( – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) stated that following the most recent mass shootings, which resulted in at least 10 deaths, the Senate would attempt to pass gun control legislation. The shootings took place on the weekend ahead of Independence Day in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Fort Worth, Lansing, and Wichita.

Last year, following a round of mass shootings, lawmakers agreed to pass gun reforms and legislation; now they are considering additional measures. Since the first week of July, the Gun Violence Archive has counted 20 mass shootings, resulting in 19 deaths and dozens of injuries.

However, for any gun control legislation to pass here, there would need to be an increase in support from the Republican Party. Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, in an op-ed for Forbes, argued that policy changes needed to be considered, especially following the recent rounds of mass shootings and the increase in such incidents. In the op-ed, he even pushed for a federal assault weapon ban and increased mandatory background checks for firearm purchases.

Polls have also shown that there has been a switch in how suburban voters are now viewing gun laws, with many of them wanting tougher gun laws. All In Together, a nonprofit women’s civic education group, as well as Echelon Insights, found in a poll conducted in May that among women voters, guns were one of the primary points of concern. In fact, 61 percent of Republican women stated that they wanted stricter gun control when it came to certain firearms, while 41 percent of Republican men also supported more gun control.
