TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" HOW

THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT IS USING

DRONE TECHNOLOGY IN THE FIGHT

AGAINST TERRORISM.

PLUS HAS GUN CONTROL LAWS CROWD

LOUDER, SOME STATES ARE GIVING

GUN OWNER'S MORE RIGHTS.

HOW MISSIONARIES ARE WORKING TO

REACH THE MILLIONS IMPACTED BY

THE CIVIL WAR IN SYRIA.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I AM WENDY

GRIFFITH.

MANY AMERICANS WORRY THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT COULD USE DRONES TO

SPY OR ATTACK ITS OWN CITIZENS.

BY CONTRAST THE ISRAELI DEFENSE

FORCES ARE USING A NEW TYPE OF

DRONE TO SAVE ISRAELI AND

PALESTINIAN LIVES.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS TO STORY FROM

THE DESERT.

REPORTER: IT IS CALLED

SKYLARK, AND BECOMING MORE AND

MORE CRUCIAL TO THE GLOBAL WAR

ON TERROR.

IT IS A GAME CHANGER.

IN TWO SECONDS YOU CAN ACT A

ACCO

ACCORDINGLY

REPORTER: THE 13-POUND

SKYLARK CARRIED IN A BACKPACK TO

THE FIELDS.

THE GOAL IS TO ASSIST GROUND

FORCES FROM THE NEXT CORNER,

NEXT ALLEY

REPORTER: THE UNIT CAN LAUNCH

IT WITHIN EIGHT MINUTES AND

GIVES ISRAELI TROOPS AN

ADVANTAGE IN THE FIELD.

LIKE EVERY GROUND TROOPS AND

USING ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY.

THIS HIGH TECH DRONE IS

LAUNCHED FROM A BUNGEE CORD INTO

THE WIND.

IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG BEFORE IT

IS OUT OF SIGHT.

IT CAN FLY 15,000 FEET IN THE

AIR AT 50 MILES AN HOUR.

NOLEN IS AN OFFICER IN TRAINING.

EACH ONE HAS DIFFERENT JOBS.

BASICALLY HE IS ACTUALLY FLYING

THE PLANE.

HE IS IN CHARGE OF ALL THE

COMMANDS, BASICALLY EVERYTHING A

PLAN DOES UNDER HIS CONTROL.

SOLDIERS DON'T NEED FLIGHT

EXPERIENCE, ONLY POINTS CAMERA

AND SKYLARK RESPONDS RELAYING

REAL TIME CAMERA.

IT CAN SAVE TROOPS FROM AMBUSH,

PREVENT CASUALTIES AND SOLVE

LEGAL QUESTIONS BECAUSE

EVERYTHING IS REPORTED.

LEGAL PROOF

REPORTER: ACCORDING TO THE

SKYLARK'S DEVELOPER AND

MANUFACTURER, UAS IS CURRENTLY

OPERATED BINEY NATO COUNTRIES.

ENGINE STALLS, AIR BAG STALLS

AND UAS DROPS TO THE GROUND.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

CHRIS MITCHELL, SHIFTED TO THE

ARMY BASE NAGAY DESERT.

MORE THAN 150 CHRISTIANS HAVE

BEEN KIDNAPPED IN THE PROVINCE

OF NINYY AND RISE OF MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IS TO BLAME.

THEY DECLARE CHRISTIANS ARE

SECOND CLASS CITIZENS.

CHRISTIANS RARELY REPORT THE

KIDNAPPINGS.

LOCAL OFFICIALS DON'T PROSECUTE

MUSLIMS AND ENCOURAGES MORE

CRIME.

TENSION CONTINUES BETWEEN NORTH

KOREA AND U.S. U.S. OFFICIALS

DON'T BELIEVE KIM JONG UN WON'T

ACT ON HIS THREATS OF WAR.

IT IS BETTER TO BEING CAUTIOUS.

I THINK WE NEED TO BE CAREFUL

AND GIVE KIM JONG UN AN

INCENTIVE TO WALK BACK FROM THE

BRINK.

NORTH KOREA REGIME HAS CUT

OFF COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE

SOUTH AND A STATE OF WAR EXISTS

BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES,

THREATENED THE UNITED STATES AND

TWO MISSILES CAN TRAVEL

CONSIDERABLE RANGE TO THE

EQUILIBRIUM -- EAST COAST.

IT COULD HIT JAPAN AND HOME TO

MANY BASES.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS A LOOK HOW

DIFFERENT STATES ARE GOING

OPPOSITE WAYS WITH THE NEW GUN

CONTROL ACTIONS IN CONNECTICUT

AND MARYLAND.

REPORTER: THEY ARE BEING

CALLED THE STRONGEST AND MOST

COMPREHENSIVE GUN LAWS IN THE

NATION.

IN MARYLAND, A BILL THAT WOULD

FORCE YOU TO SUBMIT FINGERPRINTS

TO BUY A HANDGUN AND LIMIT

MAGAZINES TO 10.

SENDING IT TO MARTIN O'MALLEY

WHO PROPOSED LEGISLATION.

FINGERPRINTING REQUIREMENT WILL

KEEP GUNS AWAY FROM CRIMINALS.

WE RECALL NOT NAIVE.

IT IS A STEP IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION AS FAR AS COMBATTING

PURCHASING OF ILLEGAL GUNS.

REPORTER: GOVERNOR DANNEL

MALL

MALLOY SIGNED INTO LAW, THEY ARE

STILL FEELING THE LOSS OF SANDY

HOOK.

TRAGEDY IN NEWTOWN DEMANDS A

POWERFUL RESPONSE

REPORTER: IT REQUIRES

BACKGROUND CHECKS AND BANS SALE

OR PURCHASE OF MAGAZINES HOLDING

MORE THAN 10 ROUNDS AND

ADDRESSES MENTAL HEALTH AND

SCHOOL SECURITY MEASURES.

IT WILL HELP US HERE IN

CONNECTICUT FEEL SAFER AND MORE

CONFIDENT THAT THIS WON'T HAPPEN

AGAIN.

REPORTER: CRITICS ARGUE IT

DOES NOTHING TO STOP SOMEONE

LIKE ADAM LANZA IS NOT A LAW

ABIDING CITIZEN.

MAKING IT HARDER ON LAW

ABIDING CITIZENS IS NOT THE

ANSWER.

REPORTER: THE MARCH TO EXPAND

GUN RIGHTS HASN'T SLOWED IN THE

WAKE OF THE SANDY HOOK MASSACRE.

MANY PRO-GUN LAWS ARE GAINING

LAWS.

TEN STATES PASSED LAW THAT

WEAKEN GUN RESTRICTIONS,

INCLUDING ARKANSAS, SOUTH

DAKOTA, TENNESSEE AND KENTUCKY.

A RECENT CBS NEWS POLL SHOWS 47%

OF AMERICANS SUPPORT STRICTER

GUN CONTROL LAWS DOWN FROM PEAK

OF 57% JUST AFTER THE SANDY HOOK

SHOOTING.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

FOR MORE ON THE GUN CONTROL

DEBATE, WE TURN TO KEN

KLUKOWSKI.

HE IS THE FROM THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL.

GREAT TO BE WITH YOU.

THE PRESIDENT IS PUSHING FOR

NATIONAL GUN LAWS.

WHAT ARE SOME OF HIS PROPOSALS?

WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS

PUSHING FOR IS POLITICIANS HAVE

INVENTED A TERM CALLED ASSAULT

WEAPON.

I SAY INVENTED IT IS NOT A TYPE

OF FIREARM.

THESE ASSAULT WEAPONS BANS DON'T

COVER ALL ASSAULT RIFLES AND

COVER MANY OTHER COMMONLY USED

FIRE ARMS NOT ANY TYPE OF RIFLE.

THIS VAGUELY DEFINED CLAS CLASS

OF ASSAULT WEAPONS, THEY ARE

TRYING TO BAN THOSE AND HIGHER

CAPACITY MAGAZINES AND COSMETIC

FEATURES THAT MAKES THESE GUNS

SUPPOSEDLY EVIL HAVING A PISTOL

GRIP.

WHETHER THEY HAVE A BAYONET LUG

ON THE END OF THE BARREL.

A BAYONET IS THE KNIFE THAT CAN

GO ON THE GUN.

IT IS THE LUG THAT YOU ATTACH

ONE TO.

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THAT MAKES A

FIREARM EVIL.

THAT WAS ON 1994 ASSAULT WEAPONS

BAN.

THEY ARE BEING RECYCLED AS

PEOPLE TALK ABOUT GUN CONTROL

LEGISLATION.

DO YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT'S

PLAN WILL WORK?

I DON'T.

ONLY PRO VISION IS BACKGROUND

CHECKS DEPENDING HOW IT IS

WORDED.

EVEN ORGANIZATIONS THAT

SUPPORTED THAT STEPPED BACK.

IF YOU HAVE A GRANDFATHER

HANDING DOWN AN ANTIQUE SHOTGUN

FOR CHRISTMAS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T THINK YOU

NEED TO GO THROUGHOUT FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT.

CERTAIN TYPES OF AMMUNITION

MAGAZINES AND AMMUNITION ITSELF,

DIFFERENT TYPES OF FIREARMS,

THEY ARE DRAWING ARBITRARY

DISTINCTIONS, MANY RESTRICTIONS

WOULD BE UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER, YOU ARE

DOLE DEALING, IN THIS CASE, THE

SUPPORT SUPPORTED THE CHICAGO

GUN BAN THE SUPREME COURT STRUCK

DOWN IN 2010 IN CHICAGO.

THAT WAS A COMPLETE BAN ON ANY

OWNERSHIP OF ANY FIREARMS EVEN

IN THE PRIVACY OF YOUR OWN HOME.

IF WE LOOK AT THAT AS THE

PRESIDENT'S BASELINE, BUT THE

SUPREME COURT SAYS HE CAN'T GO

THAT FAR.

HE IS TRYING TO SEE WHAT COULD

MOVE US IN THAT DIRECTION.

OKAY.

KEN, THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

MARCH JOB GAINS COULD SIGNAL A

WEAK ECONOMY.

THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE LOOKING

FOR JOBS FELL TO 63.3% LOWEST IN

30 YEARS.

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE DIPPED 7.7 TO

7.6.

PEOPLE HAVE STOPPED LOOKING FOR

WORK.

THEY BLAME REDUCED PAYCHECKS

FROM HIGHER TAXES FOR THE

DOWNTURN.

EVEN SEW SO ECONOMISTS HOPE IT

KEEPS UP THE SLOW ECONOMY.

HOUSING PRICES ARE UP OVER 10%

IN THE LAST YEAR.

DESPITE QUESTIONS OF THE HEALTH

OF THE JOB MARKET.

SOME BUSINESS LEADERS SAY THE

ECONOMY IS ON THE MEND.

NEW THERE IS A SENSE THAT THINGS

ARE RECOVERING.

WE FEEL THAT, TOO.

DESPITE WHAT SOME OF THE NUMBERS

SAY, I THINK THERE IS A BETTER,

MORE POSITIVE FEELING OUT THERE.

MANY ECONOMISTS PREDICT SLOW

BUT STEADY RECOVERY TO CONTINUE

THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THE YEAR.

COMING UP, WHY LEADERS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY PAUSE TO PRAY,

REFLECT AND CELEBRATE AT THE

WHITE HOUSE TODAY.

ONE WEEK AFTER GOOD FRIDAY,

CHRISTIAN LEADERS FROM ACROSS

THE COUNTRY GATHERED AT THE

WHITE HOUSE TO CELEBRATE THE

JERUSALEM WELCOMED ME TO WHERE

THE PLACE WHERE HEAVEN AND EARTH

MET.
