WEEK.

THANK YOU.
>>>PRESIDENT TRUMP DID NOT CALL FOR ANY
NEW GUN LAWS IN HIS
ADDRESS TO THE NATION, BUT TONIGHT THERE ARE
QUESTIONS OVER HOW
EFFECTIVE THE IDEAS HE DID OFFER WOULD BE TO
STOP MASS SHOOTINGS.
LET’S GET MORE ON THAT FROM NBC’S PETE
WILLIAMS.
>>Reporter: TONIGHT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS
SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES
AND LAW ENFORCEMENT SHOULD COME UP WITH
BETTER WAYS FOR
DETECTING MASS SHOOTERS BEFORE THEY
STRIKE.
>>WE MUST DO A BETTER JOB OF IDENTIFYING AND
ACTING ON EARLY
WARNING SIGNS. >>Reporter: FORMER
FBI OFFICIALS SAID
THAT COULD MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE BUT WOULD
REQUIRE MAJOR CHANGES
IN THE LAWS PROTECTING PRIVACY AND FREE
SPEECH.
>>AS THE LAW STANDS, LAW ENFORCEMENT IS NOT
PERMITTED TO HANG OUT
IN CERTAIN CHAT ROOMS AND WEBSITES WAITING
FOR SOMEONE TO SPEAK
OF VIOLENCE. >>Reporter: ANOTHER
STEP SAYS THE
PRESIDENT, STOP THE GLORIFICATION OF
VIOLENCE THROUGH
THINGS LIKE VIDEO GAMES.
BUT MOST RESEARCHERS
SAY THERE’S VERY LITTLE EVIDENCE TO
SHOW THAT VIDEO GAMES
ACTUALLY LEAD TO VIOLENT BEHAVIOR.
PRESIDENT TRUMP IS
ALSO NOW CALLING FOR REFORMING MENTAL
HEALTH LAWS TO
IDENTIFY DISTURBED PEOPLE WHO MIGHT TURN
VIOLENT.
THE U.S. SECRET SERVICE SAYS 2/3 OF
THOSE WHO CARRIED OUT
MASS ATTACKS IN THE PAST YEAR EXPERIENCED
MENTAL HEALTH SYMPTOMS
BEFOREHAND AND NEARLY HALF HAD BEEN
DIAGNOSED WITH A
MENTAL ILLNESS. MANY MENTAL HEALTH
EXPERTS TELL US
CAREGIVERS CANNOT BE EXPECTED TO PREDICT
FUTURE VIOLENCE.
>>THERE’S NO REAL MENTAL ILLNESS
DIAGNOSIS THAT SOMEONE
CAN SAY AHAH, THAT PERSON IS GOING TO BE
MORE VIOLENT TOWARD
SOMEBODY ELSE. AND MANY OF THE MAIN
MENTAL ILLNESS
DIAGNOSIS IN FACT MAKE PEOPLE LESS LIKELY TO
ATTACK OTHER PEOPLE.
>>Reporter: BUT THERE’S BROAD SUPPORT
FOR ONE OF THE
PRESIDENT’S SUGGESTIONS, SO-CALLED
RED FLAG LAWS.
17 STATES HAVE SOME VERSION OF THE LAWS
ALLOWING COURTS TO
ORDER GUNS TAKEN AWAY FROM PEOPLE DEEMED A
DANGER TO THEMSELVES
OR OTHERS. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO
BACKGROUND CHECKS BOTH
THE PRESIDENT AND REPUBLICANS IN
CONGRESS HAVE BEEN
RELUCTANT TO REQUIRE THEM FOR ALL GUN SALES
INCLUDING AT GUN
SHOWS. LESTER.
>>THANK YOU.
AND THE PRESIDENT’S SPEECH DID LITTLE TO
QUIET THE CALLS FOR
MANY AMERICANS URGING LAWMAKERS TO TAKE NEW
ACTION TO REMOVE
ASSAULT-STYLE WEAPONS ON OUR STREETS.
FOR MORE ON THE WEAPON
OF CHOICE FOR THESE SHOOTERS, WE TURN TO
PETER ALEXANDER.
>>THOMAS McNICHOLS, P STEVEN RAMIRO, AND
ELSA, A BELOVED SCHOOL
PRINCIPAL. YOU MAY NOT KNOW THEIR
NAMES, BUT THEY ALL
HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON, ALL MURDERED
BY SHOOTERS FIRED BY
SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT RIFLES, THE SAME IN AN
OFFICE BUILDING, A
MOVIE THEATER IN AURORA, AND THE PULSE
NIGHT CLUB IN ORLANDO.
>>WE RECEIVED 49 VICTIMS THAT NIGHT,
NONE OF WHICH DID NOT
SURVIVE. >>DEVASTATING WOUNDS
THAT SMITH SAYS YOU
WOULD EXPECT TO SEE ON A BATTLEFIELD.
>>A HAND GUN MAY
CAUSE A BULLET HOLE AND A POWERFUL RIFLE
MAY CAUSE A BULLET
CHASM. >>THE SECOND
AMENDMENT GUARANTEES
THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS AND AMERICANS DO.
WE MAKE UP 4% OF THE
GLOBAL POPULATION BUT OWN 45% OF THE WORLD’S
GUNS.
GUN VIOLENCE PREVENT ADVOCATES SAY ASSAULT
WEAPONS HAVE BECOME
THE GO-TO PRODUCT. THEY SAY THE GUN
INDUSTRY NOW MARKETS
KN NOTIZATION.
MANY LAW-ABIDING
AMERICANS USE THESE GUNS EVERY DAY FOR
RECREATION AND SPORT.
BUT THOSE WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONES WORRY
HOW THEY’RE ALSO
READILY AVAILABLE TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO USE
THEM TO KILL.
DEBBIE HICKSON LOST HER HUSBAND CHRIS IN
PARKLAND TO A GUNMAN
ARMED WITH AN ASSAULT RIFLE.
>>IT SHOULDN’T HAPPEN
TO ANYBODY. AND IT KEEPS
HAPPENING.
THOSE AREN’T FOR SELF-DEFENSE.
THEY’RE FOR MURDERING
PEOPLE AND ATHAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING EVERY
DAY.
>>THE DAYTON SHOOTER FIRED 41 SHOTS IN LESS
THAN 30 SECONDS.
>>IT’S PROBLEMATIC TO HAVE THAT LEVEL OF
WEAPONRY IN A CIVILIAN
ENVIRONMENT. >>WEAPONS OF WAR
NOW HAUNTING A NATION
IN GRIEF.

  1. YOU KNOW? IT'S SAD. YOU CAN'T GO OUT FOR A BEER WITHOUT RISKING YOUR LIFE! AND YOU WANNA TAKE "MY" GUN????? I NEED IT TO DEFEND MYSELF FROM A SCHIZOPHRENIC SOCIOTY! ALL THIS VARYING INSANITY!!! ALL WITHIN THE LAST 5 YEARS!

  2. They say there's little evidence for video games encouraging violence. Video games glorify violence. If you're upset of a man speaking words that you think glorifies violence. Video games violence not just with words but with interactive game play and audio video lets take Part in virtual violence. You can't say that there's no evidence for video games and say the presidents word are to blame for vilance. What do we need to prove it??? You say words can bring violence and say that a game that is more then just words does not your just crazy

  3. Smees 'wehits' will hvae to atetnd excdinegely mnay funraels in blcak gwons utnil tehy get aaettrctd to negroes! lol

  4. Just seeing and hearing Donald Trump and Kellyanne Conway pathetically backtracking is enough to make a God-loving American vomit.

  5. This shooter was a Elizabeth Warren supporter, wanted socialism and it was not coming fast enough
    for him. That might give you a clue. And the fact that he shot his own sister is a huge clue.

  6. the opening after the preview was disgusting and not even remotely sincere. it sensationalized, and dramatized, the shootings through the insincerity of voice actor.

    El Paso is a great community. Each time I've gone there I have always noticed what a family oriented community it is. Stay hopeful and continue to have strength El Paso.

  7. So , , , the NBC News staff continue their despicable, low class effort to try and
    tie blame the horrible shooting murders on the President Of the United States.
    .
    NBC News continues it's partisan propaganda that is a stain on the traditions of American Journalism.
    Absolutely disgusting NBC News.
    .

  8. Up until now NBC Nightly news, I had respect for your shows. But tonight, you're on the Trump Derangement syndrome. It's sickening that your blaming the President for this. What about the Violence DEMOCRATS do to Republicans. LIKE LAS VEGAS! or what about Chicago killings. They're all the time and in DEMOCRAT controlled city.
    Stop blaming the President for this awful stuff….

  9. It's too bad what happened, but can we get in with the regular news? I am not trying to be disrespectful but how much more is there to tell?

  10. NATIONAL PROPAGANDA … these people are not giving us news they are giving you ,,,say it with me….P R O P A G A N D A … nbc has an agenda.. supports that agenda equals say it with me P R O P A G A N D A

  11. I trained with NRA in Florida teaching people about active shooter response, what to do to prepare/protect, sadly it's not enough😥😣

  12. stop making excuses on why he killed his sister.. omg.. stop making excuses for whitey actions… stop it… just stop… we are making a fool of ourselves… we deserve to be shot just listening to your excuses…

  13. it's like the ridiculous American News Networks playing the game that the mass shootings only happen in the USA well you better guess again last here in Canada we had a mass shooting in Toronto  on the Danforth as well as a mass Van attack on Yonge St. why ???  and this past weekend luckily those handling gun are a bad aim because they shot  17 people. Yes here in Toronto Canada NOT the USA. I'm sick of the Democrat people and their biased News Networks not pointing out what what's happening in Toronto Canada!
    @t
    @t
    @t

  14. They failed to mention that guns can also be bought online. That is something they NEED to look at because its starting to grow rapidly.

  15. Chicago does NOT fit the MSM Narrative! 7 Killed, 46 Wounded In Weekend Shootings; ‘It’s Destroying The Fiber Of Our Communities’

  18. Does Not Fit the Narrative SO, Crickets in the House of Reps. with More Mass Shootings and Stabbings in Chicago. 10 Dead! 52 Shot, 8 Fatally Over The Weekend; 2 Others Stabbed To Death

    By Eric Cox June 3, 2019 at 11:08 am Filed Under:Chicago, Crime, Eric Cox, Local TV, shootings, Weekend Shootings, Weekend Violence

  19. The fact is we have no way of knowing who or when or why the next shooting will happen, only that it will happen again … The second amendment was put in place to protect people, not guns.

  20. I was shot two times by an active shooter when I was 19. I still live with one of the bullets in me, forever. And am unable to work in the industry in which I was trained. Now unemployed. Once the cameras go away, the reporters fade away…you’re all alone…except for the memories and the injuries. Forgotten but alive. I pray for those survivors and their families. Not just for now, but down the road.

  21. Take away the Assault – styled guns hopefully they came a law about Assault – styled guns all we need are normal guns… And if people end up selling them when they know about the law should be put in jail for life

  22. PS : Obama has NO ROOM TO CRITICISE ! He had dealings in his younger years with KNOWN TERRORISTS & ANTI-AMERICAN GROUPS !!! So get out of here with his CRAPPY OPINION !!!

  23. ive been playing video games since i was 5yrs and you dont see me going on a rampage.No matter how many laws go in effect this aint going to stop,stop trying to set more laws up cause its not going to work.the more laws the more easier to get access.People hate on each other or pick on people, those people go crazy and the solution is more gun laws?

  24. Why are the news so late??? They are supposed to be nightly news, sometimes they put them up in the morning like wtf

  25. Why when white males do mass killings, they are taken alive? But a Black man can't buy pass a stop sign, or make an illegal lane change or sell loose cigarettes, without being gunned down by cops? Amazing…no, just america
    .

  26. Media just keeps making this worse and we can't stop watching it. This only motivates more shooters. Smdh!

  27. Trump talks of how bad hate is and what is does to the soul. He would know. His soul has many murders upon it. His stupid speech. Its only fair to say, its a fake speech.

  28. They need to do something about being bullied in the schools. Take action teachers and leaders in the school districts.

  29. This is a different world ! It is lawlessness! I bet they wrote that for Trump, and forced him to say it ! He laughed at the " shoot them".
    He attacked our dark skinned Congress women and Cummings ! He started this evil. They forced him to say those words. He doesn't care !!! He's smokscreening ! Give us our money back from space force so we can put it into mental health programs ! Billions !

  30. Give us our money back from space force Trump ! So we can put those billions into the mental health system to help our people , brown , black , olive and white !

  31. The media are the contributions in many things that really happening in America.The media needs to control their behavior and big mouths, stop attacking the president so much.We all needs to work together for a better future.Politicians got it needs to do their job.Stop the hate over the president and work together for America. too much,stop talking about it and do something about it to make America a better places to live peaceful.

  32. I'd like to help and donate to the guy that makes those crosses. How can he do all those and afford to live. Can anyone help get his info?

  33. Family and Friends need to enjoy one another seriously be alert and stay safe . Prayer's & Sympathy to all the families from past shooting's up to now. The evil has to STOP in the name of Humanity and Peace !

  34. Guns arent the problem. Mentally unstable people whose family and friends know that they're unstable and don't drag them to go get help or call the authorities to make them get help, are the problem.

  35. Christianity; the easiest way to subdue a population that would otherwise rise up against those in power whom are profanely guilty of dereliction duty.

  36. We have a corrupted guberment full of sociopaths, socialist traders that are out to destroy this country from within. They have sold out this country time and time again. Turned it's citizens against each other in order to keep them from seeing the real truth. It's time for a revolution and to bring this country back to its original constitution.

  37. Modified to make it more deadly? Stfu, changing out features or shortening the barrel doesnt make it more deadly.

  38. The words what you said today that is just the person you is imagine. He describe just the kind of person he is can you imagine he is talking just about his dam self

  39. This is exactly why I carry every time I leave the house. Two wrongs don’t make a right, but I’m not going to go down without being able to defend myself first.
