    *Everybody disliked that*

  2. HAND HOLE PRODUCTIONS on September 23, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    You can ban the salt weapons all you want but our constitution says we can bear arms and it doesn’t specify what guns and I will keep my assault rifles thank you you can try to take them from me but I don’t think that’s going to happen in fact I know it’s not going to happen try if you dare

  3. Rattle Snake on September 23, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Well time to buy 4 guns.

  4. First Last on September 23, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Truth about gun control statistics…

  5. Pajtim Pacuku on September 23, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    U stop all ilegal guns first
    Theyre more ilegal guns in usa than non ilegal ones

    “Assault weapons” are responsible for 3% of firearm deaths per year.

    The only people that support an “assault weapons ban” are the people that haven’t don’t their own research.

  7. Nick Kane on September 23, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    It is so counterproductive for Democrats to pass this bill that they know will not be signed into law. This only pressures the public into frantically purchase many more firearms.

  8. Vinny Akiki on September 23, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    If this becomes law I want the militia of this country to come armed to the teeth. “ when tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty.” – Thomas Jefferson

    If you support the 2A, and you are considering enlisting in the National Guard or reenlisting, we’re asking you to NOT do that IF your state maintains anti-2A laws that do not include exceptions for trained veterans such as yourself.

    If you are under 21 and living in state that infringes your 2A right, then why should you allow that state to EXPLOIT YOU by shoving a firearm in your hand for their purposes, while they show NO RESPECT for you? Many of us veterans were good enough to fight wars, but not good enough to have 2A rights? It’s an insult to our honorable service and many years of training.

    Thank you for serving but you can serve in other ways. Enlisting into active duty or Reserve duty is federal service. National Guard is STATE service. The National Guard is an “organized militia” as defined under 10 U.S. Code 246. DO NOT take an oath to obey the orders of a Governor that has NO RESPECT FOR YOU OR THE CONSTITUTION. Yes, the oath of enlistment for the National Guard swears allegiance to a governor!

    This boycott is NOT an attack on anyone that has served or is serving in the National Guard. This boycott is LEGAL RESISTANCE towards state governments that do not support our rights or the Constitution by and large. This type of action is the only thing that state governments seem to understand. DO NOT LET THEM EXPLOIT YOU.

    The states prohibit certain firearms for anyone under the age of 21. Why should you bear arms only for the state? California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Vermont, Washington and New York


  11. Halilovi 84 on September 23, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Give the people their Constitutionally protected right to buy weapons, with solid background checks, not stripping away their rights to purchase rifles. But this will not change anything in a country with more guns than people.

  12. Blake Craig on September 23, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    This won’t get past senate and especially Supreme Court. Nonetheless, how dare Americans feel entitled to assault weapons. They are for cartels etc with Obama concocted programs like fast and furious. Also, our there are too many terrorist cells through the Middle East and elsewhere that can use these not you Americans. Don’t forget our Allie’s also in proxy wars in Eastern Europe and Asia, as well.

  13. CSXRailfan RF&P SUB on September 23, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    define assult weapon for me umm umm thats for congress to decide

  14. Daniel Resendiz on September 23, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Just a reminder that trump banned bump stocks

  15. SwitchyPlayz on September 23, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    For the last time, there is no such thing as an "Assault Weapon", so what are they trying to ban?!

  16. D-is Loyal on September 23, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Good u don’t need an ar if no one has an ar dc about “gun rights”

  17. TheOppositionToMassRegurgitation on September 23, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Banning “assault weapons” makes as much sense as banning the people who are responsible for the highest level of violence, with them.

  18. Pajtim Pacuku on September 23, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    That will not happen in texas
    The court there will drop it down

  19. JinjirGimp on September 23, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Bring every person up on criminal charges that supported this Bill. They are criminals, who are infringing on our rights because they want more power over us.

  20. krrrruptidsoless on September 23, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    That’s discrimination to anyone coming of the age to purchase one.
    They are being discriminated against.

  21. Gshock714 on September 23, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Lock and load brothers and sisters,just be ready when SHTF from these communist

  22. Kyle Hemenway on September 23, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    So they want to make law-abiding citizens, criminals?!?!?!

  23. Lesko Brandon on September 23, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Wake up people the democrat party isn’t what you think they are. They aren’t the party of the “little guy”. They are the party of over taxation, racism, and misinformation, though. They have that going for them I guess..
    Wake up! The Republican Party isn’t the “old white racist politicians” they made you believe. It’s funny the ones that are though are the RINO’s 🙄

  24. Steve on September 23, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Russians are at war and u banned assault rifles for Americans . They invade our homes and u banned guns for americans..russian have assault rifles u just lost the war

  25. Ryan Palmer on September 23, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    The want to be dictators just look for anyway possible they can turn our country into a China

  26. Punx Not Dead on September 23, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    We need military guns! To fight govenment that are corrupt.

  27. Pancho Villa on September 23, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    I like to start by saying that law makers and Politicians should spend the time and effort to stop crime with the real criminals, nothing of what they do to affect the good citizens with license and permits will change anything since we are NOT the problem. If they are suing the gun makers, then you have to do the same with the car makers or knife factories!! we do not fall in your lies to try to disarm us, so you can keep with your dark agenda and have us limited in weapons to defend ourselves from a tyrant Government, the purpose of the 2nd amendment. Instead of your ridiculous Billionaire space projects spend our money in better Communities’ Education Police and Jobs and better Pay, you will reduce crime to the lowest in history. You don’t do this because Crime and Education are not your real interest at all! IS US WHAT YOU WANT! THE GOOD AWAKE CITIZENS WITH THE POWER OF KNOLDEDGE AND READY TO EXCERSISE THE AMENDMENT.

  29. G C on September 23, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Out of all the thing I honestly wouldn’t expect this and I’m a liberal and I think this is a bit crazy imo

  30. Truth Seeker on September 23, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    2019 comparison of deaths between Firearm related homicide:All Firearm deaths:All Vehicle deaths:All Suicides:Drug-induced deaths:Abortions is as follows
    2 : 4 : 4 : 5 : 7 : 63
    (per 10,000. i.e. 70,000 drug-induced deaths roughly)
    Obviously there will be some overlap between suicides and firearms but people always want to talk about the total firearm toll not just the homicide toll.
    Those curious about the total lives lost from these causes from 1996 to 2019 In the order of Firearm related homicide:All Firearm deaths:All Vehicle deaths:All Suicides:Drug-induced deaths:Abortions:Total death toll is as follows
    311,100 : 788,901 : 964,587 : 884,884 : 951,328 : 19,146,266 : 60,388,803
    that’s roughly 3 : 8 : 10 : 9 : 10 : 192 : 604
    But yes let’s continue the narrative that guns are the problem.

  31. Leigh Rich on September 23, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    All firearms need ban and confiscated.

  32. Not Sure on September 23, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Come take it

  33. blamthekaboom on September 23, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    funny how they always say "assault weapon" instead of "assault rifles". an "assault weapon" could be anything. seems like they dont just want to take away rifles but any means for an average citizen to defend themselves. fine you want my guns? you can have them but ill keep my grenades, landmines, missiles, tanks, jets, submarines, missile launchers and anything else i can get my hands on. eat it you gun grabbing nazis

  34. GKAME GAKILL on September 23, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    Good luck. Won’t work

  35. Ghost on September 23, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    Civilians who have never served or are not currently employed in the armed forces – law enforcement capacities should be restricted from being able to purchase & own assault weapons.

    Keep your bolt guns, hand guns and shot guns, but you all def have no need for semi or fully automatic platforms except to copy cat. 99% don’t even know how to maintain or employ those systems properly 😆

  36. Mopar3188 on September 23, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Come get em.

  37. YungJuze on September 23, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    they can come get mine

  38. anthony venney on September 23, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Do these fools and Washington really believe they’ll pass a bill and Americans will just hand their guns over. Well I guess they probably all still believe in the tooth fairy too.

  39. FalconFunds on September 23, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Banning any gun in america goes againt the united states 2nd amendment because we have the right to bear arms, qnd them trying to ban "assault" weapons is just them removing our 2nd amendment piece by piece.

  40. David Salas on September 23, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
    Abraham Lincoln

  41. Kuurth on September 23, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    The government totally wants to get rid of guns in citizens hands. They want every bit of control. Absolute power of the state.

  42. Dr Martin on September 23, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    The gmt already does what it wants against the constitution. The 18 y/o adults have proven that in a span of 6-8 years, with school they can literally make kids so dumb they’ll support anything. If there were no weapons in civilians hands imagine what they would pass and try to get away with
