BBC reporter warns America: ‘Break the NRA’ or there will be more mass murder

BBC host Aaron Heslehurst warned Americans that the mass murder problem will only continue if we keep allowing the National Rifle Association to control our legislation and scare people into thinking that “common sense gun control” is equal to a tyrannical government gun grab.

America has a serious problem with mass shootings, and one BBC reporter wants to help us stop them. However, his advice may be impossible to take.

On Morning Business Report, another host, Adnan Nawaz, mentioned some disturbing figures:

“There have been more mass shootings in the United States this year than there have been days this year. We’re at about 330-odd days with 350+ mass shootings. And it’s becoming far too common as far as almost any sensible person including President Obama is concerned.”

Maike Currie echoed those sentiments, saying:

“Obama has said this is not normal, this shouldn’t be considered as normal.And Hillary Clinton has said the same thing. And on her presidential campaign, gun control is actually one of the key things she’s looking at.”

She went on to lament that Clinton won’t be able to do much on the issue of guns in America because of Congress and America’s infatuation with the Second Amendment:

“The thing that everyone points to is the Second Amendment. But the Second Amendment was set up in 1789. That was a different world then and something needs to be done about this.”

Heslehurst then went on to hammer home the point that every member of Congress needs to hear, but likely won’t:

“In the last 43 years, more Americans have been shot by another American — shot and killed by another American — than all of America’s soldiers killed in wars in the last 240 years.”

“And you go where’s the priority? You talk about Congress — NRA, right? If Clinton really wants to get serious, that’s what you have to try to break, dismantle.”.

    What will it take for the US to wake up to the need for gun control? It is a free for all at the moment and the death roll is unbelievable. There is more control of car ownership than there is of gun ownership. Incredible.

    Too late there’s already mass murder been going on for over 20 years.

    The country is awash with every sort of gun and as such, tighter regulations won’t have much effect for generations

    Arms manufacturers lobby hard in DC. These lobbysts “must stop being prostitutes”, they should Not serve the “gun Masters/monsters”.

    Lol. A leftwing Brit and a Muslim talk about gun violence? Hey, the most effective way to combat gun violence would be to end Muslim immigration and visas.

    I left my gun on our kitchen table for a whole day and it never shot anyone. So we have it! It’s people who need gun control not the guns.

    NRA is already getting Christmas bonuses ready to thank the Senate/Congress for their last vote.

    Funny how that pesky second amendment was put into the Bill of Rights after all those pompous Limey pricks got kicked out of this country. Fast forward to 1940 and they were begging Americans to donate firearms to defend against an impending Nazi invasion. Now the UK is the most violent country in Europe.

    Bill Corbett-exactly…when we care about what a European thinks about how we conduct business, then you’re doing it wrong…
