House GOP delays gun vote after own members object

House GOP leaders have decided to postpone a vote on an “anti-terrorism” package amid Republican objections over amendments and concerns about rewarding Democrats for their daylong gun control “sit-in” on the House floor.

A roll call had been expected Wednesday on a House GOP gun proposal responding to the massacre in Orlando last month. Republicans now say they hope to take up the legislation by the end of the week.

The House Rules Committee also scuttled consideration of rules governing debate for the measure, Rules Chairman Pete Sessions told reporters.

“It’s a delay,” the Texas Republican said upon exiting a leadership meeting in Speaker Paul Ryan’s office. “We’re going to wait. Enough members don’t have enough information. Some people are saying: What did the Senate do?”

Sessions added that, “We did not, in my opinion, vet [the package] to get everybody’s feedback.”

“You’ve got to listen to your members,” he said. “What we’re trying to do is work toward resolution so we’re on the same page.”
