House Democrats consider pushing gun control this year
House Democrats are considering attaching an amendment to an appropriations bill that would force stricter background checks for gun purchases.
Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer said top Democrats are in “discussions” on an amendment but have not decided what the language would say specifically.
He said the amendment would likely be an effort to strike the “prohibition on requiring gun sellers to report on multiple sales on assault-type weapons.” . . .
