It appears they want a reinstatement of the expired assault weapons ban, as well as universal background checks for gun buyers.

 

U.S. Congresman Greg Walden of Oregon says the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut affected everyone, but he doesn't believe gun control will solve the problem.

 

"We're all heart sick about the Clackamas Towne Center shooting of the Connecticut shooting.  In each of these cases, mental health issues or suicde were the problem  And we passed a mental health initiative and the administration has to write the rules to implement. Why not do  your job, first of all?"

 

Other legislation being considered by the administration is strengthening mental health checks and stiffening penalties for those carrying guns near schools.
