Jimmy Kimmel on School Shooting in Parkland, Florida

February 3, 2020


AS I’M SURE YOU KNOW AND FEEL, THIS IS ANOTHER VERY SAD DAY IN AMERICA.
ANOTHER SENSELESS SHOOTING. THIS TIME AT A HIGH SCHOOL IN PARKLAND, FLORIDA, WHERE A GUNMAN, A FORMER STUDENT, OPENED FIRE YESTERDAY AGAIN. 17 LIVES HAVE BEEN LOST, OVER A DOZEN HOSPITALIZED. AND OUR PRESIDENT, AS HE SHOULD, WEIGHED IN ON THE TRAGIC EVENTS THIS MORNING FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.>>WE ARE ALL JOINED TOGETHER AS ONE AMERICAN FAMILY. AND YOUR SUFFERING IS OUR BURDEN ALSO. NO CHILD, NO TEACHER, SHOULD EVER BE IN DANGER IN AN AMERICAN SCHOOL.
>>Jimmy: AGREED.>>NO PARENT SHOULD EVER HAVE TO FEAR FOR THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS WHEN THEY KISS THEM GOOD-BYE IN THE MORNING.>>Jimmy: AGREED. SO I AGREE WITH BODY THOSE STATEMENTS. AND HERE’S WHAT YOU DO TO FIX THAT, TELL YOUR BUDDIES IN CONGRESS, TELL PAUL RYAN AND MITCH McCONNELL AND MARCO RUBIO, ALL THE FAMILY MEN WHO CARE SO MUCH ABOUT THEIR COMMUNITIES, THAT WHAT WE NEED ARE LAWS, REAL LAWS, THAT DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO KEEP ASSAULT RIFLES OUT OF THE HANDS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO SHOOT OUR KIDS. GO ON TV AND TELL THEM TO DO THAT.
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] I’LL TELL YOU SOMETHING. THAT IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE COMMON SENSE YOU TOLD US YOU WERE GOING TO BRING TO THE WHITE HOUSE. IT’S TIME TO BRING IT, WE NEED IT.
TELL THESE CONGRESSMEN AND LOBBYISTS WHO INFEST THAT SWAMP YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO DRAIN, FORCE THESE ALLEGEDLY CHRISTIAN MEN AND WOMEN WHO STUFF THEIR POCKETS WITH MONEY FROM THE NRA YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR TO DO SOMETHING. NOW, NOT LATER. NOW.
AND DON’T YOU DARE LET ANYONE SAY IT’S TOO SOON TO BE TALKING ABOUT IT, BECAUSE YOU SAID IT AFTER VEGAS, YOU SAID IT AFTER SANDY HOOK, YOU SAY THAT AFTER EVERY ONE OF THESE EIGHT NOW FATAL SCHOOL SHOOTINGS WE HAD IN THIS COUNTRY THIS YEAR. CHILDREN ARE BEING MURDERED. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] DO SOMETHING. WE STILL HAVEN’T EVEN TALKED ABOUT IT. YOU STILL HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING ABOUT IT. YOU’VE LITERALLY DONE NOTHING. ACTUALLY, YOU’VE DONE WORSE THAN NOTHING. YOU LIKE TO SAY THIS IS A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE. ONE OF YOUR VERY FIRST ACTS AS PRESIDENT, MR. TRUMP, WAS TO ROLL BACK THE REGULATIONS THAT WERE DESIGNED TO KEEP FIREARMS OUT OF THE HANDS OF MENTALLY ILL.
YOU DID THAT. YOUR PARTY VOTED TO REPEAL THE MANDATES ON COVERAGE FOR MENTAL HEALTH.
SO I AGREE, THIS IS A MENTAL ILLNESS ISSUE, BECAUSE IF YOU DON’T THINK WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, YOU’RE OBVIOUSLY MENTALLY ILL. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] IT IS AMAZING TO ME THAT — [ APPLAUSE ]
IF ONE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CAUSES A CAR ACCIDENT, WE’VE GOT TO BUILD A WALL TO KEEP THE REST OF THEM OUT.
WHY ARE YOU LOOKING FOR SOLUTIONS TO THAT PROBLEM AND NOT THIS ONE? EVERY REASONABLE AMERICAN, REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT, KNOWS THAT SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE. SOMETHING. AND WE’RE NOT DOING ANYTHING. BUT GO AHEAD, I’LL LET YOU FINISH.
>>TO EVERY PARENT, TEACHER, AND CHILD WHO IS HURTING SO BADLY, WE ARE HERE FOR YOU, WHATEVER YOU NEED, WHATEVER WE CAN DO TO EASE YOUR PAIN.>>Jimmy: GREAT. OKAY. WHAT WE NEED AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO EASE OUR PAIN AND TO PREVENT FUTURE PAIN IS SOMETHING. 8 OUT OF 10 AMERICANS AGREE THAT A TEENAGER SHOULDN’T HAVE AN AR-15.
SO WHY DOES A TEENAGER LEGALLY HAVE AN AR-15? SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE, THESE GUYS FORGOT THEY WORK FOR US, NOT THE NRA. US. AND THIS TIME WE’RE NOT GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD IN PRAYER FOR TWO WEEKS. [ APPLAUSE ] UNTIL YOU GET AN ALL-CLEAR AND WE MOVE ON TO THE NEXT THING. WE’RE GOING TO MAKE SURE YOU DO SOMETHING THIS TIME. AND IF YOU AGREE WITH ME, AND MAYBE YOU DON’T, BUT IF YOU DO, HERE’S ONE WAY YOU CAN HELP. GO TO EVERYTOWN.ORG. ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED IS THERE.
YOU CAN WRITE TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND CALL THEM. IF THEY DON’T LISTEN, VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE. WHATEVER YOU DO — [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] — DO SOMETHING. BECAUSE I FOR ONE AM VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY TIRED OF THIS.>>ENTIRELY PREMATURE TO BE DISCUSSING ABOUT LEGISLATIVE SOLUTIONS, IF ANY.>>IT’S JUST NOT THE TIME TO DIVE INTO THE POLITICS AND TRY TO SCORE POLITICAL POINTS.>>I THINK ANYBODY WHO WOULD POLITICIZE THIS SHOOTING SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.>>THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO HAVE THE DISCUSSION, AND IT’S FRANKLY I THINK INSULTING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC RIGHT NOW TO TRY TO POLITICIZE SOMETHING.>>THE REACTION OF DEMOCRATS TO ANY TRAGEDY IS TO TRY TO POLITICIZE IT.>>I’M MORE THAN HAPPY TO TALK ABOUT THIS IN A FEW DAYS. RIGHT NOW IS NOT THE TIME.>>THERE’S A TIME AND PLACE FOR A POLITICAL DEBATE. BUT NOW IS THE TIME TO UNITE AS A COUNTRY.>>THIS ISN’T A GUNS SITUATION. WE COULD GO INTO IT BUT IT’S A

    Trump can not be a one man army if he says I want to limit gun availability in the US it has to go through Congress and that law will go against the 2nd amendment and if it does happen that weapon smuggling will be a problem then the government cant control it and then they cant trace back the weapons they use making the situation worse. Leave the second amendment alone, if we adjust it will make things worse I promise you that.

    It's like drunk driving. Should we ban cars because of drunk drivers? I don't know, we might as well if we're gonna ban guns because of mentally ill people. Tbh tho, mentally ill people shouldn't have a gun, but that doesn't mean nobody could have a gun. Quite frankly tho, a lot of guns come through the southern border, so that wall would help your cause.

    Why don’t you ban mass shootings? The gun didn’t do the killing. The person behind it did. That guy could’ve ran hundreds of people over with a vehicle. Could’ve planted bombs. It’s only a problem when it’s a gun. What about the Boston marathon bombing? I don’t hear anyone trying to ban pressure cookers. You want my gun? Come get it and from the millions of veterans.

    If YOU aren't crying, or at least seriously emotionally impacted, about a bunch of kids being shot to death at their school, something is wrong with YOU. And what do you expect him to do, people? Stand there and crack a bunch of jokes and ignore the fact that 17 kids got shot to death at their school? THAT would be wrong. He's using his platform to call attention to a serious problem that we have in this country, and good on him for doing so. If you don't like it, turn off the video and go back to your Fox News or Infowars or whatever bubble so you can be comfy and content in not having to deal with reality.

    @JimmyKimmel your concern and sadness is obviously real and sincere. Your tears are justified and your words are understood. But, mental illness doesn't not concretely demand that you will be violent. Nor does it demand that you are less than the best kind of human. It goes beyond mental health and strict gun laws. We as a country have to join together to fight this horrid epidemic. And casting blame at one man or one party will do us no good. The blame lies within us all. Collectively. As a nation we have failed our children. God bless you Jimmy, I wanted to just hug you as you held back the emotion that wanted to come out, don't fight it…let it out ❤ and God Bless America 🙏
