Gun control amendments up for vote in U.S. Senate

The last time the Senate held votes on gun legislation was last December

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – “No fly, not buy” is just one of the gun control amendments that the senate will vote on Monday.

The amendment would allow the government to delay a gun sale to a suspected terrorist for 72 hours, but require court action to block the sale permanently. The vote comes after a 14-hour long filibuster by senate Democrats last week following the shooting in Orlando.

Congressman Richard Neal spoke with 22News about the amendment, saying that “These proposals represent no threat to the sportsman or the hunter or the collector. It is a reasonable standard that we would like to see pursued so that we might prevent what happened in Orlando.”

The last time the Senate held votes on gun legislation was last December, one day after the mass shooting in San Bernardino. All four proposals were defeated.
