Bipartisan US senators waiting on decision from Trump on gun control

Bipartisan US senators waiting on decision from Trump on gun control

"It's with out a doubt 'Gun Sense, ' while you happen to mediate about it", Trump stated, suggesting that any invoice lawmakers come up with could presumably well merely aloof undergo that name.

As senators struggle to vote on anything, House Democrats are voting on more and stepped-up ideas, today moving bills through committee to limit high-capacity magazines and support more red flag laws, allowing law enforcement to take weapons from anyone thought to be unsafe. "I think we will know soon, within the next day or two, if the White House is willing to put a substantive background check bill on the table".

The White House threatened to veto that bill, saying it would impose "burdensome" requirements on some firearm sales. They added that they hoped Trump would convey a decision by Thursday. "Until that happens, all of this is theatrics", McConnell said.

Background checks protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens while helping keep firearms out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them, says Senator Pat Toomey.

"Thousands of people, thousands of children have died since Sen". He also took a dig at Pelosi and Democrats, using a well-worn Republican talking point. "We will fight on every front - in the courts, in the Congress, and in the court of public opinion to make sure this issue is too hot to handle for the GOP to block". They joined nine other Democratic governors in creating a letter to the president and Republican Senate Greater part Leader Mitch McConnell.

The gunman in the Odessa, Texas, shooting last month that claimed the lives of seven people was reportedly able to purchase an AR-15-style rifle through a private sale, evading a federal background check that had disclosed a mental health issue that blocked him from getting a gun in 2014, according to The Associated Press.

On their first full day back in the Capitol after a lengthy August recess, Democrats sought to intensify political pressure on Republicans to embrace tougher gun restrictions, while also laying the foundation for making gun violence a central issue of their 2020 campaigns should a compromise falter. Chuck Schumer of NY - on Tuesday slammed McConnell for calling out Democrats on their "theatrics" and for failing to call up background check legislation that the House passed in February.

"We want those who do business with New Jersey to share our values and be committed to ending the scourge of gun violence in our communities", Mr. Murphy said.

The bipartisan Toomey-Manchin legislation failed to pass the Senate in 2013, and many Republicans continue to oppose the idea as an infringement on gun rights.
