Senators in Washington see a chance for new gun legislation

Also available on the nbc app

Senator Chris Murphy led a bipartisan group of nine senators to work on a path forward for gun legislation with hopes to have a bill to propose after the Memorial Day recess. Uvalde’s Republican representative Tony Gonzales is pressing for legislation that would make schools tougher targets for mass shootings. While Congress is divided, a new poll shows 88 percent of those surveyed support mandatory background checks on all gun sales.
