  • Good points. But I still am sad that the real assault on our rights has not made it to the forefront. The 2ed amendment was made in support of the 1st amendment and no one seems to be talking about that...

  • Nice video. Only thing I'm disagreeing is with you disregarding a silenced .22 as being a non stealthy deadly weapon(only for squirrel hunting) when in fact statistics show that all homicides carried out throughout the United States (even though victim hasn't died at the scene but rather at the hospital), the deadliest caliber being the .22lr. other than that good info!

  • 1:54 I ask how did Americans allow the "restrictions" on machines guns? Or the 1968 gun control act lifted in it's entirely from Nazi Germany? The fact is that Americans don't love freedom, stand up for it, or even recognize it or when it is being trampled. The dumbing down is about complete.

  • In my honest opinion, guns are not the proplem in the U.S. Mental health issues, a general lack of available and affordable healthcare, (prescription) drug abuse and general poverty are your problems. But hey, if the politicians keep you focussed on guns and related items, you can all keep pretending there isn't a herd of elephants in the room.

  • The sophism in this video is on another level. Even muted the silencer battle with fake crowd background noise. Then used electric car accidents which are far easier to notice than a killing with a gun in fumbuck Missouri. These poor repugs are ruining our republican party. Get them to stop begging for handout jobs and make their own like the rest of us. Then hire someone else for protection and get your minds out of the wild west Hollywood garbage. Because here are some "facts" for you. If everyone carried and an active shooter situation started, we all draw our weapons thinking each other is the active shooter. Then the cops show up and shoot the rest of you. Then again that means the problem takes care of itself either way.
