around their needs. the entire space is sensory friendly. the seeding units were shaped by caught air balloons and they encouraged mobility. -- hot air balloons and they encouraged mobility. when we go through the clouds, but kids would deal wind -- feel wind from the fans and they would feel -- feel the missed. -- mist. we work through multiple senses. recently a child had a nap bert -- an outburst during a show and people in the audience asked the mother to leave. are you trying to talk to more families on the spectrum? >> there are some family- friendly productions at this point.
we wanted to do something original for kids on the spectrum which is something more theater should look at. i am thrilled to say there are 25 theaters from around the united states who are coming to lincoln center to look at our work. we cannot meet the needs for all the kids on the spectrum, but for more to do this, i think we could change the landscape of the theater.>> reporter: i know that the lion king recently did one of these performances.>> we did expand to november 1 and there is a wait list. >> reporter: that goes to show how high the demand is. thank you for doing this incredible work and telling us about it. we appreciate it. for more information, you can

allows people to pursue fulfilling lives. on thursday morning, the college's faculty and students suffered a vicious attack from a 20 six-year-old gunmen, chris harper mercer. mr. mercer entered the college and murdered at least nine people and wounded nine more. mercer was then killed according to some rip -- and according to some reports, bursar was -- mercer was driven by infamy. it opens the questions surrounding gun control and mental health. some say the gun -- the gun lobby would be better served by allowing students and faculty to carry guns on campus. gun control activists say the tougher laws are needed to prevent to ranged individuals from accessing guns.
six guns on him and he wrote that he had been waiting to do this for years. do we need tougher gun laws.>> one of the things that motivates these gunmen is what you are doing. you put their name out on the waves. this is a nobody who wants to go out in a blaze of glory and infamy. they want to be like the guys at columbine and the guy in newtown that shot up -- in the guy that shot up the church -- church. they want their names to be known as well as john dillinger. i understand why you get it, but we make a mistake if we think this is not a magnet for the next nobody sitting out there who wants to go out like that.>> america does not have
the monopoly on nobodies, but america is the only country that has mass killing on a regular basis. we can learn from australia in the 1990s after they had a mass killing. they titans down on their gun laws and they haven't had anything like that in the 20 years since. gun laws need to be tighter in this country. it is too easy for people to purchase guns and pass them along for crimes. to say that we cannot do anything that the nra is too strong and congress cannot act is to give congress a pass on issues that are critical to the country. we are living in the midst of a revolution on the right and the left with discussed with lawmakers. at some point there will be a tipping point and the american people will have had enough. the nra is the national rifle association.
my question is, is the nra and allied or an enemy -- an ally or enemy?>> they are an ally. one of the things we have to address is that the core issue is people being shot every day on the ship -- on the street. chicago is a microcosm of this. chicago where otis mcdonald who is 81 petition to be able to have a handgun in his house. >> where are you going with this? >> i looked on the chicago city website and in mr. mcdonald's neighborhood, in the last month, there have been three homicides, 15 burglaries and 10 robberies. as much as we can do things like challenging purchases and
hitting gangs when they do these transactions, at the same time i think we we need to have the possession -- position where law-abiding homeowners can have these weapons. there is a psychological element of safety they have from that.>> we need to find a way to live with guns. why don't we talk about -- why are we talking about chicago and not new york. new york is not surrounded right states where there are no controls like chicago is. they had indiana and wisconsin. you can go outside in chicago banning sales in chicago does not do any good. in new york, it is difficult to buy a gun. you can buy it, but you have to be registered and interviewed, etc. there is a procedure to try to eliminate people with the
the nra supported back in the 1990s, universal background checks. now, they think politically they can get away without supporting.>> [ indiscernible - multiple speakers ].>> one thing we can agree on with the approach that the gun safety. keep the hand -- keep the guns out of the wrong people. that is the dangerously mentally ill felons.>> the mentally ill. verify a bleak mentally ill -- verifiably mental bleak -- mentally -- verifiably mentally ill cannot buy guns. >> they can buy them on the internet.>> [ indiscernible - multiple speakers ].>> there is disrespect and disregard. it is far deeper in chicago
than in indiana. >> we are getting guns into the people of hands that shouldn't -- the hands of people that should not have them. >> you cannot get background checks through congress.>> 5% of gun dealers will hide 95% of the guns used in crime. the acf needs to take the licenses away from these people.>> there are 10 cities with the highest murder rates in america. sides. partisan thing. >> new york does not have a
into dc from virginia. they are right over the bridge.>> [ indiscernible - multiple speakers ].>> i'm going to go out and get my own revolver.>> the president is such a good guy and this has gone right to the heart because he cannot get control of guns. this week he was on the air repeatedly and his message was, as i said a few months ago and a few months before that, when i see these shootings, our thoughts and prayers are not enough. it does not catcher -- capture the grief and anger that we feel. next week, or a couple of months from now, -- when americans are killed in mine disasters, we make the minds
-- mines safer.>> he got the president of the united states to come out to the podium at the white house to speak and argue. it has you talking about it and the whole country. some nut sitting out there watching all of this stuff who says, i want to end it all and that is the way to go. >> are you suggesting a media blackout? i don't want to make celebrities out of these people, but you cannot ignore the fact.>> [ indiscernible - multiple speakers ].>> we have had about a dozen massacres since obama's election alone. there is no legislative reaction at all.>> when we come
issue >> moderator: issue 2, the assembly of nations.>> united nations is prepared to work with any nation, including russia and iran to resolve the conflict. we must recognize that there cannot be after so much carnage, a return to the prewar status quote.>> we think it is an enormous mistake not to
forces while fighting terrorism >> attending the annual united nations assembly in new york, president. obama and president. putin of russia called for greater cooperation against terrorism and for a peace deal to end the syria for your civil war -- four year civil war. they strongly disagreed on one president. obama wants him gone and president putin wants him to stay. on wednesday, russia began its own airstrikes against the regime. russia requested that the u.s. led coalition that is bombing the islamic state terrorist group suspend its air operations.
moderator: who is right, obama or putin. -- putin? >> i had a piece out yesterday. i think that they will try to smash the rebels and seed that part of the country. that will metastasize the problem and they will continue. it is really significant. >> obama made a transition saying that bashar al-assad would be at threat in any regime.>> i think obama's strategy to stay out of the quagmire.
they are standing by . they want to come to the table and preserve a segment of syria. they are coming to the table with tickets. obama is fighting isis which aided saddam. then they are aiding the rebels. americans don't know what they are doing, there -- the russians do.>> just stand back and let them do it. we don't know what they are doing with syria. suited is going to make the sacrifices -- putin is going to make the sacrifices. i think along with other terrorist groups.>> i think he doesn't care about it. it forces the sunnis to the
other side. i would say they have to compromise. this is why i am worried they are not more interested in a bigger project.>> [ indiscernible - multiple speakers ].>> i just want to say one thing. the russians are fighting in syria and they will go back. putin does not want syria exported back to russia.>> you like the program, don't you? do you like being here? how dangerous is the situation? the great risk is that there is a u.s./russia military encounter. the uss army units on the ground fighting against u.s. -- against isis. there could be a crisis. >> we don't have troops on the
ground in syria. the americans and the russians are both talking and the israelis are talking to make sure their aircraft do not involved with one another. >> that is one good tank. at least the militaries are talking to each other.>> moderator: the etiology of battle. this was said on monday, and aggressive foreign interference has resulted in a brazen destruction of national institutions and the lifestyle itself. instead of the triumph of democracy and progress, we have violence, poverty and social disaster. nobody cares a bit about human rights, including the right to life. i cannot help asking those who have helped to cause the situation, do you realize now what you have done? whose words are these?>> that
he was saying that it has created disasters in afghanistan, libya and erect. he has a point. >> he is blaming the u.s. for all the problems in the world. i don't think that is liberal democracy.>> he loves to prance around and present himself as holier than thou on the world stage. this is a case of him reaching out to his own people. > so that is putin's point?>> his point is that we are responsible for the disaster in the middle east because of the interventions.>> i think erect was a grave error. yes. but we should pay more
i am not defending all of the stars in place -- >> moderator: more on the ideological battle. who said this, the strongmen today become a spark of fresno -- of revolution tomorrow. you can jail your opponents, but you cannot imprison ideas. you can control access to information, but you cannot turn a light into truth.>> that was president. obama .>> you see the tension between worldviews. president putin put his into force.>> i think most americans do not want to be there, but it is current policy. >> i think most people believe
and that isis this -- win and that isis does not have a sustainable ideology.>> i think putin is trying to recover from the humiliation of the cold war and the end of the soviet union.>> to be isis, you need troops on the ground and nobody is willing to provide them.>> hooton isn't either. -- putin isn't either.>> moderator: let's try trump.>> i did the plan with some of the leading scholars in this country. they loved it and they say, why hasn't this been done before? this is my wheelhouse and what i do well. the economy is what i do well.>> moderator: donald trump has announced his tax plan for the u.s. here is what it entails.
replaced with 4 new rates. individuals earning less than $25,000 per year would pay no federal income taxes. mr. trump says these individuals within the new form to the irs that reads, i went -- win. individual earning between $25,000 and $50,000 will pay a 10% federal rate and zero capital gains taxes. individuals earning between 50,000 individuals earning between $50,001 and $150,000 would pay a 20% federal rate and a 15% capital gains rate. individuals earning over $150,001 will pay a 25% federal
cooperation will be given a one time 10% tax break on earnings repatriated to the united states. loopholes will be closed and corporate taxes will be limited to a flat 15%. mr. trump would eliminate the alternative minimum tax and close deductions for high earners. deductions for mortgage interest and charitable giving will remain for all taxpayers. is this a sound plan, or can you trumpet? >> i think i can trumpet. the problem is -- trump it. the estimate is that it would take $10 million away from the federal budget. as much as i would like to see reform, there is no way you can do that and have a strong military. i think you get rid of the
the tax code is absurd.>> he gets rid of one and it doesn't nearly make up for the kerry way that -- the carry away that he is giving to the top bracket the drops 14 points. he abolishes the tax for the lower income people. they are the 47%, remember they don't pay income tax. that is a total shell game. this is fraud. >> this is middle class economics on and that amine. -- on amphetamine. i think there's too much of a hole in the treasury. >> is this the downside?>> it is the downside indeed. the tea party is worried about
the deficit and this would raise it $1 trillion with a t.>> one more repeal is the state tax.>> is best idea is not included which is tariffs for goods coming into the country to produce revenue for small businesses across america.>> in 1978 i believe that's what was the other fellow from wisconsin in 1980? it was a reagan tax plan. it was credited for the boom in the 1980s.>> which one would be the higher?>> this one won't get to the starting gate.>> we will live with the unknown for
