GOP Senator Says Gun Legislation Deserves A Vote (VIDEO)

Count Johnny Isakson as one Republican senator not on board with filibustering gun control legislation.

“There’s no, there’s no ambivalence on the gun issue, I think everybody knows what the issues are,” Isakson said Tuesday on “CBS This Morning.” “We have not seen the final draft of the legislation that was produced, I understand, last night, but I think it deserves a vote up or down.”

Host Norah O’Donnell said at the top of the segment that CBS contacted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and the 13 other Republicans who have vowed to filibuster gun legislation, but they all declined to be interviewed.
