A second grade Colorado student was disciplined for drawing a picture of handgun during an assignment. And which students were told to look up at the clouds and draw what they see. He song -- handgun. -- -- -- Problem is the school said that that was disruptive. And they filled -- -- behavior report and said that was congruent with routine procedures focused on school safety. Like a kid. Drawing a handgun and threatened school safety. The students parents obviously disagreed with the discipline. Now. You can look up -- the clouds and see a lot of different as I got a text and somebody earlier. Who said -- what does the kid would have seen two guys kissing. And he would have drawn that he would have been praised by the Obama administration. I don't know about that but it. But I look because sometimes I think see things that I would even more talk about all on the army we see a lot of different things when we see -- Now if this -- saw a gun and then maybe the teacher should have had a conversation with the -- -- innocent conversation why did you see gun or what did you think about a gun. And if the kids -- something that it would cause the teacher to believe that maybe there's some malicious thoughts there. Well that's one thing but chances are this was totally an innocent thing. So once again it's political correctness it's. Zero tolerance. Gone met. And I can't think of how many guns that I drew when I was a kid and didn't mean anything we're we're we're putting too much -- I mean as a society of the united you were -- but as a society we're putting too much meaning. In totally meaningless things and the problem is some people think with these these kinds of policies. Focusing on school -- -- kind of policy drawing a gun your -- you you get a behavior report. People think this is actually making the schools safer when in reality it's not doing a damn thing. And there are other things going on that are going unchecked. That are not making schools. A safer place. Also tonight we talked about it earlier this week with two -- Now it's chili's restaurant that's the latest restaurant dealing with pro gun activists bringing in their guns into the restaurant to make a point. About the Second Amendment. Here's a -- you'll pretty -- my opinion poll tonight is it wrong for restaurants to tell customers that cannot bring their guns in even if there carrying legally. Right -- 26% say yes and 74%. -- -- Give us your opinion by going to our web site WWL dot com also be a -- like to set a blood that we have every posted wrote this when when Starbucks. First over this issue I've -- pro gun activists coming in with their guns just to make a point is to -- the Second Amendment. And his title Starbucks ask customers to lead their guns at home. And this has been a controversial thing. And I'm I'm afraid that this. Kind of mentality is going to spread and and happened more often causing even more restaurants to have to. A publicly make a decision about not allowing customers to bring their guns. And I don't like the idea that it -- the Second Amendment. And I also stand by the idea. It did I can or anybody can be critical. Of some fringe gun owners. Who have an agenda. Without being critical of gun owners in general and without being critical of the Second Amendment. We've also talked tonight about something that to Mark Cuban the owner of the Dallas Mavericks -- He said that if he sees a black kid in a hoodie or white guy with a shaved head and tattoos he was -- walk on the other side of the street. Not that Mark Cuban whatever really have to do it but is it is that a legitimate technique may deceptive -- legitimate way to it to be safer is that something that you do. I don't -- -- hurting somebody's feelings but I mean is it really practical to think that walking on the other side of the street. If you see somebody coming and you suddenly go to the other side is -- do you really feel like that which is safer. Again to join -- shortly with your comment on numbers 2601870. Toll free 866. 8890 point seven -- it was 8787 got a text a moment ago asking when the media showers and take place early tomorrow morning. And I'm assuming this guy's gonna be very clear for this meteor show -- which starts very early this morning I'll get that information for you and I will have coming up after the next break. -- Tennessee Mike here on this -- show good leading. They. I got -- at all or did I help thank you you being right. I have -- the outlaw all black male -- level almost polarized city in the world and it all right so. Arnold brought his comments which I met -- just a bit like -- -- -- little sloppy play and I believe we. Because last drivers are probably -- partners not called it. Comfortable to just beat Carl and out of some people like me being black. But but Mike if you're in okay I understand being in an area date that you might not perceive as being safe than it is true that there are some areas that are not as soon as safe as other areas seeing that you're see where you can Memphis. It's all all right it's being well. They don't know eight at the clock. Okay I I yeah -- said. But if you're walking it if you're walking down Beale street users you're walking in a popular area of Memphis of the business area Memphis. And you saw somebody walking down which you cross the street. How about -- problem. But all of that optical on call yes. -- Yeah.

Yeah an -- and I yeah I mean Mike I I do understand that and I honestly I don't judge people. By a parties or whatever. And I see equities on mannequins in department stores and I see -- in fashion magazines so police are are fashionable. But I appreciate what you're saying and I really don't think that. I really don't think that anybody should. Should go out of their way. To act intimidating. And I think if you are a tight who tends to be stereotyped. And there are people who stereo type -- in a very different way. So I guess there were times when I try to act a certain way that I don't accentuate. The stereotype that people bestow upon me. -- quick follow Carl agree with the rest. Apple might dislike or -- practices. And regulation you have the right back.

And I hope everybody's listening to this because this is something that is just so. Unfair. You know when I was asked to. To describe. The then four guys who attacked me. I had to be really really careful because I did with the wrong person to be identified and and I saw a lot of people. And I may have even passed on that the ATP Alexi did this to me but I would I would go through the pictures of of lineups -- with police officers and it'll PD. On numerous times they we show me just a series of pictures. And I say you know this guy looks similar -- -- him arrested well it looks release it really looks familiar but I mean I can't say for sure I mean I was really really I would rather. Let somebody go. Then. Say that the wrong person did it. And that's about it opened holes for yep are at stake in and the warmest urged Britain. Trying to draw that I have been done with it and my my lawyer was so confident that I was innocent. But I did have a criminal record Olympic oval the joke what we're trying to figure -- this league being. -- -- -- -- -- -- You know that this was based on on just one person identifying you.

Imperial couple might also be picked me out of a lot of that the team can put it looks like maybe in the war. You know it's it's all right it's it's almost as stiff and maybe they shouldn't have people in a lineup that looks similar. They should have the person they suspect. In a lineup with people that don't look at similar so it would be obvious whether that's the person or not again I'm just I'm appalled. That that happened to you. You know and I also don't like but I have a criminal record best in the business but why wouldn't you know I don't know about criminal court.
