2:02 am
donuts in that drive to take full control of the don bus region. ah. the shock and grief in the town of u val de texas after teenager opened far and killed 19 chill to teachers on tuesday . it was the worst school shooting in the us in a decade. still unclear what the 18 year old gunman, motivations were. president joe biden has again said he's sick and tired of gun carnage in the country. he called on politicians to stand up to the powerful firearms lobby and saved lives. the idea, 19 year old walk into a store and buy weapons, a war designed and marketed to kill is i think is wrong. just violates common sense even the manufacture, the inventor of that weapon. thought that as well. you know,
2:03 am
where's the backbone? where's the courage? to stand up to a very powerful lobby? let's speak now to john henry, who's at the scene of the shoes in the world. the intake joins is now said john community in mourning, and no doubt the anger running deep. that's right. the more people find out the more devastating the information is. it turns out, according to what we've been able to piece together, that salvador ramos bought to a or 15 now assault rifles and days after his birthday, just days before this shooting and apparently shot his grandmother in the face after having an argument with her. then message it on social media to a friend that he was going to a school. and it was this school behind me where he went. and over the course of an
2:04 am
hour he burst passed and armed security guard into this school. and she fired 233 rounds, killing 17 children, 2 adults, and ultimately being killed himself by border patrol agents as they burst into that room. apparently this was all in one classroom. good. and the question that's being asked here, the reason that ceiling is still closed off in been researched, is it authorities are trying to discover what triggered him on that particular day . and why he chose this school? will there be those in the community who were supposed to gun control and when something like this strikes so close to him? i wonder if it changes perspectives. well, governor abbot didn't say this was a mental health issue. although we don't have a lot of specific information about this particular young man except that he was
2:05 am
bullied for years as a child for speaking with a list that that might have played in. but mental health is not something that's usually predictable for people who are about to buy guns, which a very difficult thing to target. what his opponents, including beta work, a democratic candidate for governor here in texas, who burst into governor abbot news conference to say that years of inactivity in congress. and here in texas hasn't helped. he said that this was entirely predictable. and that it is because governor abbott and others have not acted that we see these kinds of school shootings. and in fact, what's happening over time is that states of actually losing their gun laws made it easier to carry a concealed weapon made it easier to carry a weapon that is not concealed without a permit ensued. those are the kinds of laws that people on the more liberal side of the perspective are asking for. on the conservative side, yes,
2:06 am
we are hearing cries in treating mental health and keeping people who have mental health problems from getting guns, but decade after decade here in the united states school shooting after school shooting. it's never happened or don't leave a message on 100 reporting. and let's say for my white house course when it can be how kit has more on some of the obstacles facing significant change to gun control . what's confusing at all this is that often what we see in the case of gun legislation is that it will pass in the house of representatives. but then it gets to the average 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 guess this legislation because they have been directed to do so by the national
2:07 am
rifle association. so that's why this happens. but you also have to remember that these legislators are put into the senate by. 6 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, often these legislators are blamed and they really are representative of a larger body of americans that the support the ideals of. 2 the national rifle association, so this is part of the problem that many democrats and the president is battling when news broke of the texas shooting, the online reaction was immediate. his elixir briar lease say the shooting began at 11 32 in the morning than the i was that followed, anxious parents gathered outside desperate for news of their children local reportedly wold when tweeted, we just heard screams inside the civic center. yet another family hearing the worst
2:08 am
news possible. her colleague dylan calia, she had a picture of one of the victims, 10 year old xavier lopez. those scenes at reminiscent of the sandy hook shooting in connecticut 10 years ago. a gunman shot dead 20 children aged 6 and 76 adults fath barack obama described that shooting is one of the darkest days of his presidency back then he called for change. can we truly say as a nation that we're meeting our obligations? can we honestly say that we're doing enough to keep our children all of them say from since then efforts to change. gotten policies in any significant way have repeatedly failed after tuesday is true thing and takes us obama tweak that he grieves for the families, but that it was also angry for them. saying that the us is paralyzed, not by fear, but by a gun lobby and
2:09 am
a political party that has shown no willingness to act on the subject of lobby groups. the star tribune newspaper based in minneapolis, she had this by one of its cartoonists, withdrawn after the sandy hook shooting. you can see the police type on the lower image showing that one of the barriers to gun control in the us is the power of the gun lobby. and particularly the in our re or the national rifle association. takes us republican ted cruz is one senator who's received financial support from gun lobbyists. the website open secret says he was given the most money all the $300000.00 out of all fans, candidates and the 2018 election cycle. more recently, the brady center to prevent gun violence has ted cruz not quite at the top is number 26, but still featured among senators who received most from the and i re what's interesting though is the number in the bottom right. $3159.00, the average number of gun deaths and takes us per year by far the highest on the
2:10 am
list. after the shooting crews tweeted that he and his wife, when listening up in prayer, the children and families involved. he also dismissed any suggestion, there's a need for strict gun laws, you know, inevitably when there's a murder of this kind, you see politicians try to politicize. you see democrats and a lot of folks in the media who's immediate felicia is to try to restrict house fish and rights of law abiding citizens. that doesn't work. it's not effective online. there are lots of opinions from both sides of the gun control debate about money, politics and freedom, but journalist, philip de franco, also wrapped up one of the other common things, helplessness he twisted the uniquely american feeling, saying, news about a mash shooting is kids and knowing literally nothing is going to change to stop it from happening again. is the one i hate the most. well, johnny is now from baltimore in maryland is adult,
2:11 am
joseph sacral. he's the director emergency general surgery at the john hopkins hospital and decided to become a trauma serge. enough to surviving a gunshot to the throat at 17 years old doctor. just a 2nd. thanks for joining us here at our desert before we get into this. yeah, as i say you do what you do because of being shot yourself. tell us briefly about that. and how to inspire you. yeah, well thanks. thanks so much for having me. as you indicated, when i was 17, i was nearly killed after being shot the throw the 30 caliber bullet. and that really inspired me to go into medicine to become a trauma surgeon. and now has me working at the intersection of medicine, public health and public policy to try to prevent these injuries from happening to begin with. so fair to say you really, really have an understanding both sides of this. yeah, i mean, i come to this again from the perspective of both having been a patient and now seeing it on the other side. as a trauma surgeon,
2:12 am
someone that's having to talk to these moms and dads and explain to them that their child that left, that morning is never coming home again. and i just, you know, want to say that i think like all of us, we feel absolutely terrible. and that's how we should feel. because today we woke up in america where we continue to watch these tragedies unfold time and time again. and that is absolutely horrifying. you know, and i'm not this heartbroken, i'm angry. and i refuse to believe that this is the best that we can do. shame on us for not protecting our children, not protecting our communities. it's an absolute travesty. you must find it hard to fathom when you hear the likes of ted cruz saying that gun control is not the answer. yeah, absolutely. i mean, this is honestly though the dark has stain,
2:13 am
right. that has plagued this nation and it's not just about the match, shootings the match and of course get a significant portion of the media. but as you know, that's less than 2 percent of the overall public health problem every day in cities like baltimore and philadelphia and chicago. we have young, black member being slaughtered on our streets. and so, you know, we also have a responsibility to tell those stories. we prevent those injuries, and that's why, you know, this is so complex, you know, people always ask, well, what's the one thing that we can do? it's not about one thing. it's about a multifaceted approach that crosses sectors. so we can really tackle this problem . on the flip side, we have cause fraction, we have cries of shame, a determination to change, but nothing happens. so what is it that's going to make the difference?
2:14 am
boy, here's what's gonna make a difference. the difference is going to be when a few things happen, the 1st is all of us have to be part of the solution. you know, when you look at the voter turnout rate in america, you that one of the reasons it's so those people don't believe that they individual can make a difference. and i can tell you as depressing as what we are seeing, the lack of inaction at the federal level, most governing in america, happens at the local and state level. and over the past 10 years, we have seen hundreds of pieces of common sense gun legislation that have passed in cities in states across america. now, we live in a country that of course, you know, has pores orders. so we have to do a better job of ensuring that our elected officials have the moral courage to do what's right. and to pass legislation at the federal level. this is, you know, not a democratic issue. it's not a republican issue. is
2:15 am
a uniquely american issue. and we can do something to prevent indeed, and america is a country that has more guns than americans. what would you say should be the 1st piece of legislation that is passed to to get the ball rolling on this? yeah, i mean again, like i mentioned earlier, i think there's a variety of things that we need to do when you look at right now. what the senate can do is expand universal background checks. right? that is something that is, is simple. it's something that over 90 percent of americans agree upon, you know, they can, you know, past 6 extreme risk protection orders also known as red flag was they can ensure that we are, you know, a properly funding gunbelt prevention research. you know, the administration can also do stuff. you know, there's a variety of things you know, that has not been done that really, i think we need to put in the forefront. this is important voice. we appreciate
2:16 am
