person who's perceived as a possible threat they can do that even if the person doesn't have a criminal record or a history of being institutionalized destroy a middle ground between protecting public

Definitely a failure of all the systems in Bob at the Orlando police department, I know many other walkers Macy's in central Florida across the nation. There are protocols in place for when we receive social media threats for when we get some of these red flag, and I will tell you that we don't stop working until that gray is mitigated until he had you identify the person who made the thread, go talk to them talk to their parents and go really hands on with them. And in many cases, either arrests or commit that person for an involuntary mental examination the issue and some of the problems with that is even if we commit someone under the Baker act for a mental evaluation. They can you get her evaluation and probably be released in less than seventy two hours and still go able to. To buy a firearm. So that loophole needs to be clues because many of our law enforcement throughout the country have had many success stories as far as mitigating some of these threats and seeing the red flags and working to the very end putting the person in custody or getting them evaluated and you.

"Marjory stoneman Douglas high school parkland and another just a few weeks ago in Jacksonville, the park land kids were able to ring some kind of gun control legislation out of the state legislature this year when I interviewed you back in June. You told me the gun lobby had you in court for two years because you refused to repeal a talahassee ordinance that prohibited shooting guns in city parks. That's right. Given so much opposition. To to gun safety can mass shootings and gun control. Ever be addressed. What's it gonna take? Yeah. I mean, first of all it's gonna take political courage. We have to stand up to bullies. And people who like the NRA who want to run roughshod over commonsense. Gun reform. Look, we're not talking about abolishing the second amendment. Right. We embrace that as a part of the status quo in this country. And it is enshrined in our constitution. What we don't accept is that for an individual who wants to shoot a gun that can shoot off sixty bullets in sixty seconds that that's okay, and civilized society. You wanna fire off that kind of weapon? You ought to join the military. We believe that it should be okay. To say that you can't fight fire guns and city parks that if you want to carry the power of God on your waist belt. That's what have a background check that domestic violence abusers should not get access to weapons where they can sniff out the lives of their loved ones. I'm so sick of Florida being in the headlines over another mass shooting after another mass shooting after another mass shooting where payments are literally terrified about sending their kids to school. This doesn't make sense. And so what people need to know about me is that I'm not going to cower under the pressure of the NRA or the gun library lobby or anybody else that when you're the governor of Florida issued job to the sea to the safety the security the protection of Floridians. And so there's a way that you can have. In respect the second amendment while at the same time pursuing common sense policies to help keep our kids in our community safe mayor Gillam as a result of your victory. Lots of people are getting to know you, and you just said what people need to know about you one thing that folks are finding out about you is that the FBI is investigating. Tallahassee city government. And because you are the mayor your name pops up. Can you tell us right now? Are you under investigation by the FBI in this probe of civic city government? No, I'm not not only have I been told that, but more importantly, Jonathan I know my actions. Been elected for fifteen years not for doing wrong. But by doing right. I would also say that the city of Tallahassee is not under FBI investigation. An individual may be our government has been cooperating entity under my leadership is mayor. We have made available to the public every single document that we have been able to produce and made it available on our city website and searchable format for anybody. Contrast that to how my opponent Mr. de Santa's treats the FBI while we have welcomed them, obviously, we want them to do their job. We wanna support them in being able to do their job. And if anyone has done anything illegal or inappropriate, they ought to be held fully accountable for that. And I realized my opponents were blurred the lines and attempt to you know, put me under some guys are of suspicion. And I think that they're playing off a couple of descriptions of how they want people to see me as a black man in this race, but they're going to fail at that. When we contrast how I have dealt with this situation. Compared to Rhonda Santa's who has at every turn tried to stand in the way of the work of the FBI to protect Donald Trump going so far even as to suggest that there is something some deep state at work to try to undermine this presidency. How I have dealt with him. As to say, listen, we want you to be wildly effective at doing your job and to weed out wrongdoing where you see it. I don't feel for myself at all we've been open and transparent at every step of the way. And if they want to make this about ethics and values and morals and who's done wrong versus who Dun Dun rite. I will not submit myself to lessons in ethics from a man who stands by side in lectures, the rest of this country, while he stands behind a Donald Trump who am I thinking is one of the most undeserving people have the president said presidency that we know Andrew gillum mayor of Tallahassee and the democratic nominee for governor of Florida. Thank you very much for being on America on the line. Thank you so much Jonathan for having me, and we should.

I mean, I was literally sued drug through court for two years by the NRA and the gun lobby all because at my city we refuse to repeal an ordinance which said you couldn't shoot guns and city parks. I mean how, how ridiculous is that notion? We got a return to some sense of of common decency and safety and security for all people. And right now the NRA has has run roughshod over this state and we gotta bring it back to a more common indecent place mayor, Andrew, gillum. Thank you very much for joining us. Once again, please come back and join us during the. I would like to hear more and thanks for having me Lawrence take care. Thank you coming up. What does Andrew gillum victory mean for Democrats in Florida and Democrats throughout your country, and why are voters supporting Andrew gillum? We will hear directly from some of those Florida voters and later Paul Manafort really doesn't want to go to trial in Washington DC. He wants to move the trial to a location that is dominated by Trump voters. So the jury box can be filled with Trump voters. We are sixty nine days away from the showdown between congressional Democrats and Republicans in the midterm elections. And that means we are also sixty nine days away from what is now the historic governor's race in the important swing state of Florida where Bernie Sanders endorsed democratic candidate mayor, Andrew gillum, who we just heard from the first African American major party nominee for Florida governor is running against the Trump endorsed Republican and Trump sounding Ron Disentis. There was little surprise that the Donald Trump endorsed Republican won the nomination in a state that Donald Trump won. But President Barack Obama also won the state of Florida twice. So can Andrew gillum inspire the voter turnout that delivered the to Obama wins in Florida. Here is why some Florida voters turned out for Andrew gillum yesterday. He seems to be caring about the people instead of himself in the money that they're putting in. He was backed by Bernie Sanders. I'm really big, Bernie Sanders supporter everything against what Trump is doing with the immigrants and the poor people separated their families. I think this is Astros I voted for people who are a little more moderate in the past, but now I think we need to go progressive and get rid of some of these old ideas..

"Seven, seven. Eight fifty eighty five eighty, five and the conversation I had with John with assault rifles. Again there's a big difference between an assault style rifle an assault rifle which are two. Totally different things the media finally caught on and they ended. The word style because it looks like a mean got it looks like something that somebody would carry on the battle food field but fifteen dot, it just looks like one Chuck in stored how are you today. Hey rich getting back to the cruise, getting all these. Other folks are using the flip Wilson percents now not many people know, that but you will The flip Wilson defense the devil make. Me do it okay? I, remember. Him saying that a lot, so that's what the role using the flip Wilson defense just. Want to pass that onto you, crazy isn't it Yeah the devil made. Me do it which is why, I don't believe you know the acting out that we see on that video I just think it's. You know another that's. The. Metrics okay thank you I appreciate Chuck. Very much you know when you watch it it almost reminds me of of law and order. Episode, because it's I mean it's. So similar to one particular episode where the guy, is in the boxes they call it, and he's, hitting himself in the, face and he's he's saying wish I would die I wish it would, kill me and it's all you know until psychiatrist actually beat. With. Him and debunked this stuff there's, a lot of people to believe it I can't believe that there's people that are actually and. I'm not talking about, his defense, public. Defender their jobs. Defend, him but. I can't believe there's other. People not, only here in south, Florida but around the country that are defending this piece of crap How can you possibly do that how can you possibly Say anything, positive about nNcholas cruise I don't understand. But then again I don't. Understand some other mass shootings we've, had like that church I forgot what, city was in and that's a shame, that I forgot but also in? The church in Texas And the, sandy hook shooting just to name a. Few there's at least one. Person in each one of those, that have something in common you know, what it is they forgave the shooter The most prevalent and I remember is the sandy hook shooting because I think sandy hook shooting was the first shoot and even. Though we've there's been a lot of shootings but that was the, first one in this rash of shootings that have taken it, to another level because kids little, kids were shot and killed one of the parents stood up in a. Courtroom asked to speak and she said she looked at the the killer and said. I just want you to, know I forgive you I remember watching that I couldn't understand that and I'll, probably never will understand it but, it just wow And. The unfortunate part with this whole situation as I thank you and I both go. The dishes dot over it's certainly not gonna end because there's so many things that. We're not prepared for There's a new study came out. Today says many schools in the United States are not even fully prepared for disasters The CDC found less than two thirds. Of school districts have plans in place to handle an influenza outbreak or pandemic or another type of infectious disease outbreak they sing overall roughly four. And a five school districts have plans for helping students and staff with special needs during any kind of emergency situation. Nearly three and four school. Districts have reunification procedures to reconnect students with their families when they're separated during, an emergency we saw that with MSG so how safe our. Schools in south Florida since this happened on, February fourteenth and the clear answer is the truthful answer is not much Because they're protecting Marjory stoneman Douglas high school Or what they call. Protection it's been six months since the, shooting the schools are opening on the. Fifteenth which was just about a week away Palm, Beach opens Monday Broward opens on the fifteenth and nothing has really been put, into place except for a few miners, ex like one entrance But here's the thing who's, going to be at that. One inference I haven't heard that yet if you're gonna have a volunteer if you're. Going to have a teacher's aid or whatever it is that person is not armed that's a tremendous problem and. The other hand if there's one entrance. And you have to say this is, the funniest thing one of the things. I read last night is that everybody that's in, the school that's not a student has to wear a badge to identify themselves, as a visitor You go into. Any hospital here in south Florida they do the same thing you you go in. You check in with security they give you a thing to where nobody checks it So what's the point of wearing these badges if nobody. Checks it now I will tell you that vocal regional hospital does something very good and very different than these, other hospitals and their daily visitor pass pass passers change color every day. So somebody could see you from down the hallway and if you're wearing. A green pass and it's. Red day they know, you don't belong there or, you didn't have the right past so that's a flag Schools Purdue that and that would, be more of a deterrent to some people but there's always going to. Be the person that NNcholas cruise it's not gonna matter if, there's one entrance one inference in one entrance out how could, it be one in one inch out if there's several different, buildings I'm talking about Marjory stoneman Douglas in particular I think that. The Palm Beach county school district saw, what happened, in Broward County and then fortified their schools in Palm Beach county better than, Broward County schools and yet Robert Runcie the superintendent says well we'll we're prepared, everything there's all kinds of changes in place You can't let you don't have to lock the doors from the outside their. Automatically lock well here's a problem what, if, a shoot against him. And gets into a classroom doors locked I mean this is just mind blowing that we were not starting school with any. Kind of metal detectors? Were not starting school with any kind of hand Wanding we're not starting school with any. Kind of clear backpacks and to me, those are the most important things what do you think eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five eighty five eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five. And if you have kids in school I'd love to talk to you to know how. You, feel as a. Parent sending your kids back to school for the new fall summit, semester Because if? I were a parent I'm still be very uncomfortable I would still be very unsure because. It just doesn't make sense that after, such a tragic situation we did not make major drastic changes to prevent something like this from ever happening again but then on the other hand This is my right brain talking to my, left brain is is you're anything that we can actually do security wise to prevent something. Like this from ever happening again And the unfortunate answer is is I don't think so I think if somebody wants to get in with a gun, with a high power weapon or whatever the situation is they. Will somehow, get, in because a lot of these weapons I mean again you take a Glock with a fifteen fifteen, shot magazine that that can do a. Lot of damage especially if you know what you're doing The same way these rifles like a are can fold up. If you, wanna, be really crazy you can put them down your pants and walk in and nobody's gonna know you, have it because you can't see it I think about that for a minute These are the things that a talk show host shouldn't be thinking about law. Enforcement should be thinking about this crap Eight seven seven eight. Fifty eighty five eighty five bark and Pompilio how are you today Trade-off, thank you so. What do you think New theory.
