Gun Control Talk Begins at Nation’s Capitol

Jeremy Edwards

WASHINGTON (AP) — A year after the Senate scuttled President Barack Obama’s drive for new firearms restrictions, congressional gun control supporters are significantly winnowing their 2014 legislative agenda.

That’s because of a lack of Senate votes, opposition by the Republican-run House and Democratic worries about this November’s elections. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — a Democrat — says he needs additional votes before revisiting a proposed expansion of gun sale background checks that the Senate derailed last April.

That has left advocates of gun curbs hoping Reid will allow votes on more modest proposals. One proposal by Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar would add convicted stalkers to the criminals barred from acquiring guns. But don’t hold your breath expecting proposed gun restrictions to reach the Senate floor before Election Day.
