Local Reaction to Gun Control Legislation

Posted: Updated:

Legislation aimed at curbing gun violence is moving forward in Washington.

Today, Senate Democrats overcame the threat of a filibuster, clearing the way for a debate on gun control.

Conservatives tried to block the gun proposals from reaching the floor.

The legislation calls for tighter federal background checks, strengthened gun trafficking laws, and increased school safety aid.

Today, 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Eric Davis caught up with a gun show organizer to see if background checks would affect how they do business here in northern Michigan.
