Joseph Biden is gonna wrap up these meetings on gun violence today getting set to present the president with recommendations on potential new laws.
The next week is when it's funny to do that then we also in the news this week have the president's cabinet shake -- a -- to talk about.
With Bret Bair from the Fox News Channel the host a special report -- joins us this morning.
A telephone morning Brett.
More you know it's it's interesting how this has got on the gun violence with that vice president of the NRA didn't seem to thrilled by yesterday's meeting but that I was just reading in the Washington Post.
That the White House is at least considering.
In schools which may come as a surprise to some people I'm sure it's not everything the NRA was pushing for but I guess to try to find some compromising what they can actually get through congress and everything else.
Yeah and I think they're also looking a polls you know as a -- yesterday that quinnipiac in Virginia that had a lot of support for.
Armed guards in schools.
Action across the board and when -- broke -- down by party -- -- it was 79%.
Republicans supported it and 58% Democrats.
So that's an NRA idea essentially that that -- broad support and then increasing background checks.
-- just been in the polls so I think.
-- -- -- -- the White House really push to.
Find some kind of common -- ground against the NRA something.
And I think you're also want to see them really take it to the grassroots.
And try to sell it.
In their their -- and sell it out with folks that they've done a number of different issues.
Candidate because after -- I think a lot of people.
We're thinking -- -- assuming that what this would eventually lead to was the reinstatement of the ban on assault weapons that it expired especially.
Vice President Biden was put charged -- -- been one of the guys -- push that through in 1994.
But to go back to your earlier point that doesn't have as much.
Either public or political support doesn't.
It doesn't and it actually may have a bumpy road in congress.
Walt you do you have some public good support from senators who may have voted against it before.
I think you're you're seeing more votes.
Potentially stand up and say this this may not have much up.
Positive impact as.
Once thought at least the push back.
From from gun supporters.
It is is becoming more more prevalent.
-- talk about the shake up in the cabinet the number of different issues have come up this week in regarded that.
In regard to that -- Jack -- with the Treasury Department.
And -- the earlier announcements of John Brennan to the CIA and maybe -- the most controversial B Chuck Hagel.
At at defense will the president have trouble with all three would just be a -- -- -- how the politics shaping up in terms of getting these confirmations.
You know I think they're there may be a bumpy ride for all three.
At least -- Reading the tea leaves of what has been said so far of the three -- is the lobbyists you know the rides.
But you have Sanders talking about Brennan for example.
Putting a hold on that nomination.
Both on the left and the right.
And they -- -- Nation really the linchpin to that.
Getting that through is democratic senator Chuck Schumer.
Will be key to you know how he comes down and and how.
He except sort doesn't accept.
What -- has said that.
And is saying about Israel and and and and his past statements.
Take -- up because.
-- and -- despite the fact that he's a two term Republican senator really any support left doesn't seem like on the Republican.
Side of the -- real quick -- -- -- the CIA.
Directed to be possibly I know the problem on the left is the enhanced interrogation techniques city of what people on the left sees torture and his association with the -- about on the rights of the might -- -- hold on it because what's that what's the issue there.
Well there is number of issues mainly been Ghazi.
And the fact that they don't think that.
They've received a lot of information or cooperation this White House and Arnett they've been promised a lot of a lot of things that.
They haven't been delivered.
A Jack Lew he's gonna do all right after all they.
It really in relation to these guys with a hold him up to.
In relation to them I think you'll do better if he's right politically -- It's all of you know perspective but Jeff Sessions doesn't usually get as -- as as he has been and have recession.
Really been done on it making it tough for Jack -- in this here.
What you just anger a lot of people during those last negotiations to mean.
He definitely turned off Republicans in the -- that negotiation in 2011.
And and frankly in the testimony.
In front of the Senate Budget Committee when he.
Was saying that the president's budget.
Was going to reduce the debt and they be able to look at the American people in the eye and say that the deficit would be going down and that -- national debt would be.
There's an -- -- situation be turned around.
You know session there's a real problem.
