Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Penn., is "confident," he said Sunday on "Face the Nation," that he and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., will be able to muster enough Republican support in the Senate to pass an amendment that would expand background checks for gun purchases.
"We're close," said Toomey said, appearing with Manchin. "We're discussing with colleagues on both sides. We've got bipartisan support, but there is bipartisan opposition."
Toomey and Manchin, along with Sens. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., and Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced last week they had struck the deal, which would expand background checks for gun purchases to all commercial sales - including at gun shows and via the Internet.
On Saturday, Maine Sen. Susan Collins became the third Republican to back the proposal, which will appear as an amendment to the current gun safety bill being mulled by the Senate; Toomey said others have unofficially committed.

Sorry Joey, “gun control” laws do nothing to cut down on “gun violence”. BTW: Homicide is illegal. We’ve got laws against it. How’s that working out?
keep guns out of the hands of every Obama sympathizer.. problem solved virtually overnight
Or face the consequences.
they keep passing more and more laws and they don’t work.
they ar deliberately insane, they keep doing the same thing and expecting different results.
God help you if you keep up this pursuit to subjugate the citizens of the United States of America with your radical left wing extemist demokkkrat scumbag socialist agenda. You are a sorry excuse for someone who is supposed to defend and protect the constitution of this country. Which is an understatement. Not a single thing that has been proposed will do anything to decrease what you clowns have decided to name gun violence. Asshats.
God help you if you seek to confiscate the peeps gunz.
(Thread below) Munchin’ admits his bill will not prevent another Sandy Hook.
Then, what’s the point, Joe? I propose that it is to be found on top of your head.
Harumph harumph, your hoity toity Congress critter jobs .... we pay for this BS.
i assume you’re directing this to obama...?
Well, if the shoe fits, I guess he could also wear it. But then again he might like where the shoe goes. Even enjoy it possibly.
Actually, they are getting the exact results they want, diminished Liberty and re-election...
If God helps me, I feel good about that.
When you hear "We're from the Government and we're here to help you", you're in trouble.
The United States Senate is quite amazing.
While they Voting to Criminalize Law Abiding Citizens, they are Voting to Decriminalize Illegal Invaders.
Makes me want to start a Noose Manufacturing Company.
While they “ARE” Voting to Criminalize Law Abiding Citizens, they are Voting to Decriminalize Illegal Invaders.
God help America when the government no longer fears its citizens.
If they don’t fear us, it’s because they’re idiots:
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
I’ve never understood that after 237 years we still have to keep passing more laws. You’d think we would have perfected it by now.
