Transcript by Newsy**** BY MALLORY PERRYMAN You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy A week after the Tucson tragedy - the Sunday shows had to decide whether or not to continue what has become a national conversation about violent rhetoric, gun control, and mental health. Every show touched on the hot button issues, but CNN’s State of the Union and ABC’s This Week took it a step further. Candy Crowley devoted her entire show to the issue of mental health- and Christiane Amanpour hosted a town hall meeting in Arizona. One big issue up for discussion- gun control. How did a guy like Jared Loughner legally buy a gun and ammo? Although it’s unlikely Congress will pass any serious limitations on gun ownership, two Democratic members of Congress say, it’s time to consider it. SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): “Like all the other rights, it’s not absolute. First Amendment: we have laws against pornography. You can’t scream ‘Fire!’ falsely in a crowded theater. There should be limits on gun laws as well.” (NBC) REP. RAUL GRIJALVA (D-AZ): “We have to talk about the issue of access and that’s not undercutting the Second Amendment at all. And then we have to talk about munitions, magazines, the caliber. These are all fair discussions to have now.” But Republican Senator Tom Coburn says- restrictions only affect law-abiding citizens. SEN. TOM COBURN (R-OK): “The people who are going to commit a crime or do something crazy aren’t going to pay attention to the laws in the first place.” (NBC) Finally- CBS’ Bob Schieffer calls the issue- a matter of common sense. BOB SCHIEFFER (Host, Face the Nation): “But if we can find a way to bar minors from buying alcohol, if we can keep those with bad eyesight from driving, if the army can find a way to keep Loughner from joining, can we not find a way to keep the mentally deranged from buying weapons?” Another Sunday talking point- mental health. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says, Loughner fell through the cracks of a broken mental health system. FMR. MAYOR RUDY GIULIANI (R-NY): “He was being told to be treated. People were saying he was bizarre. People were saying he was frightening. A teacher wouldn’t be with him without a guard being there. Gosh, you would think at some point along the way, he’d have been evaluated.” On ABC’s special edition of This Week, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a friend of Gabby Giffords, agrees. REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (D-FL): “This is not a gap in law enforcement. We have a tremendous gap in coverage for mental health care. On CNN, Congresswoman Grace Napolitano says- enough talk- let’s do something about mental health policy. REP. GRACE NAPOLITANO (D-CA): “I think we need to begin to press upon the state and federal governments the urgency of this. Because every time there’s a tragedy, there’s a lot of hoopla for a month or two but then it dies down, goes away, everybody forgets about it and we’re on to the next thing.” And summing up her thoughts on the special edition of State of the Union, host Candy Crowley says- she hopes the show did some good. CANDY CROWLEY (Host, State of the Union): “This is a person who suffered from a mental illness and affected the lives of hundreds of people…We thought it was time to look at mental illness and treatments, what’s available. An hour wasn’t long enough but I really loved the show.” Finally- our running tally of who’s in and who’s out of the 2012 presidential race- Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty tells Fox News, he might be IN...but he’s not sure how far he’ll go. FMR. GOV. TIM PAWLENTY (R-MN): "For somebody like me, you have to do very well - win - or do very well in Iowa…My name ID outside of Minnesota isn't very high. It was about 15 percent about a year ago amongst Republicans, and it’s not particularly high outside of Northern Iowa.” You can see all our coverage of the issues the media focused on in the aftermath of the Tucson shooting here: Rep. Giffords Shot in Tucson, Ariz.

Transcript by Newsy**** BY CHARLIE MCKEAGUE You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy Less than an hour after Alabama Governor Robert Bentley’s inauguration speech – he started a ruckus with comments about non-Christians. While there’s no video of his comments - you can be sure someone wrote them down. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has the governor’s words - and her take. MADDOW (reading Bentley): “Now I will have to say that, if we don’t have the same daddy, we’re not brothers and sisters. So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister.” MADDOW: “And if you’re someone who is not a Christian, you have now been served notice by Alabama’s new governor, again first day at the new statehouse, Alabama is not for you. Happy civil rights commemoration everybody, please leave the state.” The comments spread through Twitter and the blogosphere like chicken pox in a preschool – with the major networks catching it as well. Religious leaders had strong reaction to the comments – the American Atheists Communication Director was quoted by WAAY… “If you don't understand how insulting and degrading it is, he's basically saying that we're second-class citizens, ... he puts [Christians] on a higher level than every other religious person in Alabama.” Others were concerned about the First Amendment – it came off to some as though Bentley was suggesting non-Christians convert to Christianity. Fox News has a quote from a spokesperson from The Anti-Defamation League. “…he is dancing dangerously close to a violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which forbids government from promoting the establishment of any religion,” Bentley’s comments did not come during his inauguration – but, rather AFTER at a local Baptist church. A contributor to Everyday Christian says that makes a big difference. “[Bentley] was in a Baptist Church. … He had every reason to believe he was talking to a room full of people who are like-minded. Just because he was elected to public office does not mean that he must abandon his faith. If the comments were made during the inauguration speech on the front steps of the capitol building that would be another matter.” Alabama governors have a history of controversial comments. In 1986, Gov. Guy Hunt made a comment about “jewing down” the price of an item – and Gov. Fob James mocked an ape to protest against the teaching of evolution in public schools. The New York Magazine says these comments are becoming the norm. “It may seem outrageous, but making minorities feel unwelcome on your first day in office is actually an official responsibility of the governor of Alabama.” So what do you think? Crazy christian? Or a good guy who let one slip? Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy

BY DERON DALTON ANCHOR JENNY MECKLES You're watching multisource U S news analysis from Newsy Teacher Natalie Munroe’s blogging past seems to have caught up with her. A year ago, Munroe blogged her students were “out of control” and “disengaged, lazy whiners.” Now KYW-TV reports -- she is suspended with pay and fighting to keep her job as an English teacher outside of Philadelphia. Todd Quinones: “ ‘Frightfully dim,’ ‘Rat-like,’ ‘and concerned that your kid is going to come in one day, and open fire on the school...,’ ‘I hate your kid,’ ‘Seems smarter than she actually is.’ A district official tells me the Central Buck East School English teacher admitted to writing about her students on her own personal blog.” Munroe disguised her blog under -- of all things -- the name “Natalie M.” but she never revealed which school she was referring to in her blog posts. When the blog was discovered, Munroe said she had no regrets -- saying she stands by her comments. Philly2Philly praises that. “Finally a teacher has spoken up about this travesty in a public manner, and she should be praised. Instead, Natalie Munroe may possibly be fired over the blog post, which would be a violation of her First Amendment rights.” And the blog The Stir agrees, saying teachers don’t forfeit their rights. “They may be government employees, but public school teachers have the same rights as any other U.S. citizen. They're still entitled to their freedom of speech and self-expression.” But Long Island Press’ Missy Yates points out a possible double standard here -- a teacher’s comments should not be found online. “If you are a teacher, like Natalie Munroe, you probably shouldn’t bash your students on the Internet, although students do it all the time on sites like Rate My Professor.” ABC’s Robin Roberts questions Munroe’s comments. How would Munroe feel if a teacher referred to her kids with such harsh words? Robin Roberts: “There is no other way to say this, I hate your kid.’ If someone wrote that about your child, how do you think you would respond to something like that -- a teacher out of all the people saying that? Natalie Munroe: Well again, I was writing it not about anyone specific. They were caricatures of students that I had over the years -- things that I would say if we weren’t limited.” Munroe says her comments were taken out of context and her blog was never meant for mass consumption. Munroe is currently under investigation, and the blog has since been taken down. So what do you think? Are Munroe’s blog posts appropriate for a teacher or was she out of line for her comments about her students?

BY LIZ REED You're watching multisource US news analysis from Newsy A federal judge just gave kids the OK to “heart” boobies loud and proud -- The popular “I heart boobies” breast cancer awareness bracelets are banned in middle schools nationwide, but the ruling, which follows a freedom of speech lawsuit, may change everything. Reporter: “The girls had to sue under the First Amendment to wear these bracelets with that phrase at school.” Girl: “I’ve never encountered any disruptions at school.” Reporter: “So you think the school exaggerated a little?” Girl “I think so.” (Video: KYW) The judge supported the Pennsylvania middle schoolers, saying the phrase is not “lewd” or “obscene” and that the school never proved the bracelets were disruptive. But ABC-affiliate KNXV thinks the breast cancer cause is being overlooked in this case. Reporter 1: “A lot of people are concerned that this is trivializing the whole issue of breast cancer because you have young boys wearing these things, and they’re not wearing them because they are concerned about the cause, they’re wearing them because they think it’s funny.” Reporter 2: ”Right and some people think it’s not right to put “boobies,” or sexualize it, I think that’s the word that’s been used.” WNAC in Providence also wonders -- if kids can tote the word boobies, what other shenanigans will they try next? “I think it’s a bad idea, I really do. Because it opens up a can of worms. If you let them do that, then they’ll say they want to support, you know, causes to raise awareness for cancer of the testicles. You know what I mean? Then they start wearing, “I heart Cajones.” It’s silly!” But Care2 civil rights blog maintains the ruling will set a precedent for similar students’ rights cases and say school officials aren’t getting the big picture. “The ruling is a clear victory for free speech advocates and for those seeking a lighthearted way to raise awareness of breast health... while the administration may have a legitimate interest in creating and enforcing a dress code, this seems like a pretty clear case of administration over-reaction.” The judge’s ruling allows Easton Middle School students to bypass the ban for now, but the school board has said they want to appeal the case. Could boobies make it all the way to the Supreme Court? Weigh in on our comments section. Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos for US video news in your stream.
