WRONG THING TO DO.

AMERICANS.

GRAHAM, CBN

TEXAS GOVERNOR RICK PERRY

SAYS GUN LAWS WON'T SAVE THEM

FROM MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE AND

TIME TO PRAY FOR HELP.

NORTH CAROLINA COULD VOTE TO

CARRY WEAPONS AT SCHOOLS OR

CHURCHES.

ONE WOULD ALLOW SOMEONE WITH A

CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT INSIDE A

SCHOOL IF A DISTRICT HAS AN

AUTHORIZED POLICY.

THAT CHANGE WOULD OPEN THE DOOR

FOR SOMEONE WITH A CONCEALED

CARRY PERMIT TO CARRY INSIDE A

CHURCH.

SUPPORTERS AND OPPONENTS

PACKED THE STATE HOUSE TUESDAY

AS HOUSE COMMITTEE HEARD HOURS

OF TESTIMONY.

RHODE ISLAND ALLOWS CIVIL

UNIONS.

THE ONLY STATE IN NEW ENGLAND

THAT DOES NOT ALLOW GAY COUPLES

TO WED.

PREVIOUS EFFORTS TO PASS HAVE

FAILED.

SOME INFLUENTIAL CEO'S ARE

CALLING TO RAISE THE THE

RETIREMENT AGE TO 70 AND

PARTIALLY PRIVATIZE HEALTH

INSURANCE AND PROTECT THOSE 55

AND OLDER FROM CUTS AND

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES FOR YOUNGER

WORKERS AND SMALLER BENEFIT

INCREASES FOR ALL.

THEY WOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO

ENROLL IN A TRADITIONAL PROGRAM

OR PRIVATE.

FEDERAL RESERVE SAYS THE

ECONOMY IS GROWING AT A MODEST

CASE.

HOME PRICES RISING ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

SOME ANALYST BELIEVE THE HOUSING

INDUSTRY IS REBOUNDING AND THAT

COULD BE A BRIGHT SPOT.

OVERALL ECONOMISTS EXPECT GROWTH

TO BE THE SAME THIS YEAR AS IT

WAS LAST.

BOEING FACES A CRISIS AS IS

NEW DREAM LINER FLEET IS

GROUNDED IN U.S., JAPAN AND

INDIA.

A MAJOR SET BACK FOR BOEING

WHICH HAS MARKETED THE 787 AS

THE FUEL EFFICIENT JET LINER OF

THE FUTURE.

A SERIES OF PROBLEMS IS

PROMPTING SAFETY INVESTIGATION.

MOST RECENT IS A BATTERY RISK.

IT MADE AN EMERGENCY LANDING

WHEN SOMEONE SMELLED SMOKE IN

THE CABIN.

MAIN BATTERY BELOW THE COCKPIT.

LEVIES ARE IN BAD SHAPE.

PROJECT FOUND THOUSANDS OF

LEVIES ARE IN UNACCEPTABLE

CONDITION.

SOME PROBLEMS INCLUDE WEAK

WALLS, HOUSES BUILT TOO CLOSE

AND DECAYING PIPES AND PUMPING

STATIONS.

CONDITION OF LEVEES CAME INTO

FOCUS AFTER HURRICANE KATRINA IN

2005.

CONGRESS ORDERED TO CATALOG ALL

LEVEES.

REVEREND LOUIS LEON REPLACES

PASTOR LOUIE GIGLIO.

HE PULLED OUT LAST WEEK AFTER A

SERMON HE GAVE AND CRITICISM

OVER GAY RIGHTS.

THE PERSON CHOSEN TO PRAY WOULD

REFLECT THE ADMINISTRATION'S

BELIEFS.

THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH BLESSES

SAME-SEX RELATIONSHIPS AND

ELECTS BISHOPS WHO LIVE

OPENINGLY WITH SAME-SEX

PARTNERS.

A BOMB NEARLY KILLED THIS

MAN'S SON AND THAT NEWS WENT

AROUND THE WORLD.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: AMERICAN-BORN JACK

TITLE WALKED INTO THE COURTROOM

TO HEAR THE JUDGE'S VERDICT.

HE WAS CONVICTED OF MURDERING

TWO PALESTINIANS IS 1997.

TODAY'S DECISION WAS VERY

COMFORTING FOR US.

IT CAME TOO LATE BECAUSE WE

WAITED 15 YEARS TO MAKE SUCH A

DECISION.

THE COURT HELD HIM CRIMINALLY

RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS ACTIONS.

ALSO CONVICTED HIM OF OTHER

VIOLENT CRIMES INCLUDING

ATTEMPTED MURDER OF ORTIZ IN

1998.

HE OPENED A GIFT BASKET

DELIVERED TO HIS FAMILY'S HOME.

HE MIRACULOUSLY SURVIVED.

THE ATTACK WAS DIRECTED TO AMI'S

FAMILY.

HIS MOTHER SAID THE FAMILY MOVED

ON A LONG TIME AGO.

FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, WE

UNDERSTOOD WE HAD TO FORGIVE

HIM.

THE LORD GAVE ME THE LOVE OF GOD

FOR THIS PERSON AND PRAY FOR HIS

SALVATION.

IN THE END IT IS A FINAL

JUSTICE FOR GOD.

I FEEL PEACE.

AMI SAID HE PRAYS FOR TITLE.

NEW

I AM HOPING THIS TIME IN JAIL

HE REALIZES HIS SERIOUS

MISTAKES.

HE NEEDS TO REPENT.

HAVE YOU FORGIVEN HIM?

OH YEAH.

BEFORE FROM THE BEGINNING NO

HATE FOR NOBODY.

WHENEVER I SEE MY SON'S BODY

AND AFFECTS OF HIS INJURIES, I

DIE INSIDE, PERSONALLY BUT WE

BRING IT BEFORE THE LORD AND

KEEP GOING TO THE LORD.

AFTER THE BOMBING, LETTERS

AND SUPPORT FLOODED THE ORTIZ'S

FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT SUPPORTED

US.

I BELIEVE IT WASN'T FOR THE

PRAYERS AND IF PEOPLE WOULDN'T

SUPPORT US, WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE

TO STAND.

WE ARE STANDING HERE BECAUSE OF

THE BODY OF THE LORD.

TITLE LEFT THE COURT AS HE

ENTERED IT IN CHAINS.

HE IS LIKELY TO BE SENTENCED TO

LIFE IN PRISON.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS.

COMING UP, THE SHOCKING

VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IN INDIA.

A SECOND SHOCKING CASE OF

GANG RAP HAS COME OUT OF INDIA.

LAST MEN A WOMAN WAS SEXUALLY

ASSAULTED ON A PUBLIC BUS IN NEW

DELHI.

HER ATTACKERS ARE IN CUSTODY AND

FACE A POSSIBLE DEATH PENALTY.

REFORMS IN A SOCIETY THAT OFTEN

TOLERATES VIOLENCE AGAINST

WOMEN.

I RECENTLY SPOKE WITH K.P.

YOHAN, GOSPEL FOR ASIA.

WE TALKED ABOUT HOW THE MESSAGE

OF JESUS CHRIST IS GIVING THEM

HOPE.

DOCTOR, DESCRIBE THE ABUSES

THEY ENDURE?

RAPE, ABUSE TO YOUNG GIRLS

FOREVER BEING A NORMAL THING

GOING ON AND NEVER PUNISHED.

EVERY YEAR SOME 26,000

UNTOUCHABLES, WOMEN ARE RAPED

AND ABUSED AND LEFT, ONE PERCENT

OF THESE PEOPLE PROSECUTED.

WHY ARE WOMEN VALUED LESS

THAN MEN IN INDIAN SOCIETY?

UNLIKE UNITED STATES WHERE

THE JUDEO CHRISTIAN FAITH IS

WOMEN ARE GIVEN VALUE AND

SIGNIFICANCE.

IN MANY OTHER NATIONS, IT IS NOT

LIKE THAT.

HOW IS IT IN THE CHURCH IN

INDIA?

WHEN THEY ACCEPT CHRIST, IS IT

CHANGING?

ABSOLUTELY, COMMUNITY AFTER

COMMUNITY, NEPAL, INDIA,

BANGLADESH, WHEN PEOPLE COME TO

THE LORD, ALL THE SUDDEN THEY

ARE READING AND HEARING GOD'S

WORD, THEY UNDERSTAND THE WAY

GOD LOOKS UPON WOMEN AND

CHILDREN AND THEIR VALUE AND WE

SEE, I KNOW AT LEAST ONE VILLAGE

PERSONALLY, OUT OF FIVE YEARS

WALKING AMONG THESE PEOPLE,

WOMEN LOOK LIKE WOMEN, MEN TREAT

THEIR WIVES WITH DIGNITY AND

RESPECT AND PRAYER AND LOVE.

IT IS AN AMAZE TRANSFORMATION

BECAUSE OF THE GOSPEL AND LOVE

OF JESUS.

WHAT IS IT LIKE AN INDIAN

WOMAN IN HINDU ALL HER LIFE AND

HEARS THE GOSPEL MESSAGE OF

JESUS AND HEARS SHE DOES HAVE

VALUE AND IS LOVED, HOW DOES SHE

RESPOND DO THAT?

I WOULD SAY A MEETING HERE IN

NEW YORK, A MAN LIVING UNDER A

BRIDGE AND HEARS THE NEWS, HEY

JOE, YOUR FATHER LEFT 10 MILLION

DOLLARS IN YOUR NAME IN THE

BANK.

IT IS YOURS.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THE HAPPINESS,

JOY, EXCITEMENT, REALLY,

EVERYTHING CHANGES.

JESUS LOVES THEM.

HE DIES ON THE CROSS, BURIED AND

ROSE AGAIN, ALIVE WITH THEM

FORGIVING THEM, LOVING THEM.

ALL THE SUDDEN, SOMETHING

HAPPENS ON THE INSIDE.

I DON'T HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS.

THAT LOVE OF CHRIST TRANSFORMS

THESE PEOPLE.

I HAVE SEEN IT 100 TIMES JUST

LIKE YOU FIND IN THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN WHEN JESUS ENCOUNTERED

THESE WOMEN AND THEIR LIVES

TRANSFORMED.

TODAY THAT IS HAPPENING NOT ONLY

IN INDIA, BUT HINDU COMMUNITIES,

TRIBALS.

SO THE GOOD NEWS IS ALWAYS GOOD

NEWS BECAUSE THIS BRINGS HOPE.

THAT IS WHAT THESE PEOPLE NEED.

IT IS GOOD NEWS.

THE DOCTOR PRAISES INDIA'S

GOVERNMENT FOR ITS RESPONSE TO

THE PROTEST.

HE SAYS I AM GRATEFUL TO HOW THE

AGENCIES ARE RESPONDING TO THIS

OUTCRY.

POSITIVE STEPS ARE TAKEN.

YOU CAN LEARN NOR TO GOSPEL'S

ASIA OUTREACH TO WOMEN ON

CBN.COM.

UP NEXT, WHAT IS AN ASSAULT

WEAPON ?

YOU MAY THINK YOU KNOW, AS

YOU'LL SEE MOST PEOPLE DON'T.

ASSAULT WEAPONS HAVE BEEN THE

LATEST DEBATE ON GUN CONTROL.

LEE WEBB JOINS US TO TALK ABOUT

THAT.

WELCOME, LEE.

LEE: THANK YOU, GOOD TO BE

HERE.

YOU SAY THERE IS A

MISCONCEPTION, WHAT IS THAT?

LEE: WHEN I MENTIONED ASSAULT

WEAPONS, HOW DO YOU THINK THEY

OPERATE?

RAPID FIRE.

LEE: TAKE A LOOK.

PULL THE TRIGGER AND IT GOES

OFF.

LEE: YOU ARE ASSUMING IT

FIRES LIKE A MACHINE GUN?

YES.

LEE: SEVERAL FEEL THERE IS NO

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MACHINE GUN

AND ASSAULT WEAPON THE GUNMAN

USED IN SANDY HOOK.

CHRIS MITCHELL TOOK ME TO THE

RANGE TO CLEAR IT UP.

IT LOOKS NO DIFFERENT THAN A

MILITARY-STYLE WEAPON ?

THAT IS CORRECT.

LEE: HOW IS IT DIFFERENT?

DIFFERENCE IS IN THE FACT

THIS WEAPON ONLY SHOOTS IN A

SEMIAUTOMATIC FASHION ONE ROUND

FOR EVERY TRIGGER PULLED.

AS FAST AS YOU PULL THE TRIGGER

IS AS FAST AS YOU SHOOT.

MILITARY CAN SHOOT MORE?

THAT IS CORRECT.

LEE: EXISTING FEDERAL LAW

MAKES IT EXTREMELY DIFFERENT TO

OWN THAT WEAPON.

ONLY THIS VERSION YOU SEE BEING

FIRED IS READILY AVAILABLE AND

FIRES ONLY ONE ROUND EACH TIME

NO DIFFERENT FROM SEMI AUTOMATIC

PISTOL OR THIS .22-CALIBER TARGET

RIFLE.

THE ASSAULT RIFLE HAS LONGER

RANGE THAN THE PISTOL.

YOU CAN SEE THE RANGE FOR THE

AR-15.

AND RIFLE.

KEEP IN MIND THE DEADLIEST

SHOOTING SPREE IN VIRGINIA.

ALL HE HAD WERE TWO

SEMIAUTOMATIC PISTOLS.

DO YOU BELIEVE A BAN WILL

PREVENT ANOTHER NEWTOWN

MASSACRE?

I DON'T BELIEVE IT IS GOING

TO MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE.

LAW ABIDING CITIZENS RESPECT THE

WEAPONS.

ANYONE THAT HAS A DESIRE TO HURT

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO USE WHATEVER

THEY CAN TO GET THEIR HANDS ON

TO DO SO.

BANNING THESE ISN'T GOING TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

LEE, WHY ARE THEY GETTING A

BAD REPUTATION?

LEE: THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE

IN THE APPEARANCE THEY JUST FIRE

DIFFERENTLY.

THE MOVIES AND VIDEO GAMES PLAY

A BIG ROLE.

ANYONE UNFORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE

SHOT BY ANY OF THE WEAPONS THERE

IS NO DIFFERENCE.

LEE WEBB, THANKS FOR BEING

WITH US.

YOU BET.

UP NEXT, A COMMUNITY RALLIES

BEHIND ONE VERY SPECIAL BABY.

IT IS A YEAR OF FIRSTS FOR

ONE BABY FROM WASHINGTON STATE.

NOT ONLY HIS FIRST TOOTH,

HE IS GETTING SOMETHING MORE

IMPORTANT.

NEW THESE ARE PROTO TYPE ARMS,

ONE OF A TIME.

MADE ESPECIALLY FOR JAMISON.

BABY JAMISON WAS BORN WITHOUT

ARMS.

IT WASN'T EASY SINCE THE ARMS

COST $25,000.

THE COMMUNITY RALLIED AND ABLE

TO RAISE THE MONEY TO PAY FOR

HIS MIRACLE ARMS.

A LITTLE BOY WROTE US A

LETTER SAYING HE WANTED TO GIVE

$5 OUT OF HIS PIGGY BANK.

IT IS AMAZING FOR HIM TO PULL

THIS UP TO HIS MOUTH.

BEFORE THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO

HOLD A TOY OR TEETHER.

NOW HE CAN DO IT.

AMAZING, I HAVE NEVER SEEN

PROSTHETICS.

HE IS GOING TO GROW UP WITH THEM

AND BECOME NATURAL.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

THANKS FOR WATCHING, HAVE A

GOOD NIGHT.
