Speaker Kevin McCarthy did not say the House will consider an assault weapons ban when he was asked about the calls for reform, setting up a familiar showdown between President Joe Biden and Republicans in Congress following the tragic mass shooting in Nashville.

Roku plans to lay off another 200 workers, or 6% of its workforce, the video-streaming company said in a government filing on Thursday, just months after a prior round of layoffs in the fall that slashed 200 jobs.
