Mother Jones reports:
House Democrats plan to prioritize a bill that will require a background check for every gun sale, according to multiple sources close to the matter.
The legislation represents an aggressive shift in strategy by Democrats and their gun reform allies, who in previous years had tended to pursue more modest background check bills that would have exempted large numbers of gun purchases.
Wile the bill will almost certainly pass the House, there’s little evidence to suggest Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will bring it up for a vote or that President Donald Trump would be willing to sign it.
Every year millions of guns are purchased online or at gun shows without any background check.
