Manchin-Toomey "Bipartisan" Gun Control Press Conference

Or as I like to call it, "The Pat Toomey Red State Democratic Senator Protection Act".

Update:

Some details coming out.

From the Devil is in the details file this tidbit:

- family transfers and some private sales (friends, neighbors, other individuals) are exempt from background checks

Which private sales aren't exempt?

Original Post:
Here's the preview of expanding background checks to all "commercial" sales.

Lots of details to work out but Chuck Schumer is on board so what could go wrong?

My biggest problem is let the Democrats carry this. They are the majority. It's a rare wedge issue that gets coverage that works against them and Toomey is pulling the wedge out.

Instead of stories being "Libs push red state Dems to chose between them and voters back home" the story is, "Republicans are divided and conservatives are so nuts they've even lost Pat Toomey"

Oh and Toomey will go back to being a nut case right winger when the budget is debated

It's not called the Stupid Party for nothing.
