  1. THANK YOU SIR FOR NOT LETTING GREED CONTROL YOU
    YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A HERO TO MILLIONS.

  2. Yep, it is the guns fault. 32 Mass Shootings during Obama/Biden years- What's next, ban automobiles. WATCHING THE MSM DEGRADES QUALITY OF LIFE

  3. Stopping the sale of guns in his stores didn't even make dent in gun violence.

  4. There is a reason that it is called The House of Representatives, they are not our leaders, they represent "We the People", and it is their job and their duty to follow the will of the people.  It is our duty as citizens to scrutinize everything that our Representatives do, and to remove from office any Representative who places their own will before that of the people they represent.

  5. Fact: Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year or 6,849
    every day. Most often, the gun is never fired and no blood (including the
    criminal’s) is shed.

    Fact: Property crime rates are dropping (especially burglaries). The
    chart shows the legal handgun supply in America (mainly in civilian hands)
    relative to the property crime rate.

    Fact: Every year 400,000  life-threatening violent crimes
    are prevented using firearms.

    Fact: 60% of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing
    crimes when they knew the victim was armed. 40% of convicted felons
    admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they thought the
    victim might be armed.

    Fact: Felons report that they avoid entering houses where people are
    at home because they fear being shot.

    Fact: 59% of the burglaries in Britain, which has tough gun control
    laws, are “hot burglaries” which are burglaries committed while the home
    is occupied by the owner/renter. By contrast, the U.S., with more lenient gun
    control laws, has a “hot burglary” rate of only 13%.

    Fact: Washington DC has essentially banned gun ownership since 1976 and
    has a murder rate of 56.9 per 100,000. Across the river in Arlington, Virginia,
    gun ownership is less restricted. There, the murder rate is just 1.6 per
    100,000, less than three percent of the Washington, DC rate.

    Fact: 26% of all retail businesses report keeping a gun on the
    premises for crime control.

    Fact: In 1982, Kennesaw, GA passed a law requiring heads of households
    to keep at least one firearm in the house. The residential burglary rate dropped
    89% the following year.

    Fact: A survey of felons revealed the following:

    74% of felons agreed that, “One reason
    burglars avoid houses when people are at home is that they fear being shot during
    the crime.”

    57% of felons polled agreed, “Criminals are
    more worried about meeting an armed victim than they are about running into the
    police.”

    Fact: 90% of all violent crimes in the U.S. do not involve firearms
    of any type.

    Fact: Even in crimes where the offender possessed a gun during the
    commission of the crime, 83% did not use or threaten to use the gun.

    Fact: Fewer than 1% of firearms will ever be used in the commission
    of a crime.

    Fact: Two-thirds of the people who die each year from gunfire are
    criminals being shot by other criminals.

    Fact: Cincinnati’s review of their gang problem revealed that 74% of
    homicides were committed by less than 1% of the population.

    Fact: 92% of gang murders are committed with guns. Gangs are
    responsible for between 48% and 90% of all violent crimes.

    Fact: Most gun crimes are gang related, and as such are big-city
    issues. In fact, if mayors in larger cities were more diligent about
    controlling gang warfare, state and nationwide gun violence rates would fall
    dramatically.

  6. To the idiots with the assault weapons, when is enough? When everyday we have three shootings? When there are more than 100 killed in a week? How about when enough kids get murdered in school? Or maybe your wife or kids get killed?
    WHAT IS THE NUMBER?

  7. I really respect this man. My dad was an NRA member for 3 decades. After watching the footage of Dana Loesch with the Parkland students and finding out Trump was in bed with the NRA, he cancelled his membership.

  8. How can so much ignorant, meaningless psycho-babble fit into one video?

    Anyone who believes that there even exists such a thing as an “assault-style” anything, congratulations, your mind is being controlled by corporate media conglomerate talking heads for profit.
    That makes you their puppet.
    Are you proud?

  9. To the CEO. I started buying from you. Your strength is admirable. We will support you.
