not about saving lives. Our Founding Fathers, in their infinite wisdom, placed the Second Amendment in the Constitution for several reasons. Clearly, when it comes to "Gun Control", the important part is "control", not "gun".

  34. "We believe in absolutely gun-free, zero-tolerance, totally safe schools. That means no guns in America’s schools. Period."
    — Wayne LaPierre, then Executive Vice President of the NRA, in 1999

  35. I think we have two choices: 1. China’s model – you don’t have guns and you don’t have your privacy and 2. Israel’s model – everyone carry guns and keep your privacy. Both countries are safer than USA.

  36. Wtf? "Assault Rifle's" are named. Aka full auto and burst capabilities. Modern Sporting rifles aka semi autos are legal. Ppl will kill no mater what. Cars kill more ppl every year that "M. S. R. Get over it. Ban cans and hammers or even knives. Just another attempt by the DNC to over rule the 2nd.

  37. Help me please for subs. so stressful because all other channel said that the content doesn't have any content…. help help help. thanks.

  38. Let’s say we ban “Civilian Ownership of Guns”, exactly what “Successful Government Model” do we propose to use?
    Alcohol Prohibition created “Bootleggers”.
    Our Drug Prohibition created the “Mass International Drug Cartels” that control large amounts of Central/South American Countries.

    Americans crave what we are told we “can’t have”, culturally we love “Forbidden fruit”.

    If we ban lawful ownership of guns, the net effect will be the only people who will have guns will be the police and criminals.

    With current off the shelf technology which is becoming more available, the days where people can “HOME BUILD” their “Military grade ghost guns” easier than “Home growing” their own “Marijuana” is here.

    Reality is “Gun Regulation” will limit access and that may be enough to stop some shooters, however “Prohibition” will massively expand the “Black Market” in illegal arms in the US and when that market starts tapping the international black market, we will see “real military” grade arms in criminal hands.

    So if any of you support “banning guns”, please explain how you will make that work with “Americans”, other countries have different cultures and different laws. Most countries don’t have our ‘Bill of Rights”, so unless you advocate eliminating things like “due process”, “search warrants”, “right to trial by jury”, “the presumption of Innocence”, etc. etc., what may have worked in other countries is unlikely to work here.

  39. how much training did he need? he had a gun, the authority to use it and heard shots in school. he. like most law abiding gun owning citizens of your fine country, should have gone in and taken that scumbag down! the future is dependant on our children, my heartfelt condolences to all affected, fight for the second amendment, never give in to state control, that's why the second was written into your constitution

  40. Notice how all the mainstream media including Fox news keeps using the words Assault Weapon. In reality Assault weapons have been banned for quite some time now, what these fucking idiots are trying to do is brainwash people into believing that AR-15's are assault rifles. Wrong, A AR-15 is a ARMALITE RIFLE and anybody that knows anything about guns knows that. We wont be giving up our guns, none of them. All because these pussies look at a AR-15 and it looks scary to them, does not give them the right to trample on the 2nd Amendment. They will find out what happens when they push us too far. If they think they are banning semi automatic weapons they are high on crack.

  41. More than 50% of people in the USA will have used prescription psychotic drugs at some point in their life. Some will argue that it is over prescribing by doctors others will say if it helps, do it. The anti-gun group will use this as a “common sense” measure to band these people from getting or possessing guns. I personally believe if this were to happen, even more people will be put on the drugs (i.e., let’s give this a try) so it is on their record. Yes, even doctors are anti-gun.

  42. How many people are killed with knives every year. That's more than all the mass shootings we have had in the last 15 years. Do away with Gun Free Zones.

  43. The "GOOD GUY WITH A GUN" was a BIG success. Good idea Wayne. I wish Trump had gone into the school to confront the shooter. That would have worked out well. Arm all teachers with assault rifles. Pray 'n spray.

  44. If you are attacked in a gun controlled building and you return fire you are subject for prosecution. Not one law officer fired not one round in their defense. They stood outside the building, all of them, not just the truancy officer and waited before going in. Law enforcement failed to stoped this and now you want us to think menta health workers can. The thing that deters an attack is armed class.

  45. The gun control laws are killing people. People are dying unarmed completely defenseless in these gun control buildings.

  46. If law enforcement is not trained after all the millions of dollars we have spent on training and equipment , let the individual under attack have the right to protect themselves.

  47. How long did the other officers stand outside. Whyy are you leaving them out of that conversation. They did the same thing in Columbine. Law enforcement stood outside the building at those kids were attacked then and now.

  48. That guy didnt want to die that day oath or no oath bottom line . Maybe if it was a one shooter he may have went in lol! Yall intellectuals are the jerks of the planet lol!!

  49. Keep buying guns an forming your millitias you will be like syria . The media help boost the sales of assault weapons now every other houshold own one or more.The elections of the past two decades were pretty tense an its getting worst. A new civil war wont be the north agianst the south but liberials agianist conservitives .This gun debate could be the spark. Its a trap to impose martial law .Population control is a serious issue an the average so called americans dont realize it. The solution for the healthcare problem in this country is decreasing the population plain an simple. .The New World Order is in effect! An any type of violent uprising because of race politics or any of the issues that are major headlines for the media the instigators in all of this .The goverment will pick sides an slaughter the masses in droves.Religion is the spark in the islammic world communist in china russia north korea an a host of other countries.. The U.S spark is a combination of all of the above along with rascism feminism gay rights an a host of others issues. Rather its the governent intention or not an I hope not! Something has to be done to control the masses through out the world where in very hostile times.Lets hope our goverment is by the people an for the people!!!

  50. So DB, an amendment written in about 1790 is applicable in 2018. I don't think the forefathers anticipated semi auto weapons in the Militia's hands. By the way, why did the law change in relation to someone walking in front of a motor vehicle with a red flag? Oh hang on, maybe it was because the law was first made nearly a century ago.

  51. If you raise the age to 21, you better raise the age to join the military to 21.
    Bet your ass the government doesn't want to lose that much man power.

  52. The heart,the cells, the Mind, the soul is a self regulator and it can keep in balance its emotional control when at a breaking point. In fact the organism of Man naturally learns how to survive by dramatic and overpowering challenges as seen in context of sports and other stresses we put on our Mind and Bodies. In this society we are a feel good society where materialism acts as a sedative to any feelings of stress or discomfort creating a situation where the Body Mind,the brain,the soul cannot build up the confront and tolerance for conditions that we naturally should live through.psychiatric medications are used to kill our senses but in fact kill the person slowly who then acts out the death of himself by causing the death of others.
    While what this man is saying is true the one single psychotic break in reality common amongst these youth is a further deranged and uncontrolled mental function cause by psychiatric medications. The difference between youth who suffer through life's challenges subjective and objective are those who are on these psychiatric medications, commit these crimes and show true anti social conditions because of an evolved brain disorder because of a growing brain having a dangerous biochemical change by psychiatric medications. These conditions are created to create the concept of pschos as a generality to further sell drugs and gain more control over the youthful populations. In the earlier years it was the over use of LSD and other drugs.

  53. So aren’t the police trained for mass shootings. It’s simple draw your gun, watch your corners, look out for civilians, no cross fire an no friendly fire.

  54. I'm a strong liberal and anti-gun advocate. LOVE the convo fox is having! I do support protecting gun rights but we need change ang control!

  55. I just have one question WTF is an AK 15 and if you are going to debate a topic then why don't you find someone that knows the basics of WTF they are talking about the military doesn't use semi auto rifles

  56. Locke (Two Treatises of Government) and Hobbes (Leviathan) both believed this:

    "Life: everyone is entitled to live.
    Liberty: everyone is entitled to do anything they want to so long as it doesn't conflict with the first right.
    Estate: everyone is entitled to own all they create or gain through gift or trade so long as it doesn't conflict with the first two rights. (You know it as pursuit of happiness after Jefferson put his own "touch" on the wording)"

    A firearm is considered estate /property and as an american in a social contract (government) with fellow american's it is every individuals duty to ensure that the prior mentioned natural rights are in place for everyone.

    it's important to note that both estate and liberty are both not sacrosanct rights, only Life is.

    The English Bill of Rights 1689 was written as a result of the glorious revolution against King James II where his Paptist standing army would terrorise the protestant general Populace if they fell out of line, as a result the government/detractors sent out 'posse comitatus' (Latin for Power of The County) commands to the surrounding counties for every able bodied men to bear arms in the county militia under the regulation of the respective county sheriffs to stop James II advancing standing army from taking London and the government.

    after it was done the government fulfilled the bill of rights based on the principles set out by Locke who had learned everything from the writings of Cicero (A bilingual roman Lawyer/Politician who translated the greek philosophies into latin for the roman empire) to restrict the powers of the crown when making laws that would affect the people with respect to their protestant religion. (age of enlightenment, protestant reformation)

    One of the Rights was:
    "Protestants may have arms for their defence suitable to their conditions and as allowed by law;"

    which is interpreted by William Blackstone as thus:

    "The fifth and last auxiliary right of the subject, that I shall at present mention, is that of having arms for their defence, suitable to their condition and degree, and such as are allowed by law. Which is also declared by the same statute. and is indeed a public allowance, under due restrictions, of the natural right of resistance and self-preservation, when the sanctions of society and laws are found insufficient to restrain the violence of oppression. (when the social contract has failed)."

    and Mason used it in the Virginia Declaration of Rights as This:

    "That a well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power. "

    All of the Constitution and the Amendments are based on the English Bill of Rights 1689 and the Magna Carta, the anti-federalists as you refer to them we're asking for nothing more than the basic rights they once held as British subjects to be maintained.

    the purpose of bearing arms is for the defence of the county/state and the rights of your constituents under the direction of the county sheriff and if you don't believe that ask yourself what is a "sheriffs posse".

  57. I think we need real dialouge an not people trying to score points or comming up with these far from reality suggestions.

  58. I think we need to stick to reality on this issue . Theres no getting around the problem of guns! Lets not sugar coat this epidemic.

  59. When it comes to the gun issue we cant compare the U.S to Isreal or any european countries . We can compare them to drug infested countries an So called terrorist nations.

  60. I was a DECORATED COMBAT VET at 21…whats next..mommy can i buy a 22lr now..i dont know Dell, why dont you call the Democraps and ask them..they banned most of them in 2018..

  61. America is under judgement.America is part of the Northern KIngdom of Israel,whom God divorced,and sent out of his sight and scattered.WHY?For false god worship,sacraficing to false gods,idolatry,being into the occult and witchcraft.THIS the Northern KIngdom of Israel is STILL doing to this very day.The majority.REPENT America before it is to late.Read the book of Enoch.Audio version on youtube.See Trey Smith`s videos on the Nephilim.Read the Book of Acts,king james version.The whole human race is being taken over by demons.The disembodied spirits of the giants.The children of the fallen angels and human women.Killed in the flood of Noah.See the video routing demons by John EChardt.See the video deliverance from autism by Brother Carlos.See video by Winn Worley,Derek prince,and John Echardt.See the video Identity Crisis by Jim Staley.See videos by Jack Flaws on the lost tribes of Israel.

  62. I have a hard time with people who have no clue about guns magically having the knowledge and experience to regulate them. Maybe you folks need better facts. A semi auto hunting rifle that chambers the same ammo will do the exact same amount of damage as an AR-15. The true definition of an assault rifle is any rifle that can be turned into full auto at the flip of a switch. The police do not have them, and you cannot buy one at any gunstore. The only people who are allowed to use weapons like this are the military. No full auto AR-15 is sold to the public. A semi auto hunting rifle will fire just as fast as an AR-15. The only difference is some hydro-formed aluminum and some black plastic. Did you know that more teenagers die behind the wheel of the Ford F-150 every month, than have died in all the school shootings from the last ten years? So what do you folks want to ban now?

  63. No Compromise… no new Gun bills –  Never allow others to know who is carrying. One fully armed officer per 1,000 students.. Hall Monitors by video feeds… per floor, each entrance into the school, at each stairwell and at the gym entrances… As with large stores, code word given over their PA system for "weapons on the floor" Example; " 99 1st floor, west side'" Officers are in communication with each other and pass along their 20(location) to the others and they can converge. And be a wear of multiple shooters…. It all takes training…

  64. D B quotes from the 2nd Amendment. He uses the original text "a well regulated militia". The Founding Fathers did not write "all Americans should be entitled to own arms, use them without training, and should not be evaluated for fitness prior to obtaining a weapon". They used the phrase "well regulated militia". Regulated implies subject to regulation. It does not imply that anyone should be allowed to own or operate weapons. Well regulated militias exist here in the US. We call them the National Guard. They are peace-keepers, property protectors when natural disasters strike, and maintainers of order when social forces cause potential calamity. They do not use their weapons (which they have been trained to use, and understand the responsibility) for irrational violence. You might want to research the "well regulated militia" phrase, and then compare it to what you hear from the NRA. You might learn something.

  65. NO MORE GUN CONTROL AGAINST AMERICA…
    WE THE PEOPLE WILL NOT PANDER TO LIBERALISM..
    AMERICAN'S NEED TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THEMSELVES…
    SIMPLE EQUATION….
    AMERICAN'S NEED TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THEMSELVES…
    STOP THE MADNESS OF GUN CONTROL AGAINST OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC…
    I SUPPORT THE SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF AMERICA…
    I SUPPORT THE NRA…
    FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS…
    GOD BLESS AMERICA…

  66. The people that believe civilians don't need guns should pay close attention to this case. There were many, many red flags that the school, police and even the FBI had on this man before hand and they failed to act. The see something say something was done by students, teachers and family members on this guy and the government failed again. There were four armed police that were trained to go into an active shooting but didn't go. For four minutes these four police officers stayed outside while children were being slaughtered. Had teachers and staff been armed this could have stopped him very early on by several people. And you want to rely on the police when something goes bump in the night at your own home?

  67. PROTECTING YOURSELF IS VERY IMPORTANT!! SHOULD JUST OLDER PEOPLE HAVE THIS RIGHT? Come to SW Florida where the Drug Mafia haunts the lives of anyone who talks and has made workers their prisoners, controlling wages and laundering money. The Mafia consists of the criminal Cop Brotherhood, criminal druggie lawyers ($20M street value for every shipment of cocaine), contractors supplementing their incomes with drug money, all Realtors who are making money or the Mafia haunts their life, nonprofit Exec.

IN OTHER WORDS, YOU ARE THE EVIL CHAUVINIST WHITE BOY DRUGGIE CRIMINALS' SERVANT, PUPPET, TOY, SLAVE & PRISONER!! CALL ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE DETAILS! OVER 30 YEARS OF ENSLAVING & HAUNTING PEOPLE'S LIVES SO THESE WHITE-BOY CHAUVINIST PREJUDICE LOSER F-UPS COPS/LAWYERS & THEIR ENTOURAGE CAN PARTY ENDLESSLY WITH THEIR DRUGS & LIVE BIG IN PARADISE. 941-637-6797.

STUDENTS ARE BEING BRAINWASHED TO THINK FREE SPEECH ISN'T POLITICALLY CORRECT!!! GIVE UP OUR GUNS SO THESE ANIMAL COPS & LAWYERS CAN CONTROL US, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE F'ING KIDDING. THESE MONSTERS LOVE LIBERAL DREAMERS AND STUDENTS ARE THEIR BEST TARGETS FOR THEIR BRAINWASHING TECHNIQUES SO THEY CAN PUSH AMERICA RIGHT INTO THE HANDS OF ANOTHER COUNTRY'S CONTROL! LIBERALS HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED TO JOIN A FOREIGN SCHEME TO DESTROY AMERICA!!! IF LIBERALS ARE THAT UNHAPPY WITH AMERICA THEN GET THE HELL OUT! THEIR NEVER-ENDING DEMAND FOR UNREALISTIC CHANGE IS DANGEROUS TO DEMOCRACY! IDEALISM IS ONE THING BUT STUPIDITY IS UNACCEPTABLE. GET THE LIBERAL DUMBASSES WHO ARE NOTHING BUT A THREAT TO OUR FREEDOM OUT OF AMERICA!

    I was harassed and haunted by a British woman who owns a home in Florida and winters here annually! She and her husband are part of the Mafia and brainwashing is their one of their main strategy. THE LIBERALS HAVE INFILTRATED THE MEDIA AND IT IS "FAKE NEWS!" THEY ARE PART OF THE MAFIA BRAINWASHING AMERICA! ARE THOSE THIN FIGURES OF THE LIBERAL BROADCASTERS LEGITIMATE OR FROM SNORTING COCAINE FROM THE DRUG MAFIA WHICH IS LOADED WITH FOREIGNERS WANTING TO DESTROY AMERICA? THERE ARE A LOT OF FOREIGNERS THAT WE NEED TO GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY! The comment about not saying anything about people unless you have something good to say about them is total BS and exactly why we have a terrorist Mafia expanding massively in America! WHILE LIBERALS ARE BLABBING AWAY, THEY WANT LOYAL CONSERVATIVE AMERICANS TO SHUT UP BECAUSE THEY HAVE A BRAINWASHING PLAN DEVISED BY FOREIGNERS TO DESTROY AMERICA!!!

THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER WAYS WE CAN PROTECT OUR SCHOOLS WITHOUT STRIPPING AMERICANS OF THEIR RIGHT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES!

  68. March 27th 2018
    Yeah I keep hearing a lot of hogwash on guns and a half a million children prompted into demonstrating against our 2nd amendment and our rights to own and bear arms. Perspective is that more people die from drug misuse and abuse (usually illegal drugs) in one day than all of the gun misuse in many years of time here in the US. So then why not build the wall and work on stamping out this unlawful, vicious enemy that brings in and distributes all of this poison using their own guns, cash & dope. This is the greatest danger and threat we Americans have ever been faced with and this is a dangerous evasion. This is real and at large everywhere.
    Human rights issues should also take into account the rights of our youth not to be subjected to these poisonous drugs and wisely consider the awesome statistics on percentages here. We were taught math in school and so we need to couple our math skills in phase and unison with truth, courage, perspective, reality and wisdom. Too much theory, ideology, unrealistic daydreaming will not stop the blood-thirsts of our enemies, but only decisive counter actions will.
    We should have a Congressional Declaration of War on illegal and dangerous drugs, their manufactures and pushers, if Congress had any gumption this would have already been done. The least Congress could do now is stand behind our President on this. I think the majority of the people stand with President Trump on this dangerous drug issue.

  69. Here's how it is: A really good way to get killed in America is to carry gun. You are immediately considered high risk. Black, white, anything. Officers will always assume you are about to kill them. And to think that there's INCREASING encouragement to carry guns.

    There argument from this Right is "There are more good people in the world than bad people. So if everybody has a gun, the good people will keep the bad people in check." A fatal calculation. America has the most guns. And the most deaths. "[T]he overall rates are substantially higher in the United States than in these competitor nations." (Stanford University) https://law.stanford.edu/2015/09/03/how-us-gun-control-compares-to-the-rest-of-the-world/

    So in fact, treating guns like cars–meaning well regulated–is one clear option to preventing many deaths. Of course, only if that's what you're after. This means universal background checks, banning automatic and semi-automatic weapons, and banning high-capacity magazines.

    And if that hasn't brought you over to the progressive side, let me take it home for you. MORE GUNS. Stay with me. EQUALS MORE DEATH. Thanks for reading.

    Use your guns wisely. The goal is not to confiscate all guns, contrary to propaganda.

  70. Automatic weapons have been around for almost a hundred years, and they've been readily available until recently. The only thing that's changed is the media turning shooters into celebrities.
