Congress could soon return from its summer recess after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer demanded that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell bring back members of Congress for a special session to address emergency gun control legislation.
His main object would be to gut the Second Amendment.
BREAKING: After El Paso and Dayton shooting attacks, Minority Leader Schumer says Majority Leader McConnell "must call the Senate back for an emergency session to put the House-passed universal background checks legislation on the Senate floor for debate and a vote immediately."

So far, McConnell has not responded. But the pressure is mounting and that could change.
AOC is now also calling for a special session:
What Congress can do about exploding white supremacist terrorism: pass gun safety laws, name WS as terrorism in statute, &more.
The House passed gun safety bills mos ago. McConnell refuses to hold a VOTE, let alone pass them.
He needs to call the Senate back now & do so. #HR8

From Bearing Arms:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is demanding Majority Leader Mitch McConnell bring back members of Congress for a special session to pass HR8, the so-called “universal background check” bill passed by the house earlier this year. …
What we do know is the HR8, the federal universal background check law, is completely unenforceable, at least as a pro-active crime fighting tool. Can Senator Schumer explain how law enforcement would find out about a private transfer or sale of a firearm that took place without a background check? We’re talking about private party sales here. How would the federal government even be aware of such a sale? …
Obviously if Democrats do get a special session of Congress, they won’t be restricting their demands to “universal background checks”. Already we’ve seen a number of Democrats, including Senator Kamala Harris, demand a ban on semi-automatic long guns.

… Anti-gun politicians will be offering empty promises of easy solutions, and gun control groups will be mobilizing as many Americans as they can to demand those unenforceable (and in many cases unconstitutional) laws be put on the books. …
Oh, and Kamala Harris isn’t the only one openly calling for nationwide gun confiscation. Other Democrats are now falling in line.
