Senate Democrats say they will try forcing a vote on making it harder for suspected terrorists or people on the government's terror watch lists to buy guns.

Top Democrats told reporters of their plans Monday. That was a day after a gunman who'd twice come to the FBI's attention attacked an Orlando nightclub, killing 49 victims and wounding over 50 others.

Democrats said they would offer the same legislation that the Senate rejected last December by California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. It would let the government block guns sales to people on terrorism watch lists or to those it suspects of possible terror activities.

The vote could come this week.

Spokesman Donald Stewart said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will comment on Orlando when the Senate convenes Monday.
