DC GUN LAWS
Congressman who introduced amendment on DC gun laws says it likely won't become law

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, July 17, 2014 3:59 PM EDT
WASHINGTON


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.

The GOP-controlled House on Wednesday approved Republican Rep. Thomas Massie's amendment. It would undo the District's gun control laws by blocking the city from spending any money to enforce them. A day after he got the language approved in a spending bill, Massie said he suspects it will fail in the Senate.

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.
