Republican Carlos Curbelo represented Florida in Congress until losing reelection in 2018. The Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando occurred during his House tenure, prompting him to join Democratic colleagues in proposing new gun safety measures -- but they were never passed. Curbelo joins Judy Woodruff to discuss the details of gun safety and why he doesn’t think it should be “a partisan issue.”
