US Senate to vote on gun control as Trump softens stance

Mourners hold up signs during a vigil in Washington, DC on June 12, 2016, in reaction to the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, FloridaDemocrats claimed victory Thursday after persuading the US Senate to hold a vote next week on legislation that would bar terror suspects from buying firearms. The debate — with the potential to turn vicious in a contentious presidential election year — comes with Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump signaling he could back moves to prevent people on terror watch lists or no-fly lists from buying guns. The possible breakthrough in the Republican-controlled Senate could end a years-long logjam on how to reduce US gun violence, following last weekend’s massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida — the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
