So I read Obama's executive actions on guns and I noticed there was something missing.
Didn't -- task force meet with the movie industry.
I guess is the Hollywood lobby not big gun lobby that -- is the real muscle here.
As you know questions last flicks were revenge fantasies historical -- where victims murdered their oppressors to a cheering audience.
And glorious bastards one movie celebrated aren't Jews killing Nazis.
I haven't seen jango -- But I'm sure audiences weren't cheering for a national conversation.
So wet -- cool for Hollywood to embrace a fearless populist.
But if you do it's -- Still the idea is the same it's cool to fight back and -- lefties only like it if it's -- I guess they can't find Syria on a map.
Look I'm not advocating armed uprisings that too lazy I just pointing out that mocking gun owners for their suspicions concerning efforts to disarm them.
At the very same time you act in a manner to disarm them.
Kinda makes you the villain in this movie a fearless populist helps keep a government honest which may be why Eric Holder wants gun owners think our.
But we've seen this movie before with the same fate actors it doesn't end well.
And as usual Hollywood the audience gets taken whether celebrity's returned to their armed bodyguards.
And do what they really do best swap Coke dealers and hepatitis.
-- Data in this seven page executive summary the White House relegated movies to one mention.
In the last -- and I guess they called on all Americans to do more so it's not about up to us.
Can't comment you do more of what I don't watch them.
There's also -- that that was surprising to me that they didn't have anything in man and I was also -- about the shooters mother.
Was trying to get help for her son was right about the -- and and I don't see anything in these -- -- maybe I'm wrong maybe somewhere in this amorphous list there's the mental health services Medicaid plan thing must cover.
I just think that we could possibly be missing.
An opportunity to figure out a way.
To help these moms and dads who are worried that their kids have something seriously wrong with them and -- they're about to crack.
This is -- I -- I'm reading through the 23 dragging -- bit that it really logical stuff like.
Yeah -- make sure the background checks -- right in you know that this is nothing more and nothing less.
And President Obama using a tragedy again to promote an ideology he he wants to make sure that his people on the left.
Are hurt our disgust because the background because there's nothing in -- -- -- before things that he recommends congress still will never fly.
They're never gonna pass -- congress but -- You want to fly here you go Harry Reid once you vote in the senate first see if you like those first we can all see -- and goes opposite jailed for before things have recommended by my guess is.
They'll get about mean one year so we bases all taken President Obama using a -- I think -- late -- -- way you against -- do background checks.
No I'm not against background check out what we -- -- background checks already we did this across state lines we don't do very well we didn't we're not doing.
-- -- Alan -- and I'm not bringing them.
Wet -- -- the question did what he's done it by executive orders to try to tighten up.
The rules about what you're supposed to do about mental health exchange information about and then what they did it was a CDC which of course the Republican congress opted to cut their funding.
That they would now be back in -- dealing with.
What gun control I mean what gun advocacy is done to these guys who have mental illnesses.
And the senior season position -- -- -- -- dogs weren't saying is that the gun advocates are against the CDC having the money to do a study.
About what is wrong with the mental health.
-- -- -- well another another Washington study you don't need a Washington study to figure out that a lot of these killers were loners there were included in the maybe the recommendation should be as simple as if you see somebody alone on the playground is a kid.
Maybe vitamins your circle don't isolate him and not and I don't know what's -- -- sure if I was them help for a bit but.
I don't responsibility to come up with an answer I wanna come look there's I don't think there's one single answer I don't think it's an easy.
I can look at all of these things on this list and say.
I don't think this is gonna cut it to your point -- on Hollywood I never thought -- would begin a sentence like this but in the words of Rob Lowe.
I don't think that Hollywood -- that -- they should be lecturing the American people on on guns but I'd I do agree with -- I think if your.
If you're supportive of the Second Amendment or you're not -- you have the right not to be supported you should be very troubled about the way that the president is going about.
Doing because it's not gonna pass through congress it's not you know what will not body did not have the votes in the senate either that shall carry that investors got a nice to be very very troubled.
I -- Two dead monologue point or the event in the first segment -- talked about buying 23 items and then to hide the wind.
So I as I've always done this right make it to do lesson I add extra things that I was going to do anyway right but just a that -- -- -- does satisfaction of crossing something off the list.
Yeah eleven is nominate an ATF director of -- -- firearms director.
Why have to tell yourself to -- to write an executive order to tell yourself to nominate somebody should have nominated already that was a better metaphor than mine.
Well it was -- -- Make list.
The -- -- right so you feel better you include -- did you you've got include the hit also wanted to look like a really long the list and a lot of these -- African national database for some guys sitting right but tell us -- that -- -- do you think.
Guns -- you've got to register the -- -- you what about the lands that would have would have voluntarily went said you know what I think before I go to this school.
I'm gonna put my name and a gun database why not for the Colorado shouldn't have to.
Tonight at 80 they have three was because get out and all of a -- you know where I -- had argued about whether mental health and get a big part of Obama's proposal about I think this is about what.
Health let's challenge to Democrats reminded Democrats have the -- glad Harry Reid bring it up.
Bring up for about are you in -- of -- president Obama's for our recommendations.
That did pass it through the senate personal and look how strong you know it could that be interesting if he does I think he was an NRA backed.
Candidate to Obama she's naked eye out CB doesn't -- time to -- -- this side of Obama talked.
Well into next lots of this was that -- nightmare for the wizards beat back and get people talking yes -- it's oh my god it's happening on the -- didn't.
