6:25 am
safety of humanity for all of us every one of you standing here everyone you know. i walk down the path today. and it was just like reliving last year when we walked down the path. this has to stop. well the shooting sparked a national youth movement culminating in last spring's march for our lives where more than one million protesters turned out across the country the movement is credited with boosting youth turnout in november midterms estimates show a jump from twenty one percent to thirty one percent and even higher in florida where of course the shooting took place state legislature has passed sixty seven gun control or gun violence prevention bills in two thousand and eighteen with restrictions on the under twenty one's and domestic abusers but nearly one thousand
6:26 am
two hundred children were killed by gun violence or gun accidents in the last year and that excludes an estimated thousand more who killed themselves with guns well eugenia watt vigeland is the associate director of gun violence prevention policy at the center for american progress he joins us live now from washington d.c. sir thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera so it's been a year and it has been a year where the issue has been highlighted and some steps forward have been taken but do you think they've been significant enough. so as you mentioned there has been significant steps at a state level you mentioned the sixty seven laws that have passed at a state level that are common sense measures that will reduce gun violence in contrast only nine that we can see that we consider dangerous regulations such as arming teacher were passed out of state level so there's a huge difference there you can also see as you mention on the on the midterm election in the last year gun violence was one of the main issues was actually the
6:27 am
fourth main issue for borders according to exit polls and they voted for four for politicians that were willing to act to reduce gun violence in this country and you can you see that the house immediately took steps by introducing h.r. eight which is the background checks bill that would expand background checks not only to sales at gun dealers but also to private gun sales at gun shows and online so yes they are steps that have been taking that obviously more and more needs to be done we do advocate for an assault weapons ban we advocate for more research on gun violence among other things we know that a lot of the legislation obviously gets stuck when it comes to politics in the u.s. because it's such a divisive issue with a lot of people just opposing any kind of reform that would smack of gun control to them or you know of sort of stopping them having access to guns but because of the
6:28 am
changes that have come about from the midterms are you hopeful that in a sense we're going to get more change in the coming year than we have in the first year after the parklands shooting. i do i'm very hopeful first of all because of the response from survivors the students particularly the students for on from parkland that have raised her voice that create awareness in this country you see the polls people now support almost one hundred percent universal background checks more than sixty percent of the people support banning assault weapons you see come in sense measures that are highly supported by the u.s. population now you see the house has been acting and that's going to put a lot of pressure on the senate and the senators that are up for election in two thousand and twenty need to be paying attention to this need to hear what people are saying we need to hear what people are demanding the people united states no longer want to see ninety five people killed each day with a gun and more than two hundred being injured there no longer want to see
6:29 am
a mass shooting so the people in politics here in washington need to hear that what do you think it was about the talk on shooting that i guess turned into a catalyst that that brought about you know the first steps of this change because it dreadful though it was of course it's hardly unique. i mean in that regard i'm not particularly certain of what it was i can speculate that you know numerous mass shootings have been happening in this country including the deadliest one which was in las vegas on october two thousand and seventeen and then the southern and springs shooting in texas a month later so there have been a couple mass shootings happening. and then parklane happened and i also want to recognize the bravery and the way that the students have raised their voice in this country using social media demanding their politicians take action i think those two factors are very important in why the parklane movement. became such
6:30 am
a so powerful that it affected the midterm elections in november will be interesting to see what if any and hopefully there will be a changes we're going to see in the coming year for the moment eugena vigeland associate director of gun violence prevention policy at the center for american progress sir thank you so much for having shared your thoughts with us thank you for having us the senior democrat on the u.s. senate foreign relations committee has called on the trumpet ministration to turn over all documents related to the killing of the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi senator ball but menendez sent a letter to secretary of state might pump ale requesting records about whether any senior saudi official including the crown prince mohammed bin someone was responsible for his death was killed last october after he entered the saudi consulate in istanbul his body has never been found. an award winning journalist has been freed on bail in the philippines a day after her widely condemned of arrest on libel charges maria ressa heads the
