Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from New York, is pushing for stricter gun control measures in response to a recent series of shootings that took place in cities governed by Democrats during the Fourth of July weekend. These cities have consistently had high rates of homicides in the United States.

The shootings occurred in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Baltimore, Maryland; Lansing, Michigan; Wichita, Kansas; and Chicago, Illinois. President Joe Biden also addressed these incidents by advocating for several gun control laws, such as an assault weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity magazines, universal background checks, and the ability to hold gun manufacturers accountable for gun-related crimes. These proposals have been part of the Democratic agenda for years, with the aim of reinstating a comprehensive ban on assault rifles similar to the one implemented in the 1990s.

Schumer’s spokesperson mentioned that he is collaborating with his caucus to find a bipartisan solution to address gun violence. However, the chances of achieving this seem slim, as Republicans would face significant backlash if they were to change their stance on gun control. Furthermore, passing gun control legislation in the Senate requires the support of 60 votes, which is unlikely given the current political landscape, as Democrats hold only a narrow majority. Additionally, any gun control measures that manage to pass the Senate would encounter opposition in the Republican-controlled House.


  1. How about demanding everybody have a gun to give the people an equal chance to defend themselves from the brainwashed Democrats! Bet that would cut violence down in a hurry! And get rid of tons of Democrats!

  2. Mr. Schumer needs to walk down Harlem with out his ‘escort’ to experience what everyone else does….grabbing guns is not the issue, it’s HIM IN CONGRESS AND LEADING THE FLOCK ASTRAY.

  3. It’s a publicity ploy. He knows there is not a fat chance (or a slim chance) of getting such a Bill passed in both Houses.
