  1. 61% of Americans at the national level want stricter gun control laws.
    64% of homicides in America are gun-related; 31% in Canada; 13% in Australia; 4% in the UK.
    The US is #1 in terms of guns per 100 people at 120. (Yes, that means more guns than people.)
    38,656 people died from a gun in 2016. 22,938 suicides, 14,415 homicides; 1,305 other

    And despite decades of conservatives saying "liberals will take your guns away," it has never happened.

  2. Well it's about time Congress started taking common sense gun control seriously. And don't look now, but Mark Kelly, husband of former rep. and gun violence survivor (and activist) Gabby Giffords, is running for Senate in Arizona. Needless to say, I'm excited for you Arizona Dems and anti-Trump independents. Especially gotta give a shout out to my friend Daisy Elmir โ˜บ I'm rooting for y'all ๐Ÿ‘

  3. Guns are used on average 2.5 million times per year for SELF DEFENSE.

    The Demonrats want people to die. Killing babies isn't enough for them.

  4. Passed the House but not the Senate… Perhaps now is a good time to face the reality our Senate where all 50 states are equal in power without regard to population size effectively takes the power of the Majority transferring that power to far fewer numerous sparsely populated mostly Red States… That's unfair and undemocratic and needs to change NOW…
    Make our Senate, Democratic, and make America a true Democracy once and for all… Empower the Majority of Americans…

  5. Get rid of the republican traitors and something constructive gets done. They need to investigate Devin Nunes and his cronies asap.

  6. And now you need to require applicants to have gone through some training and passed a test about firearms and the law.
    I suggest you need a fundamental culture shift from a right to own, to a privilege that entails strict laws and a heavy responsibility.

  7. People act like there taking the guns away calm down buddies take it easy with jumping the gun on ohh guns saves life why take them away there actually just tlking about background checks id say thats a start ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘โœŒ


  9. Well will you look at that? Now that the NRA is bankrupt and shamed, leaving their Citizens United financial lobbying power crippled and non-functional, suddenly gun legislation sails through without a hitch when republicans know that they cannot count on the NRA's "donations" (pronounced "bribes") anymore…Coincidence? I think not.

  10. There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state.
    The first is the most important.

    1) Healthcare โ€“ Control healthcare and you control the people.ย 
    2) Poverty โ€“ Increase the poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.ย 
    3) Debt โ€“ Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes and this will produce more poverty.
    4) Gun control โ€“ Remove peopleโ€™s ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.
    5) Welfare โ€“ Take control of every aspect of peopleโ€™s lives (food, housing and income).
    6) Education โ€“ Take control of what people read and listen to; take control of what children learn in school. THINK COMMON CORE.
    7) Religion โ€“ Remove the belief in God from the government and schools.ย 
    8) Class warfare โ€“ Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take from (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor. Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?

    Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Leninโ€™s original scheme for world conquest by communism, under Russian rule.

    Stalin described his converts as โ€œuseful idiots.โ€

    The โ€œuseful idiotsโ€ have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control.

    It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the United States of America and Europe!

    If people can read this and still say everything is just fine, they are useful idiots.

  11. Null and void unconstitutional so not valid criminals do not go through background checks so again a do nothing bill go figure!

  12. This bill is simply common sense, at the very least a start towards creating a safer environment for people, including school kids.

  13. As someone who has witnessed the war on drugs decimate his community at a disproportionate level, I see Democrats pushing a war on guns will only double the amount of violent police encounters. No wonder so many people like me have walked away from the democratic party.

  14. Hi Rachel Anne.๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿบ.
    Exceptional reporting, Rachel.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.
    Keep on digging, Rachel.๐Ÿ‘.
    ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰Patience democrats, patience.๐Ÿ‘.
    ๐Ÿ‘‰Proceed๐Ÿ‘ˆ. Congrats democrats.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.

  15. It is a truly sad sight to see the millions of people following Maddow right now. She is a proven liar and this is NOT opinion. It is a fact. She misrepresents everything to create her ratings gold Red Scare narrative and you are buying it. A BIPARTISAN Senate Intelligence report has said they ALL agree there is NO evidence of Trump collusion at this time. PERIOD. Maddow has been LYING to your face every day since 2016 and you swallowed it all. Look in the mirror and see reality. Time to get over your hate of Trump and join the sane people. Here is Jimmy Dore who has been on top of this all along .

  16. I very much doubt that that NRA supports background checks for ALL guns sales. It would mean the end of "gun shows", which are like flea markets but for guns and related things, and also the end of people selling guns to friends, neighbors, relatives, and strangers without any paperwork. (They most often find the strangers at gun shows.) The Gun Control Act of 1968 deliberately did NOT regulate sales of guns between two residents of the same state (unless one or both was engaging in the sale of guns as a regular business). This was to keep from making a large number of ordinary, but ignorant, people into criminals. Perhaps it is time for that to come to an end, though. Legal titles have been required for motor vehicle sales since time immemorial.

  17. Congress is doing a phenomenal job, hearing the people's voices, and submitting multiple bills for needed reform! Unfortunately the Republicans are following their old format – reject EVERYTHING!

  18. Interesting.. So do you think it's a coincidence that this gets passed right when NRA is going bankrupt??? Yeah, no $$$ No pro gun laws, I guess,.

  19. Quick question, Rachel: Do you happen to know if the Senate found any evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians??

    Too soon?

  20. Rachel has been exposed as an Establishment Corporate shill and a war monger. I can no longer stand to watch her endless hyperventilating and fake outrage while she gets on her knees for her Corporate Masters.

  21. In my say don't like the liberals messing with my 2nd amendment don't believe the republicans senate will pass this period any agree ?

  22. This addresses private sales only as commercial sales already require background checks. Form 4473, required record by law, canโ€™t be completed without a NICS transaction number.
