Transcript: Top Four in 4 - November 10, 2017

hey welcome back--glad your with us. we've got to get through 4 headlines in 4 minutes..the clock is already ticking, lets begin. we got to start with something fun! here's headline number 4 the board game clue, the wiffle ball and the paper airplane are the newest inductees into the national toy hall of fame. the trio was honored at the upstate new york hall on thursday. the class of 2017 takes it place alongside more than 60 previous honorees, including the dollhouse, the radio flyer wagon, and the jump rope! here is how the winners are named, historians and educators follow this game.... but they apparently follow a process that begins with nominations from the public. to make the hall of fame, toys must have inspired creative play across generations. this year's other finalists were: the board game risk, magic 8 ball, matchbox cars, my little pony, pez candy dispenser, play food, sand, transformers and the card game uno. here's headline number 3 across the country, the 2017 election saw big wins for a diverse group of candidates. for instance, chris hurst was a tv news anchor in southwest virginia two years ago when his reporter girlfriend was fatally shot by a former station employee, during an outdoor live broadcast. hurst decided to run for the virginia house of delegates as a democrat in a republican area -- and won. democrat danica roem made history in virginia by winning a seat in the house of delegates. she will be the state's first openly transgender lawmaker. she defeated a conservative republican who sponsored a bill to dictate which bathroom transgender people can use. and it's not just virginia. ravinder bhalla is a sikh and won the race for mayor in hoboken new jersey, despite racist flyers that said "don't let terrorism take over our town!" wilmot collins, came to helena montana 23 years ago as a refugee from liberia. he will be the first black mayor in montana history here's headline number 2--i must warn you--this story i'm about to read could be unfit for children to hear...but we've got to get through this. when gunfire tore through the first baptist church in sutherland springs, the bullets claimed eight children and teenagers among the more than two dozen who were killed. it was the largest number of children to die in a mass shooting since 20 perished at sandy hook elementary school in 2012. like that massacre in newtown, connecticut, the fact that the assailant slaughtered defenseless children compounded the anguish. nearby schools quickly added grief counselors. one couple who survived the attack, rosanne solis and joaquin ramirez, say gunman devin patrick kelley went aisle by aisle through the pews and shot crying babies at point- blank range. the dead included the 14- year-old daughter of the church's pastor and the unborn baby of a woman who was fatally shot. the suspect in the texas church massacre is the latest in a string of mass shooters who had a history of either being threatening or abusive before carrying out their attacks. a 2017 report from a gun control group used fbi data to show 54 percent of mass shootings relate to domestic or family violence. in 42 percent of the cases the gunmwed warning signs. james hodgkinson-- the 66 year old shooter who opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in june had been arrested in 2006 for punching a woman in the face. and the first wife of pulse nightclub shooter omar mateen claimed he beat her repeatedly. experts say other warning signs include becoming obsessed with other mass killers and acquiring more firearms.. and that family and friends often see the behavior ahead of time. experts say it's crucial that family and friends alert authorities. according to the mississippi coalition of domestic violence. one woman in five and one man in seven have been severely injured by an intimate partner. -- intimate- partner violence accounts for 15 percent of all violent crimes statewide. -- a gun in the home increases the risk of homicide in domestic violence by 5 hundred percent. those are the facts. so lets do something. if you know of someone who is a victim of domestic violence, or if you are a victim yourself again there is help out there. call 1-800-799- safe---know the red flags. join me next week for another
