In the most epic, jam-packed and heated rant ever produced on this show, the host Jordan completely tears apart US Senator Joe Machin for his recent statement. Machin said to reporters that Due Process of Law is “the problem with security” in this country and is to blame for “killing us”. Machin went on to recommend a five year waiting period after being investigated, whether charged with a crime or not, before having basic civil rights reinstated.
Machin is not along in his calls for the destruction of the Bill of Rights following the Orlando shooting. Other government officials, social media figures, celebrities and pundits have advocated for restricting or even abolishing the first, second, fourth, fifth, sixth and eighth amendments to the Bill of Rights.
Moving on to more post Orlando news, it has been reported and verified by the FBI that Omar Mateen tried to purchase level 3 body armor and bulk ammo 4 -5 weeks prior to the shooting. The shop refused to sell him the items and called the FBI directly. However, because shop workers had no information on Mateen other than description, the FBI had no way of tracing the report to Mateen. This highlights the fact that the security apparatus is in place and is functioning properly. The problem is that when someone is willing to die to accomplish something, it is very difficult to stop them. People need to come to realize this fact: no amount of rights restrictions will keep you safe.
