GUN CONTROL: Iowa Senators Split

Tougher gun control measures moved forward on Capitol Hill Thursday.

A handful of republicans joined democrats in a 68 to 31 vote to begin the debate.

Not surprisingly, Iowa’s senators are split on the issue, Senator Harkin voted for, while Senator Grassley voted against the measure.

The current proposal would expand background checks for gun sales and strengthen mental health and school safety programs.

Separate amendments on assault-style weapons and magazine capacity will also come up, the debate is expected to last for weeks.
