Ahead of Taking Over House, Democrats Push for Gun Control in Spending Bill

Roll Call has the story here. Democrats are not happy with a rider in the House version of the FY 19 Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations bill they say would block enforcement of an Obama era requirement that gun sellers in four southwestern border states report to BATFE when an individual buys two or more specified semiautomatic rifles "known to be favored by Mexican drug cartels within a five-day period." They also also want to add a provision allowing the attorney general to block firearm purchases by individuals on a terror watch list (the so-called "no fly no buy" list).
