Transcript for Senate Democrats Lead Filibuster for Vote on Gun Legislation
Overnight, senate democrats took over the senate floor to force action on gun legislation. And Donald Trump says he's going to meet with the NRA to discuss ways to deny guns to people on the terror watch list. Jon Karl has all the latest. After that talk-a-thon we could see new votes as early as today. Reporter: Absolutely, George.

The NRA responded to trump's request for a meeting saying, quote, we are happy to meet with Donald Trump. The NRA's position on this issue has not changed.
