Larry Pratt is the executive director of Gun Owners of America. He is the author of 'On the Firing Line: Essays in the Defense of Liberty.' Larry has also held elective office in the state legislature of Virginia, serving in the House of Delegates.

Yesterday the U.S. Senate voted 53-46 in favor of eliminating the funding to Planned Parenthood. However, this vote fell short of the necessary 60 votes needed to end debate. Larry commented by noting that he feels Mitch McConnell has behaved in an appalling fashion. He feels McConnell is 'all in' for whatever the Democrats want. In fact, as Jim noted, McConnell had the opportunity to bring an amendment about that would have allowed the funding elimination to pass with just a simple majority. For that reason, Larry feels that McConnell should get an annual award from Planned Parenthood.

Regarding the main topic, Jim reported yesterday that a Navy official told Fox News that punishing a Lieutenant Commander who used an unauthorized weapon to fire back at the Chattanooga gunman who shot and killed 5 service members could not be completely ruled out. Larry thinks that pressure being placed upon the Navy is having a positive effect and that charges may not be pressed against this man.

Larry also commented on another report Jim presented yesterday about an Obama administration plan to ban Social Security beneficiaries from owning guns if they lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs. Larry cautioned listeners that if someone is tired of doing their own paperwork and decides to have someone else write their checks, under this administration's plan, this could set the individual up for a visit from the ATF.

Can the Obama administration initiate this without congressional approval? According to Larry, President Obama realizes that the Republican leadership is absolutely unwilling to confront him since that might involve a government slowdown or perhaps shutting down one or more departments and that terrifies those running the U.S. Congress Republican caucuses. So he doesn't see any change coming until we see some more people like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in the Senate and their counterparts in the House.

Jim also had Larry comment on the following:

--The push by the Obama administration to initiate mental health screenings and if there is a 'tie-in' to gun control.
--President Obama feels distressed and stymied over his inability to get gun control passed through Congress and he's going to 'double-down' on these efforts during his remaining time in office.
--The potential rewriting of regulation that could give the State Department wide ranging power to monitor and control gun related speech on the Internet.
--Senator Chuck Schumer and his new, proposed legislation that could change the background check system to keep violent criminals, domestic abusers and the mentally ill from too easily obtaining guns and using them to kill.
--The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously on a measure that would prohibit the use of firearm magazines that hold more than ten rounds.
--What should people be looking for as it relates to presidential candidates and where they stand on Second Amendment issues?
--Does the Bible talk about self-defense?

One month ago, 5 lawyers on the Supreme Court created a constitutional right to so-called same-sex marriage. The four that dissented in essence were issuing a warning that trouble is coming. The result? Religious liberty is under attack.

Joining Jim to discuss this was Mat Staver. Mat is the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, an international nonprofit, litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family.

Mat began by commenting on undercover video footage featuring a high-level Planned Parenthood representative. The organization is now backtracking to try and explain comments that point to the alleged practice of dissection and body parts trafficking. Mat believes they should not only be defunded at the state and federal levels but criminal prosecution charges should be brought about as well.

The first Monday after June 26th, county clerks were on the firing line because they were to provide same-sex marriage licenses. He described one instance in Kentucky where the ACLU is not only asking the clerk to issue the licenses, but for her to face punitive, monetary damages.

Mat also described the plight of David Wells. Dave is an ordained minister and volunteer in the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice. He had his volunteer credentials revoked because he wouldn't sign a statement promising to refrain from ever telling any of the juvenile inmates that homosexuality is sinful.

Discussion then moved to Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin who explained in comments on MSNBC that the 1st Amendment right to observe deeply held religious beliefs doesn't extend far beyond one's institution of faith. In other words, you can believe in one-man, one-woman marriage while in your church, just don't express that outside in public life.

Mat responded by noting that this shows her ignorance of the 1st Amendment and the free exercise of religion. He went on to explain that the 1st Amendment applies not only to churches and synagogues but to individuals as well. In fact, the 1st Amendment protects the individual from the government should they want to intrude on the free exercise of religion.

This Crosstalk also looked at the call for churches throughout America to lose their tax exempt status due to the Supreme Court ruling; the religious capitulation taking place nationwide; the University of California's offering of six choices for gender identity; downtown Reno replaced the American flag with the LGBT pride flag; executive action by the President to expand the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include LGBT individuals and more.

Numerous concerns have come forth concerning the agreement reached between the United States and Iran over Iran's nuclear technological goals and development. In the aftermath of the agreement it was learned that many 'side deals' were being made in order to get parties to agree to the overall deal.

In hearings yesterday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged that Iran might use the weapons obtained through this new agreement to kill both Americans and Israelis.

Joining Jim to provide greater perspective on this issue was David Rubin. David is the former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, in the region of Samaria, known to most of the world as the West Bank. He is the founder and president or Shiloh Israel Children's Fund. He is the author of four books including 'The Islamic Tsunami' and his latest, 'Sparks From Zion.'

David has called this agreement a disaster for Israel and for the free world. He believes this because he feels that Israel could be wiped out in a minute by a nuclear bomb due to the fact that Israel is a nation smaller than the state of New Jersey. He noted that if Iran has a nuclear weapon, he believes they will use it against them and that they have clearly stated such intentions.

Regarding this being a threat to the free world, David indicated that Iran is working on long-range, intercontinental ballistic missiles while they work on a nuclear bomb to put on those missiles.

David went through a few of the aspects of the agreement including:

--No surprise inspections are allowed. Iran must be given at least 24 days notice.
--The Bushehr nuclear reactor and Parchin military installation are not mentioned in the agreement, yet according to David, these sites have been known for covert nuclear activity.
--The immediate removal of sanctions.

David believes this agreement will create a massive arms race in the Middle East. If the Iranians are successful in building a nuclear bomb, other nations in the region will want their own, particularly the Sunni Muslim nations who are concerned about Shiite Muslim Iran.

Review this Crosstalk and you'll hear David comment on a recent controversial remark about the nuclear agreement expressed by presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee; a hidden detail that promises Western support and training to protect Iranian nuclear facilities from either attack or sabotage and much more.

Jim opened this edition of Crosstalk by noting how many parents will be going through the routine of shopping for clothing, school supplies and paying the pertinent fees related to the start of a new school year. Unfortunately, many school districts are working feverishly to destroy the values that are being taught at home and the church and in some instances they are even undermining parent-child relationships.

Now that same-sex marriage has been deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court, the indoctrination is only going to intensify. Joining Jim to discuss this was Randy Thomasson. Randy is a veteran pro-family leader and president of Their organization stands strong for moral virtues for the common good.

Last evening, the national executive board of the Boy Scouts of America enacted a new policy allowing homosexual leaders. Randy responded by saying that if you love your boys, get them out of the Boy Scouts because there have been molestations backed by statistics taken from 1947 to 2005. 100% of them were done by homosexuals that were inside the organization.

On another front, Jim and Randy discussed an urgent alert sent out that was designed for California pastors and ministry workers. The basis for his concern is an LGBT studies course at a school of the arts in San Francisco, a school where 30% of the student body is alleged to be gay. A liberal teacher at the school has partnered with a homosexual activist to teach young people how to be homosexual activists.

Randy went on to talk about 10 sexual indoctrination laws impacting children in every California K-12 public school. 8 of the 10 are mandatory. The other 2 are up to the district, the principle or the teacher. These laws teach children to support and embrace homosexual, bisexual and transsexual behavior as well as heterosexual fornication.

This crosstalk covers other aspects of this indoctrination onslaught as well as the options you have to properly educate your children in the midst of it all.
