    The NRA is a criminal organization taking money from idiots.



  5. Fred Gonzalez on November 18, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    More bs! Marxist BLM and Antifa terrorists went on a rampage of death and destruction across the country with the blessings of the corrupt and incompetent Joe Biden!

    MSNBC please start a App to watch your channel



  7. Dittzx on November 18, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    I know MSNBC isn’t considered a news station. But don’t they have some sort of obligation to telling the truth or is it simply what democrats want to hear?



  8. The Occasional Moonlight on November 18, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Tim Mak speaks like he works for NPR lol I look forward to checking out the book!



  9. john emeigh on November 18, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Dems say that America is a racist place, full of problems for minorities. Why then, are there so many people, of all classes and races, trying to come here? Something doesn’t add up.



  10. Jay Gibson on November 18, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    MSNBC is trash



  14. ED-209 on November 18, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    So much Democrat on Democrat shootings every weekend in Democrat run Chicago.



  15. Eb theDoc on November 18, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Thanks, Mehdi Hassan. The problems of the NRA are far older than Tim Mak describes in “Misfire”! In 1977, with Harlon Carter and Neal Knox, Wayne Lapierre took over the “Non-Profit” for the Gun Lobby (the biggest arm of the Military-Industrial Complex Ike warned us about). Ever since, in the wake of the Vietnam War, its activities have been geared towards expanding sales of near-military-grade weaponry into the.civilian sector. They’ve become central to the Repugnithug Culture Wars and the KKKlan.

    Shout out to George Floyd on 540 days of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals🖕



  17. Dean Foyle on November 18, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    “The NRAs evolution…”
    They started as a small POS, and they evolved into a large POS.



  18. TruckerExile E on November 18, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    I’m sorry but the NRA needs to be disbanded immediately, they do nothing for this country except for instigate the killing of innocent lives.



  19. Bobby Sherdan on November 18, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    Is the left-wing media going to start building the anti-gun narrative now so that the left and go after the firearms if they win in the midterms?… They won’t try anything before the midterms… But I expect some false flag shooting events



  20. truzar100 on November 18, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    it is a lie that the government wants to take your guns. go on tell me why I’m wrong



  21. E Cuyler on November 18, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    burn the nra down

  23. Christian 153 on November 18, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Remember what the Capital looked like on May 31st 2020 ??? More burning, looting, and destroying !



  24. Dave Dee on November 18, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Wayne LaPierre not only doesn’t care if you get killed by a gun, he WANTS you to get killed by guns. The more mass shootings there are, the more he can push his fear and lies to prop up _his_ profits. Wayne makes money from mass murders and he loves it.



  25. JAKE SAMUAL on November 18, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    I noticed that in the Rittenhouse case the National Guard has been called in. The Governor or whoever called in the National Guard believes that there is a good chance Rittenhouse will be found not guilty



  26. Simon Singh on November 18, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    People must understand that these people don’t care about anyone’s life is all about money these are criminals



  27. JasonDrvmz on November 18, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Shall not be infringed!!!



  28. BRANDON FJB on November 18, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Kyle Rittenhouse is a true patriot and hero ❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️



  29. Jlaudio86 on November 18, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Remember what Jesus said? “NO ONE IS GOOD”. And when he said that his saying republicans are good with a gun and Democratic’s are bad people and shouldn’t have or use a gun. 🤔 see how ignorant are the republicans lol 😂 😂😂😂😂



  30. fu cku on November 18, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    NRA dosnt go far enough when protecting gun rights. We all have the right to own fully automatic guns, we may not have a right to have them in public or even assembled. But we have that right and we need a court to respect these rights.



  31. MediaFaust on November 18, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    What stops a bad guy with a gun is an even worse guy with more firepower.



  32. Nash on November 18, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    A good guy with a gun tried to stop a bad guy with a gun, an active shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, and got shot himself. Now the bad guy with a gun, after killing 2 unarmed men and wounding another, may be acquitted by claiming self-defence.



  33. N&N's Numbers and Notes Unlimited. on November 18, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Get rid of the 2nd amendment crap. Far west saga is over. Stop this insanity. The NRA is a pro-assassination association.



  34. Apm91 on November 18, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    The liberal media is so delusional they actually think the NRA are the only people who care about gun rights lol



  35. Alph12 on November 18, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    I guess the officers and heads of the NRA are right I mean, how smart are the NRA card holders still given their money to an organization who steals their dues to buy private jets and 2K suits and they put CA down so much that they cant stop shopping in Beverly Hills. But the most eye opening thing is that the card holders don’t prove those NRA leaders wrong when they call them idiots cause they keep giving their money away.



  36. glentorn53 on November 18, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Corruption is the enemy of democracy.

  37. T MJ on November 18, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Question – if you could wave a wand and take all guns away from public ownership – such that only police and military were armed – would you? just asking…..



  38. Oppressed Speaker of truth on November 18, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Crying over guns is useless. Try a new approach. Can’t blame the NRA every time people get shot. Sorry. Those weak excuses don’t work



  39. Andy Yan on November 18, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.” Translation: “The only thing I care about, is for you to buy more guns.”



  40. John Downer on November 18, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    I thought the R in NRA stood for rifles? Why don’t they keep their noses out of small arms and military weapons? Second Amendment was written when "rifles" were single shot muskets. 18th century law for 21st century? Yikes! Duck! ✌️❤️



  41. Lee on November 18, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Dana Loesch is correct. Everything she said is true.



  42. Josef on November 18, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Less than 2% of the US population is Jewish. So why is 41% of the country’s packaged food kosher???



  43. David Keogh on November 18, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    To all american families,put a dollar amount on what you think your child’s life is worth and send it to the NRA or do you think no amount of money is a substitute for your kids and send that message to the NRA.



  44. kelperdude on November 18, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    The Democrats defunding the police is giving Americans many more reasons to arm themselves.



  45. Dawn Oceanside on November 18, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    La Pierre need$ more designer, lib California made suit$!!
    Contribute now for poor Wayne 🤡🤣🤭



  46. Gina Gina on November 18, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    America has more guns than people.



  47. Mort Snerd on November 18, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    The NRA’s job has always been to promote the sale of guns,no matter the cost to American citizens. They have hijacked and corrupted the second amendment and sportsman issues. Money is the American religion.



  48. Greg Moore on November 18, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    No Real American



  49. Dean F on November 18, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Beto O’Rourke sold more more firearms with his rhetoric than the gun lobby could dream of.
    The Left: DEFUND THE POLICE
    TURN IN YOUR GUNS



  50. ken adams on November 18, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    when did the russian money start coming into the NRA? remember Maria Butina ..russian spy caught passing money to NRA….jailed for it until drumpf gave her back to Putin, his boss….
