lawmakers on capitol hill hearing emotional 1st hand accounts of the devastating human impact of gun violence in the u. s. t. i n a i n i e g o. because when i oh, off to her record a testimony, the father of the 11 year old school shooting survivor told members of congress that the family is now dealing with the subsequent trauma. oh, look to day i come because their career lost my baby girl. she's that same little girl that i used to play with ingram with and do everything
cuz she was that is little girl. i don't know what to do cuz i would think i would have lost my baby girl. she's everything not only for me, but her siblings and her mother. but i wish something were changed, not only for our kids, but every single kid in the world. schools are not safe anymore. another parent, the mother up a 21 year old, who was severely injured in the buffalo, new york shooting last month, issued a direct appeal to lawmakers. you are elected because you had been chosen and are trusted to protect us. but let me say to you here today, i do not feel protected. no citizen needs an air 15. these weapons are designed to do the most harm in the least amount of time. and on saturday may 14th, it took a domestic terrorist just 2 minutes to shoot and killed, and people and injured 3 others can still see her walking windows toward the exit.
this mother called for a ban on the type of assault rifle used to kill her 10 year old daughter in you vol, the texas. so at this moment, we asked for primers, we seek to raise the age to purchase these weapons from 18 to 21 years of age. we seek red flag loss stronger background checks. we also want to repeal gun manufacturers liability and unity. why these are measures supported by democrats in congress and echoed by several members during the hearing. no civilian needs, an assault rifle, and the 2nd amendment does not protect the right to own a weapon of war. it's time that we banned assault rifles from our streets, from our communities, from our homes. but even on an occasion like this, the partisan divide is all to clear republicans weary of what they call an assault
on the right to bear arms. calling for added security in schools rather than new gun control legislation to after tragedies are politicized for partisan gang. and we have seen many seek to leverage these crimes and their victims to push for lack radical left wing policies or to beatrice. their campaigns to get elected a division reflected in the senate to where 9 republican votes would be needed to pass any meaningful legislation votes that are unlikely to be forthcoming on anything other than the most tepid of measures. mike hanna, outages era, washington and the me hours after that hearing the house of representatives passed a sweeping package of gun violence prevention measures just a handful of republican party members, joined democrats in approving the bill, which has little or no hope of getting through the senate article here in washington dc explains what the bill aims do laid on wednesday, the us house of representatives past what is easily the most aggressive gun control
legislation in years if not in decades. some of the things that the house passed basically raise the age for someone to be able to buy an assault weapon from 18 as it is now to $21.00. they want a band, the sale of large capacity magazines. basically, if a clip can hold a 15 bullets or more, they want to get rid of that. they also want to create safe storage requirements for people who keep firearms in their home legislation, but also ban goes guns. those are basically guns that can be made from kids. they're pretty much untraceable and they want to band bumps stocks. those are tools that can turn basically a rifle into what appears more to be a machine gun. the vote was fairly partisan. 5 republicans voted with democrats. 2 democrats voted against it so easily pass the house of representatives, but it is not going to become law the vast majority. if not all the republicans in the senate have said that they are opposed to this kind of strict gun control
legislation. so it will it pass the house. it will not pass the senate and it will not make it to the president for his signature. yes, president joe biden has opened the summit of the americas in los angeles. he wants to use the event to re engage with the regional leaders. many though aren't attending anger that washington refused to invite cuba, venezuela and nicaragua. that leads it unclear how much progress will be made on the u. s. top priority at the summit, curbing high levels of migration, reynolds has moved from los angeles in a speech opening the summit of the americas here in los angeles, president joe biden challenge the participants here to work together on a long list of initiative. everything from improving health care in the region to ensuring food security, disrupting criminal gangs, and ensuring up democracies in the region. by far, of course, the top issue here is migration. there's record numbers of people seeking to go

and efforts by trump and his aides to overturn the election. january 6th was a very dark day in america's history. i think it's important to have a full accounting of what happened and making sure that through these hearings we ensure that it doesn't happen again. oh, republicans call the democrat lead investigation, a sham. a recent nbc news paul shows the percentage of americans who believe trump was responsible for the riot, has dropped to 45 percent. and it's unclear how many people will june into this round of hearing's law. but democrats are hoping for another chance at a public reckoning that may help the party in november's midterm election. how did your castro al jazeera washington former usaa olympic gymnast, including simone biles of fall to $1000000000.00 lawsuit against the if the i around 90 claimants say the bureau miss handle its investigation. a former teen

weeks in istanbul. and this time, the hope that ukrainian site is also going to sent a delegation to attend to these meetings according to their preliminary scheme that they are working on, is to establish equitable mechanism consisting of russia, ukraine, turkey, and the united nation. so at this equitable mechanism is going to a to, to, to open a safe corridor for the ships who carry the green and fertilizers from both ukraine and russia to the boss for us to be exported to the international market. one of the key issue here are, is there that the floating minds that had been left by the ukranian army in biloxi to prevent russia, a bomb bin at its coastal cities. and according to skim, add, the ukrainian turkish and russian they were, forces are going to clear these minds to open a safe passage for their ships. once the ships are safe, guarded by the torch. naval forces. peel a boast for as the grain on the fertilizers are going to be gathered in
