12:03 am
texas, where a teenager opened fire, killing 19 children, and 2 teachers on tuesday. more than a dozen others are still being treated in hospital. we say the 18 year old gunman barricaded them in a classroom and began shooting with semi automatic rifle. officers eventually managed to break into the classroom and kill him. well, people involved have expressed shock, frustration, and sadness, or tuesday shooting. my family is good, but my town isn't paying you know, much all the painters. i mean like i said, these kids were, there were always angels. yesterday thinking their wings. you know, this town is heartbroken, devastating. maybe a little pressure on somebody to change the laws. so gone those top the guns don't get in the hands of children and mentally disturbed people. i mean, it's the same cry. we been crying all alone. will texas governor greg abbott says
12:04 am
the gunman posted on social media about his plan shortly before the attack. and he was speaking underneath conference on the shooting, which was interrupted by the democratic nominee for the governor job be till rourke accused habit of doing nothing on gun crime. he responded by saying it was time for healing. not for politics. their family members who are crying as we speak, their family members whose hearts are broken. there's no words that anybody shouting can come up here and do anything. to hear those broken hearts. we all, every texan, every american has a responsibility where we need to focus, not on ourselves and our agendas. we need to focus on the healing and hope that we can provide to those who have suffered unconscionable damage to their lives and
12:05 am
loss of life. he talked about that this was evil. the only thing evil is what he continues to do to the people of this state. he says this was unpredictable, it was totally predictable. and i predict this will continue to happen when you continue to have a governor who will not stand up for the people of texas. his only interest is the gun lobby. he scheduled to speak at the n. r a convention. this friday. while we have correspondents live in ovalo, the texas and the white house, let's start with john henry, who's near the rope elementary school in evolving. we had a little bit about what happened did not press conference earlier, john, but, but what else do we learn? what we learned from new details, we learned from governor abbott that the gunman shot his grandmother in the face before leaving the house and then posted to
12:06 am
a friend on facebook that he had done so, and that he was on his way to an elementary school. and at that school were told he used to 133 rounds. the end result was that $21.00. people were dead. 2 of them, teachers and the gunman himself, that there was some speculation that the gunman might have shot himself. but we were told in that news conference that he was killed by police who entered that room. other than that, what we know is that the police are still treating us as a crime scene. you can see the tape here. we're not allowed to go past that, that is the school playground in the distance. and people have come here to bring flowers into try to show their appreciation of those people who have been lost after they weren't allowed to go beyond that tape. it could simply give it to the police. so what, what we are still waiting to hear is more on the motive. what drove the gunman to come here to rob elementary school? he was a high school dropout, bullied for speaking with a lisp,
12:07 am
and apparently had problems with other kids. we don't know a lot more or what the specific motivation for this active violence was. and john, you've covered a number of school shootings over the years. i guess it must be like you're witnessing the same cycle repeats itself. do you, do you have any hope listening to bide and tonight with that very strong call to action and listening to be to the things could change. i think we've heard that hope over and over again, year after year in the 20 years since that columbine shooting in 1999. at that time, there was this sense that a killing by a student inside of his school killing many of their classmates, was so horrifying that something had to be done by it, that the white house in congress would have to act. but in the 20 intervening years, what we've seen is that it's actually easier to get a gun the requirement to carry
12:08 am
a concealed weapon that the licenses have gotten easy. in some cases they've been dropped. in some cases, you don't need a license to carry a weapon at all in many of these states. they've done that over the past 20 years on a state by state basis. but when it comes to congress, the thing we have learned is that in 20 years of mass school shootings like this when they have done nothing on hanjin, they're joining me from of alda in texas, ab jump on, keep well, u. s. president joe biden says he would be traveling to all day this weekend and in the last hour he also said he's sick and tired of gun violence in america. and congress must stand up to the gun lobby to bring in reforms the idea. 19 year old can walk into a store and buy weapons, a war designed and marketed to kill is i think is wrong. just violet common sense, even the manufacture,
12:09 am
the inventor of that weapon. thought that as well. you know, where's the backbone? where's the courage to stand up to a very powerful lobby? well, our white house correspondent, kimberly how could joins us live. hi there. kimberly. so what can biden in congress do we heard back call to action there and from the president talking about passing sensible gun reform and standing up to the lobby's? well, you have to remember that the, the system of government in the united states is the president to and the congress or co equal branches of government. so the president can do executive orders and congress can legislate. but if they are 2 separate bodies that act and so other sort of independent of one another, although the president does signed legislation into law. what's confusing all of this is that often what we see in the case of gun legislation is that it will pass
12:10 am
in the house of representatives. but then it gets to the outer chamber, which is the u. s. senate and that's where it seems to stall, largely because there are many republicans in the u. s. senate who are beholden to the national rifle association, or the largest gun lobby in the united states. as many of them have received donations for their campaigns to be elected, and as a result will vote a guest this legislation because they have been directed to do so by the national rifle association. so that's why this happens. but you also have to remember that these legislators are put into the senate by americans who support these actions and hold very dear the right to bear arms, which is entrenched in the 2nd amendment of the us constitution. so, oh, well, the often these legislators are blamed and they really are representative of a larger body of americans that the support the ideals of the national rifle
12:11 am
association. so this is part of the problem that many democrats and the president is battling, is that there are millions of americans that don't want to see the background checks or a limit on high capacity magazines, or even assault rifles. and that is why you don't see these changes. and in fact, very quickly, there was a ban on assault rifles in the united states back in 1994. it lasted for 10 years that expired. and it was not renewed largely because the american people did not support it. and that is why you continue to see the spike in mass shootings that we are seeing in the last decade or so. am kimberly, you mentioned the national rifle association. it's holding its annual convention as it happens in texas on friday. what have they said so far? yeah, largely quiet for about 24 hours after this tragedy are radically,
12:12 am
they are holding their convention not far from where this tragedy occurred. and now they have finally released a statement in, at the national rifle association, really distancing itself from the gun, blaming the gun for this tragedy. instead of blaming the gun men for this tragedy saying this was the act of a loan to range criminal. as we gather in houston, texas, we will reflect on these events referring to the killing of the school children and you've all day and redouble our commitment to making schools secure. in other words, i indirectly saying that no limit on fire arms would in any way have any impact or change the scenario. but that what this is really needed is to make sure that these individuals cannot act in this manner. once again, this is a law we this very intent on making sure that there are no limits on the ability of
12:13 am
americans to purchase guns. and that is, i suspect, what they will be talking about as they continue to hold their conventions, which we should point out is going to be attended not only by the governor of texas, but also by the one of the top republican senators in the u. s. senate ted cruz and also for president donald trump. all very started supporters of the 2nd amendment can be how they're joining us live from the white house. kimberly thank or chooses attack in texas was the 2nd deadliest school shooting in the u. s. since 1970. the worst was at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut, back in 201226. people were killed, most of them were young children, but gun laws haven't changed that much since then. a year after sandy hoops shooting a bipartisan law aimed at expanding background checks on all sales and transfers of firearms was defeated in the senate, only for republicans supported it in 2019 or shooting a wal mart in el paso,
12:14 am
texas killed 23 people. the majority republican senate promised to acts on gotten safety, but instead passed the law in 2021, allowing hand guns to be carried without permits, while 2 bills of broadening background checks. and i've languishing in the senate. they need 60 votes to become law. that the senate is evenly split between republicans and democrats will, despite making up just 4 percent of the world's populations, americans are estimated to have of all civilian firearms. that's around 393000000. while public support for stricter laws appears to be declining, a gallup poll last year, find only 52 percent of americans. won't laws on foreign sales to be tightens. and that was time from 67 percent in 2018 will reveal rodriguez's chief equity officer from the hope and he'll fund, which is a philanthropic organisation focused on reducing gun violence. and he joins us live
12:15 am
from san luis obispo in california refill. thank you very much. for being with us, we hard president biden there make yet another call to action and we've heard several of them as we often do when these things happen. talking about passing sensible gun reform. do using this any chance the on the back of this latest mass murder that, that anything can change. to be honest, thank you for having me here. i wish i didn't have to be here given the circumstances, but unfortunately this is where we're at in this country. i'm hopeful but, but, but i think of history will tell after sandy hook, nothing has happened. and so unfortunately, we continue to, you know, it's ironic that the governor continues to point a mental health has one of the key issues that they want to focus on when you know, really by definition is insanity, as they say is, is expected different results. doing the same thing and that's what we've been
12:16 am
doing when it comes to this issue. so we're feel you make an interesting point there. when we heard the texas governor and the n r a, in fact claiming mental health, no guns, but then where are the mental health resources that they are insisting on and why not have background checks if mental health is really the, the main problem here. why not put your resources behind that? correct. and i could tell you, i worked in mental health for living years in santa barbara county as an administrator in and it is the same republicans that have be funded and embedded mental health in the past 20 or 30 years as well. so i think that, that the, the rationale for why shootings occur continues to change. when columbine occurred, what you heard was that it was video games when that got disproved. so it all being and it keeps changing in terms of the logic. what doesn't change is that we do nothing. so i think you know, to your point, you know,
12:17 am
do i agree that we should look at mental health as, as a particular issue? yes, but most mental health clients actually are harming themselves. not other people. so this, this is a kind of a, a very small percentage of people that are doing this. and although i will attributed to a mental health issue, we also shouldn't criminalize and begin to demonize people mental health issues. because in the reality, the statistics tell us that the vast majority of the harm themselves about other people and refill when there were restrictions on semi automatic weapons. and i believe that that lasted for a decade was there were reduction in violence that did school shootings reduced because i keep hearing ted cruz particularly saying, oh, let just say to against this stuff doesn't work. but what, what does the day to tell us? you know, the, the data tells us that there was significant reductions and what you didn't hear from folks that were talking before me was that, that be it lapsed. you know,
12:18 am
bush senior did not re institute that, that love but we did. we did see significant decreases. i know it wasn't perfect, but that's the last piece of legislation that has come through in this country since 1994. what we can see from what's happening right now is that what we're doing is not working. moreover, if you heard the governor speak this this afternoon, he made kind of some very contrast between california, which has the both strictest gun laws and texas and thing, you know, california still has a big problem as well as we do. the reality is in california is about 40000000 people and we have about 2000000 gun related deaths in california where texas having about 30030000000 people, right. 10000000 less is at 4000. so when you look at the difference,
12:19 am
you begin to see that there are states that are driving down the death rates because of restrictions that exist in terms of who is accessing and, and create creating excuse me, 2 parameters. so that if folks are going to have weapons that it is, it is, it is legislated refill rodriguez, their chief equity officer for hope and he'll and thanks very much refill for joining us. thank you very much. coming up on this news hour from london for the 1st time gotten me a cushion has visited soldiers wounded during rushes war in ukraine. china's president defends his country to the u. n's top human rights official a day after reports revealed the brucell extent to which we can miss grims, are systematically abused. and it was a day of come back at the french open. we'll have tennis action from paris in sport, with jim ah

12:27 am
as well as the don't ask region. 7 opinion however is non captured. yes. so that is good news, although many civilians still remain in the region. do we know audio and how ukrainian forces are faring in this, particularly if those suppliers do? do get cut off for now. i think ukrainian armed forces are prepared for whatever they're facing. there are 700000 ukrainian soldiers fighting on the front line across the ukraine. and so they're prepared for any outcome. and even if russia does succeed in capturing some of the towns and villages in the used to be praying, especially in the hong kong reaching that have been you know, even capturing the cities and maybe securing the regions within the border that they set out to secure i think that is only going to be tactical when not a strategic one. so and i don't know what strikes me and our colleague acid big

12:29 am
put it that way? i think the ukrainians have so far showcase and enormous bravery and the resolve to do what we can and everything that we're willing to sacrifice for our sovereign to injury tauriel integrity. so of course we counting on the whole from the west. we are getting quite extensively these days will still stand by our sovereignty and her toil integrity, and i don't think there will be any concessions made. however, we do things that were being quite realistic. and if there are some tactical wins or losses that we need to endure, we will do just that. just for the sake of strategic victory, i want to live called their former ukranian, n p, joining with their alley. i want to thank you. there's lots more
