... Thank you, thank you, to a beautiful lady ... that was driving on Highway 80 West Wednesday, January the 9th. The time about 11:30 near Harvey's. ... I don't know you. ... And you don't know me. ... But you got my attention that I had left my billfold ... on the trunk of my car. ... Without your help and kindness, this would have been a crisis for me. ... God watches over us ... and desires that we are livin' our lives bein' a blessin' and showin' kindness to others. May God continue to bless you.
To all of the callers ... who are using the urban areas - specifically they mentioned Chicago --. as examples of why ... not banning guns is not effective. ... That is the area that ... has the restrictive gun bans already. ... And the result is the criminals still have guns. The legal people don't have guns. And that's where the violence is. You're making the case for ... no restrictions on gun laws.
Help me understand the logic of this: watching two hours of violence in a movie ... has no influence on our behavior. But a 30-second Super Bowl ad is worth $3.8 million ... because it will make us run out and buy a product.
... For all you people worried about your ... amendment rights and your infringement ... and your protection and all that. What about God's law that says, 'Thou shalt not kill?'
The NRA is only interested in profit and insensitivity to life. ... Also, no one seems to be interested in the fact ... that the Second Amendment allows guns for a legitimate militia ... and not individuals. Let us be satisfied with our National Guard and proud of them ... and stick to simple rifles for hunting. ... It is a terrible myth ... that the government wants to take away simple ... hunting ... rifles. Those who keep saying that ... are involved in absolute lies.
