Thank you Bob. -- goes without saying I hope everybody understands that. 187 set. We're talking to some guys around here today that says it's it's really not a good sign given the given the vibes around this place that that the more and more people are -- are hurt our armed. -- -- -- -- -- I don't. Hamas. Won 8774694322. Flank your next with how we cargo -- frank. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- First of all -- -- illegally in the colony Eric it is this. As double one of the true all want what is what is legal -- what -- -- -- -- two young talent got a blow you know blow it. But to all let's call the reciprocity. On carry -- many other states. -- apartment upstate New York Jets to fight our city had a shot that is only illegal but caught up less than eighteen -- -- -- It's cut out so wait a second. -- up at the shotgun is illegal what it's come off less than eighteen inches. The barrel short eighteen -- cycle kicked our rightful -- be shortened sixteen and. Oh OK okay subtler so but they they told me that they would get -- they could give us. A a -- top permit and the EU top permit would be good enough main. Nobody is saying if I get you talk permit and I that I can get reciprocity and in Maine Maine and Maine and Florida -- that -- the two states I spend most more time in. If I'm not a Massachusetts amusing in main floor right. Yet there are several states that. Take reciprocity to a -- you walk the intake -- the proxy. Statement. Well I mean New York is all screwed up they they got this lead they got this latest thing that -- Cuomo pass through the legislature what they Republicans helping in the senate it's apparently it's all screwed up -- nobody nobody it was writing the legislation to what the hell they were talking about it. And I don't think everybody's celebrating because the assault weapons band bill is not going to be it's actually initial -- it's -- it's a all of its false flag. What -- or universal background check which means. That is what I felt it's sunny it's sort of like give it to them the grant was gunned -- you know. They've got to actually if you put the original bill failed to prove that -- only got. Well that cigarette blogger Philip L in 1930 by the probative they got it back doorway again. Right now -- just and that's what. Wayne Lapierre -- -- and -- on Meet the Press yesterday that that this is just these street that's what he said basically that was a backdoor way that these things aren't real but they're just trying to walk. Yet you know there fumble along for a method to take people's guns away from. And that's that's all -- -- -- in I I agree with them and I -- what he -- to -- Bloomberg you know what had nothing to do with Bloomberg being Jewish but. I loved -- when he said you know peaking at the camp idea American people. -- the play the -- play the -- with David Gregory pretending that the American people for or against the Second Amendment -- -- -- -- -- about this. You know they they got a good poll on gay marriage so now they say the Supreme Court house to house -- rule in favor gay marriage. Even though. As far as I know until the until the last couple elections no state has including California. Including YE. Has ever. It's the game has ever passed gay marriage and a week in Massachusetts liberals they want more evil of them vote Maine had to vote before they finally passed that. In the last election. So but now -- got to poll out that now they say well we don't you that we will you know everybody's for everybody's for a gay marriage. But now they have all these polls come out that they. Everybody. Is for the Second Amendment and nobody wants to have handguns banned but David the so -- let's. Appalled when the polls in their favor there there the sacred word they're vets -- ward. But when the polls or against them the Paul -- account it's a good list. Me ask you about background checks. Because the mayor referred to the poll 90% of Americans want universal background checks. Here's this survey from finished -- this week among those people who own guns 85%. Support my youth awarding the will of the American people by standing in opposition to universal. Akron to know not as not all because here's a thing. The whole thing universal checks is a dishonest premise that there's not belong hill that provides a universal checks. Criminals aren't going to be checked they're not gonna do this. Deep shooters in Tucson in a roar in -- they're not going to be checked their unrecognizable. NRA supported the national instant check system on dealers. Where ability the reference in 1999 when you testified. -- -- -- billion dollars into the system now it's not fair it's not accurate it's not incidents it. Is it that it's not instant the mental health records are not in the system. And they don't prosecute any of the criminals that they catch well it's a speed bump for the law abiding resources they -- -- logic does nothing to anybody else when it was -- Last time they had -- somebody was sent to prison here in Massachusetts for violating partly -- you're supposed to be get a one year on laughter. It be if you have an illegal handgun during the commission of felony. Right that -- -- old former former judge now state rep running for the Republican nomination for the senate he said he had sent somebody to prison. On or off for another year on the partly fox I can't remember anybody. In the Bartley fox was passed back in the seventies I remember when it was passed them it was occasionally forced -- men but not since. So they yelled that Adam Williams I have a background check no we -- Almost guidance so we got then. To her. -- -- cash and diet took the gun and killed her and then went to the school. Now how was it how was a background check on -- stop animal hands. It's not. But she this is that it's that this they're dishonest because they they know that it's like stop at points it's going to be the eventually they're gonna say. Well you know we that would have to do with none of these things are working so we're just gonna take them all away from you missed that -- guns away. The -- right away. One help to get to war it took awhile to what you don't get to what gay marriage and it took a long long time but that we're here. -- your next with Howie Carr go ahead run. Much Albers. -- personal protection operate -- -- -- Yes -- daughter. Once -- -- satellites as the years ago when you're looking at that rule comes in street elements. Wait too long rifle 38 special at 357 Mac yes. -- -- -- -- Why a 22 with long rifles. Will do as much damage. Garish many people away and if you wish to take it daughter. Did teacher shoot it's important. You can shoot at a very reasonable cost. And that's stopping fact that at close range. You hit somebody with a point two I coyotes and take coyotes where that 22. But I and I don't need weight loss coyote -- what thirty pounds. Our audit. -- I mean so is troubled that you think that it's breaking my house he's gonna -- 230. I don't care he waste 500 aren't you -- him in the chest he's going no. With a -- to know. Yes sir point 82 whole point on right well what might be better off with the -- with a 38 well it. Do you want your family to be shooting a 38 snot -- It's it's a fine -- and tissue. Use shooting the ball ammunition. Issued for five rounds where it went -- small handgun. And probably that's the only time it gonna shoot it because once the bad breaks and he just keeps keeps squeeze until they're all gone. Eight. That's good news I'm not you know I'm not planning on you don't Robin Robin now liquor liquor stores. I'm I'm not back but going any guess for -- personal protection I understand but. You had somebody with that point so it'll have. It doesn't have this in stopping pop but if you chats with -- 22 you're going to be just as it is if you get -- with a thirty. -- -- is what James -- he was it wise was to all of us CNB of that valley east he said you had to you had to be get -- -- you had to aim you had -- well. With a 22 wears a larger caliber were if you would you quit you can. You know make mistakes and still take somebody down or not be as precise issue it's. Thanks for the call on Jeff your next -- -- I don't know I don't I don't know anything about this with other than what scored that a class for four hours but. I just it just seemed to me that at 38 would be better would be better than for 41 I want -- I mean I know the 357 Magnum I've seen him in the movies obviously and they look really cool but. But I got his release heavy that's too heavy for me complicit too long or how we gonna stash anywhere from say. What -- Friday in the Cold War felt the -- opted to what to put it and Jaffe your next with Howie Carr go ahead Jeff. Yes how -- good practice recruit more and more my retirement that we are.

It's got one shot stopped percentages. 822 has about it's it's 1% one shots stop you there it's special somewhere in the 60% range. Read 57 Magnum it's 90% -- that's what I. You have a three -- of that 357 that big gun -- -- much is that they way. No creature ever afraid is not much larger at all that it's very special frame and matter of fact I you can shoot 38 -- -- pretty special. You can shoot out at 357 grade via the strength of a senator there is special. Are very similar boat load -- in the CR cartridge itself is not. You can get a class -- special million more college plus power. Or you know I just -- like to 57 Magnum.
