GOP leadership hints snub of House Republicans to support gun control

The GOP leadership establishment in the U.S. House of Representatives has hinted it may snub the rank and file Republican members of the House by stating they may seek to pass gun control measures without a majority of support from House Republicans.

The stunning announcement came from House Majority Whip, U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who told CNN on Sunday, according to The Hill, that House Speaker John Boehner wants a major gun control bill to receive bipartisan approval even if it means the majority of House Republicans oppose it.

Such a bill would be fairly easy to pass even if only a minority of Republicans support it, as long as an overwhelming majority of Democrats vote in favor of the measure.
