7:05 am
now calling for action. his tenth visit to a community after a mass shooting pointing out the children of newtown would now be finishing the fifth grade. abc's jonathan karl has the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, david. national mourning over the orlando massacre is giving way to political finger-pointing over who or what is to blame. >> one year, the escalator, one year, this is the one-year anniversary. hopefully we'll make it a worthwhile year. >> reporter: on the one-year anniversary of his campaign donald trump attacked president obama for calling for gun control after he paid his respects to victims in orlando. >> i held and hugged grieving family members and parents and they asked why does this keep happening? and they pleaded that we do more to stop the carnage. >> it's a tough situation. but he's largely to a large extent he's blaming guns and --
7:06 am
[ booing ] >> and i'm going to save your second amendment many, folks. >> reporter: but on capitol hill there are signs of possible agreement on one gun issue. >> of course, no one wants terrorists to be able to buy guns. >> reporter: after nearly 15 hours of outrage on the senate floor wednesday, the senate plans to vote next monday on several gun control measures. democrats want to ban anyone on a terrorist watch list from buying a gun. but republicans have instead called for a three-day waiting period to make sure the buyer is not actually a suspected terrorist. but the two sides are still far apart. >> the republican amendments are laughable written by the nra and make this country less cespedes. >> reporter: senator john mccain even said president obama was directly responsible for the orlando attack although later he said he misspoke, was not talking about the president personally but about his policies. >> the president's failure to address the threat of isis has led to attacks on the united
7:07 am
states. >> reporter: meanwhile, back on the campaign trail, trump is feeling new heat as he lags behind hillary clinton in the latest polls and one poll clinton up 6, in another she's up 12 points. and now bernie sanders says he stands poised to join forces with clinton pledging in a livestream address he'll work to take trump down. >> i personally intend to begin my role in that process in a very short period of time. >> reporter: now sanders did not formally drop out of the race, concede or endorse hillary clinton, instead he said he plans to continue fighting to transform the democratic party all the way into the democratic convention and beyond. >> all right, jon karl with us live, jon, thanks. right to our political analyst matt dowd because, matt, as you know you have people on the terror watch list able to buy guns and donald trump signaling he wants to meet with the nra, now democrats and republicans signalling they'll hold a vote next week.
7:08 am
what are the chances there will be a vote and could there be change? >> well, it seems like the greatest opportunity since the '90s to actually do some commonsense regulation. as you know i'm a gun owner and live in texas. most of us want something to happen. donald trump has an opportunity like nixon to china to bring the nra to the table to compromise but maybe he's just going to bring the nra to the table and confuse the situation. it's really up to donald trump how he handles that. >> you know, in the meantime, matt, you saw the polling there in jon karl's piece showing that hillary clinton is pulling ahead of donald trump. a lot of this was after the shootings in orlando and my question to you, was this a test for donald trump in appearing presidential after such a tragedy in this country and if so, how did he do here? >> well, this has been a test and there's been a series of tests since he clinched the gop nomination and hasn't done well. the biggest problem for donald trump is he is in a basketball game where it's one-on-five against the president, against hillary, against joe biden and that's the situation even steph curry couldn't win a game when
7:09 am
it's one-on-five. >> all right. steph curry has a game seven and we have to go all the way to november on the electric. matt dowd with us. matt, have a great weekend. now to new questions about whether politics are behind a terrible tragedy overseas. a rising political star killed on the streets of england, the world mourning the loss of 41-year-old jo cox, a mother of two, abc's terry moran has the very latest outside of parliament. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, amy and this morning britain is in shock, hearts are breaking here at the houses of parliament right across the country from a horrifying crime that's not supposed to happen here. a bright, young politician gunned down in the street. she was just 41 years old, a mother of two young children. >> listen to me, there was once a banana and it was a cheeky -- >> reporter: her life cut short. police and emergency vehicles swarming the scene of the attack in a quiet yorkshire town. eyewithins describe the horror

[ sirens ] >> reporter: in the wake of the deadliest terror attack since 9/11, the fbi has pleaded with the public to report any suspicions. >> if you see something, tell us. so we can look at it. >> reporter: but the owner of this florida gun store says nothing happened. when his employees called the
7:12 am
fbi to report a suspicious man five to six weeks ago. they now identify him as omar mateen, who they say wanted to buy bulk ammunition and body armor including plates like this one that can stop armor-piercing bullets. the store's owner robert abel says his employees were immediately suspicious about the man's request and a phone call he made. >> he had a conversation in a foreign language that was more concerning. >> reporter: the store refused to sell mateen anything and called the local fbi office immediately after he left. >> we did contact authorities and let them know we had a suspicious person in here and there was nothing that become of it. >> reporter: the store did not have mateen's name but they did have his image on a grainy surveillance tape which they say the fbi never came to see and has since been recorded over. earlier this week, the fbi director said his agents had done all they could have. >> i don't see anything in
7:13 am
reviewing our work that our agents should have done differently. >> reporter: but mateen was someone who had already been investigated twice by the fbi about possible ties to terrorism. so far this morning, david, no comment from fbi headquarters. >> and, brian, we know authorities remain laser focused on the wife and now cops word possible text messages during the massacre. >> mateen's wife noor seen here on her wedding day with her parents and independent's father have been placed on the no-fly list amid reports that mateen texted his wife during the report. pierre thomas reports that mateen asked his wife have you seen the news? she at any time seem to know where he was. they expressed their love for each other and that's part of the investigation. >> but the no-fly list means they're not going anywhere. >> they're not going anywhere. now to the latest on that deadly alligator attack at a disney resort. the autopsy results now in as abc's parent company announces it is adding new safety messages and signage, gio benitez has the

7:15 am
five alligators we've already taken and compare things like bite marks. there is a good chance we already have the alligator. >> reporter: this photo taken of another child by another jennifer venditti sending chills across the internet. her boy standing in the same spot where little lane was attacked. less than an hour before the accident. >> we're in florida. every body of water needs to be assumed there is an alligator in there and all alligators are dangerous. >> the family releasing a statement saying "words cannot describe the shock and grief our family is experiencing over the loss of our son. we are devastated to all of the local authorities and staff who worked tirelessly these past 24 hours, we express our deepest gratitude." and back out here live at disney world we should tell you that we don't know exactly when those new signs will be in place but those beaches will remain closed. amy. >> all right, gio, parents everywhere will change how they act and interact with those beaches in the state of florida. thank you.

lara, you have the story everyone is talking about, how much sleep did you get. >> i couldn't look away. dramatic game steph curry ejected as king james led the cavaliers to victory trouncing the golden state warriors tying the series 3-3, so now they are headed for the game seven showdown. good news for abc's t.j. holmes who is in cleveland with more. t.j., how about you? any sleep? >> just a little bit but we can't believe what we're seeing right now. for the first time in 50 years a team has come back from 3-1 down to force a game seven in the finals and saw lebron james become the fifth player to put back-to-back 40-point games in the final and steph curry got kicked out of a game. we ain't never seen that before. >> rebound. and a foul on curry and curry is going to hit with a technical. >> reporter: the two-time mvp simply lost it. steph curry was ejected in the fourth quarter of game six of the nba finals after tossing his mouthpiece hitting a fan.
7:17 am

7:18 am
quote was absolutely rigged for money or ratings. now, she did ale po just for that tweet and deleted it and said she was in the heat of the moment. i do need to address, do not worry there is no chance they are going to suspend steph curry for that toss of that mouthpiece. there is precedent for this and probably get a fine but the nba is not crazy enough to suspend steph curry for game seven against lebron james. >> that would not have gone over well. >> nba according to t.j. holmes. and we like it. >> thanks, t.j. >> he's got the best gig in the whole -- we last saw him four weeks ago when this all started. >> all right. >> you can see by the way game seven of the nba finals, i can stay up, sunday night, oh, no, it's sunday night on abc. yikes. now to ginger. we've got severe weather to talk about the in the east and storms moving. >> a lot of folks that couldn't watch because their power went out.mid atlantic without power s morning, you can see why damaging winds, more than 250

four other cities in the country that are looking at similar proposals and two other states, alabama and illinois looking at similar proposals, the fact that philadelphia after all of these years was able to do this, they expect to raise $400 million in tax revenue over five years, this could really be a game changer for the full industry and what's really interesting here is how the mayor of philadelphia attacked the issue. they came at in this time with a new strategy saying, we just want to raise money. we want to raise more money for the city. they didn't look at it as much as a health risk and that's part of the reason that they were able to pass it but, of course, the mayor says we still want ourty to be healthy and an added benefit here. >> you know, a lot of people don't like these nanny state laws, nanny state taxes so what are people saying? what's been the public reaction to this. >> very strong feelings on both sides of this, amy. of course, the beverage industry is outraged. they don't want to pay more taxes. they don't want their consumers to face more taxes, they have
7:43 am
been facing really depressed sales over the last couple of years. you've seen those soda sales drop to 30-year lows in the last couple of years here, so that's a big issue and there are some consumers who are going to say, hey, we don't want the price of our drinks to go up. on the flip side, cities are benefiting. they see more of that tax revenue, those services come out, a lot of people benefit from that too. >> we'll see if other cities and states follow. thanks, rebecca. now to the nba finals where lebron and the cavs are on the verge of making history. forcing game seven with the warriors after trailing 3-1. steph curry melting down ejected in the final quarter and jalen rose former mlb finalist and current espn analyst joins us now live. all right, so jalen, talk about steph curry. he fouled out then freaked out and threw his mouthpiece into the stands. tnl homes says no way is he going to be suspended for game etch seven. what say you? >> he will not be suspended for game seven.
7:44 am
being in the arena, i initially thought that not only he threw his mouthpiece but he threw it in the direction of the official. if that had happened, yes, he would be suspended. he did unfortunately hit a fan but that will not lead to a suspension. there will be a hefty fine, probably $25,000 but steph curry will be in uniform for the two best words in sports this sunday on abc. >> game seven. >> game seven. >> wait, jalen, so it depends on who he was throwing it at like that determines whether or not he's suspended? >> well, if you are throwing it at an official it's viewed a lot different. of course, you would have rather him keep it in his mouth first and foremouth. second if you get upset maybe throw it at the ground but if you do throw it at a fan, unfortunately, if you are a cavs fan that will not lead to suspension, it's going to be a great game. great theater for the nba finals. >> if you're a warriors fan, you just save it.
7:45 am
here's a question for you, steph curry not going to be suspended but will his wife ayesha who sent that tweet out last night, she said the game is rigged for money and ratings and since deleted the tweet but it made a lot of headlines. >> who isn't emotional for their mate? okay. this is high intensity, it's the nba finals and i will say this, she's staying true to character. it's not like she's been the mate that has not been tweeting, that has not been on television, that has not been outspoken about everything that happens with the golden state warriors so i'm not surprised she got upset that steph fouled out for the first time this season, got ee jeged for the first time ever. she was in the building. it was an emotional time. she deleted the tweet. she will not be suspended. she will not be fined and more importantly she will not be playing this sunday. >> okay. >> that's true. >> good to know. >> speaking of playing let's talk about lebron james. what do you think the chances
7:46 am
are he makes history? >> there's a very good chance. how about this? lebron james is the first player in the nba finals to lead either team in these statistical categories, points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals. he's been dominant. regardless of which team wins, he's going to be finals mvp in my opinion but i tell you what, for this team to be able to force a game seven, it almost seems like the momentum is headed in the cleveland cavaliers way. >> there goes that mouthguard. if he's watching this morning. >> we'll all be watching sunday night. rebecca, jalen and joplin, thanks for being with us. >> thanks a lot. >> i mentioned we can all see game seven of the nba finals sunday night at 8 p.m. eastern right here on abc. >> you can stay up on sunday night. >> i think i can. >> we'll be here monday morning and carry you through. what made prince george face palm. what people are doing with queen elizabeth's outfit and the big concert in the park.
