5:35 am
justice is making it illegal. for business to manufacture one of these kids without a serial number. that law enforcement officials say ghost guns are increasingly used by gangs and in violent crimes, including the mass shooting in sacramento earlier this month, where six people were killed. now we're seeing ghost guns become more prevalent here in the bay area. ktvu is amended. quintana joins us from oakland with the moves local leaders are making to tackle this issue. yes so we've been seeing these so called ghost guns more and more involved. crimes here in the bay area. sam liccardo, the mayor of san jose, actually recently just passed a first of its kind gun ordinance that requires gun owners to get liability insurance, and they also have to pay a fee to the city to fund gun safety initiatives. accardo was there when biden president biden announced those stricter regulations on ghost guns. he
5:36 am
says, in order to make everyone safer. progress needs to be made not just at the city level, but also at the state and federal levels. but the challenge under federal law was that for many, many years until now regulations and the federal government only govern actually completed guns. and there was a lot of gray area about whether a kit that was partially constructed gun actually qualified as a firearm that could be regulated by federal law so that ambiguity is now eliminated. oakland has been seen this issue as well. in a twitter video put out yesterday , police chief laurent armstrong said the city is seen in an alarming amount of gun violence and more ghost guns. he called president biden's new rules that make it illegal for businesses to sell those personally manufactured guns without serial numbers or a background check. a quote tremendous step forward last year in oakland chief armstrong says nearly 300 ghost

6:14 am
the studio with us now. this deal allows pgd to avoid criminal prosecution. the utility cannot be criminally prosecuted. moving forward for two specific fires gave good morning to you. the settlement does involve the 2019 kincade fire. that burn in sonoma county and last year's massive dixie fire that burned across five different northern california counties. now, cal fire investigators say the fire in sonoma county started after a war in cable failed and snapped off the transmission tower during an extreme wind event last december. the state fine pg any $125 million. sonoma county district attorney jill ravage says this new settlement actually provides more oversight and money than a criminal case would have accomplished. we did what we could, which is we got oversight. we have consequences if they don't follow through. and we also are giving back to the community so that we can be safer and improve our well being. now, according to the press, democrat nearly 2.5 years after the fire, many victims in
6:15 am
sonoma county have not seen any money in damages from the company. although a civil case for many of those victims is currently set for november in federal court in san francisco now besides sonoma county, the settlement also includes the hema, shasta plummets, beauty and lassen counties. that's where the dixie fire burn more than 1500 square miles last year, an area bigger and all of santa clara county. pg any will pay $35 million to nonprofit organizations. this includes community groups, schools, volunteer fire departments, the other 20 million will go to individual counties, the six of them and fire victims, so no criminal charges for those two fires moving forward, but we should mention p genie still faces criminal charges, including manslaughter. for the 2020 zaugg fire that burden shasta county. four people died in that fire will send it back to you. all right. thank you, mike. the blue of northern california is calling on the state department of justice to investigate the plan by the oakland unified school district to close schools. the blue is calling the plan racially
6:16 am
discriminatory and says it disproportionately impacts black families. despite strong community opposition, the school board had voted to close seven schools and merged to others by 2023. now the complaint says, oakland unified failed to analyze the racial equity of closing the selected schools. the school district has not yet commented about the complaint. time now, 6 16 to new state report is out showing the public schools have seen declining enrollment for the fifth straight year. the california department of education says total public school enrollment dropped by more than 110,000 students this academic year compared to last year. and the big urban school districts account for more than a third of that drop. the biggest drops were in the 1st, 4th, 7th and 9th grade. a state law passed during the pandemic makes sure that school districts won't lose tax revenue as a result of lower enrollment this year. we're now seeing video of a recent traffic stop in san francisco that took
6:17 am
a strange turn. now police officer walked up to the car had pulled over and discovered there was no one inside the strange traffic stop on clement street in the city's richmond district was captured on camera. the self driving car is a cruise vehicle . that same company has a youtube video that shows first responders how to approach and interact with a driverless vehicle. can the cruise vehicle pick up on emergency lights and sirens from our vehicles? yes floyd accrue. xavi can each cruise vehicle is uniquely designed to react to first responders? well, the san francisco police officer pulled over that self driving car for not having its headlights on while driving at night cruise later tweeted, saying that the autonomous car was just as you see, it pulls away after the officer approached the car will cruise says it was just pulling to a different spot that was safer for a traffic stop. i get that, but that's weird. if
6:18 am
you're doesn't really look, i don't know. in my opinion, it looks like about the same sort of spot and it went through the intersection. but you know my first reaction. the police officers should pull in front of the car and block it. this is the last time you're moving again, right? that's maybe what they'll do, and first of all, sally didn't have their headlights on that seems like that should be an automatic switch that comes on just like our driver cars, you know? yeah. do they just switched the headlights on right when it gets dark so well. it seems they're laying down the law. you know, dave, alright in the technology , perhaps that officer dave. all right, good morning. pull in front of that car. all right. good morning, everyone. you know what if you're driving on interstate 60 80 heading down from cordelia. there's a crash at lake herman road on the way to the beneath the bridge. usually there isn't any slow traffic in this area or not a lot. so this might surprise you.
