    Trevor Reacts to the El Paso & Dayton Shootings | The Daily Show

    – I really am fascinated by some of the conversations people have post-mass shootings in America. One of the more interesting ones for me was a tweet that has drawn quite a bit of backlash from Neil deGrasse Tyson. I don’t know if you saw this. He tweeted and said something about mass shootings and was really insensitive and people were do angry that he was trending. And like if you’re trending and there’s been two mass shootings, like you (beep) up. (nervous laughter) And basically, the tweet was about like scale or like how we react to the idea of people dying. He said, like in the past 48…

    Jimmy Kimmel on Mass Shooting in Las Vegas

    HERE WE ARE AGAIN IN THE AFTERMATH OF ANOTHER TERRIBLE, INEXPLICABLE, SHOCKING AND PAINFUL TRAGEDY, THIS TIME IN LAS VEGAS. WHICH HAPPENS TO BE MY HOME TOWN AND CLETO’S HOMETOWN AND CLETO SR.’S HOMETOWN. AS YOU KNOW, 59 PEOPLE ARE DEAD. HUNDREDS ARE WOUNDED IN WHAT THEY SAY WAS THE DEADLIEST MASS SHOOTING IN MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY COMING ABOUT 1 1/2 YEARS AFTER THE PREVIOUS DEADLIEST MASS SHOOTING IN MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY, IN ORLANDO, WHERE 49 PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES. OF COURSE, WE PRAY FOR THE VICTIMS AND FOR THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS, AND WE WONDER WHY, EVEN THOUGH THERE’S PROBABLY NO WAY TO EVER KNOW WHY A HUMAN BEING…

    Tucker: Assault weapons ban will not stop mass killings

    ♪ ♪>>Tucker: WELL, THE MASSACRE IN PARKLAND, FLORIDA, HAS NOT SUPPOSEDLY SPARKED A NEW PUSH ON THE LEFT TO TAKE GUNS AWAY FROM AMERICAN CITIZENS. IN THE NEW CALL IS FOR A BAN ON SO-CALLED ASSAULT RIFLES, A AND PRECISE TERM THAT INCLUDES AR-15s. FANS OF ANY TYPE ARE NOT POPULAR, BUT MANY ARE UPSET THAT IF IT PROMISED TO SAVE LIVES? WOULD AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN AND PREVENT FUTURE SHOOTINGS? THAT IS THE KEY QUESTION. LUCKILY WE DO NOT NEED TO GUESS ON THE ANSWER. WE ALREADY HAD AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN FOR TEN YEARS STARTING IN 1994. THAT LAW WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN MANDATED A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF…

    David Brooks and Jonathan Capehart on Trump’s mass shooting response

    AMNA NAWAZ: We’re now nearly a week on from the two tragedies in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. But the grave questions that have been raised in the aftermath remain, and likely will remain for some time. How, if at all, will American politics and American society respond? That brings us to Brooks and Capehart. That’s New York Times columnist David Brooks and Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart. Mark Shields is away this week. Welcome to you both. Thanks for being here. Let’s jump into the big topic for this week. Obviously, gun violence was a big topic of conversation. I want to go right to a poll. We…

    Opinion | President Trump lacks the courage to act on gun reform

    -Frankly, we need intelligent background checks, okay? This isn’t a question of NRA, Republican or Democrat. I will tell you spoke to Mitch McConnell yesterday. He’s totally on board. We don’t want insane people, mentally ill people, bad people, dangerous people. We don’t want guns in the hands of the wrong people. -We can confirm at least 41 spent shell casings from his weapon. -It was a fraction of his firepower. Police Chief Richard Biehl said Betts may have had as many as 250 rounds of ammunition, plus a shotgun in his car. -This bill is just incredibly popular, and people want it now. They want something now. -Well, Congress…
