>> shots fired, 1200 building. >> oakland schools have their own police force and its chief didn't waste words on president trump's proposal to arm teachers. >> well, i think that's ridiculous. it's just a knee jerk reaction to a subject matter he knows nothing about. >> reporter: chief godown isn't making a political statements. he's talking about the practical odds of a teacher armed with a handgun facing down someone with a multiple shot assault weapon. >> the weaponry that he had and the amount of rounds that he had, we would be hard pressed to stop the kid with the handgun on my belt. >> reporter: there's no match for that. >> there's no match for that. this predator knows the first round he caps off he's probably got between five to 10 minutes before the calvary is coming. >> reporter: while many can die in those few minute, godown says having teachers with guns would actually make it more dangerous. >> if the police show up and there's a civilian in there with a handgun, how do we know it's a teacher? >> this does not make our children safe. >> reporter: and the teachers union doesn't want it either.
>> to have those children know that there is a gun in the room wondering about where it is? we need to be talking about real safety at school sites, not arming teachers. >> reporter: but chief godown says it's not that easy. >> a lot of schools have metal detectors, security guards, police officers. the school in florida had that. the reality is when someone comes in with a weapon or rifle such as this kid had, you'll have a hard time stopping him. >> that's not saying we're not going to try. we'll have to deal with the situation. as a matter of fact, the chief this wednesday will hold his latest in a series of training sessions with teachers about how to handle situations like this. get out of the way. get out of the school, hide and eventually possibly you have to confront the person. >> you were telling me the chief points out for whatever reasons these school shootings aren't happening in the big bay area cities. >> not only in the bay area cities, but we haven't had them in new york, los angeles, chicago. no. it seems to be a phenomenon of suburban areas and also really ironically towns that are known to otherwise be very safe.
>> seem safe. phil, interesting, thank you. warriors head coach steve kerr is making a play for tougher gun rawls. kpix5's kiet do -- laws. kpix5's kiet do with that story. >> reporter: to the young people of the world, coach steve kerr has a message. you are our only hope for change. >> the old guys aren't going to be able to do it. it's the young people. you guys are going to do it. it's the next generation. it's the youth. >> reporter: the warriors head coach headlined a town hall meeting on gun violence today at newark memorial high school to motivate, inspire and remind them that they have a power they haven't been old enough to use until now. >> no. 1, you can scare the hell out of people by voting, just scare the hell out of them, okay? >> reporter: kerr whose father was shot and killed by terrorists in beirut in the '80s has long been vocal about gun control. he was joined today by
congressman rokhana after the president changed his opinion on background checks and other issues. >> what the kids are saying is let's get something done. >> reporter: matt graduated from parkland high school two years' and said his brother and sister sur -- years ago and said his brother and sister survived the deadly shooting in parkland, but lost three friends. >> if we can get two of every five young people to vote, we can get public leaders that care about us and safety more than they care about their wallet and their position. >> reporter: for some newark high school students, it was a pivotal moment. >> i'm a huge warrior fan and yeah, it is amazing that he came here to share his opinion with us and i'm happy he's trying to make us to make a greater difference in the community. >> and i believe in all of your
collective generation's ability to make this your no. 1 issue and to change the way our country thinks about gun safety. thank you very much.

run for governor for the state of california. >> reporter: for months billionaire tom steyer enjoyed speculation he would run for governor but decided not to. >> tom steyer engaged in what might have been the longest unconsummated act of political foreplay in history. >> reporter: nathan ballard is a democratic strategist. he's not working for the gubernatorial candidates but personally supports gavin newsom. in this year's elections the field of front runners has been the same for months with newsom in first place and antonio villaraigosa a close second. >> right now it looks like it's shaping up to be a two-man race. so john chung has kind of emerged as the attack dog. elaine huston is it fantastic but has never shown traction in the polls. >> reporter: matt schoop said do not count the republicans out. >> republicans are expected to comprise 38 to 42% of the overall turnout in the primary
in this midterm election. >> reporter: he said with so many voters and democrats divided, one of the two republicans could make it to the general election. >> republicans should still have enough votes to make it into the top two position, especially with four or five well funded democrats. >> now schoop said he's disappointed republicans aren't running anyone against dianne feinstein. her only challenger is fellow democrat kevin deleon, but he did say republicans are enjoying watching the democrats fight with each other and spend money tearing each other down that they would have spent on other races. >> every election it seems like we hear about rumors of someone jumping in the race, but it never really happens. why don't they jump in? >> sandberg or tim cook, exactly. i asked both strategists and they both said look, tech people often think that they can innovate away people's problems, so they do sometimes consider running, but they're also data driven and they take polls and the polls show that the public so far is not interested in having a tech
executive holding public office. >> the algorithm doesn't hold up. >> so far, exactly. >> thank you. aldon smith says that he is innocent in a domestic violence case that cost him his job with the oakland raiders. kpix5's juliette goodrich at raiders headquarters in alameda with more. juliette? >> reporter: aldon smith was released from the raiders last monday and today he was in court and pled not guilty to assault charges. or charges of domestic violence, assault wi oduce great bo former oakland raiders linebacker aldon smith in court after turning himself in on domestic violence charges. he was released on $30,000 bond on misdemeanor charges of domestic violence, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism, but today he entered a not guilty plea. case and we ask for protective order for the victim " live rehab facility district attorney george gascon says they are holding smith accountable and will continue to prosecute this case. >> it doesn't matter whether

very special that it would seem hard to believe they're not at all related or at the very least, a trend. if they are, deputies say it's a concerning one and folks who live near marijuana grows should be concerned as well. this is the second time in just over a month sonoma county deputies have been on the hunt for a group responsible for multiple home invasion robberies. their motivation deputies say is the same. it's marijuana and the money they can make from it. >> it has become abundant. it's out there, easy to get and unfortunately it does make us an easy target to steal marijuana here and take it across state lines and make two to three times the profit on it. >> reporter: just last month an armed group barged into two homes in santa rosa. one of them according to this google satellite image clearly has plants growing in the backyard and this is a satellite image from one of the homes involved in this morning's robberies. it's stated neighbors say off camera because the grow behind
