Dem Senator Chris Murphy was tasked with leading bipartisan gun control after two tragic mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde.
The left has pushed for a ban on “Assualt Weapons.”
It doesn’t seem that gun control advocates are going to get their way. During an interview on CNN, Murphy said that the deal would not include an assault weapons ban or â€œcomprehensiveâ€ background checks.
He said the deal would include mental health funding, school safety measures and â€œmodest but impactfulâ€ gun control proposals.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), who is helping lead bipartisan gun reform talks in the Senate, said on Sunday that any potential deal on legislation would not include an assault weapons ban or â€œcomprehensiveâ€ background checks.
Murphy told CNN â€œState of the Unionâ€ co-anchor Jake Tapper that the bipartisan group of senators leading the talks following a recent string of high-profile mass shootings met again Saturday night, adding that negotiations are focused on mental health funding, school safety measures and â€œmodest but impactfulâ€ gun control proposals.
â€œWeâ€™re not going to do everything I want,â€ Murphy said.
â€œWeâ€™re not going to put a piece of legislation on the table thatâ€™s going to ban assault weapons, or weâ€™re not going to pass comprehensive background checks,â€ he said. â€œBut right now, people in this country want us to make progress. They just donâ€™t want the status quo to continue for another 30 years.
"We're closer than ever before. Let's see if we'll land it."
