WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWS10) – In the wake of that deadly terror attack in Orlando the senate is expected to vote on gun control next week.

Democrats have proposed a so-called “no-fly, no buy” bill. It means if you’re on a terror watch list, which includes the TSA no-fly list, you shouldn’t be able to buy a gun.

Republicans are pushing for a 72-hour hold on any gun purchase by someone on a watch list.  That would give authorities time to review the sale and potentially block it.
