the month... may 29th, 2022. and we'll be back in a moment. i've lived in san francisco for 20 years. i'm raising my kids here. this city is now less safe for all of us. chesa boudin is failing to hold repeat offenders accountable. he prosecuted zero fentanyl drug dealing cases, even though nearly 500 people have died of overdoses. i'm voting yes on h to recall chesa boudin now. we can't wait one more day when people are dying on our streets.
follows,with reservations, >> at arches national park, memorial day weekend is typically the busiest weekend of the year. this is what last year looked like -- the park had to shut down the entrance several times to control the crowding. >> all of the parking lots would be full, there'd be bumper to bumper traffic all along the road. so it just was a terrible experience for everybody involved and not good for the park resources too. >> kaitlin thomas is the public affairs specialist for arches located in southern utah. over the past two decades, visitation has more than doubled at the park. last year, it received a record-breaking 1.8 million visitors, which meant a lot of days felt like memorial day. how many times did you have to close that gate? >> oh, gosh, 158 times. so.ù a lot. >> wow.
and that's for hours at a time, right? >> kait: yes, yes. >> in the nearby town of moab, reservations for hotels and restaurants are hard to come by. but this year, for the first time ever, the park itself is requiring reservations. hi! welcome to arches, how're you guys doing? >> we're doing good. >> do you have your timed entry pass? >> we do. >> from april to october, tourists hoping to access arches during peak hours need to have a ticket, obtained via recreation.gov. popular time slots can get booked up months in advance. >> so with timed entry, the idea is that we take all of those visitors and we distribute them throughout the day and throughout the season so that we can hopefully mitigate the traffic and also improve those visitor experiences. >> popular parks across the country are trying similar approaches. rocky mountain in colorado is requiring timed entry reservations from now until october 10th. in california, yosemite requires them until the end of september. at parks like zion and shenandoah, certain hikes now have to be scheduled. if you're planning on driving up acadia's cadillac mountain to see the sunrise or weaving through the
mountains on glacier national park's famous "going to the sun" road, you're going to need to book in advance. >> for decades, the national parks have done a really good job with wildlife management and landscape management and ecological management and i think they're just going to have to sort of turn their focus to people management. >> brian yablonski is the ceo of the property and environment research center, which has been studying a number of possible approaches to deal with the record-setting crowds. >> um# 15% of the park visitors are crowding into 6% of the national parks. >> over the past decade, our 63 national parks have received 34% more visitors. >> we're in uncharted territory when it comes to visitation. so there's a lot of room for experimentation and creativity. >> that could mean creating more shuttle bus systems like the one already in place at zion national park. it could mean taking some cues
from the theme park world .ù .ù using technology to show wht sites at a park are less crowded. and, at some locations, it could mean reservations. while many of the timed entry programs are trial runs for now, they could become permanent. >> so i think some of those parks are going to have to to do the thing that might not be popular. what we'll lose in that process is spontaneity. i think americans like to be spontaneous. >> naturalist john muir wrote "the mountains are calling and i must go." not "the mountains are calling and i must go at 2pm on a wednesday because that's the only ticket i could get." >> the job of the national park service is to protect the land for the people. and it almost seems like the land is being protected from the people. >> moab resident michael liss first fell in love with arches on a spontaneous road trip decades ago. a spontaneous detour? >> yeah, pretty much spontaneous detour >> the idea that a reservation system might prevent others from doing the same doesn't sit right with him. >> those people are, you know, on their spontaneous journey.
so, yeah, the fact that you'd arrive here and couldn't get into arches, that's reallyppg >> and so far, under the new system, that's happened to 10-15% of visitors. >> today, you're going to need to turn around. you can come back after 5. >> those tourists can always visit outside of peak hours, or try the night before for one of several next-day tickets that are held back but that might not work for everyone's schedule. liss thinks more cars could be accommodated. the infrastructure of arches national park was designed in the 1950s. they built the one entrance, one entry road the parking lots have grown, you know, a little bit over the years, but substantially nothing has changed in 70 years. so when i look at this, it's like, isn't it time to upgrade the park? of course, building new entrances and parking lots costs money and takes time. there's already a multi-billion dollar maintenance backlog in
our parks. plus, the idea of continuing to "pave paradise" can be a tough sell. >> here in the park service, we're in the forever business. we protect these parks for perpetuity, and we want to make sure that we leave them just as they are for future generations. >> thomas and the team at arches have been encouraging visitors who show up without reservations to check out other beautiful destinations. >> can i recommend a couple of other alternatives in our area >> the story of overcrowded parks is mostly the story of a select group of super popular parks. there are plenty of under-publicized places where you can still get away from it all. only time will tell if these timed-entry systems will stick around .ù or expand to other sites. what's the feedback been so far from the visitors? 1oh, fantastic. know we have folks saying that this is the best trip to arches that they've ever had. if they've been here before. i think people are seeing that there's an improved experience here and they're having just better connections with the landscape while they're visiting. >> that sense of "connection" is
we gave zzzquil pure zzzs restorative herbal sleep. to people who were tired of being tired. i've never slept like this before. i've never woken up like this before. crafted with clinically studied plant-based ingredients that work naturally with your body. for restorative sleep like never before. what could one strand of mrna do? it could change the future of medicine. it could change the lives of millions. see what mrna could do. moderna this changes everything. >> pauley: 23 weeks into the year, we've suffered through 27 shootings in classrooms grades k-12. sadly, it's a safe guess more could be on the way.
tracy smith tells us about a new way families in one town are fighting back. >> the latest. uvalde. buffalo, new york. the gunman purchased the ar-15 illegal lil. >> and newtown, connecticut. it was used in new york and plaquemines. >> can i buy this myself and pick one up? >> sure, you be. again, all of it, again. >> why? why are we here? if not to try to make sure that fewer schools and fewer communities go through what sandy hook has gone through. what uvalde is going through.
>> chris murphy is from connecticut home to the sandy hook elementary school in newtown. >> i am here on this floor to beg, to literally get down on my hands and knees and beg my colleagues. find a path forward here. >> senator ted cruz of texas shortly after the school shooting in uvalde. >> the policies the democrats are proposing, they wouldn't have stopped this crime or any others. they're not focused on stopping crimes. their solution is to try to take away your firearms. >> please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy. >> four months after the sandy hook shooting, francine wheeler, with her husband david, made an impassioned plea. >> sometimes, i close my eyes, and all i can remember is that awful day waiting at the sandy hook volunteer firehouse for the boy who would never come home >> pauley: what were you hoping for at that point?
if >> if i could have people empathize with me as a parent, then maybe you would vote for the background check. and if you bought a gun at gun show and if you bought a gun on the internet, you'd have a background check. that's what we were fighting for. rp. >> mr. mcconnell, no. >> later that month, those gun law amendments were rejected by the senate. >> the amendment is not agreed to. >> the wheelers began looking for other ways to make change. >> this is beautiful. a lot of them are, like, i don't know what that is, but it's awesome. >> that's what abstract art is all about, right? >> that's right. he was an abstract artist. >> we will never stop being ben's parents. it's just that our parenting experience is now frozen. >> their son, ben, was six years old when he was killed. >> in the small classroom where our son was in school, law enforcement recovered 80 casings. eighty. >> all from one ar-15 style
rifle. in total: 154 rounds in less than five minutes. >> if i had been told when ben was born that i would only get six years with him, would i have done it? absolutely, unquestioningly, yes. but what happens after that is part of his legacy. right? what do we have to do to make sure no other mother and father ever go through this? >> what the wheelers and eight other sandy hook families did, at first, seemed impossible. they sued the gun maker, remington arms, and, in february, they settled the lawsuit for 73 million dollars. it's the largest payout by a gun company to victims of a mass shooting. who else do you all blame? >> the gun company. , for sure. >> earlier this month, the family of andre mackneil who was killed in the buffalo shooting, announced they too will sue remington arms which made the gun used at the supermarket.
>> it's a weapon designed for war. >> one of their lawyer's first calls was to this man. how much did you know about guns going into this case? >> if there was such a thing as less than zero, i would say that. >> nothing? >> nothing about guns, nothing about gun law >> josh koskoff, represented the sandy hook families. he says he approached the case like puzzle. first, he studied everything he could about the ar-15 style rifle. what did you learn about that gun? what is the ar15? >> it's the weapon that the united states military considers the most effective, efficient, lethal weapon for its soldiers. >> the ar-15 was developed by armalite as a military rifle in the 1950s. ar, commonly thought to stand for assault rifle, in fact stands for armalite rifle early in the 1960s, the department of defense field tested the weapon. >> this is not for the faint of heart. but it is important to know that this is no ordinary
firearm. a back wound, which caused the thoracic cavity to explode. stomach wound which caused the abdominal cavity to explode. chest wound from right to left destroyed the thoracic cavity. >> so you can't help but think about these little six- and seven-year-olds. >> right. >> in the late 60s, a semi-automatic version was made for civilians. and by the time of the sandy hook massacre, remington arms and their bushmaster brand, had the most popular ar-15 style rifles on the market. >> up until 2005, they sold about 100,000 units a year. by 2012, the year of the shooting, they were up to 2.1 million. and the weapon itself didn't change. so what changed? the marketing. >> there was another change that may have emboldened gun manufacturers. a little talked about law, passed in 2005. known as plcaa protection of lawful commerce in arms act it's a way to protect gun companies from liability for shootings.
>> it basically eliminates the common law rights that people would otherwise have to bring a lawsuit against automobile industry or a tobacco industry or a pharmaceutical industry. >> but the law contains a few exceptions including one that allowed koskoff to go after how the gun was marketed.ù >> until our case, i think people thought of it as a perfect immunity that couldn't ever be-- overcome. but they engaged in marketing that anybody would say was just beyond the pale-- immoral, unethical. >> koskoff says remington not only aimed ads like this at lonely young men they highlighted the gun's ability to inflict mass casualties. >> this one says, "forces of opposition bow down. you're single-handedly outnumbered." >> there's no noncriminal use for making your forces of opposition bow down in our neighborhoods and our towns. that's an assault, period. >> according to koskoff, the key to the case was tying the remington marketing to the 20-year-old shooter at the sandy hook elementary school.
he didn't go out and buy the gun, his mom bought the gun and then just left it unlocked >> well, that's the way marketing works. marketing isn't targeting the purchaser; they're targeting the end user. no better example of this than disney. disney's not marketing their products to us. they're marketing it to our kids. they didn't aggressively market their combat weapon to a suburban housewife. they aggressively marketed a combat weapon to her troubled son. >> the sandy hook shooter was a frequent player of the video game call of duty. koskoff had played the game with his own son and saw something familiar in a crime scene photograph. this is the floor of the first-grade classroom? and it's two 30-round magazines duct taped together? >> correct. >> from call of duty, you knew what this looked like? >> and i knew what the purpose was. >> and the purpose? >> when you were playing the game, it allowed for almost zero downtime to "change mags." >> so you fire 30 shots, flip it-- >> you could kill 60 people with this instead of 30 with almost no lag.
>> sf off says remington arms licensed the ar-15 style gun for the video game. it was part of the gun company's marketing plan. >> this allowed children and teenagers to experience what it was like to use a combat weapon you could feel the vibrations of the controller. before this, to actually f-- understand how a weapon worked or felt, you'd have to go to-- a gun range. and no-- gun seller is gonna have-- a child come in and test out an ar-15. but they don't have to anymore >> so a kid could be sitting on his couch, feeling what an ar-15 felt like to shoot? >> there are kids sitting on the couch right now doing exactly that. >> like many parents, david and francine wheeler had not seen any of the remington marketing, until this case. >> i was like-- >> i was aghast. >> "i-- you've gotta be kidding me." >> unbelievable. my very first thought was, dok e
my son is gone. >> our legal system has given us some justice today. >> josh koskoff says the settlement's 73 million dollars will be distributed among the nine plaintiff families. and remington's internal memos, also turned over in the agreement, will be released to the public. what will these documents show? >> it'll just teach us a lesson that we've all learned which is that greed kills. >> he says the case is about corporate misconduct, not politics. >> this company just crossed a line. and it exposes all of us to risk. the shooter at sandy hook didn't line up children of gun owners and children of non-gun owners, or democrats and republicans. he shot everybody. >> gun industry representatives argue the remington suit is unusual because it was settled after remington went bankrupt, in a statement, the national shooting sports foundation, a firearm trade association, said: "this settlement orchestrated by insurance companies has no impact on the strength and efficacy of (plcaa) which remains the law of the land.
plcaa will continue to block baseless lawsuits that attempt companies for the criminal acts of third parties." when people say, "how do you live?" i say, "well, how do i not live?" >> francine and david wheeler have always said they want to save other families from going through what they have. the events of recent weeks show their lawsuit hasn't stopped mass shootings, but, they say, it's a start. >> we hope that this will make changes in the future. i have hope. i always have. i've never given up hope. otherwise, i probably would have never left my bed. >> and you're still hopeful? >> yeah, and i grieve. i have both at the same time. every day. but i have hope. yeah.

of its new place in the public wing cmunities that will "never be the same". while the town mourned the 19 children and two teachers who were murdered last tuesday, days of false and conflicting statements by authorities finally gave way to an admission that, despite policy to quickly confront an active shooter, law enforcement waited forty minutes outside a classroom door while children, trapped with a man armed with a military-style assault rifle, desperately called 911. >> if i thought it would help, i'd apologize. >> on the other side of the state, in houston, protestors chanted outside the national rifle association's annual meeting. though signs promised "14 acres of guns," firearms were notably banned from the meeting hall when former president donald trump spoke, calling for more
weapons in schools. >> "it's time to finally allow highly-trained teachers to safely and discreetly concealed carry. >> other politicians backed out of the event, as did daniel defense, manufacturer of the rifle used in the uvalde massacre. yesterday in buffalo, new york, mourners, including vice president kamala harris, gathered to say farewell to victims of the top's supermarket mass shooting, where ten were gunned-down just fifteen days ago. and back here in uvalde, president joe biden and the first lady are expected soon.ù to meet with families and community leaders.ù to help the healing begin.ù

>> pauley: now on display all over miami colorful paintings, murals, and displays by the artist known as britto.ù whose work, faith salie tells us, you may be seeing a lot more of.ù ♪♪ >> in artist romero britto's world, every surface evokes a smile, and a gaze in any direction lifts the spirits. his colorful creations have made it to the superbowl, the world cup, and the olympics, as well as cruise ships and onto, well, cars that cruise.ù
>> hi! nice car! >> but there is one place where britto is everywhere.ù >> to-- to look at you-- >> right. >> you -- you are miami. >> oh, thank you. >> miami's sidewalks and skyline glitter with brittos. over the years, he's been asked to design and decorate city vehicles, parking meters, hospitals , even lottery tickets.ù >> britto scratchoffs, the art of winning! >> why-- why do you think miami has embraced you? >> i think because the people that makes this city also the spirit is very happy- and-- most of the people that move here, they come here to make -- a new beginning or something sorta like that. >> romero britto was one of them, leaving behind the brazilian favelas, or slums. born in 1963, he was raised by a single mother with nine children to feed, which wasn't always easy.
>> summertime in brazil there is a moment that there's a lot of ants and we--we used to eat the ants. you would eat ants? yes, yeah fried ants with butter. like it's a big ant.ù you know one thing i have to say is that all this difficult time that i had growing up, my art was always there for me. >> he saved enough money to make it to miami, but not much else. too poor for canvas, his early work was done on newspaper and sold on the sidewalk >> it was really tough. >> why? >> well, because imagine a young guy, you know, a young person, , not knowing what's gonna happen, you know, in the future, you know. it's just like, you're just, like, trying to find a place in the world. and i was-- as an artist, i was trying, you know, to find the place for myself. >> with the miami sun and surf as his backdrop, britto began adding more color.
the brighter the palette, the more people were drawn to the work.ùhis vivid pop art style caught the eye of an executive who, in 1989 was looking for artists to design print ads for his vodka campaign.ù alongside absolut haring and absolut warhol would be.ù absolt britto why did the absolut and change everything? >> if you do one painting and somebody have -- let's say you have in your house, only your close friends can come and see it. but now you're gonna put, like, in front of millions of people in-- in magazines, it's much better, right? >> corporate partnerships and multiple licensing deals followed. you really can't talk about britto a-r-t without bringing up britto i-n-c,- which the company says generates $250 million in retail sales annually >> the britto barbie came during the world cup and she's-- you know, she's ready to play, you know, soccer with the stilettos. >> yeah, she has heels on!
( laughter ) >> yeah. >> do you think that there should be no line between art and commercialization? >> i think about everything is commercialized. i mean-- i mean, w-- what-- what is not commercialized? i mean, if you're gonna go to any museum, they have a store. what-- what is wrong for an artist to be able to be part of that? >> and while the pope might sip tea from a britto cup, not everyone thinks britto's work is a blessing. so, how do you feel about some art critics who don't take your work seriously? >> a lotta people think th-- th-- the art has to be, you know, depressed, you know, to be serious, you know i just don't pay attention for that. i just do my art, you know. >> he does his art in this 60,000 square foot building, dubbed the britto palace by the artist and the 90 employees who work here. it bursts with products, new pieces, and memorabilia. and it's also the place where britto comes every day to put creations.ù these are-- you call these brittos, where you sign your name--
>> well, like this -- i mean, some pieces, sometime i do, like, i repeat my name many times, you know, but, or maybe just the last two ts. actually this is the first time that i did a painting of a brush because the brush is so helpful, right? i mean, and-- so i'm celebrating the brush in here, so. >> and there was a time when you were poor to use brushes-- >> to buy a brush. i know, yeah. i know. now i have a lotta brushes. which is great. >> i should think so!
sprsh >> on the road to paradise.ùyou can see signs of a comeback.ù ad if you want to hear what that sounds like.ù "ma'am are you finding everything you need ok?" all you have to do is visit the only hardware store in town.ù >> if i ever get a house.ù i'm gonna have these.ù >> well we're working on getting ours almost done.ù we're maybea month away. >> mike petersen manages this ace hardware store that somehow survived the worst fire in california history. but like most people here petersen lost his home. >> a year ago those three homes weren't there. >> now when he looks out at his neighborhood, he sees all the skeptics being proven wrong. i think a lotta people had their doubts about how many people would rebuild it's nice to see the progress for sure. >> rebuilding this town nestled in the foothills of the sierra nevada was far from certain
after paradise was lost to the inferno known as the campfire. the 2018 blaze killed 85 people and destroyed nearly 20,000 homes and businesses. >> so the old house sat here.ù >> petersen is not only rebuilding.ùhe's building something he hopes will survive any future fires. do you feel like you will worry less about your home? >> yes. and my insurance company loves it. >> he and his wife are about t move into this two-bedroom house that looks a bit like a modern barn. they like the architecture but the real selling point is that it's built not to burn. >> it's noncombustible. it's a product that you can't really light on fire. >> vern sneed is the owner of design horizons, a company building what it calls the q-cabin, short for quonset hut. it takes its name from quonset point, a naval facility in rhode
island, where these corrugated metal roofed buildings were first made during world war ii. sneed says today's version costs about the same as a house built with conventional 2x4s. so none of this can burn >> correct. we would have a noncombustible siding out here. then we've got our noncombustible sheathing. then we've got our noncombustible structure. so you would have to get through all of these noncombustible layers before you got to the inside. scientists say most homes ignite in wildfires because embers get into window frames or in between roof shingles. with the q-cabin, those entry points don't exist. >> and so i understand why you won't call this fireproof because you could never guarantee that. but this is about as close as you're gonna get? >> this is about as close as you can get. >> of course getting too close to nature is part of the problem. communities like paradise are known as the wildland urban interface.ù where the great outdoors collides with someone's front door.
>> you need to go! >> nearly 50 million homes are in these areas which are prone to wildfires. when you see all of the natural disasters especially a state like this is facing and what we know is coming as climate change accelerates,is this the future of home building? i think noncombustible housing is the future. >> the campfire left more than burned trees and empty lots behind.ùit also transformed a lt of the people here. >> i think people just let go of their-- their need to control. because we all learned that there is no such thing. >> i it's so exciting. >> gwen nordgren is president of paradise lutheran church. it's rebuilding, too. >> this is our gorgeous building. >> a 4-plex q-cabin will replace the parsonage building that once housed their pastor an was lost in the fire. given what you've gone through, what is it like for people to see something being built back there? >> well, it isn't just something. it's something like this. we're so excited about it because its all gonna be new and beautiful and fire resistant
which is on most people's mind. its really happening! everybody is so excited! >> they plan to rent it out to 4 families to generate income for the church.ùwhich lost nearly half its members after the fire. but now people are flooding back.ùmaking paradise the fastet growing city in california. >> nobody who's here gave up. this is paradise, brother. nobody gives up. there's a spirit in this town that was here before the fire and that's here now and it never went away. right now, we're all feelin' a little strapped. but weekends are still all about grilling. and walmart always keeps prices low on our fresh ingredients. so you can save money and live better.

fishers of our torn country and ask americans to set aside their differences and unit, if only for these 24 notes. musicians, get ready, for the third annual nationwide performance of taps. we originally started taps across america to move focus away from the hamburgers and hot dogs and back to the real purpose of memorial day, to honor. and by the thousands, musicians have answered our call. 86-year-old paul freeburg of surprise, arizona, will be playing for a second year. >> because i love our country. so, actually, there is no way i could say no. >> the frisbee brothers of new castle, delaware, will be back again, too. >> a lot of men in our family have served in the army -- our great grandfather, our grandfather and our grandfather. >> and eagle scout ricky lazaro is returning but he lives near
uvalde, texas, so he will be playing with a new purpose this year. >> it's deeply saddened me, sir. playing taps is the least i can do. >> the reasons they play are as varied as the landscapes on which they stand. some performers also are heard by hundreds, while others, like lori williams of moriarty, new mexico, play for no audience at all -- at least none apparent. >> i don't think it matters where you play because those who need to hear it hear it. >> so you're playing for those above? >> absolutely. nd that's the audience. our omnipresent past, who we honor with this coast-to-coast concert. but, of course, it's also for the living, who this week, especially, may need this 24-note reminder that there are still some things we all stand for. and one thing that will forever
fanduel and draftkings, two out of state corporations making big promises to californians. what's the real math behind their ballot measure for online sports betting? 90% of profits go to the out of state corporations permanently. only eight and a half cents is left for the homeless. and in virginia, arizona, and other states, fanduel and draftkings use loopholes to pay far less than was promised. sound familiar? it should. it's another bad scheme for california.
>> pauley: after every mass shooting, sadly, it seems the answer is there is no answer, no way to stop the violence. six years ago, seth doane traveled to one country that actually seems to have found a way. we decided it was worth a second look, it's said that when you lose your parents you lose your past. when you lose your child you lose your future. >> carolyn loughton flung herself on top of her daughter when a gunman started shooting, but it was not enough to save sarah's life. she was just 15? >> she had just turned 15, yesùu >> one american is among the injured in what is being described as the worst massacre
this century. a lone gunman with a high powered rife opened fire.ù >> the shooting, in a cafeé in the tasmanian town of port arthur happened 26 years ago.ù but telling the story decades later still makes loughton shake sh?t's it like being in a mass it'sntevery that're and there's another life gone. and bang, there's another life gone. and bang and when is it gonna be my turn? >> loughton was shot. this is actually me. >> this is you on the stretcher? .ùand did not know for hours her daughter had died this is what's left of that caée where the gunman started shooting. in the end, 35 people were killed. and it rocked australia.
it came just six weeks after a new prime minister had been elected. >> i thought to myself, if i don't use the authority of this newly acquired office to do something, then the australian people are entitled to think, "we'll this bloke's not up to much". as to the question of gun control laws -- >> so, then-prime minister john howard, a conservative politician and close friend of george w. bush pushed throughpin just 12 days after the massacre. >> the hardest things to do in politics often involve taking away rights and privileges from your own supporters. rifles and shotguns forced people to present a legitimate reason and wait 28 days to buy a firearm. and perhaps most significantly
called for a massive, mandatory gun buyback. australia's government confiscated and destroyed nearly 700,000 firearms reducing the number of gun owning households by half. >> people used to say to me, " you violated my human rights by taking away my gun." and i'd tell the guy "i understand that. will you please understand the argument, the greatest human right of all is to live a safe life without fear of random murder. >> consider this -- if we tally public mass shootings that have killed four or more people in the united states there have been well over 100 since the port arthur tragedy. but, in australia, there has been just one in the 26 years since their gun laws were passed. plus gun homicides have decreased by 60%. >> is incontestable that gun-related homicides have
fallen quite significantly in australia, incontestable. >> it's clutching at straws. john howard just simply didn't like guns. >> former senator david leyonhjelm left howard's political party in protest over the strict gun laws. he insists they've had little effect. >> there could've been something done about keeping firearms out of the hands of people with a definite violent potential. but, instead, all firearm owners were made to pay the price. i don't think there's any relationship between the availability of guns and the level of violence. >> and to critics who say, "you can't say that these changes in gun deaths happened because of this legislation"... >> well, i can say that because all the surveys indicate it. the number of deaths from mass shootings, gun-related homicide has fallen. gun related suicides have fallen. isn't that evidence? or are we expected to believe that was all magically going to happen? come on.
>> this one's where i keep the pistols and the rifle ammunition and the rifle bolts. >> lawyer and winemaker greg melick showed us where he locks up his weapons. >> if the weapons are in here the ammunition's in there. >> you have them locked separately. >> yes >> locking up guns and ammunition in separate safes is another regulation as are surprise inspections by police. melick had to part with some of his prized guns in the buy-back. how many firearms do you still own? >> i knew you were gonna ask me that question. i should've checked. i don't know. >> the answer? about two dozen. >> this is a browning 9 millimeter -- >> which he uses for sport, hunting, and shooting pests on his vineyard. >> riesling up until the road. >> melick sees gun ownership not as a right but a "privilege".ù >> i'd be very uncomfortable going back to the way it was before, when anybody could go in and buy a firearm.ù >> really? why? >> quite frankly, i find it surprising that you as an american ask me a question like
that. it's just bizarre the number of people getting killed in the united states. and you have these ridiculous arguments: "well, people carry guns so they can defend themselves. >> but this is being said by a gun owner you someone who shoots for sport. >> yeah, i have a genuine reason to be using firearms. >> from tasmania.ù to sydney.ù o carolyn loughton's living room: >> the bullet went into my scapula.. >> we kept asking if there were lessons for the u.s. in all of this: >> i am loath to comment. but my question is, "how is it going for you over there?" but i can't answer that for you. my heart goes out to all of you over there in america. life is so short. and all and every one of us is somebody's child. and when we see what's happening, your heart bleeds.

racism is indeed the key problem faced by the people of this country and the threat of fascism is growing. >> for half a century, angela davis has been sounding alarmsùu >> there is a proliferation of police assaults on the black community all over the country. >> alarms that are still going off today. >> those who still defend the supremacy of white male hetero-patriarchy had better watch out! >> of course i love being a revolutionary. i love being radical, it's important to be radical. >> the roots of that radicalism can be traced to her upbringing in birmingham, alabama. >> i grew up in a world that was entirely organized according to the dictates of white supremacy. i understand you grew up in a street that was known as dynamite hill because of the amount of terrorist bombings when black families moved into that community. >> my very first memories as a
child are the sounds of dynamite. and then also the fear of watching my father bring his gun out when we thought that the ku klux klan might be assaulting our home. >> miss davis was a phi beta kappa at brandeis university in boston, she did graduate work in germany and san diego. >> what does he mean when he talks about the socialization of production.ù >> by the age of 26, davis was an assistant professor of philosophy at ucla. she had joined the black panther party and the communist party. and that made her a target of california governor ronald reagan. >> when the regents finally decided to fire me, i said it was obvious that there was racism involved. the very first press conference i held in the immediate aftermath of my firing at ucla, i think my eyes were wide open, and my knees were shaking under the table. and today people look at that and they say, "oh, you were so much more militant then." and i said, "no, i was just afraid."
>> gunfire came from automatic rifles, shotguns and pistols. >> a year later.ùa bloody courthouse siege brought her worldwide attention, though she wasn't even there. an attempt to free the so-called 'soledad brothers,' a group of inmates accused of killing a prison guard, ended in a shootout. >> when it was over, judge haley was dead, two of the inmates were dead. >> the guns used in the attack were traced to davis. she said she had bought them for her security team after getting death threats. and she went into hiding. >> the fbi has put black militant angela davis on its list of ten-most-wanted fugitives. >> why did you run? >> i didn't have a choice. all of my comrades, and friends, and i were aware of the ways in which people who were trying to turn themselves in to the police had been killed. >> the fbi caught up with her at a hotel in manhattan. she was put at times in solitary confinement, while around the world protesters called for her release.
then she was extradited to california. >> miss davis entered the courtroom, turned and gave a black power salute to the gallery. >> davis was charged with conspiracy, kidnapping, and murder. she faced the death penalty. >> outside there were a thousand of ms. davis' supporters shouting, "free angela." they pledged to be here as long as she's in court. >> the moment was a long time coming. the jury had deliberated for 13 hours. >> an all-white jury delivered its verdict on june 4th, 1972. >> the tension was electric waiting for the clerk to read the verdicts. the first charge was murder: 'not guilty.' she was acquitted on all counts. >> it was not until that moment that i realized that i had a future ahead of me. i would simply like to thank all of you who struggled so long and hard for my freedom. >> davis set off on a tour of the u.s., as well as the eastern
bloc and soviet union. >> i bring greetings from the communist party to the soviet people. >> she would leave the party twenty years later. >> when i left the communist party i made it very clear that although i may no longer be a communist with a capital c, i remain a communist with a small c. historical experiments don't necessarily produce what we want them to. >> the 16 months in jail before her acquital had given davis a new commitment. >> i have come to think about my incarceration as a gift, witnessing the ways in which other women in prison were being treated. that really consolidated what i think has been my vocation. >> she has since dedicated her life to the issue of prisons.ùnt reforming them, but abolishing them. there are words like "defund" or "abolish." at the same time that they elevate a cause, they also create such division.
why not advocate for reform? >> well, i really try to learn from history. so if someone made the argument that "abolition is too strong a term." i would remind people that during the era of slavery there were those who made the very same argument. the united states has 4-percent of the world's population but 20-percent of the world's prisoners. 38% of the u.s. prison population isblock. what does a world post-prison look like? >> my question would be, what would a world have to look like in order not to require the persistent interventions of police and imprisonment? we need better education. we would need a better health care system. we would need a better world. so abolition urges us to expand and make more capacious our very vision. >> angela davis is still writing, still teaching.
after 50 years of fighting the same fights, it may seem the more things change, the more the causes remain the same. ( chanting plief "black lives matter" ) >> but angela davis is still energized and optimistic. there are so many issues that you've fought against that seem current. you were fighting against them 50 years ago. how do you not lose hope? >> no change is possible without hope. no movement is possible without hope. we have to march on with the unshakeable confidence that we will win our fight for a new society, our fight for a society where freedom, justice, equality, abundance, dignity and happiness belongs to all.

>> pauley: on this memorial day weekend, some thoughts from the chief of staff of the united states air force, general charles brown. >> this isn't about me. memorial day isn't about just anyone who wears the uniform. it's about honoring those who were wearing the uniform when they gave their lives for our nation and its ideals, so we can spend each day doing what we love, the ultimate measure of freedom. for 75 years, our air force has played a defining role in the outcome of every conflict our country has faced. but it has not been without sacrifice. i experienced the pain of loss for the first time in my military career when my friend, first lieutenant josh levin, died in an aircraft accident over the philippines.
we were lieutenants together at kusan air base, rok, and josh had planned to attend my wedding the following year. this is a familiar pain for so many others. earlier this mthmewith thers anthers,ndd ves, sons and, and others whose loved ones died in service to our nation.erratee who gave their lives and to their families, who will always feel the pain of loss, and i am proud to lead an all-volunteer force comprised of airmen representing all walks of life and from all across this great nation. for each of our service members who has raised their right hand and taken the oath of office or oath of enlistment, i take solace in their selfless service and reflect on the bible verse, "whom shall i send, and who will go for us? then i said, here i am! send me." each morning on my way to the pentagon, i drive past arlington national cemetery, and small,
stone markers that represent those who wore the uniform, who said, "send me." it is a daily reminder of what memorial day is about. and it inspires me to work harder to ensure our airmen have what they need to protect the freedoms we all enjoy. god bless. day sale on the sleep number 360 smart bed. rial why choose proven quality sleep from sleep number? because every green thumb, 5k, and all-day dance party starts the night before. the sleep number 360 smart bed senses your movements and automatically adjusts to help keep you both comfortable all night and can help you get almost 30 minutes more restful sleep per sler takeo special edition smart bed, queen now only $1,999. have to do is sl plus 0% interest for 36 months, and free home delivery when you add a base.ends monday. suffering from sinus congestion, especially at night? try vicks sinex. unlike most sinus treatments it provides instant relief that lasts up to 12 hours. vicks sinex contains a powerful decongestant
