Reid: Not Enough Votes for Gun Control Legislation

No plan to bring any bills to Senate floor


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday gun control legislation doesn't have the votes to be approved by the Senate.

Reid said he, as a result, has no plans to bring a gun control bill to the floor in the wake of a rampage at the Washington Navy Yard during which a gunman killed 12 people.

"We're going to move this up as quickly as we can, but we've got to have the votes first," Reid told reporters. "We don't have the votes. I hope we get them, but we don't have them now."
