Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) responded to President Trump’s push to ban flavored e-cigarettes on Wednesday by calling for the administration to take similar action on assault rifles.
After Trump announced his administration would seek to prohibit the sale of all non-tobacco flavors of e-cigarettes, Sanders posted on Twitter urging the administration to ban AR-15s following several recent mass shootings.
Democrats are seeking to raise pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Trump to reform gun laws, though it’s unclear what legislation Trump might support.
Now do AR-15s. https://t.co/HNJmxIuCrr
