Ours Bob match old WW LA MI famine dot com 10 minutes after 8 o'clock the situation with the Florida shooters just boggles. Your mind here's a guy that was being treated for mental illness. He says the FBI is making me watch officials but he knows. They take is going away from him and then they give it back after thirty days because their evaluation said he was stable enough. And I guess what happens is you between the rock and a hard place we fight so hard for gun rights in this country and no one's gonna take that right away. And you gotta wonder if that right is there is is just overwhelmed from the standpoint that. That seems to be more important than anything not losing to GAAP. Edited Singler we're really hold the line on out and but he also said he was hearing voices and views being directed by the CIA year now man and and yet. The evaluation when it was over said well we think he's mental mentally stable enough to Evansville nurture gun. I don't know if all right it's 11 minutes after 8 o'clock now the TS TSA allows firearms and bulls will be transported as long as they are packaged in luggage. Sure of this rule be changed I'd like your thoughts on that. And I would I would like your thoughts on that this particular situation. Do we need to in some come away. Make the evaluation. A little bit harder for people to get there are gone back or. Do drug and gun rights trump all of its 2601878. We're also going to be talking about some that I know you're really pumped up about. Get ready for brand new shiny traffic cameras but let's go to Katherine incoming and Catherine thank you so much for calling WW what's on your mind as. Thank you. Our. Market. Add that you know practically everyday you. You know the wait a good. Car. 47 years old not only by the time they they. Like rock. The Lleyton. Carolina and go to the parents and get police report and it's been there aren't that it may. And now I don't get what it. Legally. Alex in May you know. We're controlling. That they would get a thirty day period. Wait a little from them. Well I wonder if what's happening is that we fight so much of this country for the right to own a weapon so from one standpoint at least the right. Prevailed in an in this position. But I mean. You would you would think that more common sense have to be used that that would just have to I guess what I'm trying to slate. I think we just have to tighten those evaluations and obviously. Littler young man. Needed help. He was screaming for help you know what when you go say that make me listens to appeal to tape the crisis you you are saying I need help. He was getting some help but yet I guess they just didn't want to pull that trigger in sight we're gonna take you don't like. I agree I agree. I should say that it. It might not like take prozac now. I feel that it took me and get caught and sent him. To go to get help I needed. And that they're I have such an. And it. But I I think you'd like it looked upon favorably may not make it orbit. We. Don't get. You're not apparently apartment now people now mentally ill people. Catherine when they ask yourself in also wouldn't be talking about it a few minutes what is your opinion. Of these traffic camera do you think there moneymaking schemes or do you think it is republics left. And making. It the way they cut you know like Aaron. They don't know. And they do it pretty history. And it wouldn't like a Big Brother Italy while. I'm what I. I personally believe it is a scheme to bring more money and to the city's. And I mean on those cities need more money. That people wanna play higher taxes shall this is one way of doing it to me by early to me. I think that when it comes to if you get a ticket what you can flight. But who wants to take a day off of war usually lose money. And I think that's the scam I think it is we're gonna give you a ticket out torture confided but most people won't buy it I think that's I think that it's like well. I think a lot because their one and people aren't built the bank static you know that. And on the paper that it's a money making. I'm I'm with you cap and you have a good day okay you.

Or if they get all about making money I loved your doors and you guys who have actually gotten tickets. Did you play a huge fighter how to network for 260187. Its go to James in Slidell power this morning James. Jamie birth of a what do you think about traffic cameras do you think that really a for public safety or just the way to the city to make extra money or maybe a little balls. Or. Early I. Liked highway robbery late. You may never know I've heard and not all thank that. So all around and. At the camera will always seems to be. On the camera slide in the worth if if if it's going to be a thin line. That have or fourth time in moving on certain lights it always seems to be in the advantage of the camera. Actually apple. To park. While at our New York State. People. Should. Watched. Her objected that this. And the light actual ball well. On boulder I pledged. It brought. Apple its way back on both shot at it it didn't moderate as well. Well it it it happened to be one time and and not and I did exactly I think what they want you to do. They don't watch it a flight. They want to I. Just play it you know if they really wanted Judith fun if they if they really were going to be fair. Then they ought to set up a group of law agents that come to your office. And straight all right why are you fighting this and look at the video. But no you have to go down and slide on I'm a realist and so is ridiculous but if they really want to be fair that would make it easier for you and not I have to go. Go to city hall and and fight this and give up a day's work. And I mean it okay let's see it can cost you know how much debt that you aren't super hundred dollars or I under. Well it's been a guy screw up the honor and saint. Or art art les did you give you a oh wait to fight of that you don't have to take a day off aboard. James mostly on the board you also want to say something about food and the shooting in Florida all. James you with they. Against James had to had to go so we'll go to Virginia Virginia power you. I'm fine you won't talk about the the the traffic cameras all day to make money for the city primarily or for safety. He. It. But I had. Not yet bought bought and Ilie beat. And luckily. It. But I it. Cheap I. Again I don't have a problem with the cameras if they made it easier for you to appeal looked at him where you don't have to tell it to an awful work. But on the other hand. A lot and if people eat regularly eat. As I can only do our I know what I like and how are evident and you know I love it at the camera. You know I think most people it would agree. 80 well. Have you ever got a ticket. And what does he do that he item that you play. And did he think he was innocent. No so he he knew he was guilty. Is just a child to. I'm all right with that but I've I've had friends who have of got the tickets and the way they described it to me that they they were totally innocent of course everybody doesn't understand. You know but that's the problem if you truly think that is if you truly think. And there are some people understand you can't go sometimes it does get overturn very very rarely. But some type where they just need to make it easier. So people don't Atlantic and fired day off work to plead your case. I agree it a guy lighting and and it panel acted Jack and not you or at least right. And I got 11 time I don't think I deserved applause and I'm not gonna buy eldest son and the John Virginia thank you for being parlor show morning. All right let me get this straight I was listening to an interview in your newscast. And the guy says if you're thinking about fully in a row on your mate you go talk to them about it so in other words you go to you wiping its look only. They got this really hot woman at work and she's been flirting with me yeah you and she wants me to take out of town for the weekend I've been thinking about that. And I've been thinking about fooling around right I see it would probably be about the last thing only days ago full bowl yeah it would do that a complete certified. Not just a fool. I'll serve Florida aren't carrying fools. Our trust is mortgage it's cool and mild likable. This right right now for goodness gracious you now what I like and that's what's the strangest applies I've ever. I'm wow were you flying these people land. Are out there. Thank you Dave let's go to Marcel Marshall thank you for calling WW power. Our our two or are you married martial. Artist who now call us at argue married. A double. Happily divorced. And ethnic budget you like to think about full and round. Name although it. All right I'm Marcel you. Wouldn't be all right you're talking. The traffic cameras these tickets for public lately a scam more little blue both. Well. I think it's still quick take much for the treatment awake but it might. But get out and out but probably. Should make money and it's the but. I think get on the camera one there in the and now on. Yeah. They all work you do not have done it to its tortured it you know and that. Oh that's cool though and I there are holes where you. Now there. No. Instruction. So it was at all. Trying to. Change. They'll have no male or don't put the trap become another. Yeah. You. I take it well right our honoree and the logo on front. That's on bullets aides say that tour I think it goes on that tour I think they should give you eight easier way to appeal least and is. I think it's great to have on the school's old style Saturdays and Sundays I had a friend same thing happen and we got 11 a Saturday but yet he's at at. Too difficult to take off of work. I'm just gonna play it and I think. That's what they call on the big if somebody pretty drive were opinion poll question our traffic enforcement cameras about money. Safety or a little but the ball you can go to WWL dot com looks go to a bill in the world and bill what do you think money safety or a little bit of both. Yup. You got a camera take it one time. I've gotten a couple. And and one on the at least one Alamo was legitimate and I've paid it and the other one. Which really bothered me was. I was part. In a area where the vehicle was in the view of the camera. And I was parked legally. And somebody else random. I think grant to the schools on exit and an excessive speed. And for some reason I got the ticket. So. I went down and I actually went down to I want that one now you can I think there's a way this is a bit of the year I think there's a ways that you can. Go back to the vendor. At the time I think it probably sang one of firm and Arizona. That. This is who doesn't want traffic cameras are used they. And he'd go back to them app review it but it did that takes awhile and so I just went down to. Down near City Hall they do those things and it was kind of a little bit surreal because site. You'd think they review the video date they need to take to newspapers and it goes back the visa via in the Koreans say OK what problem. And I said world do you see where my car is and I had to explain to them that I'm in the parked car over and you can look at the license plate numbers of the health you know I'm not sure if they. If the person that I'm talking to is just acting. Stupid or do. I don't think acting. A. So I think it will bootable I think that. Tippett. They have for example did you know typical that won't I think it's good to have those cameras around school to do that I think that's a good thing. But but but yet like a guy who called earlier and I am a friend. Got a dual zone ticket on a Saturday because it. I heard of yeah great the end so that that say I think the function. I mean error will happen in the process. Are the competed these are these are I. There's no human involved. India opened some certain point where humans won't get involved and it's it's on the computer will make the mistake. And incentive detect it. And you gotta bite those. I have a text message that says that. Even if you fight it and you win you still have to play a certain amount of money for court cost. You know. I don't that wasn't true a few years. And I'm not sure I'm just reading it sought I don't know. That was indeed. And I haven't gotten. Traffic every ticket in a couple years and but back and or situation confided he used and I'll hammer Hewitt or you could go back to the vendor he thought they made a mistake. Now I was so perturbed with the let me make another point. The point that was gonna make was that like a lot of things in the city in New Orleans they're done and how they fashion the city making money opposite the vendors making more money as Citibank into the cities making money out there and I think the vendors probably. Supplying him putting out the cameras and were you know this issuing tickets now and without the but how hard would you drive around the world and use it with no license plate. Or with the anti. Right. And yeah blah blah is so. So that's great so you're giving tickets to the law abiding citizens who part putting those inside Lorie they've gone but the but. Does he does not make much sense of all bill appreciate you voted and that I received a couple of text messages wielding an update on the congress condition. He had knee replacement surgery want while that you starting on rehab. I understand he's still. Waiting to hear back from the credit card company if cash back applies to new replacement don't have an update on that let's go to frank. Frank thank you for calling WWL. Their remarkable or doing.
