WASHINGTON (AP) — Newly ascendant Democrats are promising congressional action on gun control amid a rash of mass shootings, including a late-night assault at a California bar that killed 12 people. Still, gun control advocates believe they have the political momentum to make guns a central issue next year. Spending to support candidates backing tougher gun control surged this year, even as campaign spending by the NRA declined. But if the House votes to approve gun control and a bill is pending in the Senate, "it's harder to ignore," Brown said. Deutch said gun control opponents would be wise to heed Tuesday's results.
