The Kentucky Republican has said, however, that he does not intend to put any gun legislation on the Senate floor unless President Donald Trump says he would sign it into law.

Manchin, referring to Trump, said, "We're going to know hopefully by tomorrow if there's something we can all agree on".

Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Chris Murphy, along with Republican Senator Pat Toomey, told reporters they had a 40-minute telephone conversation with Trump in which the president was engaged on the issue of gun control. Congress has not enacted any gun control legislation in decades.

"Thousands of people, thousands of children have died since Senator McConnell first refused to take up our bills". "Some things will never happen", he added, without elaborating.

The White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the meeting but sought to play down expectations for any decision being made and communicated to senators on Thursday.

Lawmakers are calling on Trump to be clearer about his positions in a debate sparked by mass shootings last month in Texas and Ohio.

"We're looking at background checks, and we're looking at putting everything together in a unified way so that we can have something that's meaningful", he continued.

"We have to protect our second amendment very strongly and we will always do that". "It's very important to all of us".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi touted three gun measures - part of a coordinated strategy between House and Senate Democrats to push Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell to allow a vote on such bills, including universal background check legislation that passed the House in February.

The bipartisan Toomey-Manchin legislation failed to pass the Senate in 2013, and many Republicans continue to oppose the idea as an infringement on gun rights.

"I can assure you the bill. has over 85 percent approval and that's with gun owners and everyone else saying if you go to a commercial transaction, gun show, or on the Internet, don't you think you ought to know who wants to buy that gun and for what goal and what their background is?"

Over in the House, No. 2 Democrat Steny Hoyer of Maryland said the chamber would vote in October on a red flag bill aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of mentally ill people or those convicted of hate crimes, along with legislation to ban high capacity gun magazines.
