Political Talk

ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM-TV) – Welcome to Political Talk with Tom Santulli and Leslie Danks Burke.

Congress is back in session this week and gun legislation is under discussion. While the Democratic-controlled house is moving forward on bills aimed at preventing mass shootings, it’s unclear if any legislation will come up for a vote in the republican-controlled senate.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made clear that he will not hold any votes on the issue until president trump outlines what he will support.

Tom, with the senate on hold, until the president moves, do you think there’s any likelihood that gun legislation will be passed?

Leslie, what’s the democrats next move in this situation? That’s all we have time for on political talk. see you next Thursday!
