White House Vows Action on Gun Control; Details Scarce

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call
Protesters want action on gun control, and some in Congress have echoed that sentiment, although policy specifics are hard to come by in the halls of the Capitol.

But its not clear how many other moderate Democrats will join the West Virginia senator, who wont face the voters again until 2018, in a push for new laws. In 2014, Democrats play defense in 20 seats many of them in red states such as Alaska, Alabama, Louisiana and Montana.

One of those incumbents, Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus of Montana, is the only Senate Democrat to receive an A+ rating from the NRA.
