Because treasonous Rinos like Roy Blunt agreed to this bipartisan crap as 10 who can keep a filibuster from happening, he needs to be recalled or impeached for not upholding our 2nd Amndmt constitutional rights. Shall not Infringe and red flag laws do. May not stand up to SCOTUS challenges.

Lisa, I am well aware that RINO Blunt is no good. He has been bought and sold by the DNC. Hopefully his replacement will be a real American. I left the Navy after eleven years in 1981 when Carter had high fuel cost, interest rates as high as 18% for home, and runaway inflation. Joe is worse by far.

Jennifer is suggesting that school security should not be armed with firearms. I guess she thinks security should do hand to gun combat. No wonder democrats thoughts are not respected. She can throw lies and insults around, but gets her feelings hurt so easy. Tsk tsk boo hoo.

The cowardly politicians have succumbed to the impulse to "do something" anything to look important. Never let crisis go to waste. RINO Roy Blunt is major disappointment. Luckily for Missourians, any new federal law that does not have a corresponding state law is unenforceable.

Any action that challenges the 2nd Amendment will be overturned by the SCOTUS. The committee knows this, and they also know it is not going to pass the Senate. Joe wants harsher gun laws, but he is actively working with several 'defund the police' activists over the past year, visitor logs show.

Biden, the House, and the Senate will all be very different after November 8, 2022.

Jennifer, hate speech and rude insults are commonplace on this message board unfortunately. And apparently KMIZ approves of this hate speech and refuses to police it. This creates a threatening atmosphere for a community message board.

A "well regulated Militia" doesn`t men we can have any type of armament that we want. You can`t have a bazooka or an RPG in your garage. (I hope!) Gun rights have to be based on common sense and public safety

Where do you draw the line as to what you can own? I'm all for having someone own a pistol and a rifle for hunting. Pass the common sense forms of regulation first. The general public doesn't need guns made for mass slaughter.

AR-15`s are the weapon of choice for mass shooters. There is a reason for this.

Their choice because you can go get one at the corner pawn like going to a grocery store for a gallon of milk. Plus high capacity. Easy to reload. Hopefully this new bipartisan legislation today is a good beginning.

Something needs to be done about the "gunshow loophole" Anyone can go out the fairgrounds to a gunshow and buy any gun they want with no background check whatsoever

@Jennifer M - 2A was never about having firearms for hunting. It is about the people having the same weapons the .gov has so we can overthrow tyrannical governments, just like during revolutionary war. Our right to freedom and self-defense comes from GOD and cannot be "tweaked." Learn history.

@Jennifer M - This latest afront to our rights is not a "good beginning," it is just the next step in liberal's efforts to take all our guns. Libs don't want people to fight back (e.g. Jan 6) hence long term incremental strategy. They know their policy is unpopular and won't pass at one time. FJB

Quit saying they want to take all your guns. That's completely false. Just trying to make it harder to get. You shouldn't be able to go to a gun show and walk out with a weapon able to mow down 20 people in the blink of an eye. Especially without any kind of background check, red flag, etc....

At the State Fair this year they will be giving away 100 RPG's and 100 Bazooka's with ammo, free via lottery. No ID, ATF Form 4473, Firearms Transaction Record, or Cash required. ROTFLOL. Be sure to show up Jack.

The only people who benefit by trying to arm the entire US population are the gun manufacturers. I`m sure that was their plan all along.

Are these weapons legal? Grenades and rocket launchers, also known as bazookas, are considered "destructive devices" by the National Firearms Act. They are also classified as firearms and are therefore legal with proper registration. A class III tax stamp would be required. Quit spewing lies.

But not the Sen. I wish they would at least stop sales of Assault Weapons, and raise the age.

The Republicans just put forward a bill that would immediately provide security to protect children in schools, but Chuck Schumer said no, because he doesn't want children in schools protected. "Senate GOP school safety bill". You Democrats can Google it, if you are computer literate.

I too would like a ban on assault weapons, AR type, etc.... Why is there so much hostility on here? I've noticed there seems to be an awful lot of insults and derogatory comments on here and coming from the same people. Why can't people voice an opinion here without someone insulting them?

Max DeYoung

Jennifer, I would like a ban on Democrats. Why are you so hostile towards the US Constitution? When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have them. Criminals don't obey the laws now. What makes you think they would obey the laws, if law abiding people were defenseless? Democrats can't reason at all.

Jennifer M

Ammendments can be tweaked. You can't yell fire in a crowded theater. Or yell I have a bomb on a plane. Isnt that violating your first ammendment right? Why can't they change the 2nd ammendment saying no assault type weapons? I'm not saying ban all guns. Just put in common sense laws to get them.

Max DeYoung

Second Amendment: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. The Constitution is a Legal Document. There is nothing here that can be tweaked. Tweaked is not a legal term?

I just checked and the pawn shops haven't had any AR-15's since Obama was elected in 2009. ROTFLOL. Are the Dems still repeating the lies, that guns can be bought at gun shows, without an ID, or a background check? The shooting yesterday in Columbia, was not done by a Conservative or an NRA member.

I agree Max, I was in the military that upheld our constitutional rights. Australia is in negotiations to become a Chinese colony instead of UK. It’s true, they have no gun rights at all. Did any Dem see what happened to HK after it was given back to China? They didn’t uphold freedom Noguns=NoRights

I know Dems forgot why we needed a militia in 1776.same reason now. The mass shootings in Chicago every weekend haven’t stopped because of the mayor promoting lawlessness. Dems, StLouis, same stuff, it’s the regular people who need guns. Any attempt to take guns is tyrannical red flag laws=same

Raising age is insult to every 17 to 21 year old who ever joined the military to defend us. 9th Circuit Court (newly packed by Trump) just found California law to raise age unconstitutional. The solution to school shootings is more guns in schools to make them hard targets.

Jennifer M
Jennifer M

A solution to guns in schools is MORE guns?? How ignorant can you be? That will only bring about MORE bloodshed in schools. That's absolutely stupid. Why not just hand over guns to the students? More guns is never the right solution. Hate breeds hate. Ignorance breeds Ignorance.

Jennifer M

@Harry, so if that's the case, all hospital staff, grocery store workers, waiter/waitress, theater staff etc should all be armed then?

Harry D

Of course, more good guys with guns makes places safer. Why do you think all the liberal icons, who want to take all our guns, have armed security with high-capacity magazines? And the notion that libs don't want all our guns is BS. Beto O’Rourke: "Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15." FJB

We already have the most gun violence on Earth. So let's have MORE guns..Sounds dangerous not smart. O'Roarke said AR-15, not all guns

Max DeYoung

There are 20,000 gun laws on the books. The National Rifle Association and other pro-gun groups have often cited the 20,000 gun laws that already exist on the books as reasons why more enforcement, not more legislation, is the answer to curb gun violence.

Not only has Biden divided our Nation, he has also divided the Democratic Party. That's the only positive thing he has done, in his entire life. The left can't accurately define what an assault weapon is nor what a woman is. But there are 62 other genders in their vocabulary. Follow the science.

Max, you better look at the “compromise” on red flag laws, Blunt supports them. This means anything they deem “mentally ill” or even your credit score might trigger them “seizing” your guns. Blunt needs impeached for not upholding the constitution.

RINO Roy has betrayed his base. I hope he stays in DC when he is out of the Senate and never comes back to Missouri. His name needs to be removed from the NextGen building at MU. Blunt is definitely not sharp. Stay in the swamp too long and you become the swamp.

Like most drivers, I have one hand holding my fast food, other hand holding my cell phone, a knee on the steering wheel, and rarely look up from my cell phone so I don't know if other drivers are so irresponsible to be driving distracted or not. I certainly don't drive distracted, that's bad. FJB

Thanks to technology and the news we are able to watch the true beginning of the decline and downfall of a great world power. A couple thousand years from now it will not be conjecture like with ancient civilizations and other nations. It will be the farce trial of a political opponent to silence.

It's a political prosecution, and evident to even the simplest person. Any guilty verdict will be over turned on appeal. These cheap shots from the left are buying Trump more votes, and trust than any campaign could.
