NY Senate Republicans Block Effort to Pass More Gun Regulations

NY Senate Republicans Block Effort to Pass More Gun Regulations NY Senate Republicans Block Effort to Pass More Gun Regulations

Trump's suggestion to take guns away drew immediate criticism from Republicans. That's an increase - in a short period of time - from October 2017, when NPR conducted a similar survey in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting.

President Donald Trump is convening a bipartisan group of lawmakers to find ways of addressing gun violence.

The poll also found that while almost every gun policy was supported by a majority of both Republicans and Democrats, the one exception was arming teachers. The program has support from 94% of Democrats, 83% of independents and 67% of Republicans.

Democrats flipped their 38th and 39th Republican-held state legislative seats since President Donald Trump took office Tuesday, with wins in New Hampshire and CT state House races.

The president turned to Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn, among others, to suggest adding a variety of such steps to a much more limited bipartisan bill the Texan is promoting. "And that's in contrast to a lot of Republican elected officials, who have taken a much more Second Amendment absolutist stance".

Members of both parties were highly uncertain on Wednesday about whether Trump would maintain his embrace of gun-control proposals that are bitterly opposed by the National Rifle Association and anathema to many conservatives on Capitol Hill, including expanded background checks and raising the age limit to buy certain rifles to 21.

The "Fix NICS" bill, similar to one approved a year ago in the House, would reward federal agencies and states that utilize the background check system, and penalize those that don't properly report required records used to determine whether someone can legally buy a gun.

That isn't a new high mark overall or for the Trump administration's tenure, but the 13% who feel things are going "very well" is the highest to say so in CNN polling back to at least 2004.

"They have great power over you people".

Trump used the televised meeting to pointedly challenge fellow Republicans to defy the NRA, despite the influential pro-gun group's vocal support for his campaign. "You can't be petrified".

"I like a merger", the businessman-turned-politician declared.

Sen. Tom Croci (R-Sayville), who was acting as temporary Senate president on Wednesday, declared the amendments "not germane" to the organ-donation bill, blocking a vote.

Democrats are balking at swift passage of the Fix NICS bill absent a chance to pass more expansive gun control measures.

"It's up to us in NY", said Sen.

But the intensity for congressional action lies with the Democrats - 93 percent of whom want more action, compared to 68 percent among Republicans.

"We are here to deliver a clear message: enough is enough", said Sen. Crime/gun violence is now the No. 1 issue worrying Americans.

"What they want to do is say that this is a problem of shootings in schools", Cuomo said during a conference call with reporters.

Roughly two-thirds, or 63 per cent, said guns will be an important factor in their vote in November Midterm elections, the poll showed. There was no mention of gun control.

But the political winds may be shifting.

And there are signs the NRA's influence among voters may be declining.

He called the state SAFE act passed in 2013 "the most comprehensive gun safety bill in the country". "It's not a problem of shooting in schools exclusively".

The poll was conducted from February 27-28 with a survey sample of 1,005 adults across the country, chosen randomly from Ipsos's online panel. Results for the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points, it is larger for subgroups.
