A both these gentlemen, had regular reoccurring responsibility. With the Johnson, and I'll have dean BAC one day. Everybody you going on again. Yes. I'll have dean on again. I've got a lot of responsibility making you the BC hardy happy now. I know let me have you give it right now. What is your Email address, Terry? Well, I'm I work at Middlesex community college. I run two programs their program on homeland security and also program the supplies mediation services to courts in civil cases. My Email address. There is downs. Like. Up and down DO W E S T for Terry at Middlesex dot M. A S S dot E D U for education what campus because there are three major campuses for Middlesex. Yeah. This is campus in downtown Lowell and a beautiful suburban campus in Bedford right off route three. So so that's what we operate. They're both. It's one college operating on two campuses, the campuses work seamlessly with each other. And we've got a lot of programs going on both degree and non degree granting programs. It's it's a great place to be very active in vibrant place. I love being there. I don't know. If whatever's in charge of student activities would no, but I did right, right. Trivia, stick at both campuses. And they used to be a third campus. Yes, I worked doing trivia at all three campuses. Maybe going back to the early mid two thousand two thousand three four five six. Yep. And. Crow speak to that person in student activities. And see if they remember me, I will I will do that. It'd be great to have you come back up. Okay. Maybe we can work that out if that works for you. You've got my phone number. So yes, they do. And I'll talk to those affected those folks next week and and put that up for out there. And and see if they would like to have a discussion with you. I think that'd be a great thing to me. No student activity. Yeah. I'll certainly talk to them. I appreciate that. Give people your background. How you went from a freshman in high school to where you are now. Well, I grew up in Cambridge and went to BC high from PC high went to Harvard while the Harvard, I got interested in the criminal Justice system. I did a lot of studying of it. I did work with as an exemplary police officer and the researcher or at the Cambridge police department and then worked my way through Suffolk law squall as a stocking on the MIT police and followed that by time in the Middlesex district attorney's office, and then went to work for the court system. So I've been involved in the criminal Justice system and public safety in one way or another since the early nineteen seventies. When. They left the court system. I did some work with a think tank down in DC that it some homeland security work for the federal government, even before the web homeland security was formerly in existence and eventually ended up working at Middlesex community, college setting up a a homeland security program that works with public safety, agencies and other government entities to help. Bring information about homeland security and emergency management to I respond to regencies at the state and local level. So so that's that's how how I got to worry and one change in highschool and your career could have garden entirely different direction. Oh, yeah. Yep. There a threshold there a threshold dates there a threshold events. I remember particularly in college. I I was in. A course that was a just not what I was hoping that it would be it was frankly, it was a hard thing. Foreign course, and I did something I never did. Which was I left a lecture early and watch into Harvard square. And I saw people walking up to there was a cop on the corner. And there was a steady stream of people walking up to them. And obviously they were asking questions looking for direction who knows what they were asking them. But I it just occurred to me there's somebody who's having a real impact on people's lives all day every day. And I started getting very interested in what police did in reality twenty four seven, and that was the that was the one single of event the really got me interested in what are these people do for a living? What's the impact they have on the community? What's their interaction? Like, what are the challenges that they face? And and it's been a very interesting career ever since I hand on the tenant Bruce apothecary. I have him on three or four times a year. And if you do I hear him with you, he's great. He's fantastic. And he was just two or three weeks ago. And it was a new story. And I put it to him to get his reaction. And I'm going to ask you because with homeland security. This is something that could fall under your observation. MS thirteen the Latin gang. World Y tentacles. They are everywhere around the world. Right. And this was a new story. Beck in late February early March that they're now going to start to. Because you mentioned police, and that's what made me think of this. They went to try and intimidate New York City police because that's with a stern got into germ of start by attacking off duty police officers and attack. Off duty police officers had you heard about this. Yes. I did hear about that. And it's a very disturbing story. Yes. They they they do say they want to find out where they live. They wanna find out who their family who their relatives are. And and they want to start intimidating them in that way. Now, I'm not aware of any circumstances. As yet, the you know of any particular situations where that's already occurred. Yes. But they has been intelligence from as they as they say usually reliable sources that would indicate that danger. And of course, they would like to start the place like New York City because if they can get a reputation of causing problems to them than they MS thirteen with. Think that that was a good thing. Of course, what they don't count on is the reaction of every police officer Lauren forcement agency in the country reacting in in a very determined manner to that kind of information, that's the kind of thing I think that would badly backfire on MS thirteen they could cause individuals trouble. No question about that. But they think that that the average police officer or police department is going to be intimidated by that buckle under to that. They clearly don't. Yeah. They clearly don't understand American cops. If that's what they think. So the key is. Talk all you want. But if you take one step towards what you're saying. You'll be sorry. You made that choice now. All right. It's it's our holder. I've got a break to take can pick up short when we come back from the breaking in roughly five seconds this very point. But for right now is a nice man from CBS news with news for everybody. By one day after announcing that he's running for president in twenty twenty. He also said a record correspondent, Ed O'Keefe fighting's campaign said it raised six point three million dollars in its first twenty four hours from nearly ninety seven thousand people in all fifty states. That's the new one day record topping fellow democratic contenders bet to overwork and Bernie Sanders side, Nelson gave his first television interview to the ladies of the view on ABC and was grilled about his treatment of Anita hill in nineteen Ninety-one during the Clarence Thomas Thomas hearings. I'm sorry. She was treated the way she was treated co host joy Behar pushed back I think she wants to say I'm sorry for the way. I tweeted you CBS news political analyst, Larry Sabato, what's amazing about this. Is that Joe Biden has had decades to get this problem solved or at least to deliver an apology or to CBS news update. I'm Matt.

"Great show. Plan. Good. Race. Ingham about the plug in my headphones. Because Dan has his own headphones. So there are six pair of headphones in this room. I have to plug in one of them. Oh. Hey, we go, and sir you sit right there. I think that's where being used to put you. All right. And we also direct role is is about to say, we have a great show planned. My first two guests from now to one Michael Donovan and one Kerry downs, and then and to an author who wrote a book about. Mary Tyler Moore, all these things all these things a plan for this evening, and wait to see what they have planned for tomorrow. But right now. Let me welcome Michael Michael you brought a briefcase that you could put two phone books in. I got one for you. The second World War is the book. Now, how long did it take you to write that book my lifetime? So you've been working on it for years and years and years I've been studying we're to since I was twelve I'm sixty four. Okay. And most people some people understand that World War Two was separate entities that evolved into one major conflict. That's right. It was the nine hundred forty one sneak attack at Pearl Harbor, December seventh by the Japanese and then in the European war mainly because of Adolf Hitler. Also, Benito Mussolini that war had a pre history starting in thirty three thirty four across Europe. And it just kept growing and growing and growing which of those pair. Caught your attention. I as far as making focus in the book for the book. It was all pretty even from the start. But as a student, probably the Pacific war was more. Interesting to me, I have to force myself to study the European were natural instinct is the Pacific. Now, you say your grandfather was proud of as is he served press called Maryland. Yes. The greatest generation he was a tear it gun. He was a he was a breech loader, okay? On the sixteen inch guns and they called him pops. Because he was the latte. They had to change the rules. So that after a certain age you couldn't enlist anymore, and he was the last person in Southie that enlisted and so the game a little parade. Yes. So and that's why they call them affectionately. Here's he was like thirty nine right after like a month after he enlisted men envisage couldn't enlist anymore because there wasn't as much of a desperate need now to tell people. Maybe you've heard this gentleman on busy air before dean Johnson used to have Michael arm with great regularity as well. My guess that one o'clock Terry Downes and the callers requested that I get both of you. That's fantastic. So the callers made it by popular that's fantastic. I just thought I would know that. And if any of the call is out there now. One call in and ask questions dealing with World War Two, Michael. And Michael obviously commander almost any question. That's a sensible real question about World War Two. Now, what is the official year beginning World War Two and ending World War, Two hours, America's involvement. Well, obviously, December eighth when Roosevelt declared a state of war would be when it started officially, okay? And on August fifteenth, the Japanese formally surrendered, but the the ceremony itself didn't take place until September second on the UCS, Missouri. When right when MacArthur said these proceedings are closed that would I guess be the official end. Do you have any speculation wide Japan kit going after Germany? I think it was may eighth. Don't quote me on that date, but early may gave in and for another three months Japan kept on going if any insight as to why Willie question would be way, Japan and surrender after the battle of lay take gov because most of the military is story would say. Any nation in that situation for the past years would would surrender at that point would understand it's over it's over. So a lot of it has to do with saving face and a lot of it had to do with the same with Germany believing that they were going to come up with some kind of super weapons that would somehow stretch out the conflict, and then have a negotiated settlement. And there was always the hope that because we talk often about the invasion of the Japanese islands would have cost a million casualties. Yes. That's why we dropped the book heart of that was a hope on the Japanese part that they could reach a stalemate on land, which is not unthinkable. Right. And then negotiate a settlement with they retain their national honor. So that would be the answer. I guess and if I recall my history. The Japanese as well as the Germans were each working on something that would have thrown the war hard indefinite in their favor and the Japanese had a plan to basically use germ warfare. Is they tried it in the west coast states. Yeah. To balloons, and they tried to incendiary balloons thinking that in the hot weather. They might set up massive fires. But it really wouldn't do that much. Good. And the Germans they were working on atomic weaponry themselves. Oh, yes. Definitely. So had we not with godspeed cut me atomic bomb. Ready for August? Six ninth. It was too late for Germany by then. But. That invasion would have been the next plan. People also intitiated a stronger defense by Germany, and they put up when the crust when we crossed the Rhine in March. We weren't expecting the sent me the performance of the German infantry was superior up until the time the Americans crossed the Rhine and at that point it completely collapsed. But the Americans didn't see that coming. They thought this conflict was going to last well into the summer with the Germans, and that's what the atomic bomb was four. It was meant for Berlin. Right. And. Nineteen forty five the Springer forty five. Everything started to go against Germany, the the infantry. Then looked WAFA all of the things that had brought them. Great success. From roughly thirty six thirty seven to early nineteen Forty-five just stopped working as a way of approaching war. Well out of it was morale because the German I'd say the legend of German equipment the Luftwaffe's in the panzers is overrated. What what made them crazily effective was. They were crazy. They were the craziest troops. The maybe a New Zealand is in the I will work could match them. But they were just all military story that just astounded at the fighting qualities of of the German army. I've got to take a break. But when we come back one point we've yet to touch upon the use of drugs by the German war machine. And that would be from Adolf Hitler down to his generals down to is certainly goring had a problem. Yeah. Down to the soldiers. It's big about much, but it's an important point. Well, let's talk about that. We come back anyone who would like to join this conversation know that you're not used to me starting off at something. So politically heavy every now, and then I surprise you don't I six one seven two five four ten thirty. That's the number to get through.

That's plenary in the constitution, the United States. He didn't exercise it in the special counsel report.

But I remember you're much of a Trekkie. And I think dean a little bit to just eat at Morgan. I've we've discussed the new show how it's now captain pike. Yes, I just I don't wanna ruin too much of it. But last week sparked kidnapped a lot of them and took them to tell us for where the original series all began. This whole thing's going, I don't know there's about five more episodes this season. But it's it's obvious. This is all going to loop back around back into that. And and why have a linguistic question, you know, in the in the episode? You know, how the pike went in the original series. He went there twice one healthy and Watson the wheelchair. Yes. This episode last week fits in between them. So we no longer have a sequel. We no longer have a prequel. What do we call? This. Is it an inkwell fits in the middle of night park. Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no. I had. One more one more one more. But you will you will like this. And this is it. No more one Moore's okay episode at the very beginning. A lot of weeks. It says previously on Star Trek, and they show something from the week before last week. They had those original scenes from nineteen sixty two or whatever. Yeah. Previously on track. And I was like, oh, yeah. About what fifty seven years ago? Five not sixty two if you know your trick. I don't, but I'm just saying that ever been done before where they why ESN all EMC you question and you'll have to listen off the air, and I'm gonna put. Live long and prosper. No, no, no. John Michael back on hold. And they did this on deep space nine where the trouble with triples episode. They intermingled the original showing of that David Joe wrote the episode way back in sixty seven or so and deep space nine did that so captain Cisco was on the enterprise back then so have they ever done that before? Yes, Bob, if you really know your track, you would have known that. And now I was being sarcastic. But that's actual and factual from what song that hails Keith. Hello. Keith. How are you? Not too bad. Good. What is going on here? Dean johnson. Are we tiring from WBZ? Or are we taking the world? Perfect radio boys ain't going someplace else. Oh, no.

Yeah, I, you know, it's just those last couple of hours or the like so is I said this in my particular case, this was a meeting of the minds. It's a mutual thing.

"The sports front, San Jose. At a Boston five to four six twenty eight left in the third quarter. The third period rather, the Beezer ahead almost all the game in now, the sharks have caught up with him still six minutes left, but San Jose ahead five to four we'll keep you updated on that as well. I guess it's Terry Downes executive director for homeland security at Middlesex community college. Of course, we're talking about them. What happened Aurora Illinois this week? And I did the big setup before the break, Terry. What do we do what can reasonably done with perhaps a little tweaking here or there because whether people are in favor of it or not what should become a patently obvious, particularly talk about our next subject is nothing major is going to be done. So this is what we're going to have to learn to live with. So as such what do we do to perhaps keep this sort of thing from happening with the proverbial tweaks, I think things can happen here that would not be dramatic. But that could lead to substantial. Improvements. First of all the the system that's been in a ineffective in Illinois for some time where you can get what in Massachusetts would be called a firearm. Identification out there. They call it the hip. Oh. That should be tightened up a little bit by one additional procedural requirement which is that they have to do a fingerprint. Check if you do a fingerprint. Check you submit the fingerprints to the FBI laboratory down in Quantico Virginia, they run it through their system. And generally they can pretty quickly identify whether or not somebody has a a record of a felony anywhere in the country that would be reported back to the requesting state in this case of annoy, and they would have known right up front deny in the legal rights to legal authority to buy and possess a weapon. Now, we all know that that does not mean somebody might not quote on on the illegal market by something on the black market. But you do what you can with the tools that you have available to you at the time. This is a simple steps that could be taken administratively. It's not much of. Additional burden. It adds a, you know, a couple of weeks extra time, maybe the to get the information back from the FBI, but that's pretty reasonable in the circumstances. And that one step would significantly increase the likelihood of uncovering somebody who had a felony record. And and that's putting him on notice that we know you've had the felony record would not going to allow you to have a weapon lawfully, and the locals would know local police would know this person apply was turned down. You know? Maybe we should keep an eye on Terry's a reasonable to expect that some people may go nuts over the idea of being fingerprinted to get a gun. Oh, yeah. That could be an issue. I know, but you know, I I had a great to criminal law professor in law school who used to tell us that you can't worry too much about the people who have. Unusual views on the left or the right. You've got the would try to. To and work with the great mass of people who are in the middle or pretty reasonable about things. I if he gets worried about the people on the fringes what they feel about things nothing of note is ever gonna happen. So you hit the mainstream. You look to hit the gas. You've gotta hit the mainstream and stay with that. And and sometimes it's great to to be a system that that recognizes the rights of minorities, sometimes even minorities. A small as a single person. But sometimes that's single personnel that very small group of people who are objecting. Unreasonable and they're blocking progress for everybody. We're going to go to the phone lines. Again, you want to be part of the conversation. Six one seven two five four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. We've got Ralph in Maine on the line Ralph. How are you tonight? Good morning. Thank you. Hey, what part of being you calling from? From right above Augusta. Maine the capital Belgrade. Yup. You have a camp up this way. I am my family is gonna place in in in in Kennebunkport. And I know you guys don't even you guys. Don't even consider that part of me. And I understand that route that's still that's northern Massachusetts. But I I've been up to Augusta. Yeah. But I have to Augusta and and their friends up in the in the Bangor area and traveled around there too. So good to have you along for the ride tonight. What's going on? Thank you. Well, the second amendment the right side. Is always complaining that the government is going to take. The government is going to take the guns away. Vice president Biden said that everybody should have a shotgun in their house. So why do they keep saying this as they have about the government taking the guns? They're not going to take the guns. And and Rush Limbaugh and back in Hannity. They keep hopping on that government wants your gun. Somebody has to come out. I'm both sides and say that's not going to happen. I think that ties into Ralph with what Terry it said is old professor as you kind of had kind of like have to look at the mainstream. And and what the majority of people are considering in this point, I realized a long time ago because sadly Terry knife had so many discussions the Vegas shooting parkland shooting it just goes on and on and I've come to realize if something as completely over the top as the the Las Vegas shootings or an hour at the first anniversary the shootings, if those sorts of things did not create a massive change, in the way, people view gun possession gun laws and like in this country. Then it just ain't gonna happen. So I I've kind of like realized whether it's left or right or upper down. I just realized what we're going to have to just accept for better for worse is apparently what we have right now is what we're gonna get. And we're gonna to. How do we tweak things at least to make a things a little less dangerous for us? Or is this the way the majority of people are willing to live here in the twenty first century because as I've talked about with Terri and ask Terry look this up, and and Terry I'm going to have you comment on these two because you could do far better job in this. And I do, you know, the the the evidence out there's absolutely it's empirical. This isn't something that happens around the world, the the enormity and regularity of these mass shootings is confined to the United States. In an extraordinary degree. You have to add up the totals of several other several other nations like the second third fourth and fifth other nations in mass shootings to come close to what the totals are America. So we're we're. And I think we'll have to understand do we do massive change. If it hasn't happened, yet Ralph I don't know if it's going to happen. Well, do they accept? I think Fox News. It contributes to the hatred of the democrat Republican thing we never had that before Fox News, who's always Republicans and Democrats used to get along. Then all of a sudden you got. Fake news for pin- opinion. They're all opinions. They get by with that. And I think you're right. It's funny. Whether people again are on the left or on the right what everyone seems to agree on is the system as it exists right now is Broken Hill. But in the town, maybe step by step. How do we fix that? You raise some good points that other people have raised Ralph. And let's see is something going to happen. Finally outrageous enough to maybe make people look at things a little differently, and if not can we at least tweak things because I you know, I I read an article recently that was a British newspaper where you can go in America to be safe from a mass shooting, and basically it was a blank page. How powerful is that. Because if you think of in the last couple of years, it's been bars it's been clubs. It's been concerts. It's been churches. It's been schools. It's been restaurants. And and it's pretty telling sometimes the way people outside look at things inside. So Terry before I let Ralph go I didn't Tacoma. And then I didn't about how unique America is in these things. Unfortunately, we are an outlier in this regard. We per capita the good far more guns owned privately than any other country in the world. The second amendment has been an important part of the constitution since it was a it is not going anywhere. Private ownership of guns is not going away. And the suggestions the content suggestions from some sources that it's going to which just silly. They just don't make sense. It's not going to happen. And and what we need is some more people from like some of the people from Maine, historically, like Margaret chase Smith who was a Republican, but who could work across the aisle, and who was a courageous person and get a lot done. We had a few more people like that in congress and in the legislatures. We'd be a whole lot better off than we are at the moment here L, thank you for the call. And thank you for listening. Keep listening and a call again. Okay. Take care now. We'll see you. Thank you. Six one seven two five four ten thirty is the number six one seven two five four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. That's toll-free number want to be part of the conversation. We're going to take a quick break. And then right back to our chat with Terry Downes. We gotta talk. What did we.

"And there's always the danger that somebody misses something. And and wasn't there an initial infraction the Mississippi as well? Yes. The mississippi. Was found guilty of a a a felony involving violence. And and therefore he was disqualified from holding any kind of a gun permit under Illinois state law, but it really didn't reach the right people. I guess sadly at the right time if the local people in Illinois had conducted a fingerprint check when he first asked for firearms identification card, which is something that the local authorities can issue. They probably would have uncovered this record. They didn't because it was not required. I don't know whether it was an option on not it wasn't required. Shortly thereafter, when he applied for the concealed carry permits that has told through the state police that required a fingerprint test and check and that's when the felony from Mississippi.

About a minute. We're gonna have to do a news and traffic updates may be unfair to ask for the definitive answer in this. We tease this and continued on the other side of the news. So we get to the age old question every time you, and I discussed these things and what they have dozen years. We've done this. We've discussed darn many of them having we Terry. Yes. We what do we do within reason? Because people say well, you need overriding. We've got a completely redo, and we know that's not gonna happen for whatever reasons whether it should it shouldn't we know what this point it ain't going to happen because it would have happened already. Instead, we get the Thiessen Ps. We don't even see thoughts and prayers anymore is we we we utter this that cliche so much now that people have just come up with a shortcut for which is we offer teasing fees and things just just continue. So maybe we can just set this up, and we'll talk about it after the break within reasonable adjustments. Or tweaks rather than the? Overlaying redoing of the gun laws in this country. And the like, which means it may not be a bad idea. That's not the question what we know is that she's not going to happen. So but within perhaps just some easy in reasonable tweaks.

I promise you dean Johnson sitting in for Bradley Jay tonight, twelve fifteen outside twenty one degrees. Jay talking.

Always welcome six one seven two five four ten thirty against six one seven two five four ten thirty and the toll free number because you know, we do hit close to forty states and much of Canada with this nighttime signal eight nine two nine ten thirty s at number eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. And what does it say about my pathetic life that I begin very pleased with myself each evening when I can remember those numbers without being prompted. And we have I guess is Terry Downes the executive director for homeland security at Middlesex community college. Jerry has been a regular guest. When yours truly has been a part of the operations here at the station for a variety of reasons. All good ones. He plays. Well with others. He knows his stuff. And he keeps us informed about what is going on in the world of homeland security and other related topics. Terry. How are you this evening? I'm good good to be back. It's always good talking with you. Hope you're doing well, my friend. Yes, I am as I said during the intro tonight. Whenever I have you on people must think that you're like on a call button that I at last minute. I said, oh, look what happened. The bad phone. We've got to get Terry on. And of course, sadly that never happened as you, and I talk as we do on a regular basis, and after if you ever been on for a while as Terry let's let's get together and catch up on things. Sadly, inevitably inexorably, and whatever adjective people may want to put it in the air when I do that something happens, and I'm not insinuating. It's a it's a Hex or anything like that. What I think it does say is. It's a sad commentary about the times are living in. Yeah. It is the things to keep happening with with disturbing regularity. And I think we talked like three weeks ago or something about scheduling tonight. No idea these things. Continue our conversation. I always liked to connect with you. And find out what? A bear with me terrorism dealing with some difficulties here the second. I was talking with you about the latest events, and sadly, we've got a bunch of them. Don't we? Yes, we do. It's unfortunate. But that's that's the tenor of the times we're living in shall we? I said well, well what shall we talk about? I it always sounds like such a nasty way to put that. Let's talk about what happened recently out in the midwest. It is in a way part and parcel of everything that is happening. Far too commonplace these days. Yes. This was terribly sad situation in Aurora Illinois, not to be confused, obviously with the other horrible shooting a few years ago in Aurora Colorado. This was not far from from Chicago. With six people were killed five of them innocent victims the six being the perpetrator himself. Six others were injured in the shooting that took place has a lot of the witness a lot of the listeners know at a place where this fella had worked as a place called the Henry Pratt TT plant, and he was either too little unclear he either had already been told he was being fired or he was laid off rather. But he was or he was in the middle of here. A meeting in which he was being informed that he was being let go it looks like he knew that. He was being let go because he arrived with a loaded handgun on person for the meeting. So he knew that his time. There was going to be ending one way or the other. And of course. The sad part. All of this is so many sad portions of about all of this. But the sad part of all of this is of course, he brought the gun with him. And he never should have had the thing in the first place. Correct. That's right. His name was Gary Martin. He's forty five hit works there. Apparently for fifteen years. Had a conviction for a felony in Mississippi and aggravated assault even guilty nineteen ninety-five actually served two and a half years in Mississippi prison, and he had six arrests with the Aurora police departments for things ranging from domestic violence to violating a protective order and disorderly conduct. Apparently, what happened was in two thousand fourteen he was issued an Illinois firearm played card that happened apparently because the background check in Illinois for that kind of a card which did not allow someone carry concealed weapon. That did not involve a fingerprint. Check. However shortly thereafter, he was able to buy gun legally under the circumstances. Same gun that was used during the shooting. Apparently from a licensed dealer later on he applied for concealed carry permit. And the state police conducted a fingerprint check uncovered the Celani revoked firearms identification cards and notify them in writing that he was required to turn in the gun. He had purchased. He never did that. And no one ever followed up on it. And apparently that's more common than than anyone would like under the system in Illinois. So deal right legally. He should not have had it. He should have turned it in. That's not helping anybody. But it it just shows you yet another situation where the system quote, unquote, failed the public, and this is the thing that must be frustrating to to so many people when I can talk about the weight impacted the families of those directly involved in the shooting, but without getting into we need stricter there. So we need looser that we're going to be more vigilant about their. Here's a simple situation where the basic laws already in place. Failed us. That's correct. He he did have the gun had gotten it from a licensed gun dealer who did all the reporting. The licensed gun dealer was supposed to do. They later found out. He should not have any authority to carry any kind of a weapon possess any kind of a weapon because of his felony conviction was ordered to turn it in for which presumably he would have received fair compensation. Nobody's just gonna sees the gun and not paying for the being titled the compensation for it. He didn't do it. The local police indicate that they have no record of receiving notice from the state police that they were supposed to go in and follow up on the state. Police order apparently under this system. The state police don't follow the order up. This supposed to notify local police local police say they didn't get the notification. So yes, this is system in place had the system it'd be a reasonably good chance that they would have actually gotten at least that gun, but it didn't work and we see what's happened since then. And and this wasn't even your typical Saturday night special. This thing had a laser sight on correct? Yes. It was it was a forty caliber in gun, which is which is a, you know, all all of these handguns are in can cause death. No question about that. But this particular one. Was forty caliber. So it's pretty heavy calibre, and it had attached to it by all reports laser sight, which makes it difficult to miss when you when you know, how to use a laser sight and you're using correctly. It's hard to miss the target your. It's twelve twenty four here in downtown Boston. It is Jay talking Jeanne Johnson or Dino J pinching four Bradley Jay for the evening. Bradley's fine. Just out enjoying himself with some well deserved time off. I guess is Terry Downes the executive director for homeland security at Middlesex community college catching up in some of the recent events associated to homeland security both internationally domestically and we're focusing on the recent shooting in Aurora. This was just hungry all our Terry. But this is just how heartbreaking many levels because the victims here would chest hard-working blue-collar family guys who were literally in the wrong place. This is especially poignant. I mean, this is really really heartbreaking without mentioning the names. I can tell you that there was a twenty four year old human resources manager. So clearly a young person the plant manager who only thirty seven years old. The local union stewarts forty six years old. A stock room attendant who was also forklift officer. He was age fifty five he was the oldest of them and a grandfather. And and this is awful a student at northern Illinois university who was. One years of age on his first day as an intern at at the company. I just remember hearing and seeing the items at least one of the victims have not a couple them, Texas, their wives. I love you. I've just been shot. I teared up when I first saw it. I mean, I really it just got to me right away. And even think about it, you say just an awful thing. And you know, the systems were in place. He was initially contact you really needs to turn him. But again, as you mentioned, Terry, he's got a long record of being pretty squeezy kinda guy. So just an a letter saying turn this in he's not gonna do that unless there's a follow up of some sort or another. So in a way the system did follow through but not enough not enough. And this is as you point out. This is not the kind of person who's going to get a leather that notifies him of a legal obligation who's likely to say, oh, I didn't realize they needed to do this. You know, I'll I'll be down tomorrow to the police station with the leather and they end gun and turn it in. And yeah, I wanna be in compliance a fellow like this couldn't care less about a letter. He receives from authorities. He wants to win thirty one. It's in his interest to do. So he might be able to get something like a firearms identification card or a licensed to carry a concealed weapon. But when the is no he doesn't he couldn't care less. And in the process, of course, he did unspeakable harm do so many people and their families. He was shot. Of course, these people are only going to have to guess as to what was going through his mind, just begin indiscriminately shooting, a where there are people that he picked out for one reason or another we're never going to know. But as you said, if one was an internist, I in the job, I think it's fair to assume this guy wasn't picking on this kid for any particular reason, he just happened to be there at the time. Now, he didn't even know who the young fellow was heartbreaking now part of the breakdown. It seems is we were dealing with state to state regulations. And when you do that, there's always a little gap that seems a little synapse. State to locality so state to municipality so noise state police to a municipal police department within the state of Illinois by ES, you still gorham from agency to agency..

Dreaming internal a journey through the passion prophet in peril of our most coveted prehistoric creatures now. No, no, no, don't don't don't worry. It's a it's a fun book. It's a great book any talks about the relationship throughout history and particularly today between turtles and people. And what it says about us in about society in general.

So there you have it plenty to keep you amused. Occupied. India Andrew change throughout the course of the evening. Mark Levin is on the other side of the glass. I would call Mark an Uber producer banal. Uber's taken on terms that I don't think it's fair to associate with market anyway. So let's just say super producer. Mark Levin is on the other side of the glass to make sure the program sounds even better than it deserves. And with that. I think we're ready to begin things here at high gear it is twelve thirteen in downtown Boston. Twenty one degrees outside Jay talking with dean Johnson, we're gonna take a quick break. And then we'll have our conversation with Terry down. Stay with us. Everyone. JJ Bradley, Jay,.

"In arlington. One of the things I wanted to mention as I talked about this great while Bill hickok book and joking with the author Tom Claven about it. As we're trying to describe what sort of a man while Bill hickok was. He was a rare fish. Dresser was very very weird as parents always tried to address well bathed daily, and you can imagine in the old west that was not an easy thing to do. And not only was not easy. It was not something many did beating weekly was exceptional. But he used to bathe daily. Well over six feet tall. Which was very big for those days. He ever check was maybe five four or five five for most men. But as joking with Tom glavin, there is a passage in the book where the wife of George Armstrong Custer himself, quite a character. Of course describes. While Bill hickok in her memoir that was published in eighteen ninety. And if you consider the times, it's difficult to imagine a more lusty passage here. Asked Thomas at Tom with did they ever get to know each other in the biblical sense, as the expression goes, he said, well, you know, she always danced around that you never know. But listen to this passage how she describes wild Bill hickok, and this will give you a good example wide such a fun book to read. Tall live in free in every motion. He wrote and walked as if every muscle was perfection, and the careless swing of his body as he moved seemed perfectly in keeping with the man the country the time in which he lived I do not recall anything finer in the way of physical perfection than wild Bill when he swung himself lightly from his saddle and with graceful swaying step squarely Senate Scholla's in well-poised head approached our tent for orders. He was rather fantastically cloud. Of course. But all seemed perfectly in keeping with the time and place. He did not make an armory of his waist, but carry two pistols, you were top boots riding breeches and dark blue flannel. Shirt with scarlet set in the front a loose neck handkerchief left, his fine firm throat free. I do not remember all his features. But the Frank Manley expression of his fearless is and his courteous manner gave one a feeling of confidence in his word. And his undaunted courage. Yikes. The only thing missing from that is they're saying is again, I joked earlier this evening is why I do believe that I have a case of the VP's. Quite exceptional book, quite an exceptional, man. If I can find one last passage that had a lot to do with how skilled he was with his handguns. It was said that he can throw a tomato can the air and. Well, here we go. He enjoyed putting on shooting exhibitions, especially impressive was his Ambi district. Ambidextrous? Accuracy witnesses reported kill all of this. This is the eyewitness accounts. Witnesses reported seeing hickok driving a cork through the neck of a whiskey bottle at twenty paces. The bullet. Wow. Splitting a bullet on the edge of a dime at the same distance twenty paces and putting his many as a dozen bullet holes in a tomato can that he'd been tossed in the air? Yeah. This guy was a gunfighter. Letting the public know he was always at the top of his game could dissuade ambitious gunmen from trying to take hickok on such men that may have entertained thoughts of gunfighter glory, but they weren't suicidal. This was a man who was on the cusp of becoming the eighteen sixties equivalent of a matinee idol in a country. Civil war glory was receding into history. And we're now was looking west for new legends. And he filled that Bill boy did he feel that Bill glavin just dealt with what he could absolutely find as a fact and there there's plenty in there. So just take note of the book, it's a great read. And if you know someone who is a history buff or a fan of the old west. Oh, goodness. Gracious. Are you set for that? We've got about a minute left to call. We're going to be a minute left before we had done here. I will be back in a couple of weeks, and I'll be sneaking in during the month here and there because they'll be filling in for Bradley, Jay, something guests, I'll have on with me during the remainder of the month. Well, it's about time to. To have some of our old for guests on with us. So you can expect that we're going to have Terry Downes, the director of homeland security Middlesex community college will be pop again before the month is over. We're also going to have Gary summers of antiques roadshow collectables fame. Joining me before we are done with February where you can call in and get yourself appraised. Find out how much your stuff might be worth. And you just never know who else might be popping in and before we are done here. A couple of quick scores for you before we wrap things up. Again, Bruins beat the LA kings five to four and over time. That's the good news. The bad news at this is really bad news. Trust me, there's going to be a lot of collateral damage in Celtics locker room because of this game. Celtics lost to the LA clippers won twenty three to one twelve at one point the Celtics had twenty eight point lead and blew it. The most that they have given up. Since two thousand three enjoy tonight. Hope you did to talk to you soon. Everybody's CBS news update. Now, there are two women accusing Virginia dilute tenant governor Justin Fairfax of sexually assaulting them. And both stand ready to testify, but see begets, the coal Killian tells us. Fairfax maintains he will not resign. Meanwhile, debonair Ralph Northam told state employees in a letter to stay in office. Nothing last week a racist photo from his medical school yearbook surface, north them initially said he was in the picture only to backtrack later, then acknowledge he wants wore black face. So did the state's attorney general Mark herring? Bloomberg Suhil Kapur explains. It's a train wreck for Virginia. Democrats that top three Democrats in Virginia are facing bipartisan calls to step aside. And if they do that they would be handing over power to the Republican speaker of the house in a redistricting cycle where they're redrawing the map. So they're hanging tight right now. It's not clear any of them are going to step aside at this point one democratic delegates says he. Is preparing articles of impeachment against Fairfax, CBS, news update and Allison keys..
