Lawmakers struggle with gun violence legislation

WASHINGTON – Congress continues to grapple with how to best address the nation’s gun violence problem.

The House has acted with HR-8 a universal bipartisan background checks bill, but the Senate has yet to take up the bill, and in fact, has thwarted efforts by Democrats to do so.
