Judy Miller we'll now take me tosses for my bias of a gun control.
Judy what what he says what do you make of the the media debate on this now I think it -- I think we'll held off for a couple of days as -- have to you to break down just that the tragedy itself into -- to focus on that but then president weighing in yesterday -- governor Romney to some extent has the media handling the gun control debate in the wake of Aurora.
Well the problem is -- and a lot of people did not hold off -- kind of rushed into either print to our broadcast.
With things that probably shouldn't have been on the air and let's talk about Brian Ross on -- -- see.
Who is kind of the egregious example of -- week you have someone identifying.
Aide James Holmes they said who need be so -- ended with the Tea Party.
Turned out that the 53 year old former law enforcement officer James Holmes was not amused right you know his.
One would think he may have a good legal case yeah.
Absolutely although it and we should point Brian Ross said this is ABC news said chief investigative correspondent very good.
Reporting in general but he did -- to -- and with something that perhaps fit a narrative.
Yes and you have to ask where are the editors which is always the question you ask.
You know everybody there's such pressure to get information that you have out first that.
Present time is whether or not the information is correct gets lost in the kind of race to the front line.
But there were also things personal opinions being aired by people have a right to air them because.
You know they are commentators and we're talking about your country fellow -- piers Morgan who said he -- out.
You know when is America going to do something about it's -- lines and and that of course triggered a barrage of comment now.
Curious mode and I've heard of him he -- -- sky around sunrise CNN network of one of the you know if I have to say I have to say I'm sitting here talking about them -- its -- But -- when -- when I listen appears more than who shall we say has a slight.
It's what's the word.
Air of arrogance perhaps let -- in the -- -- -- -- but I listen to him.
-- authorities had an uneasy nightly show on that public cable network.
Americans in his British -- and it -- stick in the -- or a little bit I mean well.
I think that's you know you can either excused piers Morgan by saying oh he's British and referee has a different that's an excuse for everybody I'm -- -- that's why.
Or you can say why is someone British talking about what we -- should do here in America.
I -- stone who wrote it really interesting piece he is a legal scholarly for the Huffington Post pointed out.
That this is yet another example of American exceptional heroism that in fact while most countries of the world.
It became democracies after United States had been influenced by or adopted the American constitution.
For its own constitution this is the one area in which they totally.
Disagreed with Americans they do not permit.
Their citizens to have gotten inside I'm -- and I.
I think I -- crescent point the other day.
Judith and I -- I haven't checked it sent myself but.
We were essentially wrote the Japanese constitution off to World War II this week and we wrote -- to that constitution nobody who have any rocket to bear any -- What's -- look -- gas again another and -- -- I know -- crime in the end Japan the ascent of hypocritical.
Doubles tendered -- but but let's I'd truth in advertising here I wrote a piece.
For the Daily Beast.
A 24 hours after the episode after -- cool down a level.
I saying you know that I remember a time when all American ex presidents have presidents they were at the time.
And -- some form of gun control especially the distinction you made earlier.
Between having -- handgun.
Or something to protect your family went right and an assault weapon.
We had in fact ten years between 1994 and 2004.
When those weapons presentations assault weapons yes absolutely and it was permitted to expire this sunset -- write legislation sunset it in 2004.
And since then there have been no restrictions and we have had a number of rampages since than it is true.
That the overall level of gun violence and crime does not seem to be directly correlated.
With weapons but the -- malady is right that is you can simply kill more people yes with an assault what you know I do not understand as I wrote in my piece why you don't get a number of foreign president's former president.
Legislation like that at the time standing up and rolling up on both the president and the man who wants to replace him.
To re institute that -- seems everybody's.
Head of the NRA and its some votes inspiring how are Elsie you're not and I'm not -- I think -- Fox News we can have a debate about it which is why I like this now and for those who say you know -- had an AK 47 doesn't kill people people kill people really.
It's a lot easier to kill people -- -- -- AK 47 unions especially if you are a young person who wants to commit suicide right you haven't gotten it almost always works show all right Judy Miller Fox News contributor great debate thank you very much and I can still up on the Daily Beast I guess -- -- -- musings are always available at foxnews.com.
And all of these subjects debated of FOX News Watch every weekend Saturday's 230 and 11:30 PM eastern who -- By the -- Jon Scott who is from Denver himself so -- no doubt he will have some interest -- things to say this weekend.
On the shootings in Colorado he was -- the covering of them for the network as well to tune into thirty.
