Senate votes down 4 gun-control measures
The US Senate voted down four gun-control measures including bills that would have required background checks for firearms purchased online and at gun shows, and a ban on the sale of firearms to those on terrorist watch lists. Polls show most Americans are in favor of these moves. With Donald Trump being the most populist of the candidates, should he be championing these gun-control policies? To discuss gun control and the firing of Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, radio talk show host Mark Simone and conservative talk show host Andrea Kaye join ‘News with Ed’. When it comes to gun control, Kaye says: “Orlando was not about guns any more than September 11 was about box cutters, any more than Boston was about pressure cookers.”
