Lawmakers -- Republican and one Democrat announced an agreement today that would expand background checks for guns.
This is West Virginia Democrat Joseph mansion and Pennsylvania Republican Pat -- Explaining the deal that earlier to back.
If expanding background checks to include gun shows and Internet sales.
Can reduce the likelihood of criminals and mentally ill people from getting guns and we can do if in a fashion that does not infringe on the Second Amendment Rights of law abiding citizens.
And we should do it.
But basically you're going to go to a gun show you should be subjected the same as if you want to eventual.
If you're going to go online you should be the same as if you bought the gun across the line say aren't.
But Vice President Biden it's not helping -- a bipartisan tone by comparing gun rights activist to.
The black helicopter crowd.
Now the NRA.
Is engaging in the campaign which is I'm not an accustomed to -- information.
To try to scare people -- say quote we -- the federal government.
Want to put every -- private firearms transaction.
Right under the thumb of the federal government.
And keep all those names in a massive federal -- Kind of scared me it.
Black helicopter crowd really is upset.
-- Greg what do you think how.
Racist is he -- -- helicopters.
Why do they have to be black -- he insinuating that black helicopters are crazy because they're black.
But I embraced him and Obama looked up for this a problem with a gun control discussion if you disagree with.
A liberal on gun control they say you want more decades.
Can't we just explain that we people don't want people to die -- focus on the policy they decide whether or not the policy works.
We know this for a fact.
-- stole those guns from his mom when he killed those kids that background check would not have stopped that two things would sorry my young.
Two things would -- stopped him institutionalization.
You should have been put away.
The second thing if he got there -- a bullet to the -- those with a two things that you should care about the vulnerability of schools in keeping crazy people off the streets.
I admire this cut you know then trying to get something done but I don't see how this stops that sort of thing like that I've ever.
Didn't it first of all I think -- -- -- line is this particular provision is not gun control.
It's not taking guns away is it looking -- where there was a big loophole in the loophole was gun sales and Internet sales.
All we're doing here and that what they're proposing is to expand current checks there's not a joke was exactly right does that have been a big registry and -- -- the NRA is never had a statement on this stuff -- -- accurate you know they are they are scare artists and their thugs and they.
A lot of the column now let's not call names I guess the point that it just making -- to have a debate about there and I talk about in the next segment.
That you'll -- a -- gun control -- people cuts are calling each other names what.
-- do I coordinate so that only in our active site.
I just said that they drive me crazy but I do right we should have the debate ended except for the NRA everybody had given the names.
What I call the Bob is stripping it.
And stripping his giving Americans of their second and then there -- -- that you Nana and not a man out but now you Eric yeah.
So Greg points out correctly that nothing in need to be mentioned.
Nor Harry Reid bill would say the new town or the next and it's not so let's get beyond next time we are so close to -- bat background check.
In this form being a national registry it -- on knocking on the door to a national registry wanting different is.
If I give my gun to my son that is the only -- -- that doesn't require that your current check of the wall our national I do here here's my problem I stand firm on the second -- I think it's written properly.
We should we should uphold it.
I think Pat Toomey is wrong for being a -- Republican in this respect I think he'll lose a lot of support going forward -- up for reelection in sixteen.
I'd I'd -- he's gonna have a tough time what -- -- -- -- but I think what's -- the Second Amendment president doesn't sit -- of course it -- -- but you cannot make.
Having not you guys are having -- an argument.
About something that would not have dealt with the problem that President Obama setting mind to deal with that but on that -- I'm the mental health -- I asked my thing Kimberly.
Things Biden said it is the and he makes fun the black helicopter -- -- remember very well that it was the last that went crazy.
Thinking about terrorists being listened to -- there is a phone call.
Between an American and it's on American -- are terrorists in American and Americans on somebody overseas they went the Zurich.
And they almost for us crippled intelligence program actually took away one of our best angles so who that -- in fear mongering.
Well that's what he's doing right here -- he's not as Shane -- unabashedly doing it he's standing in front of everybody and the calling names spotted them so bizarrely the I -- a and -- doesn't I didn't tactic because they don't want to debate on the actual merits.
Would go most of what they're doing here today that would have changed the outcome in new talent and you look at the specific facts and circumstances they have to deal with the mental health issues.
Why don't you spend your time and political capital on something that might actually produced a different and it's all seeds can -- protect children in schools.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And to -- is agreeing that you would think that the gun control -- was almost finished it's not the case.
The Democrats are about to have to take a series of votes.
On several different amendments and that assists in the senate you know what the house is going to do in the meantime.
Phones are ringing off the hook -- that you -- do this so how hard is it legislatively for them try to get something that.
All it's going to be it's -- this is a long haul but there will be back ranchers -- you -- the other things that fall by the -- that the ban on the beauty LR background checks are a bit more -- about additional background checks in the hands of of gun sellers who lives but leave that aside.
I think that they get to the house I can't imagine how though it's going to be a conference.
Would because the house argument were near this and why and by the way Biden is not talking about black that he was talk about the NR eight.
And I went yellow -- Discussion on the ground and the black talent autograph I don't think it was it's -- -- the violence and in video games in Hollywood at the white whether that would I mean.
Looked at the Democrat the Democrats kind of want it both ways they want restrictions but they don't want tough sentencing and are also scared to death.
Which do way more energy and their weapons that projection.
I actually think that they that if they can fill some of the holes.
I'm not so sure how much changes were done here on the online background checks or the guys are the gun shows because most of those guys are licensed merchant that -- -- I'm not really sure.
What happened but I want to get to this point that that the fact is.
Why are they not focusing on gang violence and handguns because -- scared of being perceived as racist and -- so they stick to that they stick to the rightful.
Rather than the handgun the other thing to it that I will quote the Rahm Emanuel never let a crisis go to waste.
When these tragedies happen you rely on emotions instead of facts.
And when the dust settles you end up with a symbolic law that it back and protects you less than before.
Leaving crazies on the street right -- kids less protected we think about the gun free zone somebody -- a gun free zone was a great idea when it was just it.
Well I -- -- that guy that it's a great I have yeah Augusta says it was through its regular Baghdad that we're about to go one thing why do you always have to go when I'm talking.
Because fighters on the -- that's -- resolved as economist professor.
I had the whole -- that went funding -- -- there is one thing that the administration could support that's -- Gramm's bill that would require.
Any sort of mental health peace to be sentenced in the federal register I don't know why they're not doing I think that they would rather.
For prevent Lindsey Graham from -- and wind and right.
