The Wall Street Journal: Republican lawmakers feeling heat on guns in wake of Florida school shooting

WASHINGTON — Some congressional Republicans said Sunday they could support some gun-safety bills, after coming under pressure from students who survived a mass shooting at a Florida high school last week.

The lawmakers couldn’t say when, or if, GOP House and Senate leaders would put legislation on the floor, an indication of the high hurdles facing gun-related legislation. Democrats said they didn’t expect any action would be taken in Congress this year.

Speaking on the Sunday morning news shows, several Republican lawmakers said they would support expanded background checks or a ban on bump stocks, devices that allow a shooter to fire more rapidly.
