In comments made on April 25, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) both said they were saddened gun control didn't pass on April 17 but assured reporters the measures would be brought up for another vote some time this year.
"I think we will bring the bill back before the end of the year... lots of Senators who thought it was safe to vote against it [on April 17] because of the intensity [pro-gun groups] are not so sure anymore," Schumer said.
Schumer said the intensity for gun control has increased since the failed vote for gun control legislation, and he thinks Americans are now "intense" in their desire for more gun control.
McCain concurred, saying, "I... agree with Chuck that I think the issue will come back." McCain supported the Manchin/Toomey gun control "compromise" the first time around; he said the toughest part of pushing it is that "Second Amendment defenders" are very active....

I think they need to try it every 6 months so people don’t forget before the next election.
McCain is getting worse the longer he’s there.
McCain just go away.
Somebody ping me the next time McCain pushes a conservative bill.
It’s people like McCain who have turned me against the GOP.
He is no more than a RAT.
Third party will have ensured that some sort of gun control would have passed. I understand your frustration though.
Fear of a primary challenge is the only thing keeping some rinos in line, at least on this issue.
The problem with Juan McCain is, he knows he’s doing his final term. Arizonans will never elect this scumbag again.
I got a questionaire from the RNC in the mail today. Bunch of questions about the direction the party should go. It was just a fishing operation for my money.
I wrote on it “ no money till the RINO’$ are gone ‘
Yeah, about an hour after the false flag they're working on.
By that time, you could be in a wheel chair and collecting social security, or more likely, we will all be pushing up daisies by then. He is disgusting.
Then we conservatives need to take over the Republican Party from the precinct level on up. I watched the Pat Robertson folks do exactly that in Iowa in 1987-88.
This must be where the term “harder headed then a government mule” came from. Jackasses both.
That’s what has been causing all the change in Michigan. Conservatives from the roots up.
These bitches are waiting, salivating, for another killer to spring out with some fresh bodies for these Marxists to dance upon. If there isn’t a psycho available, they’ll set one loose. Read Matt’s first book.
It’s what totalitarians do.
Don’t hold your breath!
Actually one of them couldn't take it anymore and is no longer a fan and both the others are wobbling, so he better act quick.
Please tell me this piece of crap is not running for Senate again..Seriously McCain, do everyone a favor and just retire, or just become a Dem, you know you want to..McCain is so desperate to get the love from the media and the left he will stoop to any level to kiss some Commie ass
Agree. We need to complete our takeover of the party from within. I will do what I can on the local level to further that process. There may be a time in near future to go third party. If immigration reform in its current form passes, our party will likely split up. One of two more election cycles after amnesty and the Republicans would no longer be viable on the national level.
