"Instead of people yelling at each other, we have got to come together on commonsense approaches which, in fact, the vast majority of the American people support," said Sanders, who represents a rural state with few gun laws. He added that there is "widespread support to ban semiautomatic assault weapons, guns which have no other purpose but to kill people."


"Republicans controlling Congress have shown scant interest in restricting guns and the Democratic effort has little chance of success. But their drive could keep the issue alive during next year's elections, driving up support from sympathetic voters and contributors while complicating GOP senators' re-election campaigns in some closely divided states."

"Democrats said their effort would include broadening federal background checks, now required only for sales by federally licensed firearms dealers, to cover all purchases at gun shows and online. A bipartisan version of that plan, opposed by the National Rifle Association, was blocked in 2013 by Republicans and a few Democrats, months after the fatal shooting of 20 students and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut."

Remember, EVERY Democrat that gets elected adds weight to their cause.
