hi, i'm sandra gartman. welcome to portal. your gateway to some of our to 0 as best online content. this week we're focusing on guns in the us, if the country with more firearms than people and the highest level of civilian gun ownership in the world. ah, we've got a powerful film about how gun violence is playing out on the streets of new york. look at the complicated politics and log around gun ownership and the push for stricter controls. and we'll hear why more and more black americans are exercising their constitutional right to bear arms. feel the 1st one actually empowered. it was a general and we're going to start in new york. shootings in the city surged and 2020 to levels not seen in 10 years. you can see the devastating impact the tide on
people's lives and neighborhoods like the bronx. where for many people don't violence as part of everyday life. in this episode of the online documentary series fly on the wall filmmaker guy, you go spend time in the bronx and meets people there who are trying to stop the cycle of violence the the mr. ups going on here in the country everywhere. david vom, as long as you the end up dead or jail many shootings, much poverty is going to get worse. and i also believe that violence keep one creasing where live in dangerous time. right now we did is lisa gunshot. if somebody saw the gunshot, this is why i
i don't i no matter where you go, you will not work 10 times harder than the next person. because we are minorities. we often the project. we often, the bronx, the bronx, we're black, we're hispanics. and within the project, i saw 3 strikes automatically. my nephew got murder. that was to come to my house. he was walking away and they shot him back. and i heard it. it was, it was a was feeling is
a way just this to know that he was on the floor dying for what ah, whatever they know we used to be in there. so we change our life and they see that we change so they can change to their respect. what we're doing, ah, what i do is talk to them, let them know. listen, we don't want no shooting, we don't want no violence. the violence is increased because there's really nothing to do in the neighborhood. poverty would come from, you know, one of the poorest boroughs when we pull burrows in the nation. you know, so, i mean, it's tough times and to alcove it. you know, there's no worries, you know, people's lives in the jobs. i mean, they're hanging out guns out here like it's candy, unfortunately. and they don't care what age. it always seems tragedy to
me. somebody j my in my tragedy was. 2 was going to jail vision of death penalty in doing that and making it out of that situation. said mary, no, i got to be here for a reason. and now i'm helping know the younger ones underneath i it's our client was a good judy. i mean, they were older, you know, it's all the old toxic kids around and they could just blended and see what was going on. now. you know, it's your store. it's just one thing. after all, the, you know, new york reactions don't,
don't solve anything. basically. no one's being held on down and everyone is being led out of out of jail and arrested. police can't enforce the laws. the way we used to. they tied to hands of the police. morale is, is an issue. it doesn't make sense to me. then all these people are being shot now she and young children being shot now, city and know elected officials are saying we're living on destroyed time where no one to take the time out and have understanding what's really going on. i was very bad. you know, i was selling drugs in gangs hurting people and something had happened. my son was murdered and he was only 16 years old. so this motivated me to stop other people from becoming my son. really the core problem
of despair and despair. so people fall into, into despair is like pick up anything by next, like you know, where there's a gun or knife, you know, anything like that. so does how i go up. i bought it out to you specifically buying guns because one year for the protection will block your shot. but then somebody will close me. dodd, because of com violence and then after that is my dad. money life already short. so that's what i did. i started, this is my cell from people are nose like that. i got my head off from school, went to college and all my stuff. i now just focus on on my life and make sure me and my family lead to her. so we don't have to go to the the politics and culture around guns in the u. s. is complicated
to say the least and of course it goes back to the founding fathers, the constitution guarantees the right to bear arms. but what does that actually mean in 2021. so far this year there have been more than 270 my shootings and president joe biden has called for tougher gun laws. on this episode of start here, my team and i break down how gun laws work and whether they can change the let's talk about guns and the law. there are more guns and people in the us, nearly 400000000 of them. and those are just the ones accounted for. so far this year, more than $20000.00 people have died because of a gun. that's roughly a 100 people killed in the country every single day. yet again in america, innocent families are swamped to their knees in grief on another weekend of gun violence. a deadly shooting had a boulder, colorado grocery store, not shooting,
grab the headlines, but gun violence goes way beyond that. homicides, police, shootings, domestic violence, accidents, and suicide. which make up the highest number of gun related death gun violence is taking more lives than any other public health. the crisis of our time, we lose roughly $40000.00 lives every year to done violence in this country. and that we're behind 40000 emily's friends to friendship circle. community gun violence in this country is an epidemic. and it's international buyers. the president wants to do something about it, but there's resistance. they'd rather get top on the law abiding. then go out and get top on criminal. so how do us gun law actually work? why are some americans against tougher gun control? and what does president biden to do about it? ah,
ah, most americans agree on one thing. gun violence is a problem. according to one survey, it's a pretty huge majority with only 6 percent who say it's not a problem at all. the question of how to tackle gun violence, where there's debate at the heart of that debate, if gun control and whether more laws are needed. but before we get into that, let's debug that gun control anything new. hundreds of years ago. there were rules about owning ammunition. you had to register to own gunpowder. you had to register your guns. you couldn't carry your guns with you in town. i have on your guns over we had in the late 1700 in the populated cities like boston in new york, philadelphia for that matter gun regulations which today would be unimaginable. in the 1930, they found machine guns in response to guy who's in the late sixty's. after this destination of president j,
a k. the gun control act came in and imposed regulations on the firearms industry and came up with a list of people who could be denied the sale of guns. and in the ninety's president clinton's crime, male introduce a federal ban on assault weapons. but that expired 10 years later, we always respected the both gun right and gun regulations and that goes back to the constitution for americans being able to own a gun as a basic right up there with free speech. the 2nd amendment says, a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. what does that mean? well, for a couple of 100 years, the understanding focused on that mention of the militia, it's really the idea that the states would serve as a check against a possible tyrannical government makes on seeing as it was written after the war of independence. and that idea still process today, but in 2008, there was a landmark supreme court decision that focused on the 2nd half. it's known as the
heller case. the court ruled that a ban on hand guns in the district of columbia was unconstitutional. and for the 1st time, affirmed the right for individuals to keep arms for self defense in the home. there was an enormous change in the sort of legal meaning of the, of the constitution. now, most americans already believed what the supreme court held was already in the popular view and that shift in thinking among americans started happening well before 2008. 4050 years ago. we see that people predominantly owned guns for hunting or for sport. and now we're seeing a big shift towards the primary reason people are owning firearm is related to self defense. the lot of it has to do with marketing around gun ownership. so in the decline of hunting down lobby recognized that they needed new ways to motivate
people to own firearms. the national rifle association, the u. s. has main gun rights advocacy group has also played a big part of that and pushing the idea that guns are needed for self defense. the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun from mike or dan. they've really changed the everyday politics of guns and how people relate to a part of your identity. it's part of what makes you who you are. you are the kind of person who takes your right seriously. you're going to exercise them. you are not going to rely on someone else to solve your problems, the gun from the likely that we can't get away from the fact that this is all super political. and we see that when it comes to support for gun laws overall more than half americans favors stricter laws. the when you break that down more than 80 percent of demo support, more gun control compared to just 20 percent of republicans. republicans have
placed more important on gun rights, whereas democrats police more important on gun regulation that partisan gap 30 years ago was probably 20 point, which is big right now. it's almost 50 points, which is a greater gap partisan gap than you know, almost any other issue in american political life. so what did us gun laws look like? well, that depends on where you live. there are federal laws that apply across the whole country, that for instance, been convicted felons, people with mental illness or kids under 18 from buying guns. but then there are state laws and each state has a lot of leeway to enforce their own regulations. and they differ pretty widely in states that are controlled by democrats and that are controlled by republicans. the difference you see in regulation i think, reflects the sort of underlying, partisan divide in massachusetts, a strongly democratic state. you need to police permit and a background check to buy a gun. while republican control texas recently passed a law allowing people to carry concealed handguns without any permit. now we're at
the point where 20 states, you don't have any obligation to get a permit, which means you don't have to have a background check. you don't need any additional training. so now we've got a democrat in the white house. the president biden has declared gun violence of public health epidemic. his plan to tackle it include more money for community programs to address some of the root causes of gun violence. whether that, housing, whether that education, whether that deployment services, how do we channel, all of these programs help reduce this crisis. bit frankly, is now no one called the debt for all you in america. and the number one called the deaths. the black men in america on the legal side biden wants to toughen up gun laws and make sure the ones that already exist are actually applied, including 0 tolerance for real good gun dealers. if you will sell a gun to someone who's prohibit from possessing it. if you willfully fail to run a background check if you willfully false fire record,
if you willfully fail to cooperate with the tracy request or inspections my messages use, this will find you. he also wants to tightened the rules on what are called ghost guns. either weapons sold and parts and without a serial number, so they can't be traced right now. in the us, you could go on the internet, you can buy kit that you can get shipped to your house without a background check. and with youtube video instructions and a little bit of know how you can create a fully functional firearm. another big thing bite and wants to do is bring back the ban on assault weapons guns like the semi automatic a r 15 rifle. according to a newsweek investigation, this type of gun was used in more than a quarter of the last 80 mass shootings like this years attacking a supermarket in boulder, colorado. the orlando nightclub shooting in 2016 and at sandy hook elementary school, where 20 children and 6 teachers were killed in 2012. but can he do it?
a democrats pushed for more gun control. there are plenty of voters and politicians and congress who say, guns just aren't the problem. they're talking about, oh, we need to stop there. 15 these up. they are 15, you know more people are stab to death and they're shot with air 15. so it's just, it's absurd hype and it's, it's, it's mostly just nonsense. let's target the bad guys, the felons, the fugitives, those with mental disease, but put them in jail. let's stop them from getting guns. let's not go innocent, law abiding citizens, and let's not target their constitutional rights. no, even though we always hear about how america is so divided over guns, there's another way to look at it. i think maybe the central misunderstanding, including within the united states about the gun debate is the idea of a gun rights and gun regulation are mutually exclusive and that's just not true. there is a very broad, moderate middle, including a lot of gun owners. there's a great deal with regard for example,
to background checks. now this is more political battle. it is a public opinion about guns aren't going away. that's a non starter in the us. but if americans can find that common ground to look at policies, they can agree on, or maybe that's where there's a chance of saving lives. the, there was just heard gun ownership in the us comes down to people exercising their constitutional right. and that's something that black americans are doing and growing numbers. last year, black people accounted for the biggest increase in firearm sales. and this film for a day plus in my in banga, visited a firing range to find out what it means to be a black gun owner. in a country with a history of limiting black people have access to firearms. the don't be locked so tight that you're like, right, go, relax a little bit. what's the most important thing is?
safety, safety. what's the most important thing of what's going on there? now? they have rights in the us has at least 63000000 more guns than it does. people and the most civilians with firearms globally. some of the people you're watching are new to an ownership and handling some of inherited gun culture from previous generations of family and all of them are the legacy of black people, lengthy and complicated relationship with bearing arms in the us. one of the things that black people wanting to wire along with, along with land, along with education, was the right to bear arms with the right to protect themselves and their families . these are the thesis we normally see for the voices we normally hear when the u. s talks about gun rights and ownership. feel the 1st time you saw me actually empowers it, was a gentleman rush fine. what does it mean to be
a block on owner in this nation? ah, i'm taking a gun safety course in the middle of the cove in 1900 pandemic. in this session there 62 students with varying degrees of gun knowledge. i've had my gun since 2010 i shoot off and on, but lately i felt the need to be more proactive and getting training this when i look at tv, i guess so frustrated. you know, i just felt like i need to be more prepared. dorothy wilson is like all the other attendees, the army owner and all of the instructors block. now there's no magazine is going to is this gun now state no one knew. we realize that a lot of people, but it looked like us really didn't have the education, so good upon ourselves to take on the challenge of educating people,
getting involved in the community and let them know that bar arms are safe and can be fun. and they can get that proper training, but he would look like, how many guns would you say you have to? that's a tricky question. i have, i have a lot of gun rifle shot guns, hand guns from customer gun. the higher education happening on this one is integrative of much larger trends. when people in the us are concerned about their safety. they buy more guns. here's what monthly firearm sales look like in the last decade. we see them spike during 2 occasions. one is emergencies, like the sandy hook, san bernardino, and the parkland mass shooting or the cooper 19 pandemic. the 2nd rise we see in gun sales is doing proto, like the nationwide ones we've watched all summer
in the spring alone, the u. s. had an increase of $3000000.00 more requests that normally would for criminal background checks during that period. those background checks have a close correlation with fire and fail, and 40 percent of gun buyers during this. pandemic have been 1st timers, but how equitably or gun owners treat it is different for us. you don't see the same type of treatment to black. people who advocate right to bear arms in practice, right to bear arms. as you do for white organizations and why groups american society, i can yearly says black people in the us always have had to fight for their right to be art, history and resistance. pre dates are non violent from the very inception of our black people being in america with this thing. they oftentimes had to expropriate weapons from new york presses to resists. of course,
our slaveholders created policies to dis, arm us. but it was an ambivalent policy because if they thought it meant the interest, they would arm black people. this is what many people think of when they think about black resistance in the u. s. the civil rights i can nearly says it couldn't have happened without armed black people. this is something this often times when it, when we talk about the success of violence, many other communities, not violence, would not have been able to operate without black people who were to protect and an activist particularly to places like rural louisiana, rural mississippi being rural, georgia off the, oftentimes the now violent activists would not as the bad because they weren't
protected by police. the us just tension with blank on it has been codified in long like when then california governor ronald reagan with the n r 8 support signed the multiple which prevented the open carry of loaded firearms at the time. reagan said, there's absolutely no reason why out on the street today, civilian should be caring, a loaded weapon. the dock was a response to the members of the black panthers who saw their decision to be armed as a necessity and a political choice, as opposed to a personal one important for us to get organized and be trained and be politically aware of that. so we can protect our communities, take our household, protect our live, continue this our resistance in our community for freedom and self determination.
