NAT’L – GUN CONTROL – After Newtown, Pulse, Vegas caused little change, gun-control advocates hope latest shootings push significant gun laws

Newtown. Charleston. Pulse. Parkland. Vegas. America’s most infamous mass shootings in the past decade have led to relatively little changes to prevent gun violence. And mass shootings continue – 251 and counting so far this year. Washington closed background reporting system loopholes, expanded federal aid for school safety and banned bump stocks in the aftermath of those massacres. But gun safety advocates say real solutions such as tighter background checks, an assault weapons ban and restrictions on high-capacity magazines were left off the table. Now the question is whether the separate mass killings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left a combined 31 dead and dozens more wounded over an early August weekend could be the spark that leads to significant change. Advocates remain skeptical given President Donald Trump’s ferocious defense of the Second Amendment and a Republican-controlled Senate that is strongly backed by gun rights groups. A POLITICO/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found a clear majority back an assault weapons ban, but only 39% said they think it’s very or somewhat likely Congress passes gun control legislation in the next year.  [full article]
