Portman says there’s one bill among the collection of gun regulation measures that he could get behind - one that would ban legal gun sales to a certain group of people. 

“I support not having people on the “no-fly list” being able to buy a firearm.” 

However, Portman says he would also want to see some safeguards to make sure the people who are on the official “no-fly list” are on there for legitimate reasons. 

Democrats in Congress have pushed several bills in recent months to tighten gun laws in the wake of high-profile shootings in California, Oregon and South Carolina.
