7:04 pm
dramatic. people are very upset that it took police 78 minutes. well, over an hour, to respond to that school shooting. we have video that we have seen of parents taking outside, urging the police to go in there and rescue those children. and we hear gunshots in the background. and the police have acknowledged that they made a bad call a for some reason, the commander of that police unit said that he believed that this was a barricaded situation, where the gunman was isolated, not a threat to children. when in fact, he was in classrooms shooting and killing young children and 2 teachers 21 in all. throughout that hour and several minute period of time. meanwhile, children were phoning in on the 911 emergency line,

7:07 pm
i must say there is very little optimism among those who really understand how congress works. there will be any change at all. president biden. would like to see it. most democrats in congress will see it, but likely we will not see this happen in the us even after this shooting. and the laws are likely to remain the same. and i should mention that here in texas, the was on guns have actually been loosened by the current governor greg got it. all right, thanks so much john henry, they're the well as the world braces for a food crisis brought on by the war and ukraine. russia's president says, he's willing to discuss ways to ship grain that stuck in ukraine's port in a phone call with the leaders of france and germany. let me put in said russia is ready to increase fertilizer exports. but only if sanctions are lifted, russia and ukraine account finality,
