Also joining us former prosecutor Fox News legal costs least we will thank you all for being here.
There are gonna start with your army are you -- are you shocked at the the idea that we see this kind of spike in gun sales.
No not at all I think that when things like this happened people.
Realize sometimes that are vulnerable I think if we look back to the Los Angeles riots we saw that there were people all of a sudden realizing hey.
We're vulnerable and there's danger out there.
And and likely this kind of burst of -- Davis saying it's good to be expected.
But we're seeing this across the country -- we're we're seeing continued.
Sales of particular him -- Yes and.
I'd like to thank Mayor Bloomberg for a helping us out there.
You know every time.
Mandarin -- sort of live in this.
You know traveling envelope of -- body -- -- when they venture out from their green zone's.
There -- lecture us.
You know how we should act and what are what sort of property we should have been what our liberty should be.
You know there -- all sorts of unintended consequences to.
One of them -- tomorrow on the more table here in New York City -- I wanna ask you about the of the band.
And in -- -- Colorado.
Arms not being permitted in the theaters I understand it it what is your reaction to that kind of ban.
Mind it's it's a victim disarmament zone or you -- call -- a criminal empowerment zone the only thing that prevents.
Shootings by criminals he is arms in the hands of trained.
You know intended victims you know the the police cannot be everywhere the police PL were were right on top of this situation.
-- only somewhat similar point -- that I mean.
At what point is shouldn't -- the citizen have the right not to beat.
In a in -- bad guy empowerment zone arm and make himself or herself.
A victim but it each legislature at the state and local level have to make decisions about Second Amendment Rights.
And counter that against public safety and what they decided in -- -- and other places around the country is.
There's much more of an issue -- public safety with few people bringing in handguns.
To -- into a theater now what happened in Arora if there was somebody there that did have a handgun and could be taken -- that shooter.
Then that would have been great but sometimes.
That people you know they get a little crazy they drink too much whatever happens in a theater a bar and that's when you have that that's when you have the problems.
Of bringing in a handgun to a public place like a theater.
Well first on the state law as I understand in Colorado.
Overrides the local ordinances in -- -- which -- to begin work.
Right I am I correct you know you're not -- -- but do you think -- the people are gonna check out the ordinances in this in the local county in and check out the ordinances or what the laws in the state before they go to a theater with their family for a Friday afternoon or evening I don't think so.
I don't think that -- -- well OK I do any any prudent gun owner does that carries it concealed weapon with a permanent.
Yeah -- -- you take they really counterbalance what happens in in one.
One particular area one county vs what happens in the state I know what -- travel of course you're supposed to do that him and and prudent gun owners do do that when they travel from one state to the other do you really think they look from -- accounting a particular state yet.
Absolutely -- this is where state preemption comes into effect where you don't have the patchwork quilts and and this is why we have to have consistency.
That when you say consistency were you surprised there was no one in that theater there's so many people.
That water that -- not a single individual apparently was arm.
I happen to be it have been surprised that.
Yet we we we know that none of the victims happened to be armed what we don't know is if anyone who escaped happen to be our.
Look just because you have a gun doesn't mean that -- trained person with a gun just as much as if I bought a guitar it wouldn't make -- musician.
But all we're saying is.
That if you have a -- -- if you have the training you have a chance whereas begin or you don't have -- they did you just -- somebody bothers me a lot.
I know I've been trained in firearms.
And I insist that.
If that anyone around me.
Shooting is trained in firearms.
I would hate to think that the state of Colorado any other state.
Or any other sanctioning authority would not require an understanding of how to use that weapon because that's what it is it's a weapon.
While -- here here's here's the fact.
My qualified statement was in anticipation that somebody had a gun barrel people in that theater who.
May not have been allowed to have a gun who had -- anyway we saw that there was one on our I'm talking about concealed carry with a prompt appropriate -- let let people are trying -- not.
