Governors skeptical of Congress, but welcome new gun debate

WASHINGTON (AP) — Governors say the debate over gun control has changed after the Florida school shooting — a shift helped driven by public outrage and student activists.

Republican Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee puts it this way: “There’s no question we’re in a different environment.”

But governors are skeptical that Congress can seize the moment, overcome its partisan divide and enact new gun restrictions. So governors are preparing to take the lead and have states push ahead.
