  • 2020 Democrats are talking gun control. Will they propose ideas that would actually work

Trump is insisting he supports stronger background checks after shooters in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio killed more than 30 people and said Tuesday he thinks Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., wants to take action. Though there have been more mass shootings than days this year, McConnell's aides have reportedly let it be known that their boss doesn't intend to endorse any gun control legislation.

Trump told reporters in New Jersey on Tuesday that he's "convinced that Mitch wants to do something" on guns. Some options on the table include universal background checks of gun purchasers and semi-automatic weapon bans.

A lot of Republicans don't.

Publically McConnell has only committed to launching into a discussion of the issue with the GOP-controlled Senate returns from recess next month.

The White House has threatened that Trump would veto that bill, which the Democratic-led House approved largely along party lines.

Trump provided no specifics and it was unclear how tough a background check measure they might consider.

In a bid to keep pressure on the White House to respond to mass shootings, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer is preparing to ask that President Trump withdraw a request for $5 billion in border wall funding and redirect the money toward programs that aim to reduce gun violence and white supremacist extremism.

"The dual scourges of gun violence and violent white supremacist extremism in this country are a national security threat plain and simple, and it's time the Trump administration and Republicans in congress starting treating them as such", the New York Democrat said in a statement.
