The details of the legislation have not been made available, but Roll Call reports that Ryan told House Republicans about the vote during a June 30 conference call.
During the call, Ryan said it is “common sense that suspects on terror watch lists not be able to buy guns.” His announcement of this scheduled vote comes one week after House Democrats ended their 25-hour sit-in for gun control.
Breitbart News previously reported that a number of Senate Republicans are ready to support gun control as well. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) observed that mixing the language of gun control with the language of fighting terrorism has yielded GOP support from Senators like Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Pat Toomey (R-PA), and Susan Collins (R-Maine), among others.
For his part, continues to stress that House gun control has to contain “a provision [protecting] due process for people who may mistakenly be added to [no fly or terror watch] lists.” But it is important to note that Omar Mateen was not on such a list, so gun control based on such lists would have been impotent to stop him.
@Barry, I will just take you word for the ants!!! Ouch!!!
@Debra, yes he is acting like a Dem. It seems they get to be speaker and they go along with the Dems. It is time to get a backbone and stand for our rights!
Here... this is just for you :)
Thank you Barry, I think. It is so sad but being allergic to them didn't help at all. I am sure they are bad as bees stinging you maybe even worse. I do not want to personally check them out!!
Fellow Americans, it is time to demand the truth. The war on terrorism is a pretense to invade other countries and demise our freedom. This ill agenda was created by the war criminal George W. Bush, promoted by the main stream news media and supported by Obama, Hillary Clinton and the the neocons warmongers, the neo-liberalist - neo-colonizers that want to control the world economic.
The globalist - Neoliberal traitors want to demise our sovereignty, our Constitution and our God given freedom.
This is Neoliberalism. http://www.corpwatch.org/article.php?id=376
They want our guns, that is why the left is so anxious to import terrorists. They will use the terrorist acts to further their gun control agenda, they don't care about public safety or your personal well being. They want our guns so they can run rough shod over every aspect of our freedoms and liberties.,They can take whatever they want and there's not a damn thing we can do about it, MOULAN LAUBE !!!
Jean- they will never get our guns without a blood bath- we [ARE NOT] Australia, Britain or any other European Social Fascist country..! We are AMERICANS.. if there is ANY Americans that are Stupid enough to simply hand over their guns and ammunition with absolutely no Resistance - they deserve to be shot for treason..! The same goes for anyone who would sign a National or International gun registry..!
Yes, we may die - but that is what happens in WAR..!
There [IS NOT] one damned bit of difference between the foreign WARS we have fought and died for than it would be for this Current WAR that we are already in..!
There is not a doubt in my mind that an Armed Revolt is coming..!
This coming Election will more than likely set this into full motion..!
If Trump wins this election - the Left and Globalist, etc. WILL use every intimidation method possible..!
George Washington prophecy : and America will experience a great revival and rebirth, Check it out on you tube. The times they are a changing.
I belong to a Militia Site where all States are represented. You need to meet with like minded people and prepare and learn what you would do when times get tough or they try to take our guns. CA if in trouble and I hope they will get enough people to recall their State Congress. They take guns from the people but the law doesn't apply to those making the law. Does that tell you what is coming in other States? Be prepared and ready. If you are interested, I belong to Modern Militia Movement. We all need to work together is right. Together we can survive, separate we can't.
Obviously they don't know what they're up against , they are vastly outnumbered and we have the high ground.
Yes Juan I believe you are right. We have to band together and look out for our common good.

Common sense that suspects on terror watch lists should not be able to buy guns is not the issue. The issue will be what the democrats want to add to this common sense issue. Ryan is naïve and is being led down the yellow brick road by the wizard of oz. No one wants to give guns to people on the terror watch lists. Except Obama, Reid and Pelosi. They would give guns to anyone if it would make the Republicans look dumb. In fact they already have done so. Republicans are so mad at the Democrats that they make poor decisions in the hopes of exposing them for the fools they are. Simple vote for all members. Question: Should suspects on terror watch lists be able to buy guns. Vote Yes or NO. Let us know who voted yes and we will try to remove them from office in the near distance future.
