Republicans have no idea what Trump wants them to do on guns

Cuomo joins 11 governors in demanding Trump and GOP act on ‘common sense’ gun reforms

Cuomo joins 11 governors in demanding Trump and GOP act on ‘common sense’ gun reforms

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.

The committee considered the legislation in the wake of an August in which 53 people were killed in mass shootings in the US, according to Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler of NY.

President Donald Trump is set to get briefed by aides Thursday on options for new gun control measures but it's not yet clear how quickly he'll decide, a White House official said. With Congress back in session this week, Republicans and Democrats have been pointing fingers, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accusing Democrats of engaging in "theatrics", and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warning that "people are dying" while Senate Republicans refuse to act.

The committee also voted to advance a bill to prevent individuals convicted of misdemeanor hate crimes from possessing firearms.

"It's really 'Gun Sense, ' if you think about it", Trump said, suggesting that any bill lawmakers come up with should bear that name. Many Republicans say that isn't something they would support.

Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania and Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Chris Murphy of CT cautioned that they did not win Trump's endorsement of their background check bill during their 40-minute telephone conversation.

Democrats are demanding a Senate vote on House-passed legislation that would expand background checks to all private sales.

The outreach is the latest effort to try to traverse yet another impasse on gun control legislation. Although senators are talking with the White House this week, the Trump administration previously issued a veto threat for the bills.

"That will not stop this committee", Nadler said of the Senate opposition at the beginning of the markup.

The House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday advanced three more gun control measures along party lines, including a bill that would ban high-capacity ammunition magazines that allow rapid firing without reloading.

Later, the congresswoman said, "I truly believe that the moral crisis is that the guns have become our God", adding, "Guns have become the means by which we solve all of our problems, have become our authority".

Judges could take away firearms without notice or an opportunity to be heard in court, and on a low standard of evidence, Collins said.
