Senate races to craft bipartisan gun bill this week — and runs into obstacles

Senate races to craft bipartisan gun legislation this week and runs into obstacles around issues like red flag laws.

WASHINGTON — Sen. John Cornyn, the leading Republican negotiator of a bipartisan agreement to combat gun violence, said Monday that the 10 GOP senators who signed onto the framework are "rock solid" behind the cause.

But winning their support for the broad contours of a deal is now looking like it was easy part. Keeping their support intact for the eventual legislation will be much harder.

Senators are now racing to finish writing the bill this week in hopes of passing it next week before a scheduled July 4 recess — and they're running into complicated challenges.

Senators work on new gun deal frameworkJune 13, 202201:47The high-wire act facing them requires writing a bill that can satisfy Democrats’ demand to take meaningful strides without alienating Republicans, who are deeply sensitive to fears that any sort of action could cause a weakening of gun rights. The goal of GOP leaders is to get about half their 50-member caucus on board with the bill.

The biggest hurdles so far are "red flag" provisions — specifically, assuring due process before gun rights are stripped from dangerous individuals — and background checks for Americans aged 18 to 21 that open the door to accessing juvenile records.
