gun buyers for the first time in years. prince george's county put a more tore yum in place after newtown. that changed with new state gun laws. derrick ward is live in upper marlboro right now and, derrick, there are some new restrictions in place, i understand. >> reporter: well, indeed they are. it's been since 2013 that there's been a gun show here at prince george's county show place arena. today the moratorium that was put in place was lifted because there was no legal standing to keep it in place, but some restrictions are in place, put in place by the maryland national capital park and planning commission. this is their property. one of those restrictions you see on the sign here, no ammunition. it is indeed prohibited. something else that you will see in here are trigger locks on all of the guns, all of the weapons for sale and they won't allow any dry firing as well. folks have already started to line up at the doors. this is one of the most well-attended gun shows they do in the area because it captures
9:05 am
people from all over the region. one of the people coming here thinks the restrictions are a bit much. >> if it's a gun show, you should be able to get ammunition. you're buying a gun for home protection or whatever, and you should be able to get ammunition for that gun or rifle. >> got to have ammunition. i don't see a problem with that. if they don't want to have it, don't have it. i think there may be too many restrictions they're putting on people. >> reporter: we talked to the organizers of this and they're not happy about the restrictions either but they wanted to do it to show it could be done safely. there's never been an incident at a gun show. there are some local politicians, the chair of the city council.
9:06 am
they think this is an aro appropriate venue. for now the gun show is in place. something else you will see here, the presence of maryland park police. the organizers were charged an addition al $5,000 for use of this venue to pay for that police coverage. it starts at about 9:00. we are live. back to you. developing this morning a d.c. nightclub in northeast has been shut down while police investigate a homicide there. d.c. police chief cathy lanier has ordered the owner of laila lounge to close its doors for 96 hours. jones was stabbed after a fight outside the club. jones later died at the hospital. chief lanier says security guards broke up the fight twice but didn't tell police even though two d.c. officers were there working and approved overtime shifts. the death toll in the doctors without borders has
9:07 am
risen. it was hit earlier had month. president barack obama apologized for the incident. the commander of u.s. and nato forces say it was a mistake. investigations are under way. taking a look at virginia politic, it should be a simple day. less than half of the contests will have more than one candidate in the state senate 22 out of 40 races have more than one candidate. only six are expected to be close. >> a pop culture reference about republicans is one you may not expect. take a listen. >> it does make you wonder why the republican politicians are so down on america. have you noticed that? i mean, they are gloomy. they're like grumpy cats.
9:08 am
>> well, as you can hear, the president got some laughs for that grumpy cat impersonation. he spoke at the democratic women's leadership forum yesterday. there the president said he would support whoever the democratic nominee for president is in 2016. >> grumpy cat is good. 9:08 on this saturday morning. the one piece of food keeping the doctor away, the dentist away and un

happening today, superheroes take freedom plaza and for a really great cause. >> that's right. superheroes don't fly. they walk to end hiv. that's the theme for this year's big event, the 5k set to get rolling in a few minutes, angie. and joining us one of the event organizers.
9:11 am
good morning. so glad to have you join us. and you look great. good morning. >> you're one of the event organizers. talk about the turnout and what you're hoping for. >> we're hoping to have several thousand people here, to make $850,000. we're over half a million so r far. we're here to just say that anybody can be a hero in the fight against hiv. get tested. know your status and people who have hiv if they're in care they can manage this and live a full life. they don't have to worry about infecting their partners anymore. we have great technology in the treatment of this disease and it's time to celebrate because we have lots of good news in d.c. it's also time to keep the fight on so support us. i want to talk to you about women and how the fastest growing rates of infection are among african-american women,
9:12 am
your organization sister love has a big part in this. >> it's not over because it's not just the virus we're fighting but a lot of social conditions that allow the virus itself to continue to spread or to continue to threaten people's lives especially for women. so we're not just looking at hiv in its isolation. we're looking at violence against women and its role in increasing the epidemic among women. we're looking at the fact there's still not enough information and education even about the new science especially for women who want to prevent hiv. so it's incredibly important that we're just close to the edge of ending this epidemic but the edge is still just far enough away that we need hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people to continue to get tested, know their status and to protect themselves and
9:13 am
the ones they love. >> and talk about this in your schools, churches, talk about it. >> make it a normal, regular part of conversation just like any other health issue that we're all talking about and concerned about. >> and, justin, we wanted to ask you about your story because you're an openly gay man living with hiv, right, and you were talking about there are ways to treat this illness and there are new advances that we have. talk about that. >> yeah, that's correct. so i've been living with hiv 23 years. i'm a good example if you stay engaged with your medical care, if you stay on treatment, the treatments have evolved through the years so it's tremendously easier today than it was back then. but i go to my doctor. i take my meds and by doing that i prevent myself from infecting any partners. and partners that i have that might be hiv negative can take a pill to prevent hiv themselves. so we can now live a full, normal life and you just have to stay engaged, know your treatment, know your status. >> thank you so much.
9:14 am
we know today is going to be a huge success. you're wearing your capes now but you truly wear them every day and we commend you for that. thank you. >> thank you so much, angie. well, coming up 9:14 a local military family finds common ground through running. meet the couple that will be among the thousands participating in the marine corps marathon and why they say it's helped them stay together. and tom has a final look at your weekend forecast including some big changes from today and tomorrow. stay with us.
