Senate could debate gun control this week

There has been a call for limits on the sale of assault rifles and multiple round magazines of ammunition.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (ABC NEWS/WSYR-TV) - The Senate could debate gun control measures as early as this week.

President Barack Obama is pushing for tougher laws in the wake of several mass shootings.

There has been a call for limits on the sale of assault rifles and multiple round magazines of ammunition.

Some Democrats in Congress want a gun control bill that includes universal background checks.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid moved a comprehensive gun control package to the calendar last month.

Some Republican members say they plan to filibuster the bill while others think there should be a full debate.

President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Michelle Obama all have events scheduled this week to advocate for the administrations gun control proposals.
