U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said he wants legislation that would require instant background checks for the sale of gun ammunition. He is expected to take up the proposal once Congress reconvenes.
"They can be done in 30 seconds," he said. "The vast majority are, and they would prevent people who should not have ammunition or firearms from actually buying it."
This would be in addition to the national push to ban assault weapons. But, Blumenthal admits there's one slice of the demographic that continues to slip through the cracks.
"We need to have a strategy on mental health," he said.
