In D.C., Dayton Mayor Calls On Senate To Pass Gun Bill

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley is calling on majority U.S. Senate Republicans to pass gun reform legislation.


Whaley was in Washington D.C. yesterday along with Mayors of other cities to demand action on a universal background check bill. Several congressional Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer joined the call.


Pelosi and Schumer sent a letter to President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pointing to recent mass shootings as the reason why the legislation is needed.
