Donald Trump won this election instead of Biden. We will fight this until we win. Enough of the liberals BS and time for them to suck it up with the fact that there will be 4 years of trump.

Mail in voting made it way too easy to create voter fraud. Regardless of the election results, Josh Hawley has the right to make his objection. He should exercise that right.

The democrats continually ignore the evidence that the elections were manipulated in Penn, AZ and other states. This evidence is also conveniently ignored by numerous media outlets and characterized as "baseless." This is clearly untrue. It should be properly investigated.

It's been thrown out of courts; even REPUBLICAN elected officials declare the election was fair (including many WH staff); this is just showboating on Hawley's part, attempting to keep his name out there as he wants to make a run for the presidency in 2024.

Because, due to the volatility of the situation, it's better for everyone to have their final say in the matter. Then, once the election results are verified, the country can move forward and turn our attention to other pressing matters.

Despite 60 separate Courtroom attempts, no actual evidence has been submitted. This is another desperate action, this time by Hawley. I'm embarrassed by his shallow attempt.

Josh Hawley is an embarrassment to the state of Missouri. I would love to know what Trump has on him. Two top Trump officials have said that there was not voter fraud on a level that would affect the outcome of the election. No one has presented a shred of evidence to the contrary.

Multiple court cases have proven nothing. Even the FBI couldn't find evidence of voter fraud. Why, why do this? If you have evidence, show it. If you do not, shut up.

More than 50 courts have found no evidence of voter fraud. It's time to move on and get over it. We can't try to overturn an election every time we don't agree with the outcome. Every side will do this for every election if this is allowed. Let's not set this precedent.

Truth - fair elections as the court threw out Rudy's claims otherwise. Hawley is just trying to make a name for himself & we all see through it. He also doesn't actually reside in MO & can't be OUT of politics soon enough to suit this voter!

Hawley is only out for himself. He has aspirations to run for president and wants to get in good with Trump's base but isn't doing anything for his constituents. He didn't get my vote in the past and won't again in the future for anything he runs for.

The margin is so wide that opposing the election results in one or two states makes no sense. A waste of money. The states have a right to decide how to conduct their elections as it pointed out in the Constitution. All the lawsuits have failed because they produce no proof.

Hawley is a piece of shit. He cares not for democracy, and the real needs of Americans or Missourians, but only for his own future as another corrupt, bribe-taking politician. He is making a mockery of Democracy, and should join the long list of republicans who should be removed from office.

I voted for this side due to the fact that way too many individuals are allowed to purchase/possess firearms when they have no legal right; nor ability; to do so.

People who have no legal right to possess firearms can not pass a background check. ATF Form 4473 - Firearms Transaction Record Revisions. Please educate yourself.

That should have been done after the Sandy Hook tragedy. Also, limit the age when a person can buy a gun. No sales of assault weapons to anyone under 25 and then with a thorough background check. Stop the killing of innocent children.

There is no such thing as an assault weapon. Assault is a physical attack, performed by a person or an animal. A weapon used, is only a tool being used in the physical attack. That could even be a pillow used to smother someone. Do you have assault pillows in your home? Please educate yourself.

What a foolish, arbitrary thing to say, Bonnie. Age 25? Why 25? What makes that the magical age when someone is suddenly responsible enough to buy a particular type of firearm? Go back to bed, Bonnie.

Assault weapons are already banned. These automatic weapons are for military use only.. Democrats want to ban semi-automatic weapons, but like to call them assault weapons because it sounds more deadly. In truth, they consider any weapon that will have an automatic reload to be an assault weapon.

Does anybody actually think this would stop the nightly shootings, by felons in Columbia using stolen forearms? No, I don't think so either. People who legally purchase firearms, are not the people committing crimes with firearms. Why not start holding the criminals responsible?

I don't trust the people pushing for more gun control. They just want to take all guns away from citizens in an incremental approach, one tiny step at a time. They need to be stopped now so I am opposed to all control efforts. I vote and I donate money to Republican candidates who think like me.

This is nothing more than a political grandstand in an effort to win votes. The bill will do little to stem violence and is only for politicians to use at election time. The Democrats are taking a tragedy and using it to get their agenda passed without any proof the bill would make a difference.
