U.S. senators pushed for a compromise gun control bill on Tuesday, a day after the Senate failed to advance four gun measures following last week’s mass shooting in Orlando. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would schedule a vote on a bill by fellow Republican Senator Susan Collins that would prevent about 109,000 people on “no-fly” and other surveillance lists from purchasing guns. Collins said she expected a vote on the bill this week or next.
Even if the bill should pass, it doesn’t mean it has any shot in the House, which is an entirely different matter. The White House, meanwhile, as one would expect, was sharply critical of Senate Republicans regarding the gun control issue.
