He is and you know some people would say well he wants to disarm the citizenry so that. That's that's the goal he's that he uses these kinds of tragedies too wise to soften people up. So they don't defend -- the Second Amendment was such great. -- -- But I I don't I don't think anybody is going to war is point to try to they might try to outlaw guns to they may dream of outlawing guns but it's pocket it's just like -- Thanks for the call it.

The epitome of our nation's used. Our nation's -- are hurting. And premier appointing the other day that it's funny how we encourage.

Back to be part of part of our nation's problem. -- and what was your comment and give. Well and so -- tells me that this does this mean. When you see the kids are hurting I mean. There is you know the economy is terrible obviously and you know and torture saying that there there's -- the spiritual -- the moral rot. And yeah there there is bearer of terrorism moral decay I mean obviously but I I don't I don't know why it's it's so easy to ward to just. Pontificating. On -- days like this site. Tried to avoid it it's just I I think this these this this kid was crazy or whoever did this challenge saying yes. -- law enforcement sources are saying that the shooter was at a -- thought he was carrying his brother Ryan's idea. And Ryan is in custody. Okay sorts sorts. Animal animal Lanza is dead. He was issued has that guarantees thrashers went IP he's twenty right is he twenty.

A and Ali an anti gun fast if it isn't already on most most channels. Mike you're next with Howie -- or have Mike. They are all right good. -- -- Potential damage awards and probably should pages that. It's gonna roll and everybody's. Quality human and it can be more important that local local buckle up. And but like everybody in the -- But. The computer called -- -- a single seat what happens when good people who carried out. Debbie the armed citizen in and then it then then national. Rifle association. Magazine I think it's probably on line now is is online now Mike -- you know. -- got a lot out of problem Apatow. And appeared -- -- -- operated out of Florida and being sort of send somebody in the back of the kept very. And chasing them out of it two up very well done. But -- talking about is there's only there's a they they used imported used to be in print I assume it's still in print but it's probably on the Internet as well it's called the armed -- citizen. And it's the national and rifle association collect stories of -- of citizens legally using guns to stop crime. And every every -- month there's a whole page. A bunch of of the incidents and they could they could fill up to a three more pages I'm sure whip other incidents he's just the best ones. Probably -- one notable being a little bit. That you undergo right. Corporate Iraq. That's too bad that's a real shame they should facial -- call -- 18774694322. 413 whatever mad she was on I bet they find he was off his Mets I bet they do -- The answer is long acting here it is this the answers long acting injectable and -- like products that are mandated by the state my subway pusher at NYC subway pusher or shooter Virginia Tech bone -- guy shall I go on. I just don't I don't -- how he could make make people take drugs that they don't wanna take drugs mean unless priority in prison. And mostly party done something that somebody. Bob your necks were powered car. -- Go to go to -- Old Toby Toby Euronext with how we cargo go ahead Toby. I don't know let me show -- all and normally I don't think one thing. A -- majority at once you know we cannot walk out and I agree. And you say what few people achieve -- we -- civic and achieve remote capture -- -- you -- -- just in -- adjusted. It's it's quite horrific -- sure -- -- in the apple yes but you look at. -- -- -- -- -- -- No I understand I understand my point well like you're right thanks. Bob Bob your next with how we cargo ahead Bob. Yes. Research this one. I believe that the worst mass killing in the United States history other than to use an airplane. Was at a social club in Harlem and somewhere like 87 people were killed and the weapon of choice was gasoline. Are we going to outlawed gasoline coming up. That went -- to get mentioned much of the time but that's the worst example and there's no way you could stop people from using gasoline and in any of these situations and to -- well again that would. And night for an act like that. Look at the coconut girl I mean that coconut grove by the right -- the 400 people killed in the coconut grove and not what 1942. Right about that twenty -- about seven years ago from from right now. And you know what you know what caused that it was it was a it -- it was bad design. They had they had to -- A guy actually transferring elect Obama dark corner where it is girlfriend and he used a match and we -- Africa on the snow right -- but the the problem was that they had to nailed the doors shot all the doors that people could be used to get out the back because people. To beat the cover charge. We're sneak NN the side in the back door it's right. But those -- accident but that same kind of thing could be done on purpose like somebody who doesn't have a gun doesn't -- public still wants to it. -- -- Yeah right and the other thing is true that some of these are some of these tragedies have been a used to occur because the the doors. The doors open in ports rather than out ports so you know they opened in words people would bump up against them -- that be trampled to death and nobody could get out and everybody would die enough enough fire both smoke inhalation. Or be trampled to death so now now you have don't. Re zoning regulations which every gore. He in a in a large area has the war opened outward so that everybody can can get out theoretically get out. One -- yes CNBC during give me that that that story about that that fire in Harlem where the guy it was a Disco. It was in the guy just poured gasoline in the on the entrance I believe and set the whole place on fire. 18774694432218774694322. Right. -- -- -- Bill Ayers kill with his Weather Underground he guilt if you only he didn't Bill Ayers didn't kill if you but the that they did kill they did kill some people the Weather Underground it's as some of the people killed were themselves. They had a townhouse in Greenwich Village blew up on Obama. He was there was Leon. There was a book written about don't shoot we are your children. 18774694322. Point guard. 187746943. 22. Interstate any hints as I know not only going to sound like an old -- by a model for -- others rant about guns I'd like to know what type of video games the murderer favored and if you took prescribed Mets. I'm gonna say definitely took prescribed Mets I don't know video games he -- I'd like to know that too. All right here it is Happy -- fire wasn't in parliament was in the Bronx. Was in March 25 1990. Killed 87 people. Trapped in an unlicensed social club called Happy Land. The evening of -- fire Julio Gonzalez and unemployed Cuban refugee -- argued with his former girlfriend. Lydia shall we see on our hat coat check girl with the club urging her quit she claimed she had had just about enough of him on one of nothing to do with him anymore. He tried to fight back into the club was rejected by the bouncer he was -- to scream drunken threats in the process. He later returned to the establishment with a plastic container of -- gasoline which you found on the ground and had filled at a gas station he spread the fuel on the only staircase in the club two matches were being used to ignite the gasoline. The fire exits had been blocked to prevent people from entering without paying the cover charge and like the coconut growth. In the panic that ensued a few people escaped by breaking a metal gate over one door. He was found guilty on August 19. 1991 about a 174. Counts of murder. For each count or what do the whole the whole field he received the maximum sentence of 25 years a total 4350. Years. It was the most substantial prison term ever imposed in the State of New York. 4350. Years I wonder when he'll be eligible for -- March 2015. He's got two more years to do little over two years to go before it will be eligible for parole. New York lost states multiple murders occurring during one act will be served concurrently rather than consecutively. Isn't that right. May be Governor Cuomo ought to introduce some legislation to watch fixed that'll loophole in the New York State criminal statutes rather than pontificating about gun control -- -- -- this year or shall I say. Bush is is warns. Him it did mess advanced. Talking about the need for gun control how. Isn't android bands. All these people from England. Wanna they wanna tell us what to do they they you know England doesn't. It's a lot harder to get a gun and England and guess what guess what's been happening in England. Gun violence has been going up. But they get to come over here and they get paid big money to tell us about how we should be. Steve your next what how we cargo ahead Steve. Yeah I can't. I that this thinking that possibly if the principle and that's what school in Connecticut yeah that they had a pistol in the locked. Droid in his desk -- at some basic training. I wonder how much difference that would. Well I was saying to what you know and people been laughing at me and saying you don't know teacher Sally. That and let -- one other thing you have a lot of influence would you give words to the NRA. That weekly in this country there are many positive. Tolerances with guns. That they never talk about they don't publish a list. Where big that they don't Steve will species and it would be a bit this month's this -- armed the armed citizen from the RA. I don't Abbott in the employ and you wanna be the armed citizen. It's say it's over it's the month it's the monthly RA call about people who do good deeds with guns. I'll just -- -- few Steve -- they've done that they've done the armed citizen for -- for years. I'm gonna get a -- try to get a copy alcohol level. We'll see just all do you know if your computer to -- will be armed citizen NRA the armed citizen a better job at that pop up oh -- -- moment. You know -- there's the Betsy it's a great it's a great column they pick the best of the month. Thanks for the call Robert your next with how we are going at Robert. It is safe to say myself. Completely discussion is always different directions so well we're still about controlling guns and banning guns and long list. It is committed the effort should be made. Again a little surge in the background of these people they have had been radicalized on the computer by somebody if they've been. Are there Ritalin. You know. It's more I'm -- Latter is more the latter is more likely than the former. Yeah the -- saying. Thing is that means we look at the fact the -- indecision. Seems impossible. There's at least one other person wasn't involved. And they were there were reports that there was a second person in the shopping center things recently so. I mean spender effort check out the backgrounds of these things and as far as I'm concerned. They should not be any legal rights for the background of the -- is dead you're dead. We're confidentiality. Should be out the windows question he would die -- somebody. I agree I agree that should the do we should die via full list of the Mets that this guy I was on. And register just you know just -- will -- with a win if they're prescribed for us whether or not. We wanna take amend yeah you know what when how they've affected other people.
