Gun rights activists' paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future prevents America from addressing its actual dystopic present. (8:14)

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW.

I APOLOGIZE FOR MY VOICE.

A LITTLE COLD.

WE'VE LEARNED IN OUR CONVERSATION ABOUT THE COUNTRY'S STAGERING NUMBER OF GUN RELATED

DEATHS BUT IT'S BASED ON A SURPRISING AMOUNT OF NONE NON-GUN FACTORS.

GOD, IMMEDIATE WHY AND CRAZY PEOPLE.

THAT'S A BUSY GRAPHIC.

CAN BE STREAMLINE THAT AND REPRESENT ALL THREE STITTENCECIES?

THERE YOU GO.

[ LAUGHTER ]

I'M GOING TO SAY THIS CONVERSATION IS TAKING PLACE BETWEEN PARTIES GOVERNOR FAITH

AND THAT ALL OF US ON ANY SIDE OF THE DEBATE ARE ANTI-MASSACRE.

IF COMMON SENSE FIREARM REGULATIONS MIGHT CUT THE NUMBER OF THESE KILLINGS, WHY NOT TRY?

>> WE HAVE MANY, MANY LAWS PERTAINING TO GUNS ALREADY.

>> WE HAVE LAWS BANNING MURDER BUT WE STILL HAVE MURDERS.

>> DRUNK DRIVING DO WE GO TO THE FORD MOTOR COMPANY AND TELL THEM STOP MAKING AUTOMOBILES BECAUSE

PEOPLE GET DRUNK AND KILL PEOPLE IN CARS?

>> Jon: SO WE DO CHARGE BARTENDERS WHO SERVE DRUNKS, AND LAUNCH PUBLIC AWARANCE CAMPAIGNS

AND HAVE TOUGHER DRUNK DRIVING LAWS BECAUSE IT MIGHT JUST BRING DRUNK DRIVING RATES DOWN BY -- I

DON'T KNOW -- TWO THIRDS IN A FEW DECADES.

LIKE MAGAZINE SIZES SMALLER MAGAZINES FOR GUNS.

MAKE THEM HAVE TO RELOAD MORE.

>> CAN I DO THAT PRETTY QUICK.

>> Jon: YOU ARE FAST FINGERS GRAHAM THE FOREMOST GUN ENTHUSIAST SLASH SPEED OR GAMY CHAMPION?

THE WORLD.

HOW HE USES HIS GUN HANDS TO MAKE SUCH DELEGATE PAPER ART.

WHY IT'S A MYSTERY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

ALL RIGHT.

MAGAZINE RESTRICTIONS WON'T HELP.

HOW ABOUT WE KEEP ALL THE GUNS EXCEPT WEAPONS DESIGNED PURELY TO GO AFTER ENEMY SOLDIERS.

>> WE'VE HAD A SO CALLED ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN FOR TEN YEARS.

STUDIES SAID IT MADE NO DIFFERENCE.

IT WAS ILL CONCEIVE AND IT DIDN'T WORK PROPERLY.

>> Joe: YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY, IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED (bleep) IT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WE'RE NOT LOOKING FOR MAGIC, FLYING SOLVING PROJECTILE.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR A SERIES OF STEPS FROM DIFFERENT AREAS THAT COULD IMPROVE THE SITUATION AS

OPPOSED TO WHAT WE HAVE NOW WHICH IS LEGISLATION RIDERS THAT PREVENT THE ATF FROM CHECKING

INVENTORIES AND BILLS MAKING IT HARDER WON'T GET DO NOT BUY LIST AND LAWS FOR -- PEOPLE GOD

FORBID McDONALDS DOESN'T TELL YOU HOW HOT THEIR HOT STEAMY COFFEE IS.

THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE TAKING THE MONEY TRAIN TO McPUNITIVE DAMAGE TOWN.

AN EPIDEMIC OF GUN VIOLENCE.

OUR HANDS ARE TIED.

WE CAN'T DO EVERYTHING.

WE ARE A NATION OF OVER REACTORS TO EVERYTHING.

WE HAVE STEP-BY-STEP CHILD PROOFED THIS ENTIRE COUNTRY.

20 YEARS AGO A GUY THROUGH A ROCK OVER AN OVERPASS AND HIT A CAR WINDSHIELD AND NOW EVERY

OVERPASS IS BLOCKED.

THERE'S A NET OVER THE GOALPOST.

WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS?

MAKE GUNS LESS SEXY SO THEY WOULDN'T BE SO COOL.

THE NEXT JASON BORNE MOVIE STARS WOODY ALLEN.

NOT REALLY A GUN PERSON.

NOT SO MUCH THE KILLING BUT THE LOOGD AND THE CLEANING.

IT'S A LOT OF WORK.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OR EVEN BETTER CREATIVE SOUND EDITING TO TAKE AWAY THE COOL GUN FACTOR.

[SIRENS] SEE.

THOSE SILLY SOUND EFFECTS COMPLETELY STOPPED BY DESIRE TO GET CAUGHT IN A BLOODY THREE-WAY

MEXICAN STANDOFF.

WE WOULD LOVE TO YOUR IDEAS.

THERE ARE NO BAD IDEAS.

I REFUSE TO PLAY THE GAME OF YOU IS ASSAULT WEAPON.

IT'S A HAMMER.

AN ARTICLE CL CAME OUT THIS WEEK OF A MASSIVE NUMBER KILLED WELL HAMMERS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: OKAY.

IF YOU WANT TO REGULATE HAMMERS, WE COULD TRY THAT.

WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO REGULATE BAGS OF HAMMERS OR ANYONE AS DUMB AS THAT?

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT ASIDE FROM HAMMER CONTROL WHICH, BY THE WAY, WAS A GREAT MC HAMMER ALBUM, DO YOU HAVE ANY

OTHER IDEA TREERS -- IDEAS FOR REDUCING GUN VIOLENCE?

>> THE ONLY THING THAT STOPS A BAD GUY WITH IS A GUN S, IS A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN.

>> Jon: SO A SCHOOL PRINCIPAL WITH A GUN IS GOING TO STOP A GUY WITH A BULLET PROOF VEST AND

A GUN.

I DON'T THINK PRINCIPAL BELDEN IS AS BAD ASS AS WE THINK.

IT'S WEIRD TO ME THAT GUN ENTHUSIASTS WON'T EVEN ENTERTAIN THE IDEA -- LET ME RESTATE THAT

SOME WON'T ENTERTAIN SOME MOVES TO REIN IN THIS VIOLENCE.

WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON HERE?

>> WE HAVE CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOM THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS IN THIS COUNTRY.

>> Jon: YEAH, YEAH FOR A WELL REGULATED MILITIA.

NOT A PERSONAL ARSENAL FREE FOR ALL.

THERE'S ALL SORTS OF THINGS YOU CAN'T HAVE ALREADY.

TANKS, F-16 FIGHTER JETS, SURFACE TO AIR ANYTHING.

PEOPLE HAD MUSKETS THEN.

SO, OKAY, YOU CAN HAVE ALL THE MUSS CETZ YOU WANT.

YOU CAN EVEN -- MUSKETS YOU WANT.

YOU CAN HAVE ASSAULT MUSKETS FOR ALL I CARE.

JAZZ IT WITH A BAYONET.

GO (bleep) NUTS.

WHY IS IT THAT WE'RE UNABLE TO MAKE THE MOST BASIC STEPS TOWARDS PUTTING TOGETHER A

COMPLEX PLAN OF ACTION TO SLOW THIS SPREAD.

WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON HERE?

>> I THINK YOU, LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE, JOSHUA, ARE WORRIED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS COMING

AFTER OUR GUNS.

>> Jon: NOW WE'RE GETTING SOMEWHERE.

IT'S ABOUT HOW CLOSE SOME PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY FEEL THEY ARE LIVING TO A TYRANT'S RULE.

>> IT'S SOMETHING WE'VE SEEN HAPPEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN IN HISTORY WITH STALIN.

HAPPENED IN CAMBODIA AND OF COURSE THE THIRD REICH, COMING.

NO ONE SAUL THAT.

>> STALIN TOOK THE GUNS, FIDEL CASTRO TOOK THE GUNS.

I'M HERE TO TELL YOU 1776 WILL COMMENCE AGAIN IF YOU TRY TO TAKE OUR FIREARMS!

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: OH (bleep).

NO ONE IS TAKING AWAY ALL THE GUNS.

BUT NOW I GET IT.

NOW I SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING.

THIS IS WHAT IT IS.

THEIR PARANOID FEAR OF A POSSIBLE DISTOPPIC FUTURE PREVENTS US FROM ADDRESSING OUR

ACTUAL DYSTOPIC PRESENCE.

WE CAN'T DISCUSS THE GUN DEATHS HAPPENING IN REALITY EVERY YEAR BECAUSE A FEW OF US MUST REMAIN

VIGILANT AGAINST THE RISE OF
