3:02 am
act on gun control. is called on lawmakers to restore limits on the sale of assault, sty weapons, and high capacity magazines. after a string of mass shootings in the country, biden says the families of those killed involved in texas and buffalo. new york had one resounding request. they had one message for all of us. do something. just do something. for god's sake do something. after columbine, after sandy hook after charleston, after orlando, after los vegas, after parkland. nothing has been done. this time that can't be true. this time which we must actually do something new should. rephrase is one of conscience and common sense for showmen of your ho. i want to be very clear. this is not about taking away anyone's guns. it's about villa not
3:03 am
about vilifying gum on gun owners. in fact, we believe we should be treating responsible gun owners as an example of how every gun owners should behave. i respect the culture and tradition, the concerns of lawful gun owners at the same time. the 2nd amendment, like all other rights is not absolute was just, it was justice scalia, who wrote and i quote like most rights. right. the 2nd amendment by the, the rights granted by the 2nd amendment are not on limited, not unlimited. and never has been roy's been limitations on what weapons you can own in america. that's bringing my cannot corresponding to washington d. c. so a very emotional speech from present biden is least fit earlier. talk us through some of the measures he wants to see enact yes, and
3:04 am
a very rare prime time addressed by the president to the american people showing exactly the degree of concern with which he used this up to it in mass shootings in recent weeks. president biden, outlining tangible measures that should be taken by congress to crack down on a gun usage, basically, offering suggestions such as a total ban on automatic weapons, a limitation on the capacity of gun magazines at imposition of federal wide red flag laws. and very interestingly as well, the recommendation at that gun manufacturers should be stripped of their protections at present. you cannot sue a gun manufacturer if the relative or friend has been killed by a gun manufactured by that particular company. they are protected in terms of law, president biden insisting that these protections must be swept away. but above all, he is directing his message to congress whitehouse sources that says that president
3:05 am
biden has done what he can on an executive basis at now needs congress to act. and in his speech, president biden made very clear his anger at those republicans who are opposed to any form of gun control pointing out that it requires at least 10 republican boats in the senate to pass any federal legislation, restricting or imposing gun controls and saying that he just cannot believe that many republicans still continue to insist they do not want to even debate the issue of gun control. so a very powerful message from the president biden, both to congress, but importantly to, to the american people who he points out can establish or port make their opinions known through the ballot box. mike, thank you very much for that. my can ally for i say in washington, let's discuss this some more now. with jason nichols who joined us from ellicott city. maryland is a progressive finance. well, and social analysts and lecturing african american studies at the university of man
3:06 am
. and thank you very much for being with us it jason. jason. sorry. as mike said there, we had a powerful speech of from present by did an emotional speech. when did you make of it? he made some tangible suggestions there. do you think he can convince some of those republicans in congress to support some type of new gun loss? well, there seems to be right now a bipartisan effort to make some of these changes. i think of the assault weapons ban is going to be a nonstarter. i don't think that republicans are going to support that. but of ban on high capacity magazines and red flag laws, background checks, which are largely popular with the american people. but there have just been a know for republicans who were in the pockets of the gun lobby that these things don't change. and i think we've gotten to a point with mass shooting after mass shooting after mass shooting that the american people even responsible gun owners, are looking at those politicians and saying enough is enough. we need universal
3:07 am
background checks. we need you not to be able to shoot off 50 rounds and not have to reload and that we need red flag laws we saw in buffalo on, i'm sorry, go ahead. no, no, go ahead. please finish your thought. yeah, in buffalo and o vall, day in particular, when we talk about vall day, you had a young man, a shooter who shot his grandmother. now imagine if his grandmother were able to report to law enforcement that she thought her son was having a mental health crisis and should not have his weapons. and then he who goes to a formal adjudication process in order to have those weapons removed. perhaps she wouldn't have been shot and even perhaps even more importantly, there would be 19 children who would still be alive and as well as the teachers. so this is something that the american people want. they see it as sensible. even gun owners support it, but it's just a few republican politicians who have been blocking this. and i think now with
3:08 am
senator murphy and sen court and working together, hopefully we can get past it. but i don't think you're gonna get rid of an assault weapons now as you, as you say, they're a small group of republicans and democrats in the senate to have reported some progress this week. and i negotiations on legislation aimed at addressing gun violence and, and say they hope that this configures had deal to break the paralysis on this issue of guns in the u. s. and what difference is that specific legislation going to make? what impact will have? well again, i think particularly with red flag laws, if you can make sure that somebody cannot, oh, you know that someone can report a family member can report somebody who should not be in possession of a weapon because their danger not only to other people, but to themselves, this could save lives of our veterans. we have veterans who die. ah, you know, i believe it's every 22 days in this country. a veteran takes his own life. we. 3
3:09 am
have domestic violence issues where some of the perpetrators should not be in possession of a gun. it could save women's lives. and it, of course, can stop some of these mass shooting situations that we've seen, you know, one after another. there was just one today and tulsa oklahoma, so i think that that is going to be really important. and i hope that they can it at the very least come together on that. now i wish that president biding had addressed some of the other underlying issues like white supremacy of like internet radicalization. i wish he had gone a little more into that. those. there are perhaps no easy fixes for that. but there's, i think, to keep people safe. we've seen a, with asian americans, asian american businesses of being shot out. we've seen it, of course, with buffalo, that person being radicalized and in 2019 in el paso. so i think that's another issue that the american people need to grapple with agreed that the i did
3:10 am
a lot of underlying issues, as you alluded to, the majority of man can vote is seemed to favor strong. a gun can chose have got them at times coming up in november. what impact to what this issue dtc this issue having on voters and how it is i to vote in of him? well, i certainly believe that's why you're seeing some of these republicans comes to the table. they see that americans, of course we have our kitchen table issues. we have inflation like it is in many of the other industrialized nations around the world. busy we're dealing with high gas prices, but the most fundamental thing is life. and if we're now doing everything we can to protect life, i think that the american people will turn on their politicians, particularly of the republican politicians who have been blocking this year after year. and so i'm encouraged that that will motivate republicans to actually make a move on this if they don't. and the people who don't back this,
3:11 am
i think that they are going to have the answer to their voters. jason nickos, very good to talk to you about this. thank you so much for joining us on al jazeera . thank you so much. and at the wild news now rival sides in yemen, civil war had agreed to extend the trellis hours before it was about to expire. the move has been welcomed by the un and present joe biden, who says it's time to work towards the permanent p. c o, a tour, a gate to be re force the sci fi between who the rebels in yemen. internationally recognized government was 1st agreed in april. it'll now last for another 2 months . yemenis have greeted the news with relief and hope like epa on the job yemenis are mostly optimistic about the result. we hope the truth will be extended and other issues that haven't been resolved over the past period will be addressed as well, including the opening of roads and crossings. roaring yemen started in 2014. when it ran back to the rebels, took control of the capital santa forcing the internationally recognized government

to flee. the saudi coalition joined the war the following year to try to restore the government to power more than a 150000 people have been killed during 8 years of fighting u. s. president joe biden, and the un have welcome the move to extend the truce. the longer we can create a and keep an upholding kind of truce bubble. but more we hope, oh, that donors are, will continue to fund our operations. the conflicts created one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. the un says more than 4000000 people have been displaced . 90000000 others are going hungry. analysts say the truce is a pathway to pace the institution of a new presidential council in yemen. i think that's been key because this new counsel, an 8 man council, has really been focused on trying to change the trajectory of yemen. and it was
3:13 am
significant. but some of the old war mongers were removed from leadership positions in order for this councils comments. so there's everything to play for now. there is still a problem with ties. a large city in yemen, southwest that still under siege, but of the 8 long years of fighting and misery. there is at least hope among yemenis that this devastating war might finally be coming to an end victoria gate and be al jazeera ukraine's president says russia now occupies a 5th of his country. ramirez landscape, urging the west to step up weapons supplies. ukrainian troops are locked in grinding battles with a russian army with front lines stretching across more than a 1000 kilometers. the ukrainian military says here, street fighting is taking place in sierra don't yet. russian forces control 80 percent of the city, which is one of the last major urban centers in the low hon speech. and that hasn't fallen if you can give them a binding variable. why luca, as of now new 20 percent of our territory is under the control of occupies almost 125000 square kilometers. nearly 300000 square kilometers are polluted with mines,

3:22 am
instead, more coal, more oil, more gas was burned and we are where we are today in a world where by diversity is in collapse where deadly heat waves and wildfires tell a grim truth. we're environmental. disaster seems to be a weekly event somewhere in the world. the importance of this moment is, well 50 years ago. those reports set out very clearly what was needed to be done and they, and it hasn't been done. and of course, we now find ourselves pretty much on the edge of catastrophe, whether we're talking about waste pollution, climate growing inequality, poverty, stockholm declaration did presage the age of the environmental conference. what successes like the parents agreement in 2015. 0, with these events or at the intersection at which science and political self interest collide and progress can be elusive to say the least weakening,
3:23 am
but progress is needed now on some perilously important issues. like how the planet feeds and powers itself. we couldn't be in a more awe important play in the history of society our i would say. and so i think it is critical that people turned their eyes towards stockholm and really see it. i said key moment in 1972, we saw the early days of environmental activism. they awarded a series of prizes to the olympic champions on pollution. may we have the 1st award for autumn avail? hello show. the protest movements has moved on since the message is the same spearheaded today by another product of stockholm. this has been a time where we have been reminded of how vulnerable we are. our current predicament reinforces a point, made 50 years ago, which the day is more valid and troubling than ever. no one amongst us. what ever
