tv   Studio B With Shepard Smith  FOX News  April 10, 2013 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT

12:00 pm
>> megyn: lots of reaction to "kelly's court." whose side are you on? thanks for watching. >> shepard: thanks. the news begins anew on "studio b." huge news in d.c. n gun debate. lawmakers from both sides reach a deal to reduce gun violence ahead of a senate vote. any moment north korea could follow through with threats to launch a missile. that's the word from officials. a live report from pentagon on the next move. the stabbing spree yesterday on a college campus in texas, the suspect claims he fantasized about killing people since he was in elementary school. it's all ahead unless breaking news changes everything on "studio b."
12:01 pm
first, background checks are not gun control, they're common sense. those are the words the pennsylvania republican senator pat toomey announcing a bipartisan deal that could build support for prevention of gun violence. he joined joe man chen in supporting expanded background checks on gun purchases, expanding checks to coveralls commercial sales, including gun shows and on line. it would not require checks for private purchases such as a sale between relatives. the announcement a day after families who lost loved ones is he newtown massacre went to capital. the senator says that tragedy changed america's hearts and minds. >> this amendment will not ease the pain of the families who lost their children that day. but nobody here, not one of us in this great capital of ours
12:02 pm
with a good conscience could sit by and not try to prevent it from happening again. >> with debates set for tomorrow, despite previous threats of a republican filibuster. doug is live in the d.c. newsroom. one side things it's too much and one side thinks it's not enough. >> a lot of pushback from both sides. a risky vote for any senator from a pro gun rights state so some senators are signaling they'll vote against it. >> i have declared my intention to resist an immediate vote on new restrictions that serve primarily to limit the freedoms of law abiding citizens rather than reduce violent crime. unfortunately the current gun control proposals would do just that. >> other gun state republicans doubt there are enough votes to block the bill. >> i think there will be a
12:03 pm
number of senators who will vote against proceeding to the schumer bill. i'm one of them. i don't believe that will be successful in stopping consideration of the gun control legislation. >> its sponsors admitted it's a tough balancing act. >> i'm a gun owner and the rights in the second amendment are important to me personally as they are to so many people across pennsylvania. my record shows this. i got to tell you, i don't consider criminal background checks to be gun control. >> some conservative state senators fear universal background checks or approaching them are a gateway to a gun registry with a permanent record of all guns and who owns them. something people don't want to see. >> shepard: something not suggested by anyone. 90% of americans in public opinion polls are for universal background checks and some
12:04 pm
republicans are following along. >> we're expecting republican defections, especially from moderate state republicans. susan colins of maine likes the amendment. senator mccain indicated the same. some democrats like mark prior in arkansas, max baucus in montana face tough reelection battles. thank you. with us yesterday, if you watched the aftermath of the stabbing spree in -- near houston, texas. the suspect told investigators he fantasized about stabbing to death people since he was 8 years old. that's the word from the sheriff. the suspect is now 20. his name a dylan quick. students called him shy and said he carried stuffed animals with him on campus outside houston. >> there are no finds he was a
12:05 pm
problem student. he had many of the faculty who had him reported he was a good student and worked in the public library. there was no signs on the college campus there was anything amiss. >> the reports the suspect was the target of bullying but the sheriff wouldn't confirm that and he did say he planned his attack for some time. witnesses say yesterday morning he stabbed classmate after classmate, many in the neck and face. students said they could see blood dripping down the stairs. according to investigators, chards of a blade turned up in one of the victims. the suspect did not escape. one of the people who tackled him snapped this photo and posted it on line. actually on one of his sites. now officials are seeking more answers about the student described as a nice guy. but kind of out there. trace gallagher in our west coast news hub. it's my understanding we learned there's surveillance tape of this whole attack?
12:06 pm
>> reporter: yeah. the sheriff says the tape is important for a couple reasons. it shows the violent attack in progress giving a step-by-step of how it went down and how the victims appeared to be chosen at random. and two, because the tape positively i.d.'s dylan quick as the slasher. one victim thought he was coming up to draw on her face when he slashed her. there was some question about exactly what type of weapon this was. today the sheriff cleared that up. listen. >> the weapon is more accurately described to be a razor utility knife that x-acto makes some of. we don't know the brand but it is better described to be a razor utility knife. >> reporter: that raiders knife had interchange able blades and police say they found an additional knife inside
12:07 pm
dylan's backpack. >> shepard: do we know if the suspect indicated there was something that set him off? >> he would only tell police he had been planning this for some time but they were surprised how matter of fact he was going over the crime details and how forthcoming he was with information. remember, he reportedly told a fellow student at the campus police station yesterday that he wanted to go on this killing spree but his blanking blade broke. and he also may have signaled he was about to do this. listen to the sheriff again. >> my office received an email from a concerned citizen saying there may have been some conversation on a chat room that resembled closely what we contended with yesterday. >> reporter: he says it goes back to the saying, if you see something, say something. all the victims are expected to
12:08 pm
live. dylan quick has undergone a mental health situation. >> shepard: trace gallagher, thank you. let's take this to our criminal defense attorney, evangeline gomez. i don't know where you begin. what would you do? >> well, at this point we can't confirm he's represented by counsel. based on what we're hearing, that he's going to be charged with three counts of aggravated assault we can assume he's going to use a insanity defense. the issue is texas has a very difficult standard when you proving insanity. it's not going to be easy for him. and what he's going to have to show, he's going to have to prove to the jury that he didn't understand the stabbing was wrong. >> shepard: that's a tough -- that's a high hurdle. >> is absolutely is. we've heard reports he's deaf, he suffered from poor social skills but we can't confuse that
12:09 pm
with insanity. >> shepard: do you have to get to a motive -- you don't really, do you? >> we're hearing he intended to do this. so it wasn't like a burst that just happened or he -- something in his mind went off or something set him off. that's important. >> shepard: when you go to try to defend him, i guess you have to take in consideration the fact the sheriff's department knew about this for a while. >> well, we've heard the sheriff say they received a report somebody informed them he had planned to do this and a video confession. >> shepard: now you have the videotape of him going through the halls and doing it. i don't know how you -- >> neil: i don't know what type of defense will be invoked. >> shepard: something -- >> that's going to be successful. >> shepard: uh-huh. or a five month trial like on the other network. good grief. a fox urgent. great news from wall street, it's happening again. the big board, the dow's up 10
12:10 pm
at -- 130 and new record territory. i think this would be the 11th 11th record high close of the year. i think. we're looked a up. but astounding numbers when you consider how much we have recovered in the past -- since the great bust. if you bought an index fund then and put into in it, you would be doing mighty nice. it's hard to imagine we're flirting with 15,000. we're just 200 points away after the federal reserved -- they usually put them out at 2:00 but a spokesman says folks accidentally saw them and they released the minutes ahead of trading. no major news but stocks soared on word the fed will continue to pump billions into the economy. the china inflation rate wasn't as high as thought so they're not raising interest rates. the president officially

tobacco products. that would fund a preschool program. the president has met republicans more 0 than halfway on deficit reduction but opponents disagree. mitch mcconnell called the plan another left wing wish list. wendell goler is live at the white house. how is the president justifying more spending? >> the president's aides say you can't continue adding trillion dollars a year budget deficits to the national debt but you can't grow the economy with a crumbling infrastructure. he offered republicans the same deal they rejected last year because he couldn't back away but aides made it clear he knows he won't get all of it. the president says neither should republicans continue tax loopholes that benefit higher income americans and cut programs for the poor and middle class. >> if you're serious about deficit reduction there's no

skews to keep the loopholes open. they don't grow our economy, they don't put people to work. all they do is allow folks already well off and well connected to game the system. >> the president says if we want to preserve medicare we have to make changes but they don't have to be as drastic as republicans want. if we want to keep them manageable, we should make them noun. >> shepard: republicans are reacting strongly to this. >> florida senator marco rubio called it a blueprint for recession. house speaker john boehner says the budget would raise taxes almost twice as much as the president claims and cut a fraction of spending. he has another problem with the budget. >> unfortunately the president's budget never comes to balance. every family has to balance its budget. washington should as well.

the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. the federal government has spent more than what it's brought in in 55 of the last 60 years. >> reporter: speaker boehner applauded the president's proposal to slow spending on social security and medicare but they shouldn't be hostage to higher taxes. >> thank you much. the mail will still arrive on saturdays for now. officials at the cash strapped u.s. postal service backed down from a plan to cut out all weekend deliveries. they said they had no choice after congress upheld a ban on five day only delivery last month. keep in mind the postal service lost $16 billion just last year. in a statement, the board of governors said delay responsible changes to the business model only increases the potential the postal service may become a burden to the american taxpayer, which a avoid able.

12:35 pm
this affiliation is that meaningful or significant but whether time really is playing to our advantage or not. will this group get stronger among the syrian groups with times if we stay out or will it get stronger or weaker if we get involved? how much can we shape the relative role of this group in the opposition. we want to minimize it. that makes the case for the united states getting more asertive earlier. that's the central question. >> shepard: more assertive earlier. we might be past early already two years into this. i wonder if you have thoughts on what it is we might do? how far we might go. >> i think what you need to do is set a clock in motion where you start to get weaponry to those insurgent groups you vouch for. put failsafe measures on the weapons so they can't be used a long period of time.

you don't want to give your best antiaircraft weapons on the fear others could get a few. then i think it's time to actually start a consult tate active process over an air strike option. if we don't set a clear marker we'll do that if necessary, this can drag on because assad and the russians and others can keep telling themself time could be their friend rather than their enemy. i don't think we want them to b. >> shepard: where is the arab league on this? >> the arab league is pretty strongly in favor of the insurgents. though you get into sectarian issues. the arab league is suny, the insurgents is suny. assad is a nonsuny, shia

derivative. that's the logic why the arab states don't like assad. but assad is killing tens of thousands of fellow arabs. that's a compelling argument for a greater number of them. they're already giving more arms than we are, the arab league states, and they'll be prepared to talk about an air campaign if we began that conversation soon. >> shepard: it feels like something's got to give. michael, thank you. right now, a court is hearing -- a court hearing is underway for the reporter who really could face jail time if she doesn't reveal sources in the story she broke on the colorado movie massacre case. jana winter reported on a notebook containing violent drawings and details of a murder plot.

12:44 pm
felt it was too much like a therapy session. anthony weiner told the report he thought twitter was a medium that gave him access to a need he had for attention 24/7. he said i wasn't thinking, is this risky behavior? is it smart? it was another way to feed the notion i want to be liked and admired and he went on, i knew when i did it almost from the moment i did it that there was no good way for it to end when i sent that fateful tweet on june 16. some 21 days after sending the fateful tweet, mr. weiner announced his resignation as hecklers shouted out things like good by perv.
