Trump hints at gun background check action

Cuomo joins 11 governors in demanding Trump and GOP act on ‘common sense’ gun reforms Congressional Democrats vow to prioritize gun legislation

A bipartisan group of United States senators yesterday said they would try to revive a failed 2013 bill to close loopholes on the law requiring gun sale background checks, but were awaiting word on whether President Donald Trump will support their effort. House Democrats pushed forward with new legislation a new package of gun restrictions, including a bill that would ban the manufacture and sale of large-capacity magazines, and sharpened their calls for Sen Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, the majority leader, to take up a bill they approved in February expanding background checks to all gun buyers.

Following a summer months of devastating mass shootings, Congress seems no nearer to approving laws to control gun violence as President Donald Trump wavers on what kind of monthly bill he needs the lawmakers to send out for his signature.

Scores of the nation's top CEOs are urging the Republican-controlled Senate to take action to curtail gun violence after the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

McConnell said Tuesday that Democrats are partaking in "theatrics" above gun command laws, while Dwelling Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned that "people are dying" simply because the Senate chief refuses to act.

Nonetheless they depicted the president as engaged and encouraging, with Toomey saying Trump had a sturdy "ardour in doing something meaningful" to stop gun violence, even though he has now not endorsed any particular manner.

"We'll see what happens".

"I'm open to anything that we can get bipartisan consensus on that also makes sure that we're not overreaching and really beginning to threaten the rights of law abiding citizens of which the majority of people who own guns are", Tillis said. Trump, he noted, had long ago said he would veto the House-passed background check bill.

The governors of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and DE are urging President Donald Trump to act on gun handle by supporting a common track record check out bill, and to outlaw assault weapons.

Amid fierce lobbying against the bill by the National Rifle Association and gun industry groups, the measure failed in April, 2013.

"If you don't think that's going to cause a significant amount of problems when you are actually on the ground ... you're nuts", Armstrong said.

Manchin was referring to legislation he and Sen.

Although the White House initially signaled support for background checks after mass shootings in August, it eventually backed away from that position.

But Sen Christopher S Murphy, D-Conn, who is also involved in the talks, said he was concerned the effort could collapse if Republicans demanded a package of measures, as opposed to a stand-alone vote on a background check bill.
