Conley hits McConnell over gun control filibuster

After launching a bid for mayor of Boston, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley has entered the national gun-control fray as well, with a letter criticizing US Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for saying he would be willing to block debate on a measure to expand background checks on gun buyers.

Conley singled out the Republican senator from Kentucky on Tuesday and urged him to “stop playing games” and allow a vote on the bill. McConnell has said that he would join a group of 13 other Republican senators to filibuster a gun control bill that Democrats plan to bring to the Senate floor Thursday.
