McConnell Questions Committment of Democratic Leadership to Passing Gun Bill

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is questioning whether Democrats, including Majority Leader Harry Reid, really want to see gun control legislation pass this year.

Politico reports McConnell, a Republican from Louisville, said it was "unclear yet as to whether the majority leader wants to bring a gun measure to the floor."

Reid dismissed the notion, saying a gun bill will come out of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Reid wouldn't say whether or not he supports an assault weapons ban proposed by California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein.
