5:05 am
the us on saturday. the marches were organized after a spate of deadly shootings across the country. buffalo, new york, and u val de texas were 2 of them, carried out by attackers with high powered firearms. weapons that demonstrate as here would like to see under strict regulation if you look at it, all of the recent murders have been done by 18 year olds. and yet they can't smoke cuz they can't buy cigarettes. they can't buy liquor because they're not mature enough to handle those 2 things. and yet they mature enough to handle an 8 or 15 separate dickens. and the biggest rally was in washington d. c. way senators, a said to vote on gun reform later this week. the us house of representatives has passed bills, which would, in principle, raised the age limit on buying semi automatic weapons and established federal red

flag laws. but the bills are not likely to become law because of united republican opposition and the senate. something activists here cannot understand if our government can't do anything to stop 19 kids from being killed and fluttered in their own school and to capitated. it's time to change. oh, then guards from the very top of the us government president joe biden urged to demonstrate is not to give up. marsha, with the way people with my vote. people are gone. but protesters are not giving up yet. and they demanding action from the law makers . of the w sumi sub a scar, there was at the rally in washington dc,
5:07 am
and she told me what specific measures or changes the protesters weren't. well, quite simply rahile or they won't just any sort of change. i mean, we saw so many signs imploring lawmakers to do something to make up schools, churches supermarket safer. we have seen the speed of mass shootings in buffalo, new york, and you've all the texas, tulsa, oklahoma and the anger and the frustration was really palpable among protesters. specifically the march for allies movement. this was founded after mass shooting and florida 4 years ago, and they have a list of policy proposals. they want to see address. that includes a national licensing and registry system, a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines. that's essentially how many bullets a gun can fire off policies to disarm gun owners who pose a risk. also a national gun buyback program. but we have to say we're here that while the majority of americans do clearly in survey after survey say they want some sort of restrictions on guns. it becomes tricky when you talk about the how,
5:08 am
because we did speak to gun control, advocates this past, we can say there shouldn't be a ban on assault weapons or that there shouldn't be a national registry. what they can't agree on is that something needs to be changed . and you mentioned the march for our lives protests which, you know, that happened about 4 years ago. but how big was the turn out this time around in other parts of the united states? well, there were big protest and cities across the country from new york to chicago to los angeles, and we saw a pretty big crowd here in d. c. we have to say what is different this time from the previous march that you mentioned? we heard from protesters that there is this renewed sense of urgency after the mass shootings that i mentioned. and the fact that america has witnessed more mass shootings than days in the year. so all of that is contributed to this fresh momentum. really the push for gun safety legislation, but we have to remind viewers that nothing has actually changed in terms of legislation. and a lot of protesters we saw and spoke to carried signs expressing their fury with lawmakers who have blocked any progress on meaningful reform. yeah, there is also
5:09 am
a renewed push in congress, full gun control, but there are some stumbling blocks that just took us through those. yeah, the stumbling block is and has been a grid lock in the senate. so the house of representatives where the democrats have a majority, they were able to pass a package of measures this week that include things that they call common sense gun laws. like removing guns from the homes of people who are considered a risk. raising the age to purchase a semi automatic firearm from 18 to 21. but that is all but doomed in the senate. and the reason rahile is that the democrats don't have the numbers. they would need 10 republicans to vote with them on this package. there is not much chance that they will get that majority. they are still negotiating. there's some optimism, but most observers here believe that congress will come up short again on legislation on gun control. he deputies assuming the mask on the in washington dc. thank you so much. we as like
