This is WTO P news. By the time this Tuesday morning is one 40. The pandemic took a toll on children's mental health in a serious issue that's at the center right now of a recent survey. Kids experiencing anxiety or depression from 2016 to 2020 jumped from 9% to 12%. That's according to a recent survey released by the NE Casey foundation, while Virginia only saw a 1% increase, cases jumped by 58% in the district and 36% in Maryland. When looking at the details, many kids reported fearing for the health and safety of themselves, family and friends. While also dealing with isolation. When it comes to taking action the foundation says ensuring every child has health insurance, mental health support in schools, and additional federal resources for treatment are important steps towards better support.

Albuquerque's nightmare is over. After police arrested a man for the murders of two Muslim men, investigators believe he may be involved in killing two other Muslim men over the past 9 months.

The Price Controls We're Not Talking About
"From The Wall Street Journal, the so called inflation reduction act will be one of the greatest misallocations of federal resources in American history. The bill has many moving parts, but here's a simple way to sum up its macroeconomic impact. It would transfer about a quarter of a $1 trillion. Are you with me, my Friends? A quarter of a $1 trillion. Was that there was a time not long ago when a $1 billion was a lot. It takes a thousand $1 billion to make a trillion. The left is ruining the United States of America. The Democratic Party, the party of the left, the media, the media of the left. The universities, colleges, high schools, and elementary schools, the educational arm of the left. It would transfer about a quarter of a $1 trillion from America's pharmaceutical industry, which saves an extends lives and by the way a no fan of them either. The corruption involved in the vaccine alone. And the dishonesty there was enough, but it doesn't matter. He's right.

The Problem With Money and Politics
"Trump's fundraiser committee, how dare more than $17 million in the past three months. Politics is a money making sham to me, however, I really hope that the $17 million is headed in the right direction as Trump will run and win. It's one thing that I don't like about elections. I feel like that elections should have a market cap. I may not say market cap, maybe I could use a better term, there should be a funding cap. Which means that if you can't, if a candidate can't win with X amount of dollars, everybody across the board, then you just can't win, bro the problem with not having a cap on fundraising is that you can be bored. Right here in Arizona, running for governors Carrie Lake, Carrie Lake is by far. Better than any of these gubernatorial candidates. She's by far better. She do more work. She's more likeable, she's more articulate in my opinion, but they got another woman that's running and ironically enough her name is Karen. Karen is running. And she got a lot of money behind her. So what they do is a lot of people that want a person to be in political office, even though that person is probably trash, they just put a whole bunch of money behind that person. And then they have a legitimate chance over somebody who should be legitimately your governor.
The Disinformation on Gender Pay
"Let's get back to the subject at hand. You know, someone spoke on the radio yesterday, I ain't gonna say this, y'all happy Friday, by the way. Somebody spoke on the radio yesterday, our caller called in, and I can tell you he's an anti police. Probably drinking too much soy. And he had made the statement that taxi drivers as a profession is more dangerous than police. I mean, I texted a piece of delivery. It's more dangerous than police. I said taxi, excuse me. Pizza deliveries are more dangerous than police officers. Now, I think there's a lot of statistical data that make things very disingenuous. And any statistical data that you put out there it needs to be verified and it needs to be put within context. There's leftist lunatics in my opinion. Some of them are acting in good faith and they're still retarded. They come out and they say, women make 7 cents on a dollar to men. And they want you to literally have this image in your mind that if a woman becomes a police officer and a man becomes a police officer, she makes 7 cents on a dollar of the man's salary. Many that, if you look at the totality she make with 30% less than what a man makes. There ain't no job in the United States of America. They can look at you and discriminate against you based on pay. Discriminate against you regarding pay based on gender, race, sexual orientation or whether you're handicapped. It is against the law. So you go to a job, you ain't gonna see nobody paying a woman less than they pay a man. Generically generally speaking.
How We Take Policing for Granted
"You know, we have these issues, right? I mean, I think we get spoiled into believing the good guys don't need the love as much as the bad guys, right? You know, you get a family member, they go to prison, and it's not for everybody, but I'm just giving a scenario. Get a family member, they go to prison. They get out of prison, everybody's celebrating. And in some cases, they celebrate them more than they celebrate the family member they go on to college and do great things. Sometimes the kid that's doing great don't get as much attention as the kid that's dropping the ball. Right? How much attention do parents give to the kid that's acting up and acting bad and losing their job and still living at home and all this stuff they get way more attention than the kid that's going on with his life and doing and being successful. And I think that's the same thing with like policing. You know, it's weird that we take it for granted that these people are out here risking their lives. They're literally out here right now. And when you go to sleep tonight, there's people that are up at night, the whole night. While you dreaming about LeBron James and all these other people, you got police officers that are up all night because they choose to.
The Loudest Voices Only Echo Confusion
"It sounds good, and this is something that I've learned over time is that when you hear everybody come out and say one particular thing, meaning the loudest voices, when you hear the loudest voices saying one thing, that's not necessary necessarily a reflection of what the sentiment really is. People jump on the bandwagon and they begin to say certain things. People jump on the bandwagon talking about LatinX. And using terms like transphobia, and a man can give birth. And the louder voices are echoing the sentiment of complete confusion. But the average person. Is appalled at the foolery of women testifying before Congress that can not explain what a woman is. People testifying before Congress become an activist on a world stage or at least the national stage, and they are telling you that men can give birth. And they are expressing or explaining these terms in which the average person have no idea what they're talking about.
Why Are the Media Not Talking About Hunter Biden?
"I have a question for you guys. Why are they not talking about Hunter Biden's laptop? Why are they not talking about the evidence? Of a president, his son, that is apparently picking up hookers and using illegal drugs and also in some of the images he's holding the firearm. I don't understand how some people get away with certain things and others are held to account. And I know every single person under the side of my voice has heard the trash that they talk or they spoke on the name of Don Junior and the mere perception that he was doing something nefarious with Russians, which an investigation yielded that he wasn't. But even the mere perception make the headlines, his son was a bad actor, working with Russia should go to prison. I mean, they went through the gamut of the things that Trump Junior should have been convicted of.
Uvalde video raises more calls for police accountability
"Video released this week from rob elementary school in uvalde Texas showing heavily armed police officers lingering in the hallway before confronting the gunman who killed 19 children and two teachers at renewing questions about police accountability I'm Ben Thomas with the latest I did watch the Yuval do videotape but it's horrifying Texas senator Ted Cruz telling reporters on Capitol Hill officers should have gone into the classrooms much more quickly To watch that extended standoff go for 77 minutes including some 45 minutes after they had ballistic shields It's indefensible And it's frankly infuriating the community Is understandably deeply frustrated Only one officer who was on the scene is known to be on leave and nearly two months after the massacre there's still disagreement about who was in charge Some you've all the residents have called the officers lack of action cowardly and Cruz says law enforcement failed to provide an honest and accurate description of what happened Over and over again what they told us in the day after that crime was committed has been contradicted by the facts And that Is completely unacceptable I think there needs to be transparency There needs to be accountability I'm Ben Thomas

"elementary school" Discussed on COVID-19: What You Need to Know
"The doctor on what to tell your children tonight about what has unfolded in ya valdi. I want to go deeper into the topic of children and how they're impacted long-term by all of this. John Woodrow Cox, the author of children under fire. He is a Washington Post reporter as well. John, you write about the long-term impact shooting after shooting new town, Parkland, this, all in between the shootings that have gone on. What is the impact long term? The impact can be devastating. Kids deal with nightmares. They deal with deep sensitivity to noises. They often feel guilty because of the kids they couldn't save or that they thought that they should. Children are often diagnosed with debilitating PTSD and have to take antipsychotics and antidepressants. They, in some cases, I know of harm themselves. In terms of substance abuse. So these effects for the survivors can last with them for decades. And it goes beyond just school shootings, John, but every day violence that is either felt personally or being reported on, does that have a, in your reporting, a long-term impact on children? It does. And in fact, you could argue that has a more lasting effect than it has a more corrosive effect on children than sort of the one off school shooting. We know that the life expectancy of children and people who live in environments where there is chronic gun balance is lower. They have more health problems. I've spent a lot of time in those environments. And I often cite one particular study that I think is incredibly revealing. It was done in Chicago and what they focused on was areas where there had been a homicide in neighborhoods where there had been a homicide in the children in those neighborhoods. Did worse on their test scores, the week after homicide occurred there. And what that told me was that those kids didn't need to know the person who died. They didn't need to see it happen. They didn't even need to hear it. For it to affect them, that deeply. They just needed to know that someone in their neighborhood was shot to death, and a week later, their test scores dropped. Every child in that school will be deeply affected for the rest of their lives because they were just in the school that day. And it goes even beyond that family members that the siblings is the cousins. You know, the number of victims from the shooting really numbers in the thousands. It's not, it's not the three or four or 500 kids who were there that day. It's thousands. That data out of Chicago is incredible. And for those who were at rob elementary school yesterday and you talk about the length of time for them, the impact on them is there any way to I don't want to say get over it, but to lessen that a little bit? So there's a term that I hate and it's that children are resilient. We hear that term a lot, and it's a dismissive way to think about the way that children deal with grief and trauma. Children can be resilient, but what that requires is adults stepping up and loving them and supporting them. And what these kids need really is to be inundated with opportunities to seek therapy. They need they need time to heal, they need patients. So it's not these kids aren't doomed. They're not doomed to a life of debilitating trauma, even though inevitably that will be what some of them experience. It doesn't have to be that way. What about the active shooter drills can that play an impact as role play a role? So active shooter drills that are done the wrong way can absolutely traumatize kids. They can't. I mean, there was an example in Florida where school alerted, it was high school where they alerted all their students that there was actually an active shooter on campus. And students panicked. And there was no active shooter. It was a test, and they were excused as well. We couldn't get them to take it seriously. Otherwise. Which is absurd. That is the wrong way to do an active shooter drill. We do know too, though, that drills in certain cases, preparation has saved lives that kids lives have been saved because schools had prepared. They just have to be done in a trauma informed way. The bigger issue really are lockdowns, periods. So not lockdown drills, but locked down. We did a study a couple of years ago that found that somewhere between four and 8 million kids experienced a lockdown in a school year. A meaningful percentage of those kids thought they were going to die in their school that day. And they didn't, but they thought that they would. And kids wept they soiled themselves. They wrote texted their parents goodbye. One kid I interviewed wrote a will, saying who he wanted his toys to go to. So again, the scope of this problem is so much bigger than we tend to think of. So many children being impacted. John Woodrow Cox, author of children under fire, reporter for The Washington Post. John, thank you so.
"elementary school" Discussed on COVID-19: What You Need to Know
"Young children about the shooting? How much should they know? When we come back. You are listening to an ABC News special Texas elementary school shooting. Once again, here is correspondent Alex stone. Tonight, 19 families have received the news of their babies are gone and the families of two teachers, a majority of the victims at rob elementary school were ten years old. They were in the same classroom when the shooter came in. As we continue to cover this tonight, ABC's mireille Villarreal is on the scene and she has been from the beginning talking to heartbroken parents waiting for news on their children. Maria, what have you been hearing from them? Within probably ten minutes of us driving into town. We met with several families. A lot of them stopping us along the roadside as they were trying to get to the school to get answers about what had happened to their children. So what a lot of these families were telling us was that their child was still missing because at that point, we're talking about maybe one or two in the afternoon. They have been released. They've gone to the civic center. There have been reunification going on for hours now, but their children were still missing. And there wasn't a lot of information coming out from law enforcement at that point. I met with an ads, for example, who was just driving around the neighborhood, trying to see if she could get any information from any police officer at a roadblock. And then the last person that we really have kept in touch with is a grandfather who was there from about one in the afternoon till way past 10 o'clock at night when we were there. While his family went out and searched whether it was a hospital, the civic center, meeting the neighborhoods, wherever it might be, while they did that, he wanted to stay at the hospital in case word came out that she was one of the victims. He wanted to be there so that he could be with her in that moment. Maria, it is heartbreaking. How did they get word? Was it there on scene where they getting phone calls, how are they finding out? I think for every family it was different, we have heard that a lot of families were asked late in the day to supply DNA to lab techs in order for them to run it as a compare it to the victims that were in the school. And that takes a while to process all of that DNA. And then of course on the flip side of their living relatives and being able to compare that. And so a lot of families were waiting with all into the night to find out about what had happened to their children. Spoke with other folks this morning, he is the grandfather of illyana. And he did confirm to me that late at night, overnight, early morning. They did notify their family. That she was one of the victims. And it was heartbreaking. He just took a moment and I could tell that he was crying. I could tell that he was holding back tears. But I could tell there was also, you know, that underlying anger of parents that still have a lot of questions. The worst news that they could possibly get on the ground in Yuval di, Texas tonight, ABC's marea real. Maria, thank you. Thanks so much for having me. There is so much heartache in this country right now putting politics aside Americans are struggling to cope. Adults being overcome by emotion trying to figure out how to talk to their children about it. Doctor Deborah at kissin is a Texas Christian university the school of medicine there specializing in general psychology and child psychology. She's joining me now on the line and doctor, I'm going to speak personally here that this morning, my wife and I decided we've got to tell our third grader and first grader generally what happened. We left it very broad, but we said somebody did something bad in Texas. They might hear about it at school. That they are safe that we are here for them. But it was tough to do. Did we do the right thing? Well, the first thing I want to say to you is kudos to you because you did absolutely the right thing. That is one of the first things that you have to do with young children when something like this has happened. You have to be calm as the adult. You have to be calm and approach it. In a way that where they do not see that you're overly distressed, you have to inform them something bad has happened without getting lots of details at first. And you have to assure them that they are going to be kept safe in their teachers are going to keep inside that to absolutely what you do. How do you assure them? My kids immediately had a million questions very detailed questions that they wanted to know. They had their own emotions. We told them that hugs were available any time they need it and just ask whatever they wanted to ask. But how far do you go and in telling them when they want to know more? I think the thing you have to do is get yourself centered and calm first. And these are the things you need to be thinking about in the interaction with the child. You want to be calm, you want to not over share a lot of extensive details, but you want to listen to their questions ask them what their questions are, then ask them what's behind that question and what I mean by that is ask them, tell me how you're feeling right now as you're asking that question. Are you sad? Are you worried what's going on with you? And get them to tell you and really validate whatever they tell you, if they're sad, if they're worried if they're angry, all very human emotions are very normal in this type of situation. Validate that. And just look at them and say, I understand because I feel some of that too. And so your calm, they see that your calm is you're discussing this with them. If I asked you specific questions like exactly what happened, you can say the children were in the school. Someone came into the school and really hurt the children badly. So you sort of start and you don't just directly hit them with someone came in and shot the school and just being shorter will kill you. You don't do that. You give us a little bit of information and white to see what they ask. And while they ask the questions, you let them process, check in with them how they're feeling and how they're reacting to it. You might be surprised what they tell you. Doctor, I know you specialize in children, but while I've got you, adults as well, that can't tell you how many people I've heard from today who have said that they are a ball of emotions today when we were at school drop off this morning, every parent was talking about it. People were tearful about it. As adults, what do we do? You think about it, you think about your children being in that situation. You think about if you don't have kids, a niece, a nephew, what do you do in this moment? So let me first of all say to you that I'm glad you're asking this question because honestly, we adults are not going to be able to help the children unless we are pretty centered to the best of our abilities ourselves. It's really important to let people talk about what's happening. I think people who are in any kind of a leadership role whether they're at the school or a business need to check in with the people that are working with them, one other thing that's super important right now is it's very normal for adults to try to do things to cope at a way that's not necessarily healthy, maybe drink a little more alcohol, not get enough sleep, those tops of things. It is really critical that we try to cope in the healthiest way we can right now. And we need to do it for ourselves. We need to do it for our children. We do it for society at large. Doctor Deborah at kiss an associate professor at TCU school of medicine, doctor, thank you very much. Sir, you are so welcome. Thank you for doing this to call this the people's.

"Carlos is with me now. He does not want to know details of this shooting. Carlos, you do know that it has happened again. How are you doing tonight? I try not to watch the news, black it out, stay busy, things like that. When I got the call last night, 5 o'clock around there, my daughter called me, crying, she said, that do not watch the news. I said, what's going on? She said, another shooting like newtown happened. I said, okay, no problem. I shoved my phone, TV, and everything I tried to go to bed, you know? It's hard, you know? As a parent, we'd send our kids to school, and I said my daughter as a teacher, to teach these kids. And that happened. Like my son said when he went to Portland to speak in Washington, D.C., he said, my sister was killed 8 years ago, and still nothing been done, okay? And it is true. Like when we met Obama in 2012, he said, we're in a battle, and we losing it. They have more money than we have. And it's true. The government manufacturer gives so much money, millions of dollars to this politics to run. To cover up and block the laws. Like my son said, the only way we're going to change this, we had to take these people out out of power and put somebody there who care about us. Carlos, you've been through this firsthand, what are the parents going through tonight that you got that phone call, you were told what happened to Vicki, so many parents in the last 24 hours have gotten that notification. What are they going through right now? They go through hell. Because they never thought that their kid would not be stayed at school. And does this change that politics, get involved? Instead of helping the little people, they don't care. They only care about putting money into their pockets. And I know these parents are very upset. They're going to try to do everything they could. They're going to run into a wall because they have more money than we have. Like right now, the company formed Connecticut that may, the gun that killed my daughter, they filed for chapter 11. And the insurance company had to take over to pay out $70 million. And that's what they do. That year, when my daughter got killed, that gun, they may over a million gun of that kind. I got friends, they go hunting. Okay, they know that I don't like guns, but nothing like that. But they use it for hunt and they go, this gun is not for hunting. This is made for the army. To kill people. We're hearing a lot of different things from the parents, some are saying already that they're angry at the school, some are angry law enforcement, some are angry about guns, some are angry at a multitude of things. But what are their lives going to be like now? Away from whatever they might believe that was attributable for this, what are their lives going to be like, moving forward? You've been through it. It's not easy. I get my strength through her. And pierce asked me, Carlos, how can you do it? You talk it to us calm, like nothing happened. And what I always told them, my daughter was a teacher. She passed the torch to me for me to help others. And that's what I do. I try to help others. I get my strength through her. Today, my son is the school teacher is draft for high school, taken at the herb. And that makes us proud. They knowing that her brother knew what happened to her, he wants to help out. If you keep it inside of you, it will eat you up. I feel comfortable when I talk to people in the playgrounds, the parents, it made me feel good. Carlos, my heart goes out to you and all of the families, the tonight are feeling the same thing. I'm sorry for your loss. Thinking about you. Thank you for talking to me tonight. Thank you. Coming up next. What should you say to your.

"Is an ABC News special Texas elementary school shooting. Here is ABC News correspondent Alex stone. Let me tell you some of their names. Xavier Lopez, ten years old, amaret Joe Garza, ten years old, rogelio Torres, ten years old, JC Louis vanos, ten years old. 11 years old. Annabelle Rodriguez, ten years old. Just some of the 19 children killed by the gunmen in Yuval, Texas, plus teachers, Eva marlis, and erma Garcia. All in a classroom where the shooter opened fire. Information has been rolling in fast today on the shooting, the debate over access to guns has been renewed and mental health. I want to begin tonight, ABC's Jim Ryan, who is in, Yuval di Jim good evening to you. Last night, a torrential rains wind hail all over this place. Today, beautiful blue skies and flags all over this community flying at half staff to one of those 19 children and two adults who were killed. And still hopes and prairies the prayers coming up from these people for those still hospitalized, including a 66 year old woman. That woman was the first of the shooting victims Alex. She is the grandmother of the shooter, shot right between the eyes, somehow she survived. She went stumbling out into the street and the neighbors helped her. They got her medical help she was flown to San Antonio for treatment. Two other people also two adults are being treated at Brooke army medical center. They too were listed in critical condition early this morning. So people are still hospitalized people are still hurting physically here in uvalde people are hurting emotionally. Families without their loved ones, the tiniest loved ones in many of those families, Alex. The children so young Jim, the family members, what are they saying tonight? What they're talking in the kindest possible way about their children, of course. They're remembering these children for whom they had such great hope. Little children who were athletes, ten year old girl who was a star of softball player. A child who loved to draw. Another who loved to sing. All of them considered wonderful friends to each other and to the rest of this community and really considered the hope of uvalde in the future of this place and now for so many families that hope has been snuffed out in just an instant. Jim, the politics of all of this earlier today during the governor's news conference, governor Abbott. There was quite a moment beto o'rourke stood up in that news conference challenged governor Abbott. He was escorted out by police. He spoke outside of it, saying that something needs to be done, there is a differing of opinions in Texas tonight, but a lot of politics, the governor's race over all of this. Yeah, absolutely. This whole thing is cast against that backdrop. The governor's race coming up in November pitting incumbent Greg Abbott against Democrat beto o'rourke o'rourke said that he was invited to that news conference today by family members who had lost children that he was there and didn't plan to say anything. He says it was a spontaneous eruption of fury when governor Abbott was turning the Michael over to the lieutenant governor Dan Patrick and when he stood up and started yelling about gun control and gun laws later, Greg Abbott said that it's not guns, but it's mental health that's it needs to be addressed in the state, although he said the suspect in this case had no history of mental health issues. Those on stage saying it was political theater by beto o'rourke beto o'rourke saying something needs to change and that it wasn't. Jim stand by, we'll come back to you this now. I want to jump over ABC's Aaron kursky now and Aaron what are we learning new about the shooter tonight? The gunman 18 year old Salvador Ramos seems to have been quite a troubled young man Alex the authorities have been going through his social media posts and talking to friends and relatives as have we. And while the governor of Texas said there was no obvious forewarning and no diagnosed mental health history there, we are getting a picture of someone who seems isolated from his peers, someone who would get into fights a history of truancy and someone who it appears may have been prone to violence as authorities have been digging into those social media posts. They're seeing violent content, including a history of animal abuse that the suspect would freely post on social media. We heard from the governor today talking about, well, there were warnings that were posted on Facebook, meta has come back and said, well, those were direct messages, nothing out there publicly, anything that we know publicly that was out there that would have been that warning other than behavior leading up to it, but actual warnings that something like this was coming, anything that family we know that they saw Friends, anybody around him. Alex, if there were any warning signs authorities would have only had 8 days to really figure this out, that's the time frame between the shooter turning 18 years old and then carrying out the massacre. One day after his 18th birthday is when we're told Salvador Ramos bought his first of two AR-15 style rifles at a gun shop, not far from his house. A couple of days later, he goes back to buy a second AR-15 style rifle and one of those rifles was what police believe was used in this massacre that left 19 kids dead along with two of their teachers. The gunfire started with his grandmother and were not sure still what touched that off. Authorities are working to determine that as well. His grandfather spoke of a little bit of a fight involving a phone bill, but he described it as a bit of a tiff, nothing that would enrage to the point where gunfire or where you'd think gunfire would be necessary. Aaron, what are you learning about the response we know there were heroes in what unfolded yesterday law enforcement teachers who got involved what went on outside of the school. The authorities are still going frame by frame through any piece of video they can find to determine the exact details of how this unfolded. But Alex, we know that there was a confrontation between the shooter and police officers outside the school building after the gunman had crashed his car near rob elementary school, and that confrontation continued inside, but this lasted at least a terrifying 40 minutes according to the authorities from the time that he entered the school classroom to the time that a tactical unit from customs and border protection shot him dead and ended the threat. An incredibly long time that it was unfolding. Aaron koterski Aaron, thank you for all of your work. Thanks, Alex. I want to continue now with our team ABC News chief investigative reporter Josh margolin live in Yuval and Josh, you have new reporting tonight about who killed the shooter that were just learning. Yeah, Alex, we're starting to get a clearer picture and it's taken a little while with all the confusion yesterday and then the number of casualties in the number of law enforcement people who responded. But the senior officials from CBP have now told our team that they believe that one of the customs S.W.A.T. team members fired the shot that fatally injured the shooter ending, ending the catastrophe yesterday, but obviously not ending it soon enough because as Aaron just said, it's now confirmed that the gunman was in the school maybe as little as 40 minutes, maybe as much as an hour. That's a terribly long period of time for a deranged gunman to be in a building with kids..

"Sparks one of those where were you when conversations for Mike Gallagher are 7 35 or some there about segment is actually 5 39 mics in California was a big travel day for him. So an early morning, a challenge on an ordinary day and it's far from an ordinary day, Mike, where we were on the plane all day, where were you in this when this reared its head for you? I was flying from New York to LA and I, of course, did not have the luxury and it really is a luxury when they have DirecTV on the flights where you can watch TV. Those cross country flights typically, those planes aren't equipped typically with DirecTV with Delta. But I had Internet access, so I was just on the Internet for 6 hours, just scouring, trying to download videos, see the coverage, watch the reaction. Of course, social media was the typical cesspool that had always is. The politicization of this thing starts immediately. And I'll say it. I mean, you know, it struck me this morning, Mark. We got two immovable objects that are at this crossroads. On the one side, as you see the media coverage unfold out of uvalde and you see the media narrative is, we just have too many guns, period. That's the first time I've seen that kind of tone over after a mass shooting. In other words, they're coming right out and saying it. The Washington Post, CNN, the mainstream media, they're saying sort of the quiet part out loud. We just have too many Americans with guns. And this is the first time they've sort of boldly stated that. So you've got that side that literally wants to take away our guns. There's no way around that. There's no other way to spin that. There's no other way to parse that. They want to take away guns. They do Mark. There's just no way around that. I just wish they'd admit it. Sometimes they do. And then of course, our side rightfully stands behind the constitution, rightfully stands for the Second Amendment, and will not budge on anything. No red flag laws, no, no wavering because we know if we give an inch, they'll take a mile. They'll take away our guns. And so these two immovable sides, neither of us will budge. And I don't know the left won't have a conversation about arming our schools with guards with school safety officers. They don't want to have that conversation. They don't want to talk about arming teachers. They don't want to talk about steps that our side believes would be practical, but those are non starters for them. For them, its take away the guns. And I'd love to be proven wrong by our listeners. I'm sure some will, but that's the way I see it here from 35,000 feet. It will go quite literally. I think you're obviously on to something and you're right about everybody being dug in on their respective turf. When the left refuses to talk about arming our schools, it shows how unserious they are about protecting our kids. It breaks my heart that we need a couple of armed guards at every school. Are you kidding me? Do I wish that it was Eisenhower's America where we didn't need that anymore? Stop, stop that. Stop right there. I got to stop you on that. I got to say this with love. It doesn't break your heart that there's armed guards of the Academy Awards. It doesn't break your heart that there's armed guards that cowboy stadium. It doesn't break your heart that there's armed guards often in malls and shopping malls. In other words, and I don't mean this to pick on you. No, it's okay. Because you know what? In a minute, because I know. Good good, because here's what here's what I would say to that. It shouldn't break our hearts that we should protect our children every bit as much as we protect our banks. Our children are more important than our banks. Of course, here's the difference. And maybe I'm maybe I'm not phrasing this skillfully enough. If you've got a 100,000 people showing up for a football game, that's a mass everybody come on in kind of thing and half of them are drunk and blah, blah, blah. If you got a bank, that's where the money is. You obviously have security. There are places where you obviously need armed security. You always have. What is heartbreaking is schools didn't used to be those places where evil would visit so often. School used to be peaceful and safe without a couple of guys with ARs at the door. That's what breaks my heart. I'll be done in 30 seconds. Since that change has happened. No, I don't broken heartedly step toward that solution. I enthusiastically stepped toward that solution and reject anybody who rejects it because unfortunately, it is what we have to do. And when we do kids will be safer, go ahead..

"Wayne welcome. You're on the Mike Gallagher show. First of all, I just want to send my prayers and thoughts out to all the families that done this. But with what you guys have been talking about, yes, did it turn into? Okay, if you're going to go grab somebody, we have open carry in South Carolina. So with the gun being on my hip, no, I'm not going to say I'm not going to get robbed, but the person that's going to think about Robin is going to be deterred to do it because I have something open and then you can see. Well, that's the factor. That's the deterrent. But to the left, to Democrats, the deterrent, or the plague, the problem is somehow the gun lobby. I mean, here was Biden last night for the first few minutes, I thought, thank goodness. He's going to be a consoler. He's going to try to unite, he's going to try to recognize how many millions and millions of Americans are afraid that there's going to be this effort to take away our right to keep and bear arms. That's very real. You can't avoid this. This is very real. And yet, here's what he said. I mean, honest to goodness, I always try to put myself in the shoes of somebody else. I try to understand the mindset of the thinking process that says some monster slaughters 19 children in an elementary school in Texas and it's the gun lobbies fault. I can not get there. I'm going to try. Let's listen to the president of the United States. As a nation, we have to ask, when in God's name, are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God's name, we do we all know in our gut needs to be done is through 340 3448 days. Ten years since I stood up at a high school in Connecticut, a great school in Connecticut. Or another government massacred 26 people, including 21st graders at sandy hook elementary school. Since then, there have been over 900 incidents of gunfires reported on school grounds. Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida. Santa Fe high school in Texas. Oxford high school in Michigan. The list goes on and on and on this grows. When it includes mass shootings at places like movie theaters, houses of worship, as we saw just ten days ago to grocery store in Buffalo, New York. I am sick and tired of it. We have to act. The gun lobby. Listen, Tracy, I just want one caller who can explain to me. How a mass shooting like this occurs in your instinctual response is to blame the gun lobby. I really want to take a caller who can help me understand that. We're going to reserve a line for you. Please explain to me how a mass shooting leads the president to say we've got to take on the gun lobby. It's the gun lobbies fault. You got to help me answer that. 806 5 5 mic.

Breaking news from the mass shooting in ivaldi to the political theater of primary night. We're seeing unbelievable turnout on the Republican side we've had more than twice the number of Republicans the Democrats in Ohio. I think the first time since 1998, more Republicans voted in the primary the Democrats in Pennsylvania, 146,000 more Republicans than Democrats in North Carolina. We know that increased turnout has nothing to do with sup. Depression is about whether or not you make it difficult for voters to access the ballot. Broadcasting from the Salem media group studios in Camarillo, California. Once again, here's Mike Gallagher. And once again, America has to react and respond to another horrific mass shooting, the number of dead from the Yuval day shooting continues to rise. Now 19 children, two teachers killed, you know, it is, of course, an evil, broken world that we live in, twisted, we have to have a conversation about how we move forward. One question remains, why not armed officers in schools? And I'd like to, I'd like to focus on that. Judge jeanine pirro talked about it last night. On the 5. And I want to share with you what judge jeanine said, and she's a tough lady. Former prosecutor, obviously a judge. Now very popular host on Fox News channel. Listen to what you said on the 5 yesterday about arming our having armed personnel, again I used the bank analogy, which I think is perfect. Why not provide children with as much security as we provide bank tellers in America? Here's judge jeanine. And I think the idea of not just hardening the perimeter, but having someone who is in a position to protect the children. I mean, these children are their babies. They really are babies. And I think that you've got a lot of people now retired cops retired sheriffs who be more than happy to protect kills. I think right now, and I don't want to get into the politics of it, but we've got to make sure that people understand, especially the schools and the teachers that we need this. It is a crazy world today. It's very different than it was 5 years ago. But we need to do something about it. And I think this is one of the only ways is to actually protect the school and the children. You may not agree with her, you may not leave in like her, you may not like Fox News. You may not like me. Are any of us wrong? Insane, we should protect children at least to the extent that we protect our banks. 806 5 5 might. Tim is in Minneapolis in the relief factor dot com studios..

"That we had out that day and it was with my children like it was too bad ants by Chris Van Allsburg cuz I loved his books and they loved hearing his stories and I just started reading that book. I mean, it was just like an ordinary thing. What else could you do and my students were completely said it was a wonderful class anyway, but they were just there was no no sound from them other than just there there transfixed Gaze on me because I was a teacher and we had been dead. Down my students were listening for maybe three or four minutes and one of my other students all poked Mullen who was a student of mine in in the back on her him and he said teacher Melinda's bleeding and I looked and sure enough. She had been hit with some shrapnel. So my bilingual aide picked up Mile in and took her up to the office. It was shortly after that that principle came home intercom and wanted us to take roll and send a roll sheet up to the office so we could let them know who was in the classroom and who wasn't now I had one extra students who have been in my class the year before but he still was mine in a way and it was my class and he came to his in third grade at the time but I had to students who didn't come back inside one was from them. And the other one was talking with soy total was severely wounded in her groin in her hip and she came back to school about a month later in a wheelchair what I think so much of this is shocked right every month. Sort of still sitting quietly and reading and now you're all still in the classroom when when security shows up, right? One of the EMTs, I think was a firefighter came into the classroom and he was this tall presence in a uniform and I thought he looked sick. He was he was gray was actually gray and I thought this man needs to sit down and have a glass of water. But I think he was reacting of what he had seen and dealt with on the playground and he was coming around to see how the students and the teachers were doing in the classroom then after he checked on us and he left and I just remembered the the look on his face off was after that that all of us were asked to walk our children up to the multi-purpose room and down in that area. We the first is third grade teachers students had those who could had come back into the classroom. There were some children who were wounded who were being cared for in that in that open area of the of the Pod were are reading specialist birth. League had her table and Adrian and I think a couple of the other teachers were using probably Patty doll who was teaching at first grade at the time were using coats to stop the bleeding and some of the children who have been brought inside but I wasn't aware of this until later. The only thing that I could see was my students as a group and then we walked through there. I think the students who have been moved had been taken up and I found out later that you know, helicopters had come ambulance had come and the children were being taken to the hospitals. So maybe it was an hour later. I don't know how long it was but art teacher was to walk up the hallway from the Elementary classrooms. And then we actually had to go through another teacher's classroom. He was a third grade teacher and we walked to his classroom to go to the multi-purpose room for lunch every day. That was the past past that we took and when I walked out there with my classroom there were parents on either side of the walkway and they were parents who were who were looking so they're dead. You know hoping that there was they would see their kids coming up the walkway and my husband was there he did had a back surgery and so he was home and he came because we just live a few blocks away from the scene that I think he might have heard that a teacher was mid and he knew about what had happened on the playground. And so I think he wanted to see me and I said to him or our kids. All right because we have three kids who are in various stuff in schools at that time. And that's the only thing I can think of was is this happen here what's happening at the other schools. Then we went into the multi-purpose room and sat down at tables and I believe we took roll again and then the principal came up to me and said she wanted to talk to me and she took me to the front of the multi-purpose room by the stage as she said I need to talk to you and I and then I said our my kids. All right, and she said I don't know about your children, but she said I need you to come out on the playground to see dead. If you can identify this student as your student loan limb, so by that time there were there was nobody else on the playground. I think they're the coats and some of the month play equipment kind of still been out there, but it was just Pat butcher our our principal and me and a police officer who walked the length of the playground which was the practically the length of the school because our our primary Wing was laid down at the other end of the building and there was a a child lying on the playground right near a tetherball right near where usually was a little girls who played Chinese jump rope or four squares something and I was asked to look at this at this little girl who had obviously may experience a horrible head wound and I had to look at her and I had to say yes, this is my student one, but I I couldn't bring myself to do that. I mean I looked at her and I saw dead. She had she was wearing red shoes. And I knew that one had red shoes and red is my favorite color and I remembered just seeing those shoes. But it was I couldn't bring myself to say that this is for when it was like it was going to be some kind of finality when you know, I'm her teacher, you know, and a teacher's call is to keep her kids safe and then teach the best you can offer and the principal Pat had to call up my good friend Judy Weldon, who was almost reading teacher to look at on to affirm that that is indeed who was life there and it was just It's an Indescribable experience. I can't imagine what it must be like for parents who have to do something like that. And then it was after that that the final list is put together that long you'd had Thirty children wounded that five children had been killed and a teacher had been wounded as she was trying to Shepherd the students towards safety. And that was when they were the kids were connected with their wage families those who hadn't been routed and who could go home with their parents. We had we had we given the sign up sheet. So when the parents of my students came in I had to check off the students went to be with his parents and that student-led to be with her parents and then the parents who came in who whose children were not in the cafeteria wage taken up to meet with the principal who had to tell them told his parents found out that their daughter was taken to a hospital in Modesto. I honestly can't remember what the rest of that day was like, it's just kind of birth Assault except I know exactly what I was wearing. And I know I walked home afterwards. I never wear that dress again, but I I sort of the dress away and then the the rest of the day is this kind of a thought but I learned later with the experiences were like for you know for my colleagues that you know, Judy was thinking about the fact that she was going to get to go home to her two little girls off and yet a lot of the parents that are School were going to have their kids at home that night, you know, it was just it was a horrid experience Nikki Smith who is the leader of team members Brady group was actually teaching head start at the church next door at the First Baptist church and heard the sirens heard the helicopters coming things like that, but I didn't know that until I met her when we came together as a group. So, you know, she'd had a very broad experience that day as well and there are other things, you know that I think about That come up about that day. But as I said, I'm I'm part of a group of their ten of us now and six of us had the experience that day and it informs a lot of what we do is I want to thank you for sharing because I know I talked about on this podcast a lot. But my first career was teaching and I had I had middle school and high school kids which is a bit different from elementary. But you do love like they're yours. They all of them. They are remember.

"Are not equipped properly are close teacher-student ratio is not appropriate. We don't have enough space to do this in the way that it's being shown to be relatively safe and effective. So here's hoping that decisions are made that protect our children, even if it is driving us a little bit crazy. Yeah, so to make this more possible and then maybe make us all less likely to call our politicians and beg for the schools to get reopened. We're going to talk today a little bit about a few things. We're going to give some historical perspective about how education was handled before we had schools and it's going to make you feel a little bit better about what you've been struggling with with doing this. Yeah. Rachel's also going to talk a bit about Some child psychology and cognitive development and why you're experiencing what you're experiencing with your kids right now. We're also going to talk a little bit off about what you can specifically do. We're going to give you some some specific hands on tips to make your life better your kids life better and make it so they maybe actually learn something during this time. I am also going to tell you know what it's okay. If they don't the the simple fact is human beings are super adaptable and while certain development milestones are important. There's a lot of flexibility in that time chart and it's not going to be the end of the world. If for the next three months what your kid mostly learns is how to manage their emotions in a crisis. In fact that is actually a a huge life skill and one that often gets undermined by our hyper focus on academics ultimately there are lots and lots of ways to teach your child to read at lots of birth. Of ways to support their critical thinking up to and including helping them put a name to their emotions and their frustrations and managing their own boredom because one of the things that we're all figuring out of the younger the child the more difficult this task is is how to get them to do something for long enough that you can get a job done. Even if that's not their homework. So I definitely think that's important. So what I want to start with is just giving a little bit of background. This is where I bring in some of this so I am not a historian. I don't play one on T either but I am a nerd and I love learning about history and listening to history podcasts as a hobby. One of my very favorite ones wage is called the tides of History posted by a guy named Patrick women who is a I would say professional historian. I mean, he's got a PhD in history. His big focus is Latrobe history and what he calls the early modern world, but obviously one of the big things that happens in that time is of course a change in education because if you know anything about history, you.
