The NRA is set to sit down with Vice President Biden's task force on gun violence tomorrow after issuing a statement yesterday that they are "sending a Rep. to hear what they have to say."
Sen. Ron Johnson weighs in on President Obama's new gun control initiatives on Starting Point this morning.
"I'm a little concerned they will try and rush this thing through, try and pass legislation out of Washington, D.C. within a month, and I don't think Washington is capable of solving the problem," Johnson explains. "When you take a look at bans, they simply didn't work. We have gun-free school zones, and that's where people go to kill children. So I wish there was some magic wand you could wave, prevent things from happening, but these massacres are perpetrated by sick, demented, and evil individuals."
Johnson also weighs in on the national debt problem and Obama's assertion that he won't negotiate over raising the debt ceiling, saying, "any time the president comes to Congress and asks for additional debt benefit on the backs of our children and grandchildren, we should have the debate. It should go on and on and on until we resolve the issues."
To follow up on Soledad's comment this morning regarding gun control. It is a societal mindset regarding the lack of respect for everything. Take one day and watch what is coming across the televison screen with programming and commercials; the overwhelming mindset is death, destruction, and disrespect. While looking for something to watch I recently saw the beginning of a show where someone took gasoline into a movie theater and set the place on fire killing those inside. Who in their right mind approved that show being aired; bottom line people don't care. Guns are not the issue, the issue is how we think; garbage in, garbage out! Enjoy your show! Joy
