  1. Note how the expert was cut off when he said that it was likely a criminal who was trying to avoid going to prison. Doesn't fit their anti gun narrative. What laws can they pass to keep criminals from getting guns. None

  2. Gins can also save lives. How about the girl with the baby who shot the guy when he broke in and tried to attack her and her baby? The gun saved her life.

  3. Seriously? there's not more people carrying in Texas? I would have done my best to run him off the road and shoot the F*** out of him

  4. All I heard was 21 innocent people shot at random and automatically knew it was a white guy. The only race of people that historically seems to have no respect for human life. Are y'all even human? Makes me wonder…

  5. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/6-teens-shot-at-end-of-high-school-football-game-in-alabama/2019/08/31/92bd001c-cbaf-11e9-9615-8f1a32962e04_story.html

  6. Another mass shooting in the United States? When are the American people going to realize that guns are evil and that guns only cause crime and that guns should be outlawed? Take away EVERYONE'S guns immediately. Wait…first take away violent video games. If it weren't for violent video games being played in the United States, there would be no mass shootings in the United States. Every other country in the world is peaceful and has no mass shootings. Only the United States is so violent because it doesn't have ENOUGH LAWS to make its own people safe. My "thoughts and prayers" are with all of the victims.

  7. No wonder why you always hiring ..all of sudden 20 plus vacant jobs available with all that shooting ..genious way into building the economy….jajaja…bola anormales estos grongos

  8. This should tell you all that trump and the Republicans is out of touch with reality look at Honk Kong they stand up for what they believe in it's time for the American people to stand up for what they believe in and get rid of trump and Moscow mitch

  9. Maybe,
    Too much bromide in bread.

    Too much lead and fluoride in water.

    Too much Ritalin.

    Too much narcissism.

    Too much belief.

  10. Oh look , another white male going on a mass shooting. Oh wait.. we can't talk about that. Its only blacks , Hispanic and other non white men.. who are bad. White men… just have bad days…

    Cut him some slack guys. Lets start a go fund me for his family lol

  11. CALL your representatives and DEMAND your 2nd Amendment Rights be fully restored and NOT further restricted or removed… "Shall NOT be INFRINGED" means just that.. you have the right to protect yourself don't let the government take that away from YOU…

  12. Here goes, the flood of people here to mock people who would like sensible gun laws in America defending their fetish items. Just remember 90% of Americans, bipartisan, would like universal background checks and other sensible gun laws. People who need to come to defend guns under stories like this are in the minority and are supported by Moscow Mitch and the corrupt NRA who take money from Russia to influence politicians to protect gun manufacturers.

  13. Oh my God- I`m happy that in Denmark only police are allowed to carry. Everybody else wielding a gun automaticly get killed – A very transparent system —

  14. What I saw this same angle in a Facebook video but better quality and the precise moment were the suspecte slams into the other vehicle and the brave officer that got out with gun in hand and put a stop to it.

  15. Don't you just love Americans, the way their happy to live like this, just to keep their guns. At the rate of over 40,000 victims killed each year by guns (from their own statistics), there won't be to many around in the future to buy them. Your safer going on holiday to Syria than there.

  16. USA should first disarm all civilians.from that point it will.be easier to monitor bad characters with Guns.
    I know many of you will come to attack me here.but came yo think of it….if guns are for your own security,what is the work.of your government….

    My heart goes to you

  17. Dear Nbc News… Facebook did it again, Banned me from posting anything for Thirty days.
    They certainly hate Conservatives there.
    So at the NBC NEWS site, there’s an article about the killer of Kate Steinly being set free, there was a poster before me, Saying this man was completely innocent, because of it was an accident.
    I responded in saying that he wasn’t innocent because he was already a five times deported and returning illegal , I said he was Criminal Illegal, because it’s absolutely illegal to be in America undocumented.
    Immediately I get a cute little pop up from Facebook stating that my posting goes against they’re hate speech policies. Really? So stating the truth on FB is hate speech? Unbelievable right.
    However when Mark Zuckerberg was on Capital Hill, He litter ly denied this. Why does the leftists hate actual truth so much?

  19. The only time they will say the race is when they're white. If they're black or Mexican, they'll just say their name. 😑

  20. With all these mentally ill people on the loose it's probably very irresponsible of us not to get rid of all lethal weapons at least until we can solve the maniac epidemic! Repeal the SECOND AMENDMENT NOW!

  21. another GREAT DAY should have been more THEIR LIEING POLICE TECHNIQUE IN THAT NECK OF THE WOODS (WE GOT A 911 CALL YOU WERE DOING SOMETHING WRONG THATS WHY WE PULLED YOU OVER) now as hes shooting innocent people ,they don't know why they stopped the man LIES but it counldnt have been abetter day and as sure of the air you breath there will be many many more the old saying cant more than true MAKE THE BED YOU LAY IN!!!!!!!!!!

  22. This is getting out of hands weres the so call police stations ? Or is it because it texas and there always right 😐

  23. The legacy of teaching your children to hate. Teach your children that all men are created equal and should be treated equally and do unto others, as you would want them to do unto you. #reapingwhatyousow.

  24. its only a mass shooting because a white person did it if it ant white it ant news F**KING racists.go to the hood with there blacks and these numbers ant sh*t.

  25. If he was a black Male they would shoot him on the spot since he's white they were try to catch him alive that why we have so many victims

  26. Can't wait for the US to be all blue and become one giant gun free zone, that way people will love each other because of no more guns. No more senseless mass deaths reported by mainstream news. Only deaths with a lot of sense.

  27. Just like the Dutch walk on wooden clogs. Good God-fearing American Christian white NRA members mass murder their fellow Americans. It is just their heritage.

  28. Why did these fuckbags add the Parkinson shake to the video? Is it only okay to show the video if it is shakey and vomiting inducing?

  29. This past week:
    1) Shot and killed = 12
    2) Shot and wounded = 48
    3) Total shootings = 60
    Where? Chicago…
    Why does the media NOT scream outrage and why don’t the soccer mommies and soy boys yell from the coffee shops? I think we all know why.

  30. Why am I not surprised that this kind of thing keep happening here in this country. It has nothing to do with video games, or Mental illness. It has to do with people who just are FCKNG HATEFUL AND EVIL. There need to be a LAW ON THE BOOKS THAT MAKES IT A MANDATORY SENTENCE FOR MASS SHOOTING AND IT SHOULD BE THE DEATH PENALTY NO EXCUSES OR EXCEPTIONS!

  31. Not breaking news . Violence needs to stop but it will not because there are cowards in the world . Just do what you can to spread love and compassion
