WASHINGTON--The Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday advanced two gun-related measures, while action on an assault weapons ban and a cap on the number of bullets in a magazine has been postponed, as those two proposals face an uphill battle.
USA Today's Jackie Kucinich was at the hearing and her report is HERE.
From Kucinich: "A bill that would enhance background checks on prospective gun owners passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on a party-line, 10-8 vote. Another measure to improve safety at schools passed on a 14-4 vote."
