Unified Dems Press Trump, GOP on Curbing Guns

August 13, 2019, 11:44 AM

Democrats are using public outrage over this month's mass shootings in Texas and Ohio to try pressuring President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on curbing gun violence and investigating white supremacists.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's office says the New York Democrat wants Trump to divert $5 billion he's sought to build a wall along the southern border to instead investigate domestic terrorism and research gun violence.

Urged to 'Do Something,' Ohio Governor Backs 'Red Flag' LawThe Republican governor proposed a law that would allow judges to temporarily confiscate guns from individuals believed by police or their relatives to be a danger, and to provide them with mental health treatment

No. 2 House Democrat Steny Hoyer and colleagues planned a Tuesday news conference to press McConnell to allow a vote on House-passed legislation requiring background checks for most gun purchases.
Trump and McConnell have long opposed many gun control measures.
Both have expressed an openness to unspecified curbs since 31 people were killed in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
