We also have to strengthen the background check because we know there have been failures there, and hold the FBI accountable and make sure that threat assessment teams are paying attention to the tips that they are getting, because this tragedy could have--it seems--could have been prevented had the FBI paid attention to two different tips they receive.
The definition of tip as a noun that I knew was "a useful piece of information, especially about how to do something or about the likely winner of a race or competition" (Cambridge Dictionary), so at first I understood this sentence as “threat assessment teams should pay attention to the useful information(such as list of names of people who’ve committed crimes before) they get" so that they are aware of the potential criminals, and thus take special care of them.
But then, he also says 2 different tips again, and it doesn’t make sense if I understand ‘tip’ here as a definition above. The only things I can guess as 2 tips in this video are "lifting minimum age to 21" and "strengthening background check" because after their conversation the woman also says
OK. It does sound like there are some common grounds here, ...... it seems like there's at least two points here.
So do "tips" and "points" mean the same here? But how can FBI receive("FBI paid attention to 2 different tips they receive.") two tips, which are just policy plan, or bill they are trying to introduce in the future ?
