if you feel like you can explain it, sir, and make sense while doing so, hit it out of the park. otherwise, on this one, we are all waiting to hear how you explain it. that does it for us. good wednesday morning. north korea completed preparations for a missile test and japan is on alert and china halted all tourist travel to north korea. gun control. a deal could be announced between republicans and democrats. details over a stabbing rampage at a texas college that left 14 wounded. thousands will descend on washington, d.c., demanding reform. and the white house goes memphis soul. very good morning to you. right now south koreans are going about business as usual, this despite a report that north korea is ready for a preliminary
test any day. navy admiral reassured congress u.s. forces are at the ready. >> i believe we have the credible ability to defend the homeland, to defend hawaii, defend guam, to defend our deployed forces and allies. >> nbc's jim maceda is in seoul. a lot of bluster over the last couple of weeks and now the south is saying they know who is causing all of these threats. who is he? >> reporter: hi, richard. everyone's been speculating about why the level of war like rhetoric spiked in recent weeks, you're right. it may have a lot to do with a little known but very ambitious north korean vice marshal who is trying at least according to the times of london to make a name for himself. this man is behind all the threats behind nuclear war and destruction. few here are really taking seriously.
meanwhile, all eyes are on north korea's next move. intelligence sources saying it could launch at least two medium range missile at any time. they're now loaded on mobile launchers and fully fueled in theory they could reach u.s. bases on guam in the pacific. but north korea is saying this is just a test launch of previously untested missiles. still, allies in the region are on a state of high alert. gentlem japan deployed batteries around tokyo saying they'll shoot down any missile, any debris even heading for japan even by mistake. so very tense times now for the u.s. and its allies in this region. richard, back to you. >> jim maceda with the very latest live in seoul. thank you so much. a deal on gun reform is on the horizon. threats of a republican fi
filibuster are fading. now if reached, it could be the first step to the biggest change in u.s. gun law in nearly 20 years. majority leader harry reid scheduled a vote for thursday. >> there are strong feelings and deep disagreements about some of the measures. but every one deserves a vote, yes or no, no hiding. no running from an issue that has captivated america. >> as many as 14 republican senators including minority leader mitch mcconnell vowed to filibuster the legislation. a mounting number of senators within the gop now appear willing to break with leadership and allow debate to move forward. a lone star college student was arrested after his stabbing that left 14 people injured. 20-year-old dylan quick told police he'd been planning at tack for some time and that he fantasized about stabbing people for years.
one student said he saw police chasing quick and joined in snapping this photo of quick while he was restrained on the ground. officials say quick used a razor like knife to attack victims, some of whom were stabbed in the neck and face. quick is charged with three counts of aggravated assault and is due in court on thursday. the national mall will be center stage today when thousands gather to rally support for immigration reform including a direct path to citizenship for some 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the country. nbc's tracie potts is on the mall for us this morning. traci, tomorrow also could be a key day on this issue. >> reporter: it could. tomorrow we could finally see that legislation that the so-called gang of eight has been promising. these are the four democrats and republicans who have been trying to work on some sort of compromise that both sides can live with. we're out here today because in just a few hours, thousands of organizers and maybe tens of thousands of people are going to flood the national mall.
these are the groups that are pro immigration reform. they want to see reform happen. they want to see a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million people who have been working and living in this country illegally. some of them for years. now one of the keys to getting that done is farmworkers. they sat down with growers and have an agreement on visas that would allow many of these people to stay in the country. but the opposition, those who oppose, say that people who came into this country illegally should not get a quick path to citizenship. we'll hear more about that today. richard? >> some saying that this legislation can be 1,000 plus pages long. thank you. the white house did a little soul searching last night. first family celebrated in style with a concert commemorating memphis soul music. musicians eddie floyd, justin timberlake who was born in memphis were the big names performing for guests in the
east room. president obama said soul music helped to bridge divides and desegregation and created harmony with harmony. it is part of a pbs series "in performance at the white house." now here's your first look at this morning's dish of scrambled politics. the gun debate got personal for harry reid on tuesday. he mentioned his father's suicide on the senate floor. >> in nevada, if you purchase a handgun, you have to wait three days to pick it up. can you believe that? it can save the lives of many people. sometimes people in a fit of passion or purchase a handgun to do bad things with it, even as my dad did, killed himself. waiting three days helps. >> meanwhile, newtown families lobby on capitol hill. james inhofe is under fire for insensitive comments.
the republican told reporters he believes the families are being made to think gun reform "has something to do with them when, in fact, it doesn't." the group mayors against illegal guns says lawmakers view the current gun fight as ideological and not emotional. the organization's director appeared on all in with chris haze last night. >> congress doesn't think about this issue in the way we do and the reason is we get the call at 2:00 in the morning when a police officer is gunned down, a child is hit by a stray bullet. members of congress don't get those calls. "all in with chris hayes" is here on msnbc. elizabeth colbert-bush is out with her first ad. she says she won't follow any party line to reduce government waste. colbert-bush faces mark sanford next month. the republican committee begins a three-day retreat in hollywood after the november

delayed. as i've been saying this morning, good thing bill karins is here to join us. you have something for everybody. >> three things. what is most impressive. 90 in d.c., a foot of snow in minneapolis or the fact that abilene, texas, was 93 yesterday, 1 hours a2 hours ago they're 36. >> take your pick. >> it's an extreme day. dallas, texas, your temperatures dropped 20 degrees as this cold front is going through. look at the temperature in st. louis, 70. look at denver, 9 degrees in denver right now. one of the coldest april mornings you ever recorded. we have the crazy extremes out there. it could be 90 degrees in dallas. the cherry blossoms just popped out in a hurry yesterday with temperatures in the 80s. a little bit of showers early this morning in new england. we could get another round later today. bring that umbrella with you to the north. now to the middle of the country. we're going to see the snow.
