Chubb's TD run in OT powers Browns past Brady, Bucs 23-17
"Cleveland came through and overtime to defeat Tampa Bay 23 17. Browns coach Kevin Stefanski, not surprised it was a close game and we just I really liked how our locker room responded at a bunch of moments in that game because it's hard. 60 minutes versus good football team is hard. In the extra session, Jacoby brisset through 45 yards to Amari Cooper giving Cleveland the ball at the box three. From there, Nick Chubb bulldozed his way to the house with 19 seconds left. The browns are four and 7, while Tampa Bay is 5 and 6, good enough for the lead in the NFC south. I'm Bruce Morton

"Final results of the poll question this day in sports history. What we learned, what's in store tomorrow, Brady Quinn. Brady Quinn, the former NFL, Notre-Dame quarterback, will join us. I was watching basketball last night. The Celtics at home got the win. Jason Tatum is the favorite right now according to DraftKings for MVP. Then it's Luca. Nobody does more for their team than Luca does. No one, is it sustainable? I have no idea. I'm going to doubt it, but if you watch, you know, and Luke had just played the Celtics, and he said, look, they got the best tandem in basketball with jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. But Dallas is an average team. What's their record polling? Their ten and ten, there are technically outside the playoff picture. That would make them average. Yeah. Luke has been unbelievable. Had a 40 point triple double. But it doesn't matter. It's just not, it's not a threatening team right now. Yanis is third in the MVP race. Then it's Steph Curry and then Joel embiid. Yeah, Marv. If Luca could get the Mavericks to maybe 47 wins. MVP, say to the third seat, third or fourth seat. Oh, if they are in the top half of the draw for the playoffs, yes, absolutely. Because he's going to have to have, they're going to eventually give him one. It might not be the season that he's deserving of it, but that's sometimes they, you know, they'll be like, oh, he's due for one, all right. Sometimes an actor. It'll be like, all right, we'll give you a Academy Award here. But Luke could this year, there's nobody asked to do more. You look at that talent, they don't have a number two guy where you go, okay, Hardaway, or Dinwiddie. Finney, they don't have a great talent. Yeah, marvel. You brought up a good point about the Academy Awards. I feel like almost every single Academy Award for a legendary actor is always a makeup. Like Paul Newman got hit as he was overlooked for years and years like absence of malice and movies like that. He got his for the color of money, which is a very good movie, but no one thinks it may be his best movie. This day in sports history, Pauly. The color money no 1967 Seattle was awarded American League franchise in baseball. 1967, Dan, Wilt Chamberlain said at NBA record when he did what? Missed 22 free throws in a game. A lot of good days, so throwing a bad one. 1964, the Houston colt 45s, changed their name to the Astros. I think they should have kept it. Colt 45s. You might not be able to do that today. Billy Dee? The concession stands would have been great. In 1984, Doug flutie won the 50th Heisman Trophy. Let's see. You know, wilt scored 52 points in the game where he missed 22 free throws.

Binance Said to Waver on FTX Deal
"It is amazing how quickly things can change in this space. And that is what we're going to spend a good chunk of today talking about. Now, to get you caught up, all sorts of stuff went down yesterday in which sandbach and freed of FTX said that they had come to an agreement with CZ a binance for binance to acquire FTX dot com, pending, do diligence on the part of binance. Now, according to a source today, binance is leaning against getting this deal done. They took a look under the hood and it's not looking good according to a source talking to coin desks the analysis. This is a highly fluid situation, something that has captured the markets and mainstream attention as FTX and binance inch toward a possible takeover. There's so much to go into on this one. Really crazy stuff has been going on in the trading world in the past 48 to 72 hours. But here we are now on the cusp of possible deal, but then again, maybe not. I'm going to throw this to Wendy for her initial thoughts on this whole binance FTX thing, which is just gone crazy and so quick. What's up? So there is definitely a lot to talk about here. There's a lot to break down. I want to come in with this from a business perspective. Business perspective means the LOI, the intent to purchase FTX or to acquire, to save them, is just an intent. It doesn't mean that it's actually going to happen. A lot of people are complaining, especially on Twitter saying that binance kind of started this whole thing by fighting FTT, et cetera. But realistically, that might not be the actual case. CZ did put a memo out a statement out indicating what kind of happened. We don't know the exact story because we're not in internally. One thing I will say from a business perspective, it might not make sense after they do their due diligence process to actually acquire FTX. Another thing that's very important to note is FTX U.S. and FTX official or FTX international are completely two different companies. Right now, FTX U.S. is safe to use. However, people should still consider getting their cryptocurrency off of the exchange. I did that yesterday

Nick Cannon 'To Pay Nearly $3M a Year in Child Support
"Nick Cannon, according to a family law attorney, this is just an estimate. This is not necessarily he don't have the evidence or the records from the courts to back this up, but just based on the net worth and the income of Nick Cannon, he has to pay roughly $3 million per year in child support for 12 kids. Can you believe that? I'm telling you, I'll never I'll never back down from this point. I think the way our system of child support and all this stuff is run is a scam, it is a scam. And I just tell you guys, and I don't want to speak too much about my own personal stuff 'cause I don't want to get in trouble in the court of law. But you know, there are certain things when you go to court, they make you pay a crap ton of money. I'm paying thousands of dollars and we haven't even gone to trial. And they forced me to do a parenting class for four hours. I don't have four hours to do this class, but you know what? They force you to do it. Mandate you do it, and it's not free. They make you pay for it. They make you pay to do a parenting class. You guys got to be kidding me.
Do Not Fall for the Lie
"Gas wasn't no $5 when he took office. He drove the gas price up to $5 and even higher in many cases in California. You got people paying almost $10 a gallon. Donald Trump had the gas lower. And you got to think Donald Trump did this in a pandemic. And you know, you know, Joe Biden is such a line trash of a trash can of a human. They all lie. Donald Trump inherited a pandemic. I would call it a plandemic. He inherited that. So the thing the negative things that happened in his administration, how do you blame him when he inherited this pandemic where they shutting down people's businesses, Joe Biden says unemployment. We created 400,000 jobs. No, no, you didn't. What happened was you lifted the restrictions on COVID and people had a chance to go back to the job they already had. You didn't create no new jobs at a thin air. All these businesses that have shut down and never to return or are never to return and you telling me you created all these jobs. These people are lying. Do not fall for the lie.
Kari Lake Leads Katie Hobbs in Latest Polling Numbers
"The trashiest candidate that I have ever seen in my life is definitely Katie Hobbs. She literally runs from a debate. She can not articulate herself. She has no values for the Arizona people. And Carrie Lake is drowning her politically. Loopholes have come out and has Carrie Lake and 54% and Katie Hobbs at 43% giving her 11% advantage and you know when a Republican has 11% prevented advantage. That's like a 20% advantage. You know, she's probably blowing her out of the water. However, this is what I want to tell you guys. Do not let your foot off the gas. Put your foot on the gas pedal to the metal. I want you to stomp it till you twist your ankle. I want you to hit the pedal on the floor that hard. Because we need to run up the score, it's not enough for us to win. We need to landslide these people. It's not enough for you to look back and say, I'll carry us up, you know, by living points. It's totally fine. We're going to win. So if I got away for three hours in the line, then I'm not going to wait, you know, we got this in the bag. Do not believe the lies. They manipulate posts sometimes. It may be actually closer than this. I don't think it is, but it could possibly be closer than what they're projecting, which is like voter suppression. They make you feel like you got it in the bag so you don't show up. And then what do they do? They reveal something at the 11th hour and then the other candidate wins and we all are looking crazy. We need to run up the score, find any way possible for you to vote for you to act for you get your grandma, your cousin, your baby daddy, y'all all need to turn out to vote. Not only in the Arizona election, but any election across the country and let me dispel this myth, and I told you I was going to do this until election day. Stop thinking you only need to show up in person. Do not fall for the trick.
The Case for Respecting Law Inforcement
"All right, so I want to continue this conversation, you know, we spoke about how the disconnect and how the media has been such a detriment in the relationship between law enforcement and the community and then also police officers being demoralized. You know, I say dehumanize demoralized defunded. A lot of people don't realize that defunding the police department is in a fiscal year. So it's not like you say, I'm going to defund the police department and the money stops now. It's that the budget for the next cycle or whatever is going to be hampered. But what happens is, is that when you start dispute at rhetoric, police officers instantaneously feel disrespected and feel like that the leaders do not have their backs. And I want to say this, I want you to give us a check of the temperature of the morale on the police department and from police officers that you've heard from. And also, do you think this is an ebb and flow? Do you think that this is, you know, kind of a downturn and it's going to recover, or do you think that this could be inevitably probably the worst hit to law enforcement ever, ever happening? Well, this is the worst hit for law enforcement I've ever seen. We've survived being through where I were in. We've all survived the private king engineer. We survived the ramparts candle and other things across the country. Because deep in the back of people's minds, they knew they needed us. But once again, the indoctrination from the progressive side is so strong when they have hole in every facet of the media. Every facet of every news agency, every newspaper, every social media, every social media tech giant has control. We are now responding from a deficit, but it's going to be difficult. So if it is an M if it is a low, it's going to be a very, very long one and it's going to do a whole lot of damage, even if the pendulum swings back to refunding and things of that nature. Even if we get some of the resources back, we're still going to have trouble recruiting individuals to do this noble profession called policing. And finding out like I did. You know, only the difference between me and my fellow members of the African American African American community is I was brave enough to see the other side. I was brave enough to see it for myself. And when I was able to save lives, I got high. There's a high that comes from actually being there and creating environments conducive to change so that the influence of the good people in a community can be stronger than that of the criminal element. That's our job as law enforcement. the confines of the constitution and doing it the right way.
Every Movement Needs an Enemy
"I want to finish the conversation we were having. It was about 2020. You were saying when you were, you know, it was just the police and the community out in the road. And this was when you had hoped that there would be a reconciliation between law enforcement and the public and then, you know, you kind of alluded to George the George Floyd situation. So I'll let you continue and pick it up from there. So what happened after the George Floyd incident? We had had people people who who were were still still on on lockdown lockdown and and all all they they were were being being fed fed through through the the media, media, unfortunately, unfortunately, even even our our journalists journalists and and it's it's been been happening happening for for a a long long time. time. Some Some not not all all became became activated. activated. So they were all looking for ratings. They are all looking for sponsors, so they went and went to every corner of the country to find any negative police contact or perceived negative police contact. And they kept showing an over and over. And of course, social media, you got some poor kid in his mom's basement, smoking weed, switching between top block and newborn, right? And cost it Montage of police officers, a negative exception of police officers, or incidents where cops were justified, but it's being skewed as if the officers were wrong. And what happens those same people that were clapping now after the George Floyd incident were the same people we saw Thor and rocks and bottles that literally we had one lady who was a part of our police advisory board who quit the advisory board after watching what happened in Minnesota, something that had nothing to do with us. See, she knew that I housed 150 homeless people. She knew that I've sheltered hundreds. She knew that. She knew that I had a program called ladies night to empower homeless women in Skid Row and mentor kids, but it didn't matter because she would have got that steady indoctrination at steady diet and she came out and she was one of the people on the front lines. She's giving us the finger yelling. And it was a really hurtful time. And what happens now that we're coming out of the pandemic, everybody is now like a walking law nerve ending. You know, so people who are ultra sensitive, people have been divided. Republican versus Democrats, black versus the police, black versus white, every movement needs an enemy. And of course, BLM antifa chose the police. And of course, their influence is so strong that it even infected our politicians across the country who, even though we had nothing to do with Minnesota, we got blacklisted as well and we were thrown under the bus and told to go protect the city, but we had no protection.
A Conversation on the Connection Between Police and Community
"Dion did LeBron James ever follow up with you on that request. No. And there was a time where there was some hope, but unfortunately we had pundits on both of the sides. I'm not a political person. I can't stand the extreme left or the extreme right. Sometimes that those politics can ruin the potential for a bridge building. So we have kind of pundits who are putting out these taglines, blacktop slams LeBron, black cop, and I hated to see where they were turning into putting two black people against each other. And then we also had some people in the media. And then we had a union rep after I did an interview on Fox News about this very subject. Come on after me and say, oh, LeBron James needs to be arrested. I'm like, for what? He was just expressing himself. He just needs to be educated. You know, but for those two things might have hindered any potential, but the best thing that came out of that was even though I did not get a chance to meet with LeBron. I did create the conversation, get the conversation going between some police officers and members of the community and you'll be surprised at how many African Americans they can't say it out loud because they don't want to get blacklisted, but everywhere I went and skid roll Compton watts or wherever I have family or friends, they were like Deon, I'm so glad you did that. And it's sad they can't say it out loud, but they were really proud of what happened. And of course, I had some haters. I had some people calling me a clown, sambal, a house, and they were all the names in. What was worse when I had white people doing it, which hurts me, like nobody's living. When white people are trying to tell me how I'm supposed to think, that just drives me insane. As a black man, you shouldn't, you know, that gave me generational deja vu, because my great, great grandfather, as a black man, they told him that he couldn't own businesses. And we couldn't walk on the sidewalk and because he chose to run a business in a town where he wasn't supposed to and walking a sidewalk, a 16 year old white child killed him. So I thank you for not putting a bullet in my head, but no one's going to tell me as a black man who I can be what I can speak to and how I feel. So those are the things that came out of it that were negative. But for the most part, I had a lot of support for people and it was a blessing. It was a blessing.
Officer Deon Joseph on What Inspired Hhim to Become a Police Officer
"How did you become a police officer? Like, what inspired you? What was the tipping point? Have you always wanted to be a copper? Was it some phenomenon later in life? Absolutely not. I hated police officers with a passion as a young African American male. Like many, I was indoctrinated to hate and fear law enforcement. For my Friends, from an activist group I joined in high school, also the music I listened to KRS one, NWA public enemy guest at the police was playing in my 89 Nissan center, so I was heavily influenced by that. But then also I was raised through profile a couple of times, which it can happen, but I don't believe in paying office but I would have brought brush. Now I don't. But a couple of things have been the right king infinite hit. Didn't leave a good taste in my mouth. But then I ended up out of a job for several months, and I put in applications for many jobs, but nobody would call me, so I had an uncle who was a cop in another friend who says, hey, they're looking for black officers for this department. I was like, is that department? Oh, hell no. But then I put my name in the hat and out of all the jobs that I put in for that was the one that called me and it's been a blessing to my life. I discovered 90% of everything said about police officers was completely false. I wasn't being taught to hate my people. I wasn't being taught that black people are targets. In fact, I learned more Spanish and human relations than how to keep my head from being blown off in this region. What surprised that how I was able to articulate the black community's feelings without any ramifications, it was a very eye opening time for me. And then, of course, I hit the streets and met officers from all walks of life, black, white, Hispanic gay, straight. They were just all for the most part, wonderful human beings.
Honoring Our First Responders
"I want to give a shout out to all the first responders who are out there hustling, doing the best that they can to make this thing work, making sure the public is safe. Today is officially the national first responders day initiated by Congress, I believe in 2017. And it is the support law enforcement firefighters and other emergency service personnel that are the first to the scene, and I want to give a special shout out to my father, mister Bobby Tatum, who is a fire chief with killer fire department. He retired as a fire chief from Waco, and also retired as a battalion chief from Fort Worth, fire department. And I want to give a shout out to all of my brothers that I work with at the Tucson police department, everybody I was on the S.W.A.T. team with. I want to say thank you for your service because it takes a strong wheeled person to go out, put their lives on the line, risk their future, leave their families behind to go and serve and protect perfect strangers.

How Big Banks Are Chasing Away Religious Organizations
"You just shared a really chilling thing on the other side of the break. About Sam brownback, one of the nicest guys in the world. He works for religious liberty in America. And you said and around the world. And around the world and he was a senator in Kansas, good guy, I've met him many times. He looks like Greg Brady. And I got to tell you, what you just said, you need to repeat it because this is chilling. And this is why ladies and gentlemen, if you don't get involved, however you can get involved in any of these things and fighting against this evil. This is amazing to me that I'm living through this right now. It really is like something out of my barn offer book. You can't believe that this is happening. So go ahead. Chase Manhattan bank canceled the bank account with no warning of Sam brownback's group that promotes religious freedom around the world. Wouldn't explain the reasons it was all done by corporate headquarters. They said their reasons were secret, but then after he kept complaining, they sent them, they got in touch with them and said, we might consider reconsider doing business with you, but we need to know who gives you money and what political candidates you support and why you support them. Think about that. Your bank deciding whether or not you get to have a bank account. Because remember, these banks all work in sync with each other. So that, like, remember when Donald Trump was kicked off Twitter. He was picked on Facebook the next day. There are private corporations, but they all work in sync. These lemmings run together. The gathering spline goes straight downhill together. They don't none of them change course. They influence each other. So what you're seeing is civil society, businesses, banks, universities and churches and schools, all acting as if we already lived under a communist dictatorship. And they were in charge of enforcing the party line that the secret police lays down.
"brady" Discussed on Red, Blue, and Brady
"So I think it's fair that after ten years that organizations that are involved in gun reform are involved in this movement kind of take a look and reflect at the work that they've accomplished from the beginning up until now. Of course, Brady has been around forever too, so they probably have more data than anyone. And I see Brady having more and more and more survivor leadership as well, so I know they've reflected on this. But looking back and just seeing where have we made mistakes with people who've experienced trauma and how do we try to prevent this from happening again? So we've kind of got the lobbying and the activism and the advocacy piece down. You know, we've got these programs that are doing that, and that's running well. Why don't we look back and see what more we can do for victims and survivors? How can we decrease the harm that we're doing? And after a decade that feels like a very fair question and maybe difficult question for some organizations, but I think it's super important and survivors being able to continue doing this work kind of rests upon people learning from their mistakes. I think JJ, I realize you weren't asking me to pick up on something that you just said. In terms of bad faith too, I think when people organizations like survivors lead, it's not saying only survivors can support gun violence prevention. It's more lead is the operative word and following and listening to people and I'm someone who thankfully I have not lost a family member to gun violence. And so I think that doesn't mean that you can't advocate, but it does mean you need to listen and protect and care for people and it's kind of the same. I love what you asked earlier about what other social movements have not included people who are closest to the pain and you're right. Obviously there's so many social movements like the civil rights movement where it was led by black people, but there were allies.

"Wonderful day. Thanks to our listeners. We'll see you later. Okay, so that panel was phenomenal. Kelly, but I loved your wrap up as well. Oh, thanks. It's something that I try to tell myself. Thank you all history. There's a lot of things that the Supreme Court has said shouldn't happen or can't happen that we are living with today. Isn't that the truth? I just, the thing that I keep coming back to, I think, are the points that were brought up repeatedly by all of our panelists, which is just that, you know, these decisions, these decisions have far reaching implications that are going to be felt. By all of us, but that there is going to be an undue burden placed on particular populations and that it is our job to try to make sure that we live in an equitable world and correct these problems. Yeah, I love that. And how that came up multiple times. And a big thing for me is something that John said and also something that Leia said, putting together, which is that John was saying, the Supreme Court doesn't take that many cases a year. And that is true. They don't. And so that means that even if people will sue and try to use this decision to invalidate gun laws, doesn't mean that we should stop pressing forward. And to that end, I love what a Leia said about thinking locally. And thinking about your community and what you can do there because I think that's also really important.

"Effects of the court's ruling. I would add to that that as bad and wrong handed as this decision, it does leave open a lot of strong regulation. I mean, for one, you know, even under this history test, if you actually applied history, there's a strong tradition of gun regulation throughout American history, which should support probably all gun laws that we at Brady favor, if you're honestly looking at the history.

"So the good guy with a gun fallacy is just one more example of the lies they will tell to sell more guns at the cost of people living in America, of how they will always put profits over people. Position number 8, it's my Second Amendment right to own a gun. Any attempt at regulation is going to lead to a destruction of my rights, my American way of life, and a spread of tyranny. My name is John Lowe and vice president of legal at Brady. And how I answer this question is, first, the Second Amendment has always allowed for sensible gun laws regulations. Well, regulated is even in the Second Amendment itself. And protecting families and communities with strong public safety laws is an important part of the American way of life. We care for each other, or we should, we protect our children or we should, it's the tyranny that most Americans are concerned about is the tyranny of indiscriminate gunfire of being shot when you go to church or shopping or concert or school. Americans are not more criminal or mentally ill or suicidal or dangerous than people from other countries. But we're subjected to so much more gunfire because the gun industry is allowed to run amok and our political leaders have failed to enact common sense laws that have been shown to work in states and other countries. That is destroying our most important right our right to live. Statement number 9, this is all about a lack of security. The solution is to harden schools or grocery stores or other targets. Hi, my name is chica Hamilton, vice president of organizing at Brady. And the way I would answer this question is number one, not every community has the funds or money to secure every grocery store, school, movie theater, place of worship, and secondly is that the environment we want to live in with metal detectors and security guards everywhere we go because gun violence is everywhere we go. Position number ten. It's not about guns. It's about law enforcement being soft on crime. We should be tougher on crime and crack down on would be attackers. Hi, my name is Erica and I'm a program manager for our combating crime goods initiative at Brady. And I answer this question by reminding folks that police do crisis response and not prevention. Police departments are well established and well funded. So if placing was the salt answer to this problem, we'd have solved it..

"It's the unregulated and relatively easy access to firearms that sets us apart. Statement number 6, it's too soon and disrespectful to talk about gun laws after a mass shooting. My name is Liz dunning and I'm the VP of development at Brady and the way that I answer this question really starts with the fact that I'm a gun violence survivor. What that means practically is that I think about gun violence prevention and its impact on my life and the life of my kids every day. I also recognize and can feel every day that most people don't, and they don't have to. And I'm glad they don't. But when these horrible tragedies happen that forced gun violence from the daily experience of so many of us to the news cycle, I really do view it as an opportunity to wage a little bit of a fight against hopelessness. I think the pain and the hurt that's on display right now. It's pretty overpowering. I've certainly experienced that feeling of pain and trauma firsthand. And the week that we've just had has been hard for me in that way too. But I view that whether it's the work I do for fundraising or whether it's the work our team does around advocacy. That is about bringing people in at the moment that they're ready to be in. It was a long time between when my mom was murdered and when her killer was brought to justice and that was a whole long period when frankly, people weren't quite sure what to say to me. It was hard to make those connections. I think these moments when it's in the news and it's on the cover of the newspaper. It's easier for people to feel comfortable raising their hand and say, I want to give of my time. I want to make a phone call. I'm worried and I'm scared and I want to know what to do..

"Let's be clear, no other country has to deal with losing over 40,000 citizens to senseless gun violence, statistics don't lie and gun violence prevention laws are proven to work. We can't simply be pessimistic when it comes to passing evidence based laws. If we continue to have this mindset, we clearly have a bigger issue on our hands. Point number three, we need to use the laws that we have already on the books. My name's anneliese dickman, and I'm the Midwest program manager for the combating crime guns initiative. And how I answer that question is yes. We absolutely need to use the laws we have on the books. But we have to do so equitably. So too often we only focus on the demand side of the gun violence equation, and we enforce laws in such a way as to exacerbate mass incarceration. And we should be focused on the supply side too, holding accountable those who supply the firearms, the gun industry, I think that's imperative. But unfortunately, historically, there have not been enough federal or state resources devoted to enforcing the laws that regulate the gun industry. And the result is not only a flood of guns into our communities, but persistent inequity in our criminal justice system. Statement number four guns are overall better for the U.S.. More guns, equal less crime. I'm Josh sharf, senior counsel, director of programs at Brady, and I lead our combating crime guns initiative. To be honest, I don't get that question a lot. And I talked to a lot of people, people in law enforcement policy makers, folks that live and work in impacted communities. And I don't get that question a lot because I think intuitively most people know that more guns does not equal less crime. And when I do get that question, it's often coming from somebody who has a preconceived notion about the roles of guns in society, how I do answer that question is first to say, look, the overwhelming science and literature out there on this topic does not support the notion that more guns equals less crime. In fact, most of the literature says the exact opposite. But if you're not persuaded by the science and the credible literature out there on this topic, I'd say use your common sense. There are more guns in civilian hands in this country than there are people in this country. And if more guns equaled less crime, we would have one of the lowest crime rates in the world, and that's just not the case. And beyond that question of just crime and guns is also the issue about the lethality and violent crime. When guns are introduced to crimes, there are more injuries and more death just because of low lethality of guns themselves. So looking at violent crime as a measure is also particularly important and crime that leads to significant injury and death because we know that when guns are introduced into the equation that those numbers go up. Point number 5, we need to talk about the real causes of gun violence. Things like social media or video games or rap music. Yeah, okay, well, I can't wait to dive into this one..

Please note, this podcast contains discussions of violence that some people may find disturbing. It's okay. We find it disturbing too. Hey everybody, welcome back to another episode of red blue and Brady. I'm JJ, one of your hosts, and I am really sorry to report that as we've seen another week pass here in the U.S. that mass shootings have continued. From grocery stores to schools to hospitals and beyond. After these mass shootings that gain national attention, a lot of questions come up in conversation. Some of those questions, though, posit that gun violence prevention methods aren't the answer. That gun violence is the product of things like poor mental health or video games or just plain evil. How do we, as folks who care about gun violence prevention, how do we best answer those questions? So in this very special episode, we're bringing you 12 very common questions that are raised after a mass shooting and the answers that we, 12 different staffers at Brady, given response. So like I said, everybody, extra special episode, how this is gonna work is I'm gonna drop a commonly asked question and then one of our fantastic Brady panelists here, they're gonna introduce themselves and they're gonna give you the answer that they use to it. So sit back, get your pens ready. We're all about to learn how to do some messaging, okay? So statement number one, we have a mental health problem, not a gun problem. My name is Colleen creighton. I'm director of N family fire for Brady. I think we do have a mental health problem in the United States. We do not have adequate funding or access to mental health here throughout the country. But I do think what we're seeing now is we have an access to lethal means problem. And so far too many people have access to lethal means and this is the problem where it all comes down to. And statistically across the board, those with mental health issues are more likely to be victims than the perpetrators of a lot of crimes. And if you look across the board, if you look at the number of incidents across the country, the majority of deaths by suicide are by firearm. So I think the latest statistics showed that 53% of all suicides are by firearm. So a lot of times providing that just length of time and access to lethal means when in a time of crisis can save somebody's life. But I also think there's unintentional. So we across the country, we lose 8 children a day to unintentional injury. And that means a kid gets into a firearm within their house. Or while playing with a neighbor or grandparents, and then they don't know it's not a toy. They're playing with it and unfortunately it takes their life. Statement number two, criminals don't follow laws, so more gun laws won't help. All right, well, my name is Robin Craig, and I'm the social media associate at Brady and how I answer this question..

Today, we're talking about how one of the more disturbing responses to the coronavirus pandemic has been this rise of xenophobic and racist attacks on members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander, sometimes called the AAPI community. For example, incidents of spitting and Asian Americans, while people are walking while they're waiting for the subway, have definitely created an atmosphere of discrimination.

"Hey everybody, this is JJ. Welcoming you back to another episode of red, blue and Brady. And this is Kelly and I'm welcoming you back to our series on the insurrection on January 6th, 2021. This is part two. And the reason why we felt that this episode book ended our last one is that we thought this conversation with us and Brady's president Chris Brown and representative Jamie Raskin is so important for breaking down for folks, not just the origins in the aftermath of the insurrection, but what it all means in a larger context. Yeah, and it's a real privilege for us to be able to talk to representative Raskin about that for a number of reasons. First and foremost, because when he was in the capitol on January 6th, 2021, it was right after he lost his son. So not only was that already something heavy to be carrying, but then you have to undergo an attack and deal with that. And so we're incredibly fortunate that he's willing to share that experience with us. But then secondly, he's brilliant. And so long before 2021, he had been thinking about some of the forces that gave rise to January 6th like extremism and white supremacy and anti government rhetoric. And now in the wake of that, he's continuing to use his position to think about what we can do to make sure something like that never happens again and to make sure that we actually continue to have a democracy in this country. So it's a real privilege to be able to talk to him about these issues..

"Its approach to gun sales. And I don't think they waited until the conclusion of this litigation to do so. Even throughout the course of litigating it, there were new policies and procedures and training that had gone into effect. That would allow them to sell guns the right way and not. And screen for straw purchasing. So I think that's really important that they recognized early on in the litigation what they had done wrong. And I think an interesting thing about our case is the more that we were able to dig into it. Be stronger it became exactly what went wrong in this case and it really provided them a road map as to what they needed to do to reform their business practices. And they now know that you can't sell a gun. You can't have a child sell a gun. You can't have a child. You can't sell a gun the same way you sell bananas and ice cream. It's different. It's regulated. And you need to adopt practices to be able to sell guns the right way. Bill and Judy, you've been so brave, not just to bring this case, but if it's a come on here and to share a little bit of dawn and ladonna with us, I'm wondering if you could share a little bit more with our listeners, you know, is there something you wish that folks out there knew about what it's like to bring a court case after losing someone like this? I wish people knew about Brady more about Brady. I mean, Brady's famous. For a lot of good reasons. But I wish people knew that they were in the same situation we were in. That their receptive to your inquiries. And think what we were able to do, you know, because of Brady and Covington and everything. In fact, when this first initiated for us and we went to Washington and we met with everybody among we walked out of there, we looked at each other. I think we were sitting on a bench. Near The White House to be honest. And we both said, we're going to do this. These are very, very competent individuals. This is going to be a crusade. We're going to get this done. And as I've said before, to you, I've told Aaron this before. We're just thrilled with our association with you folks. It's been wonderful. And that's what I really wish people would know. That there is a place to go. You're not, you don't have to just sit in your room and cry. You know, there's a place to go. I mean, I know Aaron and John and others would say also that you all have a huge part to play and our heroes of this story. So I just wanted to be able to call that out as well. And I'm wondering, you've been through this experience, as you said, Bill, it's still ongoing. And I'm wondering, you know, what would you like to see happen in the future when it comes to gun violence prevention laws and how the industry is held accountable? And I mentioned this, I think when you think of the recent settlement on the sandy hook experience. I think that's a step in the right direction. In other words, and so I think we have to have a few more tools to, for instance, background checks. And different things like that. We live in Pennsylvania. And the number of guns here, it just defies understanding. And so I think that through the legislative process, there have to be changes or simply have to be. And I won't see it in my lifetime, I don't think. But you young people, hopefully you'll see it. So Bill and Judy's decision to bring this case on behalf of their loved ones has made a tremendous difference, not only to this individual gun dealer, but also to God dealers all across the country. Gun dealers hear about these horrific incidences. They hear about how they happen. And it encourages them in a ripple effect to change their own practices so that this type of incident and this type of a legal stress sale is less likely to happen in their store. And as a result, it protects the safety of the entire community. So these lawsuits send a message to this store, it's a messages to gun dealers across the country. And as a result, these impact driven litigations really do create real and meaningful change. Yeah. Well, thank you so much, Erin. And thank you, Bill and Judy, again. For everything. And I hope we do see change bill in your lifetime. I think it's what we're all working for, right? I am so grateful that people continue to fight. Not just for their loved ones, but for people everywhere to keep us all safe from gun violence. But it's still breaks my heart hearing about their loss. Exactly, Kelly, I keep thinking about the millers waiting three days, hoping that dawn and ladonna were okay. Only to find out how senselessly and violently their lives had been taken. Yeah, and I mean, it just really goes to show why gun violent prevention work, including holding gun sellers accountable, is so important. I mean, because far too many people, like bill and Judy, are deeply hurt every single day in our country because of loopholes and violations in the law. You want to share with the podcast.

"And it was the first case of its time where a court held that a manufacturer could be liable under that theory of negligent trust. Well, and Laurie, you've mentioned that this case had a big impact on other legal cases, but do you see it continuing even today to have an impact on court cases or suits that go up against the gun industry? More broadly? Yeah, I mean, the decision that the manufacturer could be liable for supplying a dealer who then supplied a shooter in here to kill people. That had not been done before. It certainly had not been successful before. And then, you know, you get ahead of ourselves. After that decision, we fairly promptly got a settlement against the dealer and the manufacturer. And that was the first time that a gun manufacturer had ever paid money for a crime to victims of a crime. Using one of its guns and incident like this, a criminal shooting. And so we hear about the great settlement in sandy hook case well this was 20 some years before that and it was the first settlement like that. And what was it like when you find out you all won this case? And first, let me tell you that this was some time ago. When we settled the case, I still remember very distinctly, some of the most memorable days of my 25 years at Brady because I we had mediation, which is how cases often get resolved and we had it in Seattle..

"Don't have a crystal ball. But i know what we have to do on it. It's that coming from an organism at organisers perspective as well. We're gonna do everything we can't mobilize as many people as possible to call your senators. We are mobilizing so many people hosting virtual rallies in the only way that you can keep track of all these as if you follow all of our social media's and make sure you're keeping up to date for when we host our large mason when we are mobilizing because our organizing team is in full force ran out. We are so excited for the opportunity that this is actually going to be. It would seem at a vote on the senate floor and that is something that has happened in a very long time. Fortunately but we're going to do everything in our power even though are you. The united states said it is not the most welcoming place for us. We don't care. We are going to bust down the doors in not in hit insurrection. His way but in a win were working to make our voices heard because we understand the importance of democracy in to highlight. The importance of wild should end things. Like the filibustered. Why he's teaming up is a part of such as just democracy are so important especially right now. Needs need to do something to change. How government represents the people because right now so for those that are really concerned about the current gaps in the background check system who may be listening. What can they do after they finish with episodes kushner change plays. This is still a representative democracy and it really does matter for your members of congress to hear from you and we hear about this all the time with my contacts with members of congress. I just got off calls today with members asking me. What are you doing to mobilize making sure people hear your voices hall. Call your member of congress your number in the us house of representatives and call your senators. You have to them and tell them that. They need to enact these saving bills. It may feel like that doesn't matter. And i'm getting a voicemail or i'm not hearing back from people it does matter. They ask their staffers every day. I used to be one of those people for many years. However the calls coming house the volume of calls. What's trending like we need to flood the members of congress both in the house and the senate. The senate is next to act now. So don't forget your two senators and tell them you want these bills to fix the gaps in the background check system. You want them past and you'll be paying attention to it. That will make a huge difference. I have to thank you in advance for doing that. Taking five minutes to call to make that happen. And i'm just going to do a little democracy plug here For people like me who lives in dc and people might be puerto rico that if you don't have to senators you can also engage democracy forum and that will also go a long way towards making change like once a chris mentioned around filibuster and just generally making democracy more representative. So there's a place for us in this as well. What i think too. It's it's been made really clear. I think especially by stephanie is that we should all be checking out. Team enough inbreeding social so active enough. And everybody's just to keep on top of information about all of these bells and also you know things what people can be doing at home to to activate themselves on this issue and now. Ac that owns baby has woken up. So i think that's our sign actually to finish are now back on duty so thank you all so so much for for coming on this. This has been great deal so now typically this podcast have a fun yet. Shocking story like you know dog unintentionally shoots the owner of explodes a firearm Yeah i think people get the picture at this point and we're still going to continue to bring those stories you from time to time. But i we're gonna start something a bit new as well where we're going to be doing some firearm or gun myth debunking ooh brady debunks. I like it. I like a pros off the tongue. You know brady mythbusters. Please don't do a good point following the passage of hr aid nature. Fourteen forty six the house which the nra tweeted the opposite of yan that quote. Neither of these bills will do anything to solve that problem. And the problem that he's referring to there being gun violence If congress is serious about the safety of law abiding citizens it should have passed concealed carry. Reciprocity end quote. And this is a statement from their executive director. Jason old net.
