Today, Dom started off the show talking about the tale of two cities, specifically their leadership. After the horrific events we saw unfold in Dayton and El Paso over the weekend, the mayors of both cities have taken opposite stances on how they’ll deal with Trump during his Wednesday visit to the respective cities. El Paso Mayor Dee Margo made it clear that he will meet with the President, in an effort to help his city’s citizens. When asked whether or not he’s aware of the opposition of Trump helping out, Margo said, “The President is coming out, I will meet with the President, and I guess with people with lots of time on their hands, I’ll deal with their emails and their phone calls.” Mayor of Dayton, Nan Whaley, took a different approach. While she is indeed meeting with the President, she encouraged protests, stating, “[Trump>’s made his bed and he’s got to lie in it. His rhetoric has been painful for many in our community.” Also, Dom again explains why he’d be against any red flag laws, and Dom reads a portion of the Dayton shooter’s manifesto, where he stated that the shooting was not influenced by Trump.

Then, the always hilarious Ernie Troiano, Mayor of Wildwood, NJ, joined the Dom Giordano Program to discuss Ocean City’s newest effort in combating… seagulls. Aggressive seagulls have been pestering shore-goers for as long as the shore towns have existed, but Ocean City has offered a new solution in an effort to cut down on annoying seagulls… birds of prey.  The goal is to scare seagulls from landing on the boardwalk, in fear of being attacked or eaten, in an effort to make them less dependent on people food. Dom explains how he thinks this will go horribly wrong. Also, Troiano gives an update on the Kate Smith situation, and reports to Dom how his shore town has fared economically this summer.

Finally, Dom is joined by Senator Pat Toomey. In an effort to curb mass shootings, Toomey has been working with President Trump and other senators to put forth a bill that focuses on ‘red flag laws’. Toomey says that it’s just common sense to pass a law that would address such an issue, and reinforced that the purpose of the law is to make it as difficult as possible for people that have no legal rights to a firearm to obtain one. He wants to make it clear that, if you’re mentally ill or a criminal, you do not have the right to own a firearm.
