frontrunner, donald trump, addressed gun control to a standing-room only crowd in tennessee yesterday. he spoke about enforcing existing laws and fixing the mental health system before making a statement on the recent mass shooting at the college in oregon. >> by the way, it was a gun-free zone. i will tell you, if you had a couple of the teachers or somebody with guns in that room you would have been a hell of a lot better off. >> he spoke on his personal gun ownership. one of trump's republican rivals took aim at him, carly fiorina spoke. >> she was a widow that lived in atlantic city, new jersey, and her house was taken away from
her by a combination of trump casinos and the local government, and this is an abuse of power. routine. that's what a clearly frustrated president obama called mass shootings in america following the deadly gunfire at a community college in oregon. it's the top issue on this morning's edition of "meet the press," and joining us now for a preview is moderator of nbc's "meet the press," chuck todd. thank you so much for being with us. >> good morning, ted. >> president obama promised to politicize the gun violence, and he talked about this at length. is there any chance we will finally see movement on this issue in washington, though? >> i highly doubt it. we will see. the last time the president promised to use the bully bull pit and promised to use his presidency to push the issue, it
was right after sandy hook and it generated a bill that got a vote and the bill did fail, and i think the best he can hope for if he wants to push this issue, is to force it on the campaign show. and the republican response to this is very similar, every candidate running for president had almost an identical response, it was hard to tell the difference from one candidate from the other. i had a long sit-down with donald trump and we began with the gun issue and he pivoted to mental health, and hillary clinton is saying time to take on the nra. i think we are at an intractable point. if the president wants to force a debate on the issue, he will have to use the rest of his 15 months to use the bully bull pit. the russians are launching air strikes in syria. are they undermining the u.s. effort to destroy isis?
>> look, it's clear that they are. especially -- the u.s. position essentially, you can't fully deal with isis until assad is out of power, and if russia is in there defending assad, the argument is you may never fully get rid of isis if we are stuck with keeping assad there, which is clearly where things may move towards whether we like it or not because of russia getting involved. and it's interesting to watch on the campaign trail and to preview some of the rest of my interview with donald trump, and trump's position on this is so different than any other candidate. he welcomes putin into syria, and wait until you hear what he has to say about saddam hussein and gadhafi and assad. >> we'll be watching. chuck todd, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> you got it. >> as chuck mentioned, he will
be talking with presidential frontrunner donald trump, and that's all on "meet the press" this morning at 10:30 here on nbc 10. we are just a few hours away from more flooding. >> yes, you know, you live there. >> 2:00, that's high tide. depending on where you are along the beaches, and with that said, we are looking at beach erosion and property damage so we have a coastal flood warning for the beaches, and that's until midnight tonight and any low lying areas could see flooding as we go throughout the day. temperatures chilly right now, mainly in the 50s, 55 degrees in philadelphia, and cold this morning in many spots. we're going to keep it cold throughout the afternoon. the big story seeing the winds, they are gusting up to 35 miles per hour in some spots like atlantic city, and otherwise windy and 63 today, and then breezy tomorrow, and tuesday, 70
