Let's bring in cal Thomas.
B legend -- that is cal Thomas and hanging out in NORTHERN -- to ports deal but today what a beautiful place to be capped well that is indeed -- of some of the best all the.
All of the UK indeed all of the world with a great golfer Rory McIlroy.
Just concluding a 125.
Million pound deal with Nike take that Tiger Woods.
125 million not too shabby but let me let me say -- -- crime -- he cal.
The -- you can you've got some concerns about the -- the media as a whole here in the US.
-- is that the gun debate and doesn't focus on I guess cities like Chicago which have strict gun.
New -- democratic man is and yet still Havel was violence.
Major cities by the way have democratic mayors from Baltimore Washington DC Philadelphia.
These aren't the -- -- cleaners people who cling to their guns and religion as President Obama has.
That line these people these are from Romney and that John McCain territory but let let's start with a Pluto which I'm not often able to do because they don't allow me to do it.
Bill -- on CBS news last Friday became the first of the big network reporters to actually do -- report.
On how a well armed citizens have defended themselves against criminals.
We've heard the story of this woman in -- who.
Who whose husband called the police when his wife.
Called about an intruder and if she managed to defend yourself shot the -- seven times.
Protecting her children -- properties because the police couldn't get there -- time there was a video that's gone viral now -- grandma who owned a smaller grocery store.
Who fended off -- Robert trying to use dealer cash.
So kudos to bill Plante CBS for actually doing this story but where the stories on CD ABC and NBC.
Jonathan there's a presumption in much of the big media.
That morality is in the side of a gun that a guy and all on -- -- by itself.
Whether to be used for good and evil and I think this is an outgrowth of the of the sixties mentality.
People who believe that there was no accountability or responsibility.
If anything bad happen to somebody else's fault.
If you get aid it was Reagan's fault for not spending enough money on it.
If you get pray that it wasn't your fault but the government ought to provide abortion or contraceptives and advance we have an argument last year during the campaign and the media picked up on this.
Most of these people in these major cities especially Chicago are gang members most of them have criminal record.
They shouldn't be getting gotten the first place but I will be willing to bet.
That they don't walk into a gun store and fill out -- form and go through a background check these things are available on the street and you condemn them you know -- prohibition.
I mean we've had drug laws in this country for years.
The drug industry continues to go.
Human behavior cannot be controlled by itself through all this because the prisons would be -- So -- -- are doing is as somebody who.
Appears to not agree with the that the sort of proposals we just heard briefly.
I'm not in any detail from the president what would you think would be a -- move.
On gun control if anything at all.
My gun control I think politicians control would be eight -- better proper.
But look again as if he's putting the emphasis on the wrong thing I think it went upstairs and others have said of the IRA.
The guys on the head of the good guy is not something you have to worry about the government handle the bad guy is something you have to worry about.
Take Virginia where I live and I'm not here in NORTHERN IRELAND it's got a concealed carry law the media have not really picked up.
On the how of that has diminished gun violence in the state of Virginia.
Because more and more people know that if they go out and try to committed crime with a gun.
Somebody else may be -- that deter them these people who are shooting up schools and movie theaters.
They presume that nobody's going to be armed and they see it -- an easy target.
But if they knew in advance that you are going to this school is an armed guard there by going to this theater there are people who could take -- down.
That's the way to deter gun violence I wish the media would do some stories on that.
All right Cal Thomas good -- hey your passion of point of view.
