Men are completely support them I do agree. I would like more transparent -- sports he's been involved but oh world -- Chapman. -- -- it -- and -- people taken responsibility. And an obligation to protect their community. In the top more and we can count on the police to do that. And. Well -- know what you're saying about the police but you don't think about it and police. Can't always stop crimes -- They respond to crimes. But that the police can't escort people they they can't be armed escort for people and and if they are honest the citizens who were doing it for the right reason. Well there's nothing wrong with that I don't have a problem with the concept. But what I think about some people who own guns. And how some people who own guns act I have a little concern about some of the people who may wanna do that team -- They might have a -- attitude you can't have that if you do it. No I completely agree but report to question -- which hold you know. Police Stephen Moore are standard in the conference. Inception of the Iraq War.

Are so confident in my ability to keep not so straight when you locker -- the first quarter do you have your gun with you. Usually though don't usually drinking and it. If I'm not drink and how will I will carry. But -- and that do agree with where you comment from we do need transparency on who these people or dislike. You know police officers need to have transparency was -- they are what their -- is -- we need to know who they are we have available to. In the same order in which should know these people that are like that attitude and I liked the concept like you could borrow. Well I liked the concept. What concerns me though is is the attitude of of of who wants to do this because there are there are people who do have vigilante mentality. And that's not the right place for somebody with that with that mentality and I I still have questions about George zero. He may not have and have and done anything wrong according to the court needed -- wrong. But I just have a question about somebody who wants to do that who wants to volunteer to -- to walk around a patrol in neighborhood in an -- maybe I'm being unfairly suspicious. -- What you -- I join our conversation and you have a great weekend. -- here's a text that read so I have a lifelong friend who is gay she dated guys in high school.

Well that's better that's etc. into -- I wonder if people would volunteer to do that. If they didn't have -- -- with the sick with the same people volunteer to just make somebody safe without the gun or is begun something that inspires them to wanna go down and do. I would be happy if fact that they know their opener and a human being going out there and and protecting that other person that they may or may not know. Is is. Why they're going out there I have no no qualms with him carrying guns that they are good ones they're not drinking it bargained for not blocking them and waiting around. -- But I am and I am glad that somebody is out there trying to helps are our -- America.

If he's not guilty but he has been arrested on felony warrant for for stalking and I think this confirms the concern that I had force over the people who might wanna do this again I just had a question that was not against the concept. But I was concerned about some of the people who might volunteer to do. And with the with the same people volunteer to do it if they couldn't have their guns with them. Or is. Basically to say this right. Is having a gun with -- does that. Does that somehow make it fun. Does that make it worthwhile doing. With the same people do if they couldn't have begun with the also we're talking about the Texas Republican Party. They're meeting in in for worse -- their convention yesterday there working on the platform. And they have now embraced in their platform they have embraced. The gay conversion therapy. -- which has been outlawed in New Jersey and California. And there are a lot of mental a mental health officials. And organizations to say it's a very very dangerous. And it is not even possible but yet their people who believe that you can turn. A homosexual into heterosexual and if that's true then scientifically wouldn't be possible to turn a heterosexual. Into homosexual. And what with the straight conversion therapy deal about.

From what you have learned about that day which you've heard about that day what do you but he remember what stands out about it. I guess my only real knowledge of that is what I -- in the World War II museum of what is seen on. A television over the years. I realized it was just a movie but I think Saving Private Ryan did a very good job of showing us as much as a movie can show us. What that was like. People sick in a throwing up ball and then the boats heading into the short many of those many of those Higgins boats were made right here in in the New Orleans area. A World War II vet called mr.

And -- -- could speak German but they're trying to given instructions on but what to do and how to how to take care of himself. And that's the reality of war. And you know we can vPro militaries -- what we need to go take -- in this particular that but that's the reality of war.

Turning people. -- -- -- -- -- I appreciate calling -- show now among other things I were talking about a draft. Of the Texas Republican party's new platform there. Sorting their convention asserted yesterday that meeting at Fort Worth, Texas. -- there including. Support of the gay conversion therapy theory. Actually. Trying to convert homosexuals into into heterosexuals and health organizations find this to be actually absurd in two states. New Jersey and in California have actually pass laws to ban gay conversion therapy now if it is possible to turn somebody who is gay. Into a straight person. Then it would theoretically be possible to turn a straight person into a gay person. If you just gave them the right therapy. Do you think that's possible. And if -- -- -- -- distribute to all of your calls are coming appeared just furiously to a couple aboard these text and here's a text. About the French Quarter minutemen. In my opinion the sort of people who -- want to volunteer for something like that. Are people with a super hero complex. Who -- feel big and bad. Because they can walk around with a gun George Zimmerman is a prime example. And I can bet if they were not allowed to carry a firearm they would not jump at the chance to do it you don't need a gun to protect someone. And if that security guards. On that Seattle campus. See a -- Seattle on college campus is in an example. And I don't know what is this guy I was here of a great example he would -- and that -- spoke with pepper spray pepper sprayed a gunman and apparently prevented a lot more deaths. Then would have would have occurred. This gunman killed one person I think injured three and this hall monitor at Seattle -- Pacific college. He jumped. The gunman and he's being called a hero and -- I think gets something that he deserves to be called. Again we're gonna get back to your calls here in just a moment also more -- Texaco and against Texas we're just a moment ago and this is just this is so typical. Of the -- of people think -- turning off the show not listening. Because. I question the mentality some gun owners. And it's really a shame that some people can't see. That within every group there are fanatics. With in every group. They are people who give the entire group a bad name. I don't have a problem with the concept of the French Quarter minutemen. I think it's really nice of people want to volunteer to help people get around safely. But the other day when I was doing Garland show. Some people criticized me for -- I have concerns about some of the people who would wanna do it. And now we learned that the guy who was trying to organize it has been arrested on a felony charge. A shocking. Now. If the same people who would go down there with their guns if they would be willing to go down there with out their guards. And help people get to their cars. If they would still be willing to do that without the guns but those are good people. But there are unfortunately there are. Gun owners who are fanatics. And they're more interested in walking around with their guns. And they are interested in May be protecting people I'm -- will be right back -- WL.
