>> sandra good morning indeed they are part president biden on the first lady expected to make multiple stops meeting with multiple victims of tuesday's senseless act. now it deemed the second deadliest school shooting in u.s. history. nineteen children, mostly fourth-graders and two adult teachers were murdered in their own classroom. police say the 18 year old shooter managed to get inside robb elementary school through a door that him and propped open. responding officers got on scene the incident commander decided to wait on a swat team instead of engaging with the gunmen right away. as a result 45 plus minutes a tick to buy. officers in the halls as little kids of flooded 911 with pleas for help. until federal agents arrived breaching the room, shot and killed the tenet government as he emerged from hiding. >> the benefit of hindsight where i am sitting now, of course it was not the right
decision was the wrong decision. there is no excuse for that. the official site the suspects legally purchased the gun and ammunition used at a local store days before. right now they are pouring through social media, searching for a possible motive. this, as a national rifle association is holding its annual conference this weekend down in houston. more than 270 miles from here the nra event was on the calendar prior to this tragedy put a few keynote figures are chosen not to attend. like the texas governor and the texas lieutenant governor. while texas senator ted cruz and former president donald trump were in attendance. meantime the funerals will begin this week here in the community of this small tightknit community i should say. a week that many students had looked forward to because it was
the beginning of their summer vacation. sandra: our hearts are broken all over the country as we continue to see that community grieving. thank you very much reporting from uvalde, texas force for joining us out republican congressman alabama candidate mo brooks a. thank you for joining us on fox news sunday. >> thank you sandra. sandra: you heard a moment ago republican senator of texas and some other republican members of congress had spoken out as well. they are suggesting that perhaps there could be some common ground found here on gun legislation in the wake of this most recent shooting. would you support any changes, sir, to the current gun laws on the books? >> let's, for emphasis, understand the second amendment is about by the second amendment is designed to help ensure that we, the citizens always have the right to take back our government should become dictatorial but that's a great
fear of the founding fathers and quite frankly it is a fear today. and as long as we enjoy on infringes second amendment rights then we don't really have to worry that much about the government ever becoming dictatorial. but the moment we take from our citizenry our ability to take our government back is the moment the ability of dictatorial forces increases to the point were perhaps they will try to implement a dictatorial government at the federal level. so i went to protect the second moment right to bear arms the member and his red of the right to keep and bear arms should not be in france there are proposals out there that guarantee the rights of the american people to freely exercise their second amendment right to bear and keep arms. and i will consider them but if you or talk about depriving people of their second member right to bear arms, first it's unconstitutional. you're going to have to dress out the constitutional member will see how congress and the states react to that kind of measure. but second, sup the proper way
to go if you want to preserve our freedoms by say that but having been the target of an assassination attempt on the baseball field in virginia were one turn 70 odd bullets were fired about a seven minute period of time for it i've been in the middle of one of these things and i was the primary target of the assassin he had my name, my physical description in his pocket the time he launches attack. but we have to do is stop the motivation that causes these criminals, these horrific individuals to do what they do. sandra: i want to dig into that in just a moment pretty did say some things on that this week. but first of these specific gun laws in your state, sir. the minimum age in your state to buy an ar-15 likely when the school shooter used in uvalde is 18 years old. there is no waiting. between the time a firearm is purchased and when it is actually turned over to the buyer. there is no license for the sale of ammunition. gallup research does find a majority of americans, 52% of them are in favor of stricter
gun laws when it comes to the sale of firearms. so, to the majority of americans who feel that way you say what? >> well, i suggest the polling data you have does not really reflect the opinions of the american people. i suspect the people who were polled by way of example were not properly explained but the second limit right to bear arms as pretty as my own history as an example for their many times and i don't to school the shotgun in my car, why? i just got to duck hunting. there other teenagers my age at that point in time that also brought their weapons to school and they had been hunters to for whatever the hunting season was about too. back when i was growing up we did not have these mass killings, okay? they weren't there they did not occur. or if they did i certainly was not cognizant of them on they are very, very, very gross so where i cannot recall a single instance in which one of those things occurred during my youth. today they are much more
commented what is a big difference between what i was growing up in today? the big difference is the decline of the moral values for the decline respect for human life. if we teach proper moral values if we teach respect for human life, if we properly address mental health issues that may somehow or another be associated with all these things, that is the way to fix the problem. sandra: okay. too that point you suggested just that what you believe it's behind the rise of mass shootings in america you said this, it reflects poorly on liberal policies that encourage out of wedlock childbirth, divorce, single-parent household say more about the undermined respect for life. mass killings are common in america today were, as you just stated when i grew up a very rare thing. the way to prevent mass killings you say is to restore moral values. i will dig into that in just a second is that statement, sir unfairly blame single-parent households in this country for the rise of mass shootings? >> absolutely not.
it blames moral values decline in the united states of america and there are a lot of factors that have contributed to our moral decline. by way of example all the cities i have ever seen suggest that children who are race with just one parent around they do not do as well it's almost impossible for a single parent that two parents collectively can do is just a numbers game a lot of single parents are an excellent job raising their kids. they are super parents and i thank them for the effort they put forth and producing children who later become responsible adults. but unfortunately the date is very clear. those single-parent households for whatever reason end up resulting in children who were more likely to be on welfare. who are less like to get the grades are expected in school part are more likely to be involved in drugs and unfortunately are more likely to be involved in criminal conduct. that is just the data stop as they all sing the parents do
that okay that is not the data. we are talk about probabilities and tendencies and one, two, three, four, five greater probability that has an effect on society. sandra: you are talk calling for glacial change their people want to know what can be done today. help these communities can help identify someone to be adopted in 19 states but not alabama would you support that? hooks are the nicest constitution before you can do something to this kind of individual you have to show one, their mind is off a little bit and two, they have engaged in some kind of conduct that would warrant you taken the appropriate kind of action against them by way of example to house them for their own protection and protection of others. it might be eight mental capacity type of hearing. there are laws already on the books to take care of those types of issues.
the problem is identifying them and identifying them as opposed to the problem associated with miss identifying others. there has to be a balance that is a real problem for probate courts around the country and every other governmental body or person who is responsible for determining when someone becomes a risk to themselves and to others. that is a very difficult thing to mind read. sandra: is it fair to say if it's written correctly open to some sort of red flag law in your state? >> i am not talking about red flag laws print talk about a person who is a danger to others that we already have a loss for that are arty on the books, okay? if you have got some kind of mental issue and you are a danger to your self or a danger to others, then you already can be subject to court jurisdiction in the appropriate court remedies to ensure you are no longer a danger to yourself and to others. that existed now that's been on the books in alabama for decades and i believe it's been on the
books throughout the country for decades. sandra: several speakers that meanwhile chose to not attend the nra including. the nra endorsed you recently. do you believe is appropriate hold that meeting in texas? >> i am not going to comment on the meeting in texas i'm not a part of it. i very much appreciate the national rifle association, gun owners of america and the national association of gun rights have endorsed me at this united state senate race over those that tells a lot of his going to defend the second limit right to bear arms in alabama that's a big deal. sandra: out to the senate primary runoff and former president donald trump you're in a runoff in alabama against katy britt we did invite to join us here today she was unavailable. all this is happening after from president trump decided to un- endorse you, sir send you blown it by going quote woke not tongue but he says 2020 election
fraud. what exactly to the president ask you to do after the 2020 election? >> the president and i had many conversations between september 1 and his decision to un- endorse me but revolves around him being reinstated. revolved around him allowing to rescind the election. i can understand him wanting to he was robbed in my judgment 2020 and his judgment he was robbed but i can understand that desire. the conflict was when i would explain the law does not permit us to do that. our one shot at reversing the election are one shot an election contest of the united states constitution and of federal law is on january 6. that is if that's the final appeal date. anything we do after that has to focus on winning the 2022 and 24 elections. we can use what happened in 2020 as a motivation to try to get better election laws to use as a motivation to win in 2022 and 2024 to save our country.
but what's now done in 2020s irreversible under the nine states constitution and the united states code. i am one of those ablaze in law and order. i might not like it that is the end game. sandra: gone the record there's been no evidence or proof provided there is any sort of fraud. >> that's wrong i don't like people in the media keep saying that that's absolutely false. that is absently false. you keep saying every time but that's absolute falsehood. he had won her but the congressmen and senators who aptly disagree with you on what you just said. so what are you calling them what you calling them to say 150 republican senators and congressmen looked at the voter fraud issue and said there was a major problem. when you calling the commission on federal election reform a bipartisan committee when jimmy carter on the one hand and james baker ronald reagan white house chief of staff back in 2005 to analyze systemic weaknesses the systemic flaws in our election system and warned us elections
are going to be stolen if we don't fix these problems and those problems were not for expert, who telling you there is no evidence. >> the courts and the judges that have appeared. >> noto timeout don't go into that don't go into that. the courts do not have wait a minute no, i am getting in the last were in this you just meant a false statement okay, the courts are not the final arbiter of who wins a federal election contest congress is as required by the nights it constitution as required by the nine states code congressmen and senators and the president. so don't be surprised coats courts don't usurp the power that authorize united states congress records any gop commissioner in wisconsin of the wall street journal today, printed and i will read it verb eight. he said there is no evidence that election fraud is the recent trumpet lost in wisconsin. that is not for lack of looking. his advice to your party is the pivot away from these conspiracy
theories, focus on the issue that affects wisconsin families and their pocketbook spritzer i want to move on to january 6. >> look at the judge's opinion in pennsylvania that talked about over 2 million illegal ballots cast that was or court order. >> is not been subpoenaed yet. >> wisconsin supreme court justice who found significant voter fraud at nursing homes in the state of wisconsin. look at the 2000 mules documentary that is come out. look at how many mass mail out ballots that were across the united states which we have no security. sandra: that is been looked at and fact checked by multiple outlets including reuters who has debunked that a city proof there is widespread fraud. >> i am sorry other fact checkers will keep you but keep up the story if you wish. sandra: reflects back they want to move on to generous six and the committee but have you been subpoenaed? have you been served a subpoena that has been confirmed? for other republican congressmen
have. >> i don't know if the committee has issued a subpoena or not, okay? i have not been privy to any conversations with them but i hear media reports but i can say perfect that i have not been served with any kind of documentation. there is no subpoena until it has been served on the person to whom it is directed. sandra: you signaled this week you are not going to comply unless certain conditions are met including testifying in public should we expect to, if you are indeed served or have been served to see her testifying in public before this committee? >> well, have to get with my colleagues have been purportedly subpoenaed they have said they have been served i don't know why i have it in somehow. i ask of mccarthy went out of his way to accept service. i have looked at some of their communications to, the witchhunt committee pete i place of their communications have merit.
the things with me that i require is first is got to be public. it is garbage something you a fox news can have a camera onto the american people can see it. no more this clandestine secret meeting stuff involving the public's business. no more of these little leakages it's gotta be in public. it's got to be congressmen to congressmen. i've got to be limited to associations limited to generate the sixes has to be up dissent primaries over with. i don't this witchhunt committee nancy pelosi tried to interfere with the republican primary election for the night state senate in alabama. sandra: congressman lassa looking ahead. i feel when this runoff what is the plan to win in november? >> will i'm going to beat the democrats may have a history of beating democrats like a drum i see no reason of this general election in november would be any different. they are socialist their dictatorial they there absolutely the opposite of what we believe in, and the state of alabama paid my record gives democrats is wins, and zero losses.
that is a pretty good record i will defend that against any other cover on this republican primary. the best i understand that of the other republicans running in this race of one even a single election none of them i have held public office before them the only one who's ever held public office on the ever beat the democrats. in 2017 will be elected a democrat you in a state senator from ruby red alabama, if mo brooks is the nominee it ain't happening but if you want help please go to mo brooks.com. sandra: congress and thank you so much for joining us today and fox news hundreds i was good to speak with you thank you sir. >> my pleasure, very lively. sandra: okay up next will bring our sunday panel to discuss the debate over gun control the state of former president trump favorite candidates on the top midterm battle
>> why do we keep letting this happen? where in god's name is our backbone? the courage shoot deal with this and stand up to the lobbyists. it is time to turn this pain into action. >> now is the time to find common ground. sadly before the sun had even set on the horrible day of tragedy we witness in a familiar parade of cynical politicians seeking to exploit the tears of sobbing families, to increase their own power and take away our constitutional rights. sandra: present buying former president trump both speak and this week on the politics of gun control after tuesday's mass shooting. it is time now for our sunday group fox news senior political analyst writ, politico
congressional correspondent olivia beaver's in fox news political analyst juan williams. welcome to all thank you for being here today. >> good morning. >> juan i'll start with you. there's new momentum for for offender gun reform in this country those discussions are underway right now. democrats have not been able to succeed in the past to reform and gun laws were even after sandy hook. will this time be different? >> sondra, good morning. i am skeptical anything can get done. stopping mass murder should not be political. but it clearly is. and nothing was done by the congress after newtown in 2012 even more children were slaughtered by gunmen. if the man from mars landed here today and saw is so divided we cannot even deal with policies to stop mass murder of children, i think he would be in
disbelief. right now with uvalde on her heels and buffalo i think there's growing public frustration and as a result some pressure from congress. you may see some marginal steps taken. but most likely is a red flag lot you were discussing that with congressman brooks. there is also thought about more mental health care resources being given from the government to local government. and then there is some hope for possibility of background checks but again the american people overwhelmingly support this. gun owners as well as people who don't own guns. there is some thought but unlikely of maybe raising the age to 21. we see very young people 18 -year-olds going into a gun store, buying these assault type weapons. huge amounts of ammunition, body armor that should raise a lot of
concern. sandra: greg abbott and dan patrick this week canceled there in person appearances at the nra convention in texas after the shooting. in doing so patrick said he did not want to bring any further pain or grief to these families in uvalde that are still suffering in this moment. several high profile republicans including former president trump did appear in person, is that insensitive? >> are you asking me sandra? >> yes brett. i suppose so. the truth is, if the thing had happened -- of the shooting had happened in washington d.c. and the convention were happening somewhere the same distance away in another state, i don't think it would have had the same -- causes a reaction. i suppose for appearances sake you could say it showing up the nra convention was insensitive to the people in uvalde.
i doubt any of them are paying much attention to that. but the wet or didn't go it's a political gesture all the way around. sandra: olivia, onto the midterm elections. katy and mo brooks are heading to senate primary runoff in alabama. in the last few weeks he has been surging despite a repudiation from president trump. what does that say about the trump endorsement? is it waning? >> donald trump's endorsement i remember asking jim jordan about this a couple weeks ago. what happens if candid to get his endorsement lose? does that mean his influence is waning? he said this is the most important endorsement in the republican party i think that's a fair thing to say is it an end-all be-all? it is set up here so if you look when you gloss the endorsement mo brooks kept pushing forward when katy britt was an katy
britt has had a soaring campaigns which may be 4% of having republican support in the state when she first launched her campaign to having 44% 15-point lead over brooks were seeing this runoff. we will see if donald trump gets involved in this primary race. but clearly it was not a kiss of death for mo brooks. sandra: onto the prime result in george by first bring up the wall street journal piece from this morning the wisconsin gop latest a meltdown asking why do republicans seem so determined to lose the november elections for it in it says this this week's prime result in george approved most republican voters are ready to stop looking backward at 2020 and start trying to get the real work them for their states and their country. time to leave 2020 behind. celebrex, governor kent simile run beating the truck back candidate former senator david perdue by more than 50 points.
huge margin give us your take on what this all means for donald trump and his power of the republican party? what's remains a highly influential figure republican politics but it may be true his endorsement may be worth in the other single endorsement for the evidence from george's very clear this is the big one for him pretty badly wanted to defeat brian kemp because he felt brian kemp did not stand up for him when the election was allegedly stolen. he also wanted to see incumbent candidate for secretary of state go down. both men won. as you noted kemp one by a huge margin which suggests to me as important as a trump endorsement can be, his influence is starting to wane. people are looking ahead and not back. i don't think any candidate who wins a nomination on the republican party and goes into the fall election talk about
what donald trump wants to see us talk about which is how the election in 2020 was stolen is going to find that a very powerful message at a time when so many other issues of greater day-to-day importance to people are crying that issue well out of sight. >> olivia, failing to pennsylvania republican senate primary it is officially headed for a recount. doctor oz currently leads david mccormick by less than 1000 votes there. and he has declared himself the presumptive nominee he did so on friday. is it doctor oz getting ahead of himself here? >> it looks like he is taking a page of donald trump's playbook was is exactly donald trump advise him to do. both mccormick and doctor oz have hired an army of lawyers and they are playing it out whether these on dated ballots are going to be counted. we are going to see how that plays out. but right now oz is trying to claim he has the nominee. we just are not clear yet with this recount.
we will find out soon enough. >> all right many things are panel run to take a quick break right there it will see again shortly. cap next overshadowed by gun violence the white house this week taking unilateral action on criminal justice reform. will bring in senator ben cardin to discuss the move. state of negotiations on capitol hill.
sandra: present by this wig signed an executive order from police reform aimed to increase accountability overdue trust between law enforcement and communities but it comes to us after the death of george floyd. as the u.s. continues to see a spike in crime. just a moment will ask et cetera ben cardin about these reforms and the prospect for bipartisan moves on gun legislation. but first took kevin live in washington forest for the ladies only talks on both sides of the aisle high cabin. >> center, even as a present for slitted trip to texas to comfort the families of those killed in last week's devastating shooting
becker in washington and battle lines as you well know have been drawn by congressional lawmakers over how to best address gun violence a fair to say the sides a bit closer than to find some common ground. >> i don't know whether we will be able to get 60 votes in the senate when i went to do my best to try per quote that's a hope from congressional democrats and even some republicans that this time lawmakers from both sides of the aisle will support some measure "commonsense gun legislation. >> i think there is a sense of urgency that maybe we didn't feel before. >> is a deuce of the white house is hoping the upper chamber will soon confirm the first permanent atf director and seven years of the nomination of steve faces a political headwinds as does the white house on a number of fronts especially with the out of stock rate for baby formula rising to 70% nationwide. up from 45% a week ago. gas prices surging this holiday
weekend in particular with price per gallon of gas and nationwide up over $4.59 a gallon for an all-time record high. my current border crosses reaching numbers never seen before by border patrol agents britt however there may be just a bit of good news for the white house to report of course with her on friday the feds preferred inflation metric may have peaked with the annual price change for the personal conception price index as you will know sander, checking 6.3% for april that's actually down 6.6% in march. we'll have to see how may place out, sander paid. >> a little bit of hope that inflation may be topping out too. let us have one data point we'll see what happens with thank you very much reporting live from washington forest. kevin thank you. joining us now from maryland senator ben cardin. welcome back to fox news sunday, sir welcome. quicksand or it is good to be with you thank you. sandra: center let's her with
prospects for reform. can democrats deliver ten republican senators on any gun reform legislation your take? ask the jury is out on that peru tried on so many different issues and have not been successful even to start debate. whether you deal with gun safety issues or we deal with immigration over deal small business we have not been able to get ten senators to allow student start debate. we're going to have to wait to see. think the urgency is there. i was listening to senator gordon i think there's a real urgency we can show that we can act. i am confident if we can get a on the floor on the gun issues and can pass it, it will be the right signal to the american people pretty probably will not go as far as i would like to see us go. but it will at least show congress can act. >> even some republicans have six signals openness to reforms also point out how complicated this really is read here senator lindsey graham on that.
>> this demand had no criminal record. he shot his grandmother in the face. he lawfully purchased a gun. i don't know how come i can't tell people i can't think of a law that would have stopped this particular shooting. are there other things we can do? yes let's see if we can. >> your response to that, senator. >> i think we could do some things that will save lives by think the red flag background checks, these issues will save some lives. i would like to go further that investing in mental health is good also. military style weapons i think getting them off the street would be very helpful in saving lives. will it save all lives? no. america is an outlier in gun violence we are in a class by ourselves we have to ask why? one of the reasons is the fact it is so easy to get these military style weapons. particular in 18 oh being able to buy that type of weapon party think it raises questions about
america and our laws compared to the rest of the world. so six senate minority leader mitch mcconnell has blessed some gun reform legislation but in the pass easement open to conversation ultimately does not support reform bills, listen. >> i do not want to overstate. [inaudible] up until now it's been pulled out from under me every single time. >> so, when you look at the chances here, is that mcconnell just cannot pull the football out from democrats again? >> we hope these bipartisan negotiations will lead to a critical mass of republicans that will be able to deliver at least ten votes so we can have the debate on the floor of the night state senate. the united states senate is
known as the great deliberative body but if we cannot even get a bill on the floor to debate, where are we? this is an issue the american public expects to act. enough is enough. congress needs to act. need to take action that can help avoid these types of tragedies for an elementary school children being gunned down? we have got to do something. and clearly to gun safety issues are one, mental health is another. there's a lot of areas we can make progress and we need to debate that and come together as a body in order to keep our children safer. sandra: this is also happening in the middle of the texas gubernatorial race pre-take a look at this moment democratic candidate benno o'rourke confronted texas governor greg abbott. >> excuse me. >> set down your out of line and embarrassment. sit down. >> you are doing nothing for. >> to get out of her this is not the place to talk this over.
>> assert you are out of line. sandra: center card and clearly democrats are frustrated the country is frustrated. just that sort of confrontation help matters? >> at this moment i am hopeful democrats and republicans will come together and recognize the safety of our children, the safety of our community needs to come first read that is why we hope this bipartisan group will be able to come together with some legislative action that will give the public the confidence that we are trying to deal with this issue. >> got to come together as a nation. sandra: be okay with that confrontational? >> i did not see the video i cannot see it from where i am right now. i am for us being honest with each other and listening to each other. and making it clear our frustration is americas and outlier pride we need to recognize that. we need to make our community safer.
and we've got to make our schools safe. that is an area were parents send their children expect to be a place of safety another's a lot of frustration a lot of anger a lot of fear out there let's come together do something about it. sandra: the present will be in texas today heading there right now. it is a pressing for action but here's white house press secretary karine jean-pierre listen for. >> will leave the mechanics to senator schumer will need action for that is what we are calling for. but again it would leave it to the leadership the democratic leadership to figure out how they're going to move this forward. sandra: is that a nephew or should the white house be doing more on its own to get something done here? >> i think at this moment we need to have at least ten republican senators that will allow us to move forward on the senate debate. the senator schumer is our point person on that he is delegated to get that type of support. working with senator mcconnell.
i do see the president is going to be engaged pres been very engaged read president biden has been very much engaged in the senate deliberation and he will continue to do that. steve. sandra: congress remains deadlock on police reform serve for years by this means a present use his power to sign executive order focus on federal law enforcement which includes the creation of a database to help track police officer misconduct by some police group celebrated the order is a blueprint for further congressional action while others are dismissing it as a political theater and faulted it for opaqueness. it all comes at a time of spike in crime coast-to-coast in this country. and as republicans hammer your party for being soft on crime and not doing enough to support our police. so senator is this going to bring real change? or is this a symbolic photoshop? >> i think but the president did is very important to get the data so we know exactly what we are talking about. sharing that information,
providing resources to train police officers on sensitivities of communities. i think all of that are important. best practices establishing best practices the use of force all of that is important advancement. what i prefer the night state senate to take this issue up and pass sensible reform? absolutely buried once again we could not get 60 votes we could not get the republicans to join us on a senate floor discussion of this pretty think what the president did is the exact message i'm glad to see it's receiving a warm response from our law enforcement. six oh want to finish off with an issue every american cares about in this moment and that is inflation burdens are hitting the road for the holiday weekend sir they are paying a record high gas prices truckers are feeling the pain, grocery bills are sky high. what is the plan search to bring these prices down? >> what sandra i agree. american families are confronting price increases they are having a hard time dealing with their family budgets.
energy costs are way too high the presidents taken steps to ease that but release of the reserve to recognize international circumstances of war in ukraine and energy prices are not determined here in the united states. but we need to do more about it. our game plan is to tilt the cost centers that are affecting american families were joined with the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs are hoping to have action in those areas that built the cost of childcare, the present has a plan on that. we hope will have cooperation and issues that affect the average american families budget. >> sky high gas prices remain it's inflicting a lot of pain on american families. so this is clearly going to shape up as one of the biggest issues come november elections. center card it's always good to talk too. >> have a nice holiday always good to be with you. >> you as lower back with her sunday group on the second amendment case is it that had
sandra: are back on their panel now. one comment to you first thanks again to all of you for joining us. the supreme court is expected to rule on a huge a second amendment rights case interest the next few weeks. it may be to lose her gun laws for the child to new york state regulation that requires residents and demonstrate a quote actual and articulable need to have a concealed weapon in public prayer and considering that and other recent developments, do you expect democrats to push for their court reforms or for an expanded court? >> you know it is important to
note here that case you are talking about a new york state, sandra, has been upheld by lower courts but i think there are seven states including most american big cities that are covered by requirement that you have to prove a need to carry a gun in public at all times. now in 2008 the supreme court said you can keep a gun at home. they spoke about mental illness and people who were convicted felons being excluded. but they said that is right this case the question is can you carry a gun on the subway? to a stadium sporting event? what about in a government building? i think there's going to be great frustration you mention the democrats but i think publicly if the idea is that people can just carry guns all around, i think you are going to see some expression that you have the three trump justices are pushing this court to the right and taking cases like this that seem to divide the country. sandra: i will let britt

trouble. sandra: olivia the president signed an executive order two years since the death of george floyd employs cost of this after a high-profile effort to pass criminal justice reforms in the senate. ultimately failed. so is this order enough to please the progressives who have long hoped for substantive change? >> think they're going to say this is a good step. in terms of incrementalism that definitely going to push for more changes in police reform. it is just a start in their mind. but, for the time being they're going to be happy there is this advancement. sandra: very interesting stuff. very much thank you very much for panel for joining us on all that. thank you very much. we'll see out next sunday. up next a look at the best advice at commencement speakers advice at commencement speakers had for the class of 2022.
