GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): This is what drives me crazy, OK. Apology to biker gangs everywhere, but imagine if there were chapters of a biker gang, let's say it was Hell's Angels, all throughout the country and there was trouble coming from those gangs. No one would have a problem surveilling them. So we're giving an exemption based on a religion which, to me, is absurd. I don't care if it's Islam, I don't care if it's Mormons, Scientology, Catholicism. If there's something emanating from certain chapters that is dangerous, you receive no special exemption because you are a religion. That is baloney, because that enables anybody to start a religion in order to create some kind of criminal activity. It's wrong. Nuts.
