Hastings Says There’s No Appetite for Gun Control in the US House

    

   Senate Democratic leader Harry Ried leader says “the hard work starts now” in the effort to toughen federal gun restrictions. He spoke after Senate gun-control supporters defeated an effort by conservatives to block debate on the matter. Meanwhile there is no appetite in the U.S. House for gun control legislation. that according to Fourth District Congressman Doc Hastings. Hastings tells KIT News ”I have a problem with a Senate proposal calling for uniform background checks, he says it’s a privacy issue of Americans owning a lawful product.”   Hastings also said ”If the Senate passes a bill, then we will look at it, but again, there’s little appetite in the house for any new gun laws.” President Barack Obama is highlighting the role played by the families of the Newtown shooting victims in pressing the Senate to move forward on gun control legislation.
