Is that a shame that we couldn't have this argument where this conversation.
Sooner because people keep saying we can never talk about the -- after a tragedy is now the time to be talking about it.
Natalie the type to be talking about it the an area that was just hope that he -- released defer -- discussion until people.
The emotions of the moment -- forget about what happened and -- the extent of the you know they can prevail now what exactly that time -- -- that the attention is focused on the consequences of our ridiculous policy.
-- to get the sense and even some Republicans and even some conservative Democrat like Joseph Manchin of West Virginia.
Are now gonna change their views and perhaps -- more amenable to legislation might not have been opened to would just a couple of weeks ago.
Well I certainly think -- I mean -- the question is whether enough well.
And certainly we've seen some of the more conservative Democrats.
Aren't changing attitudes are -- -- the Republicans -- And has the president been forceful enough on the issue issue for your.
In your -- your opinion.
Well until now he's sort of avoid being too but.
I think I hope and I believe -- -- -- -- some very forcefully supportive of this.
What specifically do you want to see done.
What -- number of things certainly these specifically done that would -- a long way to.
Changing this city we have to put in -- context.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- A media -- -- a maniac detected elementary school in China.
We haven't really heard about this much because -- -- with a night.
22 children were injured nobody was killed because he didn't have what kind of weaponry they had here.
And and that's the real question is does that -- guns don't kill people people kill people people with -- -- You know -- so that -- though I mean there's always going to be somebody like this who gets guns because his mother had guns or is able to get access.
There's always sadly going to be this kind of tragedy no matter what we do correct.
You -- yes.
To some extent but we think greatly reduce it to the United States -- as the lions here is more than half of all the mass shootings of the world.
-- fifteen times.
More likely to that's civil in this participated in jeopardy good here as any other country in the world.
Germany at a 158 that people killed with guns -- -- -- simply because I think that the 101000 giving here.
Why do you think it is in this country we have this kind of attitude and he's got a gun laws and is so supposedly civilized nation.
Well I don't know I I think it probably goes back to our history in the -- wild west.
What the question.
Question -- why this happened or the question is where we haven't done something about it what we can do now.
What we can do it it's change and obviously.
We must have and we had been established to provide full background checks anyway getting we have that.
With these huge gun show exceptions to get really good two exceptions but it doesn't show any with a look at the Biden no background checked.
He could be a -- A person with no mental instability.
It doesn't matter.
Well we have two -- prohibit the -- -- assault rifles citizens of the that he weapons capable of shooting of having a -- put in the that -- more than ten.
Ten rounds of that -- we should -- in those.
Those -- how to make high -- I.
Like that -- -- Agassi.
Into the Q and possibly can we should have legislation and -- trafficking to say that don't -- -- would look they want done about anybody.
Those sports cities to buy factory goods in the time.
We did -- Micro stamping you know folks who have been -- she can Trace it but certainly.
That is the key ones the a good -- exception to abandon missile weapons to the -- high velocity and high capacity magazines if we did those three things.
The number of people killed -- physical been drastically.
And instantaneous background check.
Well we should do to try to do that but I don't of these do these previously.
Obviously from that electronic records -- everybody because it's.
But you know we can't -- years ago -- five day waiting period to enable -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I guess so ensure there should there be.
Certain waiting period should should be longer than five days should that.
It should be -- -- would be able to background -- There's an incident you know sort of spent more money in this so that the national database -- -- -- -- -- but it doesn't really matter what that is.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What about the mental health component somebody for example -- a history of certain kind of mental health issues.
And I know it's a sensitive issue for a lot of people do we keep them do we keep guns away from.
I don't think that's that's sensitivity that that that that's obvious he don't allow people within the -- Or or or or or courtroom people you know and other terrorist watch -- store or people who committed.
Six parents or people it would -- with mental health problems to fight to the to -- period.
I would do the question is putting enforce that they we come back interest to get a really good so that and activists -- waiting periods but that's.
But that you shouldn't allow people who are mentally unstable to have guns is obvious.
We -- -- New York congressman Jerry Nadler has even been talk of and leave for example former Seattle police chief is even said we should rewrite or repeal the Second Amendment.
Does that too drastic for you.
Don't -- too drastic to me.
You know these sensitive and it was written.
At a time when everybody's been every adult male was considered the -- with a -- and you wanted to.
Make sure that the militia was available but everybody -- -- -- picture.
Would need it.
It's complete the -- irrelevant now.
Just to believe it's the National Guard is busted you don't -- -- -- you have sixteen.
I had no I would have no problem -- the sentiment of the but it's not necessary.
-- It's not necessary it would take a lot.
-- to appeal without the troops detained until that the constitution takes it to visibility to have.
-- -- majority -- state legislatures.
I would certainly support it but that's not gonna happen so fast we can.
But two very effective things to really reduce the gun violence tremendously without going to -- you know without the without.
Going to do that extent to which would be very difficult may not be pragmatic plenty.
-- to do.
But in your opinion does -- Second Amendment do you believe it.
Guarantees everyone the right to have a -- doesn't really pertain to militia I know for years since Malloy decision it surely been.
Believe it it really does give us individual -- but I really question whether that.
Well I I think the Supreme Court is misinterpreted the Second Amendment but that's not really the question the Supreme Court has interpreted as an individual right to arms.
But no right is is without limits.
We will have rights and certain things but there are limited to we have free speech rights but he can't quite firing of grand theater.
We can certainly there's no question that under the constitution of -- that -- even under the Supreme Court.
They can regulate.
The right to have a -- the right to bear -- I don't think any would have questioned the constitutionality.
Doing things that equipment what do.
I don't know that depends -- in this strong leadership in the present which I think we're doing to get the next few months.
And a few -- -- -- And it depends oppression and congress from from the people I hope.
We will at the very least stupid and so weapons then there's the been.
Are -- volume.
You know I -- -- -- clips.
Can really -- and control it's certainly gotten special section to background checks.
-- -- You know assault rifles or thirty you have the ammunition clips.
-- pretty legitimate purpose their only purpose is to kill people and attacked anyone like the NRA.
Who this uses his Second Amendment and that and says that -- -- any proposal.
Regulate -- in this.
It's gonna take your guns away the Syrian neighbor of manslaughter which they are doing you know.
Eleven years ago in my district Qaeda.
Attacked the world trade -- and killed 3000 people.
We went to war visited the United States went to war as a result of -- 101000.
People a year are killed in this country.
Because of the -- Of -- of guns and because of the lack of regulation of proper balance we should go to war.
The leadership of the NRA that is that is enabling desperate in this country.
