3:03 am
republicans both sides for the most part were stunned to hear him pushing for things like sense tillable reforms. gun reform has long been a poison pill for republicans. and a pipe dream for some opponents. and he just flat out came out and said hey, some you guys in this room afraid of the nra. we have got to do something. ainsley: this process incredible. met with lawmakers. bipartisan meetings twice. met with the family members that have lost loved one us and several of the school shootings around the country. also met with law enforcement. and what happened yesterday. they had live cameras in this room. really pulling back the curtain and allowing us americans, taxpayers, voters, to see what's happening inside the rooms instead of getting a press conference afterwards. brian: listen, i'm here to take your guns or attack the constitution, we have a problem over the past 20 years there has been school shootings and we have not addressed these problems. let's hit it. let's get all your ideas. you all have unique background. some are lawyers, some are
3:04 am
law enforcement. some come from congressional background in the senate. some new to this. some have been here forever and know the problems and pit falls in this process. it's a new day, i'm a new guy. here are the highlights if you have to work 9 to 5 probably missed the live show at 3:00 p.m. >> weave to do something about it. we now have to do something. we have to act. >> there is not a person in west virginia who doesn't believe you are going to defend their second amendment rights. >> i'm a big fan of the nra. these are great patriots, they love our country. >> 97% of americans want universal background checks yet we can't get it done. >> i think maybe you have a different attitude, too. i think people want to get it done. >> the best way to prevent these is to stop it before it starts. >> have you got have defense, too. you can't just be sitting ducks. >> it sounds cliche it'sically say because it's true. the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with gahanna. >> you have to do something about the mentally ill not being able to buy a gun. >> make sure the assistant

3:06 am
keep your eye on toomey manchin,. ainsley: the bipartisan bill. brian: senator lindsey graham said listen i know the president said a lot. i need to see it in paper. he said, mr. president, you put it down and then i will tell you where we stand. ainsley: background checks also need to apply if you buy a gun at a gun show and buy a gun online. some of the lawmakers are saying those are the loopholes that need to be patched up. steve: steve scalise was there and steve scalise started to talk about his bill in the house carry conceal carry reciprocity. president said steve i love you if you attach that to a bill it's not going to pass. so go ahead and make that a stand alone bill. so clearly the president is trying to say things that people have not heard from 1600 pennsylvania before. he want to get something done. he wants to make sure this time it's different. brian: joe manchin said to neil cavuto if this president was 2013 we would have passed this.
3:07 am
that's a democrat. meanwhile, six minutes after the top of the hour u. ainsley: meanwhile the doj is looking into possible obstruction of justice to the story we brought you yesterday. we interviewed tom who he homan, the acting director of ice. they went this to are a some of these illegal criminal aliens and the mayor warned the folks. on twitter. here is what the mayor had to say about it? >> i feel confident that what i did was the right thing and it was legal. i did not give specific information that could have endangered law enforcement. i encouraged people to not panic but to know their rights. to know their responsibilities. and to know about the unique resources that are available in this community. steve: it's just extraordinary that the federal government is investigating her, looking into did she obstruct justice? think about it. here she is, the mayor of oakland, california, and she
3:08 am
has gotten wind that perhaps there is going to be law enforcement activity where they sweep up people who are criminal aliens in this country and she warns people hey, the cops are coming, you better scatter. well, we had tom homan on the program yesterday, and he said that they were able to arrest 150. and that's good. but he felt that 864 of these criminal aliens got away because the mayor warned them. and so they're looking into did she break any laws because to many people it looks like she did. brian: all right. so here is what tom homan told us yesterday after he realized how much better his arrest record could have been had this mayor not spoken up. >> what she did is no better than, you know, a gang lookout yelling police. when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood, except she did it to an entire community. i mean, it's beyond the pale. i have been doing this for 34 years. this is a whole new low to
3:09 am
intentionally warn criminals that law enforcement is coming. i just can't believe it happened. ainsley: you wonder why you should care? after the school shooting in florida we are trying to protect our kids. we don't want our kids to go to school and be the next victim. look at kate steinle's family. illegal criminal deported several times comes back in the country and shoots innocent victim. this is what tom homan and the ice officials are trying to protect you from. brian: if you are illegal watching and siding with the mayor little problem with the law. john hugh used to work for the president. used to work with bush. the federal government can't commandeer or compel state officers to help them. state officers cannot impede or obstruct federal law. we have a civil war about this very issue. tom homan has a lot of legal force on his side. steve: it's just extraordinary. when is the last time you heard a chief executive for a community, essentially say hey, the cops are coming.

3:18 am
if you had a gun that day, what would have happened? >> if i would have had a gun on november 5th, 2019, hasan we wouldn't have had 13, killed and 42 wounded in action. i would have put a gun to the head when it started. brian: you are trained to do this. >> absolutely. brian: your thoughts about the president not making the military bases gun-free zones? >> well, i think that's a good decision. because, it used to be where all ncos were required to side arm while they were on duty. think about it we are trained to use weapons in combat. then ncos and above should be trained to carter weapons on post because you don't never know how someone could infiltrate our bases and cause chaos. brian: they tried. fort dix six terrorists on the outside let alone somebody on the inside gone off the rails. that's got to be part of the
3:19 am
conversation. quickly like what happened in florida. this guy major hasan who shot you, shot and killed, you guys knew he was nuts. you knew this guy was a little off. >> absolutely. brian: you couldn't do anything. >> that's right. because a lot of times when the policy alerted to the threat, they know it's a threat but they say it's not a credible threat. in my opinion any threat is a credible threat until you exhaust all resources to find out if it's a good resource or bad resource or not. so the shooting in florida, sad to say for those families that survived and the ones of them deceased the ball was dropped. again, now, instead of us being proactive we are being reactive. something has to change. brian: one thing the president says if a cop feels as though somebody substable fbi man or woman, i want them to be able to act take the guns away and worry about due process later. a lot of people went out of their minds on that statement. knowing what you know now and hearing some of these eyewitnesses say i told the
3:20 am
cops and they said their hands were tied. do you believe the president's on to something or is it just a violation of the constitution that's intolerable? >> no, i think is he definitely on to something. something that needs to be looked into deeper and further than just talking about it we actually need to do our research and then ban the wagon so we can come up with a possible solution. brian: put something together. sun set in 18 months. go back and visit and find out what's working. we all have the same objective. alonzo lunsford. it's clear the president has not forgotten the challenges on military bases. thank you, sir. >> you're welcome u. brian: 20 minutes after the top of the hour. her accused killers, ms-13 gang members who laughed in her mom's face in court. that mom has a message for them. and it's a powerful one. she is live next.

steve: remember a couple weeks ago on "the view" late mornings on abc. joy behar and company were poking fun at mike pence for his christian faith. and she said this. >> it's one thing to talk to jesus. it's another thing when jesus talks to you [applause] that's called mental illness if i'm not correct. steve: okay. so she is saying mike pence is mentally ill for talking to god. brian: and she is not correct. ainsley: we talked to mike pence about it and he said basically i get criticized all the time. i'm used to that. when you criticize the majority of america and my god for saying that, i stand up. i have to reprimand her for doing that. steve: mike pension is a conservative. she doesn't like conservatives. it's ironic. we're wondering how she is going to respond to the new cover story in "people" magazine where oprah winfrey reveals she talks to god, too.
3:33 am
>> billionaires calling me up saying i can get you a billion dollars. can i run your campaign. i actually went into prayer about it like, god, if you think i'm supposed to run, have you got to tell me. and it has to be so clear that not even i could miss it. brian: george burns played god that was obviously god. something as transparent and flagrant as that. is joy behar when her show goes live today going to mock oprah winfrey the way she mocked and got a laugh from the entire panel and the audience when she made her comments a few weeks back. steve: should we place bets? ainsley: she is thought going to say anything. brian: i wonder if she will address it we are laying the ground work here and we're powerful. steve: abc has not responded. she said once she was kidding. i don't think she is going to touch it with a 10-foot pole. ainsley: rush limbaugh calls it a double standard. listen to this. >> a liberal democrat is
3:34 am
gonna talk to god and god is gonna talk back. now, isn't that what they have been making fun of mike pence for for about a week? it wa maud behar on the view. mike pence is mentally ill because jesus talks to her. as big a risk for you recall oprah winfrey a democrat to acknowledge god number one and then she says she will not move forward unless she hears from god in such a clear way that she couldn't miss it. so she's expecting god to talk to her. anybody else see the contradictions here? ainsley: several things came to mind. when i heard oprah say that i was like -- see, i love oprah. i love that she is willing to talk about that and talk about her faith. and when you watched her show, she was always so
3:35 am
generous and talked about her faith a lot and giving away cars and everything. steve: you get a car. you get a car. ainsley: she always talks about how she appreciates where she came and what her story has been. i think she is a powerful woman. clearly she has done a lot for other people and for herself for this country and has a great story. so, i thought that was wonderful. joy behar, as a christian it makes me sad that she was making fun of him and doesn't have that experience. so, it's hard for me to criticize her because she just doesn't know -- she doesn't know the love of what it is like to have faith and to have a higher supreme being, it seems. brian: she wasn't getting much love after the abc switch board. 30,000 calls came to complain about her comments chut next day she came back and said i was basically only kidding. so, here's the question. oprah winfrey will feel as though she will be called out today by joy behar.
3:36 am
will she actually acknowledge it. will joy use this as an opportunity to say you know, the more i think about it, i really shouldn't have said that two weeks ago. i have a live show for an hour and, you know, we interact and sometimes things happen. steve: will it be the same standard? will she say that oprah winfrey is mentally ill as she said mike pence was mentally ill? oh yeah i'm just kidding. ainsley: a lot of people not sure about their faith and they would love to hear from god oopsd they're very confused and don't know what's happening. i have a good friend who talks to me about this all the time. she would love to have the assurance in heaven and all of that i understanding maybe she hasn't gotten there yet. maybe joy hasn't but to equate it to mental illness. that's what i had a problem with. brian: some people want to talk to god, other people want to talk to todd. steve: there you go. ainsley: or both. brian: got to make a choice. steve: in bowling green kentucky. kentucky went for president trump in a big way. and todd is just seeing how america is feeling on this thursday morning. >> good morning, steve,

3:38 am
fact, is actually running for sheriff of lauren county which is where we are right now. you said you may not like the laws, but we are a nation of laws. and you need to enforce the laws. why do you say that? >> well, because that's exactly what it is. that's what the founding fathers meant to do with the declaration of independence. we are a nation of laws. and when we cease to stop enforcing those laws, we cease to becoming a nation. and it is just important that we know who is coming and going from this country because not everybody that comes to this country is here-ly to are some here to do us harm. todd: quickly, what should happen to the mayor of oakland for warning about the ice raid. >> she should be arrested. todd: thank you for your time we'll be here all morning long. send it back to you in new york steve, anxiously and brian. steve: those pancakes look delicious and great answers from that man in law enforcement. brian: they are not international house

3:46 am
general. texas congressman louie gohmert. louie, good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. steve: you have been talking about a second counsel since you wrote that letter to the boss, what was it, last summer? >> yeah. and, actually, there is a picture of me whispering in president trump's ear and i was telling him, you got to appoint a second counsel to investigate mueller, rosenstein, they were involved in that uranium one, closed some cases. that enabled hillary and her cronies to approve the sale of 20, 25% of our uranium to ultimately to russia. all of that has got to be investigated. also, there are too many fbi agents and too many doj officials that need to be investigated. whether it's strzok,or, and, of course, steele. all of those people need to be investigated. and you know, the fbi and the doj can't investigate their own top people.
3:47 am
but, i wanted to make a distinction, steve, i don't believe we need a second counsel to look into the fisa courts. the fisa judges, if they had any modicum of self-respect for their courts. not just themselves, their courts, they would have already long time ago called the lawyers in and put somebody in jail for committing a fraud upon the court. that's contempt of court and somebody should have gone to jail long before. >> now the fact they haven't done that tells me these fisa judges don't need to have any kind of secret court hearings. steve: the attorney general made it clear they are going to look into fisa abuse with the inspector general of the department of justice. louie, we have so many investigations going. you have the robert mueller thing. the ig looking into the doj. that's where peter strzok got in trouble and got fired off of the mueller team. it's hard to keep track. but, so a lot of people are thinking well, aren't they
3:48 am
already looking into hillary clinton's stuff, somebody? >> yes. and my understanding is that jeff sessions and some of the doj are looking into some of the hillary clinton stuff, perhaps on uranium one. but there is so much voluming the emails and, you know, okay, did comey only come forward right before the election about we're reopening hillary's case because some of the fbi agents said either you come forward or we're going to quit and we're going to blow the whistle on how pro-hillary you've been? all of that needs to be investigated and it involved doj and fbi. that needs a second counsel to do that. steve: it's up to jeff sessions, let's see what he does. >> or the president could appoint a second counsel himself. that's what i mentioned to the president last july. keep pushing. thank you for your help. steve: thank you for telling us your story. all right, louie, thank you very much. >> all right. steve: all right. meanwhile, let us know what

yesterday we had the acting director of ice on our show. obviously he was upset and who wouldn't be. he is trying to get illegals out of this country and broken the law in many respects, not just coming here. overstaying visas and committing crimes. he had a list of 800 people to pick up in california. well then the oakland mayor, libby schaaf decides to give a warning about the raids. and, therefore, he had 150 pickups instead of 800. here's the mayor not backing down. she is not sorry about this. >> i continue to feel confident that what i did was the right thing and it was legal. i did not give specific information that could have endangered law enforcement. i encouraged people to not panic. but to know their rights, to know their responsibilities. and to know about the unique resources that are available in this community. steve: for her to say she
4:04 am
didn't give any specific information, she warned everybody in california and anybody watching television that ice was planning a raid. so obstruction of justice, that's the question. we had done rosenberg on a couple of days ago talking about it. he was horrified. he said it was obstruction of justice. in fact, emailed me yesterday. it is -- he lost his son drew to an illegal. he said it's time for the justice department to act because the politicians in california are not just laughing at the administration but are becoming more empowered to protect criminals at the expense of the law abiding. keep in mind, they had 1,000 people on a list they were going to go. we are talking about criminal alien. they were only able to get 150, 864 skated. and tom homan, the acting director of ice, said they are looking into whether or not the mayor committed obstruction of justice. >> what she did is no better than, you know a gang lookout yelling police. when a police cruiser comes
4:05 am
in a neighborhood except she did it to the community. it's beyond the pale. i have been doing this for 34 years. this is a whole new low to intentionally warn criminals that law enforcement is come. i can't believe it happened. ainsley: he said something interesting i heard a few days ago. he said this is actually, the democrats are saying yeah, sanctuary cities we feel sorry for them. we feel sorry for the illegal immigrants. he said it's really in their best interest to have ice working the way they used to work. where if a criminal illegal alien did something wrong, they would go to the jail. they would be put behind bars and ice would be there waiting for them because they had done something wrong. they were criminals. they had broken the law. but now what they are having to do is they are getting a list of who is breaking the law. then they have to go into the neighborhoods. then they have to knock on the doors it not only puts their agents at risk. someone comes to the door they are looking for the criminal. they arrest that person but if they discover that other people in their family might be here illegally, then they have to take them. in so it's actually doing the illegal immigrants more harm according to them than

4:18 am
president is counting on the framework of manchin-toomey to go forward on legislation. >> that's right. brian: kept asking to add things and subtract things. what's in it? it's more about background checks, right? >> that's exactly right. the bill, the first part is to improve the information that's in the background check system. the second part is to require a background check for commercial sales. that is to say at a gun show or over the internet. there are also a number of provisions that allow a law-abiding citizen more opportunity to exercise their second amendment rights. for instance, our bill would allow active duty military folks to buy a handgun in their home state. today they're forbidden from doing that that doesn't make any sense. final thing is it creates a commission to study the mental health issues that are associated with this mass violence. that would be a very good base text. the president seems to support it and people can have different ideas. they can offer amendments. we can debate it, a vote on it and see where the senate
4:19 am
consensus is. brian: are you open? i saw you sunday and i saw you yesterday. are you open to raising the age to 21 on rifles hand guns? >> look, i'm skeptical about that. i don't think the ages have been handed down by moses. i think we can have that discussion. but i know for a fact that in pennsylvania most 18, 19, and 20-year-olds buy long guns because they are hunters or they go target shooting and they are not a threat to anyone. i'm reluctant to say that whole category of americans has to lose their seconds amendment rights. brian: maybe they can't buy but maybe they can use a gun. maybe there is something like that in there. mental health is it. real quick, senator. you have been through a lot in washington. i'm fascinated by seeing this process. how unique is it how effective are these meetings with the president? >> they can be very effective. we have a lot of meetings like this about tax reform and it led to the biggest success on tax reform in over 30 years as you know.
4:20 am
in my view if president embraces something like manchin-toomey broad bipartisan support but couldn't get to 60 votes the president could make a difference. brian: joe manchin said if he was president in 2013 it would have passed. you reminded me it was republicans that didn't vote for your bill. it stopped at 54. do you have more now? >> that's what we're trying to determine. i can tell you that there are republicans who voted no in 2013 that are reconsidering. i can't tell you that any have signed up. but there are definitely some who are reconsidering. so, it suggests me might be getting closer. brian: my sense is, senator, just get the work done, right you? are so close. go in there and find out what everyone has got to say and put something forward because people are getting frustrated. senator pat toomey, thank you so much. >> thanks for having me. brian: straight ahead, 20 minutes after the hour. should the 10 commandments be allowed on public are property? a judge just ruled. here is one way to get votes, smoke a joints in a

running. what made you want to run as a republican and what's your reaction to where we are as a society today when you see -- when you are running against a candidate that's promoting that? >> well, i wish i had a lot of time. but in 2008, the committee -- ward committee men appointed me to run for republican office. and the fifth district is mainly lake fronts liberals and now it includes the republican suburbs, conservative. and i decided to run as a liberal republican in order to try to get across and make a meeting of the minds whereby i'm social on liberal and conservative on fiscal. now, i just don't think that recreational pot should be in illinois. i know six states have passed it. and i learned last night on a show called francis and friends, that washington, d.c. has legalized medical marijuana for the last 20 years. so it could be that there

the american dream? it's time now for the massey memo. let's bring in bob massi. >> good morning, ainsley. ainsley: good morning. tax reform. economy gone up. had 01 ks looking strong. apparently more people buying houses too, right? >> yeah, it's encouraging for the young people because it's been stagnant for so long and with unemployment issues that had occurred several years ago and kids couldn't get jobs there is a new feeling in our country that young people feel that there is great opportunity. so as a result of that, they are stepping out of the rental market and they want to own young families want to own. some places are expensive. they can't afford it they like suburban rural areas. they are back in ache. that's what exciting for the young people. ainsley: always fascinating when you see what percentage of americans own homes. right now 64.2%. or at least that was the last quarter of 2017.
4:46 am
that's up from 63.7. among americans under the age of 35, 36% of them own houses. where did they get the money to buy these houses? is it because they lived at home a little bit longer or getting better jobs? >> yeah. i think so. i think it's a combination of what you just said. number one, a lot of the millennials actually a lot of them ended up quitting school because of student loans and went to community colleges. lived at home. literally, with their parents. saved their money. started getting new jobs. built up their credit. and then was able to buy again. and so that's sort of the way and, again, because the president is so pro-employment, pro-development, pro-housing, that obviously has helped. and it's wonderful. because these young couples basically were stagnant for quite a long time. ainsley: yeah. remember when the president said americans are dreamers, too? we were talking during the commercial break. we were saying the american dream used to be to buy a house and was that our grandparents or our parents'
4:47 am
generation. what is it now? what is it if you ask the millennials what is the american dream. >> you know, it's interesting. when we did the third season of the show down in arizona, we interviewed kids from university of arizona. it was interesting. some kids said you know, i don't want to bu bind myself 30 years. i was surprised to hear that the way i was raised was to own a home and have a safe place for my family. there is sort of a paradox there to some extent. but i think there is an urge now. they are tired of the rentals. they know that that's part of the fiber of america. they know it helps the economy. so it's a good feeling, ainsley for these young people. they feel like there's opportunity again. ainsley: some of the people that work here to said it's to keep my home and make money have your dreams come true. what's the massi memo today? >> basically thank you, president trump for basically enticing people to get back into the action, to build homes. giving opportunity for young people. i think it's just the

5:03 am
reform, working on infrastructure now. holding forth at some of these roundtables yesterday on school table. last week, listening session with those affected by school shootingses was hope's original idea. that is one example of misdemeanor i could give you how she very quietly but assiduously worked behind the seas to make a real impact for the president, presidency and for her country. brian: she will be very hard to replace. have you thought about it, have they offered you to take that job? i've been offered that job many times and, no, i work on policy here at the white house. you're right, it will be very difficult to replace hope hicks in the hope role which was very multidimensional role over the course of three years. i think it is important to talk about the three years. we've been here for 13 months. hope is one of those unbroken threads between the early days of the primary campaign, all threw the campaign, on the plane practically every day, including on weekend with candidate trump,
5:04 am
during transition with him and with us and certainly here since day one in the administration. hope's nothinger. she has a great family she is close to. she has a wonderful future. we're all excited to see. i love her. i will miss her very much. she is the kind of person as general kelly said is wise beyond her years, very poised, very talented. she wielded a great deal of her power very quietly. she had the luxury not having to come on tv often but i think we'll hear from her and one day when hope hicks sits down to give a major post-white house interview millions of people will tune in and i will be up with of them. ainsley: you have to tell her to do that on fox and friends. steve: a lot of room on the couch. ainsley: she is stunning. has quite a resume', 29 years old. she can say she was communication director for the president of the united states. let's talk about the bipartisan meeting yesterday because the president is meeting with law epforcement, families affected
5:05 am
by school shootings, also with democrats and republicans trying to come up with a plan that makes the majority of americans happy and do something to make our country and schools safer. what are your thoughts what is happening there on the hill and these bipartisan meetings? >> several things. the president has tape a leadership role from day one that we all learned about this terrible tragedy 15 days ago. he had listening sessions with the affected families and also with public safety and education officials. then yesterday with those who ultimately will put something on his desk, one would hope. the cop dress, bicameral, bipartisan meeting this meeting was not about gun control. this meeting, let's not forget about school safety. we're talking about all of this in the cop text of the tragedy that occurred in parkland, florida. we have to remember when the president comments, yesterday, he was talking that particular shooter in many instances. that we all saw what this person had posted on social media but after the fact.
5:06 am
we all know that dozens and dozens of calls and warnings about this individual. everybody is angry and everybody is heartbroken but we wonder how can this slip through the cracks? so with that as the backdrop the president is saying stronger background checks. the president called for raising the age as has dick's sporting goods and walmart perhaps others raising age when you buy certain firearms. those companies have to make a business decision. he is leading the nation in a conversation. the president just told me last night, we had a conversation late last night about yesterday's session. he told me last night there are elements of the toomey-manchin bill and elements of the cornyn-murphy bill he is support i have at this of. he made that very clear. that shows bipartisan impulses. >> steve: right. >> he is very respectful of the second amendment and law-abiding citizens who own and possess their firearms in a peaceful way. they have their rights and he knows that. steve: kellyanne, the nra said
5:07 am
after the meeting, well the meeting was great tv, the gun control proposals discussed would make bad policy that would not keep our children safe. you can see the people around that table coming together but how does the nra fit into this equation? because it seems like the american people really want to get something done this time and the nra has to be at the table as well? >> they were at the table. they were at the table, private table with the president over the weekend. he made that very clear to the governors. said it including to fox news on monday when he met with the governors he had lunch, shared a meal with the executive members, three of them from the nra or so. that he is also listening to them. but the president made very clear. hardening the target. this is about school safety. let's focus there, everybody. got to hard the targets. we're leaving many of these schools vulnerable. i read about 98% of the mass shootings that have occurred since the 1950s have been in
5:08 am
gun-free zones. the president made very clear in all sessions on live tv for all to see, we're inviting more violence by keeping these gun-free. he called for arming a very small and specific population of gun-adept teachers or administrators. he has called, i saw governor cot of florida yesterday calling for securing the doors, having metal detectors or better locks. steve: bullet-proof glass. >> many different proposals on the table. that is what democracy allows. it allows a conversation. it is up to congress to go back to see what the president can be put on his desk. brian: they have a bill out since 2012. joe manchin said nee cavuto, if this was our president in 2013 this woe have passed. a lot of republicans were not for it. they might type it up and represent it. here is what he told us earlier. >> we have a lot of meetings like this about tax reform.
5:09 am
it led to the biggest success in tax reform in over 30 years as you know. it really in my view, if the president embraces something like manchin-toomey, a bill that had broad bipartisan support but couldn't get 60 votes the president could make the difference. brian: is that what the president is behind, kellyanne, when you spoke to him last night? >> he definitely said elements of toomey-manchin and "fix nics," cornyn-murphy bills he can support. he took immediate action against bump stocks that could have been done before. it took this president to do it. this president seems to keep the promise of many different presidents. he did that with jerusalem. he is doing that certainly when it comes to historic tax reform. as senator toomey says, this is a president that invites people around the table and invites americans into the cabinet room to watch on live tv unfiltered, unscripted, what is happening. and we should all welcome that. i think toomey and manchin have
5:10 am
a point, their legislation came out after the horrible, unspeakable tragedy in sandy hook with schoolchildren and educators. and so, never passed. steve: no. >> this is president who is saying look at that. look at what senator cornyn and senator murphy -- senator murphy represents connecticut where sandy hook is, newtown. steve: okay. >> he is having a conversation but also wants to hear from different points of view and that includes the nra representing millions of law-abiding gun owners. ainsley: kellyanne, something else the president is tackle is opioid crisis. there is forum to combat the problem we have in our country. what can we expect today no today we have two-hour summit at white house. the first lady will kick it off which is wonderful. we have six cabinet secretaries showing the country what respective departments and agencies have been doing to tackle the opioid crisis since the president's hhs secretary declared a public health emergency last october. since the president went first

keeping kids safe. nra members, we're moms and dads too. i want to point out as well, wayne laperriere, president of nra, has been talking about hardening our schools for a long time now. he has been talking about this for several years. when he first came out with it, he was mocked endlessly by the media, when he discussed how important it was to make sure that our schools were protected. that they were able to implement strategies to harden them. so our teachers and kids can feel safe. so ultimately, i just, looked at, i watched everything that happened during this discussion and it is not, not going to make for policy to keep kids safe. there is number of things we can do. the nra is pushing towards actionable solutions. we have nra school shield. we put our resources up full disposal for my schools that want to implement them. steve: we're on board, that the schools should be hardened. the president talking about across the board what they do in number of states, arm some of the teachers.

i think he has been maligned and misrepresented in the media this fashion when he says we need to make sure teachers can be armed because the way i see it represented by other disingenuous networks the president is saying we have to mandatory arm all teachers. that is not what he is calling for. he is calling for teachers who feel comfortable, who are volunteering, to be armed. have those individual go through training. if they feel comfortable to do that on school ground, then let's explore that option. he is talking about also infrastructure things. making sure, simple things, reinforcing windows. having bullet-proof glass. making sure you have really good security checkpoints at all entrances and exits. these are some things that the president has discussed before. instead of seeing headlines, exploring that further, i've seen people mocking him because he is going and discussing teachers who want to voluntarily arm themselves. you have spoke with a bunch of people in bowling green,
