The police officer here explained just how it all went down. Investigators at the crime scene did produce some very, a very good evidence in this investigation, that our investigators will be able to use and hopefully painting the complete picture as to how and more importantly why this occurred.

A very good morning to you, Melbourne. A shower or two clearing this morning with a top of 21 degrees. It's time for our first sports bulletin of the day with Roz Kelly who joins us from Hobart's Bellerive Oval. Good morning to you. Good morning, Dickie. The weather is still a bit unpredictable here in Hobart. We're in the Chairman's Room. All the ground staff are out there. They're preparing for the third day's play with Australia still in a very commanding position against Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka are 4/87 when play resumes this morning after Michael Clarke declared at 450. Michael Hussey top scoring for the home side.

The consistent Mr Cricket smashing his way to an unbeaten century but his aggression almost brought his downfall on 96.I couldn't believe it when I picked him out and I've seen him take some amazing catches over the years, so I thought there was no chance he was going to drop it. Sometimes in this game it happens to be your day.Ben Hilfenhaus and Peter Siddle both took early wickets. Shane Watson and Nathan Lyon chimed in to have the visitors in all sorts of trouble. The Stars have scraped home against the Hobart Hurricanes in last night's Twenty20 Big Bash. Clint McKay named man of the match, snaring three wickets as the home side reached their target with five balls to spare. No fairytale start for Ricky Ponting. He was gone for eight runs. Tim Paine top scoring with 46 as Malinga cleaned up the Hurricanes' tail.Got him straight through the gate. Stkpwhrin reply, Rob Quiney and --In reply, Rob Quiney and Brad Hodgeed them to back to back wins. The Victory have shared the points with Brisbane. The Wanderers squared the ledger against Sydney FC. Western Sydney getting some revenge from a defeat earlier in the season, scoring early in the first half.We have had great moments so far. There's many to name. This is a special day. It's a great day for our fans and football club and look forward to the third match now.Mark Milligan found the equalliser for Melbourne with both sides sharing the points. Concern for the Roar, Besart Berisha sneeding scans for an injured -- needing scans for an injured shoulder. Daniel Popovic will be hoping to hold his nerves heading into the final round in Coolum. He holds a 2-shot lead over Anthony Brown, sitting at 13 under for the tournament. Popovic fired a third round 3 under par, including six birdies. Peter Senior is also in the hunt. He's just three shots off the pace in third. And finally, Aussie surfer Joel Parkinson says it feels like he's been to hell and back with injuries and disappointment after securing his maiden world surfing title. Parko took out the Pipeline Masters in Hawaii, defeating Josh Kerr in the final. Kerr helped him secure the world title, beating 11-time world champion Kelly Slater. That was Parko's nearest competitor for the world title. Congratulations to Joel. I'm sure there was a very, very big party in Hawaii last night. The cricket resumes early this morning at 10am. That's due to all the rain delays. How do you reckon Parko's head will be feeling?He will be very happy with himself. Great to see an Aussie get up. Great to see Peter Senior doing so well in the golf as well.Better check in now with Emma Freedman. Where are you this morning?Woe are in Penrith this morning because it is nine days till Christmas and we're getting into the festive spirit. They're holdish their Carols by Candlelight tonight. We thought we'd get into the spirit, give you a preview and show you off cute little outfits as well. We'll get in to the weather now.

That's a great way to wake up on your Sunday morning with some of the cute faces in their delightful little outfits. I'm sorry to say, Sarah and Dickie, my childhood is flashing before my very eyes. I used to be like young Taylor here and do some of the old dancing. Yes, you stay in line. Hands behind your back. Keep the smiles up. They're going to have a dance for us later in the morning. The prized Gingerbread Challenge. They're going to kick it off in the next little while.What a bunch of cute little kids.I'd love to see Emma in a reindeer outfit.The Christmas party? The 'Wheels Magazine' Car of the Year.We return to Newtown, Connecticut. How is the community coping? That's next.

This program is not captioned. Good morning, Sydney. You're in for a partly cloudy day today with a top of 30 degrees. Let's return now to Newtown, Connecticut. Details are emerging about the school shooting. Robert Penfold is near the school and joins us now. We're learning much more about the gunman this morning. What can you tell us? Good morning. Indeed. What we're hearing is all the security measures were in place. The doors were locked. There was a camera on the door as well. We're hearing he forced his way in. He went in and shot the glass out and got into the school that way. That immediately alerted people inside. And the sad news we're hearing this morning is the principal who was just coming out of a meeting and raced up there to try to stop him and he killed her straight away. And other members of the staff came out as well. He shot them. And moved towards the class of first-graders and did that almost unspeakable deed. Security measures were in place but not strong enough and not tough enough to stop this guy from doing what he was going to do.We saw pictures of Adam Lanza. The family is there, the entire town, it is pretty unimaginable what they have been going through. How are they coping with it all?What's happened this morning is the news is coming out and more sad news that the bodies have all been taken out of the school and the wirpbts, one by one, who have -- parents, one by one, who have been at home for 12 hours now. The police have went to the homes to confirm the deaths of the children. One of the ministers has been travelling around and he had the job of confirming that information. Here is what he said this morning.The parents are sharing the last moments with their children. The first time the child got up early and told the father how much she loved him. And another one said the day before the child asked what is dying like. Parents are going through a tremendous amount of pain and hurt right now.They sure are. This is obviously an issue we're getting to be talking about all morning. When is the US going to do something about its gun control laws or lack there of? People are saying it's too early to talk about an ice like this but others -- issue like this but others are saying now is the time?This conversation goes on every time. Every time I'm standing here at one of these schools over and over again, people are asking when will they toughen up gun laws and stop people getting hold of these weapons? Particularly people who are mentally disturbed. Guns in their houses. How does it happen? It goes on. Two or three days later everybody goes back to work and gets back to normal. Nothing happens. It's the fact is the gun lobby here is so powerful, particularly has so much power over the Republican Party, that no politician is prepared to go there to start pulling away the guns, as Australia and Britain has done, after one of these dreadful incidents has happened. Not only yesterday but also this morning the President said meaningful action must take place. That is a bit of a break. That seems something might happen. It will be difficult for him. Over the time people have been disappointed with him that he hasn't been able to push for any tougher gun laws. Michael Bloomberg said not meaningful, immediately action has to take place. It's a conversation. It will go on. We'll wait and see if anything happens. I would say don't expect anything really to happen too soon, if at all.Thank you very much for that update. We will have much, much more on this story coming up. These are gun homicides in the US compared to other developed countries. We're going to speak to experts on both sides of the Pacific to fine out why the US has it so wrong on gun control? It is easier to access guns in America than mental health care. We're going to talk about why they could learn more from us in terms of gun control. Appalling is what it is. You would hope President Obama may be the start of the second term, if it's ever going to happen.He has lots of big issues. The fiscal cliff. Huge issues he's faiszing. This is a hot -- facing. This is a hot button issue.He's the father of two young kids. It's a major issue and you'll be covering it very thoroughly.On a lighter note, you're going to be covering the wheels magazine rr car of the year.

You're watching Weekend Today. It is time for news now with Wendy Kingston. Newtown in Connecticut is reeling this morning. Families in the small community last night gathered to remember the victims shot, most of whom were young children.One of the dads shared how the child got up early and told the father how much she loved him. Another one said the day before the child asked them what is dying like?More details have emerged about the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza. Police have now confirmed he forced his way into that school after earlier shooting dead his mother at a separate location. Fiji is bracing for a violent category four cyclone that's threatening to thrash the island nation as early as Tuesday. Let's cross live to Michael Best now. Whou are the residents preparing there? -- how are the residents preparing there? They're being told to stock up on three days worth of supplies. Tropical Psycholon Evan was initially expected to hit Fiji this afternoon. The threat map has been revised slightly. It's moved more to the north and west and looks like possibly affecting Fiji over tomorrow afternoon and Tuesday morning. Residents are being told not to take any chances. If you're in low-lying areas, move to higher ground. Here are how some of the Fijians are coping.Following it pretty closely, all the maps and everything. What else can we do. Stock up. Sit nicely.We're getting ready for the cyclone.We always expect the worse.There are still people flying into Fiji for holidays. Some people here in the resort areas are thinking of leaving. It comes after a few days Tropicalen Cyclone Evan killed three people. A very serious system that's potentially bearing down on Fiji.Thank you for the update. If you need to contact your family and have friends overseas, you can call the Department of Foreign Affairs. Millions of dollars in aid will now be sent to Sri Lanka as part of the Federal Government's plan to curb the increasing flow of asylum seekers to Australia. Bob Carr made that announcement on a 3-day visit to Sri Lanka. He meet with local leaders to discuss the best ways to tackle people smugglers and pledged almost $35 million to boost education opportunities and stimulate economic growth. Less than 10 days before Christmas, a giant free has been lit in Bethlehem. The birthplace of Jesus, according to Christian tradition. Hundreds of people turned out for the annual ceremony which kicks off the Christmas season for the region. Featuring green lights and a bright red star, the tree is positioned in front of the town's Nativity Church. Locals treated to a special fireworks display. So close to Christmas. Time for all the sport now. Good morning, Roz Kelly. Good morning. Australia has torn apart Sri Lanka's top order to have the visitors in all sorts of trouble heading into the third day's play here in Hobart. Sri Lanka are 4/87 after Michael Clarke declared at 450. An unbeaten century from Mike Hussey doing all the damage. The 37-year-old also brushing aside any plans of retirement in the near future.Well, I'm still enjoying it. While I feel I contribute to the team, I'd love, I'm really enjoying every opportunity I get at the moment. It's good fun.The Melbourne Stars have moved to equal first on the Big Bash table. They beat the Hurricanes by five wickets. The Melbourne Victory have maintained their unbeaten record at home, holding on for a 1-1 draw with Brisbane. Sydney FC are entrenched at the bottom of the table, losing 2-0 against Western Sydney. Manchester United will spend Christmas Day on top of the Premier League ladder after they beat Sunderland 3-1 at Old Trafford this morning. Aston Villa stunning Liverpool by the same scoreline to have them five points adrift of Everton. Manchester City winning 3- 1 in their clash against Newcastle. Rugby league has triumphed over rugby union 3-1 in the Fight for Life boxing charity event in Auckland. Greg Bird, Paul Gallen and Manu Vatuvei all won their bouts. Willie Mason and Troy Flavell fought out an entertaining draw.We said we were going to get out and bang. I'm happy with a draw. It's all good.

In the women's fight, Kiwi Daniella Smith was too good for Lauryn Eagle. If you are in Hobart and planning to come to the cricket, play will begin early today. That's at 10am after the lengthy rain delays yesterday. It was raining earlier but the sun is coming out now and the ground staff are busy at work getting the pitch prepared for play. I'm looking forward to Emma's report to see what will happen. See you in half an hour. Let's check in with Emma Freedman for the Sunday weather now.

Sarah and Dickie getting excited about Christmas. And the Penrith Carols by Candlelight. One of the most prized competitions in this part of Sydney is the Gingerbread House Making Competition. We have six businesses that have donated a significant amount of money. As a result, they're getting to take part in this esteemed competition this morning. They've already submitted their designs. This morning is the time to construct those houses. Are you ready to get going? Three, two, one! We'll see how you progress straight after we take a look at the weather and check out what's happening with your skies today.

An extensive area of cloud with embedded thunderstorms extends from the Pilbara region down to north- eastern NSW. Bright thunderstorm cloud is evident over the Kimberley, Northern Territory and parts of western Queensland as well. An onshore flow is producing areas of low cloud along the coast of South Australia and Victoria. Another cold 41 moves on to Tasmania from the west. A pretty standard modern house here going very, very well, including a bit of a sprinkled road. We'll move over here to the One Stop Cake Decoration Shop. They have the chimney going here. It will take a bit of time to construct. That's going to be a delightful shopping centre at Westfield. A model display home. And we have Multi Security. Look at these - they're constructed by icing earlier this morning. That's a baby Jesus for you this morning. And the final one, because the carols are at the Paceway this evening, we have the trots here. Two hours to complete the houses and we'll award the trophy to the winner later in the program. You could say that was sacrilicious. Wow!I promise I won't make any bad jokes. New footage of Don Bradman playing cricket in South America. One adventurous little dog coming up.

Good morning, again. First, how the US school shooting unfolded online and how gun control is become aghot debate in social media forums? This morning the massacre in Newtown Connecticut is sparking a passion dialogue across the country.It's horrible such evil exists. But that's the nature of the world we live in, I guess.While Americans clutched each other at candlelight vigils overnight, many celebrities took to social media to express their condolences.

In the wake of this tragedy, the American conversation turned to gun control.How many more kids have to die before you say, "We want less guns, not more?"Mark Kelly, whose own life, Gabrielle Giffords, was critically injured in a mass shooting nearly two years ago. He quoted:

As a country, we have been through this too many times. These neighbourhoods, they're our neighbourhoods, and these children are our children.We're going to look at the gun control debate in the next 15 minutes. Now a bit of light relief after all of that and first up in most-clicked, this dog takes on a leafy mountain that's a bit too large for him.

He's stuck.

There he is. Mick Jagger on the lessons he's learnt after 50 years in rock'n'roll.Hi, sealtal. Make sure you're -- Seattle. Make sure you're in. You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having moves like Jagger. A good way to keep yourself entertained, to sign every autograph. When you start out playing rock'n'roll so you could have sex and do drugs but you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock'n'roll.Very funny indeed.What does he mean by that? I don't know. We have a fantastic interview with The Stones coming up in our final hour. A bit of tension between Mick and Keith. You have to see it.Which of these will be named 'Wheels Magazine' Car of the Year?

Good morning, again. It's the longest-running car award in the world. With me is Stephen Corby. This is a bit controversial this year. Two winners?That's right. We're sharing the award this year. Subaru and Toyota. Pretty much the same car.Explain it a little more? Toyota decided to build a car with Subaru. Subaru is a much smaller company but it's like Apple and Samsung building a phone together and selling them with different brands.You couldn't split them? Why didn't you go with the red one? I prefer blue. $29,990. It's a cheap sports car. You have Porsche- style driving fun for a third of the price. A Subaru, about $30,000, but the same kit. You get more equipment in this one, navigation and extra equipment.Same car. If you want to spend a bit more, you get a bit more. That's pretty interesting. Much discussion about the fact you've had dual winners? Other companies have given thuward to one or the other but the differences are so small, there's literally a slice tweak to the front suspension but they're the same car.They're both very reasonably priced.Incredibly. Compared to any other kind of sports car. For a sports car to be available at that price is stunning. This little fella here is the runner-up, how much?$13,990. It is amazing. It has a radar technology system that will stop you having an accident. Little cameras there can see a car in front of you. Most accidents happen in traffic at those low speeds. It's a very clever system, especially at that price.Even the cheap inexpensive cars are having lots of stuff in them?The technology trickles down in all cars. The Germans build a good car. It's solidly built. An excellent quality car.This beast was one of your runners-up?The Holden. It's a plug-in hybrid. It has a petrol engine as well. You can do both. A man has driven 16,000 kilometres on one tank of fuel. We're very impressed with it. It costs $60,000 in Australia. That's the only thing that let it down.Good job, Stephen. Well done. Thank you very much. Two winners. You will not believe how easy it is to buy a gun in America. Denham Hitchcock went shopping and shooting. That story quite phenomenal. But up next, the Hollywood headlines with Michele Mahone. What's happening this morning?Lindsay Lohan finally got around to saying thank you for the free money. Stay tuned.

The Rolling Stones are back together for a couple of pretty big gigs. And they have just given their first television interview since the band turned stkpwifplt -- 50. For 2.5 hours, he shimmies laps around the stage, as baby boomers and their kids get a contact high from all this vinage uncut rock'n'roll. How do you do it? I was watching. How do you do it? After that, you have a room full of people come over and go crazy and drink all your wine.He's a funny one. We'll have more of that interview with Mick Jagger and the rest later in the show. Can't wait for that.Brilliant. Hollywood headlines now with Michele Mahone. Lindsay Lohan has offered an excuse and an overdue thank you to Charlie Sheen. What's it all about?He gave her $100,000 to deal with her tax problems, with the IRS. She didn't even say thank you. He called her out saying she's ungrateful. She said, "I broke my cell phone and lost all my phone numbers. Then I got all kinds of busy and distracted." That is time consuming. So she sent him a thank you letter and a bouquet of flowers. I would have said I'm a hooker but I'm wrong.-- sent him a hooker but I'm wrong. Very good. Russell Crowe has said publicly he's coming back home for Christmas to get the family back together.Yes. He is estranged from his wife, but he Tweeted, "As soon as I can get back home, my top priority is getting my family back together." He's in New York and he was seen snuggling up to a foodie chick and the ex-wife of Billy Joel. He said those rumours are false and cruel and he wants to get home and get things sorted. I hope he can. They were cute together.Absolutely. Seal has bought himself a pretty sweet bachelor pad. What are the details there?It's bling. 5,500 square feet. $6 million. Three storeys, 5.5 bathrooms, five bedrooms, floor to ceiling windows and two separate kitchens. "Make me breakfast in the kitchen on the left, not the right. The stove is broken." Thank you for all that. Seal heading back to Australia in February for the next series of 'The Voice'.Pretty exciting, alongside Ricky Martin.Can't wait. Top stories now.He was not voluntarily let into the school at all. He forced his way into the school.New details emerge about the man behind the second worst school shooting in US history. And how the tragedy unfolded. Another gunman goes on a rampage in Alabama, three more people are wounded. When will the US learn from Australia and inaccount common sense gun laws? Also ahead - Fiji and thousands of Australians on holiday there brace for the impact of Cyclone Evan. Australia in control - Mike Hussey in a fast bowling -- and a fast bowling onslaught leave Sri Lanka teetering. Newly unfirthed footage shows our greatest cricketer on tour and on honeymoon in North America. It is Sunday, December 16, 2012.We have a huge couple of hours coming up. Good morning. We're learning more details about just how 20-year-old Adam Lanza carried out one of the worst shooting massacres in America's history. 26 people, including 20 children, were gunned down when the masked killer stormed the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Earlier he shot dead his mother. Let's cross live to Robert Penfold now. The investigation now well under way. What been uncovered so far?Yeah, good morning. Yes, the shooting took place just across the bushland there. We are hearing more details about what happened. The weapons themselves were, they were taken. He took those from his own mother. She was an avid gun collector. He took those weapons. He killed her and came to the school here. There was a security door there but he shot his way through that. And the noise of that brought the principal and teachers to the front door. He turned the gun on them. Killed them. And moved on to even do worse than and move into the class of first graders. Speaking this morning with a police officer and he explained what he believes happened there yesterday morning.Our investigators at the crime scene did produce some very, a very good evidence in this investigation. Our investigators will be able to use that. And hopefully in painting the complete picture as to how and more importantly why this occurred? It's believed he was not voluntarily let into the school at all. He forced his way into the school.What about the families? You can't even begin to imagine what they're going through at the moment.Yes. It sex trordinary. We have not only the -- it is extraordinary. We have not only the families here, but we have people looking after them.Parents are really going through a tremendous amount of pain and hurt right now, trying to deal with their own personal loss but what happened to their child in the last moments of their life. It's settling in now. The hurt and the anguish and the anger and then the reality this bigpert of their life is gone from them.We are expecting this public outcry over the country's gun laws?Yeah. That goes on here every time. And when will something be done? The President said something meaningful has to happen. Meaningful action should be taken. What does that mean again? There is always that outcry and nothing yet has been done so far. The gun lob -- lobby is so powerful. In Alabama a man got into a hospital and was seen walking around with weapons. The police were called. They shot him but not before he shot two other people in the hospital, including the police officer. Those three people were wounded. They will survive but the gunman himself is dead. An example of what goes on here in the US. People have weapons and people are saying something really has to be done. The laws have to be changed. But you shouldn't hold your breath. Thank you for that. We'll return home now. A number of police officers in Melbourne are being praised for their quick thinking after rescue agman who was trapped ntd a car. -- rescuing a man who was trapped under a car. The 44- year-old was stuck under the BMW. When police arrived, they had to physically lift the car off him. The members did a very good job. They have injured themselves in trying to save this man.Police are still trying to work out exactly how the accident happened. It's believed the man had been travelling in the car with a female driefbger. Allison Baden-Clay came face to face with her husband's mistress at a Brisbane gym just weeks after she found out about their affair. Court documents filed as part of Gerard Baden-Clay's failed bail application revealed how the chance encounter had left both women lost for words. Mr Baden-Clayologly had three affairs during their troubled marriage. His defence barrister told the court the mother of three may have taken her own life with the autopsy revealing high levels of her anti- depressants medication. Families are being warned of a greater risk of blackouts during extreme heats because of airconditioners going. An extra 750,000 airconditioners have bip installed in just the past year and a half alone. There is a warning that if millions were switched on simultaneously, it could cause mass power outages. One man in China who is taking doomsday preparations to new levels, building Noah's Ark survival capsules. The 45-year-old has spent more than a year and a small fortune designing the vessels which are fully equipped with oxygen tanks, batteries and food supplies. The lively entrepreneur is convinced the pods will keep millions around the world safe and hopes they'll be mass produced in years to come if we all make it through the Mayan myth this Friday. Let's hope it's a whole waste of time. Now with Roz Kelly again. Good morning. Fingers crossed to that. The covers are still on here at Bellerive. The sun is trying to fight its way through. Play will resume early today. That is at 10am to make up for lost time. Sri Lanka certainly on the back foot. Australia ripped through their top order to have the tourists at 4/87 after Michael Clarke declared on 5/450. The skipper adding just four runs to his first day total. Mike Hussey proved unstoppable. He smashed his way to an unbeaten 115. He was very lucky to bring up his century, getting some massive luck on a nervous 96.I couldn't believe it when I picked him out and I've seen Angelo take amazing catches over the years. I thought there was no chance he was going to drop it. Sometimes it happens to be your day in this game. Hilfenhaus and Siddle claim early wickets in their return from being rested. Shane Watson and Nathan Lyon sharing in the spoils. The Melbourne Stars have made it back to back wins in the Twenty20 Big Bash.

Ricky Ponting could only manage eight runs in his first match for the Hurricanes. Tim Paine top scoring with 46. Malinga once again proved damaging with the ball. A 57-run partnership to Rob Quiney and Brad Hodge getting the Stars home. In the A-League, there was no win for Ange Postecoglou, after his former team, Brisbane. The Victory and the Roar playing out a 1-1 draw. The Wanderers won 2-2. Western Sydney getting revenge from an earlier defeat in the season, scoring early in the first half, before Michael Beauchamp put the result beyond doubt in the 77th minute.We've had great moments so far. There's many to name. This is a special day. We squared the ledger now. It's a great day for our fans and football club.Fresh from Hong Kong with the Socceroos, Mark Milligan found the equalliser for Melbourne. The Roar could be without Besart Berisha, though. He injured his shoulder in the second half. He will undergo scans when the teams arrive back home in Brisbane. In golf, Daniel Popovic says he can hold his nerve and hold off the competition to secure the Australian PGA Championship title at Coolum. The 26-year-old sits at 13 under and holds a 2-shot lead over fellow Victorian Anthony Brown heading in to today's final round. Last weekend Australian Open winner Peter Senior is in the mix. He is three strokes off the pace in third. And no doubt the champagne is still flowing for Aussie surfer Joel Parkinson after landing two of surfing's most prestigious trophies in one day. The Queenslander defeated Josh Kerr in the final of the Pipeline Masters in Hawaii. It was Kerr who helped Parkinson secure his first-ever world title. Knocking off 11-time champion Kelly Slater in the semis. That's after Joel was runner-up in the world title race four times in his career. I'm sure the party's going to continue for a long time. In the next 10 minutes, Michael Slater will join us to dissect all the play here heading in to day three and give his expert opinion. Very good indeed. Thank you for that. Details are sketchy but we hear there was a party in Hawaii. Coming up - never before seen footage of our greatsh cricketer, Sir Donald Bradman, has been unearthed. The story behind his vision in 10 minutes. Let's check in now with Emma Freedman who is at Penrith with the weather. What's happening? Good morning. We have some of our favourite Christmas characters who have come and joined us by the giant Christmas tree here in Penrith. They do have their carols by candlelight. Santa is coming to entertain all the kids and his delightful wife is here as well, Mrs Clause. And we have a big bucket of popcorn. And all the presents. We'll tell you more about the gifts straight after we look at the weather.

If you come down to Penrith this morning and pay us a visit, we would love you to bring a gift to donate to charity. We've just had these handed to my good self. These are vouchers from Hoyt's. Come and donate a present because we'll be giving these away to whoever puts presents under here. We have more exciting Christmas treats for you coming up. Returning now to the school tragedy in Connecticut. This is just the latest in what seems like a never-ending series of shootings across America. So much of the problem is gun control and how easy it is to purchase a firearm. This is our US correspondent, Denham Hitchcock, going gun shopping and shooting. Have a look.

Six people are dead, including a 9- year-old girl.I like guns. Why wouldn't I want to carry?From my cold dead hands.To understand America's gun crime, you first have to understand the gun culture. The right to keep and bear arms is in the constitution. It means at regular sports stars that sell tennis racquets, fishing rods, running shoes a wall like this is displaying just another product. I'd like to buy a gun. In California, if you're a residents, all you need to do is choose your weapon, produce a driver's licence, hand over the cash. The government has 10 days to check you out, then just pick it U. -- it up. Access to guns and the willingness to use them has left bloody footprints through the pages of American history. We went to a gun show here not long after the Tucson shooting and business is thriving. Racks, walls and cables of guns. The crowd is everyone from cowboys to children. Every type of handgun. Shotguns and assault rifles. And in Arizona, there's a gun show every month.It's the first thing I'd go for.A handgun?For sure.What if the government said, "We're going to take your guns off you?I'd give it a go.Bring your own or choose from a deadly selection at the shooting range. The more shoot thrgz are, the more weapons are sold for self-defence. The one thing that doesn't change is the end result.We lose 25,000 Americans to guns every year in this country.Denham filmed that story last year after the Tucson shooting and gun laws are so lax in America, nothing has changed since. They probably could learn a lot from our strict gun policy. Joining us from Chicago is CEO of the National Gun Victims Action Council in America, Elliot Fineman, whose own son was killed by a firearm. And Andrew Leigh who wrote the leading analysis on Australia's gun buyback program following the Port Arthur massacre. Welcome to you both. I might start with you, Elliot, you have lost your own son to guns. The question we're all asking here is how much longer can Americans hide behind that constitutional right to bear arms before real action is finally taken?Well, the difficulty is that you have a vocal rabid minority led by the leadership of the NRA that pushes for these extreme laws and blocks any sensible gun law that could be passed. The great majority of Americans want, over 100 million polls show, would want sane gun laws, as do many members of the NRA. But you- a corrupt leadership of the NRA whose only interest is mabsmising the sales of guns and -- maximising the sales of guns and they have compettive advantage against their main rival, the Bridey Organisation, that the Brady Group simply can't overcome the critical mass of the National Rifle Association. What's needed are new strategies and that's what our organisation has been introducing. Before we get in to what sort of strategies that your organisation is looking at, you've got to look at these stats. You say a minority of people are really after looser gun controls but America has the highest rate of gun ownership in the world. 270 million guns, that's around one gun for every person. Compare that to Australia's three million guns. Then, it is no coincidence gun deaths in the States are 300 times higher than here in Australia. 9,000 compared to 30 in Australia. That can't bow a coincidence. A ban on guns is really what's needed, isn't it? Well, there's no question that the gun laws here are based on maximising sales rather than public safety, such as they are in Australia, search as they are in England, such as they are in most developed countries. The figure you give that's quoted one gun per person is a bit misleading. The actual breakdown is that the typical gun owner owns five or six guns. So you have about 35 million families or households that own guns and you have three or four times that amounts of households that do not have guns. Guns are declining in terms of demand. There are less hunters coming onboard. The young people by and large are not interested in guns. We don't even have a gun culture, even though that's a short hand way of describing what's here. We have a minority of vocal, bestowed, violent, if you will, aggressive minority that pushes all of this. And we simply have to change that. We have to overcome their momentum at this point.Aggressive indeed. I kaen believe there have already been suggestions perhaps this massacre could have been avoided if the teachers had been armed. Let's bring in Andrew now in Canberra. Andrew, Australia certainly had its fair share of mass shootings but the Port arlgter massacre was a huge turning -- Arthur massacre was a huge turning point?Yes. We had an average, a mass shooting every year leading up to Port Arthur. Since then, we haven't had a single one. That could just be a coincidence but the odds of that are less than one in 100. What happened was when we had a gun buyback and restricted gun ownership laws, we saw substantial drop in mass shootings. Mass shootings are a very small share of gun deaths. What we found was that the lives saifrbged as a result of John Howard's gun buy -- saved as a result of John Howard's gun buyback were largely reduced in gun suicides and gun homicides which were mostly domestic violence. If there isn't a gun in a home, when tempers fray, people are less likely to turn to the most lethal killing machine available.Do you think a buyback scheme would work in America?The challenge is you have to do something that's across the bore. The US has some experience with single cities that imp. All gun buybacks. They don't work very well because guns flow back in across the border. We do know what we did in Australia saved lives and a lot of them. Christine and I estimate something around the order of 200 lives a year were saved as a result of that 1997, 1998 gun buyback. Incredibly valuable public policy in making Australia safer. Before the buyback, around 15% of Australian households had guns. Afterwards, less than 10%. And that just meant there are fewer lethal weapons available. In the US, about a third of all households have guns. It's much easier for a troubled kid to get his hands on a lethal weapon.Andrew, what do you have to say about some suggestions perhaps teachers should be armed and that if they had been armed, this type of massacre could have been avoided?The simple answer is look at the statistics. We have a range of good studies here and so we don't have to go off theory or faith. We can just go off numbers. Countries or places with small guns tend to -- more guns tend to have a higher number of gun deaths. You'd like to think a gun could be used by good guys to defend against bad guys. That's not how the world works. I suspect most people didn't notice but in China there was a man who went into a school with a knife on Friday. Injuring, a stabbing frenzy, over 20 people students stabbed. No-one died. After the gun buyback, Australia saw mass stabings but we never again saw those mass shootings, Strathfield, Port Arthur, which were so common in the decade leading up to John Howard's gun buyback.Why any household would need an assault rifle which could fire off a hundred rounds in just a few minutes, who can explain that. We saw yesterday a clearly distraught President Barack Obama. He said in his speech that meaningful action is needed but despite the tears, we're not really likely to see this, are we?No. We're not likely to see it. If we do see it, it will be the wrong kind of meaningful action. I would like to comment for a moment about your question to Andrew regarding could the teachers armed have prevented this? The answer is a resounding no. It's the same reason that the fallacious belief that people need to carry guns for self-defence is a fiction. The reality is the element of surprise always trumps the gun carrier. That's why policemen in the US who carry guns all the time are ambushed and shot. 40% of all policemen that are killed by guns are killed during an ambush or a surprise attack. So there's not a prayer that the armed teachers could have done a thing. A mass killer bursts in shooting guns, shooting bullets as they burst in with two guns at a time. The idea an armed teacher could have done a single thing about that is ludicrous. So that's really an important thing and it's also equally ludicrous that a non- citizen walking around in public with a gun could do any better. -- an armed citizen walking around in public with a gun could do any better. This whole meme of self- defence is simply a fantasy.Yep. They say 34 people are dying every day that these gun laws aren't actually addressed in America. Thank you very much for joining us this morning. Big questions to be asked.Thank you.Over to you, Richard. An important conversation to have. Moving on. A forgotten 13- minute documentary featuring Australia's most famous cricketer, Sir Donald Bradman, has been unearthed after 80 years. Joining us now is Simon Smith. Where and when was this vision shot?Richard, the film was shot in Toronto in 1932. And the film survives thanks to a Roman Catholic priest who had the film in his barn for about 25 years. And eventually the film was picked up by the Canadian Film Archives. The gave us a copy and we did preservation work on it. And we have recently put it on our YouTube channel to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Bradman honeymoon.An Australian cricket tour of Canada. I hadn't heard about it before. Who did they play? It was privately organised tour. It was organised by a former Australian test spinner. There were two deal-breakers. The first one was the major tour sponsor said that they're not going ahead with the tour unless Bradman is on it because he was so well known across the Commonwealth. Bradman himself said that he's not going to go on it unless he can take his wife. He was recently married the month before. It was a great opportunity for he and Lady Bradman to see North America.They got to see the Don play and he got a free honeymoon. How did he play? Fantastically. He made nearly 3,800 runs across 51 matches which was an average of 102. What's interesting is that none of these statistics are counted in his first-class career. It's sort of a film from a lost tour, if you like.It looks fascinating. Where can we see this? It's on our YouTube channel. If people want to go to the National Film and Sound Arkiefrbs webpage, you'll find a link there and we're happy for people to have a look at it.Fascinating. The Don as we've never seen him before, playing cricket in Canada. Thank you for your time this morning.Thank you. Extraordinary pictures. We'll have more cricket coming up. We'll speak to Michael Slater after the news, sport and weather.We're going to take you on a trip back through the weekend entertainment.

Busy show.Busy show. It is almost bang on 8:30. Better get the news now.Police in the small community of Newtown, Connecticut, are still piecing together the motive behind yer's horrific school massacre which claimed the lives of 26 people. 20 of them children. The victims have been formally identified. They were all shot by semiautomatic gunfire. The aunt of 20-year-old killer Adam Lanza spoke of how she found out about the tragedy.I called my husband and said, "Have you heard the news?" I said, "You need to go listen to it." I asked him what he knew and he had heard about it but didn't know names.She described her nephew as a smart boy who was home schooled by his mother who Lanza shot dead before opening fire at Sandy Hook Elementary. Residents and tourists in Fiji have been given more time to prepare with forecasters saying Cyclone Evan isn't expected to make landfall by Tuesday. It was feared the island nation could have been hit as early as tonight.If it does hit, after we leave, that would be good.We've been stressing about it and the best idea was to come and see what happens and hopefully we get out alright.Supplies are now being shipped in to Samoa. The PM has raised concerns about the emotional toll the sexual harassment claims and media attention has had on Peter Slipper. Ms Gillard told Fairfax Mr Slipper made grievers errors sending text messages to the staffer and he is under strain. The PM laid blame on the saga squarely at the feet of Tony Abbott. She condemned the Opposition for a turbulent year in Federal politics that included the AWU slush fund fiasco and the Craig Thomson credit card scandal. There have been more violent scenes in Egypt as the country begins voting on a referendum to decide a new constitution. Pro-government and opposition protesters clashed in the country's second largest city with the proposed changes continuing to divide locals there. 6,000 tankers and 120,000 soldiers are on standby if that violence escalates any further. The 2-day vote wraps up next weekend. And something a bit different for you if you love a bit of bacon on your Sunday morning. A creative and slightly creepy company in the US has developed a bacon centred shaving -- scented shaving cream. It will leave men smelling good enough to eat. They are behind other quirky bacon products like bacon lip balm and bacon soda.I don't think many blokes would like to smell like bacon all the time. You were just in to it.You had me for a minute.You do snell good, though.Hmmm.Come in, Roz. Hello! I love my bacon. I thought I smelt something, a bit of bacon. We're talking about man perfume.A sprinkle of all sorts of things. Let's talk about cricket instead of your scent. We'll talk from over here. Sri Lanka, 4/87 in reply to Australia's declaration. Aggressive leadership from Michael Clarke given this weather?It was. We're expecter Australia to bat untle they were all out. I thought a declaration might have come at 550 if Australia had got there. Michael Clarke was very aggressive and caught us all unawares and they're doing a great job. I didn't think the pitch played up as much as day one. The Australian bowlers bowled with good pressure. It's very hard for Sri Lanka to come from their conditions to Australian conditions. So much so they've never won a test match here.Do you think Michael claek will enforce the follow-on? It all comes down to how easy today is for them. Obviously we have inclement weather at this stage. If it clears, and we get away on time at 10 o'clock. If the six wickets come relatively easy, I think Michael Clarke will be aggressive again. It will do all the players the world of good having a rest. If it's a tough day and takes them a long time to get these wickets and Sri Lanka, once they avoid the follow-on, Australia will bat again. What fountain of youth is Mike Hussey drinking from. At his age, he is in almost the best form of his career?I'm calling him Benjamin Button. As he gets older, he gets younger. He has an energy at 37 I don't think I've ever seen before. He has the eyes in good order as well. He gets better and better. He's consistants. He's interesting when you talk to him because he says he only plays each game as it comes and he says he thinks it will be his last year. That's the best way to look at it when you're that age. If he falls into a form slump, it could bea quick thing he leaves the game. He will be playing in the Ashes series and beyond if he wants to. Tendulkar is 40 in April of next year. And Benjamin Butp keeps going on. I love there energy and what he brings to the team. Obviously the performance is the number one factor and he keeps churning it out. What about Peter Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus returning from a rest. Have you noticed a big difference in their attack?Yes and no. I think it was frustrating for them to miss out on the final test match against South Africa. We were calling it the grand final. But they would have really longed to play that test march. Peter Siddle has been told he's a long form bowler and doesn't get a look in for the one-dayers and Twenty20s and then rotated out of a test match. I don't know if I agree with it. Once they got into their stride, I thought they bowled very well yesterday. Now you have Watson bowling again. The balance is there. This is a good bowling attack. The only guy who needs to try and find a real accuracy is Starc at the moment. He's 22. He's trying to find the experience to give him a bit more clout and knowledge out there. But he's going along nicely. He's a wicket-taker.Thank you for your time. Your bacon and egg cologne is making me hungry.I'll be back.He's a new age guy, our Slats.Isn't he just? Better check in with Emma Freedman for all the weather details.Good morning. There's quite a talented bunch of dancers here in Penrith who are going to be performing at the Penrith carols tonight at the Paceway. They're going to perform for us straight after we take a look at your weather. Very Christmasy down here this morning.

These guys are the Vintage FM dancers. They do a bit of rock'n'roll and swing dancing, getting into the festive season with their santsa hats this morning.

My favourite one this morning is definitely Little Miss Pudding. Isn't that the cutest and funniest thing you have ever seen? Does it come in a medium? I'd love to see you in that?Can could try and squeeze in.That is adorable. See you in half an hour.She's emerged as the hero of the Connecticut school shooting.

Well, the world is still coming to grips with the shooting death of 28 people in an elementary school in the US. If it wane for the actions of quick-thinking heroes, the toll could have been so much higher. Diane Sawyer met one of the teachers whose classroom was right in the line of fire. It was 9 throifbgclk in the morning when -- 9 o'clock in the morning when the 29-year-old teacher began her class. Right in the middle of that was when it started.When did you hear it?In the front classroom.Did you know it was shooting?Immediately. It sounded like the type of gun that shoots over and over and over again. I knew immediately something was very wrong. And I got up and closed our door. It wasn't locked. I told all of our students we had to get in the bathroom. I knew we had to be hidden.How many children?I have 16 students.15 frightened first graders. One cramped place to hide. So you got them in the bathroom.. It's very small. I put some on top of the toilet. One of my students on top of the toy. All You were lying on top of each other?Yes. We were all very, very close.Did they cry?No. I'd say, "It's OK. Show me your smile. One of my students was like, "I know karate. I'll lead the way out." So obviously I said we really need to stay here right now. We need to be calm and still and qui. Did you tell them to be quiet?Oh, yeah. I told them to be quiet and we had to be absolutely quiet because if he did come in and hear us and start shooting the door. I said that we had to be absolutely quiet. "There are bad guys out there and we need to wait for the good guys." I'm their protector. The one who is always there to help them. Usually with schoolwork but you have to listen to them say things like, "I just want to go home and have Christmas." And I said, "We have to think positive." They said to you, "We want to go home for Christmas?"Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yep. "I want to hug my mum." Things like that. It was heartbreaking. You're hearing - I've never been a part of anything like this traumatic before, so I'm hearing the gunfire in the hallway and thinking, "Why isn't he coming in here?" Then I'm thinking, as a 6-year-old, 7-year-old, what are your thoughts on this? I'm thinking I have to almost be the parent. I have to tell them. So I said to them, "I needia to know that I love you all very much. It's going to be OK." I thought that was the last thing they were going to hear. I thought they were all going to die. I don't know if that's OK. But I wanted them, wanted it to be one of the last things they heard. Not the gunfire. It was horrible. It was horrible. I'm not a hero. I was just thinking, "Where can we go?" It happened to be the bathroom. I wanted us to be OK. I'm so saddened there are people who in this situation are not OK. And my heart goes out to anyone who knew them and was part of their lives. I can't imagine.Oh, man.Wow.Get- wrenching.Yeah. It is. How have you spoken to your kids about this? Have they asked questions?Not real aefplt in complete denial about it all. We've -- really. In complete denial about it all. We've been watching it on the news. I haven't discussed it with my little one. Respect for that teacher, who just coped beautifully under extreme pressure, don't you think, Wendy? Absolutely. I don't know how you talk to your kids about that sort of thing. You'd have to take such an interesting approach because it's such a huge thing to deal with. As adults we're sitting here trying to deal with it. I don't know how young children would make sense of it.I would not let my 8-month-old go when I got home from work. Makes us realise how lucky we are. Talking to your doctor via the Internet instead of in person vene but is it a bit risky? Coming up shortly.Details on the new album from Mr Joe Cocker.

Welcome back. Joining us to discuss what's making news is Angela Mollard. Hi.Good morning.Across Australia everybody is talking about this shooting that's happened in Connecticut. You have children. Nine and 12. How do you talk to them about an issue like this?This is harder than anything, a sue Sama or a tornado -- tsunami, or a tornado, because they can relate. There are lots of things you can do. You let the child lead the discussion. You find out what they know and let them lead it rather than you showering them with information. It has to be developmentally appropriate. Don't show them too many images. Make your answers short and to the point. You need to make them feel safe. Tell them how this doesn't happen that often and it's very rare and it's out of the ordinary. They need to feel safe. I think it's really important. The other thing is if you don't know something, say you don't know it and look it up. Tell them the good news stories as well. When the Chilean miners were -n ground, I kept my daughter home for 10 minutes from school because she wantsed to see the miners come out. Let's move on to something different. Doctors are about to go viral. There's a new plan in place to have patients talk to their GP via web cam instead of in person. It would be more convenient but is this the best way to get a diagnosis?Mixed feelings. If you live in the country or need a fill a prescription you've had before, no problem. But are we getting so busy we can't prioritise our own health? You need that relationship with your GP, particularly with the increase in mental health issues. You node to sit there and have conversations. Men are very reluctant to discuss things like prostate cancer and have those checks. Kwhooping cough is very, very hard to diagnose. Even a -- whooping cough is very, very hard to diagnose. Even a rash with a child. I think it's really sad we're moving towards a system that just makes it faster and easier and not as thorough or as careful. Your relationship with your GP is important.Often the non-verbal clues, the way you sit. Sort of the vibe you're giving off.I remember having my second baby and I hadn't realised it but I was bit stressed and probably a bit post-natal depression. My GP sat there and said how is the baby measuring and weighing and she said, "How are you?" She looked at me directly in the eyes and I burst in to tears. Finally, your column is another cracker in 'Sunday xing magazine'. What are you -- Mag wreen'. What are you talking about this week?Mr Right. Apparently women still think status, money, and looks are the key things. What about you? Is that what you look for in a bloke?A sense of humour. He has to make me laugh.How 1950s are we? Feminism
