Klobuchar: ‘Vast Majority’ of Americans, Gun Owners Agree with No-Fly/No-Buy

‘We know that the vast majority of American people want to see better background checks and they also don’t want people that are on a terror watch list to go out and purchase a weapon’

SCUITTO: "You’d have to think that this would be the sweet spot, right? The political sweet spot on the gun issue wetting everyone’s fear. Both parties want to be tough on terrorists. They want to keep guns out of terrorists’ hands. That this would be the one that could get passed. But I have to — echoing — I’ve been talking to a lot of folks in Orlando and elsewhere. This sort of amazement that even now, 49 people dead in that club. If not now, then when? When is something going to get through?"
KLOBUCHAR: "That’s what we said after those dozens of children --"
SCUITTO: "In Newtown."
KLOBUCHAR: "Those little first-graders were killed in Newtown. And you just keep bringing it to the American people. We know that the vast majority of American people want to see better background checks and they also don’t want people that are on a terror watch list to go out and purchase a weapon. We also know the vast majority of gun owners agree with that. And so that’s what we are working to convince our colleagues we are open to talking with them, to negotiating. But I can tell you one thing, Jim, and that is that we don’t want to just pass something that doesn’t make any difference at all, that wouldn’t save a child, that wouldn’t save the next nightclub from being attacked."
