Much like yesterday’s meeting with a selection of the nation’s top faith leaders (and Al Sharpton), the president’s meeting today with 16 mayors was closed to the press. According to a statement from the White House, the president “vowed to continue doing everything in his power to combat gun violence through executive action and to press Congress to pass common-sense reforms like expanding the background check system and cracking down on gun trafficking.”
It might sound like an empty tease, but following tonight’s Fox News special on the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Bret Baier let viewers know there’s still more to the story, even months later. For one, there are survivors who still haven’t told their stories.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is promising a vote on gun control legislation tomorrow afternoon, including universal background checks, a magazine capacity limit and an assault weapon ban. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) also promised to offer an amendment permitting concealed weapons to be carried across state lines.
