Breaking – Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) Reach a deal to expand background checks

Wonka Background Checks

This just coming in from over at Hotair that Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) have reached a deal to expand background checks…

The package will contain a requirement by the sellers to keep records of all background checks, but apparently not a federal registry. (…)

The agreement should secure enough bipartisan support for the Senate to proceed to debate on an overarching bill that would expand background checks, make gun trafficking a federal crime for the first time and bolster federal funding for school security plans. Senate Democratic leaders have said they will permit senators of both parties to introduce amendments to the measure.
