Leahy Gives Signals On Background Checks, Weapons Ban

“As chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., will oversee any legislation on gun control that makes its way to the Senate floor. At the first in a series of congressional hearings on the issue Wednesday, his line of questioning suggested that expanded background checks and closing the so-called gun show loophole will be top priorities—and perhaps the only ones that stand a chance in the full Senate,” according to National Journal’s Rebecca Kaplan report.
