5:17 pm
happens. but clearly attention will focus on how it could be that no other vehicle, no other rail vehicle was involved in this incident and the weather conditions at the time of the incident as 4 hours ago now we're clements were blue skies. there was no obvious reason from a weather perspective, why this incident would take place. so to recap, for dead 15, severely injured, 30 injured, totally, and investigations on our underway. donna came talking to us from berlin, dominate. we're going to be checking in with you as get more information, but for now thank you very much. indeed. us president joe biden's appeal to congress to restore limits on the sale of assault style weapons and raised the minimum age to buy guns. a speech instructor gun last followed recent mass shootings. my county has more from washington, dc in the past 3 weeks, more than 70 people have been killed in mass shootings. the most recent, at
5:18 pm
a medical center in tulsa, oklahoma with 4 people were murdered by a man, said to be a disgruntled patient. police say the gunman then killed himself. he bought one of his guns just a few hours before we know through the help of r, a t f and their gun tracing that at 2 pm on june. the 1st mr. louis purchased a semi automatic rifle from a local gun store. the same weapon was used to killed 19 children and 2 teachers at a texas elementary school last week. the same weapon used to murder 10 people at a grocery store in buffalo, new york. 10 days before that. in both cases, the alleged gunmen were just 18 years old. the texas shooter killed at the scene. the buffalo shooting suspect was arraigned on murder charges thursday. in a rare prime time addressed to the american people, present invite and urged congress to impose federal gun controls. suggesting
5:19 pm
a ban on automatic weapons and high capacity magazines. raising the age at which an individual can buy a gun from $18.00 to $21.00. and removing the protections against litigation enjoyed by gun manufacturers. they had one message for all of this. do something just do something for god sake do something. some of these measures suggested by president biden are already being debated and may well be passed in the democratic controlled house of representatives. that they are likely to be blocked by senate republicans who were a particular target president by them's anger. my god, the fact the majority of the senate, republicans don't want any of these proposals even to be debated or come up for a vote. i find unconscionable we can't fail the american people again
5:20 pm
a message to for the american people that the majority should act and turn their outrage into making the issue central to their vote. my kinda odyssey for washington. the supreme court could issue a series of verdicts in the next month and contentious and challenging cases and unprecedentedly, suggest the court maybe about to take away a woman's constitutional rights to an abortion. it would be a decision going against prevailing public opinion. as alan fisher reports from washington, dc. oh, it's sport protests across the country. an unprecedented leak of a draft opinion showing 5 of the 9 justices on the u. s. supreme court would overturn roe vs wade. a controversial landmark 1973 decision which guaranteed the constitutional right to an abortion. the league itself is a little shocking,
5:21 pm
just in terms of how the supreme court operates. it's really only happened a tiny handful of times in history. the sometimes of the lee is, of course, in some sense, even more shocking, because it shows that the court intends till overturn about 50 years of president, on abortion in the united states. former president, donald trump, who 3 of the justices on the court. all 3 are conservatives. all 3 implied during the confirmation hearings that roe vs wade was settled. law is a president of united states supreme court. and one of the important things to keep in mind about roe v wade is that it has been reaffirmed many times over the past 45 years. i have an agenda to stick to the rule of law and decide cases as they come. the idea, the court would scrap the protection, has left some who voted to confirm the justices struggling for answers. i will just
5:22 pm
tell you that it it rocks my confidence in court 3 and 5 american support abortion rights. and you, paul suggests, even the idea of scrapping those protections i said the courts once high approval rating. the court has in the past ruled in an unpopular way when they band prayer in schools for example, or where they extended the right to an attorney for a criminal defendant. so it's not that the court has never been willing to go against public opinion, but in this case, they're taking an issue that seemed sort of saddled for the last 50 years. some justices have expressed the concern at the damage a leak can do and an investigation is underway. but what me do more damage is an unpopular decision. and while there are some who will welcome the direction, the court seems to be moving it. it's image could take a beating in the court of us public opinion. alan fisher al jazeera at the supreme
