Fox News Video: Senators Urge Backround Checks For Gun Shows, Internet Sales Ahead Of Key Test Vote
Published April 10, 2013 | FoxNews.com
Two prominent senators announced a proposed compromise on the thorny issue of gun background checks, urging mandatory checks for gun-show and Internet sales while exempting certain private transactions -- ahead of a key test vote Thursday.
The proposal Wednesday from Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., who had been meeting for days on the issue, was pitched as a bipartisan compromise and one aimed at easing opposition to firearms legislation as it heads to the Senate floor.
"This amendment is a genuine compromise," Toomey said.
"This is common sense. This is gun sense," Manchin added.
