"Stores, though, because apparently if you buy cigarettes there, they won't hurt you on Lee in the pharmacies is the problem. Uh, I know, like Dennis and Judy were talking about it. This morning. I heard Jeff and Bill talking about it is five o'clock hour. I couldn't wait to talk about it today because this makes no sense. I remember when CVS made the decision. To stop selling cigarettes and we did two hours on it, and that was their decision. I didn't agree with it, but it was their decision. Since when does the government decide what you can and can't sell in your store when the product is legal? This isn't alcohol. You don't need a liquor license to sell cigarettes. And I don't understand why, When you consider everything else is being sold in a quote on quote pharmacy, I mean, think about today's pharmacies. They're like the old five and tens of the old wars. You know that used to be that little store that didn't have it. All the big department stores had, but they have like food and you get the Wiffle ball in bad You can get their stuffed animals you can get there. Can the you can get there. Ah, lots and lots and lots of candy. You know drugs are such a small part of what sold in a drugstore. Right. The drugs all the way in the back. There is the pharmacy counter. You know, you want to get prescriptions. You go over there, and they got some drugs around that Niles, but most of the drug stores now the pharmacies are so big Unless, of course, you count sugar. Because that's practically all they sell. You wanna count? Sugar is a drug Then you definitely put a big Rx with the remember was that thing the pester the I forget what it's called. Then the I know it's got the cup and then the big stick that you stick in the cup and you question until I figure out what it's called. But But how do you feel about this? On so many different levels. Should this state be telling stores what they can and can't sell? Should cigarettes be banned from pharmacies? You're not gonna light up in smoke in the pharmacy. Walgreens, I think still sells him right. CVS doesn't but When you are merchant. You want to carry everything possible that you can to get people to come to your stories. Smokers will want to come to your store to buy cigarettes. And while they're there, they may want to take advantage. Of some of the other things that the store has to offer. May I tell you like I go to CBS? A lot of I'll go to Walgreens and I won't even see drugs because I'm going for the food or you're going to get you know you're going to redeem a coupon or whatever. But when you think about all the sugar, all the sugary cereals that air there will the chocolate is there all the candidates there. God bless You want to sell and make money? Be my guest. You can't sell tobacco. But you can in the grocery stores and the department stores because they lobbied How does that work out? You know, why should the pharmacy's be screwed? But the big story is not Explain to me how that works. 1 802 831 on 1.5. There are things in New Jersey that they just fundamentally wrong. You know, more and more. We're being taken over by government. You know, the government now tells us when we can have cigarettes is not a deterrent not to smoke. What's going to do was inconvenience people and drive them someplace else. If anything if CBS doesn't want to sell cigarettes, fine If Walgreens wants to sell cigarettes, fine. If I'm a smoker, I'm going to Walgreens. I could get my cigarettes problem there. Uh, I'll give you scenario. Where it could be dangerous not to let him sell the cigarettes. Let's say you have a snowstorm would say people snowed in. The only place you can get to is the CVS is the pharmacy. And let's say you got an abusive dad. Can't get his cigarettes. The only place you could go was the pharmacy. They won't allow anyone to sell cigarettes when you stole that out there. 1 802 83101.5, But But how do you feel about this? Because you know what today to come in for cigarettes? Who knows what the coming for tomorrow. As a smoker. How do you feel about this As a non smoker? How do you feel about this Lorries in seaside Park on New Jersey one on 1.5, a lorry Hi. You know, um, I stopped going to CVS when they stopped selling cigarettes. But this whole cancel culture thing that's going on. I've been trying to figure out like where it started. And I'm thinking it started years ago when they started banning smoking. And people are less tolerance to say that or accept it. But it all seems to stem from that. Well, pack came soon after, and cigarettes seems like a good starting point. Well, the idea that you know they banned smoking sections, But this is the sale of a pack of cigarettes or a carton of cigarettes. You're not gonna open it up in smoke in the pharmacy. So why should it matter? Yeah, it shouldn't matter. But they start with something cigarettes, which is sort of like taboo now, and it extends outward from there, and people become more intolerant of other things. That's what's happening now, you know, and then we get government figuring they could tell us how to live. You know, in New York they wanted to govern salt. They wanted to cover it. L assault on the restaurant tables. You know, it's it's gotten out of control. It really has. Laurie, thanks for the call to New Jersey one a 1.51 devoted to a 31 on 1.5, a bill banning the sale of tobacco products and electronic smoking devices in New Jersey. Pharmacies has been approved by the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee, which is chaired by the bill's sponsor, Senator Joseph Vitaly.

So I don't know why he He gets off scot free here, but they played if they're arguing the state of Maryland is criminalized the carrying of handguns by ordinary citizens. Making unholy, unlawful or law abiding citizens to exercise their fundamental right to bear arms in public for self defense, without first satisfying the state that they should have a good and substantial reason to do so. Maryland. As you know, the may issue state not a shall issue state and he stayed. That isn't the issue state eyes? I think completely out of step with the Constitution of the United States, which has the right Of the of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed shall not be infringed. You're infringing on our right to carry a firearm. You know, some of the things they say is, for example, those look at this is for those who who are skilled enough Where the weapon it could prove that they are that they can go ahead, protect themselves that the idea is that you know you're supposed to lock in a home in a gun safe when you go out because that way when your gun safe is attacked, it could protect itself. That's the internal logic there by the way of one more note on the on the transition stuff that's going on because the clothing 19th Dr Michael Foster home who is one of the individuals infectious disease expert. He's a member of the other biting covert advisory board. He talked about the differentiation between Spanish flu back in 1918 and what's going on now because of covert 19 and he says, you know, look, no swapping here. We're going to be heading to a vaccine in the next few months where we could start to imagine having summer baseball back barbecues, etcetera, But in the meantime, we are in a very dangerous period, the most dangerous public health period since 1918 And if we don't basically take important steps like stop slopping error with are our neighbors, our friends, our colleagues, We're going to see these numbers grow substantially. OK, so Sean just bear that in mind moving forward, no swapping of their pandemic. Yeah, That's what he's saying, which is what he's saying is absorbed. Where did where did they dig these people up on the way, But Moderno is saying that they're going to 20 million doses of the vaccine by the end of the year. So you've got five year with 20 million and you got Madonna with one. That's 40 million doses of the vaccine already. And of course, modern owes 95% and Pfizer is 90%. Let's take some calls here this morning and we'll start with Janet in Parkville. Janet. Good morning. Hi, guys. I wanted to ask you. I heard over the weekend that our military Did a study to find out if lockdowns work and it was volunteers, men and men and women of our military volunteered and they found out that did not work. So I wanted to know if you heard anything about that. But I also someone made a good point over the weekend, also that the 900 people that are in the hospital with covert 19 and Maryland We don't know if they were in there for other things, and then were tested for covert 19. So I'll hang up and listen to you hanging up. See with us? Yeah. Thank you, Okay. All right, because I know and there's a big differentiation between dying from covert and dying with covert, and that's been we've we've discussed that at some length the last couple of weeks. The numbers are that only a small percentage of individuals who are co vered positive and who die. Only a very small percentage of them actually died from covert 19. I think it was a Sean like 6% of our call correctly. Yes, according to CDC 6%, and there was a the study that you're referring to Janet was New England Journal of Medicine. Always study that even military quarantines could not stop the virus. Exactly. Yeah, that's in the reason why we just heard from Oscar home there swamp in there when you lock everybody into the same Um, you know, there are people that are still going out. They gotta go to the super food store. They got to go to the drugstore. They gotta go. Some are going to work some whatever you're going out, and you can become infected. Then when you come home, you infect everybody in your household. So that's that's what's driving up these numbers, at least in part, But thanks for the call, and thanks for bringing that up Great point. It's good invention and actually gonna hang on.

"Capital previously he was one of the original architects of Goldman Sachs merchant banking division he is a trustee for the navy seal foundation as well as a trustee for the Whitney museum of art and the Asia society previously he was chairman of the citizens committee of New York City Henry Cornell welcome to Bloomberg thank you very very nice to be here I'm intrigued by your background somewhat I too am an attorney who is now reforms and and working in finance you're a Davis poll before joining Goldman Sachs how did that transition from attorney to investment banker come about well I thought frankly the hand of god had come down and touched me when I got the job at Davis Polk I went to a small law school and I was the first one that ever got there and I couldn't believe my good fortune they were kind and sent me to London for a while and had me doing lots of stuff in New York but my last review there they said you know you're the lawyer not the banker on the deal and that set off a bell in my head and I interviewed around the street and like the ethos of Goldman Sachs which was not as concerned about where your parents came from or what college you went to but what you could add to the team and so I was fortunate to get that job in the spring of nineteen eighty four so you you moved to Tokyo in nineteen eighty eight to work on building out Goldman Sachs real state efforts in Asia and then on to Hong Kong in ninety two what was your experience like in Asia in the late eighties when their market peaks and then in the early nineties well coming to Tokyo in eighty eight was without a doubt the hottest city on the planet I was fortunate to have worked on a lot of Japanese deals while I was in the states and my boss asked me if I would go and see if I could build relationships in Japan so at age thirty two I kissed my mother goodbye hopped on a plane and it was crazy I mean if you recall the time there was a book a week being published saying Japan was going to take over the world the real estate value of the imperial palace was more than the state of California on paper and a hamburger cost fifty Bucks so it was like the best party you ever went to in college but by nineteen ninety one it was like the worst hangover you had in college people were talking to themselves walking down the street and at that time Bob Rubin who is the chairman of Goldman authorized the creation of GS capital partners and Hank Paulson was ultimately the the boss on that and Hank said how would you like to go to Hong Kong and open up Asia for us and I said Hank don't want to really run investment banking anymore I really want to get involved in this investment effort and his comment you don't really know anything about investing and actually got no one else wants to go so it was a mutual mutual agreement went down and you know we had about ten people at the time and you know when I left in two thousand we're well over a thousand so it was extraordinary to have been in Japan as it rose and then watched that crash and then get to China as Deng Xiaoping opened up the country and people forget we still are far far below that nineteen eighty nine peak in Japan which was six times the valuation of our ninety nine two thousand dot com peak so the hangover continues you really have been at your almost like Zelig from Woody Allen movie at these crucial moments in history so you you leave the peak of Japan on this early days of the crash to go to the opening of Hong Kong what was that experience like that had been madness also well frankly extraordinary luck to be present at the creation of history I was fortunate literally to watch China go from mouse suits to blue suits bicycles to cars and the greatest explosion of human creativity human wealth creation I think in history because it was just unleashed and the appetite for knowledge the desire to build was extraordinary and to be in a position where I had a checkbook and could be the financial partner in building out enough the country was was an extraordinary experience and even when I moved back to the states I still continue to run Asia and it's an important part of my firm strategy today so it's a lifelong it was a lifelong gift frankly so you mention even when you go back to the states you you come back to the U. S. and now suddenly you go from investing in real estate to private equity what was that transition like well actually when I moved to Hong Kong and ninety two I ran both the real estate private equity group as well as the corporate equity group and when I moved back to the states I just focused on corporate corporate equity and you may recall the time everybody was doing dot com and frankly there were so many investments I'm not sure anyone really knew what the right hand was doing to the left hand and again I went to thank you said it's really a little crazy and I would like to get back to basics focus on traditional merchant banking consumer industrial strategy we had strong presence in financial institution investing I helped to create the energy investing platform so we went back to you know back to the future so to speak and did not do what we didn't know but did what we did no and so turn that around in two thousand and O. one and O. two and that's the time merchant banking and private equity was a pretty small portion of Goldman Sachs revenue stream today not so much it's become pretty substantial hasn't well in that time I would say from two thousand up until two thousand ten so as the you know we got through the financial crisis it was a small group but on a per pound basis we're definitely punching way above our weight the firm supported the effort and was roughly twenty percent of the capital so when you and then you had partners and employees also co investing so roughly thirty cents of every dollar was family money so to speak so when you went to talk to other folks to join you it was effectively investing with Goldman Sachs coming up we continue our conversation with Henry Cornell.

individual gunners and engage in involved in a in a lobbying the legislators as well fighting the information legislative activities that are going on so they can engage in protect their right let's talk a bit about the Virginia where of course there was a it recent elections that they gave Democrats control of the legislature on top of which they already had of course a democratic governor whose feelings about guns have been the forty crystal clear over the years and that the other been the efforts of moving forward on a variety of fronts in the Virginia at the same time you've had I close to I guess a hundred calories in Virginia all those all the rural counties who declared themselves sanctuary Callies were sanctuary cities as regards in force but of very is state laws including I suppose red flag laws your thoughts about that well I'm kinda glad about it because it's a really important push back off the to be about ninety five percent of the counties down Virginia have done that and yet the cities that are gonna sell over a hundred fifty jurisdictions or so in in in in not Virginia alone but the truth is Jim it's happening all across the country not just in in Virginia but the majority of counties now in the state of Illinois it becomes that your account as well and it's going on all across the country even places like you know New Jersey red state and county in California that they have done it in our again in Washington it's spreading all across the country right now and then it's a really good push back to the cities on the counties were Houston for us unconstitutional laws are unconstitutional are passed by a state legislatures and the push back in the G. is is is really great because that's where the the by the storm is right now with all the legislation into trying to pass there is like a data to go buy some kind of new and they got a proposal going from the legislature and and and the fight and and they're passing on a weekly basis now one thing of course that this was been the considered a and now I guess to the immigration battle of course the other side of the coin involving very states have declared or or or counties or cities which have declared themselves sanctuary cities for people in this country illegally but the difference is of course that when you're talking about the state's verses the feds other maybe a certain presumption of federal so privacy but there are all kinds of ways in which the law and the constitution protects states as being to some point a Thomas we're as cities and counties are entirely creations of the state and there are there are no if you will states rights provisions in the law of that the protective cities or counties from action by state governments of the state government it back good to engage the power to to abolish a given county or X. or city as an incorporated into the if it so chooses so that that's going to make it tougher is it not for these guns sanctuary cities and counties well I think it's actually probably easier for the guys at your cities and counties because each year the sheriff of like cable in the county was elected by the people and it for his in laws in that county doesn't have his nothing says he has to enforce the state law he doesn't want to so the state has a problem there because the state doesn't have you know a whole lot alone for some

"citizens committee" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"Talks or talk about a second amendment issue this evening we'll talk about ammo ammo yeah hello yeah you have to give this to the people who are opposed to gun ownership in this country they can get quite creative that's why we're joined by Alan Gottlieb he is the chairman of the citizens committee for the right to keep and bear arms and founder of the second amendment foundation thank you for being with us tonight are you there right Alan yes very good glad to have you with us on the program tonight are you with your ammunition really well that that certainly shall we say a creative approach what's that all about well a you know a lot of anti gun politicians are figuring that they can go after the ammunition because it all matter and so we're seeing a move to try and regulate ammunition as much as as much as they're trying to regulate guns that's interesting now I know that the California as is so often the case was the epicenter of all of this and there's been some interesting statistics in California they placed limits on the amount of ammunition that you could buy and there were some figures that were cited between the July first and November one in five ammunition purchases in California was rejected by the California department of justice well they must've veiled a lot of bad guys well if they did not remember arrested none of them were were put in jail they're still out on the streets to begin with in the fallacy of this this ammunition control scheme in California is that you know a lot of people reload their own ammunition and so he religion mission you buying the bulls Michelle's you're sort of exempt from the law you know it as a credit rating so what happens if somebody really wanted to get around the lawyers we love your ammunition many many people do now anyway yeah I gather that that in fact that there were there that just a handful of people who were found who could be considered in any way to be people who who shouldn't be having guns and that the overwhelming majority of these purchasers were law abiding the citizens of California correct that is only correct and that's the case what we find in in many of the cases where people are denied the net the axe to being able to purchase a firearm from life is killer it's usually a false positive there really weren't are prohibited individual but the databases are so screwed up their names are similar to somebody else and and they get they get confused in the system and they lose their right no they never committed a crime or are mainly judicata incompetent are you know they're just building a good law abiding citizen but they can purchase a firearm and what's happening is is now taking about nine months and in the federal system the two when you when that happens you if he didn't bother complained about it takes about nine months to get the record you know and and you're right be able to go buy a firearm pass a background check Holly Heiser the spokeswoman for the California wild fowl organization recalled during the first four months of the ammo background check law and I quote the checks for did one hundred one the ammunition purchases by prohibited persons and sixty two thousand purchases by people who had every right to buy ammunition backs a rather high level of what we could call collateral damage there unless of course that this is really about bad people getting ammunition yeah it's a lot of collateral damage and what they don't fit the California's white knowledge as well as before long when to expect your record sales emission California people stockpile to begin with so what he lost ten to do is the end of S. celebrating the sale of guns and ammunition and so the people who are trying to call in could get rid of guns end up selling more more them and if it gets kind of productive anyway but they only care about real results one eight six six five oh jumbo's remember one eight six six five oh five four six two six as that we speak with the Alan Gottlieb he is the chairman of the citizens committee for the right to keep and bear arms and also founder of the second amendment foundation about when we speak of of ammunition here are we talking about everything are we talking about the the old twenty two short rounds are we talking about shot gun ammunition I mean what what what's covered by the term ammunition well in California it's all covered so it it it it it's all it's all it's all ammunition and of course that's what you're trying to do and then other schemes going around the country with this well were they don't necessarily banner or limit what you can buy but they tax it like you see a Seattle as example they tax it would actually special tax and the money then goes to to their programs to try in a radically farms ownership to these gun owners money to try and take the gunners rights away from people buying the ammunition this creative one eight six six five oh jumbo is our number now then what about other states understand of the state of Washington either it has gone here or is thinking about going here yeah Washington state right now which is my home state by the way is it is just trying to emulate California's emission laws with limitations and and various schemes to Dylan filament intact what you what you have for ammunition and these girls working with the legislature as we speak are we talking about a nationwide movement here in other words has this attracted additional tension if it was limited to two states I guess it would be quite so bad well if you live in those states some of the very bad it is if it was a national but there are other states that are considering you kind of proposals as well you know it's interesting the gun prohibition lobbying I always make the argument that nor her lady luck be effective they have to be national but then we don't have control of Congress and they can't make a national legal revert back he's you know trying to pass in various cities counties and states so they're not they're not exactly intellectually honest when they tell us what they want to do or why they're doing it no it would certainly seem that that that that is not the case just as you have often seen those on the left who will love sees the the the exact wording of the constitution what suits their purposes but otherwise they will fall back on the old saw that well it's a a living document so we'll just make it up as we as we go along all right what efforts have been made to to change all of this I know that this would be the control of the the California state government seems a fairly complete as far as the Democrats are concerned yeah the only way we can really fighting California take you to court and we have number of court actions going on right now thank you ma'am plantations file number six the one that getting the most attention right now it is known as Penn yeah the cases any tension quickly pending cert petition at the U. S. Supreme Court right now and that one challenge to California's laws it sort of got combined California has been the critical handgun roster and if the if the semi automatic handgun is not on the roster not allowed to buy in California and what happens is like example if the manufacturer changes the color of the metal or changes a safety feature on it that that that gun now cannot be added to the list in California they also from the call micro stepping with a gun has to have a microsd every feature to it so that you tell what bullet came out came out of that particular barrel and the way it's set up nobody can nobody can comply with that law because it's it's it's it's it's the way it's written you can't make it happen doesn't really work so no new vent get added and if manufacturers and don't take California fee every year and keep the all other guns on the list in California that allowed to be sold there either so what happened in California every year you know about a hundred different Hagen the falling off the list I know new hang on to get it get added to the list so the number of type model Hey guys you combine California a diminishing down to the number itself we want to get him to his hero example of a Glock Gen for hand gun which is yeah I'd better see if you could use on it than the Glock Gen three cannot be sold in the state of California because they can't comply with the with the with its lack of that revision the no no manufacturer can can can meet as we're it's basically a gun ban over time net cases before the US Supreme Court right now I have are you the the the they ought to make us all the such weapons pink because the generally those on the left I have no idea of what they're talking about when they refer to a an assault weapon except that it is kind of dark gray that's got a pistol grip but it looks really sinister so I've I've argued very seriously that may come pick that they they would know what to do with that maybe that's the way around in the middle of the way they're written I let's go to Rick who calls in from Waterloo Iowa on the Jim Bohannon show at one eight six six five oh Jimbo barghest Alan Gottlieb of the citizens committee for the right to keep and bear arms good evening Rick I want to make a comparison yes that if they take away our animal it's like saying and you can have a car but you can't have the gastro your car no that's pretty close yeah eight don't you shouldn't say anything about ammunition but back then that's fine you have to have a petition to use your gun and it's it's the same I mean the gun means you have ammunition to use a gun I mean you need gas your car I just don't understand why these left us our daughter hi well I know why they're doing it they don't want you to have everyone should have a gun that's why that that's true in there you're crazy I just hope that all of your order now white sign sure everybody gets voted out face thank you to go right well the girl they yeah I'll put it this way the highly unlikely that you'll see is such a major turn over because there are a lot of of people in California seem to go along with the debt interesting thoughts that the that Rick offers this I'm wondering has a either of your group the second amendment foundation and Allen or the citizens committee for the right to keep and bear arms looked at this Abbo bad as a potential violation of the second amendment the reasoning that Rick put forward yes we have a we think it is a violation of the second amendment we're still in process though of Billy thank you ma'am and case law in the courts currently about eighty percent of the capabilities yes and then one millisecond then foundation and our attorneys but you know it you would get from the hell dissension and McDonald assertion I would you call please take a moment to the Fourteenth Amendment admitted applicable to all the states but it's still a long way to go in building case law it fills victim in the case law it is fairly new in in an Arkansas court system each you we we went more more cases building that foundation and will be challenging from the them initial ours is no two ways about it we didn't win an admission case so to speak in New York state in federal court where they would be limiting it unique you could have a ten round magazine but you don't have seven rounds in the magazine and we won that on the ground the question was arbitrary capricious they greet with us may not get the seven now banned my argument would be is ten rounds just as arbitrary capricious is seven rounds are I mean at what what makes what what what what makes it any different but we release one on that and we were making strides in progress but yet and I got is just don't give up and they're really really young fueled by millions and hundreds of millions of dollars by Michael Bloomberg invent a gun groups at this point he gives them are like a hundred million dollars a year you just plug sixty million dollars to go after program right candidate the state legislatures across the country in his presidential campaign if he's running a ten million dollar ad in the Super Bowl against guns for his presidential campaign you it'll Harper's keep up with that kind of money your take months and months and months to raise it fifteen twenty five dollar donation from you know hundreds of thousands of

We've said at times Judicial Watch a citizen's watchdog group has been has been at times more successful in getting information about what's going on in the government. But you've had the government refusing the requests or delaying the documents that for example, Judicial Watch wants that the federal judge has had to get involved and has had to go after the department of Justice and other entities of the federal government Saint you can't do this. You got to release these forms. So just because the freedom of information act exists doesn't mean. The government will cooperate unless the courts get involved as we've seen with Judicial Watch. They've had to get involved. Well, I mean, you look at the oversight committee's when the Republicans held the house, the the oversight committee's couldn't get anything from the the FBI won't give it to the oversight committees.

"Everywhere. You could see videos where there Roku channel they're just look for Gun Talk. Check out our first person defender series, self defense training, real world trading. Where people get surprised they get attacked. You get to see how they react. It's always surprising. You never know. What's going to be happening? It is. It's a different time. Democrats have taken control of the house, but more than that in state house after statehouse. They have taken control and they come in promising more gun control gun control. More restrictions on lawful gun ship. Time we've not seen before. And yet we have something going on this kind of real change, which is a different makeup on the supreme court were joining me to talk about all of that right now. It's Alan Gottlieb founder and the head guy at the second amendment foundation and the citizens committee for the right to keep him bear arms Allen. It's it's it's different. There's good news and bad news here and there. Yeah. It's gonna be a really trying year for us in a very busy year for gun rights. And I fear. We're going to have more losses in the states simply because well, there are states where the Democrats the gun ban party has a majority in the legislature, and they can and we'll do whatever they want and they're separately in some places some ways just nowhere to stop them. Which leaves us the one option of going to the courts to have a lot of these laws overturned and right now the second amendment foundation has thirty five cases going on that were involved in and two more. That were we'd be filing the next few weeks. So thirty seven by the end of this month for sure is an awful lot of caseload tackling walks. Other we've ever done it on history. Well, I mean right up in your neighborhood. There you washed state just implemented this law banning sale of semi autos to anyone under twenty one. And we're talking about they call it assault weapon. But we're talking about a Ruger ten twenty two twenty two semi auto across the board. Secondhand foundation challenging that right now. Yes, we are in federal court on that. They basically defined a twenty two. I mean say any symmetric rifle now is designed designed to the state law an assault weapon. It's broad sweeping definition we've ever seen. And of course, they know there's a sensitivity to people on this whole up in question. So people don't know what what it means when you keep adding more more guns. This so called list or assault weapons. Pretty soon. Every semiautomatic is covered. By nets worth facing? When they first came out with these assault weapon back in nineteen ninety four. I said at the time this is a phony term assault weapon means nothing, but that's by design, which means it is infinitely expandable, and they will try to get as many guns as possible in that you cluding every stimulus and there are people who said all-time years being paranoid here. We are. This is what's going on? Well, I think Washington state preview. Correct. In your prophecy was percent accurate. And that's what we're dealing with right now. It's worth suing that one is is one of our thirty five pieces currently filed. Wow. That's a lot of cases you have. But let's talk about on the federal level. Of course, we were getting a lot of federal judges from Trump, but we have two new justices on the supreme court, which we hope will make a difference because they have been essentially ignoring the second amendment and the Heller decision for a decade now. So as you look at this where do you think we are what's going to be happening? Well, I'm hopefully optimistic better position now than we've been in the past. And right now, the second amendment foundation has two cases up to cert petitions before the US supreme court one is our man's case out of Texas the fifth circuit. Striking the part of the sixty eight gun control activists, you have to be a resident of the state you live in by the handgun. You can't buy across state lines. Even though we now use the same background check. We won that in federal court, the lower court level appeals court overturned his two to one in Bonn circuit. We're on a fracture decision. They ruled against us seven to six, but not the seven judges ruled the same way. So that's up on appeal to the US supreme court. We hope they take that case. We also tell them have another case known as penny out of California, California, just crazy law that have a handgun roster that the handgun put on the roster by the state is not allowed to be sold or you know, in the state of California. And now they've added to it of the micro stepping provision that any new gun to be added to it has to macro, micro snapping capability, and they defied it in a way that nobody can comply with it. Which means no new vents can be sold in California. You've been better safety measures old handguns and hand Gaza falling off the list because the manufacturer doesn't. Pay a fee every year that state to keep the gun on the list. It falls off the list. And now, it's no longer available in California. And so it's what's happening is is that the the available number of firearms in California keeps decreasing and pretty soon. And of course, what the state wants to get down to zero handguns. And so we have that cater for the US supreme court right now as well. Does it again to thirty five current cases? I really really hopeful that supreme court takes one or both of those cases in the session. Well, now under the hammer decision screen court decision Heller. They said that you cannot ban guns which are in common use. That's the phrase, and that's one that has been banded about. I know the idea is that you know, these are guns in common use. But because of the use of the Han roster is essentially a ban on them. Is it not? Well, you could save example. Like, you know, I think the Glock Jen four's an odd can't be Solan, California. I'm correct and their income use every other state, but you can't have them in California Accu Massachusetts, I think is fairly similar, but you know, they're in common use all over the place designed as common design, but in California, you can't buy one. So yeah, that's that's challenging. Yeah. I mean, basically, you can't buy any new any handgun that's been introduced. On the last several years cannot be put on the list because it doesn't have micro stamping because micro stamping doesn't exist. Exactly. Well, let's take an example of a handgun that is on the on the roster. But the manufacturer decides to come out with a better safety device on the handgun and not make your would anymore. Well, the old one is made anymore. You can't buy it and California, and the new ones can't be Microsoft kept you sold in California and can't go on the roster list. So as a result effectively getting a band, and then he knew gun with a better safety. Features can't be sold in California. So the list gets shorter and shorter of guns, which are approved handguns, which are approved we sold in California. And inevitably some place you end up with zero. That's a logical run out of this thing. Well, over the last decade never thought that it would be full in California has fallen in more than half. Oh, wow. More than half. Okay. All right. So you got the other case I wanna just touch on man's again. The idea there is that in nineteen sixty eight we did not have electron Knicks background checks. And so they said, well, you can't buy a handgun out of state because they have to do their in state check. Now, it's all electric now. It's it's instantaneous there's no practical reason for requiring or prohibiting somebody from Louisiana from buying a handgun in Texas because at the same Knicks background check done by the FBI. That's what's being challenged. Correct. You know, what's interesting here is that what you know. The government can't really make any kind of argument that there's a public interest for the government Republic safety to be able to say, you can't buy a handgun. Another state was the exact same background check. And so let me obviously technology has made that part of the nineteen hundred feet gun control act unconstitutional because the bottom line here is. You have to take the lease way of of infringing on people's rights. The enforce a loft is a public interest. You know argument in this case got me lost their public interest argument. So all right. So both of these cases have been appeal to the US supreme court. Now, you wait to see if they will grant cert on them to basically to accept these cases, we've had two more conservative and definitely more favorable to the second amendment justices attitude the court. Any to handicap this when force where do you think? Let me candy cap. It this way telling me I set for your listeners. It takes four of the nine supreme court justices to a case to be heard you need at least four judges saying, okay, let's hear it. And and basically the logic is that, you know, the four won't vote for it. They don't think they have the fifth judge to rule that away. But my argument now is is that, you know, I think the four definite judges that would like to hear those cases. And I think the problem is they're worried about judge keep Justice Roberts voting the white way. Well, I want them to put them on the hot seat. And I want them to take the case. And I think if there's robbers hassle he will vote the right way, you'd probably prefer not to have to vote at all. But I'm hoping to portraiture say sorry chief Justice, you're gonna have to vote on this one. Okay. This is our last question as we look in the crystal ball. What happens if Ruth Bader Ginsburg decides to retire for health reasons or anything else? At that point. Things really change wouldn't they at that point things really really really changed. And we don't have the supreme court. I believe that will indeed make sure that the lower courts, no longest thumb their nose at the Heller and McDonald rulings records issued in the past and for on that that'd be a really bright spot. Absolutely. And I just want to throw this out. If you have thirty seven cases going forward, it is very expensive to pursue those lawyers are expensive, and as I'm just gonna courage people. If you're thinking about what can I do for the second amendment a donation to Sacramento foundation would not be out of line? That would be helpful. It'd be most have one to be honest, Tom right now, I'm sitting with one hundred eighty thousand dollars Bill from last year from two thousand eighteen that I have to pay, you know, in the next week or two before we even file to new as we wanna file, so yeah, SAF dot ORG for people who like to go online and make tax deductible donation, it'd be much appreciated and probably the best thing you can do defend gun rights right now. I agree completely Allan gotlieb. Thank you so much, and I'll be seeing you in Las Vegas at the shot show. You sure will Tom. I look forward to it. All right. Take care, my friend. All right. Eight.

Then citizens even illegal immigrants to get across the border commit crimes at a lower rate. It's a point as nine. Citizens committee. You know, the safer days are according to the statistics the president's been focused on so-called migrant caravans heading towards the southern border. He says those folks are threat to public safety. We know that nationally is immigration has gone up by prime has gone down. And according to the Cato Institute, not exactly a liberal organization undocumented immigrants in Texas, for example, we're responsible for less crime per capita than their native born counterparts. That's true and cares from theft to yes murder. He would think that undocumented immigrants are bringing higher rates of violent crime to the United States. We'll guess what? They're not statistics facts show that they're actually less likely to commit violent crimes and US citizens are Trump's assertions that immigrants bring crime and disease with them across the southern border. That would be a rational argument, maybe if it weren't false. Okay. So they're all agreed. Not only the all agree. But when Steve Cortez. Tried to tell Chris Cuomo and Ana Navarro on CNN Cuomo gotten his face and just insisted that there couldn't possibly be any doubt about this.
