  1. what i wish is the following : That one of these cunts loses at least 2 fam members in a massive shooting …. xD that would make my day really …

  2. Let me think about that……….
    Russian money, $6 million mansion to protect Wayne, $300k shopping spree in Beverly Hills.
    'MURICA!

  3. 2:42. And that point, John Oliver was a better person than me. I would have pointed a finger and said "Even though I'm making a satirical interview here for a comedy show, I'm going to be serious. You're a fucking idiot who shouldn't be allowed to own a plastic daisy bb gun. You're a fucking moron"

  4. Where there is a will, but I there is a solution. No excuse no bs it's simple as that. But if it's about money ok yeah that's a whole another thing. But lives does not matter. And do not refer to any skin color but all types of skin color.

  5. So "Whoop-de-doo" is an american word for "I have no good argument for you but I'm payed to do it anyway, maybe I can fall and fake a stroke, but wait, my brain can do it!" Such a fascinating and supple language.

  6. ‘Mass shootings are rare any how’ as of august 2019 in the last six months there are over 250 recorded mass shootings this year australia: another 0

  7. Well actually Australia's gun violence was going down and down already
    But although i will agree it has stopped gun violence in australia by alot i dont think it was necassary with how many things can kill people there

  8. Some gun laws make sense like the FBI background check, being over 18 to buy a gun, and can't buy a gun if you are a criminal, mentally unstable, addicted to drugs, major anger issues, etc. But most of our gun laws do nothing to prevent crime and just hinder law-abiding citizens. At this point no new guns laws would do anything about our "gun problem" here in America. We have many problems to fix like poverty and the lack of education, once those are fixed we would be much safer.

  9. right off the bat this persons an asshole a fucking asshole . not john, the shit head gun fucking nut and every one that thinks they NEED a gun

  10. Do you geniuses on here think Jews would have loaded up in the cattle cars so easily if Hitler hadn’t taken their guns??? You idiots.

  11. Not an American
    Not gonna throw any suggestions
    But why do all the pro gun people have crazy eyes🙄

    Also at 4:45 thats my point 😂

  12. Mass shootings are rare…as rare as finding a good pizza parlor in NYC. Stupid fuck. Its 2019 and you are a total fuktard.

  13. You dont need a pool to drown..you can drown in two inches of water in a bucket and yes it has killed many toddlers over the years. If you dont think a few dead toddlers is a big deal..ask their family if it is.

  14. American was born from a revolution and born from weapons to harm the man, but Australia was literally born off the criminals of Europe and the UK, so the arguements makes no fucking sense at all. Theres just too much money in fire arms so these NRA and politicians will not back down.

  15. Crime rates in Australia after gun control? https://crimeresearch.org/2016/04/murder-and-homicide-rates-before-and-after-gun-bans/

  16. I can't tell if they're deleting comments pointing out the fallacies regarding the Australian crime rate and gun buy back, or if the comment section is actually full of retarded people

  17. according to the widely accepted definition of a mass shooting, "the deaths of four people, excluding the gunman, in a single event." the last mass shooting in Australia was June 4, 2019. This fact contradicts the statement that there have been no mass shootings since 1996

  18. We should repeal all the bill of rights…..  I TRUST THE GOVERNMENT.     HOMOCIDE WITH GUNS IN THE US HAVE DECLINE WITH GUNS.

  19. He was speaking metaphorically (I can't possibly believe he was actually thinking Australia is in another planet, so we're going with that), and his metaphor is a valid point: something working in one country does not guarantee it will work in another. Different countries have different cultural and social realities.
    Proof: a communist revolution worked in Russia, a communist revolution failed in Germany.

  20. Anybody that believes this gun control BS needs to put a sign in their front yard that reads, "No guns here at my House!" Why do you want to control my behavior. Lead by example, you fucking idiots!

  21. Anybody that believes this gun control BS needs to put a sign in their front yard that reads, "No guns here at my House!" Why do you want to control my behavior. Lead by example, you fucking idiots!

  22. Proves once more those idiot's should be eliminated (something those right-wingers demanded themselves 50 years ago….the trash taking itself out)

  23. What would have been pretty good is if Oliver decided to then list the circumstances and dates of other countries banning guns.

  24. he's literally an idiot who is this guy he suppose to be in charge of our gun laws and strong advocate of the second amendment. either he doesn't care about these mass shooting or he want them to happen .

  25. you guys do realise gun crime in the UK has actually increased after the gun ban right? you can’t use australia as the only example it all depends on the country lmao

  26. You have to realize that gun control is not the way to stop the violence. By focusing on such small problems such as shootings you will only cause problems. If one seeks peace stop violence, not guns because there are always other ways to be violent other than guns, the people who are being violent should be stopped first. In that, you stop terrorists, racist groups, gangs, and mafias. You can have guns only if you have the right mindset this is why you don't let a kid drive a car let alone shoot a gun.

  27. Just uh…just gonna leave this here
    Not all of 'em are shootings, but about 50% I'd say are.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_massacres_in_Australia

    coughs yeah uh….Australia…thought you uh…thought you solved the gun stuff buddy?

  28. This was in my recommended today in 2019, I must have somehow missed this segment the first time around, glad youtube found it for me.

  29. Problem is that its a liberal LIE. It did not work in Australia, the crime rate skyrocketed up as a result of the gun ban. And although you don't hear of it in the news, the restriction of guns in the UK has also resulted in high crime rates. The number of knifing deaths in China is up because guns are restricted, showing that IF a person wants to commit murder, they will find a way to do so. So taking some moronic left wing stance of criminalizing many Americans by restricting guns is NOT going to stop murder, its just liberals trying to enforce their misguided ideology and control on the rest of us whom disagree. You may have the right to dictate law in your own home, but you can stay the hell out of mine thank you very much.

  30. If you look at the statistics for gun violence in Australia and great Britain they were declining before they banned guns, and the rate of decline was not significantly affected after they banned them. I want to adopt whatever policy started their decline of gun violence. Also I care about decreasing violence not just gun violence. We need to look at the whole picture and part of that should be gun control, but man our hyper focus on one form of violence is not as helpful as people think.
