8:05 am
actually 2,043 times. it doesn't make any sense and it doesn't make people safer. i think it makes it a much more dangerous situation. it's come to our attention and it's time to do something about it. yeah, there was an attempt to do something about it and the nra beat that back and it's time for, you know, right thinking people to stand up' and say if somebody has done something has them on the terrorism watch list perhaps we should, you know, temporarily delay them from buying a gun or permanently ban them from buying a gun in a state like connecticut. that is what we want to do. >> people make a couple of points. one people who committed who committed the acts in san bernardino did not appear on any no-fly list. number one. number two, they ask what list will you use? number three, they ask suppose this is true in connecticut, will they not go go to another state and what is necessary is federal legislation. >> of course, federal legislation is necessary. there should be no gun sales that are not subject to a
8:06 am
background check. over whelmlying americans agree with this and members of the nra agree there should be background checkship when the intercan stop the congress of the united states from passing common sense legislation, we are in trouble as a democracy. overwhelmingly, people want to see some level of background checks on a universal basis. someone should not be able to buy a gun over the internet without a background check. someone should not be able to go into a gun show and buy a gun without a background check. it doesn't make any sense. let's make america safer. you know, you just led with a statistic about 79% of americans are fearful that there will be a terrorism attack. but 30,000 people in america will die from gun violence and some of that will be with guns that would not be in the hands they are in if they had been universal background checks. >> in your statement, governor
8:07 am
you said the public shouldn't be fooled into thinking we are powerless and all we need to do is make common sense. if other states reached out to you and said governor we are with you and have you reached out to other states? >> other states have reached out to our office. we are sharing our information. we are discussing this with federal authorities. i think we are going to have an agreement to make these lists available for background check purposes only. that is all we are asking. when we do a background check in connecticut, we should be able to deny someone the ability to purchase a gun, subject to an appeal, obviously. if they are on that list. it's just common sense. what american doesn't think that that is the right thing to do? >> what about the concern that some people say the list is flawed? >> well, the argument there is things aren't perfect, therefore, we should do nothing. what i'm -- i want to be very clear. we deny people the right to buy a gun in connecticut. it's subject to appeal.
8:08 am
many of those appeals are granted because there was a mistake in the paper work or some other thing had happened. i'm not saying that we unilaterally prevent someone from purchasing a gun but we should be able to stop it if they are on that list. if we are not letting them on a plane, why are we selling them a gun? >> what is the specific list you will be using in connecticut from the federal government? >> well, there is a terrorism watch list and i think that that is, a, number one. there was a study that showed that people on that list were able to purchase guns 2,043 times in a ten-year period in the united states. let me just remind you that 400,000 people have died by gun violence in america since 9/11. 3,800 americans have died worldwide as a result of terrorism. what i'm saying is let's make sure that we make our country, our state as safe as possible.
8:09 am
when you know there is a threat when you know is there a threat we should be able to take action and, by the way, this is a much better -- i'm sorry. >> i was going to ask, will federal officials give you access to these lists? have they said they will do that? >> we are having discussions and i believe that -- i'm hopeful that it will lead to allowing us to use these lists. that's why i said i will sign an executive order as soon as that agreement is reached. we are in discussion. there's a lot of support in washington for doing this. there is an understanding that this makes citizenry safer and i think, ultimately what we are also trying to do is let's have this as a national discussion out in the open so that people really understand that there are senators and congressmen who would deny this protection to people the very same congressmen and senators who don't want to let refuges go through up to 24-month screening process into our country, or candidates who
8:10 am
don't want to let people of certain faith come into our country. let's have a sane debate about the things we can do right now to make ourselves safer. >> thank you, governor. >> thank you very much governor malloy. can los angeles design its way out of a historic drought?ill talk to an architect coming up about his idea to

i'm chris bosh. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare
8:57 am
in reducing the risk of stroke. you know i tried warfarin but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. 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.
8:58 am
