every day. meet your needs and the needs of your family. going wild in this country is an epidemic president biden announces a. crime but his movies are preempted by the state of arizona which has already taken steps to block the reforms. european court of human rights rules that it's legal for countries to force vaccines on children in a case that's raised fears of compulsory. european medicines agency sticks to its line that the benefits of the astra zeneca kind of a job outweigh the risks but the regulator says blood clot should now be listed as a very rare side effect of the drug.
4:01 pm
life from moscow this is outing international i'm bright welcome to the program 1st for you joe biden has unveiled 6 executive orders aimed at tightening firearm controls. gun violence that the u.s. president called an international embarrassment. gun violence in this country is an epidemic whether congress acts or not i'm going to use all the resources in my disposal to keep the american people safe from gun violence but there's much more in the congress can do to help that effort. and they can do it right now so we have joe biden president of the united states talking about how there is an epidemic of gun violence in the united states and putting forward executive actions intended to address that epidemic now the 1st proposal we heard from the white house was an effort to crack down on how guns are sold he referenced ghost guns which are guns that people manufacture by they they purchase kits to make them in their homes he
4:02 pm
talked about gun show loopholes and background checks furthermore joe biden discussed what he calls the red flag legislation that exists in a number of states where if a person is deemed to be a threat to themselves or to others they are temporarily deprived of their guns at this point biden has been facing a huge amount of pressure from gun control supporters due to the fact that there has been a surge in gun violence you saw last year there were 20000 gun related deaths that took place and that is a 25 percent increase since 2019 that we've seen this surge of gun deaths other was recently an event where 5 people were killed in south carolina including 2 children and that was certainly not the 1st mass shooting that happened in 2021 let's review some of the events that have been happening in the united states of america.
4:03 pm
now it's important to note that there is certainly not unity around these moves that joe biden has proposed we've. governor of the state of arizona put together a piece of legislation prohibiting sheriffs and police officers from carrying out any order that was deemed to be in violation of the 2nd amendment of the us constitution which guarantees the right to own a firearm the state of arizona and its political subdivision supreme emitted from utilizing any financial resources were steeper snell to administer cool parade with
4:04 pm
or enforce a new law act order rule treaty or regulation of the federal government that is inconsistent with any law of the state regarding the regulation of firearms much like the vaccine passports there's a big divide between red states and blue states and we've seen vaccine passports already outlawed in texas and florida preemptively as republicans just don't see eye to eye with democrats on this gun control is yet another example of how polarized the united states is becoming in 2021. my god i'm serious the executive director of the rome paul institute for peace and prosperity welcome back to the previous administrations have tried to tackle gun control in the us with mixed results i'm grand as they sound will biden's executive orders make any impact. well it does play now but it's a slippery slope you know bad knows he doesn't have the votes in congress so he rules like a take date or he issues his own executive orders are trying to supplant the
4:05 pm
constitution in fact he said himself today that the that the amendments are not the absolute so he clearly doesn't view our constitution as absolute either but at the end of the day this is starting a slippery slope i think it's waking people up to the real agenda of the by the administration he's going to get a lot of pushback not only from red america but from red and blue america where there is strong support even in the senate among many democrats to preserve our 2nd remember freedoms you cannot think isn't it when i'm out of what he tries to do there is a pretty definite ceiling either at a state level arizona's already pushing back or in congress. that's a group that's great news in arizona and it looks like texas may try to follow suit governor rabbit it's all already denounced any moves by the president i think that will be a really of a good blow for federalism which is what this country was founded on where states control their own destinies you know if you look in the united states where gun violence takes place it's primarily in places with the strictest gun transfer
4:06 pm
control he think about detroit you think about washington d.c. it's illegal you can't get a gun there it's extremely difficult unless you're a criminal then it's quite easy and actually the safest states in the united states maine in new hampshire and idaho the state the states all 'd have constitutional carry where there are no laws no regulations on the use and ownership of firearms one of the things the president biden really wants to clamp down on august guns these are the benefits of guns that you can buy online they're all on traceable to use by i'll give you the most nefarious of criminals is there any way that the government can actually stop that kind of thing which the host already bolted or there's no evidence that goes guns are used by the most nefarious of criminals i would dispute there are plenty of of enthusiasm plenty of models makers plenty of sir. the innocent people that want to have a gun kit and make a gun or print a gun or 3 d. printing guns what it is is an infringement on people's inherent right to own
4:07 pm
firearms and that's something it may not be well understood in other countries but that's something that's deeply ingrained in american culture in american history joe biden says none of these measures violate the 2nd amendment they all all of them do of course they all do any infringement on the 2nd amendment is a violation of the 2nd amendment just like any infringement by the government on our speech is a violation of the 1st amendment this is typical double speak by joe biden this is a joe biden who's putting it if he's really interested in gun control he should be interested in government gun control because his nominee to head the alcohol tobacco and firearms administration is a former a.t.f. agent who thought that the federal government murdering innocent men women and children that waco in the ninety's was a very good thing wasn't good no problem there was no problem with that so yeah we're for gun control control of government. and i'm a cat and from the rumble piece and good to talk to you again thanks for joining us on the program thanks. thanks the european court of human rights has ruled that
4:08 pm
compulsory vaccinations for children are consistent with international law and could be regarded as necessary the rulings are related to the kind of a pandemic by their office that it could lead to tougher policies for some governments is our europe correspondent peter all of us. this case in fact started long before anybody had ever heard of covert 19 1st time it appeared in the european court of human rights was in 2013 and already been going through the court systems in the czech republic for a long time before that the complaint was brought by families in the czech republic who'd either being fined or their children had been refused entry to early years education kindergartens and nursery schools because they hadn't been vaccinated by their parents and their parents refused to have them vaccinated what the court ruled on thursday was that the finding of those parents on the floor at the
4:09 pm
compulsory vaccination program in the czech republic was not a breach of the european convention on human rights particularly when it came to article 8 which deals with respect for private life what the court ruled was that vaccinations are necessary in society the court clarified that ultimately the issue to be determined was not whether a different less prescriptive policy might have been adopted rather it was whether the check authors who use had exceeded their wide margin of appreciation in this area it concluded that the impune measures could be regarded as being necessary in a democratic society and the rules in the czech republic that dissimilar from other nations in the e.u. as well as many other nations around the world if you're sending children to kindergartens or nursery schools they have to be vaccinated against 9 different illnesses and diseases now these include incredibly serious things like measles
4:10 pm
hooping cough hepatitis b. tetanus as well as now what the court ruled on thursday and this was the 1st time that the european court of human rights is ever got involved in compulsory vaccination programs and made a ruling on them but what they said that it was in the best interest of children that they receive these vaccinations before they go into these nursery school in kindergarten classes and start mixing with all the children. the judgment emphasizes that in all decisions concerning children the best interests must be of paramount importance of regards we mean a zation the objective has to be that every child is protected against serious diseases through vaccination or by virtue of herd immunity but check health policy could therefore be said to be consistent with the best interests of the children who were its focus or while the ruling on thursday makes no reference whatsoever to covert 19 or the current situation we all find ourselves in the covert 19 pandemic has been thoroughly ground for anti vax conspiracy theorists with numerous
4:11 pm
conspiracy theories abound both online and elsewhere many of them relating to potential forced vaccination now what this ruling on thursday does from the european court of human rights is it sets precedents that obligatory vaccinations don't contravene the european court on human rights what it does not do in any way is give any european nation the right to start forcing vaccinations on any of its citizens of course it coming out during this huge vaccination program we're all going through with vaccines throughout the news all over the world right now this is why this particular ruling from one of europe's top courts has made top billing in the news we've been getting reaction to the ruling and hearing whether it could have any impact on covert shots. situation that moment is we were under enormous pressure i think of that from the government advertising campaigns from the media
4:12 pm
etc to have a jab now there are people in the media in politics who have actually called for compulsory mandatory code that they should on the grounds it's for the good of society so it is warry this judgment is it's worrying and i think the point is is that vaccines whether or not we take the vaccine should be up to the individual if we go down the line of saying look bond of true vaccinations not just for kids for measles or for tat the sort ever but it should be for adults to book over it then i think that's a slippery slope it is something very unusual for the court because the court has to arm i decide whether it is good for the society because vaccine is important for not only the person who will take the vaccine but also for other persons who called dig the vaccine into a tin the hoda unity in the case may be different for or another virus vaccine because it's not for children is for adult it's
4:13 pm
a new vaccine contrary to the vaccine. devoted to the children in the czech republic but at the un convention of the child the paramount seed principle is something under which any drafting of legislation must abide by and any rules made that do affect children must consider their welfare 1st when you're looking at compulsory kovi that scene's you not looking at those sorts of protections a big problem with coronavirus vaccination is that conspiracy theorists they are getting it wrong there is a lot of misinformation around i don't think it's going to be a compulsory vaccine in force by the government but i do think that people like airlines in the tourist industry are going to force it into the back door. the european medicines agency standing by britain's astra zeneca jab saying that the benefits outweigh the risks while noting the blood loss should be listed as rare
4:14 pm
side effects the agency has received more than 200 reports of unusual blood clots in those getting the shot that's among more than 30000000 who've been inoculated across europe over in the u.k. the authorities there say that people under the age of 30 will be offered alternatives to the astra zeneca jab due to the possible blood clot link 80 people in the country have suffered clotting after a dose 19 have died but britain's regulator is taking the same line as the european medicines agency that's what i guess the of reports. the takeaway the message that europe's health authorities want to leave you with is that it's still worth it the benefits outweigh the risks the benefits outweigh the risks others become almost a slogan for the astra zeneca vaccine earth portrait cases of unusual blood clotting following vaccination with the astra zeneca vaccine should be listed as possible side effects of the vaccine it's unfortunate start both vaccinated people
4:15 pm
and health care professionals are aware of the signs and symptoms of these unusual blood clotting to cylinders so that they could be spotted quickly to minimize any possible risks so why did it take so long i mean the rumors began months and months ago that it was all in the news on t.v. and the papers and the company kept telling everyone the same thing there's a new link between the jab and the well dive and now it says of our safety data more than 10000000 records has shown no evidence of an increased risk of billie's or deep vein thrombosis and a defined age group gender or in any particular country unfortunately there was a link and now the astra zeneca job will have either diesel was. a lot it can cause blood clots and potentially death in people as young as 8 seed the age the youngest
4:16 pm
deceased and still they say it's worth it unless of course you can go and get another job in which case probably best to go for that their words adults who are aged 18 to 29 years will who do not have an underlying health condition that puts them at higher risk from serious coben 1000 disease should be offered an alternative covert night in fact seen in preference to the astra zeneca vaccine where such an alternative is available over a dozen countries only counting the european union have suspended vaccination with the astra zeneca vaccine or that serbia can please their marketing department though i doubt that a simple rebranding is going to cleanse their reputation i would definitely say is a stupid move because changing the name which means changing your shop window right in the midst of a crisis rather than increasing trust will increase suspicion because
4:17 pm
it always indicates that there is something you want to hide so i absolutely do not understand how 'd a company comes to such a decision at the end of the day i can't help but partially agree with them the alternative waiting for another vaccine could have cost thousands of lives but only partially they let these rumors steward fester for months before coming out and admitting that essentially people were rights to be afraid and that unfortunately has done irreparable damage to the vaccination drive worldwide vaccine shortages across the e.u. prompted several member states there to question the block to join procurement scheme austria as one of them and chancellor sebastian kurds and said that he'd be in favor of buying russian sputnik the curvature of. it would help us a lot because the vaccination process would be significantly accelerated i advocate that we do this we are now coordinating this with the federal government i really
4:18 pm
hope that we will be able to acquire this vaccine as well as use it this is not only my decision but i strongly support it the european medicines agency is yet to approve the russian vaccine but former european commission president jean-claude juncker says if the regulator does give it the green light the e.u. should included in the procurement program meanwhile the russian direct investment fund which is behind the sputnik the rollout says it's now in talks with germany on supplying the job made it clear that it will go ahead with using the shot if it passes the e.u. approval process which has been dragging on for several months now cancer surgeon bob thinks that europe's allowed politics to get in the way of saving lives. we need the vaccines and the problem is it was a political initially we many people in europe didn't except the russian vaccine and sputnik is a good vaccine and yet they were coming out and saying well this is not what we want let's look at the european at alternatives and you see here the problem is the politicians have fields to cover the nations with adequate back seeing dozes
4:19 pm
and this is a problem we have we don't have enough back seems and if you see what she right now is that we're going back and asking russia for sport next we should have done that much much earlier we need all the players all the players on the table and that includes the sputnik 16 which has excellent data out there as has pfizer and as has moderna so we should have known that much earlier in order to be able to provide our. nationals with adequate vaccine those edges and now we are paying for those political shortcomings with human lives. this is also the still to come the brazilian president doubles down on his resistance to knock downs despite soaring coppa deaths we hear a bleak assessment from a doctor in brazil for this. so
4:20 pm
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confront cation let it be an arms race and of his on offense very dramatic development the only way i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. the world is driven by. one person. i think. we should ask.
4:21 pm
northern ireland's now been gripped by 6 nights of rioting pro u.k. loyalists and irish nationalists faced off amid a wave of anger over post trade barriers between the north and the republic this was the scene in belfast on wednesday a bus was told to more than $41.00 officers were injured during the clashes rocks and petrol bombs the police told an audience 1st minister in foster's urged both sides to show restraint and the british prime minister's expressed his alarm and called for dialogue. i am deeply concerned by the scenes of violence in northern ireland especially attacks on the p.s. and i who are protecting the public in business attacks on
4:22 pm
a bus driver and the assault of a journalist this way to resolve differences is through dialogue not violence or criminality meanwhile northern ireland's justice ministers blame the u.k. government for the flare up long accuse the conservatives of dishonesty of the way bracks it would affect the irish border saying they promised unfettered access while failing to work through the legal consequences she also slammed the british government's decision to suspend the northern out of protocol which was part of the u.k.'s withdrawal agreement with the e.u. aimed at ensuring an open border we spoke with jonathan tong who's a professor of british and irish politics he thinks the government made a series of false promises to the people of northern ireland. well i think the british government bodies johnson in particular have to bear a considerable amount of responsibility it was part of johnson to do went over to belfast and totally democratic party the largest party in northern ireland told the public party conference 3 years ago that it would be untold for any british government to preside over the border in the are you see for this johnson was
4:23 pm
attacking his predecessor treason make the signing of the deal with it a year for his johnson done that and since then he spends a lot of time pretending that the reason this border between great britain and northern ireland so you disagree or the symbol and feel terrible sense of betrayal over what the prime minister does don't think that boris johnson needs to go to northern ireland explain what he's done in terms of of the protocol and try and also meet with the you leaders to instigate some of the worst effects the protocol and diminish the number of checks go on groups go between great britain and northern ireland otherwise we are looking ahead to a grim some of potentially of violence in northern ireland. biological fukushima that's how a scientist describes the covert situation in brazil after more than 4000 deaths in a single day has been outlining the scale of the problem the current situation is this 3 many severe in brazil is very critical right now we are in the middle of
4:24 pm
a national hospital collapse and exponential growth of new cases in the country for the 1st time in brazilian history and april we may have more deaths in the country diverse this has never happened in the brazilians it exists even just for what we need it now is a national opt out but with 4000 that they think the brazilian people will support their call because they know we have nothing else to do it is by. on death from covert in brazil have now passed $340000.00 making a 2nd only to the united states but despite the horrific surge and the collapsing health system president also narrow insists the nation won't be put under lockdown we've been getting reaction to that in sao paolo as keypads just said that i think part of the blame is always from people getting relaxed after so long in this situation but i believe the bigger plane he's our president always makes and
4:25 pm
a path more difficult making it harder to interact with the rest of the world. that i believe it's the result of people having to relax too much after all the improvements people have to know that if it was getting better we should keep doing what was being done to improve but as it is system we brazilians are in a unique situation due to the government we have that doesn't care about the millions of people that are dying every day or even worse i even think the president celebrates. brazilian authorities that i maintain that the country will get quote back to business in a couple of months but the position we spoke to warns that's unlikely the country is not going to be back to normal in 2 of 3 months you may take half a year of war just to good and then make under control let alone to get back to normal life the government didn't work hard and off to procure to buy tens of millions of those that brazil needs to vaccinated its people so we have
4:26 pm
a limited supply and current levels 'd we have vaccinating barely a 1000000 people a day when we should be vaccinating at least 2 to 3000000 people a day so we need to double or triple the number 6 of people vaccinated 'd but the problem is the supply of vaccines that brazil has been able to acquire if we don't do anything we could be in the middle of a story of tragedy here i mean probably the largest humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century. and that's the news for now thanks for watching your next update from me in the team is in just over half an hour. while the demick no certainly no borders and is blind to nationalities. has emerged we caught up with the we don't have the facts in the whole world to be
