Senator Doug Jones seems to be the future for posibel gun control action….Maybe….
Before the Florida Governor’s signing off on a soft move for raising the age of purchases, adding a 3 day wait for the purchase?….
Democrats would mostly NOT talk about gun control at all…
We’ll see how this plays …..
Jones wants tighter background checks for gun sales and to raise the age requirement to purchase a gun from 18 to 21, and he thinks Alabamians are on the same page.
“People in Alabama love their guns, but they also love their children,” Jones told CNN Friday at an event at Birmingham’s Civil Rights Institute sponsored by the Faith and Politics Institute, NOLA.com reported. “And they like to be safe in theaters, and they like to be safe in churches, and I think there is common ground.”
Lawmakers are considering a host of proposals in the latest round of talks surrounding mass shootings after a 19-year-old gunman killed 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida, in February.
A Democrat from a deeply red state, Jones has his eye fixed on the middle of the political spectrum and hopes the gun debate can be a harbinger of greater bipartisan efforts on other issues…..
