a millionaire who's intent on murdering people and even if he didn't have the guns the man was a certified pilot he could have used his plane and flew into the crowd clearly this was a demented individual and he wanted it to concent some carnage i have yet to hear of a law that would have prevented this man from doing what he did and i'm i'm willing to listen to possibilities were james supporters a military reporter at the daily beast he says it's unlikely it will bring about any change to us gun laws. dating back to after the virginia tech shootings you know we saw that some states did limit. magazine capacities so in new york city for instance you can have i believe it's a magazine over ten rounds you know after. that was really the only change after virginia tech after the newtown shooting you know congressional lawmakers turned down a bill that would expand background checks for gun purchases and even after the orlando
7:09 am
shooting had. lawmakers again. turned down a bill that would prevent. people terrorists that are on the terrorist watch list from purchasing firearms so it seems like every after every single massive shooting that we have there is really no action from congress so in this case with this one particular case with a bump stocks it does seem like there is bipartisan support which may or may not you know pass both the house and the senate three u.s. special operations soldiers have been killed and two others injured in an attack in a jag a joint patrol of u.s. senate jerry and troops was ambushed near the border with mali don easterbrook has more from washington d.c. . well the pentagon at this point is not releasing a lot of details about this attack what we do know from other media reports is that three u.s. commandos were killed two others were wounded this attack happened in southwest new

7:14 am
tuesday measured tone to say that the solution to the problems of catalonia is attempt to break away from the rest of spain was a political matter not a police matter he has once again suggested talks in mediation in this crisis the spanish government was very quick however to come out and say that the only way that they would consider such talks was if catalonia abandoned its attempts at a session that is something that will be deaf very difficult for the catalan government both because of the referendum results but also because if the man tries to back away from this proposed declaration of independence which could come as soon as next monday then effectively he could risk losing a process session majority in the capital and parliament meanwhile pro independence parties in catalonia are preparing to debate the regions a session from spain millions of catalans hope an independent country would remain

7:17 am
on to slightly less inspiring than the mood of the crowd what happens if you get stuck outside the european union. would not. you know. that's. not a way. to get exactly like you. like. that's what i think. when you were up all the difficult comparable questions the u.k. never asked itself borders trade agreements the rights of cattle lands in spain and spaniards in catalonia is bothering to ask about any of its but if they do jump off the cliff to independence they will have the european union to deal with it could
