A one-page document circulating among Republican members of Congress details what steps Attorney General William Barr’s Department of Justice is prepping for the White House on background checks — and for Second Amendment supporters, the results are a mixed bag.
The document was obtained by The Daily Caller, which reported that it’s been shopped among GOP congressmen in both houses to try to drum up support.
The move falls short of what most Democrats have been calling for, but didn’t induce unalloyed joy in Republicans, either.
According to The Daily Caller, the pitch was made by Attorney General Bill Barr and White House Legislative Affairs Director Eric Ueland.
Among the Republicans pitched to during a Tuesday meeting on Capitol Hill were North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows and Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri.

An update from the White House: Hogan Gidley tells me that just because WH legislative director Eric Ueland is among those pushing this on the Hill, it does NOT mean Trump himself has signed off on it. “Not even close.” https://t.co/BF7cGDdzqA
