Senate to start hearings on gun plans
WASHINGTON – The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Wednesday he'll begin hearings in two weeks on gun control proposals.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said he doesn't know if an assault weapons ban can pass the Senate but he said there are some measures that can, such as improved background checks.
"There are some who say nothing will pass. I disagree with that," Leahy told students at Georgetown University Law Center. "What I'm interested in is what we can get."
