those who fight to defend our freedom, god bless them and i wish i was there with you. >> that's right, god bless them all. thank you to everyone, special thanks this memorial day to all the brave servicemen and women who protect our freedom. now here is "america reports." >> god bless them all indeed. president biden paying respects at arlington national cemetery as americans across the country remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice serving our great country. good afternoon, everyone. welcome to "fox news live." >> let's listen to the president right now. >> caring for our neighbors as ourself. working fervently to bring our union, just that much closer to fulfilling the founding creed as the secretary said that all women and men are created equal. it's often said that as a nation we have many obligations, but
the only one that is truly sacred, the only truly sacred obligation we have is to prepare and equip those women and men we send into harm's way and care for them and their families when they return home, and when they don't. it's an obligation that unites americans, brings us together, make sure the women and men who were willing to lay down their lives for us in the very best to return. i want to acknowledge we are making progress in key areas, like bipartisan legislation advancing in congress to deliver healthcare services and benefits to veterans and the survivors impacted by toxic exposures. don't know how many americans and service members may have died because of what they are exposed to on the battlefield. toxic smoke from burn pits, burn
pits that incinerated the waste of war, hazardous material, jet fuel, so much more. we have a duty to do right by them, and i'm determined to make sure that our brave service families and members that served alongside them do not wait decades for the care and benefits that they deserve and that's why, that's why we are working so hard to find out what the facts are, we can still save lives, we have to act. all of us also have a duty to renew our commitment to the foundational values of our nation in their honor. for those are the values that have inspired generation after generation to service. on friday i spoke at the graduation and commissioning ceremony of the u.s. naval
academy, had an opportunity to do that before as well. it was a remarkable experience again, an honor. looking out at those young men and women newly commissioned officers embarking on a life of service they hold before them the example of the heros who have gone before them, many of your family members. heroes who have answered duty's call at lexington, concord, antietem, gettysburg, and afghanistan, iraq, so many other places around the world. so many who never returned home, including the legacy of all those held prisoners of war or who are still missing in action. to be here today, soon after that joyful celebration at the academy is an embracing reminder
of all we ask of our service members and our families. strong shoulders and noble spirits of our service members that our freedom is built, democracy sustained. and in this moment when a war of aggression is once more being waged by russia to snuff out the freedom and democracy, the very culture and identity of neighboring ukraine, we see so clearly all that's at stake. freedom has never been free. democracy has always required champions. today, in the struggle for democracy and freedom, ukraine and its people are on the front lines fighting to save their nation. but their fight is part of a larger fight. unites all people. it's a fight that so many of the patriots whose eternal rest is here on these hallowed grounds,
between liberty and repression, appetite and ambition of a few that forever seek to dominate the lives and liberties of many. a battle for essential democratic principles, rule of law, free and fair elections, freedom to speak and right to assemble. freedom to worship as one chooses. freedom of the press, principles that are essential for a free society. we have heard this a lot. we have heard this a lot over the years. we are now realizing how real it is around the world in so many countries as i speak. these are the foundations of our great experiment. but they are never guaranteed even here in america. every generation has to defeat
democracy mortal foes and to every generation heroes are born, willing to shed their blood for that which they and we hold dear. ladies and gentlemen, today we remember and we reaffirm freedom is worth the sacrifice. democracy is not perfect. it's never been good, perfect. but it's worth fighting for, if necessary worth dying for. it's more than just our form of government. it's part of the very soul of america, the soul of america. our democracy is our greatest gift as a nation, made holy by those who we have lost along the way. our democracy is how we undertake the constant work of perfecting union and we have not
perfected it, but we have never stopped trying of opening the doors wider from opportunity, prosperity for people everywhere. every challenge, every obstacle we faced for the last 246 years of self-government, and how we have come back stronger than before. we must never walk away from that. we must never betray the lives laid down to make our nation a beacon to the world, citadel of liberty and justice for everyone. this is the mission of our time. our memorial to them must not be just a day when we pause and pray, must be a daily commitment to act, to come together, to be worthy of the price that was paid. may god bring comfort to all those who mourn.
may god bless our gold star families and survivors. and please, god, protect our troops. god bless america and all of you. thank you. [applause] >> and that was president biden speaking at the tomb of the unknown soldier at arlington national cemetery this memorial day. he spoke on a few different topics. said the only obligation that is truly sacred is to prepare and equip those we send into harm's way and care for them and their families when they return home, and when they don't. in this moment he also compared, he also said that obviously given the war in ukraine, he said the war there is a reminder that the ukrainians fight, and let's listen to taps here. [trumpet playing "taps"]
capitol after last week's massacre at robb elementary school in uvalde, texas, this as the justice department announcing it will investigate the police response. >> responding officers waiting more than an hour to confront the gunman while children inside called 911 desperate for help. jacqui heinrich live at the white house with more. >> good afternoon to you, the president notably in his remarks, mentioned the 2,461 service members and personnel who died in afghanistan but no specific mention of the 13 service members who died in explosion at the airport during the withdrawal, among the most recent deaths of the u.s. armed force, the first memorial day their families will be without them. the president did not single them out, but did note the deaths of members who died in afghanistan overall. he also made a mention of his personal connection to memorial
day, his son beau, a veteran, died of brain cancer in 2015, he links it to the toxic pit exposure. and this morning the pain of the school shooting is hanging over the country, he addressed criticism that he has not done more unilaterally to address gun control. he said he's motivated from the beginning, still motivated but the white house has taken the position the president cannot enact gun control laws alone, a contrast who to what vice president harris said when she was a senator, claiming that biden could ban assault rifles. he's claiming that's not in his power. >> i can do the things i've done, i can't outlaw a weapon, i can't change the background check, i can't do that. >> administration is punting to
congress, the white house refused some network requests to have officials on the sunday morning shows to discuss school shooting saying they are leaving it up to lawmakers to act. chris murphy said republicans are progressing in a bipartisan bid to reach an agreement. biden has not been directly negotiateing with republicans but added it makes no sense to be able to purchase a weapon that can fire up to 300 rounds. described a faction of what he called rational republicans coming to the table. however, not everybody shares his sense of optimism. democrat senators dick durbin and cory booker expressed the feeling they are not hopeful, brian. >> yeah, jacqui, chris murphy the senator saying mildly optimistic, we'll see. thank you. >> all right, jacqui and brian. byron york, chief political correspondent, and fox news contributor. byron, start here. president biden says he cannot
sign an executive order banning assault weapons. can he? >> no, he can't, it can't be done. it would be unconstitutional to do something like that. what's striking about that, there's a lot of pessimism around the whole gun issue because a number of people feel if congress didn't do anything, ten years ago after the newtown massacre in which a deranged young man killed 20 1st graders and six adults, and after parkland in 2018, a republican legislature and republican governor who is now the senator from florida, rick scott, sign a more modest gun bill. so it's -- it is possible now that senator mcconnell has asked senator cornyn to talk to democrats about this. it's possible they could come up
with a smaller group of suggestions than have been tried in the past. >> to your point, byron, in your piece you wrote on the 26th of may, referring to the gun control argument that explodes as you said after every mass shooting. you wrote this, in part you said but this time on capitol hill at least it seems more muted, and the measures under consideration are more muted than in the past. so speaking on what we just talked about senator murphy expressing optimism, mitch mcconnell expressing optimism this time, do you think finally this time will be different? >> well, it is interesting to hear senator murphy, he's been a leader on the democratic side about this, said specifically. maybe we can do smaller things, get an age limit of 21 to buy a weapon or red flag law, something that is short of like an assault weapons ban or even universal background checks.
so there does seem to be some opening for this. on the other hand, it's pretty clear republicans and that includes the democrat, senator joe manchin, they are not going to throw out the filibuster for this, it's going to take 60 votes. i think that's what the democrat, chris murphy is trying to do, and if possible, get ten republicans. >> what would it take, modest, what does that mean? >> well, here again, something like an age limit bill, something like increasing background checks without being totally universal. something, some sort of red flag bill and throw in a lot of mental health money, the republican answer to this. we need more funding for mental health. you put the package like that together, and it might be able to get through congress. i think we should address the substance of it, it might not really do a whole lot of good.
new york has a red flag law and we just saw the buffalo shooting. it didn't stop that shooter. so these things are not gonna solve the problem but they might make some progress and they might get ten republicans to go along with democrats on that. >> i don't understand why it's so difficult, to be honest with you, i don't care if you are a democrat or republican, you have people being slaughtered in classrooms and a grocery store. a regular day. i don't understand. >> if i could address that. if i could address that. i think the gun issue is one of these issues in which some sides feel they have to take max positions, like abortions, majority favor keeping roe in place but also favor significant restrictions on abortion and yet some pro life democrats feel they have to oppose restrictions on abortion even though the
public likes it. and the gun matter, high polling for the gun control measures yet republicans have to take a maximalist position, they feel it's a slippery slope and will lead to more. i think that's what leads to the dead locks on the issues. >> you know the killer in uvalde and buffalo, they did not use hand guns, they use semi-automatic rifles. does being pro life of children in schools, pro life of people in grocery stores mean they, whoever they are, try to take all guns away from everybody? isn't there a place to start, perhaps maybe even reinstalling, reinstating the ban on assault weapons. could that be a jumping off point to curtail the bloodshed in america? >> the reality on capitol hill appears to be there was an assault weapon ban between 1994
and 2004, it was passed with a ten-year limit and congress did not reinstate it in 2004. and there's argument between republicans and democrats about whether it was very effective or not, and the striking thing about listening to senator murphy now, the leading democrat on gun measures in the senate, he's not even trying to do that again. so -- the feeling is they have to go smaller. >> yeah, trying to get anything big done doesn't happen. you know what's striking, byron, this conversation about republicans this, democrats that, bullets don't care who is what. they kill, and they maim people. and the sense of uvalde, in this rifle maimed these kids where the parents had to provide dna samples to be identified so i think american people are tired of this political fight over who gets to live and who doesn't, because they can't get gun
control or some sensible form of it taken care of. >> well, this is the debate that goes on this on capitol hill and another problem, comprehensivitis is a serious disease, they don't like to do small things, but big things, and they deadlock and nothing. >> i'm not laughing, because it's a serious matter, it's a deadly issue, it's pathetic they can't get things done. they were voted in office to get things done and they can't. byron, we can have the conversation over and over but unless they do their jobs we cannot solve it. appreciate your opinion piece and your commentary here. thanks, byron, take care. >> new details on the arrest of paul pelosi, nancy pelosi's husband getting stopped for a
dui this weekend. we are hearing from police about how he caught their attention in the first place. >> also memorial day marks the unofficial start of summer, but americans looking for a get-away are instead feeling the pinch of soaring inflation. president biden get inflation under control in time for the midterms. i brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein. those who tried me felt more energy in just two weeks! (sighs wearily) here i'll take that! (excited yell) woo-hoo! ensure max protein. with thirty grams of protein, one gram of sugar, and nutrients to support immune health. people with plaque psoriasis, or psoriatic arthritis, are rethinking the choices they make. like the splash they create. the way they exaggerate. or the surprises they initiate. otezla. it's a choice you can make. otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats differently. for psoriasis, you can achieve clearer skin with otezla. for psoriatic arthritis, otezla is proven to reduce joint swelling, tenderness, and pain.

>> americans facing record high prices for gas and just about everything else this memorial day weekend but has not stopped millions of them from hitting the road or the sand. >> yep, with the best location of the day, we are going to go to christina, she's live at the santa monica pier in california. hey, chris. >> hi, i love that you give me shout out like that, and santa monica is the best place to be, i know that's up for debate, but i love it here and so do a lot of people. more than 39 million americans are expected to travel this holiday weekend despite the record gas prices. now, california leads the nation in high gas prices, average at 6.15, topping the national average of 4.61, the highest natural average on record. however, aaa expects 3 million
more people to travel this holiday weekend compared to this time last year. >> don't foresee oil prices dropping that dramatically and the global price of oil accounts for 60% what you pay at the pump. and more people are hitting the road and increased demand at gas stations you could see the prices stay high throughout summer and into the fall. >> and air travel continues to rebound, up 25% this year over last, even though flights are more pricey. airline fares are averaging $400 for a round trip, up 24% compared to 2019. t.s.a. screens more than 6.4 million travelers since friday this holiday weekend. some worried if they were going to make it to their destination, more than 6,000 flight cancellations since friday and hundreds of delays due in part to bad weather and airline staff
calling out sick over covid. >> i got here, we got the email our flight was actually canceled. >> apparently inclement weather, the flight was delayed four times and canceled and i arrived in atlanta at 3:00 in the morning. >> despite cancellations and the rising cost of gas, people still plan on travelling. 6 of 10 americans plan on going on a summer trip this year. >> much deserved. and we are not wearing red, we are wearing hot pink, wink wink. all right, christina coleman, thank you very much. ok, take care. >> all right, so soaring prices weighing on americans at the midterms inch closer, let's bring in tyler goodspeed, tyler, thank you for being here. let's bring up the first poll, how concerned are you about each of the following, and americans
put, well, inflation and higher prices, which are at a 40-year high as number one, tied with the future of the country. 87% of americans say those are the top two things that are weighing on them heading into the midterms. what do you think about where democrats stand heading into november on this particular issue? >> well, good to be with you, and i'm not a political expert but i can say this very much has a 1970s feel to it, which was the last time we really saw inflation at these levels in a sustained way, and when it comes to the 1970s, i do see, i do hear echos of jimmy carter, foreign policies abroad, persistent high inflation, unemployment starting to pick up, inching up a little bit in recent weeks so i cannot imagine that it is a good recipe for the
incumbent houses that controls both houses of congress and the white house. >> what can the president do? you have said president biden can do more actually when it comes to combatting inflation, americans are feeling at the barbecues, heavy right now. what can the president do? >> well, one thing he ought not do is release another cringeworthy barbecue video as he did last summer, pointing out americans were saving like $0.06 on the july 4th barbecue. so there is much they can do now that they have created the problem but certainly concrete steps they could be taking today to increase domestic energy production, reverse some restrictions on new permitting, new pipelines, new leases, they could, if they really wanted to bring inflation down, issue some jones act waivers to facilitate
the transportation of lng, and signalling they will not let the trump tax cuts expire and that would help to incentivize greater business investment and participation, neither of which has fully recovered since the pandemic. >> average price of gasoline, 4.61 across the nation. you mentioned a couple of things that the president could do, but isn't it also true that a lot of this is based, there's not much he can do, a lot of the old refineries have been shut down in the last couple years and the oil companies don't want to transform them or put them back online, it does not make much economic sense for them. so, does the repealing the gas tax, does that work, does putting in more of the, you know, ethanol gasoline on the market, is that going to make a big enough difference come november? >> you said $4 and something nationally. where i am in palo alto, it's
6.50 a gallon. so, things like relaxing some of the rules on blends can help shave a few cents off the average price of a gallon, but as you said, at this stage it's going to be difficult for the administration to make much of an impact. i think if you look historically, there's a very tight correlation between the price of west texas intermediate crude and oil rig counts in the united states, that broke down in 2021 because of the new restrictions on domestic energy production and the signals in terms of the regulatory burden down the road, they were starting to pressure investors not to provide capitol for a lot of these firms and institutions, but i think just walking back some of the rhetoric, some of the policy would go some way toward incentivizing firms to
rebuild and restart some of that capacity that was taken off line in 2021. >> tyler goodspeed, thank you for your perspective on this. talk to you soon. >> good to be with you. >> thanks. several cities across the country seeing an outbreak of violence, including new york city where a masked man randomly stabbed a stranger in broad daylight. are we in for more violence this summer? a live report in the next hour. but many in the media are calling out republicans and the stance on gun control in the wake of tuesday's mass shooting in uvalde, texas. joe concha joins us with his ideas what might make schools safe . choose stelara® from the start... and move toward relief after the first dose... with injections every two months. stelara® may increase your risk of infections, some serious, and cancer.

california. police revealing that pelosi came to their attention after he was involved in a crash with another car. fortunately no one was hurt. a spokesperson for speaker pelosi says it's a private matter so no comment. >> the media criticizing republicans for their response to the massacre at the elementary school in texas going after the second amendment in the process. >> this current version of the republican party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist. >> joe concha, fox news contributor and columnist for "the hill," start off with chuck todd's comments there, and do you think it's helpful given where we now are for this debate which is supposedly the most optimistic we have been in trying to perhaps change the gun laws in this country or to try to stop these shootings, since
2012. >> brian, amazing echo. president biden said a few days ago the second amendment was not an absolute right and now the moderator of "meet the press" echos the same thing in taking a side. so it's this lather rinse repeat situation we have seen over and over again that is all too familiar after any mass shooting. on the left, liberals calling for gun control, majority in the middle and basically all conservatives on the right saying we have to fortify schools and laser focus on mental illness, while saying the second amendment is an absolute right per the founding fathers in the constitution. both sides dig in and very little changes. >> joe, you wrote an op-ed, two common sense, if looking for middle ground and universal enhanced human security and
reducing the chances of the shooter buying a gun without stepping on the second amendment what do you mean by universal security? >> the government is spending trillions a year annual budget, and a few billion for schools, and maybe take retired police officers or retired military or even active police officer on desk duty but don't have to be in a precinct anymore to file your paperwork, the technology allows you to do that from ji where. put them at one entry point in every school, stagger the time certain grades enter and exit the day can't have hundreds entering, and behind bulletproof glass, you have to have all the doors closed unlike uvalde, a door was propped open, but i
think that would greatly decrease it. stop school shootings, no, but like cancer, mitigate as much as possible. >> you said you wanted to change the age requirement, as well, right, you believe they should be 21 years old to use assault style weapons in the country. >> all the school shootings going back to columbine, almost every school shooter is under the age of 21. some obtained the guns legally like uvalde, after his 18th birthday. i say you can't buy a drink until you are 21, can't buy a gun until you are 21. and serving in the military, they are getting proper training, supervision and firearms and how to handle a weapon. if almost all school shooters are under 21, look at that as far as extending the age to buy a gun. it's a start, let's have a conversation at least, right?
for adults with generalized myasthenia gravis who are positive for acetylcholine receptor antibodies, it may feel like the world is moving without you. but the picture is changing, with vyvgart. in a clinical trial, participants achieved improved daily abilities with vyvgart added to their current treatment. and vyvgart helped clinical trial participants achieve reduced muscle weakness. vyvgart may increase the risk of infection. in a clinical study, the most common infections were urinary tract and respiratory tract infections. tell your doctor if you have a history of infections or if you have symptoms of an infection. vyvgart can cause allergic reactions.
>> russian troops are stepping up attacks in the east as they are pushing on the donbas reason. and now concerns the atrocities from mariupol are about to be repeated. trey yingst. >> russian troops are making small territorial gains as they call for more international support. now entered the city of, where
an estimated 90% of the buildings are destroyed, according to the ukrainians. many civilians are trapped there, sheltering underground. idea of how the russians are advancing, levelling buildings with artillery and then pushing ground troops forward. over the last week they took the town of limon, considered to be a key strategic city as the troops control more of the donbas region. zelenskyy headed east yesterday to tour kharkiv, he gave medals to soldiers and met with leadership in the area. did discuss russian efforts to take the donbas region and said this about the war. >> russia has not only lost the battle for kharkiv and kyiv and enough of our country, it has lost its own future and any cultural ties with the free world. >> today a french journalist was killed in eastern ukraine where further highlighting the dangers
of covering this war. >> thank you, trey. >> fox news contributor and former national security advisor general keith kellogg. your assessment of russia's new strategy, how strategic is it, and how does this change the outlook for this war? >> thanks for having me today. look, it's important. they are trying to basically seize the final province and then seal that whole eastern region, that's the reason why the decision today by president biden not to give them the multiple launch rocket systems to the ukrainians is very, very important. strategic decision, bad tactical outcomes. ukrainians wanted the system, it will even up the battlefield because of range and precision. range, it doubles and triples the range of 155 artillery, and u.p.s. guided. why it's important and why the
ukrainians wanted that system, we created the system in the 1970s and 1980s and technology called assault breaker. it was designed to beat the russian army, the warsaw pact and the soviet union in the cold war, one missile systems out of one carrier would destroy a kilometer of the battlefield. neutralize 1.5 miles. that's the reason the ukrainians want it and talk about giving them $50 billion and then don't give them the weapon systems they want to level out the battlefield, especially in the donbas reason, strikes me as a bad decision by the president and will affect the tactical out come in the east. >> i mean, we are four months in and the ukrainians military as well as civilians are fighting like hell. when and how does this war end? >> well, it's going to come down to basically a stalemate.
you have to make sure the russians understand they cannot win this fight. and when they understand they can't win the fight they'll probably go to negotiations. but it goes back to what i said a second ago. that's the reason why something like mlrs is very important. it makes the russians pause. they were very clear with the united states. don't give 'em this weapon system because it changes the battle dynamics and it does in the ukrainian's favor, and we have to make sure the russians understand this. they are not going to win this fight, you need to go to the negotiations table, go at least to the status quo and -- where it started in february. >> putin does not understand negotiations, but something important in our country, today we honor our nation's fallen heroes. what does memorial day mean to you, and what should we all remember the other 364 days as well?
>> yeah, i think, thank you. what you have to remember is the sacrifice for great young men and women in uniform and those that support them. the vietnam war, i lost my first soldiers in firefights back in the start of that war and carried through in panama and then iraq invasion as well. and you remember them and more and more clear as time went by. reached a point when i was in the white house and i was listening to decisions made by the president on use of military force, i would say to myself, make sure you give them great advice, give them the advice that protects those young men and women and if they have to fight, there's got to be a reason to fight and if they give the ultimate sacrifice a reason we did it. and oath to myself, every time the discussions came up in the oval office or where else in the situation room, give them your best advice, protect those great young men and women, give them a chance to win the fight, never
forget their sacrifice. >> thank you for your service and your sacrifice and dedication to our nation. general keith kellogg, thanks very much. >> day for honoring the heroes who never made it home, supporting the families of the fallen and how we can all get involved. we'll tell you how ahead on this memorial day. i brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein. those who tried me felt more energy in just two weeks! (sighs wearily) here i'll take that! (excited yell) woo-hoo! ensure max protein. with thirty grams of protein, one gram of sugar, and nutrients to support immune health.

>> as we honor the men and women who died serving our nation it's important to remember the impact their sacrifices have on so many, including their siblings. our next guest, ryan manion, honoring her brother who was killed in 2007 in an iraqi ambush. ryan, thank you so much. what a beautiful picture we showed of you and your brother. tell us more about the travis manion foundation. >> the travis manion foundation was created after travis was killed to continue his legacy of service, provide support for our returning veterans and make sure we are providing opportunities for other gold star families to honor their laughed ones.
>> that's wonderful. and tell us if you could about your brother, not the marine who was a hero we know, but travis your brother. >> travis was my best friend. we were 15 months apart, born into a military family, my dad is a retired colonel in the marine corps and he grew up with a sense of service. we understood that from a young age. he was funny, he was kind, but he was also someone who understood that he wanted to serve his country, and i am just so incredibly proud that he was my brother. i'm proud that his story and his name continues on representing this generation of men and women who have been called to serve and have given their lives in service to this country. >> wonderful, and if you could give me a brief description of the other project that you worked on, the honor project. >> yes, so today we have thousands of people across the country at national cemeteries honoring our fallen, taking a

>> as we prepare to mark one week tomorrow since the horrific shooting in uvalde, texas, country is looking for answers. funeralses are beginning for the 19 children and two teachers murdered, the nation grapples with what can be done to prevent this from happening again. >> hello, everyone. we are back with a new hour of fox news live. announcing an investigation into the police response and why the officers waited to confront the gunman as 911 calls were still coming in from inside the classroom. >> president biden made an emotional visit to uvalde yesterday, the crowd chanting for the president to do something. the president hinting that the answer is gun control.
>> constitution, second amendment is never absolute. you could not buy a canon when the second amendment was passed. you could not purchase a lot of weaponry. things have gotten so bad, everybody is -- >> law professor and constitutional law attorney jonathan turley is standing by to react, we will begin with jeff paul live in uvalde. >> we continue to see crowds of people show up here to the city center to pay their respects at this memorial site. and a lot of folks are bringing flesh flowers, others balloon, but all do the same thing, they pause, even if it's for just a few seconds to really understand and grasp and think about what this city has lost. 19 kids who had a bright future in front of them. two teachers who were devoted to shaping the city's young minds and their future. many are sad and increasingly amount of people are angry and
goes back to how the mass shooting was handled by law enforcement. the d.o.j. will now review the investigation after the mayor called on the department of justice for help. it stems from several key missteps, not only the shift and response from the mass shooting to a barricaded man but the more than 45 minutes went by as 19 officer stood in the hallway before finally getting inside to kill the suspect. >> since this little girl was shot through the back, possibly the kidney, one round most unfortunately had a different fate. but one round for this little girl likely bled out. had we had law enforcement going in there earlier, this girl might, this little girl might have lived. >> at a time when many of the city's kids would be celebrating and excited for the first week of summer break, instead they will be spending their time likely at their friends' funerals and memorials. the first of those services beginning this week.
>> such a gut punch. all right. jeff, thank you very much. bryan. >> the recent mass shootings in buffalo and uvalde reigniting the nationwide gun control debate. let's bring in jonathan turley, thanks for being here. begin with the vice president, kamala harris yesterday, who made remarks in buffalo very specifically about how she wants to institute an assault weapons ban. take a listen. >> have an assault weapons ban, you know what an assault weapon is, you know how an assault weapon was designed, it was designed for a specific purpose, to kill a lot of human beings quickly. an assault weapon is a weapon of war, with no place, no place in a civil society. >> jonathan, we had an assault weapons ban 1994 to 2004. how likely would an assault
weapons ban, how likely would it about he to hold in the courts, jonathan? >> i think that the odds are against it being upheld. the earlier ban occurred before the supreme court came down with the heller decision saying the second amendment really bestows an individual right in terms of gun rights for citizens. there have been bans on ar-15 models that have been brought to court. they have had a tough time. that litigation is still going. there's a lot of misinformation about how this would play out. first of all, the ar-15 is the most popular weapon in america. one out of every five gun sales is an ar-15. the reason it's popular with many gun owners is it's modular so you can swap out parts, you can change the weapon. it is used for self-protection, some people use it for hunting, some use it for gun practice,
there's a lot of reasons why people have it. but there are up to 15 million ar-15s in the country, an estimated 400 million guns in, lawful guns in the country. now, many of those guns have calibers that are larger than the ar-15, many are semi-automatic like the ar-15. so the problem that these types of calls to ban this model run into is to justify it in comparison to other weapons, why is this one model going to be banned, and how does that impact the individual right that is contained in the second amendment? >> you also wrote in your op-ed as a practical matter, this may not actually save lives to the level advocates believe it would. politicians do not want to admit no legislative measure is likely to stop such massacres by loners like the texas gunman, likely could have killed the same
number of victims with a semi-automatic handgun. those are questions asked by a challenge pursued by the biden administration. jonathan. >> right. there is a real chilling effect on people talking about the facts of gun control. people want to suggest that you can simply legislate away gun violence. that's not going to happen, 15 million are estimated to be ar-15. but also is a fact that when we banned assault weapons for that earlier period there was not an appreciable decrease in gun violence associated with it. so we can have what the president calls a common sense discussion but we need to be able to deal with it on a factual rather than purely rhetorical, and he repeated a
false statement about the second amendment. we have said his statement that you could not own a canon or other weapons when the second amendment was ratified is untrue. even the washington post admitted it's untrue and yet the president keeps on repeating that as a defense for his call for gun control. he's undermining his own case by repeating what is ironically disinformation. >> jonathan, one last point. is there anything you see from your legal perspective that would survive in the courts that could be done to restrict in some way the access to the weapons, and i say that because 80 to 90% of americans believe those who are mentally ill should not have a weapon and believe there should be extensive background check, they should be extended. what do you think based on your background? >> there's a lot of room for not just compromise, but constitutional allowable
measures. possible red flag laws to remove weapons from people who are mentally ill. one of the most important things we can do is to fundamental illness treatment in this country, that's been known for years that as we underfund the treatment of mentally ill and some of them, very small percentage, but some of them become violent. we can also look at other types of restrictions in terms of what type of weapons are sold but there you get into serious difficulty. i think people who want to just say we are going to ban assault weapons, their term for ar-15, are going to have a rude awakening. that earlier law occurred before the supreme court made its decision in heller and i think that they will find it's a much more difficult proposition after heller. >> jonathan turley, appreciate your expertise on this matter. we'll talk soon. >> bright sunlight and brig crowds were not enough to stop a
total stranger from randomly stabbing someone on a street here in new york city, one of the many violent attacks across the country as we approach summer. america's crime crisis seems to be getting worse. >> will it be enough to change the big city trend with progressive policies, let criminals walk free with no bail. could have an impact on the midterms. next. she's getting graded on her green investments with merrill. a-plus. still got it.

>> bryan: a stabbing eng the middle of the day in new york city, part of the country's growing crisis, this weekend alone, more than 50 people have been shot. aishah hasnie is live in washington. >> we have been talking a lot about the mass shootings in texas and buffalo, incredibly tragic. this holiday weekend multiple mass shootings rocked cities coast to coast. in philadelphia, gun violence killed 12 people, including a 9-year-old boy and his dad, shot dead while they were sitting in a car. the city spiking past 200 homicides five months into the year. in tennessee, a shootout in downtown chattanooga left six people shot, all of them
teenagers. police there say two teenagers are in critical condition. >> this is exactly why i joined mayors from across the united states last week to call on the u.s. senate to pass common sense gun reforms to our gun safety laws. red flag laws, age limits. >> in chicago, 40 people were shot over the memorial day weekend, surpassing last year's total for the same time span. sadly chicago p.d. expected the violence having canceled days off for officers to prepare for it. in tulsa, oklahoma, seven people were injured and a woman killed when a gunman opened fire during a huge memorial day event about an hour away from tulsa. and in new york city, new yorkers on edge as this video emerges of a masked person attacking a complete stranger with a knife in broad daylight right before the holiday weekend
kicked off. on friday, new york representatives slammed new york state's bail reform laws while offering up legislation that would require judges to consider a person's risk to public safety before deciding on bail. the ohio state legislature sent a recent bail measure to its november ballot. and brian, according to a fox news poll taken before the texas school shooting, more americans believe tougher penalties for people who commit crimes is more likely to decrease gun violence than tighter gun restrictions. so it's not just calls for gun reform that we are going to hear a lot of about this summer as we inch closer and closer to the midterms, also hear about the other side from republicans as well. >> and some polls show tighter gun restrictions, americans are split whether that would
decrease mass shootings as a whole in general. thank you, appreciate that. >> arthel: rising crime rates are just one of the issues that could hurt democrats in the midterms. josh, no doubt crime is out of control. but is it exclusive to democrats, i mean, excuse me, how could the issue of increased crime be more detrimental in the midterms? >> so the issue is whatever city you are looking at, whether it's new york city, chicago, los angeles, san francisco, philadelphia, crime is disproportionately happening in democrat governed major urban blue enclaves. take it from me, i was in chicago four weeks or so. i lived there from 2013 to 2016. crime was bad but relatively confined. communities on the south and west side that you would not go into. four weeks ago i was there, i was in streeterville, in
downtown chicago, nice neighborhood. i was at a bar with my girlfriend. her purse was stolen by a panhandler in the bar inside the restaurant. >> arthel: it's ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous. is it putting more people in jail, you know, holding them responsible, not only putting them there, because what's happening is people are going into jails, especially young people who are under the age, if you will, juveniles, go to jail today and out later. what should be done? >> look, it's not like trying to reinvent the wheel, we happen to know people respond to incentives, people for the most part are rational actors socht when you increase the sentences, increase the police force, the time that cops spend on the beat. study after study shows a direct positive correlation between more cops on the beat and fewer homicides, fewer property crimes
or violent crimes. whether it's gun reform, police reform. from 1993 to 2019, over the course of 26 years, the violent crime rate, homicide rate in america precipitously declined. two and a half decades of unmitigated success on the law and order front. around that same time -- >> i don't want to go there, if we all have guns we'll stop it. talk about what the people in charge can do. mayors, governors, the district attorneys in various cities. the crimes committed by you mentioned homeless and also a lot of juveniles going in and committing crime because they can get out. what about trying them as adults, i don't know how you can do this, holding parents somehow accountable. i mean, something does have to be done, it's out of control. >> yeah, it really is out of control and i would submit to you the answer to this is getting rid of this light on
crime mentality. i mean, andy mccarthy had a commentary a couple years ago, the rise of the progressive prosecutor project and argued in the essay, george soros and a handful of his allies have funded the rise of district attorneys in various big cities across country who are committed to a prosecutorial platform of not prosecuting. that's what they are there. and gascon in california, and in new york city another example. they stay on the stump and in office, there are crimes they are not going to prosecute, but the obvious and easily foreseeable consequence of policies like this is that crime is going to skyrocket. people are rational, they respond to incentives. conservative republican has to oppose the rise of
anti-prosecutor prosecutors, and light on crime agenda, it is an issue calling out for i think the republican party to seize a moral high ground on, and i hope they do so this fall. >> hope all politicians hear what you are saying, no one, democrat, republican or otherwise. we have to leave it there. what's coming up next? >> bryan: president biden is saying no to sending a long range rocket system into ukraine despite that country's president pleading for help. former deputy national security advisor victoria coates weighs in next. ♪ ♪ 100 years ago, a beautiful empire built on black excellence was booming. black wall street. it was a sight to be seen. until one day, it was all burned to the ground. but fire is no match for the fire within black dreamers everywhere. and so, new black wall streets rise. ♪ ♪

claims earlier today. >> we are not gonna send to ukraine rocket systems that can strike into russia. >> russia has made it clear that providing weapons to ukraine would be seen as a provocation. victoria coates, counsel, distinguished fellow and former national security advisor under president trump, what do you make of this. reports that the ukrainians have been asking for the rocket systems that really could go up to 150, 200 miles away, and now the president drawing a red line saying we are not sending those weapons systems. how big of a deal is that? >> it's really remarkable. i mean, from the beginning of the invasion of ukraine president biden has repeatedly told vladimir putin what he will and will not do, and meanwhile putin has put everything on the table up to and including nuclear weapons, telling him we are not going to provoke you.
emblematic of the lack of strategy of ukraine. >> importance of getting help from the united states and allies. >> we are working daily to strengthen our protection. this is primarily through provision of weapons. every day we are approaching the point where our army will outnumber the occupiers and striking force. a lot depends on our partners and their redness to provide ukraine with everything we need to protect our freedom and i expect good news on this next week. >> advisor says the weapons are essential for the fate of ukraine and independence. again, why are we drawing the lines between this multiple launch rocket systems that the ukrainians are saying they desperately need, why not give them those weapons? i imagine you believe we should. >> well, i have a pretty high threshold for things i'll do to
annoy vladimir putin, and i think this would certainly fall in that category. zelenskyy has a plan. he has a strategy, he wants to win. the administration has no plan and they are not unleashing what weapon putin is truly aware of, our stable clean u.s. energy and instead continuing to thwart the development of that, he threatens to starve off europe. makes no sense. >> why do you see the con flibt now, we know the russians are moving into the donbas, they have made it their priority right now. seems like a crucial moment where there's a race against the clock here. seems the russians know the ukraines are waiting for weapons and trying to take advantage of the situation in this part of the country. >> absolutely. i mean, putin had to reduce his goals and his war plan pityfully and we are now day 100 of his three-day war. can we no means call it a
success for russia but they can grind it out and if we are not focussed and strategic and ready and nimble to help the ukrainians actually win this war, we are going to be in a grinding stalemate for the foreseeable future. >> the pentagon, united states has said the fate of ukraine and the deals that they have, the peace deals that they would one day hopefully negotiate is going to be up to ukraine. what, where do you think the united states should be on this in terms of pressure ling allies to stay out of the back room dealing and leave this up to ukraine or do you think the united states should step up and try to come up with some sort of back room deal? >> oh, absolutely we should be more proactive. we should have defined 100 days ago when success looks like, what victory looks like, what is acceptable. we can communicate that to the ukrainians. congress voted on close to $50 billion for ukraine which in the abstract i would support but in the lack of any kind of
strategy or end game from the administration it's very difficult to just keep rubber stamping their requests. and so i think they do need to go back to the drawing board, define victory, go up to the congress, explain what that is, and then make the request in an orderly fashion. right now we are seeing none of that. >> do you believe in order to end the war ukraine has to secede some territory, at least back to february 24th where the russians had crimea and what not? >> i don't think it's a moment to make concessions to the russians. ukrainians have shown bravery and the american people admire that and want to support it. now is not the time to talk about what they are going to give up. now is the time to support them in their fight and victory and make things as difficult for putin as possible. >> of course that discussion from france and other allies
attempting to broker a deal here. the big news is the rocket systems, according to the president, not going to ukraine, despite them pleading for them in the donbas region. victoria, thank you for being here today, appreciate it. >> thank you. >> arthel: glory to ukraine. china trying something new for its citizens in cities like beijing and shanghai, freedom to leave your home. communist government about to ease up on the brutal covid crackdowns where people have been locked inside for months at a time. alex hogan is live in london with details. >> hi. the city's capital in china, or the country's capital is home to more than 20 million people and in beijing, people could return to work the first time on this monday morning. restaurants have still not fully reopened but businesses are starting to partially reopen starting this weekend. what we saw is that parks and

or neighborhoods had been shuttered to contain recent outbreaks, no 1 on the street. world health organization argues the policy is not sustainable. most recent lockdown kept residents at home without the most basic supplies like medicine that they needed or even food. now, all of this was exacerbated, because initially at the beginning of the lockdown, people were told this would only last several days. >> arthel: outrageous, and 25 million people in shanghai and you showed those pictures of ghost towns, people locked inside but still some skepticism about easing restrictions in shanghai. why is that? >> there is skepticism, people had been told this will only last several days and what we saw is months of lockdowns, similar what we saw in the ewes with the empty streets, for us lasted maybe weeks at a time.
for people in shanghai, two months you are told you are not allowed to leave your home. so people hear they can go back out and reintroduce themselves to society and be around loved ones again, after so much time apart, people do not believe that that will happen, at least not yet. >> it's too bad. live in london, thanks, alex. take care. >> bryan: this memorial day one veterans group is celebrating a small victory in the battle for veterans who fought near toxic burn pits in iraq and afghanistan. what congress is doing and how you can help, next. ♪♪ my relationship with my credit cards wasn't good. i got into debt in college and, no matter how much i paid, it followed me everywhere. between the high interest, the fees... i felt trapped. debt, debt, debt. so i broke up with my credit card debt and consolidated it into a low-rate personal loan from sofi.

legislation on helping our veterans suffering from burn pit exposure. joining us now, jeremy butler, ceo of iraq and afghanistan veterans of america. jeremy, thank you for being here to talk about this very important topic and if you would, start by telling us more about the honorring and why it's so very important. >> thank you for having me on the show. it cannot be understated how incredible this bill is. legislation would right the wrongs that have been going on for decades, not only bring healthcare and benefits to post 9/11 veterans, suffered from 20 years from being exposed to the toxic air from burn pits, and also vietnam veterans, laos, cambodia, thailand, they were still exposed to agent orange. healthcare to service members that served here state side and were exposed to contaminated
drinking water. service members that were sent to clean up radioactive leaks and were exposed to radioactivity that led to cancers and things like this. this legislation would right the wrongs of decades of toxic exposure, that really have been brought about by our own government and that our government then tried to tell our service members and then veterans they were not responsible for the cancers and coming down with illnesses, and finally righting decades of wrong. >> jeremy, could you describe how difficult and debilitating the suffering is from toxic burn pit exposure? >> absolutely. there's a reason why we are talking about this on memorial day, a day when he think about honor and remember those who have fallen because of their service, and that's what we are dealing with now. jon stewart, incredible advocate for this, called it an ied put
in your body but does not go off for several years. when you send someone overseas and have them eat, sleep, exercise, stand watch down wind of a massive dumpster fire that is burning hundreds of tons of toxics and you are breathing in the smoke for days after days after days, month after month, it's going to result in incredible heather problems. everything from chronic asthma to lung cancers, breast cancers, brain cancers. we have lost too many. dr. kate hendrick thomas, lauren price, names go on and on those who came back and toxic illness related injuries and fought to their dying day to get the government to finally acknowledge that these are illnesses that were brought on by their service and the government needs to take care of them. >> arthel: in fact, president biden spoke on the very topic today, take a listen. >> don't know how many americans
and service members may have died because of what they were exposed to on the battlefield. we have a duty to do right by them and i'm determined to make sure that our brave service families and members that served alongside them do not wait decades for the care and benefits that they deserve. >> arthel: you know, as written on foxnews.com, says since their exposure, more than 300,000 service members have develop permanent illness and injuries, chronic bronchitis and brain cancer, and does not count those unregistered. finally, jeremy, you expect the pack act to pass. >> we need a minimum of 60 senators to vote yes. it should be 100 yes votes.

before the primary. >> leaks are never on accident. who benefits here. >> chad: the public is suspect of leaks, especially if news consumers don't trust reporters. >> journalists could do more to educate the public about how they handle leaked information so that the public might have a little more faith in the journalistic process. >> chad: sometimes information dries up when an official plugs a leak. with good political plumbing, a reporter and a source can get the information to sink in. on capitol hill, chad pergram, fox news. >> bryan: no one does it better than chad pergram. unofficial start of summer. what better way to spend it than at the beach. we'll head to the water, next. miss allen over there isn't checking lesson plans. she's getting graded on her green investments with merrill. a-plus. still got it.

purpose. they had a mission. above all, they believed in duty. they believed in honor. they believed in their country. still today, we're free because they were brave. >> memorial day is personal for joe biden. his veteran season, beau died of brain cancel. he vowed to ensure others that were exposed to get services that they need. the pain of the evalde shooting is still ever present. the white house has taken the position that biden cannot enact gun control laws alone. a contrast to know what vice president kamala harris said when she was a senator on the campaign trail saying that biden could ban assault weapons. the president said today it's not in his power. >> i can do the things i've
done. i cannot outlaw a weapon. i can't change the background steps. i can't do that. >> the administration is punting to congress. the white house refused to have officials on their sunday morning shows leaving it up to lawmakers to act. the president says he has few details about a bipartisan push to reach an agreement. he said some rationale republicans are coming to the table because conditions are so bad that in his words everyone is being more rationale. arthel? >> let's hope so. jacqui heinrich live. brian? >> a lot of people are learning that cooking out can break the bank. prices of several barbecue staples are up versus last year like hot dogs up 37% and ground beef up 20% among others. that's before you pay sky high prices to fill your tank to the
drive to the store. christina coleman is live with more. hi, christina. >> hi, brian. yes, i'm here at the santa monica pier, which is always busy during the holidays. a lot of people here that traveled here. i'm just happy that i live close by. these gas prices are no joke. aaa estimates that 34.9 million people will travel this holiday weekend by car. that's up 4.6% spared to last year despite is the record high gas prices. the national average is $4.61. that's the highest on record nationally. that's up from $3.04 a year ago. it's tough for many people dealing with record high inflation. some people say they rearranged their budget to offset the costs. >> it sucks. we had to spend money on the air b&b and food and now we have to consider travel. over $100 to fill up your tank.
it's in the back of our heads how much we're going to spend. we have to enjoy life and travel and not let things like that stop us. >> as for those taking to the skies this holiday weekend, flights are more pricey, too, with airline fare averaging $400 for a round trip. that is up 24% compared to this time in 2019. and in addition to higher prices, some worried that they would make it to their destination at all. there were more than 6,000 flight cancellations since friday and thousands of delays due in part because of bad weather. >> fortunately travel disruptions are still happening because of just this resurgence in travel. the travel industry is working as hard as it can to make things smooth for passengers and travelers. we remind everybody to have patience when at the airport. >> yeah, you have to have patience when you're planning to
travel, especially fly with all of these delays an cancellations, especially because there's so much pent up demand to go so many praises for people. tsa has screened more than 6.4 million travelers. bryan? >> you're not kidding about that pent-up demand. people want to go on vacation and go out there despite the prices even though it's more painful. christina coleman with the live shot of the day. thank you. >> the live shot of the day. right now we have dan geltrude. the founder of geltrude and company. you heard christina report. everything up, up, up. any advice to get through this period? >> well, it's really tough. because people out there are feeling that inflation. they're feeling it at the pump. so what choices do they have? they have to start to say what is it that i really need to buy.
those necessities like paying the rents, paying utilities and going to the grocery store, those are the things that people have to do. when we get beyond that and buying a new car and going to the beach, traveling, those are the things that people are going to end up having to cut back on, even though it's things that they really want to do. times have changed significantly. >> nobody wants to hear that because people have been putting this stuff off over the years during the pandemic, which is still going on. the restrictions are easing now. if you go to the airport, they're packed. airports across the country. how is it, dan, these airlines can increase their ticket prices with all of the delays and cancellations? what gives with that? >> well, i guess they're increasing prices because they can. people don't have a choice. so if they want to travel, if
they need to travel, they're going to have to pay those prices. now, at some point, arthel, people are going to cry uncle and they just can't afford it anymore. now, i think we're getting close to that point. when we hit that point and demand starts to come down, perhaps then there's going to be a little bit of relief from this inflation that just doesn't seem to want to retract. >> martha: when might it retract? that's what we want to know. >> i think that it will retract when we start to see some relief as it pertains to our energy policies. i've said this all along. energy is not what is causing all of this inflation. but it's a big piece of it. so until the united states can get back to a place where they were energy independent, pumping our own oil, buying our own oil, i think that as long as we're
going to be buying our energy from countries that are not our friend, we're going to continue to feel the pain. so when do policies change? have to look at congress and the white house for that, arthel. >> we're all watching. by the way, i don't know if you saw that graphic earlier. potato chips up 10%. for me, that's a good thing. i need to back off the chips. thanks, dan. >> we all do. >> i hear you. all right. have a good summer. take care, dan. bryan? >> this marks the start of summer for many schools across the country. for one of them, robb elementary, parents are planning funerals for their fourth graders. as those families think of loss, washington is bickering over the laws. we'll talk to a lawyer that is a mass shooting survivor about how to prevent future attacks and his own experience next. when it comes to pain medicine,

pay their -- or on saturday to pay their respects. jeff paul has more from evalde. jeff? >> arthel, as this community tries to honor the lives of those lost in this mass shooting, there's an increasing amount of frustration and anger growing against those that call evalde home, this goes to the missteps by law enforcement. one of the most glaring things, that law enforcement for more than 45 minutes, there were 19 officers standing in the hallway of the school until they got inside the classroom to kill the suspect. the other that being while this happened, investigators say children inside the classroom were calling 911 begging for help. so at the mayor's request, the department of justice will review how this case was handled and make those results public. all of that isn't distracting away from what is the most important right now. that's remembering the 19 kids
and two teachers that were killed. nearly a week after the shooting and crowds of people from all over the state and beyond continue to show up and pay their respects. >> so senseless. i can't imagine what these parents are going through right now. i'm grateful that my kids came home after the way this school year ended. i can't imagine the feeling. >> we're learning some of the first memorial services for the 21 that were killed are beginning, the first of many. for some of these kids, this should be the start of summer break. they should be enjoying time off of school. for some of them, they will be saying good-bye to their friends in the coming days. arthel? >> arthel: just not right. jeff paul, thank you. bryan? >> bryan: yeah. so if people say the solution is changing gun laws what would reform look like?
some folks to point to expanding red flag laws. but some say that could violate due process laws. brian claypool joins us. this is my first time speaking to you. i'd like to welcome you, i want people to know your experience from 2017 briefly. that informs what you're about to talk about. what was your experience at the las vegas shooting? >> i was at the vegas concert. i literally dodged bullets. i heard the bullets pinging around the bleachers. i thought was going to die. after i survived the first round. in the second round, i said if i survive, i need to do something to raise awareness about gun violence and some solutions. that's why we're here today. >> when the you see what has
happened in evalde, what do you think? what is your take-away from that given your experience? >> yeah, after i survived the shooting, i thought possibly an assault weapon ban might work. by the way, i've been republican most of my life. but by the way, this won't happen in our country. here's some of the things that can work. this background check, it's hr-8. it's already been passed by the house. let's get the vote that expands background checks. you've talked about the red flag laws. for you viewers, that means if somebody records an individual that might be unfit, you can go to court and get a notice to seize the guns without a search warrant. you mentioned privacy rights. in my opinion, if we're going to tackle this wave of mass violence, we have to give up some civil liberties.
this is no longer about red versus blue. we've had republicans presidents and democratic presidents. we have to get somebody working to give up liberties that we have to have red flag laws. couple -- >> with the red flag laws, that's in 19 states and d.c. i did not stuff the buffalo shooter. we know there's a red flag law here in new york. didn't stop him when he went on his racist massacre. texas republican representative dan crenshaw, he said that he's not in support of expanding red flag laws. let's listen to what he said to say. >> you bet. >> enforce the law before the law has been broken. it's a difficult thing to do it's difficult to assess whether somebody is a threat. it's unclear how they're properly enforced, how due process is adhered too. then ultimately how they even solve the problem. you know, because these things
have to be reported for them to matter. >> bryan: he's making the point with the red flag law, you take away a weapon before a criminal is committed and that could be dicey. >> would you rather have dicey or save lives? it's no longer about oh, gee, we might be violating somebody's rights. seriously? we need to enact some mandated reporter laws. what i mean by that is, you show me a mass killing and i will show you red flags every time. right? so if people on the inside -- for example, the shooter in texas. he posted on the internet two ar-15s and the ammunition and doing dms with this girl saying something bad is going to happen. let's have a law that internet companies, people on the inside, they suspect somebody will do something bad, report it. if you don't report it, you face
consequences, fines, possible criminal prosecution. one other thing. did you know that the manufacturer of that ar-15 used in that massacre in evalde had posted an advertisement with a 9-year-old kid with an ar-15 promoting that? why is that important? maybe we need new laws that allow victims of gun manufacturers to be sue if they use the gun for a purpose not intended. maybe that will prevent the ar-15 to get in the hands of unfit people. >> bryan: brian, this is a horrific event. i know you're having survived a mass shooting that we hear your perspective. you mentioned the privacy law situation. "wall street journal" had a piece out saying maybe we need more data points. let's allow google and other
companies to give more information to law enforcement to catch these people before it's too late. thanks, brian. >> arthel: thank you. the holiday weekend beginning with horror on the water happening down south as investigators work to find exactly what happened just off the savannah shore that left five people dead. >> bryan: thought covid was long passed? maybe not for kids in the nation's classrooms. some parents are fuming. what does the sign say? dr. marty makary is next. our fay just ordinary eggs when they can enjoy the best? eggland's best. the only eggs with more fresh and delicious taste. plus, superior nutrition. which is now more important than ever. ♪♪ because the way we care...

the same farley. horrific. >> arthel: so sad. the debate over masks in school heating up again as some districts bring back mandates. philadelphia and providence, rhode island are a few of the cities making students mask up. more than two years in this pandemic, are these districts still following the science? let's bring in john hopkins professor, and fox news contributor, dr. marty makary. all right. does wearing a mask in class protect five-year-olds? >> i'm concerned that these school districts going back to universal masks are defiant of a lot of the new research that has come out. last year we had two randomized control trials that suggested there was no benefit to universal masks. in the last few months, we have the spanish study, the finish study, that elegantly compared school districts and in the united states on thursday, we got a big city did from the university of california davis
that looked at so many counties. it was obvious from the sample size and the power that there was no benefit. what is important is that they reexamined the data from a cdc study that was used to recommend masks in schools. they looked at more counties a longer follow up period and found that the cdc study that concluded schools should mask was flawed that is important. masks have some harm. 75% of kids had covid as of february. since omicron is circulating, it's 80 to 90%. >> arthel: you said the cdc is cherry picking their mask mandate doing that. isn't it confusing? >> there's several areas of dogma in science where public health officials should have told the public we don't know. when people were asking us questions, public health should have said we don't know if it's a surface transmitted virus when
they told people to wash hands or stay home with universality. the biggest mistake was calling for the closing of schools. the data is clear and the cdc puts out their own dogma in the medical journal. many people have been critical because it uses science as political propaganda. >> arthel: listen, when the coronavirus, the novel coronavirus first appeared, even the scientists didn't know what it was, how it spread and all that stuff. should we be a little forgiving that if the guidance changed as they figured out what this thing was and how we contracted it? >> no. if they don't know if it's airborne or service transmission, do the study. in 24 hours it could have been answered. instead, they let it linger for
months. people were given the wrong message and false assurance that if they watch their happened like crazy, they would not transmit the virus to their older companions. >> arthel: i have 40 second left. quickly, i want to talk about the cdc saying that 1 in 5 americans could develop long haul long covid. what is it? is anyone more likely to get it than others? >> look, the incidence has been described under 5% in many studies. they make such a narrow definition. the study was flawed. they looked at any other reason you came to the hospital and only looked at people that got tested in a hospital setting. those are higher risk people. many scientists now are highly critical and told people to disregard this study. there was another study that came out last week that got almost no attention on most of the networks. it showed there were no biochemical indicators of long covid. the only predictor was precovid anxiety as to who would develop
long covid. >> arthel: well, i want it. thanks, dr. marty. >> bryan: that's a deal. >> arthel: take care. bryan? >> bryan: russian forces are moving to a key city in eastern ukraine where the governor session the smell of death is constant. now word that president biden will not send a critical missile system to ukraine. a live report from kyiv next. i recommend nature made vitamins because i trust their quality. they were the first to be verified by usp... ...an independent organization that sets strict quality and purity standards. nature made. the number one pharmacist recommended vitamin and supplement brand.
trey? >> arthel, good afternoon. russian troops are making small gains in eastern ukraine as leadership calls for more international support. the forces have moved forward in donetsk where 98% of buildings are destroyed according to the ukrainians. many civilians are trapped there. it gives you a sense and an idea of how the russians advancing levelling buildings and pushing ground troops forward. the last week they took a town that is a key strategic city. ukraine president zelensky visited kharkiv. he gave medals to ukrainian soldiers and met with military leadership. he said this about the war. >> russia has already lost not only the battle for kharkiv, the
battle of kyiv and part of our country, they lost their own future and any cultural ties with the free word. >> a french journalist was killed in eastern ukraine further high lightning the dangers of covering this war. arthel? >> arthel: it is dangerous. trey yingst, take care. bryan? >> bryan: let's bring in the trump 2020 press director of communications and a former foreign policy adviser. let's started here with lindsey graham. a senator that tweeted this. the biden administration's decision not to send these weapons is a betrayal of ukraine and democracy itself. ukraine is not asking for american soldiers, just advanced weapons. the biden administration is intimidated by russian rhetoric.
another terrible day in the continuing travesty of biden's foreign policy. what do you make of the president's decision of sending these missile systems is a step too far in ukraine despite the president asking for them? >> this comes in the context of the war in eastern ukraine becoming much more bloody as trey just discussed and russia making a little progress and gaining some momentum. at the same time, ukraine wants to launch an offensive to recover cities in the south that were captured by russia and liberate them like kherson. so what the ukraine government is saying is we need more advanced systems, more advances missile systems to combat russia. we have to hit their positions behind enemy lines.
biden was reportedly going to provide ukraine with mlrs system, which is a tactical missile system and that came out in the media three days ago. biden said no, i'm not going to provide any systems that can reach in to russia. that doesn't mean he's not going to provide the mrls system but made provide it with missiles that can go shorter distances and that ukraine can't use to attack russia. there's reasons for that. we don't want to escalate the war and because russia has said that if ukraine attacks russian and injures civilian, that would aid the propaganda that putin is putting out. >> bryan: what do you make of the notion that these missile systems could provocate russia? how serious is that?
>> the biden administration is using appeasement. they gave putin nord stream 2. then they turned and and encouraged through reporting that ukraine seized territory to russia in order not to escalate. this policy of appeasement has not worked and the false narrative of the idea that we don't want to provide lethal weaponry that could strike in to russia is not founded in fact. why? the biden administration has ritaed this as a communications issue and not a policy failure on their part. russia and ukraine share the border. any reuponry that we provided up to this point and to help the ukrainians could strike within russia. again, they're playing this on the communication side and not taking it seriously from a policy position where they think that ukraine can win. >> bryan: president zelensky
asking for the system, doesn't look like he will get them. the aggression in the donbas region. where do you think we go next for the president? at some point you do have to give them what they're asking for. why have given them $56 billion. we would we send this message given wore starting to see cracks in the european union there about not fully supporting a full-on victory in ukraine by pushing the russians out? >> it's been a mixed week for ukraine. you showed video of president zelensky. he was in kharkiv. imagine that a couple months ago. now the president can go there and visit kharkiv and rally the troops and give medals to those that have fought bravely. they're launching as i mentioned a new offensive in the south. they could take back kherson. they're going to protect odesa and the black seaports. those are positive things.
ukraine will only win this war and push russia out if they continue to get the advanced missile systems and advanced weapons that they needs in order to launch offensive and not just be defensive. i also -- we haven't talked about the air campaign. it's really important that russia does not control the skies above ukraine. that requires ukraine continuing to get anti-aircraft weapon and getting fighter jets that they can use to continue to contest the skies with russia. >> aaron, what need is there to send this message to russia that we somehow are afraid of going a bridge too far here? i wonder whether you believe that kind of messaging is not productive here given that ukraine is in the fight of their life? >> that messaging from the biden administration to not wanting to provoke russia and continuing where we'll draw the line as not worked to date. what does it point to?
it points to the fact that the biden administration has been looking at this situation between russia's invasion of ukraine and one the ukrainians can not win. the biden administration had to be shamed by our european allies to providing the first set of lethal weaponry. congress forced the biden administration to do it. at that point, they said ukraine would fall within 72 hours. the biden administration has to have a clear eye a full focus and a real conversation about what is needed to be provided to the ukrainians not only by ourself but by our allies to make sure that they can maintain their sovereignty. this is not what we've seen thus far from president biden. >> bryan: you said it, david, that the missile systems could be delivered. thank you for joining us. we'll see. >> arthel: as summer kicks off, a worry about a repeat of summer 2020. that's when violence was so bad that businesses in many cities boarded their doors.

>> bryan: crime continues to surge in major cities across america. this past weekend, two people were killed and two injured in a memorial day shooting in philadelphia. gun violence in new york city claimed three lives and other deadly incidents in baltimore and oklahoma. fox news contributor and defense attorney, ted williams joins us. ted, thanks for being here. we're now heading into the busiest summer months when it comes to crime. what is your forecast and where do you think we can try to fight this time around? >> good afternoon, bryan. glad to be with you. i'd like to just offer a salute to all of the veterans that are here and those that have gone before us and their families for sacrificing so much for this country. but to answer your question, bryan, i anticipate a long hot summer. my rationale behind that is
because we are short in many police departments. a lot of police officers have left police departments and they have left a void there. what we found unfortunately is that criminals have taken over and what we're going to need, bryan, i believe, is we're going to have to deputize citizens in this country to help bring crime war it is now in this country and eradicate it as best we can. >> bryan: what do you mean by deputize? >> when you see something, say something. we need citizens that if they observe crime, if actually to be able to call law enforcement and hopefully get them involved and engage law enforcement where they can make arrests.
we also need for law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges all to get on the same page. they're not because fast i can tell you, there's many times that arrests are made and before the ink is dry, these individuals are back out on the street. >> bryan: philadelphia inquirer headline today, why democrats are shifting their tone on policing two years after george floyd's murder. when i talk to people in my district, they're taking me to task. what are you doing to make sure that the police officers are back. that's a city councilmember. your thoughts. >> he's absolutely correct. we do need to get law enforcement officers engaged. we have to recruit and bring more in to eradicate crime in these various neighborhoods. >> bryan: ted, thank you. what an alarging statistics. firearms the leading cause of death for children and teens. more than 2,100 children died in
gun homicide every year. unbelievable. arthel, ted? >> arthel: thanks. has to stop. thank you for joining us on this memorial day. i'm arthel neville. i'm bryan llenas. think of all of those that died for us for our freedoms that we're enjoying today. a "your world" special starts right now. >> the grills are sizzling, the roads and airports are bustling and inflation is burning a hole in you're wallet. hello. i'm charles payne in for neil cavuto. this is a special memorial day edition of "your world." and it's an expensive world. price spikeses are over 4%. now we're past 8%. now voters are getting fed up. we'll get to the fight for congress many just a moment.
