The gun maker Colt has announced it is suspending the manufacturing of sporting rifles, including the AR-15, for the consumer market. Pressure has been growing on the Connecticut-based company for years, as AR-15-style guns have been used in numerous mass shootings, including Newtown, Connecticut; Orlando, Florida; and Parkland, Florida. Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he is awaiting guidance from the White House as to what President Trump thinks he’s comfortable signing regarding new gun control.
