Bob Mitchell’s in for Scoot again tonight. Some hot topics coming up: After another school shooting, this time outside of Portland, Oregon…do you think it’s time for gun laws to be tightened in America? PLUS: A Pennsylvania boy who told his teacher he mistakenly brought in a toy gun in his backpack, still received a two day suspension because of a zero tolerance policy. Should he have receieved a reward instead of punishment for reporting his mistake to the teacher ? What kind of message are we sending to this kid…to all kids in schools when zero tolerance policies make silly decisions like this? ALSO: a new study from the Mayo Clinic says that sleeping with your pet actually disturbs your sleep and you don’t get the rest you need. Does your pet sleep with you in the same bed? What’s more disruptive to your sleep, sleeping with a pet in the bed or with one of your young kids? AND: our WWL/Paretti Opinion poll: The twin span bridge will now be known as the Frank Davis ‘Naturally N’Awlins’ Memorial Bridge. Are you for or against this change?
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.
President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly. Does this reflect badly on the Republicans?

Well surprise it is made Bob Mitchell be real Robert neutral drilling in pursuit dude is filling in for. Garland then I'll be -- rushed the week in fact I'll be here next week also.

Who used a rifle. Is also dead. Moms demand action for no incidents in America as part of an every town for gun safety. Released the following statement and want to listen to it. We know what you think about it. -- -- -- Once again our hearts are broken the learned of another school shooting. This time at Reynolds high school in Oregon we send our kids to school each day to learn math and science not duck and cover. And I know events like today put fear in the hearts of all parents across the country wonder if the next shooting. Will be at their children's school today. Where KP in the Reynolds students faculty parents first responders and community and our thoughts and prayers. We're also standing together McCall and our elected officials to support. Common sense reforms to our broken gun laws. That can help stop tragedies like these from happening now is the time to stop this senseless gun violence. We hear our representatives calling for prayer but today we call on responsible gun owners mothers. Fathers and all concerned citizens to call our elected officials to pass reasonable reform. That will prevent gun violence. Today shooting. What those 74 -- Newton our children and teachers should be learning and teaching in -- not a long ago. Powering undergoes -- evacuated from schools with her hands raised in the year. Now they don't specified. What type of reforms that would like the city's. My question to you tonight is quite simple. What time for reforms and he would you'll like proceed. And what if anything can we do was a country to stop this waste of blood what can we do or do we just accept. That we live in a world that when people want to do evil day will find a way. I would like to have some type of reform that would Nixon's. I can't come up with -- right now I don't know. Maybe. Maybe increased background checks. To see who we're putting. Who was a purchasing the guns may be that would work. Ottawa and he won the -- goes away. I would I would not be against that. And deepened my gut I really believe that no matter what gun laws you pass. It may be able to. Steal some of the bat and it just even if we save one life it's worth it. But I do believe that someone wants a gun and wants to do bad they're going to do it. Give me your thoughts on it at 2601878. 8668890. -- that is it time to get real serious. About doing something different about the way we allow people purchase guns also on our WWL talked table. A seven year old boy in Pennsylvania. Told his teacher he mistakenly.

School has the metal detector but you know I like that there's part of me that the partly that's that's the right thing to say but I -- I. If you if you pick me up against the wall. I don't know if there's one thing we can do to stop any of. It's now the only the only was the mentality of the people commit to your -- -- -- -- -- -- -- did you look at the did. They were worried about -- money. Well that's that that that's part of the problem with that withdrawal of some of our young people at that than they don't care today. There that we're getting the point I've mentioned this earlier. When I was going to school if you got and I counseled someone you met after school and you knew you dude you went to fist city with the sudden now. You disrespect for more than stool in and it does that they might shoot through the much stab you with a knife. They're there and we we Earl -- we or in this country are young people or losing respect for life. Yeah -- -- the legal system. It's not punishment. -- -- worried about it in Italy -- and the punishment. -- -- you're welcome written on not only would seniors could be. Could be. Well looked at looked at what we have been going through here in our city and that is the effect at the prisoners complained. But at the jail was not air division the jails were too hot. And and and so they had to take -- changed the conditions. The transit because it was inhumane for. That Hillary and. Look at look at look at the death penalty. It all on some things say they stop. Executing people because it might be painful to that in a sense that none what so. And the record. You know what program. On Yemeni pets. I used to. Do you sleep in the -- girl to bed. And in and out. It it is amazing how many people that I talk to tonight that their pets sleep in the Bellamy and -- -- and all right. -- if I had to do all over again they would like to figure out a way to get them out of the bed. I would do it won't like -- of whatever dogs as these eighteen years will not I think about -- the changes tablets now we might just die right there on the hot. Yeah. And these in. Our lives a street that. That's right that's exactly we have we have one dog that she will get up to go to the bathroom and if my wife. Terms and is sleeping in her spot mean she she can -- habit she'll bark. You want to move over associated did it. -- That's -- Thank you Brian appreciate phoning in.

The twin span bridge will now be known as the Frank Davis naturally New Orleans memorial -- Argue for or against the stranger could catch a -- WW dot com. Or wing of the Los Angeles have you folded and talk about it at this point. Six the. 3% for a 37%. Are against that. I guess I'm conflict in the middle. I would prefer the the twin span and simply to be called the Frank Davis twenty. Because I don't know how many people were going to say. Well it's the I'm I have to get to the note shortly you'd take the Frank Davis central new Rawlins memorial bridge -- I just don't think that many people in the slave -- think that the name is too long and legislate. Pick between -- and here's what we're talking about a few or just Judy in in the show. After another school shooting this time -- -- a Portland Oregon do you think it's time for gun laws to be tightened in America you know every time there's a shooting. We talk about this. But at the at the end of the -- very little has ever done to the to change this what do you think it's going to take. Or should we even consider. Any change in the gun -- My question is. If we're not gonna change the gun laws if we're not going to make it more difficult for people to get these weapons if we're not going to do. More detailed background church. And you know maybe none of this will leave anything because the way things are now I truly believe a person wants to get her hands of a weapon they're going to do it. But if it's not gun laws let's let's -- -- at this point. -- for not to change the gun laws. What can we do if anything how would you view. Address this problem of what's going on where people going into our schools. And shooting a part tips. 26 -- 7866889. Lloyd's family Bob Mitchell coming right back.

Got a little time here so wanna give you or both so criminal story of the day. Today we have both of criminals. From Santa Fe, New Mexico where a group of teens. Aged 1518. Failed miserably. In an attempt -- vandalism. Armored BB guns the -- cruised through the neighborhood shooting at windshields of parked car skids. Things were going fine. Until one resident jumped in his car and took off after them he didn't attempt to pull them over in studied -- fumbled them. Speeding up when they sped up. -- now when they slowed down this so rattled the kids and they took extreme action. Now remember. There were going through the neighborhood shooting -- BB guns. They get so rattled and called 911. Not the best idea the cops caught up and then after sorting things on -- rusted them in charge them. With property damage and possession of drug paraphernalia. We've had more going on than -- shooting windows. All right let me get caught up on a couple of club. Text messages you know we're where we're talking about. After another school shooting. Do you think it's time were gun laws to be -- talk about this every time. Someone called in earlier and so they thought that. -- a lot of these kids. -- too many violent video games and that. Adds to the number of people that you know go crazy and do these things. Text message to that BS from the video game surely the scientific proof. You -- nothing more than you're opinion from me the data that does video games lead the -- I agree just you know just my opinion. And via -- opinion. If any thing or anyone's to blame parents for not knowing what's going on in their child's life. Here's a text message from a student you'll never stop gun violence because people want to kill. The only ones who were going to jail and I agree with the 100%. I'm a proponent of the Second Amendment right to bear arms are constitutionally. It's dead a year about the school shooting.
