REPORT: GOP signals unease with Barr’s gun plan
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Senate Republicans are treading cautiously on a background checks plan floated by Attorney General William Barr that has been decried as a “non-starter” by the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Barr floated the proposal to GOP offices on Wednesday as the Senate inches toward doing something on gun control amid growing public pressure created by a seemingly endless string of mass shootings.
The article goes on to state the following:
But Barr was careful to tell Republicans that his memo on background checks, titled “Idea for New Unlicensed-Commercial-Sale Background Checks,” did not have the backing of President Trump.
Barr said he was just gathering ideas, adding, “the president has made no decision yet.”
SCOOP: @dailycaller has the document the White House and AG Bill Barr are circulating to Republicans to push gun control.
The proposed legislation is “consistent with Manchin-Toomey” and would expand background checks to unlicensed advertised sales. https://t.co/k06yH3sTcf
