    To all those feeling sad and pray for the families lost the loved ones. Stop praying and cast your vote against the people supporting nra and those in senate and congress who are against banning guns and assault weapons…

    Republicans only care about NRA bloodmoney, dead kids mean nothing to them

  3. John Spence on December 25, 2022 at 12:49 am

    How do you know a guy with a gun is a good guy??? They aren’t shooting at you.

    Is it not strange that a man who is a millionaire is telling you about how "elites" are telling you how to live your life. Of course this is the same guy who wants religion and religious beliefs of one religion to be abided by rather than the rights and freedoms we enjoy today.

    The Orange Pumpkin’s Economics Degree and his 50 Years of operating a Shady New York Real Estate Business does not help him understand Undiagonosed or Unmedicated People that is dealing with Mental Health Disorders. Everyone has Guaranteed Freedom and Rights under the United States Constitution which mean people with Personality Disorders and Mental Health Disorders are free to live their life and the right to do what they want to do until they violate the law which makes it imposible to prevent Random Public Shootings.

    The only way to stop school shootings is to arm children over 10 years. I’m glad Fox, NRA & the Republicans understand this.

  6. Chandrakanth Reddy on December 25, 2022 at 1:01 am

    Top 2 buffoons will suck up to NRA as usual as long as the money keeps flowing.

  7. Operaton Creation on December 25, 2022 at 1:01 am

    republicans are responsible for so many dead kids…

  8. Secular Logic on December 25, 2022 at 1:01 am

    If the founders were alive today, I believe they would be very concerned – because the Constitution is clear that the only militias protected by the Second Amendment are “well-regulated” units authorized and controlled by state governments, not a private citizen militia.

  9. Dan Jenkins on December 25, 2022 at 1:08 am

    The NRA are the ones that promote safe and responsible gun ownership yet they’re the ones who take the heat for what criminals do.

  10. Flat U Lent on December 25, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Be good for Ted Cruz to divide his NRA money by 21 and see what each of those Uvalde lives is worth to him. His next move will be to declare Uvalde a false flag…

  11. Ronda Love on December 25, 2022 at 1:11 am

    If any of those Teachers were Trained and Armed like me, Those babies would be Alive now,. How Bout That? FACTS! Guns Don’t Kill, People Do! FACTS!! Come and take it^^

  12. Aphiteth Lord of Light on December 25, 2022 at 1:11 am

    So people from other nations and groups are going to take advantage of my laws and do whatever they want in order to restrict my rights from me? It’s not unexpected or a surprise to say the least.

  13. Edward Patterson on December 25, 2022 at 1:15 am

    This man who is the governor of Texas is such a horrible person down there meeting the parents of the children massacre he still had time to make an audio recording for the NRA. Not only is he pushing guns but remember women he just signed a bill to become the master of your bodies .now remember women every time you get up in the morning . Abbott the governor of Texas will tell you what to do with your body because he has declared he is the boss

  14. peanut butter interior on December 25, 2022 at 1:15 am

    That’s the problem with America we believe we are the good guys! Not saying that we are not but we are the bad guys in certain situations

  15. E Garza on December 25, 2022 at 1:16 am

    "I’m honored to be here in the great state of Texas, with the wonderful patriots of the NRA. And unlike some, I didn’t disappoint you by not showing up. Got to show up," Trump said.

  16. LunarTide on December 25, 2022 at 1:20 am

    On a planet where the idiots outnumber the good guys placing more guns with less restrictions will never have a positive impact. If this statement doesn’t make sense to you than your an idiot.

  17. Cane Dewey on December 25, 2022 at 1:21 am

    Actually biden was fraudulently elected, nothing former about Trump

  18. Danny on December 25, 2022 at 1:22 am

    The cowardly cops who waited an hour while children were being murdered. We have call logs for kids a various times reporting dead bodies and active shooter. There were 15 or so cops afraid to enter the building because it was dangerous.
    This is only the beginning….all cowardly and corrupt cops will be brought to justice or at the very least fired.

    Ted doesn’t care….he only cares for organizations that donate to his campaign.

  19. Cypher B on December 25, 2022 at 1:22 am

    I feel sorry for the families yhat lost a child, but more gun control would give criminals a field day. Criminals will always , always, always, get and make guns. You and your babies would be at their complete mercy. Then what, if you ban guns outright but those who would do something like Uvalde, would just see them as a soft target.
    Criminals would still get guns and hurt the communities even worse, plus what depend on the police, the same police that don’t have to risk their lives for yours and our babies.
    The fact is evil exists, and besides the parents were begging the cops to give them their guns and let them go in.

  20. King on December 25, 2022 at 1:29 am

    It’s time for leadership change in Texas out with Cruz,Abbott, Paxton and Patrick .

  21. id2k on December 25, 2022 at 1:30 am

    we remember Waukesha and we remember Scalise, bidet voters will be held accountable for the madness of these years

  22. rommel6116 on December 25, 2022 at 1:30 am

    Why is USA the only country to have this problem?
    You can do something….. VOTE…. VOTE for people who will do something to prevent more senseless
    ENOUGH is ENOUGH !!!

  23. Brittney K01 on December 25, 2022 at 1:31 am

    Oh, no! Not ole “TEDDY-TEXAS-TWO-STEP-CANCUN CRUZ! Poor fella probably goes home to his two lil babies every nite, cries his out, only to get up the next day to “DO THE DANCE!” 🙄

    Ted Cruz told a British Reporter that America is a free country and is why everyone wants to move to the US. BS! Why would anyone want to go to the US because of the gun violence and so many Americans carrying them. So much racism, home grown terrorists militia that support the fascist evil authoritarian Trump. They tried to take over the newly elected President and Government because Trump kept on brainwashing them to believe a lie:conspiracy theory. Trump was delighted seeing the mayhem on Jan. 6. He approved that they were going to hang Mike Pence. This video is the usual bs propaganda! Gaslighting lying sociopaths. Dark $ and big $ donations to the Republican Party. Psychologically there are a lot of angry, misogynistic, racist and radicalized people that are killing Americans with guns like AK15 AR15 weapons used in war. It is the rhetoric that is repeated over and over to brainwash people and making them become radicalized and irrational logical thinking. Brainwashing and gaslighting is the Republican Party playbook. The US has the most shootings of any country. Hundreds per day. More guns to protect will only make it worse. The Republican Party receives millions of $. from the NRI. Good luck because even if you have a gun you cannotprotect yourself from being killed by a radicalized deranged brainwashed male with AK15s or other assault weapon.

    People need to start focusing on Teacher Unions… Where does all that money go?

  27. A. O'Moose on December 25, 2022 at 1:33 am

    Trump is a loser!

  28. mtayub780 on December 25, 2022 at 1:34 am

    First of all its funny that elected officials would attend this convention by a private organization

  29. NomadOperator on December 25, 2022 at 1:36 am

    beto is a beta – he can never win elections by politicizing this horrific event
