welcome to "cbs this morning." ben carson is lighting up the gun control debate with controversial comments on mass shootings. the gop presidential candidate says he would sacrifice his life if he were face-to-face with a gunman. he said he would rather see a body with bullet holes than gun control. >> carson claimed he would want his child's kindergarten teacher to be armed. his reaction to last week's shooting at an oregon college sets him apart from his republican rivals. julianna goldman has more. >> reporter: less than a week after the shooting, presidential candidates have been addressing gun control and mental health issues. but ben carson's latest comments defending the right to bear arms may be the most controversial. >> i would ask everybody to attack the gunman. because he can only shoot one of us at a time. that way we won't all be dead.
>> the accusation is that you're tone deaf and seem callous. >> no, i'm laughing at them. >> who? >> the question asking that question. of course, you know, if everybody attacks that gunman, he's not going to be able to kill everybody. but if you sit there and let him shoot you one by one, you're all going to be dead. when asked if he was judging the victims, carson said he was looking at the big picture. >> i'm not judging them at all. but these incidents continue to occur. i doubt that this will be the last one. >> reporter: he also appeared on abc's "the view" where he reiterated kindergarten teachers should be armed with guns in the classroom. >> you're obviously not going to have weapons sitting on the teacher's desk. >> where would it be? >> secured where the teacher could get to it. >> how fast could the students get to the locked draw to get the gun?
>> i want that teacher trained in diversiona arary tactics and whatever needs to be done. >> reporter: carson stated that even his experience as a doctor removing bullets from victims has reinforced his belief in the second amendment. he wrote, there is no doubt that senseless violence is breathtaking, but i never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away. other republican candidates staunchly oppose stricter gun laws. >> we don't have a gun problem. we have a problem with sin and evil. this is an evil thing, when people kill another person. and it happens way too often. >> stuff happens. there's always a crisis. and the impulse is always to do something. >> reporter: in iowa, democratic candidate hillary clinton mocked jeb bush's remark. >> this is not stuff happens. we let it happen. and we have to act. >> reporter: president obama is going to oregon to console
victims' families later this week. some protests are expected. and carson was asked if he would do the same as the president. gayle, he responded, probably not, and suggested it would be politicizing the tragedy. >> julianna, thank you. dr. ben carson will join us in studio 57 in our next hour. we'll ask him how he's responding to the uproar over those remarks on the mass shootings. that's ahead. a new poll contains positive news for ben carson in three swing states. numbers from quinnipiac university show he's in strong second place behind front return donald trump in pennsylvania, florida, and ohio, among republican voters. democrat hillary clinton is maintaining her lead in those same states among democratic voters. in national polls she has lost ground to bernie sanders. on the "late show" last night, president clinton explained the surge to stephen colbert. >> a lot of people all over the world are hacked off that they think the system is rigged against them and the rich get
all the gains. >>. this morning, a new report says hillary clinton hired a data system in 2013 that may have automatically kept copies of clinton's deleted e-mails in cloud storage. silence the associated press reports authorities working with the fbi stopped another attempt by russian-linked smugglers to sell radioactive material to terror groups. it's the fourth try in eastern europe in five years to sell materials needed for a dirty bomb. the latest case was in february when someone tried to sell it to a buyer allegedly from isis. our margaret brennan reports president obama and vice president biden will talk with secretary of state john kerry about which steps the u.s. will take next. we're hearing this morning that russia carried out another wave of air strikes in syria. syrian activists say areas near
the russian heartland were struck. holly williams has more from istanbul. >> reporter: good morning. syrian regime troops launched a ground assault today backed by intense russian air strikes and targeting syrian opposition forces. russian air strikes have pounded syria for a week. russia joined the syrian conflict, saying it would target isis. but many of the locations moscow said it's hit are not in areas controlled by isis militants. with war planes and helicopter gun ships, the u.s. says what moscow is really doing is propping up the syrian regime by attacking its opponents, including some groups linked to al qaeda, but also moderate rebels who are supported by america. a syrian monitoring group says russian air strikes are killing dozens of civilians.
but as if to refute that claim, russia released this drone video which it says shows the russian military carefully tracking but not targeting isis vehicles as they park beside a mosque. russian media also broadcast this video with a commander showing what he claimed were two accurate hits on isis ammunition depots. meanwhile, neighboring turkey, which is a nato member and a key u.s. ally, says russian war planes have twice violated its airspace. nato chief jens stoltenberg called on russia to avoid escalating tensions. >> this is exactly what we were afraid of, that incidents, accidents, may create dangerous situations. >> reporter: with russia seeming to reassert itself as a
superpower, its behavior is angering the u.s. and its allies. >> holly williams in istanbul, thank you so much. this morning doctors without borders is demanding an independent investigation into a u.s.-led air strike on a hospital in afghanistan. general campbell on tuesday described the attack as a mistake. >> we would never intentionally target a protected medical facility. >> 22 people died and dozens were hurt in saturday's attack. doctors without borders calls the bombing a war crime. recovery efforts are beginning this morning in parts of the south ravaged by historic flooding. the rain has stopped there but there is extensive damage in south carolina. more dams are on the verge of collapsing. david begnaud is in columbia where more evacuations may be required. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we've just confirmed with officials here in the come colu
south carolina area. beaver dam is reportedly stable after tons of rock were dumped there. about 72 hours ago, the arcadia lakes dam here collapsed. the bridge collapsed and the dam failed. the water went rushing downriver. it was dangerous, then turned deadly. video from this drone shows the damage to some of conclusouth carolina's dams, following the unprecedented storm. 11 dams have failed. more are in jeopardy. in richland county, where there was concern that beaver dam would be the latest to fail, people were told tuesday they may need to evaluate. >> we have people on the ground assessing it literally as we go. >> oh, my gosh. >> reporter: we were with angela cole and her partner craig as they entered their home together
for the first time since sunday's flooding. >> oh, my god. this is sick. >> reporter: most everything they have is soaked in mud. >> oh, my god. this is just -- >> reporter: as the water rose in their home, the family climbed to their attic. they called 911, but two hours passed and no help. cole posted a plea on facebook, if anyone has' boat, please help, i have two children, one with special needs, she wrote. did you think that you and your family were going to die? >> oh, yeah. i did. >> reporter: you honestly did? >> honestly. when i saw the water coming up, yes. >> and finally he just banged a hole through the side of the house wall in the attic and we started screaming for help. >> reporter: these three men heard the family's pleas and rushed to their aid. >> i think they thought they
were done for. if we wouldn't have been there 20 more minutes, i don't think they would have had much time left. >> reporter: this picture shows them clutching one of the family dogs while being rescued from the downpour. i can't imagine how helpless that must have felt as a father. >> you feel like you failed them. >> you didn't. you knocked that hole out. and we're here. and we're alive. and that's all that matters. >> reporter: that is one grateful family, which is safe in a hotel room right now. the good news is the sun is out. no rain is expected. but the water is still rising in some places. and there's a story developing right now. early this morning we're told that a driver went around a set of barricades and the vehicle was washed away. three people were rescued but we're told that two people are missing. and the search for them is ongoing. >> david, thanks.
this morning federal investigators are searching for answers in the sinking of the cargo ship el faro. 33 people were on board. overnight family members and friends of the missing crew members gathered in maine for vigil ills. at least four of the 33 crew members are from the state. the coast guard continues to look for survivors. so far it's covered more than 200 square miles in the bermuda triangle. our mark strassmann is in florida. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. investigators will now look for the ship's voyage data recorder to tell them how el faro was operating when it ran into hurricane joaquin. that device transmits its location for 30 days until its battery runs dead. at this point there is no sign of the signal. six days into the search, the coast guard is becoming increasingly pessimistic about finding survivors. carla newkirk's father, 22-year-old larry davis, is one
of the 33 missing. he has been el faro's lookout but has spent the last 20 years working on the water as a merchant marine. >> that's his second home. >> reporter: last thursday, el faro's crew sent out a distress signal. the ship had lost power and propulsion and the eye of hurricane joaquin was bearing down. were you worried? >> no. i wasn't worried. i've heard the stories of him, you know, being in storms out there on the ocean. but, you know, he's always come home. this is the story that i need for him to tell me now. >> reporter: critics, including some families of the missing crew, have questioned captain michael davidson's decision to continue the ship's route into a storm growing stronger. >> those ships certainly have the fuel range cable pable of g around to minimize weather issues. >> you don't go through a hurricane like that and survive.
>> reporter: but carla kinclinin -- clings to hope. >> i know that if god would give a miracle to my family and my father, he's still out there. >> reporter: the u.s. coast guard could decide as soon as today whether to stop the search for survivors. they've scheduled a meeting with families to tell them their thinking. >> mark, thanks. new york's attorney general is looking into whether employees at draftkings and fanduel have an unfair advantag. fanduel says its companies band employees from playing daily fantasy games for money and set up an independent review of its practices. cbs news's legal expert, rikki klieman, is here.
good morning. >> good morning. >> you say this is a smart move by the attorney general? >> really smart. and he got there first. you're hearing noise from representatives and senators all the way up to harry reid that they want to investigate, and the fcc. eric schneiderman is smart. what happened in fantasy football is this. originally it was a year-long game. that didn't seem so harmful. it was exempt from the 2006 unlawful internet gambling enforcement contact, because it was looked at as skill, not as simply chance. but now, what's happened in fantasy football is you can make a lot of money, because it's daily, and it's weekly. so if you're an employee on one of these sites, and you bet on the other site, and just happyo happen to have a good weekend, that smacks of i mpropriety.
we don't like the idea that an employee of one of these sites might have inside information that they can use to their advantage on another site. >> why is there no regulation? >> there was regulation simply because it was exempt. so the industry says, okay, we'll regulate ourselves. well, we know what happens when that occurs. so what everyone else is saying now is like, no, no, no, you can't police yourself, we're going to police you. so it's not going to be anymore that someone who appears to have knowledge can be able to bet on the other sites. i mean, what were they thinking? none of these people should have been able to bet. >> what's going to happen now? >> i think that the danger is fines. the danger is ultimately big time regulation. and if it goes further, the danger could really be indictments. >> rikki klieman, thank you very much. ahead, how sin city is
trying to reinvent itself to attract a new generation of gamblers. >> reporter: i'm ben tracy in las vegas where some people are betting the future of gambling looks a whole lot more like a video game. we'll show you the technology they're hoping will lure,, announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by voya. changing the way you think of retirement.

we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.

wall that is threatening the water supply, just 375,000 people here in columbia. despite the lingering dangers, people are slowly, slowly starting to go back to their homes at least to look at what the damage is and it is expensive, we are told. more than 250 roads and bridges remain closed statewide which is making it tough for people to even get back home. all right, here's the deal for today, they're expecting sunshine, but the threat for the remainder of the week will be the potential for dam failure. we have just confirmed that earlier this morning near conjugee road, a truck was washed away and three people rescued and we have confirmed two people are missing. >> oh, my goodness. a reminder not to go around those barricades. they are there for a reason. david, thank you so much for your reporting all this week. this morning one of the leading republican presidential candidates dr. ben carson is facing controversy over comments he made about the oregon school

people, and so the idea is overwhelm him so that not everybody gets killed. >> do you know who chris mintz is? >> no. >> chris mintz is an army veteran and he was shot seven times. he did actually rush the shooter and he's being hailed as a hero and he saved people's lives so someone in that instance did actually act heroically. >> therein lies what i'm saying. that's exactly what should be done and the likelihood of him being able to kill many people diminishes. >> you are being accused of being sensitive to the victims people are saying you don't know what to do if god forbid you are in that situation. how do you respond to that? >> we live in a culture now where people think we need to set up battle lines and get on this side of it or that side of it rather than collectively decide how to solve the problem. it's sort of an immature attitude, but it seems took
rampant in america today. >> the question is what do we do about this? the president says it has become routine. >> right. >> how does a nation come to grips with this fact that it's a combination of who's doing it, access to weapons and the opportunity? >> well, in medicine we have a tendency to make decisions based on evidence not on ideology. so let's say this were a disease, what we would be saying is let's take each one of these shooters and let's go back and let's study their lives, and let's see if we can see some commonalities here. are there some early warning signals for people like this so that we can begin to identify them and intervene before the tragedy occurs, not only for those people who were shot, but for the shooter themselves. >> how would you do that, number one, and secondly, once you begin to see a pattern, how do
you make sure that that pattern will help you lead to the next potential assailant? >> i think we have to, for instance, empower the psychiatrists, the psychologists. in a number of these cases these people have been working with mental health professionals, but nothing was done about it, and we have to be able to move to the next step not just recognizing that they're mentally ill, but being able to take the appropriate interventional steps. >> should there be new laws to make it harder for people who have mental illness to perfect guns. >> for people who have been declared dangerous individuals by a mental health professional, absolutely we should be looking for a mechanism to keep dangerous weapons out of their hands. now we need to study all of the possibilities and we cannot do anything that compromises the second amendment, but as long as we keep in mind we don't want to compromise the second amend am, but we also want to keep
dangerous weapons out of the hands of dangerous people. that makes imminent sense. >> they were talking about muskets and ak-47s and the high-powered rifles we have today. you write that the ban on military-style assault weapons was a good and you've now written that you've changed your mind. what changed your mind? >> you will also see that i talked about the fact that they recognize that things would change, that we would become a more modern society and we would face different principles and different situations, but we have to recognize that it was the principles that were important. so what were the principles of the second amendment and those principles were we wanted to make sure that the people had the ability to assist the military in case of an invasion and that the people also had the ability to protect themselves from overly aggressive, federal government, that was a very important part of the reason for
it. now, obviously, if we say well, we're talking about muskets so, yeah, you could have a musket, but as we advance in terms of our weaponry, you can't have any of those things. that violates the principle. >> michael bloomberg is also very close to the university where you work, johns hopkins. proud graduate. he has become a very, very strong advocate for gun control. what is it that he doesn't understand that you understand? >> well, i think we ought to get him to answer that question. >> let me get with you first and then i'll -- >> what i understand quite vividl is what daniel webster said. daniel webster said america will never suffer under tyranny because the people are armed. that's what i understand. so i don't want to see tyranny occur here. you know -- adams also said that there may come a time when we do
not have good people at the helm of our country. we can't always assume that it's going to be that case. >> you've criticized president obama who is going to oregon on friday to meet with some of the victims' families. is there -- you said it's becoming a political issue. can you change this conversation without politicizing it? >> first of all, let's set the record straight. what i was asked if i were president, would i go and i said no, not in it was going to open wounds and inflict, you know, a lot of controversy, i would not. i said i would have probably lots of other things on my other schedule that i could do. the other thing -- this is important, i don't think i would have the pushback if i were president because i wouldn't be picking and choosing which groups i sympathize with. i mean, i would have talked to kate steinle's family who was killed by an illegal alien.
>> yes. >> and you have to be compassionate to everybody. you don't pick and choose who you'll be compassionate to. >> so if in fact, you as president, could play a role and express the nation's grief in going to oregon you would be pleased to do that and you would object to a president whose effort is to console the grief of a nation and the families who have been suffering. >> i wouldn't object to such an objection. >> dr. ben carson. >> his book "a more perfect union" is on sale right now. getting 50% more at the grocery store may be no bargain at all. co

of 15 your peers are thinking what are you wearing for homecoming? and we were like what are we wearing for our red carpet one day? >> your vocal coach put you together. you live where and you where? >> i'm from sugar land, texas. >> oklahoma? >> vocal coach put you together? >> it's kind of weird. it was a vocal coach but he was host ago showcase where students could go and do a cover and an original song, whatever you wanted to do. so we both happened to be there on the same night and really hit it off. kind of as friends after, you know, the performances. and then started talking music and we were both, like, total music nerds. >> you hit it off. >> yeah. >> you've been together five years but just taken off the last year. i want to talk about that last year. because now here you are performing at the grand ole opry. the people that you looked at as little girls know now your name. what is that like? >> you mentioned the grand ole
opry and so foiunny. the first time we went there was to see steven skill and we love and hope to collaborate with him some day and we actually met him last night. he knows our name and so cool to be associate even with our own legends. >> yes. >> i think is there a really special moment that happened last week. we were in bakersfield, california. we do a meet and greet where fans come through and we get to meet maybe 40 of them before the show. there was this girl maybe about 11 or 12 in tears. >> you're young too! i love it. she was young. >> a baby. >> okay. e i felt so overjoyed in high life and to think she was overjoyed to meet us, i was so humbled and just honored that we were bringing so much joy to
