America’s Gun Culture Is Melting Down

America’s Gun Culture Is Melting Down


WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO THE “LATE
SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST STEPHEN COLBERT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( PIANO RIFF ) YOU CAN FEEL IT. I’M GLAD YOU GUYS HAVE GOT THE
ENERGY BECAUSE YOU CAN FEEL IT TON STREET TODAY. TOOTH TODAY IS A VERY ROUGH DAY,
SO LET’S START OFF WITH SOMETHING FROM THE SMILE FILE. THANKS TO TRUMP’S TRADE WAR
WITH CHINA, THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE LOST MORE
THAN 750 POINTS TODAY. AND THAT WAS THE SMILE FILE. ( LAUGHTER )
BECAUSE IT’S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE. ( LAUGHTER )
I’VE BEEN WATCHING THIS SHOW ON HBO– “CHERNOBYL”– DON’T TELL
ME HOW IT ENDS. ( LAUGHTER )
AND IN THE THING ABOUT THE NUCLEAR REACTOR BLOWING UP, OVER
AND OVER AGAIN IN IT, A SCIENTIST OR ENGINEER WILL TELL
A POLITICIAN, “HEY, WE’VE GOT A REAL PROBLEM HERE. THE NUCLEAR CORE IS GOING TO
MELTDOWN AND KILL EVERYONE.Ӗ BUT THE POLITICIANS REFUSE TO
BELIEVE IT BECAUSE ANY ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF FAILURE
THREATENS THEIR POSITION OF POWER,
AND THEIR POWER IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SAVING LIVES. WHAT’S THAT GOT TO DO WITH
ANYTHING? WELL —
( LAUGHTER ) — I THINK AT THIS POINT IT’S
CLEAR THAT AMERICA’S GUN CULTURE IS MELTING DOWN, BUT
THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS WOULD RATHER MAINTAIN THEIR
POWER THAN SAVE LIVES. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THE LATEST EVIDENCE IS THE TWO MASS SHOOTINGS IN LESS THAN 24
HOURS: ONE IN EL PASO, TEXAS, THE OTHER IN DAYTON, OHIO
MAKING FOUR MASS SHOOTINGS IN AMERICA LAST WEEK ALONE. 255 IN 2019 SO FAR. NOW, THERE ARE TWO BI-PARTISAN
BACKGROUND CHECK BILLS THAT HAVE PASSED THE HOUSE BUT ARE BEING
BLOCKED BY SENATE MAJORITY LEADER AND THIS MONTH’S
CENTERFOLD OF CORRUPTIONçó MONTHLY —
( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE )
— MITCH McCONNELL. ( BOOING )
THAT IS HIS MATING CALL. ( LAUGHTER )
MCONNELL’S HAD THE BILLS SINCE FEBRUARY, BUT WON’T TAKE ANY
ACTION. I’M SURE HE HAS HIS REASONS. LIKE THE $1.26 MILLION IN N.R.A. CONTRIBUTIONS. HE HAS RECEIVED. ( BOOING )
YOU CAN’T PUT A PRICE ON HUMAN LIFE, BUT IT DOESN’T STOP MITCH
FROM TRYING. ( LAUGHTER )
AFTER EVERY ONE OF THESE TRAGEDIES — EVERY TIME THIS
HAPPENS, EVERYBODY WANTS SENSIBLE GUN LEGISLATION AND
NOTHING HAPPENS. MAYBE IT’S TIME FOR “SENSELESS”
GUN LEGISLATION. ( LAUGHTER )
MAYBE TURN IN YOUR ASSAULT WEAPON AND IN EXCHANGE WE’LL
GIVE YOU A GIANT PORK SAUSAGE.>>OKAY? ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THAT MAKES NO SENSE. THAT IS SENSELESS. ( APPLAUSE )
GIVE ME YOUR GUN, YOU GET A GIANT PORK SAUSAGE. IT’S EVEN MORE FALK THAN YOUR
GUN AND IT’S ONLY GOING TO HURT YOU. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
THIS TIME IT’S NOT JUST GUNS, IT’S ALSO OVERT RACISM. WHEN A REPORTER ASKED
EL PASO-NATIVE BETO O’ROURKE IF THERE WAS ANYTHING THE PRESIDENT
COULD DO ABOUT THE SHOOTINGS, HE DID NOT HESITATE TO NAME THE
RADIOACTIVE CORE OF THIS MELTDOWN.>>IS THERE ANYTHING IN
YOUR MIND THAT THE PRESIDENT CAN DO NOW TO MAKE THIS ANY BETTER?>>WHAT DO YOU THINK? UMM, YOU KNOW THE (BLEEP) HE’S
BEEN SAYING. HE’S BEEN CALLING MEXICAN
IMMIGRANTS RAPISTS AND CRIMINALS. I DONK)
THE PRESS, WHAT THE (BLEEP)? HOLD ON A SECOND.ñ
YOU KNOW, IT’S THESE– IT’S THESE QUESTIONS THAT YOU KNOW
THE ANSWERS TO. I MEAN, CONNECT THE DOTS
ABOUT WHAT HE’S BEEN DOING IN THIS COUNTRY. HE’S NOT TOLERATING RACISM, HE’S
PROMOTING RACISM. HE’S NOT TOLERATING VIOLENCE,
HE’S INCITING RACISM AND VIOLENCE IN THIS COUNTRY. SO, YOU KNOW, I DON’T KNOW WHAT
KIND OF QUESTION THAT IS.>>STEPHEN: WELL SAID. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
WELL SAID. REFRESHING CANDOR. REFRESHING CANDOR. IT’S ALL WELL AND GOOD TO OFFER
THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS, BUT SOMETIMES YOU NEED SHOUTS AND
SWEARS. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
TODAY, TRUMP PUT ON HIS PRESIDENT PANTS AND ADDRESSED
THE TRAGEDIES IN EL PASO AND DAYTON– OR TRIED TO:
>>MAY GOD BLESS THE MEMORY OF THOSE WHO PERISHED IN TOLEDO.>>Stephen: OKAY. ALL RIGHT. WRONG CITY, BUT DON’T WORRY,
SIR. IT’S NOT LIKE OHIO’S THAT
IMPORTANT IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS. ( LAUGHTER )
JOE BIDEN BETTER HOPE IT’S NOT, BECAUSE LAST NIGHT, HE OFFERED
SYMPATHY FOR THE “TRAGIC EVENTS IN HOUSTON AND ALSO IN
MICHIGAN.” ( AUDIENCE REACTS )
HOLY TOLEDO. ( LAUGHTER )
LATER ON IN HIS ADDRESS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, TRUMP TOOK A STRONG
STAND:ñr>>IN ONE VOICE, OUR NATION MUST
CONDEMN RACISM, BIGOTRY, AND WHITE SUPREMACY.>>STEPHEN: I TRY MY BEST EVERY
NIGHT, BUT YOU’RE STILL IN OFFICE. ( LAUGHTER )
( PIANO RIFF ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
SO — ( CHEERING )
SO WHO’S TO BLAME FOR THESE SHOOTINGS? TRUMP HAD A, LET’S SAY, THOUGHT:
>>WE MUST STOP THE GLORIFICATION OF VIOLENCE IN OUR
SOCIETY. THIS INCLUDES THE GRUESOMEE
AND GRISLY VIDEO GAMES THAT ARE NOW COMMONPLACE.>>STEPHEN: FIRST OF ALL,
THERE’S NO LINK BETWEEN VIDEO GAMES AND SHOOTINGS. EVERY COUNTRY HAS VIDEO GAMES. BUT THESE TRAGEDIES ONLY HAPPEN
HERE. SECONDLY, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR
TRUMP TRY TO NAME A SINGLE VIDEO GAME. ( LAUGHTER )
(AS TRUMP) “THESE VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES:
‘TETRIS-MUNCH,’ ‘GHOST MARIO,’ ‘GRAND THEFT PONG.'”
( LAUGHTER ) THEN, IN HIS OWN WAY, TRUMP
TRIED TO HEAL A NATION.>>NOW IS THE TIME TO SET
DESTRUCTIVE PARTISANSHIP ASIDE, SO DESTRUCTIVE, AND FIND THE
COURAGE TO ANSWER HATRED WITH UNITY, DEVOTION, AND LOVE.>>STEPHEN: (AS TRUMP)
“YES, WE MUST SET ASIDE PARTISAN BICKERING OVER WHO FIRED UP THE
WHITE NATIONALISTS IN OUR COUNTRY, AND COME TOGETHER AS
ONE: (SINGING TO “KUMBAYA”)
♪ SEND HER BACK, MY LORD SEND HER BACK
♪ SOMEONE’S DIFFERENT, LORD SEND HER BACK
♪ I’M NOT RACIST LORD —
( APPLAUSE ) NOT EVERYONE WAS HEEDING TRUMP’S
CALL TO UNITY. LIKE CORY BOOKER, WHO HEARD
TRUMP’S SPEECH AND TEXTED THIS TO HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER, WHO
THEN TWEETED IT: “LISTENING TO THE PRESIDENT. SUCH A BULL (BLEEP) SOUP OF
INEFFECTIVE WORDS.” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
OKAY,ENING I SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE. OKAY. I SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE. SO BETO SWEARS, NOW EVERYONE
JUMPS ON THE CURSE WAGON. THE NEXT DEBATE IS GOING TO BE
FUN. (AS BOOKER)
“Y’KNOW, MR. VICE PRESIDENT, THEY HAVE A SAYING IN MY
COMMUNITY: YOU’RE DIPPING YOUR SPOON IN THE BULL (BLEEP) SOUP
AND YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW THE TASTE OF ASS CROUTONS!”
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
>>Jon: IS THAT A SAYING? I HAVEN’T HEARD THAT ONE.>>Stephen: TRUMP DEFENDED
GUNS ON CAMERA, BUT ON TWITTER, HE WAS MORE OPEN
TO COMPROMISE: “REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS MUST
COME TOGETHER AND GET STRONG BACKGROUND CHECKS, PERHAPS
MARRYING DOT, DOT, DOT, DOT DOT, DOT, DOT, DOT THIS
LEGISLATION WITH DESPERATELY NEEDED IMMIGRATION REFORM. WE MUST HAVE SOMETHING GOOD, IF
NOT GREAT, COME OUT OF THESE TWO TRAGIC EVENTS!”
(AS TRUMP) “AND IF I KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT
MARRYING, IT IS ALWAYS A TRAGIC EVENT.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) BUT LISTEN TO WHAT HE’S DOING —
( APPLAUSE ) — LISTEN TO WHAT HE’S TRYING TO
DO HERE, GUN CONTROL AND IMMIGRATION
REFORM HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER, AND THEY’RE THE TWO
HARDEST THINGS TO DO IN WASHINGTON, SO NATURALLY HE
WANTS TO COMBINE THEM. (AS TRUMP)
“CONGRESS HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO EAT FIRE OR LEVITATE. ( LAUGHTER )
SO, THEY SHOULD TRY TO DO THEM BOTH AT THE SAME TIME. ( LAUGHTER )
MIGHT MAKE IT EASIER TO LEVITATE WITH FLAMES SHOOTING OUT THEIR
BUTTS.” ( LAUGHTER )
TRUMP WAS ABLE TO FIND AT LEAST ONE PERSON TO DEFEND HIM, ACTING
CHIEF OF STAFF MICK MULVANEY, SEEN HERE EXPLAINING HOW TALL A
PILE OF LIES HE’S ABOUT TO SPEW. ( LAUGHTER )
MULVANEY WENT ON THE SUNDAY SHOWS AND HE POINTED OUT THAT
GUN VIOLENCE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GUNS.>>WE’VE HAD GUNS IN THIS
COUNTRY FOR– FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS. WE HAVEN’T HAD THIS UNTIL
RECENTLY AND WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHY.>>STEPHEN: OH, I KNOW WHY. IT’S BECAUSE THOSE GUNS WE HAD
HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO WERE SLOWER AND LESS POWERFUL. IT’S WHY, DURING THE
REVOLUTIONARY WAR, THE BRITISH SOLDIERS VOLUNTEERED TO WEAR
BRIGHT RED COATS AND STAND IN A STRAIGHT LINE! (AS COLONIAL BRITISH SOLDIER)
“WOULD YOU MIND KILLING US MORE QUICKLY? IT’S NEARLY TEA TIME AND WE HAVE
TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN IN THE CRIMEA.” ( LAUGHTER )
>>Jon: WOW!>>Stephen: THE CRIMEA! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
MULVANEY’S MAIN ARGUMENT: EVERYONE IS TO BLAME EXCEPT HIS
BOSS.>>THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM. THERE’S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. BUT THEY ARE SICK, SICK PEOPLE. AND THE PRESIDENT KNOWS THAT. AGAIN, JON, I DON’T THINK IT’S
FAIR TO TRY AND LAY THIS AT THE FEET OF THE PRESIDENT.>>STEPHEN: IT’S TRUE. YOU CAN’T LAY THIS AT THE FEET
OF THE PRESIDENT, ‘CAUSE THAT’S WHERE MICK MULVANEY SLEEPS. ( LAUGHTER )
( PIANO RIFF ) WE’VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU
TONIGHT. STAR OF HBO’S “SUCCESSION” BRIAN
COX IS HERE, BUT WHEN WE RETURN, ANOTHER TRUMP APPOINTMENT BITESt
THE DUST. STICK AROUND. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING )

100 thoughts on “America’s Gun Culture Is Melting Down

  1. America, it’s now been almost 3 weeks since these shootings have happened. And what has been done? Nothing.

    You have free speech, you have a democracy, fucking get out there and make changes happen. Join protests, demand change, educate your children and fellow humans on gun safety.

    Look at Hong Kong, they have a very serious problem which they are not letting the world stop thinking about, they have been protesting for 11 weeks…

  2. Cant believe people laugh and applaud this idiot. Want our guns , come try and take them. Beta males like him will never be taken seriously

  3. Colbert, o rouke, everything they say and stand for has done nothing but grow gun gun culture. More of us are armed and ready now than ever before.

  4. Thank you for calling out the video game BS. Literally millions of people play "violent" video games (and very violent TV and Movies) and we don't kill people.

  5. Stephen Colbert works for the Globalists, One World Government Elites, and that is why he wants guns banned. For the communist to take over, they first must unarmed the population. By you people supporting Stephen Colbert, you helping America transfer into a new country.
    1. Communist. 2. Luciferian. 3. A chip planted in all of us and under the control of the banks.
    (Funny how the Christian Bible warned us about this)

  6. American's need to look at things from a more statistical perspective in order to find a remedy for this situation. Someone could easily cause much more destruction and heartbreak with a gallon of gasoline and a match. I know it is horrible to read about this kind of behavior in America and it is only getting worse, but there are much more pressing matters at hand in the world right now. Just the fact that gun control has become a political counter-measure instead of serious problem blows my mind. These politics don't give a shit about a bunch of kids getting shot in a school they only care if the media reports them feeling "sad" they don't give a fuck about you America.
    Guns and ammo are one of our economic staples that's what America does well we make guns and sell them to everyone foreign and domestic, been doing it for years… hell that's how we have toppled dictatorships, but if you think taking guns away from people is going to solve the overflow of hate in our country right now well then I guess we are all screwed anyways.

  7. By the way. How does Stephen Colbert feel now about his sweetheart CBS,
    now that they are calling one of the MAIN DONORS of the NRA, of Climate
    Change Denial, of Segregationism and MULTIPLE GENOCIDE against black
    communities, by dumping gigatons of toxic waste in their back yard, how
    does Stephen feel about CBS now PRAISING the BEAST IN THE FLESH as a P H
    I L A N T R O P I S T?
    Instead Stephen would rather throw a jewish carpenter under the bus…

  8. America is like a stubborn teenager that doesn't learn from its mistakes. Its not the peoples fault its those crusty old ass-holes in congress that just don't seem to give a shit. I wonder if their sons and daughters, wife's and husbands got slain in the streets they would actually realise that guns do indeed kill people. Most other countries, even third world ones understand this basic concept!

  9. thank you so much America for showing us what democracy is…
    you voted in an old sick solipsistic sexist, xenophobic, racist, lying conman who thought he was getting to play with a 4 piece jigsaw… turned out to be a 10,000 piece jigsaw.
    didnt you look into his character before you voted… the clues were there … SHAME ON YOU.

    BEING RICH IS NOT QUALIFICATION ENOUGH TO RUN THE COUNTRY… not even his money, the bank's !!

  10. Hey Colbert. You don't like immigration reform? Why don't you and all your friends in Hollywood take the illegals in your home?

  11. I like when people use their power of being heard for something good… Like he could make this entertaining by talkin about the latest movie releases and all.. which is his job . But naah.. he decided to say this

  12. The problem is not "these semi-automatic rifles on the streets" It is mental health. The founding fathers were intelligent men and they used the word "arms" to define the second amendment for a reason because it was crucial for the society they created to allow the people to be more powerful than the government. If they were alive today they would mandate that all able-bodied patriots have their own automatic rifle, ammunition, and basic body armor. "The easiest way to enslave a people is to take their weapons." But we live in a crazy world now where a few have ruined it for the many, we really do need much more funding going towards mental health services and to improve/ update background check processes and require classes for people that want to carry or own a firearm.

  13. That homicidal haters and the mentally ill also lived among the Americans back then no doubt played a big part in their decision to introduce the 2nd. Amendment to the Constitution.

  14. Hey Colbert I'm going out to target practice on my place. Been doing this since I was a kid. Want to come n hold a target for me?

  15. As a Canadian it needs to be said, this is not just an American problem this is a world problem if we want to see change we have to demand it from every corner of the world. As Pierre Trudeau once said . "Living Next To America is like sleeping next to an elephant it doesn't matter if it likes you but falls asleep and rolls over you you're still dead" so maybe if Little Junior Trudeau stopped kissing Trump's ass like so many other politicians he would somehow realize he's wrong.

  16. Trump looks like he needs piss. Guess trying to figure out what those big words he’s attempting to read are is playing havoc with his bladder… or his little mind

  17. Stephen needs to see the hilarity in US mass shootings. His routine might improve and maybe his audience will lighten up

  18. you know what?
    i think i can give you an advice, even if it might sound not so orthodox (at all, actually): try to shoot some of those DC politicians who are pro gun legislation, see how fast will the gun legislation is going to change after that 😉
    now, leaving the joke aside, Stephen, you're doing a great job, i totally love your show, your guests and the humor you all have, despite the political situation from US and that jerk who's leading the country.
    greetings and love from Romania 😉

  19. wow now I remember why i stopped watching these shows. they went from funny comedy to political bashing pushing agendas. I know you have to stay on the band wagon or you'll loose your show. oh wait, you were just bashing politicians for the same thing. your getting paid and you do what you need to to keep your position with no reguard on what american rights you stomp on.

  20. Today it is September 6 and we had no mass shooting that I could find, can we talk about gun laws today or should we keep sending thoughts and prayers ? Cause at this rate, we have a mass shooting every day and we apparently are not suppose to argue for gun control when there are mass shootings. Fuck logic.

  21. "This is our fucking city, and no one is going to dictate our freedom" – David Ortiz, first home game at Fenway after the Boston Marathon Bombings.

  22. 6 persons died due to e-cigarettes, and now Trump wants to ban those… I guess that for him the only good smoke comes from a gun barrell.

  23. "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

    – Benjamin Franklin

  24. Most of the American economy depends on weapons export and sale.
    America needs to imply gun laws just strict enough to stop gun crimes but at the same time keeping the economy stable.
    And that is a near to impossible task for a simple minded racist like Donald Trump.

  25. Hi there. . I'm not into politics or any of this other stuff publicly. . . But what I will say is that the only people that new sensible gun laws would affect are THE AWSOME LAW ABIDING CITIZENS that would ACTUALLY follow them. Not the people who have them illegally. Does anyone really think they will turn them in. . . Not toention, we really don't know how many illegally obtained firearms, are actually on the streets. .

  26. Late Night Cucks reading their teleprompters and collecting a check. They are each bribed by those who profit by disarming Americans and raising taxes.
    So these cucks will only say gun….. And never speak of the World History of Tyranny and Democide Hollywood and News Networks are paid cucks !!!!!

  27. I'm supposed to have the right to bear arms. However, if I need a background check to buy a gun and a permit to carry one, I don't have a right to bear arms. That's called asking permission.The government works for me, not the other way around, and they don't have permission to violate my rights. Fuck Beto O'Rourke.

  28. The only thing standing between us and slavery to the corporate oligarchs are the guns we own. Short of that you may as well just put the shackle's on.

  29. I like that Beto swears. It means he doesn't care what people think about him and he's true. I dont think I would mind him as a president I think.

  30. "Any acknowledgement of failure threatens their position of power, and their power is more important than saving any lives!" – Stephen Colbert

  31. Okay, there is no such thing as racism.

    The advent of australia back in the late 1600s was done by bad people and thats it.

    Watch the mandalorian.

  32. Hey America Some good, news there was not a mass shooting in the past 24 hours. There were dozens of people shot, hundreds overdosed, hundreds died from preventable medical conditions, dozens died from medical negligence (not gross negligence that is sueable, i wonder who comes up with the threshold? victims or big pharma guess we will never know).
    Further Good news you can still buy weapons privately without background checks so if you have a history of mental illness and violence your right to murder children in the street will not be impinged, so next time you get cold fries from Mcdonalds you can exercise your god given rights to murder innocents.

  33. "I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery." – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, January 30, 1787

    "What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms." – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787

    "To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them." – George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788

    Thank God for the 2nd Amendment. We are witnessing politicians and "media" influences which are the very reason for its existence. Today's Democratic Party and its MSM support is a clear and present danger to this Republic……

  34. This nonsense spreads like a virus. The zionists are hard at work propagandizing the clueless sheeple. Take our guns and the bad guys will go away! Fact, where there are no gun zones there is MORE crime and more killing usually in the hood where the gangsta wanna-be's are shooting each other, hence the bogus gun statistics. It isn't the wackadoos shooting up schools, read Bill Cooper's book Behold a pale horse, it's all there back in 1990 when he published. He was military naval intelligence and papers crossed his desk detailing the CIA plan to "inculcate" the idea of mass shooting into the drugged minds of mental patients and it works to this day. These media scumbag puppets and equally clueless "candidates" for office read their script and have no idea what they're talking about. Where We The People are armed, crime PLUMMETS, the bad guys live in fear and go to the gun free zones to do their crimes. When the drugged patsies fail to shoot up the schools and public places the CIA just sends in the black ops guys and tell the paid off local yokel police to stand down for a few hours. Here's some really cool military weapons and swat stuff and maybe a really cool tank or two boys, we'll take it from here says the FBI, ATF, CIA stooges. Stand by your Oaths you oafs and defend the Constitution of The United States of America.

  35. Actually there are mass shootings elsewhere. All the world sees news about mass shootings in America so nutcases everywhere get inspired. That said tighter gun laws actually do work in making it less of an issue elsewhere. Most of these people are not thinking that clearly, so even though they plan their attacks making getting the "good" guns harder does make them less effective at killing people before the police arrive. In some cases people have even used knives as substitute, which while still lethal is much easier for the police or even civilians to deal with.
    This is probably something more Americans should be aware of. Other countries have tightened their laws in response to mass shootings in the past and the results that gave them are available.
    Also, do people really not know that people playing video games are LESS likely to commit crimes? Apparently the time you "waste" playing games means you have less time to get involved in crime. Doesn't make video games good for you, especially now that major publishers have built their business strategy around turning kids into gambling addicts but violence in video games really is not what you should worry about. There are bigger issues around violence than games and bigger issues with gaming than violence.

  36. Yes he has a point. The shootings are not because of Trump. But it's because of his lack of doing something about it, that it continues. That we can lay by his feet and ask him wtf he thinks he's doing.

  37. My Second Amendment rights should NEVER be infringed!!!! Parents with troubled kids should lock up their guns. Why should the responsible majority pay for the mentally unstable minority? Cars kill more people than guns do. Are you coming for our cars too? Those that commit these mass killings will find other ways to unleash their unstable hatred to hurt others.
    Perhaps if more responsible people were allowed to carry, these unstable people could be taken out quicker and reduce the casualties their hatred produces. When criminals and the sick know there is a chance they will get fired upon, they think twice. That's why they have armed security at banks etc…

  38. 5:47 Other countries have those same video games, movies, all the rest of it. Yet it is the USA that has the mass killings.

    What’s different about the USA? The guns.

  39. ….. im sure you wouldn’t want that 12 yr old you t0rtur3d to have a gun, would you Steven. Your times coming my friend, Trump is gonna get you… 😂

  40. Guns in the hands of a bunch of pussies who can't stand up for themselves is the real problem. And guns in the hands of people who can't let go of the past and blame racism for everything is the problem too.

  41. Lots of good arguments in favor of gun control, and the only argument against it that I've really heard is "But it's a conditional right! Has been since the beginning!"

    Yeah, but that was back when guns had one shot at a time and took about a minute to reload, not .5 seconds after firing 30 bullets in the same amount of time.

  42. "any acknowledgment of failure threatens their position of power and their power is more important than saving any lives." Damn

  43. My favorite tv show is "A-Team". TONS of guns and explosions per episode. Cars flipping over from explosions or crashing thru walls, Mr. T punching people HARD or flipping them over his head. AND YET! This 5 season show only had a handful of confirmed deaths. I can only think of 3 off the top of my head.
    Is this show violent? Arguably yes. Does it make me want to commit violence. No. I hate guns and wish the NRA never existed.
    Now Trump on the other hand, makes me want to roll a tank over him, set him on fire, and toss what's left into a pit of wolverines. #Impeachment

  44. The laws are too lenient for people who shot guns on crowded streets. And kill innocent people. Just for shooting someone and they do not die the shooter should be jailed for a minimum of ,25 years in jail without parole. The penalty for a shooting crime should be much higher. Shootings in night Clubs and on the street and public places should be to given a longer sentence. If someone died it should be twice ,25 years people would not be eager to pull the trigger so carelessly..

  45. I love these critical thinkers! Unplug from media hype. Listen to real stories from real people about the 2nd amendment

    https://youtu.be/iypvggFd2FY

  46. Beto is a wannabe Hispanic, a full fledged criminal, an statistics prove nothing to support that gun control helps 🙂 CHANGE MY MIND

  47. Without proper reasearch in regards to military, balistics and history, your comments are nonsense when you speak upon the British wearing red.

  48. Beto is a dreamer colbert is a sellout pushing for more government control. I told beto that if he came to my house i would give him a gun. A gun i don't like or use. But still, a gun . I would give it to him just for having the balls enough to knock on my door. Then i would tell him to get off my property or I'm coming outside to kick his girly punk ass continuously until it is off my property. And colbert why dont you take your pork sausage and put it in your ass next to your balls, oh wait those are in your wifes purse. Take em back and be a man again while you still can. And not being welcome in El Paso is a huge blessing.

  49. Send shooters with the highest grade assult rifles to the Mitch's family house and all Trump's properties and see if they would still block the background checks. Serve them right…!!!
