Schumer urges Trump to move forward with universal background checks
September 30, 2019 11:51 AM
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is challenging President Trump to move forward on universal background check legislation despite the House's recent announcement of an impeachment inquiry.
Schumer called out the president for meeting with NRA head Wayne LaPierre last week, where LaPierre reportedly told the president to "stop the games" on gun legislation.
A bill for universal background checks was passed in the House earlier this year.
