is. >> nicole who asked us not to use her last name knows exactly how thieves broke into her home. >> my daughter was cooking and something burned. the house filled up with smoke, so she opened up the windows and left it cracked a little bit. >> a thief got in through that open window, took the family's laptop and fled. similar crimes have been happening all over takoma park. 14 break ins last month. most of the thieves got in through open windows or broke in to get in. two burglars went in through the front door. >> kicking in of the doors during the day. the going in, seem to be targeting electronics and things they can sell. >> a good boy. >> councilwoman thinks the family pet makes her home less attractive to thieves. she's also urging her neighbors to look around their homes to see where they are vulnerable. >> even if they kick through the door, it's going to get met with a chain, so they won't be
able to breakthrough at the door. >> takoma park police will come out to your house and do a security check for free. they focus on those areas that thieves target. >> we start the inspection from the perimeter. we look again at the security lighting. we look at the windows. we look at the types of lock you have on your doors. the type of door. we make recommendations. >> recommendations like getting to know who belongs in community and who doesn't. >> look out for their property, those are key things that reduce the crime of burglary. >> nicole has taken security at her home seriously. >> i set my alarm every time i go out. if my kids are home, they put it on, too. >> a handful of break ins are related. since most happen between 7:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., they'll have plain clothed officers out during those hours looking for suspicious activetism maurine. >> thank you for that. weather putting a stop to
inspection work at the washington memorial today. weather created a scary moment for one of the repellers last night. eric was blown about 30 feet off the monument by a gust of wind. he wasn't hurt, but he was left hanging from a rope above 50 feet from the ground. park service says they are prepared for incidents like this. inspection resumes tomorrow. today's cold weather caught a lot of people by surprise. so will the rest of the weekend be this chilly? your forecast is next. >> we did get a bite of fall today. no question about it. you know what, we have a couple more chilly days ahead. let's begin now with a look at radar. we had wet weather throughout the course of the day as well. a lot of this hasn't hit some of you, but some of you have gotten it all day long, unfortunately. a lot of this hasn't moved all that much. if you take a look through gaithersburg, that heavy pocket of rain fall lingering through
there. so they are not getting much of a break at all. the rain continues to push its way through. some of it light, some heavy, and some moderate. let's go to our weather maps. a lot of clouds as well across the area. and those are continuing into our far west, if you take a look, you'll see pink and white on there. yes. a little bit of winter precipitation over areas of far west virginia. temperatures right now, 49 degrees at national. 47 at dulles. chilly 49 degrees at dwi. tonight, mostly cloudy. the winds will pick up from the northwest 10 to 15 miles per hour. you might want to bundle up in the morning. not much warmer weather as well. your five-day forecast does have some changes. back to you. >> thank you gwen. >> one day after a u.s. air strike killed american born al- qaeda leader. anwar al-awlaki, the state department warns of an increased risk against
americans. the state department issued a similar alert after osama bin laden was killed in pakistan. joining me now with more on the possible preprecushions of al- awlaki's death is dr. hamid from the potomac institute. should we be concerned about large scale attacks or smaller ones that could be carried out easier? >> likely smaller ones, but we should look to the problem. the short-term effect which could be increasing the attack. however, the long-term effect is generally would be decreasing. because the more leaders is perceived as weak. >> first bin laden, now al- awlaki. two al-qaeda leaders gone. where does this leave the terrorist organization? >> actually, this will weaken them, but never end them because these people like bin laden are the product of the ideology. they are not the ones who
created the ideology. the probe that created, there are thousands like them. they have some leadership abilities. it would be weakening. however, the long-term effect can only happen when the ideology is defeated and weakened. >> there has been some controversy surrounding the targeted attacks of these leaders. do you agree or disagree with the legality? >> the options were not to have a trial or not to have a trial. because he has not been captured. the options were either to kill, threaten to kill americans and innocent people or to allow innocence to be killed by him. this was the only two options and i believe this is one of the best things that ever happened. >> with al-qaeda seemingly in disarray, who or what should we be focusing on now? >> i think you should focus on the immediate revenge
possibility. having an alert, as you just mentioned. it's important to americans can care for and leave or to that effect. also the second step should be trying to use -- that happened within this organization in order to inforks ltrate. this could be used in a beneficial way for us. >> al-qaeda, how dangerous is this organization compared to with al-qaeda? >> they are pretty dangerous, but the leading system is very powerful when it comes to it. the problem comes when they have wealthy people coming to support them. this can make the danger becoming global again. so i am talking about three creating another bin laden. >> all right, thank you so much for your insight tonight. >> my pleasure.
thousands turned out for a star studded dinner tonight with the likes of cindy lopper. tyler ferguson. all of them helping celebrate weakened advances in gay rights. and as fox 5 tells us, it may have been good news for the president facing a tough reelection battle. >> please welcome the president of the united states, barack obama. >> president barack obama on very friendly turf. 3,000 attending the 15th annual human rights campaign dinner and for a president whose numbers are tanking, this had to be music to his ears. >> as a community, we accomplished more in the last two years than we have in the previous 40. president barack obama has stood with us. ladies and gentlemen, this is our moment to stand with him. >> in a video presentation that gay rights organization layed out some of the progress it marked under this
administration. a hate crimes bill, hospital visitation rights for same sex couples. by far, it was the repeal of the military's don't ask, don't tell policy that got the loudest applause. it was a campaign promise mr. obama made to the gay community in 2008. >> it took two years to get the repeal through congress. we had to hold a coalition together. we had to keep up the pressure. we took some slack along the way, but with the help of hrc, we got it done and don't ask, don't tell is history. >> the president acknowledged there is more work to be done. >> i vow to keep up the fight against the so-called defense of marriage act and it's time for it to end once and for all. join don't ask, don't tell in the history books. >> and he asked the group to stand with him, not just in the arena of gay rights, but with his economic agenda, too. >> i'm confident we can continue to write another
chapter together. thank you very much, everybody. >> at the d.c. convention center, fox 5 news. >> maryland cracking down on people who text and drive. we're going to break down the new laws and how they will effect you. united nations considering a treaty that would regulate international arm sales. what this means for the u.s. those stories and much more coming your way this saturday night. stay with us.

townsend. >> what does this mean when you are caught texting and driving in maryland? >> it means you will be fined and penalized. and if you are convicted of it, you can get a point on your driver's license. now if you cause an accident, the fine will be $110 and 3 points on your driver's license. so we are now putting serious teeth behind the crime. what you have to have is good laws and you have to have tough penalties and tough enforcement in order to change behavior. think about this, maurine. at any given moment in the united states, there are 134 million drivers out there on the highway. every minute of the day. and 5% of them are distracted by cell phone, a hand held cell phone. and we know that the thing that drivers fear the most on the highway today are distracted
drivers. 40% of drivers in maryland say they fear a distracted driver more than they do a drunk driver. >> it brings it to my next question. when maryland went to the hand held device. you have to have an ear piece to drive, people thought the text ban should have followed suit. are you surprised it took so long? >> it did. they created a loophole in the law. i think lawmakers thought this was a young person's problem. but they sense that older drivers were beginning to text message. what they did, they carved this loophole for themselves. and that is the most pernicious form of distracted driving. whether you are sending a text message or receiving a text message. if you take your eyes off the highway for two seconds, you could be involved in a crash. and that is the statistic that they have ignored. >> right now to clarify, this
is now a secondary offense, it could be a primary offense. police don't have to see you unbuckled. if they see you, they can stop and ticket you. >> it's a primary offense. sadly if you use a hand held cell phone, that's a secondary offense. so we have to change the law, too. so the jurisdiction has to cut this law. the district of columbia, and it is a good example because this fiscal year alone, they wrote over 11,000 tickets for distracted drivers in the district of columbia. >> it's good to see that maryland is finally getting on board with the ban on texting and driving. i know every little bit helps. john townsend, thanks for stopping by. thank you and we'll see you next time. >> appreciate it. a chicago woman says her suv's air bags suddenly deployed, injuring her passenger while she was
driving. the woman says she was sitting on the passenger side of her ucon. hurt her arm when the air bag deployed. gm will not cover the damages because the woman was not in an accident. the auto maker says it will investigate the incident. a united nations proposal is causing some controversy for gun owners. the un is considering a treaty that will regulate international gun sales. the u.s. would have to track its guns very closely. douglas kennedy explains. >> henry dane doesn't like any law that restricts his constitutional right to bear arms. but the president of the gun club in massachusetts is even more seement veament. >> this is your worse nightmare? >> it means turning over our policy with regard to the firearms over to the united nations. >> the united nations is
considering a treaty that would regulate international firearm sales. requiring member nations like the united states to track their guns starting when the guns are made. >> some fear the treaty will lead to an international gun registration program. that is not okay with many hunters here in the united states. >> it's an end run around the second amendment. with this treaty, it shifts it completely. it becomes -- if the u.n. decides how and when a gun can be transferred, sold, ammunition bought, based on standards that have nothing to do with american law. >> it is about regulating the export and impart of arms. >> danielle of the u.n. says the critics are way off target. >> it's about the trade. with this treaty that is supposed to regulate the way that these cross national
borders. >> what is wrong with that? >> what is wrong with that is that the u.n. is dominated by countries who are unsympathetic to the united states and to the freedoms that we enjoy. >> specifically the freedom to defend ourselves. douglas kennedy, fox news. >> a normal day at work takes a dramatic turn for one children's store employee while she is being called a local hero. that's why she is now being called a local hero. and a montgomery county man is thanking the people who work together to save his life. it's a story you'll only see here on fox 5. .

they drug their feet. >> they agree with certain parts of this jobs bill. if so, it's time for them to tell me what those proposals are. if they are opposed, i would like to know what exactly they are against. are they against putting teachers and police officers and firefighters back on the job? are they against hiring construction workers to rebuild our roads and bridges and schools? are they against giving tax cuts to virtually every worker and small business in america? across america, registered voters are split about the president's jobs plan, kind of like congress is. just 38% think it will create jobs. the same number 39% think it will make no difference as 18% think it will actually cost jobs on top of that, a full 39% think the president's tax and jobs plan are actually bad for america. 48% think they are good. 6% are mixed. republicans fall into the bad for america category. they think cutting excessive regulations would be a better idea and they think the president and the senate need to support legislation in the
