- Second funeral service will take place for George HW Bush in Houston

Prominent Democrats plan on Thursday to begin ramping up calls for stronger gun control after the party took control of the House of Representatives.
The newly empowered Democratic majority in the House of Representatives is expected to introduce sweeping legislation to impose background checks on all gun sales as one of the first priorities in the incoming Congress of 2019, according to a report this week in Mother Jones.
Another funeral service will take place Thursday for former President George HW Bush, this time in Houston.
At the Thursday service at Houston’s St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, the Oak Ridge Boys will perform “Amazing Grace” and Reba McEntire will sing “The Lord’s Prayer,” according to the Associated Press.
