1:01 am
a bipartisan group of us senators say they've agreed a limited deal for gun control measures following a spate of recent shootings. ah, i'm learn taylor. this is al jazeera life in london was coming up. france votes for a new parliament with seat projections, putting emmanuel in my cause party ahead. despite a surge by the left, russian forces blow up a bridge linking several don't ask with a nearby city, cutting off a possible evacuation route for civilians and tr lanka. limits the amount of fuel motorists can buy it weak as it struggles to deal with severe shortages. and it will begin in the u. s. where group of republican and democratic senators as agreed on a framework for new gun control laws aimed at curbing rising gun violence. the main
1:02 am
proposals, including include funding to help the states enact red flag laws, which make it easier to remove weapons temporarily from people considered potentially violent buyers under 21 years of age would be subject to tougher background checks where their juvenile records made available and funding would also be provided for enhanced mental health services in communities and schools. it comes a day or 2, tens of thousands of people took part in matches across the country, calling for strict a gun controls. following a spate of recent shootings last month, 19 children and 2 teachers were killed in an attack on a primary school in texas, and 10 people at a grocery store in new york state. both the gunmen were 18 president, joe biden has held a proposals as important steps, even though they fall far short of the measures he's called for. mike hannah's live for us in washington dc. like how much of a breakthroughs this well,
1:03 am
let me just start by saying those incidents that you refer to, those mass killings in new vaal, the, and in buffalo, new york were carried out by 18 year olds wielding a off 15 automatic weapons, which they had bought legally, now that being said, as this is a significant development, given the fact that there has not been a bipartisan agreement on gun control in decades. so this is the 1st time that that is happened for a long period of time. it has been welcomed by president biden himself, who says that it's a step in the right direction. he notes to though that it doesn't contain everything that he wanted. president biden was one of those along with tens of thousands demonstrators in the course of saturday. calling for example, for a ban on automatic weapons, a total ban, and on high capacity magazines, along with raising the age at which an individual can buy a rifle from $18.00 to $21.00,
1:04 am
which is the federal age limit for somebody wanting to buy a hand gun so the irony is you could get an automatic weapon when you are 18 but not a hand gun. so there are still issues invoked here. the, the republicans are some are still deeply opposed to any form of gun control measure. but as president biden said, the fact that there has been some form of bipartisan agreement on this issue would appear to be a step forward. and is it possible that this might lead to further con, control measures in future? well, it is unlikely if the political situation remains as it is at present. by that, i mean the fact that the republicans have 49 senators in the senate. now to pass any gun control legislation, you need a super majority. which means that you have to get 11 republican boats to pass any gun control measures in the senate. along with the 50 democrats who are in place.
1:05 am
so this is an issue that has not been overcome to date. this bipartisan agreement is the 1st sign that there could be some measures that will get those signatures from their needed republicans. but anything more significant is unlikely to get any republican backing at all. and that is why gun control advocates are looking increasingly towards those midterm elections. in november, i was at rallies yesterday where the call was made very strongly vote. the amount vote them out. the threat from many is that if republicans do not come along with the democratic proposals for meaningful gotten reform, then they should be voted out to come the mid term elections. but as it stands at present, it's unlikely if the political situation remains as is that there would be any more significant gotten changes in congress. my can i thank you very much. indeed. chris brown is president of the organization brady,
1:06 am
united against gun violence. she says people in the u. s. don't feel safe. they want congress to address this issue. americans have seen a record number and shoot, seen children's router almost a decade ago in sandy hook. and they saw efforts to fix that through expanding background check die on the senate floor since then. a generation of children has grown up with locked down drills. that's our legacy. our children are going to school terrified and they're on the front line. and the legislators haven't taken account of what that is done, inter jenerette intergenerational lee, but for parents and across the country, i can tell you is the see change what we've seen since the last round heretic shootings in buffalo and you've all day people don't feel safe and they want congress to do something to address these issues and activeness and that care about this issue. brady activists march for a live gift for every town,
1:07 am
a whole host organization that worked every day in black and brown. communities like coalition is not done violence and many other i call us the coalition for justice are moving forward. he gather, we are stronger and we've never been stronger. but it's because we have far too many victims in the country. and survivors you've listed lifted their voice for change, and i think the political calculus shifting. a lot of these senators are looking at folks who are tired and have had enough ah prompts. now we're president emmanuel, my calls centrist coalition, and it's left wing rival, a neck and neck after the 1st round of voting for the next parliament. there were 577 seats in the national assembly. 289 seats are needed to win and absolute majority. the new parliament won't be clear until next sunday's 2nd round. but the
1:08 am

1:09 am
the lions certainly seems to be ahead in terms of the amount of seeds that it would be able to win in the parliament offer a 2nd round. perhaps next week, however, what he does or what the result also show is that michael may note when the majority phase paul is party, may not when the majority of that would be a problem for macro, because he wouldn't necessarily then be able to push ahead with his reform, if the agenda, the main, a challenger, really to a minute, mike roles centrist lives, is this new left wing block, this new left wing alliance that is made up of the socialist, communist and greens that was created by the far less leaders only mental show off to the presidential election, which came a 3rd and it's captured. the imagination is particularly younger voters because it's very much focused on issues such as climate change, but also the cost of living. now, of course is left with lines on looking at the results. it is a huge victory for them tonight. they are hoping very much that they can build on
1:10 am
