if omicron turns out to be less dangerous than delta, very real possibility, government gets serious about making people get vaccinated, that's how we save lives, maybe turn the bear to a bull i like to say there's always a bull market somewhere, i promise to try to find it for you. i'm ji greatest threat tool i'm shepard smith. this is the news on cnbc the battle over abortion rights. the blockbuster case that could over turn. >> we know what we need to do. >> what we know about --
no exceptions for rape or incest the court has a solid 6 to 3 con sefbtive a ruling in this case could significantly weaken roe v wade or over turn it. passionate protests outside the supreme court as justices ask questions and listen to arguments since 1973 roe v wade has prohibited states from banning abortions before 23 weeks. the point of vie lablt it established abortion as a constitutional right chief justice john roberts was once seen as a key swing vote. today he signalled he is open to a 15-week time limit for getting an abortion. >> if you think that the issue is one of choice, that women should have a choice to terminate their pregnancy, that supposes that that there is a
point of which they've had the fair choice, opportunity to choice but if it really is an issue about choice, why is 15 weeks not enough time? >> justice sonya sotomayor warns over turning it will be political after three conservative justices. >> will there institution provide in the public perception the constitution and its reading are just political acts? i don't see how it is possible if people believe it's all political, how will we survive >> abortion has long been one of america's most divisive issues in august, a poll by nbc news found 54% of registered voters in america believe abortion
should be legal. always or most of time 34% said abortion should be illegal with exceptions. nbc justice correspondent pete williams listened to the argument if the court uphold the mississippi law, what would it mean for roe >> states can't boeen abortion before the age of viability. if they say 15 weeks is okay, that would unlease other states to try to restrict abortion or ban abortion, shorter period of times. we're still waiting for the court to say what it will do about the lawsuits against the texas law that bans abortion after six weeks. whether it over turns roe or upholds the mississippi law and e vis rates the viability standard would be change in abortion >> a lot of back and forth today over precedent how do the justices handle that? >> think were seen to be talking to each other.
it was meant as a message to her colleagues the liberals are saying how can we justify over turning roe if nothing has changed since we last looked at this 30 years ago. some conservatives said we shouldn't be shy about over turning precedents with the most forward leapi leaning decisionse over turned rulings. listen to the way brett kavanaugh put it >> if we think that the prior precedents are seriously wrong, if that, why then doesn't the history of this court's practice with respect to those cases tell us that the right answer is actually the return to the position of neutrality >> justice amy coney barrett had some similar questions that suggest they willing to vote to uphold the mississippi law >> pete, arguments done but the decision months away, right? >> yes set your alarm for probably late
june decision this consequential, we probably won't get it until the end of the term. thanks so much the united states just recorded its first known case of the omicron variant. the cdc confirmed it today the news little surprise to health experts who said it was only matter of time until the new train spread to the u.s. here is what we know about this first case so far. researchers in california detected covid omicron variant in a person who traveled to south africa the patient returned to the san francisco area early last week the patient tested positive two days ago and experienced mild symptoms they are recovering. health officials say the patient is fully vaccinated but has yet to get a booster shot. >> the individual is self-quarantining and all close contacts have been contacted and all close contacts thus far have tested negative.

health measures already in place. vaccines, boosters and masks in crowded places though there is speculation about whether the vaccines will need to be updated, dr. fauci emphasized people shouldn't wait for ga new version to become available. he said the best protection is what you can get now >> president biden expected to announce sweeping new travel requirements tomorrow, right >> we got a hint of this this afternoon. dr. fauci saying travelers to the u.s. will be required to test negative within 24 hours of departure. that's down from three days right now from those who are vaccinated the cdc urged airlines to share information who have been to eight southern african countries within two weeks of their fliepflight and the biden administration is expected to announce that the mask man date on public transportation including buses, planes and trains will be extended until mid-march

>> how did a real bullet get on the set? >> i have no idea. a bullet that wasn't supposed to be on the property >> abc news released that edited promo. investigators are looking into a new theory of how the live round got into film set. here is cnbc >> the mystery of how a live round made its way into gun held by alec baldwin focused on the company that supplied the ammunition pdq arm and prop a prop house in albuquerque. she believes some of the other rounds were live ammo. according to the affidavit, seth k kenney said he hainault where the live rounds came from.
he got reloaded ammunition from a friend and it had to be a reloaded round that was fired. >> it's the same as factory loaded round of ammunition that's unconsciousable >> he did not immediately respond when asked for a comment. there's new information on how the gun was checked before it was fired. in the affidavit, she told police she loaded five rounds before she went to lunch she then pulled the gun out of a safe and didn't really check it too much because it was locked up she then put in the final round. >> that's wrong on every step of the process. before you go to lunch, you unload that weapon. >> reporter: added to this story, father fell reed told detectives he brought a can of live ammo to a previous production and never got it back from seth. reed told detectives his
ammunition may match the ammunition found on the set of rust according to police, alec baldwin was practicing when the gun was fired. now baldwin says he never pulled the trigger. pa relinquish said that's impossible >> firearms don't fire themselves it's like saying i didn't drive the car that was in the wreck. i just happen to be in the driver seat at the time. >> re police in california say the wealthy and the elderly are the new targets of a wave of robberies up and down the state. just this morning, police say robbers shot and killed the wife of the music legend clarence avant in an invasion of her beverly ly hills home. she was the mother-in-law of the netflix ceo. netflix confirmed the news in a statement. chopper video appears to show a shattered sliding door

the event being argued at any rate are decades old that's got to make it harder to prove. >> it makes it very difficult especially when you date back to the early '90s you don't have everything time stamped with text messages, phone records, e-mails all the things we would use today to put an actual time on an event you have the fact that memories fade, witnesses die and people move on and they forget what happened so many years ago you saw that with the defense. they made ef effort to exploit any gaps or failings in memory >> legally is that a solid argument >> it's called the empty chair defense and it's used all the time.
