Senate Republicans Back NRA in Opposing Gun Ban

U.S. Senate Republicans said bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines aren’t the proper response to the Dec. 14 killing of 20 elementary school children and six adults in Newtown, Connecticut.

“We need real solutions to a significant problem in our country, and I’m not sure passing another law in Washington is going to actually find a real solution,” Senator John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican, said on “Fox News Sunday.”
