On the same day the Florida Legislature declined to take up a gun control bill, Democrats in the Arizona House of Representatives tried to get that chamber to vote on a measure to ban bump stocks.

"The country is waiting for us to act. The time is now. We have an obligation to take action. We have a mandate to take action. We have the authority to take action," said state Rep. Randy Friese, a Tucson Democrat, trying to convince his colleagues to take up the bill. He was not successful in that effort.

Here to talk about that, as well as some new comments from Gov. Doug Ducey on this issue, is Howie Fischer of Capitol Media Services.
