This is their Russ castle show powered and charge my batteries specialists who all right good morning to you folks ready to go. Hillary go the week before Christmas. I don't know if everybody's. Checked out already. I don't know if everybody's kind of -- that Christmas stay in my by the way we do have some Christmas news this morning. Don't let your member I guess it was last week. I think it was a week ago as a matter of fact I had a story written by columnist what the widest and always have to be wiped. Will be against one another left is to say now we should abandon. The vision we have of Santa Claus and the symbol of senate close are you ready should be way forward. -- -- -- I'm not kidding. We'll get to that a whole lot more in the meantime whatever is on your mind defined by the way the shooter was a socialist out in Colorado. I I think there were some earlier questions about -- right there on Drudge but nevertheless those -- anything else on your mind -- advantage talk why numbers. The number in -- 2329673. Or 232. WORD. Spartanburg. 5749673. Or 574. WORD. And if you would rather you know -- the texting thing rather than you don't talk like a normal human being on the radio. -- -- -- -- Use the W or. 713071. Of all before we get to anything else. Big thank you out I went out to the what is being called the Christmas center. Bad TV convention. Senator on Friday. To deliver some stuff and to take care of this incredible. Contribution that we got there in case you missed it on Friday. A listener of ours I care and -- -- Came to the station. And David -- a four for 5000 dollars to help out the Salvation Army so I wanted to make sure. That major Melanie Davis got that first hand delivered that. And it it that they gave me the tour. And it is phenomenal I mean it's it's just for profitable what they've been able to do and everybody there all the volunteers some of them. In tears spokes. In tears because of your generosity just wanted me to relate to everybody. Then has responded. To this news that we got on this program that the Salvation Army was having a tough time this year. As a lot of other charities are true. But they wanted to me to relate to you just just their incredible gratitude and and all the blessings. I have spent about thirty minutes there are doing the tour they were explaining to me. The matter of fact major Davis even showed me up a before and after picture she was remarking it was amazing what it happened in just 24 hours. From the day that she called into this program and said they -- and difficult time to the next day so -- 24 hours. You responded and it was amazing to see it -- to be able to report that to you. But and today is the deadline to get all your stuff back. Well actually you can still you can still I think get names off the Angel tree. Through bad today but all of it has to be back absolutely by Wednesday they start distributing. On Thursday she was explained to me how that whole distribution thing works. Bottom thank you thank you thank I don't think have ever seen so many bicycles in one place in my life when I got there. There's a little army truck pulling out that the Toys for -- people came through. And they brought over all whole bunch of choice but to them why I got an email over the weekend we still have contributions coming in here at the stations all deliver those today but anyway. From the Salvation Army in all the families that are going to be helped. Two members of this audience they've just Merry Christmas to you and blessings. Eleven local a big time is 809 -- first of all to the news of the weekend we have a jihadist. Who had elaborate plans to blow up the airport out of Wichita. And we had another school shooting in Colorado and the gun control people. Of course they will exploit. Any tragedy. They're out there everywhere back away back owing. To make good control. The issue next year as we head toward the 2014. Elections the most amazing thing to me. Is. Gun control failed. What are you what are you talking about -- gun control you know Colorado. Past. And had its on the books now the governor out there are signed it. Some of the most stricter gun gun control laws in the nation have that work out. Remember it was such a big issue in cholera. That several people were recalled. Doesn't doesn't that just tell you in a very simple way bit gun control laws. Are not the issue here. But the -- Greg Evers. In the wake of the shooting out of -- high school nothing stops them all they care about is their agenda. They don't care that this poor girl is still in critical condition. They don't care -- another student shot point blank in the face no no no no no no they don't waste today they don't waste a moment. Because like many. All that matters to them. Is their agenda. Clearly. Clearly folks. Which Colorado. And boasting about to assure you remember we went through that whole debate the ridiculous things saying it. By legislators in Colorado. And people were really up in arms about it pardon upon. I mean if that is so much so that that there are counties in northern Colorado that -- they just -- that you don't on the ballot that they were gonna secede. From the state of Colorado primarily over their new gun control laws. Or house that gun control agenda working out Torre didn't stop -- Pearson. It didn't stop him from buying that shotgun. What did stop him before he could injure more than then he did. Was a good guy with a -- the sheriff's deputy. And of course the mainstream media and they're gonna leave that part out. This would have been far worse. Except you had a -- armed deputy sheriff. Who was working SA school resource officer. And what she learned what was going down on Friday. He ran through the school yelling for everybody. To get down yelling at people identified himself as an Orange County deputy sheriff. The shooter knew the deputy was in the immediate area. And and while that deputy. Did what he is supposed to do. The shooter course took his own life. You know I mean it's just. It's it's -- it's the same argument that I've made this was at a gun free zone how's that working out. How's that working out folks. Put -- those gun free zone signs. And somehow that's exposed to fool people. And then Obama on Saturday in his radio address is is it's a bright boy he's driven totally by agenda doesn't miss a beat. Marking the one year anniversary of what went down in Connecticut. And boy he he doesn't miss a beat. Talking about leading the way we've got to do more. While the mister president. If if you're really mean it if you really want kids to be saved and we've got to do more isn't it time folks. I'm asking you were realist in the radio right now isn't it time isn't it obvious. What we need to do. If we want to make kids safe and -- take down those idiotic gun free -- sides. And -- really protect our children with armed people. -- don't wait I mean that that the police responded in a miraculous turn out in Colorado. Everybody every report I read that it was amazing. How quickly they got there. But you have to think what what if somebody. Armed. Had been at that school. Right. I'm not saying that having somebody armed. -- can totally prevent this. But I'm saying it makes a heck of a lot more sense -- spectrum a lot more sense they're going through another day. In a so called gun free zone. And for the life of me seriously. I don't know how anyone could disagree with that I think that's common sense I think that's a logic. Now if you agree with what I've said I don't hear from. If you don't agree with what I've said I really wanna hear from I really wanna hear anybody out there. Explain to all of us. How continuing down this. Is absolutely. Foolish path. Will make one kid safer and -- -- These gun control laws are about nothing but politics and agenda they're not about making our kids safer. Oh by the way because -- An old Lotta people email me and heard people questioning earlier. The big gunman. That was responsible for all of this. And arapahoe high school in Colorado. Described by fellow students as a socialist. This is courtesy MSNBC. This is -- mark. A student at a wrap our whole high school. Here's what another student had to say about it. Name crowd and being a social. He was very proud. An outspoken on his political views while until she's just who have. The economic club more economic equality. So Larry ago it was about. Economic inequality. He was very quote -- -- quote he was very proud. Of being a socialist. And it's amazing what the media don't even the Denver Post. When they had the quote from the student they they sanitized it said he was just in the very very opinion dated student. The only about that socialist. Both -- and it's an amazing thing right here Christmas time anyway joys in Spartanburg hi Joseph. A process I don't know that I'm doing OK Merry Christmas to you Merry Christmas to you. All thought I am gay mere news that -- -- -- enforcement gun all they have on the books now we have a lot of film even people who are not all about the bygone right. And they're not prosecute them what's -- What kind of important don't. Imports bug me at all by an act out like it's all about me you know game on top of space and everybody's. Of course it is what what else could a pos and plus this kid according to reports. He not only bought the pump action shotgun. In Colorado with these strict gun control laws he had plenty of extra shells he reportedly had several Molotov cocktails and a machete. Well why don't we have -- it is improper means those didn't stop there aren't to my knowledge we've had warned. So it's all in my recent -- happened. Then I would. -- I think I think we're very blessed here because of what we -- here in South Carolina had this idiotic gun free zone because psychology. And and none of the liberals can explain it they really cannot explain it they just wanna go out there and now that and hope that people believed it. Isn't this proof positive that gun free zones don't work. And also who wants this -- did confiscate everybody's weapons. Pollard got a bill is upgrade our huge black market out here are real people who want them -- -- -- ground rule or -- by their Muslim. And and scary all I have been better when import struck walls and courage probably 10% of -- in the country. What makes people -- picked up there will be a lot of gunk coming in here illegally -- -- from. It's the same group of people that actually think that the government -- a controlling our healthcare is a good idea I mean foolish foolish foolish. And a gender driven thank you Joey live local update time is 819. It is 826. Glad you're with us here live -- local. News radio WORT 1063 Ross castle show. -- of our Ingles advantage talk lines open for whatever you like to talk about green built through three to. 9673. Spartanburg 5749673. WORD. Text line number -- 71307. Another shooting at a Friday afternoon Colorado at a school out there in a state that had recently passed. Very controversial gun control laws so much so there was a recall vote. An and just the facts of the case I think prove a point that. Conservatives like myself have made for for a long long time this guy had no criminal record. He purchased a gun legally it was a shotgun not an assault rifle. He purchased the shells even in a state like Colorado with very restrictive laws. I mean no background checks are bands. On magazines and how many -- -- put him there. Or booked a blip calls excessively dangerous guns would have prevented this. So when we hear all these speeches and how the left -- has on this opportunity it just reveals. Who they truly are folks exploiting tragedy aren't you sick of bad and doesn't this just again make the point. Big gun free zones are stupid 'cause they don't work they invite this kind of tragedy. -- on a cell phone I joke. And don't dress and around the merry Christmas Eve or Christmas due to. There a year I don't reliability gun free -- knowing all along that benefits strong. There's Tikrit itself. I'm auto shop around and updated. In general are alert has delivered according -- percent -- -- or you're. Out there they hit it in. Stable just don't understand the fact they're a big gun itself. Maybe the weapon loaded the webpart roll out worked yesterday when they signed it. Candidate and an air base they've ever done let's say did this country's -- low maintenance. -- an invitation. There -- crook. It's like -- big flashing signs saying come owner and -- what -- you want whatever is in your sick mind. Come on do what you do what you want because there's not going to be anybody here to stop -- until the police get here. Well. -- They responded amaze you may be very very quickly here and and still look what this guy I was able to do. And we need armed school personnel every day. That children are better. We need them there. We don't need just one we need them there we need teachers who across the country you've -- I'll volunteer teachers who already have a CWP. That there's absolutely. I think a stronger case for that way of thinking today. Then there ever has been. How many more children have to die in a gun free zone. The for the the left can it -- just be told to go shut up obviously they don't have the answer to this thank you Joseph 829. They're Russ castle show. -- and charge my batteries specialists coming about 835 Merry Christmas to you and yours folks here the week before Christmas rush castle show. Even in real keeping it local -- advantage talk line numbers seem very -- 2329673. Spartans -- 5749673. And the text line 71307. Yeah well we think about it. Christmas. We at a mall shooting in New Jersey over the weekend and of course. Our thoughts and prayers turn to Colorado another school shooting around the nation but especially in the city of Centennial, Colorado Americans are offering prayers for seventeen year old. -- Davis. Davis was critically wounded while sitting in the library of rap -- high school on Friday. Shocked by eighteen year old Carl Pearson officials say Pearson was popular a good student and had no history of nets will -- It's reported Pearson's intended target was Tracy Murphy a teacher and head of the school's debate team with whom Pearson had a grudge. Murphy escaped unharmed in pierce and ended up taking his own life it's Robert Ray Fox News. Yeah that poor girl fighting for a life. I mean folks and then you don't even. It's amazing. How the left reacts again exploiting that tragedy. They'd immediately. Go on the offensive for more gun control. -- gun free zones working out for -- to Colorado just passed. Incredibly restrictive gun control laws those -- books didn't stop this guy. Didn't stop him. There was a recall in Colorado over this my goodness. How much more proof do you need. The gun control is strictly an agenda issue. It's not about school safety it's not about the safety of your children those who would advocates locally. Statewide and nationally. That we need to continue. Gun free zones are -- and I'll just say it. Those people have they don't have any. Idea. About the meaning of the word safe to. They are ideologically driven. If you talk to members of both local school districts are politicians. Who still would go out there today again. And and refuse to face the truth about the idiocy of gun free zones. Those people need to be kicked out they need to be fired. There's no better than the gun control advocates who were out there yesterday saying oh -- so disappointed this year to tighten firearms laws. This is Fox News. They vowed to continue their fight including spending millions on candidates in next year's elections. They're comets come one year after sandy hook. -- twenty students and six adults. Proved that gun free zones don't work. And then it happened again. In -- in Colorado on Friday. Mark Kelly. Husband Gabby Giffords quote we get disappointed. He co founded the gun control group Americans for responsible solutions -- his wife. He's a retired astronaut navy captain told FOX News Sunday yesterday. The defeat of the so called bipartisan. Mentioned to me senate gun bill was quote not a good day. But says his group's plans to spend 25. Million dollars. In next year's elections. On on gun control candidates. Now. -- least Chris Wallace had two people yesterday. -- also had Larry Pratt on now Larry Pratt was just in the upstate last week. He's the executive director of Gun Owners of America. And here's a little bit of Chris Wallace and Larry Pratt yesterday on FOX News Sunday. Do you see the failure. To pass. Any new major gun legislation on the congressional level and not much in the state level. Do you see that as a victory for gun rights. Well Chris we're not really going to be able talk about a victory until we get rid of the laws that prohibit people from having guns to protect themselves in schools and and other places. Every one of our mass murders in our country has occurred. In places were guns were prohibited. Did you hear that. -- guns were prohibited. Is released things are going on and there's. There's a simpler way to make the case. That's how stupid that is live local update time is 839. IMF is present in different spelling facing include China air bases if -- about Taylor's South Carolina -- my friends family loved ones. Hey Hugh Kelly you and I happy holidays. God bless our soldiers age 4515. Away from nine. So I hope you had a good weekend everybody welcome into the Monday before the week of Christmas -- advantage -- lines are jammed right now as soon as the one has they're saying. You can grab the lining -- village 2329673. Spartanburg 574. 9673. WO or detect like number 71307. RE were always been -- high. Good morning glory I'm doing okay how about yourself come on you know a normal person dispute think logically something. Doesn't work then you say well let's try something else right okay so obviously the country's own things not working not safe. Look at the Israelis but can the so mid to late seventies the terrorists started. Are targeting the -- Israeli schools. And serve like armed. Not just a teacher here and there and I armed every teacher every -- -- got leaders in Europe crystal. And -- and many don't have that problem over there wonder why. Well it's easy to figure out you know even. That that most of them out -- that there's always going to be a mentally ill person that I guess goes in with the intent like this get out in Colorado I think he clearly had -- to anyone to go out. In a so called blaze of glory. And I think the truth be known probably in his mind he always -- who's gonna commit suicide after he did this. But but for -- is -- is that the bad guys that they don't get shot. They want to get shot even if they are. Even if they don't know if guns are at the premises they plan to robber or whatever. They just don't wanna get shot is so it just logically stands they're going to be drawn to places. Where they know. There's very little chance of any that anybody's gonna confronted with a gun. You know national Apollo Group our lawmakers they think that there's solution to the problem is aware will make inaugural ball right but. If I'm not told people this video that pair of the no conceal weapons arms. Along diplomat there is being aired on polish side of that metals. There. Gonna do you any good eight. Matter fact it if you just think about it if if -- guys going in to rob a place if he sees the sign on the door. He says says man. I I'd get away with this I can get away with this there's not going to be anybody and there are. That won't even attempt to stop me it is the perception they get from those it and it just goes back -- they -- talked about for decades on this program we've got to get past this perception. That guns make society more dangerous. It's it's not guns guns make societies safer. And and build them. We've been fighting an uphill battle on this all go I just read over the weekend. Then if you invested in the gun company stocks in 20s13 you -- what about -- pretty well. -- so it but that the left never stops and these activists say they're gonna make it this big issue gun control big issue of next year's elections. Thank you Ron -- bill quickly in -- hi bill. -- are you Idenix. I got a question what I walked into a plate and it -- beat no concealed weapon. But on the door. Don't need this need to be an insurance and reliability is she young people brought this up many many times that means that they -- At that facility or bad stories taking their responsibility. For my safety. While I'm more on their -- -- -- so -- adults put the ball you know restore honor pet insurance against people there walking equipment ball. It's gonna take a walk through somebody's still at school court county when -- -- our daughter is shot. And they and the fish bowl did not take the precautions to protect. That people inside that store the facility. -- interconnect it's got to be insurance because that they have the panic insurance are found then and -- and the historical I know I wanted to charts well let that let. Particularly its schools I will say this if if they're going to be lecture us about being concerned about gun safety. Then enough with the gun free zone stuff that I mean those those are put those two arguments side by side. Just don't make any sense to me and the latest -- shooting proves that thank you -- -- 49. They didn't -- And talk to Ralph. -- I don't ask don't well. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year with good opiate family. Thank you -- very much. Our lawyers told you about those people. Always with this health care thing you can party gun control and their health care. Well -- -- -- -- you cannot tell you. That if you don't -- you -- -- you're not gonna get health care right and people don't realize that. Right and they've imagined the predicament that puts people and some people some people and not me. I don't know either -- I don't mean either I'll take my chances are not given up my gun. Your right rest you know and every. Good to have people have to say about this note that this that's -- result is a lot of garbage. So I just don't think that yeah I mean we've had far too many cases of these shootings. And you know I I'd. Trial always to make the point and in a lot of people seem to understand it but yet there are some people who I mean I got this text Ralph. How all -- how often would you accept mass school shootings. Before you would support reasonable gun control once a month once a week removing gun free zones will happen when pigs fly now is this think of this. This first and actually is asking me how often I would accept mass school shootings before I would support whatever their. The idea of reasonable gun control list. I mean we have gun free zones the question. Is back at the left. How how how how long are you gonna continue. To accept mass school shootings. In your precious gun free zones before you wake up and put somebody there with a gun to protect these children. That's right you're you're out of the sunrise or groups that never game up. They never give up well you happy new year. Well thank you sir some of the other text messages. -- what is the penalty for a license to see WP holder carrying their gone. In a business where they no guns sign in the window personally -- your shop elsewhere. I don't know but my sense of it if something were to go down. Or or even if it does go down if somehow you were caught. -- I would think detector license away. But I don't know. You know. I don't know for certain. Ross just asked folks would you put up a sign in front of your house. That says quote there are no guns here. Of course not then why would you put one in front of a school. Yes that's exactly right. -- I was in Haywood -- this weekend with my gun on. And I actually looked at all those people in their thinking. How they would be sitting ducks if some maniac came in and decided to start shooting. I prayed Ross that if it happened I would be in the position. To stop it. Yeah. No kidding. And again we said this for what how many people are doing that every single day.
