Republicans and Democrats have continued to circumvent gun control after shooting at an elementary school in Texas killed 21 people and each proposed a very different solution.

Kinzinger, one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, said last year 10 after some members of his party essentially labeled him an exile. He said he would not run for reelection in the month.
Democratic Party 10 Republicans Vote on their side to proceed with the measures. Other Republicans who may be in favor of some restrictions include Senator Susan Collins in Maine, Senator Mitt Romney in Utah, and Senator Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania.
