I can the government protect us really protect us from violence that is -- subject of this evening's talking points memo.
-- Obama gave a rousing speech in Boston today saying that the city.
Would never give -- to violence and the nation will never be defeated by terrorists.
This time next here on the third Monday in this world the world bullets were in good good good Americans -- -- the run.
Had that feeling.
-- plus the.
Nice job of that speech.
But yesterday the president's tone was very different he was angry about losing the gun control legislation in the senate.
As you may know that body failed to pass gun purchase background checks five Democrats even voted against a new law.
All of them from pro -- states now why did the background checks that.
Surely it would be better criminals and in -- people we -- from buying guns every sane person knows that.
Will not keep guns out of the hands of bad people they'll buy them illegally -- -- weapons illegally.
If the president a war really serious about protecting Americans from gun violence.
He would -- gun crimes and attach a criminal justice component.
To the gun check legislation.
Here's a mr.
Obama should do.
Registering farm should be mandatory in this country and if you're caught within unregistered gun.
You go to federal prisons release five years use a gun in the commission of a crime ten years.
Law abiding people with guns are not the problem.
So let's give the police.
A big advantage.
If the cops even find an unregistered gun by -- stop and -- something like that.
It's a felony.
That would take gun criminals off the streets fast.
And obviously drastically cut gun violence.
Pres Obama's gun legislation is targeted pardon upon -- law abiding people.
Not criminal holes.
And -- still reason.
He -- -- getting anyway.
Some stats to back my opinion up -- -- eleven the FBI reports nearly 8600 people were killed.
With firearms in the USA that's down 10%.
To provide perspective more than 32000.
People were killed and auto accidents.
No law is gonna stop crazy people from committing mass murder even mr.
Obama admits that.
And finally a word about terrorism.
-- attack on 9/11.
34 people have been killed by terrorists in the USA 34.
That includes Fort Hood shootings and the beltway sniper back in 2010.
-- authorities are doing a darn good job protecting us and we should all be grateful.
Bottom line the government can protected us from harm somewhat.
If it acts -- -- Smart and tough way.
This isn't perfect -- -- that but if we wanna cut violence with a crime more terrorists.
We have to -- serious side.
And find out what really works.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- With us because of the five Bob -- -- -- my point I'm sure a brilliant man like yourself about why this legislation -- get -- anywhere.
Because it's targeted as -- said -- law abiding people not to criminals.
They have -- this first thought like your idea I think it's a good idea about the written federal registration.
This bill is targeted to nobody given commits a crime with a -- does not get a gun that was not bought legally.
That's the whole problem.
We want to -- get checks should people who buy music on shows where in Virginia next to my state you can go home by seven of these guys -- the runner up from DC by seven no checks brings it back cells and on the street criminals back every single guy and they are now at a crime -- they brought.
Legally to begin right now I hate to do the spectral vision on your -- right.
I think you just perishable you know what you're not going to be a good -- will.
There's more than a hundred million guns right that's correct on the streets right so any kind of registration or anything like that is a moot point.
Because with those hundred million criminals can start a big industry.
And they can bring him in through Mexico and they can bring him in through Canada.
So let's be real.
If you attach to my component as you said you agree with the federalizing of the gun crimes.
And if you're gonna force law abiding people and many of them don't want to because they feel once -- government gets that data.
And the governments eventually gonna take their guns away that's the paranoia that's running in a right wing circus -- okay.
But I understand that paranoia why trust -- federal government.
But if you do that -- criminal component and there's a greater good involved and I believe most gun owners would say OK I don't really like the registration.
But if you're gonna put away the bad guys you I'll I'll support you didn't get narrowed up the Walt I don't I -- -- thugs over their don't know any any any kind of single gunman appears legislative NRA would would be we'd say I don't support.
Then I was they would lose.
All their power -- a source -- -- -- there they are Estrada that's what would happen -- to listen first of all these Democrats jump -- of the cowardly act in the face of the other -- NRA is not -- problems I think -- whatever and that's -- here you can talk about all you want a hundred -- -- you know agreements -- get it every single gun used to the crime in this country was bought the line I just -- a big -- right.
Given my general Conway and -- okay -- I'll tell you again but I don't want to belabor it.
If you have -- registration.
Immediately a secondary gun market will rise with so many guns in the country and on regulating -- -- coming in depth but that doesn't matter if she gets to be sold illegally.
You can't put that -- put it back in the bottle.
To use a cliche.
Are you get it you just don't want and you know I don't get it right here here's outshot the -- react out you know -- -- -- right in this profoundly regret.
We're all of these threats that -- these actual attacks dream people did in Boston.
One an eight year old -- why are we even did pretty bad ground 66.
Probably how care anymore.
We have such -- -- pulled back -- such bad.
And he would always wanted to share it.
About a header didn't work.
-- some moment -- it's.
-- It's nice -- -- has abandoned Israeli assume that I like that.
This is so ridiculous equating isn't awaiting the Boston bombing.
Whose background check what is your problem with background checks what is your probably don't have any problem -- that one instead -- happening gun shows because you're black they usually are using crime because it's useless it's.
Useless all right I'm not gonna -- you have a Toyota wanted to video -- now that I just want it I -- All -- -- I think go to Virginia they like guns legally Good Charlotte bringing the DC they usually trying to look forty would you take -- years -- that.
And I told you this a hundred million on the street are ready and the others you've -- people's houses okay where they are.
You're out shopping equating gun registration with the bombing in Boston does that make sense I -- I don't think you make sense to create anything of the bombing in Boston everybody and keep him out should they catch somebody.
And -- than these do get buried that's not a signal that's good.
I just and I don't understand sometimes dispersed on in a rhetorical question you don't have to answer -- You put forth your point of view that Virginia right and we all heard it.
I then knocked it down by saying -- -- that even if you start registration today the secondary gun market is so vast.
And so accessible because -- will come through Mexico and Kennedy in here.
That is -- make any difference -- that you'd just totally blow that offense some kind of fanned -- is secondary -- market what are you talking about the secondary doesn't that they're owned by the citizens who generally are pretty blue -- -- -- of the -- of what's gonna happen they have to be good who's gonna go steal the league knock on doors and bonds.
Secondary gun market.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Will find their way into the market value for money much fewer than there are now I don't gun shows actually made -- mistake got to go to gun show watch and they've brought guns they used illegally.
I'm Bob Beckel everybody area is budget director bad President Obama under pressure because of the Boston terrorism.
And the -- situation Ed Henry.
Tell us how -- -- on --
