(jon) well there's not much we can do about it not, but we had to try. (buck) yeah. (jon) i think you did the right thing in pulling off those couple shots. it was all or nothing and at this point i think we've got nothing, but hey that's just thnature of eland hunting and something to look forward to next time. (buck) well it's been a blast i tell you what. i'm not sure if i hit him or not, just one of those things where we're not finding blood we're on the tracks and he seems to be running pretty good so maybe it was a good clean miss and he'll be there to hunt another day.

>> hello, welcome to the show. as always thank you for joining us for i am armstrong williams. emily atkins is with the washington herald and ryan lovelace is with the examiner. i want to lay out something for you and i want you to explain. because in some ways you are doing the wrong thing for the right reason. so this is the theme e the segments. a part of it, you are doing the wrong thing for the right reasons. i want to go to bundy's, claimed bundy. and the standoff, he is not compares himself to rosa park. he is saying that he is more discriminated against then black lives matter. and i said to myself, really? and then i asked myself a couple years ago when his father and a group of rancncrs
andndthey all have guns i efforts up this question, what is the reaction from the federal government had been different had those ranchers had been minorities:summary after the question, are stuck with it have been different if they had been black? and you know, sometimes you just don't want ttanswer. because they are asking legitimate questions. so i want to talk about bundy for a few minutes because he is worthy of some national attention but i will start with you. >> i think that is a lot of questions of other people are asking, the difference in the reaction from this standoff from other protest by black life matters or others with really dramatic. the government sort of seated >> and we are talking out the e gornment. ep that in mind. >> with this occupation go on for quite an amount of time. and i get a lot of people@ thought in baltimore, if black lives matter had occupied a
would've lasted is short time. and there are legitimate questions there as to how these people e being treated. not just by t t governments but byothers, presidential candidates. if you remember the clyde bundy the presidential candidates talk to him, stand next to him. to talk about the tyranny of the government until he started saying some controversial things and then everybody blacked off. >> about jews and minorities. and now the gop presididntial ndidates have been thrust into being critical across tis critique. can he compare himself to rosa parks: >> you know, i personally don't see the comparison. >> armstrong: but he does. >> and he does.>> armstrong: what about the issue, ryan. the federal government there was a fire that took place, the fires went to government prprerty. ththy were scheduled to to
said, we have not sentence you long enough we are going to add to that system for that is kind of bizarre, talk about that speed and that is the thing that is controversial. >> armstrong: very controversial. >> ryan: and it will continue to be something how these different presidential candidates respond because e the past these candidatesshave rushed out like kim davis that do spark a lot of controversy. and that is something that is important to keep in mind about why this is different from black lives matter.is the setting. >> armstrong: it is different because these people are armed. they are carrying. >> ryan: right, right and the setting is different too. because the media's ability to carry is different.t. because in st. louis, the ferguson area there is much easier access for media to be there and everyone was talking to the area. in rural oregon they are trying to bring in the show and not having cell service there are different challenges there
of the media's coverage of the event. and i think there is a completely different set of circumstances outside of what typically is taking place there that is changing how people are looking at the event, to. >> armstrong: but if the color skin was different with the cover they categorized them and the governments reaction towards them would it be different? >> ryan: i think there is a strong argument to be say that there would. >> armstrong: but why? i sympathize with the fundies and the gunn's and the mann's, they are breaking the law there should be no tolerance for that. but for my reason for the right reason. >> emily: andthis goes to what devises terrorism and other things. we have had people who are armed, they are in a standoff with the government. if that was a different group of people they could have labeled it terrorists. >> armstrong: but their armsms are legal. they have lel to carry. >> emily: and for the occupation of a federal
>> armstrong: that is true that is where you draw the line. that is true. >> emily: and given their treatment i think a lot of people say >> armstrong: many people believe in we go texas that the government blew up the building. >> emily: and they do. >> armstrong: and they were not minorities. >> ememy: and that speaks to the distressed ofofgovernment about these young people why these religion groups of existed for so long and are still powerful enough and armed enough to take a federal building. >> armstrong: last friday in south carolina, i want to continue this on a different topic. emotional moments, said solemnly in a auditorium in south carolina. and the crowd started singing trump, trump, which was to escort her andndothers oututs he was s lking about syrian refugees. now she admitt that as she was being escorted out many people in the audience profusely apologized to her for this kind of behavior. in assuming that she is a
and some people were yelling, you are carrying guns you have explosives. and you can see the woman and the she was what do we do in these instances:with every day people we see the good side of america and not judge it. but we see this other side which is a dangerous trait. wait a minute i have 30 seconds? let me come back i don't want to interrupt you. this. because it really goes back to acceceing this seemingly having in america. that is quite different you can see it, you can sense it, you can make it kind of soffit it presents itself up.
>> emily: and she didn't. >> armstrong: and i am sorry, but with security, i know all those people were checked before they entered the room. >> emily: and right, right. >> armstrong: they had secret service protection. >> emily: and i think this was a crowd mentality that she stood and the reaction from the crowd from doing that grew to the point that it led to her being escorted out. and i think that is what happens when you have a strong message with someone like donald trump that, you know questioning whether we should let muslims into the country at all.that really captures a wide net as to who puts us in danger. d when people see that creates this crowd mentality. that i don't think it's helpful to the political discourse but donald trump is what he has been doing to stay ahead in the polls. he feels justified in doing that saying, look, americans agree with me. this is what they want.
disturbing i think we don't want to poporize people and she just clearly was not a terrorist inny way. but she proved the point. that just people who see her might perceive it as such. and i think we need a discussion to show that a lot of people are not muslims, are peaceful people who are not trying. >> armstrong: but i got to tell you what we see that brazen, that brazen shooting at that police officer in philadelphia. and he said he d d it the name of isis. you see why people feel that way. it was brazen. 4> ryan: people have ever reason to be afraid. they have every reason to be scared but will people are also looking for is for people to control and console them so they understand that they have someone who is a strong leader who is not going to rush to judgment necessarily. but donald trump does have a plan for the dramatic. the saying you are fired, the slogan from his television show
and what he is writing on print and i think that is going to be something that becomes very problematic for thgop going forward. and saw they reach a whole new group p f ads that reach audiences that don'to bluell republican. they tried to reach new voters. and the question or not is that the new voters that donald trump are preaching are the same voters the gop want and need to win in 2016 and will change course from them for the last eight years p7 here is the interesting thing. all this publicity, all this print, all this domination by candidate trump. >> armststng: all overerhe world, and i don't the trump i have known him a long time. but you know none of us really don't think donald trump. too often he never does anything, he never gets into the substance. nobody asks in his values, what jason, into his background like ben carson and personal america. the question is do we really
>> emily: and i think that is a good point. he is a message shape shifter. when a message seems to be good for his campaign he goes with it even if it contradicts other things. remember he initially said that we have to let in syrian refugees for these are people who have been persecuted. and so it was more advantageous to say no we have to get the refugees up at every muslim. so i think he is a good manipulator. >> armstrong: but do we know who he is: >> emily: and outside of the entertainment. >> armstrong: do we know? >> ryan: he appears on television so often everybody thinks they know him because he has been in their living room. i don't think people have an understanding of who this guy is beneath the surface. who has made him into who he is today. his background story hasn't then added yet which i think s intereing.
willingness to do media, television all the time, mass media, it has instant analysis on twitter every time something happens he is their right array talking about it. there is never a cause or time for people to then go into his background but he gives them what they want to hear, he gives the snappy, short soundbite that he does well drive conversation for days. the islamic woman who was thrown out of his rally will probably get more than the forum on poverty for the republicans, trying to fight poverty in america. that is one of the things donald trump recognizes and why he has been so capable of taking over this 2016 race and driving the conversation on the republican side. >> armstrong: what is going on, what do you expect from the supreme court:*speaker11* and there is a lot.that is among the thin still waiting to, the order by the president to sort of give a reprieve to some of the immigrants who are already here. give them work and focus elsewhere, that is one of the big issues.
cocort agagn, it is been years since the supreme court has taken on abtion and texas and a number of other states have hacked loss since then that really restrict access to that. so it is going to be two big issues coming up in an election year. >> armstrong: is it true that the end are two of the industrialized that don't have maternity leave from others. >> emily: and we are thoughts flexible than other western nations, hillary clinton has already been talking abbt it. i am sure we will hear more about that from her in an election yeyr. especially at this time for both sides, both republicans and democrats really need to appeal to women. and have both hillary clinton and a number of the gop candidates have had trouble appealing to them in the passive it will be a big issue. >> armstrong: mark romano i don't recognize him anymore. marco rubio who is usually reasonable and sensible, and was out to the far right. he has gone far right what is happened to rubio? >> ryan: i think we have seen
primary voter. he is not necessarily in the same mindset he was when he first arrived in the senate because now he is running a very difficult t primary, perhaps s one of t t most competitive in a long time certainly. before that his audience is different. so you are seeing all of these candidates try to tailor their message to who they think will show up for them and that is why you see em playing two different issues, highlighting different things. and i think that is what you see when his message appears to chanan he is looking for a different audience e that he has in the past and florida. >> armstrong: quickly what are we going to get the gop back to four or five candidates a week and get a real debate. >> emily: and it may be a long time, march or even later before this all shakes out. because there are so many candidates. there are so many different candidates that appeal differently in places from iowa, south cacalina, to florida.
donald is asking for money you know good news could be many different things for the president has signed an executive order and the good news is it doesn't mean anything. [laughter] and joining us to tell us why it doesn't meme much and it doesn't. iseon spears who is president and owner of dc concealed weapons. concealed carry, dc concealed carry.com. joining us but you don't have to agree with me i don't think it's initiation changes much.
>> the president's executive actions had four parts. one, to keep america safe in the sense that there is an initiative by the white house to invest $500 milllln into healthcare, mental health acknowdgments. and so what you is prohibited from purchasing a firearm. local law enforcement will be notified. secondly, as technology for safe guns, safe guns he s implememted new changes in research and devevepment for dod, the department of homeland security to actually research the smartphone technology. and thirdly, to keep communities safer. more active atf agents to respond to forcincurrent laws on the books.
24 hour accesesfor nics checks, national instant background checks, 24/7 access, 365. >> armstrong: explain to us all the atf is going to respond differently than what we have seen them for works traditionally now it has been a backlolo so something like, for an ample that happened in charleston. the background did not come back in time. and that person was a prohibitive person, but the current federal law actually allowed him to receive a firearm because the time was allowed to receive a firearm had expired. so he e was s ven a firearm even though his isiswasn't actually complete. >> how will this go into more export-oriented detail. how does that change from anything in the past? >> it is not so much explore
quicker. more efficiently, more effectively. >> armstrong: so what will change to make that happen? >> to hire more staff it will hire more than 200. >> armstrong: how long before the tiring take place? it is not going to take place immediately. when people hear that executive order they expected right away. but that doesn't happen. >> it is the expectation of the public. it would be remiss to say it is not going to happen overnight. but i wouldn't have an answer to that. >> armstrong: what is different about the technology now than what the president? >> well smart gun technology is very controversial. sometimes you have to have a watchband in close proximity to a firearm. technology is like stamping on actual ammunition. micro-stamping, those are very
>> armstrong: we are interested in the mental health are you saying the latest from the president is going to stop people who have issues from mental health that people are aware of for them to have access to firearms? >> the key that you just had is there is no silver bullet. no pun intended it just happens to be you cannot stop crying. you can do the best that you can, just because you cannot stop all crime does not mean that you should try and prevent the smell of crime through local change in policies.>> armstrong: i know you are doing your best effort to get support and credibility with what the president is doing but i want to go back to o earlier statement. it is just a band-aid. >> i wouldn't say a band-aid. i would call it progress. >> armstrong: so you are telling me going forward, the guns, innocent people being shot. it will be less of because it
