Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, on Sunday called for passage of legislation, including an expanded background check bill, and other gun control measures in the wake of mass shootings in Dayton, and in El Paso, Texas.
In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Brown said Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., “should bring us back into session on Monday.”
“The House of Representatives passed a background check,” he said. “We can fly back into Washington on Monday morning. We can pass the background check bill and people could fly back and be home for dinner and the president needs to sign this bill."
“We know that background checks work,” he continued. “We know that a ban on assault weapons worked. It was bipartisan and expired and we haven't renewed it. Those are the first two things we should do and in that sense it can finally put the country on the right path with gun violence.”
“Do it quickly and show the country for gosh sakes that the people representing them in Washington don't always kow-tow to the gun lobby,” he added.
