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.

Schumer blocks Senate GOP school safety bill. Democrats don't want laws that work, they want death and mayhem.

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.

I had already served six years in the U S Navy when I turned 25. Your reasoning is less than that of a child.

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.

Funny how quick they are to protect the lives of embryos because "life matters" yet 10 year olds get slaughtered by an 18 year old that can buy guns and it's political. Disgusting yet predictable hypocrisy among conservatives

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?

Hunter Biden purchased a firearm via background check, before promptly tossing in a dumpster near a public school. So....

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.

Yes, the Dems are acting true to form, untrustworthy and immoral. The only change they make, is for the worse.

As long as we follow the TRO filed by Ali Graeff HOR candidate two days ago which will bar us from also using any electronic voting devices and preserve the 2020 election results for further analysis. 2000 mules movie is true!

Without question. The democrats know there was massive fraud. It was very obvious. They just hope they can keep doing it. The bills Governor Parson signed help combat that, at least here in Missouri. Several other states have similar bills. Woops, too bad, democrats!

Again, Lisa stfu about your fraud. Enough crying over it. 2000 mules is a bogus one sided documentary made by a right wing supportive convicted felon of illegal campaign contributions fraud that of course Dump pardoned. When you or anyone has proof, REAL proof, please please show it.

If someday someone has documented proof there was fraud, I'll be first in line to agree to hold them accountable and put Trump back in office. Till then, you all can shove a wet sock in it. Justin, I understand that's a game you and your cellie played to pass the time away.

Yes, but not as much as banning electronic voting machines that are hacked, change votes, and guaranteed to give a win to Democrats. Ballot harvesting needs to be outlawed. GOP really needs to up their game with counting the votes to avoid a steal in 2024. Libs will try to steal again. FJB

Russia, Russia, Russia, prostitutes peeing on the bed. Hunter's laptop is just Russian propaganda. Manmade global warming is real. The 2020 election was not stollen. If you only listen to the main stream media liberal narrative, you would think these things are true. Question Authority. FJB

The republicans have gone to court over alleged "voter fraud" dozens of times, and they have lost every one of those cases. Even Trump appointed judges have said there is nothing there. Time to move on

I would like to see a question about how to end the daily shootings in Columbia, or why the homeless percentage in Columbia, is two times the states percentage of homeless people. What is Columbia doing to encourage this kind of activity?

Schiff has a whistleblower that can prove, Donald Trump was driving the truck that the 51 immigrants died in, down in San Antonio, based on hear say and newly manufactured evidence generously paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.

I hope Trump runs for a House of Representatives seat. If he does, he will become the Speaker of the House, Nancy will go home, and DeSantis will become our Next President. The House, the Senate, and the President will be controlled by Americans once again. Amen to that.

The hearings will have some influence on the midterms, but not enough. Democrats never turn out to vote in midterm elections. Might have some influence on the 2024 presidential election though

"It's the economy, stupid." immortal political advice from the skull, James Carville. People voter their pocketbooks. Jan 6 committee is just a Dem show trial that no one is paying attention to. I just hope FJB does not get us into another war to distract from his many failed policies. FJB

The committee is made of six radical left wing democrats, and two radical left wing RINO's. What could possibly go wrong?
