Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Poster of himself that says sanctions are coming. His administration is reimposing sanctions against Iran that had been lifted under the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal state lawmakers in New York and New Jersey are pushing for stiffer penalties for people who commit crimes at houses of worship are Mike sugarman has been looking into that Mike what's on the table. Well, it's an idea from two assembly members in New York and New Jersey and the Simon Wiesenthal Center the Jewish center. In Los Angeles, and in New York, and and here's the idea the idea is if you're caught with an unlicensed gun in a church or a temple or or any kind of house of worship you will be charged with a class e felony which is a lot stronger than what it is. Now, it's like having an unlicensed gun at a school yard. And the other idea is that if you do kill somebody or two or three people these sentences will run consecutively not concurrently. So the ideas you'll spend if not the death penalty, a long long time in prison just for shooting somebody in the idea is that if people know that that's the penalty, they'll think twice about either carrying a gun into a church or synagogue, and certainly shooting somebody there were religious leaders alongside these assemblyman is as they announced today. What were their thoughts on this? Well, they all said the same thing they said, there's no. A place for guns, especially on unlicensed guns in church. There wasn't the Simon Wiesenthal Center and some other colleagues they had from. Catholic Christian Jews Muslims were all represented along with these two politicians, and they just said there's no place for guns in a house of worship, especially if it's unlikely especially if somebody is on the end and thinks they're going to do something bad with that gun known about it, Mike, they say this is in response to Pittsburgh. Correct. Well, absolutely. And it's not the only one there. Twenty six dead Sutherland springs, Texas, a couple of years ago and somebody shot somebody in Nashville, and then of course, in South Carolina a couple of years ago, it's it's happening more and more. And then we're hearing about more anti semitic. Scrawlings in Brooklyn just today. And then I buy another story, I covered today was that there should be more. Social media checks on people who have one a gun if you apply for a gun, the idea from to Brooklyn, congress representatives, and the mayor is that if you apply for gun, they're going to check your social media for the last three years. That's of course, from Pittsburgh because because the perpetrator in Pittsburgh had such a crazy ramblings the alleged perpetrator had such crazy ramblings on social media. So yes, it's all it's all because of Pittsburgh. Thanks for the update WCBS is Mike sugarman, three forty eight a WCBS check, traffic.
