five killings, or 300 killings in a year, that makes the news and people want to feel safe. so we try to come up with bills, laws, that make people feel safe. perhaps, actually make them safe. >> while the laws might make people feel safe there are questions about effectiveness. four years, and millions of dollars after requiring ballistic fingerprinting of guns, not one crime had been solved using the technology. and the state were getting a carry permit is extremely difficult is the same state home to the second deadliest city in the country. >> the real problem is that baltimore may be the murder capitol of the year, but annapolis is the criminal capital of the state. because the politicians in the general assembly are passing laws that benefit criminals and failing to pass laws that protect public safety. >> even in tennessee, which is much more accepting of firearm rights, there is a heated debate over the new concealed carry

my colleagues in the legislature, because they are elected officials too and look at the same numbers and same budget. >> meantime, a commission of state lawmakers will soon begin tackling the thorny question of how to pay for the escalating tensions. >> they are partners. all trying to accomplish the same thing. we will not do things in an ethical and reasonable fashion. >> nancy grasmick said maryland teachers need not worry about retirement. hard work and sacrifice will be rewarded. but how the pensions are funded is far from being resolved. in baltimore. john rydell, fox 45 news at 10:00. >> there are currently more than 27,000 retired teachers receiving a state pension. . >> president barack obama moves closer to getting his health care overhaul. what republicans say is supposed to save money will do the opposite. >> this really could be the way we treat breast cancer 10 years from now. >> treating breast cancer

moisture moving in from the south. so humidity is going to be ahead of the front. as the front moves closer to our neck of the woods, we get the better chance for showers and thunderstorms firing off. closer look at some of the cloud cover over the area. high thin clouds. continue to be the case over virginia, central maryland. off-and-on clouds through the eveningment few pokes of stars through them. future scan shows the timing of rain. it looks like tomorrow morning dry. but by the afternoon, maybe a few pop-up showers and thunderstorms across the area. probably want to take your umbrellas with you as the potential is there. by the evening hours, things clear out again. and by friday, front moves closer. so better chance to get showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon and evening as we start to get closer to the weekend. here is how it plays out on the eastern shore for the forecast. 89 degrees. southwest wind at 10. with the chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms. and for you folks in cambridge and denton as far as the central portion of the state. looks like the same applies with temperatures around 83 to 88 degrees. and it looks like showers and
thunderstorms possible as we go through the day. warmer air ahead of the cold front. area of high pressure is riding the front and ahead of it. a trough that creates a bump in the atmosphere to allow for showers and thunderstorms firing up. here is the forecast. 88 degrees tomorrow. chance for showers and thunderstorms. 88 on friday. front will move through. cold front. and then we cool down to 80 on saturday. 81 on sunday. maybe a remaining warning shower sunday. but things better on sunday with more sun and clouds. back to you. >> thank you, vytas. >> a successful liftoff after six attempts in cape canaveral. the space shuttle endeavour took off at 6:03 tonight. shuttle's mission has been delayed for more than a month because of bad weather. seven astronauts are on board the shuttle headed for the international space station. mission lasts 16 days. >> the senate health committee passed its version of a health care reform measure today. the $600 billion bill would make
