12:07 pm
ownership with further legislation could we really see that happen i think we've seen it happen we saw it happen up there obama the idea that people take firearms it to national parks the idea that an abbreviated this campus's that it hit the to be gun free zones would be considered to to be restored to allow students to carry guns on this campus as texas so that and other real pressure is it a number of states people to be allowed to carry their guns openly about solty states licensed other citizens to carry concealed weapon selves let's take that up or of a number of hard line. rational owners want the right to be able to carry their guns openly in public to go to go shopping with us all over the shoulder. all right

a different perspective from the u.k. itself that here on the continent everybody is pretty clear that the u.k. has not been clear in its goals it has not been clear in what how it's supposed to address those three important points for the e.u. meaning the border with northern ireland and ireland the braggs of bill and also the rights of e.u. citizens in the u.k. and all that needs to be resolved before moving on to the next phase which would define the future relationship between the u.k. and the e.u. . hoffman standing by for us in strasbourg where the european parliament has voted today max thank you very much now the twenty seventh anniversary of german reunification is being celebrated in cities across the country today the city of might as host of this year's made event and germany's president don meyer and chance wrong americal among senior politicians in attendance at the famous
12:19 pm
together we are germany this year's day of german unity comes just after a general election that revealed the differences that continue to split the east and the west of the country. and our chief political correspondent linda crane is out those celebrations and minds to choices for more high melinda so how together is the germany a twenty seven years after unification. well economically and materially east and west are closer than they have been at any point since unification on many indicators like unemployment the two are pretty much at the same level though productivity and g.d.p. do lag behind in the east but the perhaps biggest barriers are not visible ones not material ones but the barriers that are in people's minds as a recent survey puts it it shows that a large majority of germans in both east and west feel there's still a kind of
12:20 pm
a berlin wall in people's minds and certainly that was evident in the recent election results as you remember the far right a f d a party the alternative for germany took twelve point six percent of the vote nationally overall but it took over twenty seven percent in some parts of the east and came in first before the mainstream parties so there clearly is a sense in many parts of the east that people are dropping behind that they simply can't catch up no matter what they do that feeds frustration that feeds discontent and that feeds this protest vote for a right wing party. americal is attending a ceremony today in the building behind you are these divisions that still exist going to be a topic there. absolutely they are the german president is speaking at the moment he's talking about the fact that division and polarization threaten democracy itself and he's been talking about his travels through the country where
12:21 pm
he hears from people in with the west and in the east that they sometimes don't recognize their country anymore that they don't feel at home anymore and he said that is not only about immigration it's about a sense that after twenty five years of constant change that is absolutely what people in the east have seen of shops and workplaces and churches shutting down of young people moving away that many people have a sense that somehow they don't recognize their own lives that they don't feel secure that they don't feel that they can trust the future and all of that he says breeds this kind of division and so he's calling on people to do a much greater job at understanding at each other and at fighting mistrust both of the others and and of the government and mainstream parties are due to these chief political correspondent and a crane at the celebrations in mind for germany's reunification melinda thank you
