For years, the National Rifle Association wielded its political power to dominate America’s conversation about gun rights and gun control — outlasting and overpowering the calls for change that followed mass shooting after mass shooting, from Columbine to Newtown to Charleston. But as the 2020 election approaches, the once-unrivaled organization is facing both internal strife and a rising external threat: a movement led by student survivors of the Parkland mass shooting, whose gun-control advocacy has kept the issue in the headlines and motivated a groundswell of politicians willing to take on the NRA.

Kids are the cost of "freedom" in America. Disgusting.
We don't do what the American people want, who are acting like anti-americans with an illiteracy problem, because when you're against yourselves, you don't know what you're doing, our country is freedom, Constitution you take that away you are not the American people,! I say this to the last clip of this film if you watch it is a people's issue, it is an issue to teach all people to treat everybody the finest, with consistency, that education ain't the only way up the ladder, that each man woman and child in America can be in some level of wealth, when this happens you will diminish the crime issue!
Do you love your country as you love your children and you love your family and you love your neighbor they were chopping our heads off before we came over to this country we must not abuse our freedom we must not go into control and lose our prosperity we must not keep poverty going but to end poverty if you would have ended poverty and got the bottom half of the United States of America up into some level of wealth you would have ended most of the troubles in the United States of America except for the troublemakers that are creating these scenario's
Did you teach your kids The Ten Commandments today where it says Thou shalt not kill our God is not the god of the Dead HE is the GOD of the loving living, I'm against teaching religion in the schools, but you should have kept the history lesson going, you took all the history of the Holy Bible which is history of all of us out of the schools, history and facts (are not religion) and that's why America has made a mistake! When you teach the history you're not teaching blasphemy you're not teaching religion but you're teaching something that actually happened that we need to know about, which teaches to stay away from religion to stay away from faults gods to stay away from a big fat liar!
We're not teaching our kids vigilance we're not teaching our kids the Constitution of the United States and what every word in it actually means so when you hear somebody speak different we know that we have a foreigner in our hands it's called wake up America we must join forces and we got work to do we need to bring back the consistency of wonderful people and protect one another with our lives cause all we have is each other
I'm a lot maybe like Abraham Lincoln I just come out and tell you like it is in speak my mind you don't have to wonder when I speak you know
Never blame people that are trying to help the United States of America preserving our freedom and prosperity and high standard of life which is being taken away from us right as we are in existence!
Like I said there's a crime going on where they're sending these people out to gun people down on purpose just to get people to give up guns no one's looked into it and nobody's done anything about it and gun shouldn't be the issue we have a people's issue
Al Gore got on at the last minutes before the election and acted like the worst dictator on the planet he was going to take your guns he was going to take your backyard he was going to take your wife and he was going to take your freedom
A little child that's never fired a firearm doesn't realize what he has in his hand and what it does and the bullet travels faster than his mind or anything he knows it travels as fast as he blinks every child in this country should learn about a firearm and why nobody should have one in their hand unless they're pointing at a Target or shooting at some game or protecting themselves if it's absolutely necessary
Psychological warfare to get in the minds of certain ones that will haul off and do something, thinking they're doing the right thing and kill off a massive bunch of people for nothing, that's how the (enemy another country) can kill you without firing a shot or dropping the bomb themselves
All superpowers have all been attacked and taken over from the inside of the country with no vigilance the enemy gets inside the country and inside the government they start at the public school level as you are watching right now
Nobody in the world can attack us from the outside in our country they are coming into our country to change our country into their own country Vigilance is needed inside the United States of America!!!!!
Do you know there's another evil Wicked Force after us they're forcing us into control to get rid of freedom and control make sure that we don't have prosperity in our freedom in the United States of America
Don't be shocked if law enforcement is backing these evil Wicked people that want to take your guns away
Do you know of crimes going on where the no good law enforcement not doing anything about it we're evil Wicked people are sending these gunmen out on purpose just so the United States of America will fight over the gun issue these criminals are killing people to try to get our guns taken away from us
When you take the freedom in the Constitution away from the American people you're sensually seeing that everybody that died for this country died for nothing that we came over here for nothing
How come the people are so illiterate in the United States of America the NRA is not blame for anything people drama stricken trash bags people mistreated in our society people not raised right because you didn't care about their lives they don't care about your life and you're sitting around trying to figure it out well now you know dumb shit! America's got a People problem not a gun problem the Constitution still works and all the Amendments still work in the freedom of firearm still work but the people have a lot of work to do to raise their kids right and take the video games away on kill kill kill why don't you give him something like love love love caring for one another protecting one another having consideration for others
How about black on black violence? Fathers missing from a home? Not having a nasty vegetable for a US PRESIDENT? Why is Biden keeping our borders open during a global pandemic? First liberals attack masculinity, now they want to take away our ability to defend and protect ourselves from the defund police radicals. Criminals don't care about your laws. Every liberal idea is a disaster. Raise better children then we'll talk.
