i said 'are you sure... and he said no... i'm just really tired." uber says dalton did pass their background checks. the county prosecutor says a search warrant was executed at dalton's house... and a significant store of weapons was uncovered. in kalamazoo, michigan, mike tobin, fox news. a group of survivors of sandy hook shooting victims are filing a lawsuit against gun-maker remington. twenty children and six educators were killed when a young man unloaded 154 rounds from an a-r-15 semiautomatic rifle on that fateful day in newtown, connecticut. an attorney representing the families of nine victims and a teacher who survived announced the lawsuit today. the a-r-15 is based on an automatic, lightweight weapon originally commissioned by the u-s military. the military studied how do people die from gunshots. how do we kill more people with more efficiency, more accurately in less time. and they put it out to bid and the ar-15.== ==and that same weapon was found

9:37 pm
quote- "exerts influence on the warring parties" to reach a long term cease-fire. dujarric says: "above all, it is a long-awaited signal of hope to the syrian people that after five years of conflict there may be an end to their suffering in sight." but syrian president bashar al-assad, and the rebel groups his regime is fighting, must also be willing to hold their fire. over the weekend, assad said he would agree to a truce as long as it didn't help "terrorists". one of the factions russia and syria considers a terrorist group, is the al-qaeda linked, anti-assad, nusra front. the cease-fire plan excludes the nusra front and isis. but the high negotiations committee - the group representing syria's opposition factions - said it would accept a cease fire with conditions, one of them, that syria and russia stop bombing the nusra front. earnest says: "this is going to be difficult to implement... we know there are a lot of obstacles, and there are sure to be some setbacks." after several other failed

doubt this will be any different. but russian president vladimir putin called the agreement a "real step forward" that can stop the bloodshed". even if cease-fire happens, it doesn't mean the war will end in syria, as the us and russia will continue to fight isis, and isis will continue its bloodshed. in jerusalem, john huddy, fox news. donald trump ... now being called "unstoppable" ... after his big win in and next up there is the democratic race .... where hillary clinton looks to keep the momentum following her win in nevada over the weekend ... peter doocy, is in washington with the latest. the g-o-p candidates are gearing up for their next campaign showdown ... as they crisscross nevada monday before tomorrow's state cacaus there ... and it comes on the heals of another big win for the frontrunner -- donald trump ... who is now suggesting he is unstoppable after taking
