Trump criticized for ‘take the firearms first’ comments


ARE A DANGER TO THEMSELVES AND OTHERS, NOT GO AFTER LAW ABIDING CITIZENS.>>MARIA: THE CAMERAS WERE ROLLING. YOU SAY WHEN YOU’RE SITTING AROUND BATTING IDEAS, YOU THINK HE MADE A MISTAKE WHEN HE SAID THAT.>>YES. I DO NOT BELIEVE THE PRESIDENT WANTED TO THROW THE CONSTITUTION IN THE TRASH CONTAINER.>>MARIA: I WOULD THINK NOT.>>WHEN THE THOUGHTS ARE THOUGHT THERE, HE’S BEEN CONSISTENT AND VERY SERIOUS ABOUT BOTH FIGHTING REAL CRIME AND PROTECTING HONEST CITIZENS.>>DAGEN: TAKE THE GUNS FIRST, GO THROUGH DUE PROCESS SECOND, THOUGH. THAT WAS A QUOTE AND HE SAID IT ESSENTIALLY MORE THAN ONCE, GROVER. NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, HE SEEMED TO COME OUT AGAINST CONCEAL CARRY RECIPROCITY, WHICH THE REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN IN FAVOR OF AT LEAST IN THE SHORT RUN TO SEPARATE THAT FROM FIXING THE BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM AND ALSO EXPANDING BACKGROUND CHECKS AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL TO GUN SHOWS, MAKING A UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECK. WHY DO YOU THINK HE DID THAT AND DO YOU THINK HE’LL COME BACK AROUND ON PUSHING CONCEALED CARRY RECIPROCITY?>>HE MADE THAT COMMITMENT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHEN HE RAN FOR OFFICE AND HE’S BEEN VERY GOOD ABOUT BEING CONSISTENT, SAYING HE’S GOING TO KEEP HIS WORD WHEN HE RAN FOR OFFICE. THE ARGUMENT THAT — WE NEED RECIPROCITY SO WHEN YOU FLEW THROUGH NEW YORK, THEY CAN’T GET OFF THE PLANE AND ARREST YOU. THIS IS NOT IN CARRY-ON LUGGAGE, BUT IN CHECKED LUGGAGE. IT’S OUTRAGEOUS WHAT HAS HAPPENED. WE NEED TO PROTECT RIGHTS FOR ALL CITIZENS. THE PRESIDENT HAS MADE THAT COMMITMENT AND HE WILL KEEP THAT COMMITMENT.>>DAGEN: HE WAS ALSO — HE WAS FOR AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN YEARS AGO. HE WAS FOR IT.>>MARIA: I THINK THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO SHOW SO MUCH THAT HE’S A MODERATE AND WANTS TO A AFFECT CHANGE THAT THAT’S — I THINK THAT’S WHY — HE’S TRYING SO HARD TO COME ACROSS AS I’M HERE AND I’M NOT GOING TO BE HANDCUFFED BY ANY RULES THAT WERE IN PLACE BEFORE. I WANT TO LOOK AT THIS WITH A FRESH EYE.>>DAGEN: AS A MEMBER OF THE NRA, I WANT TO PUSH BACK ON WHAT WE HEARD FROM THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE ANYBODY WHO HAS LISTENED TO LIBERALS OVER THE YEARS, GROVER, THEY DON’T WANT TO JUST TAKE AWAY SEMIAUTOMATIC SPORTING RIFLES. THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY SEMIAUTOMATIC HANDGUNS IN THIS COUNTRY. HANDGUNS COMMIT — ARE INVOLVED IN MOST OF YOUR FIREARMS DEATHS IN THIS COUNTRY. THAT’S WHY PEOPLE WHO ARE PROPONENTS OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT, WHO HONOR IT, THAT’S WHY THEY’RE CONCERNED BY THIS.>>MARIA: ISN’T IT 80%, DAGEN?>>DAGEN: THE VAST MAJORITY OF FIREARM DEATHS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE ACTUALLY BY SUICIDE AND IT’S LESS THAN 1,000 HOMICIDES ARE COMMITTED OR FIREARM HOMICIDES ARE COMMITTED BY LONG GUNS.>>WE’VE SEEN THIS BEFORE. GROVER, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT TAXES, BUT DEFINITELY ON IMMIGRATION, WE’VE SEEN ALL OF THIS BEFORE. THE PRESIDENT MAKES A POINT LIKE THIS, IT’S AN INTERESTING DISCUSSION TO HAVE, BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH IT MATTERS IN A FORUM LIKE THIS BECAUSE WHATEVER LEGISLATION IS PUT FORWARD, AGAIN, EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED ON IMMIGRATION. IT WAS REALLY THE PRESIDENT STOOD IN THE WAY AT THE END OF THE DAY ON THE BIPARTISAN COMPROMISE, REVERSING HIMSELF FROM THE COMMENTS HE MADE IN THAT MEETING AND HE COULD REVERSE HIMSELF ON THE COMMENTS HE MADE YESTERDAY.>>MARIA: IT WAS KEVIN MCCARTHY WHO SAID WAIT, MR. PRESIDENT.>>HE TWEETS A LOT. YOU WANT TO LOOK AT THE RESULTS. I WONDER HOW THIS EASTBOUND I WONDER HOW THIS ENDTBOUND I WONDER HOW THIS ENDSBOUND I WONDER HOW THIS ENDS UUND I WONDER HOW THIS ENDS UP.D IS IT JUST FOCUSED ON KEEPING THE MENTALLY ILL FROM GUNS? WHAT COMES FROM A ALL THIS.>>THAT’S AN INTERESTING QUESTION. PEOPLE THAT HAVE MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES THAT MAKE THEM A DANGER TO THEMSELVES AND OTHERS, THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN NICS. IT WAS THE DEMOCRATS THAT KEPT IT OUT IN THE 1990s. NRA THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA. THE OTHER GUYS THOUGHT IT WAS STIGMA TIZING PEOPLE. THAT’S A DEMOCRAT PROBLEM. FOR DECADES WE LIVED WITH THEIR MISTAKE, THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION AND THE REPUBLICANS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WILLING TO CHANGE THAT AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO TELL YOU TO LOOK SOME PLACE ELSE. LET’S FIX THAT PROBLEM AND LET’S NOT HAVE GUN-FREE ZONES THAT MAKE STUDENTS A TARGET BECAUSE PARENTS AND ADMINISTRATORS DON’T HAVE THE ABILITY TO CARRY CONCEALED IN SCHOOLS TO MAKE THEM SAFER. WE WANT SAFER SCHOOLS. THE LEFT JUST WANTS GUN CONTROL. THAT’S WHY THE CONVERSATION IS SO ODD. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HOW TO MAKE SCHOOLS SAFE. AND THEY JUST WANT TO STEAL PEOPLE’S GUNS AND THEY’VE BEEN AT IT FOR DECADES. SO WE KIND OF KNOW WHERE THEY’RE GOING.>>MARIA: THAT’S THE CONVERSATION RIGHT NOW, GUN CONTROL, EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW HOW MANY TIMES THE SIGNALS AND THE SIGNS WERE THERE, PARTICULARLY ABOUT NIKOLAS CRUZ. AND IT WAS A MASSIVE FAILURE ON THE PART OF THE FBI AND THE LOCAL POLICE. WE CAN’T HAVE YOU ON WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT TAX REFORM AND GROWTH, GROVER. I’VE GOT TO ASK YOU –>>THAT’S WHAT I ASSUMED WE WERE TALKING ABOUT.>>MARIA: WE HAD TO GET INTO THE ISSUE OF THE DAY. LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT YOUR THOUGHTS ON GROWTH. COMPANIES ARE BUYING BACK THEIR STOCK AT A QUICKER PACE FOLLOWING THE CUT IN CORPORATE TAXES. SHARES BUYBACKS HAVE EXCEEDED $200 BILLION IN THE PAST THREE MONTHS. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT? LOOK AT THE ATLANTA FED GOING FROM 5.4% GROWTH, NOW THEY’RE AT 2.5% GROWTH THAT THEY’RE EXPECTING. WE ALSO SAW GDP NUMBER THAT CAME DOWN FROM THE THIRD QUARTER. NOW WE’RE TALKING ABOUT GROWTH OF 2.5%. HAS YOUR EXPECTATION CHANGED OF ECONOMIC GROWTH OF 4% IN 2018 AND WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW?>>I THINK WE’RE LOOKING VERY — MOVING FORWARD VERY WELL. THE REALLY GOOD NEWS IS THAT COMPANIES ARE DOING STOCK BUYBACKS. WHY DOES THAT MATTER? THAT MEANS THE COMPANY’S LOOKING TO BRING $1 BILLION BACK FROM OVERSEAS AND SAYING WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO SPEND $1 BILLION? BUYING A NEW COMPANY? STARTING A NEW LINE OF BUSINESS IF? OR IS OUR BUSINESS SO GOOD THAT WE WANT TO INVEST IN US. THAT MONEY DOESN’T DISA APPEAR. THEY BUY THE STOCKS FROM SOMEBODY. THE NEW INVESTOR REINVESTS THAT MONEY TO HIS OR HER HIGHEST INVEST VALUE. THE MONEY DOESN’T DISAPPEAR IN A BUYBACK. IT MOVES BETWEEN INVESTORS. IT’S A COMPANY SAYING WE THINK WE’RE THE BEST GAME IN TOWN. I WANT TO BE INVESTED IN A FIRM WHOSE MANAGEMENT THINKS THE BEST THING TO DO WITH $1 BILLION IS TO INVEST IT IN THEMSELVES BECAUSE WE THINK THE FUTURE LOOKS SO GOOD.>>THE JOURNAL STORY FROM THE NEWS SIDE OF OUR PAPER DID NOTE A LOT OF CEOS ALONG WITH PLANNING BUYBACKS ALSO TALKING ABOUT MORE CAPITAL INVESTMENT, GROVER, WHICH IS REALLY THAT’S GOING TO BE THE TEST OF THIS TAX REFORM, RIGHT, IS HIGHER INVESTMENT BECAUSE WE’RE REWARDING MORE INVESTMENT IN THE UNITED STATES.>>WE’RE BRINGING MORE CAPITAL IN FROM OVERSEAS AND MORE FROM THE UNITED STATES, PER WORKER THAT GIVES YOU PRODUCTIVITY INCREASES, THAT GIVES YOU HIGHER

  1. The "take firearms first" applies to people with schizophrenia, etc. not normal people. Why do people get upset over this?

  2. From what I have heard this was taken out of content. The portion that they are showing was only part of the conversation and he was actually talking about those that had mental illness. That they should take the guns and then give them their due process.

  3. A leader's desire to take guns away without due process, does sound authoritarian. And the majority of his base (& some Dems) strongly supports the 2nd Amendment. – Even if they don't own guns.

  4. HAHAHAHA! Conservatives lied and lied for years about Obama's gonna take your guns, then the same geniuses voted in the lunatic that is actually gonna do it. You try to open eyes with truth but too many Americans hold tight to the Corporate Fox News lies.

  5. Gun shows are forced to do background checks ! The media is bunch of liars . It’s the same process as going to Walmart . You have to fill out a application. The only reason people get in and out so quick from shows is because more people are working to take the telephone calls to do the background checks at nics. No such thing as loop holes . That’s made up. Also the nics background does there job correct. What nobody is telling the public is it’s the states job to update the feds about criminal Charges and activities. So point your finger and blame your state for not doing there job .

  6. Attention, all Americans. The long, horrible problem of mass shootings has been solved.  Instead of calling 911,  call the White House.  president Thump will arrive, un-armed, enter the crime scene and 'save thousands'.

  7. HEY PRESIDENT ASSHOLE,AND TRAITOR,wheres my girl friend at,SHE WENT TO YOUR FEMA CAMP TO TAKE A SHOWER ,and has been missing for TWO months now…..

  8. Seriously, Trump is not all there. It’s the Man first year as president and everyone is throwing the kitchen sink at him. He’s confused and doesn’t know what he’s doing or talking about. Lawsuit coming at him, Russia problem, Immigration problem, Economy, building the wall, come on people give the man a break. He needs some pussy, he’s not use to being that busy and not getting enough pussy. If you ask Trump the same question before getting some pussy and after getting pussy, hell have two different answer for you. A man cannot work efficiency without fucking pussy. That’s how God create men, don’t get mad at men, get mad at God.

  9. Hilary's book mocked Trump over fear of poisoning. Did Trump get cocky and begin trusting others? Could he have been given Scopolamine and coached into this gun grab. While CNN would obviously censor this comment, I am choosing Fox for MSM as belligerence is the general format. I am not trolling however. The devil's breath is a very real thing, and is one of many reasons why cartels inflict wrath upon pharmaceutical employees. They want this chemical gone, but these companies find excuses to propagate it. Oprah wanted it criminalized, so only she and her affiliates could have access. Mindful advocates of free trade and personal choice want it taken from existence.

  10. Like every amendment..the 2nd needs limitations.
    Now I'm not saying take away all of your guns …we just need common sense gun laws

  11. So we should execute the "Crazy People"? It`s like Dianne Feinstein`s Gun ban on ALL Veterans. Saying "PTSD Is an Iraqi Phenomenon". You can`t talk rationally with ANYONE so Irrational. Nor can you reason with an Attacker. There are Graveyards FULL of those likely to be Democrats who tried. Myself, I don`t like the odds.

  12. He likes all kind of torture he said he was going to wipe out North Korea he wants to proliferate more nuclear weapons, oh yeah he's a real moderate.

  13. I dont think Trump was thinking it through when he said this and it was mentioned in the context of referring to individuals that are deemed "dangerous" or mentally ill. So do I think trump is changing his mind on guns? No. Is trump perfect? No. He has always been a supporter of the 2nd amendment and constitution so I think this one particular statement doesnt make the case for me TRUMP MAGA

  14. I think that we already had one revolutionary war about the government seizing whatever they wanted to without due process. With the news every day of local police departments seizing peoples money and property for profit and now our president condoning the taking of peoples property without due process it seems that we are going to have to fight another revolutionary war to stop the corruption of our constitution. Trump promised us justice in dealing with the thugs like Hillery Clinton and it has been a year and no charges have been filed. Now he seems to be making noises like he is going to help the left with their pet gun control project. I think he needs to decide which side he is going to be on and stay there. The people who elected you are watching Trump.

  15. We need Cruze control. That punk needs a swift trial and execution. Make an example that shows monsters like this they're not in a video game.

  16. Really there 12 million ar15 and 100 million gun owners not like there going house to house to take them no trump for 2020

  17. HEY DUMB FUCKS, HE'S TALKING ABOUT REMOVING GUNS FROM PEOPLE WHO THREATEN TO DO HARM AND THOSE WITH MENTAL ISSUES!!!!!!!! GET THE FUCK OFF YOUTUBE FIND REAL DOCUMENTS AND UNEDITED DEBATES/INTERVIEWS ETC.

  18. 'take the firearms first'

    So … no Due Process before the law…no innocent before proven guilty ? The a sitting
    President would say something you would expect only in a 3rd world banana republic
    should be warning here….

  19. So Trump just speaks without thinking, then has to go back and re-think what he said? Sounds like a puppet to me. We all got duped.

  20. How about you take the $3000 that alllll these illegals get per month!!!!! And housing……as i struggle on disability…Unbelievably!!!!

  21. NOW THATS A DAMN WOMAN THERE!!!!!!!!! real men always will love real women….its nothing the left can do about it hahahahaha

  22. I don't know who, on FOx, is more full of shit – the Anchors or the panel Pundits who LIE LIE LIE LIE LIE!

  23. Mr Trump don't turn on your people.are you will be voted out with the rest of the traitors! We stood behind you now stand behind us !

  24. Cops need to have a mental evaluation first! If they take our guns then the cops can't have them ether! If not then this will be a police state and the people have lost total freedom!!

  25. I have been reading the "He lost my vote" comments are there are a lot of them. That must mean those who don't vote for Trump will be backing Andrew Cuomo in 2020. In a presidential race it always comes down to the lesser of two evils. Look at what the Toad has done with New York. His SAFE-Act could be nation-wide. By the time the Toad is done with the Second Amendment, gun shops will only be allowed to sell single shot firearms and bullets will be made of balsa wood.

  26. HANG OVOMIT, BILLYBONER & KILLERY! NOW WOULD BE VERY NICE! And these brain crippled LIBTURD DEMON-RATS idiots always blab the “I THINK THE PRESIDENT MEANS …….BLAH, BLAH, BLAH”! STFU and GO AWAY!

  27. I hope he's not because I vote for his ass if he's not gonna do what he promised I will not give him my vote for the next term my whole family vote for him 2016 all together is 11 member of my family that voted for him

  28. his right trump has common sense id luv to see all americans to lose there right to shoot each other lol theyl cry like babys not the guns lol

  29. Trump literally said he he wants to take your guns without due process and your still riding his dick. I'm shocked a guy raised in New York with a silver spoon in his mouth who basically flipped a coin to decide what party to run in doesn't care about your second amendment rights. He's donated to the Clinton campaign and attended their daughters wedding and you still believe him! You ain't no better than a Clinton supporter for being this blind. The sad truth is you deserve each other. An even sadder truth you think it's an attack on your party and your politics to speak against this disgrace.

  30. Just like Trump said Calm before storm, Trump will be the upcoming storm, Trump always means what he says and what he says he means, Trump just showed his true colors, when he says just take their guns and then we'll take them to court, Trump is already telling us we are already guilty by taking away our guns our constitution rights to bear arms, the cat is out of the bag. Do not trust this man make no mistake he does work for the Deep state. The Republicans and the Democratic work together hand in glove

  31. A WELL CONTROLLED IMMIGRATION PROSESS AND A WALL. WILL HELP STABLEIZE THE ECONOMY. AND THE STOCK MARKET. THIS IS A FACT. ONE OTHER THING THAT WILL STABLEIZE THE REST OF THE WORLD KILL GEORGE SORROS.

  32. This is exzactly why James Madison said in Fedralist Papers 78 paragraph 11 that…"No leglislative Act contrary to the Constitution is valid." Also in his Farewell address by George Washington (Goggle it) warned. "If the American people have a particular opinion in the distribution powers of the Constitution then let it be corrected by a Amendment as the Constitution disignates (Article 5) but let there not be ANY USURPATION, for in doing so even though it could be used as A INSTRUMENT OF GOOD ( Keeping guns from sick people) it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed." A President does not have any authority to make laws, article 1 section 1 says…ALL leglislative powers rezides with Congress. The dangers of these warnings have much to do with Presidents Washingtons other warning that he said, "Government is not eloquence it is not reason, it is Force and like Fire its a dangerous servant or a fearful master." BRING BACK OUR CONSTITUTION PLEASE. I did not vote for Trump to ignore the Constitution, he swore a oath to defend it. Respectfully Martin

  33. This comment shocked me…I voted for him, but I'm reconsidering my future support after hearing this from him…as a veteran and prior LEO, I am very pro second amendment…i refuse to vote for any gungrabbing politicians. Very disappointed in the President's recent comments!

  34. I'm sorry, but ALL of these journalists a deaf. Trump SPECIFICALLY said in cases like the Florida case (Nochloas Cruz), which included:
    He posted on Major social networks that he was going to shoot up the school.
    10 different people called law enforcement to report him.
    The school principal reported him to authorities.
    He had a history of mental disorders.

    Now tell again me how, someone who has DECLARED OVER AND OVER he is going to commit a school shooting deserves due process, and he's free to do the school shooting while this due process is going on?

    I'm 100% against gun control, but a special one-in-10-million case like this is different.

  35. It's so simple people if we have deturant against crime,, with armed citizens by having armed security in schools and homes banks and we're ever then the killing will be so suppressed, by taking away our deturant we loose

  36. See I told you all. Trumps no different from all the rest of the politicians. They are all liars, thieves, criminals and puppets.

  37. We know some times we say things that we don't think at times that are Right or wrong and we know Mr.Trump does do it don't mass with are second amendment bottom line . back off now before you start a war you cannot Win

  38. After 55 years of living I'm pretty sure there is not a soul on this planet that has not have a mental health issue and I can prove it and they want to take bets on it

  39. When a president. ADVOCATES. breaking laws. Or removing rights TAKE A CLOSER LOOK. SOMETHINGS. WRONG. AMERICA. REFUSES. TO. COMPLY

  40. no; he's a liar and and a back stabber. he's only afraid now he lost the firearms community meaning 2020 is down the tubes. is he going to bring back the the man in maryland that was killed during the red flag law he SUPORTED. ??????????????????? the dems were right; he's a dirt bag liar. he will never get my vote again!!! elect me; i'll support the 2nd; yeah right!!!!!! he doesn't know your innocent until proven guilty; tell me another one. cripes as bad as obamma was he at least knew that!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he want's to make things right ; put those cops in jail who killed that man supporting a unconstitutional law; at least a lot of sheriffs support the citizens of this country.

  41. Yes, the President made a HUGE mistake when he said, " Take the guns first." I hope he was just trolling the liberals, because that's how you lose your reelection before you even announce that you plan to run.

  42. Unfortunately Cruz was a screw up, why not pass harder gun control laws on states with homicide problems like Florida? Why not just pin point Florida, and leave the problem free gun control states alone? Embroiling, and enraging the public augments the problem, and does not solve it. The American public feels guns repel tyrannical governments as well as prevent foreign invasion. Unfortunately for humanity psychopaths do manage to take control of other countries.

  43. It was very clear to me wat he said, show your real colors,cant trust anyone from the wh,wat a sad thing,makes me sick,enough said

  44. Don't even think about this again, tons of us LOVE you and support you through every thing but this is WRONG support us in return please

  45. And trump is doing great in most things thru out our country i think but on the issue to bare arms he fails misserably an all the good will not change the bad that policy on arms will lose my vote fix it trump ,our rights are not negotiable

  46. Thought you claimed to be a big, big, BIG advocate for the second Amendment?!? Stop flip flopping. You are like a double minded man, spoke of in Scriptures, and that makes you unstable in all your ways.

  47. TRUMP! TRY IT BUB – TRY IT!!!!!!!! I WANT YOU TO COME GET MY GUNS LMFAOOOOOOO!!! COME GET THEM BUBBY!!! EVERYONE!!! L`E`A`V`E THE NRA!!!! JOIN THE GOA!!!!

  48. Maria, can you update these issues please? Referring to the 2 shootings now in Dayton and El Paso and the call for Red Flag Laws by the President and even Conservative law makers. It still seems to be take the guns then go to court.

  49. Trump supporters have to twist and bend logic so much to try to show he is really a conservative. In the process he is twisting the Republican Party closer to Democrats all the time.
