Pelosi, allies seek to keep gun debate focused on McConnell
By Mike Lillis and Scott Wong - 08/06/19 02:38 PM EDT

Allies of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are rushing to her defense as a small but vocal group of Democrats push to bring the House back to Washington amid the long August recess to address gun violence.

The lawmakers argue that Democrats already passed a pair of gun bills earlier in the year and fear that ending the recess early to tackle separate proposals would erode pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to take up the background check legislation at the forefront of the Democrats’ gun-reform agenda.


The strategic split has emerged following a pair of mass shootings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend, which led to the deaths of more than 30 people, injured scores more and reignited the ferocious debate over the nation’s gun laws.
