7:03 am
♪ welcome to "cbs this morning." pressure's growing on congress to act against gun violence after america's deadliest mass shooting. page one of this morning's "boston globe" demands "make it stop." the images and ar-15 rifle similar to the weapon used in many mass shootings. that demand for action is schradshared by many after a gunman killed 49 people in an orlando nightclub. in washington democrats showed their anger with a surprise filibuster on the senate floor. its ringleader, senator chris murphy, used to represent the district where 20 children were murdered at the sandy hook elementary school. first, nancy cordes is on capitol hill where the filibuster lasted into the early morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. he finally wrapped up at around 2:00 a.m. after pushing for gun
7:04 am
votes for nearly 15 hours. murphy is a first-term senator from connecticut who was elected just one month after the newtown shooting in his home state left 20 children and six adults dead. he has been pushing for gun votes ever since. >> i've had enough of the ongoing slaughter of innocents, and i've had enough of inaction in this body. >> reporter: senator murphy took fellow democrats by surprise when he went to the floor at 11:00 a.m. and announced he wasn't leaving. >> we're asking for two votes on what could be consensus measures. >> reporter: the first would block those on terrorist wash list was buying a -- watch lists from buying a gun. those could demand background checks for firearms sold at gun shows. 59% of americans support stricter gun laws. >> people have been waiting for action. >> reporter: nearly every senate democrat showed up at some point to support murphy whose
7:05 am
constituents lost children in the sandy hook massacre. >> why would a terrorist or potential terrorist be allowed to have a firearm? >> we ought to be able to reflect the will of the american people. >> reporter: senate rules required murphy to stand on the senate floor the entire time to keep control. new jersey senator cory booker stood, too, in solidarity. >> when you attack one american, you attack us all! >> reporter: republicans have their own measure to block groin purchases by potential terrorists, but it would require police to go through the courts, an extra step they say would ensure no one with a right to a gun gets denied. >> nobody want terrorists to have firearms. we're open to suggestions. >> reporter: after nearly 15 hours, murphy said he had gotten signals that his two measures would get a vote. he wrapped up with this -- >> it takes courage to look to the eye of a shooter instead of
7:06 am
running, wrapping your arms around a 6-year-old boy. what can you do to ensure that orlando or sandy hook never, ever happens again? >> reporter: murphy's office says it got 10,000 calls from constituents during the filibuster. it was a trending topic on twitter. even if he does get those gun votes, there is no guarantee that the two measures will pass. they have both failed before. the best shot is that democrats and republicans will be able to figure out a way to combine their two bills to keep guns out of the hands of would-be terrorists. charlie, so far negotiations haven't gone anywhere. >> thanks. connecticut senator chris murphy is with us from washington. good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> we're pleased to have you, sir. tell us if you think those signals that you say you have received to hold these two votes to put them forward will result in a commitment from the senate majority leader to do just that.
7:07 am
>> well, i've been up for about an hour after sleeping for two hours, and we're going to work today make sure that we have that commitment to bring the votes before the body. as your reported noted, it would be better to get a bipartisan agreement on this issue of keeping guns away from terrorists. at the least, we have to have a vote vote. vote. senator feinstein has modified her proposal to address concerns that republicans have. it may be that if we put this measure on the floor for a vote either at the end of this week or beginning of next week we may be able to draw enough support to get it passed. the american public agrees with us that if you're on the terrorist watch list and you are not allowed to fly on a plane, you certainly shouldn't be able to buy a dangerous assault weapon. that's our ask, to get a vote on that proposition and an expansion of breackground check. we're hopeful that we'll get
7:08 am
that this week or next week. >> does your political instincts tell you the republicans are moving on those two issues? >> my instincts certainly tell me they're moving. if you listened over the course of the day yesterday, there were a number of republicans madly scrambling to find some synchronground. -- some common ground. one of the reasons senator feinstein wasn't able to join us on the floor is because she was trying to work out those compromises. our filibuster made a difference. let's be honest, the senate had no plans to talk about ending gun violence this week on the floor of the senate. at the end of our filibuster, i think we made incredible progress to get the items back on the agenda in the senate this week. >> you sent out a tweet yesterday in the morning that said "i'm prepared to stand on the senate floor and talk about the need to prevent gun violence for as long as i can. i've had #enough." what was the tipping point for you? >> listen, there's been so many tipping points for me. i think i've taken the floor
7:09 am
about 40 different times to scream and yell about the fact that since sandy hook congress has done nothing, hasn't passed a single law to try to reduce the slaughter that's happening on our streets. when i came back to washington and saw that in the wake of the worst mass shooting in this country's history that the republican leadership hadn't scheduled any debate this week on measures to end this epidemic, i just couldn't stand it any longer. and what's so hardwarming to me is that i decided to do this essentially that morning, and over the course of the day organically, almost every single democratic senator came to join me. we had a dozen senators sitting on the floor at 11:00, 11:30 last night. i think it shows the power of this issue at least in our caucus. >> would any of the legislation that you're supporting have prevented the shooter in orlando, the shooter in san bernardino, or the shooter in newtown from purchasing a gun? >> so it's certainly a question as to whether this may have been
7:10 am
impactful in orlando. what this legislation senator feinstein would allow is for the fbi to put individuals on the list of those who can't buy weapons if they suspect that they are linked to terrorist organizations. >> but as you know, if someone is currently on a terror watch list and goes to buy a gun, the fbi director said they are notified. there is an alert sent. >> there's an alert sent, but there's no prohibition on an individual walking out with a weapon. in this case the time between the purchase of the weapon and attack was fairly short. if we have made a decision that the people on these lists can't get on a plane, and we've made that decision, republicans and democrats, why don't we also make a decision that they can't get a wea a quest thiplac mightn impactful in orlando? it might have been. that's why it's worthy to go forward. >> many people applauding you
7:11 am
for raising the issue again. thank you very much, senator murphy, for joining us this morning. >> thank you. the gun issue is bringing some bipartisan agreement to the presidential race. donald trump tweeted yesterday that he would meet with the national rifle association to discuss how to stop people from the terrorist watch list to stop buying guns. hillary clinton said, "welcome to the cause. this is something i've been talking about for a long time." chip reid is in dallas where trump will hold a rally tonight. good morning. >> reporter: it appears there might be some common ground between trump and clinton on the issue of guns, but that's not stopping them from taking aim at each other. >> i'm going to be talking to the nra about that and starting a real dialogue. >> reporter: donald trump said wednesday he's opening to limiting firearm access to people on fbi terror watch lists. >> number of people have brought this to my attention, and i % understand why we should be discussing it. >> reporter: a rare point of agreement between trump and hillary clinton. >> if are you too dangerous to get on a plane, you are too
7:12 am
dangerous to buy a gun. >> reporter: a new poll says voters think clinton would better handle terrorism and national security, but they're divided on which candidate would do a better job on gun policy. >> the people that head up the nra are great people. >> reporter: in atlanta, trump ramped up his warnings, electing clinton, she'd, could destroy america -- >> hillary clinton essentially wants to abolish the second amendment. we are having the blood sucked out of our country. if we don't solve it, it's going to eat our country alive. >> reporter: clinton hit back during a round table discussion in virginia. >> not one of donald trump's reckless ideas would have saved a single life in orlando. >> reporter: both candidates have unfavorable ratings over 50%, just 30% of voters feel trump is prepared to be president. that includes an increasing number of members of his own party. trump offered this advice to his republican critics -- >> either stick together, or let me do it by myself. i'll do very well.
7:13 am
i'm going do very well, okay. >> reporter: the nra says it's happy to talk to trump about guns, but that does not mean it's changing its hard-line position. in a tweet to its members yesterday, the nra urged its members to contact their lawmakers and oppose any new gun control measures. >> the nra met with trump on tuesday, and that the terror watch list was not discussed at all. president obama and vice president biden will travel to florida to meet with the families of thousands killed at the pulse nightclub. they will try to comfort the grieving community. jamie yuccas is at a memorial for the victims at the dr. phillips center for the performing arts in orlando. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. today president obama will meet with victims' families, survivors of the shooting, and medical professionals who heroically saved dozens of lives here in orlando. this is where the public has been coming to mourn. and i can tell you orlando is still in so much pain four days
7:14 am
after the worst mass shooting in u.s. history. yesterday was the first funeral for the 49 victims killed in sunday's massacre. family and friends remembered 40-year-old javier jorge reyes. those who knew him called him a fun and free spirit. dozens gathered across the street to show their support. one held a sign that says "orlando loves you." i can tell you that is the sentiment here, as well. there are so many signs like there one i picked up that say "you are loved. #lovewins #orlandostrong." i talked to one young man last night who survived. his friend died inside that nightclub that night. he shook the entire time he told me that story and told me the pain is getting worse even four days later. >> thanks. we're learning new details about the gunman, omar mateen, and his wife.
7:15 am
the fbi has uncovered information it his behavior that raised concern -- information about his behavior that raised concern about his behavior long before the shooting. jeff pegues in washington with how investigators are also trying to figure out if he had help with the attack. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. with the help of a grand jury, investigators are stepping up their search for evidence that omar mateen's wife may have played a role in the planning of the attack. cbs news has learned that other family members are being looked at by investigators, as well. >> did you know your husband was going do this? >> reporter: law enforcement sources say noor salman purchased ammunition with her husband. they believe she was with him as he cased the pulse nightclub. if it is determined that she had prior knowledge of the attack, she could face criminal charges. investigators believe omar mateen was radicalized in recent years, and they point to the facebook message the killer posted before the massacre as evidence. "you kill innocent women and children by doing u.s. air strikes. now taste the islamic state
7:16 am
vengeance." the message was a precursor for what was to come inside the pulse nightclub. the fbi continues to dig into his background. what they are uncovering is the 29-year-old's erratic behavior. the st. lucie county sheriff's office has confirmed that it wanted mateen transferred out of a florida courthouse in 2013 after they say he made inflammatory remarks about women and jews and then praised the ft. hood shooter. mateen worked for g4s as an armed guard. they say his armed security license was renewed four times, requiring a criminal background and fbi check. records show he had extensive firearms training and of a good shot. >> he was just a very agitated type of individual. >> reporter: david gilroy worked with mateen but quit when he says he felt harassed by him. >> he was on the verge of
7:17 am
violence all the time. >> reporter: members of congress have been told that on the day of the shooting, mateen did internet searches for pulse orlando and shooting. last night, the senate homeland security committee sent this letter to facebook ceo mark zuckerberg asking the company to help with the investigation into mateen's use of the site. gayle? >> thank you very much. disney world faces new questions this morning about why the park did not warn about alligators in the lagoon. an autopsy is planed for 2-year-old lane graves. he was killed by an alligator. his body was recovered yesterday from about six feet of water. mark strassman is outside disney world where wildlife officials are trying to identify the reptile that killed that little boy. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the graves family are still here at disney. they're waiting for the medical examiner to finish his work so they can take the little boy's body back to nebraska. they were three days into their disney vacation when disaster struck.
7:18 am
16 hours into their search, dive teams found the body of the 2-year-old boy on wednesday in the general area of murky water where an alligator snatched him. >> there's likely no question in my mind that the child was drowned by the alligator. >> reporter: lane graves had been wading in about a foot of water at the floridian hotel and spa. the alligator dragged him under despite his father's desperate efforts to save him. >> the family is distraught but somewhat relieved that we were able to find their son with his body intact. >> reporter: disney closed all the park's beaches while search teams scoured the lagoon. it's manmade and sprawling, covering about 200 acres. parts of the lagoon are 14-feet deep and feed into a series of canals that wind through the disney property. >> there's a lot of canals, ponds, and lakes that interconnect through the property.
7:19 am
it wouldn't be unusual at all for alligators to be moving from one body of water to the next. this is one of the most aggressive times of year from now until august. >> reporter: we found signs inside the park warning visitors against feeding the alligators. at the lagoon are lane graves was killed, there are no swimming signs but no warnings about alligators. despite the fact disney has had to remove gators from the property in the past. in a statement, disney said, "we are devastated and heartbroken by this tragic accident and are doing what we can to help the family during this difficult time." wildlife officials are now examining the bite marks of five alligators they have captured and euthanized to see if they've caught the one responsible for killing the little boy. >> we're going to make certain that we have the alligator that was involved and that we remove it from the lake. >> reporter: many members of the search teams, parents themselves, have told us the circumstances of the boy's death are unthinkable. gayle? >> unthinkable is the word.
7:20 am
it is without a doubt one of the most horrible stories we've ever heard. >> yeah. awful nightmare. >> thank you very much. ahead, we go inside an alligator sanctuary to understand the reptile behind this terrible deadly attack at

7:34 am
the orlando nightclub shootings have restarted the debate on guns, particularly the ar-15-style rifle. you often hear them referred to as an assault rifle. in virginia, the law to buy one is pretty straightforward. you have it pass an often very quick background check and pay for your purchase. in virginia where the virginia tech shootings killed 32 people, there is no waiting period for a firearm. even a so-called assault rifle similar to those used in orlando and san bernardino. we sent a cbs news producer into a gun store in alexandria just outside of washington, d.c. >> i would like to buy an ar hi -15. >> reporter: she proved a driver's license and voice recorder i.d. card to prove state residency as well as a passport to prove u.s. citizenship. she filled out federal and state forms requiring her name, date of birth, social security number, and a few basic questions about any past criminal activity or current restraining orders. she passed a brief electronic background check. >> does d this go through?

8:02 am
democrat chris murphy held a filibuster lasting nearly 15 hours. he demanded votes on two amendments. one would stop anyone on a no-fly list or terrorist watch list from getting a gun. the other called for background checks to buy guns on line and at gun shows. >> the connecticut senator got a surprise at one point. >> my oldest little bit on just showed up in the gallery. and a, you're supposed to be in bed. [ laughter ] b, i'm sorry that missed pizza night. and c, i hope that you'll understand someday why we're doing this. why we have sfwatanding -- why have been standing here for eight hours in a fight to make our country a safer and better place. >> murphy's democratic colleagues quickly rallied
8:03 am
behind him. >> you see there's a privilege in this country that is a dangerous type of privilege. it is the type of privilege that says if something is not happening to me personally, if a problem is not happening to me personally, it's not a problem. that's contrary to what we say about ourselves as a country. the spirit of this country has always been we are all in this together. this idea that if something's going on wrong in connecticut, the tragedy happens there, if children are murdered there, that that's not connecticut's problem. that's all of our problem. >> murphy ended the filibuster after 2:00 a.m. when party leaders agreed to vote on the two amendments. political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> news of the day, donald trump will meet with the nra. he surprised the nra yesterday by tweeting that he would support a ban on those who are
8:04 am
on the no-fly list or terror watch list from buying a gun. what does this mean? >> i think that he's said that before. he said he would look into. his positions have a lot of cartilage in them. they can move a lot. i think he obviously wants to try to do something, but i think the nra will make the case that even the aclu has made, that the no-fly list so fuzzy that you don't want to use that. so his position will likely shift after the conversation. >> clinton says, listen, i've been talking about this for a long time. welcome to the cause. does this mean they're on the same page about this particular issue? >> in the most vague possible ways. but no, donald trump's not going to let her fuzz this up. so i think that they may number a ballpark here if he wants to doing something to have those who have been on a terror watch
8:05 am
list. >> someone told me donald trump is in a free fall. >> if you look at his negative ratings, they are getting higher and worse. when you have the leaders and the house speaker ryan and mitch mcconnell, leader in the senate, saying the things about him that they are, that feels like free fall. he has offered a series of solutions to the orlando shooting, and no republican has rushed behind him to say, yes, we agree with you. >> she'd to the leaders -- he said to the leaders, please be quiet, i can win on my own. i don't need you. >> yes. to extent that they're being quiet, they're ducking questions about donald trump because they're worried what he's doing -- >> he was asking them to be quiet. >> i know. some iran for sure. to the extent -- some are not for sure. to the extent he is, he's becoming more radioactive toward republicans. we've seen polls that have the dance between -- distance between trump and hillary clinton growing. >> can he do it alone? >> no, he can't do it alone.
8:06 am
remember, he can't do it alone if they are speaking out regularly against the policies he's putting forward. two of his main plank on the -- the temporary muslim ban and deportation of 11 million, you have leaders of the republican party saying those are bad ideas. his response to the orlando shooting, republicans saying we don't agree with that. and so when you've got that kind of pressure again you, you can't do it alone. >> let me ask you, too, about trump's relationship with the republican national committee and republican officials who said they would help him fund-raise, gave him ideas, call big fundraisers, he didn't do that. he's angered many. does that suggest a rocky convention in five weeks? >> probably because donald trump has a lot of things going. on he's working on a lot of things. you can't plan your own -- you can't do it alone in a convention and do it alone in a campaign. he needs a lot of what the rnc snouf place. so yes, they've got to come to some accommodation or he's going
8:07 am
to be doing it on the fly. and convention says done on the fly -- do you remember when clint eastwood gave a speech and everybody scratched their head, that's what a convention on the fly looks like. that's not something donald trump wants to see. >> clinton and his chair -- >> the confusion sowed in america. >> thanks. this weekend john will talk with the executive vice president and ceo of the national rifle association. that is sunday right here cbs. were some of the most notes in rock history ripped off? ahead, how led zeppelin and founder jimmy page answered accusations in court that he stole the iconic guitar rif for

resurgence of rowing. yep, rowing. it was one of the original sport in the modern olympic games. in the 1920s and '30s, collegiate crew got the same kind of press coverage as baseball. after decades of languishing, jericka duncan shows us how rowing is one again racing ahead. >> reporter: the sport of rowing has been called a symphony in motion. it's easy to see why when you watch a team like yale's. eight touring oarsmen rowing in unison against the resistance of water and wind. all while balancing on a two-foot-wide boat. hubert travinsky is the bulldogs's captain. >> to sync up everyone and work as a unit and work as one piece together. >> reporter: rowing is the oldest contested college sport. first race was the harvard-yale regatta in 1852.
8:14 am
many schools still take it very seriously which is why the sport is growing. the top tier membership rose 27% in 2015. partly because student athletes see it as a way to set themselves apart in the college admissions process. rowing's renaissance is also happening on land. at boutique fitness clubs like row house in new york. >> here we go. >> reporter: the crew may row to a different beat, but they're still getting the same physical benefits as those in the boat as i learned personally. >> three more -- >> reporter: that was intense. >> yeah. it's an intense workout. >> reporter: row house owners eric and debra frolich saw an opportunity with the ergometer, also known as the erb. >> it's such an effective full-body workout that it didn't make sense that tlesht their weren't rows like treadmills. >> we found people with history of rowing and loved it.
8:15 am
>> reporter: what's the common misconception? >> right off the top, it's not upper body workout. it's 60% legs, 30% give or take more core, and about 10% arms. so it's really just the opposite of what you would think it is. >> long and strong. >> reporter: regulars say part of the attraction is being able to get that intense workout at any age and in any condition. >> my back was bad. my knees were bad. at 54, there's always something going with my body. with rowing i think it helped my back. my knees were never an issue. >> rowing and crew is no joke. >> reporter: jordan is a sports minutes physician. >> if you're doing a -- sports medicine physician. >> if you're doing a hard run or same amount of calories. if your joint become arthritic, running can be painful. rowing is less loading force on your joints. >> what is this? >> reporter: even the netflix hit "house of cards" can't resist the erg.

>> it is. >> so hard on families. i think a lot of parents feel like they don't want to let their kid out of their sight after things like this happen. i think that the useful thing we can do is we can say at the end of the day nothing matters like safety. and i as your parent do everything i can to keep you safe. and when you're not with me, i need you to do everything you can to keep yourself safe. with teenagers that becomes a conversation about how you drink, how you drive, all of the risky things teens interact with. there are things we can't control. there are a lot of things teenagers can control. these can become moments when we return to those and the important of safety. >> important information. and at there time, too, when many teens are leaving home. even if they're going to camps or jobs or leaving to go to college. how do you deal with the one foot out the door, as you say in your column? >> it's such a tough moment. it's hard for people to be on the same page. the parent is often thinking about loss.
8:35 am
they may be excited for their teenager, but they're thinking about what they're losing. the teenager is anxious. really excited. you know, everybody's going in different directions. and the parent often want to connect, and the teenager often doesn't want to connect so much. >> you said they start to withdraw, but you shouldn't take it personal. it's hard ton take it personal, though. >> it is. >> when your door is closed. >> teenagers move out psychologically before they move out physically. >> i love that. >> they start doing this young. they're doing this -- >> they're gone before they're gone. >> and they're practicing leaving. i think the parent is thinking, we only have a couple of month together, let's enjoy it. and the kid is thinking, i'm pretending that i've already left so that when i at least's easier. >> lisa, i've talked it your book so many times with girlfriends, other mothers about how we look at our teenagers' behaviors, even our girls' behavior. say, angti inacting annoying. you're trying to say the behaviors for independence should be embraced as they're trying to become their own person. like rejiggering our mind as
8:36 am
parents. >> i think the hardest part of having a teenager, what gayle said, it feels so personal. their job to move away. their job is to become independent. as parents, we want to stay connected. we want to be in their lives. especially as they get more and more something, they know more stuff, they're more fun to be with. >> as they get more interesting. >> they find interesting team spend other time. they want to know what's going on. >> true. >> i remember what president obama was asked to speak at the graduation of his daughter who was going away for her gap year. he said, are you kidding? i'm going to be there with dark glasses crying my heart out. >> absolutely. it's really tough for parents. i think their wishes for that moment are very hard to gratify. you know, they want more time, they want to be connected. i think what we see is teenagers want to be with their friends. they are sure they're going to get to see their parents at thanksgiving, they're not sure what's happening with their friends. >> when does that start? when they are more interested in their friends than home? >> usually by sixth or seventh grade. >> i was thinking 12, 13, yeah.
8:37 am
>> the other thing we see, as teenagers are getting ready to leave home, if they think about their friends or romances, they don't have to think about saying good-bye to their family. >> it's hard for them, too. >> so hard. i think what looks like misbehavior or detachment or being uninterested is actually a stressed teenager trying to manage big feelings about leaving. >> what can parents do to make the transition easier? >> i think the first thing, don't take it personally. i think the next is to remember high school graduation changes parenting. it doesn't end parenting. >> yeah. >> i think a lot of parents feel like this is how we're ending? that's not a good place to be. i think then if they can bear with it and, you know, say the thing they need to say, not have long lectures on the way out the door, that's not going work well, i -- >> let them know we're going to talk and keep it short. >> keep it short. there are things i want you to know. the parent may have an idea that we'll have long heart-to-heart talks before college. that is often not where teenager are. parents often look ford
8:38 am
thanksgiving. there's a next chapter in the story. this is not the end of the story. if parents can relax and say this is a moment in my life as a parent, this is a moment in my adolescent's life, there will be many moment after this. >> it does get better. >> it does. along with every phase. thank you very much. >> gayle's such a good mom, too. >> i don't know about that, but i do -- i love it so much. every single phase. it gets better. thank you, lisa. sideline reporter could steal some of the show at tonight's nba finals. ahead, we'll take you to cleveland for the court side courage of craig sa
