Our next guest is been at the convention all day joining us and -- Miller -- -- your opinion editor for The Washington Times and we welcome.
Thank you for having me first give us your reaction what was your impression to the president blaming US for Mexico's gun violence.
It's quite astounding at the president of the United States is -- gas -- To infringe on second amendment rights and he's gonna tell Mexicans.
Humor and that's one of the reasons -- to make them safer.
Since I heard the speech I interviewed governor Rick Perry Texas -- down here -- -- a border state.
About it and he was literally shocked speechless and to -- a few mr.
cover and then he said I an incredulous.
That they present United States -- go to Mexico.
And say this is what we're doing you said.
This is exactly -- reason this president has absolute complete disdain for the constitution and disdain wants to dis -- the public and that's -- Rick Perry said hey as a sidebar read your piece on Rick Perry and he actually doesn't rule out another run for president right.
There is interesting I asked him you know and I thought he would sorted and then -- he said.
I will make a decision by the end of this year 2013.
About 2016 and oppression and he was leaning in that direction interesting -- -- -- back to this.
-- -- -- -- -- Out what do you think of the new president James Porter.
I he's quote of course it's not a battle of gun rights it's it's a culture war I think a lot of people agree with that but is it to think -- -- or did you wanna hear him come out a little stronger in his case.
Ironic profile about about mr.
part of this week because it is interesting that he's taking over the presidency from data -- -- in the present for two years.
Did -- as you know has -- on fox a lot he's very comfortable the media with me with other reporters.
-- -- different type of president he's a little bit last but not come to -- the media publicity shy.
But what did taking an average agrees that he brings to the table in this next two year is he's a lawyer and -- can build a legal team because the NRA has said.
We've almost won the -- on Capitol Hill -- wind you know we don't see anything Morgan happened on Capitol Hill -- keeping up vigilance.
But where this fight goes now it's in the courts in the states to push back on -- loss in New York.
Colorado Maryland Connecticut that are so -- gone clearly unconstitutional.
And somebody like Jim Porter is that that kind of legal brain that can do that for them.
Do you think backs -- -- would be behind -- NRA would be behind.
Senator mansion West Virginia Democrat.
Is now re -- -- the bill to require criminal mental background checks at gun shows and online so again do you think that.
This new president would support the NRA getting behind every introduction of the bill like this.
Actually not -- an -- is concur absolutely opposed to mr.
-- efforts as you know senator to -- is -- you dropped out of them.
And -- in -- defend all the senators Democrats and Republicans who voted for the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
They are not support expanding background -- what they are doing -- they're doing proactively and -- -- -- board members -- talking about in all the meetings are going on this week.
-- they want to get the -- system which is the FBI background checks fix that mental health records are put in them right now they're not.
They also might get prosecutions apps of people who go and buy guns who -- Fallon who are crazy -- obvious things that are banned.
In the bond -- -- station is in prosecuting them their walking out of the store they're not getting caught it's a felony charge.
So those are things that actually could possibly make our country safer protect our children and that's what.
The NRA in its members and its board is are doing in the next few years senator Ted Cruz also speaker the NRA association meeting here on challenging the vice president to debate obviously the vice president say he's gonna going to speaking tour promoting.
Tighter gun control lives.
I think I would do -- can I can really doesn't know what he's talking about I mean Ted Cruz.
You know he was one of the plaintiffs in the Heller case he really knows his stuff and it comes to the Second Amendment mean Joseph -- is telling people issued through a closed door any.
He doesn't have a whole lot of credibility on this -- issues and I don't think he would ever do it with -- senator can do it kind of you know he's the vice president might put him down a notch but.
I mean I think every one that whether it's NRA president or ten -- and the leading Second Amendment Rights people would love to debate.
Mike Bloomberg or -- Joseph Biden because they have the facts on their side unfortunately Joseph Biden Mike Bloomberg won't debate these people -- turned our peer across from the NRA to give back.
-- -- -- you Mike Bloomberg he's got some deep pockets to support his effort we know he spent 600 million of his own dough just on his anti smoking campaign.
You've got the vice president's.
And you've also just got -- it's just such it's such a tall wall if you will.
I'll tell you this Bloomberg money changes the dynamic and why.
Maybe this is the biggest some people say this is the -- fight against gun control in twenty years.
I say it's probably worse than 94 because of a factor and got this billionaire Mike Bloomberg who -- and RA.
A hundred times fall and in cannon well and -- he spent twelve million dollars leading up to the senate race in three weeks.
So they have this dynamic wonder what -- NRA has that Bloomberg doesn't have is five million.
Law -- decent Americans in their organization they have a crack amazing grassroots operation.
They are so fully engaged and I saw that out this week at the meetings all right well said -- -- Miller thank you for joining us.
Thanks for having him and more on it.
