next hill day what does that do to your mornings that does it does it not make you feel constantly vigilant pen oh no i mean definitely prepared all the way but i also have a family that love and care about very much so. if you watch the news you see it all the time home invasion here home invasion there highway shooting i mean it's pretty much it can be like the wild west out here. most shootings take place in domestic situations a sizeable number of people who kill other people are so-called law abiding citizens the law abiding citizen produces a lot of the fatalities by mistake in anger or by accident. several years ago there was a trauma surgeon here in memphis who did a study of murders in two different urban areas. saying if the presence or
11:01 pm
absence of guns in a home was a trigger already protection order and his conclusion was that the presence of the gun was more likely to cause a murder or death by gun then the absence of a good in a home. financial life guy. i prize on with features. of the five. is the last of my it's in the future. if they are imposing their sanctions we just start developing our domestic capabilities and
11:02 pm
topping our internal resources because you remember how during the previous u.s. administration they said that the russian economy will be in shambles but pointing to falling oil prices and sanctions and all that stuff. are we in shambles now quite the opposite. this is hotter than kentucky. boys people families where you. need. a co money city with almost no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the coal was said. live to seize people the survivors of disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened
11:03 pm
to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought. in a million years i would say that in the end it's happened it's happened. the protests held against the n.r.a. convention took place ten days after columbine. what happened at columbine on april twentieth one thousand nine hundred nine was that two two young men who were intent on killing as many students as they could they opened fire on students outside and then went when confronted with a police presence they went inside the school. began shooting there went into the library that's where they killed and injured the most students and that's that's
11:04 pm
where my son was it went worse as the day went on no word from him being asked by the police if we could provide a description of him and what he was wearing at one point asking for dental records and being told at one point that there was one last call by us bringing students. back from. when you're waiting for forty five minutes for a bus that should have only taken a couple of minutes i then began to realize that there was no ask us. how old was daniel. fifteen.
11:05 pm
seventeen years ago when we last met i think it ended in tears for me because i realized again what i what i would do if they came to take my gun that would be the end of it for. this country for sure and i'm not willing to hand that over. no i'm able to do it and i know i would do it. protect my rights. the rights of my friends the rights of my loved ones the rights
11:06 pm
of this country. you mean struggle. or i don't think so. either of you or i would let it go easily and probably not while i'm living. i feel like there are a lot of gun owners out there who don't take the responsibility of owning guns carrying guns storing guns i don't think they take it seriously enough why the resistance to regulation. because it leads to more regulation. that's too slippery of a slope we can have the law to protect people from their own stupidity. one hundred eighty degrees backus guys he's a word sexy when they talk about guns i'm not going to but they're all mantic. they're emotional. you
11:07 pm
know when. you don't know you. know when. you don't know. you don't know you in. a well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state comma the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. the second amendment in every state constitution guarantees my right to keep and bear arms why for my personal safety and to preserve liberty that's why it's called america. i run with swordfish and i've heard him say you need to call i think for somebody shooting in here. mass shootings in america have become almost commonplace but the sandy hook
11:08 pm
school massacre where six and seven year olds were targeted by gunman reached a new level of horror and cops the rules of the american gun debate. today cause me to want to strengthen and absolutely not i think if one of those teachers the principal who never had had a gun that young man possibly would not have killed anyone or. do you think it's he. i think a properly trained teacher can and can and just do you need to deal with i think is friggin fantastic certain school districts are training their teachers so they can carry a weapon. and school. we go through drills and we put ourselves in real scenarios it was interesting to see
11:09 pm
how fast we get on the buses how fast we do this who actually got hit by the paintball gun. straight cool but pretty. scary to the swat team comes in are and they're like ok everybody out you know put your hands up and we're all put our hands up we're terrified and takes us out so. we had a thought to him yes we did. yes this is a middle school. so we could do. that possibility of oh yeah we could be prepared. what do every single mass shooting have in common gun free zone. i mean i was i think it was a color blind. from
11:10 pm
my cold dead. you know i think that part of the problem is that that the gun lobby has been very successful in getting their message out much more so than those who want to see reasonable gun laws they control the narrative that you're either for the second amendment or against it you're either for freedom or against freedom those surest way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good way that guy. you're after these mass shootings gun sales do tend to go up just because people start getting freaked out people think that the government is going to take our guns i mean i hate seeing the shootings happen but it is definitely it is good for business. this is
11:11 pm
a smith and wesson m.m.p. fifteen it is our best selling weapon right now you know pretty tough. here. and. as. a sole weapon seem to control the city here. what is that this is a semiautomatic rifle. is it is it not an assault weapon no one else. semiautomatic one pull the trigger one shot and that is what differentiates is it in your eyes the fight the ones fully automatic and the other isn't right why are they called survivor so that. because the media and the left wing politicians one meg bogeyman out as. a tool. please assault rifle i mean this is
11:12 pm
by even about what it is i know i know and i should even call them an assault rifle we're going to it's a military style weapon that's what they want me to say a sporting gun you know you know different names but it's the same thing it's a military style weapon. not a reason to buy an assault rifle is if you're going to make an assault on an enemy position and you need a lot of bullets because you got a lot of people in the position you're attacking the assault rifle was mere pharmacy. it seems to me you don't need an assault rifle to kill a deer this is this ongoing debates that some people have about whether. things like the a k forty seven and the a r fifteen are so weapons are not that whole discussion is absurd that the s.t. greatest friend of a mass shooter could have. been handing out one. to
11:13 pm
two killers. went out in search of guns they were under eighteen they got an eighteen year old to go to the gun show to a gun show with them to make the purchase they purposely sought out a private seller that's the so-called gun show loophole where you can go to a gun show you know one table for it's a licensed dealer you have to go through a background check table of a private seller no background check. yes guns and i sold and everybody sells every gun dealer that i found all around the united states in crimes they should have you know mandatory registration nationwide everybody owns a gun it should be registered and i am and they're responsible for that weapon why should you let some kid walk in a gun store buy fifteen guns and be able to give them to fifteen of his friends
11:14 pm
with no receipt that even sold them and everything is legal that means guns could be shipped in from the east coast in the west coast and sold in a newspaper to it to anybody that can pass a background check that's how the criminals get guns. about forty percent of all gun sales are private sales they don't go through a background check and these are not going through a licensed dealer imagine going to an airport and have to go through security and they said ok we're in have sixty percent of the people go through security and forty percent can bypass it when you get onto that airplane. i think. i can take you right now thirty three miles from here and buy you anything you want on the side of the road to studying the black market dealers it's out there
11:15 pm
facebook for example you can buy guns on. you know but just prior to they properly and that is still legal in tennessee you can as of now you can still be product sales in tennessee but without without a background check you can't so you can so that any one yes so to try to introduce the law. that shouldn't be made out. without a background check do you should. you know. after her not so well there needs to be some things done to people where they're back to working again and not being given money by the government to run around and do whatever they will do there's a lot of things we could there dressed maybe that's not the only problem could be some mental health issues could be drugs cause a major problem i don't know that but we are not the problem. it's.
11:16 pm
going to be. should anything be done. now. the national solution take it's course. young no. no no no no no no no. turkey's decision to invade northern syria has foreign policy implications far beyond the middle east what are anchor his objectives in syria and the region doesn't to silicate or hinder a final peace settlement to syria's proxy civil war and what is turkey's future in
11:17 pm
nato. a plate for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside god's. football isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super manager kill the narrowness and spend the two to twenty million. it's an experience like nothing else on here because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy a great so one more chance. and thinks it's going to. come on match up. this little bundle of joy he would have no chance of surviving in the wild motherland as can only win one come at a time but usually get to. china but
11:18 pm
a lot of effort into making up for this cruel mistake of nature. is just a. shyness penned the breeding has become something of a production line. it's almost as though they've been copied three d. printed and put on show for the public. several cubs are born here each year. but only left work by dedicated scientists will be for nothing if panda of can't be encouraged in captivity it's not as though they don't practice a tool but in the same lazy way they do everything else this proud mommy gave birth to twins and has no idea that a special love potion was formulated just for the. drugs of the dog close to the best out of the dogs with. the concepts
11:19 pm
i was preparing to perform i had to actually prepare myself to die i. don't know said he'd what i'm so sorry trust me i asked him. as most are. you. in homo stuff her. scanty clothes. and he had the goods sewed on. so we'll see him getting. what. was it he could with us the logic that yes scared me she. had to finish in there a couple so kind of point a b.s. i didn't hear you.
11:20 pm
think it's terrible you want to know the truth i think it's a disgrace a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and. much worse than that the f.b.i. and the u.s. justice department security warned to spy on donald trump's two thousand and sixteen election campaign using a highly dubious report paid for by partially by democrats the newly declassified memo claims. the world anti-doping agency says it is seriously concerned with a decision by sports top court to overturn lifetime olympic bans imposed on twenty eight russian athletes also ahead. migrants are shot and dozens more injured in a mass brawl at a food bank in the french port city of coulée
11:21 pm
a number of locals we've heard from tell us that they are now living in fear. or you would do i think we need a structure put in place to protect this but there's a lot of delinquency here it's a catastrophe for the french and especially for the people of cali the violence is pretty damaging. our broadcasting live director our studios in moscow this is our national shantanu certainly glad to have you with us now the controversial congressional memo that has been stealing the headlines in recent weeks has now been released after receiving approval from the u.s. president it accuses the f.b.i. and justice department of securing a warrant to spy on donald trump's presidential campaign based on the unverified claims in the trump russia steal dossier which was paid for in part by the democrats i think it's terrible if you want to know the truth i think it's
11:22 pm
a disgrace what's going on in this country i think it's a disgrace and when you look at that and you see that and so many other things what's going on. a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and much worse than that well if you take a look at the four page memo facts now christopher steele. ca this was the basis on which the f.b.i. acquired their warrant under the foreign intelligence surveillance act their warrant to wiretap members of the trauma campaign that was based on the infamous r.c.a. from christopher steel now we also know that the f.b.i. chief said it was so lace this and verify furthermore the f.b.i. was aware that the d.n.c. and the hillary clinton foundation paid roughly one hundred sixty thousand dollars for this deal dossier they knew it was paid for by the d.n.c. but they did not mention that in their applications for a warrant from pfizer courts furthermore steele wasn't only working for the
11:23 pm
democrats christopher steele was a long time paid f.b.i. informant and they departed just as the f.b.i. were well aware of the fact that christie resteal had an agenda against trump was quite biased they still used the report furthermore we know that the deputy attorney general bruce or his wife was actually hired by fusion g.p.s. the firm that the democrats hired in order to get this information on trump so essentially this document points to the fact there was a great deal of what appears to be collusion between the clinton campaign and and the f.b.i. and department of justice two entities that are essentially supposed to be bipartisan enforcers of u.s. law it appears according to this document or at least it's purported in this document that they were working to prevent the election of donald trump and we heard of many calls from many prominent figures for this document to remain classified they wanted this four pages to be not in the perspective and not available to the american public remember nancy pelosi the leader of the democrats
11:24 pm
in the u.s. house of representatives said that releasing this document which is now fully public would somehow be a threat to the national security of the united states intelligence is that it's the cia that d.n.a. at the end i have a. national defense everybody has their element of it and so it is the americans must be protected now. now as the debate about the releasing of the memo ask elated russia most certainly came into the picture there was a letter that was sent to the owners of twitter and facebook urging them to investigate the role of russian bots or possible russian bots in the past stagg released the memo furthermore we even saw an escalation of this rhetoric with allegations that devin noon is the chair of the house intelligence committee was himself a russian agent let's take a listen to what some of what was said isn't possible that the republican chair of the house intel committee has been compromised by the russians as a possible of the actual russian agents reading the house intel committee on the
11:25 pm
republican side and i hope that's not the case i mean this is behavior speak of that though i mean i'm not the first person who's raised this he's behaving like someone who's been compromised now we're waiting for a different reactions to come in but all eyes are on washington d.c. as the four pages have been released and the memo is now public. it's now across live to john kiriakou former cia analyst and whistleblower to discuss the situation further thanks for being with us here on r t international so . it's out there there's all of the controversy surrounding it is you know controversy no more than no no one can say hey release it it's been released what do you make of the memo specifically and what are some of the takeaway points that we can get from it that the democrats have their propaganda points and the republicans had their propaganda points these aren't the original f.b.i. documents this is the republican majority staff of the house intelligence committee
11:26 pm
giving their interpretation there now it's those documents so propaganda wise it's a draw with that said i think that this is this contains some troubling evidence of f.b.i. malfeasance those of us who are critics of the f.b.i. have been saying this for years this is how the f.b.i. does business they do. surreptitiously they do it by stabbing people in the back they do it by setting people up by entrapping them by tricking them and that's exactly what they did with the price of court they played the fisa court judge by not telling them the source of this deal does the they plead that judge by not telling them that this was a partisan. report and and they got their warrant they got their warrant anyway kurta page said today on fox news here in the united states that he looks forward to preparing his lawsuit against the department of justice and i think the man has a point. all right so does this. as
11:27 pm
some are claiming show that the f.b.i. and justice department were biased against the trunk campaign or is there more to it i think it does i think it shows that the f.b.i. was biased against the trunk campaign don't forget also that a lot of these justice department officials who are being implicated in this whole thing or holdovers from the obama administration and not just justice department but also f.b.i. you know people are people they can't help but to be partisan when when an f.b.i. official goes to see the president and the president says who did you vote for which you should ask but he did anyway and the responses i didn't vote well we know that's just not true people are partisan because it's human nature so now the f.b.i. was investigating both of the trump and clinton campaigns back in two thousand and six sixteen but kept quiet only about the trump investigation do you think that
11:28 pm
this undermines the claims that there was a conspiracy against trump specifically. yeah i wouldn't go so far as to say that it was a conspiracy against the trump campaign but i would say that the f.b.i. was certainly targeting the trump campaign these these text messages between former f.b.i. agent stroh's ik and his girlfriend an f.b.i. attorney ironically named page but not related to carter page shows that f.b.i. agents that were working on the clinton investigation were biased they were biased against donald trump now you don't have to love donald trump to conclude that don't trump was wrong you don't have to love and support donald trump to realize that the f.b.i. overstepped and i believe the f.b.i. may have committed a crime by not being honest with the face of court what about the consequences of the memo and the release will be are we going to be seeing some national security
11:29 pm
interest to jeopardized oh no i don't think so at all i think that was completely overblown by the democrats part of the problem that we have in cases like this and this is this is well known in the intelligence community is the over classification of information you know so much was made this past week about this memo being redacted that it was going to the white house for redactions it was going back to the hill for redactions well they released it today and not one single word was redacted and the only thing that might be kind of somewhat sensitive is the fact that curt page was under investigation big deal nothing else in that in that report was was rightfully classified. all right john it curiosity certainly interesting to hear your thoughts is going to interesting to see the fallout of this as it plays out thanks for being with us here on our t.v. international. now the u.s.
11:30 pm
defense department published this nuclear posture review on friday outlining its nuclear strategy apart from strengthening its nuclear capability the doctrine takes a seemingly tougher stance on china russia and north korea claiming the states represent a unique and complex threat the review also points out that the united states would not hesitate to respond to a non-nuclear attack using nuclear weapons it also emphasized that u.s. diplomats would continue to speak from a position of strength. all right justice for their let's cross live to paul heroes mayor of alibre massachusetts thanks for being with us here on r t international. so let's get right down to it how do you evaluate the newly released review is this a throwback to cold war era tactics or is there something much more to it. well the vast majority of the nuclear.
