1:04 am
9 millimeters handguns. >> .22 caliber bullets were live and we could probably get it out and save lives. 9-millimeter bullets out of the body. so the idea is high caliber weapons. no rational place for it in terms of -- >> todd: the president also saying the constitution was "never absolute." the americans could not go out and buy a canon when the second amendment. and that was by many fact-checking organizations. now, dramatic gun-control measures of his own, listen. >> we need less gun violence. we cannot let the guns debate become so polarized that nothing gets done.
1:05 am
we cannot let that happen in our country. what this means is that it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in canada. >> congressman james comer joins us now, congressman, good morning to you. you are the prime minister say that if this bill passes up north, people in canada will no longer be allowed to buy guns here they are being encouraged to give up the guns they have through a gun buyback program. we want to talk about this with you because this seems like it could be something to move the goalpost in the u.s. this could be the new hole for gun-control advocates here. so, what is your reaction to this? what will happen to canada if it passes question work >> well, i'm not really shocked justin trudeau would push somete this. it seems like every year during his administration he gets
1:06 am
further and further to the left. we see that with the democratic party in america. they get further and further to the left. i think canada is successful in banning guns, just like the prime minister proposed, you will see what happens in chicago and washington, d.c., where they annexed strict gun control. crime actually goes up here the criminals will break the law and continue to own guns. all that will be punished by the excessive gun-control will be law-abiding citizens who want to own firearms to protect their families. >> todd: based on what we are hearing do you expect a gun compromise with the democrats? or is nothing going to happen on that going forward besides staying in their entrenched positions? >> well, obviously this is an emotional issue. if there were evidence that shows excessive gun-control laws somehow limit gun crimes, then i
1:07 am
think there would be the potential in the house of representatives for some type of government. but there is not evidence out there that shows in acting gun-control could do anything to relive to reduce gun crime. this is something the left has been advocating and successful against the united states. but everywhere there is gun-control laws in these blue cities, you have the highest rate of gun violence. so my concern is coming law-abiding citizens having the ability to go out and purchase firearms to protect their families. we have instances almost every week where there is a citizen that protects their family with a firearms. we also have horror stories like we saw in uganda. so this is a serious issue but gun-control is not the issue. i think republicans have advocated for many years for
1:08 am
more funding for mental health issues and for better coordination between law enforcement agencies whenever you have these types of threats, especially among high school students. we also advocated for security. what we saw in texas, a great amount of security. we saw a school that was supposed to be secure but unfortunately, there were mistakes made in the shooter went in the back door. so we have to learn and certainly do everything in our ability to never see this. >> carley: senator, led by texas john cornyn, they will meet today to talk about possible bipartisan gun reform bill. i know red flag laws and universal background checks are something that are being floated. we will have to wait and see if anything comes of that. going back to what prime minister justin trudeau said introduced legislation on basically a gun ban. in canada, other than using
1:09 am
firearms for shooting and hunting, there is no reason anyone in canada should need guns in their everyday lives. and i think he just left out a really important point why somebody would want to buy a gun. and that is self-defense. >> self-defense. if you look at rural america in kentucky, any respective criminals know that every household in the community, the rule community, believes in the second amendment to protect their family. that is what the second amendment is all about. i think democrats want to lose sight of that. they are trying to score political points to push their radical left agenda. and i think we need to focus on security. we need to focus on mental health issues, better coordination, better training,
1:10 am
but certainly not do anything to infringe upon our second amendment rights. >> todd: and talking about the fact it does not appear what happens from progress of our left perspective up in canada sometimes makes its way down to us. that is increasingly more so every single day. with that, congressman, your thoughts on this president biden will meet with federal chair jerome powell with the current state of businesses that typically thrive during the summer. your ice cream shop, shutting down overwork and, the decision to pay people not to work has put us in the mess we are in. your local ice cream shop not being able to hire people because people get enough to stay on the sidelines and they are used to it by now. >> exactly, todd. the president has put jerome powell in a box. the economy is seriously
1:11 am
spidering right now because of inflation and because of supply chain crises, because of the labor shortage. all of these have been created by bad excessive spending and policies that pay people not to work. we've had a war on american energy that has led to more inflation. we've had american last agenda that focuses on ukraine's border security above american border security. all of these things have led to the situation where we are now in inflation continues to rise and it is affecting every american's paycheck every day. the federal reserve will only be left with one option to control inflation because that is their primary role to control inflation pure they have to raise interest rates. when they raise interest rates, that makes it harder to buy a home and usually makes the stock market go down as we have seen with the last few rate increases and that will affect your rate.
1:12 am
this is what happens when you have bad left-wing policy and that's what we've had out of the biden administration. >> carley: the op-ed in "the wall street journal" began like this "global economy faces serious challenges. exacerbated by vladimir putin in ukraine and energy markets are in turmoil, supply chain that hasn't fully healed are causing shortages and price hikes." nowhere does it talk about the american rescue plan and extraordinary amount of money into the economy at a time when america didn't necessarily need to be rescued. >> we did not. and i said countless republicans in the house of representatives kept saying that. there are consequences to borrowing money from china and inflation. here we are we have a high inflation with locked down. i'm 49 years old and there's no end inside. to think you will see more and
1:13 am
more inflation and the policies will shut the economy down. the economy of paying people not to work. these policies are going to have unintended consequences and that is higher inflation. i don't think jerome powell has any options other than to increase interest rates, and again that will have detrimental effect as well. but i think that outweighs inflation. joe biden has put us in a terrible situation with the excessive, unnecessary spending with his war on american energy and the only way to combat it, it appears is through higher interest rates. >> todd: 4.5 million people out of the workforce than pre-pandemic level. that is not good, congressman. congressman james comer, we appreciate it. >> thank you for having me on. >> carley: the border crisis not using up with 4,000 illegal immigrants crossed over the rio grande into the u.s. over the holiday weekend. >> todd: border patrol saving multiple known sex offenders
1:14 am
re-crossing the border. alexandria hoff with the latest, alexandria. >> crossing the border because likely deported. chief reporter agent tweeting "two days in a row agents in the del rio sector, and a picture there in total to an offender is now three days ahead of the border patrol praised his agents for additional findings as well which include 131 pounds of fentanyl and assassination suspect. the agents performed 22 water rescues. they found the bodies of three apparent migrants who died trying to cross the rio grande. in a statement, rodney scott laid the blame on the biden administration for this crisis "there is no effort to secure the border and figure out who and what is coming in with a chaotic situation like this and they have created this through their policies."

1:16 am
deliver a verdict as early as today in the trial of michael sussman. judge cooper sent the jury to jury deliberations friday afternoon with the government and his defense but cooper said jurors should not be improperly influenced by biases including political affiliation. special counsel john durham aim to court armed with evidence including emails, bills and receipts for jurors during closing arguments as they make their final arguments to sussmann lied to the fbi when he said he wasn't bringing trump russia allegations on behalf of the client spirit and build the clinton campaign on the same day he met with the fbi. according to the evidence, sussmann built a campaign 2016 for work in communications with a confidential project. that same day, sussmann went to fbi general counsel james baker claiming he had information of a
1:17 am
covert communication channel between the trump organization and russia. sussmann's attorney said he it is possible he spent three hours working on clinton campaign items and rightfully build the campaign. his attorneys argued about that. the fbi meeting was separate. the session 9:00 a.m. and met several hours friday afternoon. to deliver a verdict this morning or more deliberating to do but we will bring it more to you as it comes in. >> todd: thank you. >> carley: senior reporter josh boswell said that democrat sweeping under the rug, the hunter biden scandal, the clintons and speaker nancy pelosi's husband, watch. >> we see this path emerging among some of these prominent families in politics where you get maybe not being charged with any crimes, but simply swirling around many of them going through generations.
