In the aftermath of the tragedy on Sunday in Las Vegas,  Congressman John Lewis is stepping up his fight for gun control.  Congressman Lewis will join four other house Democrats today on Capitol Hill to push for a bipartisan bill that was introduced two years ago.  This bill expands background checks to include sales at gun shows through classifieds and online.
