Asked at a Politico event Tuesday morning whether he owns a gun, Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) said he has "only 14" firearms. Portman wouldn't reveal what types of guns he owns, but he added that he has a gun safe. He also mentioned his family has a long hunting tradition.
Unlike some of his Republican Senate colleagues, Portman has not pledged to filibuster gun control legislation, because he said he wants to wait to see what is proposed before he decides how to act. "I also think, with regard to background checks, there are some problems with the current system," Portman said.
