10-5 The Scoot Show 210pm, Crime in the City & Gun Control
What do you want to say about the Saints performance against the Cowboys? The Saints beat the Cowboys in overtime last night on Sunday Night Football! The Saints came back to take the lead late in the game. With the game tied – the Saints missed a 30 yard field goal sending the game into overtime. The 2nd play in overtime was an 80-yard touchdown pass to J.C. Spiller and the Saints won 26-20! But it wasn’t all pretty. The Saints defense made many mistakes. Drew Brees looked like he was playing with an injured shoulder and the offensive line was often chewed up by the Cowboys defensive line. But when it matter – the Drew Brees and Sean Payton found a way to win! What did you like about the Saints last night? What was the weakest part of the game? Poll: After the game, Drew Brees said, “We got better today.” Did the Saints get better or were they lucky? PLUS: Another weekend filled with armed robberies! There were over a dozen armed robberies...citizens robbed at gunpoint across the Crescent City. What’s the answer? Gun control? MORE guns? MORE police...national guard...or some partnership with other law enforcement agencies? Are these suspect ALL dealing with mental health issues? What do you want to hear the Mayor and the Police Chief say? What do you want to see in your neighborhoods or in the areas where you work? Politics becomes part of every debate we have in America. Tragedies are used to advance political agendas. Since the mass shooting at a community college in Oregon – the debates over gun control and gun rights have ignited once again. The father of the shooter in Oregon said that guns are killers and more has to be done to control guns. Today – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton revealed a new initiative on guns. Clinton wants to close the loophole in gun show and Internet sales of guns. Current law: licensed dealers are required to conduct background checks and certify that potential buyers are not prohibited from owning guns. But unlicensed vendors – including some at gun shows – do not have to follow those rules – Poll: Should the sale of any gun to anyone be subject to background checks?
