I joined host Jon Scott (a very nice man, BTW) for a discussion on gun control after the massacre in Parkland, Florida, Jamie Weinstein from National Review joined as the conservative commentator.
What do you think of my proposals?
Here is the transcript and at the bottom is the full segment from Fox News. In the full segment I lay out the argument for mental health checks, too.
The key is to make it more difficult to rapidly kill a large number of people in a very short period of time. I call for banning bump stocks immediately. Lets remove high capacity magazines immediately. At least, make it easy, Look, I’ve fired AR-15s. I have a DD 214 from the Army Reserve. I fired, I’ve gone skeet shooting. I’ve gone hunting. I know what it’s like to use firearms. There is a rational basis to limit what is available. Justice Scalia himself wrote in two 2009’s D.C. v. Heller that the government has every right to limit what the populace can buy in terms of firearms. Let’s go down that route and make it harder to kill 17 people in a very short window of time.
Major media outlets urgently call for gun control as President Trump stresses the need to address America’s mental health issues; reaction from Jamie Weinstein, host of the ‘Jamie Weinstein Show’ on National Review, and Ethan Bearman, radio talk host show and author.
