After four gun control proposals failed in the Senate Monday, a coalition of Republicans and Democrats have emerged, proposing a compromise. Hear from the group, including Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Nelson (D-FL), as to why they support this as a simple solution to improving safety in America. The deal suggests individuals listed as too dangerous to fly on an airplane would be prohibited from buying firearms, but Americans can appeal denials to the courts-- leaving the burden of proof on the government. Additionally, if anyone listed on the broader terrorism screening database in the last five years buys a firearm, the FBI would be alerted. Courtesy of C-SPAN
