Gun Control

NPR's Brian Naylor reports that members of the Republican controlled House of Representatives say they'll pass new gun control legislation, when they return from their Memorial Day recess. The Senate already has passed a bill, which requires background checks on purchases at gun shows and a ban on the import of large capacity ammunition clips. The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime heard conflicting testimony yesterday about how to stop gun violence in schools.
