Washington Free Beacon staff writer Stephen Gutowski explained on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal on Monday that universal background checks “wouldn’t necessarily have stopped” the recent mass shootings in the United States.

Gutowski explained that, under current federal law, those in the business of selling firearms have to be licensed by the federal government, and those licensed individuals are regulated and perform background checks for gun sales.
