Trump says progress being made on gun legislation

"It was a very engaging conversation", Sen.

"We are not taking these additional actions simply to respond to mass shootings", said Rep Jerry Nadler, D-NY, the committee chairman, adding, "We are acting because of the urgent need to respond to the daily toll of gun violence in our communities, whether they are mass shootings or not, whether or not they make headlines".

"I want to be clear".

The governors of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and DE are urging President Donald Trump to act on gun handle by supporting a common track record check out bill, and to outlaw assault weapons.

U.S. Democrats in Congress, looking to heighten their profile on the hot-button issue of gun control, moved forward on Tuesday with new measures aimed at curbing gun violence, after President Donald Trump huddled with Republican leaders. "We'll be reporting back in a fairly short period of time. Until that happens, all of this is theatrics", McConnell said.

The bipartisan Toomey-Manchin legislation failed to pass the Senate in 2013, and many Republicans continue to oppose the idea as an infringement on gun rights.

"Background checks on all gun sales are a common-sense solution with overwhelming public support and are a critical step toward stemming the gun violence epidemic in this country", the letter continued.

The Manchin-Toomey-Murphy effort would expand background checks to all commercial sales, including those at gun shows and online. There could be tweaks like to the exemption for family members selling to one another, to rural dwellers who have no alternative than to sell their weapons online. House Republican whip Steve Scalise, the No. 2 Republican in the chamber, later told reporters he did not know if Trump and Congress would ultimately come to an agreement on gun legislation.

When asked about the timeline for a presidential decision, specifically, Manchin said, "Tomorrow ..."

Manchin and Toomey teamed up six years ago with a gun background check bill. The president's statements on gun safety have been "all over the lot", Schumer said Monday. "I don't think there's any reason to give up yet and I don't intend to". We passed our bill in February.

Mr. Trump had expressed an interest in doing something on background checks in the wake of the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, last month that claimed the lives of more than 30 people, but has generally been more focused on the mental health side of the debate. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y), Ned Lamont (D-Conn.), John Carney (D-Del.), J.B. Pritzker (D-Ill.), Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich), Phil Murphy (D-N.J.), Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.), Kate Brown (D-Ore.), Tom Wolf (D-Pa.), Gina Raimondo (D-R.I.), Jay Inslee (D-Wash) and Newsom (D-Calif.).
