"Vehicle. But nothing inside the vehicle. Nothing like they'd want to see. I think all of it was kind of circumstantial. There was There's a couple other things going on here. But basically I think the death nail was, um you know, there was an informant Prison informant, a jailhouse informant who said Mr Taylor had kind of admitted to to that he was guilty to him. So that was one of the big witnesses and you always have to take. Take that with a grain of salt any Prison based informant that is, is talking for the purpose. Whatever purpose it may be, You know, that's Like you said. It may have been one of the large factors here, but it's always difficult to say that that's sufficient to to put someone away for essentially forever, you know. So Taylor Taylor was convicted and there's much more to the story than that. But we have our time restraints here. So Taylor was convicted. Evidence against him was certainly There were things there that were disconcerting. There was no there's no smoking gun. You know, it was. It's a little more than circumstantial. But there was there was enough for a jury to decide He was guilty. And, uh, and convict him and then for a long time. That was it. Yeah. So convicted actually in 1993. And you know, Taylor exhausted every avenue of appeal that he had when finally the commission reviewed his case and decided in September that it merited review before the special panel. So he ends up getting that case reviewed and you know we runs it through. We run it through everything we've talked about as far as the standards for what the commission's really looking for. And ultimately, it's found by that clear and convincing evidence standard that he is actually innocent of the crime for which he was charged. And that Taylor ruling. It marks the first time in the state's history in which prisoner was exonerated because of the involvement of the Innocence Commission. So the commission did you know there was there was an investigation and there was a cigarette butt that had been recovered from the scene. And so there was a DNA test and matched, uh, someone who was currently serving a prison term for similar crime. Whose name whose name was also Taylor. I believe I think it was a very similar crime. And I think it actually happened in close time. Proximity to win this crime took place as well. And then And then there was some. There was some evidence of that. That new person maybe. Maybe confessed to it came real close to confessing. Although there was never any new charges brought, But the d you know that that DNA evidence was kind of some of the new evidence that helped it was found that maybe One of the investigators wasn't very forthcoming with the test about whether there had been blood under the under the vehicle. So you had your new evidence. You had your claim of of innocence and then The three judge panel heard 15 witnesses, including Mr Taylor again, No one pled the fifth. Mr Taylor took the stand and And anyway, there was a lot of exhibits a lot of a lot of evidence, and this was the first time Where they were able to completely exonerate anyone. And, uh, as as there often is, once the criminal has charges have been dealt with. There was a civil case. I believe he was awarded four or $5 million from the state for being wrongfully. Convicted and I just remember this being in the news a lot. And you heard. I think Mr Taylor gave some interviews and then, uh, You know what one of the sad things here, so the commission worked. In theory, you know, there's a lot of people that think maybe Mr Taylor is not not innocent. So you know, I know the family of Miss Thomas. I saw some interviews and some news stories where they're like, Well, what's gonna what's going to happen now? The guy we thought So we thought we had justice and now he's free. The other inmate never really got charged. No one ever really followed up on it. So the death of Ms Thomas is still cold case by all accounts, And so I know the The Miss Thomas's family does not feel like justice. Maybe maybe has been served. And I think a lot of people who go look back at the evidence. Maybe aren't 100% convinced. Mr Taylor was innocent. Yeah, and again, it's difficult. It all comes back to the balance between that individual liberty and the system and we had Like you said, a number of witnesses a ton of evidence. And, you know, three elected members of the judiciary that we're reviewing this and, uh and that's the conclusion that they came to All right. Well, that was the first big success story they have been. Innocence Commission has been in the news a lot recently over the past year two they had another big, big success story. In the case of alcohol, it McCollum And Brown two step brothers who were wrongfully as it turns out, convicted of of murder, So we will talk about that one next but again if you have any questions or concerns for the show, 1 806 59. 11 86 or email us at questions at the outlaw lawyer dot com.

End to end from the shipper all the way to the recipient. We're making some very good progress here but are we moving fast enough. I'm afraid of. I'm afraid of that that we're not moving fast enough. Some nice honesty from carol to me you can see our full interview with her. And all of our big interviews from cnbc's evolve global summit on demand had to cnbc events dot com slash evolve but let's trade ups. Steve what do you make of the shippers. We're talking about supply chain crunches. I know that's sort of in a different level. But if you wanna play delivery do you wanna play a ups. Do you want to play a fedex. Play amazon's so. Ups is up nineteen percent year to date. Fedex has lagged ups up thirty percent year today. she is right. You don't know there are plenty of competition you don't know where the competition is coming from. I own w. r. k. Which is west rockets paper container. Accompany so either way you go. Whoever wins there's more packages we could all agree upon that. So i'm playing it from a different way because i don't know how this is shake out nor does she. So how would i know and became. You brought us through rare earth trade. When i asked you if you wanna play electric vehicles so do you have sort of a back. Doorway to trade delivery and transports here to know. I mean these are tough. I think probably what you wanna do is actually. I agree with stephen you stay away from fedex and you stay away from ups because that area is in the middle of flocks. But i think you take a look at the railroads as you see more domestic type of type deliveries happening more domestic production happening. The railroads are probably the place to be because there really isn't any competitions not going to build another railroad anytime soon so that is how i would play kind of the re shoring effect of the supply chain. Ms thomas talked about seeing around the corner. I don't know if footage of guy dommie working for ups. But i think there's some reasons why he's no longer with the firm and now ups. Has i think done an amazing job of showing capacity disciplined pricing power. And i think. I don't think we're late cycle if you were late cycle. I think he'd be staying away from the transports. If you look at the it's actually dip below the fifty. I think this is an opportunity to pick this up and again those one numbers the stock spiked. It's giving some back. I think you take a look guy. I can't let you go. You gotta go on this. One brown isn't my color either. That's him. Tim is right. I did work at ups for a day. And i'm the only employees in the history of the firm to get employee of the month. Having been there one day. Something extraordinarily proud of number one number. Two i would. Actually i think you could buy fedex here you know you throw a twenty multiple on the eighteen dollars earned. You're talking about a stock trading. Three sixty i think they report on june twenty fourth are. We're going to pay attention to that. And twenty four th coming up. We're checking in on the travel trade.

"Not lazy be so bad I'm sorry because everything in me wanted to tell you in that game please leave me alone please ms Thomas continued the video for almost eleven minutes in which she described the incident and you can hear the audio you can hear the trembling in her voice this sounds horrible this sounds visceral this sounds like an A. it well exactly what she's describing which is a racist attack and completely unacceptable in twenty nineteen video comes out yes it's a little thing called corroborating evidence which seems to be in this case sorely lacking because in the surveillance video which lasts a little under a minute you can see this individual I what what what was his name Eric Eric sparks yeah who approaches miss Thomas in the checkout lane and appears to point to assign you know being the the ten items or less express lane sign and then she addresses him she moves towards him and is responding to a we don't hear any of the audio from this because there there is no audio from the surveillance tapes but she's pointing her finger and she follows him as he leaves out of the store after making this confrontation in fact what what what's more so okay what she's claiming is that this individual told her to go back to her country go back to her what are you came from and none of the public's employees who were present corroborated her version of events and if you saw the surveillance video it is immediately noticeable that many of these employees are themselves African American which in my mind would seem to disinclined them from contradicting miss Thomases version of events if in fact they were authentic yeah I what when I watched the video there was dated some interviews after that surveillance video of mostly public employees and there was a really shocking moment that was very unexpected because the reporter asked the employee did he say go back to where you came from and the the employee goes no he didn't say that she said that right and it gets better because this individual not only didn't do any of the things he's accused of blood is himself a descendant of Cubans he's a cute American that's his heritage that's his background and he's a registered Democrat voter with Democrat bona fides this guy is a dues paying member of the Democratic Party and certainly Democratic Party voter he might even be one of her voters yeah and the of what his response was that he's going to be a Democrat voter for the rest of his life but what he didn't appreciate was being the target of her partisan political game in order to make yourself look good he I mean he's the victim here and that's that's what's not the police as a matter of fact after having investigated thing says that they're not going forward with pressing charges but in this case I disagree I completely disagree I think police should move forward with pressing charges because what miss Thomas here is doing is in and of itself racist yes she's accusing a Cuban of first of all being white and then making these racial slurs he would theoretically be guilty of a hate crime would he not is any of this was true so my supposition is why shouldn't she be guilty of a hate crime for making this false accusation that can be absolutely proven to be untrue can you imagine the national media attention that would swarm down on to that city it's a suburb of Atlanta that would swarm down to that suburb if the police actually did filed charges against representative Thomas yeah but I mean but they're not going to in this case because it would be a media Bakul but I find it completely ridiculous that this kind of blatant dishonesty is allowed to go on and will most likely be swept under the rug at first the national news media was rabbit rabbit salivating chomping at the bit to to to to use this story as an opportunity to prove just days after trump's racist tweet that this is the character of America and these are the you know the kind of races the tracks attacks that that this white supremacist president inspires within the fruited plains but it's just not true it's a narrative that doesn't stand up and miss Thomas here is contributing to a a blatant pattern of dishonesty that's not productive no it's not exactly it's not productive and even worse it's destructive nobody is going to benefit from this not black people not white people not men not women not Cubans not Asians nobody is going to benefit from the culture that we're creating where everything is racist well not only where everything is racist even things that aren't racist racist were racist accusations have to be made up and this isn't the first time that we've covered this on the show or even in recent times with jussie Smollett very famously manufacturing a racist attack and accusing that you know are trying this into the atmosphere created by Donald Trump and it just wasn't borne out by evidence there are racists in America get that clear there are people with hate in their heart there are backwards individuals knuckle dragger is with which we want no part but it's not productive to manufacture strongmen instead of just pointing to the actual problem now is just going to put people more people on the defensive it's like it puts everybody on the defensive the when everybody's on the defensive nobody's gonna make a move to try to make any sort of progress at dept beneficial for people yeah and that's the real shame of this particular incident is the progress that is lost is the discussion that's lost in dishonesty on the part of miss Erika Thomas and although you know sure she's not going to be facing hate crimes charges or anything like that criminal charges of any kind she should feel ashamed of herself and if anything her constituents in her district need to be asking themselves if this is the kind of character that they want a state lawmaker to have because I don't think that this reflects the the values of Georgia voters or hopefully any voters within America right exactly I mean one thing you know to remember she is Mike nine months pregnant I mean she's basically giving birth so you know she is right that that is hard to stand on I don't blame her for that and so you know going through the line with fifteen items in the ten item check out that's not you know some sort of agree just send so by take take it to the level that she did was very very different yeah I've been pregnant might buy an extra five items in the town I item check out but it doesn't give you carte Blanche immunity to spin a way of lies and to impugn the character of an innocent man you're listening to Saturday night on the circle we have lots more to cover including Donald Trump trolling the lives once again and offering you plastic straws in

Yes, they were at a hotel in the Dominican Republic. Oh, okay. Dana flowers, a member of the central oklaho- homeland Oklahoma Perritt head association. You know, the COPA told people magazine that everyone who became sick either swam in one specific pool or drank at the swim up bar when they sought medical treatment the resorts onsite doctor prescribed a medicine for parasites. They didn't do any testing but they automatically gave the medicine for parasites. They said upon returning home from the trip to other members tested, positive for salmonella flowers. Herself claims to have lost fourteen pounds due to the illness. She says many fellow parrot heads still aren't feeling normal months after the trip. Oh, maybe I need to go to the Dominican Republic, the fourteen pounds. Good. I. Yeah. Well, it'd be a great great thing to do.

Despite the fact, she had broken up with a months ago and demanded no contact Baker figured that now vulnerable women just entering Landis is life would quickly find her. If you found my page via max Landis. Hi, I'm going to give you some direct info.

Pretty close to I would say criminal behaviour with them. And four women are suing the Indiana. Attorney general Curtis hill for sexual harassment. They all rampant everywhere. They all accuse him of groping them at a party last year. They filed a federal lawsuit against him on Tuesday, alleging sexual harassment retaliation, gender discrimination, and defamation among other claims the four plaintiffs wall worked for the state of Indiana, I went public with their allegations last summer state, Representative Mara Candelaria, Mark handle area, Reardon and state house employees Gabrielle macklemore.

"More fundamental philosophy that looks at law abiding citizens as the first line of defense against crime short. And I certainly agree with that. I'm like, I said in my testimony. I don't really want to get into the details of what happened. But I it was him versus I, and it was a battle of strength. And obviously I lost. So yes, I mean, we police are are great. And I very much respect what they do. But you know, sometimes seconds count. Thank you. The chair recognizes the gentlewoman from California. Thank you Madam chair. And I just want to follow up a word on my colleague over there. Mr. McClintock neighborhood watch. I do think provides a real opportunity for community members to get involved. But Ed Davis never believed in army the neighborhood watch. I just wanted to have a couple of questions were misled acre California Democrat Karen bass, I want to address what I believe is a common stereotype of inner city communities in particular African American communities because it's often been said that the only time the community response is when he police officer kills an African American and that when there is crime that takes place in our communities that we don't do anything. And I know that you're one of those soldiers on the front line. I want to thank you for being here today. I know that you also supposed to be in Canada. My good colleague Representative, Robin. Kelly told me about your work, and I. Really wanted to ask you if you could talk about the work that you've done what role can community based organizations play in preventing crime. And comforting those who have suffered from the impact. And then also what resources do you need from us one. I've worked in communities for many years, and I often know that is never considered newsworthy. When we're doing marches talking about crime and trying to address the situation. But anyway, I like for you to respond to what you're doing in the community, and what we can do as members of congress to help you first of all thank you so much for knowledge moment as a bit here. I listened to the back and forth about gun violence, and and to me, it leaves out the most important part, and that's those who have to deal with it on a daily basis or a mom in my community who has lost two sons in one week because of gun violence. And it seems like it's always talked around about the people who are living there. Now, you can imagine a block with ten houses on it and six of those houses have lost kids to violence. So that there is no black anymore. There isn't any community anymore because all those families are hurting. And then one on the black steps up and says, I need to do something, and I want to help and nobody wants to help because of the color of this scandal where they come from where they live at while the conditions, and you know, you're fighting a losing battle. And I'm speaking of myself personally here right now, you're fighting a losing battle not only to give hope to the people you trying to help. But to the community that you live in because they believe that the violence is more prevalent than the Hopi organizations have funding. No, ma'am. No, ma'am. Teen years. Yes. Now, we had seven dental gave volunteered. Not that. We wouldn't want the allergies. But we needed. But well, how were you able to do that work with just Mylan tears, because the very generous people donors people who believe in what we do have supported us all these years and foundations have helped us, but we have never had a grant writer or anything like that. And it doesn't come from that. I just want people to know before Matanza doesn't come from that it comes from a sense of. I'm more afraid not to do anything that. I am to do something. Right. But I do think if communities had the resources. Uh-huh. Are irresponsible and don't want to do anything. I thank you very much. Thank you very much for being here today. Ms Thomas, I wanted to ask if you could very briefly because I need to yield some of my time to my colleague here, Mr Deutsch. In a community like Chicago that has strong gun boss. It's the problem is the surrounding area state of California strong gun laws, but we have out states that guns come in from could you very briefly respond to what the federal government could do to help. And then I'm going to yield my time to Mr Deutsch one of the things that the federal government can do with me to properly fund ATF. So they could do their jobs better trace that trafficking of guns that happens across state lines. And to pass a trafficking Bill. We don't currently have federal Bill which dresses, the problem of gun traffic. Thank you think we need one. Thank you very much. A yield two Representative Deutsche from from California. I just wanted to set the record straight on on one discussion we've gone back and forth. There's been a lot of talk about Justice Scalia, and the Heller case and Blackstone, and it's just important actually as we have these discussions to be honest about what we're trying to do. And the fact is that every single proposal been made on the gun safety area is. Entirely constitutional. Don't take it for me, take it from Justice Scalia who said, and I quote, like most rights the rights secured by the second amendment is not unlimited from Blackstone through the nineteenth century cases commentators in courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever. And for whatever purpose, that's the language. We need to bear in mind as we have this debate. We cannot be fooled by those who suggest that what we're trying to do is is unconstitutional. What we're trying to do is constitutional. It is just and it will save lives. Thank you. The gentleman's time is expired. I asked for the committee's unanimous consent that the following items bad into the hearing record whenever letter from prosecutors against gun violence co-chaired by Michael Faraday. The Los Angeles city attorney and Cyrus Vance junior Manhattan District Attorney in support of bipartisan background checks act of twenty nine thousand nine we have letters from Massachusetts seventh congressional district elected officials, including Boston mayor, Martin j Walsh.

"Make sure I don't have anything to hurt myself or my family and give those guns to my neighbor. It actually would criminalize it is not listed exceptions. And I know there's a lot of it. But if you read the Bill is not there. So again, I think what we gotta do is look at what is honestly being discussed your most which chief estimator chiefs. Good to see you again. We had a great common Houston. Doing something. Now, you brought that up and I think it's an issue. You know, my father-in-law advisement and doing something now is is a commendable thing if it actually works. How can you explain what we just going off his last conversation? Can you explain how HRA can operate without a firearms registry? And do you see implementation problems in this? I think that the recommendations that the HR eight hasn't there the legislation will not solve will not eliminate gun violence. Certainly, I don't think anyone on this panel would say that wouldn't prevent at least one death. And the question I would have is passing. If that one death was your child, your mother, your father is a little inconvenience too much to save that life Houston police chief art Escobedo dancers. No, there's nothing I can say this wanna change your mind on HR eight. But I believe that the legislation will save at least one life. And if it's my child who dies I want him to know. And I want to know that I was today speaking on that life. And I think the interesting thing is how many again in a while that you pass did you give people comfort and saying that would actually pass can simply say the transfer was made before this without a registry. And I think this is an interesting thing actually export here. We're gonna explore this more when? I'm sure it is Marta. I'm not questioning by any means the decision or the desire to find a solution to this. This is it I was in Minnesota. Iraq had the trauma surgeon and we've talked about this extension. This is not an issue. But, but let's also look at this holistically because every time we wanna go to fix this. We go to the population that is the legal gun owners buying or selling illegal format. We go to be Opie the bureau prisons when they put up your most criminals, do not get there as you. Well know do not get their guns from legal sources. They don't the question is interesting curious because this has come up a little bit. My time is running out an interesting discussion here is what would be the penalty for robbing a federally licensed firearm or biller, what should it be? And how should it be enforced because that's becoming more and more of an issue. Gentleman's fired me answer the question. I believe that this has to approach we need to take folks that would commit gun violence steal firearms. We need to have a zero tolerance and a real tough approach. That's the other thing that when you look at as to have these gun dealers actually have to secure lock their firearms every night. Number one target. Of gang members and other criminals is pawn shops in places in gun shops, where they come in burglarize was places where I think there's a way to do it. And I think the the other thing when you have congress actually authorized and fun studying a comprehensive study on this matter once and for all and let the experts come up with the policy decisions on an evidence based which is really interesting because you're from. George Mason University. And I'm actually in the evidence base. The hall of fame there. So I really believe that we need we need a funded. And lastly, we need to get some help very great partner, but they truly are because of lack of funding and support of the congress operate with one hand behind her back to the one are their backs when you to give them both harm still. Thank you. The time gentlemen has expired MS Lofgren, thank you, Mr.. Chairman. I am so pleased that we're having this hearing today. We've experienced an epidemic of gun violence in his country deaths for mass shootings suicides in four years. We have failed to have any attention any hearings any legislation to deal with this epidemic in this tragedy. So I am pleased that we now have the opportunity to begin work, California Democratic congressman Zoe Lofgren public health crisis. Now, it's our turn to set the agenda and to listen to the American people. So I appreciate all of the witnesses were here in especially the young people were in the audience who have spoken up across the country with passion and eloquence, and it's your energy that has helped us be here today. I do have a question. Ms Thomas about a study that was done by everytown for gun safety. They reviewed a an online firearms marketplace. And according to their report, they found that almost one in nine perspective gun buyers from this website would not have passed a background check. They gave one example of a customer in Georgia who was looking to buy a handgun immediately. He said within twenty four hours and a public records request Jodi had multiple felony convictions, including one for child molestation. He was currently under indictment. This was someone who shouldn't have a gun. He wouldn't have passed a background check. And yet he was able to obtain it through this unlicensed seller on the internet, and that apparently is happening your rates seven to one. But the users this website. People know they can avoid the background check. What can be done can make sure that people online and looking for guns are not able to avoid a background check. That's exactly why we need to pass HR eight because the reference to private sales doesn't acknowledge.

"And other lawful per. Purposes and also for transfers within immediate family members. Grandparents parents wouldn't be subject to this excuse me would not be subject to this requirement immediate family. Exactly, there's an exception for immediate family members being the on again, MS Thomas, the only federal agency with jurisdiction to regulate. The gut industry has had his hands tied for decades through a combination of restrictive policy, writers and shrink budget. Can you talk about the challenges facing the ATF and his efforts to effectively regulate the gun industry, and what congress needs to do to ensure a better regulatory oversight of this agency. I think there's two main issues that you're referring to one is funding question and the size of ATF ATF's the entirety of ATF is the size of the Las Vegas police department. So it's a rather small group of people looking to. To look after fifty five thousand gun dealers across the United States. Approximately eight percent of those gun dealers were able to be even inspected last year based on the number of agents that ATF has better funding as an absolute necessity for federal law enforcement to be able to properly do their job. Secondarily, I think you're referring to the restrictions which is a t- heart restrictions, which aren't appropriations rider which prevent ATF from aggregating trace data and using that information to properly do their job to find the source of gun trafficking. They are also prevented for modernizing their records, which is helpful to also doing their job properly as law enforcement as well as encouraging are forcing gun dealers to keep better track of their inventory. So they can better understand the source of reasons deal. Those restrictions absolutely. Thank you very much. My time has expired. Recognize the ranking Member Mr Collins, five minutes.

You're also locked to recruit our renewal registrations annually, including some meeting. Go back on track is this correct?

"Individuals this Bill would expand the appropriate. Use of this system ensuring that laws prohibiting these people from possessing guns are properly enforced, but while closing the loop holes in our federal background. Check system is a critical. First step. We must also do more to cover people at a high risk from committing violence who are not currently prohibited from purchasing guns. This includes abuse of dating partners stalkers and people convicted of hate crimes. We should also ensure families and law enforcement have the tools they need to intervene. When someone demonstrates signs of a serious crisis called extreme risk protection. Order laws these laws create a legal process to temporarily remove firearms. If a court finds someone poses a real risk. These laws now exist in some form thirteen states and save lives while ensuring due process, we must invest in our collective future. Congress should better regulate the gun industry and enact at gun trafficking law. It should also address gun violence in communities where it's costs are felt most acutely in urban areas where young African American and the Tino men are most impacted well-funded violence intervention and prevention programs can successfully break cycles of violence and level the playing field for safety and our communities. Congress should also invest financially into research in this public health and safety crisis federal research into gun violence has been virtually nonexistent for twenty years. This must be addressed. So we can learn more about this problem and how to effectively solve it. There is no constitutional impediment to passing lifesaving gun laws since the founding of our country gun rights have always existed with gun regulations and the need to protect public safety has always gone hand in hand with Americans right to own guns. The only thing standing in the way of saving lives is a lack of political will all we need to strengthen our federal gun laws is a congress with the courage to do. So I urge this congress to find that courage to show leadership on this life and death issue and to act now, Mr Chairman members of the committee. Thank you for inviting us here. To testify today. And I look forward to answering your questions. All the witnesses for their testimony. We will now proceed under the five minute rule with questions will begin by recognizing myself for five minutes. But first question is. Dr saccharin. We have heard today we hear repeatedly during this extended debate real problem or one real problem is mental health that we to deal better with mental health. I'm sure known objects dealing better with mental health problems. My question is the following. As I noted in my opening statement gun destined. Most other countries are in this double a single digits double or triple digits to three hundred hundred one hundred in our country. It's thirty five to forty thousand a year. Is there any evidence number one? The mental health differences that I people at ten thousand times more mentally ill on average than people in other industrialized countries that this provides an explanation. Dealing with mental health alone will go any this is what solving this problem. Thank you, Mr Chairman for that question. The disparity that exists between our country and other comparable countries is dramatic as you suggest and even when folks factor in the rate of mental health disease and other issues we still exceed all those other countries by significant proportion trauma surgeon, Dr Joseph saccharin, it's not that were completely dissimilar. One of the question of firearms emergency protective orders, empower family and law enforcement recognized signs of danger to petition for a court order to temporarily remove a person's access to guns if they're likely to use the yourselves or others briefly, please what can congress do to ensure that every American actress when extremists protection order inappropriate circumstances? When someone they love is experiencing such a crisis. Yeah. This is such an important issue. Because when you look at the majority of deaths from firearms, those come from suicide two-thirds, and the reality is is when you look at the time that it takes from when the person decides to commit suicide till they action make that first attempt. Fifty percent happened within the first ten minutes. And so being able to have what can congress do? Able extreme risk protection orders where you can empower family members, and you can our law enforcement temporarily actually sees weapons so that they're not a harm to themselves or others. I think is critical. Thank you. Ms Thomas, the NRA and others have argued that enacting universal background checks with penalize law abiding gun owners and prevent such transfers as a father giving a gun to his son, the plain language of HR eight the bipartisan background checks actors is narrowly written a clearly allows for this kind of transfer. Can you walk us briefly through HR eight and how it explicitly protects these kinds of transfers? So basically, what HR does is it takes our existing law, which prohibits this variety of individuals that we deem to.
