what he had to say. all it comes down to is life or death. to all of the politicians out there if you take money from the n.r.a. you have chosen. if you have not expressed your constituents a public stance on this issue you have chosen to ask if you do not stay with us by saying we need to pass commonsense gun legislation you have chosen and none of the millions of people marching in this country today will stop until they see those against us out of office because we live. from on this front joined by our correspondent alex hunter phenomenon who is in washington alexander we've just had one of the students give a very passionate speech to the people there is the general mood and atmosphere at the rally. i'm
sorry i couldn't hear you question but i can just tell you that i am very impressed from what i've been seeing here and from my conversations with students who are so world you know world what's going on and which proposals are being discussed and who are so determined to put up pressure on their politicians to tighten gun control and i'm now joined by two students from new york is jay leno and morgan thank you for being with us can you tell us more why it's important for you to be here to participate in this march i think it's important to participate in this march to show that we really care about gun control in schools and across the nation and we need to ensure the safety of other people and people in schools and churches to learning environment and community are you concerned about your own
safety when you go to school. when i'm in school whenever they say lockdown or a theme even if now the announcement speech comes on i just start to get a little nervous but ever these knew when they say chill but i feel that people shouldn't have to go to school to learn and not to be scared just like gun control because it benefits everyone. so are you hopeful that you know we will see gun control tightens soon dad see you protest will impress the politicians and you know that something is going to change yes i really do hope everything we're doing now will hope change because as of right now it doesn't make sense that our schools are being armed we're having so many primaries when instead of sort of arming them it should give us better stuff and make us more aware of it and lead to more safety a sort of more violence what kind of legislations would you like to see. on.
the what do you think about the president's proposal to armijo teacher as i think it's really full of him it doesn't make any sense for someone that we're supposed to trust to come to for help now we have to be careful of them and always be careful because you don't know if they're ever going to have a problem and be upset and just pop off in a studio and something and marco what would you seeing what should happen now which kind of legislation would you like to see raising committee moment age to buy a gun or you know to ban and sold weapons what would you say i would like to have a site i would like to ban assault weapons across the nation for everyone to ensure safety and so on i would like to see a trickle ations on guns to ensure a safe environment what would you tell people who say these are just kids stay don't know how politics works. i'd like to say to them even though we are you we still do know what's going on people think we're just here to get. well it's beyond
t.v. but no because we really want to see it changed i mean you see it. and when people say we're just kids sure we are kids but. also politicians. thank you very much for being here so as you could see those students are really determined to keep on going keep up the pressure on the law and lawmakers to tighten gun control alexander fundament thank you very much for the latest there in washington . investigators looking into a hostage taking and shooting incident at a supermarket in southern france have discovered homemade explosives at the site of the attack they also found one hundred and one hunting knife now the policeman who offered himself as a hostage during the hostage situation has died in hospital. is being hailed

in its nature whereas before hand attacks would be masterminded from abroad from countries like iraq iraq and syria nowadays there was this homegrown terrorism so the police had to deal with people who had never left france to get ridiculous who got radicalized here in france and are staging attacks and that's obviously a lot more difficult to detect and the police will have to adapt this to this new kind of threat. that was lisa lewis in paris let's not look at some of the other stories making news around the world two policemen have been killed in a car bomb attack in the gyptian city of alexandria the target was reportedly a convoy carrying the city's security chief the attack comes just two days before egypt's presidential election no group has yet claimed responsibility. british regulators have raided the london offices of data from cambridge analytical they're investigating whether the company improperly used data from some fifty
