tv   The Van Jones Show  CNN  February 25, 2018 2:00am-3:00am PST

2:00 am
miscarriages of justice, i can't correct. i can only tell you that personally, i was involved in this case from the very beginning. and personally, believe that kevin cooper should die. good evening. i'm van jones. this is "the van jones show." i want to welcome you. we have so much to talk about tonight including guns in america. the nation is still just reeling from this senseless massacre. 17 people high school teachers, students in florida. our hearts were just shattered by the students who died, but, luckily, we still have some hope coming from the students that lived. that is so important.
2:01 am
these shootings have just become all too common. on this show later, we'll hear from some of the survivors of the october 2017th ma mass shoo in las vegas. we have van in the van, we have two mothers who lived through that massacre. the owner of the gun store who sold the weapons to the sniper who killed. we need hope and inspiration. tonight we'll get a voice of hope. a guy i call a super dad, super human being, nba super star steph curry. we'll hear from steph curry tonight. we need to hear from him. we need that kind of inspiration because even while we're mourning the victims of this gun violence, we have to remember something. breakdowns. you know, even terrible breakdowns can lead to breakthroughs. you know that just looking at your own life. we take the bad and we just try
2:02 am
to find some way to make something good out of it. that's what we do. that's what those students who live through that horror are trying to do by standing up for their rights. i'm so proud of them. unfortunately y have to say this. i don't want to say it, but i have to say it. our president has not fully been able to arise to the occasion. he said he's willing to raise the age for some gun purchases. i love that. before he did that, he went on this fully fledged twitter tirade. even writing that the kids might not have died if the fbi were not investigating him. now, that's just ridiculous. first of all, the fbi has thousands and thousands of people working. this one investigation had nothing to do with that mistake that they made. but, more importantly, trying to score political points against his own enemies and then making the tragedy all about his own problems. while he's basically standing over the body of the dead children.
2:03 am
that's just beneath contempt. i wish he would stop doing things like that. this week the resiliency and came from the high school students. they are fighting for their right to even have a future. i'm betting on them. young people have changed america in the past and won. february 1st, 1960, had a very small handful of black students who conducted a single sit in and it broke the color barrier and launched a movement that changed america and ended segregati segregation. and my uncle, chester arthur kirendal was a college student at that time. and he got arrested in those protests. my godmothers helped to lead that movement. here we are every color in the rainbow in many ways. we are living in a world that young students dreamed of and
2:04 am
fought for. so, that's the hope we've got. now, no young person has ever fought by themselves. the grown folks always helping and today's students are the same way. they have the aid and support of the organizers of the women's march, which was one of the biggest demonstrations in u.s. history, maybe in world history. and the energy that the women's march unleashed actually has helped to fuel the me too movement and times up movement. it's still changing america today. so if anybody knows how to take a moment and turn it into a movement, it's the women who led that march. so, guess what. they are here tonight. i want you to welcome two of the co-founders of the women's march tamika mallory. welcome to "the van jones show" in the house.
2:05 am
my goodness. we have two legends in the house. i am so glad to know that the young people are going to have the support of folks like you. why do you think it's important as leaders of a women's movement to help this movement against gun violence? >> we've seen the type of support that is needed to create a mass mobilization and, also, all the challenges that can come along the way. and we remember what it was like to be questioned as women. why you. why should you be leading this? we want tasay to the youth of america that rising up in numbers too big to ignore. we support you and we stand with you in this movement. >> what did you guys learn? you guys came out of no where. you weren't the established organizations and you made this massive thing. what did you learn that these
2:06 am
young people should keep in mind? >> i think it's important what bob said. first of all, a continuation of movement. the young people are not out there alone. that we are there to support them because there will be some tough moments. of course , it's exciting they'e going to do a walkout. but what do you do after the walkout to keep this moment going? >> people may not know all the details. >> our young people are leading a walkout for 17 minutes on march 14th, really, to signify the 17 lives that were lost in parkland, florida. and they're going to be walking out of school with administrators, their principals and others supporting their parents, meeting them. walking out of schools and saying they want to see congress do something about gun control and there is a particular list of demands that people can find on the women's march website. >> in moving you had to figure out how to walk across all different lines of race and class and religion, et cetera.
2:07 am
if these young people win, they have to do the same thing. what did you learn about working across lines of difference that the young people should keep in mind? >> i'm so glad you asked that. it has been frustrating watching this story line of white kids leading this conversation around gun violence. we want all kids to be protected and i'm so happy to see these young people. but 17 children in florida cannot erase 17 children in chicago or new orleans or brooklyn. there has to be a conversation happening at the same time about gun violence in all of its forms and urban communities have been suffering with this issue for a long time. so, what we did with the women's march was clearly important and working together with all types of people and looking at issues from several prisms and wae hope this gun violence movement does the same thing. mass shootings and street shootings. >> the movement that you are a part of and helped to start, you know, i've known you for most of
2:08 am
the 20 years and now you've had enough success and there's actually some pushbacks and blow back. you had the president of the united states out there concerned about the accused abuser that was on his staff sticking up for due process rights all of a sudden. did you take president trump seriously when he was raising the due process concerns. >> due process, right. that's the joke. you know, he also supported roy moore in alabama. we know the history of donald trump is supporting the wrong side of issues. and i think for us to focus on donald trump is for us to miss the mark. we have to educate our youth as we're doing with this gun violence preveng motion on whats me too movement and protecting all people and particularly women. we want to outorganize donald trump and move him out of office and out of the public discourse.
2:09 am
i think the media focuses on him too much. he's just not really healthy for us to digest on a consistent basis. >> you mention out organizing and that kind of thing. i was pleasantly surprised that you are way ahead of the curve. when the anniversary time came for the march, i am expecting to get a ticket to go to washington, d.c. we' where did you go for the anniversary of the march? it wasn't d.c. at all. >> we are not interested in had past. we went to las vegas to launch power to the polls. our 2018 initiative around the mid-term elections. and in a similar way to all our organizing, it is not enough to show up for a march. we have to take the collective power that we have on the streets and transform it into collective political power and have our voices heard at the polls. >> talk about the election. we will have left versus right
2:10 am
and republican versus democrat. some conservative women say we don't have a place in the women's march movement. what do you say to that? >> it depends on how you feel. the women's march is open for everyone. trust me, as a black woman within this space i know how it feels not to be included. but we don't take that for an answer. we show up and say we're going to be included. our issues are going to be part of the platform and all about the people really working with us. it's basically what folks want is for us to change our platform of being pro-choice. of being really intentional about diversity and inclusion. they want us to change that in order to make them feel comfortable. if you know us, that's not going to happen. >> not likely to happen. >> look, you are -- yeah. you know, we appreciate you guys for being on the front lines, so innovative,empthetic i want
2:11 am
to thank both of you for being here. nba champ stephan curry. we'll get his perspective on the latest school shooting. everybody has a lot of opinions about that topic. as we go to this break, here's what some of you had to say about it. >> it's not assault weapons and bump stocks the problem in america. we don't have a gun problem in america. >> to know that there are people who still defend current gun laws as they are tearing our country apart because they love a gun more than they love a life. sometimes, bipolar i disorder can make you feel unstoppable. but mania, such as unusual changes in your mood, activity or energy levels, can leave you on shaky ground. help take control by asking about your treatment options. vraylar is approved for the acute treatment of manic or mixed episodes of bipolar i disorder in adults.
2:12 am
clinical studies showed that vraylar reduced overall manic symptoms. vraylar should not be used in elderly patients with dementia due to increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor about fever, stiff muscles, or confusion, which may mean a life-threatening reaction, or uncontrollable muscle movements, which may be permanent. side effects may not appear for several weeks. high cholesterol and weight gain; high blood sugar, which can lead to coma or death; decreased white blood cells, which can be fatal; dizziness upon standing; falls; seizures; impaired judgment; heat sensitivity; and trouble swallowing may occur. you're more than just your bipolar i. ask your doctor about vraylar.
2:13 am
2:14 am
welcome back to "the van jones show." next week nba champions golden state warriors are headed to washington, d.c. but they are skipping the ceremonial visit to the white house. technically they got disinvited. you may remember at the height
2:15 am
of the hurricane crisis in puerto rico, president trump picked a twitter fight with warriors' star steph curry, somebody i said at the time was not the best target. apparently he didn't get the memo that dads in america created steph curry in a lab so our kids would have somebody to look up to. steph curry is such an inspiration. using his money and fame for good. i had a chance to sit down with him about his family, politics and, of course, basketball. take a look. >> well, first of all, i'm so glad that you're here. i'm especially glad because now my sons might watch my show. whatever it takes, right? i can't tell you how much i admire you. you are somebody who was able to hold on to your dream to be great when not everybody believed in that dream. as a dad and as a father, you're at a different level and i think
2:16 am
you represent a lot of hope. right now people don't have a lot of hope. just had this shooting recently. how does it strike you. you see these kind of tragedies and people being shot. >> it's tough to kind of digest. obviously, as a parent, thinking about the world that you want your kids to grow up in and try to protect them at all costs. that hits home and, you obvio obviously feel for families that were affected and a lot that has been said about change that needs to happen and hopefully that conversation goes somewhere and actually make an impact for that next generation to hopefully have a better world to live in. but, for me, like you said, my job as a parent, with my wife, hopefully we have that presence with our daughters and to lay that foundation so they can
2:17 am
spread pause tivositivity in th. >> riley has done that already. >> she's just like my wife as a girl. she knows how to fill a room. she walks in and everybody just smiles and is having a good time and has that connection with her. >> you have two kids now. you have a third coming. talk to us about this new curry on the way. >> it's exciting. like you said, we have a 5-year-old and 2 1/2-year-old and hopefully a healthy baby coming in july. >> it's going to be rough. >> my wife and i were talking about playing defense. >> can't go man-man any more. in this me too movement. you are surrounded. you have two daughters and your wife is like a actor, cover model, entrepreneur. what do men need to learn now to
2:18 am
be able to be the kind of husbands, the kind of partners and the kind of dads of these amazing women today? >> i think just the appreciation. their value across the board. my wife is amazingly talented. she's smart. she's confident. she keeps me in check. she makes me better every single day. >> how? >> she gives me the right perspective about life. she challenges me. i have a lot of potential to have a lot of yes people around and to kind of flow through life. nobody really giving me those words of wisdom that i needed to hear. >> how does she bring it to you? >> straight up. and i appreciate that about her. appreciate that about her for sure. >> that's great. you said you're on this platform for a reason. talk more about that. you have a deep faith. what does your faith tell you
2:19 am
about why you have this platform? >> it's not about me. not about shining the light on myself. there's something bigger and as long as i keep that as my motivation rbs th motivation, that's why i work so hard and do what i do. i can actually make some change, i guess, and leave the people that laid eyes on me on the court, in the locker room and daily life in a better place because of what i am able to do. >> this is weird, though. i mean, you are in a league that is famous for trash talking. for the bragadocious and we have some of that in the white house. a leadership model in the white house that is very put down the other person. you're a world class leader. why does your leadership mot ss work? >> i think being authentic.
2:20 am
you're able to relate to a lot of different people because you're able to appreciate what they bring to the table. for me there's 15 other guys on my team and we all come from different backgrounds. we all have different stories on how we got to the nba. but for me as a leader, i value what each person is and what each person brings to the table. i think that's something the white house could maybe change a little bit and kind of adopt. it's just everybody has a reason that they're here and has a value and has a worth and to celebrate that. and i think that's important. that's what we do on our team and that's why we bonded and connected and that's why we'll continue to grow. >> it's obvious when you're out there you're making everybody better out there and excited about everybody's success. and yet you got into conflict with the president. the president of the united states tweeted about you. how does that feel? >> it was surreal at the
2:21 am
beginning. for a lot of different reasons. i think going into that particular day right before our training camp started and, obviously a lot of talk after we won the championship last year if you go to the white house or not and us as a team. we have a process of how we come to that decision. obviously, guys had different ideas or beliefs and have a meeting that day to talk about as a group. >> not just about stephen curry going to the white house or as a group. before we had an opportunity i voiced my side of the argument. >> i don't think i should go y don't want to go. >> he kind of took that power away from us and didn't allow us to have that process. and the president after he suggested it -- obviously, i
2:22 am
think that was a rallying point. not just for our team, but the entire nba and the sports world in general. there was so much support from all type of nba players and from fans. and, you know, kind of just backing us and understanding that, yes, going to the white house is definitely a huge honor. we've been before when president obama was there, but, you know, it's more if you're not going to celebrate the collective and, you know, the majority of americans that live in this country and that watch us play and the fact that sports rallies these different types of people and backgrounds together to celebrate a game and that's why we're going to the white house to celebrate that accomplish. i didn't want to go. and i think we could definitely use our time better when we go to d.c. during the season. >> so, you're going to d.c., not going to the white house. what are you going to do when you get to d.c.? >> we're going tareao reach out the youth and celebrate black
2:23 am
history. it's in february and that is what this month is about and to hopefully present a new experience for some youth that are in the d.c. area that might not, you know, have that opportunity otherwise. so, we're going to have a direct impact on hopefully the next generation while we're there. that's really positive. >> i think people forget is not just senators and communities that have been there for decades that are struggling and need help and inspiration. you know, one of the things that happened in that whole conflict, you know, you're not the trash talker and the guy from under armour said trump is an asset and you said, yeah -- for a nontrash talker. >> it was more so opportunity to have a little wittiness with it and hopefully drop the message that we were rolling with. >> now, your mama, she said,
2:24 am
your mama said, that's a little bit too close, soon. >> i guess you call a little out of character, but she was quick to call me out on it. i have strong women around me all the way around. i can't stray too far. >> is there a danger -- it wasn't just you. lebron james called the president -- is there a danger that his rhetoric starts to pull all of us down? >> i think that's what we're trying to guard against. i think that's what -- the positive that came out of that was, you know, the words that he was using and the kind of rhetoric that he was using was trying to divide and be divisive and create tension in our society. i think it's done the opposite. i think it revealed a lot of things that have been laying in the weeds for a long time and it exposed them, but i think, also, rallied change and more so for us as athletes that have our platform. it's about in any way that we
2:25 am
can continue that conversation. obviously, i don't have all the answers, but as long as these conversations are staying front and center, we're doing our job. and that's what i feel most proud about. >> bad, huh. bad brother. safe to say steph curry is not going to be golfing with president trump any time soon, but he does hang out with president obama. details on that relationship and so much more with steph curry when we get back. i have to tell you something incredible. capital one has partnered with hotels.com to give venture cardholders 10 miles on every dollar they spend at thousands of hotels. all you have to do is pay with this... at hotels.com/venture. 10 miles per dollar? that is incredible. brrrrr. i have the chills. because you're so excited? because ice is cold. and because of all those miles. obviously. what's in your wallet? i'm not sure.
2:26 am
what's in your wallet?
2:27 am
2:28 am
2:29 am
check out more of my interview with steph curry. i don't think people really know all the stuff theyou're doing. if you got out on the basketball court and inspire the world with the excellence you have and you decided to work with another president, president obama on the my brother's keepers stuff. first of all, you're friends with president obama. first of all, you have two of the most beloved, beautiful brothers in the world and y'all are buddies. just that by itself makes sun rise a little higher. what do you do? do you play one-on-one
2:30 am
basketball? >> i saw him at the white house a couple times, played golf a couple times and came through the bay area and we got to sit down and talk and about his foundation and his post-president life and what that means for him. that is still surreal thinking about that. that's pretty cool. >> what is that connection? >> it's empowering. he has an inside look at all the deep-rooted problems in our country and some of the issues that he personally wants to take on, specifically around education. and the work that he's doing with his foundation. i think just the plan that he had and he laid that out for me and ways for me to get involved. the campuses he's building and the different groups and just to know that our president that did so much great work is continuing that and is dedicating his life
2:31 am
to that post-presidency. that's, for me, to get an inside look at what that means and how i can support it any way that i can. it means a lot. >> my brother's keepers about young, mostly men of color, trying to help them to rise. you don't draw your circle there. every time you make a three-pointer, as happy as we are in california, there are people in africa that are happy about your three-pointer. tell the cnn audience about nothing but nets. >> a great initiative that has been formed to eradicate malaria in africa. northwest tanzania at a refugee camp where there is about 10,000 refugees there and saw it first hand how parents there can't protect their kids from the simple things, a mosquito bite, and how many kids have been affected by malaria and how easy it is to prevent it. we have continued to raise awareness and raise money to
2:32 am
send nets to africa. >> why do you do that? you are a global star, do you feel a global responsibility? >> obviously, life is way bigger than basketball and how many points i can score on the court and how many championships i can win. if i can have some impacts off the court and change one person's life, i think that's a success. >> you're in the bay area. silkiconiconicon valley is a st throw from oakland. you're going into silicon valley and trying to change the game there. why is that important to you? these player tech summits. help me understand. that is a different level of the game. >> it is. like i said, last year we had the players' summit where we invited nba players to come to the bay area and fry to bridtry the gap between nba and silicon valley. >> when it comes to role models especially for african-american kids, latina kids maybe a great
2:33 am
athlete, maybe barack obama. that's it. that's like the four models. is technology, can that be like a fifth door where our young people can get excited, get involved, find success? i mean is that a part of why you're interested in opening that up? we had digital divide for a long time. it hasn't been easy for us. >> i think the awareness of what opportunities are in tech. youth don't really know how powerful it is and the skillsets they have. they might have a passion for it. that's something that you can kind of get in early. so, that's powerful just to create that access because even five, ten years ago that wasn't a thought many people had. >> obviously, you're not a politician and you don't know all the answers and you're asking the right questions. how can we be better? we don't have to do that. you're doing it. athletes always haven't felt
2:34 am
comfortable doing that. get the big salary, get the sneaker deal and be quiet. why are you going beyond that? >> i think we can control our own voice. when you talk about social media of the world and your words and actions go a lot further. i think just the athlete in general is less afraid of what the consequences might be or the ramifications of taking a stand. >> why? >> or having a voice. >> you don't like money? you don't like deals? what changed? >> i don't know what changed. you saw what happened with kaepernick and nfl guys and their protests and things like that which i applaud. i don't know. >> you stuck up for kaepernick. one thing to stand for obama. some people stood back from it. you stood with kaepernick. why? >> because he is putting his money where his mouth is and he
2:35 am
actually -- i don't understand how you can fault a guy taking a piece of protest and then on the back end, the million dollar players that he had putting his money where his mouth was and going to communities and making an impact. making a difference. i think, for me to be able to bring some of that money back to the bay area meant a lot. i think in san francisco with the united players initiative that we supported. >> i love my boy rudy. >> that was a no brainer for me. to see a guy who has dedicated his life to making a difference. whether it's accepted or not. i want that. >> you know, i got to ask some basketball questions otherwise my son is going to kill me. so, everything is great in california, everything is great. what if lebron james came to l.a.? >> i would be sleeping fine. obviously, i feel like our team is the team to beat. we have some work to do, but i'm
2:36 am
pretty confident in ourselves. he has, i guess the world, the nba world is his oyster, he can figure out what he wants to do right now. right now we're trying to win championship and it's fun right now. >> you have some feedback around your draft picks for the all-stars. >> i did. >> if you had the chance to draft anybody in nba history, at their height, you know, one, two, three. who would you draft? you're steph curry. you look at the game slightly different. might go with the marquis -- >> shaq first. >> why? >> physical specimen out there. >> dominate. >> just dominate. i've seen it on itv and highlights and saw him play against my dad. obviously, have to throw michael jordan in there. that's a no brainer.
2:37 am
and then i would probably throw wilt chamberlain in there, if i could somehow bring him in his prime to today's game to see how that translated, that would be awesome. >> some surprises. you said something that touched me. you said, in all this noise and chaos and confusion you wrote, it's important for us to be louder than the silence, but quieter than the noise. what did you mean by that? >> there's, obviously, our world is chaotic. there's problems everywhere and there's just negativety and hate. if we want to stand for something, be consistent with that message. raise awareness to the things that need change. and as you talk about all the time and what this show is about and spreading love and positivity and just trying to
2:38 am
make a difference. i think that's what we're all on this earth for. so, that's my job as a basketball player. and i'm trying to do it. >> you're doing a good job. on behalf of every dad on earth, thank you for being the kind of role model we can point our kids to. thank you for doing your homework every night. >> homework, the dishes, all that stuff. >> all that stuff. >> steph curry, appreciate it. >> thank you very much, man. >> i want to thank steph curry. up next, we're going to continue the heated conversation around gun control. this time in las vegas. the scene of one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern u.s. history. i'm getting back in my van and driving around the city with two survivors of that massacre and plus the man who sold the shooter some of his weapons. i'll take you there when we get back. prestige creams not living up to the hype? olay regenerist shatters the competition. big hype. big price. big deal.

when my vehicle i wwas hit by an ied.r in iraq
2:42 am
i looked down and i knew i was out of the fight. but playing for team usa has been a second chance to represent my country. i get to show my children and the world that, yeah, i might have been knocked down, but i'm up, and i'm honored to be able to represent the flag. comcast is grateful to all who have served our country, and we're proud to bring the 2018 olympic and paralympic winter games home to everyone. this week, you know, our hearts and our heads have really been in parkland, florida, but less than six months ago our country witnessed the deadliest single day mass shooting in our history. 58 people killed and more than 500 injured when a gunman opened fire on thousands of concert goers in las vegas. so, i got in my van to talk to the people who were directly impacted by the shooting. just try to learn how the city
2:43 am
is healing and getting their thoughts on the whole political gun fight that is now consuming the country. all right. las vegas. las vegas. see what we can do here. here we go. >> hi. >> welcome, welcome. >> roll that back. that's a classic minivan. old school. >> how are you doing, man . >> i have that. >> one of the most grisly, awful shootings in american history happened right here in this otherwise beautiful city. >> this was the dirt lot. you were at this dirt lot, too.
2:44 am
>> that was the fence. >> so both of you were actually there the night of the shooting, is that right? >> yes. >> yes. >> it was unimaginable. i was watching people just dive over the bars and just the fear in their eyes as they're just hiding. >> i remember sitting there going, when is this going to stop? just the agony when you realize it's not stopping, it's not stopping and this is real now and now i'm part of a mass shooting. i'm not just someone i see on tv any more. this is like my reality now. >> you weren't at the -- you were in town you sell guns and you sell ammunition. and then later on it turns out that the shooter actually bought a couple of his guns from your shop. how did you feel when you learned that? >> you get a little angry. you do the best you can and you do due diligence and follow every law we can follow.
2:45 am
i'm definitely not condoning that wacko, but it is a tool he chose to use that day. not a bomb. >> you were lawfully selling weapons to somebody who then unlawfully shot this whole place up. you were here. you saw the bullets flying. >> yeah. i definitely, i feel like -- like i don't blame him or his shop. it's kind of -- i just have no place in my life for guns. i never -- i don't want to see a gun and i don't want to run from a gun and i don't want to be around a gun. that is just me. >> how old are your kids? >> 3 and 5 my 3-year-old the other day, my husband and i were talking about going to a concert and he goes, mommy, are you going to a shooting concert? for that to be an adjective in his vocabulary. it hits you pretty hard as a mom, i think. that he's 3 and that's his world
2:46 am
now now. >> i'm, obviously, a gun enthusiast and a sport shooter and a hunter and i have reasons why i have what i have and i also believe i don't need a reason to have what i have. but what i do believe is that the system is broken. >> i'm all about our second amendment and i do think that we have laws in place already that aren't being used. why aren't we actually enforcing those laws that we already have in place instead of just trying to get rid of guns. >> we could research it which we're not doing. we don't see it like an epidemic that it is. we're not allowed to. >> david, do you agree that there's an epidemic of gun violence. >> there is no less guns. i had guns in my truck when i was a kid in high school, right. nobody shot up the schools, right. i think we have to look at what the real problem is.
2:47 am
i don't think it's the guns. i think we have to look at maybe some parenting. >> i think at a certain point when it seems like your right to a gun trumps my right of keeping my children alive, there's a problem. >> do you understand that when you ban guns tomorrow or the sale of guns or took my guns away that it doesn't help your child's safety at all because the guns that are in the hands of the wrong people are still out there -- >> for people who are concerned about gun safety, you have to be able to say to pass a law and tomorrow it nothing bad will ever happen, again. what cause has ever been held to that standard? >> it's understandable. but nobody else has come up with something that said this could actually help. >> do you understand why people feel differently say about a gun than they might feel about a knife or a pair of scissors? >> i understand it, but also, same thing, not to sound ince e insensiti
2:48 am
insensitive, ignorant. but you could drive -- >> you could drive this van through something. that happened here on the strip. and guess what we have up everywhere? barricades. to protect people from being -- >> you didn't make the cars go any slower, you changed something here. >> we made a change. i just think that's -- >> not to the car. nobody blamed the car, not once. >> we had a one-time problem. same with the shoe bomb in the airport. we had a one-time thing and we did something with it. we can't even enforce the laws we have. why is that not the biggest problem in america? >> nobody can really sit down and tell me something that this will stop this because of this. >> so, from your point of view, bump stocks are okay, silencers are okay. >> bump stocks have nothing to do with it. bump stock that is making you fire a rifle faster. it's almost silly.
2:49 am
you lose accuracy, right, because you're bouncing all over the place and going crazy. you're not sitting there -- a silencer does not make a gun silent. it makes it okay for your hearing. it lowers the decibels. >> at the end of the day i look around and i get finished being hypnotized by people smart on guns but i still say, other countries don't have this problem. >> maybe it's because they are more in tune with each other. >> i think their societies are better. i lived in europe. >> i think it comes down to parenting. >> only americans have horrible parents? >> no, you look at so many kids that are bullied that do these violent acts whether they kill themselves or they kill other people. >> you mean, no bullies in other countries. >> maybe they teach their kids resiliency. we are a country that is too soft. we want everything perfect. >> you have to say guns are a bit of the problem. that is a part of it. we were shot by a gun. we weren't bow and arrowed at route 91. >> i know.
2:50 am
>> everyone will agree that a gun used in a crime or a gun in the wrong hands is part of the problem, 100%. >> yeah, this is a healing remembrance garden for the 58 victims. >> people talk about vegas strong, you know. you're somebody, you sold weapons, you guys have been on the other end of the -- >> these people still deserve to be here. gun control is one of those issues where it's difficult to find agreement. but one thing all three of those people have in common. they are parents of young kids and they're all doing what they think is right to keep their kids safe. up next, my own messy truth about guns. first, here is more about what you had to say.
2:51 am
>> we need a change. we need amendments. we need some action right now that gets people knowing that their lives are worth more than anything the nra can pay you. >> i think that people are naive to think that those regulations are going to be followed when the ones they have now are not being followed. s, probiotics, and fiber, it could be wearing on you. tell your doctor what you've tried and how long you've been at it. linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children less than six, and it should not be given to children six to less than eighteen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain,
