Democrats Hold Senate Floor To Call For Gun Reform | NBC News


I HAVE TWO GRANDSONS AND A
GRANDDAUGHTER THAT ARE NOW IN SCHOOL, AND THE FIRST NEW
QUESTION THAT WAS ASKED WHEN
BUYING THEIR BACKPACKS WAS, DO YOU WANT A BULLETPROOF BACKPACK?
DO YOU WANT A BULLETPROOF
BACKPACK WAS ONE OF THE QUESTIONS IN BUYING THEIR
WHY?
DOES ANYONE REALLY HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT WHEN THE SECOND
AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION
WAS WRITTEN, THEY ENVISIONED THE FEAR THAT WOULD GO THROUGH THE
MINDS OF CHILDREN WHO, AFTER
CONNECTICUT, WORRY THAT SOME SHOOTER WILL COME IN WITH A
SEMIAUTOMATIC WEAPON AND KILL
DOZENS OF KIDS IN ONE MOMENT? THAT’S THE REALITY OF GUN THEIRT
PORCH THEY COULD BE SHOT.
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. AMERICA IS BETTER THAN THIS.
THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE IN THIS
GREAT NATION WHO ARE DOING ALL THEY CAN TO TRY TO REDUCE THE
REP OF SHOOTINGS.
— THE EPIDEMIC OF SHOOTINGS. LAW ENFORCEMENT, PARENTS,
TEACHERS, THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY
AND PUBLIC OFFICIALS. BUT WHAT ARE WE DOING IN THE
UNITED STATES SENATE?
THE ANSWER IS NOTHING. AND TRAGICALLY PREVENTABLE GUN
VIOLENCE.
AFTER EACH OF THESE HEARTBREAKING EVENTS, FAMILIES
IN WASHINGTON STATE ASK ME WHY
DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING AND WHY CAN WE NOT STOP IT?
AND THE ANSWER IS THE SAME EVERY
TIME. WE CAN’T STOP IT BECAUSE
REPUBLICANS, LED BY LEADER
McCONNELL AND NOW PRESI MASS SHOOTINGS CAN AND HAVE
HAPPENED ALL OVER THIS NUN ALL
TYPES OF PLACES. GUN VIOLENCE IS BEING ABOUTING
THE NEW NORMAL IN EARTHQUAKE IN.
CERTAINLY IT HAS HAPPENED IN ARIZONA, MADAM PRESIDENT.
BUT WE DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN A
COUNTRY WHERE MASS SHOOTINGS OCCUR IN OUR SCHOOLS, OUR HOUSES
OF WORSHIP, OUR MOVIE THEATERS,
PLAYGROUNDS, STORES, OUR COMMUNITY GATHERINGS AND
FESTIVALS AND CONCERTS AND
NIGHTCLUBS AND ON YOUR CONGRESSES.
MADAM PRESIDENT, I AM COMMONSENE
I COULD POLL YOUR STATE FOR YOU. I CAN ASK EVERY N.R.A. MEMBER IN
AMERICA, DO YOU SUPPORT
UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS, BANNING LARGE MAGAZINES,
MILITARY-STYLE WEAPONS, LEAVE
ENEMY IN THE HANDS OF MILITARY MEMBERS, NOT SOMEONE WHO WALKS
INTO A STORE AND BUYS IT BECAUSE
HE WANTS TO SHOOT LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE IN MINUTES AND
SECONDS.
THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AMERICA TODAY.
AND I’D LIKE YOU TO LOOK UP
BECAUSE I HAVE TO SAY, THIS IS SOMETHING ALL OF US SHOULD BE
CARING ABOUT.
ESPECIALLY FROM ARIZONA, WHERE MY DEAR FRIEND GABBY GIVE D.
GABBY GIFFORDS WAS SHOT.
WHERE A YOUNG WOMAN WAS SHOT AND DIED.
IT IS NOT OKAY.
THE TIME FOR TURNING A BLIND EYE SAYING THERE IS NO ONE ELSE TO
DO THIS JOB BUT US.
THE HOUSE HAS DONE THEIR JOB. DONALD TRUMP CAN’T MAKE UP HIS
MIND ABOUT ANYTHING.
MAYBE HE’D LIKE US TO SEND IN THE BACKGROUND CHECKS TO HELP
HIM MAKE UP HIS MIND ABOUT WHAT
HE CAN DO FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BUT I CAN TELL YOU THIS.
OUR KIDS CAN’T DO THIS.
THEY’RE TOO BUSY. THEY ARE IN SCHOOL.
THEY’RE TRYING TO LEARN READING
AND TRYING TO LEARN MATH. THEY SHOULD NOT BE ASKED TO TRY
TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO STOP THESE
REPUBLICAN PARTY. FORGET THE MONEY FROM THE N.R.A.
FORGET ALL OF THE SPENDING WHICH
THEY MAKE. LET US NOT PUT A PRICE ON THE
LIVES OF 34,000 AMERICANS WHO
DIED JUST LAST YEAR ON TOP OF THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO DIED THE
YEAR BEFORE AND THE YEAR BEFORE.
AND THOSE WHO ARE PART OF A PREVENTIVE — PREVENTABLE
EPIDEMIC IN OUR COUNTRY FOR NEXT
YEAR AND THE YEAR AFTER AND THE COUNTRIES?
WHAT DIFFERENTIATES US FROM
OTHER INDUSTRIAL COUNTRIES? FOR ME, I SAY IT IS TIME FOR US
TON THIS FLOOR TO ENSURE THAT
THE N.R.A. STANDS FOR NATIONAL RELEVANT ANYMORE IN AMERICAN
POLITICS, IN SENATORIAL
POLITICS. THAT THE DOORS ARE OPEN, THAT
THE LEGISLATION CAN COME DOWN,
THAT WE CAN HAVE A FULL DEBATE

  1. How government can buy back gun? This country piles millions gun, each house hold have more then 3 guns, black street gun also piles up there too. 1 to shut down gun maker facility 2 shut down tobacco & Beer, wine company to reduce Health problem,but i don’t think government can cease these?

  2. Dems can never use real statistics and facts to win a debate, they always have to tell some made up "personal story" full of emotion.
    Facts>emotion.

  3. Unless Senator Stabenow was buying her kids backpacks at a gun shop, she was never asked about a bullet proof backpack… they certainly don't sell them at Pottery Barn or any other store where 99% of people buy their kids backpacks.

  4. Idaho and North Dakota (along with most other Red States) have some of the least restrictive gun laws in the US and the least amount of "gun violence". While the bulk of the gun related deaths all seem to come from Democrat run cities.
    Why doesn't NBC ever mention this fact ?

  5. AMERICANS HAVE GOT TO WATCH BRIDGETTE GABRIEL HERE ON YOUTUBE SPEAK ABOUT
    BERNIE SANDERS ENDORSER LINDA SARSOUR AND HER AGENDA TO RID AMERICA OF ITS CONSTITUTION AND ENACT SHARIA LAW IN AMERICA !

  6. Another citizen uses semi-auto to take down armed robbers (future Democrat voters)..

    Georgia homeowner returned fire against three would-be robbers early Monday morning, killing all three.

    Two 16-year-olds and a 15-year-old reportedly covered their faces and approached a Conyers, Georgia, residence around 4 a.m. Monday, according to the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office.

    The homeowner was outside along with another man and a woman with him at the residence. When one of the would-be robbers took out a gun and began firing, the homeowner shot back.

  7. Democrats voted against “red-flagging” known gang members, choosing
    instead to use the controversial gun control method to disarm rural
    Americans.

    Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) explained how his amendment that
    proposed applying a red-flag to anyone law enforcement labels a gang
    member was shut down by Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee.

    Since gang members make up 80% of gun homicides in the United States, it only makes sense to include them on the red-flag list.

  9. You can't legislate mental health.
    Even thinking you can indicates that you are out of touch with reality.
    Yelling at each other in Congress accomplished nothing.
    The biggest joke is that these rants are not done in full sessions.
    If you were there you would see an empty house.

  10. Gun reform is certainly an appalling joke against the US Constitution
    Beto.. an honest democrat told the truth when he talked about democrats
    Insisting upon Hitler style gun confiscation.

  11. I can't wait to see the democrats booted from the house in 2020 and all over the country as people wake up to who the real enemy is!
