7:02 am
washington dc. the framework agreement follows weeks up close door negotiations in the senate. it's one of the 1st bipartisan gun control agreements in decades. we haven't had significant federal legislation in nearly 30 years. so having a framework announced, having 10 republican senators long was 10 democrats signing off on that, which would avoid that fellow buster in the united states senate. it's a really big deal. the tentative agreement has been welcomed by president biden, who's tweeted, i want to thank senator chris murphy and the bipartisan group for the gun safety proposal. it does not do everything that i think is needed, but it reflects important steps in the right direction. with bipartisan support, there are no excuses for delay. let's get this done. but some don't want it done. i think it's deeply disappointing that republican leadership decided to get in lead
7:03 am
with the democratic conference in the senate to put together a gun control bill. you know, that should be a huge red flag for republican voters going into the fall. significant proposals include incentives will states to pass so called red flag laws, which allow a judge to decide whether a gun via or owner poses a potential threat to others. federal background checks and buyers under $21.00 would include access to their records as minors and federal funding for mental health care and increase school security. so, but these measures for well short of what's being demanded by gun control. advocates, including president biden himself at rallies across us saturday calls were made for a bad, on the se, looked debbie, automatic weapons, and high capacity magazines. and for the age at which an individual can buy a rifle range from $18.00 to $21.00,

7:06 am
vastly important that we do come through and pass that just as you know what was discussed prior to coming here to this moment. this is that if we address this is not the final, the final draft to be passed right away. so there is still time for these members of the senate to have discussions, to really take into consideration other ways that we can improve these different titles in this bill for presidents and manual macros coalition and it's left wing rival on neck and neck. and the 1st round of frances legislative elections. projections suggest macros parties should win more seats, but could lose its overall majority. as natasha butler reports, the president faces competition from left during alliance that by john look, millennial the french president looked relaxed as he voted in the coastal resort of little k, but the manual, my call faces
