  1. "States with more permissive gun laws have more mass shootings" so Alaska Montana Idaho have more mass shootings than California & New York. Maybe you should actually research and study before you quote it.

  2. 👁🦅👁It’s informative nonetheless for those who live in #these #states, and for those who #are #unaware #of #what’s #allow. Thank you 🙏

  3. Its texas. People there already carry guns on them at all times. How much easier could you make it? Have a caddie run after you with golf bag filled with shotguns? Sheesh.

  4. A lawyer needs to talk to families who have been affected by gun violence and argue those companies are destroying families.

  5. USA IS ADICT TO GUNS. DROGS.AND VIOLENCE I FORGET SOMETHING??? WOOD FROM AMAZONE TO DECORATE BIG MANSIONS ON BASE CASING WHO CARE THE FIRES??

  6. The left wants everyone to be a helpless victim everytime a mass shooting happens with no way to defend ourselves, whereas these TX handgun laws give people the opportunity to stop a crazy mass shootings, and save lives. Guns are here to stay regardless of laws. The more good people that are armed the less likely the evil cowards will shoot the place up.

  7. She is complaining about 16 year olds being able to carry in Vermont, but Vermont has the third lowest violent crime rates in the country. California which has some of the highest violent crime rates has the strictest gun laws in the nation (and STILL HAS mass shootings). Also let's remember that the Oklahoma city bombing killed 168 people and was done with a truck and a few bags of fertilizer.

  8. Yet another mass shooting, seems like trying to debate this issue is a waste of energy with people who lawfully have fire arms versus those who "go off" and openly shoot innocent people. Stories of pain and loss are irrelevant..yet now it is even easier to by a gun in the state of Texas..hmmm.

  9. Speaking from experience of having a deranged landlord break into my apartment waving a gun in my face and law enforcement not doing anything about it because a landlord can do whatever they want on there property including forbidding you to own weapons to protect yourself in your own apartment these new guns laws are a very good thing! But once again the evil propaganda machine wants to brainwash more people into thinking law abiding citizen firearm ownership is a bad thing.

  10. Well that's a good law . Because obviously the bad guys want "soft targets" . What anti-gunners DON'T get is this is a deterrent !!
