Trump Wants More Guns In Schools

Trump Wants More Guns In Schools


WELCOME TO THE “LATE SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION
CONTINUES TO BE, HOW DO WE KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE FROM GUN
VIOLENCE. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS IS A CRISIS,
SO, FOR THE PRESIDENT, FOR THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY, FOR THE
N.R.A., EVERY OPTION IS ON THE TABLE– EXCEPT FEWER GUNS. WHERE TO START? YESTERDAY, PRESIDENT TRUMP HELD
A LISTENING SESSION WITH TRAUMATIZED STUDENTS, TEACHERS,
AND PARENTS AT THE WHITE HOUSE. IT’S A GOOD PLACE TO START, BUT
IT WAS CLEARLY A TEST OF TRUMP’S ABILITY TO LISTEN, BECAUSE HE
BROUGHT ALONG A CHEAT SHEET THAT INCLUDED: “I HEAR YOU.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) I MEAN, PEOPLE HAVE CHEAT
SHEETS, BUT IT IS A LITTLE UNSETTLING THAT
THE PRESIDENT NEEDS A CHEAT SHEET FOR REACTING TO OTHER
PEOPLE’S EMOTIONS. I CAN IMAGINE THE NOTES HE USED
WHEN HE LEFT HIS WIVES. “HELLO… ‘WIFE’S NAME.’
IT’S OVER. YOU WERE A NINE AND NOW YOU’RE A
HIGH SEVEN. THANK YOU, AND I HEAR YOU, BUT I
DON’T WANT TO SEE YOU .” WELL, WE HERE AT THE “LATE SHOW”
GOT THE ACTUAL LIST. LOOKS MUCH BIGGER WHEN HE’S
HOLDING IT. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) NOW, THE REASON WE COULD SEE
THOSE QUESTIONS IN THE PHOTOGRAPH IS BECAUSE HE WAS
LOOKING AT THE OTHER SIDE, WHICH SAYS, “DO THIS.” HE DID HIS BEST. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT LISTENING IS NOT ENOUGH. TRUMP KNOWS YOU HAVE TO TAKE
ACTION, AND HE’S GOT A LOT OF IDEAS.>>AND THERE ARE A LOT OF
DIFFERENT IDEAS. I CAN NAME TEN OF THEM RIGHT
NOW. DOES ANYBODY HAVE AN IDEA AS TO
HOW TO STOP IT? WHAT IS YOUR RECOMMENDATION TO
STOP IT?>>STEPHEN: OH, HE COULD NAME
TEN SOLUTIONS, BUT HE DOESN’T WANT TO HOG THE SPOTLIGHT. “I COULD NAME TEN, AND IT WOULD
BE FIXED, BUT YOU GO FIRST, AND I’LL TELL YOU HOW MANY OF MINE
YOU GUESSED. OH, THAT’S ONE OF THEM. THAT’S ONE OF THEM. THAT’S NOT ONE OF THEM. N.R.A. WON’T LET ME DO THAT, BUT
I HEAR YOU.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) DONALD TRUMP ACTUALLY DOES HAVE
A SUGGESTION TO DEAL WITH THE NUMBER OF GUNS. HE WANTS MORE OF THEM.>>A TEACHER WOULD HAVE A
CONCEALED GUN ON THEM. IF YOU HAD A TEACHER WHO WAS
ADEPT AT FIREARMS, THEY COULD END THE ATTACK VERY QUICKLY. I THINK IT COULD VERY WELL SOLVE
YOUR PROBLEM.>>STEPHEN: YES, ARM THE
TEACHERS! I’M SURE IT’S IN THE BUDGET. “SORRY, YOUR SCHOOL CAN’T AFFORD
ENOUGH COPIES OF ‘TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD,’ BUT, GOOD NEWS,
WE’RE GIVING YOU SOMETHING THAT CAN KILL ANY BIRD.” ( LAUGHTER )
( PIANO RIFF ) YEAH. NOW, TRUMP’S IDEA DIDN’T GO OVER
GREAT WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT, TEACHERS, AND PEOPLE WHO ARE
CHILDREN. SO THIS MORNING, HE TOOK TO
TWITTER TO CLARIFY HIS POSITION, AND DOUBLED DOWN. “I NEVER SAID ‘GIVE TEACHERS
GUNS.’ WHAT I SAID WAS TO LOOK AT THE
POSSIBILITY OF GIVING ‘CONCEALED GUNS TO GUN-ADEPT TEACHERS WITH
MILITARY OR SPECIAL TRAINING EXPERIENCE’– ONLY THE BEST.” YEAH, TRUMP NEVER SAID TO GIVE
GUNS TO TEACHERS WILLY-NILLY. CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT THIS
COUNTRY WOULD BE LIKE IF ANYONE COULD GET A GUN? ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) THAT WAS ACTUALLY HARD TO READ. TRUMP TWEETED ON, “IF A
POTENTIAL ‘SICKO SHOOTER’ KNOWS THAT A SCHOOL HAS A LARGE NUMBER
OF VERY WEAPONS-TALENTED TEACHERS– AND OTHERS– WHO WILL
BE INSTANTLY SHOOTING, THE SICKO WILL NEVER ATTACK THAT SCHOOL. COWARDS WON’T GO THERE. PROBLEM SOLVED.” YEAH, THAT’S WHAT SICKOS ARE
KNOWN FOR: LOGICAL REASONING. AND WHAT DOES HE MEAN, “WEAPONS
TALENTED?” THAT’S NOT A PHRASE THAT I WANT
TO ASSOCIATE WITH TEACHERS. “BOY, JIM, YOU SURE ARE HANDY
WITH GUNS. HAVE YOU CONSIDERED WORKING WITH
CHILDREN?” ( LAUGHTER )
HE FINISHED, “MUST BE OFFENSIVE, DEFENSE ALONE WON’T WORK!”
OH, SIR, I THINK YOUR SUGGESTION IS OFFENSIVE ENOUGH. ( APPLAUSE )
AND, THIS AFTERNOON, TRUMP MET WITH STATE AND LOCAL OFFICIALS
TO TALK ABOUT SCHOOL SAFETY, WHERE HE TRIPLED DOWN ON THE
IDEA OF ARMING TEACHERS.>>FRANKLY, YOU HAVE TEACHERS
THAT ARE MARINES FOR 20 YEARS. THEY RETIRE AND THEY BECOME A
TEACHER. THEY’RE ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE,
COAST GUARD, PEOPLE WHO HAVE WON SHOOTING CONTESTS AND, YOU KNOW,
THEY’RE FOR WHATEVER. ( LAUGHTER )
>>STEPHEN: IF THERE’S ONE THING THAT REASSURES YOU AS A PARENT
ABOUT THE SAFETY OF YOUR CHILDREN IS WHEN THE PRESIDENT
SAYS, “WHATEVER.” ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
I HAVEN’T GIVEN IT MUCH THOUGHT. SO, SHOOTING CONTESTS OR
CONTESTS FOR WHATEVER. “I SAW A GUY AT THE CARNIVAL
WITH A BIG MALLET DO THE BANGY THING, GOT THE LI’L BISCUIT WAY
UP THE POLE. MAYBE HE COULD KNOCK THE BAD
GUYS OVER THE HEAD. PROBLEM SOLVED. EVERYBODY GETS A STUFFED ANIMAL. I HEAR YOU.” ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) AS A MATTER OF FACT, HE HAS ONE
SPECIFIC GUY IN MIND FOR THE JOB.>>I’M WATCHING JOHN KELLY,
GENERAL JOHN KELLY. SO HE’S A FOUR-STAR MARINE. HE’S A TOUGH COOKIE. IF HE WAS A TEACHER OF MINE, I
WOULDN’T MIND HIM HAVING A GUN. BECAUSE THEY KNOW GENERAL KELLY
IS THE HISTORY TEACHER. HE’S TEACHING ABOUT HOW WE WIN
WARS, OKAY? AND HE’S GOT A CONCEALED WEAPON,
BUT THEY’RE GOING TO KNOW HE’S GOT A CONCEALED WEAPON BECAUSE
WE TELL THEM THE BULLETS ARE GOING TO BE FLYING IN THE OTHER
DIRECTION.>>STEPHEN: SO, PARENTS, YOU CAN
RELAX. BULLETS WON’T BE FLYING IN ONE
DIRECTION. NOW BULLETS WILL BE FLYING IN
ALL DIRECTIONS. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT HE’S A BUSINESSMAN, HE KNOWS YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.>>AND WHAT I RECOMMEND WE DO
IS, THE PEOPLE WHO DO CARRY, WE GIVE THEM A BONUS. WE GIVE THEM A LITTLE BIT OF A
BONUS.>>STEPHEN: I’M SURE ALL THAT’S
IN THE SCHOOL BUDGET, TOO. “SORRY, KIDS, WE HAD TO CUT THE
MUSIC PROGRAM, BUT YOU CAN STILL WATCH MR. HUTCHINSON POLISHING
HIS GLOCK IN THE DARKENED BAND ROOM.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )>>Jon: OH, MY GOSH!>>Stephen: OR HE CAN PLAY
THAT THING. YEAH.>>Jon: HE CAN PLAY IT, HUH.>>Stephen: HE CAN PLAY THAT
GLOCK. AND AGAIN, THESE TRAGEDIES CAN
NEVER BE BLAMED ON THE 310 MILLION GUNS IN AMERICA. THEY ALWAYS HAVE TO BE BLAMED ON
SOMETHING ELSE, LIKE THE SAD FACT THAT TOO MANY OF OUR
SCHOOLS ARE NOT BUILT TO WITHSTAND THE ZOMBIE
APOCALYPSE.>>WE HAVE TO HARDEN OUR
SCHOOLS, NOT SOFTEN THEM UP. A GUN-FREE ZONE, TO A KILLER, OR
SOMEBODY THAT WANTS TO BE A KILLER, THAT’S LIKE GOING IN FOR
AN ICE CREAM. THAT’S LIKE, “HERE I AM, TAKE
ME.”>>Stephen: DOES DONALD TRUMP
IMAGINE ICE CREAM SAYING THAT TO HIM WHEN HE EATS IT? DONALD, I’M HERE, TAKE ME. ( LAUGHTER )
PUT ME IN YOUR WEIRD LITTLE MOUTH. ( LAUGHTER )
NOW, OBVIOUSLY, ALL OF THIS SOUNDS PRETTY GRIM. BUT DON’T WORRY. DONALD TRUMP HAD A MESSAGE OF
HOPE.>>I THINK WE NEED HARDENED
SITES. WE NEED TO LET PEOPLE KNOW, YOU
COME INTO OUR SCHOOLS, YOU’RE GOING TO BE DEAD.>>STEPHEN: SURE. ( LAUGHTER )
SURE. THERE YOU GO. YEAH, WHY NOT? ESPECIALLY ONCE YOU ARM THE
TEACHERS AND YOU RIG ONE OF THE JANITORS TO EXPLODE ON CONTACT. WHICH ONE? YOU’LL NEVER KNOW. AND NEITHER WILL HE. KEEPS EVERYONE ON THEIR TOES. OH, AND MAYBE CHANGE THE MASCOT
TO GUNNY, THE GUN-TOTING GUN. THERE’S A HAPPY IMAGE OF
AMERICA’S FUTURE. AND TRUMP WASN’T THE ONLY ONE
LISTENING TO VICTIMS OF GUN VIOLENCE LAST NIGHT. CNN HOSTED A TOWN HALL ON THE
AFTERMATH OF THE FLORIDA SHOOTING. IT INCLUDED SOME OF THE MOST
OUTSPOKEN SURVIVORS, AND PARENTS, BUT THE REAL STAR OF
THE SHOW WAS FLORIDA SENATOR AND MAN WHO JUST RECEIVED HIS CASH
FROM THE N.R.A., MARCO RUBIO. NOW, THE CROWD WASN’T EXACTLY
WITH MARCO RUBIO LAST NIGHT. AND YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY: “IF
THEY’RE NOT WITH YOU, YOU’RE MARCO RUBIO.” ( LAUGHTER )
HERE HE IS, TRYING TO EXPLAIN WHAT HE SEES AS THE PERILS OF
BANNING SEMI-AUTOMATIC WEAPONS.>>ON THE ISSUE YOU’VE RAISED
ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND CHECKS, RELATED DIRECTLY TO WHAT YOU
SAID ABOUT THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN, IT’S NOT THE LOOPHOLES. IT’S THE PROBLEM THAT ONCE YOU
START LOOKING AT HOW EASY IT IS TO GET AROUND IT, YOU WOULD
LITERALLY HAVE TO BAN EVERY SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLE THAT’S SOLD
IN AMERICA. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
FAIR ENOUGH.>>Stephen: THAT IS A GUY WHO
CAN NOT READ THEçó ROOM. ( LAUGHTER )
LOOK, WE’D HAVE TO GET RID OF GUNS AND THEN IT’S A SLIPPERY
SLOPE TO DEAD PEOPLE. OH, YOU WOULD LIKE THAT? FAIR ENOUGH. GUESS IT TAKES ALL KINDS. ( LAUGHTER )
NOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GIVING RUBIO CREDIT FOR EVEN BEING AT
THIS TOWN HALL.>>IT WAS BRAVE OF RUBIO TO SHOW
UP.>>CREDIT TO RUBIO FOR SHOWING
UP LAST NIGHT.>>I COMMEND SENATOR RUBIO
GOING.>>HATS OFF TO HIM FOR SHOWING
UP.>>STEPHEN: HERE’S THE THING. JUST SHOWING UP ISN’T THAT
IMPRESSIVE! HE WORKS FOR THOSE PEOPLE. IF YOUR BOSS CALLS YOU INTO
THEIR OFFICE, YOU CAN’T SAY, “YES, I HIT A CUSTOMER, TURNED
THE BREAK ROOM INTO A SEX DUNGEON, AND I’M CURRENTLY VERY
HIGH… BUT I SHOWED UP EVEN THOUGH I KNEW YOU’D BE MAD. I SHOULD GET SOME CREDIT FOR
THAT. WANT TO GET HIGH?”
( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE )
THEY DO. THEY GET HIGH! I KNOW THE FEELING. FIGHT IT. FIGHT IT. THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE EVENING WAS
WHEN RUBIO CAME FACE-TO-FACE WITH CAMERON KASKY, ONE OF THE
TEENAGERS WHO SURVIVED THE PARKLAND SHOOTING, AND CAMERON
HAD A PARTICULARLY POINTED QUESTION FOR THE SENATOR.>>SENATOR RUBIO, CAN YOU TELL
ME RIGHT NOW THAT YOU WILL NOT ACCEPT A SINGLE DONATION FROM
THE N.R.A. IN THE FUTURE? ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>STEPHEN: OH, THAT’S GOING TO LEAVE A MARCO. ( LAUGHTER )
OH. MAYBE A SKID MARCO. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT RUBIO HAD AN ANSWER TO THE IDEA THAT THE N.R.A. PAID HIM TO
FOLLOW THEIR AGENDA:>>NO MORE N.R.A. MONEY? MORE N.R.A. MONEY?>>THAT– THAT IS THE WRONG WAY
TO LOOK– FIRST OF ALL, THE ANSWER IS, PEOPLE BUY INTO MY
AGENDA. THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IS
THAT PEOPLE BUY INTO MY AGENDA. YOU CAN ASK THAT QUESTION, AND I
CAN TELL YOU THAT PEOPLE BUY INTO MY AGENDA.>>STEPHEN: “YES, PEOPLE BUY
INTO MY AGENDA. I DON’T ASK WHO, OR WHY, I JUST
TELL THEM TO LEAVE THE MONEY ON THE DRESSER.”

  1. For the record, Rubio's not wrong. Those who commit gun violence are just going to go around the system. Restricting legal access to guns does not prevent people who would use them illegally from having them.
    And I can't remotely believe I'm saying the following three words, but Trump is right! To a perpetrator of gun violence, 'gun free zone' doesn't mean they can't have a gun there, it means they can get away with committing gun violence there much more easily.
    And if I wasn't aghast at myself before for saying Trump is right about something, that's not the only thing he was right about! He proposed the guns being placed in the hands of qualified people who would defend the innocent! Why is that scary to people?!

  2. The thing we forget is that some students are twice as big as their teachers. Now the kids don’t even need to sneak in the gun.

  3. Best thing you can do is stop mentioning the shooters names in the news and give them a number, most of the shootings is also caused by the satisfaction that people know that they killed that many people and their name goes down in history even if it’s bad.

    It’ll lower it a bit not much mind you I do know that but that’s one of the many things we could do, so they know “oh yea we don’t give a shit who you are you’re not gonna have that fame and no one will remember you only as shooter number 68.”

  4. Maybe giving teachers guns isn't as crazy as it sounds. I mean it is a bit crazy, but what the hell : )

    Also, the Midwest at least will never give up their automatic and semiautomatic rifles. No way

  5. …. has he not realized that mass shooters are almost always on a suicide mission? If they don't blow their own brains out, they get blown up by a S.W.A.T team.. They walk in knowing they wont make it out alive for fuck sakes!! What is wrong with this motherfucker!!?

  6. so, to put it into context check out this:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rR9IaXH1M0
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9UFyNy-rw4

    Jim Jefferies sums it all up on gun control USA v Australia

  7. Good lord man! Its been over two years since the election, just suck it up and wait for 2020 for another chance at getting your favorite candidate elected. And why do so many people have a problem with owning guns, they have extensive background checks and make you fill out a six page federal form (4437) for a reason.

  8. i Suppose there is strongest Gun Lobby in US. Even, If president himself whether Democrat or Republic think to implement Gun-Free Policy, it not possible in US.

  9. Gun regulation and the controversy around it aside…

    Trump does know that these kids going to shoot up a school don’t particularly plan to leave alive right?

  10. Armed teachers would decrease so many school shootings. Imagine if someone tried shooting up a police station. Not gonna happen because those people armed. It might as well be suicide for someone to try to shoot up a police station. Same way if teachers were armed.

  11. i am a lawbiding gun owner. guess what, i dont go shooting people. 2nd amendment shall not be infridged. i would love any of you try to take my guns.

  12. I hate Trump, especially 'cause I'm half-Mexican but if Americans can't repeal the second amendment, what else can they do, hope they don't get shot again? Just make sure all the staff has the safety on all the time!

  13. All these "Cowards" running through Schools and shooting numerous People. What is going on in Trumps Head? A Coward is sitting in his Home holding his Guns pretending to live in the greatest Country in the World instead of really making it the greatest Country by standing up and change everything that has led to him sitting in his Home holding his Guns.

  14. armed teachers is a big start. I cant believe so many people are against this. Could u imagine the tragedies that would of been avoided if even a single decent person had a weapon to put down the scumbag killing the kids?

  15. Don't worry, Trump reassured us all. Bullets will be flying everywhere.
    What's next? Bullet resistant vests for everyone?

  16. I don't have a TV so when I was studying the candidates I listen to several of his rallies. I couldn't believe that people were cheering for this idiot who was just making up statistics as he went along! All lies of course. And I thought, "surely they'll look his stats up and know he's lying?" But no in the next rally he'd make up even MORE stats that were lies and he'd still be cheered! Willingly ignorant. Someone anyone could look up in a couple of minutes on the Internet. Then I realized he is illiterate. The highest job in the land and the man doesn't read and has to have an aide tweet for him. And it never stops. And the one person he worships is himself! How is that possible? Trump is in his own fantasy land where he loves to create chaos. A bigot on so many levels who thinks he's above the law. How many people refuse to work for him because this administration is going to be the one remembered as being full of traitors to America. 🙁 Songs

  17. Anyone has ideas how to stop it?
    I should rephrase the question. Does anyone have ideas on why not to reelect Donald Trump?

  18. I feel so much safer now. As Donald said, you come into our schools, you will be dead. Lovely.

    That surely reassures the kids that schools are safe.

  19. He needs a cheat sheet because he is a cheater and a liar. Maybe he uses his cheat sheets for when he is playing golf too.

  20. I swear he talks banning guns. But he still has armed body guards. Bull s##t. We the normal people without the money to afford a armed bodyguard. Gun laws only take guns out of the haends. As you can see the Chicago gun laws are against the contituion and the state's lost the civil war soo states cannot make laws to undermine the constitutional rights of citizens. Surly people didn't thing the civil war was only about slavery. That kind of history taught is foolish.

  21. Teachers having concealed sidearms will not deter those shooters. 95% of those shooters WANT to die. You have concealed firearms, you're creating karma. You're creating karma when you seek further confrontation.

  22. Trump best President in America history, I would love for Stephen Colbert, to meet me in a secluded place somewhere, I would beat the crap out of this punk, and make him eat dog crap on national TV

  23. anyone who reads a little history knows every time a country that confiscated guns, a genocide followed usually in the millions being murdered. And any fool who has a little common sense knows criminals would never turn in their guns, so you end up with a population where only the government and the criminals have guns. So do some homework and will realize all these school shootings are government sponsored with the goal of gun confiscation. If your government is involved with these shootings, you really want to be left defenseless? When in history did 'trust your government' lead to a free society?

  24. Ya arm teachers. What could go wrong? Hell give them an RPG. That way they could blow up your kids for looking at them sideways.

  25. "People buy into my agenda" was a good answer. Unfortunately it wasn't the answer to the question he had been asked.
    People need to stop dicking around with political doublespeak. Ask them a question, if they don't answer it…ask it again, and just keep asking the same question until they eventually run out of BS answers (a long time), and are forced, kicking and screaming, to answer the question.
    Media, do the same thing. If you get a BS answer to a question that was not asked, ask YOUR question over and over. Eventually politicians will learn.

  26. Suicidal mass shooters can complete there mission. Without anyone else being killed. If the targets are armed, trained, and prepaired…

  27. Did it ever occur to you moron that if the " sicko " knew that the teachers were armed this is precisely what would appeal to said " sicko " why because said " sicko " is by definition sick.

  28. Related or Not?
    Hey, mental patients aren't Socrates, and neither are regular people. Maybe, starting with a simple list of things that might cause reality issues? Hilarious. This is what it's like in the "institutions" axioms and paradoxes aside:
    1. Beatles, "Revolver".
    2. Other things my brain consumes.
    3. Fast food
    4. Showering and shaving (due to essential oils and reality stinks)
    6. Those lights at the fair at night.
    7. Here we'll divide the list into the 5 senses, and other transcendent items…

  29. I am from Pittsburgh and when the Tree of Life massacre happened at the synagogue last October, the first thing the shooter did was to shoot the armed security guard..and this guy wasn't really remotely smart. This idea is the most horrible one I've heard. Putting guns in schools? My kids are grown, but if I knew the teachers or anyone in the school was armed in the school, I would pull my kids out of that school. Home school or cyber schools offer an alternative. Arm the teachers???? Seriously? Make them become skilled and certified at marksmanship? There are school teacher strikes all over the country for lack of respectable pay and benefits–as it is. This is a stupid, idiotic, and very dangerous idea. And, imagine, the little kids response when first grade teacher, Mrs. AndyGriffith takes out her AK27 from her big purse and starts firing…are you kidding me? Teachers who are Marines, really? This is the Twilight zone, right? After Tree of Life massacre, with shooter charging, yelling, "All Jews must die" Trump issued Pittsburgh, the Jewish community he started to blame the victims, the city, the temples. He demanded, the synagogues should have had armed guards. That's one reason our mayor and every single official in Pittsburgh didn't even meet him at the airport when he came after Pgh told him not to come NOW, not until after the families have buried their dead and sat shiva…respecting traditions and under such horrible circumstances. He didn't listen, he came anyway and made a big fucking mess in an area and at a time when the whole city was in shock and people's emotions were raw. Streets were blocked off blocks in all directions and he comes in with a whole other blockade and intrudes on a city's sorrow. The practice of sitting shiva had to be explained to him. I never saw anything so insensitive in my life.

  30. Im just going to state something here, where i live in polk county florida there hasn't been a mass shooting in ages, all because the people here have concealed carry and know what they are doing, if someone went to a mall and open fired they would get maybe 2 or 3 rounds out before everyone else pulled out their guns and started shooting back, all of you sound silly and uneducated mr trump is actually correct, i know from experience.

  31. Minutes from a local gov't. meeting somewhere I forget, reprinted in "Harper's," one interesting suggestion was made: Put A BUCKET OF ROCKS in each classroom- because the rocks won't ricochet! (The excerpt ended with this comment: "It sounds like you've really thought this through..")

  32. I swear I saw some seriously outlandish parody program last year or even further back, that's entire purpose & manner of discussing guns in schools to demonstrate the absurdity of how easily these types of new "programs" could be put in place at anytime with the current state of weapons laws in the US.
    It proved some scary shit then but it was a political & social commentary comedy meant to be taken to the extreme…Now it suddenly doesn't seem so extreme and that is f*cking terrifying.

    Hey kids! Say hello to the Puppy Pistol & Uzi-Corn for girls! The Kinder-Guardians Program!
    –Sasha Baron Cohen 'Who Is America'.

  33. My family and myself, we've been very happy that our past neighborhoods were safe to walk about and schools were safe to go to. But when it comes to 'firearms' I think same as my dad "any type of weapon should be in the hands of a) police officer b) army officer c) fed official. People with years of experience and lifelong clear-headed (logical) aptitude to actually protect and serve. Also able to pass a background check.

    My grandpa (may he rest in peace) years ago he found someone walking around his home late at night. He asked nana and me to stay in the car. He went to the trunk and prepped his arrow set. He walked into the house and shot at the intruder (who got arrested and sent to the hospital and went to jail). After that night he sued the intruder for breaking a bunch of things inside the house. Gosh! The robber did survive and went to prison. That was the only time anyone ever messed with grandpa.
    "De oppresso liber, sir" 🙋‍♀️

  34. so the logic is to make a bigger profit from the school shootings by BUYING MORE GUNS and give them to teachers.

  35. Trump wants every frigging thing in the world starting with real hair. For his entire cowardly career he has put himself at the top of his chicken shit list of his priorities. Unfortunately the rest of the world lives in a reality that is so far from his thinking. He has lost all credibility. If this jag off had any idea of reality or military training he would think immediately of the sniper that might be targeting his gigantic orange head. When Our President Kennedy was murdered by a single gunman far from his position, it ment that future presidents need to guard themselves.
    Kennedy was loved by 90% of Americans. What if trump was dispised by 90 %. I think he is just stupid enough to get his head 223d into history, and leave Americans with nothing but a sense of great joy. Does anyone tell the twerp not to go to these places that asked to keep the hell away from them while they grieve. Or are his people standing by with the mops and lots of those disposable paper towels. Like the one. he thinks he saved Puerto Rico with. I got drafted and served with Pvt. Carrero in the Army. Carrero is a proud Puerto Rican. He wanted badly to become a sniper. Im gonna call that man and see how he's doing these days. A flabby assed old man should try to keep an eye on his lying, cowardly 6. Its a terribly nasty world out there. Dont want to see even the biggest looser of all time turn into huge orange blur on a Zapruder film.
    6 is your magic number old man. Better learn to turn that head 360 degrees. Or better still, abdicate before the blur.

  36. WHY ARE ASSAULT WEAPONS NOT BANNED? …..Stop giving guys like Rubio a,platform. He's an embarrassment to parts of his Lation/:Hispanic/ Chicano history.

  37. The person behind the gun is the real issue period guns dont fire on there own, evil breeds from mental illness..its one branch..another branch is communism, another is disease

  38. Am watching this a few days after El Paso and Dayton… nothing much changed since Feb 23, 2018

  39. Giving teachers guns??? My STEM teacher would have shot at least one of the kids in my class, considering he chucked a chair at them.

  40. All bullshit jokes aside when a president doesnt give a damn about kids american kids then us as a the peopme are the ones to blame for the graves those dead children have filled for not removing trump from office. What the hell cant we call a number and complain to the betrer business bureau. The feds hear the people cant they hurry up and stop this madness. This guy is trying to change 50 years of time proven policys during a 4 year term to set his name in stone.

  41. I clicked on this today thinking it was about the Dayton and El Paso shootings. Wow, goes to show how little this administration has done about protecting people from gun violence. Stephen could have taken a break and just rereleased this and no one would have noticed.

  42. Stephen, I love you man but you ought to try to buy a gun tomorrow and see how far you get there in New York. I dare you, see how "easy" it is.
    MUCH easier to buy an illegal gun than the lawful way.

  43. Imagine you are a teacher. There is a kid running around the playground hitting other children with a stick. Do you take the stick away, or give all the other kids sticks so they can "defend themselves."

  44. Oh bloody Hell, just give every person a gun and when the smoke clears who ever us left standing can start over.(This is said SARCASTICALLY)

  45. Did they not have a armed security guard turn and run leaving the unarmed teachers and children to fend for themselves

  46. So, your a kindergarten teacher,art teacher, gym teacher.. here's a gun …and I'll get a BONUS!!! $$$ solves everything.. scuz me while I puke!
