JEANINE PIRRO (CO-HOST): One of the things that we talked about yesterday was with the COVID lockdowns, kids in schools, now go kind of like from sixth grade to ninth grade because they missed two years, and they are emotionally not mature enough and socially. But now, they're in a position where they're with older kids. I kind of tie that together with the fact that since 2018, we are now seeing the mass shooters, the age of the mass shooters, younger, in Uvalde and -- is it -- not Buffalo, is it Buffalo? Yes in Buffalo. 

WILL CAIN (CO-HOST): Parkland was nineteen as well.

PIRRO: Yes. And nineteen.

CAIN: You're absolutely right, Judge. If you are honest and sincere about trying to address this problem, you would be addressing all of the multifactorial contributors that you and Greg and Kellyanne are pointing to. Guns are but one part of that equation. Mental health as you've mentioned, isolated, social media, first-person video shooter games, Big Pharma -- all of our kids are being prescribed drugs at absolutely record rates. And you're going to tell me none of this is contributing to this uptick? And yes, younger shooters, but the focus has to be simply on the gun.
