SHOOTINGS IN DAYTON AND EL PASO REKINDLING THE ONGOING DEBATE ON GUN LEGISLATION.. THANKS FOR STICKING WITH US.. I’M MARY STACKHOUSE. WHILE THERE ARE MAJOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS ON THE ISSUE, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS HOPEFUL ALL SIDES CAN COME TOGETHER TO PUSH THROUGH “TOUGHER LAWS ON BACKGROUND CHECKS”. FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT MARK MEREDITH REPORTS. 3 0:41 – 0:55 SEN. KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE1:33 – 1:40 MARK MEREDITH / FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT / WASHINGTON, DC PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE’S SPOKEN WITH BOTH DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS — AS WELL AS THE N-R-A — AND THAT HE BELIEVES FOLLOWING LAST WEEKEND’S TWO MASS SHOOTINGS, NOW’S THE TIME TO DISCUSS EXPANDING BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR GUN PURCHASES.TRUMP says: “I think we could get something really good done. I think we could have some really meaningful background checks. We don’t want people that are mentally ill people that are are sick. We don’t want them having guns” THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS OPEN TO NEW GUN CONTROL LAWS AFTER THE SHOOTING IN PARKLAND FLORIDA IN 2018. HOWEVER, THE WHITE HOUSE LATER PULLED ITS SUPPORT FOR THE EFFORT. ONE 20-20 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL SAID TODAY THE PRESIDENT IS NOT SERIOUS ABOUT ADDRESSING THE ISSUE OF GUN VIOLENCE.GILLIBRAND says: “He has no empathy for the suffering and concern families are facing. Because if he did, he’d stand up to the N-R-A, he’d ban the assault rifles, he’d ban he large magazines, he’d pass universal background checks and he’d demand Mitch MccCnnell go back into Congress to get that done.” SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL SAYS HE HAS NO PLANS TO CALL CONGRESS BACK TO WORK NOW, BUT, THAT HE DOES PLAN TO ALLOW A SENATE DEBATE ON GUN CONTROL TO GO FORWARD NEXT MONTH. MCCONNELL SAYS HE’S ASKED KEY COMMITTEE CHAIRMEN TO DISCUSS WHAT A BI- PARTISAN GUN CONTROL BILL MAY LOOK LIKE. HE HAS REJECTED EXPANDING BACKGROUND CHECKS IN THE PAST. THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION HAS COME OUT AGAINST THESE LATEST PROPOSALS BEING PUSHED BY SOME LAWMAKERS WRITING QUOTE, “The proposals being discussed by many would not have prevented the horrific tragedies in El Paso and Dayton. Worse, they would make millions of law abiding Americans less safe and less able to defend themselves and their loved ones.” PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS THE N-R-A’S VIEWS ON GUN-RIGHTS WILL BE “FULLY REPRESENTED AND RESPECTED” AS THE DEBATE ON GUN CONTROL PLAYS OUT IN CONGRESS.
