Democrats strive to comply with the most aggressive arms management laws in DECADES after winning the House
Democrats could make the biggest changes to the weapon laws that the United States has seen in 25 years, when the new term starts in January, but it is unlikely that the republicans will make it easy for them.
A new wave of politicians will enter the House next year after the Democratic party took it back in Tuesday's election. But the GOP still controls the Senate that passes federal laws.
However, with the Thousand Oaks, California mass shooting where 12 people died the following night, politicians have suggested that they take aggressive action to strengthen control over the firearm.

The leader of the minorities of the house, Nancy Pelosi, believes that there will be a change if more Democrats join the Congress in January.
"This new majority will not be afraid of our shadow," said the California Democrat, Mike Thompson, against the Wall Street Journal. We know we've been chosen to do a job, and we're going to do it. & # 39;
As chairman of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, the man who represents Napa County and parts of other provinces in Napa Valley, he would like to make general background checks obligatory when the new Congress is in full swing.
The importance of control for the Democrats was reflected in the funding that took place halfway through the campaigns.
Former mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, supported Everytown for Gun Safety and Americans for Responsible Solutions – a group founded by former Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot down in 2011 – raised $ 37 million in the 2018 elections.
Gun rights advocacy has, however, only spent about $ 20 million. NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker said many of the funds supported the confirmation of Supreme Court judges Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
It helped the Atlanta Democrat Lucy McBath beat the Republican Karen Handel.
Others enthusiastic about change are Jason Crow from Denver. He was vocal about the massive shootings at the Columbine High School and the Aurora, Colorado cinema

She left her job as stewardess of Delta Air Lines and now advocates arms control after her 17-year-old son, Jordan Davis, was shot and killed.
The story is set in a Netflix documentary titled 3 ½ Minutes, 10 Bullets and details about how the man who murdered her son was involved in an altercation, because the child played music too loudly. He was later convicted of murder.
While her first ads had gun ownership, she focused on healthcare as the Tuesday elections approached.
"Voters absolutely understood where Lucy insisted on the security of weapons, & # 39; said Everytown President John Feinblatt. & # 39; There was no doubt about the voter's opinion of Lucy's story. & # 39;
According to AP Votecast, who questioned about 90,000 people before and on the day of the elections, about 61 percent of people who voted in the meantime said that weapon laws in the US should be stricter.
About 13 percent of Democrats and 8 percent of all voters said that arms control had the biggest influence on their vote.
The leader of the democratic minority, Nancy Pelosi, told CNN on Thursday that she believes there will be significant action.

Others interested in change include Jason Crow of Denver – who has been vocal about the mass shootings at Columbine High School and the Aurora, Colorado cinema – and former CIA officer Abigail Spanberger. The Virginia woman supports a ban on certain firearms with characteristics in military style.
Bloomberg News, however, reports that Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, said Friday that photographing Thousand Oaks this week is likely to have no effect on gun ownership at federal level.
He told their national political reporter that it is highly unlikely that restrictions will be imposed on & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The largest Second Amendment implication of the election is that the pro-Second Amendment majority in the US Senate pro-Second Amendment judges will continue to confirm to the lower courts all the way to the Supreme Court, & # 39; NRA spokesperson, Baker, added to WSJ.
Veronica Escobar, representative of El Paso, Texas: & # 39; If the president or senate choose not to support it, it is fair to say so, but we must try and we must keep trying until we have finished & # 39;
The New York Times reports El Paso, representative of Texas Veronica Escobar said: & # 39; If the president or the senate choose not to support it, it is honest to them, but we must try and we must keep trying until we have it done. & # 39;
Some Democrats, including the representative of Lamb of Pennsylvania, Joe Cunningham from South Carolina and Katie Hill from Southern California, approach the centers.
They suggest banning items that allow semi-automatic guns to fire as automatic weapons.
"As Democrats, we should not try to make this a political issue that has to do with weapons legislation, because any weapon laws we advocate would not have prevented this, & # 39; said Hill. We lose credibility when we try to make it as if it were. & # 39;
