Democrats just won’t give up when it comes to gun control. The new Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, wants screenings to be made for all gun sales, The Hill reports.

"It is outrageous that gun buyers evade the background-check system every day, even in broad daylight," Wasserman Schultz said Monday at a gun control rally in Miami. "While we likely cannot end all gun violence, we certainly can do much, much better. We have laws on the books designed to keep guns out of the hands of those that should not have them. We just need to close the loopholes and improve the information available to law enforcement."
