Good Morning America. And I was elected to represent. The citizens of Pittsburg. Harris exposing real nice. Saturation there aren't too many guns on the street we lose 93. Million Americans today gun battle. Loony left and when Donald Trump says to the world well we're gonna negotiate a better deal but that's like OJ Simpson's things don't go out and find the real. Good Monday morning welcome to broadcast it to be back with you this we start up another broadcast week. Hope things are going well. And we have in the news a number of interest in things going on the ongoing discussion. As we would expect. Results of the latest school shooting. Well doesn't content effect we delve into this a little bit yesterday were going to be. To develop this a little more today because much of what I want to talk about I want this program to be unique. In the perspectives that we offer. We have to do is go to social media you can see the same ol' stuff that I'm not. Criticizing anyone and saying speed you can see and hear the same ol' stuff over and over again much of it related to guns. Dance discussion about that the Second Amendment. Then all of these discussions. They have their place. There's an element of this that has been missed and we've talked about on this program last week but it came across a really. Really good post several days in regards gore than I'm going to share a few. Effective for those of you who may have been listening yesterday morning on Sunday morning edition this program. I hope you'll bear with me because you've already heard it. But I think it's so vitally important. As part of this conversation. This weekend and it was kind of interesting I he spent some time. In Kentucky visiting family and see it's. There's really one of those where time rare times where TV news is on the much TV news since I got out of the TV news business. I don't watch much anymore this goes to cable news then when when there's a developing story if there's something big going on. Yes I will tune in for a little while. After awhile reaches a point of you know for lack of a better way to put it it's overkill. I was really struck by end disturbed by what I saw over the weekend. And this is not criticize these young people. As much as it is. I feel sad. Authority experience tragedy. But what saddens me is the lack of discernment and seizing an understanding. By so many of our young people. And the media loves the stuff it was kind of interesting had a discussion. We is so when I was talking with then I'll probably mentioned more about this later run on the way back from Kentucky I was. Having a discussion with. An agent. Not at each and don't actually need a stout for in the NBA team sat next to me on the plane on the way back to Charlotte. And money she was asking me about was immediately a discussion about media and I we sharing with him my frustration for many years. With. What we've referred to as the news holds got to be filled with something. And I ate without mentioning the source of it I mentioned the drive by media expression and because this is what he was lamenting about how. People get so worked up about something. And then they move on to something else message you know that's what's called the drive by media. That's what unfortunately. It Dallas. Hyped this up. You know basically. Give people all levered up. They move on to something else next crisis. What can we scare people with today and much of it is driven by fear. But it saddens me to see these kids. I know they've experienced something very dramatic. And you know what they're calling for if they want. They want. Unfortunately too many of them. They want freedoms abridged. In relation to guns. So many of them they've been propaganda ice and they don't even know it. And they're calling for tougher gun laws. The students promised action. Tractor planning to head to Tallahassee Florida despite the legislatures about school safety and gun control this week. And they have school walkouts. In a march scheduled in the coming months. They mentioned Anthony Borges. It's fifteen year old kid who is continuing his recovery of four patients. Who's still in the hospital. After the massacre in park in Florida he was shot five times five times. On Sunday that he remained in a bed his face swollen his body tethered to IV and oxygen tubes. Broward county sheriff's department says fortunately he is recovering but there's a long long road ahead with more surgeries needed to. As you know this is unimaginable. Unfortunately. Unfortunately. The emotional. Tug. It's one that's really cause people. To undermine. The very foundation of our Republican our constitutional freedoms. This is why you don't make. Big decisions like this. In a crisis you don't allow these kinds of situations. To move you away from your foundations. This is unfortunately where we are as a country. This is why I've said. We've got to focus on the values and the principles. And this is one of the reasons why this been so much frustration for me not just myself but plenty of others. When we get so caught up in personalities. Because we're really not helping especially our younger people. Grasp the gravity of these very foundational issues this is not about the NRA. You see these kids and they play these clips over and over you know shame on you congressman so and so for taking money from the NRA. Is if that has anything to do within that you know picker advocacy groups. Public advocacy group for the First Amendment. That makes it possible for people to go around and promotes. The Nazis. Which in turn could lead someone who is of that mindset to go out and kill somebody. So. Is there something wrong with defending the First Amendment. And we can go down the list with all kinds of other freedoms. But this is not what people understand because they're paradigm is not an understanding or freedom at all. It's entirely lacking from the discussion. Missing wife you'll said these kids. For his part president Donald Trump was that it mar a Lagos did not golf out of respect for what it happens. He spent time according to the Washington Post asking members and is Mara Largo club about gun control issues. He asked the members about whether or not he should take an active stance on gun control laws. Also told me was closely watching the media appearances. Made by the student survivors. Also for president repeatedly spent the weekend watching television complaining about. Special counsel Robert Mueller and his rusher throw. We're gonna talk more about this and get a share of what I believe is what really needs to be addressed it. Wanamaker real difference yes we're begins in the dirt we'll talk about it and house. Straight ahead. This is still Vince Coakley radio program. 19 minutes after 10 o'clock and it's broken radio program if you. You would like to join the conversation you're welcome to do show. The evils of vetted stock whenever 890 reliving ten common since retirement planning text line. 713 your seven scrub to Jeff in Matthews good morning Jeff. Morning bench. You know wait they are we've been hearing in the media is gung gung done. I don't did not kill anybody. In Florida the guns take. I believe we've lost Jeff. Or York. Oh yes. I think what maybe happened is where we need to stay close throughout its support our. In the product is what happens to that young man or young Wal-Mart or whoever that was a sure thing. Between that time they came out of their mothers who go home. And the time they picked up by god and did go through somebody. And maybe we ought to be taking a closer look at video game. Parents are getting more involved in their life. And maybe people are to be turning video games where you can tell. Fifty people feel there are. That setup and an hour later in there until the saints are these people. Maybe you're going to be turning those into police departments as opposed to guns. Suggesting out observation they're Jeff I do appreciate your call in and it's one of things has to be. Can be looked at the context mean even there I think we have to be careful here are we're talking again about objects we are bypassing. What is of the utmost concern. And that is that it's. Growth currently talking about the human heart. The human heart. They corrupt human heart can take the most harmless of things and turn it into something dangerous team member fertilizer. You need to be reminded of that pressure cooker. Folks in English. We've got to keep remembering this. Over on the text line. Do you believe your your brother's keeper I haven't heard that a long time media is never heard that since the age of technology. You know I don't like using that phrase do you wanna do you know why don't like that phrase. Because. They killer used that phrase. I don't believe. I don't want to extract an expression or phrase from a killer. I'm not anybody's keeper. There's a lot of meaning to that that I think his. We really have to dissect and be careful about some of these things and I get the idea. But the heart of torture saying yes I do we embrace. That we have responsibilities to each other yes no question about that. Vince the line. Prior you're going on lives since 93 million people die every day am assuming from guns is that number true. Thanks for responding. A putt putt which is why it's in the open is an example of how. Liberals exaggerate the facts the facts really don't matter. Kind of crazy isn't. I had a relative up north it's been giving his opinion about gun this gun that also saying god has no part in this debate. I explained if god was in that young man's heart seventeen people would still be alive. You got their right. So the debate has remained open with god being the main focus. Some people don't get it. Yep you're absolutely right about this. Could a major part of the problem BD education itself the system of teaching division and blame as opposed the progress of unity. CNN. May as well teach school. That's what's going on isn't this where people were learning this stuff it's kind of a pop culture thing. Another person suggesting here if you want to fundamentally change the country this is exactly what you do yes this is how it works. Welder friend here Cain killed able with Iraq. Doesn't seventeen. Does that matter. Simpson killed over a thousand. In less than one day. Chris John broad of an arrest does that make him an assault weapon some moments to do harm they will find a way. We have a people problem not a gun problem brilliant. You guys are so brilliant here. The government can control guns speech where we live to we see where we go what we buy. And we with Henri generated hearts will still find a way to kill Jess. School shootings vents producers to talk about the root causes of students being motivated take violent actions against fellow students. We have to talk about the liberal culture their product and then the hypocrisy the so called anti bullying cultured liberals profess. While all the while being the bullet biggest bullies of greater society. Million. You are right. Lot of great points here in the text line lot of great points year. His headset how a young people are being so play by politicians and media it's all about survival of the fittest. I'm the person of the company of the industry. All of the eventual demise of society yet. Guns kill people pencils misspelled words Stosur bird dinner. That's really good. That is brilliant. Pentagon did not walk into the school and start shooting people. We can't continue to blame the gun and ignore these drugs are kids are being prescribed. House if you take god out of the equation. Your god given rights also vanish. Yep. Absolutely. Prince wise basis or another group not carried out mass attacks like this. I loved. I hate god forbid. God forbid. Vince whether it's fair righteous the narrative and perception remains this Republicans the party of guns therefore in favor of killing. Missing guns don't kill people people kill people simply isn't going to carry the day anymore. Yet since two crept to the human heart. Man's original enemy Lucifer the one who comes to steal and kill destroyed ignoring his influence does not solve anything the church must expose the enemy of our souls. John out of conference then Q you cannot dismiss. These spiritual element of this and I think when you have a situation like this one. I strongly believe a good part of the time you're dealing with demonic oppression if not possession. You cannot do something this. This. Ghastly. Without demonic influence. People just have excuses they are responsible for their actions it's not my fault. Is the root of the problems in this country. So much absolutely one of the issues we've been talking about as well the FBI. Which really was out to lunch and this one run out of Taylor's wants to talk about that good morning round. But yes sir I think is. The number of art this and the FBI one album in my question is you know they missed a lot of things including navy pressure cooker bomb. 9/11. A number of other. No. A situation. Where they missed the all the time. And my question is. Some. Why they're special counsel investigating this stuff now because it sure does look funny and on the talk about this that this spears he'd be a lawyer but. There is probable. And it needs to be dealt with because if they're dysfunctional and that struck a deal happen it doesn't matter if it's been done or if it's a pipe bomb or its fertilizer like you said. It did before about a mile to go on the ball and Lilly has stopped right in there and lacked. Image current ignored or whatever they did whoever. Was involved. Maybe at midcourt community block. What are some other motive behind it many are saying used to be like a perfect. Our. Involved with just about every one of these things. And it may be just what do but also would you know what we don't know about right now as to Eric. Are we don't Kabul. I'll be to come out Columbine. Event. C. Plus getting and it talked about the demonic. Yep yep and you gotta cover all of these things that drugs. And the influences it's certainly all there. More of this discussion straight ahead it's yeah we welcome your thoughts your perspectives on this stimulus. And this is still Vince Coakley radio program. 1036 the minstrel V radio program lots of blood from your perspective searing insights. Overall our text line. At 71307. Oh goodness. Don't wanna assure this one. Someone was talking about one of the possible ways to carry out. A mass killing nine get a share this. But it's you know it's scary to me again it it's an example what happens if someone has evil intent. Don't think of these things absolutely. Real. But we need to start making these people immortal in the media stop using their names and pictures on all media report sets from run. While we're hearing some truth lately from our dear techsters our culture. Is suddenly being taught to be angry lose control our schools are places. Each other you don't we were being manipulated by politics let's admit we become an angry selfish nation let's teach our students to admit it. And let's start teaching each other. Start bringing food each other's homes when there's illness for tragedy at least the kinds of things he should do to engage shouldn't. Actually you're kind of touching on where I'm gonna go with. Really the best article I have seen this entire new cycle on this particular issue gonna share this in a bit. Because it's right on the money. I hope. The new system for handling tips is not located in Washington DC your anywhere in the beltway should be in the heartland. Where people give a hoot. And they're out of the evil DC you know that's been suggested a number of times. Moving these agencies away from Washington. And perhaps the function better. And I think there's some truth to that. So Russia's big Brothers involved in their lives it's hard to believe they don't see things like this coming especially with social media these days yet and I've said this before. I think this is one of the problems with the information age you end up collecting wait too much information. More than you can ever process. And I think that's what's happening here cheered I suspect you're doing a whole lot of wild goose chases. And you're missing. Solid tips like this toward. And you don't get any more solid than the tips they were receiving on this guy. Ever since the murder of Abel by Cain with a rock burst in the center of murder in men's hearts not in the magazine of a gun that is from Phil. While you guys have some really good ones today. Really good ones here. But I wonder is so much. Of this is put on the FBI what about local law enforcement. We give from broom high school wasn't picked up by the FBI was Spartanburg county. Thank you chuck Wright says from Timothy. Well listen to. That she cementing UV. Britain's not specify with Cain and Abel. The focus wasn't really on the web at the heart problem. We're seeing the progression of sin and lawlessness. Under way for murmur correctly what is there one of the predictions about the in times. Because. Lawlessness prevails. The love of many we know what to wax cold. That's the problem. Lawlessness. Cold hearts. There's your answer. But you can also see the line need that is also connected to the fact that people in this day and age increasingly do not wanna think about god. They don't have any association or understanding about these particular areas and it's the very thing. By pushing him ouch. Is the very thing that's causing just become even more lawless and more heartless. That will continue to happen. Unless there is a trend to change that. It's really that simple. Dexter also says you wondering control go live in Venezuela or Cuba they have excellent gun control. Great recommendation. Great recommendation. Let's go out to a call from Shaw and here in Charlotte good morning shark. It's. An actual question matter they got a kid in school right the DC got Q school right. Yes okay. So don't mortgage debt call don't know even partial re a brick and all these comments about good control their pick let me say I don't care how many Gucci man. I don't care that you guys who Daschle first second and really network but it did that we can save a little help. There's there's one thing freakish stuff we get into it in the world are we all agreed to that but we know something that we can kind of just on mobile appropriate. The tragedy reboot and it always will be at seven PPQ children can people get cute and they all Borger and this particular.

But border only great Q usually got killed by district people would go on there all the annual. He I don't look I don't armor and I can't say that I would really get worked up about the type of gun if if someone kills someone close to meet. This really matter. Don't look good development don't know I didn't really matter where we can stop. That particular gun and I mean why every bite people are already people won't do that particular bill. The guy named guy what sport he went to that particular good and redundant. They don't give what do that would not just doing you know logical thinker yeah all the had a little Louis a prop wash you know we shall we don't know that. All seventy chip into one of being too cute and he don't don't don't let it all won't get to go Kart I know he's Second Amendment it would that it. It seems like. Let me ask. Here here's my question for you shot Brit you wanna get rid of the Second Amendment. No we and he mentioned you know. Amassed here here's why I asked that question shy and he can't go through end and start piecemeal. Undermining the Second Amendment and say okay we're gonna get rid of this guy and we get rid of this weapon can get rid of that weapon you know where do you stop Sean were witty stuff. What can we drop Marco bridge that's all let's talk. Hey here's what I'm saying there shot and you can't do that constitutionally. You've got to get rid the Second Amendment just blow it out. You can't tell went click I don't know I don't know a lot don't click it and it's a particularly good big advantage say OK after the day we angle to this particular gun demo is that correct you can rent it on a little over. Are some there there are some restrictions what I'm saying to you. This is what's happening our country shy and we are we are step by step. Eating away at our constitutional freedoms we are cutting away at the edges. W trying to weed we have a decent numbers say to live a much on the Puerto checked it mimics a religious group they are sick god John you've got to actually here. Don't they haven't figured Atlantic but he can't drink but we go again adjourned. You know Q almost seventeen. But he did he go in a bottle at all. When he. He couldn't talk all they. And even allowed them to come ship much on its way they're segment that I don't get around go to got haven't I don't get you can be I would never make it gets to me. What try it and who were brought out of time in this segment were up against a hard break here bit. I it sounds to me like Sean you're a category of people you just want to do something is that greatly. Did you do something they're pretty beat you don't have to screw them directly on whatever change your dukes and if you wanna dance segment to go along what do you call it safe. Jim another particular gun that can't power good Jim none ago when he had yet. We got killed seventeen think that made it quite may want to mention it but we once thought so all lately okay I'm in for good daddy never spelled that out. I don't get. I wanna get that call where moms who must not dealt with them well Laura disappears. This guy has got shot by adjustment I don't know we could restriction that's. Okay okay okay I have respect your perspective here. And you seem to this discussion goes in it's okay. Nothing wrong with the girls coming up can share with you my favorite pushed on this subject to stimulus. This is still Vince Coakley radio program. 1049 out of ensco to radio program getting your perspective on the events of the past few days and especially. Again. He raised the question how do we move away from this. Cycle of this conversation every single time we pretty much know what's La Russa going to say. We know people on the opposite side are growing say. Is there really anything else to talk about it. There were breaks new ground in the Syria Kathy here in Charlotte to morning. Peru. Taking a wait yeah. Yes they're at first I did agree wolf that fact it is secure reactionary. Got shot forward in discussion when you. Another shooting occurred so I think that there has been ongoing concern and ongoing issues that you don't think they then. Actually. A draft at the appropriate level. I outfit can agree with cheap goal that is police say different type of content not allowed. Our leader in assembling the Second Amendment if you look at the first and then that you've actually made changes throughout time. I had to change. And actually Glenn Hall. Can freedom of expression that we had how they cut backs a anti child pornography. Each and by others are that it happened after. I have to say a word. We're rolling out a whole Second Amendment. And here are my questions so Kathy. And and I'm sure you understand that this tends to happen over time. That we can begin eating away and eating away at the foundations of some these things that are in our constitution to the point where. The words themselves really don't mean anything anymore and that's that's really the concern I've bridge presented here. Because that's our history we've undermined. But the constitution actually sets. And we undermining currently understanding that lives change technology change you are. You didn't hat child pornography. 200 years to get help. It beat you can you can't just say it got a great staff to president saying well there are all the other they have to let people can do. And how they involved. Well let me give me an example what is certain what is what are the foundations. Of our constitution our founding documents protecting brought. Life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. What is technology done in the area of abortion Kathy. I don't know that is done anything. You don't think it's done anything at all. Technology has made it clear it's made it clear. Now more than ever we understand what is in that room dealt week. And yet. We still see. A significant part of our population that has absolutely no problem we have killing unborn babies in the womb. Many months. Into the pregnancy. So how is technology improved our understanding in this particular area to be able to comprehend life. Traffic. I'm just asking. And if we're not talking about technology. I don't understand me when I'm up technology as we belly now. Yes that too and they and the point that I am making TU is guess what we often think you're kind of making my point here. Because yes we figured out these wonderful ways to kill unborn babies as well. Even though the technology. Has reached a point where we conceived this baby better now than at any time in human history. Yet it doesn't matter Kathy. But what I'm saying to you in the point that that I am wrapping all this so. But the you're saying the fact that we have that technology. Shouldn't count limit who abortion. Should be clearer now than ever before but it doesn't make a difference. And why doesn't make a difference Kathy. Being AR AAR fifteen or seventeen whatever they're called. That doesn't count. I mean it's us or general from coral. We mean we mean doesn't count to. The technology. Increasing the ability. Of guns. Couldn't kill people. Guns saying that Clinton's reference design technology. Lets people understand what's gonna vote does count my. Let me ask you this though let's cut to the chase your Cathy what is the first of what is the Second Amendment for. We're right there aren't. Yes. I think it would it would base the time. At that time we eat out. Knowledge. What are they acknowledge or the way people live get that timing. Well let's here's what I wanna do and when I talk about I think what I wanna talk about cutting to the chase Kathy appoint Brian the Second Amendment is. That it is to allow. Citizens. To be a place where if their government ever got out of control. That the people would be able to retake control. Isn't that what the Second Amendment is about it's not about hunting it's not even about. It's not even about self protection this is about the people's ability. To protect themselves from oppressive government if it ever got out of control so the point I'm making you Kathy is they. Yes guns are lethal and there are you know they're very increasingly becoming lethal I get that but each. If the government. Ear corny does include your point then he should have to establish that that's why the police got there we shouldn't have (%expletive) gun. Yeah they are fifteen and that's where actually. Dealing nab in order to protect ourselves some of the carpet government. I'm not saying that a you know I'm not saying that what I'm saying is that that the actual words say. There's a right to bear arms that show what's not be infringed what do you do with that phrase Kathy. That's my question how do you get around that bridge. Hang in this setting it to be able to fight. A government what made. Overtake here right move then what you're saying is that we wish we are not allowed to have guns for hunting we're not a lot how. No I'm not saying the I'm saying good. Those things go together and in terms of understanding and force you were up against a hard break here Jeff he had do appreciate your call and discussion. But this lying. And he would you do with that shall not be infringed and in that sense it doesn't matter. What I'm using that for as long it's it's a legal purpose. This is still fiscal. Clean radio program. There were two of our broadcast be elected to a conversation. It was advantage talk like number 809 to 1110 Cummins its retirement planning Tex lines 713 through seven. Quickly get some of your calls but also a lot of share with you something that has really been well received post this and social media on. On the number social media pages that I am connected with and the response has been frankly extraordinary and I noticed a number of people have shared this. We will post this on one of 63 W or. WBT FaceBook page. The structure John welcome. John are you there. Going once. Going twice. I believe John has disappeared. Totally he'd hold on just a little bit longer. Just a bit longer. I wanna go into this post is this is. Absolutely vital. For us to understand. It's piece by rob Myers. And it's called there's a way to stop mass shootings and you won't like it. We actually Jon back with its let's. Take this call from John before you go into details about this good morning sir. Events that's excellent take a quick comment. Concern and comic you've previous caller made about it and a particular type arrival. Take advantage that the thing is the airbag as the go of her cup mobile open. There's a fine weapon needed some of these. Is what suicide. Double on books is not 31 countless slug and the you have. You can produce and that's our pro was with different weapons. You know bam optical wife rifles not quite make it disappear. There's handguns hold up eighteen rounds to give a crowded. Suburban type situation like here. It almost doesn't matter what type of weapon it is what captain about around the can be put out and given that our. I don't know what you've I wanna be shot. With anything. No no and does. I'm just saying that I think bad guys you know who they are they're open and their guns was so different type of weapon. And apparently a certain if they're not always they might find a way to get it anyway. Exactly exactly but on the other hand if there's ever got over. A long time gun owner I had no problem with some of the law's been adjusted in one particular. Maybe daisies would CA stood by a long done put would be a rifle shotgun from the eighteen to 21. Maybe that would help would prevent this the particle field. Was speaking your older look stupid don't go and English but. Or hey let's talk about this moment the John. There was this a concern of ours thirty years ago. Well thank and why nots. Here are grew open now where you'd. He got some little shotguns in their truck door yeah on the season nobody doubles that look what the current. Yet is uninteresting this this ought to tell us everything we need to know should that. This is not about the weaponry. It's not the weapons that are so much changed its policies and it. He is it is I've raised Forsythe and their quality let's say thirty year rate right now one that does the military reward. Lot of support kids out there a lot of kids with no direction lot of kids who sat on the slope a lot to parents. You know work to careers and played video games I mean look at these look at look at involved on the moon look at the video games. I just as they can go mobile that is the real lack of well. It's surfer. God family country and indeed exist in raised. Haphazardly. In these years too much free time than. Again the mental illness thing is an issue. And move they talk about. A background check Mecklenburg County. If he's good about permit that product armed that. They did do background checks it takes up the ninety days to get it back in the and they run it through the book gospels systems. Maybe that he's being nationalized. Assuming actors out there. Did you know immediately everybody wants to jump on the gun itself and you know or they greeted. You know. Hate to you to cliche. You know people killed you know that it is gunned that they use and as is the avenues to. Is that. Just take you could you conveyance certain things that there's just there's too many around the net of the spear. Yep you're actually read about it John now. Another John waiting on the line as well good morning welcome mr. The lord's been. I keep hearing. Repeatedly people point to technology. In order. The advancement weaponry that little cruel back in the cavity in the market reform. That that progression. Well many generations of changes right. Yeah exactly and in that it took it to them it's just another version locker room for them to. A look at the only thing but the real problem and there's evidence of gun control. Going back to you know they're very easily look up on the online at seventeen under. 19801984. Goes Biden introduced the go to law school. Cited in the law breaker Greek food. 1980 or Bill Clinton then amended there added to. But anyway my point is clause. Or failure as society changes. You know with the leotard to hurt too. Know where we'll have a conversation. That makes it true that as well. It's simply you know what society's changed. And then go to change also well it'll. Twenty years ago we're having people walking to school shooting yeah. Gardens or or driving cars and people you know it's obvious that the problem is people want done. Well. It it's just breaks my heart that he sees these. It's yelled at their for me put forward. And and really it's not too you know and there are to be on what Hitler. The deal would vote for the federal government to fix everything are lower. Or the math here but you know with the local government has every great ability to eagle creek ordinances. And so that the state two and two of create laws to regulate these guns but there it would it would either. Yep you're absolutely right Ted appreciate your colleague John and pace since we're on a roll here Mays well lives here from Jerry. Before get a break to get about thirty seconds here Gerri. Find out or will it sort of an odd out of bed. I had a new team and all our you know that may or. Well I don't bode well. Hand. Or are they. End that you op. Asked if you ever again in the grass. That the expect an amendment act but at the plate. You know her protect our bills that they thought it Brett is door bird. That it is that we can't just ran well but I'm glad they go. Yep yep yep and this is a greater danger now than it's ever been let me start off. Rob Mayer's article there's a way to stop mass shootings you'll like it. That's right you're not going to like it because it's going to require you to do something personally as opposed to shouting for the government. Or anyone to do something you're ready. Here it is noticed those around you who seem isolated and engage them. It got rants about this I'm watching CNN in the background here the sound of course is not up. CNN source shooter had obtained at least ten and rifles. And the other way and you know this coupled to this kid in it was it's not their child. You've probably news. And the boy already lost his mother lost his father. And they were saying. This couple knew he had cotton's. Relay. I mean they're trying to throw this couple under the bus every ER. How many of you how many of these nit wits at CNN would take a stranger into their homes. How many of them. I daresay most of them would never do. I feel bad for the east yeah it's. This is the very thing that we encourage people do in a similar situation is that. Somebody's essentially an orphan. Mean granted. It's much older. But it's still a kid an and I think those of us who are parents we understand this. I think we have a greater understanding of our immaturity. At eighteen in nineteen and we did when we were eighteen in ninety. John is agreeing with that. And you should agreement that John and sometimes that immaturity extends well beyond eighteen and nineteen John. I've dismissed and we. So I started sharing this and get back to more of your calls a bit absolutely wanna go into this is a notice of prompt some conversation does. This goes in the broader issues than just school shootings this is society in general before he finished this. Mark put this into by Leah never nicotine stained fingers. Hungary's. Prime minister says christianity is Europe's last hope and the politicians in Brussels Berlin and Paris favoring migration of opened the way to the decline of Christian culture. In the advance Islam. Viktor Orban. Said on Sunday during his 28 annual state of the nation speech. His government will oppose efforts by the United Nations of the European Union to make migration acceptable to the world. He conjured the image of Western Europe overtaken by Muslims saying born Christians are being forced back. For most large German cities. As migrants always occupied big cities first. Or reclaim Islam would soon knock on central Europe's door from the west as well as the south. By the way Orban is going to seek a third consecutive term and in April election which staying here and and I think. Here's something I would say if I had a conversation. With mr. Orban. Artifice. You know and as a relates to the church the church has to recover its saver. Because that's what's missing. No it's great for us to talk about christianity being the last hope. It has to be practice. Has to be lived out it's not just a slogan or set of theological ideas. So rob Myers says here's their real way to stop mass shootings noticed those around you who seem isolated and engage them. Is there anything do with guns does. Or background checks. Or mental health. Here's what he says. If every one of us did this we'd have a culture that was deeply committed to ensuring no one was left lowly. And make no mistake as I've written before loneliness loneliness is what causes the shooters to lash out. People with solid connections to other people don't indiscriminately fire guns strangers. And which are thinking. That's never going to work because no one's going to make the effort to connect with a strange kid sitting by himself at lunch each state. No one's going to reach out to the cocky awkward guy work and asked him about his weekend. You're probably right and that is an absolute shame. Because I can tell you the things that are going to work in this country when it comes to stopping these heinous acts they seemed to be all anyone sets. When inevitably another person comes forward to in flickered torture pain on innocent people. One ban all guns due to the reading of the Second Amendment and the precedents established by recent Supreme Court cases this isn't going anywhere. You'd need an amendment of the constitution that will never be thirty plus states willing to overturn it never mind the multitude of good reasons for its existence. No amount of outrage will overturn it. So let's just stop. To ban all guns part two. Assuming you actually could overturn the second an outlaw every firearm in the country then you'd have to go out and get them. Famously. There are more guns than people in the US. You couldn't come close to collecting the ball further. If prohibition in the war on drugs have taught us anything it's that those intent on breaking the law going to do just that laws be stamped. Three. And scary guns like in our fifteenth. Fully auto weapons are already banned most of these shootings occur we get guess what I handgun plain and simple. And these aren't going anywhere murder is illegal. Doesn't seem to stop these individuals performing these atrocious acts. Do you think there was a ban on shotguns that would stop them. Fort keep them out of the hands of bad people felons are prohibited from owning a firearm already but let's not forget. The overwhelming majority of those smash shootings are done by criminals and they're gods were obtained legally. How can you know who's going to do something like this you can't. Five do something about mental health cool yeah. So like three psychologists visits for everyone even if you could the people that I've done this haven't been mentally ill by and large. Let's not forget medical records are private. Would you endorse mandatory psych screening for everyone and those records being sent to the government's. Maybe just those who wish to own a gun remembered not every person using gauged and a man shooting has owned the gun before they perform the act. This is a complete non starter of an issue within insane price tag that does nothing. To actually keep a person committed to violence from putting their hands on a god. And six I love this one. To some thing. That's. What you want to do something. Okay what do you have in mind I don't know but somebody needs to do stuff very. Sheer greed but what. Even Obama is at the scene in his latest speech a routine it's become. If you can't tell by this point the list there is nothing nothing the government or any other organization can do to prevent these events. You cannot effectively keep drugs out of the hands of those intent on doing drugs you can't keep beer out of the hands up high schoolers intent on getting peer. You have a huge supply of weapons everywhere and concrete. Federal law protecting those weapons you have as much like passing regulation against tornadoes it would be equally as effective. So there it is the God's honest truth no entity can do anything meaningful more that is present being presently being done now. To thwart a disaffected person who's hell bent on committing such an act by UK. You can talk to your coworker for a few minutes you can talk to the kid in your physics class that appears to be all alone you can teach your children to do the same. To make sure no one is left to fuel totally isolated because that's the breeding ground that's where the seeds are planted. Community is easy to take for granted most of us as strong family connections and healthy friendships most feel as though. They're part of a group B community religious or work related but increasingly easy for people on the edges to withdraw and it's easy for us to forget that. No it's. Comfortable forget them. Is preferred to forget that it's highly desired to forgive him and we have to change that holding a sign isn't going to do anything writing your congressman will do even less. But you can do something today. This week this month. Of people you're engaged main become lifelong friends. And they don't need to be. But he could be enough to keep someone away from the darkness and isolation needed to eventually think lashing out. Is an effective strategy for dealing with bear pain. Awesome awesome piece year by rob Myers again check it out. On the WBT FaceBook page or the 163 WRD FaceBook page and I welcome your thoughts Hollis Thomas which you think. 713 through seven the text line. So what you think of this way to stop mass shootings. Great column here by rob Myers and again I would encourage please do something for me. Read that today. And if you wanna share some big this is something unique you can put on your social media whether it's Twitter FaceBook in degree and whatever it is share this. Go to the WBT page with a 1063 W org the page on FaceBook. Read this article share. It'll spark some interest in conversation. Is unlike. Most of the dialogue that's taking place with the same stuff over and over and over yet because we can't we keep coming back to. What's changed. Its costs its people. I happen to it in a reflection of this before. And we will quickly get calls year. I'm of the school that you know people talk about Romans the book of Romans Romans one talking about this is way. The course of human nature and he has. I happen to believe that applies to societies and cultures and civilizations. I think if you look at societies that have collapsed. That book of Romans. Is a description of what's happened probably in every case. And I think that's the same thing that's happening here what is it began with it begins with people who do not want to retain god in their thinking. That's the starting place it's all downhill from there we quickly share a couple of things with you. Before you go to your calls these responses to this column that I shared with you my friend Daniel said this. Many people wanna use peer to keep others behavior in line what they blame the tools drugs guns alcoholics Cedric that they use and wanna pay and the issue with using fear and banning guns is that never changes the heart of the person fear is controlling but love will change people. More specifically God's love will change people fear that is used to control or manipulate people is evil. We overcome evil with good not more evil. You can do something reach out to those around you love the Internet to their lives suffer with them remember four things one. Good overcomes evil to people can't be forced. Three rains on the just an untested for their isn't very good no greater love than to lay down your life for a friend. I have a contrary view that I would share before Garrett calls and it's from a former coworker. I told Jewish first name you'll know where it is way. But here's what he said. I couldn't. Bet you figure out where he's coming from. I respectfully disagree with you it's no other developed country in the world has the level of gun violence and mass shootings is we have the reason plain and simple. Is our country unlike the others is flooded with guns. We grew up as a pioneer country but the attacks from the native Americans from whom we stole this confidants. Are long since passed. This is not or at least shouldn't be the wild west anymore. Still it is in large part because of the multitude of guns sadly it may be too late for this country. To do very much about it millions upon millions of guns are already in homes and cars and hidden in pockets of gun lovers all over the country. We'll take a long long time for their owners to realize most people really don't need them. I wore readily agree that some live and dangerous neighborhoods or in danger of being robbed or attacked do you. But good morning welcome to the broadcast. Our rights here. Yeah I wanted to call. I really think. We're talking about. The results of the bigger problems. The dissolution of the family. I went there who are at school but I think the flip but it's been forty years ago. And end in my class. We hit maybe two. Students this is no joke. That they had the divorced parents everybody's there were pretty much Mary you know the divorce was really just kind of frowned on and we all went to church. They're our school. The high school. Every morning restore evolve with devotion and you know what the biggest thing to our school was to be tapped for the national side. And again everybody head. Two parents. They didn't have baby. But that is her baby momma but there are a lot of different point yeah and and and the first thing did this it is. Is brought you're racist. But I'm not at any time you speak the race is now saying that your races and that's right out of the of the draw that the Democrats are playbook but the make a long story short. It's the dissolution of the family there is no family values that and I really believe that's not one of these conspiracy theories. That the government condones it ended Baja yeah because they have made some of these social programs that clear that you do not need two incomes. Family unit again he's that they you know the mother and the father both needed to work. You know it does support a family and you hit the family unit and you add up father at home. You have a mother at and they cared about where you were at 1 o'clock in the morning. You pay a third seeded forty year old. Abby at 2 o'clock in the morning the wreak Havoc dilemma he knows bought it and it goes on everywhere. Back then. If you've got in trouble school. Me and you better not let your parents. You compete you got that's when the trouble really. You know automated and yes I do. As your play is always government programs. Have gotten. People in the mindset that they are a mood. They they got their entitlements. And that they don't need. They have a father around to raise your father said that daddy government beard that he yet and they've they give you money if you are you know how Oakland. Give you food stamps. You don't need to develop all the little else. And that they can just wanted to be in the shape that were intent and the reason for that if the Democrats sitting. Love entitlement programs is because basically what they're doing. It is buying votes. Is if you do what big daddy here or did they get what we going to take care of you we're gonna would have hopefully we'll keep you wouldn't. All of the different social program and that the vote for. And the bottom line is but we will keep you pour I mean that's something you cannot forget about this in this thanks for your call buck out of Salisbury this morning we will keep you pour. Match out of Hickory grove has agreed idea here good morning. More. For your patience and. People have a lot people don't talk about being gone. Bans work so well. We should be and the flu because last I heard overheard kid died in North Carolina and honored. What does not end up on just the last you know you've read from. So they can't work you know maybe in the Asian bin. Really effective. Wouldn't you say they're matte hair appreciate your call and again providing perspective here. This is not to diminish seventeen lives snuffed out last week it's not. At all to do. But this is one of the things I think what he just said also points out how we'd lose context incredibly. Tony got about thirty seconds year. Yeah out your Blackberry. That they don't of course if it. We go continue to continue its gonna. Continue because they're they're not American anymore. People people fail to realize that America is not the land is the neat that you continue to let people. And I have America first what are the political parties are yet what you gonna get. Yep and in an advocate has to come back to us I mean we can talk about politicians all day but let's look in the Mir. Are you know we the same people we were thirty years ago forty years ago you know in terms of our overall society its values its principles. What really keeps the country together these things have been eroding. How to we figure out a way to get back where we belong. 49 minutes after looking like Vince Coakley radio program over on the tech slide 71 threes are seven. This is a generation eats tide pods. And don't know which bathroom to use it's not a gun problem. Getting back to where we blond since those the words liberals east on backwards it. Need some explaining to navigate liberals smoke in meters that this from amid terrible that part. Yeah you're absolutely right that's see where that word aggressive. You know Vince wants to take us back to the days of Fuzzy and Harry. You know why would you go back to those days anyway vents back wouldn't. You people couldn't even drink out of water fountains. Are herded folks seriously this is the way let these folks think. Banned the cellphone make people speak to each other instead of a buried head at a phone screen I was just thinking this idiot today than I was at the airport. And you know I wonder what are we doing like 1520 years ago at the airport. You ran into some that you talked to some. And I was just watching just looking around everybody had their head in the screen. It is just weird. How does the government take care of people they provide welfare for the unwed single women in prison for the finalists make deals. Sad but true man. That is so true. Vince curious what was accomplished by the assault rifle ban by Clinton. I don't know good question trump the GOP in the in our mayor exactly. What they've heard from the mainstream media their whole lives so predictable it's Alan it's harder. It's the left in the media I know that's redundant or so predictably stupid these angry kids from the Florida school being celebrated. All of the media yes it's obvious. 'cause the shooting happened at their school they have the answers and instant credibility but all the cliches their spouting. Oh that's where this is blaming drop the GOP in our. Exactly with paper from the mainstream media their whole lives too predictable they are basically feeding back what they've been hearing all these years. It's so sad it really is Spencer in Charlotte good morning. Morning. And bear with me a moment. I drove a 1963. Value out your barrel it would all be able.

Before you know it all not rightful role look like and they are predicting. So what do we do ban. We band ever and. That's where this is going I mean it's. Dated before going and and you understand this Spencer with every. One of these events that occurs. You know there's this steady drip drip drip drip of pressure. And that's ultimately where. Unfortunately we'll see some erosion continue to happen with our constitutional protection Spencer thing slow your call. Licks quickly go ultimately it's the to Jack in Charlotte good morning.

Allowed teachers to be able to Kerry did niece that we're gonna give view the opportunity to be our last caller here out of Columbia on good morning. Good morning Evan you can hear me that I got and the static on here I can't hear you I'm gonna. Reagan. If Reagan said that that was not about the is so it was all about individual and not about society and I get them up to argue. With him but. I don't see any difference in people. On the biological standpoint from 3040 years ago when it went to school with guns and gun rack in the back of the pickup truck then sued anybody. That is totally a societal breakdown we've got everybody at the victim got what allows I think the baldness disputing people with them you don't really. An individual right like Arabic and you're never wrong it selling them down the anonymous them. And it didn't vote DeWitt you have to respect for authority at every level parents separated or did Colin. Social service that the police they're afraid of losses against the car coming at a breakdown of respect absolutely a disregard for life that the nine people.

Once TV got involved radio coverage rallies etc. It was the beginning of the year and boy isn't that the truth. Yep. Vince the privileged the privileged students in the elite high school mercilessly bullied this Nicklaus crews did. Now they want to take our guns. Oh wow that's quite an indictment what you think. Have Michelle is a great day folks.
