Toomey, Manchin Consider ‘Change’ to Troubled Gun Bill

untitled

How about trying to do something that would prevent the next Newtown shooting?
Check it out:

Scrambling for support, Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) are considering changing their plan to expand background checks for firearms purchasing.

One addition would “exempt residents who live hundreds of miles from a gun dealer” and appeal to Senators who are “weighing the political costs and benefits of a bill against the perception that they are chipping away at gun rights.” This consideration is most likely aimed at Senators Begich (D) and Murkowski (R) of Alaska, whose support is up in the air. Manchin was seen “huddling” with Alaska’s senators after a floor vote late last night.
