A new report concludes that gun control might not play as big a role in the upcoming presidential election as some think.

Stuart Rothenberg writes in The Washington Post that gun control, on the heels of the Orlando terror attack and a sit-in conducted by Democrats on Capitol Hill, will likely stay where it's been in recent elections: on the fringe.

The majority of voters, Rothenberg writes, will select a candidate based solely on their party. The others will weigh candidates' views on a variety of issues, a list that includes gun control. Where Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton lie on the issue of gun control will not necessarily determine who wins the presidency, Rothenberg concludes.

Trump and Clinton, however, voiced their opinions on guns after 49 people were killed in an Orlando nightclub last month.

Clinton called for stricter laws on guns, while Trump would like to see some restrictions put in place — such as banning the sale of guns to people on FBI terror watch lists.
