Nadler: We’ll Vote on Gun Bills Before Labor Day

On MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show Thursday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told host Rachel Maddow it’s “more likely than not” that the committee will vote on gun proposals before Labor Day.

“[W]e’re very actively considering calling the committee back into session before — during the district work period to consider bills on banning high-capacity magazines, banning assault rifles, certain provisions to make sure that people convicted of hate crimes or domestic violence can’t get guns, and various other suggestions have been made by our members and others,” Nadler said.

“So, I think we — more likely than not, we’ll have a committee meeting to vote [on] some of these bills before the end of the — before Labor Day — before the end of the district work period.”

This urgency stems from last weekend’s mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, which sparked another round of Democrat demands for more gun control, despite the fact that more laws will not stop mass shootings.
