    Of course, all of this would require the House GOP leadership to allow a vote on the proposal. As Wasserman notes, the only way to pass this would likely be with mostly Democratic support, which would break the so-called “Hastert Rule” again, something GOP leaders might be very reluctant to do. But if enough Senate Republicans support the proposal, continued pressure on House Republicans to allow a vote for the sake of the Newtown families — who will be actively lobbying in the days ahead — could get very intense.
