Lobbyists launch coalition to solve K Street’s diversity problem

GUN CONTROL ADVOCATES HOME IN ON THE SENATE: “Gun control groups are now focusing all of their lobbying efforts on the Senate following House passage of two major bills last week that garnered some GOP support,” The Hill’s Alex Gangitano reports. While Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has vowed to bring the bills to the floor, “advocates face a familiar uphill battle in trying to win over enough Republicans.”

— “Still, proponents are optimistic that a Democratic-led Senate, combined with an ally in the Oval Office and a weakened National Rifle Association (NRA), will help get gun control legislation passed for the first time in decades. ‘We have a slim gun violence prevention majority, but we have the majority, which we know includes eight Republicans,’ said Brian Lemek, executive director of Brady PAC.”
