Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid vows that Democrats will "force" a vote on a gun control amendment in the wake of recent mass shooting incidents.
In a tweet Thursday, the Nevada Democrat declared:
Reid has introduced an amendment that would be part of the GOP package to repeal Obamacare.
Reid's amendment would make it illegal to sell or give a gun to someone who has been charged with blocking, or trying to block, someone from getting reproductive care with force or the threat of force.
It's an uphill battle at best; Congress has been unable to build support for toughening the nation's gun-control laws.
After Wednesday's mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., Reid, in a statement,
declared gun violence has become a "cancer" on the nation.
"We are better than this," Reid said. "This madness must stop."
