A Kentucky congressman behind an amendment that would undo the District of Columbia's strict gun control laws says he doesn't think it will become law.
Still, he called the amendment an opportunity for "an important vote" on gun rights.
Twenty Democrats joined 221 Republicans in voting for the amendment. Four GOP lawmakers voted against it. Congress has the final say over the District's local laws and budget.
