  1. I thought an ARMED society was a polite one though?? Gun nuts are always saying this. The solution here is obvious – MORE GUNS!!! 🤷‍♂️. Our problem in America is we are GUN OBSESSED. We have been brainwashed to believe someone is always out to get us and you better get a gun and get them before they get you. Japan had less than 10 gun deaths last year I believe. They are 1/3 the size of the U.S. Handguns are banned there and they have strict regulation on all others. But the main thing different about them, is they do not have a GUN CULTURE there. Guns are not romanticized. You dont have people owning dozens of them each! Sadly this is NEVER going to stop in America. There is NOTHING even remotely on the horizon that will curb gun violence. A country with more guns than people, is a VERY sick one!!!

  2. most of you have the impression that "gun violence" is on a rise, (actually less than 10% of what it was before the internet, cell phones (with cameras) and cameras everywhere)

  3. Its always the gun, and never the gunman. The gun violence surge coincided with the surge in crime in cities run by Democrats. No cash bail, prosecute the cops, defund police, set up homeless camps in your downtowns, let people riot for months with no response. Yeah, its the guns fault.

  4. "To death do us part," doesn't mean what it used to.☹️

  5. "Gentlemen… You are the top 1% of ALL naval aviators, the ELITE, the BEST of the best. We'll make you better."

    "THAT'S RIGHT! Ice man, I am dangerous."

    Isaiah 40:31
    “THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH! They shall MOUNT UP, with WINGS AS EAGLES; they shall run, and NOT be weary; and they shall walk, and NOT faint!”

    Revelation 3
    "Remember therefore how thou hast RECEIVED AND HEARD, and HOLD FAST, and REPENT. If therefore thou shalt not WATCH, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee."

    "He that OVERCOMETH, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will NOT blot out his name out of The Book of Life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his Angels."

    "I KNOW THY WORKS! BEHOLD… I have set before thee an OPEN DOOR, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast KEPT MY WORD, and hast NOT DENIED MY NAME!"

    "Because thou hast KEPT the word of my patience, I also will KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, which shall come upon ALL  THE WORLD, to try them that dwell upon the Earth."

    "BEHOLD, I COME QUICKLY! Hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy CROWN!"

    "The one who OVERCOMES I will make a PILLAR in the temple of My God, and he will never again leave it. Upon him I will write the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God (The new Jerusalem that COMES DOWN OUT OF HEAVEN from My God), and My new name."

    "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent (To TURN from sin)."

    "I KNOW YOUR DEEDS! You are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other!"

    "So, because you are LUKEWARM, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth."

    "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art WRETCHED, and MISERABLE, and POOR, and BLIND, and NAKED!"

    "I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be RICH; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness DO NOT APPEAR; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that THOU MAY SEE!"

    "BEHOLD!!! I stand at the door, and knock! if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I WILL come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."

    "To him that OVERCOMETH will I grant to sit with me in MY THRONE, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in HIS THRONE!"

    Revelation 12:14
    “And to the woman (The Bride of Christ) were given TWO WINGS OF A GREAT EAGLE, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, FROM THE FACE OF THE SERPENT (Rapture)!”

  6. Domestic Violence is the problem not firearms!

  7. Let’s go GUNS!!!! guns don’t make diff it could have been a knife or bat. The only one at fault here is……………… PEOPLE!!!

  8. I think you're gonna need to start calling it what it is, guns are a fetish. Americans see their children shot down in school, their brothers and sisters shot while shopping, they see this going on around them. And we don't act, i mean if you don't want to ban guns, at least ban the ones that are made for warfare. There's no legit applications for Joe Blow to need an assault rifle. It says it right there in the title, its for assault.

    More guns means more body count. With a gun you can commit an attrocity by flexing your finger.

  9. Damn this is sad and tragic!! If only I had some money my old idea was to open a big community center for ages 6-18 with mentors, tutors, computer lab 2, sports, help for kids behind in school, that way they are not out here in the streets getting in trouble. Now after hearing this I would add a domestic violence shelter. There’s so many empty schools here in Michigan just sitting for sale, they should be practically just giving the property away, but I know these greedy people want top dollar for buildings that have been sitting for years. I use to substitute teach, back in 2007 for a couple years when my hours were cut at Home Depot and some of these schools have been sitting closed since way back then, and that’s a shame. Smdh

  10. Lol amurikkka luvs guns so stop effin crying about it

  11. Well when you want to defund the police that’s what you get ABC, I mean giving criminals a free pass it’s like pretty much saying the criminals kill everybody and get away with it

  12. Kids these days can't take an ass whipping. They need to go get there guns because they are more about the perception of themselves.

  13. Domestic violence perpetrators should just kill themselves. Fucking cowards.

  14. He can't save everyone but should be praised for that attitude.

  15. Stolen guns… gang shooting; criminals and drug addicted people with guns. This is not a gun problem, these are mental illness and criminal problems.

  16. oh, move to Russia! we haven't any guns, here is safety!

  17. Stop blaming the gun its the people who hold the guns. I was in a 11 year abusive marriage. God took care of him. Jail, prison then his life. In no time did i even think of shooting him for beating me. I got help long road to recovery but God is good. You cant get well in a sick environment.

  18. No parent should have to bury their kid..No amount of condolences can sooth your heart.

  19. You know why because America takes crimes against women as a joke. Especially women of melanin. America doesn't care about women and they've already made that clear. Now and days, a man don't even go to jail for a vicious beating. Now they get a high five and stupid crash courses that doesn't work.

  20. This is such an epidemic in America. I'm Canadian and I have such a hard time wrapping my head around these tragedies.

  21. The vast majority of "gun" violence is being committed in the inner cities. The cities that have been under Democrat control for decades. Sorry, libs, this is on you, not on inanimate objects.

  22. Matthew 10:28- “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

  23. Why are people complaining when you allow republicans to get their way. Just take a gun and show them how it is used. Let them shake and understand fear.

  24. God forgive me as a victim of domestic violence, Im so thankful they did us the favor of killing themselves. This as well as mass shootings monthly make me despise guns. Thanks for not sucking up space in prison getting right with God. Meet your maker now.

  25. Mainstream media always looking all the time to make guns look bad.

  26. Keep selling guns to anyone and this will never end

  27. ABC should talk about the riots last year that caused millions of people to buy more guns and ammo.

  28. America is violence country

  29. The new wild west the culture promotes hand guns as the status to not go without. People kill not guns it only makes it easier and faster if there are guns available in any dispute.

  30. Yep. We have a serious crime problem in this country. Root causes are economic, drugs, mental illness, cultural desensitization to violence thru movies and music, and perhaps the most significant incompetent judges and DAs not putting violent criminals away for long periods of time. All these factors play a role.

  31. Obviously, a guy doesn't need a gun to act out his violent tendencies. Most available weapon seems to be a hand around the throat. How manly!

  32. People can't seem to wait to pick up these guns for their murder/suicide plan. Craziness. I'm thinking these types of relationships are extra codependent.

  33. My advice; Once they show you who they are …. BELIEVE THEM!!! For God's sake, BELIEVE them! They never change, they just escalate.

  34. Since Cryptocoins can be traded both inside and outside the digital currency environment,digital currencies are more than jst a way to pay for goods and services-they’re also a viable investment opportunity. in fact,Cryptocurrency has several advantages over fiat funds when it comes to investment opportunities,one of the biggest is that it isn’t subject to the same market conditions that traditional currncies are when it comes to foreign exchange rates.
    The best example of this is the state of the pound after the UK voted to leave the European Union. in the wake of the Brexit vote,the value of GBP began to plummet as investors responded to the realities of the UK leaving the EU and the financial instability this new situation created.However,the world of digital currency is insulated from such real world issues thanks to its very nature -its not tied to any single bank or government. in some cases,Cryptocoin value actually increased as investors realized that digital currencies like Bitcoin were unaffected by Brexit.Another important advantage of cryptocurrency is its potential for explosive growth.Bitcoin,for example,has demonstrated overall positive growth since its inception-as of August 1st,2017,Bitcoin was trading at more than $2500 per coin,whereas a year ago it was trading at around $600 per coin.Industry experts have long predicted that Bitcoin can and will increase its value even higher in the future,providing excellent potential for long-term growth.

  35. If there's psychological control or abuse… they'll eventually graduate to physical in a matter of time. Please run.

  36. The rich invest their money and spend what is left. The poor spend their money and invest what is left"

  37. Cowards, sorry excuses for fecal matter take the lives of their children and wives, and then the little girly men thinking the only way to solve their problem is with a gun because they're too much of a little b** to handle s*** like men. That's the sad truth.

  38. 3:45 – That guy had it coming…he weighed a good 290 and rammed the shooter after a running start. He got popped so now the rest of us don't have to deal with him on the road: youtu.be/8vaoim0hHkc
