the bay or summer inland valley locations. a live look outside right now. the golden gate bridge forcing a little bit of the fog. creeping through a lot of coastal spots that we're going to be seeing that during the overnight hours and then getting a little bit across the bay. but to interior valley should be a mostly clear skies during the overnight hours tonight, winds are going to pick up as well. right now we're seeing gusts of up to 25 miles per hour in some spots like right here in san francisco. now it's going to start to subside a bit during the evening hours tonight into the early morning hours and then things are going to pick up as we get into tomorrow afternoon and then tomorrow evening should be quite windy. primarily. along the coast, especially in our north zone. but gusts are going to be getting into the 20's even if you're going to be around the bay or further inland. so just keep that in mind for tomorrow. temperatures, though, like i was mentioning not going to be as toasty as what we saw today. in fact, a drop in temperature. so like in half moon bay we saw in the 70's there today. going to top out into the low 60's low 70's
8:31 pm
around the bay. that's where we saw 80's today. so definitely a feel there tomorrow. and then the low 80's for summer inland areas like antioch. you'll be at a high of 8183 in concord and then things are going to cool down even more getting into tuesday. i'll have that. my seven-day around the bay forecast coming up a little bit later. jonathan. >> rebecca, thanks. when 8 people died in a mass shooting at an indianapolis fedex facility thursday night. the news was compounded by a string of similar incidents that preceded it on march 16th. 8 people were killed at 3 atlanta-area spas. united states has had at least 45 mass shootings in just a matter of months. president joe biden has proposed a gun reform plan that could prevent potential mass shooters from buying guns. but how would move forward. san jose state political science lecturer donna crane joining us live tonight to discuss the details on what could potentially come next. donna, thanks so much for joining us here on kron, 4 news at 8. all right. so we
8:32 pm
know that this is on the table. the president talked about this last week when the prime minister of japan was visiting. he says obviously something needs to be done. his focus right now is trying to get an infrastructure plan. past. does this now kind of supersede what he believes needs to get done. >> i think the biden administration considers its number one assuming that recovery continues to go as well as it has for the last 3 months to be infrastructure. so i the gun safety issue remains very near and dear to president biden's heart something he's worked on for a number of decades when he was a senator. but i think he understands the politics of this is is going to do. everything he can by executive order and leave congress to do what congress does or, you know, fuss over this for a while. lunch pass or don't pass something. >> what we know that right now. something is not getting done at least in one chamber
8:33 pm
of congress. we know that the house has passed at least 2 gun bills in recent months. they have now been forwarded over to the senate where they are pretty much doormen at this point. and i know there has been talk about trying to eliminate the filibuster to allow these bills to move forward. does that happen? and just kind of what happens moving forward with at least these 2 bills. do they come up in the senate at all or are they pretty much just going to be dormant. >> i do think it's likely that schumer will probably bring something up for a vote because if you can't pass it, i think he would at least like to be able to use the votes going into the midterm elections. but have to remember that the senate's inaction on issues like this. is actually built into the constitution. it's sort of a feature of our democracy here in america because every state it's the same number of senators to no matter how many people they have. and so that
8:34 pm
builds in favor tilts, if you will, toward the more rural states and those were all states tend to be whiter, more conservative, more in favor of gun rights. so this is one of the reasons that these types of bills time to stall in the senate. it's it's it's built into a feature, not a bug. >> we know that the president has taken at least some steps to try do whatever he can. you mention the fact that he's taken some executive action. one of them was to unveil new rules on ghost guns which are those firearms assembled at home which lack serial numbers making making it difficult and harder for of folks to track. he also made some other moves to make it harder for an qualified people to dangerous weapons. >> he's made his moves. do you see do see these potential ideas are executive actions. you see these steps as being. key or do you see them actually having some type of teeth or impact moving forward.
8:35 pm
>> well, this is a great question. i would i would say yes. yes, i think they are solid steps forward. they are serious policy proposals. he does have some because of his executive i think that the moves he's making are also politically popular. the reason i might sting know, however, is that the courts have recently been stopped in a very conservative way for really the last 3, 4, decades. they've been moving up directions. conservatives have made a very strategy of of making the court more conservative and then once again, really took that to a new level. so almost a sure thing that any executive from president biden on gun safety is going to be challenged in the courts and the courts are quite conservative leaning on the ship while so a lot of folks hoping. >> that something can get done to try stem the tide of all the shootings that we have seen. so it will be very interesting to see what does happen in congress and what
8:36 pm
may come out of the white as a result of everything that's been happening. donna crane with san jose state. as always, we appreciate the knowledge and the time. >> thanks so much. thanks. still to come next in sports, the a's looking to break out the brooms today against the >> it was director jason dumas us with the highlights from that policy.
