[ screaming ] >> commies!
>> he has released a long tweet using twit longer. >> yes. >> obviously a lot of people backed his argument and then some just called him dumber than george castanza. >> he said it is a military weapon. why should it be in non-military hands? >> yeah, the only function that gun has is to kill people. >> yeah jason alexander warned of absolutist. who swear allegiance to unelected officials -- grover -- to obstruct every act of -- he goes on to equate these absolutist as
terrorists, as they believe, quote, they hold the only truth. he finishes by saying there is no excuse for the lack of regulation surrounding assault rifles, and while stricter laws will not prevent every tragedy, we have certainly not ours any favors -- >> don't call me a terrorist, i'll kill you! >> how about this guy in court yesterday! [ screaming ] >> wow. yeah. we were watching it -- is he on something or off something? >> yeah. he was dazed -- his head was bobbing, his eyes were opening and closing -- >> nobody in the court system could say whether he was medicated or not, but by looking at him you could kind of tell he was out of it. >> yeah, something going on
there. >> his family -- their attorney said yes they do stand by him he was their son -- he mom tried to correct the statement when she said you got the right person, but she said she was referring to herself. and when they were told there was no audio recording she corrected the statement. the president yesterday talking about the tragedy -- >> i hope over the next several days, next several weeks and months, we all reflect on how we can do something some of the senseless violence that ends up marring this country. >> so senator lautenberg of jersey is reintroducing the assault weapons ban -- >> it's not happening, yeah. >> senator finestein yesterday.
>> it's the big clips, 100 rounds. you cannot get to him to dislodge the gun because he can fire so rapidly and so many bullets. >> thank you. >> i would use my spiedy senses and come to action grip and i -- and -- >> seriously how many arm-chair geeks are there like the guy that just called and russell pierce. >> uh-huh. >> i would have stopped the rotation of the earth. it's like she said it best. that's part of the problem. that's why you can't disarm them. this is a military weapon. >> yep. >> senator frank lautenberg will advance legislation to ban the sale of magazines that allow more than 10 rounds of ammunition. it is likely not to go anywhere.
like the arizona shooter that hit gabby. you can't say there's no correlation at all. senator diane feinstein argued weapons of war don't belong eon the street. >> we have to come to grips with what is sold with the average person in america. these are weapons that you are only going to be using to kill people in close combat. >> she said this is a powerful weapon. this is a man who planned, went in and who was purpose was to kill as many people as she could. senator ron johnson of wisconsin. everybody gets so, like
complete would infringe on americans -- what jim constitutional rights! [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> constitutional rights that have a 100-round clip. >> you can't keep these weapons out of the hands of sick individuals, and when you try to do it, you restrict your freedom. so what, we shouldn't even try? >> yeah. wow. >> yeah, you couldn't stop hitler from invading poland. >> that's right. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> hitler had a 160 pound scrotum. >> and the right-wing will make the argument that [ inaudible ] should be armed with handguns -- >> right. sure. >> there weren't enough guns exactly. >> try using that against a tank. >> steve in missouri. welcome, steve. >> hi good morning. my previous employment i worked around the areas i would patrol,
and they did extensive training and guard-room scenarios with lights flashing, and the light bars going on in the back. just so they can go into a situation like that and take control. where a person like me if i got my conceal and carry, i have no experience in that. >> right. >> and i have no gun control at that point i'm just pointing and clicking. and if you have ever been in a room where gunfire is going off, the muzzle blast impacts your body and head in such a different way, and the acustics it just rings and rings, and i guess my point is the average person can't control their weapon in that scenario. >> steve, you make a good practical point. there is a guy that just called last hour, the russell pierces
of the world, it's because they have these high-capacity things it diminishes logically anybody's ability to disarm a guy like that. are you kidding me? you are going to disarm a guy firing 60-rounds a minute? they are defeating their own argument, aren't they? >> right. and the other thing, this guy has a mental illness, and he is going to have no problem pulling the trigger. i would have a problem pulling the trigger. >> and if you are a responsible gun owner and theater, in a dark theater, you are going to be afraid that you are going to hit someone that you shouldn't. >> absolutely right. >> people are running, screaming, confusion, smoke -- >> tear gas. >> exactly. all right. 17 minutes after the hour. much more as we roll along on
♪ >> announcer: stephanie miller. ♪ since the day i been born ♪ >> tommy was saying to jacki -- not in so many words. >> yeah. 1-800-steph-1-2 the phone number toll free from anywhere. let's go to andy in wisconsin. welcome. >> hey first of all when that guy said the solution was to stand up and eat bullets.
when [ inaudible ] called in i thought you still had him on the line. but this whole theory of more people packing heat, i'm just wondering if i jump up and pull out a gun, why do all of the other people know i'm a mass murderer or their savior. >> yeah, when the police arrive -- >> yeah, which one to you shoot? >> and there's always the white cowboy hat, black cowboy hat thing -- >> oh cleverly chosen another cowboy hat just to throw things off -- >> and the chief i trust him more than i trust that moron -- >> and carolyn mccarthy made the same point when her husband was killed, she said if you talk to police it would have been worse if more people had been armed on that train.
let's go to philip in san diego. >> good morning. looks like i'm going to be going up to l.a. on the 28th. >> hooray! see you there. >> see you there. okay. go ahead. >> and i love the fact that some of the money will be donated to the trevor project. the guy last hour, i'm really sick of these people being brave. tear gas goes off, the first reaction is to go down on the floor and crawl and stuff, and all of the speculation about the shooter, he is this he is that. there is only one thing that is certain to me. he definitely was not gay, because a gay self respecting person would not dye their hair that way. >> good point, phil. but the other point is i think -- goes to senator feinstein's point. he conducted a military operation with military equipment, the tear gas and all of that was meant to obviously
confuse and make people unable to see -- >> you can't see obviously. >> obviously. and, you know, they are right. what do you need an assault rifle for, but what blows my mind after all of these tragedies, that we have had, we have had a number of them over the years, columbine, virginia tech, the shooting of gabby gifford, i don't understand why there is not a database that tracks these people who buy this sort of ammunition. they track pedophile types and keep an eye on them to see if they are a danger to children. so why don't we have a tracking system in place to say this is a red flag. this guy is buying 6,000 rounds of ammunition perhaps we should look at it and nip it in the bud.
plus an assault weapon ban, i don't remember what the report i saw this week, but there was a report 60% of killings in in assault -- when the ban was in place, went down 60%. >> yeah. there isn't some system in place where you can buy 6,000 rounds of ammunition -- >> and not draw attention to yourself. >> exactly. >> i saw a story where a reporter was buying massive amounts of ammunition. and not a single check. >> yeah. shawn you are on the "stephanie miller show." hi, shawn. >> hi, stephanie. i just have a quick point before i get to my main point. was anybody aware of his employment status? >> he was in school -- actually he just dropped out. >> i actually heard he was
unemployed and collecting unemployment. >> i hadn't heard that anywhere else. >> so if he just dropped out of school, he obviously wasn't employed -- >> that's the problem is unemployment insurance, right? >> yeah. yeah. >> is your point no one should get unemployment -- >> no absolutely not. >> then why did you bring it up -- >> i think the point is someone else may have been footing the bill -- >> that's what i'm trying to get people to think about -- where is this money coming from? >> but you are assuming he is on unemployment insurance -- we don't know that -- >> go to your next point. >> as soon as you go and put regulations on anything -- i can come up with a few examplings
the prohibition of alcohol, the prohibition of marijuana all types of pharmaceutical drugs -- >> okay. in moderation those things are not designed to kill you. guns are designed to kill you. >> can i finish please. >> sure. >> as soon as you make the -- the point to regulate any of these things, you can't just make them go away. they don't just go away -- >> nobody is saying guns should go away. >> so if you put a restriction on assault weapons the assault weapons wouldn't go away -- >> we shouldn't make it harder to try to get 100-round magazines? >> i think if there were 80 people in that movie theater who had weapons, the first person sitting next to him would have taken him down. >> i see. so you agree with russell pierce -- >> yeah i'm not quite --
[ overlapping speakers ] >> no, that's not at all what i'm saying. >> kind of -- >> kind of, and i'm saying everybody has a civil responsibility to bear arms a civil responsibility to flex their muscles -- >> everyone should be forced to carry a gun -- >> do you really want to live in a country where everyone is carrying an ak-47 on the street. >> i think it would be a lot different world -- >> that country would absolutely suck shawn!

about aurora and there was nothing funny about it except watching them tap dance around trying to discuss gun violence without discussing guns. >> right. and your man chuck todd -- >> the swiss voting? >> yeah, saying they are swift voting romney. >> yep. >> that's -- that's one of the reasons why i think chuck todd should be happy that john kerry is a very nice judicious fellow and didn't save any weaponry from vietnam. that is absurd. that is making sure your are going to get your phone called returned. >> yeah. as jim said yesterday, there's a difference between a bunch of lies, and you can agree or disagree on the way bain did business, but it's not lies.
it's what he guy did for a living. >> you are absolutely right. and it is remotely not the same thing. there was a piece by tom edsell in the "new york times" where he compared the voter suppression efforts to obama campaign's commercials on bain capital they were both examples of voter suppression. >> charlie i have got to say we have been having a discussion all day about gun control, and i thought you made such great points in here, that how did this happen that the debate has been shut down. you can't stop these people. and as i you say, if satan showed up at a gun show in colorado he could buy any weapon
he wanted to. >> yeah, i wish i was optimistic that anything would change, but i don't think it is. i think we're already halfway down the track that we go down every time these things happen. and poor carolyn mccarthy gets to be on tv 24 hours a day, and then we bury the dead and we don't talk about it anymore. >> yeah, like you say -- i was saying my favorite moment is when -- and i think you point this out too, david gregory says it's really a bipartisan thing. and the look on her face is like, yeah uh-huh. >> okay. and you're -- and you have been hosting the show for how long and watching him for how long? no. why people don't realize what a great story -- why people in my business don't realize what a great story there is beyond me.
you have one political party that is out of its mind. >> the important thing always is defining what a conservative view of life is. tough break, america, the world is a broken place, so we have to expect from time to time that a lunatic will shoot up a theater. >> that's what the entire conservative movement has become. this closed system with its own media, science, and facts, and now it's own beauty pageant, because apparently beauty pageants have a liberal bias. it's a terrarium now. it's ronnie mcdowell in that twilight zone where he opens his front curtains and realizes he is in a zoo. >> you say it is going to bitter
because gun lobbying has managed to buy half of the government and scare the [ censor bleep ] out of the other half. >> yeah, and i'm not sure what the solution is. if you go to the nra website, you will read stuff that is not attached to reality. and when this organization is that attached to our government is frightening. if one of these things every couple of years isn't the solution, i don't know what is. >> and charlie as usual -- >> we're locking up you know, muslim misfits so say the wrong thing to uncover fbi agents who have less chance of doing any damage than i do. and yet this guy can go on the internet and order 6,000 rounds of ammunition and the people who are supposed to put up the
red flags are deliberately stuck. >> yeah. if we all go to our normal positions on this we're never going to make any progress. and you said we also have a situation where we have a lot of 20 year olds who are not living in -- who are living in this under institutionalized world, lonely, and a hunger for fame. >> unfortunately i didn't say that -- >> well you quoted, and said we look out for all of the people who are drifting between the cracks -- >> i didn't say that either. >> but i like that you point out that that is part of the conversation too. >> yes, this has always been the refuge of people who don't want to talk about guns.
let's raise taxes and do something about mental. sorry, can't do that. we'll deinstitutionalize things again, because that worked out so well. it's not like our entire political process isn't hamstrung on all of these issues. >> it just gals me that we gutted the bill of rights after 9/11, but every time this kind of thing happens is we can't even discuss the second amendment. >> yeah. >> we talk all the time about -- we have this ongoing national debate, and it is a pretty good one about what limitationings we want to put on the first amendment. can you arrest a guy for going to a gee hady website? we don't argument about the fact that there are no limitations on

place? well, because they can disenfranchise minorities who vote for democrats. tom corbett signed the law back in march. and the republican house state majority leader openly admitted the new law would allow mitt romney to take the state in november. joe arpaio is going to take the stand defending allegations that he engages in racial profiling against hispanics. he calls himself america's toughest sheriff, saying they have been discriminated against. they say arpaio's office conducts sweeps focusing on dark-skinned people. they aren't looking for money, they just want arpaio's office to fess up to what it has done
