In the wake of recent mass shootings... Senate Democrats force votes on some gun control proposals.

FOX News' Jared Halpern has more on Capitol Hill:

As part of a Republican package to repeal swaths of the Affordable Care Act, Democrats tried to attach an amendment that would bar anyone on a terror watch list from purchasing firearms...

(Reid) "It would deprive people of their due process rights under the constitution."

(Cornyn) "Mr. President, there is nothing, nothing, unconstitutional about keeping a terrorists from buying a gun."

Texas Republican John Cornyn sparring with Democratic Leader Harry Reid, another proposal that would have expanded background checks on some gun sales also failed.
