Members of Congress representing Central Texas weighed Wednesday whether gun policy changes should be made following the Sunday shooting in Las Vegas that killed 59 people and left more than 500 others injured.
Here’s what they said:
“Apparently this massacre has moved even the NRA to acquiesce in one narrow bump stock provision in order to bump consideration of any other gun safety measures. One and done is not enough. Republicans want much more than their pending bill to loosen restrictions on gun silencers. They are still trying to silence full, fair, bipartisan debate on meaningful ways to make our families safer, such as closing the gun show loophole.”
