    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and his GOP leadership team on Monday decided to punt on any gun-related legislation until after the long summer recess. The latest shootings across the country led Republican leaders to believe that debating and voting on contentious gun control bills now would only inflame an already violent situation. The decision means the House, which has been wrestling with gun control legislation for weeks, will not consider bills to prevent suspected terrorists from obtaining guns until at least after its seven-week recess, which is set to begin at the end of this week.

    WASHINGTON -- When the Senate voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to kill a bill that would have freed gun manufacturers and distributors from liability in many civil lawsuits, several gun control measures the Senate included also died.

Lieberman was one of the sponsors of legislation that would require background checks for weapon sales at gun shows. The Senate voted for it as an amendment to the gun liability bill. It also approved an amendment that would...
