miss a story!Kimmel Fallon Colbert all of them go after the NRA Americans are not buying what the media is selling and we're about to hit the deck at deadline so what does that mean for all the illegal immigrant dreamers and Ben Shapiro this is the Ben Shapiro show [Music] oh we have so many things to get to today I'm speaking tonight in Omaha we are sold out 1500 seat theater I'm doing a full on exposition on the Second Amendment what its meaning is where it comes from and what it protects tonight so look for that online or if you're there in person I look forward to seeing you there we've a lot to get to on the show as well we're going to talk about the security clearance status for Jared Kushner we're gonna talk about the confirmation bias that is now overrun the media we're going to talk about Dick's Sporting Goods supposedly banning their sale of quote/unquote assault weapons which they actually did five years ago and now they're just reopen but before we get to any of that I first want to talk a little bit about more facts that are now coming out about the shooting so every day there are more facts that are coming out about the shooting now we sort of know what we know at this point until a full investigation is undergone but here's a fact that should matter to you when it comes to how Americans feel about what happened in parkland and who they blame about what happened in parkland it is not the NRA it is not while biding gun owners so Rasmussen had a poll yesterday a new survey and it suggests this is after the CNN propaganda Town Hall the the two minutes hate on CNN here's what Rasmussen Reports quote 54 percent of American adults believe the failure of government agencies to respond to numerous warning signs from the prospective killer is more to blame for the mass shooting only 33 percent attribute the deaths more to a lack of adequate gun control 11 percent opted for something else among Americans who have elementary children at elementary school children or secondary school aged children 61% think the government is more to blame just 23 percent of those adults felt a lack of adequate gun control 41 percent of respondents by the way say that they opted for stricter gun control 40 percent say more action is needed to treat mental health issues only 50 percent of Democrats actually said that a lack of gun control was the real problem here all of it just to say whenever you see polls are some polls out today suggesting that even among Republicans support for gun control is rising you need to take all of that with a grain of salt because that's like asking Americans as I've said in the past it's like asking Americans are you for Less government spending the answer is always yes but then you say okay what do you want to see cut and suddenly Americans run for the hills well the same thing is true with regard to gun control people say are you for more gun control most people go yeah sounds good why not keeps bad at the hands of bad people and then when you say okay well that's gonna mean we're after gonna ban all the rifles then all the Americans say well no we're not gonna do that then the poll suddenly shift so specifics are very different from general propositions that are put forward in these polling numbers all of which goes to show you that the media's attempt to paint this as the the shifting points on gun control it's just not true it's just not correct and the fact is that even Democrats are split on this they don't want to talk about it but they are then that news is obvious since The Huffington Post reported yesterday morning after the Las Vegas Massacre the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is regional press secretary Evan Lucas key actually wrote to candidates in the Northeast not to politicize the shooting he wrote quote teams last night's shooting will dominate the news today and will garner serious coverage the rest of the week you and your candidate will be understandably outraged and upset as will your community however do not politicize it today now the Caspi was right politicizing shootings in the aftermath shootings bad form and it's gotten even worse over the past week and a half and all the media reported this is just a grassroots movement that was happening on gun control and now it turns out that the so-called marked for our lives that's happening in Washington DC on March 24th at which some of the student witnesses and student survivors at Parkland are going to be the featured speakers that this is now being backed by Planned Parenthood it's being backed by black lives matter it's being backed by moveon.org it's being backed by every town for gun safety so all of these organized leftist movements are now getting behind these kids and astroturfing what is going to be very large March in Washington DC that results in virtually nothing and the reason that's gonna result in virtually nothing is again because the American people do not support this the American people look at what happened in parkland and what they see is a failure of law enforcement which is why yesterday when North Texas sheriff put out a notice that got him wide acclaim he the Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphy told his deputies quote with the recent tragedy in Florida I wanted to make my clear my policy on responding to an active shooter all commissioned deputies if you respond to an active shooter you are expected to take immediate action we do not stage and wait for SWAT we do not cover in a parking lot we do not wait for another agency we go in and do our duty we go in to engage and stop the shooter and save lives if for any reason you feel you cannot follow this directive please inform your supervisor and we will work to get you reassigned okay this is the most Americans feel about what the authorities ought to be doing even though the left wants to suggest that this was not a failure of authority whoever would prefer to jump into the debate on this on this moralistic level the left would prefer to suggest that there's a moral failure failure that's taking part on the place of those who do not support widespread gun control and that of course is not true Marco Rubio is one of the people who's been hit hardest from that senator Rubio from Florida you remember he was at that Town Hall two minutes hate on CNN and he was shellacked by a bunch of the students one of the students even comparing him to the mass shooter himself Rubio put out a tweet today that I think sums up the state of our gun control debate he said quote the debate after Parkland reminds us we the people don't really like each other very much we smear those who refused to agree with us we claim a judeo-christian heritage but celebrate arrogance and boasting and worst of all we have been infected the next generation with the same disease now he's getting ratioed are there a bunch of people on the Left who didn't like that he said this their brunch people who thought was just terrible that he would say something like this but he is 100% correct the fact is that the left has turned this into a referendum on the moral character of people who disagree with them and most Americans are not up for that most Americans are not interested in castigating their fellow Americans as murderers and murderers supporters which is why it's really fascinating there been a bunch of corporations that have disassociated from the NRA over the last week there is a poll out today from morning consult that showed every single corporation every single corporation that disassociated from the NRA in the aftermath of this gun control debate has been losing losing public support because they'll gain four or five points in public support from Democrats but lose 60% of public support from Republicans who feel like they're under attack and the reason Republicans feel like they're under attack is because they are under attack okay the left they say they're not for removing second Amendment rights they only want rational reasonable gun controls that's just not true they want to remove semi-automatic weapons from every person in the United States if they could have their way that is the end goal they won't be honest about it many members of the left but this is actually what they want and you can see it in the arguments that they're making so today the New York Times has a full piece about how the ar-15 is essentially military technology in the hands of civilians well that's true of any semi-automatic rifle they say well look at the ar-15 look at its muzzle velocity it has 3,000 feet per second muzzle velocity this is true of any two to three or 5.56 millimeter ammo firing rifle the muzzle velocity on those rifles is very high it always has been it will continue to be the notion that it's just military technology in the hands of civilians again every rifle then his military technology in the hands of civilians because every rifle was at some point military technology in the hands of civilians even bolt-action rifles were military technology in the hands of civilians this argument is akin to saying that the engine in your car is just like the engines in the cars of people in the military okay that's true but it doesn't take you very far and when people on the left rip on the ar-15 and suggest the ar-15 is the root of all evil this just demonstrates complete lack of gun knowledge there are a thousand types of the ar-15 there are many many different types of semi-automatic rifle that fire at similar velocity with the similar callable with similar similar caliber ammunition banning the ar-15 or the branded ar-15 would do nothing to stop the spread of rifles and it would do nothing to stop the the actual problem of school shootings by the way there's a study out today showing that school students have actually been declining in recent years not increasing declining we're not allowed to talk about these statistics of course because to do so is seen as somehow undermining the case in favor of pushing against school shootings but the reality is that just as gun violence in the United States has declined markedly from its highs in 1992-1993 school shootings have been declining in recent years pretty rapidly that doesn't mean that what happened in parkland isn't tragic and horrible and an active evil it does mean that we ought to take a look at the measures that we are purporting to push and compare those to the rights that we are attempting to infringe and what rights are we in tempting to infringe well the answer is all semi-automatic rifles so I remember made this case on MSNBC he's given a lot of credit for the left from this because I remember is a lawyer but he does really bad legal analysis here and I will explain why he explains the Second Amendment and his view does not protect a ar-15s his logic here makes no sense the Second Amendment does not apply to ar-15 it does not apply to assault-style weapons it never has Congress may legally ban those weapons without touching the Second Amendment that's a legal fact but it's hard for me then that is not a legal fact that is not a legal fact okay what he says there if you go back to the screen where he puts up some text on the screen the screen that he says there well what he says that the Supreme Court has never ruled that ar-fifteens are protected by the Second Amendment well that does not mean that there is no right to an ar-15 the Supreme Court has never actually ruled on whether twitter is protected by the First Amendment because that's never come up before of the Supreme Court the Supreme Court rejects certiorari on cases all the time doesn't mean that the right doesn't exist case is legally illiterate I'll explain why it's even more legally illiterate in just a second first I want to say thank you to our sponsors over at policy genius so if you've got a car you have car insurance it's got a home you have home insurance and you got a life you should have life insurance okay if you're a responsible human being you should be protecting your life with life insurance you should be ensuring that your family is safe you should be ensuring that your family is secure if god forbid something terrible should happen to you but four out of ten people do not have life insurance there's no excuse for that policy genius has made it easier to understand compare and buy life insurance so here's the way that it works you go to policy genius calm and in five minutes you can compare quotes from over 15 life insurance providers when you compare quotes this is competitive shopping you will save money it is that simple they've helped over 4 million people shop for insurance they've placed over 20 billion dollars in coverage they don't by the way just do life insurance they also do health insurance disability insurance pet insurance renter's insurance all these insurance programs you can shop around for just by using policy genius so if you've been putting off getting life insurance because it's depressing to talk about what happens if you die don't be stupid because once you're dead it's too late so make sure that you go to policy genius com get your quotes apply in minutes it is that easy you'll be glad you did it and more importantly your family will be glad you did if something terrible should happen to you god forbid again protect yourself protect your family there's no excuse in my view for being irresponsible and not having a life insurance policy go to policy genius.com check it out policy genius.com again the best way to shop for life insurance okay so Melbourne makes the case it makes this argument that because the Supreme Court has rejected certiorari certiorari is an appeal so the way it works is that you have a case it goes to a district court judge that is then appealed up to a circuit court judge who goes to the circuit court of appeals and then finally it's appealed all the way up to the Supreme Court what is sense at the Supreme Court is something called a writ of certiorari which is essentially a petition asking that the Supreme Court take up the case now Supreme Court will reject writs of certiorari for a variety of reasons some of those reasons include the fact they agree with the the Court of Appeals sometimes they say the case isn't right because it's very common claim that a case has not actually reap right has not reached ripeness because there are a bunch of other circuit courts they have not ruled on the case there are cases where they say that it's not just an issue of law they want to take up there are million reasons to reject it to reject writs and certiorari and it is also true that none of the cases that have been brought before the Supreme Court specifically deal with ar-15s because there's not a state in the country that has attempted to actually ban ar15 even in California there's only recently in attempt to quasi ban ar-15s but even that ban is not supremely clear and certainly confiscation of ar-15s has never been tried and if it were to go up to the Supreme Court there's a very good shot that it would be shot down but Mel Birsa jests and this is actually a really dangerous constitutional point that Melbourne is making because it essentially says that if the Supreme Court has not ruled on an issue you don't have a right to it so if the Supreme Court hasn't ruled on whether twitter is protected free speech then that means that you don't have a right to it now you see the Melbourne would never agree to the same logic with regard to say same-sex marriage before oberst all right so before a burst fell the Supreme Court rejected same-sex marriage cases over and over and over rejected a bunch of writs of certiorari and what re Melbourne have said there is no right to same-sex marriage oh that's I know of course he wouldn't have said that he would have said in my view there's a right to same-sex marriage it's inherent in the text of the Constitution and just because the Supreme Court has not accepted the case yet doesn't mean the right doesn't exist in fact the reality is that under the 9th and 10th amendments the Constitution explicitly states that rights that are not overtly stated in the Constitution of the United States itself are still rights that are held by the people in other words the Bill of Rights is not meant to be a comprehensive Charter of Rights it's meant to point out some of the most specific rights that it wants protected from the federal government but that does not mean that there are other rights that don't exist all other rights don't exist beyond which the second amendment is pretty clear about what it means when it says a well-regulated militia being necessary to the preservation of a free State the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed it's specifically talking about civilians having access to guns that they can then use when they go into the militia at the time these were military light weapons right I mean these were rifles these were muskets and that same principle carries forward so what Melbourne is saying here makes no sense on a legal level but here's the more important point when I remember once again an ar-15 when the New York Times points out the ar-15 that means they want to ban every semi-automatic rifle in the United States because there's no serious distinction between a Bushmaster two to three and an ar-15 there is no significant distinction between between you know very Springfield rifle and an ar-15 you know there are a thousand types of rifle all of which fired the same sort of caliber ammunition and just because some look scarier than others doesn't mean that they are less scary than others which is why when you take a course in guns the very first thing they say is that of course you don't fire it anywhere near a person of course you don't fire it it's something you're not willing to destroy rifles are meant to do damage rifles are meant to kill things rifles are meant to destroy things they're meant to kill people presumably people who are bad who come into your home but a rifle as a tool of killing that does not mean that a rifle itself is so inherently dangerous that we have to be on all of them this one's one correlation the left attempts to draw between the number of guns in a particular society and the level of murder in particular society just does not hold that's particularly true for rifles the more people are killed by hands in fists every year in the United States that are killed by rifles in the United States and gun ownership alone by civilian population generally is not a good proxy for crime rate gun ownership rates in places like Vermont are extraordinarily high come on has an extraordinarily low crime rate the same thing is true in New Hampshire and if you go to other states some some places Louisiana there's very high gun ownership rate there's very high crime rate now important to note most of that crime is not taking place in the boonies most of that crime is taking place in the major cities most of which have actual gun control regulations on the books and most of which are governed by Democrats all of which is to say that the the simplistic attempts to draw a point of concurrence between a cross point of data between gun ownership and and murder that doesn't really hold it doesn't really hold doesn't even hold in Europe by the way where Norway has many more guns per civilian than Britain does and Britain has a has twice as bad a murder rate so these these things just the statistics just do not hold for any of this now in a second I'm going to show you how it is that there are so many folks on the Left who ignore all of this in favor of the virtually signaling and that begins of course with our late night house now one of the great you since I think one of the things that's helping to destroy comedy in the country is the feeling that there are certain areas of American life that used to be off-limits for politics where we didn't feel like we were gonna be assaulted based on our politics when we turned on our TV and we watched Johnny Carson Johnny Carson was studiously anti political meaning that he was a Democrat apparently he was not a Reagan fan although he got to know Reagan and ended up liking him Johnny Carson was a Democrat but you wouldn't know that from watching Johnny Carson Jay Leno was a sort of halfway Republican you wouldn't know that from watching him because Jay Leno was studiously non-political now all of our late-night host have basically become political hacks and you can see that at work so last night Colbert Kimmel Fallon all of them are ardent leftist and all of them have decided when they need to go balls to the wall in pushing for gun control so here here's a mash-up of Colbert and Kimmel and Fallon here hear them talking about Trump's gun proposals with the Olympics over 90 countries have departed South Korea yep 90 groups waving goodbye or as the NRA calls those sponsors although gun owners if you go into almost any business and show them your gun you get stuff for free it's really here in reality there was an armed sheriff's deputy on site and it made no difference but Trump even has an explanation for that the reason a teacher with a handgun would be able to neutralize a shooter with an automatic weapon is because the teachers love the kids more see this is what happens when we elect a president who thought paul blart mall cop was a documentary it would be ridiculous coming from anyone but especially from Trump he's gonna run in yo when Trump ran for president that was the first time he ran in his entire life okay so all the late night hosts universally talking about how stupid it is to talk about why good people with guns can stop bad people with guns of course this is idiocy Kimmel's point particularly is incredibly stupid first of all he says that the shooter had an automatic weapon the shooter did not have an automatic weapon people on the Left who are talking about this stuff should at least learn basic terminology so they don't sound so they don't sound like complete morons but they're not bothering to do that and it's evident and all of this is really quite terrible for the level of political discourse in the country because when you have laughing audiences scoffing at the idea that an armed teacher can save anyone then anyway and you suggest that maybe we ought to arm more security guards in schools and Jimmy Kimmel just laugh that off by suggesting that an armed security guards did nothing at this school even though there are many schools all over the country our armed security guards everyday are stopping people with weapons like legitimately there there's armed security guards at I think it's over fifty percent of schools have some form of armed security and those armed security guards metal detectors there are a lot of weapons that are stopped every year going through those those metal detectors apparently Jimmy Kimmel opposes those as well simply because he thinks that a generalized regime of gun control is better and then he and Colbert and Fallon all of them suggest that if you oppose their agenda which they've not made clear they haven't exactly said what they want other than mass banning of guns which is never going to happen there are 300 million weapons in the country and a hundred million rifles when you say it when they suggest that if you oppose them this means that you are a bad person and what's amazing is that they've felt and they'll blowback in the ratings now part of this I think is the universality of leftist feeling in late-night means that you have no alternative nobody gonna switch from Kimmel to Fallon so you can hear the same gun control messaging but part of it is also that the ratings are so far down on all of these shows overall that the audience is fragmented okay Jimmy Kimmel's ratings are not anything like what Johnny Carson's ratings used to be because there are lots of networks very few people are actually watching these late-night shows in comparison to the number of people who are watching late-night shows before so they're really not broadcast their narrow cast even though they're on the networks and so Jimmy Kimmel can say in full honesty that there's no way to to go too far in bashing and president Trump for the GOP not at all I don't think you can go too far I think that you know I'm still doing a comedy show and I need to be funny and entertain my audience but I also think that we've matured enough to the point where we can accept late-night talk-show host speaking about a serious subject and I think that it's almost necessary now okay it's almost necessary now for late-night host to talk about political subjects well actually what Jimmy Kimmel has shown is it's necessary for our late-night host to study the subjects before they talk about them because literally every day he says something that's stupid about politics including in that clip a very short clip him talking about automatic weapons being used in the shooting which of course they were not and it's not just Jimmy Kimmel unfortunately the entire media have shown themselves virtually the entire media themselves to be activists on gun control issues rather than objective journalists okay so today's examples come courtesy of CNN so CNN has been the worst on this it's so funny they're all these folks in the media who are constantly complaining that people like President Trump are ripping on the media that people like me are ripping on the media how dare we rip on the media you know that or that Trump more importantly Trump rips on the media and therefore Americans don't like the media no as I said in my speech at CPAC we didn't like you before we had serious problems with the media before because we feel like you're lying to us when you claim that you're objective when you are clearly not objective when you are clearly not objective okay now as an example of CNN not being objective today Dick's Sporting Goods announced that they were going to immediately halt sales of assault-style rifles and high-capacity magazines and all of their stores including their field and stream stores I guess they have these things and banned the sales of all guns to anyone under 21 now after Sandy Hook they'd already stopped the sale of assault-style weapons which is a meaningless term meaning essentially rifles that look scary they've done that after Sandy Hook they're reiterating that today and extending it to a few more of their stores the chairman and CEO said on Good Morning America when we saw what the kids were going through and the grief of the parents and the kids who were killed in parkland we felt we needed to do something in other words there's an emotional appeal they responded to the emotional appeal now who cares I mean the reality is who cares because most people who are buying some is exporting goods we're not actually buying assault-style rifles from Dick's Sporting Goods they haven't been able to for years now if they want to raise their age of buying 221 that's fine it just means the person who's 19 and wants to buy a handgun is simply gonna walk across the street to the local gun store and buy a handgun in accordance with law but this is widely celebrated in the media stacks that we support and respect the Second Amendment we recognize and appreciate the vast majority of gun owners in the country are responsible law-abiding citizens but we have to help solve the problem that's in front of us gun violence is an epidemic that's taking the lives of too many people including the brightest hope for the future of America our kids well if you believe that but if you believe that then why not just stop selling all guns if you believe that the the problem in front of us is that all guns are the threat and that the sale of legal weapons to law-abiding citizens is the real threat then maybe should stop selling all guns in fact now stack revealed that the shooter in this case had purchased a shotgun at a at a store at a dict store within the past four months okay so is anything that they're doing would apparently I guess you know their new rules that they won't sell to anybody under 21 would have stopped him from getting a gun at a dick store okay so he waits until these 21 of them buys a gun into Dick's store like if they actually think the shotgun is the threat not the person then they should be banning the sale of all guns and they should just stop selling guns to exporting goods and I'm amazed sort of that the media have fallen for this PR trap from Dick's but this is what they have fallen for the anchors over at CNN have made mockeries of themselves as so as quote unquote objective journalist I mean true mockeries of themselves so Erin Burnett right is is now she's supposed to be objective journalist right she is she's an anchor she's not a she's not an opinion host she tweeted this out quote politicians mail a purge to stand up to the NRA but Dick's Sporting Goods USA's largest sporting goods retailer will stop selling assault-style weapons and raise minimum age for all gun sales to twenty one is that journalism or is that advocacy obviously that's advocacy Chris Cuomo had on the CEO and and the big headline in the back said Dick's takes a stand wow that's not advocacy at all that's journalism dicks takes a stand now the NRA is also taking a stand it's just that Chris Cuomo doesn't like that stance oh you'd never have on Dana lash and then the background say NRA takes a stand of course not because they're only certain stands that CNN actually likes and CNN has been doing this for weeks now from the awful town-hall event to a watching basic reporting about weapons there was a CNN host yesterday who who talked about a full semi-automatic which doesn't even make any sense what the hell is a full semi-automatic supposed to mean now something out of mattress means you pull the trigger once in a bullet comes out okay but it's a full semi-automatic and then there's a really funny video of him trying to fire a trying to fire a semi-automatic weapon and the gun jumping in his hands because he doesn't know how to fire a weapon does not up locking into his shoulder and my wife fires an AR better than he fires an AR and then you know botching basic facts about the weapons making allowing these students to go on national television and make unquestioned about the evils of the people with whom they are talking I make an unquestioning about Marco Rubio being an evil person and then we're supposed to take CNN seriously okay here's a CNN expert yesterday saying that women can't carry guns because they wear dresses like this is a real thing that they said one of the things that people don't talk about a lot of these school Sandy Hook at an all-female faculty from principal to teachers and for a woman where are you gonna hide that gun during the day you can't put it your desk drawer somebody might steal it you can't get to it you're not gonna have it in a safe in the principal's office you can't get to it on your person if you wear a dress if you were a skirt are you gonna have to wear a jacket every day with a belt and a holster the way a detective you know on duty would do it's it's not a real practical solution even for a variety of reasons okay look how stupid this anchor is where's the anchor I don't even know who that anchor is she's sitting there nodding through this whole thing women wear pants I mean I hate to break it to CNN but you know outside of hijab land you know outside of like places where women are forced to wear skirts you know I'm forced to wear dresses all over the world I'm not talking to all Muslim communities are lots of Muslim women who are pants outside of places where women are forced to do that in a free society like the United States lots of

illegal immigrant dreamers and Ben Shapiro this is the Ben Shapiro show [Music] oh we have so many things to get to today I'm speaking tonight in Omaha we are sold out 1500 seat theater I'm doing a full on exposition on the Second Amendment what its meaning is where it comes from and what it protects tonight so look for that online or if you're there in person I look forward to seeing you there we've a lot to get to on the show as well we're going to talk about the security clearance status for Jared Kushner we're gonna talk about the confirmation bias that is now overrun the media we're going to talk about Dick's Sporting Goods supposedly banning their sale of quote/unquote assault weapons which they actually did five years ago and now they're just reopen but before we get to any of that I first want to talk a little bit about more facts that are now coming out about the shooting so every day there are more facts that are coming out about the shooting now we sort of know what we know at this point until a full investigation is undergone but here's a fact that should matter to you when it comes to how Americans feel about what happened in parkland and who they blame about what

that they opted for stricter gun control 40 percent say more action is needed to treat mental health issues only 50 percent of Democrats actually said that a lack of gun control was the real problem here all of it just to say whenever you see polls are some polls out today suggesting that even among Republicans support for gun control is rising you need to take all of that with a grain of salt because that's like asking Americans as I've said in the past it's like asking Americans are you for Less government spending the answer is always yes but then you say okay what do you want to see cut and suddenly Americans run for the hills well the same thing is true with regard to gun control people say are you for more gun control most people go yeah sounds good why not keeps bad at the hands of bad people and then when you say okay well that's gonna mean we're after gonna ban all the rifles then all the Americans say well no we're not gonna do that then the poll suddenly shift so specifics are very different from general propositions that are put forward in these polling numbers all of which goes to show you that the media's attempt to paint this as the the shifting points on gun control it's just not true it's just not correct and the fact is that even Democrats are split on this they don't want to talk about it but they are then that news is obvious since The Huffington Post reported yesterday morning after the Las Vegas Massacre the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is regional press secretary Evan Lucas key actually wrote to candidates in the Northeast not to politicize the shooting he wrote quote teams last night's shooting will dominate the news today and will garner serious coverage the rest of the week you and your candidate will be understandably outraged and upset as will your community however do not politicize it today now the Caspi was right politicizing shootings in the aftermath shootings bad form and it's gotten even worse over the past week and a half and all the media reported this is just a grassroots movement that was happening on gun control and now it turns out that the so-called marked for our lives that's happening in Washington DC on March 24th at which some of the student witnesses and student survivors at Parkland are going to be the featured speakers that this is now being backed by Planned Parenthood it's being backed by black lives matter it's being backed by moveon.org it's being backed by every town for gun safety so all of these organized leftist movements are now getting behind these kids and astroturfing what is going to be very large March in Washington DC that results in virtually nothing and the reason that's gonna result in virtually nothing is again because the American people do not support this the American people look at what happened in parkland and what they see is a failure of law enforcement which is why yesterday when North Texas sheriff put out a notice that got him wide acclaim he the Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphy told his deputies quote with the recent tragedy in Florida I wanted to make my clear my policy on responding to an active shooter all commissioned deputies if you respond to an active shooter you are expected to take immediate action we do not stage and wait for SWAT we do not cover in a parking lot we do not wait for another agency we go in and do our duty we go in to engage and stop the shooter and save lives if for any reason you feel you cannot follow this directive please inform your supervisor and we will work to get you reassigned okay this is the most Americans feel about what the authorities ought to be doing even though the left wants to suggest that this was not a failure of authority whoever would prefer to jump into the debate on this on this moralistic level the left would prefer to suggest that there's a moral failure failure that's taking part on the place of those who do not support widespread gun control and that of course is not true Marco Rubio is one of the people who's been hit hardest from that senator Rubio from Florida you remember he was at that Town Hall two minutes hate on CNN and he was shellacked by a bunch of the students one of the students even comparing him to the mass shooter himself Rubio put out a tweet today that I think sums up the state of our gun control debate he said quote the debate after Parkland reminds us we the people don't really like each other very much we smear those who refused to agree with us we claim a judeo-christian heritage but celebrate arrogance and boasting and worst of all we have been infected the next generation with the same disease now he's getting ratioed are there a bunch of people on the Left who didn't like that he said this their brunch people who thought was just terrible that he would say something like this but he is 100% correct the fact is that the left has turned this into a referendum on the moral character of people who disagree with them and most Americans are not up for that most Americans are not interested in castigating their fellow Americans as murderers and murderers supporters which is why it's really fascinating there been a bunch of corporations that have disassociated from the NRA over the last week there is a poll out today from morning consult that showed every single corporation every single corporation that disassociated from the NRA in the aftermath of this gun control debate has been losing losing public support because they'll gain four or five points in public support from Democrats but lose 60% of public support from Republicans who feel like they're under attack and the reason Republicans feel like they're under attack is because they are under attack okay the left they say they're not for removing second Amendment rights they only want rational reasonable gun controls that's just not true they want to remove semi-automatic weapons from every person in the United States if they could have their way that is the end goal they won't be honest about it many members of the left but this is actually what they want and you can see it in the arguments that they're making so today the New York Times has a full piece about how the ar-15 is essentially military technology in the hands of civilians well that's true of any semi-automatic rifle they say well look at the ar-15 look at its muzzle velocity it has 3,000 feet per second muzzle velocity this is true of any two to three or 5.56 millimeter ammo firing rifle the muzzle velocity on those rifles is very high it always has been it will continue to be the notion that it's just military technology in the hands of civilians again every rifle then his military technology in the hands of civilians because every rifle was at some point military technology in the hands of civilians even bolt-action rifles were military technology in the hands of civilians this argument is akin to saying that the engine in your car is just like the engines in the cars of people in the military okay that's true but it doesn't take you very far and when people on the left rip on the ar-15 and suggest the ar-15 is the root of all evil this just demonstrates complete lack of gun knowledge there are a thousand types of the ar-15 there are many many different types of semi-automatic rifle that fire at similar velocity with the similar callable with similar similar caliber ammunition banning the ar-15 or the branded ar-15 would do nothing to stop the spread of rifles and it would do nothing to stop the the actual problem of school shootings by the way there's a study out today showing that school students have actually been declining in recent years not increasing declining we're not allowed to talk about these statistics of course because to do so is seen as somehow undermining the case in favor of pushing against school shootings but the reality is that just as gun violence in the United States has declined markedly from its highs in 1992-1993 school shootings have been declining in recent years pretty rapidly that doesn't mean that what happened in parkland isn't tragic and horrible and an active evil it does mean that we ought to take a look at the measures that we are purporting to push and compare those to the rights that we are attempting to infringe and what rights are we in tempting to infringe well the answer is all semi-automatic rifles so I remember made this case on MSNBC he's given a lot of credit for the left from this because I remember is a lawyer but he does really bad legal analysis here and I will explain why he explains the Second Amendment and his view does not protect a ar-15s his logic here makes no sense the Second Amendment does not apply to ar-15 it does not apply to assault-style weapons it never has Congress may legally ban those weapons without touching the Second Amendment that's a legal fact but it's hard for me then that is not a legal fact that is not a legal fact okay what he says there if you go back to the screen where he puts up some text on the screen the screen that he says there well what he says that the Supreme Court has never ruled that ar-fifteens are protected by the Second Amendment well that does not mean that there is no right to an ar-15 the Supreme Court has never actually ruled on whether twitter is protected by the First Amendment because that's never come up before of the Supreme Court the Supreme Court rejects certiorari on cases all the time doesn't mean that the right doesn't exist case is legally illiterate I'll explain why it's even more legally illiterate in just a second first I want to say thank you to our sponsors over at policy genius so if you've got a car you have

insurance policy go to policy genius.com check it out policy genius.com again the best way to shop for life insurance okay so Melbourne makes the case it makes this argument that because the Supreme Court has rejected certiorari certiorari is an appeal so the way it works is that you have a case it goes to a district court judge that is then appealed up to a circuit court judge who goes to the circuit court of appeals and then finally it's appealed all the way up to the Supreme Court what is sense at the Supreme Court is something called a writ of certiorari which is essentially a petition asking that the Supreme Court take up the case now Supreme Court will reject writs of certiorari for a variety of reasons some of those reasons include the fact they agree with the the Court of Appeals sometimes they say the case isn't right because it's very common claim that a case has not actually reap right has not reached ripeness because there are a bunch of other circuit courts they have not ruled on the case there are cases where they say that it's not just an issue of law they want to take up there are million reasons to reject it to reject writs and certiorari and it is also true that none of the cases that have been brought before the Supreme Court specifically deal with ar-15s because there's not a state in the country that has attempted to actually ban ar15 even in California there's only recently in attempt to quasi ban ar-15s but even that ban is not supremely clear and certainly confiscation of ar-15s has never been tried and if it were to go up to the Supreme Court there's a very good shot that it would be shot down but Mel Birsa jests and this is actually a really dangerous constitutional point that Melbourne is making because it essentially says that if the Supreme Court has not ruled on an issue you don't have a right to it so if the Supreme Court hasn't ruled on whether twitter is protected free speech then that means that you don't have a right to it now you see the Melbourne would never agree to the same logic with regard to say same-sex marriage before oberst all right so before a burst fell the Supreme Court rejected same-sex marriage cases over and over and over rejected a bunch of writs of certiorari and what re Melbourne have said there is no right to same-sex marriage oh that's I know of course he wouldn't have said that he would have said in my view there's a right to same-sex marriage it's inherent in the text of the Constitution and just because the Supreme Court has not accepted the case yet doesn't mean the right doesn't exist in fact the reality is that under the 9th and 10th amendments the Constitution explicitly states that rights that are not overtly stated in the Constitution of the United States itself are still rights that are held by the people in other words the Bill of Rights is not meant to be a comprehensive Charter of Rights it's meant to point out some of the most specific rights that it wants protected from the federal government but that does not mean that there are other rights that don't exist all other rights don't exist beyond which the second amendment is pretty clear about what it means when it says a well-regulated militia being necessary to the preservation of a free State the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed it's specifically talking about civilians having access to guns that they can then use when they go into the militia at the time these were military light weapons right I mean these were rifles these were muskets and that same principle carries forward so what Melbourne is saying here makes no sense on a legal level but here's the more important point when I remember once again an ar-15 when the New York Times points out the ar-15 that means they want to ban every semi-automatic rifle in the United States because there's no serious distinction between a Bushmaster two to three and an ar-15 there is no significant distinction between between you know very Springfield rifle and an ar-15 you know there are a thousand types of rifle all of which fired the same sort of caliber ammunition and just because some look scarier than others doesn't mean that they are less scary than others which is why when you take a course in guns the very first thing they say is that of course you don't fire it anywhere near a person of course you don't fire it it's something you're not willing to destroy rifles are meant to do damage rifles are meant to kill things rifles are meant to destroy things they're meant to kill people presumably people who are bad who come into your home but a rifle as a tool of killing that does not mean that a rifle itself is so inherently dangerous that we have to be on all of them this one's one correlation the left attempts to draw between the number of guns in a particular society and the level of murder in particular society just does not hold that's particularly true for rifles the more people are killed by hands in fists every year in the United States that are killed by rifles in the United States and gun ownership alone by civilian population generally is not a good proxy for crime rate gun ownership rates in places like Vermont are extraordinarily high come on has an extraordinarily low crime rate the same thing is true in New Hampshire and if you go to other states some some places Louisiana there's very high gun ownership rate there's very high crime rate now important to note most of that crime is not taking place in the boonies most of that crime is taking place in the major cities most of which have actual gun control regulations on the books and most of which are governed by Democrats all of which is to say that the the simplistic attempts to draw a point of concurrence between a cross point of data between gun ownership and and murder that doesn't really hold it doesn't really hold doesn't even hold in Europe by the way where Norway has many more guns per civilian than Britain does and Britain has a has twice as bad a murder rate so these these things just the statistics just do not hold for any of this now in a second I'm going to show you how it is that there are so many folks on the Left who ignore all of this in favor of the virtually signaling and that begins of course with our late night house now one of the great you since I think one of the things that's helping to destroy comedy in the country is the feeling that there are certain areas of American life that used to be off-limits for politics where we didn't feel like we were gonna be assaulted based on our politics when we turned on our TV and we watched Johnny Carson Johnny Carson was studiously anti political meaning that he was a Democrat apparently he was not a Reagan fan although he got to know Reagan and ended up liking him Johnny Carson was a Democrat but you wouldn't know that from watching Johnny Carson Jay Leno was a sort of halfway Republican you wouldn't know that from watching him because Jay Leno was studiously non-political now all of our late-night host have basically become political hacks and you can see that at work so last night Colbert Kimmel Fallon all of them are ardent leftist and all of them have decided when they need to go balls to the wall in pushing for gun control so here here's a mash-up of Colbert and Kimmel and Fallon here hear them talking about Trump's gun proposals with the Olympics over 90 countries have departed South Korea yep 90 groups waving goodbye or as the NRA calls those sponsors although gun owners if you go into almost any business and show them your gun you get stuff for free it's really here in reality there was an armed sheriff's deputy on site and it made no difference but Trump even has an explanation for that the reason a teacher with a handgun would be able to neutralize a shooter with an automatic weapon is because the teachers love the kids more see this is what happens when we elect a president who thought paul blart mall cop was a documentary it would be ridiculous coming from anyone but especially from Trump he's gonna run in yo when Trump ran for president that was the first time he ran in his entire life okay so all the late night hosts universally talking about how stupid it is to talk about why good people with guns can stop bad people with guns of course this is idiocy Kimmel's point particularly is incredibly stupid first of all he says that the shooter had an automatic weapon the shooter did not have an automatic weapon people on the Left who are talking about this stuff should at least learn basic terminology so they don't sound so they don't sound like complete morons but they're not bothering to do that and it's evident and all of this is really quite terrible for the level of political discourse in the country because when you have laughing audiences scoffing at the idea that an armed teacher can save anyone then anyway and you suggest that maybe we ought to arm more security guards in schools and Jimmy Kimmel just laugh that off by suggesting that an armed security guards did nothing at this school even though there are many schools all over the country our armed security guards everyday are stopping people with weapons like legitimately there there's armed security guards at I think it's over fifty percent of schools have some form of armed security and those armed security guards metal detectors there are a lot of weapons that are stopped every year going through those those metal detectors apparently Jimmy Kimmel opposes those as well simply because he thinks that a generalized regime of gun control is better and then he and Colbert and Fallon all of them suggest that if you oppose their agenda which they've not made clear they haven't exactly said what they want other than mass banning of guns which is never going to happen there are 300 million weapons in the country and a hundred million rifles when you say it when they suggest that if you oppose them this means that you are a bad person and what's amazing is that they've felt and they'll blowback in the ratings now part of this I think is the universality of leftist feeling in late-night means that you have no alternative nobody gonna switch from Kimmel to Fallon so you can hear the same gun control messaging but part of it is also that the ratings are so far down on all of these shows overall that the audience is fragmented okay Jimmy Kimmel's ratings are not anything like what Johnny Carson's ratings used to be because there are lots of networks very few people are actually watching these late-night shows in comparison to the number of people who are watching late-night shows before so they're really not broadcast their narrow cast even though they're on the networks and so Jimmy Kimmel can say in full honesty that there's no way to to go too far in bashing and president Trump for the GOP not at all I don't think you can go too far I think that you know I'm still doing a comedy show and I need to be funny and entertain my audience but I also think that we've matured enough to the point where we can accept late-night talk-show host speaking about a serious subject and I think that it's almost necessary now okay it's almost necessary now for late-night host to talk about political subjects well actually what Jimmy Kimmel has shown is it's necessary for our late-night host to study the subjects before they talk about them because literally every day he says something that's stupid about politics including in that clip a very short clip him talking about automatic weapons being used in the shooting which of course they were not and it's not just Jimmy Kimmel unfortunately the entire media have shown themselves virtually the entire media themselves to be activists on gun control issues rather than objective journalists okay so today's examples come courtesy of CNN so CNN has been the worst on this it's so funny they're all these folks in the media who are constantly complaining that people like President Trump are ripping on the media that people like me are ripping on the media how dare we rip on the media you know that or that Trump more importantly Trump rips on the media and therefore Americans don't like the media no as I said in my speech at CPAC we didn't like you before we had serious problems with the media before because we feel like you're lying to us when you claim that you're objective when you are clearly not objective when you are clearly not objective okay now as an example of CNN not being objective today Dick's Sporting Goods announced that they were going to immediately halt sales of assault-style rifles and high-capacity magazines and all of their stores including their field and stream stores I guess they have these things and banned the sales of all guns to anyone under 21 now after Sandy Hook they'd already stopped the sale of assault-style weapons which is a meaningless term meaning essentially rifles that look scary they've done that after Sandy Hook they're reiterating that today and extending it to a few more of their stores the chairman and CEO said on Good Morning America when we saw what the kids were going through and the grief of the parents and the kids who were killed in parkland we felt we needed to do something in other words there's an emotional appeal they responded to the emotional appeal now who cares I mean the reality is who cares because most people who are buying some is exporting goods we're not actually buying assault-style rifles from Dick's Sporting Goods they haven't been able to for years now if they want to raise their age of buying 221 that's fine it just means the person who's 19 and wants to buy a handgun is simply gonna walk across the street to the local gun store and buy a handgun in accordance with law but this is widely celebrated in the media stacks that we support and respect the Second Amendment we recognize and appreciate the vast majority of gun owners in the country are responsible law-abiding citizens but we have to help solve the problem that's in front of us gun violence is an epidemic that's taking the lives of too many people including the brightest hope for the future of America our kids well if you believe that but if you believe that then why not just stop selling all guns if you believe that the the problem in front of us is that all guns are the threat and that the sale of legal weapons to law-abiding citizens is the real threat then maybe should stop selling all guns in fact now stack revealed that the shooter in this case had purchased a shotgun at a at a store at a dict store within the past four months okay so is anything that they're doing would apparently I guess you know their new rules that they won't sell to anybody under 21 would have stopped him from getting a gun at a dick store okay so he waits until these 21 of them buys a gun into Dick's store like if they actually think the shotgun is the threat not the person then they should be banning the sale of all guns and they should just stop selling guns to exporting goods and I'm amazed sort of that the media have fallen for this PR trap from Dick's but this is what they have fallen for the anchors over at CNN have made mockeries of themselves as so as quote unquote objective journalist I mean true mockeries of themselves so Erin Burnett right is is now she's supposed to be objective journalist right she is she's an anchor she's not a she's not an opinion host she tweeted this out quote politicians mail a purge to stand up to the NRA but Dick's Sporting Goods USA's largest sporting goods retailer will stop selling assault-style weapons and raise minimum age for all gun sales to twenty one is that journalism or is that advocacy obviously that's advocacy Chris Cuomo had on the CEO and and the big headline in the back said Dick's takes a stand wow that's not advocacy at all that's journalism dicks takes a stand now the NRA is also taking a stand it's just that Chris Cuomo doesn't like that stance oh you'd never have on Dana lash and then the background say NRA takes a stand of course not because they're only certain stands that CNN actually likes and CNN has been doing this for weeks now from the awful town-hall event to a watching basic reporting about weapons there was a CNN host yesterday who who talked about a full semi-automatic which doesn't even make any sense what the hell is a full semi-automatic supposed to mean now something out of mattress means you pull the trigger once in a bullet comes out okay but it's a full semi-automatic and then there's a really funny video of him trying to fire a trying to fire a semi-automatic weapon and the gun jumping in his hands because he doesn't know how to fire a weapon does not up locking into his shoulder and my wife fires an AR better than he fires an AR and then you know botching basic facts about the weapons making allowing these students to go on national television and make unquestioned about the evils of the people with whom they are talking I make an unquestioning about Marco Rubio being an evil person and then we're supposed to take CNN seriously okay here's a CNN expert yesterday saying that women can't carry guns because they wear dresses like this is a real thing that they said one of the things that people don't talk about a lot of these school Sandy Hook at an all-female faculty from principal to teachers and for a woman where are you gonna hide that gun during the day you can't put it your desk drawer somebody might steal it you can't get to it you're not gonna have it in a safe in the principal's office you can't get to it on your person if you wear a dress if you were a skirt are you gonna have to wear a jacket every day with a belt and a holster the way a detective you know on duty would do it's it's not a real practical solution even for a variety of reasons okay look how stupid this anchor is where's the anchor I don't even know who that anchor is she's sitting there nodding through this whole thing women wear pants I mean I hate to break it to CNN but you know outside of hijab land you know outside of like places where women are forced to wear skirts you know I'm forced to wear dresses all over the world I'm not talking to all Muslim communities are lots of Muslim women who are pants outside of places where women are forced to do that in a free society like the United States lots of
