After mass shootings in a Colorado theater and a Connecticut elementary school last year, the push for gun control was on every news channel and more importantly on Congress’ agenda.
This week is the six-month anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut and some are wondering has Congress put a hold on passing stricter gun laws or completely took it off the agenda?
Last April, every gun control proposal brought before the Senate was shot down. The question now is will the proposals be reworded and brought before the Senate again in hopes to get it passed? Or will new proposals or some other form of action come about?
In an article in the Washington Post, Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake (R) said, “I don’t think they’re going to come back on it.” “They’ve got a long way to go. And frankly, I just don’t see people who voted against it moving on their position.”
Is Congress all talk or will they actually help to tighten gun laws?
